Sai Sanjeevini Seva Mission in Flood-afflicted Uttarakhand
July 19 to August 5, 2013
This is a brief account of the Sai Sanjeevini Seva that a team of volunteers rendered in the Himalayan Tsunami affected regions of the Uttarakhand State in Northern India, from July 19 to August 5, 2013. It was heartening to see the Armed Forces, the Police Force, many NGOs, Corporates and individuals offering their dedicated self-less service in different fields to reassure the afflicted people of the State that the whole nation and many from across the world were with them in their time of distress.
For our team it was a humbling and fulfilling experience to be a witness to the spontaneous and loving acceptance of the gift of Sanjeevini healing prayers by people in Rishikesh, Dehradun, Uttarkashi and Rudraprayag regions of the State. We sincerely hope and pray that the Sanjeevinis will enrich the lives of all our brethren in Uttarakhand by helping open channels of self-healing, self-confidence, self-reliance and self-realisation within each one of them.

Opportunities for Selfless Seva in the Region
Our most loving and reverential pranaams at the lotus feet of our beloved Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and loving greetings to all. We are eternally grateful to our revered Swami for being our constant guiding light in this most humble seva mission to share the gift of Sanjeevini healing with our brethren in the State of Uttarakhand.
The Unprecedented Calamity in Uttarakhand
When the Himalayan Tsunami struck in the Uttarakhand mountains of Northern India on June 16, 2013, no one could have imagined the devastation it was about to unleash. Continuous heavy rains coupled with massive cloudbursts caused all the sacred rivers in the region to go into a gigantic spate, with water levels rising several metres above the danger levels.
Before the deluge During the deluge
As days went by, the enormity of the tragedy kept unfolding. Thousands of people were feared dead. Many villages in the wide path of the torrential floods got swept away. A network of many critical roads was obliterated, power and water distribution systems severely damaged; hundreds of children feared orphaned; many women widowed; thousands of cattle also feared perished. Those who witnessed the destruction from close and lived to share their experience said that it was like watching “Pralaya” - the end of the world, in which every thing — human beings, animals, roads and bridges, homes, hotels, cars and trucks — was sinking and dissolving in the great deluge.
The Indian Army and Air force launched one of the most heroic rescue operations ever, to save the lives of over 100,000 stranded people (from all over the country and overseas ) who were on a pilgrimage to the four holy shrines in the region for their spiritual redemption. The State Government, the Central Government, hundreds of NGO’s and many concerned individuals from all over India swung into immediate action to render help to hundreds of thousands of permanent residents of Uttarakhand who continue to bear the brunt of the calamity.
Sanjeevini healers worldwide responded immediately, as they always do for every disaster anywhere in the world, by broadcasting Sanjeevini healing prayers with intense faith for an urgent end to the suffering of all those affected.
This calamity occurred quite close to home - only 500 kilometers from Delhi where we are based.
As we watched the gravity of the tragedy unfold, Baba awakened a strong yearning within us to visit the affected areas and to directly share the Sanjeevini healing fragrances with the people of the region.
We prayed fervently and sought the Lord’s guidance on how best to share the Sanjeevini prayers to console and comfort our brethren in the region, uplift their feeble spirits and give them the strength to rebuild their lives, while also providing subtle healing protection from several diseases.
Our Humble Contribution:
Relief for the area being sent by organizations and individuals from around the country included truckloads of critical relief material like food grains, blankets, tents, solar lamps, mineral water and many other essentials.
Our contribution consisted of a consignment of the following gifts of holistic healing:
- Hundreds of copies of the booklet “Sai Sanjeevini Prayers for people affected in Calamities” with 14 relevant Sanjeevini Combination Sheets for different problems. Please click here to view a copy.
The booklet with 14 Sanjeevini Combinations Sai Sanjeevini Healing Kit Contents
Thousands of Sai Sanjeevini healing kits consisting of :
1. A laminated Multiplication and Broadcasting Card.
2. A sample of Vibhutiin a small plastic bottle charged with the healing vibrations of all the Sanjeevini Combinations included in the booklet mentioned in Item No 1 along with a few other important Combinations.
3. A laminated Neutralisation Card
4. A laminated Card (the size of an ATM card) that included the Shakthi Sanjeevini, Shanthi Sanjeevini and Forgiveness Sanjeevini Card patterns on it. This Card was referred to as the Divine ATM card.
All the above four items were secured in a 6” by 4”cellophane bag with a protective zip.
The Sanjeevini Healing Kit ready for distribution
An Auspicious Beginning:
The mission started with an auspicious beginning. We were guided by a Sai Sister to set up base in Rishikesh in Parmarth Niketan, a world renowned International spiritual retreat for Yoga students, by the banks of the sacred Mother Ganges, This retreat, under the inspiring leadership and guidance of Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswati, is one of the most prominent hubs in Rishikesh for relief work in Uttarakhand. We felt immensely blessed to start our humble mission in an environment that was fully charged with the divine vibrations of selfless service offered with unconditional love.
The Healing Seva:
In the 18 days that we spent on this mission, we reached out directly to over 1200 people in Rishikesh, Dehradun, Uttarkashi and the Rudraprayag regions. Many developed faith in the healing power of the system and arranged mini workshops for large groups of people. Over 30 people in the region showed intense keenness to spread awareness and usage of the system. We spent a lot more time with them answering their questions and clearing their doubts. They received multiple Sanjeevini healing kits and were assured of more. We told them we were only a phone call away from Uttarakhand and would send them additional kits whenever needed or bring them across personally.
People who had lost their loved ones and their property were naturally heartbroken and depleted in spirit. “Why did God spare us when He took away everything from us?” was their depressing refrain. In many cases, the affected would spend up to 15 to 20 minutes narrating to us their plight. When we began telling them that the very purpose of our mission was to help them overcome these feelings of helplessness and despondency, they were immediately comforted.
With the Lord’s grace, a brief introduction to the Sanjeevini healing system and the Sanjeevini healing kit, visibly brightened their spirits. Elders, youth and children alike felt spiritually empowered. Their faith in God was reawakened when they were reminded of the power of their own sincere heartfelt prayers.
During this visit, our main focus was to encourage people to start using the Sanjeevini healing kit for experiencing the holistic healing power of the system. In the months ahead we hope and pray that we can conduct comprehensive Sanjeevini healing workshops in the region to share the depth and scope of the healing system in its entirety.
Some Very Special Moments during Our Seva Mission were:
When a few Saints in the region gave their whole-hearted acceptance and endorsement to the healing system and encouraged us with their blessings to share the system with people in the region.
When the faces of people who had gone through immense suffering lit up with hope and strength on being reminded of the unlimited spiritual strength and peace within each one of them. They were comforted to know that the Sanjeevini healing system helps awaken this divine energy within the body to face all the challenges of life with courage, fortitude, equanimity and patience.
When we were given the precious opportunity to share the healing system with about 180 Sadhus (Ascetics) who had gathered for a Bhandara ( mass meal) in an Ashram (spiritual retreat) in Rishikesh. Each one of them lovingly accepted the Sanjeevini healing kit after having understood the basis of the healing system. Some even asked for an extra kit for other Ascetics who could not come that day. One young Ascetic in the gathering was leaving for a long and tough trek to Gangotri (300 kilometeres away and about 11000 ft above sea level) the following day. He could intuitively assess the healing power of the system and requested for 60 kits for Ascetics living in Gangotri, who had continued to stay there during and after the deluge.
When the Principals of two schools were wonderstruck at the simplicity of the healing system. They organized Sanjeevini sessions for their school children and teachers. In both these schools, children from Grade III onwards understood the usage of the system and promised to charge their drinking water everyday with their healing kit along with their own fervent prayer to God for becoming ideal students of whom their family, school and nation would be proud of.
When teachers in five schools were amazed at the versatility and simplicity of the healing system and were anxious to start using it regularly.
When officers of the Ministry of Civil Aviation spontaneously offered to airlift us (by helicopter) to Uttarkashi and Guptakashi on understanding the healing system and the pure and selfless service intentions of our seva mission. We will always be grateful for the trust they placed in us.
When we were blessed with the most valuable opportunity to share the healing system with a few officers and soldiers of the Army, Police Force and the Border Roads Organisation. These men in uniform are truly God’s angels in the region. The whole nation is immensely proud of them and grateful to them for their selfless, heroic service during the calamity and in its aftermath.
When we were blessed with the precious opportunity of serving with a team of dedicated Sai brothers for two days in the region towards the end of our trip.
Sharing the Healing System:
The booklet was usually the starting point of our explanation of the healing system to individuals or groups of people. It contained the healing Cards and several relevant Sanjeevini healing combinations. The following Sanjeevini prayers (included in the very first Combination in the booklet) for critical problems faced by many in the region were highlighted:
DS 209 Drinking Water (for all) Sanjeevini,
DS 226 Nourishing Food (for all) Sanjeevini
DS 250 Dignified Housing (for all) Sanjeevini
DS 216 Faith Sanjeevini.
The booklet was given only to people who showed a serious interest in understanding the system. Over 420 booklets were shared with immense love.
The Sai Sanjeevini healing kit was given to each person who promised to use the kit daily for at least three weeks in the right spirit to experience the subtle healing power of the system. Over 4000 Sanjeevini healing kits were shared in the region with immense faith and unconditional love.
Practical Usage of the Sanjeevini Healing Kit:
Next, we demonstrated the practical usage of the Sanjeevini healing kit.
We explained how the sample in the healing kit was already charged with the healing vibrations of all the 14 combinations in the booklet by placing the sample bottle in the central circle of each Combination sheet and praying or chanting for a minute or more. We also told them that the Sanjeevini Sample in the kit also had the healing energy of a few more important and useful combinations - like the Brain Power Combination for sharpening one’s concentration, memory, intelligence and overall awareness.
All they had to do on a daily basis was to charge their daily drinking water with the Sanjeevini sample enclosed in the kit by using the Multiplication & Broadcasting Card.
Usage of the Multiplication & Broadcasting (M&B) Card for Charging Water:
It was explained to them that the small bottle with the charged Vibhuti was to be placed on the left of the M & B card. The daily drinking water to be charged with the healing vibrations in the Sanjeevini sample was to be placed on the output circle on the right of the M & B card for at least one minute. It could be in a glass, bottle or jug (made of any material).
Charging water in a glass Charging water in a bottle Charging water in a Jug
During this minute or more, it was extremely important for people to pray with intense faith from the depths of their heart to God, to remove whatever problem or problems they were facing at the physical, mental, emotional, social, financial or spiritual levels. There was a lot of emphasis on deepening their connection with the Divine as they prayed. They could take as long as they wished to for doing so – one to five minutes or even more.
The water in the container on the right of the M & B Card was now charged with the healing vibrations of Sanjeevini prayers in the sample, and also with the healing vibrations of their own fervent prayers.
This was their healing remedy to be consumed during the day.
The charging of their drinking water with the Sanjeevini prayers and their own prayers could be done at any time of the day. However, it was recommended that ideally they should do this early in the morning when the mind is calm and can be easily tuned in to the divine. The charging process could, of course, be repeated any time during the day for replenishing their remedy with more water.
· At least 2 to 3 times a day for general well-being
· 6 times a day or more if there was an acute disease or problem
Taking one sip of water, or drinking a whole glass of water is considered to be one dose. What this means is that the dosage is determined by the frequency of consuming the water, and not the quantity of water consumed at a time.
There is no such thing as an overdose in Sanjeevini healing. So, drinking the charged water several times a day would only help. Sanjeevinis are balancing healing vibrations and can never have any adverse effect.
The Neutralisation Card
The usage of the Neutralisation card was briefly explained, with the following key recommendations:
· It can be carried in the pocket or wallet during the day to ward off negativity from within and from without.
· It can be kept under the pillow at night as a protection from disturbing dreams and for a peaceful sleep.
· This card has shown very positive results for bringing normalcy in the lives of people possessed by entities, and can be used for this purpose whenever required.
The Divine ATM Card with Shakthi Sanjeevini, Shanthi Sanjeevini and Forgivness Sanjeevinis:
To be carried in the wallet or the pocket.
Whenever you are feeling low or restless, take out the card, place your hand on the Shakthi and Shanthi Sanjeevini patterns on this card, connect your mind to the Divine and sincerely pray for the awakening of Divine Strength (Shakthi) and Divine Peace (Shanthi) within.
The Divine ATM card Awakening Shakthi and Shanthi Awakening Forgiveness
The other most important usage of this card :
Each person was requested to spend at least one minute everyday, placing his/her hand on the Forgiveness Sanjeevini Card and prayerfully seeking forgiveness from God on behalf of one’s self, one’s family, one’s village, the whole country, the whole of humanity - for the wrongs any one may have committed knowingly or unknowingly, individually or collectively, because of which this brutal calamity had struck the region. Also, during this prayerful connection, sincerely seeking divine wisdom for every being to walk on the path of truth and righteousness in future to ensure peace, harmony, happiness and prosperity for all in Uttarakhand.
The response to the daily usage of the Forgiveness Sanjeevini card was extremely positive. They felt an enormous sense of reassurance because the usage of this card provided them with a simple but highly focused technique to clear their individual and collective Karmic debts – through the daily practice of seeking forgiveness.
Other Important Guidelines/Information Shared:
1. People must always consult their doctors for their physical ailments and take the prescribed medicines regularly. The Sanjeevinis for various ailments should be taken along with any other medication prescribed by their doctor. Sanjeevinis always help in the healing process by awakening one’s own inherent healing power.
2. The healing vibrations of Sanjeevini prayers act as preventives and curatives. The Sanjeevini healing remedy being taken daily will provide subtle protection against diseases like Diarrhea and Dysentery, Typhoid, Jaundice etc.
3. The Sanjeevini healing kit will be their permanent healing friend as the Sanjeevini Sample prepared in Vibhuti would last till eternity.
4. The Sanjeevini healing system was being used by people in more than 45 countries across the world. Its usage was slowly gaining momentum worldwide as more and more people were experiencing its simplicity and effectiveness though their personal usage.
5. There is only one God who is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent. During the process of charging, people can pray to any Name or Form of Divinity/God/Goddess they worship and adore and have complete faith in.
6. The entire prayer-based Sanjeevini healing system is always shared in a spirit of selfless love for the physical, mental, social, moral and spiritual upliftment of every being in the universe, irrespective of caste, creed, nationality, religion or spiritual tradition.
7. The entire system is available for free downloading on the website www.saisanjeevini.org
8. To gain a deeper understanding and experience of Sanjeevini healing, people should use the system daily for general well-being and for all kinds of problems — simple, acute and chronic.
9. Ideally, every member of the family should charge his/her own daily drinking water with the Sanjeevinis by saying his/her own fervent focused prayer
If this was not possible for whatever reason, at least one member of the family could daily charge the water, praying for the well-being of the entire family during the charging process. A small quantity of this water could then be added to the large container from which the whole household gets its drinking water so that the whole family is receiving the healing vibrations of focused prayers for their holistic well-being during the day.
Commonly Asked Questions:
Q: Do I need to consume the Vibhuti in the sample bottle in the kit either directly or by adding it to the water being charged?
Ans.: No, the Vibhuti in the sample bottle need not be touched at all. The healing vibrations of Sanjeevinis in the Vibhuti are transferred into water using the Multiplication and Broadcasting Card.
Q: Does the potency of the charged Vibhuti diminish with extensive usage or with time?
Ans.: No, the potency of the charged Vibhuti remains constant eternally. The healing kit that is being shared will be there for ever and can be used for decades to come.
Opportunities for Selfless Seva in the Region:
For Professional Doctors
There is a great need for professional Doctors who wish to offer their selfless service in the region. This can be for short periods of time for 3 to 7 days, or even longer for 15 days or more.
There are quite a few NGO’s in the region who are coordinating the services of doctors (from all over the country) in a planned and systematic way so that their boarding and lodging is looked after in the villages. Pharmacists and Volunteers along with medical supplies are also being arranged by some NGO’s to ensure the smooth and efficient functioning of the clinics in remote villages.
We are happy to share the contact details of two NGOs who are coordinating this medical seva work in the region. Medical Doctors interested in serving in the region may contact them for more details:

In loving service to the divine in all,
Sai Sanjeevini Seva team
“Life is a pilgrimage to God and the path lies before you. But, unless you take the first step forward and follow it with succeeding steps, how can you reach it? Start with courage, faith, joy and steadiness, you will certainly succeed. The mind and the intellect are like two bullocks tied to a cart. The bullocks are not used to the road of Truth, Righteousness, Peace and Love, and so they drag the cart along the road familiar to them, namely, falsehood, injustice, worry and hatred. You have to train the bullocks to tread the right path, so that they may not bring disaster to themselves and to others.”
Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
“The Lord is the Indweller in all beings and is All Pervading. He is the soul in every being. He is in you as much as He in everyone else. He is not present more in a rich person or bigger in a fat person. His spark illumines the cave of the heart, of every one. The Sun shines equally on all; His Grace is falling equally on all. You construct obstacles that prevent the rays of His Grace from touching and warming your heart. Do not blame the Lord for your ignorance or foolishness or perversity.”

Thought for the Week
God is no stony-hearted despot…
“Repentance purifies, contrition cleanses. God is no stony-hearted despot. He is Compassion, He is Grace personified. Once you have cleansed yourself by tears, He draws you near and grants you consolation and courage. Without a cleansed heart, Self-realization is impossible. Wisdom can enter only a purified mind.”
Sri Sathya Sai Baba
"I am a sceptic, so I decided to try this simple healing system for myself. I was very surprised that the method worked so well, also with animals, who can not “fake” the outcome. So I was “hooked”. To me it was a miracle system and I took it upon me to translate the complete healing system for those who did not master the English language." Read more

The Sai Sanjeevini Healing System is also available in the book “A Healer’s Guide”.
There is much suffering in the world today. The "standard of living" is rising everywhere but the "standard of health" is perhaps at its lowest.... The poor suffer from diseases of "deprivation". The rich on the other hand suffer from diseases of "plenty" or "excess". These include diabetes, rheumatism and arthritis, high blood pressure, heart trouble,(cholestrol), kidney failure, asthma - the list is endless.
