In this time of uncertainty and fear throughout the world, it is spiritually uplifting for all of us to think of God more and more. Mahashivarathri, which was recently celebrated around the world, gave us a boon that carries beyond the date of celebration. The love and grace of Sai Shiva is our strength and courage, today and for ever. The divine energy and love experienced during Shivarathri will always sustain us. This will help us focus on our individual Sadhana and service to the world and embrace Bhagawan even more into our lives. He has promised us “why fear, when I am here.” Those powerful words will help us today live a peaceful, balanced and spiritual life devoid of fear and anxiety. Our faith and our prayers will help all of mankind. It will make us ready to "Love All, Serve All".
