Seed Of Goodness

Swami was talking to the mother of a student, who was happy spending all his winter holidays in practising for the Brass Band programme to be presented during Swami’s 92nd Birthday celebrations.Unlike many other mothers, she was very happy that the boy did not mind being away from home for Swami’s sake. She confessed that her son had totally changed in the last few months of studies in Swami’s school.

Become Me!

On another occasion, when somebody asked, “Swami, You have such a grand mission, how can I help You in Your mission?” One would have thought that by being a doctor in the hospital or by being a teacher in the school or by being a volunteer in His Seva projects, one could help Him. But, Swami spoke again to the surprise of all when He said, “You can help Me in My mission by becoming Me, because if one Sai Baba could do so much, then two Sai Babas can do a lot more together!”

Karma Transfer!

“If someone prays selflessly for others, then I can destroy that Karma, just like seeds that get destroyed in the fire, and lose their potency to germinate. Therefore, God is called ‘Karma Dhwamsine Namaha – Salutations to the destroyer of Karma’.  So I always tell everyone to pray for all, ‘Samastha Loka Sukhino Bhavantu – May all beings in all the worlds be happy’. When you pray for all thus, since you are also a part of that ‘universal all’, you are saved too!”

Atithi Devo Bhava

It was in Ottawa, when the hosts came to serve Swami that He remarked, ”In Indian culture the guest is considered as God and the scriptures say ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’. It was a great ideal that everyone lived by. Today you are so fortunate as it’s not merely about ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ (Guest is God) but it is ‘Devo Atithi Bhava’ (God is Guest)”, He added with a smile.”

Lost and Found!

“With Swami you will never get lost anywhere in the world.”
Overwhelmed, the youth burst out, “Swami I only want to be lost in God.” And pat came the reply from Swami, “You can not be LOST in God, you can be only FOUND in God.”

Find that permanent solution! Just take care of children from 6 to 16 years, because it is not their fault! It is not their fault that they are in that position. So we have to help them, to come out of that position.” This led to ‘Sai Ashraya’, with the slogan ‘Street to Stability’, focusing on therapeutic care, and management of home care, from housing and education, to job placements and so forth.

The highest of all devotion is the devotion without any desires. Desire less devotion is the sweetest, it is the purest, it is the closest to the Lord’s heart and such a devotee alone is a true devotee. Others are only give and take, give and take, they are business devotees

It is not about giving, but creating value, and sharing that value with their stakeholders. A financially strong, healthier and better society will lead to stronger business growth. And the value so generated will in fact flow back to the Corporations through greater productivity, a more responsive community, and greater business opportunity. Corporate Social Responsibility then becomes Corporate Social Investments.

The Lord gave His assurance to the whole of mankind, ‘you may be the worst of the sinners, you may be the most wicked person in the world, but if you start remembering My name all the time, I will consider you as a Sadhu, as a man of God’.

Dense trees covered with thick foliage in varying shades, enhanced with a peaceful silence, is the setting of this beautiful residence, which will eventually become an Ashram in the East Coast, as willed by Bhagawan.

All the world is a dream!

“That’s true, the deeper the details in the dream, the more convincingly real it appears to be. The more your senses are engaged in this dream, the more real it appears to be. Therefore, the wise ones withdrew their senses from the sense objects and abided in their true selves all the time, so they don’t get falsely convinced about its unreal nature.”

MY MOTHER SAI

The era of the advent of an avatar is no ordinary time. Lucky are we to be chosen by Him to be His contemporaries. I believe it must be by the merits I have acquired in my previous lives that I was born in a family in which Bhagawan was their Master.

When most of the men and women choose world over God and greed takes over, which succeeds against the human aspiration to help others, all the problems happen. Instead to choose God over the world is the panacea for the problem of individuals, for the problems of families, for the problems of nations and for all the problems of the world.

Namasmarana is the most important. It is said that in the age of Kali, there is no other rescue for one than Hari nama. ‘Kalau Nastyeva Gatir Anyatha’. Only by chanting the name, one can rescue oneself from this Kaliyuga, otherwise there is no other safety, no other rescue for people.

If you want to know Me…

He heard it, smiled, and leaned a little forward on His recliner sofa, to come closer to my face and whispered, “IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ME, THEN BECOME ME!”

Inauguration of Sri Sathya Sai Prashanthi Niketanam – Campus for Women (Centre for Human Excellence), Nallakadirenahalli, Chikkaballapur – June 07, 2017

100 years from now, the glory of Bhagawan will continue to be written as the unique phenomenon of the subtle form will be an unparalleled one in history of mankind. However if we as contemporaries of Bhagawan can understand and be a part of this sacred mission, we can redeem ourselves and emancipate our lives.

Aim to be good and not great – Divine Discourse Summary – June 04, 2017

You should not lose and waste your time in vain talk, idle talking and should always use your time well. Don’t waste time. Don’t waste money. Don’t waste energy. Don’t waste life.

End to End!

It wasn’t long ago that in Germany when someone during the Youth Meet asked Swami as to how to introduce Him to the youth who are new, He said, “Tell them I am the servant of servants, and not the Master of Masters”.
