THOUGHTS OF SRI SAI BABA AND UPASANA

  • Extracts from the article of Pujya Sri C.S.Ramaswamy ‘THOUGHTS OF SRI SAI BABA AND UPASANA – Page 32 of Ist World Sai Convention Souvenir 1971)


    Baba's way of transforming the Human to the' Divine is unique. He attracts ARTHAS (people in distress) ameliorates  their suffering, kindles  the spark of  devotion aid then fans it into the flame,    gives spiritual lessons in Mysterious ways. MINOCHEK.SPENCER, Parsee,  a seeker of truth, used to receive instructions  from a departed Saint RISHI RAM RAM.  The  Rishi one day revealed himself to Spencer and told him “I, have taken you so far. But for further guidance you must pray to BABA’.  This Sadhaka has  left a book entitled "  HOW I FOUND GOD"  and there narrates about the daily lessons .that he took from Baba who used to appear to the  devotee in ASTRAL BODY.

    From 3rd November 1952 to 18th February 1953, Sai Baba gave discourses to me in the altar room and they were written down, word by word, as I heard them, without making any change in compliance with His command. These discourses, it will be seen, embody exoteric and esoteric teachings of all "the prophets,—Zoroaster, Krishna, Buddha, Moses, Christ and Muhammad and the experiences of saints and sages, in all the countries of the world, from the most ancient time to date.

    Religion is a matter of the heart. It has to be lived and transcended. The discourses, in the beautiful and lucid language, as dictated by Sai Baba contain so much of exoteric and esoteric material in them, that they should make a wide range of appeal, even though the truths adumbrated are as old as the hills and there may be nothing new or novel in them.

    In the stilly silence of the Night.





    The stars are shining. The sky is clear. The sea is murmuring, as its waters ebb and flow in rhythmic motion. There is deep silence, stealing its way and casting its mantle on the whole panorama of Nature hushed in sleep and rest. There is glamour in the landscape ; there is beauty in the moon, as it rises in all its glory and freshness, throwing its pearly radiance all around. In this exquisite quietness of Nature and the stilly silence of the night, what invisible work is being done ? The Alone seeks to greet those, who silently worship Him in the temple of their hearts, enkindling their souls with the fire of His Spirit. Silence is the language of the universe. Seek silence in the silent night and the fire, and flash of His Spirit would girdle you in all their transcendent glory.

    From darkness into light.




    Man is a weary traveller on the earth plane. There s a load at his back  and  his  mind   is  shrouded   with thoughts of fear and frustration. Footsore and heartsore, he drags on, for he   knows  not   his   destiny.    Bound in gnorance, he makes self his God and worsens his lot as he treks his way in the wilderness   of   dried and frustrated designs-  Selfishness   and   sin into an endless chain of misery and suffering.       Caught in the snare of maya, he loses sight of the   Reality   and sinks deeper and deeper into the pit of moral   degradation.    It is only when the sting of conscience   bites  him and remorse takes hold of him, he seeks   freedom   from this enslavement.    Remorse and repentance open  to him a new way   to  life.    Behold,. his   ways   are   changed. There is no more the cloud  of   darkness   on   his   face. ;He awakens to a new consciousness.    He is seized with a new force.    It is the force of   the   spirit,   which  the sting of conscience   has  awakened   and   liberated.    No longer a weary traveller, but a bright soldier,   he forces his way and knows the destined   goal   that   awaits   him.

    Not sin but virtue, not self but selflessness, not. desire but desirelessness, not pride but egolessness, not greed but renunciation, he knows now, as constituting his armour in the battle of life. Fortified in this manner, with burning love and devotion for God, he seeks the path of spiritual victory. He vanquishes his foe by self-masterv and wins the goal—God's own Kingdom of Light and Eternal BLISS-

    Evil has no rigid place in God's universe.




    Life is a tussle between a tear and a smile. Don't think of your tears but wipe the tears of others. Forget your own sorrow but ever keep in mind the suffering of others. Kiss those who kick you, love those who hate you. Sweeten the path of sorrow with the warmth of your heart, the fire of your soul, the kiss of your spirit. Why fume and fret and be frustrated ? Every load you carry, every harsh word you hear, the taunts and sallies of your wicked world - they are tour friends, not foes, for they redeem your soul and take you to God. Forget the evil doer and forgive him. Let not the fire of hatred burn in your heart. Replace it with the warmth of your love.

    Be gentle as a dove, but stiff as a rhinoceros, when, you come to bay in your fight against unrighteousness. Forgive the evil doer but annihilate evil with the sledge hammer of virtue and piety. Be an angel in the garb of man and spread God's love and light with all the fire of your soul and spirit. Virtue shall triumph for it is the will of God. Evil shall be annihilated for it has no rigid place in the evolution of God's universe.

    Renunciation is the. essence of Spirituality.




    Think of the indwelling spirit and not the body which is frail and subject to decay. It is spirit alone, that is eternal, all else is ephemeral and transitory. Bodily indulgence is an obstacle to spiritual growth and progress. Care should be taken of the body, for it is the temple of the soul, but in no case, bodily enjoyment should be mistaken for spirituality. The body, the senses and the mind are to be curbed in order to cut asunder the inner sheets which cover the soul and make it a prisoner.

    Renunciation is the essence of spirituality. Annihilate all desires and kill the ego in you. Be sturdy and strong like the oak in the jungle and stand fast against all tempests of temptations. Listen to the Voice of Conscience for it is your best inward monitor'

    Work and worship go together Work is the essence of life, but it should not be for the purpose of enjoying the fruit of your labour. The labourer seeks his hire. But the true yogi discards it. He works for the sake of work, to spread God's love and light and not for selfish gain. He works in the name of God for the growth of his spirit and not for the satisfaction of his carnal desires. Work is worship, when it is consecrated and dedicated to God. Be a Karma Yogi, by keeping the fire of love and devotion for God burning in you all the time.

    Religion is the soul's nourishment.


    No man can live without religion. It is the vital part of his life. It is the living water, which no person can afford to miss. It is the soul's nourishment. It is the gateway to the higher and better life. It is the discarded of man's ignorance, for however learned he may be In material science, if he disowns God and the Hereafter, he is the most to be pitied for his gross ignorance.

    Religion binds the soul to God. It is immaterial in which religion, a man may be born in- He must have the main sense of religion i.e., he must know the purpose and goal of life and act according to the Scriptures of the world. All Scriptures are alike in their teachings on cardinal points.

    Remain true to your self and work your way to spiritual heights, discarding all that is gross and carnal. Make God alone the target and goal of your life. Ponder on Him alone and none else. He is the alchemy of your life, the apex of your aspirations. Bank your faith on God. He alone would pull you from the morass of life and crown you with success.

    God knows no language except of the heart. Soul is Spirit.




    Build a temple of worship in your heart. God responds to prayers that emanate from the heart and not from the lip. Seek God with all the warmth of your soul, heart and mind- God knows no language except of the heart. Immerse your mind in God- Kindle your heart and enflame your soul with the fire of the spirit within you. Make God the bedrock of your faith, the bulwark : your life, the target of your goal. Whosoever worships Him with the fullness of his heart, awakens to a new consciousness. It is the consciousness of the spirit within man, struggling to win union with the Absolute.

    This awakening of consciousness brings in its wake a larger life, full of understanding of the higher values so essential for establishment of peace and harmony on the terrestrial plane.

    Like the fruit that falls to the ground when it is ripe, the soul seeks its level, when it becomes ripe for its flight from the imprisonment of the body-Soul is spirit. It is full of life and fire- Body is wooden. It is subject to decay and death. Guard the soul by discarding the body. Let the soul triumph and not your body, for in the triumph of the soul is your ultimate salvation and attainment of Eternal BLISS'

    Peace, Harmony, Love—these form the rhythm of life.


    Peace, Love, Harmony—these form the rhythm of life. They are the vibrant factors which promote happi­ness. Peace is the antagonist of discord, war, hatred and bitterness of feeling. Discard all that is bitter in your heart, forgetting and forgiving all those who do evil in life. No man can live in peace, unless he makes Virtue his spouse and unselfishness his comrade in life.

    Peace is the harbinger of love and love is the most sacred element in man. It is divine nectar. It is the soul of divinity, the parent of all virtues, the source of true happiness. Keep the fire of love burning in your heart. Love all, without distinction. Love is divine comradeship. It is the light of Truth. It is the pattern on which God has woven His whole universe for the happiness and bliss of all His creatures.

    Make your life a book of Love, from end to end. Let every page and every line be the mirror of God, reflecting His beauty, His mercy, His grace, His gentility and above all His great LOVE which lightens the forces in the universe harmonising   all LIFE, which  is ONE. Love begets love.  Love your neighbour as you love yourself and God will love you with a treble  force. Make love the corner stone of your life the foundation of the whole edifice the fulcrum of all your activities, the symbol of your perfection.

    Who is a Superman.



    Who is a Supermen ? He, who like a warrior in the battle of life, puts on the armour of righteousness and raises an eternal fight against all the demons of vices and comes out victorious. It is he? who disregard­ing his own personal interests, dedicates his life to God and all mankind? whom he serves with a singular aim and in the spirit of complete self-abnegation- It is he, who enshrines in his heart love for God and all persons, without any distinction- It is he, whose mission is to spread God's Gospel of love and harmony, peace and beatitude. It is he, who fearless of all consequences, waits on no man, but seeks his own way and is never daunted by the arrows of calumny and insipid lies. His banner is Truth; his gospel is Love. The light of wisdom shines from his eyes. His mind is ever alert to help every cause for the good of all mankind. He seeks no patronage. The poor are his friends- He is God's own chosen son to spread His message of Love and Light and to show the goal of life to every human soul.

    Such a man with super-abundant powers and gifts to bring about a spiritual revolution and a reformation of a unique type—such as he is a superman.

    Self-effacement is the flower of perfection.



    Self-effacement is the flower of perfection. Egotism is the bane of life- It is the devil in man. masquerading as Virtue, It is the negation of the life of the spirit- It is the monarch of ignorance. It leads to strifes, animosities, vulgarities, insipid strivings and vain glory. Discard the ego and be humble in life. Humility is the crown and sceptre of wisdom. It is the badge of spirituality.

    If you wish to rise and reach the higher step in the ladder of spirituality> discard the trappings of the ego and seek God and God alone and not the applause of your vile and wicked world. Self-effacement is the garment woven in the fabric of humility. It is worn by those, who love God in purity of heart and soul.

    What is the goal of life ?



    What is the goal of life ?  Very few raise this question. Many slumber in darkness. The objective of File is not the pursuit of physical  pleasures, The true object of  life is God. Seek him in the inner cave of your heart. Worship Him with all the fire of your heart's devotion. An ounce of godliness is worth  more than million tons of unrighteous possessions and gains. Truth alone will survive. It is   eternal, for Truth is God and God is Truth.

    Gain master of the soul and mind.


    Mankind has abolished the system of slavery but your world is still full of persons who lead a slavish life. They are slaves to their senses. So long as man does not gain mastery of his soul and mind he shall be construed as a slave. To err is human but to continue in the muddle of errors is disastrous. He must rise every time he falls and make a bid for freedom of his soul from the entanglements of earthly desires.

    Abandonment of desire is renunciation and without renunciation the goal of life can not be reached- He must practice renunciation, living in the world, for to abandon the world all together is neither easy nor quite desirable. He must be a yogi in spirit and in truth and he will realise God, whether he practices renunciation, living in the midst of life's giddy ways or in the solitude of Ae wilderness.

  • Discourse No. (12) Righteousness — the most potent factor in life.


    Virtue is the immortal part of man. Lead a life of virtue and you will gain immortality. No man can gain access to God, unless he loves, adores and worships God, dressed in humility and bedecked with the feathers of virtue.

    Righteousness is the most potent factor in life. It is the axle on which the wheel of the chariot moves and takes you to the Abode of God. It is the parent of all virtues — love and gentility,  purity and serenity, tolerance and forbearance, charity and selflessness. If to these  be added, self-effacement, sacrifice, sincerity, self -surrender to the will of God and  utter renunciation of all desires and disregard for all earthly attachments and enjoyments, the way to God -realisation  becomes  easier and possible. The path for the traveller to the goal is narrow and thorny but it is the safest for him to choose. For, broader the path, more difficult it   becomes, as the traveller goes along and it leads not to the goal.

    Seek eternity. Be not baffled by the tempests of life.- Be not seduced by the gaities of life. Seek God in all earnestness, in all purity of heart and He will lead you to your goal.

    Break the chain of maya with the hammer of Self- consciousness.



    God's laws are just and indissoluble. He blends mercy with justice  for He loves to be kind to all His creatures. But loving and kind as He is, no one can escape the consequences of defying His orders and commandments. Shun sin, for it is the cobra that will on your body and mind and make your soul unhappy.

    Nothing can taint the soul for it is a spark of divinity. But the unhappy soul, in spite of its original stainlessness, is deprived of its right to return to its place origin, if man in his stupidity and ignorance, exercises his will in contradiction to God's Laws and Commands.

    Put on the garment of purity. Burn away all dross in you the fire of suffering. Break the chain of maya with the hammer of Self-consciousness.  Make conscience sole judge and monitor. Not all the wealth of the world, not all the glory and pomp, not all the applause e people, will heal your inward wound, which will on festering, till it covers you wholly and you sink in dire abjectness, if you forsake God and His Laws and Commands. Be sure of this, that God's mills grind slowly but they grind exceedingly fine. No one can escape the relentlessness of His Laws.

    The greater the trial, the greater the reward.





    The darkest cloud has a silvery lining. The pall of night is lifted up, when the sun shine;; in all its brightness and glory. Even if the struggle be hard, why be sad and gloomy ? For, is not God, your Father, near you, to befriend you ? Keep your mind still like waters of the deep lake. Stand firm like a rock shrink not if calamities pour on you, like a hurricane. greater the trial, the greater the reward, the greater the misery,  the greater  the  happiness,  that must follow the the sunny day, when the night is over.

    Stain not your mind or body with impurity. Walk the path of rectitude, with love  for all—a smile for a sick and forgiveness to all. Make that the ideal of your life, if you wish to win the race and come out triumphant from the struggle of life.

    Hatred, malice, revenge, jealousy, bigotedness, pride, greed, lust, sloth—these are the companions of Satan. Love, purity, righteousness, gentility, humility, tolerance, forbearance, broadmindedness, contentedness, culture, labour, sincerity, loyalty, one-mindedness—these are the fragrant flowers, that grow in the Garden of God. Make a bouquet of them and carry it with you, for each flower is reminiscent of God's glory and a remembrancer of His Kingdom. Make virtue your crown and vice a footstool, to trample it under your feet. Be a master, not a slave of your mind, body and the senses.
