Sri Kaleshwar - Shirdi Sai Global Trust

"While we are here on this planet we have to do something noble with our lives," Sri Kaleshwar says. He teaches that all of us must help wherever we can. Our actions must leave a sweet fragrance and be a great message that lives long after we are gone. This is the dharma of each person. Real moksha (enlightenment) is when someone looks in your eyes with gratitude because you have done something to remove their suffering. Swami's life is a living example of this. He tirelessly serves everyone who comes before him. It is an expression of his pure devotion and dedication to his master, Shirdi Baba.
The Shirdi Sai Global Trust was created as a service to humanity. The Trust provides food and water to the starving and homeless. Since 2001, an annual eye clinic has provided free operations to restore sight to thousands of people left blinded by cataracts. Hand-driven bicycles are given to the handicapped. Sewing machines are donated to the poor so that they can be more self-sufficient. Swami and the Trust are always looking to take care of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs of people.
