The Sathya Sai
Organization of Switzerland
The Sathya Sai
International Organization of Switzerland is a spiritual
organization. Its fundamental objectives are to revive in all the religions
the human values like truth, right action, peace, love and non-violence, and
the practice of these values in our daily life.
« Our real nature
is not found within the littleness of our personal interest but in the
universal love. ».
Believing in the inherent divinity of everything
implies belief in all the creation and consequently in the unity of all the
religions - which have a common base linking all beings.
The aim of all the activities of the Sathya Sai
Organization of Switzerland is to provide support to all the members in their spiritual
development and in the forming of a strong character. This is independent of
the place where he/she lives or his status – whether they are Christians,
Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus or believers in another religion.
« Believe in God –
because there is only one God for the whole of humanity – even if He is
called by different names ». « Respect all the religions
– because none of them encourages negative tendencies / characteristics in
human beings. All religions exhort humanity to have noble ideals.»
By knowing this fact, and having the feeling
which is basis of unity in diversity, the global crisis can be overcome –
especially that which affects families and education. A positive
transformation of the society can be brought about by the change in the
conduct of each person.
« When there is right action (dharma)
in the heart, the beauty of the character is visible. If there is beauty in
the character, there is harmony in the home. When there is harmony in the
home, there is order and discipline in the nation. When there is order in
the nation, peace will prevail in the world. ».
« At present, the main task is to develop
love. Only love can save the world ».
The Sathya Sai International Organization of
Switzerland bears the name of
its founder, who, through His exemplary life and His teachings of the
highest principles of Truth, Right Action, Divine Love, peace and
non-violence, has inspired millions of human beings in the whole world.
« My life is My message ».
Sathya Sai Baba does not attach any importance
to his fame – by and in the Organization. “ I do not want your
veneration but your transformation”. This depends upon the
development and the recognition of the good in all its forms. To reach
this goal, we should have inner knowledge; each one is his or her own

ceiling on desires: do not waste food, nor time, nor money nor energy. Do
not waste your life!”

themes are discussed help the participants to reinforce their own potential.
The quotations from Sai Baba, like those from other religions, help as a
basis for these study circles.
. The songs (bhajan) and mantras
from various religions as well as silent contemplation, meditation and
. Analysis of human values that are
carried out as specific programs for children, adolescents, parents, and
adults as well as various professional groups.

rather in doing with pleasure what we have to do.”
