Realise the Oneness Between God, Nature and Man
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Loving Sai Rams to all of you.
This is the time for us to intensify our efforts to express our gratitude and love to our Lord, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, who incarnated on earth for our redemption. He has showered His grace and unconditional love on all of us. He is our eternal companion guiding and guarding us everywhere, ever. His message is love and He wants us to realize our true nature which is love. The best way for us to express our gratitude to Swami is by following His teachings sincerely and intensely so that our life is His Message.
One of His main teachings is to see oneness in everything. It is ignorance to see God, Nature and man as different. In fact, wisdom lies in realising the oneness between God, Nature and Man. This oneness can be realised most effectively through the practice of the five human values and placing a ceiling on desires. In recent times, we have witnessed many natural disasters because of our neglect of Mother Earth and the environment. However, these catastrophes can be mitigated or reversed by following Swami’s advice, which also brings us closer to God and Nature, which is our true identity.
To delve deep into the teachings of Swami, the SSSIO held its first Go Green Conference in July 2018 in Prasanthi Nilayam – attended by over 1,200 delegates from around 70 countries. Following the resolutions from the Conference, many Go Green Initiatives were implemented around the world. These initiatives are nicely depicted through an inspiring and informative video by the SSSIO.

April 24 is Sri Sathya Sai Aradhana Mahotsavam Day which is also observed as Human Values Day by the SSSIO. April 22 is Earth Day, observed worldwide. In this context, I am happy to enclose a document which contains the divine messages of Bhagawan on this theme.
On this auspicious occasion, dear brothers and sisters, let us offer our gratitude and flower of worship to our loving Lord, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and serve Mother Earth by treading softly, moving reverentially and utilising her resources gratefully.
Jai Sai Ram.
With loving regards,
