Sai Ram,

Sri Sathya Sai Global Council-USA. 


August 12, 2021 


Dear Doctors and allied health professionals:  


Sairam to all of you. 


Let me offer my humble pranams at the lotus feet of our Beloved Lord Sri Sathya Sai Baba. We are truly blessed to have joined the Global Council which unifies the entire world. Our vision will be to serve the poor and those in need in every part of the world with the guidance given by Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.  


Our beloved Swami says, “It is your good fortune that you have become doctors. Sacrifice is the hallmark of a true doctor. So, doctors should have the spirit of sacrifice. They should be compassionate and considerate towards the poor. There are many poor people who are losing their lives as they cannot afford costly treatment. Your love alone can sustain such lives. The more you develop the spirit of sacrifice in you, the greater will be the world’s progress.” (Sri Sathya Sai Baba, January 19, 2001) 


Our first goal is to develop a database of all physicians/allied health professionals who are members of the SSSGC centers in the U.S.A. and then all of Zone 1(Canada and West Indies). We can then work with physicians from other zones and coordinate all aspects of medical service across the world. We will also conduct medical camps in Prasanthi Nilayam during Gurupurnima and Swami’s Birthday. 


When we all work together and focus on serving with no concern for our position and status, Swami will bring about the healing of the patients. I call upon all of you to provide your information so that you are aware of every medical service opportunity available. I invite you to share your ideas and tools that may help us deliver medical care in a well-organized and efficient manner. 


In loving service of Sai, 


Geetha Kamath, M.D., 

National Medical Director, U.S.A. 


“Even more than the drugs the doctors prescribe, the sweet, soft words they speak and the love and sympathy they evince can cure better and quicker the illness of their patients. Look upon them as your own kith and kin, as your special guests and as your closest friends and attend to them lovingly and with flinching care. I call upon you to maintain this attitude in every situation.”

 – Sri Sathya Sai Baba, August 28th, 1976. 

Brief History


Sri Sathya Sai Baba was born in Puttaparthi on Nov 23, 1926 – an auspicious Monday in the lunar month of Kartika, when Lord Shiva is especially adored.

His Life
Sri Sathya Sai Baba was born in Puttaparthi on Nov 23, 1926 – an auspicious Monday in the lunar month of Kartika, when Lord Shiva is especially adored. He was given the name Sathyanarayana Raju. What intrigued His mother Easwaramma, most was the unbounded compassion her little Sathya had particularly for the poor and downtrodden. Even as a toddler, He insisted that the beggar at the door be served well in spite of their own limited means and would often give His own share to the needy. When He began school, His playmates were inspired by His ability to lead them to be socially responsible, spiritually aware, endowed with individual and national character. His friends were often fascinated by His extraordinary powers of creating things out of thin air, knowing the future, deep understanding of scriptural wisdom and so on.
The Childhood

The Raju family of Puttaparthi was noted for its piety since the days of the renowned sage, Venkavadhootha, a saintly ancestor who was looked upon as a Guru in hundreds of villages around. Not only did the family build and endow the Gopalaswami Temple (dedicated to Lord Krishna), but Sri Ratnakaram Kondama Raju, the grandfather of Baba’s physical frame, dedicated a temple to Sathyabhama, consort of Lord Krishna, a deity to whom this type of homage is seldom offered in any part of India. Peasants by vocation, they were known for their musical and dramatic talent and were much involved in the propagation of the sacred scriptures through village plays and musicals. Consequently, the family was given the name ‘Bhat Raju’ (Bhat – priest)

The Advent

23rd of November, 1926, the Hindu year of Akshaya, meaning, the Never-declining, the Ever-full. It was the time of sunrise and the villagers were chanting the names of Lord Shiva, remembering that the day was Karthika Somavara, a Monday of the Holy Month of Karthika, devoted to the puja (worship) of Shiva. That day was made even more auspicious for Shiva worship because the ascendant star was Ardra (the star of Shiva). On this day, when these rare and propitious signs came together, the people thronged the temples of the Lord to offer special pujas and pray for His benediction.
