Call Sai is a free, confidential helpline service which serves our members by providing information about resources and services available to you. It does not endorse any specific resources, services, or providers, nor does it have any financial relationship with any of these. Any communication between Call Sai volunteers and callers is voluntary and informational only; it does not create a provider-client relationship with Call Sai. Importantly, Call Sai is an informational resource only.

(272) CALL SAI or (272) 225-5724

While Call Sai volunteers provide information to the best of their ability and based on the information available to them, callers are responsible for checking the accuracy, completeness, content, suitability, and timeliness of all information. Call Sai makes no representations, guarantees, or warranties, expressed, implied, or statutory as to the accuracy, completeness, content, suitability, and timeliness of the information provided. This information is provided on an “as is” basis.

Call Sai specifically disclaims liability for any claims or damages, if any, from the provision of information or assistance, either by volunteers or by third-party service providers or organizations identified by Call Sai volunteers. As Call Sai is an informational resource only, it does not endorse, warrant, or independently verify any of the services, products, or resources provided by outside agencies, organizations, or providers.

While our aim is to refer callers only to volunteers, service providers and organizations that operate in a safe, inclusive, and non-discriminatory manner, an informational referral from Call Sai is not an endorsement or representation of these third-parties, either as to the quality of the service provided or their operational policies. Call Sai does not assume any responsibility or liability for any conditions, hazards, or risks or for any related personal injuries or liabilities or property damage arising directly or indirectly from an individual’s use of services or participation in activities of these service providers and organizations. Callers should use their reasonable discretion in choosing a service or resource provider which will serve their needs, and not rely solely on information provided by Call Sai volunteers.

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES INVOLVING THIRD-PARTY PROFESSIONALS

In limited situations, Call Sai may be able to connect you to a third-party professional for specific areas of need (e.g., medical, legal, financial support). In these specific situations, Call Sai’s role is only to provide basic information about these third-party professionals. These individuals are not Call Sai employees or contractors, nor are they under Call Sai’s control or direction. To the extent there is any special relationship created between the caller and the service provider (e.g., physician-patient, attorney-client, etc.), that relationship will be governed by an independent agreement between the caller and the service provider, and not with Call Sai either as a party or intermediary.

Brief History

About

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.
