    The most beautiful things in the universe can neither be seen nor touched. They can only be felt in the heart. If we think about it – all we need to do it open our hearts, have open-mindedness and humility, and anyone and everyone can feel Swami’s presence today in the subtle body. His love flows like the Ganges even today.

    Reams have been written about Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. I have also written few volumes of His biography. But even today, if someone asked me what do you know about Sri Sathya Sai Baba and my reply would be nothing! I know Him only as love and compassion and nothing beyond.

    When we are in crisis and distress, it is only God and God alone, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, who will come to our rescue. Draupadi appealed to Krishna. But did you know Krishna never appeared there? Swami went on to explain this beautifully. While in the films these days, this episode is shown as if Krishna appeared on some staircase, lifting up His hand and sari materialises from His palm and clothes Draupadi. Nothing like that actually happened. Nobody saw Krishna. Even Draupadi did not see Krishna. But everybody saw that her sari became inexhaustible.

    Hrudaya Dharma is more important than the logic of the mind. Consider the cases of Bheeshma in Mahabharata and Vibheeshana in Ramayana. Bheeshma, in spite of being fully aware of Dharma and Adharma, chose to side the Kauravas. Vibeeshana, on the other hand, followed Hrudaya Dharma and joined the side of Rama where Dharma lay.

    I would like to recollect what Swami said in a discourse in Prem Deep sometime back. After granting interviews to families of our old students on two weekends, Swami was saying, “I am very happy that I met so many of our alumni with their families. But there was one expectation, which remained in my heart, unfulfilled. Everybody asked for some material benefit. Everybody asked about their families. But no one asked what can I do for You Swami? How can I get closer to You? How can I realise God?”

    I would like to recall an incident when Swami recognised such an effort, which was made for an offering to Him. When I was the Warden of Prashanthi Nilayam hostel, Swami was once distributing watches to students in Mandir. Suddenly, He stopped the distribution and called for His car and went out. We were surprised as to why He suddenly did this. But when we came to know the background, we were thrilled.

    One on occasion, when Swami was addressing a group of devotees, I was fortunate to be a part of that session. Swami said, "Do you think that I am always only in Anandam or Muddenahalli? After I left My physical body, I am in a different loka, which is the highest loka in the cosmos i.e. Satya Loka. Most evolved souls such as the Saptarishis are always surrounding Me there in the Satya Loka. But now for the sake of My Mission, most of the time I am staying in Muddenahalli."

    Swami then explained how selfless acts of service benefit the person who renders them, at three levels, citing the example of these children who worked for Sai Annapoorna. For one, at an individual level, the service was rendered for themselves as Sai Annapoorna or Vidyadeep were constructed for their benefit. Two, as a result of their meritorious acts, they earned punya. And three, by offering these acts of service to Swami, they got unattached to the actions they performed, which would help them to escape the cycle of life.

    You may ask, why the 30 schools in each of the districts of Karnataka? Well, because Karnataka has the great fortune of hosting the third Avatar in the series of Sai Avatars, Prema Sai. He is going to come to the Mandya campus that Swami has established – the Sri Satya Sai Sharada Niketanam. “I am doing all this for Prema Sai. This subtle form, till 2022, is the transition between Sathya Sai physical form and Prema Sai physical form,” He had once explained.
