Divine Visit – Malaysia – August 12, 2017

From blood donation to eye tests, from dental checkups to general medicine, every inch of space at Sai Ananda was buzzing with activity. Swami also blessed the volunteers in the kitchen, as He made a surprise visit to see all the food items which were being prepared for Narayana Seva. Swami lovingly served a few people, before proceeding to hand out dry rations to some of the needy.

Divine Visit – Malaysia – August 11, 2017

Youth is the spring of one’s life. When the body and heart is full of enthusiasm and purity, take up this ideal of sacrifice. Service is not for the sake for others, but it helps you to become closer to who you truly are!

Divine Visit – Bali – August 10, 2017

In order to achieve the four goals of human life – Dharma, Aartha, Kama and Moksha, good health is necessary. The mind, body and heart cannot work in unity, if one suffers from ill health. It is the fundamental responsibility of those who are healthy, to help those who are not healthy. One must maintain good health, so they can be of service to others. It has been in My mind to do something for those who are unwell. It is not enough if one prays with the lips, but help must be rendered through the hands as well. Hands that help are holier than lips that pray.

Divine Visit – Bali – August 09, 2017

It is from love that the entire creation has come forth, and it is in love alone, that the whole of the creation merges back. There is no place in this world, where there is no love. The Creator of this entire creation has nothing that He needs, as He owns everything, and His hands are always stretched to give, and not receive. If God has ever stretched His hand, it is for the sake of love, whether it was in the form of the half-eaten berries of Shabhari or a bowl of butter from the Gopikas. God never stretched His hand in front of the wealthy and mighty!

Divine Visit – Singapore – August 07, 2017

It is not that you have come for a Vishva Darshan, that is to see the world, but you have come to have Bhakta Darshan, that is to see the devotees, to have Darshan of these devotees which is more important for you than seeing the rest of Singapore! It is these people who work tirelessly morning to night keeping their individual requirements far below the societal needs and though they stay far away from Swami physically, yet they are very very near to Him, because they are like the bees who come to the lotus, suck the nectar and then fill themselves with this bliss. They are far more benefitting from this association with Swami than many of those who stay around like frogs!

Divine Visit – Sri Lanka – July 14 and July 15, 2017

To attain the four goals of human life – Dharma, Artha, Kama and Moksha – the first pre-requisite is good health. Therefore, it is said ‘health is real wealth’. In a strong body, which is free of diseases, a strong mind resides. Hence, a healthy body is required to attain a healthy mind in this world and beyond. A healthy mind is also required to have a healthy body. They are inter connected. The field of medicine is only addressing the health of the body. But very little attention is being paid to the health of the mind. A peaceful and content mind is required for a healthy body.
