The teachings of the Baba are based on the famous 'five props' of Sathya (truth), Dharma (righteousness) Santhi (peace), Prema (universal love) and Ahimsa (non violence). Prasanthi Nilayam, over the years, has attracted people from all over then world.

The Ashram also has museums, stadiums, educational institutions, the Sai Space Theatre etc. The 23rd of November is celebrated with great joy and enthusiasm by the devotees of Baba at the Prasanthi Nilayam as Sai Baba was born on this day in Puttaparthi. Over a million people gather here on the occasion of the Baba's birthday. The atmosphere around the Ashram is undeniably peaceful, and the growth of such a vibrant community in this once forgotten backward area is not a small miracle.

The most often-visited place in the ashram is the museum, which is located on the nearby hillock. The museum contains models of various temple structures including the Golden Temple of Amritsar, the Mecca mosque, etc. The museum also depicts the story of Satya Sai Baba, right from his birth to the time he attained 'Nirvana'.

Vaikunth Ekadashi
This festival marks the famous event narrated in the Bhagavatham when Lord Vishnu incarnated as the Tortoise. On this day, the gates of Vaikuntha (Heaven) are said to be open for the souls of spiritual aspirants to enter.

Maha Sivarathri

In Puttaparthi bhajans will be conducted all night and it is expected that one observe full fast and dedicate the day to prayer and spiritual practice to not waste the opportunity. Sivarathri night is the most sacred night in India of all festivals.
