Sri Sathya Sai Vrindawith Love, at His service

What is the greatest service man can do for society? – Divine Discourse Summary – February 25, 2018

The greatest service that man can do to society is to be a good example. For, the society does not learn much by hearing but it learns much more by seeing. One good action is equivalent to a crore of good words. Good people even with limited capacities and abilities have done great transformation in the world and helped many many people. Who is a good person? The one who keeps God in himself is a good person.  For, all good is born out of God.

The three pillars of our educational idea consist of Daiva Preeti as the very first basis – that is love for God; second one is Papa Bheeti – the fear of doing wrong; and the third is Sanga Neeti -morality in the society. However, morality in the society or fear for sin cannot be achieved without love for God. No law in the universe can make people moral and fear the wrong doing unless they have love in their heart for each other. Let Me tell you, dear children, the most important education that you have received in these institutions is Daiva Preeti. Where there is Bhakti this love for God, Shakti, Yukti, Mukti everything will come in.  Therefore, never let go of this wisdom, this great education that you have received that of being able to love God in your heart.  

Any good that you do will never go waste. All the good you do is like an insurance which gets accumulated and comes to your rescue at the time of your need.  Every good that you do brings you the insurance of God’s grace which is always there to protect you when you need it the most. You should not ever break your word once given.  And that is the quality of a good person. The whole purpose of the Sathya Sai University for Human Excellence is in the first place create people who are suffused with goodness, suffused with godness before greatness. The true degree that one must achieve in this university is their own divinity. Apart from the hand and the head, it is the heart that should guide your way in life and that is what you must learn in our institution.  Let your hands and head engage in compassionate acts, compassionate deeds which are born out of heart. You are already divine; all that which is not divine – your selfishness, your greed, your limited thinking, your narrow-mindedness – you must give up; then what remains is divinity and that is what you have to achieve in our university.  I value the purity, the selflessness with which you are thinking and you are acting. If you become selfless like Me, then I think our education, our efforts have found its fulfilment.
