Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Om Sri Sai Ram.
The Sathya Sai International Organisation (SSIO) will hold the 11th World Conference in
Prasanthi Nilayam in November 2020, in conjunction with the 95th Birthday celebrations of
our Lord, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. The theme of the Conference is “Unity is
Divinity; Purity is Enlightenment”. In preparation for this landmark event, the SSIO will
organise Pre-World Conferences in all Zones.
Bhagawan has urged us to practise unity and purity which are essential to realize our innate
divinity and the divinity inherent in all creation and attain enlightenment. Hence, there are
two Study Guides: one on Unity and the second one on Purity. Each chapter of the two
Guides illustrates a seminal point with quotes from Swami, with references. The study
Guides also contain seven divine discourses on Unity and four on Purity. Some Zones may
wish to translate these important publications into local languages.
Please see enclosed two Study Guides, one on Unity and one on Purity. You may also

download the Study Guides from: http://www.sathyasai.org/announcement/eleventh-

The online Study Guides have quotes with links to the discourses. In addition, where
possible, we will provide links to audio and video recordings of the divine discourses.
Volunteers are working tirelessly to prepare Workbooks and Storybooks to assist with
study circle discussions on the Study Guides. These multi-media materials will be available
online and on social media.
The Study Guides are being sent early to allow sufficient time to plan and hold study circles
in preparation for the Pre-World Conferences and the 11th World Conference. Let us study
these precious teachings of Bhagawan, practice them and be prepared to participate
enthusiastically in the upcoming conferences.
Jai Sai Ram.
Lovingly in service of Sai,
Dr. Narendranath Reddy,
Chairman, Prasanthi Council
