The first ever International Go Green Conference addressing global environmental issues to protect Planet Earth came to a resounding conclusion this evening in the immediate Divine OmniPresence of Beloved Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai.
Commencing the proceedings this evening, Mr. Dhipesh Pai enumerated the global Go Green initiatives ranging from personal level to societal, citing instances from Indonesia to Australia, Surinam to Germany, listing out some of the outstanding projects in action.
Ms. Selena Ricart from Argentina then presented the Summary and Resolutions emerged out of the conference. Life of Bhagawan is a perfect model of living in harmony with nature said Selena, reminding that as a organisation, our environmental mission is to raise our awareness to the oneness of God, Nature and Man. The resolutions emerged from the conference are: (a) share all materials with all Sathya Sai Centres... (b) launch a Go Green Programme to maintain and expand awareness of Bhagawan's teachings enabling individual transformation and practice (c) establish Go Green champions at Sathya Sai Centres at national levels to lead integration of environmental principles in all centre-activities... (d) create a global network of Go Green champions to share environmental ideas, resources and best practices (e) integrate Go Green into Sai Spiritual Education and EHV curriculum (f) encourage Go Green conference and gathering at zonal, regional, national levels (g) promote public outreach to share the spiritual essence of Go Green with communities (h) regularly review and monitor progress on the listed environmental initiatives to ensure that the progress is sustained and intensified.
International YA Coordinator Mr. Deviesh Tankaria from the UK then addressed the assembly speaking on the global Sai initiatives under the auspices of SSIO. Detailing many an initiative around the globe, Deviesh had one answer for all problems, that was given out by Bhagawan 'HimSelf'. He said, the answer for all problems lies in human mind, as answer for everything is within and not without.
LASA, the musical wing of International YA to disseminate Bhagawan's human values then presented a musical drama on the Go Green theme, bringing in greater environmental awareness. The presentation beautifully depicted how Bhagawan separated HimSelf from HimSelf resulting in the vast infinite creation and how one should always be aware of the oneness of God-Nature-Man following the Go Green path.
Bhajans next ended with Mangala Arathi to Bhagawan.
