“Service is the highest spiritual discipline. Prayer and meditation, or knowledge of scripture and Vedanta (holy scriptures of India), cannot help you reach the goal as quickly as service can. Service has a double effect, it extinguishes the ego and gives bliss. You have come from God, you are a spark of His Glory; you are a wave of that Ocean of Bliss; you will get peace only when you again merge in Him.” - BHAGAWAN SRI SATHYA SAI BABA

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2016

 

What are the characteristics of true devotion? Bhagawan lovingly explains us today.

 

 

Whoever one may be, in whatever condition, if one gives no room for dispiritedness, if one has no fear at all, and if one remembers the Lord with unshaken faith and without any ulterior motive, all suffering and sorrow will fall away. The Lord will never enquire at any time the caste to which you belong or the precepts o...r traditions that you follow. Devotion doesn’t consist in wearing an ochre cloth, organising festivals, performing ritual sacrifices, shaving off the hair, carrying water pot or rod, matting the hair, etc. Instead, the characteristics of devotion are: a pure mind (anthah-karana), uninterrupted (whatever one may be doing) contemplation on God, the feeling that everything is the Lord’s creation, and therefore a) non-attachment to sense objects; b) the embracement of all in equal love; and c) dedication to true speech.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 61.

 

True devotion really means installing the Divine in the heart and enjoying the bliss of that experience. – BABA

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2016

 

What is the secret to attain success in our worldly and spiritual goals? Bhagawan lovingly exhorts us today.

 

 

With diligent efforts success can be achieved. Even an ant can cover miles by moving continuously. However even Garuda (the celestial eagle) cannot soar two feet if it has no will to fly. Likewise without good thoughts and good deeds based on them, one cannot accomplish anything good. The child Dhruva achieved what he desired despite many difficult obstacles, because of his firm determination and spiritual austerities. By his sublime thoughts, he achieved the status of a star in the sky. Likewise any person, irrespective of age or abilities, with faith and determination, can accomplish what they want. In every field steadfast performance (sadhana) is essential. In addition, you must control your temper. Sage Durvasa, despite his penance had no peace because he could not control his temper. Together with peace, the quality of (Kshama) is essential. Forgiveness is truth, it is Dharma, it is the essence of the Veda, it is non-violence and the best penance (Yajna).

- Divine Discourse, July 5, 1996.

 

Forbearance (Kshama) is your third eye. It is the perennial source of joy and bliss. -BABA.

Why should you keep your senses under control? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us the path to earn a good name in the society today.

 

 

None can escape from the reaction, reflection, and resound of their actions. Everyone will have to experience the consequences of their own actions. People who indulge in evil practices become distant from God. People who earn a bad reputation through their evil deeds will h...ave no place in divine proximity. Therefore have a check on yourself when you laugh or scorn at others. Not just this, your speech and vision also must be in check. Some people sing inappropriate songs and eve tease women walking on the road. Has God given you a tongue to sing such vulgar songs? How sacred is the tongue, and what an evil use you put it to? By acting in an inappropriate manner, you ruin your reputation and subject yourself to ridicule by others. Therefore exercise control over your speech, vision, and laughter. If you want to earn a good name in the society and be respected by it, conduct yourself in a befitting manner.

- Divine Discourse, 9 July 1996.

 

Through prayer and contemplation on God, you should try to control the evil qualities in you.-BABA

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2016

 

What is the victory we will attain by holding on to the Lord’s Name assiduously? Bhagawan lovingly shows us the path to the victory lap!

 

 

There is no penance (tapas) higher than fortitude, no happiness greater than contentment, no good deed (punya) holier than mercy, no weapon more effective than patience. Consider your body as the field and good deeds as seeds and cultivate the name of the Lord, with the h...elp of the heart as farmer, to reap the harvest of the Lord Himself. Like cream in milk and fire in fuel, the Lord is in everything. Have full faith in this. As the milk, so the cream; as the fuel, so the fire; so also, as the spiritual discipline, so is the direct divine experience (sakshatkara)! Even if you don’t attain liberation (mukthi) as a consequence of taking up the Lord’s name, one of these four gates will be open to you: Company of the virtuous, truth, contentment and control of the senses. Anyone who enters through any one of these gates will certainly attain the Lord without fail.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 60.

 

Just as children are the rightful heirs to the father's property, all of you have equal claim to God's property of love, truth, forbearance, peace and empathy.-BABA

He stressed the need for inculcating these values into education and lauded the efforts of Sri Sathya Sai schools which are imparting value integrated education.

 

He suggested and wished if each student from the school influences 10 more students, the society will be benefited at large. He recollected his experiences with Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2016

 

Who should we please to win the world over? Bhagawan, our Loving God, shows us the way in a crystal clear manner.

 

 

When you satisfy God, the entire world will be satisfied with you. If God disowns you, then the world will also disown you. Hence, there is no need for you to make efforts to please this person or that person. Do not waste your life in the pursuit of mean and petty desires. Make earnest efforts... to please God. When you please God and become dear to Him, the entire world will become yours. Thyagaraja sang, “Oh Rama! If I have Your Grace (Anugraha), all the nine planets (navagraha) will become subservient to me.” To become recipients of God’s grace, treat the pairs of opposites like pleasure and pain, happiness and sorrow, praise and blame with equal-mindedness. Always contemplate on God’s Divine Name and become deserving of His love. Once you become the recipients of God’s love, you need not be afraid of anything. You will achieve everything in life. Therefore, develop equal-mindedness and make efforts to earn divine grace.

- Divine Discourse, 9 Jul 1996

Are we genuine seekers of Divinity? Bhagawan lovingly explains God’s ardent quest for a genuine seeker!

 

 

Many aspirants lack moral commitment and seek God for the fulfilment of their petty desires and transient benefits. No one seeks to understand the nature of true love or the Divinity that underlies everything. What we witness today in the world, is a great deal of play-acting. All appear as devotees a...nd all proclaim their spirit of sacrifice. Everyone declares himself or herself as a sadhaka (spiritual aspirant). Every believer claims that they are connecting with God. Sincerely enquire within, “Is the aspirant (Sadhaka) serving God or is God serving the Sadhaka?” The service that the sadhaka is doing is trivial. Offering to God what God has provided is like offering to the Ganga water from the Ganga. The truth is it is God who is serving the devotee. All the capacities given by God should be used in the service of the Divine. There is no need to go in quest of God. God is all the time searching for the genuine and steadfast devotee.

- Divine Discourse 13 Jan 1984.

 

When the heart is pure, the light of wisdom shines. - BABA.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2016

 

What are the clear traces of a spiritual aspirant? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today, so we may progress in our journey unto Him.

 

 

Quarreling at every tiny little thing, losing one’s temper, becoming sad at the slightest provocation, getting angry at the smallest insult, worried at thirst, hunger, and loss of sleep — these can never be the characteristics of an aspirant. Rice in its natural state and ...boiled rice — can these two be the same? The hardness of natural rice is absent in the boiled one. The boiled grain is soft, harmless, and sweet. The unboiled raw grain is hard, conceited, and full of delusion. Both types are souls (jivis) and humans no doubt, but those immersed in external illusions (avidya-maya) are ‘people’, while those immersed in internal illusions (vidya-maya) are ‘spiritual aspirants’. God has neither internal illusions nor external illusions; He is devoid of both. The one who has no external illusions, becomes a spiritual aspirant, and when they are devoid of internal illusions too, they can be termed as God. Such a person’s heart is truly the seat of God.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 59.

 

To get angry is but the effort of a moment; but to get peace, to become unaffected by the ups and downs of life, is the result of years of training in Vedanta. – BABA.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2016

 

What is the real secret to live in real happiness? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

 

 

Good and bad, wealth and poverty, praise and blame go together in this world. You cannot derive happiness out of happiness (Na sukhat labhate sukham). Happiness comes only out of sorrow. A wealthy man today may become a pauper tomorrow. Similarly, a pauper may become a rich man some day or other. Today you are ...being praised, but tomorrow you may be criticised. To consider praise and blame, happiness and sorrow, prosperity and adversity with equal-mindedness is the hallmark of a true human being. The Gita declares, “Remain equal-minded in happiness and sorrow, gain and loss, victory and defeat (Sukha Dukhe same kritva labhalabhau jayajayau). You can truly enjoy your life as a human being only when you consider both sorrow and happiness, profit and loss with equanimity. There is no value for happiness without sorrow. Therefore, welcome sorrow if you want to experience real happiness.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2016

 

What is the difference between an ordinary person and one who wishes to become a spiritual aspirant? Bhagawan lovingly explains so we can take a relook at ourselves and mend our ways.

 

 

Spiritual aspirants must carefully understand the distinction between the conduct of the ordinary (sahaja) person and spiritual aspirant. The ordinary person has no fortitude (sahana), is conceited (ahamkara), and is full... of desires related to the world, through which the person is trying to have a contented existence. Aspirants engaged in contemplation of the Lord (Sarveswara-chinthana) as ceaselessly as the waves of the sea, accumulate the wealth of equality and equal love to all, and are content in the thought that all is the Lord’s and nothing is theirs. Unlike the ordinary person, the spiritual seeker won’t easily bend before grief, loss, anger or hatred or selfishness, hunger, thirst or fickleness. Aspirants should master all good things as much as possible and journey through life in fortitude, courage, joy, peace, charity, and humility. Realise that tending the body is not all-important, and bear even hunger and thirst patiently and engage uninterruptedly in contemplation of the Lord.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 59.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 2016

 

Why should you dedicate yourself towards living in the True and the Eternal? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

 

 

Education and other things that make one grow and become big are of no use for spiritual progress; they bring about only spiritual downfall.

That is why the world is called the ‘illusory universe’ (maya-prapancha). Truth, in whatever illusion it is immersed, will only shine more effulgently,... for such is the nature of truth. How can we say that the objective world, which undergoes modifications every minute, waning and waxing with the waywardness of appearing and disappearing, is eternal truth? The characteristic of a spiritual aspirant is the attainment of Truth, not the search of the unreal in this evanescent world. In this false world, there can be no true living (satya-achara). There can be only false living (mithya-achara). True living consists in the realisation of the Lord. This must be borne in mind by everyone every moment of one’s life.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 58.

 

Desire destroys devotion, anger destroys wisdom, greed destroys work – hence sacrifice these bad qualities.-BABA.

What is the barometer of pure love? How can we develop it within ourselves? Bhagawan lovingly reveals the secret recipe.

 

 

Embodiments of Love! The hallmark of love is selfless sacrifice (thyaga). Love seeks nothing from anyone. It bears no ill-will towards anyone. It is utterly selfless and pure. Failing to understand the true nature of love, people yearn for it in various ways. Love must be cherished with feelings of selflessness and sacrifice. In what is deemed as love in the world - whether it be maternal love, brotherly love, or friendship - there is an element of selfishness. Only God's love is totally free from the taint of selfishness. Divine love reaches out even to the remotest being. It brings together those who are separate. It raises man from animality to Divinity. It transforms gradually all forms of worldly love to Divine love. Even the feeling of universal brotherliness is not the same as the experience of ekatvam (oneness). Even in such a fraternal feeling there is an element of self-interest. Those who really wish to promote universal brotherhood too should develop the consciousness of the one Spirit dwelling in all beings.

- Divine Discourse, 20 June 1996.

 

Just as children are the rightful heirs to the father's property, all of you have equal claim to God's property of love, truth, forbearance, peace and empathy.-BABA

What should we seek and when is the best time to work towards it? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today.

 

 

Those who are agitated by doubts about what to accept and what to reject, those who are blinded by illusion, and those who cannot distinguish between darkness and light, death and immortality — all these should approach great people who can show the path to understand the eternal truth - the self-illumined ...basis of all creation. Then both this world and heaven will be merged in the same effulgence! For the sake of this realisation, one should have deep yearning and hard, disciplined practice. This human birth is the consequence of countless good deeds, and it should not be cast aside; the chance must be fully exploited. As the Kenopanishad says, “This present precious life should not be thrown away.” When there are so many chances of saving oneself, isn’t it a big loss to waste them all? For all those who are slaves of pride and animal traits, this awareness in time is most important. Delay is fruitless; it is as silly as starting to dig a well when the house catches fire.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 57.

 

When the mind and the intellect unite, humanness reaches a state of freedom, which is referred to as Moksha (liberation). -BABA.

What is the secret behind the glory of Puttaparthi? What is the Divine Yoga we can learn from its success? Bhagawan exhorts us with a noble goal today.

 

 

While doing Kundalini Yoga, people practice breath control. In the breathing exercises, inhalation is described as Purakam, exhalation as Rechakam and holding the breath as Kumbhakam. These alone do not constitute the means to achieve yogic power. To brea...the in all that is good is Purakam. To give up all that is bad is Rechakam. To retain in the heart what is good is Kumbhakam. Every human being must practice this divine type of yoga; in fact this must become your primary goal. Puttaparthi is a small hamlet. How has this village attained this eminent state? You can find the answer for yourself. It was not merely a great piece of good fortune or a lucky accident. It is due to the power of thought. Every sacred thought has the power to find fulfilment. Hence scriptures declared: “As you think, that you become (Yad bhavam tad bhavati)". Develop good thoughts and naturally you will be entitled to the right of its fruits.

- Divine Discourse, 23 Nov 1990

 

Noble-minded actions, virtuous qualities and sacred thoughts are the basic foundations of good character. -BABA.

What should our focus be as we cultivate Divine Love? Bhagawan lovingly gives us a clarion call today.

 

 

Develop the quality of love. Fill your entire life with love. This was the prayer which the gopikas addressed to Krishna. A life without love is utterly barren. You are the embodiment of love. Love has to be directed towards what is true. Such love must be your life-breath. Embodiments of the Divine Atma!... Esteeming love as the essence of Divinity, you must engage yourselves in loving service to society. Why is it that so many lakhs of people have gathered here today? There must be some compelling reason for it. You must be seeking something which you have not found in your native place. Here there is Divine Love. What has drawn all people here is the power of Divine Love - that is the bond uniting hearts. At the root of all this is purity. Where there is purity, there love grows. When purity and love come together, there is Ananda (bliss). Whatever work we do, whatever sacrifices we perform, they are not of much use in the absence of love.

- Divine Discourse, Nov 23, 1990.

 

A good student is the best offering every good teacher must give to the nation. - BABA.

SRI. MANMOHAN SINGH, FORMER PRIME MINISTER'S VISIT TO PRASANTHI NILAYAM:

Feb 02 2016

Om Sairam dearest Sai Family,

It was a memorable day for Puttaparthi when Dr Manmohan Singh, Former Prime Minister of India, visited Prasanthi Nilayam and paid reverential obeisance at the Maha Samadhi of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba Varu on February 2, 2016. Accompanied by Sri. Rahul Gandhi Sri. Manmohan Singh landed in Prasanthi Nilayam airport in a special flight from Delhi at 12:30 pm who was welcomed by Sri R J Rathnakar, Trustee, Sri. S.V.Giri former vice chancellor and Trustee of SSSCT.

The former Prime minister later drove straight to Prasanthi Nilayam, as Sri. Rahul Gandhi left for a public function in a village called Bandlapalli in a special helicopter.

Sri. Manmohan Singh went straight to Sai Kulwanth Hall and offered prayers to Swami. He recalled the sweet memories of the Convocation ceremony of SSSIHL that took place in 2010, with the Divine blessings of Swami, when he was the chief Guest of the function.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2016

 

What is the primary need of the hour so that every being in all countries can be blissful? Bhagawan lovingly exhorts us today.

 

 

Look at the crane; it walks pretty fast while in water. But while walking, it can’t catch fish; for that purpose, it must become quiet and stand motionless. So also, if you lead your daily life with greed, anger, and similar qualities, you cannot secure the fish of truth (sathya...), dharma, and peace (shanti). Whatever spiritual practice one may be engaged in, one must practise uninterrupted remembrance of the Lord’s Name (nama-smarana). Only then can you master the natural attributes of greed, anger, etc. All the scriptures (sastras) teach this one lesson: since the Lord is the universal goal and this journey of life has Him as the destination, keep Him constantly in view and subdue the mind so that you do not stray from your chosen path. All the good qualities automatically accumulate with the person who practices control of speech and constant contemplation of the Lord.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 56.

 

Soft sweet speech is the expression of genuine love. -BABA.

What should we do to live in peace and be blissful at all times? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us with a practical example today.

 

 

If you are ill or if your mind is pre-occupied, you will not enjoy the taste of delicious food. So also if your heart is full of ignorance (tamas) or is straying, no joy will be experienced, even if you are engaged in remembrance of the name (namasmarana), devotional singing (ja...pa), or meditation. The tongue will be sweet as long as there is sugar on it. Likewise if the pillar of light called devotion continues to burn in the corridor of the heart, there will be no darkness. The heart will be illumined in bliss. A bitter thing on the tongue makes your whole tongue bitter; when qualities like greed and anger enter the heart, the brightness disappears, darkness dominates the scene, and one becomes the target of countless griefs and losses. Therefore those who aspire to attain the holy presence of the Lord must acquire certain habits, disciplines, and qualities. You must modify your daily living through spiritual discipline.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 56.

 

Fill your heart with the light of love so that the evil qualities of hate, greed and conceit find no place therein.-BABA.

What should we keep in mind to go through life without being pulled by the temptations along the way? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us with a practical example today.

 

 

A farmer clears and levels the land, removes the stones and thorns, ploughs and prepares the field, manures and strengthens the soil, waters and fertilizes it. Then after sowing, transplanting, weeding, spraying, and waiting, he reaps the cro...p. After winnowing and threshing, he stacks the corn. All these various processes are for the sake of feeding the stomach. So too one must feel that all hunger and thirst, joy and sorrow, grief and loss, suffering and anger, food and appetite are but impulses that help us march forward to attain the Presence of the Lord. When you have this attitude, sin will never tarnish any of your activities. Your appetite for hunger and material desires will also vanish, without a vestige of name or form. On the other hand, if you treat the appetites as more important, you will be sure to earn only sorrow, not joy. It will be impossible to acquire peace.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 55.

 

Desire destroys devotion, anger destroys wisdom, greed destroys work – hence sacrifice these bad qualities.-BABA.
