Words of God: The Sai Avatar on Himself - Part 4 "How to use the AVATAR"
..... The way in which the Avathar has to be used for one's liberation and
uplift is: watch His every step, observe His actions, and activities,
follow the guiding principle of which His life is an elaboration. Mark His
love, His Compassion, His Wisdom, try to bring them into your own life.
Man has become artificial, crooked, twisted out of his normal shape. He
has left behind the simple natural ways and made his mind a lumber-room
for ideas, worries, anxieties and terrors. He can live on very much less,
with much greater joy for himself and others. If only he remembers that he
is a treasure chest with the Divine Spark in it he will be more loving
and more useful. God incarnates for the revival of Dharma (Righteousness)
which includes morality, truth, virtue, love and host of other qualities
that uphold the communities of man as well as the individual. The other
purposes usually given, such as serving the devoted, destroying the
wicked, re-establishing the sacred tradition-these are all secondary. For,
he who is righteous will be guarded from harm by righteousness itself; he
who is unrighteous will fall into disaster through the evil that he
perpetrates. The one task includes all else.
