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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
