What is true and chaste devotion? Bhagawan lovingly explains the qualities of a good devotee and how one must approach devotion during times of difficulties.

 

 

Irrespective of whatever inconveniences you may encounter, you must continue your spiritual practices with the same discipline. The smarana (remembrance) of the Name of the Lord you cherish should go on. Your chosen Name must not give you the slightes...t feeling of dislike or apathy. If the Name is changed frequently, concentration is impossible, and your mind will not attain one-pointedness, which is the goal of all spiritual disciplines. Avoid constant adoption and rejection of Lord’s Names. Be convinced that all Names and Forms are the same name and form that you adore. Take all worldly losses, sufferings, and worries as merely temporal and transitory, and realise that repetition of the Name and meditation is only to overcome such grief. You must understand that loss, suffering, and worry are external, they belong to this world, while repetition of the Name and meditation are internal, they belong to the realm of the love for the Lord.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 64.

 

(Jesus) God first; the world next; myself last – this is the secret to joy! -BABA.

Why is it that all of us have to turn to God at some point or the other? Bhagawan answers and explains what we must do even as we focus on God.

 

 

“The world is impermanent. Birth is a misery. Old age is a misery. Be careful!" says a Sanskrit poem. As long as you are alive, everyone would seem to love the body. This is for purely selfish reasons. God alone is utterly selfless. Love God and lead your normal l...ives; there is nothing wrong in this. Whatever you do, treat it as an offering to God. See God in everyone. Don't have ill will towards anyone. Do not have excessive attachment for anyone. Direct all attachment towards God. Love all. Do not rely on anyone except God. Realise the impermanence of the body and place your trust solely in God. Seek refuge in Him. What is most needed today in this Kali age is faith. As often as possible, when you get the chance, meditate on God. Earn the esteem of society through sincere service. That will ensure a good future for you.

- Divine Discourse, Aug 16, 1996.

Pranasakha - A Video Interview Series

 

 

Interview with Sri. Kannan, HoD of HMIS, Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Prasanthigram

 

Bhagawan Baba is often hailed as a great institution builder, and these establishments are often looked upon as models worth emulating. But their true essence lies hidden behind the splendid edifices, effectively functioning systems and the enormous philanthropy. At the core of these institutions are a number of men and women, who ...have been deeply touched and transformed by the divine love of their 'beloved Swami.' For them, being a part of these institutions is their chosen form of expressing their adoration and gratitude for that love.

 

These may be individuals who were attracted to Him as little children, or eminent professionals with great achievements who came to be children at His feet. The story of these institutions will neither be complete, nor will our comprehension of these models be even remotely comprehensive, if the ‘love stories’ of these individuals are not heard. A dedicated team of youngsters in the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Prasanthigram have chosen to document and share some of these stories with all through a special series of videos. With their permission, we would like to share them with all of you. We will present one video every week.

 

Hearing these narrations will make us realise that what happens in Swami’s institutions is not charity, but a desperate yet inadequate expression of human love in response to divine love.

Often during challenging circumstances we feel sad and are depressed. Is that an appropriate emotional behaviour? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

 

 

Above all, it is best that the Sadhaka under all circumstances should be joyful, smiling and enthusiastic. Even more than Bhakthi and Jnana (Devotion and Wisdom), this pure attitude is desirable. Those who have acquired it deserve to reach the goal firs...t. This quality of joy at all times is the fruit of the good done in past births. When a person is ever worried, depressed and doubting, he can never attain bliss, whatever spiritual practices or Sadhana one may undertake. The first task of a spiritual aspirant is the cultivation of enthusiasm. Through that enthusiasm, he can derive any variety of Ananda. Never get inflated when you are praised; never get deflated when you are blamed. Be a spiritual lion, regardless of both. One must analyse and correct one's faults on his own; this is most important.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 63.

 

Doubt is the virus that attacks faith. – BABA.

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2016

 

What is the nature of the happiness we enjoy every day? How can we make it permanent? Bhagawan lovingly explains us today.

 

 

In this vast world, every living being desires happiness that is eternal. Where can we attain this happiness from? Beauty is happiness, and happiness is the nectarous essence of life. Which objects are beautiful in this world? A number of objects attract people in various ways. You th...ink it is the beauty of the objects that attracts. But beauty is temporary, whether it is in human beings, birds, animals, or things. For example, this is a rose. It looks so beautiful. Its beauty gives happiness. But how long will its beauty last? It may be there till today or tomorrow. Thereafter all its petals will fall down and it will lose its shine. When it loses its beauty, it will no longer give you happiness. Thus in this world, you cannot find permanent beauty and permanent happiness. Only God is permanent in this world; the rest is temporary like passing clouds. Everlasting happiness can be attained only from God.

- Divine Discourse, 22 July 1996.

 

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

What should education do to us and to our perceptions? Bhagawan lovingly gives us an important message.

 

Expansion is the keynote of education. The first step for this expansion is the home, where you must revere and please your parents who gave you this chance to live and learn. If you ill-treat them or inflict grief on their minds, how can you ever gladden others by service and understanding? You know t...hat when a balloon is blown, it bursts and the air inside it merges with the vast limitless expanse outside. So too your love must fill your home and your society, and finally burst even those bonds and become worldwide. A drop of water held in the palm evaporates soon; it is very solitary. But drop it into the sea - it survives! It assumes the name, the majesty and the might of a sea! Cultivate the seeds of love in all hearts!

- Divine Discourse, July 25, 1975.

 

Close your eyes to others faults, but keep them open to see your own mistakes.-BABA.

What is Bhagawan’s expectation of every spiritual aspirant or devotee? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

 

It is not the nature of a spiritual aspirant to search for faults in others and hide their own. If your faults are pointed out to you by someone, don’t argue and try to prove that you were right, and don’t bear a grudge against them for it. Reason out within yourself how it is a fault and s...et right your own behaviour. Rationalising it for your own satisfaction or wreaking vengeance on the person who pointed it out —these should not be the traits of a spiritual aspirant or devotee. The spiritual aspirant must always seek the truthful and joyful, and must avoid all thoughts of the untrue, sad and depressing. Depression, doubt, conceit — these are as detrimental as Rahu and Kethu (evil planetary influences) to the spiritual aspirant. They will harm one’s spiritual practice. When your devotion is well established, these can be easily discarded if they appear. Above all, you must be joyful, smiling, and enthusiastic under all circumstances.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 63.

 

It is only when you recognize your own faults that you begin to understand the ways of the Divine. - BABA

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2016

 

 

What is the easiest way to discover and reach God? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

 

Love is Divine. Love all, impart your love even to those who lack love. Love is like a mariner's compass. Wherever you may keep it, it points the way to God. In every action in daily life manifest your love. Divinity will emerge from that love. This is the easiest path to God-realization. But why aren't people taking to it? This is because they are obsessed with misconception relating to the means of experiencing God. They regard God as some remote entity attainable only by arduous spiritual practices. God is everywhere. There is no need to search for God. All that you see is a manifestation of the Divine. All the human beings you see are forms of the Divine. Correct your defective vision and you will experience God in all things. Speak lovingly, act lovingly, think with love and do every action with a love-filled heart.

- Divine Discourse, July 5, 1996

 

Share Love, which is God’s gift, with everyone in the world. -BABA

Today’s Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2016

 

How do we progress towards the state of perfection? Bhagawan lovingly explains and encourages us today.

 

 

Every person is liable to commit mistakes without being aware of it. However bright the fire or light, some smoke will emanate from it. So also, whatever good deed a person might do, mixed with it will be a minute trace of evil. But efforts should be made to ensure that the evil is minimised, that the g...ood is more and the bad is less. Naturally in the present atmosphere, you may not succeed in the very first attempt. You must carefully think over the consequences of whatever you do, talk, or execute. In whatever way you want others to honour you, or to love you, or to behave with you, in the same way you should first behave with others, and love and honour them. Then only will those honour you. Instead without yourself honouring and loving others, if you complain that they are not treating you properly, it is surely a wrong conclusion.

- Prema Vahini, Ch 63.

 

Whoever loves and serves all, him the Lord loves and honours. – BABA.

Why can’t a spiritual and devotional life wait till one gets old? Bhagawan lovingly explains, giving us an important message.

 

Young age is like a delicious fruit. You should offer this sweet and delicious fruit to God. It is not possible to begin worshipping God after retirement in old age, when your body becomes weak, the sense organs lose their power, and the mind becomes feeble. Start early, drive slowl...y and reach safely. Start praying to God right from an early age. If you do not undertake sacred actions when your physical and mental faculties are strong, then when will you perform them? What can you do when the sense organs have lost all their power? Hence practice offering the fragrant flowers of your mind and heart to God with total faith from a young age. This is true naivedyam (food offering). Many people today do not make such offerings. When their senses become weak after indulging in all sorts of sensual pleasures, they think of offering them to God, akin to offering leftover food.

- Divine Discourse 16-Jul-1996.

 

Prayer is for the mind what food is for the body. - BABA.

What is the real food prayer that we must practice? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

 

Before offering to God, it is food. Once it is offered to God, it becomes free from all impurities and gets transformed into prasadam. By eating such sacred food, one will not acquire any mental impurities. We offer food to God on a clean plantain leaf. The human body is a plantain leaf, your heart is a sacred vess...el and and the sacred food items are the virtues and acts of good conduct. Today to whom are you offering food? Your sacred food offering is to demons of wicked feelings such as anger, hatred, and jealousy. The left over is being offered to God. That is why you are victims of restlessness, difficulties, sorrows, and misery. Get rid of your evil qualities and offer your virtues to God with the prayer: ‘Oh God, You are the resident of my heart and You are the embodiment of love, kindness, and compassion.

- Divine Discourse 16-Jul-1996.

 

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.
