Swami seeing the report of the Hospital in February 2007

and blessing Sri Manoj Bhimani, one of the trustees

Where selfless love is, there God is. The hospital today stands as a testimony to the whole world what pure love, when expressed in service, can do. Over the years, many distinguished personalities, national and international, have stepped into the portals of this ‘mansion of love’; some came as curious visitors, some as willing-to-learn social workers and some as inquisitive investigators. All of them witnessed the unbelievable and left humbled paying homage to this ‘savior of the poor’. When the former Chief Minister of Gujarat visited the place a couple of years ago, he left with the hospital a cheque with a generous amount from his relief fund. Very recently, the Rajkot Municipal corporation, as a mark of gratitude, contributed a large sum to the hospital’s coffers.
        Till 2006, more than six hundred and forty such Rabiyas and Rashids have found hope, health and happiness, and by 2008, the hospital targets it will rise to surely one thousand. And these are patients not only from in and around Rajkot or from the city of Ahmedabad, they come from all over the state of Gujarat. At times, you will even find patients from the far-north of India. Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, the world renowned Santoor maestro, on his visit to the hospital, was surprised to find a patient from his home-state of Jammu and Kashmir. Selfless love has become so scarce in the present times, any amount of distance or ordeal is welcome once you are convinced it is assured.

Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital, Rajkot


A Hospital with a Noble Mission
Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital, Rajkot

In the year 2000, the foundation of the temple of service i.e. the Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital was laid at Rajkot. Established with an expenditure (cost) of Rs 15 crore, this hospital with all facilities and of international standard did not incur only one expenditure and that is of Bill Book! Till date 3000 operations have been performed totally free of cost bringing smile on many faces and in return has got the satisfaction of “manav seva”.

Baba says, 'Whatever good you are giving to the society… that comes to me. If society is satisfied the I am satisfied… After that you need not call me… I will quietly come there… You take one step… I will take 100 steps.' Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital, Rajkot established in 2003 with an expenditure of 15 crores does not have entry only for one expenditure i.e. the Bill Book. It is surprising but a truth and behind this is a very strong and valid reason. When the proposal for this hospital was kept in front of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, he put forward 3 conditions… 1. Treatment should be free for patients. 2. Wealthy and affording people should come forward to help and put their wealth to proper use. 3. Patients should be considered as God and one should feel fortunate to serve them. They should serve with this feeling and not with the feeling of sympathy or charity. Following the instructions of Baba this hospital has become an example in the last 5 years. Trying to help each and every one in society, this hospital is well known as 'Dil without Bill' among the less fortunate. Sri Sathya Sai Heart Hospital is not only an example of selfless service but also an example of secular unity. According to Baba's instruction there should be no differentiation based on religion, caste or creed. Every patient is revered as God and given totally free treatment. Running on the guideline of Sri Sathya Sai Baba, this hospital has become a ray of hope for thousands of patients. Believing in the philosophy of Manavseva, the hospital has moved quite ahead in 5th years. In 2003, 166 people benefited and had their hearts beating properly and now the numbers are increasing daily. In 2005 the hospital had 504 operations. In 2007 518 heart operations had been done by the hospital. And now the hospital has decided to do 1008 operations and give rebirth to the needy people.
