The Youth programme continued next. Presented as a first person experience of an enthusiastic and earnest researcher from International Humanitarian Organisations, who ‘saincidentally’ bumped into the Selfess service arena of Sathya Sai International Organisations, the programme featured the researcher’s astounding experiences, while travelling all over the globe, in a six-month mission to cover 126 countries under the Sai organisational network. Reaching The Philippines, the researcher announced, ‘enough is enough of researching and reporting; now I have to be a part of this most wonderful mission’… This was the moment of real transformation of the ‘first-person’ into a true Sai Sevak… learning in practical life The Truth behind Bhagawan’s Mission, ‘Service To Man Is Service To God’…
The programme was interspersed with beautiful songs, ably conducted by Bro Vivek from California, video on Bhagawan and His Selfless Mission and beautiful prayerful songs.
