Pre-World Conference Study Guides

In a recent letter from Dr. Narendranath Reddy, Chairman of the Prasanthi Council, we have been encouraged to begin preparations for the Tenth World Conference to be held in Prasanthi Nilayam in November 2015, by beginning the study of special materials on the subjects of Love and Selfless Service. The theme of the Conference is “Love is the source; Love is the path; Love is the goal”. Pre-world conferences will be held in all 11 zones in preparation for this Tenth World Conference.  There will be more details of the pre-world conference in our zone (zone 1) coming soon.  In the meantime, members of our region have the opportunity to begin this study.  It will also be included in the pre-event sadhana for Global Akhanda Bhajans and Swami's 89th Birthday Celebrations.

We have been sent two study-guides, one on Love and one on Selfless Service, which summarize the essential teachings of Swami about these important subjects. Please note that the corresponding web links to download the two study-guides are given below:

http://sathyasai.org/world-conference-2015/StudyGuide-SelflessService.pdf

You may download these documents for your use in Study Circles and for your personal study.  This study material is deep, profound and quite extensive. It may take a whole year to finish. At minimum, we encourage to study from now till Swami's Birthday on November 23, 2014.
