on the path of human values or on the path of an

not an animal.” Train your mind saying, “Oh mind,
human beings are not meant to eat, sleep and enjoy
pleasures. Shed all animal qualities, give up
previous habits and old ways. You must get away from
all evil”. If you thus teach your mind, its speed
will be lessened and the flow of thoughts will
change. You must consistently teach your mind to
transform your thoughts. There will be difficulties
in the process. But let them come – the one who
works hard and passes through these hardships will
enjoy abundant peace. Without effort, there cannot
be gain or pleasure. Hence don’t worry about

STATE OF SWAMI'S ASHRAM AND A PRAISE FOR THE TRUST:
Sharing with you all, the three page write up from the latest edition of INDIA TODAY magazine, on Swami's ashram and the curr...ent initiatives taken up by Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust. INDIA TODAY is a leading Magazine in India. It is so good to see that this magazine is seeing the "real" mission of Swami unlike their faulty story on Swami which was released during Swami's 75th Birthday which really hurt the sentiments of devotees and also non-devotees to a great extent.

Sri. Chandrababu Naidu to visit Puttaparthi on 24th July 2014
Om Sairam dearest Sai family
Ever since the recently
concuded general elections and after the BJP government
came into power, Puttaparthi is witnessing a "high
profile VVIP visit for the first time" in the form of
Sri. Nara Chandra Babu Naidu, the present chief minister
of Andhra Pradesh and also an ardent devotee of Bhagawan
Baba and Lord Venkateswara of Tirupathi on July 24th
The helicopter of the Chief Minister will arrive at 10am in Swami's airport.
At 10:25am he will
reach Sai Kulwanth hall and offer prayers to Swami at
NO TRACE OF RAIN:
In this photo Sri.Narachandra Babu Naidu is seen with Swami during the Sri Sathya Sai Unity cup held in the Hill view stadium. Seen to Swami's right is Mr.Sunil Gavaskar, the living legend of Indian cricket and to Swami's left (with the white beard) is the late Prime minister of India Sri.I.K.Gujral
He also attended in one of the convocations along with the then minister Sri.Murali Manohar Joshi. Below is the picture taken during that occasion.
PRAY TO MOTHER ESWARAMMA FOR QUICK RESPONSE:
During my morning walk, i bumped into this coconut vendor, standing infront of Smt.Eswaramma School, after removing his shoes i saw him offering prayers to Mother Eswaramma statue (not seen in the picture) to bless him with a good business that day. I was curious and went up to him and asked whom was he praying to. With no hesitation he said to Mother E...swaramma. I asked why not Lord Ganesha or Swami, why Her? With a smile on his face and probably understanding my "confusion" he said you also practice my "technique". I said what technique? If you pray to Mother Eswaramma she will go and "refer" our name to Swami and Swami will never say NO to His mother and our prayers will be answered very quickly.. I really liked the innocence and profound devotion in this man.. This man, even after selling all the coconuts in his cart may make a mere 200 rupees or so but he seemed to be very content which is absolutely His grace and nothing else...
One can "never" win God's grace by dropping bundles of currency notes into the donation boxes of temples nor by paying thousands to the priests/astrologers to do some prayer or ritual on their behalf.
Swami will be more than happy to help to those whose prayers that come from heart with no trace of "I" ness..

Why do we
sometimes fight? Who or what is responsible for it? What
should we do about it? Bhagawan sweetly and
lovingly explains to us today.
Even animals react based on your
feelings. As is the feeling so is the reaction. Every
being goes by these three: reaction, reflection and
resound. It is only the evil tendencies, the bad
feelings amongst human beings which cause wild reaction
from animals. Two sons born in the same family
constantly fight. What is the reason for hatred? Their
own minds are responsible for their temperament. Never
have bad temperament. You must always cultivate and
develop noble feelings. All of you have good upbringing,
good family and good education. You must upkeep the
name, honour and reputation of your family and the
University you studied. To earn a good name, you must
have good friendship. “Tell me who your friends are, I
shall tell you who you are” is a famous quote. As is the
company, so you are. Therefore always seek and keep good
company – it is your good fortune to have and be in good

What is the basis of all creation? Why and when do sages and Avatars descend on earth?
Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Tuesday, July 22, 2014
God alone possesses the strength to create anything and everything, both permanent and impermanent. God is all knowing and omnipresent. He created this world with His Divine Will (Sankalpa). God is the basis of all creation. Gold is the basis of jewellery; if there is no gold, then there is no jewel. Clay is the basis of the pot; if there is no clay, then there is no creation. Similarly, if there is no God, then there is no creation. God is omnipresent, omnipotent and omnipresent. Everything around us is Divine. People, in their ignorance, forget this Divine Principle (Atma). In order to jostle human beings from their deep slumber of ignorance and greed, great sages and Divine Incarnations descend on earth. Whenever ego and pride becomes second nature of human beings and ignorance reigns supreme, moreover when demonic nature of human beings are at peak, Divine Incarnations (Avatars) descend on earth to restore righteousness to its pristine glory.
- My Dear Students, Vol 5, Ch 1, Dec 25, 1980.
God's love descends equally on all people. A fragrant flower retains its fragrance whether you hold in the right hand or the left.-BABA.

gently reminds us today.
is very interested about their future. What is fut...ure?
It is based on the past. Don’t brood over the past and
don’t worry about the future. Past is past. What is the
use in thinking about it or worrying about something
that is dead and gone? Just forget it! Present is very
important. Live in the moment and follow the present.
Often many think of the past or of the future and ruin
the present. Many times you feel you were happy in the
past and are unhappy now. To what extent were you happy
then? Has your attitude changed since the past? Has the
dirtiness in your mind been cleansed? Believe that you
are happy now; you have sufficiency in everything. Your
mind is right now blessed. You must always “Help Ever
and Hurt Never”. Bhagawan wants you to appreciate the
importance of the “present” and work for your progress,
living in the present, living in the moment.

What is the most significant
period in one’s life? What should we focus on during our
entire life? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us
the cultivation season is the most important time for
the farmer, the youth is the most important time in the
life of a student. The farmer waits for the opportune
moment to sow his seeds so that he can reap rich
harvest. Time is a very critical...
element for the success of the crop. During the
cultivation season, the farmer does not care about food,
water or sleep, and works hard with his entire focus on
achieving a good harvest. He believes that a good crop
is the only source of all happiness. So too, for the
student (Vidhyarthi), the period of their education is
like the cultivation season. It is the most important
time and is the very basis of their lives. They must
dedicate all their time, without worrying even about
hunger, thirst and sleep, or loss and gain and must only
focus on building their good character and gaining full
and complete knowledge.

more significant than that. Lord Krishna declared clearly in
the Bhagavad Gita that you are the embodiment of the Lord. Do
not limit yourself as a mere human being. Let anyone call you
by any name. The real truth is, the Self-same Lord is present
in you and in everyone. God dwells everywhere (Ishavasyam Idam
Sarvam) and in everyone. Hence remember! You do not merely
represent the name that you are given, but are truly Divine -
“I am I” is your real name! God dwells in all of you (Ishwarah
Sarva Bhoothanam). Hence practice the principle, “All are One,
Be alike to everyone.”

God descends for
the people and among the people with love, compassion and
affection, and mixes with the Individual Consciousness (Jeeva
Prajna) so that Divine Consciousness (Deva Prajna) may be
attained. Such rare opportunities are bestowed upon
individuals as a result of the good deeds of past...
several lives. A Guru is truly like God. Guru teaches in order
to build the character of the devotee, so he or she can have a
good future. A good devotee/student is he or she, who has
utmost devotion towards their Guru and surrenders at their
Master’s feet. Arjuna personified an ideal devotee who
surrendered completely to his Master, Lord and Guru, Sri
Krishna. Arjuna said to Krishna, “I will do whatever You tell
me to do”. This is a classic act, an example of complete
surrender to God. Students today must follow Arjuna as their
role model and achieve complete surrender of their lives to
service and betterment of the society.

heartening that the Government of India is now recognising
some of the achievements of Sathya Sai school. Some good
news to share:
Learn to see the Unseen Force that is driving this body itself.”
Once in an
interview given to a student, everything happened the same
way, except for one. After closing the door behind, instead
of asking 'emi samacharam (what’s the news?), Swami
thundered: “How long will you go behind this body of Mine?...
How long will you cage Me in this physical body? Learn to
see the Unseen Force that is driving this body itself.”
What is the best way to escape from the
cycle of birth and death? Bhagawan lovingly explains to
Just as all
rivers merge in the ocean, all branches of education end in
spiritual education. You must experience that kind of totality
and merge with Divinity. Traditions and truths are being
separated into various groups and the vicious syndrome of
dislike for one person towards the...
other has come into existence. However, not just in the past,
even in the present, there are quite a few people who conduct
themselves as per the traditional rules and guidelines with
purity to attain the ultimate goal in life. The means to
liberation, in Krita Yuga was Meditation (Dhyanam), in Tretha
Yuga was performing ritualistic worship (Yagna), in Dwapara
Yuga it was worship (Archana), and in the present Kali Yuga,
it is chanting the Name of the Lord (Namasmarana). Any or all
of these methods, when followed with utmost sincerity and
devotion, will help one achieve the ultimate goal of life
which is Liberation (Moksha).
RADIO SAI'S THURSDAY LIVE - JULY 17, 2014
Dear brothers and
Radio Sai ~ God's own Radio Station
With the Divine
Blessings of Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Radio Sai went on air
for the first time on November 23, 2001. It was inaugurated by
Bhagawan Baba as a channel of the World Space Satellite Radio
service. Radio Sai has over the years grown into an Internet
Radio streaming service offering six different, 24/7 streams -
Asia, Afri, Ameri, Telugu, Discour...se
and Bhajan Stream.
Prasanthi Diary: Chronicles of heaven
on Earth - Thousands thronged to the holy hamlet of Puttaparthi
to be with their dear Guru on the occasion of Guru Poornima
(2008). Sai Kulwant Hall ...was
brimming with people everywhere. The students from all the
campuses too had arrived and what greater good fortune for a
student than being with their Guru on this occasion.
What is the ‘Buy 1 Get 3’ free policy
offered by the Divine Lord? Bhagawan sweetly
explains to us today.
Many of you do
not consider the sacred values of Sathya, Dharma, Shanthi,
Prema and Ahimsa as inner current that are present within you.
In fact, they form the basic foundation of human life. Without
the basic fundamentals, the more knowledge you acquire, the
greater and longer you c...ontinue
to be a fool, if you do not invest effort to realize your true
nature. Truth is present and latent within everyone. It is a
precious gift from God. Whether you recognize these facts or
not, and even if you consider them as irrelevant, these facts
remain. Hence now onwards, you must install Truth deeply in
your heart. Love is the natural fruit of developing Truth. If
you grow in truthfulness, then as a result, Love blossoms from
within. Along with Sathya and Prema, comes Ahimsa. Truth
sustains Ahimsa or Non-Violence. You will find that the value
of Non-violence is often absent, in every person, wherever and
whenever Love is absent.
