Words of Sai

Control of the body and senses can be achieved only by spiritual practices and not by any other means. You must avoid wasting precious time in useless pursuits. You must be ever vigilant and engage the senses of perception and action by performing congenial and noble tasks to keep yourself busy. There should be no room for sloth to creep in. Also, every act must promote the good of others. Thus, while performing your daily duties in this manner, you can sublimate the body and senses, and uplift yourself.

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.

My Sweet Lord

My Sweet Lord

Posted in Sai | Comments Off on My Sweet Lord

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.

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.

“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
