Darshan -An Unforgettable Poem

1459753_384863808314920_152

The bird with you, the wings with Me;
The foot with you, the way with Me;
The eye with you, the form with Me;
The thing with you, the dream with Me;
The world with you, the heaven with Me;
So are we free, so are we bound;
So we begin and so we end;
You in Me and I in you.
– Sai Baba

Amazing you tube recently uploaded on line. Here you will see old  film footage of  Brindawan from the 1960s onward, together with bhajans sang at that time. 

It Is Enough

1560640_282512838564130_140988589_n


It is enough even if a leaf or flower or fruit is offered to God in all reverence. God never questions the amount of time you have spent in worshipping Him or what you have placed as an offering. This is not important. It is the intend behind the action that matters. God’s grace is not determined by the size of the offering. It is a matter of supreme importance to be eager about God. We should always retain this fact as our focus. ~Baba   From: Sathya Sai Sathy Sambhashana

Swadharmaacharana

saiandshive


Swadharmaacharana – following one’s duty as prescribed enjoined. Let us assume we are serving a patient, if that service is extended without the delicate emotions of compassion in the heart, the service turns irritable. The kind of service becomes burdensome, both to the server and served. Seva devoid of psychological co-operation gives birth to ego. It leads to expectation of similar service for you from the served. Expectation of praise from the served arises in him. When such a thought is attached to karma, it completely changes the very form of that karma. Only when wick and oil are together can we have light. Similarly, when vikarma is added to karma do we turn non-expectant (nishkamma), like a mother’s hand when tending to her child. – Baba

All divine incarnations without any differentiation are one and the same. The one and only God dips in the ocean of life and upon reaching one bank, is called  Krishna, when God dips again and reaches yet another bank, is called Rama. In a similar fashion, on the mighty tree of “sat-chit-adanda”  (Truth-Consciousness-Bliss). Rama, Krishna, Christ, Allah – one God in different forms, hang on several bunches of fruit. from these bunches, one or two of them descend to the earth to bring in mighty transformations. When Sri Ramachandra incarnated on earth, only Ramanchandra was God incarnate. Only very few knew of  the divinity of an incarnation. A frog,  residing in water, can never understand the sweetness of the lotus. It keeps leaping from one leaf to the other, without knowing the sweetness and perfume of the flower. If the frog had known of the sweetness of the lotus, would it ever allow access to the flower to a bumble-bee? Just as an elephant has external tasks and internal teeth, a Divine Incarnation has the exterior of an average man with a resplendent inner conscience of Brahmananda, ~Baba -Sathya Sai Sath Sambhashana

Who Am I

aaswamismile99
.

Who am I? Blood? Flesh? Bones? After serious contemplation, you will understand that there is no such thing as ‘I’ (an individual). This will ultimately make one realise that there in only One, and that is God. Only when ego is conquered does God appear. Jnana (Knowledge), is of several forms. The first one is the worldly wisdom, that all average human beings have. It is not very intense. It is like a lamp in a room; the light is confined to only the four walls. The jnana of bhaktha is far more resplendent. It is like the moonlight in which one can see outside as well as what is inside the room. The jnana of a master is eternally bright like the light of the sun. He is really a jnana-bhaskara10 (The Sun of Knowledge).   ~Baba – from Sathya Sai Sath Sambhashana

Different are the religions. Different are the Garments, Materials, the same. Different are the ornaments, God, the same. Different are the colours of the cows, Milk the same. different are the living beings, Life, the same. Different are the nationalities and ethics, Birth, is the same. Different are the faiths, God, the same. Different are the species of flowers, Worship, the same. How ignorant the human race, Confined to the pain of externals! Fascinating are the ways of God.

Know this and walk upon the Earth. ~ Baba -Sathya Sai Sath Sambhashana

Love in thought is truth.
Love in action is right conduct.
Love is understanding, is peace.
Love in feeling is non-violence.
Love is a bridge over the sea of change.
Do not build a house on it. ~ Baba
