In every difficulty and adversity, you will see how God through His Divine hand is directing you to face a situation, to become stronger. In every situation, take a step back and observe how God is creating an opportunity for you to become more like Him, to become more like God. So, every moment remind yourself. This is all that is needed to be done. The more you believe in it, the more you become that. Once you become that, there is nothing more to be achieved. Everything else looks very ordinary. - Baba

Sri Sathya Sai Sanjeevani Centres for Child Heart Care successfully performed over 100 totally FREE of cost child heart surgeries and interventions, during the lockdown period in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Against much odds, the Sanjeevani team embarked upon this daring journey of providing essential and life-saving services to sick children with Congenital Heart Disease. With careful consideration, planning, and preparedness, the team devised a strategy to protect both staff and patients. They also found innovative ways to deal with limited access and availability of consumables and protective gear like masks and gowns by making them in-house. Surgical and intervention services began on April 30, 2020 and over the last five weeks more than 100 families came during these tumultuous time. Having received the gift of life, they returned home with a healthy child, and immense hope for their bright future in their hearts.

'SWADHYAYA', a New Radio Programme
on SANATHANA VANI
Swadhyaya is the practice of self-study and self-analysis. Sva is ‘self’ and Adhyaya means ‘investigation or inquiry’. It is one of the Niyamas (code of conduct) of Patanjali’s eight-fold path which is traditionally attributed to the study of sacred texts. Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai enunciates, “The end of all, the essence, the culmination of all knowledge of all scriptures is Vedanta.”
In this new series on Sanathana Vani, 'Swadhyaya', primarily addressed to the students of the Sri Sathya Sai University for Human Excellence, Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai magnanimously expounds the Highest of Truths from Upanishads. He propels, encourages, and enlightens us through the Vedantic Teachings.
The programme will be aired on Sanathana Vani at 8 PM IST everyday and will be made available in other platforms soon.
To attain a greater understanding of one’s true being, the study of scriptures is important and practicing Swadhyaya everyday helps us on the path of
