Author Quotes

The whole world is One Single Tree; the different countries are it's branches; its root is God; human beings are the flowers; happiness is the fruit; self-realization is the sweet juice therein.

The whole world will be transformed into Sathya Sai Organization and Sathya Sai will be installed in the hearts of one and all.

The wise are those who know the self.

The word ?Sutra? means that which, through a few words, reveals vast meanings. The Sutras discuss contrary points of view in order to remove all possible doubts about the validity and meaning of the sacred texts. The word ?Mimamsa?, as used in ancient Indian philosophy, means the conclusion arrived at after inquiry and investigation, the inference adopted as correct after deep consideration of possible doubts and alternatives. The Vedas deal with two concepts: Dharma (Righteous actions) and Brahma (God). The Purva Mimamsa deals with Dharma or performing the rites and rituals in daily life in a righteous manner. The Uttara Mimamsa deals with Brahma (God) and its emphasis is on Jnana (experiential wisdom).

The word Avatar means descent. It is not coming down from the peak of a mountain or the top story of a tall building. It is a descent from the state of the Atma to the level of the body.

The year becomes new, the day becomes holy, when you sanctify it by spiritual discipline, not otherwise.

There are certain habits. Members of the Organization should have some good habits. Jaisa Anna, Vaisa Mann - as is the food, so is the thought. As is the feeling so is the experience - Yad Bhavam Tad Bhavati. So we have to partake of food in a proper way. It is because of food that we have all sorts of durguna, duralochana and duschinta- bad habits, bad thoughts. So give up smoking. Also eschewing drinking. This alcoholism and smoking are ruining your health. One without health cannot achieve any small thing. Meat eating is also very bad. If you partake animal food, you will develop animal qualities. As is the food, so is the head. So you should have regulation of food. Then the fourth one is gambling. Those in the spiritual field should immediately give up smoking, drinking, meat eating and gambling. All these four are bad qualities.

There comes a time, however, that you need to move on if your grief turns into negativity. If we examine negativity, we see that it utilizes the VERY same process as Positive Affirmations, except in the reverse!

There IS a difference between ?grieving? and negativity. When you lose someone you love, there is a natural grieving process that must be gone through. Do not deny yourself your expression of grief.

There is considerable change in human outlook that I have to bring about. No one can stop Me or deter Me from fulfilling these tasks for which I have come, namely the establishment of the one unchanging Truth. In this task, you have a part to play.

There is no compulsive rule that incarnations should occur only on earth and in human form. Any place, any form, can be chosen by God. Whichever place, whatever form, promotes the purpose of fulfilling the yearning of the devotee, that place and that form are chosen by the will of God. God is above and beyond the limits of time and space. He is beyond all characteristics and qualities, no list of such can describe Him completely.

There is no desire in Sai. Where is the space for desire in Sai? Everything is already Mine! Sai does not think. My will is instantly realized. Whatever it may be, it immediately appears.

The tree can teach you forbearance and tolerance. It offers shade to all, irrespective of age, sex or religion, nationality or status. It helps with fruit and shade even to the foe who lays his axe on its trunk! The dog can teach you a lesson in Faith, Self- less service and the process of Dedication.

There is no limitation to My Power. There is no reason to limit or confine My Power and My Grace to any one place. Infinite Power and Infinite Grace are present in My hands. To state these things with regard to Myself becomes necessary at times.

The reasoning faculty must be employed to distinguish between the limited and the unlimited, the Temporary and the Eternal.

The refinement of an individual is measured by the yardstick of sense control.

The role of a Sanyasi (monk) can be likened to a species of fish. The fish moves around in the depth of the lake; it will not be stationary at one spot. And while moving around, the fish eats up worms and the eggs of pests, thus cleansing the water. So too, the Sanyasi should always be on the move, journeying into the far corners of the land. His duty is to cleanse the society of evil by his example and precept. He must transform it by his teachings into a society free from vice and wickedness.

The root is education and the fruit is virtue.

The same current activates all.

The secret of happiness is not doing what one likes to do but in liking what one has to do.

The secret of perfect health lies in keeping the mind always cheerful - never worried, never hurried, never borne down by any fear, thought or anxiety.

The service of man is the only means by which you can serve God.

The spiritual exercise of service is quite distinct. In service, you devote all your energy and attention to the task at hand, for it is a dedicated task. You forget your body and ignore its demands. You set aside your individuality and its prestige and perquisites. You pluck your ego by its roots and cast it away. You give up your status, your conceit, your name and form and all that they demand from others. This process makes the mind pure.

The synthesis of pure, calming food is breathing pure air, listening to good sounds, looking at good sights, and touching pure objects.

The teachers of tomorrow are the students of today.
