 Words of Sai

No spiritual study or sadhana can help to purify one’s heart, unless one makes the effort himself. And when the heart is purified, it becomes a worthy abode for the Divine. Whatever you do, you must regard it as a duty done without any motive of self-interest or selfish gain. It is only when all actions are done as offerings to the Divine, will they become sanctified and liberating. Through Icchaa shakthi karmas (desire filled actions) we take birth, through anaasakthi karmas (desireless actions) we can attain freedom from re-birth.

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)

Light Meditation

Guided Jyoti (Light) Meditation (Audio Source Unknown)

As regards the technique of meditation, different teachers and trainers give different forms of advice. But I shall give you now the most universal and the most effective form. This is the very first step in spiritual discipline. At first, set a few minutes every day for meditation, and extend the time as you feel the bliss that you get. Let it be in the hours before dawn. This is preferable because the body is refreshed after sleep, and the dealings of daytime will not yet have impinged on you. Have a lamp or a candle before you with an open, steady, and straight flame. Sit in front of the candle in the lotus posture or any other comfortable sitting position. Look on the flame steadily for some time, and closing your eyes try to feel the flame inside you between your eyebrows. Let it slide down into the lotus of your heart, illuminating the path. When it enters the heart, imagine that the petals of the lotus open out by one, bathing every thought, feeling, and emotion in the light and so removing darkness from them. There is no space for darkness to hide. The light of the flame becomes wider and brighter. Let it pervade your limbs. Now those limbs can never indulge in dark, suspicious, and wicked activities; they have become instruments of light and love. As the light reaches up to the tongue, falsehood vanishes from it. Let it rise up to the eyes and the ears and destroy all the dark desires that infest them and which lead you to perverse sights and childish conversation. Let your head be surcharged with light and all wicked thoughts will flee there from. Imagine that the light is in you more and more intensely. Let it shine all around you and let it spread from you in ever widening circles, taking in your loved ones, your kith and kin, your friends and companions, your enemies and rivals, strangers, all living beings, the entire world. Since the light illumines all the senses every day so deeply and so systematically, a time will soon come when you can no more relish dark and evil sights, yearn for dark and sinister tales, crave for base, harmful, deadening toxic food and drink, handle dirty demeaning things, approach places of ill-fame and injury, or frame evil designs against anyone at any time. Stay on in that thrill of witnessing the light everywhere. If you are adoring God in any form now, try to visualize that form in the all-pervasive light. For Light is God; God is Light. Practice this meditation as I have advised regularly every day. At other times repeat the name of God (any Name fragrant with any of His many Majesties), always taking care to be conscious of His might, mercy, and munificence.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba

GAYATRI

SAI GAYATRISai Gayatri

Om Saayeeshvaraaya Vidhmahe

Sathya Dhevaaya Dheemahi

Thannassarvah Prachodayaath

I know through Gurus and Shastras (and by direct experience) that Sai is God Himself:

He is Bhagavan and Iswara.

I meditate on this form in my heart with all my mental faculties. He is the embodiment of truth, divinity, universal consciousness and one who pervades all the worlds.

I pray to such a Sai Parameswar to direct our intellects to engage in auspicious and righteous activities.

I meditate on this great form.

GAYATRI

SAI GAYATRI MATA PRASANTHI NILAYAMGayatri Mata at Prasanthi Nilayam

OM BHUR BHUVA SUVAHA

TAT SAVITUR VARENYAM

BHARGO DEVASYA DHEEMAHI

DHIYO YO NAH PRACHODAYAT

“O Mother ! Who subsists in all the three kaalas (Time: Past, Present and Future),

in all the three lokas (Lokas: Heaven, Earth and Lower Regions)

and in all the three gunas (Gunas- Attributes: Sathwa, Rajas and Thamas),

I pray to Thee, to illumine my intellect and dispel my ignorance just as

the splendrous sunlight dispels all darkness.

I pray to Thee to make my intellect serene and bright and enlightened”.

“Remember. Gayatri is a treasure you must guard throughout your life.

Never give up the Gayatri; you may give up or ignore any other mantra, but,

you should recite it at least a few times a day.

It will protect you from harm, wherever you are,

in a bus or car, or a railway station or plane, in a bazaar or on the road.

Brahma-prakasa, the effulgence of Brahma, will descend on you

and illumine your Intellect and light your Path when this mantra is chanted.

Gayatri is Annapurna, the Mother, the Sakthi that animates life.

So do not neglect it”. – Sathya Sai Baba
