96th Birthday Celebration – Some Photos
Sairam. Bhagawan’s 96th Birthday Celebration was a welcome relief for hundreds of devotees who attended on Tuesday. Nearly a 1000 devotees came during the day; they all went about darshan in a disciplined manner, as is typical amongst Sai devotees. The safe management volunteers on duty assisted them with the checkin/checkout and the safe distancing protocols. Volunteers constantly disinfected the high-touch surfaces to keep everyone safe. The evening bhajans were attended by over 100 devotees, limited by the safe management protocols. Hundreds of others joined the bhajans online through the Live transmission. Here is a recording of the morning prayers at the Sai Centre: https://youtu.be/MVwPsNr7TB4, and the evening bhajan https://youtu.be/VQjjWkNnIgs.

Bhagawan’s 96th Birthday Celebrations
On-site at the Sai Centre & Live through YouTube
Bhagawan’s 96th Birthday will be celebrated with opening of the Sathya Sai Baba Centre through the day for Darshan and prayers, and with evening bhajans (7:30 pm-9:00 pm) at the Sai Centre on 23rd November 2021. This year, the Birthday is also part of the Silver Jubilee Celebrations of the Sai Temple (Sathya Sai Baba Centre). The Sai Centre was inaugurated in September 1986, and hence completed 25 years in its service to the community, volunteers and devotees.
If you wish to have Darshan at the Sai Centre altar, you may visit any time between 9 am and 1 pm in the morning, or between 3 pm and 6 pm in the afternoon. No prior-registration is needed. Darshan closes at 6 pm, for volunteers to prepare the venue for the evening bhajans. After this time, no darshan walk-ins will be allowed.
Evening bhajans on-site are based on registration only. The programme will also be live-streamed on our YouTube channel. You may alternatively watch the programme live on YouTube instead of being seated in the Sai Centre.
Let us all join in the bhajans and pray to Bhagawan and seek His blessings. Seating capacity at the venue is limited; hence we have a registration process. As per Government rules, only fully vaccinated devotees can participate in this event on-site. Please use this link to register: Registration Link for Birthday Evening Bhajans. Registration is open.
Alternatively, you may also join us online through live streaming through our YouTube channel Sai Society YouTube Channel.

- The Story of the Sathya Sai Baba Centre
The Story of the Sathya Sai Baba Centre (Video)
Sairam! As part of the Silver Jubilee Celebrations of the Sathya Sai Baba Centre in Singapore, we wrote about the construction of the building and its inauguration. But just how did the idea for the building come about? And how did our dear Bhagawan make it happen? Let us hear from the principal instrument in this initiative – 𝙋𝙧𝙤𝙛 𝙔𝙚𝙤𝙝 𝙆𝙞𝙖𝙣 𝙃𝙞𝙖𝙣, whose strong desire to have a premises for Sai Society’s activities in Singapore was blessed by Bhagawan. Let us hear from him about his journey to Sai and how things fell into place for the birth of the Sai Centre building.

- Silver Jubilee of our Sai Temple
Silver Jubilee Celebrations of Sai Centre
Sairam. Let us all join together to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of our Sai Temple in Singapore – the Sathya Sai Baba Centre at 133 Moulmein Road. It was formally inaugurated on 21st September 1996 by the former President of Republic of Singapore, Mr. Wee Kim Wee. It was earlier consecrated through a multi-faith ceremony. The plaque at the entrance of the building symbolises the main purpose of the building and the Sai temple it houses. For more details on how the Sai Centre came about, please visit the Sai Centre’s History page.
We have put together a series of programmes for the month of September to mark the Silver Jubilee. All the programmes will be streamed through our YouTube channel. The Ganesh Chaturthi bhajans will also be held at the Centre, and streamed live from there. The on-site attendance requires registration, and this information has been published in a separate post.
The speakers who have agreed to conduct the 3 Satsangs over 3 weekends are familiar to us – all of them have spoken at the Sai Centre before. Sri Vedanarayanan and Sri Ravi Kumar from Prasanthi Nilayam, and Smt. Geetha Mohan Ram from the USA will be speaking at the Satsangs. Please see below the programmes. Please mark your dairy and participate in the programmes. We also have Seva programmes in September.
Look forward to your participation in the programmes.
