"#Practice makes a man perfect" is a cliche for a reason! Regularity is the most important component of practice and the key to success especially in our spiritual journey. More legends have been created because of regularity rather than special skills or abilities. While #Arjuna and #Sabari are excellent examples of the power of regularity, we have a few modern-day Sai-students who reinforce this message for us through their experiences with Swami.

This was a talk delivered in the #Satsangh hall at Prasanthi Nilayam on the 1st of December, 2017.

The #suspense is over... the #secret is out - Swami's answer to the question "What is the way to increase #devotion?"

The second part of Ram Mohan's story goes through an unforgettable set of experiences where he tested Swami and Swami came out a topper in flying colours. But how will Ram Mohan fare in Swami's tests? And what answer would he receive to his question on growing in devotion?

All this and much more from the continuing story of this lovable school teacher who has served Swami for nearly 4 decades now.

The 20th episode is all about how #SathyaSai conquered different places in the state of Andhra Pradesh - Anantapur, Pamidi etc. in the early 1940s. However, the divine conquerer did not seek lands, wealth or resources. What He sought (and seeks) is only one thing - love for God. And it does not matter which name and form of God the devotee chooses to love because Swami always encourages strong loyalty to the chosen name and form.

Enjoy the entralling experiences of Sri Seshagiri Rao, Sri Rachakonda Venkatramaiah, Sri Vishwanadha Rao, Photographer K.H. Rayudu and many others...

Any student of Swami's school will have unforgettable memories with Sri Ram Mohan Rao who has been serving Swami for 4 DECADES (!) now. His life story with Bhagawan is so full of mystery and magic, tears and triumphs, fears and fulfillment.

Most importantly, it gives us valuable insights on what devotion is and how one can increase devotion towards God.

THE SAI BHAGAVATHAM CONTINUES:

The 19th episode of #SathyaToSai has some very interesting and hitherto unknown details.

Did you know that the biography of the Avatar was first written when Swami was barely in His teens?

There is also a sampling of the miracles galore that #SathyaSai performed, as He fulfilled desires of many devotees. But He gave them what they sought so that, one day, they would seek what He had come to give. And that is Himself - the only treasure worth seeking.

There is a vital point which is uncannily similar in #financial investing and spiritual investing. When we pay such attention to #money which comes and goes, how much more should we be attentive to #spirituality which comes and grows?

Here is an experience with Bhagawan Sri #SathyaSai Baba (two actually) that leads us to ponder over this very important aspect of investing...

#Emotion is a part of #Devotion but it alone is NOT devotion! In the 18th Episode of #SathyaToSai, delve through the experiences of early devotees whose intense emotion towards Swami was transformed into steady devotion; where mad craving for the world was replaced with such craving for the divine. The importance of both, Shraddha (faith) and Saburi (perseverance), get highlighted.

Are you ready to go into the sweet details of the first travels that Swami made, mostly to the city of Bangalore? Along with granting #darshan, sparshan and sambhashan, Swami continued to redeem lives by by healing people physically, mentally and spiritually. He also started the practice of the #AkhandaBhajan being the first and ONLY lead singer! Apart from being a godly guest elsewhere, Swami also played gracious host at Puttaparthi

Bhagawan Sri #SathyaSai Baba was born before sunrise on the 23rd November 1926. Thus, though it was a Tuesday, as per Indian tradition, the sun had not yet risen and it was still the Monday or Somavara - the #KarthikaSomavara. On the occasion of the holy Karthika Somavara, the "star birthday" of our beloved Swami, the #92nd Birthday of the Avatar, here are few thoughts.

In the 15th episode of #SathyaToSai, the sweetness of the young Sai begins to spread everywhere - even in far away foreign lands during #WorldWar2! Even as Swami cured people from their physical afflictions, He constantly ensured that they did not stray away from the spiritual path - be it an ordinary villager or a celebrated #yogi.

Though He attracted everyone through his 'visiting cards' or miracles, the ultimate objective was always the #deliverance of the soul.
