Subject: SSSGC Zone 1-Green Team-Activities to Offer for Mother Easwaramma Day


Sai Ram Dear National Presidents,

Please distribute the following offering from our Zonal Green Team:

Sairam All:

The GREEN TEAM has taken up Water Conservation as the first project, which will be referred to as WATER SENSE. We present many educational activities and actionable projects to raise awareness of effective solutions and directly preserve water for our Mother Earth. We hope that you will be able to take one or many more of these activities and present this offering for Mother Easwaramma Day.  One of the Divine Mother’s wishes was to provide drinking water to millions and with Swami’s blessings, it culminated in the Sathya Sai Water Project. May this serve as our inspiration to pave the way to take care of the 5 elements, we pray to Swami to bless us with WATER SENSE.

WATER SENSE activities/projects are presented as-

WATER SENSE-At Home-Personal Use

WATER SENSE-At Home-Use of Appliances

WATER SENSE-In the Garden -Upcoming

WATER SENSE-In the Community.

What is the goal? To transform and revere the five elements which is Man’s inherent nature. Revering water is the first step to realizing God within you. As a Center, please reach out to your service coordinator or SSSE coordinator so you can offer this gift of WATER SENSE to Mother Easwaramma and Swami on Mother Easwaramma Day. 

How can I catalog my progress? Take photos/draw pictures/clip videos to implement these simple activities and send us new ones to share with everyone in 2 ways.

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.
