Do not develop craze for acquiring degrees, going abroad and amassing wealth. The true wealth is within you. Never forsake your motherland. For the simple reason that your mother is not beautiful, can you forsake her and consider another lady who is beautiful as your mother? Preferring a foreign land to one’s own motherland amounts to doing the same.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
