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.

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.

You must know that there is no end to the incarnations that God takes. He has come down on countless occasions. Sometimes He comes with a part of His glory, sometimes for a particular task, sometimes to transform an entire era of time, an entire continent of space, sometimes with a fuller equipment of splendour. The drama enacted by the Lord and the devotees drawn towards Him is the subject matter of Bhagavatha (Stories on the Glory of God). Listening to these stories promotes the realization of God. Many sages have testified to its efficacy and extolled the Glory of God, and they helped to preserve it for posterity.

The awareness of Brahman (God) cannot be won by the accumulation of wealth or even by giving away of riches. Nor can it be achieved by reading texts, rising to power, acquiring degrees and diplomas, or performing scriptural sacrifices and rituals. The body is an anthill, with the mind inside the cavity. The mind has hidden in it, the serpent named Ajnana (ignorance). This serpent cannot be killed by resorting to Kamya Karma (pleasurable activities). Jnana (spiritual wisdom) is the only weapon that can kill the serpent of ignorance. That person alone who has faith can secure this spiritual wisdom.
