24 April : Sri Sathya Sai Baba death anniversary.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba death anniversary

"Service is the highest spiritual discipline. Prayer and meditation, or knowledge of scripture and Vedanta (holy scriptures of India), cannot help you reach the goal as quickly as service can. Service has a double effect, it extinguishes the ego and gives bliss." - Sri Sathya Sai Baba.


Sri Sathya Sai Baba (born as Sathyanarayana Raju; 23 November 1926 - 24 April 2011) was an Indian guru and spiritual leader. He claimed to be the reincarnation of Sai Baba of Shirdi, who was also considered by his followers to be an avatar, spiritual saint and miracle worker, and who died in 1918.
