My life is My message
Love All, Serve All
Help Ever, Hurt Never
Why fear when I am here
Love is my form, Truth is my breath
Love lives by giving and forgiving - Self lives by getting and forgetting.
Life is a game, play it.
There is life throughout the Universe. To God the Universe is one. Earth is the symbol of the Lord and is an image of the Lord.
There is only one language, the language of the Heart.
Life is a dream, realise it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Hands that help are holier than lips that pray.
I know the agitations of your hearts, the aspirations, the waves and whirlpools; but, you do not know My heart. I react to the pain you undergo, the joy that you feel. For, I am in every heart. That is the temple where I dwell.
Love is God, Live in Love.
Hands in the Society, Head in the Forest.
The whole world is Reflection, Reaction & Resound.
3Ds = Duty, Devotion, Discipline
WATCH = watch your Words + Actions + Thoughts + Character + Heart
Seva is the best sadhana.
Where there is Love, there is Peace.
Time waste, is life waste.
The secret of happiness is not doing what one likes, but in liking what one has to do.
Take one step towards Me; I shall take a hundred towards you
Dharma protects those who protect Dharma
Come to me, eager to learn, to progress, to see yourself in Me, and I shall certainly welcome you and show you the way. You will indeed be blessed.
Bear all and do nothing; Hear all and say nothing; Give all and take nothing; Serve all and be nothing.
Make your life a rose, that speaks silently in the language of fragrance.
Greed yields only sorrow; contentment is best.
You are not one person, but three: The one you think you are; The one others think you are; The one you really are.
The mother is the pillar of the home, of society, of the nation, and so of humanity itself.
If it is good and will harm no one, go ahead. If it is not good, put it aside. If not sure, do nothing until sure.
I - Want - Peace "I" is ego. "Want" is desire. Remove ego and desire and you have peace.
Learn to speak what you feel, and act what you speak.
Doing one's duty, however small, in an unattached manner gives rise to the awakening of self awareness.
The end of wisdom is freedom.
The end of culture is perfection.
The end of knowledge is love.
The end of education is character.
If wealth is lost, nothing is lost.
If health is lost, something is lost.
If character is lost, all is lost.
The first step in the Sadhana is the cleansing of the speech. Talk sweet without anger.
The body will shine if the character is fine; service of man and worship of God will preserve its charm.
The minimum qualifications for Grace is surrender of ego.
Don't waste money Don't waste time Don't waste food Don't waste energy
The less you talk, the more will become your mental power. With the increase in your mental capacity, there will be increase in your power of discrimination too.
When one cultivates the inner look, one attains the conviction of the basic equality of all.
The joy of being the master of senses is far greater than being their slave.
Bend the body, mend the senses and end the mind - this is the way to Immortality
Haste makes waste; Waste makes worry; So do not be in a hurry.
Man minus immorality is Immortality.
You should completely forget the help rendered by you to others and the harm done to you by others.
If animal feelings are washed out, Divine feelings begin to overflow instead.
Think before speaking. Think before acting. Then go ahead If you feel good about it.
Do not waste a single moment, in idling or loose living.
Desire destroys devotion, anger destroys wisdom, greed destroys work - hence these bad qualities must be sacrificed.
TRUTH   ♦   RIGHT CONDUCT   ♦   PEACE   ♦   LOVE   ♦   NON VIOLENCE

In the Cosmic Classroom

top-01.jpg

In the Cosmic Classroom,
It is Graduation day for all of us,
From being little saplings under the Evergreen Tree…
…coming into our own as a shade giving tree,
From a mere fledgling, to a bird that can fly on its own,
For the Beloved Master taught us how to fly…
…and is always the Wind beneath our wings…
From the cocoon emerges a butterfly flying free…
…its colours shining bright…
…bringing hope and cheer to innumerable many.

Let us pledge to be that drop of water…
…from the Ocean of Consciousness…
…that quenches the thirst of countless many…
…immensely…harmoniously.

Let us be that flower from the garden Divine…
…tended to and nurtured by the Master Himself…
…now to exude His Fragrance everywhere…
…an illustration extraordinaire.

Let us be that star in His Firmament…
…that shines the brightest for Him…
…eliminating darkness bringing light…
…representing a celestial synonym…

Let us be light houses of peace and beacons of love…
…bringing harmony wherever we go…
Let us sing His glory and be His reflection each step of the way…
…each moment of every day…

Let us be that candle that diffuses the shadows of pessimism…
…with radiant rays of steadfast optimism…

Let us be confident of His Presence,
And,
Let our lives ring out His Message…
…that exudes –
Sathya, Dharma, Prema, Shanti and Ahimsa…
…in thought, word and deed…
…indeed…

Let us surge forward willing instruments selected by Him,
To selflessly serve Him in all that we see…
…knowing that Beloved Bhagawan dwells…
…in the animate and the inanimate,
Every atom in the Cosmos,
His Essence does pervade and permeate…

Let us Help Ever, Hurt Never,
Love All, Serve All…
…all creatures both great and small…

Let us build bridges not walls,
Heralding a Cosmic Brotherhood…
…our attitude in harmony suffused…
…gratitude into infinitude…

Let consciousness expand,
Compassion increase,
Let us breathe empower and envision –
Care for life, concern for nature…
…respect and reverence for all beings…
…in all of creation…

Let Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu,
Become a way of life,
Echoing forth in all that we see, hear, speak and do…
Our character, outlook and belief,
Let it energise, synchronize, harmonize,
Let us live to please the Beloved One and never to let Him down,
Let us release the shackles that do us bound,
Will we ever get such a Master,
…the blessing…the grace…
…oh, such a magnanimous boon…
Are we ready then…
…to graduate from the Cosmic Classroom?

The following letter has been distributed by Prasanthi Council.

16 March 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Om Sri Sai Ram.

Om Sri Sai Ram.

Sathya Sai devotees all over the world solemnly observe 24 April by remembering and practicing the teachings of Lord Sathya Sai, the Pari-purna Avatar, who left His physical form on this day. This year, the Aradhana Mahotsavam will be observed from 28 March through 27 April 2016, by Sathya Sai devotees globally, including India.

Sathya Sai devotees all over the world solemnly observe 24 April by remembering and practicing the teachings of Lord Sathya Sai, the Pari-purna Avatar, who left His physical form on this day. This year, the Aradhana Mahotsavam will be observed from 28 March through 27 April 2016, by Sathya Sai devotees globally, including India.

The Sathya Sai International Organisation, in coordination with the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisation of India, recommends that we undertake 30 days of intense spiritual practice to express our gratitude for the unconditional love showered on us by our loving Lord, Bhagawan Sathya Sai Baba. The focus of this period of intense sadhana should be to live by the words of Swami, remembering His love, His kindness and His blessings that touched each one of our lives.

In the context of varying cultural traditions, religious beliefs and government regulations in various countries, Sathya Sai devotees are advised to engage in some or all of the following activities, at individual, centre, regional and national levels of the SSIO:

  • Remember and Count the blessings received from Bhagawan during our lifetime
  • Daily chanting of “Om Sri Sai Ram” (108 times), Sai Gayatri (9 times), and “Samastha Loka Sukhino Bhavantu” (3 times)
  • Daily reading of Sathya Sai literature
  • Devotional singing and Bhajans
  • Sharing experiences about the glory of Bhagawan and personal transformation, as part of centre programme
  • Meditation
  • Cultural programmes on the life and message of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
  • Sathya Sai Youth and Children’s performances and projects
  • Service projects
  • Practice ceiling on desires and implement “Help Ever; Hurt Never” in thought, word and deed
  • Audio/Video presentations on Swami’s discourses, His darshan, and His works
  • Selected practices from the “Sadhana of Love” by Sathya Sai Youth (please see link below)

The Sadhana of Love is a programme developed by the Sathya Sai Youth and can be viewed at: http://youthfest.sathyasai.org/sadhana-of-love

It consists of 72 items based on Swami’s teachings, arranged under four categories, that can be practiced as a spiritual discipline.

Let us all join together as one Sai family in this noble and uplifting spiritual exercise to honour and cherish the memory of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

By His boundless grace and His blessings, let us glorify our Lord and redeem our lives by living in love and doing selfless service till our last breath.

Jai Sai Ram.

With loving regards,

Narendranath Reddy, M.D.
Chairman, Prasanthi Council
