What is liberation? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

Arjuna entered the battlefield, fully equipped and fanatically determined to destroy his enemies. But when he took his position in the battlefield, he saw 'my teachers’, 'my grandfather’, 'my kinsmen’, 'my cousins', etc. and he was moved so much by this sense of ‘I’ and ‘mine’ that he discarded the bow and desired to return to the forest and beg for the rest of his life, than fight the war. The ‘I’ that has really nothing to do with earthly possessions, blinded him. Lord Krishna taught Bhagavad Gita and removed this delusion (moha). The lesson for you is “Be unmoved by duality”. Let not defeat or success affect your inner calm and inner joy. See yourself as your Self unrelated to others or the objective world. When you know your real Self, you are liberated! That is Moksha. Liberation (Moksha) is not a five-star hotel or a deluxe resort. It is just the awareness of your reality and the rejection of all contrary conceptions.

- Divine Discourse, Oct 6, 1970.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

When the mind and the intellect unite, humanness reaches a state of freedom, which is
referred to as Moksha (liberation). - Baba

What must we offer as a sacrifice, in the sacred ceremonial altar, Yagna? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

Every being is suffused with love. It is only for our convenience, for our pleasure, and our own selfish purposes that we develop certain worldly relationships. Give up self­ishness and strive for self-realisation. You must enquire into yourself, “Who am I? Body, mind, intellect, chittha (memories) or ahamkara (ego)?” You are none of these. You are yourself - “I am I.” Recognise this truth. One must render selfless service. The fruit of all actions must then be sacrificed. Only a person, who denounces the fruits of all actions, deserves to be called a Yogi (renunciant). A Yogi is not one who merely sits under a tree, closes one’s eyes and meditates. Real sacrifice involves giving up your desires. Do not be narrow-minded. If you are inflicted with narrow-mindedness your whole life will become narrow. Develop broad-mindedness and cultivate selfless love.

- Divine Discourse, Sep 27, 2006

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Service expresses the Divinity hidden within. It broadens one's heart, destroys narrow-mindedness and gives delight. The evil qualities and tendencies in a person can be driven away through service. - Baba

What is the significance of celebrating the Dasara Festival? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

The goal of celebrating the Dasara festival is to control the ten senses. Legend says that Goddess Chamundi killed the demon Mahisha during this occasion. The inner meaning of this story is that, under no circumstances, associate yourselves with demonic qualities. Always be in good company. If you join bad company, you will also become evil. Hence, never befriend a bad person. The moment you come across such people, just say ‘goodbye’ and move on. You need not develop hatred towards them. Whomever you come across, consider them as embodiments of Divinity and salute them. Even when you come across people who hate you, offer your salutations (pranams) to them and ask them, “How are you brother?” Then they too will respond in the same manner. A hu¬man being is one who is endowed with human values and also exhibits them. Always speak truth and observe righteousness (Dharma). Be peaceful. Be happy and blissful. (Divine Discourse, Sep 27, 2006)
 

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Love is selflessness and selfishness is lovelessness. - Baba

What is the fundamental truth that we must not mistake, in our daily lives? Bhagawan lovingly explains us today.

 

You are wasting your precious time thinking that all that you see in this objective world is true. No! None of these objects is real. Truth is eternal and is beyond the three periods of time - past, present and future. That Truth is Divinity. God is only one, now and forever. How foolish it is to think that the worldly vision which is subject to change from time to time is real. You are a student today. Tomorrow you will become an officer in an Organization and few years later you will be a retired officer. Then, which is true? Is it the life as a student or as an officer or as a retired official? Thus, all that you see in this objective world and all the relationships between individuals are only temporary, never real and permanent. Divinity is not like that. Recognise the Truth that the Divine is omnipresent - yesterday, today and tomorrow.
 

Sri Sathya Sai Baba


- Divine Discourse, Sep 27, 2006.

You are a fragment of the Divine. This is the greatest truth all of you must realize fully. - Baba

What is Liberation? When and how can we achieve it? Bhagawan lovingly clarifies for us today.

Do not see, speak or hear what is evil. You must only see what is good, hear and speak what is sacred. These may seem simple maxims but are full of profound significance. Constantly discriminate between negative and positive actions. All bad and unwholesome actions are negative in character, eschew them altogether. Your mind must be filled with good thoughts, your hearts should be filled with compassion, and your hands must be engaged in selfless service. You will be caught up in negative behavior, as long as you identify yourself with the body. The moment you consider yourself as the master of the senses, your actions will be positive. Mastery of the senses leads to liberation. Liberation is not something to be achieved after life. Striving for liberation must start early in life and proceed continuously, until you are free from the bondage to the senses. Carry on all duties without attachment to the fruits thereof.

What is the attitude with which we must evaluate our thoughts, attitudes and actions daily? Bhagawan lovingly gives us a barometer to measure ourselves everyday.


In the drama of life, some act on the basis that nothing belongs to them and that, whatever words one utters or whatever action one does, all belong to God and nothing is their own. They play their role in this spirit, ascribing nothing to oneself. The other category are those that are like the actors who are conscious of the role they are playing and do not forget their individuality in their actions. They do not consider themselves as merely acting a part but as the doer. The difference between the two is that while the former realises the temporary nature of the part being played and is not attached to the things connected with the role, the other develops attachment to the role and does not wish to part with things connected with the role. Presently, most people suffer from the possessive attitude. The reason is the failure to use the senses properly and enslavement to the desires prompted by them. Train your sense organs only to perceive sacred things and abstain from indiscriminate enjoyment.

How should we play our role in the game of life? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today.


The whole world is a stage and every individual is an actor. The Divine Lord is the Director of the Cosmic Drama. The primary goal of every actor doing a particular role is to carry out their duty, setting aside their individuality. In a school drama, a boy may play the role of a director. While acting, he must exhibit the behavior of a director and not behave like he would in his normal daily routine; those traits must be given a back seat. Your birth as a human being is a God given gift which must be used with due care. Fill your life with righteous acts and do not misuse your talents for unholy purposes. Your life will have a mixture of good and bad, discriminate and select to play your role in a good manner wherein you manifest humanness, and thus conduct yourself worthily. Realise that every human birth is a manifestation of the Divine will.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

( My Dear Students, Vol 5, Ch 3, Feb 15, 1998.)


The Divine is the director of the play; He is also the actor. The Lord is both the lover and the beloved. Serve all with Love. – Baba

What is the root cause of all difficulties and suffering? What should we do to experience happiness? Bhagawan explains to us today.


People today repose their faith in the ephemeral and unreal world, and forget God who is the embodiment of truth. This is the root cause for all sorrows and difficulties faced by humanity. You say you are encountering difficulties. From where did they come? Difficulties are the consequences of one’s past deeds and thoughts. Everything in this world is suscep­tible to change. God is the only changeless principle. What is human life for, after all? Is it merely for eating, drinking, sleeping and ultimately dying? In doing so, can the human life be termed as sacred? At the time of birth everyone is pure and sacred. As they grow old, they gradually lose this purity. This is improper! One must always maintain one’s purity. Install the changeless and eternal God in the altar of your sacred heart and offer your love to Him. Thereby, you can experience bliss. This is the foremost duty of every human being.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba
(Divine Discourse, Aug 30, 1993)

Love is selflessness and selfishness is lovelessness. - Baba

What is the true mark of devotion? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.

Every human being has a heart. Your heart is already filled with love. With how many are you selflessly sharing the love in your heart? Not many! What then is the use of love, if it is not shared? You must share all the love present in your heart with every being in creation. Love is the gift of God and you must share it freely in this world. This is the only way out of all the troubles and failure that people suffer. Many of you repeat the words mechanically, “May all the beings in all the worlds be happy”. To how many people are you giving happiness? Most of you are concerned with your selfish interests, have strong egos and display ostentation all the time. Whoever has imbibed precious truths from the Masters and scriptures must be filled with love. The day you root out selfishness from within, Divinity will flourish and blossom in your heart.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba
Divine Discourse, Aug 30, 1993.

The light of wisdom shines only in a pure heart. - Baba

Why is it an act of foolishness to deny the existence of the Divine? Bhagawan lovingly explains to us today.


Inside us, outside and all around there is air. But it cannot be seen, nor can it be grasped by the hand. For this reason can you deny the existence of air? How can one exist if there is no air? To deny the existence of air is to deny one's own existence. God is all-pervading. He is omnipresent. He transcends time, space and circumstances. God exists at a level which is in accordance to one's own level of understanding of the Divine. All the animate and inanimate objects in the world are Vishnuswarupa (manifestations of the Divine). It is foolish to look at the cosmos and deny the principle that pervades the cosmos. Equally is it not silly to look at the universe, which is the embodiment of the Divine, and deny the existence of the Divine? That is the reason why the scriptures declared: Pashyannapi na pashyathi mudho (The foolish one, even though he beholds, does not recognise).

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

 (Divine Discourse, Sep 09, 1992)

Anger breeds danger. Ego is powerful and very dangerous. Both of these will ruin
you and your character. - Baba

What is the pollution that we must fix right away with deep focus? Bhagawan lovingly explains us today.

Today many are concerned about the levels of pollution in water, air and environment. Enormous amounts of time, effort and resources are spent on purifying the elements. Shouldn’t you also be equally concerned, if not more, about the pollution in human minds? Many minds and hearts are much contaminated. The dire need today is to eradicate this pollution. Many are deeply immersed in worldly pleasures and desires. As a result, there is mental dissatisfaction and bitter frustration. Turn the minds, back to the source, from where they have originated. What should a fish out of water do to survive? Can the fish thrive by immersing itself in coffee or by placing itself on the most comfortable couch? The fish will survive happily only when it returns home - water! So too, human minds must be restored to their original home, which is the Divine Self within every being. Mental peace can be attained only by turning inward.

it does not manifest itself because of the pollution of the heart. - Baba

What is the precious gift that all of us possess? What must we do to leverage it completely? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today

The birth as a human being is sacred and precious. By indulging in selfishness, people undermine their birth and the Divinity within themselves. Leading a moral life alone can sanctify this birth. God is the indweller in everyone and directs human life as one’s inner conscience. If you let selfishness grow within you, it takes the form of lust, hatred and greed. These three vices are very dangerous and demonic. When worldly desires increase, the vices grow to the extent of making you lose faith in God and even lead you to developing enmity towards God. Never go after worldly happiness which is fraught with danger, giving up the Divine who is ready to be near and dear to you. Your parents or relatives may be away from you. #God is never distant from you. He is always with you, behind you and around you, and He will always protect you.

What can we do to let our dear Lord come alive in every action we undertake in our daily lives? Bhagawan explains to us in crystal clear terms.

Sakhubai, an ardent devotee of Lord Panduranga, went to saint Namadeva and submitted, “Master, I make so many cow dung cakes, but people are stealing them. I need to earn a livelihood by selling these, but very little is left for me to sell. What do I do?” Namadeva smilingly asked her, “How do you know that those stolen are your cow dung cakes?” Sakhubai promptly answered, “Master, I make them thinking and reciting Lord Panduranga’s name all the time; my feelings are reflected in them and they give amazing results!” She then asked Namadeva to break and listen to one cake. Everyone around Namadeva were greatly astonished to hear the inanimate cowdung cake reverberating with Panduranga’s name with the correct pitch, tune and rhythm. Mother Sakhubai said, “Not only in these cakes, but if we think of the Lord while performing every action, it will reflect and resound in the work we do!”

What is more important than all knowledge and skill? Bhagawan lovingly reinforces today.

Ravana was a great scholar. He mastered 64 distinct fields of knowledge, including the language of animals, birds and insects. He possessed all knowledge, wealth and prosperity that equaled heaven. He used his penance as a means to acquire mastery over the physical world, reposing his faith on the phenomenal world and not on the Creator. He chose not to enquire about the Creator of the phenomenal world. The Universe is the Creator’s property. Rama was the Creator Himself and Sita was Rama’s Power (Shakti). Ravana, giving in to lust, desire and greed, developed hatred and enmity towards Rama and abducted Mother Sita. What was the result? Not only he, but his entire kingdom was destroyed. Despite such high knowledge and prowess, he failed to recognize the Divine within and ruined himself due to a moral lapse. Thus Ramayana clearly teaches the lesson that spiritual wisdom alone saves, and is essential.

'Bhagawan talks of two qualities that the Lord looks for in His devotees, two traits that are dear to Him, so that we may strive to cultivate them.

Dakshah is the quality of having firm determination to perform pure actions. The determination should be confined to actions that are pure, helpful to others and that sublimate you. At all circumstances, you must choose to act in a good manner and strictly refrain from any impure act. A person who can accomplish this is called Dakshah, and is very dear to the Lord. Udaseenah means the freedom from attachment. It means remaining serene and unruffled by fame or blame, peace or sorrow, loss or gain, pleasure or pain, not elated by prosperity or depressed by failure. You must never succumb to calumny, nor should you exult over fame. Fame and blame are like passing clouds; they must be treated the same. If you take them seriously, they will give rise to agitations in the mind, which may lead to demonic tendencies. Any devotee who possesses these sacred virtues is very dear to the Lord.

Many of us have a question in our minds, “God, when will I ever see You?” Bhagawan lovingly answers this precious yearning for us today.

Many people speak about getting a vision of God. This is a naïve desire. They do not realize that God is present in everything they see. Scriptures declare that the one who fails to see the Divine manifest everywhere around them is a fool. Every being, every atom in this Universe is permeated by the Divine. So you must seek to realize your own inner Divinity and also recognize the Lord in all beings. You must manifest your loving nature, not become stone-hearted. For this, you must cultivate forbearance, love and compassion, and not resort to any sinful means. Your desires can never be fulfilled if you cause harm to others. If you are full of envy, pride and ostentation you cannot please God. The Divine will respond instantly only to unsullied love, and never to wealth, power or position.
