Love and Serve Your Motherland
In hosting community celebrations for Canada’s 150th birthday, the Sathya Sai Centre of Toronto-York takes pride in the opportunity to partner with Canadian Heritage. Canada 150 festivities allowed one and all to connect, be grateful to our motherland Canada, and celebrate our accomplishments as a country. This is wholly in line with Sathya Sai Baba’s Guiding Principles, which includes: Love and Serve your Motherland.
As part of the activities, a permanent flagpole was installed on the Centre premises. After the hosting of the Canadian flag by the Centre elders, the national anthem “O Canada” was sung by over 450 members of the congregation, creating an impressive atmosphere with a sacred feeling. Adding to the atmosphere and feelings was the Red and White attire donned by the attendees that created the projection of a ‘living Canadian flag’. The memories and emotions of the event will not be forgotten.
Thank you Canada! As we continue to sing, “God keep our land, glorious and free.”
