Nine-point Code of Conduct

Sri Sathya Sai Baba has proclaimed the Nine Point Code of Conduct as guidance for spiritual and personal development.

"It is the Code of Conduct which is responsible for the Organisation moving forward, growing from strength to strength. The office bearers should exercise maximum care to see that the Code of Conduct is adhered to and guide others also in the right path... There should be no scramble for power or position. What matters is the purity, intensity of devotion and the spirit of self sacrifice."
- Baba

Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba while placing the Sai movement throughout the world on a firm footing with established Universal principles such as those shown below has also proclaimed as a guiding light for a devotee's spiritual and personal development-the Nine Point Code of Conduct.

At the First Overseas Convention of Chairpersons of Sai Centers, held in Prashanthi Nilayam in November 1998, delegates were asked to have their Centers conduct a study circle on the Nine-Point Code of Conduct.

Center members are expected to do their best to practice the Nine-Point Code of Conduct in order to be examples of Sathya Sai Baba's teachings.

  1. Daily meditation and prayer (Jap).

  2. Group devotional singing (bhajan) or prayer with family members once a week.

  3. Participation in Sai Spiritual Education (Bal Vikas Programme) by children of the family.

  4. Participation in community service work and other programs of the organization.

  5. Regular attendance at the Center's devotional meetings (Bhajan or Nagar Sankirtan).

  6. Regular study of Sathya Sai  literature.

  7. The use of soft, loving speech with everyone.

  8. Not speaking ill of others, especially in their absence.

  9. Narayana Seva
