Saibaba gospel goes on air

By Our Staff Reporter

PUTTAPARTHI, NOV. 23. To spread the message of peace from Sri Satya Saibaba, the World Space Organisation, USA, has launched a digital audio satellite communication system - "Radio Sai Global Harmony" here on Friday. The digital radio network will broadcast the gospel of Sri Saibaba in all the main languages of the world round the clock.

The radio network was launched by Sri Saibaba by pressing a switch. The broadcast of the new radio station began with the playing back of signature music. Later, a song in Telugu sung by the students of Sri Satya Sai Institute of Higher Learning greeting Saibaba on his birthday was played back.

Dr. Michael Nobel, son of the legendary Alfred Nobel and the Chairman of the governing body of the Board of Nobel Societies, one of the patrons of the radio network, said the World Space Organisation already had two satellites - Asiasat and Africastar covering about 4 billion population. A launch of another satellite soon would cover the population in America.

He said the radio network would spread the message of Saibaba all over the world and propagate global harmony and peace. Mr. V. Srinivasan, the former president of Confederation of Indian Industry and another patron of the radio network, also spoke.
