The Soul

Unless each one is respected, whatever his status, his economic condition, his Spiritual development, there can be no peace and no happiness in life. This respect can be aroused only by the conviction that the same Soul that is in you is playing the role of the other person. See that Soul in others, feel that they too have hunger, thirst, yearning and distress you have; develop sympathy and the anxiety to serve and be useful.

(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God,  sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)

VEDA 273

People look for short cuts in everything, even in spirituality. But, surprisingly, spirituality does have a short cut. There is no need to wander here and there. God is residing in your heart. Turn your vision inward. You can see God instantly. This is the easiest path.

Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 42

Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 42

At the end of his life
A soul reached the feet of God
And asked,
"Dear Master,
Will I from birth
Find a place
In Your feet forever?"
The Lord replied,
"Dearest child,
Did you at every moment
Remember that
I alone love you?"
The devotee sobbed as he spoke,
"Dear Master,
I did at first
 When I was young
And had no burdens
Upon my shoulders -
But as life
Brought to me
Its many responsibilities
I remembered You
Then at other times
I felt I was alone...
And did not have the strength
To remember You then."
The Lord wiped the tears
Of His child and spoke,
"Dear one
You have believed
Once again
In your effort
And have forgotten
That the effort
Was nothing
But My Grace...
You have believed
More in the love
Of your kith and kin
And suffered
The miseries
Of their limitations...
You forgot to
Sustain them
In My unconditional love...
You believed
In your worldly riches
That gave you
Momentary security...
You forgot, My child
That these riches
Were merely a test...
If you had refused them
Even for a moment
The riches from My kingdom
Would have poured
Upon you...
You believed
That you were the one
In control of your life
You forgot
My eternal promise
That "I am the slave
Of the one
That makes Me
His beloved -
And to that one
I shall never forsake -
That one that
Remembers My name
And loses the consciousness
Of all else
That one's life
I Myself shall honor
And I shall place
Upon My lap -
His difficulties, his miseries...
His pain... his responsibilities
I alone shall bear...
O devoted soul
You shall return
Back to the world
That you have loved
And I shall wait for you
Until you believe
And remember
That you are My beloved
And I am yours...
Until then, My promise remains
All you have to do
Is to remember it
And keep that promise of Mine
As your breath..."

Water flows from a higher level to the lower level.  God's grace too is like that.  It flows down to those who are bent with humility.

(From : Garland of 1008 Gems, Bhagawan Shri Sathya Sai Baba's Sayings)


"Oh, how beautiful, God, is the assurance of Your love and peace!"

My times in prayer stir up peace within me that nourishes me with serenity even in the most stressful times. How beautiful is the assurance of God's love and peace in every moment of my life!

Each prayer is a reunion of my conscious awareness with the presence of God. Each time I reach a total awareness of God, I feel a surge of peace. And the beauty of it all is that God is always present in me and in my life.

Allowing the healing, soothing flow of peace to roll over me, I relax and discover new energy and creativity. I am amazed that what seemed like such a challenge only moments before I prayed has been replaced by my understanding of a solution all in a moment of peaceful prayer.

"How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who announces peace."
- Isaiah 52:7

Be Confident

VEDA 272

Some people say they do not have time to think of God, but they waste hours together in mundane matters. Life becomes meaningless if you do not think of God. Body is gifted to make proper use of time. Body will be sanctified only when it is used for sacred activities.

(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God,  sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)

Ask Yourself

One man decided to reach for his dream. But he didn’t have enough strength to do it. So he turned to his mother:

'Mother, help me!'
'Darling, I would be glad to help you, but I don’t have it. And everything I have, I already gave to you…'

He asked a wise man:
'Master, tell me, where can I get strength?'

't is said that, it is on the Everest. But I couldn’t find anything there, except the snowy winds. And when I came back, the time was irretrievably lost…'

He asked the hermit:
'Holy Father, where to find the strength for realization of my dream?'

'In your prayers, my son. And if your dream is false, you will understand it and find peace in your prayers…'

The person asked everyone, but the only result of his searches was confusion.

'Why are you so confused?' asked an old man passing by.

–' have a dream, good man. But I don’t know where to find strength for its realization. I asked everyone, but there was no one who could help me.'

'No one?'  a light flashed in the old man’s eyes, 'And did you ask yourself?'

True victory can be won only by God's grace.

(From : Garland of 1008 Gems, Bhagawan Shri Sathya Sai Baba's Sayings)


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.
