What is the secret essence of all learning? Bhagawan lovingly reveals to us through the voice of a very young devotee.

 

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Thursday, April 30, 2015

 

 

When Prahlada’s father, Hiranyakasipu drew him near and fondly asked the boy to repeat what he had learnt from his teacher, Prahlada replied, “I learned the secret essence of all learning.” The father was glad and asked him, “Tell me the essential thing that you have mastered.” Prahlada sai...d, “Father! He who illumines everything, He who finally absorbs everything with Himself, is the One, Lord Narayana. Having Him always in mind and experiencing the bliss thereof awards fulfillment to all.” He further said, “Father! You conquered the entire world, but you failed to conquer your senses. How then can you receive grace from Narayana? These material skills and worldly achievements are hollow possessions. The knowledge and experience of the One Divine (Brahma-vidya), that alone is worthy to be pursued,” said the child prodigy.

- Sutra Vahini, Ch 2.

 

Just as air or water assumes the form of the container in which it is kept, God acquires the form in which the devotee worships Him. All forms are His.-BABA

How can we achieve constant communion with the Divine? Why is it necessary? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today.

 

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Wed...nesday, April 29, 2015

 

 

Chant the name of God day in and day out. That alone will protect you at all times. Just as air is all pervasive, God is present in you, with you, around you, below you, above you. Hence, be in constant communion with Divinity. When you develop faith in Divinity, you will naturally have unity. Consequently, there will be no scope for enmity. You need not perform any rituals in order to win the grace of God. It is enough if you do namasmarana (chant the Divine Name) from the depth of your heart. Hari Bhajana bina sukha shanti nahi… (You cannot attain peace and happiness without singing the glory of God). If you incessantly chant the divine name ‘Rama’, no harm can ever befall you. Do not fritter away this opportunity but put it to the best use. Remember that God is always with you wherever you are.

- Divine Discourse, 21 July 2005.

 

Keep the name of the Lord always radiant on your tongue and mind, which will keep the antics of the mind under control. - BABA.

Massive Shram dhan in Village Shilandarwadi
 

Om Sri Sairam

Its Action time.
Villages in India are screaming for help.
Water scarcity is hitting hard.
All agencies in social space are struggling...
to cope with the gigantic demand,
haunted by Last-mile-least-presence syndrome.
The real execution of any project
happens only in the last mile.

In the life cycle of any Seva Project
after Identifying- Networking-Cheque writing- it is 'Effective Execution onsite'.
Thats where many social projects fail.
It calls for stretching beyond the call of duty
by a committed few Feet-on-street.
To stay put and execute. Facing all odds.

Realising this, we conciously moved away
from 'meeting-sheeting', 'Power pointing'
and dishing out knowledge bytes coloured with a heavy tinge of Urban elitism with nose up in air.
Such traits don't deliver. We tell our team to
just roll up and reach out. Onsite.
And silently work hard in last mile to deliver.

Like, we chose the village Shilander wadi
near Badlapur , just three months ago.
All wells dry. Old 800 ft borewell threw up trickle of water.
Daily struggle for womenfolk to fetch water from far off.
The new toilets built by Govt remained unused.
The villagers pleaded with us to do something for water.

Couldn't get a single shot showing men carrying water anywhere...!!

 

Multi-tasking mother juggling pots with 'tag-along??' kid in Shilandarwadi ..

Couldn't get a single shot showing men carrying water anywhere...!!

We took experts and got the survey done.
We are against borewells that
push the water table further down.
But in favour of recharging them with rainwater.

Identified a spot to fix a new borewell that
could be recharged with abundant rainwater
flowing downhill when it rains.
Village Panchayat called and got assurance
that they would unitedly do Shram dhan.

 

Village Panchayat with our team discussing Shram dhan..

Small earthern check dams tobe built
along the stream to stagnate rainwater
and internalise for percolation near the borewell to recharge it with proven scientific models.

All Prayed. And we started the first phase.
Just a month ago, during midnight all villagers gathered to witness new source of water as the drilling was on.
Prayers went up. Blessings came down.
At 420 ft, there was a sudden burst of wet soil.
And abundant water flew up. (later water tested in lab n found OK)
All Screamed. Danced in joy. Till the early morning there was so much of fun and frolic on sighting water.
For a small sum spent on this endeavour,
there was so much of 'smile-harvest'.

Now time for second phase to build structures to harvest rain water and put in more than the water drawn out so that there is net surplus.

 

They say at last Sairam wale came ...So did water..

 

 

Lord's blessings in liquid form..


The date fixed for this Shram dhan(voluntary labour) by 200+ villagers
is Sat, May 2, 2015 to build rainwater harvesting structures including small check dams -
Maathi Bhandara and Vanrai bhandaras
recharge pits etc.along the stream
near the borewell for recharge.

Our team would include Investment bankers IIT alumnus Engr, tax consultants,other Professionals delinked from the mainstream for a day to lend a hand to the poor villagers
by being part of their massive Shram dhan..
Rudrabhishekam on site for spiritual vibes
followed by Narayan Seva to feed all.

Mark your diary. Sat, May 2, 2015
No money. Just donate your labour- Shram dhan.
With the 200+ fired only by hope.
Just Love. Rest happens.

Jai Sairam

Letter from Chairman, Prasanthi Council - Narendranath Reddy, M.D

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

 

Om Sri Sai Ram.

 

A major earthquake, of magnitude 7.8 on the Richter scale, struck Nepal at 11:56 AM on 25th April 2015. CNN has reported that over 1,800 people have lost their lives, at the last count, and there is widespread damage in the densely populated capital city, Kathmandu.

...

The SSIO Disaster Relief Committee is coordinating efforts with the local and international Sathya Sai organization leaders and volunteers. We are assessing the situation, and we will let you know soon how best to serve our brothers and sisters in Nepal through the contribution of your time, talents, and resources.
 

Kindly forward this email and the attached letter to all the members of Sathya Sai Centers, Groups, and Institutes.
 

Let us all pray together to Swami to shower His divine blessings on all those afflicted by the ravages of this natural disaster.

 

Jai Sai Ram.
 

Lovingly in the Service of Sai,
Narendranath Reddy, M.D.
Chairman, Prasanthi Council

 


 

What is the one truth in which if we are established, we can break the shackles of action and reaction? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

 

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Tuesday, April 28, 2015

 

 

If the world is real, it must be cognized even during the stage of dreamless deep sleep, but we are not conscious of the world during sleep. Hence, the visible world is as unreal as the dream world. The Universe is a reflection of the Divine (Brahman). The sky might ...be reflected in a pot of toddy but that does not defile it. Similarly, in this vehicle called body, the Atma dwells pure and undefiled. The fruits of action, good or bad, adhere to the vehicle and not to the indweller. When such wisdom dawns, the dark shadows of the three types of Karma flee before it (The three being Sanchita - the entire accumulated Karma; Prarabdha - the Karma whose effects we undergo in the present and Aagami - the Karma we perform now whose results will be felt in the future). The suffering and travails of this world are illusory and transitory. Fix your mind firmly on this great fact and set out bravely on the path of spiritual practice, the practice of devotion.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 25.

 

Knowledge that is not put into practice is like food that is not digested. - BABA.

What is the importance of scriptures? What is the key message we must practice from the scriptures? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

 

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Sunday, April 26, 2015

 

 

People yield to delusion and become one with the darkness caused by false values and attachment to the unreal, the ‘me’ and ‘mine’.

 

But the scripture (Shastra) is like a mother; she does not give up. She persists and pursues; she reminds you of your goal so that you will ...be saved. The scriptures are to be considered as the cause of the awareness of the incomprehensible, immeasurable and inexpressible Brahman. The scriptures are numberless, and a lifetime is too short. Aspirants are plenty; doubts and hesitations are numerous; steadfastness is meager. As a result, no one can claim full mastery. But you need not drink the entire ocean to know its taste; one drop is enough. Similarly, it is impossible to understand all the contents of the scriptures. But it is enough to grasp the important lesson that it teaches and put it into practice. The lesson is: constant remembrance of the Divine.

- Sutra Vahini Ch 2.

 

To experience the proximity of the Divine the easiest path is to remember constantly the name of the Lord.-BABA

If God is formless, what is the rationale behind worshipping an image or idol as God? Bhagawan, our loving Master, clearly explains to us today.

 

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, Saturday, April 25, 2015

 

 

Many people slander image worship, but its basis is really one’s capacity to see the macrocosm in the microcosm. The value of image worship is testified by experience; it doesn’t depend on one’s imaginative faculty. What is found in the form of the Lord (Virat-swarupa) is also found, undiminished and unalloyed, in the image form (Swarupa). Images serve the same purpose as metaphors and similes in poetry. They illustrate, amplify, and clarify. Joy comes not through the shape of things but through the relationship established. Not any child but her child makes the mother happy. So it is with each one and all things! With each and every thing in the universe, if one establishes that kinship, that Godly love (Iswara prema), then truly an overpowering joy can be experienced! Only those who have felt it can understand.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 20.

 

If you wish to experience oneness, you must see the cosmos through the glass of ekatma-bhava (spiritual unity).-BABA
