The SSIO of the mid-Atlantic region, USA, celebrated its 50th anniversary during its 40th annual regional retreat, held from 22nd to 25th May 2015, at Camp Westmont, Pennsylvania. More than 840 Sathya Sai organisation members enjoyed the retreat during the USA’s Memorial Day holiday weekend, amidst the lush Poconos Mountains. The beautiful altar transported one back to Prasanthi Nilayam, and the program included a beautiful mural painted by SSE children, an exhibition on the history of the Sathya Sai organisation in Zone 1, cultural programmes by the children and youth, melodious bhajans, and engaging workshops. Dr. Dalton Amorim of Brazil shared his life-transforming experiences involving Bhagawan and exhorted everyone to become beacons of light and spread love amongst all. Dr. Shashank Shah delighted participants with an in-depth look at Bhagawan’s life, giving inspiring examples of His love for His family, friends, animals, students, and humanity.
