Perfect Boss


There were about 70 scientists working on a very hectic project. All of them were really frustrated due to the pressure of work and the demands of their boss but everyone was loyal to him and did not think of quitting their job.

One day, one scientist came to his boss and told him, "Sir, I have promised my children that I will take them to the exhibition going on in our township so I want to leave the office at 5:30 pm."

His boss replied, "OK, You're permitted to leave the office early today."

The Scientist started working. He continued his work after lunch. As usual, he got involved to such an extent that he looked at his watch only when he felt he was close to completion. The time was 8.30 PM.

Suddenly he remembered the promise he had made to his children.

He looked for his boss but he was not there. Having told him in the morning himself, he closed everything and left for home. Deep within himself, he was feeling guilty for having disappointed his children. He reached home. The children were not there.

His wife alone was sitting in the hall and reading magazines. The situation was explosive; any talk would boomerang on him. His wife asked him, "Would you like to have coffee or shall I straight away serve dinner if you are hungry?"

The man replied, "If you would like to have coffee, I too will have but what about the children?"

Hi wife replied, "You don't know? Your boss came here at 5.15 PM and has taken the children to the exhibition."

What had really happened was ... The boss who granted him permission was observing him working seriously at 5.00 PM. He thought to himself, this person will not leave the work, but if he has promised his children they should enjoy the visit to exhibition. So he took the lead in taking them to exhibition.

The boss does not have to do it every time. But once it is done, loyalty is established. That is why all the scientists at Thumba continued to work under their boss even though the stress was tremendous.

By the way, can you hazard a guess as to who the boss was?

He was none other than the mastermind behind India 's successful nuclear weapons and missiles program - Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, Former President of India.

Sai Darshan, Part 2 - 84


Knowledge



Every human being on this earth is on a separate spiritual journey. There are no two that are similar. Thus, we have no right to judge others and no one has the right to judge us. It is only between God and the individual...

Vedic Texts


For the proper utilization of time, which is Divine, the Vedic texts laid down basic injunctions for mankind.  Among these, foremost are 'Sathyam Dharmam Chara' (Speak the Truth; Follow Righteousness).


(Sanathana Sarathi, May 1995, pg 130)

Treasures Of The Heart


Every child born into the world is a new thought of God,
an ever-fresh and radiant possibility.
- Kate Douglas Wiggin


As a child, I may have read stories about explorers sailing the seas and finding sunken treasure.  Then I daydreamed about myself going on such an adventure.  Perhaps back then, finding priceless treasures seemed possible for me.

I can recapture that same feeling of wonderful possibilities by remembering that treasures of the heart, the greatest treasures I can ever hope to receive, are already within me.  My treasure chest contains emotional strength and well-being, endless energy, and even more of God's blessings.

With such treasures of the heart as my own, I believe all things are possible for me.  I move forward in fulfilling my hopes and dreams, and I live my life knowing that I am blessed by God - now and forever.


God's treasures await me!


(From : 'Daily Word' magazine by Silent Unity, a world wide prayer ministry)  

Are There Angels


Are there angels here beside us as we journey life's winding road,
Sent from heaven here to guide us along
future paths unknown?

I saw an angel in my dream with an
iridescent smile,
raven hair, delicate wings and a
warm angelic style. 
She bore a sweet resemblance to
someone I used to know,
but the era had lapsed, long since passed, 
for the winds of time do blow.
She told me of a heavenly land, a
paradise she claimed,
that awaits the souls of everyone who
worships God's name.
She showed me living waters baring
life of endless flow,
unconditional love for our master above
a place where streets are paved in gold.
And when my dream came to an end she
kissed me tenderly,
whispered we'll soon meet again when
God feels it's meant to be.
In the morning I awakened to the 
dawning of the day,
with my spirit a glow for I'd been 
kissed by a rose,
in this dream I'll cherish till my
dying day.

Yes angels walk beside us however
unbelievable it seems,
sent from heaven here to guide us
even in our dreams.

Point Of View


Man has to realize his divinity and look at all Nature from the Divine point of view.  Instead, man looks at everything only from the mundane point of view.  The body is indeed perishable, but it is also the means for realizing the imperishable Truth.


(Sanathana Sarathi, May 1995, pg 114)

Sai Darshan II, Part 2 - Message 81


Sai Darshan II, Part 2 - Message 81


 There is no work
That is too small or insignificant
For God does not measure
The outcome... the profits or
The earnings of the work...
As long as one maintains
His inner peace
And keeps himself steadfast
Always devoted to His work
Such a one
Will one day make
His ordinary task...
A gigantic gift... to the world...


(Extract from : Sai Darshan II written by Seema M Dewan)

O LORD, TAKE MY LOVE

O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
