Bhagawan - The Divine
Avatar - Revelations - 1
Taken from Various Discourses and Talks by Bhagawan :
No one can understand my Mystery. The best you can do is to get
immersed in it. It is no use your arguing about pros and cons; dive
and know the depth; eat and know the taste.
You must dive deep into the sea to get the pearls. What good is it
to dabble among the waves near the shore, and swear that the sea has
no pearls in it and that all tales about them are false? So also if
you must realise the full fruit of this Avathar, dive deep and get
immersed in Sai Baba. Half-heartedness, hesitation, doubt, cynicism,
listening to tales, all are of no avail. Concentrated complete faith
- that alone can bring victory.
In truth you cannot understand the nature of My Reality, either
today, or even after a thousand years of steady austerity or ardent
inquiry, even if all mankind joins in that effort. But, in a short
time, you will become cognizant of the Bliss showered by the Divine
Principle which has taken upon itself this sacred body and this
sacred Name. Your good fortune, which will provide you this chance,
is greater than that which was available for anchorites, monks,
sages, saints, and even personalities embodying facets of Divine
Glory. Do not allow doubt to distract you; if only you will install
in the altar of your heart steady faith in My Divinity, you can win
a vision of My Reality.
The Avatar takes the human form and behaves in a human way so that
humanity can feel kinship with the divinity. At the same time he
rises to godly heights so that mankind also can aspire to reach God.
People could not stand the Lord in super-human form. ... If the Lord
came in all His majesty people would be afraid and would have no
opportunity to know and love him. It is only when the Lord comes in
a human body that people are able to approach him and learn to love
him and know him even a little bit. But one should not make the
mistake of thinking that is all there is. ... For instance, the
airplane flying high in the sky descends to the airport. But one
should not make the mistake of thinking that the plane is a ground
machine because they see it on the ground. In like fashion, although
the Lord has made a landing here on earth, so to speak, He is not
limited to His human form.
I am new and ever ancient. I come always for the restoration of
Dharma, for tending the virtuous and ensuring them conditions
congenial for progress, and for educating the "blind" who miss the
way and wander into the wilderness.
Some doubters might ask, can Parabrahman assume human form? Well,
man can derive joy only through the human frame; he can receive
instruction, inspiration, illumination only through human language
and human communication.
You may be seeing me today for the first time, but you are all old
acquaintances for Me. I know you through and through. My task is the
spiritual regeneration of Humanity through Truth and Love. If you
approach one step nearer to me, I shall advance three steps towards
Wherever you walk, I am there. Whomsoever you contact, I am in that
person. I am in each. From each, I will respond. You can see Me in
one place and miss Me in another. You cannot escape Me or do
anything in secret.

People tell me that mankind is on the brink of destruction, that the
forces of hypocrisy and hate are fast prevailing on all continents,
and that anxiety and fear are stalking the streets of every city and
village in the world; there is no need to tell me this, for I have
come precisely for this reason. When the world is on the verge of
chaos, the Avatar comes to still the storm raging in the hearts of
men. Prasanthi, the higher Peace, will be established soon; the
demonic deviations from the straight Divine Path will be corrected.
Dharma will be revived and re-vitalised in every human community.
God incarnates for the revival of Dharma which includes morality,
truth, virtue, love and a host of other qualities that uphold the
communities of man as well as the individual. The other purposes
usually given - serving the devoted, destroying the wicked,
re-establishing the sacred tradition - these are all secondary. For,
he who is righteous will be guarded from harm, by righteousness
itself; he who is unrighteous will fall into disaster through the
evil that he perpetrates. The one task includes all else.
For the protection of the virtuous, for the destruction of
evil-doers and for establishing righteousness on a firm footing, I
incarnate from age to age.
Whenever asanthi, or disharmony, overwhelms the world, the Lord will
incarnate in human form to establish the modes of earning prasanthi,
or peace, and to re-educate the human community in the paths of
My work is ceaseless and so your work, too, is without end. Know
that I am within you and without you. There is no difference. Rid
yourselves of petty matters for ever more. You are now ME and I am
now THEE. There is no difference. My Darshan will pour forth from ME
to and through you. You may be unaware of this constant action. Be
ever pure in heart and soul, and mankind in your lifetime will
benefit from your unique qualities.
This is a great chance. Be confident that you will all be liberated.
Know that you are saved. Many hesitate to believe that things will
improve, that life will be happy for all and full of joy, and that
the golden age will recur. Let me assure you that this dharmaswarupa,
that this divine body, has not come in vain. It will succeed in
averting the crisis that has come upon humanity.
In my present Avatar, I have come armed with the fullness of the
power of formless God to correct mankind, raise human consciousness
and put people back on the right path of truth, righteousness, peace
and love to divinity.
In this Avathar, the wicked will not be destroyed; they will be
corrected and reformed and educated and led back to the path from
which they have strayed.
I have come to give you the key to the treasure of ananda, or bliss,
to teach you how to tap that spring, for you have forgotten the way
to blessedness. If you waste this time of saving yourselves, it is
just your fate. You have come to get from me tinsel and trash, the
petty little cures and promotions, worldly joys and comforts. Very
few of you desire to get from me the thing that I have come to give
you: namely, liberation itself. Even among these few, those who
stick to the path of sadhana, or spiritual practice, and succeed are

I am determined to correct you only after informing you of my
credentials. That is why I am now and then announcing my Nature by
means of miracles, that is, acts which are beyond human capacity and
human understanding. Not that I am anxious to show off my Powers.
The object is do draw you closer to me, to cement your hearts to me.
I ask only that you turn to me when your mind drags you into grief
or pride or envy. Bring me the depths of your mind, no matter how
grotesque, how cruelly ravaged by doubts or disappointments. I know
how to treat them. I will not reject you. I am your mother.
Why fear when I am here? Put all your faith in Me. I shall guide and

Do not bother about what has happened in the past. Get immersed in
the tasks of the present. Render service with a pure and selfless
heart. The delight of the individual gladdens the Divine. Equally
the Divine esteems you. Do everything with the Lord's name on your
lips. Develop all that is good in you and share that goodness with
one and all.

Everything points to the terror of conflagration coming; and my
mission is to preempt the fires by reestablishing dharma and the
spiritual law of one God, one religion, one language [of the heart]
embracing one humanity. ... I want to build one humanity without any
religious, caste or other barriers in a universal empire of love
which could enable my devotees to feel the whole world as their
If God Himself is here to foster Dharma, and you engage yourself in
the same task, then you are worshiping Him. Then you are near and
dear to Him, for you are serving Him, His devotees, and yourself.
My Mission has now reached that point in time when each one of you
now has work to do. This planet has a purpose in the great galaxy in
which it is held. That purpose is now unfolding before your eyes. I
call upon you to radiate the Devotion within you so that its unseen
power will envelop all who come into your orbit. To successfully
perform your part always remain centered upon me.
Allow yourself to impart that purity of heart within you towards all
human beings and all living creatures and do not reach for the
fruits of your work. This part of My Mission is performed in
absolute silence. You are My instruments from whom My love will
pour. Be always aware that the moment you let your ego descend upon
you, My work ceases. When you have overcome your negative
unmindfulness you will again become My source. The multiplication of
My Love will be felt throughout the world. I have drawn you to Me. I
have made great steps in My Mission over these past Incarnations.
Live your Lives by my Examples, live and practise My message,
knowing that some will understand and others will not. Have no
concern with the outcome of your efforts, for some people are ready
and others are not. Each one is free to go his own way in his own
time. Many will choose to remain in darkness with all the
attachments that hold them back from the true path. But, eventually,
their time will come and, one day, all will be re-united in the
Kingdom of God.
Today the seeds are still in the ground, slowly germinating, as the
teachings of the Lord begin to spread throughout the world and
infiltrate the mind of man. Soon those seeds will begin to grow, and
what emerges will brighten the world as the beauty of the absolute
truth begins to reach so many people. It is a process which takes
time and the new Golden Age will evolve gradually.
So you should live in hope.... Let the divinity within shine forth
and become one of the great beacons to light up the world and hasten
the arrival of the new Golden Age. It is there now for some, those
enlightened souls who have already reached the state of God
realisation. It is that awakened state that will lead to the new age
