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.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

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.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

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.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

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.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

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.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

God is above and beyond all the limits of time and space. For Him, all beings are equal. The difference between man, beast, bird, worm, insect and even God is but a difference of the ‘vessel’ (the Upadhi). It is like the electric current that flows through various devices and expresses itself in many different functions. There is no distinction in the current. It is the same. So too, the one single God activates every creature and gives rise to manifold consequences. The ignorant feel that all devices are distinct. The wise see only the one uniform current. God appreciates the consciousness of unity as the basic motive of all acts.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

Involvement in objective pleasure leads ultimately to grief. So, you must direct yourself towards the right means to attain bliss. Where can you gain bliss from? It is not inherent in external objects. Though external objects appear to bring pleasure, they bring grief as well. The Upanishads, the Brahma Sutras and the Bhagavad Gita clarify the truth that YOU are the very embodiment of bliss. The scriptures clarify the Truth and help everyone attain the highest wisdom.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

Every living being craves for happiness. It does not long for misery. Some desire the acquisition of riches; some believe that gold can make them happy. Some amass articles of luxury, some collect vehicles, but everyone is set upon obtaining things that one believes can give him/her joy. But those who know wherefrom one can get true happiness are very few in number. Sathwic happiness is of the nature where it appears to be poison in the beginning, but turns into nectar later. This happiness is secured through the awareness of the Self using the preliminary Sadhana (spiritual exercise) of Sama (control of mind), Dama (control of senses), etc. which has to be initially gone through, appears hard and unpleasant. It involves struggle and effort. So the reaction may be bitter. But, the bliss that one earns afterwards is the highest kind of happiness.
