  • JAI SAI RAM!!!

    Man is not just man, that is only appearance; but hidden behind the appearance is god himself. And it is not so only with man; it is so with animals, birds, trees, rocks. God is hidden everywhere. God is equivalent to existence.

    And this is the whole search of religion. Religion is not worshipping in the temples or worshipping some stone statue or praying in the church. Those are all rituals. Real religion is an enquiry into your own being. It is digging into your own self to know who you are. And the day one knows 'Who am I?' one has known god.

    One starts as man; one ends as god. One starts as a seeker; one ends as the sought. And then there is really great laughter, because we have been thinking that we are in search of god and all the time we have been god himself. The very search was preventing us from knowing. We never gave enough time to be quiet and to see who we are. The search was too engaging and we rushed from one place to another, one life to another, one form to another. We were in such a hurry that we never found a time to look within: 'Who is this seeker?' We became too interested in the object of the search and we forgot the subject of the search.

    And it is there in the very subjectivity that the object is hidden.
     
    God is not to be found somewhere else -- god is to be found in you. Whenever you are silent, not going anywhere, no movement of any desires disturbing you, no ripples in your mind, suddenly, it is there... it is you! And then there is great bliss. Then one regains the paradise lost.

    OM SAI RAM!!!

  • How to understand God ?



    Every soul in the process of it’s evolution, life after life, tries to understand God slowly. Infact, this understanding of God, more and more, is the real purpose of evolution of souls.

    If man is better equipped with cerebral capacity than a monkey, it is for understanding God at the first stage and then realizing God at the ultimate stage that he has been given the capacity or nature has given these capacities to him.

    Man is a superior animal only because it has a better physical and mental machinery but because he has the capacity to imagine, accept seek and realize God.

    All the religions, scriptures have prescribed the methods on how one should try to understand God. These are called different paths.

    All the realized souls and saints have also spoken about the same. Baba used to tell His devotees at Shirdi that there are many paths to reach God.

    One of the paths goes through Shirdi, meaning thereby to follow Him. Any devotee following the path shown by Shri Sai Nath Maharaj will certainly understand and realize God.

    Given by Guruji.

    Let us pray at the feet of Sai Baba who is the incarnation of all gods and protector of all, to show mercy on us, and increase our devotion towards him.
    A Person, who has controlled his mind, can achieve any success in his life. How far you are trying to control your mind?
    The mind that judges not others ever remains tension-free.

  • People go to the temples, to the priest, to the scriptures, they carry their own scriptures -- but nobody looks where God is. And God is all around, but your eyes are full of belief, hence you cannot see him. Your eyes are full of prejudice, hence you cannot see him. Only empty eyes can see him, can discover him -- only the eyes of a child.

    And remember, that at the deepest core of your being you still have those eyes of a child -- wondering, inquiring, full of the mystery of life, surprised at each and everything, surprised at ordinary things... pebbles on the shore, seashells on the shore. And the child starts collecting as if they are diamonds. For the child there is nothing ordinary; everything is extraordinary. That child has not died in you! It never dies. It has been only covered with knowledge, belief; it has been lost in words. Just search and you will find your childhood again in you.

    And this will be far more important than it was when you were really a child, because now you have known the ways of the world and the ways of the mind and you are frustrated.

    You have seen a thousand and one things and nothing satisfies. You have known many things and yet you don't know a thing. Now going back to your childhood, to the source of wonder, joy, mystery, and awe, you will again be able to look around... and then trees will be more green, and the songs of the birds will be more poetic, and the people around you will have auras -- they have! just you cannot see. You yourself will become radiant in your own vision.
     
    God is not a person: it is a vision of life in its utter radiance. God is not a person: it is an experience, a psychedelic experience of the beauty, of the tremendous, incredible beauty, of life.

    Sufis are right when they say: There is no God until you have met him. So, please, don't hide yourself behind a curtain of belief. Don't hide yourself behind your so-called, borrowed knowledge. Drop all beliefs, all knowledge, and start searching. Immediately, when you are empty, you will start being filled by something unknown... a light from the beyond. That is God. A love that goes on growing and starts overflowing -- that is God. A great music is born in you, and a sharing with it. And it goes on growing and there is no end to it... that is God.

    God is not a person but the experience of ultimate ecstasy, the orgasmic experience of dissolving oneself into the whole.

    We are living in a kind of unconsciousness.
