Service is the first step along the spiritual path – Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. 

Inspired by the above noble ideology of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Youth from various Samithi’s of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation, Visakhapatnam District have been drenching since 1995 in the showers of Divine Bliss by conducting “Arthijanodharana Seva (service to the destitute)” under the aegis of Sri Satya Sai Seva Organisation, Visakhapatnam District. The service was rendered near Gnanapuram Railway Station, Visakhapatnam on 16th April, 2017.

The youth as a group conducted a survey in that area to identify such destitute. They also request the auto drivers of that area to inform them about such needy persons who need a fresh bath, new/decent clothing. One such service activity was conducted today amidst chanting of prayers at Gnanapuram Railway station. More than 50 youth from various Sri Sathya Sai Samithis of Visakhapatnam district picked up over 75 persons/destitute who are in a state of mentally disturbed condition with long hair and without even a bath for several months from in and around Gnanapuram Railway Station, Railway quarters Area, RTC Bus stand and brought them in autos with Love and soothing words to the place where Arthijanodharana Seva was being conducted. 

The destitute were personally shaven (tonsured) by the youth themselves (no professional barbers were hired) who learnt the art of shaving and haircut with the sole objective of rendering such service. After tonsuring, the needy persons were given a fresh bath with warm water, shampoo and provided with fresh, clean healthy clothing. The destitute were also applied with ointment to their wounds/skin diseases. Later, the destitute were given sumptuous prasadam (Lunch). It was heart touching to see “the rays of happiness in their eyes” after the service.
