Your Connection to Prasanthi Nilayam
SAI INSPIRES Zone 1 Bulletin October 19, 2023
My task comprises protection of Vedas , fostering Vedic scholars , and establishment of righteousness. All three are interdependent. Fostering Vedic scholars helps both the Vedas and dharma, so I assure them that their scholarship and sincerity will not go unrewarded. The era of neglect has ended.

Importance of Sacrifice
Life is sustained by the sacrifice of the living. Every being, from the tiniest amoeba to the most profound scholar, is perpetually engaged in sacrifice. The mother sacrifices for the child, the father for the progeny, the friend for the friend, the individual for the group, the present for the sake of the future, the rich for the poor, the weak for the strong - it is all yajna, sacrifice, offering. 01 October 1962
To drive home the value and significance of the inner message of sacrifice, the outer visible Yagna is a ceremony that is conducted to foster awareness and manifestation of that sacred principle of sacrifice, which is central to our inner reality and which manifests with the spirit of giving to society the wealth, knowledge and skills one possesses. Bhagawan Baba gathered many blessed Vedic scholars and pandits from around India on the 1st of October, 1962 to Prasanthi Nilayam to inaugurate a most sacred Yagna, which continues to be offered every year.
