They came, They saw………..


What is health care? Health care is not just medical care. Medical care is one of the components of what you all are doing. Actually health care is medical care, education and nutrition. Health care happens only when all these three are combined. You are doing that in both Puttaparthi and here. You are treating the mind. You are providing good water. You are doing all the three.
An anti ballistic missile has been launched by Bhagavan against poverty: Through education, water and healthcare.

Shri A P J Abdul Kalam,
President of India
Speaking when he was Professor, Anna University, Chennai
on the 19th of January 2002, the first Anniversary of SSIHMS, B'lore



The Sri Satya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences is a wonderful contribution of Bhagawan Sri Satya Sai Baba. To have a free and modern hospital for the poor people of India was a dream and pledge of our leaders in the freedom struggle. This is a realization of the dream of Gandhiji and Jawaharlal Nehru. It represents our spiritual heritage. One feels proud after going round it. This can be a model for all the developing countries as well as the developed world. The developed world has these facilities but not for the poor. May this example be followed by others. It is not only a medical but a spiritual contribution of India. With respectful Pranams to revered Swami.

I just saw the hospital and asked the person who was taking me around, " Is it a hospital or a temple?" The impression I get is, yes, it is a hospital. There are patients though the structure is like a temple. Everywhere we see Baba's photographs. Can every hospital, every institution in this country be a cohesive model of both a hospital and a temple? That should be our goal.

The magnificent, world-class facility we see before us is an embodiment of Baba's great vision. The outpouring of the kindness and the healing energy so evident here today is a gift Bhagavan Baba in his boundless love shares with all of us.
