In Malaysia, Sathya Sai Aradhana Mahotsavam of April 2013 was observed with spiritual, educational, service and cultural programmes as well as mutual sharing of Sai experiences.
The Sathya Sai Baba Centres and Bhajan units of Desa Mentari, Petaling Jaya, Subang Jaya, Sri Muda, Seputeh, Bangsar and Langkawi organised public programmes in Veda chanting and Bhajans. They also distributed dry rations, delicious hot meals, toiletries, mattresses, pillows and essentials to the homeless, a home for the elderly, other shelters for the needy and to students at the Myanmar school.
In addition, members of the Sri Muda Centre donated a five-door refrigerator and repaired electrical wiring, toilets and leaking water pipes at a home for seniors. In Langkawi, Sathya Sai devotees visited an orphanage where children were served homemade lunches, and, for the Langkawi Hospital, gifts were given to 115 patients and 64 units of blood were collected and donated.
In the North, Sathya Sai devotees of the Penang Centre visited the “Lighthouse,” a shelter for the poor and the infirm, where they lovingly served tea and, later, dinner to the 80 inmates.
