Divine Visit – Chihuahua, Mexico – October 16 & 17, 2017

The true value which gives value to human life is love. This is not the worldly love, which is contaminated with expectations. Divine love which lives by giving and forgiving, and does not want anything in return, gives true value to humans. Human beings have to develop this divine love, only then there willl be a future to this world

Divine Visit – Mexico City, Mexico – October 15, 2017

The body made of five elements is weak and will have to be given up somewhere at some point in time. Knowing death is certain, while there is still time, be wise and spend your time in realising your divinity. Between the pre-fixed manufacturing date which is the birth date and the expiry date which is the date of demise, all other dates are in your hands to use them well. Depend on the inner divinity which is the source of permanent happiness and abandon the pursuit of paltry temporary pleasures in the world outside. Happiness is union with God.

Divine Visit – Bogota, Colombia – October 13 & 14, 2017

In this passing world, the changing world, with passing time, everything has changed. But these three which are the very nature of God remain forever: the truth that you are Divine and not less; the good that you do to others that is auspicious; and your pure thought word and action, are the beauty which shall never perish.

Divine Visit – Bogota, Colombia – October 12, 2017

Education makes man out of a man. Everything comes from education, more importantly educare, that which comes from inside, must be imparted. A child is the responsibility of the entire society. He is the youngest and most important member of the society. Hence nurturing a child is the collective responsibility!

Divine Visit – Salta, Argentina- October 10 & 11, 2017

When the divine chooses us, He takes over us in our entirely. In the recent past Swami has revealed that He has no body, but henceforth every body that He meets or picks is a choice He has made, as from that moment on, that person becomes His body! Swami chooses to act through you, spreading His message of divine love and kindness.

How do you gain good concentration? – Divine Discourse Summary – October 5, 2017

When you have a pure mind, concentration is spontaneous. Due to lack of purity, many perversions enter the mind and therefore, it is very fickle.

What kind of students should come out of Sathya Sai Institutions? – Divine Discourse Summary – Tumkur – October 03, 2017

The very purpose of our educational institutions is to make the little children into men and women of divine love. The only aspiration that I have is that these children render this kind of service to society.

Why is Swami starting so many schools? – Bhoomi Puja of Sri Sathya Sai Sevaniketanam, Koppal – October 02, 2017

The reason why we are starting these many schools is to provide spiritual education along with the worldly subjects. We provide education to make man a true human being.

How do you become a good instrument of Swami? – Divine Discourse Summary – Sai Spoorthi, Annual Alumni and Alumnae Meet – October 1, 2017
Why do Indians have so many festivals? – Divine Discourse Summary – Navaratri – September 29, 2017

Because our ancient people knew that our minds are quite fickle and they will deviate from this noble path of attaining God, they incorporated so many festivities so that we always keep our mind focused on God even if it strays away.

Have you been with Swami before? – Divine Discourse Summary – Navaratri – September 26, 2017

It is the same monkeys who incarnated again as the Gopalas to be again with their Lord and enjoy His proximity. The same Gopalas have again reincarnated and are with Swami as His students, as His devotees to enjoy His proximity even now.

What are the steps to attain purity? – Divine Discourse Summary – Navaratri – September 25, 2017

First, discriminate between what gives temporary joy and what gives permanent joy (Viveka). Second, have the capacity to detach from temporary attainments (Vairagya).

Divine Visit – Argentina- October 8 & 9, 2017

Shrishti (creation) is born out of Parameshti (God), who is the embodiment of selfless love. Man is created in the image of God. The highest truth is that one must not forget the true nature of oneself, which is love, and everything else is secondary. But this love gets covered by body consciousness. So all our efforts are not to become God who is Love as we already are that, rather we need to ‘unbecome’ what we are not which is selfishness. Give up all that is not divine in you!

Divine Visit – Argentina- October 6 and 7, 2017

What we think exists, does not exist. What we think does not exist, truly exists. It’s only God who truly exists all the time, and what does not exist is the world.

Navaratri Celebrations – Sathya Sai Grama, Muddenahalli – September 30, 2017 (Day 10)

You call me Shiva Shakthi Swaroopa. What does that mean? It means that I am the cosmic source of all the male and female aspects, the purest of energies from whom, from where everything manifested in this creation.

Divine Visit – Gadag and Tumkur – October 03, 2017

Bhagawan pointed out the great culture of India which prayed for the welfare of all beings considering every one as one’s own family, which is not seen anywhere else in the world. He continued to emphasise on the need of the hour which is to impart the right kind of education to the needy, which not only enables a means of sustenance, but also provides the methods of highest achievement of the greater purpose of human life, which is to realise one’s oneness with the divine.

Divine Visit – Sri Sathya Sai Vaniniketanam, Gadag – October 02, 2017

Swami then went on to reminisce as to how this Campus which seemed impossible a year ago, came up with His sheer grace. From land to permissions to construction and other requirements, all happened within months and the Campus was up and running. All that was to ensure that these children had a future where they could be basking in Swami’s love today.

Divine Visit – Bhoomi Puja of Sri Sathya Sai Sevaniketanam, Koppal – October 02, 2017

Sathya Sai education is not merely about world class infrastructure or free of all charges, its more importantly about human values which are diminishing from the society, causing destruction and restlessness all over the world.
