If the nation has to prosper, improvement must start with the parents. Without peace and harmony at home, there can be no peace in the nation. This message should be propagated throughout the country on every November 19th, by observing it as Ladies' Day.

Om Sri Sai Ram!

With Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s blessings, we are delighted to announce that, the Sathya Sai International Organization (SSIO) will host an Online Global Ladies’ Day Celebrations on November 18 and 19, 2020.

By His personal example and teachings, Bhagawan demonstrated respect for women, created opportunities for their social upliftment and encouraged them to discover the divinity within. And then on November 19, 1995, Swami declared,

From ancient times the feminine aspect of the Divine has been worshipped. Study the lives of great women who were models of patience, fortitude, compassion, and sacrifice. I desire that you should take up the reins of leadership and bring peace and prosperity to the world by leading ideal lives.

To celebrate the 25th year of Ladies’ day declaration, with Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba as our inspiration and guiding force, a very special and inspiring program will be presented. This will include opportunities for many devotees to contribute and participate.

Finally, to best accommodate participants from different time zones, we are pleased to offer two sessions with a different program on each day, with prelude starting 30 minutes prior. We extend a personal invitation to all to attend either or both sessions, as follows:
