Divine Discourse Summaries

DivineDiscoursePicAfter 85 years of living His life as His message, Sri Sathya Sai Baba decided to shed His Physical Body on April 24th 2011. However, His earthly sojourn did not end there, nor did His mission. Soon after, He announced His continued presence in the Subtle Body and also His intention to hasten the process of transformation from man to divine. In His own words His message is –

“Whether I am in the body or not, the purpose is just the same. It has not changed. Whether I was Rama or Krishna or Allah or Jesus or Buddha – the purpose has always remained the same. I have come for transformation of the human heart, and I continue to do that. If there were circumstances in which I could have stayed in the physical body, I would have continued to do the same. There would not have been any change. The destination is the transformation of human into Divine.”

These are the compilation of summaries of His Divine messages in subtle form to the humanity.
