Sathya Sai Baba (1926 – 2011)
Sathya Sai Baba was born on November 23, 1926, in Puttaparthi, a remote village in the state of Andhra Pradesh in Southern India. From an early age, Sathya Sai Baba began demonstrating extraordinary powers. He quickly became known for the miracles that He performed such as materializing objects, especially a holy ash called vibhuthi, assisting people in distress, and letting those who came to Him for advice know that He was aware of even the most intimate details of their lives. Yet, He always maintained that His miracles were to be treated only as His calling cards. They were for the purpose of inspiring and encouraging people from all over the globe to begin their own spiritual journey of personal transformation- which He referred to as His greatest miracle.

The Sathya Sai Organisation of NZ (in conjunction with Values Education and Service Trust [NZ]) is a voluntary, incorporated, non-profit association founded under the inspiration and guidance of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, for the benefit of mankind. It makes no distinction on the basis of religion, race, nationality, caste, or creed. Around the world, the Sathya Sai Centres consist of members of different ethnic groups and different religions all pursuing their respective religions and following the teachings of their religions, but joining together for the service of mankind with the firm faith that Service to Man is Service to God.
The primary objective of the Sai Organisation is to aid seekers in their quest for God by helping them to recognise the divinity in all. The main unit of the Organisation is the Centre, the members of which are assisted, by a process of spiritual discipline, in their quest for God.
