‘Sadhana The Inward Path’ – Quotes From Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Sadhana - The Inward Path

Sadhana - The Inward Path

Sri Sathya Sai Baba: “There is no short cut to any laudable achievement. Steady struggle alone can ensure victory. Things that are gained with little or no effort are not worth exulting over. The process of yama, niyama, asana, pranayama, pratyahara, dhyana and dharana (control of the inner and outer senses, regulation of pose and breath, withdrawal into the inner consciousness, meditation and concentration) is difficult; but the final stage is Nirvikalpa Samadhi, the condition of perfect undisturbed equanimity. Whereas the pursuit of material pleasures will be ‘agre amritopamam pariname visham’ (like nectar at first but poison in the end). The pursuit of equanimity will be ‘agre visham pariname amritopamam’ (like poison at first but nectar in the end).”

There are many destructive forces in the world. But, luckily along with them, there are also constructive forces. As students of Vidya (True Knowledge) you should not turn yourself into worshippers of bombs and machines. You must transform yourself into active persons, worshipping the Divine. Authority and power are powerful intoxicants. They will pollute one until he/she is completely destroyed. They breed misfortune. But, genuine knowledge will confer on you fullness and fortune.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba: “The One is shining in and through the many, the One is the many. ‘Ekoham bahusyam’, the One decided to become the many to enjoy its own manifoldness. The One appears as all this diversity. That is the Truth. The insistence of the fundamental unity of all creation is the special feature of Indian thought. Do not be satisfied with paltry scraps of information. Seek the Knower behind the knowing process. That is the real victory”

Good character is the precious jewel of human life. Human birth itself is the consequence of countless good deeds and it should not be frittered away. This chance must be utilized to the fullest extent. With deep yearning and steadfast discipline, you must endeavor to experience Divinity and redeem yourself.

Eating food is a holy ritual, a Yajna. It should not be performed during moments of anxiety or emotional upheavals. Food should be considered as medicine for the illness of hunger and as the sustenance for life. Treat each trouble you encounter as a fortunate opportunity to develop your strength of mind and toughen you spiritually.

‘Sadhana The Inward Path’ – Quotes From Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Sadhana - The Inward Path

Sadhana - The Inward Path

Sri Sathya Sai Baba: “Man must proceed ever towards ‘balam’, strength; he should not take to untruth, wickedness crookedness – all of which denote a fundamental fatal trait of cowardice, ‘balaheenam’. Balaheenam is born of accepting as true a lower image of yourself than what the fact warrants. You believe you are the husk (the body) but really you are the kernal (the atma). That is the main mistake. All sadhana must be directed to the removal of the husk and the revelation of the kernal. So long as you say and feel ‘I am the body’ there is bound to be fear. But once you say and feel ‘I am Brahman’, you get unconquerable strength.”

Sri Sathya Sai Baba: “Do not give ear to what others say. Believe your experience. Whatever gives you peace and joy, Atmanandam, believe in that. That is the real basis for faith. Why should you go about asking all and sundry whether something is salty or sweet? Is it not foolish to wander about consulting people about this? Put a little on your own tongue; that will settle the matter. What you are now doing is rejecting as salty what your own experience proved to be sweet simply because someone else who has not tasted it like you proclaims it to be salty or because someone who is down with fever finds the thing bitter.”

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

The taste of food cannot be appreciated if the person is ill or if the mind is immersed in something else. Similarly, even if you are engaged in spiritual practices, you will not experience joy if your heart is filled with evil qualities. You can taste sweetness so long as there is sugar on the tongue. However, if there is even a tinge of bitterness on the tongue, your whole mouth tastes bitter. Therefore, those who aspire to attain the Holy Presence of the Lord must cultivate good habits, discipline and noble qualities. The usual accustomed ways of life will not lead you to God automatically. You must perform Sadhana (spiritual practices) to modify it suitably.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

When one is involved in the world, only worldly thoughts will arise during one’s last moments. To those who yearn whole-heartedly for the Lord, the Lord will present Himself. One may love his/her kith and kin, respect them and keep them in good humour so long as one moves about in the world. But, while still being in the world, one must offer unstinted love and loyalty all through the life to the Lord alone, none else.

More fragrant than the sweet smelling flowers like jasmine and lily, softer than butter, more beautiful than the eye of the peacock, more pleasant than the moonlight is the love of a mother. Human life is a journey from ‘I’ to ‘We’. In this short journey, you have to detach yourself from the body and develop attachment towards the ‘Self’. For this, mother’s grace is very essential.
