What is the true purpose of the human body? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us with a beautiful simile today.

A plantain tree has a number of uses: the plantain leaf is used to serve a meal, its flower in cooking, and the trunk is helpful for binding and packing things as a good string-yielding substance, but its main use is in the bunch of bananas! You take all the trouble of planting and growing the tree for the sake of bananas, not its leaves, strings, the inner soft core, or the flower. So too, the main use of this human body is the realisation of the Divine, the rest is all incidental. You may say, ‘Oh the hands have so much to do!’ Though you may use it for all purposes, its chief purpose is to pray, to worship God, to hold His Feet. Ears are designed to hear God’s glory, and the eyes to witness His manifestations! The tongue is often misused to talk scandal, or flatter! Use it as God willed it, to sing hymns of Divine Glory.

- Divine Discourse, Feb 21, 1971.

Know that the purpose of human birth is to reach the Lord through worship.-BABA

What is true love? Where can we find it? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today.

Prema (Love) is like a most precious diamond. Love is alien to persons who are selfish, conceited or ostentatious. Where then is this love to be found? This precious diamond can only be got in the kingdom of Love, in the street of Love, in the shop of Love. It can be obtained only through a loving heart. It may be asked, "Is not the whole world permeated with Love? Then why is not Love readily available?" The love with which the world is considered to be filled with is not real love. Love cannot be associated with the body, the senses, the mind and the intellect. Anything associated with these is only attachment (Anuraga). Spiritual (Atmic) life alone is a Love-filled life. Therefore, lead a spiritual life, not a life bound by body, mind, senses and intellect. A life related to the body, the senses, the mind and the intellect can never be free from selfishness, conceit and ostentation.

-Divine Discourse, Aug 21, 1992.

Start the Day with Love, Fill the Day with Love, End the Day with Love.  This is the way to God! – BABA

Who is responsible for our success?  What is the one special food we must consume everyday?  Bhagawan, our Loving God, sweetly teaches us today.

In a spiritual sphere of mental peace and inner joy, the responsibility for success or failure is entirely one’s own. You have no right to shift it on to others. The fire will go out if the fuel is over, so stop feeding it with fuel. Do not add fuel to the fire of the senses. Detach the mind from the temporary and attach it to the eternal. Plant the seedling of devotion, namely the preliminary exercise of remembering the Lord’s name (namasmarana) in the mind. That will grow into a tree with the branches of virtue, service, sacrifice, love, equanimity, fortitude, and courage. You swallow food, but you are not aware how that food is transformed into energy, intelligence, emotion, and health. In the same way, just swallow this food for the spirit, this remembrance of the Lord’s name, and watch how it gets transmuted into virtue and the rest without your being aware of it.

  - Divine Discourse, Feb 27, 1961.

True spirituality is promoting unity through harmonious living and sharing the joy with one and all. -BABA.��

What is the value of self-confidence in one’s life? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today with an example from the life of the US President, Abraham Lincoln.

Abraham Lincoln was born in an extremely poor family in America. His mother Nancy worked hard to educate him. When Lincoln went to school, other children made fun of him for his dress and poverty. Unable to bear this, Lincoln told his mother, “Mother, my fellow-students are ridiculing me a lot. Please get me good clothes.” Drawing him close, his mother said, “Son, our family condition is not good. Even feeding everyone is a problem. In this condition, how can you expect good clothes? Live according to your condition. Sooner or later you will reach the level of your deservedness. Don’t be deterred by other people’s ridicule. Live with self-confidence. Self-confidence is the source of all success.” Thus, she encouraged him. From that moment, Lincoln endowed himself with great self-confidence and pursued his studies and activities with honest effort. He was never upset over anything. Though devoid of material wealth and comforts, with self-confidence as his armour he succeeded.

- Divine Discourse, Nov 23, 2000.

Fortitude endows a person with self-confidence.  Self-confidence generates an immense internal power. -BABA

Why must we endeavour to see the Unity in diversity? Bhagawan our loving God gives us a most beneficial piece of advice.

Once the Atma is cognised, you will find that all is really One. This is the goal prescribed by the scriptures of this land. But the children of this sacred land have neglected it and are today struggling in the quagmires and cesspools of faction and fear. When the four bulls that grazed in the jungle were united and watchful of each other's safety (for they felt they were all one) the tiger dared not approach them; but, when discord broke them and created out of the ‘one’, four separate individuals, they were attacked one by one, and devoured by the tiger. That is the fate of those who feel separate. Know that though vyaktis (individuals) may be separate, the shakti (power) is one; that Shakti is the Paramatmatattva (principle of the supreme Atma). This is the message that I bring. This message surely is hitha (beneficial), though it may not be priya (pleasing). A patient must take medicines and follow the restrictions that doctors recommend; they cannot eat and live as they please during illness. The doctor knows best and must be obeyed to regain health.

- Divine Discourse, March 16, 1966.

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

‘Test’ing times

When he saw Swami materialise vibhuti effortlessly by the wave of a hand, Karunyananda thought that it was some sort of an optical illusion. On one occasion, Swami gave the vibhuti to him. Karunyananda quickly deposited the ash into a small metal, air-tight box and locked it with a key. He opened it several days later and saw that the vibhuti was still there. That convinced him that the ash was not just a magical hoax! He did not know then that Swami had planned a bigger proof for him along with a wonderful opportunity. That came during the Dasara festival.

Karunyananda accompanied Swami on to the dais where a silver idol of Shirdi Baba awaited them. All the devotees had assembled in the hall and were singing bhajans in full fervour. Swami asked him to pick up a small wooden pot and hold it upturned above the idol of Shirdi Baba. Karunyananda did as he was told. Swami pulled up the sleeves of His robe beyond His elbows. Stepping forward, He inserted His right hand into the empty pot. In an instant, Karunyananda felt it becoming very heavy. The next instant, Swami began rotating His hand and vibhuti began to pour out copiously from the pot on the silver idol. The vibhuti Abhishekam had just begun!

Previously, when Swami had done the vibhuti Abhishekam, Karunyananda had suspected that Swami must have closely packed the holy ash in the pot. But now, all his doubts melted away. Swami smiled and pulled out the hand from the pot. The vibhuti shower ceased! Swami then put in the other hand and began to twirl it. The vibhuti shower resumed. This alternating between the right and left hand went on till the whole idol was immersed in a mound of ash. Swami turned around and exited the dais. Karunyananda placed the empty wooden pot on the floor and walked down in a daze. He knew that he had just witnessed a unique miracle from the closest quarters possible. Swami blessed him with that magical opportunity to hold the wooden pot during Dasara for several years.

With regards to doubting God, we learn another very critical insight from Karunyananda’s life - that doubt can take a very subtle form too. That happens when we question God’s wisdom consciously or unconsciously. There is this incident recorded in the book ‘Tapovanam - Sri Sathya Sai Sathcharithra’ by Santisri Jandhyala Venkateswara Sastry about which Swami Karunyananda also reportedly spoke during a World Conference at Prasanthi Nilayam. (In all probability, this episode took place in May 1974 before the 2nd World Conference in Puttaparthi in November 1975.)

Why do we sometimes suffer and get confused if God really cares for us? Is God silent when true devotees suffer? Bhagawan lovingly clarifies for us today.

If we look at the start of the Mahabharatha war in a superficial manner, we will see that Arjuna was thrown into despondence and confusion, and the opportunity required Krishna to impart the sacred Bhagavad Gita. This situation should not be described as a period of internal controversy. Arjuna did soul searching within himself to decide between truth and untruth, between propriety and impropriety.  A human being’s life is transient. It is momentary, and in the context of the battlefield, Arjuna learnt to recognise the permanent truth. Lord Krishna raised the Pandavas as an exemplar so we understand the sacred heart of a devotee. Sometimes, as a result of difficulties, devotees’ hearts are immersed in sorrow. This is because of their ego and other bad qualities in their hearts coming to the surface and troubling them. To get such ego, jealousy, and unwanted traits out of the heart of devotees, God definitely intervenes and undertakes events to help them progress.

- Summer Roses on Blue Mountains 1976, Ch 10.

What is the difference between ‘worldly love’ and ‘Divine Love’?  When will God really enter our heart? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.   

You may consider that the love within you and the Divine Love represented by God are the same. There is a difference. God's Love is totally selfless, absolutely pure, eternal and flawless. Most people seek things in the world, including God, only for selfish reasons. Human love is self-centred and tainted. Such selfish love cannot merge with God's love. It is only when it is free from egoism, pride, hatred and envy that God will abide in you. Without renunciation (tyaga), if one is immersed in worldly pleasures, and leads a mundane life, their devotion is only selfish, artificial and self-deceptive. It will not lead them to God. God cannot be got so easily. The heart has only a single seat. There is room in it for only one person. If you install worldly desires on that chair, how can you expect God to sit on it? God will take that seat only if you empty it of all other things.

- Divine Discourse, Aug 21, 1992.

Love seeks no reward; Love is its own reward.-BABA

Who is this Swami we so dearly love and worship? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us and also gives us a word of caution about choosing a Guru.   

What exactly is the meaning of ‘Sai Baba’? Sai means Sahasrapadma (thousand lotuses), sakshatkara (realisation, direct experience of the Lord), etc., Ayi means mother, and Baba means father. Thus, ‘Sai Baba’ means He who is both Father and Mother, and the Goal of all yogic endeavour — the ever-merciful Mother, the All-wise Father, and the Goal of spiritual efforts.  Sai Baba is beyond the keenest intellect, the sharpest brain. Even the great seven sages (rishis) failed to grasp the Sublimity of Godhead. So do not try to delve into Me; develop faith and derive bliss (ananda) through love (prema). That is the utmost you can do and be benefited thereby. Do not run after all and sundry who blabber textbook stuff and wear the cloak of fakir-hood. Examine, judge and then admire. Examine their daily conduct, their motives, outlook and the coordination between what they say and do.  

- Divine Discourse, Feb 26, 1961.

To the person who has completely surrendered, everything that they experience (good or bad) is a gift from God. - BABA.

What is the key lesson we should remember when we experience trials and tribulations? Bhagawan reminds us with a memorable example from the Mahabharatha.   

When Pandavas were preparing to go to the forest, Dharmaraja called Draupadi, asked her to sit by his side and said, “Owing to personal differences between us and Kauravas, a situation has arisen by which we must live in the forest for 12 years and one year in incognito. Men will bear the difficulties somehow, why don’t you remain here and take care of old Dhritarashtra and Gandhari?” The Pandavas had asked Draupadi to take care of the two main people who were cruel and in fact were responsible for their having to go to the forest. This is a very great quality in the Pandavas, and we must learn a lesson from this conduct. The moral here is that whatever has to happen in one’s life will happen, but to take such inevitable events and use them to promote hatred is incorrect; it is not good human character. The misfortunes, troubles and pain we experience are not arising externally, nor are they God given. They are the result of our own actions. It is only as a result of one’s own weakness, that one blames someone else for one’s troubles and misfortunes. This is not a right attitude.

- Summer Roses on Blue Mountains, 1976, Ch 8.

Mahabharata teaches us that troubles and misfortunes come due to our own weakness. It is not right to blame others for our troubles. -BABA

What must one do to have the cosmic vision of the Lord? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

A divine vision of Vishwavirat (Cosmic Form) has been described as one consisting of thousands of heads, legs, and hands. Wherefrom has this Vishwavirat vision come? It is simply the magnified version of what is within ourselves. When I open My eyes, I see so many thousands of heads; but when the eyes are closed, I do not see even one head. When the eyes are open, I not only see these thousands of heads, but I also see this wall, this window and everything around me. If one goes outside and sees with open eyes, one sees the mountains, the sky, the rivers and the distant land; but at that instant, if one closes one’s eyes, why is it that one does not see even a small ant? If the eyes are open, we see the entire creation; and if the eyes are closed, we do not see anything of the creation. Thus we conclude that this entire creation has come from our own vision. Just as with external vision we are able to see the creation, with the help of internal vision, we can see the inner self.

- Summer Roses on Blue Mountains, 1976, Ch 8.

Just as a gigantic tree emerges out of a small seed, the entire universe has originated from love. -BABA.
