A National Retreat for all National & State office bearers of the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations, India was conducted at Brindavan in Whitefield, Bangalore on March 31st and April1st 2012.

A total of 150  delegates (both men and women) consisting of all National coordinators including the All India President, State Presidents, State Trust Conveners, State Coordinators and Youth Coordinators of the different wings of the organisation assembled  for this two day retreat.

The purpose of the retreat was to invite suggestions and proposals from the youth of the various states to suggest the “Way Forward” for the All India Seva organisations, keeping in mind both the  challenges and opportunities.

The youth who came  from different parts of the country,  from Himachal  to Kerala, and Gujarat to Manipur,  put forth their proposals on varied topics in the  Educational, Spiritual and Service wings.

The  topics that were covered in the retreat were Bhajans, Vedam, Meditation, Sadhana Camps, Retreats, Study Circle and Sai Literature under the Spiritual wing,   Sathya Sai Balvikas , Sai Schools under the Education wing ,  Seva Dal training and  Youth activities under the  Service wing. Additionally they also covered other topics like incorporation of adequate and right technology, additional Seva activities, improvement in existing activities, addressing key social issues  and organisational structure and  resource management.

The well researched presentations gave extensive suggestions for improvements at both  the micro and macro levels.  Every presentation was followed by interactive discussions with the audience who added further inputs to the proposals.

The Radio Sai team, too, put forth their  proposal to  expand the reach of  Bhagawan Baba’s message to remote corners of India in different regional languages  using the latest technological advances.

The All India President of the Sri Sathya Sai Organisations, Mr. Srinivasan, while addressing the delegates, said that the grandeur of the Divine Mission should now be unveiled with the youth playing a greater role in the mainstream activities of the organisation.

This retreat will be instrumental in creating some land mark decisions to further strengthen  the momentum  in spreading the Love and Message of Bhagawan.

This was the First ever National Retreat organised by the Sri Sathya Sai Organisations of India.
