Excerpts from Swami's discourse

With Greetings to all the devotees of our beloved Bhagwan Loving sairam to you all. The crowd has doubled in numbers, and the Gurupoornima crowd is here in Parthi added to the thousands of World youth Conference Delegates. The
atmosphere in Puttaparthi is fully charged and thanks to Swami, Who is spending hours and hours with the work shop. This morning there were about 4 speakers blessed by Bhagwan to address the gathering. It was just wonderful to listen to them. Every one, were second to none. By the time the morning session was over it was 11am and our beloved compassionate Swami, stayed for the whole programme.
In the afternoon, before Swami came out for darshan at 3:30, the hall was full and thousands were
 standing out side to have a glimpse of Swami. This afternoon two speakers were blessed by Swami to address the august gathering, starting with Dr.Reddy who in his 20 minute long speech highlighted the importance of discipline. He reminded Swami's words of giving up body attachment and totally have one pointed faith and attention on God..
The next speaker was Mr. Goldstein, who stole the show again with his yet another master piece talk. He urged the devotees to make use of this precious life by contemplating and adhering to Swami's teachings. He was of the opinion that human birth was not nature’s accident but God’s will. Swami has come in this Kali age to guide us protect us and to bring a change within.
It was 4:30pm by then and as all of us were eagerly looking at Swami, He signalled for the Discourse mike and as thousands and thousands of pairs of hands joined, Swami slowly rose from His throne.... after positioning the mike and adjusting His tone, as Prof. Kumar gave a close ear, Swami's nectarine voice sang a telugu verse, coincidently, it was the same verse, which He sung on the inaugural day discourse, reiterating the importance of Sathya....

Swami's discourse started highlighting the importance of Sathya, liberation, food habits, about His health and He gave a hair rising ending to His divine discourse which made all of us shed tears of joy, happiness and love...
Excerpts from the Discourse
Sathyambu nandunde sarvambu shristinche,
(the whole world is born out of truth )
Sathyambu nanadanage sarva shrusti
(the whole universe merges in truth)
Sathya Mahima leni stalamedi kanu gonna, sudda satva midiye chooda rayya
(There is no place without truth)

for the whole world, truth is the base. All the beings are born out of truth. Nothing exists without truth… Swami then Materialised a golden oval Lingam by waving His divine hands and continued, This is the truth...
There is no other noble act than adhering to truth. You are God. Its foolishness to look for God out side. God is present in every cell , atom of your body. There is no place without God. Never forget God. If you forget your self, its forgetting God. This Sai is full of truth. Remember the ABC of life...Always Be Careful.
God is present every where. All the heads here are God himself. God is cosmic form. You all are cosmic form. Only the forms are different physically. I AM present in every one of you.. Spiritually all are one. I am not different from You. You are not different from Me. We all are ONE. Never give any second thoughts. Strengthen this love. Blossom love in your heart. Then only you can share this love with every one. Never hate or harm any one. Today, Hatred is every where, difference of opinion, that should not be so.
All are Zeros. God is 1, Hero. All the rest are Zeros. Because of God (1), Zero has value. Without Hero Zeros are just Zeros. For all God is very important. Mind is the cause for all this. . Mind is monkey mind. Its not monkey mind. Its MAN KIND. It’s the mind that spreads the light and Joy. Its cause for all the sorrow. Many consider mind as bad.. If you can control the mind, it can never be bad. Then only you will be happy. You will experience supreme bliss.


Swami later shifted the topic to Liberation.. He said, for every one liberation should be the ultimate goal. He reiterated that every one has be liberated and reminded that its the BEST time for all us to be get closer to Liberation in His immediate presence... Swami continued......
This body’s name is Sathya. The name is given to the body not to Me. I am not body. I am not mind. I am not budhi. I am not imagination. I am Bhagwan. You should have firm faith. Many people, because of food habits the mind changes. Some for the kind of company. Tell me your company I will tell you what you are. Always join good company. You will develop detachment, that will lead to steadiness and that will lead to Mukti (liberation). Every one will be liberated. But when? Only when you think that you are not the body, you are Atma.. You will be liberated the next day. I am Swami.. Swami is Me. think like that. By merely saying loudly, I am swami. Its of no use. Say that with a steady mind. Meditate on this. When your mind is steady, you will be immortal, unpolluted.
Speaking on pollutions Swami said, This pollution, is causing lot of disturbances. Water is also polluted. Because of polluted water, the body falls sick. Its important to maintain body. Why did you get this body..To know your true nature. You are forgetting this. You are getting more attached to body. It’s a water bubble. Don’t follow the mind. Don’t follow the body. Follow the conscience. IF you follow the concious you will be liberated.

It was already 30 minutes by then and Swami continued His divine discourse sitting on His thorne...

There is a easy way to liberate. Keep your mind steady for 11 seconds. If you keep your mind steady you will attain liberation. 11 seconds is enough. You are not able to concentrate even for 11 seconds. You can experience every thing in this short span of time. Don’t strain your self with Japmalas. 11 seconds of time is enough. Keep your mind steady one pointed . if you do so, you will experience manifestation you will see the result before the 11 th second . Many people in the name of mediation sit for hours..., The result, it will only give you joint pains. Don’t have this joint pains any longer.When you consult a doctor they say rheumatic pain. Its not so. Its pain because of lack of plan. Maintain time and you will not have any pain. Eat at the right time.
When ever you have bad thoughts, always say, its not good for me. .its not good for me. Its not for me. My property is good thoughts. Love love is the biggest property. So many have imaginations and doubts. You all are pure hearted. You have pure thoughts. Some times you get polluted. See that mind is not polluted THAT IS YOUR TRUE SADHANA. What is Sadhana. Sitting and meditating is not sadahana. What is meditation? Merely chanting the name of God is not meditation. Thinking of the pure thoughts within you is TRUE meditation. Mediate upon your own reality.
Later Swami, amidst cheers and applauds said, He will manifest before any devotee and even speak to them directly, provided they pray from heart.
If you find some time think immediately of Me. if you follow MY teachings you will experience Me. Devotion doesn’t mean, simply repeating His name. Devotion means unwavering, steady love for God. Shouldn’t change any time. There is nothing beyond God.
Don't waste time.. Time is God.. I will manifest infront of you (loud applauds). You will be able to see me in physical form if you concentrate with a pure heart. I will also Talk TO YOU . Many speakers said they saw me many times, they said Swami talked to me the other day. Strengthen this thought and everyone will have this experiences.
All the devotes are good. There is devotion but you are not on the correct path. You don’t know what is true devotion. Where there is love there is truth. Where there truth there is God. Truth is God.
Later, Swami shifted to another important and interesting topic on eating habits....
You have to be very careful with what you should eat. Meat eating and fish.. abandon them. Many people eat non vegetarian food. It is not good for you...There is a scope of getting cancer. Give up Non vegetarian food. Not only this .CHEESE all started smiling when Swami said this).. Many people like cheese. More and more cheese, more weaker you get. It is not good for your health and mind.. Don’t eat cheese any longer. Even too much of milk is also not advisable.. Its also bad. EVERY THING SHOULD BE IN LIMITS.. Many people like hard curd They want it to be hard.. Always drink dilute milk and curd.
Food should also be controlled. Then only you will experience vision of God. You don’t have to waste years and years in search of God. Bliss is form of God. Bliss cannot be bought from any shop nor its available in any hotel. Its within you. You are form of bliss. You start crying because of Worldly attachment. Less luggage more comfort, make travel a pleasure. With too much of attachment you make your life worry. Then comes curry. worry curry are two factors which makes your life harder. stay away form worry and curry. When there is a reason to worry, just say THIS TOO WILL PASS. All that comes are bound to vanish.

later Swami reminded all of us, not to worry much about His physical condition. He made it very clear that He is healthy and has no pain at all..
Spend you time with love. Many people, look very serious, with a castor oil face. Smile always. God always smiles. God is never sad, serious, sorrowful. Always smiles. I have no pain because I always smile. I'm telling this now, this body had a fall some years back. My hip was fractured. It had 4 cracks. Doctors said it has to operated. Swami said NO. I walked all the way to give darshan.. Even today, there is an inch difference between one leg to the other in standing posture. The doctors are here, including Dr.Pillay from Singapore. He is a orthopaediacian,. Many from USA also came. I was smiling. They asked Swami give us 5 minutes. I told them, If it is for spiritual up-liftment, why 5 minutes, I will give you for 5 hours , but if it is for the body, I wont give you not even 5 minutes. There is no pain at all for Me. I have no body weak ness or nothing. I am as I was. I am 110 pounds even to this day. I am healthy. DON’T WORRY ABOUT ME. I am perfect, healthy. You may feel that there is some pain. There IS NO PAIN AT ALL.
As the time was getting closer for Swami to wind up His divine discourse, the last part of the discourse was very sentimental. Any one who listened to Him with heart, cried, with the way Swami described His feelings for the thousands of kids assembled from all the corners of earth...
YOUR LOVE FOR ME TAKES ALL THE PAIN FROM THIS BODY. The moment I see you I am in a supreme bliss. Only U can make me free from pain and NOT DOCTORS (loud applauds). I am very very happy to see thousands who came to see Me. I love you and you all love me. Where ever you are , If you are happy I will be happy. Watching you my heart jumps in joy.. makes me very very happy. All those have come here are pious and devoted. THIS WILL MAKE ME WALK VERY SOON (loud applauds). There is no medicine stronger than love. You are my medicine. My love is most powerful medicine you need. I bless you and want you to be happy and peaceful. Be friendly, live in harmony like family members. Never be scared of any problems. BE strong mentally. If wife is sick, if children are sick don’t panic. I bless you so that by the time you go home you will be happy, blissful, and peaceful (loud applauds).
thus ended a hour long divine discourse..
there was a music programme by devotees from Europe who sang beautiful songs in 9 different languages and Prasadam was distributed to all the devotees and Swami blessed the European singers with watches....
All the youth, who came all the way to Puttaparthi, flying thousands of miles, had 70mm smiles on their faces.. Perhaps all were eagerly waiting for a strong FINISHING TOUCH as this to thier much awaited Pilgrimage to Parthi.. All of them seemed determined, all of them seemed to be changed and above all Swami's loving, soothing and encouraging words have definitely given a light of hope, for our sinking lives.. and here we are totally charged.. spiritually charged to be more clear, ready to face the WORLDLY world......


( every care has been taken to maintain the originality of Swami's message.. some mistakes would have rolled in ... I sincerely apologise for any mistakes...)

Scroll Down to read Sunday Special: "DIVINE ADVICE TO THE YOUTH OF THE WORLD"


Sai Ram. This Sunday, we bring you the important points made by Swami during His Divine Discourse, delivered while inaugurating the World Youth Conference on Thursday, 26 th July 2007 . The highlights are presented as bullet points. The full text of the Discourse would of course appear later in the SanathanaSarathi..

- Man is the pinnacle of Creation. That is why the scriptures declare: Jantunaam Narajanaman Durlabham, which essentially means that human birth is a rare blessing.

- Man being a part of Creation, he is composed of the very same five elements that make up the Universe. However, man is special, because he has something beyond the five elements namely, the power of Spiritual Discrimination.

- Today, the slogan is Knowledge is Wealth. But how far can worldly wealth take a person? Not very far, because even as worldly knowledge is rapidly advancing, Spiritual Discrimination is diminishing rapidly at the same time.

- Is this good? Not at all, since man, having lost his power of Spiritual Discrimination, is not able to see clearly the difference between good and bad. And when discrimination is lost, the practice of human values also declines sharply.

- Discrimination is therefore very important for man because worldly knowledge without Spiritual Discrimination amounts to nothing! When man loses the capacity to appreciate the vital need for human values, he becomes a zero.

- Man today is busy multiplying his wealth. But what about Spiritual Discrimination? Is he doing anything at all to improve it? None at all!

- Man is not spending even one minute to ask: “Why should I seek more wealth? Is more wealth good for me?” Instead, he is busy accumulating more and more wealth, all to no purpose.

- The Mind is the root cause of all these aberrations. The Mind mirrors human personality and behaviour.

- The Mind is very powerful and capable of enormous self-deception. When the Mind drags man deep into the trap of illusion, man loses the capacity to go the basics.

- : What is this? This is a piece of cloth. Where does cloth come from? From yarn. Where does yarn come from? From cotton. In this way, if we enquire deeply, we can go the root, to the basics.

- These days, man is no longer bothered about enquiring about his true roots and his true nature. As a result, man becomes deluded and develops false notions about his identity. The degradation of the environment is one result of wrong thinking and the absence of real discrimination.

- Who are you? You are not one person but three: The one you think you are, the one others think you are, and the one you REALLY are!

- In the Gita, the Lord says: Mamaivamso jeevalokhe sarvabutha sanathanaha, meaning essentially, “I pervade the entire Universe being immanent in every entity, animate and inanimate.”

- Divinity is your real root! Divinity is latent in man but what is the use? Man is doing nothing to make it patent or evident through his actions!

- Many seekers today say they are searching for God. But do you realise that you yourself are God?! Why then search for God?

- Man is unable to understand that he is verily the Spark of the Divine because his Spiritual Discrimination has become blunted.

- Spiritual Discrimination becomes blunted when man develops strong body consciousness, that is to say when man identifies himself with the body.

- Is it correct to identify yourself with your body? No, because the body lasts only till death; thereafter, it is returned to the elements. You are not just the body but something much more than the body! You are verily the embodiment of God and therefore eternal, immortal!

- People often say: “This kerchief is mine; this is my leg” and so on. What is the identity of this entity referred to via the words ‘my’ or ‘mine’?

- The ‘my’ and ‘mine’ are to not be associated with ego or the lower self but your Real SELF or the Higher Self. Ego is represented by ‘i’ while the Real Self is represented by ‘I’.

- Man is NOT the small ‘i’ but the BIG ‘I’! However, he wrongly identifies himself with the small ‘i’ because his Discrimination has become blunted.

- When Discrimination diminishes, ego asserts itself. But when Discrimination grows, ego diminishes. Thus, development of Buddhi goes hand in hand with the elimination of ego.

- Everything in the Universe is God. In fact, there is only God and nothing except God. : This table is God, this object is God, this stand is God.

- When we lose the power of Discrimination, we forget the immanence of God in everything in the Universe and become overwhelmed by the apparent diversity.

- There is no doubt an empirical diversity in the physical Universe. However, man must see beyond the apparent diversity and go to the roots. If he does so, he will see nothing but Unity, Purity and Divinity. If, however, his discrimination becomes blunted, he would see only the diversity that is superficial, and from this illusory perception, many problems follow.

- People say the world is full of problems. All problems arise from the process of Reflection, Reaction, Resound.

- Reflection, Reaction and Resound originate from man making the wrong identification. Man is not ‘i’ but ‘I’.

- When man makes the wrong identification of his nature, he becomes a prey to the senses, which then rapidly cause his downfall.

- Man must therefore not allow his senses to dominate his personality. Instead, he must ensure that the senses and the Mind follow his Heart, the seat of God within.

- There is a simple way of setting things right. First, have firm faith in God.

- Strong faith in God promotes Selfless Love.

- Where there is Selfless Love, there is Peace.

- Where there is Peace, there is Truth.

- And where there is Truth, there is God!

- You do not have to go here and there in search of God. You are yourself God! All you have to do is recognise that.

- Modern education encourages you to explore the outside world, in the process totally ignoring the infinite world within. Educare, on the other hand, takes you deep inside and helps you to bring forth what is latent within.

- People have all kinds of notions about Sadhana. In simple words, Sadhana makes patent what is already latent within.

- Many would tell you that are engaged in Sadhana. What is it that they do? They meditate, do Japam, and so on. All this is symbolism, not of much use except as a starting point. When overstressed, such drills become very artificial. Real Sadhana is that which helps to uncover your true nature as a Spark of the Divine.

- The artificiality of modern life has a lot to do with the excessive stress on Science. Science is below the senses whereas Spirituality is beyond the senses. When life is governed wholly by the sense-Mind combination, Buddhi becomes blunted. And when Buddhi is blunted, problems inevitably follow.

- To develop Buddhi, start with unshakeable Faith. If you do that, the road to God would automatically open up.

- Man today is busy wasting Time! Don’t do that! Do not waste Time for Time waste is life waste!

- Use every moment of your life to realise and recognise your true nature.

- If you make TRUTH the goal of your life, all problems would melt away!

- Man falls when he becomes weak. Man becomes weak when he forgets human values. Man forgets basic values when he wrongly identifies himself with the lower self or ‘i’, which is wrong!

- Love is all important in life but with wrong identification, Love becomes fragmented. Such fragmented love ceases to be pure, and is tainted by desire, attachment and so on.

- Love is ONE and NOT many! The fragmentation of love, so very common, is due solely to man being bound by body consciousness; it is due to wrong identification. All this happens because of the absence of Spiritual Discrimination.

- Making the wrong identification, man allows ego to dominate and Love to be fragmented. That is the root cause of all troubles the world is facing today.

- Avoid wrong identification and identify yourself with your true nature ‘I’. This would then help you to discover Peace, Love and Truth.

- Live always in Love. With the help of Pure Love, it is easy to experience God. No problem at all!

- There is nothing beyond Pure and Divine Love.

- Do not become a slave to ego and deny yourself the Bliss offered by Pure Love. Do not fall for the false allure of fragmented love, desire and attachment.

- Divine Love is vast, like an infinite ocean. It is something that must be experienced rather than just talked about.

We hope you would study carefully the points made by Swami and reflect on them. Remember, Arjuna got the Divine teaching only once and humanity is trying to get so much out of that one teaching. However, now in this Kali Age, the Lord is repeating again and again His Divine Message for our personal benefit, but are we devoting enough time to reflect upon and understand the vital importance of His teachings?

We seem to have so much time for so many things but have we got a minute for God?! Has not Swami said how we should spend time? Think about it!
