What is the real secret to experiencing happiness? Bhagawan lovingly teaches us today.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Sunday, August 31, 2014

 


No one will like the one who is conceited and egotistic. Even your spouse and your own children, though they may appear to respect you externally, will not be happy with you, when you are an arrogant person. Not just that, as long as you are filled with ego, it is highly unlikely that you will really be happy. Therefore at the very outset, you should get rid of your ego (ahamkara). So too, when you are filled with anger, you cannot experience joy; you are bound to be miserable. Only when you subdue anger you will be able to experience happiness. Similarly, when you are filled with insatiable desires, you will not really feel wealthy. The moment you give up desires, all riches will come to you. If you stay greedy, you will be a stranger to happiness. Give up greed, and you will feel endowed with all riches.

- Divine Discourse, August 25, 1998.

I – want – peace. ‘I’ is ego, ‘want’ is desire. Remove ego and desire and you have peace.-BABA.

You must close your mouth more often and open your hearts. That is the surest way to experience divine bliss.-BABA

DIVINE DISCOURSE : SATHYA SAI RISES TO SPEAK ON SUBHASH CHANDRA BOSE - AUG 15, 2007

 


Swami spoke non stop for 25 minutes, without pause or hesitation. It was spontaneity and absolute free flow. There was a passion in His voice – a passion
...that in itself was enough to shame most of us into a physical and mental silence at the total lack of Love for our country. It is not a cliche that we say Swami is Perfection. If anyone had a question, “What is patriotism?” he/she should have seen Swami thundering. It is a very frank and honest confession that no amount of explanation or writing will ever do justice to even a fraction of the feelings and thoughts that Swami aroused as He spoke that evening. Given below is a brief transcription of the Discourse.

"One sees the name written over all the speakers here (ie audio speakers made by the company Bose) – Bose but not a mention of his name has been made today. People keep saying that He died in an accident. That is wrong. He never met with any accident. He was the greatest. He authored a book, “My India” and that was later translated into English. He was married and his daughter was Lalita Bose. She in fact came to Parthi and followed Swami everywhere, whether it was Ooty, Kodaikanal or Madurai. She always kept Swami’s name on her lips and sang bhajans and songs. She often lamented, “My father was a patriotic Indian. I am so proud of Bharat; but today the unity has been shattered, there is no unity among people.” Lalita approached her father and sought permission, “I wish to go to Puttaparthi. My Swami is there.” She came to Parthi and then even to Whitefield.

Bose was very strong and powerful, in body, mind and in spiritual splendour. He always desired that India must be foremost, pure and grand. There is none equal to him in wanting the progress of the nation. Other prominent leaders at that time were actually jealous of him and they did everything to keep him away. They say that he died in an accident. At that time he was actually in a steamer. There still exist such people in Bharat but the pity is that they all just keep speaking and refrain from action.

Swami rises to speak on Bose.

No one acts. Everyone delivers speeches. I feel a stabbing pain that there is not a single Bose today. Tell me is there any one? One Bose is enough. Bose truly understood the plight of India. (At this point Swami was very emotional. One wondered at Swami’s passion. Oh! If we feel that way! Just once at least……) Swatantra (freedom) as it is called does not relate to the body or the mind. It is in reality Swaatantra where Swaa means the Atma or Self. When you follow the Atma, there is nothing else left to be achieved. There is no use of just rejoicing on this day without even realizing the meaning of Swaatantra. Bose knew what it meant. The patriotic fervour that he displayed is worthy of emulation. Without the patriotic spirit one is more dead than alive. It was only Bose who fought for Swaatantra. All others had selfish agendas. They were the ones who divided people. Swaatantra makes you realize that the country is ONE because ALL ARE ONE. ‘Mamaivamsho Jeeva Loke Jeeva Bhoota Sanatanaha’ – that is what Krishna says.

Today people eat, drink and make merry. There are so many ‘rich’ people. But they are unable to give a handful to a beggar. These rich people are actually living in abject poverty. You keep saying brothers and sisters, but none keeps that relationship. No one here is as great as Bose. Bose too had met me. He came up to Bukkapatnam and was unable to come to Parthi. I went myself to Bukkapatnam. When He saw me, he held Me and cried, “You are doing so much at such a young age itself. You are working for the emancipation of mankind itself.” He had so much pure feelings.

The country is as great as one’s Mother. It is a land of Kshama (forbearance). Today all try to earn more and more money. But not a single one strives to earn Prema.

Swaarajya is related to Swaa – Atma not swaartha – selfishness.

All those who spoke, spoke only of the world. None speaks of the Atma. Swaa is mistaken for Swaartha (selfishness). Swaa is Swaatantra. Love all, Serve all and help everyone. The Atma is unchangeable. Have Atma Vishwaasam (Self Confidence).

None of you asked me to speak. It was my love for Bose that made me speak so. Such people must be born again in Bharat. Never forget Bose. Even on the speakers his name is there. Sarojini Naidu (The Nightingale of India) was another great soul. They are all being forgotten. Such glorious personalities are not to be forgotten.

As Swami sat down concluding His Discourse, His voice had become hoarse with what we humans would call as emotion. The first thing He said to the boy next to Him was, “My voice became hoarse. Do you think all would have heard what I said?”

Bhagawan often refers to the language of the heart. What is this and how do we make use of it? Bhagawan Himself explains to us today.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Saturday, August 30, 2014

 


In a large gathering, people speak many languages. Each person understands only their language, and wants that they should be spoken to in that language. But there is a language of the heart, which all can understand and all would like to hear. That is the language which I speak, the language that goes from My heart to yours. When heart speaks to heart, it is love that is transmitted without any reservation. Trials, turmoil and thrills - these are constant for all of mankind. The responsive heart listens to these with sympathy and answers with love. Everyone is eager to be happy; everyone wants to work less and gain more, give little and get amply, but no one experiments with the other method, that is, wanting less and giving more. Every want is a shackle that hinders movement, and is a drag on the foot. Reduce wants; live simply, that is the way to happiness.

- Divine Discourse, 15 May 1969.

You must close your mouth more often and open your hearts. That is the surest way to experience divine bliss.-BABA

What is the significance of worshipping Vinayaka? Bhagawan our loving God, explains to us today and motivates us to get better.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Friday, August 29, 2014
 

 

What does the term Ganapathi signify? Ga means intellect (Buddhi). Na means Wisdom (Vijnaana). Ganapathi means the Lord of the intellect and of wisdom. He is also the Lord of all Ganas (spiritual entities). Ganas also symbolise the senses. Ganapathi is thus the Lord of the senses. Hence on this Ganapathi festival, you must purify your mind and offer it to Him. It is only when one is pure that intelligence blossoms. It is only with the blossoming of intelligence that Siddhi (the spiritual goal) is attained. Vinayaka presides over Buddhi and Siddhi (the intellect and spiritual realisation). Siddhi signifies the realisation of Wisdom. That is why the scriptures say that Siddhi and Buddhi are the consorts of Vinayaka, and Kshema (well being) and Ananda (bliss) are His two sons.

“Vinayaka is the master of every kind of knowledge. Learning is related to the intellect (buddhi). It is not mere scholarship. Familiarity with books is not knowledge. One's entire life is a continuous process of learning. Any process of inquiry is related to learning. But basically our inquiry should be concerned with finding out what is transient and what is permanent. This is true knowledge.” – Baba (Sanathana Sarathi, October 1995)

Feel free to make it your facebook timeline cover photo and celebrate this auspicious festival with us. Let us pray to Lord Vinayaka to bestow wisdom and knowledge upon all. Let this Vinayaka Chaturthi will bring Morality, Honesty, Spirituality in our daily life and may Sai Ganesha removes all the obstacles in the Spiritual Journey of our life. Ganapati Bappa Morya!!

GRAND GANAPATI UTSAV

 

 

A special Radiosai facebook timeline cover for the grand occasion of Vinayak Chaturthi.

Vinayak Chaturthi is celebrated on the Chaturthi i.e. the fourth day of Indian lunar month of Bhadrapada. It usually falls in the... month of September in the English calendar. Lord Ganesha, the elephant-headed God is usually worshiped before commencing any activity in order to remove obstacles and ensure success of the Endeavour. He is also the bestowed of worldly intelligence and spiritual wisdom.

On this auspicious occasion we should know the Significance of the form of Lord Ganesha.

Ganesha's head symbolizes the Atman or the soul, which is the ultimate supreme reality of human existence, and his human body signifies Maya or the earthly existence of human beings. The elephant head denotes wisdom and its trunk represents Om, the sound symbol of cosmic reality. In his upper right hand Ganesha holds a goad, which helps him propel mankind forward on the eternal path and remove obstacles from the way. The noose in Ganesha's left hand is a gentle implement to capture all difficulties.

The broken tusk that Ganesha holds like a pen in his lower right hand is a symbol of sacrifice, which he broke for writing the Mahabharata. The rosary in his other hand suggests that the pursuit of knowledge should be continuous. The laddoo (sweet) he holds in his trunk indicates that one must discover the sweetness of the Atman. His fan-like ears convey that he is all ears to our petition and he is humble enough to ride the lowest of creatures, a mouse.

Let’s go through some excepts from Swami’s Divine Discourses where He has told about Vinayaka:

"Thursday Divine Darshan" - Short darshan Video Clip every Thursday - Darshan - 08

When the compassionate Lord chose to move amidst us... even as He glided past us and before us, He silently slipped into our hearts too! The eyes that were intoxicated with the beauty of His Darshan and never satiated, unknowingly then, turned within in search of that divine glimpse. Isn't that how He purified us, isn't that how He made us seekers? That was the magic of our Sai's Darshan!

Looking at Swami we wondered, was He more gracious or more graceful... nay He is verily grace itself - when He walks, when He talks, when He scolds, or when he gathers His robe's folds, when he smiles and beckons or in disappointment frowns... Seeing His grace our hearts gaped, 'How could one be so very graceful?' He could be, because He was as gracious as He was graceful, and to shower His grace was the very purpose of His presence. Darshan was that special moment when He allowed us to witness His gracefulness and graciousness.

What causes the descent of a human nature to that of an animal? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us so that we may introspect and make amends.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Thursday, August 28, 2014
 


The stream of life is marked by different stages - in each stage you fall a prey to vices like egoism, jealousy and falsehood instead of cultivating truth, righteousness and humility. During your childhood, you lead an innocent life without being aware of the distinction between the worldly and sacred paths (Preyo and Sreyo Marga). But as age advances, you take to the worldly path, rather than to the sublime path. Plunging into the river of desire, tossed by the waves of delusion, getting immersed in the waters of family life, and submerged by peacelessness and strife, you are swallowed by the whale of discontentment. To turn human life from this mundane existence towards the Divine it is essential to have association with Truth, Sath sangam. Sath refers to that which remains the same regardless of time, place or circumstance. One should associate oneself with this Truth. Merging the consciousness with this Truth you should experience the bliss of such association.

- Divine Discourse, 31 Aug 1992.

Read full discourse here: http://www.sssbpt.info/ssspeaks/volume25/sss25-27.pdf

Body attachment gives rise to ego in an individual. Success eludes one who is egoistic. True humanness is being egoless. – BABA.

Today in Dharmakshetra - New life for Drop outs..

 

 

The views expressed in it are personal
 


Om Sri Sairam

It is no brainer to figure out
why the Newspapers carry only
stories on Sex n Violence all the time.
 

No point blaming them.
 

What-you-see-is-what-you-get.
 

Look around.
There seems tobe an undeclared war.
 

Everyone looks exhausted fighting it on all fronts.
 

They even changed the Govt.
 

But Modi kya kya Karega.
 

He can only try all the tools in the box.
 

Using Technology, Market, intelligentia etc etc
 

to restore some semblance of order in society.
 

But when you empower the society with Technology,
 

the criminals get empowered first.
 

And use it against the society.
 

See how the underworld is more tech savvy
than the dedicated NGOs in Redeeming business.
 

Many don't even have a Smart phone in their jholas
while their counter parts in underworld use Sat-phones.
 

The cell phones must have first landed in cells.

Ok. Can the Market forces bring about the change.
 

Market is the damager no.2 after the Crime world.
 

They are out to foist on society all rubbish
and succeed in making you buy stuff you dont need.
 

May be many in 'Market' are Para-criminals (like Para medicals)
 

See their alluring Ads and real product attributes
 

not having any co-relation and yet hyped about.

 

And the Intelligentia is engaged in accumulating
 

wealth through knowledge and dont care two hoots
 

for welfare of society at large.
 

Articulate Street Smart Bandits in disguise..

 

The list can go on..
Modi kya kya karega.

 

That leaves us to pin our hope only on
the likes of Spiritual organisations
 

whose CoG ( Centre of Gravity) has God
 

and welfare of all in their Agenda.
 

If they don't pitch in and perform,
even God cannot save.

 

But many able and spiritually inclined don't venture
beyond bhajans and spiritual events in their bylanes.
 

(Some active ones are still mired in Samithi politics)
 

The Upper world can only send Avatars and guide.
 

When we fail to transform,the underworld wins hands down..
 

Look how they are more disciplined and focussed in crime.
With a high degree of success...
 

So sad that we seem tobe no match to their acumen,
 

agility and dedication to the task assigned.

 

A call for Nagar Sankirtan evokes poor response.
 

While they execute a Supari with professional finesse.
 

With just two guys in a two wheeler who
precisely shoot and scoot....
 

(If only they U turn and come along...)
Dedication is the differentiator.


 

In a way a reformed terrorist may have
more constructive potential,
if there is a directional change,than a dumbo spiritualist
 

refusing to transform despite Avatar's clarion calls.
 

May be thats why the reformed dacoit Ratnakar alias Valmiki
 

was assigned the sacred task of writing Ramayana
though many spiritual giants were around at that time.

 

We lack the killer instinct. Which is common
 

for any task that needs tobe accomplished.
 

Upper world or Under world.

 

Time to take charge. And plunge head on.
 

The time is now. Each one needs to do his/her bit
for restoring order in the society around.
With hi-power actions.
 

The Spiritual Ones have a bigger responsibility.
 

Namasmarana (and its spiritual allies) 
is the beginning . Not the end.
 

Worship is not work. It is the other way round.

 

Butterflies in stomach.
Modi kya kya karega.

 

Can we figure out one major resource supply
 

for the evil world and cut it off ...
 

Yes. The crime world in any form
 

is thriving because of its manpower
Which in turn is flowing from a big reservoir
 

of drop outs in villages/city slums who are
 

shunned by mainstream and become ready candidates
 

for the Mao and crime outfits out to destroy society.
 

If we give a meaningful life to the Dropouts
they may become constructive workforce.


 

We need to take some concrete steps on ground to
experiment and scale up fast to redeem the drop outs.
And bring them to mainstream. Time is running out.

 

We rolled up the sleeves and plunged head on. Five months ago.
 

Tied up with a private agency in Karjat,approved by Govt
for Vocational training in Welding,AC mechanics and Electrician courses.
 

Involved our Sai Samithis in interior Maharashtra
and sourced more than 100 such dropouts.
 

Of which 54 are now in Vocational Training.
 

And more in the queue. The process is on already.
 

It is a challenging supply chain. But what is easy in life.

​Our 54 drop out boys being trained in Karjat for a new life....

 

The first Pass out Parade of 18 trained Welders is
 

happening today evening. At Dharmakshetra Mumbai.

Another name for Vinayaka is Vigneshwara. Eashwara is one who is endowed with every conceivable form of wealth - riches, knowledge, health, bliss, beauty, etc. Vigneshwara is the promoter of all these forms of wealth and removes all obstacles to their enjoyment. He confers all these forms of wealth on those who worship him. Vinayaka is described as "the deity who should be worshipped first (prathama vandita)". Since everyone in the world desires wealth and prosperity, everyone offers the first place for worship to Vigneshwara.” - Baba

PRASANTHI DIARY 2007 : Independence Day celebrations at Prasanthi Nilayam August 15, 2007

15th August Independence Day Celebrations: Three Eminent Speakers; A Divine Discourse by Bhagavan; Drama by Bengal Youth"Ab tumhare Hawale watan Saat...hiyo."

http://media.radiosai.org/journals/Vol_05/01SEP07/11-prasanthi-diary.htm#india

Swami arrived for the afternoon session on the Independence Day of India at about 3:55pm. He went around for the darshan round scanning the stage that had been set for a drama (Pun intended!). He first went into the interview room. After a while, the vice chancellor came out and announced the evening programme. There would be three speakers – Prof. G. Venkataraman, Sri S.V.Giri and Sri V.Srinivasan. Their talks would be followed by a music programme and the final event would be a drama by the Sai Youth from the state of West Bengal. Swami arrived as the speeches began. The elderly and learned speakers spoke on the significance of Swaaraajya (rule by the higher Self) and 'In'dependence (meaning being dependent on the ‘indweller’). They exhorted the important role the youth had to play in ensuring the arrival of Sai-Rajya in India and then in the world. Each spoke short and crisp and by 5:00pm the speeches had concluded.

As the speakers concluded their speeches, Swami asked for the singers. The music group was just assembling when Swami suddenly motioned for His mike and the discourse table. This was a bolt from the blue (a bolt from The Orange actually!). None had been prepared for this and even the translator was a little surprised. Quickly grabbing the most easily accessible pen and a scratch pad he went to Swami. Swami sat waiting for the discourse table to arrive. The music group was ready with songs and the Bengal youth were ready with their drama. But are we ready for Swami's drama when He decides to stage it? The simple Truth of Swami's dramas is that in them, we are not reduced to mere spectators but transformed into active participants. How willing we are is entirely up to us.

The table and mike arrived and Swami rose to speak. And what a discourse it was! Ganga Pravaaham or the ceaseless flow of the heavenly Ganges. The translator was converted into a student taking notes as Swami launched into an effortless yet powerful, gushing flow. He gave free vent to His words and His 'emotions'. Swami spoke non stop for 25 minutes, without pause or hesitation. It was spontaneity and absolute free flow. There was a passion in His voice - a passion that in itself was enough to shame most of us into a physical and mental silence at the total lack of Love for our country. It is not a cliche that we say Swami is Perfection. If anyone had a question, "What is patriotism?” he/she should have seen Swami thundering. It is a very frank and honest confession that no amount of explanation or writing will ever do justice to even a fraction of the feelings and thoughts that Swami aroused as He spoke that evening. Given below is a brief transcription of the Discourse.

Swami's Independence Day Discourse

One sees the name written over all the speakers here (ie audio speakers made by the company Bose) - Bose but not a mention of his name has been made today. People keep saying that He died in an accident. That is wrong. He never met with any accident. He was the greatest. He authored a book, "My India" and that was later translated into English. He was married and his daughter was Lalita Bose. She in fact came to Parthi and followed Swami everywhere, whether it was Ooty, Kodaikanal or Madurai. She always kept Swami's name on her lips and sang bhajans and songs. She often lamented, "My father was a patriotic Indian. I am so proud of Bharat; but today the unity has been shattered, there is no unity among people." Lalita approached her father and sought permission, "I wish to go to Puttaparthi. My Swami is there." She came to Parthi and then even to Whitefield.

Bose was very strong and powerful, in body, mind and in spiritual splendour. He always desired that India must be foremost, pure and grand. There is none equal to him in wanting the progress of the nation. Other prominent leaders at that time were actually jealous of him and they did everything to keep him away. They say that he died in an accident. At that time he was actually in a steamer. There still exist such people in Bharat but the pity is that they all just keep speaking and refrain from action.

Swami risis to speak on Bose.

No one acts. Everyone delivers speeches. I feel a stabbing pain that there is not a single Bose today. Tell me is there any one? One Bose is enough. Bose truly understood the plight of India. (At this point Swami was very emotional. One wondered at Swami's passion. Oh! If we feel that way! Just once at least......)
Swatantra (freedom) as it is called does not relate to the body or the mind. It is in reality Swaatantra where Swaa means the Atma or Self. When you follow the Atma, there is nothing else left to be achieved. There is no use of just rejoicing on this day without even realizing the meaning of Swaatantra. Bose knew what it meant. The patriotic fervour that he displayed is worthy of emulation. Without the patriotic spirit one is more dead than alive. It was only Bose who fought for Swaatantra. All others had selfish agendas. They were the ones who divided people. Swaatantra makes you realize that the country is ONE because ALL ARE ONE. 'Mamaivamsho Jeeva Loke Jeeva Bhoota Sanatanaha' - that is what Krishna says.

Today people eat, drink and make merry. There are so many 'rich' people. But they are unable to give a handful to a beggar. These rich people are actually living in abject poverty. You keep saying brothers and sisters, but none keeps that relationship. No one here is as great as Bose. Bose too had met me. He came up to Bukkapatnam and was unable to come to Parthi. I went myself to Bukkapatnam. When He saw me, he held Me and cried, "You are doing so much at such a young age itself. You are working for the emancipation of mankind itself." He had so much pure feelings.

The country is as great as one's Mother. It is a land of Kshama (forbearance). Today all try to earn more and more money. But not a single one strives to earn Prema.

Swaarajya is related to Swaa - Atma not swaartha - selfishness.

All those who spoke, spoke only of the world. None speaks of the Atma. Swaa is mistaken for Swaartha (selfishness). Swaa is Swaatantra. Love all, Serve all and help everyone. The Atma is unchangeable. Have Atma Vishwaasam (Self Confidence).
None of you asked me to speak. It was my love for Bose that made me speak so. Such people must be born again in Bharat. Never forget Bose. Even on the speakers his name is there. Sarojini Naidu (The Nightingale of India) was another great soul. They are all being forgotten. Such glorious personalities are not to be forgotten.

As Swami sat down concluding His Discourse, His voice had become hoarse with what we humans would call as emotion. The first thing He said to the boy next to Him was, "My voice became hoarse. Do you think all would have heard what I said?"

Oh Swami! Today we have technology by our side, we feel like saying. The whole discourse has been recorded and it can be cleaned so that each and every word is heard clearly. No problem. Everyone would definitely have heard or will definitely hear whatever you said. Some words may have been clouded but the message was very clear! In spite of all this, that is really a question to ponder about - "Do you think all would have heard what I said?" Have we heard? Have we heard what He has said over the decades - even when His voice was so sweet and clear?

It was then that Prof. Anil Kumar the translator requested Swami whether he could speak in English for the benefit of the non-Telugu audience. Swami gladly consented and he translated it but not before issuing the disclaimer that no amount of translation could ever match what Swami had spoken. That was really true and anybody who could understand Telugu would know why he said so; anyone who didn't understand Telugu too would know why he said so! For today, one could just feel what Swami was communicating. The language of the Heart is too easy, powerful and universal for anyone not to understand.

After that Swami asked the boys to sing. The music group began with a soulful rendering of Vande Maataram. It sounded so inspiring - that too after Swami's discourse. Every drop of blood coursing through the veins of all assembled must have flowed at a lively pace. Swami was quite emotional and He kept beat for the song. Next there was a patriotic song. As that song gained momentum, the devotees from Bengal who had gathered began to wave the Tricolour in rhythm. It was a superb sight - filled with patriotic fervour and nationalistic feelings. There was another song on Lord Rama. Wanting to make everyone happy, Swami asked them to conclude early. The final song was full of swing and enthusiasm. As the song ended, Swami indicated to the Bengal youth to begin their programme.

....and to the rhythm and visual beauty too.
The final presentation of the evening was by the youth of Bengal - a drama entitled, "Ab tumhare Hawale watan Saathiyo." or 'We now' surrender to You.' The presentation began with the Independence Day celebrations where some members of the youth start a discussion. Suddenly a mysterious being in "fancy dress" arrives. Announcing himself as Time, he tries to make the youth aware of how the eternal values have degenerated in the present age.

To his aid come the heroes of Bharat - Swami Vivekananda, Netaji Subash Chandra Bose, Guruji Rabindranath Tagore and Mahatma Gandhi. Now there was something that happened so coincidentally to the 'scientific' mind and so miraculously for the natural mind. As Bose stepped down to speak, the first statement that issued from his lips was, "Is there nobody who is selfless enough to live for the Motherland?" As he mirrored whatever Swami had said about him in the discourse, one could feel goosebumps tingling the skin. Thereafter, it was seen that Bose seemed to speak the most. The other glorious leaders spoke only once - at most twice. Did these youth prepare the drama after Swami's discourse? That could not be possible for it had been pre-recorded! One had to just admire the skill and intelligence of The Script Writer for the visual reinforcement of the audio wisdom that had been received minutes ago!

"Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached." -Vivekananda

"All that the country needs is people with selflessness." - Bose

"Tread the right path even if you are alone on it." - Tagore

"They alone are people of God who serve the rejected and forlorn." - Gandhi

The whole presentation was interspersed with graceful thematic dances. The messages delivered were mostly in song form and the dance did great good to the message delivery. The music was so beautiful and apt to the feelings and emotions that had to be aroused in each scene. The youth were made aware that only young men and women are capable of restoring the declining human values and they are made to take up this responsibility.

"Strive for that and even if the whole world deserts you, walk the Path alone fearlessly. Arise and awake now and stop not till the goal is achieved", is the message that is given to them. At the end, Time succeeds in motivating them and introduces them to the greatest Hero - our dear Swami. A loud applause rented the hall - so loud that it drowned all the other sounds. Meanwhile, Swami called the youth who were acting and created Vibhuti for all of them.

Some broke down in front of Swami and He so sweetly told them, "Ay! Do not cry....don't cry." Swami was also in a state of supreme happiness. Not that He isn't always, but He does not display it always. Many times we look to God and hope that all the apparent reality is just a drama. It looked like Swami today was looking at us and hoping that this apparent drama is The Reality!

After the drama, Swami called all the actors to sit around His chair for group photos. They all happily obliged. As they settled around Him, He rose up and gave the most charming smile.After the photo session, Swami spoke to all the youth who crowded around Him. They all seemed to be enveloped in a cloud of joy. Swami also gifted them a copy of the group photo that had been taken just moments before. It was 6:30pm when Swami received Aarthi. As He went back into the car too, He raised His right hand in benediction to all.

 


What should we do to ensure the right usage of wealth, youth and knowledge? Bhagawan clearly explains to us today.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Wednesday, August 27, 2014
 

The pride of wealth, manpower and youth seems to be predominant presently. Money is inert, it is lifeless. How can it be strong? Its strength or weakness is the reflection of the mindset of the individual. Wealth and education are like pure water. When water is poured in a bottle of a particular colour, the water appears to be of that colour. In the same way, when wealth is in the hands of a wicked person, it will be used only for evil deeds. Money, if it is in the hands of pure hearted people, will be used for noble deeds. Hence the usage of wealth or knowledge is dependent on the character of the person in whose hands it is. Money is not bad. The intent with which you use money should be for good. Use spirituality to streamline the focus of your mind towards good.

- My Dear Students, Vol 3, Ch 7, July 9 1989.

True sacrifice consists in sharing with others one’s wealth, strength and qualities, which are derived from society. - BABA.

Why is there so much conflict in the name of caste and religion? What can you and I do to get beyond these conflicts? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Tuesday, August 26, 2014
 


Today there is much controversy and conflict that brews amongst all religions. There is nothing wrong with any religion. All religions are here to teach good sense. All religions propose the same Truth; they adore the same One God and the essence of all texts is the same. Hence every being must depend upon their own sanctity and morality, and try to nurture them. Morality is the lamp within every individual. Without this lamp, there will only be darkness around. This is the essence of the chant, “Lead us from untruth to truth, from darkness to light, and from death to immortality (Asathoma Sadgamaya, Tamasoma Jyothirgamaya, Mruthyorma Amrutham Gamaya)”. Sages searched for God and finally declared that they have identified Him and have known Him. Where did they see God? It is within their hearts. They said that they saw the Absolute Being who is beyond all darkness.

- My Dear Students, Vol 2, Ch 16, July 23, 1989.

When the mind is filled with good thoughts, such as truth, love, forbearance and compassion, one’s life is filled with peace and serenity. - BABA.

What is the highest and the most worthiest goal in life? Bhagawan lovingly points out and also explains how to attain it.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Monday, August 25, 2014
 


There are four goals (Purusharthas) in the world that people aspire for. They are Righteousness (Dharma), Wealth (Artha), Desire (Kama) and Liberation (Moksha). Realising God is the worthiest and highest goal in life. When such God is seen, realised and a close relationship is established with Him, the happiness one enjoys then, that state of liberation, that principle of love has been called as devotion of the highest order (Para Bhakthi). This devotion is liberation itself; it is attaining oneness with God. Liberation is the ability to look for unity in diversity, rather than calling out the obvious differences. Attaining Parabhakthi is not easy. It is definitely possible for those who yearn and work towards it. Do not get confused that you are unique and others are different. You will be in doubt if you miss the principle of unity in your daily lives. So long as there is doubt, you cannot realize the eternal truth.

- My Dear Students, Vol 3, Ch 7, July 9 1989.

Devotion to the Divine will give you bliss, prosperity and peace. - BABA.
