About 200 SSIO members of South America, including 35 youth, attended a Pre-World Conference from 6th to 8th March 2015, in Mendes, Rio de Janeiro. The conference was broadcast live online over two Sai web-TV channels, www.z2bsaimedia.tumblr.com and http://www.tvsaiargentina.tumblr.com, enabling more than 2,500 Sathya Sai devotees to view the event on the web. The conference venue, a monastery built by Catholic monks, provided a suitable backdrop for talks and discussions about the spiritual journey and the conference theme of love and selfless service. Senior SSIO leaders gave inspiring talks on these themes, and in addition to study circles for SSIO members, special activities were organised for the youth and the children.
