Dr. Chandra Bhanu Satpathy is a noted scholar, spiritual thinker, author and a humanitarian. He is a personification of the noble principles of life such as love, empathy, compassion, simplicity, humility, devotion to God and sacrifice. As a heir to a family of great academicians and administrators, versatile young writer of his time, perfect family man, an accomplished and decorated professional, compassionate and humanitarian, an ardent devotee of his Master and a friend, philosopher and guide to millions of people across the globe, Dr. Satpathy has experienced it all with humility and equanimity.
As he holds, the year 1989 marked a turning point in his life when he visited the Holy Shrine of Shri Sai Baba located in Shirdi (Maharashtra). Ever since, Dr. Satpathy has been spreading the teachings of Shri Shirdi Sai and Indian philosophy assiduously over a span of 25 years, not only in India but also in many other countries as well. Under his inspiration and guidance, more than two hundred centers and forums devoted to philanthropy, community development, spiritualism and promotion of Indian culture, are active in countries like India, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, UK and some other countries in Europe.
As many people who have had a long-standing relationship with him say – even a short meeting with Dr. Satpathy may change one’s life forever. This unique process may not necessarily involve miracles or receive mantra to chant or receiving some preachings, but it is The Connection that he establishes with your inner being irrespective of who you are or where you come from. Such short meetings have influence and inspire people in many ways over the years – be it the creation of spiritual institutions, or inspiration to write or to realize the divine path prescribed by Shri Shirdi Sai and other saints. Some have even been inspired to establish educational institutions or to undertake various types of philanthropic activities. Many come to him to receive inspiration to tread along the mundane path of life in a righteous way. Walking hand in hand with people of all strata of the society, Dr. Satpathy has touched everyone to the core with his unique way of belongingness and benevolence.
