“Makara Sankranthi marks the movement of the Sun from the southern horizon to the northern horizon. This northward movement of the Sun has immense spiritual significance. The north is symbolised by Himaachala. Hima means snow. It is pure, untainted and soothingly cool. All these endow it with the quality of Prashanthi (perfect peace). Achala means that which is steady and unshakeable. Himaachala does not refer to the physical Himalayan mountains. It represents that which is cool, peaceful and steady. From this day the Sun is said to move towards such a state. The Sun symbolises the vision of man. The northward movement of the Sun is a call to human beings to turn their vision towards that which is cool, peaceful and unchanging, i.e. towards the divinity within.

He is the sub-stratum, the substance; the separate and the sun – the Sath; the SATHYAM
He is the awareness, the activity, consciousness, the feeling; the willing and the doing- the Chith; the SIVAM
He is the light, the splendour; the harmony, the melody, the Ananda, the SUNDARAM
Years come and go, so also pleasure and pain. Nothing confers permanent bliss except the experience of the Atma (Self). Man cannot attain peace and happiness from his actions unless he has sacred feelings within. Many people expect the New Year to confer happiness and prosperity on them. But in fact, New Year only confers on you the results of your past actions. In order to atone for your past sins, you have to cultivate sacred qualities and involve yourself in sacred activities more and more in the New Year. In fact, Bliss is within you, it originates from your sacred feelings. So, you have to manifest bliss from within – it cannot be bestowed on you by others. None can take away the bliss from you and you cannot obtain it from outside.

There was a huge halo of splendour illuminating the sky over the village when Christ was born.
This meant that He, who was to overcome the darkness of evil and ignorance had taken birth,
that He will spread the Light of Love in the heart of man and councils of humanity.
Appearances of splendour, and other signs to herald the era that has dawned are natural when
incarnations happen on earth. Jesus was to shatter the darkness that had enveloped the world and the aura of light was a sign that announced the event.
The Masters arrive in answer to man’s prayer.
“Thamaso maa jyothir gamaya”
(Lead us from darkness unto Light!)
There is one point that I cannot but bring to your special notice today. At the moment when Jesus was merging in the Supreme Principle of Divinity, He communicated some news to his followers, which has been interpreted in a variety of ways by commentators and those who relish the piling of writings on writings and meanings upon meanings, until it all swells up into a huge mess. The statement itself has been manipulated and tangled into a conundrum.
The statement of Christ is simple:
“He who sent me among you will come again!” and he pointed to a Lamb.
The Lamb is merely a symbol, a sign. It stands for the Voice—Ba-Ba; the announcement was the Advent of Baba. “His Name will be Truth,” Christ declared.
Sathya means Truth.
“He will wear a robe of red, a bloodred robe.”
(Here Baba pointed to the robe He was wearing!).
“He will be short, with a crown (of hair). The Lamb is the sign and symbol of Love.”
Christ did not declare that he will come again. He said, “He who made me will come again.”
That Ba-ba is this Baba and Sai, the short, curly-hair-crowned red-robed Baba, is come.
He is not only in this Form, but, he is in every one of you, as the dweller in the Heart.
He is there, short, with a robe of the colour of the blood that fills it”
The great axioms of Bhaaratheeya culture found in the Vedas—Ishwarassarvabhuuthaanaam, Isaavaa-yamidham sarvam, Vasudhevassarvamidham–
“God is the inner Motivator of all beings. All this is enveloped in God, All this is Vaasudheva, the Divine”— are to be in every one.
This is the inner mystery of Incarnation, God incarnating in all! All are One; The One is All.
There is only one God; He is Omnipresent. There is only one religion, the Religion of Love;
there is only one caste, the Caste of Humanity; there is only one language, the Language of the Heart.”
