Welcome to the 2017 Sathya Sai International Medical Conference
Sathya Sai Baba (lovingly referred to by many as “Swami”) has shown humanity how to realize their innate Divinity through His teachings and by His example. He has taught the world profound noble truths using simple language that all can understand. The summary of all spiritual teachings can be encapsulated by Swami’s universal message: “Love All, Serve All.”
Sathya Sai Baba has extolled the path of selfless service to help one progress toward the goal of spiritual enlightenment. He has repeatedly said that “Service to Man is Service to God.” To ease the suffering of man, He has established primary and tertiary care hospitals (including two super specialty hospitals) and mobile hospitals in which state-of-the-art healthcare is provided free of charge to one and all, with love and compassion. These medical institutions were created to be examples of how Sathya Sai Ideal Healthcare can be provided worldwide. The example He set has now spawned a broad network of healthcare delivery in over 30 countries, where excellent healthcare is provided free of charge with love, compassion, and equal emphasis on disease prevention.
Sathya Sai Baba’s Ideal Healthcare principles are as follows:
- Universal Healthcare: The best care should be available to all, especially the poor.
- Free Healthcare: No one should be denied healthcare because of poverty; ideal healthcare should be free of cost.
- Loving Healthcare: Healthcare should be delivered with love and compassion.
- Comprehensive Healthcare: Medical care should treat the whole patient, body, mind, and spirit.
- Preventive Healthcare: It is the duty of the physician to educate patients in healthy living to prevent disease.
In 2009, healthcare professionals from all over the world met in Anaheim, California, to discuss Sathya Sai Ideal Healthcare and share their ideal practices with others. This conference was filled with Divine energy and love. All who came were energized by the stories of love and compassion that not only benefited the patient, but also, and most significantly, spiritually transformed the healthcare provider.
The 2017 International Medical Conference on Sathya Sai Ideal Healthcare will continue to build on the previous conference. The goals of this conference will be to raise awareness of the Sathya Sai Global Health Mission and Sathya Sai Ideal Healthcare and to help mobilize volunteers and healthcare providers to become inspired and more involved in their own communities or wherever the need exists to serve others with love and compassion. The conference will also provide an avenue for the exchange of ideas emphasizing the core values of Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings on providing free medical service with love and compassion.
An emphasis of this conference will be to inspire, encourage, and motivate young medical professionals to be the exemplars of Sathya Sai Ideal Healthcare. This conference is open to all healthcare professionals who are interested in Ideal Healthcare and to the leaders of Sathya Sai Organizations.
