Om Sai Mandir’s Service Programs are Free and Accessible to Everyone Irrespective of their Religious Background or Other Beliefs
Love All, Serve All! This is the message Baba has taught us to live by. Sai Baba did not preach any religion. Instead, He embraced every religion, every belief as a pathway to one truth. As such, he did not establish a religious order. Instead, He taught us to love everyone and serve everyone. Love is our religion, service of others is our fundamental duty, and acceptance of each and every person as our universal brethren is our sacred belief.
Om Sai Mandir, though established for religious purposes, does not discriminate against anyone wishing to gain benefit of its service programs. Anyone, from any religion, can come to the mandir and seek assistance and benefit from the following SEVA programs:
