A joyous program commemorating the 96th Birthday of Bhagawan was organized on November 23, 2021. There were more than 380 participants from the countries of Zone 8. The celebration was held online in some places and in person, where feasible.  A wonderful concert was held with poems and songs about Sri Sathya Sai Baba. The program also included videos of Swami, His photographs, and parables. The concert also included a video greeting from the children, which touched everyone’s heart and filled them with love and joy. The children staged a play titled, ‘True Worship’ – which was made into a wonderful film. Sai Spiritual Education (SSE) children made a video titled, ‘Swami’s Golden Words’ with Swami’s quotes.

In some Sri Sathya Sai Centers and Groups from Siberia, roundtable meetings were held in person and online on various spiritual and practical topics. The participants shared their personal experience of spiritual transformation, and served food to needy people, as well as animals and birds.
