Prof. Anil Kumar Kamaraju is well known in the Sai world! He has worked in various capacities in the organization, then moved on to be the Principal of the Bangalore campus of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning. He has been a Professor at the Sri Sathya Sai University in Prashanti Nilayam and has been translating Swami’s speeches for long time now. Prof. Anil Kumar is a very dynamic speaker who vitalizes audiences of all ages with Swami’s message.
Mrs. Vijayalakshmi Kamaraju is a very ardent devotee of Sathya Sai Baba. She has had countless experiences with Swami, including the unique opportunity to prepare His daily meals. Her experience of raising three daughters, each of whom practice Swami’s teachings in their own way in their daily adult lives, provides her with a wealth of experience and insight. She is a very humble individual, who inspires with her simple, yet energizing, message of devotion in action.
[B] New Service Opportunity :
We are very happy to let you know that we started the new Service Opportunity last saturday February 16th, with the help and support from all of you. Mobile Loaves & Fishes (MLF) is a food truck service, where volunteers hit the street seven nights a week, 365 days a year to serve the homeless, delivering food, clothing, hygiene products and other items.
Sathya Sai Center of Austin will join Riverbend Church in Austin, and use their MLF Kitchen, to support/continue the feeding program to the homeless.
We have started this service on February 16th, and for now will continue on every 3rd Saturday. Going forward we intend to intensify this service based on availability and interest of volunteers.

[C] Adopt-A-Creek :
Adopt-A-Creek is a service project where we conduct creek and trail cleanups once in every 2 months. The 1/4 mile creek segment assigned for our center is Walnut Creek from Shropshire, west to Byer’s Cove. This creek segment will be under our adoption until January, 2021. All the guideline and supplies for the cleanup will be provided by ‘Keep Austin Beautiful’ a 501(c)(3) nonprofit service organization.
We are very happy to let you all know that about 10 YA’s have participated in their first cleanup at the Walnut creek on Saturday 2/2/2019 from 9 AM till 12 Noon and on 5/4/2019. The whole portion of the 0.6 mile assigned to Sathya Sai Center of Austin has been cleaned up and YA’s were very happy they were part of this community cleanup activity.
Please contact Kiranmayi/Rushil/Sriram if you would like to be part of this service project.
