Words of Sai

Force your mind to breathe the grander atmosphere of the Eternal. Do this by reminding it of God and His Glory every second, with every breath, by repeating any of His Names. Or engage in some work, which will take you out of your narrow self into His vast magnificence; some task where you dedicate the fruit to God, or where you devote your time and energy to share your skill, joy or knowledge with your fellow beings. Or keep yourself surrounded always by persons devoted to the higher life; persons who will encourage you to move forward along the road towards the goal. Through these means, you can achieve Chittha Shuddhi (cleansing of your mind).

Guru Poornima – 24th July 2021

Guru Poornima is the full moon day in the month of ‘Ashada’, the fourth month in the Indian lunar calendar, corresponding to end of June or early July. It is also called ‘Vyasa Poornima’, as this full moon day marks the birthday of the great sage Veda Vyasa, who categorized the vast body of Vedic knowledge in to the four Vedas – Rig, Yajur, Sama and Atharva. Even the writing of the eighteen Puranas (ancient Hindu legends) was completed by him on this day.

“The term ‘Guru’ means one who dispels the darkness of ignorance. ‘Gu’ means one who is beyond attributes (or gunas), ‘ru’ implies one who is beyond forms (rupa). This refers only to God. That is why the Guru is hailed as Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva (the holy trinity of Hindu belief). Only God is the true Guru. All others are merely teachers, like the teachers of different subjects in a college. ‘Guru’ is the one who reveals the guri (target) to the disciple. ‘Guri’ here refers to the Atmic Principle (the principle of the self)”

– Sathya Sai Baba

Guru Poornima is sacred for many reasons: the seeker who suffers from the delusion that the objective world is as real as themselves are guided into Truth. This day, those who never felt the urge to explore the Reality are inspired to seek the spring of bliss inside them. This day, pilgrims to the Lotus Feet of God, study the guide books of life. This day, disciples offer gratitude at the feet of the preceptor for the gift of light. When the Sun rises, the world is blessed with heat and light. When the Guru blesses, the pupil gets peace and joy! Remember, Guru Poornima is not a date marked in the calendar that is finished when the day is over! Know that whenever your mind, with the presiding deity of Moon, is full (Poorna), it receives Guru’s cool refreshing rays of grace! Train your mind to derive illumination from the intellect, and not from the deluding forces of the senses.

GURU BRAHMA GURU VISHNU GURU DEVO MAHESWARA

GURU SAKSHAT PARA BRAHMA THASMAI SRI GURAVE NAMAHA

“Guru is Brahman. He is the Creator; He Himself is the creation and He is the One that exists in the creation. The universe is filled with Brahman. It becomes clear that the One who Himself has become the universe is the Guru.

Guru is Vishnu. Who is Vishnu? Vishnu is one who has the quality of pervasiveness. He is the Doer and also what is done. The universe is the action, God is the Doer. God is the consciousness behind the cause and effect. The whole universe is the form of Vishnu. This Vishnu is the Guru.

Guru is Maheshvara. Who is Maheshvara? He is the one who rules all beings in the Universe. He commands and ordains everything in the universe in the right manner. Sun-rise and Sun-set go on according to His command. Seasons, rain, the day and night are His commands. Eeshvara is one that makes everything–follow its discipline without any lapse. Guru is not one who merely teaches. A Guru is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent, He is God himself.

I am Sathya Sai…

Sathya Sai Baba from Puttaparthi 1946Do you remember?

I am Sathya Sai Baba of Puttaparthi.

‘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)

Rely on the Lord…

Rely on the Lord and accept whatever is your lot.
He is in you, with you.
He knows best what to give and when.
He is full of Prema (Love).
That is My uniqueness: Prema.
Prema is a special gift I bring, the special medium through
which My Grace operates.
That is the basis of all My acts.
God is said to reside in everything.
He resides as Prema.
Devoid of Prema, the World becomes a cauldron of misery.
– Sathya Sai Baba

Buddha Poornima – 26th May 2021

Buddham Saranam Gacchami.
Dharmam Saranam Gacchami.
Sangham Saranam Gacchami.
I take refuge in the Buddha.
I take refuge in the Dharma.
I take refuge in the Sangha.

buddha-poornima-at-puttaparthi-sathya-sai-baba 2The day of Vaisakh Purnima, which usually falls in the month of May, is considered most sacred by Buddhists all over the world. This day is significant for three reasons. It was on this day that Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, was born as Prince Siddhartha at Lumbini in Nepal in 560 B.C. It is also the day when He attained enlightenment at Gaya in India, after years of search and enquiry into the causes and remedy for sorrow in the world. Thereafter, Siddhartha came to be known as Buddha, or the Enlightened one. He preached that desires are at the root of all sorrow and hence advocated the path of right conduct and the right use of senses as the way to enlightenment. He attained Nirvana (Unity with the Absolute) in 480 B.C., again on the day of Vaisakh Purnima.

This auspicious day is observed as Buddha Purnima

“Today is Buddha Poornima. Poornima means full moon. The underlying message of Buddha Poornima is that the mind should shine with total purity like full moon; it should unite with its source i.e., the Atma which is pure and effulgent. There is no darkness on the full moon night. On this auspicious day of Buddha Poornima, we should attain full purity of the mind.”- Baba

“The Message I Bring”

Why I incarnated in this age

For the protection of the virtuous, for the destruction of evil-doers and for establishing righteousness on a firm footing, I incarnate from age to age.

Whenever disharmony (asanthi) overwhelms the world, the Lord will incarnate in human form to establish the modes of earning peace (prasanthi) and to reeducate the human community in the paths of peace. At the present time, strife and discord have robbed peace and unity from the family, the school, the society, the religions, the cities, and the state.

Easwaramma Day – 6th May

Easwarama and Swami 3A Living Scripture on Ideal Womanhood

(A Radio Sai Presentation)

May 6th every year, is celebrated as Easwaramma Day, commemorating the anniversary of the passing away of the saintly lady who was blessed to be mother to the Avatar of the Kali age. Bhagawan exhorts His devotees, especially children, to revere the mother as God. Hence, this day is a celebration of the sacred ideal of Motherhood. Easwaramma was very fond of children and was one of the pioneers of the Bal Vikas movement. Hence, this day is also celebrated as Bal Vikas Day when hundreds of Bal Vikas gather in Bhagawan’s presence to present before Him their cultural programmes and imbibe the highest spiritual lessons from their Divine Mother. Narayana Seva (feeding of the poor) is also undertaken on this day.

6th May 2021

Easwarama and Swami

“Easwaramma breathed her last in this very Mandir. Summer classes were going on in May 1972. She used to come and sit in these classes. Swami used to be amused at her presence and asked her what she followed in these classes. She used to say, “I am not interested in these studies. I come here to see how the students of Swami conduct themselves, how they obey His commands and how they react to Swami’s advice and teachings.” The parents take great pains in bringing up their children with expectation that they may lead a respectable life. Are the children behaving in accordance with the expectations of their parents? They wear new clothes provided to them by their parents, but do they spare any thought for the hardships their parents undergo to procure these clothes?

All of you who have gathered here have to take a pledge today. Live a good life. Be ready to help others. Love children, respect elders, respect all according to their status in society. Living up to these ideals is the best way to lead one’s life. Imprint these principles firmly on your heart. Act in a manner so as to please your parents. Only then will your life find fulfillment. You are conducting Bhajans at various places and at different times. But mere singing of Bhajans is not enough, behaviour and conduct are also important”.

Know Who He Is

Know Who He Is
Who is He that dwells
In the castles you build on the clouds,
In the varied narrative of your hopes,
In the agonies of your mind,
In the wailings of your heart?
Who is He that dwells—but, yet, is mute?
Who is He that dwells
In the surgings of your breast,
In the coils and currents of your craving,
In all Your sweet imaginings,
In the swing of joy and pain?
Who is He that dwells—and with you, swings?
Who is He that dwells
In the streams of tears you shed,
In the warm sighs that must heave,
In the listless path you tread.
In the hazy tunes you hum?
Who is He that dwells—but, does not soothe?
Who is He that dwells
In the prayerful calls you utter,
In the thoughts you mould and shatter,
In the tiresome gasps you falter,
In the frolics that you dream?
Who is He that dwells—and, listening, nods?
Who is He that dwells
As the image in your eye,
As the star of your moving step,
As the sanctum of your heart,
As accomplice in your thievery?
Who is He that dwells—and, never himself reveals?
Who is He that dwells
In the very same place as you,
In the flickering faith you feel,
In the will and wish of your mind,
In the ‘my’ and ‘mine’ of your thoughts?
Who is He that dwells— and, yet, dwells not?
Who is He that dwells
Saying He knows your mind,
Admitting He feels your attachment,
Declaring “I am Yours”
Receding, when you approach?
Who is He that dwells—but, does not speak?
Who is He that dwells
Whose native home you do not know,
Whose name you cannot recognise,
Who is in every place you know,
Who is up to any task?
Who is He that dwells—and, hides?
Who is He that dwells
As the light of the minute star,
As the form of the refreshing breeze,
As the refuge of the weak,
As the solace of all who seek?
Who is He that dwells—and, feeds the fantasy?
Who is He that dwells
Over the milk-white moonlit clouds,
Above the distant stars,
In the chariot decked with jewelled imagery,
The Glory of all the Worlds?
Who is He that dwells—and, proudly pomps?
Well! He is the Master of All;
Eternal Joy of the Soul!
The God of Everyone!
Beyond all your flights of thoughts.
This is all He; He alone Is.
Effulgent as the Moon,
Majestic as Creation
Charming as the Sky
Mighty as the Ocean
Is the Lord, the Great One.
—Baba
