Words of Sai

Faith is essential for devotion. Without faith man can never realize his true nature. Faith, however, has to be suffused with Love. Such love can make the Divine and the devotee dance in ecstasy oblivious to everything else. The nation is plunged in myriad troubles because it has forgotten the supreme principle of Love.

Sri Krishna Janmashtami – 11 & 12 August 2020

lord-sri-krishnaBhagawan had declared that Lord Krishna’s advent took place at 3 a.m. on 20th July, 3228 B.C, the Ashtami Day (eighth day after full moon) under the star ‘Rohini’ in the dark fortnight.(Krishna Paksha) of Shravana Masa in the year named ‘Srimukha’.

Today we are celebrating the Birthday of Krishna. You are attaching importance to His body, but not to His teachings. You will be celebrating Krishna’s Birthday in the true spirit of the term only when you put His teachings into practice…Baba

SWAMI KRISHNAKrishna Bhajans sung by Sathya Sai Baba

The Mystical Sport of Sai Krishna

 Even the smallest acts of Krishna were saturated with supreme sweetness. Krishna was everyone’s dearest kinsman and fastest comrade. The Leelas (Divine Sport) of Krishna are sweet and meaningful. All activities of Krishna were for the well being of the World. His advent was for the uplift of the world from wickedness and unrighteousness. It was also for fulfilling the needs of those who are devoted to Him, for the establishment of righteousness and the revival of the Vedas. Though people caught in the coils of ignorance see the Leelas as self-centered and even motivated by delusion, genuine devotees cherish each one of these as significant and sustaining examples of Grace. The Lord showers Grace on each and every one in such a way that suits the time, the person and their aspirations.

– Bhagavatha Vahini, “Krishna Avatara” Chap 34.

OM SRI SATHYA SAI KRISHNAYA NAMAH

All the actions that you undertake must be sacred. There should be harmony in your thought, word and deed. The proper study of mankind is man. “Work is Worship”, “Duty is God”. This was the teaching of our ancient seers. Consider all activities as an offering to God and all work as God’s work. Just as two wings are essential for a bird to soar high in the sky, two wheels for a cycle to move, Prema (Love) and Seva (service) are essential for man to reach his destination. No benefit accrues from rendering service devoid of love. Do not expect any returns for your acts of service. The satisfaction which you derive from rendering service is itself a reward.

KRISHNA - Sai Kulwant Hall (March 2013)

People merely say, “Krishna, Krishna,” as they go round or pass-by a temple. Of what value is such part-time devotion? They are mere name’s sake Bhaktas. You must strive to earn the great wealth of God’s love. God is omnipresent in all His attributes. One experiences this unity. Ramadasa also had this experience. Thaneesha put him in jail, but he never gave up the name of Rama. “O Rama! When all is your form, how can I be apart from you,”, he prayed.

There are those who sit in Dhyana or meditative postures. But their minds are in the market or in hair dressing shop. Is this Dhyana or Japa? The mind should be immersed in Krishna. Instead it is filled with desires (Trishna). What is needed is Krishna not Trishna. Krishna will fulfil all your Trishnas.

Bhagavad Gita

Chapter 12

Bhakti Yoga – The Path of devotion

In chapter twelve Lord Krishna extols the glory of devotion to God.

Along with this he explains the different forms of spiritual disciplines and discusses

the qualities of the devotees who by performing their activities in this way become very dear to Him.

Thus this chapter is entitled: The Path of Devotion.

More than the adherent of the path of karma, jñâna or yoga, the follower of the path of bhakti is declared fortunate and superior. He is better than the yogî, the sannyâsî, the jñânî and the sadhaka who takes up the discipline of karma. – Prasanthi Vahini, p. 76

“The word (Krishna) has three meanings:

(1) “Krushathi-ithi Krishna” that is, “The One who ploughs is called Krishna.” The field here symbolizes the heart. The heart should be cleared of weeds (evil qualities). It should be filled with love. The seeds of the Lord’s name should be sown in it. Krishna is the one who inspires the devotee to do all this.

(2) “Karshathi-ithi Krishna” that is, “The One who attracts is called Krishna.” Krishna has the supreme power of attraction. By His words, His sport, His music and all His actions, He attracts all people. This power of Divine attraction is present in everyone. Hence, everyone is potentially Krishna.

(3) “Kushyathi-ithi Krishna” that is, “The One who imparts bliss is called Krishna.” Everyone seeks happiness. The Divine, who is the embodiment of happiness, is in you. God wants you to be happy, but you do not realize it. Try to recognize the source of bliss within you. It is not the true nature of man to be unhappy. When anyone is sad, people around him are concerned about him. You should always be happy, because you are the embodiment of the Atma. Never give way to worry.

Guru Poornima – 5th July 2020

5th July 2020

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.

– Divine Discourse, Jul 18, 1970

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.

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.

The laws of heaven were born
Of consciousness set on fire,
From this came the stillness of the night,
And from this also the ocean with its waves.
