The US Sai Organization in conjunction with the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust is investigating US devotees' desires to see live or delay broadcasting over the internet of Swami's discourses, darshan, cultural events in Prasanthi Nilayam, and the like. They are requesting devotees residing in the US to complete and submit a US Questionnaire on the US Sathya Sai web site. It is extremely important to gather user data so that they can make suitable computer arrangements. Currently the survey is for US devotees only. Thank you.
