Sathya Sai Baba – A Thought For The Day – May 21st 2010
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).
