Where heart surgery are done for free-Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences

Hats off to Rediff team for carrying this story.

I have seen the facility. It is truly world class in terms of facilities, but more than that truly divine( I can't think of a better term) in terms quality of Service. The service is extended without any expectation in return. The Service/Seva itself is the source of Joy !( as taught in Bhagwad Gita). A project of this magnitude, in a village, in interior AP, offering best in class treatment, is to be seen to be believed.
My mom has been part of the support-group (seva dal) who goes there on seva-to clean, help patients, pray, etc... etc.
Of course the service is never advertised, as it is seva! Is not word-of-mouth from satisfied 'customers' the best form of advertising ?
But, I was overwhelmed by the comments on rediff. Majority appreciate this selfless seva. Some have asked about the location/how to donate/demand same from our governments & business houses/etc. We all have a role to play to improve the lives of the needy around us, in our own small ways.

Let me conclude with the prayer, which is chanted at Puttaparthy at the end of all prayer-sessions, Samastha Loka Sukhino Bhavanthu
