In April 2015, public meetings were held in all regions of Zone 8 to bring Bhagawan’s priceless teachings to the interested public. The events were attended by 212 SSIO members and more than 140 others. The meeting presented information on the life and teachings of Sri Sathya Sai Baba as well as on human values. In addition, Sathya Sai members spoke about Bhagawan’s childhood, their own experiences, the Sathya Sai organisation, and its work at different levels. Films about service projects were screened. The meetings ended with informal discussions during a tea break and with the distribution of a DVD featuring Bhagawan’s quotations, and relevant books and calendars. Many visitors, surprised at the magnitude of work of the Sathya Sai mission and inspired by the loving experiences of Sathya Sai devotees, declared an interest in learning more about Bhagawan and the SSIO, and participating in service projects.
