ON behalf of the Hindu American community of USA, Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America (VHPA) extended its deepest condolence to the millions of devotees worldwide on the passing away of His Holiness Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba was an embodiment of spiritual wisdom, discipline and compassion—a shining star for entire humanity. He will be remembered as one of the greatest spiritual masters from the land of Bharat in the modern times who rekindled the highest ideals of Hindu way of life and Vedic culture. His message of Sanatan dharma shall continue to reverberate through millions of his devotees in more than 139 countries around the world.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba had a special affection for the cause of Hindu unity and cherished a dream for a grand temple of Sri Ram at His birthplace in Ayodhya. He stood with the Vishwa Hindu Parishad in its movement against the destruction of Ram Sethu which is seen as one of Hinduism’s holiest sites. He was very keen that temples, ashrams and other Hindu religious institutions must not be acquired by the governments as they belong to the deities and devotees.
