How do we become dear to God? – Summary of Divine Discourse on 25 February, 2016

Satsanga or good company does not mean getting into gatherings like this, or involving ourselves in the chanting of the name of God, or singing His glory or even learning some good things or listening to noble discourses.

Blood Cancer Cancelled

Swami’s compassion is usually described in a cliche as being “boundless”. We use this term freely, without fully understanding the meaning. Our mind, limited and selfishly limiting by nature, can never ever truly comprehend the limitless, completely selfless love of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba!

Develop firm faith in God first- Summary of Divine Discourse on 7 February, 2016

Every thought, every word, every action should be offered to God with love. Whether you give Me a fruit or a leaf or a drop of water, anything you give, you give with devotion, then I will accept it.
