The two campuses of Sri Sathya Sai Loka Seva Trust (SSSLST) at Alike in Dakshina Kannada district and Muddenahalli in Chikkaballapur district of Karnataka state are abodes of bliss, glittering bright by the grace of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. The two campuses serve the society through Education and Selfless service, upholding Human Values, Moral Conduct and Spiritual Excellence.
SSSLST was earlier known as Loka Seva Vrinda, until Sri Sathya Sai Baba formally took over the two campuses, through a deed registered at Muddenahalli in August 1978. This act of compassion was in response to the sincere prayers of Late Madiyal Narayan Bhat, the founder of Loka Seva Vrinda. He was truly a sage rooted in the ancient culture of India, but alive to the needs of modern times. He established the institution at Muddenahalli in June 1973.
In His Divine Discourse to the students and teachers at Muddenahalli, Bhagawan said, “The seed sown by Narayan Bhat has grown into a big tree and you are all taking shelter under it”. Swami fulfilled the yearning and aspiration of Narayan Bhat to offer the institutions built by him at the altar of Swami’s Mission. From that day Bhagawan has been bestowing special care and attention on these institutions. Bhagawan is the Sole Trustee of SSSLST which runs institutions at Muddenahalli and Alike. Bhagawan once compared the two campuses to His eyes.
