Mr Milutin Pankrac lives in Croatia and is currently responsible for SSRF activities worldwide. Born into a family with a multi-cultural European background (Croatian, Serbian, Austrian, Czech), from a young age itself, he embraced the beauty of cultural diversity in people. This helped him to be broad-minded and engendered love for others regardless of where they came from. Though his educational background was in civil engineering, after graduation he began his own business of interior decoration that specialized in custom made furniture. Within 15 years his company grew from 1 person to 80 people, along with regional branches. After starting spiritual practice in 2009 under the guidance of SSRF, he has had many life changing spiritual experiences, including some in which his very life was saved. This increased his faith in spiritual practice. From 2011, he became less involved in his business and began to devote an increasing amount of his time to practicing Spirituality and helping others realise the importance of spiritual practice in daily life. His wife and daughter are also practicing Spirituality under the guidance of SSRF. As a family they make every effort to live Spirituality at home and in all their interactions. It is because of such dedicated efforts in practicing Spirituality in the past few years that Mr Milutin has made rapid spiritual growth.
From her early childhood Shweta had an innate love for God and wished to serve Him. She always imagined herself devoting her life completely for spiritual practice but wondered how she would go about it. When she met His Holiness Dr Athavale for the first time in 1997, Shweta knew her search was over. Under His guidance Shweta started spiritual practice in earnest. In 2008 she put aside her career in human resource management for full-time satseva (service to God) in the Spiritual Research Centre in Goa, India. Since then she has been exposed to a wide array of satsevas at the Spiritual Research Centre and Ashram and has shown a lot of enthusiasm and dedication for them. Her love for her co-seekers is very natural. Whenever somebody asks for help, without a moment’s hesitation Shweta is always prompt to help. Today she is responsible for nurturing new seekers for SSRF in the India region, co-ordination of all articles for the SSRF website, answering of questions on the SSRF website and organising and conducting spiritual workshops in Goa. She has a lot of desire to help others in their spiritual journey. Her qualities of leadership, promptness, love for others and spiritual emotion towards God are expressed in the satsevas she does.
Mr Vladimir Ćirković is from Serbia and he is a disciple of His Holiness Dr. Athavale. Vladimir graduated from the University of Art in Serbia and had a successful career as a professional actor. He was exposed to all the success the profession can bring but he always felt that something was missing. No matter how successful he was, he did not experience inner fulfillment. Initially, Vladimir did not even believe in God, but after starting spiritual practice, Vladimir began to understand that God was the missing element in his life. He had more spiritual experiences within one year than career actors he spoke to had in their whole career and so Vladimir began to understand the importance of spiritual practice. Within a short period of time, he understood that spiritual growth is the true purpose of life and the time he devoted to Spirituality steadily increased. As a result, Vladimir has made significant spiritual progress, is currently fully dedicated to spreading of Spirituality and is looking after the spread of Spirituality and the spiritual practice of seekers in Europe. His aim is to serve humanity in the Divine mission of spreading Spirituality for the betterment of every individual and society as a whole.

He is presently doing the service to God of conducting spiritual meets and lectures in Europe and has dedicated his entire life to serve others in this way.
