In July 2021, the World Young Adults Festival (WYAF21) will be held in Prasanthi Nilayam. The theme chosen for the WYAF21 is Spiritually Awakening The Hearts of Young Adults (S.A.T.H.Y.A.). It is also the name of our beloved Lord, the ultimate goal and the foremost of the five Human Values. Young Adults from around the world will unite in joyful celebrations of this event and strengthen their spiritual pursuits.


The purpose of the Sathya Sai International Organisation (SSIO) is to help us realise our innate divinity. This event facilitates the journey of transformation for each individual by practicing the divine teachings of Sathya Sai Baba. The theme of transformation is reflected in all the initiatives of the International Young Adults programme, be it self-transformation through practice of the four steps in Sadhana of Love or through ‘Be-Do-See-Tell’ framework in the Sathya Sai International Leadership Programme for Young Adults. The idea is to transform oneself by making our lives the message of Sathya Sai Baba.

The WYAF21 will feature inspiring addresses by Young Adults and eminent guest speakers, panel discussions and interactive workshops/seminars, multi-media presentations, sharing of personal transformations, musical, dance and cultural performances, a global Sai Olympics and many other inspiring items.

This festival is for the Young Adults and by the Young Adults, and we urge all Young Adults to get involved. Full details will be available on this page and also on our social media pages on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter: @saiyoungadults.

Starting in March 2020, Pre-World Conferences/Young Adult Festivals will be held in at least 15 countries in all Zones. Further information about the World Young Adults Festival and the Pre-World Conferences/Young Adult Festivals is periodically posted on sathyasai.org. A schedule of the Pre-World Conferences may be found here.

If you would like to get involved and require further information, please contact your Young Adults Coordinator or email us at WYAF21@sathyasai.org. Further details of the International Young Adults programme can be found on: www.sathyasai.org/ya.

Many are called but few are chosen. We are blessed and fortunate to be chosen by Sathya Sai Baba to lead the Young Adults who are near and dear to Him, as we move forward with the divine mission. Let us pray for Sathya Sai Baba’s grace and guidance to serve Him with love, devotion and unity.

“You are the ones who will assume the leadership of the country in future. The future of the nation depends upon you. Your nature and character will decide the character of the nation. You should work for the prosperity of the nation, welfare of the world, and universal happiness. First of all, you must follow the command of the Lord. Therein lies your welfare, as well as the security of the nation and society.”
