The future of the country depends on the skill and the sincerity of the youth. Therefore, the necessary enthusiasm and encouragement must be general among the youth. All my hopes are based on the students, the youth. They are very dear to me.
Sri Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 9/Ch.34
The Young Adults International Engagement (YAIE) subcommittee aims to provide Sai Young Adults (YAs) with the tools, materials and knowledge to support and guide them in sharing Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s Message, His Universal Teachings and the work of the Sri Sathya Sai International Organization (SSSIO) at various public outreach events such as, places of work and study, interfaith programmes, and other public forums such as international conferences and community-based events.
Either individually or collectively, many YAs are engaging with their communities in meaninful ways. This committee supports the creation and maintenance of a structure that amplifies these efforts and initiatives that will further benefit from increased public participation and engagement.
Sai YAs across the world already represent the SSSIO in various public outreach forums and events. The YAIE aims to build on this work by sharing additional opportunties, and providing the tools and knowledge necessary for every YA to be a confident representative of YA and SSSIO initiatives that build on Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s message and to explore more opportunities internationally.
With your support, we can aptly and confidently spread Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s Love and message.
Sri Sathya Sai Compendium
The Young Adults International Engagement and Pathways Subcommittees present the SSSIO Sri Sathya Sai Compendium for Sai Young Adults: A compendium and guidebook for the Young Adults by the Young Adults to encourage the comprehensive understanding of Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s Life, Mission and Legacy.
The compendium hopes to provide a clear, concise understanding of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, the SSSIO, and the purpose of YAs and the International YA Programme. With over 25 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) based on the results of a worldwide survey of more than 500 YAs, spanning themes of ‘Who is Sri Sathya Sai Baba,’ to ‘Traditions or Customs and Misconceptions,’ this compendium seeks to inspire open communication on the various topics that may sometimes be difficult to ask openly. It also includes reflection points that are conducive to individual introspection as well as group discussion. Every FAQ includes a refreshing YA perspective accompanied by Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s Divine words to make it easier for YAs to understand His Universal teachings. This is designed to serve all devotees, whether they are new to Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings or looking to deepen their connection with Him.
We hope that the compendium will serve its purpose to foster open communication, deeper reflection, provide a foundational understanding of what it means to be a Sai Young Adult, and strengthen our spiritual pursuit.
