Sundararupaya – Old Rare Pictures Of Baba III
Sathya Sai Baba: Death comes swooping like the falcon on chicken feeding on the ground. The man who dies, prays to Me to receive him. The person who weeps at his departure prays to Me to keep him alive. I know both sides of the picture, the past and the present, the crime and the punishment, the achievement and the reward and so I carry out what is just, though modified by Grace. I am not affected in any way, by arrival into the world of some or departure from it of some others. My nature is Nityanandam. You can share that Anandam by following My instructions and practising what I say.
Sathya Sai Baba: Some of you may ask why there should be a Hospital at all here? Why should not Baba cure diseases by an exercise of His will? That is the question. Well, for one thing, this Hospital is not My only Hospital. Hanumantha Rao has a Hospital in Madras where disabled children are treated and trained to be useful and self respecting individuals. That too is My Hospital. In fact all Hospitals, everywhere are Mine. I visit them all. Why, all those who call out from their hearts for succor in whatever language, form whatever climate whether from hospitals or home, are Mine. Do not confine Me to these few acres round the Prasanthi Nilayam. Wherever a person craving for Prasanthi, lives and prays, there a Prasanthi Nilayam exists.
Sathya Sai Baba: There is no Sathyam without Sivam, there is no Sivam without Sundaram. Truth alone can confer Mangalam and Mangalam alone is the real beauty. Truth is beauty. Joy is beauty. Falsehood and grief are ugly because they are unnatural. Buddhi, Chittam and Hrudayam, these are the three centers in the individual where resides Jnana, Karma and Bhakthi. The effulgence of Sathyam will reveal Sivam. Do Karma which is approved by the higher wisdom, not Karma which is born of ignorance. Then all Karma will be Sivam, auspicious, beneficial, and blessed. The experience of that Sivam is what is called Sundaram. For it confers real Ananda. That is My reality. That is why My life is named “Sathyam, Sivam, Sundaram”.
Sathya Sai Baba: No trace of fear can tarnish the purity of the heart that is shining in the splendour of truth. I am Sathya Sai. Like the name Sesha Sai with which God is known as one who is based on, who reclines on the massive coils of the poisonous snake Sesha, the meanig of Sathya Sai is one who is based on Truth. Truth knows no defeat, Truth knows no fear. It marches on heedless of acclamation or declamation.
Sathya Sai Baba: In rendering service, there should be unity of heart, head and hands. Only then service becomes sanctified. The significance of the three letters in SAI should be understood. ‘S’ stands for Service. ‘A’ stands for Adoration. ‘I’ stands for Illumination. These three represent Karma, Bhakthi and Jnana respectively. Sai teaches these three. All the three concepts are equally important. Sai is the combination of three spiritual paths of Action, Devotion and Wisdom. Just as the Pranava sound is made up of the three letters ‘A’, ‘U’,’M’, “SAI” stands for the triple forms of spiritual sadhana.
Sathya Sai Baba: I am not affected by either joy or sorrow. Mine is Samadhi or Intelligence which is Sama (steady), unaffected, unchanging wisdom.
Sathya Sai Baba: Where money is calculated, garnered and exhibited to demonstrate one’s achievements, I will not be present there. I come only to places where sincerity, faith and surrender are valued. So spend the silent hours in meditation and Namasmarana in your own homes and deepen faith. I do not need Bhajans, which like gramophone records reproduce songs and Namavalis, without any feeling or yearning while singing. Hours of shouting is not needed, a moment of concentrated heartfelt prayer, is enough to melt and move God.
