Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s 65th Birthday, the celebrations took place at Hillview Stadium. A large crowd attended these festivities.
One of the more important events was the reading out of ‘Your Mission Has Begun’ to the assembled devotees.
You may read the text of this announcement .
Your mission has begun.
Those are my words to you, My Beloved devotees.
Each of you has a unique and valuable part to play in this lifetime.
Only those whom I have called can serve Me.
My mission has now reached that point in time when
Each one of you now has work to do.
This planet has a purpose in the great galaxy in which it is held.
That purpose is now unfolding before your eyes.
I call upon you to radiate the devotion within you
so that its unseen power will envelop all who come into your orbit.
To successfully perform your part
always remain centred upon Me.
Allow yourself to impart that purity of heart within you
towards all human beings and all living creatures
and do not reach for the fruits of your work.
This part of My mission is performed in absolute silence.
You are My instruments from whom My love will pour.
Be always aware that the moment you let your ego
descend upon you, my work ceases.
When you have overcome your negative unmindfulness
you will again become My Source.
The multiplication of My Love will be felt throughout the world.
I have prepared you for this work over many incarnations.
I have drawn you to Me.
I have made great steps in My mission
over these past incarnations.
My work is ceaseless and so your work, too, is without end.
Know that I am within you and without you.
There is no difference.
Rid yourselves of petty matters for evermore.
You are now ME and I am now THEE.
There is no difference.
My darshan shall pour forth from Me to and through you.
You may be unaware of this constant action.
Be ever pure of heart and soul and mankind in your lifetime
will benefit from your unique qualities.
Others too, will join Me in this mission when I draw them to Me.
The time is approaching when all humanity will live in harmony.
That time will be here sooner than one expects.
Before it arrives be prepared for whatsoever is needed
to reveal to every living thing the true purpose of existence.
It is not what anyone alive can imagine.
It is not something that one can try to aspire to.
It is beyond all comprehension.
I can say that is beauty is magnificent beyond all dreams.
And as each of you perform your silent work,
I will embrace you to My heart
and henceforth your souls shall be lifted up
and your eyes will reveal My presence within.
This I say to all My Devotees from the Lord’s Mountaintop
where all the universes become one.
Be about My work, My beloved Devotees
Your breath will carry the scent of the blossoms of Heaven,
Your example will be that of Angels. Your joy will be My joy.
