C. B. Satpathy is an ardent devotee of Sri Sai Baba, who calls himself a servant of Baba and worships no other God than Baba. His love for all is as unbounded and infinite as Sai love. When people ask him as to who brought such a tremendous transformation in his life, he, without any hesitation or mincing a word, would immediately say that it is Shirdi Sai Baba who is his life's guiding light and that he has no other Guru except Shri Sai and that he has surrendered at the sacred feet of Shri Sai.

Satpathyji basically comes from a family of educationalists and administrators with a high level of cultural and religious involvement. He holds multilpe masters degrees and for some years taught in Delhi University before joining All India Services where he excelled and was awarded three recognitions by the President of India for gallantry, meritorious service and distinguished service. Having retired as Director General of Police, he is currently working as advisor to an Indian corporation. He is an ideal Grihastha (house-holder). While shouldering domestic responsibilities as a husband, father, son, brother with affection and concern, he attends to the duties of his calling with dedication and devotion. As a house-holder, he has set an example in the art of living-of blending harmoniously the secular facets of life. He is additionally involved in social, educational and health related activities through his association with several NGOs like Sukariya.

The number of people, who have come in contact with him over the last two decades to find solutions to their materialistic, psychological, commercial & health issues or active spiritiual evolution runs not in thousands but in lakhs. Shri Satpathyji not only helps the needy one's invoking the name of Shri Sai but also by living as a family man, sets an example in front of Sai devotees and other people at large that ONE CAN LIVE IN THIS MATERIALISTIC WORLD OF MONEY, RELATIONS & LINKED DUTIES AND STILL BE PIOUS AND BE A DETACHED 'SAINT' AT HEART. No wonder, he always guides Sai devotees to look towards Shri Sai Baba as their 'FATHER, BROTHER AND LOVED ONE'. Then only we would be able to REALISE SAI AND UNDERSTAND SAI AS GOD, with great ease.
