During 20th–22nd October 2017, SSIO members held a regional conference in the Urals area of Russia, attended by 48 people from 13 Russian cities. The conference opened with uplifting talks about the joy of Sathya Sai’s works, followed by wonderful devotional singing. The audience greatly enjoyed a concert, bursting with joyous songs, poems, and dances. In keeping with the conference’s focus on good health, the second day began with yoga classes, and the final day of the conference featured a Kazakh choir presenting a concert based on parables such as “The Emperor’s Disease,” “About Happiness,” and “The Barber.”
