  • Spirituality starts with faith.  Man aspires for Bliss.  But how can he attain Bliss?

    Where there is faith there is love

    Where there is love there is peace

    Where there is peace there is truth

    Where there is truth there is God

    Where there is God there is Bliss

    The path of spirituality starts with faith and ends with Bliss.
    Om Sai Ram !

  • There can be no sacredness in service, if good thoughts and good feelings are absent.

    What should be the qualities of the actions we offer at the Lotus Feet of the Lord?... For example, if we want to offer a rose to the Lord, we first select a beautiful, fragrant bloom. Then we remove the insects from the flower. Next we remove the thorns or any imperfect leaves from the stem and in a number of other ways we make our offering as beautiful and pure as possible. Every action we perform should be like this. Our actions must be saturated with the fragrance of love and sacredness and must be good and pure. This is the true: Yoga of Action as laid down in the Gita.
    Om Sai Ram !

  • God is like a postman. The postman delivers
    one letter to one address and the people in the
    house rejoice over the good news contained in
    it. He delivers another letter at a second house
    and there is a lamentation over the sad news
    contained in the letter. Is the postman responsible
    for the joy or the sadness of the recipients of
    the letters? No. It is the contents of the respective
    letters that is responsible. What you experience
    by way of joy and grief is a consequence
    of your own actions. God is only a witness.
    It is one’s own actions that
    lead to good or bad results. Man’s mind is the
    cause of his bondage or liberation. Hence mind
    has to be turned towards the sacred path. It
    should be concentrated on actions of service to
    others. It should be devoted for the welfare of
    the others. Only then the purity of the mind expresses
    itself. To take offence when somebody
    criticizes you or to think of retaliation when one
    does harm to you, is not the right way of reaching
    to him or her. Consider whatever good or
    bad happens to you as the consequence of your
    own actions. Do not attribute them to acts of the
    Divine.

  • It is only during rainy season that the clouds come in the way of sun rays. Similarly, it is only when our mind is wavering and disturbed we suffer from sorrows and difficulties. When our mind is steady and firm, no ‘clouds’ can disturb us. Hence, keep your mind pure and steady. Develop courage and fortitude.

    Master The Mind, Be a Mastermind.

  • Whatever other things they may possess, men suffer from lack of peace and bliss. These two can be got only from God. It is for these two that men should pray to God and not for anything else, because God alone can grant these two. When these are secured, all other things will come of their own accord by the grace of God. People should yearn for God. All other desires are worthless. The infinite Divine can be realized only through love, which is all-powerful. The devotee's love for the Lord is like the love of a child for its mother. If he is filled with love for God, that love will attract God towards him. This bond of love is inextricable.
    Om Sai Ram !

  • Life on earth is, as on the ocean, ever restless, with the waves of joy and grief, of loss and gain, the swirling currents of desire, the whirlpools of passion, and the simooms of greed and hate. To cross the ocean, the only reliable raft is a heart filled with the Love of God and Man. Man is born for a high destiny as the inheritor of a rich heritage. He should not fritter his days in low pursuits and vulgar vanities. His destiny is to know the Truth, live in it and for it. The Truth along can make man free, happy and bold. If he is not prompted by this high purpose, life is a waste, a mere tossing on the waves, for the sea of life is never calm.

    When a man's inner self is filled with love, his life becomes full of bliss and he is always hale and hearty.
    Om Sai Ram !

  • When you offer milk to a hungry child, or a blanket to a shivering brother on the pavement, you are but placing a gift of God into hands of God! God serves; He allows you to claim that you have served! Without His Will, not a single blade of grass can quiver in the breeze. Fill every moment with gratitude to the Giver and the Recipient of all gifts. There can be no sacredness in service, if good thoughts and good feelings are absent. There can be no sacredness in service, if good thoughts and good feelings are absent There can be no sacredness in service, if good thoughts and good feelings are absent.

  • Everyone has to face the consequences of his actions. Who has made the bats to hang from the branches of a tree with their heads downwards? Has anyone done it out of hatred? No. It is their Karma (fate). Likewise, nobody can escape from the consequences of Karma.

    You may wonder if there is a way to escape from the consequences of Karma. Yes, it is possible for those who earn the grace of God. Once you become the recipient of God's grace, you will not be affected by Karma Phala. Hence, you should strive to earn Divine grace. Scholars say, it is impossible to escape Karma. What they say is true to a certain extent. But once you earn Divine grace, even if you have to experience the consequences of Karma, you will not feel the pain. Take for instance a bottle containing medicine. You find the expiry date mentioned on the bottle. After the expiry date, the medicine will lose its potency. Likewise, God's grace will make the Karma Phala 'expire', i.e., it nullifies the effects of Karma. Hence, it is possible to escape from the consequences of Karma. Man should cultivate the necessary strength and will power to deserve Divine grace. You will be free from the shackles of Karma once you attain Divine grace.

    You may undertake any number of spiritual practices, but never forget God's Name even for a moment. Only then will you be protected. Never do anything that will take you away from God. You can achieve anything through prayer. You do not need to pray loudly, it is enough if you pray mentally. Some people have a mistaken notion that God will not come to their rescue if they do not pray loudly. God resides in your heart. He listens to your prayers. If you aspire to attain His grace, you have to contemplate on Him incessantly. Worldly difficulties come and go. One should not attach much importance to them. However, through prayer, one can overcome any difficulties. Only God's grace is true and everlasting. One should strive to attain it.
    Om Sai Ram !

  • JAI SAI RAM!!!

    "I am somebody. I am me. I like being me. And I need nobody to make me somebody."

    Often we spend so much time taking care of all the special people in our lives, we forget that we are somebody special, too. I am special and you are special and each and every one of us is just as significant and necessary to this world as the next. It is not until we begin to realize this very important truth, however,  that we allow ourselves to recognize how very special we are. Beginning today, make a conscious effort daily to honor and celebrate the very
    special somebody that is you.

    So always keep smiling....BABA SAI will be more happy with this small gesture of yours.

    OM SAI RAM!!!

  • The Grace of God cannot be won through the gymnastics of reason, the contortions of yoga or the denials of asceticism. Love alone can win it, Love that needs no requital, Love that knows no bargaining, Love that is paid gladly, as tribute to the All-loving, Love that is unwavering. Love alone can overcome obstacles, however many and mighty. There is no strength more effective than purity, no bliss more satisfying than love, no joy more restoring than bhakthi (devotion), no triumph more praiseworthy than surrender.

  • People have specialised in the various methods of worshipping God; there are host of rites, ceremonials, hymns, festivals, fasts, vows, pilgrimages; but, the best form of worship, the one that will bring the Grace of God in ample measure, is to obey the commands of God. Adulation is poor adoration! Placing God at a great distance from you and praising Him as Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent will not please Him. Develop nearness, proximity, kinship with God. Win Him by obedience, loyalty, humility and purity.

  • Do not lead a pompous life. Adambara (pomposity) is the root cause of Ashanti (restlessness). Give up Adambara and strive to attain Ananda (bliss). True bliss cannot be acquired from outside; it lies in your heart. In fact, bliss pervades the entire world. Your mental perversions are responsible for seeing evil in it. Hence, purify your mind. Only then can you become a true human being. Perform meritorious deeds. Speak good words. Lead a sacred life. In this manner, you can find fulfillment in life.

  • Does belief come spontaneously or by effort?

    Belief comes spontaneously. Belief comes by effort. In the spiritual life, a sincere, advanced and surrendered seeker can and will have spontaneous belief. Belief by personal effort, without the divine grace and God's unconditional protection, cannot be as effective as spontaneous belief.

    We see a tree. The tree bears flowers, and soon afterwards we see fruits. The flower is the harbinger of the fruit. In the spiritual life, belief is the flower. Belief is a divine angel which enters into us as the harbinger of the Lord Supreme.

    If we do not have belief, we can develop belief. How? We can do it by mixing with sincere spiritual people who care more for God than for pleasure. There are also people who care only for God in human beings, and if we mix with those people we can cultivate belief. When we have belief, we can walk with God in His Garden of Light and Delight.
    Om Sai Ram !
