How will Swami change the world? – Divine Discourse Summary – October 31, 2019

If half of the world that has every of these things starts thinking about the other half of the world which does not have it, the whole world will have all that they need for a comfortable life. That is the one and the only surest solution to solving all the problems of the world when everyone starts thinking about every other person. I want to change the individual to change the world. I want to sensitise every individual about the needs and the difficulties and the troubles and sorrows of the other individual.

My way is to change the individual so that each individual does more for others than for oneself. I dream of a future of the world where no child, not even a child, not a single person must go on an empty stomach to sleep. There should not be any child who is deprived of the right kind of education for whatever reason. There should be no one who suffers in sickness for the want of medical care, for the want of access to healthcare due to other circumstances like economics. I dream of a world where there is shelter above the head of every person, there are clothes on the person of every person and there is food in the stomach of all. That is the world that I dream of and that is the world that I am working towards. One may think Sai Baba has lot of money, so He keeps announcing all kinds of projects. We don’t have money, but we have men and women, we have people with us, that is why we are able to do this. My wealth is My people. When I sensitise them to the needs of others, they do everything in their might to relieve them of their sufferings and that is how the world becomes better, one person a day, every day.

The right way of solving the problems of the world is to transform the people of the world, to make them more compassionate, make them selfless, make them more sensitive to the problems, to the difficulties and sufferings of others. Men are more valuable than all the wealth of the world. When people are transformed, the world will be transformed. When you all grow up, dear children and all the devotees who are listening to it from across the world, all that I expect from everyone is that let us stop asking things for ourselves, let us think in a selfless way for the welfare of all. That alone pleases Me. And that alone will transform the world for better. This is the essence of all spirituality. Sarve bhavantu sukhinaha sarve santu niramaya sarve bhadrani pashyantu ma kaschid dukha bhagbhavet Let all be happy, let all be healthy, let all see good and auspicious everywhere, let no one have any sorrow. This is the essence of all spirituality.
