Puttaparthi : A campus of the Sri Sathya Sai University will be set up at Muddenahalli by Sri Sathya Sai Baba. This campus will offer degree courses to help students from the area acquire a degree without having to incur the costs of coming to a college in Bangalore. Like all of Baba’s institutions, this too will be totally free of charge.

Baba made this announcement on Sunday evening while addressing a huge gathering of devotees on the occasion of his 83rd birthday celebrations at the Sai Kulwanth Hall, Prashanti Nilayam. Presently, two schools aided by Baba’s Trust offer SSLC and CBSC schooling free of charge.

Over a lakh of devotees thronged Prashanti Nilayam on Sunday for the birthday celebrations. The bedecked ashram wore a festive look. Rameshwar Thakur, Governor of Karnataka, and cricketer Sunil Gavaskar were among the devotees.

Baba stressed on the need to cultivate love. He called on the devotees to harbour love for all, regardless of whether others help or hurt them.

Bhajans and talks on spirituality marked the occasion. “It is only the seeds of love that can lead a person to peace and out of this epidemic of turmoil all around. And this is just what Baba is doing. This is what his birthday is all about”, said C Sreenivas, who has been closely associated with Baba for decades and has worked on all his major social welfare projects.

Sreenivas summed up the significance of the celebrations aptly, “Baba’s discourse on Saturday dwelt on love. It is perceptible here. This is what we need in these troubled times”.
