24 April, Chandigarh : “I express my profound grief and condolence over the passing away of Shri Satya Sai Baba, one of the greatest spiritual gurus of our times. Today, the entire world has plunged into a deep sense of sorrow by this sad news.
His Holiness has always been respected and worshiped like God by his followers. His message changed the way of life of millions of people all over the world. His following is immense, phenomenal and very rare in the modern world. He devoted his entire life in the service of humanity and established about 1200 centres in about 115 countries worldwide for this purpose.I pay my most respectfully tribute and homage to one of the greatest souls to have set foot in this world – a noble soul who always spread the message of love, peace and co-existence. I pray to the Almighty God that His Ashirwad continues to be bestowed on all of us for all times to come, even though the void left by His ‘departure’ will remain unfulfilled forever.”
