The name ‘Bhagavatha’ can be applied to every account of the experiences of those who have contacted God and the Godly. God assumes many forms and enacts many activities. The title ‘Bhagavatha’ is given to the description of the experiences of those, who have realized Him, who have been blessed by His Grace and chosen as His instruments. By Bhagavatha, we also mean those, who are attached to God, who seek the companionship of God. To be in the midst of such devotees is to foster one’s own devotion. The experience of devotees is a panacea that cures physical, mental and spiritual illnesses.

In olden times, when in any region, the people were sunk in fear or anxiety, or when the sources of joy and contentment ran dry, they traced the cause for the calamity to some fault or failure in the worship offered to God in the temples of that area. They sought to identify these mistakes and correct them, so that they could have inner peace. They believed that the crisis could be controlled through these means. Such acts are now bundled together and called “superstitions”, and are cast aside. This is not superstition at all. The ancients grasped the supreme truth only after personally experiencing its validity.

Sathya Sai Baba - A Thought For The Day

The Jagath (world) is unreal, non-existent, and the mistaken notion that it is real has to be renounced. The understanding that the idea of Jagath is a superimposition by our mind on the Reality is Jnana (Spiritual Wisdom). Though the objective world appears real, one must be aware that it is deluding us. Therefore, one has to give up the yearning for deriving pleasure from the objects that appear and attract, both here and hereafter. Thus, one is liberated as soon as one renounces all attachment and desires. The Ajnana (ignorance) can be destroyed only with the Atma Vidya (knowledge of the Divine Self). When this illusion disappears, the ups and downs that one faces in Samsara (the ever-changing world) also gets destroyed.

A tree can spread its branches wide. Its branches can bring forth blossoms which yield fruit, but only when the roots are fed with water. Instead, if the water is poured on branches, fruits or flowers, can the tree grow and spread? Society has as its root of peace and prosperity, the virtues of devotion and dedication. Hence the educational system must pay attention to the promotion and strengthening of these virtues amongst the people.

A Sutra (aphorism) enshrines in a few words, vast expanses of meaning, vast depths of fundamental significance. The Brahma Sutras gather multi-coloured flowers from all the Upanishads and string them together to form an enchanting garland. Each aphorism can be elaborated and explained in a number of learned ways, according to one’s understanding, faith, preference, experience and pleasure.

The role of a Sanyasi (monk) can be likened to a species of fish. The fish moves around in the depth of the lake; it will not be stationary at one spot. And while moving around, the fish eats up worms and the eggs of pests, thus cleansing the water. So too, the Sanyasi should always be on the move, journeying into the far corners of the land. His duty is to cleanse the society of evil by his example and precept. He must transform it by his teachings into a society free from vice and wickedness.

Acquisition of the higher knowledge alone can fulfil the main purpose of human life. Such knowledge makes one aware that one is not the inert, non-sentient body, but is really the consciousness itself manifesting as the embodiment of “Being-Awareness-Bliss” (Sat-Chit-Ananda). When this truth dawns and is experienced, one is liberated. One is freed from the fog of ignorance, (Ajnana) even in this very life. One becomes a Jivan Muktha, a person liberated even while alive.

You have to achieve many objectives during this life. The highest and the most valuable of these is winning the mercy and love of God. The love of God will add unto you the wisdom you need for attaining unshakeable inner peace. Everyone should endeavour to have an understanding of the true nature of the Divine. If you want to succeed in this pursuit, you have to cultivate the spirit of service and be engaged in good deeds which will earn you the gratitude of all people. Thus, you not only accomplish the task of cleansing your consciousness, but also become a fit candidate for achieving spiritual victory.

For establishing oneself in the contemplation of the Omnipresent Lord, there are no limitations of time or space. There is nothing like a special time or a holy place. Wherever the mind revels in the contemplation of the Divine, that becomes the holy place. Whenever the mind meditates on the Lord, that becomes the most auspicious moment. The world can achieve prosperity through disciplined souls whose hearts are pure and who represent the salt of the earth. Everyone, from this very moment, should pray for the advent of such holy souls, try to deserve the blessings of the great, endeavour to forget one’s sufferings and promote the welfare of the world.

Every one should lead their life so that no pain is caused by them to any living being. That is the supreme duty. Also, it is the duty of everyone who has had the chance of this human birth to spare a part of his/her energies occasionally for prayer, repetition of the Lord’s Name. One must devote oneself to a life of truth, righteousness, peace and good works which are of service to others. One must be afraid of doing acts that are harmful to others or deeds that are sinful, just as one is afraid to touch fire or disturb a cobra. One must have as much attachment and steadfastness in carrying out good works, in making others happy and in worshipping the Lord, as one now has in accumulating gold and riches. This is the Dharma (Right Action) of every being.
