 Daily Words of Sai

2nd July 2015

Without expressing your gratitude, you cannot aim to please God with anything that you may do. You will not attain any happiness in return. When you see your presiding deity, give a smile. Do not stand with a frowning face! With such a serious face, you can never hope to experience bliss. You must always be happy because bliss is your true nature. Always maintain a pleasant smile on your face. You may definitely encounter problems and obstacles in life. Grief and sorrow may sometimes assail you. Do not break down and cry. These are things that come and go. They are passing clouds and will never stay permanently to trouble you. Do not yield to them; face them head long instead. A steady faith in God will give you the satisfaction of being a true devotee.

I am Sai…

Sathya Sai Baba from Puttaparthi 1946Do you remember?

I am Sathya Sai Baba of Puttaparthi.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba in a Letter to V.R. Krishna Kumar, 1946

‘Sa’ means Divine; ‘ai’ or ‘ayi’ means Mother and ‘Baba’ means Father. The Name, Sai Baba means Divine Mother and Father. Sai’s descent is to achieve the supreme task of uniting the entire mankind as one family through the bond of brotherhood and to affirm and illumine the Divine (Aathmic) Reality within each and every being. The Divine takes the form as Avatar to reveal Himself as the basis for the entire Cosmos, and to instruct all to recognise the common divine heritage that binds everyone; so that human beings can work hard to rid themselves of animalistic qualities. I am the embodiment of Love; Love is My instrument. I reveal truth about Myself for, I desire that you should contemplate on this and derive joy. Also, may you be inspired to observe the disciplines laid down and progress towards the goal of Self-Realisation. Realise the Sai who shines in your hearts. (Divine Discourse, 19 June 1974)

Oh Lord…

When waking pray every morning of your life

“Oh Lord, I am born from the womb of sleep.

I am determined to carry out all tasks this day as offerings to you

with you ever present before my mind’s eye.

Make my words, thoughts and deeds sacred and pure;

let me not inflict pain on anyone; let no one inflict pain on me;

direct me, guide me this day”

And when you enter the portals of sleep at night, pray

“Oh Lord, the tasks of this day, whose burden I placed on you this morning are over.

It was you who made me walk, talk, think and act.

I, therefore place at your feet all my thoughts, words and deeds.

My task is done. Receive me. I am coming back to you”

(Prayers given by Bhagavan Baba)

The Universal Mantra

“Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu”

Let all beings in all worlds be happy and peaceful…

God illumines the entire universe as the Atma Tatwa immanent in all the living beings and objects. Even though God may appear to be involved in so many activities in the world, it is only for the pleasure of His devotees. He has no desire of His own.
He has only one desire – Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavantu!
  – Baba (Dussehra Discourse -2009)

Listen

For Bhagawan And The Brahmand…

Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu is a chant wholesome, selfless and true…that has the welfare of each being and the establishment of Oneness as its core. It is a chant so very dear to our Lord, Who set an example for us all to emulate through His limitless selfless actions. On 31st August 2008, Bhagawan adapted Lokah Samastha into Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavantu….so as to enable us to awaken, be aware and envelope not only our lokaah or planet with love and goodwill, but to extend and emit kindred feelings such that it includes and embraces all embodied or disembodied beings, upon all the planets the cosmos through…the basis being love for every atom of creation.

INAUGURATIONInauguration Day – 23rd November 1950 on Swami’s 25th Birthday

One day, Baba told Lakshmaiah, pointing to the hillocks south of the village,

The Sai Pravesh (the advent of Sai) will transform that region into Prasanthi Pradesh (a region of highest peace). There will rise a bhavan (mansion)! Lakhs of people from all over India, why only India, from all over the world, will come and wait there for Sai darshan (sight of Sai)!

Lakshmaiah expressed his doubt. Baba asserted,

You will have to believe it when you have to stand where we are now, trying to catch a glimpse of me, standing on the porch of that bhavan.
