Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

Everything in this world is ephemeral, transitory; it is here today, but it may not be here tomorrow. So, if you desire for something, seek the Lord, who has no decline. Instead, if you crave for progeny, wealth and all comforts, you will suffer untold misery when you are called upon to leave everything and depart. At that moment, you would lament, “Oh, did I love so deep that I may weep so loud?” In this transitory life, joy and pain are also perforce transitory. There is nothing here fit to be worshipped as eternal. So, to get immersed in this search for the evanescent and to forget the Supreme and the Everlasting is indeed unbecoming of man.
~ Sathya Sai Baba

The word ‘Sutra’ means that which, through a few words, reveals vast meanings. The Sutras discuss contrary points of view in order to remove all possible doubts about the validity and meaning of the sacred texts. The word ‘Mimamsa’, as used in ancient Indian philosophy, means the conclusion arrived at after inquiry and investigation, the inference adopted as correct after deep consideration of possible doubts and alternatives. The Vedas deal with two concepts: Dharma (Righteous actions) and Brahma (God). The Purva Mimamsa deals with Dharma or performing the rites and rituals in daily life in a righteous manner. The Uttara Mimamsa deals with Brahma (God) and its emphasis is on Jnana (experiential wisdom).

If the intellect is dull and derives happiness from sleep, slothfulness and pointing out other’s faults, it characterises Thamasic nature. This nature will make one ignore the knowledge of self throughout one’s life. True education is that which directs and counsels the mind and intellect of man towards earning Sathwic happiness. The scriptures declare “Na Sukath Labhyathe Suhkam”, that by undergoing unhappiness alone can happiness be won. This truth has to be instilled through Vidya (Self-knowledge or education). If you understand the joy of Sathwic happiness, true Vidya will be found to be easy and palatable.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

There is no compulsive rule that incarnations should occur only on earth and in human form. Any place, any form, can be chosen by God. Whichever place, whatever form, promotes the purpose of fulfilling the yearning of the devotee, that place and that form are chosen by the will of God. God is above and beyond the limits of time and space. He is beyond all characteristics and qualities, no list of such can describe Him completely.

Acquisition of positions of authority and power, of skill and intelligence which can manipulate people and things, of fame and supremacy, of personal charm, of good health and happiness or of a large family with many children or wealth… none of these can confer liberation. You cannot attain liberation by undertaking sacrifices, vows, charities, pilgrimages or donations to holy projects. Though the objective world appears real, you must be aware that it is deluding you. You must give up yearning for deriving pleasure from the objects that appear and attract – both here and hereafter. Renunciation alone can lead to immortality. You will be liberated as soon as you renounce your attachment and desire.

Ammachi – Amma – The Hugging Saint To Visit Dallas Texas June 27-28 2010

The ‘Hugging Saint’ Amma offers spiritual upliftment to people of all faiths in Dallas, TX, on June 27th and 28th, 2010. Spiritual seekers are invited to attend any of the four programs over two days to experience her love and compassion in person.

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 18, 2010 — The ‘Hugging Saint’ Amma (http://www.amma.org) will hold free programs in Dallas on June 27th and 28th as part of her 2010 North American Tour. People of all faiths are invited to attend any or all of the four programs. Two programs will be held each day to make it easy for all who are interested in receiving her blessing. Amma was born in India and she is known throughout the world for her humanitarian works and spiritual leadership.

“Amma presents the kind of leadership we need for our planet to survive. This is the most heroic person I’ve probably ever met. Because she is sitting there hugging people… The most heroic thing is caring, and she does that,” said American author Alice Walker, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for The Color Purple.

When Amma embraces people, it is not just physical contact that is taking place. The love Amma feels for all of creation flows toward each person who comes to her. Word of her selfless actions spread beyond her local community, and in 1987, Western devotees invited her on what would become the first of her many world tours. She now visits cities in North America, Africa, Europe, Australia and Asia on a regular basis offering herself for hours at a time to anyone who wishes to experience the healing power of unconditional love.

Ammachi - Pure Love

When asked, “What happens when you hug people?” Amma replied:

“When Amma embraces people, it is not just physical contact that is taking place. The love Amma feels for all of creation flows toward each person who comes to her. That pure vibration of love purifies people, and this helps them in their inner awakening and spiritual growth.”

Today the Ammaritpuri Ashram located in Amma’s birthplace of Kerala, India, is the headquarters of her worldwide social service organization, Embracing the World (ETW). With the help of donations and thousands of volunteers, ETW has built more than 40,000 houses for the homeless in India; awarded more than 30,000 scholarships to impoverished children; built orphanages in India, Africa and Haiti; and provided medical care, food and supplies to victims of tsunamis, floods, hurricanes and earthquakes throughout the world, including American victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The location of the 2010 Dallas event is:
