In early October 2018, the School of Joy near St. Petersburg once more opened its doors to the SSEHV programme. The event was a continuation of the children’s and family camp held on the shores of Lake Ladoga earlier in the summer in which 30 participants, including 12 Sathya Sai children, attended. The children narrated a parable which emphasized that if thoughts are good, then habits, actions, character and life will similarly be good. The celebration ended with a hymn, sung by both adults and children.
