You must pray until the world is established in happiness. Only when the Lord arrives, the religion of Truth, Peace, Compassion, Wisdom and Love will grow and prosper. The roadway laid out by holy souls has to be repaired now and then, either by those who travel through it or those who claim authority over it. It is for the sake of such repairs that the Lord sends occasionally some authorised individuals, sages, and divine personages. Through the Sadbodha or good teachings of these, the path opened by the Godmen of the past is again made clear and smooth.

Truly speaking, prayers of great, holy people act as an invitation for the advent of the Lord. In the external world, when the subjects need any convenience or help, they approach the rulers and inform them of their needs. So also, in the spiritual kingdom, when there is no possibility of achieving and acquiring devotion, charity, peace and truth, the good and great souls who desire to achieve them, pray to the Lord within themselves. Then, in response to their prayers, the Lord Himself comes into the world and showers His grace on everyone. This is known to all who have read the stories of the Lord.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

People have now become more vicious than ever. They utilize their intelligence and skills to indulge in cruelty. People relish and revel in inflicting pain on others so much that as history reveals, around 15,000 wars have been waged in the last 5,500 years. The impending atomic war threatens to destroy the entire human race. What exactly is the cause of all this anxiety and fear? It is clear that the beast in the human being is still predominant and has not yet been overcome. Only when this is achieved can our country attain peace and joy.

For political or other reasons, some persons are arrested and kept in detention in order to preserve law and order of the country. They are kept confined in big bungalows and given special treatment as befits their status and provided meals and also luxury articles as commensurate with their grades in social and political life. However, around the bungalow and the garden, there will always be policemen on guard. Whatever be the standard of life enjoyed by the prisoner, he is not a free man. So too, a person confined in the ‘prison’ of the world should not be feel elated over the sensual comforts he/she can enjoy. He/she must not feel proud of his/her friends and kinsmen around but must recognize and keep in mind that he/she is in prison.

One has to be careful in matters relating to realization of God. Whatever inconveniences one may encounter, one must try to carry on one’s Sadhana (spiritual practice) without any break or modification in the discipline. One name that does not give any slightest feeling of dislike or disaffection should be selected for meditation and japa (repetition). One should not change the Name and the Form that one has loved and cherished and selected for repetition. Concentration is impossible if the Name is changed; the mind will not attain one-pointedness.

Hanuman As A Pillar Of Faith

Hanuman As A Pillar Of Faith

Faith is very important. When lust, anger and other bad qualities diminish and disappear, faith in the Eternal Self and in the rightness of spiritual inquiry will grow and get confirmed. Non-attachment is the very foundation for attaining the Universal Absolute. Even for a small structure, the foundation has to be stable and strong, or else it will fall in a heap pretty soon. To make a garland, we require a string, a needle and flowers, don’t we? So too, when Jnana (wisdom) has to be won, the string of devotion, the needle of non-attachment and the flowers of steady, single-pointed focus are essential.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

If Vedanta (Vedic Philosophy) is spoken parrot-like to others without any attempt to put it into practice in one’s own life, it is not just deceiving others but deceiving oneself, which is even worse. Therefore you must be as you want others to be. It is not the nature of a Sadhaka (spiritual aspirant) to search for faults in others and hide his/her own faults. If your faults are pointed out to you by anyone, do not argue, try to prove they are wrong and do not bear a grudge against him/her for it. Reason within yourself how you are at fault and set right your behaviour. Instead, rationalizing your faults for your own satisfaction or wreaking vengeance on the person who pointed them out – these are certainly not the traits of a Sadhaka or Bhaktha (devotee).

Divine Lessons From Sathya Sai Baba

Sri Sathya Sai Baba: “It is not a question of surrendering or giving to some other one. One surrenders to oneself. Recognition that the Atma is oneself is to surrender. Surrender really means the realization that all is God, that there is nobody who surrenders, that there is nothing to be surrendered, nor is there anyone to accept the surrender. All is God. There is only God.”

Every person is prone to commit mistakes without being aware of it. However bright the fire, some smoke is bound to come from it. So also, whatever good deed one might do, there may be a trace of bad in it. However, every effort should be made to ensure that the good is more and the bad is less in due course of time. You must also carefully think over the consequences of what you do, talk or execute. In whatever way you want others to behave, love and honour you, in the same way you should first behave, love and honour them. If you do not love and honour others and complain that they are not treating you properly, it is surely a wrong conclusion.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

The benefit we can derive from anything is proportional to the faith we place in it. From adoration of Gods, pilgrimages to holy places, uttering of Mantras (hymns) or resorting to doctors, we derive benefits only according to the measure of our faith. When someone gives a discourse, the more faith we have in the individual as a scholar and expert, the more clearly and directly we can draw the subject into our hearts and understand it deeply. For the growth of faith and the fostering of clear understanding, the most essential requirement is the purity of the heart.
