Ask Bhagawan Baba, “Are you God?” And He says: “Yes, I am God and so are you. The only difference between you and I is that while I am aware of this fact, you are not.” And this is no casual remark. Indeed, inherent in this small, but extremely significant statement, is the fundamental truth of humanity’s divine nature - its true reality; and revivifying the heart of every human being to this salient truth is the mission and message of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. All who listen to Him, experience His unconditional love, benefit from His caring counsel and witness His supernormal supremacy over mind and matter, get a real glimpse of the glory and majesty of God, and therefore, of the infinity that each human potentially and inherently is.

“Here in the Prashanthi Nilayam, no invitation has ever been printed and distributed on any occasion, asking people to come. No one has been specially requested to take part. It is Love, the invitations of the Heart to the heart, that has brought you in tens of thousands to this place. The validity and value of Love are proved by you; Love is the most potent of My powers.”

- Bhagawan Baba, 22 November 1970.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2015

What is the purpose of worship and what is the process involved? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us in crystal clear terms today.

The attitude of the worshiper and the worshiped is the seed of devotion (bhakthi). First, the worshiper’s mind is attracted by the special qualities of the object of worship. The worshiper tries to acquire these special qualities. This is spiritual discipline (sadhana). In the... early stages of spiritual discipline, the distinction between worshiper and worshiped is full, but as the spiritual discipline progresses, this feeling diminishes and, when attainment is reached, there is no distinction whatsoever. Irrespective of the object of worship one has grasped, loved and sought by spiritual discipline, one should have firm faith that the individual self (jivatma) is the supreme Lord (Paramatma). There is only one wish fit to be entertained by the aspirant: the realisation of the Lord (Iswara Sakshatkara). There is no room in the mind for any other wish.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 39.

The one steady in wisdom stands closest in the company of the Lord. -BABA

RADIOSAI RE SHARING:
A TINY TALE OF CHRISTMAS JOY...
By Ms. Aarthi Krishnan

http://media.radiosai.org/journals/vol_12/01DEC14/A-Tiny-Tale-of-Christmas-Joy-Ms-Aarthi-Krishnan.htm

An engineering graduate, Ms. Aarthi Krishnan is a freelance content editor based in Chennai, India. She is also an active member of Radio Sai Volunteer Team.

"I always worshipped Bhagawan Baba as my personal God at home when I was a child but when I went to school, I had no problem in singing Christian songs and praying to Jesus. That just came from my respect for other religions; that's all. But now I am absolutely convinced that our beloved Bhagawan Baba is ‘The Father’ who sent Jesus Christ to earth and there is absolutely no difference between Him and Christ. All of our prayers and worship reach Him and Him alone, whatever be our religion. He is verily the Cosmic Christ, as mentioned by many Christian devotees who have experienced Bhagawan and His love."

Why should spiritual seekers not postpone or delay their duties? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

Lord of Death (Yama) is as omnipresent as Lord Siva! Yama is associated with the body (deha); He cannot affect the individual soul (jiva). Siva is associated with the individual soul, but He won’t allow the body to subsist for any length of time. The body is the essential vehicle for the individual sou...l to understand its real nature. Still who knows when the body may become the target for the attention of Yama? The individual soul, burdened with this destructible body, must grasp the above-mentioned caution and be all-eager to merge in Siva! No single moment that is passed by can be turned back. People usually delay doing some things; yesterday’s till today and today’s till tomorrow. For the tasks of spiritual discipline, there is no yesterday and no tomorrow. This very moment is the moment! The minute that just elapsed is beyond your grasp; so too, the approaching minute is not yours! Only those who have this understanding engraved in their heart can merge in Siva.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 40.

Reining in your senses is the growing in wisdom. -BABA.

Why is it so important to fill our lives with good deeds and intentions? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today.

The inborn desires and mental impressions (samskaras) make or mar the individual (jivi); they are the steps that take all individual souls to the goal. Samskaras make the individual wade through loss and grief. Only through good mental tendencies you can attain the Lord. So every individual has to... be wholly engaged in good actions (sath-karmas). Good and noble action is authentic worship (puja). It is the best form of remembering the Lord. It is the highest devotional song. It spreads love, without distinction and difference. It is service done as the duty of the individual. Be engaged in such noble actions (karmas). Revel uninterruptedly in the thought of the Lord. This is the royal road to the goal you have to reach.

- Prema Vahini Ch 29.

To secure the grace of God you must adhere to right conduct and observe purity in thought, word and deed. - BABA.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2015

How can we say that whatever happens is God’s doing? Especially when apparently unpleasant events happen in our lives?

Bhagawan exhorts us with His sweet words today. ...
While struggling in the spiritual field, take on the Lord Himself as your protector. To instill courage in the child, the mother persuades it to walk a few steps and turns about, but she will never allow it to fall. If the child falters and is about to lose balance, she hurries from behind and catches it before it falls. The Lord too has His eyes fixed on the individual (jivi). He has in His hand the string of the kite, which is humanity. Sometimes He may give it a pull or push to loosen the hold; but whatever He does, be confident and carefree, for He is holding that string. This faith will harden into an innate desire (samskara) and will fill you with the essence of love (prema-rasa). The string is the bond of love and grace. You are the kite, bound to the Lord. Earn auspicious merit so the bond of love and grace is firm and grows.

- Prema Vahini Ch 29.

Why fear when I am here? Place your faith in Me. I shall guide you and guard you.-BABA.

How do we counter the pulls of the Gunas or qualities of passion and dullness? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

As your day progresses, as one enters the field of daily work and toil, you are infused with the passionate quality (rajoguna). Before you take your lunch, meditate on the Lord again and dedicate the work, and the fruit derived from it to the Lord Himself. Start eating only after this act... of devotion and grateful remembrance. This is the meaning of the noon (maadhyannika) worship. By observing this ritual, passion is kept in check and is overpowered by the satwic nature. During the day, people are possessed by a third nature, tamas or dullness. When evening descends, one hurries home, eats one’s fill, and is overpowered by sleep. But a duty still remains. To eat and sleep is the fate of idlers and drones. When the worst of the qualities, tamas threatens to rule, one must make a special effort to escape its coils by resorting to prayer in the company of those who extol the Lord, reading about the glory of God, the cultivation of good virtues, and the purposeful nursing of good rules of conduct. This is the prescribed evening worship (sandhyavandana).

- Dharma Vahini, Ch 7.

Prayer alone makes life happy, harmonious and worth living in this universe.-BABA.

In addition to the regular security duty which the alumnae have been doing round the year for the last 21 years, they were assigned two other seva activities this time. Namely

1. Information Center and help desk to assist devotees. The kiosk that was set up in front of W3 A1 (opposite the Canteen Coupons Counter) and operated from 7.30 am - 7.30 pm.

They helped devotees with queries regarding rail and Bus timings, Accommodation, Cloak rooms, Free food counters and medical camp etc.

Over a hundred alumnae residing in different states of India and different countrieslike UK, USA, Doha, Bahrain, Australia, Malaysia and Nepal grabbed the opportunity to serve Swami.

It was ensured that throughout the day there were alumnae who could speak in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada and English at the information kiosk.

Why should we persist in continuously reciting God’s name and doing good deeds, even if we fail once or twice? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today.

Twenty hammer strokes might not succeed in breaking a stone, but the twenty first might. Does this mean the first 20 blows were of no avail? No! Each stroke contributed its share to the final success which was the cumulative effect of all 21 strokes. So too, you...r mind is engaged in a struggle with the internal and external world. Needless to say, you may not always succeed. You can attain everlasting bliss by immersing yourself in good works and saturating your mind with the love of God. Infuse every moment of life with that love. Then evil tendencies will not obstruct you. When your mind dwells with the Lord always, you will be drawn automatically only toward good deeds. The objective of all spiritual practices is to destroy the mind, and some day, one good deed will succeed in destroying it, just like the 21st stroke. Hence no good deed is a waste - every little act counts!

- Prema Vahini, Ch 28.

There is no greater blessing than having good thoughts. - BABA.

What is the purpose of the morning prayer? Bhagawan inspires us today, so we choose to follow it assiduously every day.

To fix your mind on God, activities must be controlled. To successfully control them, you should overcome the handicaps of the gunas - satwa, rajas, and tamas. When these forces of natural impulse predominate and try to direct along their channels, you must pray to God to negate their p...ull. That is the first duty of a good devotee. The rule of nature is that the morning is the period of pure (satwic) quality, the noon of passionate (rajasic) quality, and the evening hour of dusk of dull (tamasic) quality. At dawn, the mind is calm and clear when awakened from the comfort of sleep liberated from agitations and depressions. In that mental condition, meditation on the Lord is very fruitful. This is the purpose of morning prayers (pratah-sandhya). But, ignoring the significance, people do rituals in a blind mechanical way. From now on perform the dawn worship after realising its inner and deeper meaning.

- Dharma Vahini, Ch 7.

The Lord judges the devotee by the purity of their heart and not by the type of worship they perform. - BABA.

What is the benefit in the constant recitation of the Lord’s Name, at all times? Why should we do that? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us in crystal clear terms today.

Have the Lord’s name within and the practice of your duty (swadharma) without. Even while engaging in selfless service, let your mind repeat the Lord’s Name. When rains pour on the mountain peaks and the water hurries down on all sides, ...no river emerges therefrom. However when the waters flow in a single direction, first a brook, then a stream, then a torrent, and finally a river is formed, and the rains reach the sea. Water that runs in one direction reaches the sea; water that flows in four directions soaks in and is lost. Mental tendencies (samskaras) are like this. Of what use are they if they merely come and go, this way today and that way tomorrow? The holy stream of good inborn desires must flow full and steady along the fields of holy thoughts and finally abide in the great ocean of bliss at the moment of death.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 28.

The one steady in Wisdom stands closest in the company of the Lord. -BABA

What is the surest way to attain a sacred and holy consummation? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

The net result of all this living and toiling is whatever comes to memory at the last moment of life. Therefore direct the entire current of life towards acquisition of the mental tendency (samskara) that you want to have during the last moment. The feeling that dominates the moment of death works with ...great force in the coming life. This truth must guide a person for the journey of this life too, for inborn desires are the wherewithal for this journey as well as for the journey after this. Therefore from tomorrow, always keep death, which is inevitable, before the eye of memory and engage yourself in the journey of life with good wishes for all, with strict adherence to truth, seeking always the company of the good, and with the mind always fixed on the Lord. Avoid evil deeds, hateful and harmful thoughts, and don’t get attached to the world. If you live thus, your last moment will be pure, sweet, and blessed.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 27.

Bend the body, mend the senses and end the mind - this should be your endeavour.-BABA.

What are sacred pledges between a man and a wife? Who is bound more to the other? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today.

Just as the woman should consider one person and one person alone as her master and husband, the man too has to be faithful to one woman and one woman alone, as his mate, his wife. She has to consider the husband as Divine and worship him and minister to and follow his desires for the ful...filment of her duty of loyalty to the husband (pativrata); so too, man should honour his wife as the ‘mistress of the home’ and act in accordance with her wishes, for she is the Grihalakshmi (Goddess of prosperity of the home). Only then can he deserve the status of ‘man’. Name and fame, honour and dishonour, vice and wickedness, good and bad are all equal and uniform to both men and women. There is no such thing as woman alone being bound and men being free; both are equally bound by the rules of dharma. Both will fall into adharma if they conduct themselves without due consideration of the attributes mentioned above.

- Dharma Vahini, Ch 6.

Both men and women should have good character.-BABA.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 09, 2015

Why should we be careful about the tiniest of our acts? Bhagawan exhorts us with His sweet words today.

People have taught the eye, ear, and tongue the luxury of constant novelty. Now do the opposite. Turn your mind towards the good and examine every minute’s activities. Each deed is a chisel stroke shaping the rock of human personality. A wrong stroke may disfigure the rock. Therefore even the tinie...st of acts must be done with great care and devotion. For a drowning person, even a reed is some support. So too to a person struggling in the sea of inborn desires (samskara), a few kind words might be of great help. No good deed is a waste; every bad deed has its consequence. So strive to avoid the slightest trace of evil activity. Keep your eyes pure. Fill your ears with stories of Divine; don’t allow them to listen to calumny. Use your tongue for uttering good, kind, and true words. Let it always remind you of God. Such constant effort will grant you victory.

- Prema Vahini Ch 27.

The real significance of culture lies in giving up bad thoughts and actions, cultivating sacred thoughts and performing noble deeds.-BABA.

Why and how must we uphold and spread righteousness? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

In ancient times, people never gave up the practice of Dharma even when threatened with death at the point of the sword. Now without even the slightest pressure from others, people slide down and fall into unrighteousness (Adharma). Practicing Dharma is not an ordinary affair. The one who does not practice dharma ...is as bad as dead; one who practices it is of the divine nature. Presently there is an urgent need to turn people onto the dharmic path through the traditional methods of counselling with good advice, sharing with them the attractive consequences of following the path, threatening to dissociate from those who do not, and inflicting punishment as a last resort. You should derive the greatest possible benefit from dharma and while following it, avoid causing any injury to yourselves or others. You must spread the glory of dharma by making yourself a shining example of the peace and joy it gives.

- Dharma Vahini, Ch 5.

Cultivate your heart to raise a harvest of Truth, Righteousness, Peace and Love. - BABA.

What should we do to obtain the cure for this ailment of the cycle of birth and death? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today.

Everyone, be they learned or illiterate, should feel an overwhelming urge to know God. God has equal affection toward all His children, for to illumine is the nature of light. Utilising that illumination, some choose to read good books while others do their daily tasks, whatever they a...re! Similarly uttering God’s name, one can progress in the realisation of God, another may choose to do wicked deeds! It all depends on how you choose to use the light. But the Lord’s name is without blemish, always and forever. God’s name must be recited and listened to. For some ailments medicines are prescribed for external application while for others, they are to be consumed. But for this universal ailment of the cycle of birth and death (bhava-roga), the medicines prescribed are listening to spiritual discourses (sravana), singing God’s name (kirtana), and the like.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 21.

When God is pleased with you, the whole world will be pleased with you. Therefore, let all your efforts be towards pleasing God.-BABA.

What is the task dearest to the Lord? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today, so that we are inspired to follow it assiduously every day.

The Lord descends now and then to uplift the downtrodden and to reestablish righteousness (dharma). Clearly grasp this truth. Many who read the Bhagavad Gita take it that the Lord incarnates when dharma is ‘destroyed’ and when the forces of unrighteousness (adharma) begin to prevail. This is incorrect; The Gita does not say nor is there any basis to draw the conclusion that dharma gets destroyed. The word used is ‘diminish’ (glaani); that is to say, when the indications are that dharma is in danger, “The Lord will come to protect dharma from harm.” Lord Krishna did not say that He will come down to protect and preserve it after dharma has been destroyed! Of what use is a doctor after life has left? So too, the Lord will rush when the practice is declining or weakening. The protection of dharma is the task of the Lord, for dharma is the very breath of every soul (jivi).

- Dharma Vahini, Ch 6.

When we practise righteousness (Dharma), the Divinity within us will manifest itself spontaneously. - BABA.

How can we understand the nature of God when we have little knowledge about or scope to observe Him? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

The body is the temple of the individual (jiva), so whatever happens in that temple is the concern of that individual. So too the world is the body of the Lord, and all that happens in it, good or bad, is His concern. From the observed fact of the relationship between the individual and the body, know the truth of the unobservable relationship of the Lord and creation. The relationship of the individual (jiva) and the Lord, the kinship between the two, can be grasped by everyone who acquires three chief instruments: (1) a mind unsullied by attachment and hatred, (2) a speech unsullied by falsehood and (3) a body unsullied by violence. Joy and peace do not reside in external objects; they are within you. But in your foolishness, you search for them outside yourself, in a world from which, today or tomorrow, you are bound to depart. Therefore, wake up now! Try to know the essence of the eternal truth. Try to experience the love that is God Himself.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 19.

He who discriminates well before engaging in any activity will naturally be righteous in conduct and behaviour. -BABA

#‎Radiosai‬ SPECIAL QUOTE:

"Today, all the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, and space) are polluted and, consequently man is mired in insecurity. Today the world is losing its ecological balance as man, out of utter selfishness, is robbing mother Earth of her resources like coal, petroleum, iron, etc. As a result, we find earthquakes, floods, and such other devastating natural calamities. Human life will find fulfilment only when ecological balance is maintained. Bala...nce in human life and balance in Nature, both are equally important."

What is the easiest way to attain the supreme, and to be rich and happy beyond our wildest dreams? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

The individual ‘I’ believes it is limited; but that is an illusion. It is the same Universal Spirit, imagining itself to be limited. This awareness can come to you either through a flash of intellectual analysis or a flash of Universal Love. The awareness is an act of ...identification which requires Love. Love is God; Love is the means and end. That is why there are no atheists for there is no being without love of some kind or other. And love of any kind, of any measure, is but a spark of Divinity. Love knows no fear, it promotes truth, it finds peace, it builds faith, and it promotes concord. To develop love, the easiest, highest and the most fruitful sacrifice is that of the ego. Crucify it and be free. Dedicate it to God, and be rich and happy beyond all your imagination.

- Divine Discourse, Nov-1970.

Righteous action and control of the senses are essential for the cultivation of universal love and goodness. - BABA.

How do we cultivate such love that can earn for us the Lord Himself? Bhagawan lovingly instructs us as to where to begin.

The Lord is attained only through supreme devotion (para-bhakthi). Supreme devotion can be acquired only through spiritual wisdom (jnana). Spiritual wisdom can be cultivated only through faith (sraddha), and faith comes only through love. So how is love to be cultivated? Through two m...ethods: 1. Always consider the faults of others, however big, to be insignificant and negligible. Always consider your own faults, however insignificant and negligible, to be big, and feel sad and repentant. By these means, you avoid developing bigger faults and defects, and acquire the qualities of brotherliness and forbearance. 2. Whatever you do, with yourself or with others, do it remembering that God is omnipresent. He sees, hears and knows everything. Discriminate between the true and the false, and speak only the truth. Discriminate between right and wrong, and do only the right. Endeavour every moment to be aware of the omnipotence of God.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 19.

The one filled with Divine Love will be fearless, will seek nothing from others, and will be spontaneous and selfless in expressing their Love.-BABA.

What should we do to please God every single moment? Bhagawan exhorts us with His sweet words of wisdom and courage today.

I have often said, “My Life is My Message”. Avatars make such a proclamation only to demonstrate their Divinity. They are children among children, men among men, and women among women, so that they may respond to everyone’s joy and sorrow, console them and infuse confidence and ...courage into their drooping hearts. Avatars appear among humans since birds, beasts, trees, etc. have not slid into unnatural ways. It is only human beings pursuing the mirage of worldly happiness and sensual pleasure, who have forgotten the task for which they came to earth. God assumes human form only to restore Dharma and lead you back into the path of virtue and wisdom! Hence God is pleased with the rigorous adherence to Dharma. Practice righteousness, it will fill every moment of your life with bliss and the joy of self-realisation. God is everywhere. He is all-powerful. He sees everything. He resides in every heart and listens to every agony and prayer. Have faith in God.

- Divine Discourse, Nov-1970.

Righteousness (Dharma) protects the one who nurtures it. Dharma also destroys the one who violates it. - BABA.

In our day to day living, are we listening to huge uproars around us, or experiencing sound stillness? Bhagawan lovingly explains the root-cause, whatever is our experience.

The almanac might indicate that ten units of rain will fall, but even if you fold that news sheet ten times and squeeze, not a drop of rain can be extracted. Almanac’s purpose is to give information about rain. Rain is in the clouds a...bove. After learning from scriptures, if you immerse yourself in spiritual practice, then the world and its worries will not affect you. It is only when you are far from practice that you experience suffering and feel pain. As you approach the marketplace, you hear a huge indistinct uproar. But when you enter it, you can clearly distinguish each conversation. So too until the reality of the Supreme (Paramatma) is known to you, you are overpowered and stunned by the uproar of the world! But when you practice sincerely, everything becomes clear and the Divine reality awakens within you. Until then, you will be caught up in the meaningless noise of argumentation, disputation, and exhibitionist flamboyance.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 16.

All knowledge and scholarship are of no avail if there is no practice of virtue.-BABA.
