Health Food Snacks From Sukshma Baba Discourses - SUNDAY 28-06-2015
                 

Lord is the embodiments of Peace. All forms are His. Truth is Being, Awareness and Bliss or to put it another ways. Goodness, Truth, and Beauty. Also called Sat, Chit, Ananda. Wisdom is seeing unity in creation. The mind sees multiplicity. Ignorance is multiplicity. This comes from ego and attachment and this is called intoxication. For example, a drunk will see two instead of one. Everyone is an embodiment of Atma. Some people call themselves "Sai devotees" but they are not. The reason being they see differences, which is based on ego-disease perception. Swami gave an analogy. A drunk went to an MD. He told the doctor I see double. What can I do? The MD says I have the same problems. This is a joke. It means that the blind are leading the blind. Devotees and leaders are causing restlessness. Don't follow the mind or body. Follow the heart. The mind and the body are intermingled. Mind should listen to the heart. He gave an analogy. There is a driver in a car and a passenger and they are moving.. The car is the body. The mind is the driver. The passage is the heart. The driver should listen to the passenger of the car and therefore, the car will go in the right direction. Master the mind, Be a master mind. Some Singapore person asked a question. We want to work for Baba and people speak against this. What is the problem? The mind is contrary. They are not listening to their heart. If different students ask the same question to a teacher, the teacher will give the same answer. This is truth. Differences arise because of the mind. The mind is full of ego. Another example: You have a committee, and they are serving tea. If only one cup remains, what do you do? Who will drink the tea? If the president says all are equal, there is only one Atma, therefore I will drink the since it doesn't matter. This is selfishness. It is only a convenient argument for selfish logic. What should be the response? One possibility is that they should all have shared the tea equally. The problem is people are falsely claiming they are using the heart, but they are being in the mind. Heart and mind can get intermingled. Sometimes the heart speaks and sometimes the mind. If you have two drivers of the car then you will get confusion. If you follow the mind it creates confusion. You must use pure sacred vision. In this there is Reflection, Reaction and Resound. Look into a mirror, smile and you get a smile back. Accusing others for your suffering is not right. You cause it yourself. Eliminate ego and attachment and you get joy. Heart is helping others for the general good.

Follow the master; Face the Devil which is ego and attachment. Fight to the end and Finish the game. What is the game? There are two teams in a game of football. The heart team which stands for selflessness and the mind team which is selfishness. You must conquer the ego and attachment. The sense requires mastery by the mind. The master of the body car is the heart. The driver obeys the heart and you go in the correct direction. You have four wheels. The brake is the control, the horn is the chanting of the name, the petrol is love and the light is wisdom. God is the master and the passenger is the heart. Follow the heart and be guided in the correct direction. Swami gave a story of a noble soul. This noble soul never tells and untruth. His goal is nonviolence. He lived in a hut and heard a noise. There was an animal there and a hunter chasing this animal. The animals asked the noble soul for protection and he said ok, I will protect you. The animal hid in the hut. The hunter came and said where is the animal? There was a dilemma for the sadaka. What was he to say? He prayed to God. He had an idea then. The eye can see, but the eye cannot speak and the mouth can speak but the mouth can't see. And he left it that way and thus was able to protect the animal. The body which is strength and the mind which is intelligence should listen to the heart. Thought, word, and deed are the three that work together in a great soul.. Heart is unity. There is no attachment or grief. Differences come from the mind. Selfless love is unity. Develop purity of heart and the mind should follow the heart. Devotees ask questions, but to all questions there is one answer, Love all serve all. Chant the name of Rama and do service with harmony and unity. Swami says embodiments of love, not embodiments of body.

Sri B.N. Narasimha Murthy's Talk
Humility And Open Mindedness Required To Connect With The Divinity

Narrow minded people think this one belongs to me and that one is 'other'; for a broad minded person the whole world is His family. This was particularly demonstrated by Swami during these 18-day tour. Sri Narasimha Murthy explained this with the help of the following Sanskrit sloka:
Ayam Udaara charithaanaamthu vasudaiva kutumbakam ... A voice without form arousing people to express Love & Compassion.

In a funny story an elephant was crossing a dilapidated wooden bridge and a flea sitting on the elephant claimed 'i made you cross the bridge'. We, (five/six of us who accompanied Swami) are like fleas sitting on the elephant. It was like circumambulation of the world. Shanmukha went round the world. But we went round the world with Lord Shiva Himself!

Swami was fascinated at the nice interior decorations and aesthetically arranged things in a devotee's house and asked one of the devotee from MDH to take photographs and do similar decorations in MDH! (we devotees recollect how Swami in 1940s looking through the window of a devotee's house, fascinated by the lights and decorations of Mysore Maharaja's palace and told that He would have similar lighting arrangements in Prasanthi Nilayam - of course this fascination was at human level!)

He recalled Swami's prescription for attaining moksha and mergence in Him: the one and only way is like Yasoda following little Krishna's butter & curd smeared foot prints, you too follow My foot prints - left foot print Selfless Love, right foot print Selfless Service.

He quoted Arnold Toynbee to explain relation between scientific development and spiritual development.
He also mentioned how scientists are easily getting connected with Divinity due to their humility and openmindedness.

He mentioned how Swami emphatically asked, even non Sai devotees also, to practise Human Values.

He mentioned how a devotee is meticulously practising J.O.Y ( Jesus first, others next and you last) in his daily life. Spacious and best of rooms for Swami, larger rooms for guests and small rooms for own family members.

He recalled Swami's appreciation for the Tustin book stall and Divine written approval given to Cowans to start the same. (participants got inspired by this news and resolved to augment their book stalls and libraries in their Sai Centers back home in their respective countries)

He told about the Divine plan to start four Ashrams - in Italy, Croatia, Malaysia and USA. After Bhagawan's announcement a few weeks ago in Malaysia, a devotee already offered 100 acres for the Malaysian Ashram (applause)

He told that only 30% of the task was done and remaining 70% of the Mission is happening now.

Nice Bhajans are being sung and Vedam is being chanted with correct diction in many places in different countries.

He narrated about nice presentations by scientists in pre-conference of Science for Society.

While talking to an intimate group Swami said 'My sankalpa is vajra sankalpa' - My Divine Will is as strong as a diamond. He also revealed to that group how HE is going to do significant things in the area of rural development.

Swami also enquired them about arrangements for the WORLD YOUTH CONFERENCE-NOV 2015.

He mentioned how Raipur Hospital is doing excellent seva and hitting headlines.

He narrated how Swami is taking personal care in shaping the 'Sathya Sai Premamrutam' ( the new Bhajan Hall to accommodate over 5000 devotees) right from selecting type of chandeliers and how Swami is enquiring about the facilities for the congregations of devotees arriving for 90th Birth Day celebrations. He concluded with the observation: with 1/1000th part of Swami's energy we will achieve our life's goal. (He spoke from 6.45 pm to 7.20 pm, and then prayed to Swami to bless us with His Divine Discourse)

Health Food Snacks From Sukshma Baba Discourses - TUESDAY 16-06-2015
                 

The Lord has His eyes and ears everywhere, His hands and legs everywhere, His head everywhere He envelopes everything. The Universe shines forth in the Lord. THe Lord shines forth in That Universe. The sweet relationship between God and the World is inseparable this is the word of Sai the word of Truth. Devotees, Embodiments of Love ..... God is mingled in this Universe and in God the Universe shines forth. Where there is an object there only you can see its reflection also. Therefore when you see the world you should know that God is somewhere here. For the object God this world is a reflection. We should understand the truth wherever there is reflection there is the object. There cannot be a reflection without the object. Therefore on the object that is God world is the Shadow. Where is Shadow? Though He cannot be seen with physical eyes or heard with physical ears though we cannot know Him with our physical senses the fact that world exists is enough proof of the existence of God. There is no place without God. He is like the wind or air which is omnipresent. He is everywhere, though you cannot see it or listen to it.
All these people have come from India to America. It is utter foolishness for anyone to think that Indians breathe different air and Americans breathe different air. The air in both India and America is one and the same. All beings inhale and exhale the air and that is why they live. The air does not know any difference. It benefits everyone equally. The air keeps blowing selflessly to benefit everyone the old and strong and even the birds and bees. The rivers also flow selflessly to benefit others. No river drinks its own water for itself.The water floews selflessly giving pure drinking water to quench. No tree eats its own fruit for itself. The trees give fruits to satisfy the hunger of others. Based on these simple facts the scriptures say the human body is given to help and serve others. For the selfless nature of God, the selfless nature of mother nature is proof. Therefore wherever there is God there exists nature. And man lives in the nature. Understand the relationship between Man God Nature. This nature is a limb of God. Man is a limb of Nature. Man is apart of nature, nature is apart of God. That is why all the three co-exist and live within one another. To the extent that man behaves in a selfless way nature outside of him will apear selfless.
As is the vision so is the world. When man is filled with ego and attachment the same things get reflected in nature. The kind of external catastrophes that we see in Nature today the root cause is mans mind/selfishnees. Nature is nothing but reflection, reaction, resound of what happens in man. The external world also reflect the selfishness within man. When Divinity emerges within mans Heart the whole world will become Divine. God is Divine, God is Selfless, Nature is Divine, Nature is Selfless. Because man is not acting Divine man is not acting selfless all kinds of catastrophe is hitting mankind. There will be peace only when man is in harmony, within man and outside. The peace will spread all over the world when mans nature and natures nature and Gods nature become selfless. Everything has to become selfless. Until then the world will be filled with catastrophes. All the kinds of dangers that man faces is because of man not God. When man fills his mind with Love his heart with purity then the reflection of God will be seen everywhere. Because of mans selfishness thinks everybody around is selfish.
Krishna told duryodhana to find one good man and bring him here. Duryodhana bowed down to Krishna and assured Him that he would go round and find someone. Krishna commanded Dharmaraja to go and get one bad person. Immediately they both went out. After some time they both came to Krishna. Duryodhana said I went round the whole world and couldnt find a good person. Dharmaraja said he went round the world and couldnt find one bad person. In the same world one couldnt find a good person and another couldnt find a good person. How is this possible. Wat was inside Duryodhana and Dharmaraja got reflected, it came as a reaction and resound from outside world. If we have love in ourself we will find love everywhere. People come and tell Swami there is no love in the world. They keep telling Swami that only He has love. It is true that I have love with me. If you come and tell me there is no love in the world that is because there is no love in yourself. When you develop love in yourself you will find love everywhere. It is the same sun that gets reflected in all the lakes. There are not different suns. One sun shines everywhere. Maybe you may think that there are different suns because you see them in different waters, It is the same Divine Love which pervades and reflected in every human. But in dirty water you dont find reflection clearly. In our water you can see the suns reflection clearly. The reflection depends on the water not the sun. When you say that the world is full of negative things it is just your reflection being reflected in the world. But a great person, saintly person, every person looks saintly and through a wicked person every person is wicked. Only when you develop love within yourself the whole world will transform into love. All the time I address the devotees as the embodiments of Love and embodiments of Atma. Did you question yourselves why is it that we do not experience the glory, the Divine principle within ourselves. What Swami says is Truth. Even after He is telling us the Truth and we are not able to experience it. We are the reason. Only when we develop pure love within our hearts will we experience the love everywhere. Divinitity is not coming into ourselves from somehere else. It is a part of ourselves.
Here is an example: In every iron piece there is the power of magnetism. Even when the piece of iron is kept near a magnet the magnetism does not appear in the iron because of the rust and dust. The rust and dust of ego and attachment keep the iron away from magnetism. It is foolishness to think that magnetism does not have the power. Similarly for a man, because of his own wrong qualities, he says that God does not exist and this is a big mistake. Krishna was loved by all the Gopikas and at the same time dislike by Kamsa. The reason why Kamsa hated Krishna was because of the ego and attachment of Kamsa. But Gopikas with their pure heart could recognise God within Krishna. When we have purity within ourselves we also see God as pure. Similarly the nature which is a reflection of God also looks pure to us. If you experience all around you negativity it is because of the negativity in you. First and foremost you must transform your thougths into positive thoughts. I am man is Half Truth. Complete Truth is I AM God. I AM not animal. Only when we get rid of qualities of ego and attachment we can find humaness within ourselves. When you take the human being to the Divine incarnation which is the magnet the same magnet will enter into the human. One who knows God becomes God. Because of the proximity to the magnet, Magnetism emerges in the piece of iron. Based on this fact the first step is Satsangh - good company. When you get into good company you become good. That is why it is said good company leads us to detachment. When an iron piece mingles with air and water it will be full of rust and dust. But when the same iron piece gains the proximity of the magnet it also becomes a magnet. When man is in this worldliness which is air and water there is selfishness. When man get into the company of good people and attains the company of the Avatar he also experiences the Divinity by getting rid of all his negativity. Why are all of you gathered here. You are all like the pieces of iron. The Divinity of magnetism is latent in you it is not potent. This God who has come here as a magnet has attracted all these iron pieces here. If many people did not come here it is because of the rust and dust within them. The magnet is nothing but the Love principle in the heart. Ego and attachment emerges from the human mind. Thats why i tell you not to follow the body the body is a water bubble. Today it is here tomorrow it becomes a part of the wave. Mind is full of selfishness and self interest. Dont not follow the mind. Mind is a mad monkey. But follow the heart as Heart is God. When we unerstand the truth of these statements then we will get proximity to God.
In America the people bring soup. The equal of soup is Rasam. If you ask for Rasam nobody will give you. If you want to drink the soup you need a spoon. You cant drink soup with a fork. Maybe with the help of the fork you can eat rice. For drinking soup you need spoon. In the same way if you want to understand God the mind can not understand. The words can not describe God the mind can not comprehend God. However much you talk about God or listen about God you will never experience God with external means. The same way as you cannot drink soup with a fork you cannot experience God with your mind. You can experience God with the spoon of your Heart. Water mixes water, air mixes air, fire mixes with fire, only love can mingle with love. When your love and My love combine together then the whole world will be full of love. All rain that comes down from the skies will join the ocean. The rain comes as drops but all the drops come together to become a river to merge into the ocean. As long as you become a river the water cannot merge in the ocean. A single drop gets soaked up by the earth and cannot get to the ocean. When all drops of water get together in unity the power of unity takes it to the ocean. Through good company we have to develop unity. I know that there will be alot of unity in bad company. In unity they steal things. If all of them work in Unity, one breaks the door the other brings things, other fellow puts in bags and other fellow takes and runs. ALL wrong things are done in Unity. But generally unity does not happen amongst good people. And when some good work happens and some service happens each asking for acts of service. The so call leaders and because of their arrogance they rule over others. Such service is not service at all. I dont need such people. I want those people who work with humility, devotion and faith. These days people serve for 20 minute and their reports and presentations last for more than 1 hour. Such kinds of service is usless. Service done with recognition, name and fame as the goal is not service at all. We have to do selfless service. Only when you have selfless love can you do selfless service. Theefore you have to develop selfless love. Selfless love is the object. Selfless service is its reflection. If selfless service is happening then you should know that selfless love is happening also. There is no need for me to demonstrate my presence or give any proof of my existence. In fact i did not come down for my sake only for yours.
When I was in the physical body i did everything for the devotees and today I do everything for the devotee. The body had deteriorated that it was like a bad old car. There is no way that we can undertake a long journey ina bad old car therefore i had given up that car and took up a new car. Now I can travel really fast and reach really fast. I dont have body consciousness. These days people keep living on in their body through medications - they want to prolong their life. Because of body consciousness / attachement they dont want to give up the body. But Swami doesnt have any attachment to the body. Therefore I gave up that body and took up this body and can do all kinds of tasks. My work has become very easy and I am doing it everywhere. I AM very very happy. Wherever there is selfless service I will install myself there. Therefore all of you should think that all of your bodies hands eyes are Gods and everything is Divine. Prashanthi Nilayam is not somewhere else it is in your heart. Involve yourself in selfless service with selfless love. Only when we involve ourselves in selfless service with selfless love we can understand We ARE God.
One boy asked me Who are You ? I AM GOD ! What is God? God is Selflessness. God is Purity. How to know You? You want to know me ? BECOME ME ! If you want to know you also have to become Swami. Only when you become me you will trully know me. KNOW ME. How to become Swami. Become Selfless and you will become Swami. S.A.I - Service Adoration Illumination. First is Service. That is the path of action. Adoration is the path of devotion. Illumination is the path of wisdom. Only through the path of action can you attain devotion and wisdom. SAI. First do selfless service. Only then you can understand SAI.

QUESTIONS:
1.Person is asking that there are many miracles happening in Chennai and different places. If Swami does more miracles then the devotion will also go up (chuckle). So swamis answer is this ...
Is it because of the miracles devotion is going up or because of devotion that miracles is going up? You mus ask that question first. It is the devotion that is manisfesting the miracles not the miracles manifesting the devotion. But what is devotion ? It is not only singing bhajans and engaging in all kinds of discussions. It is acting. Action in selfless service.

2.Future of America. Is there a special mission for Americans?
Swami: What is future. Future is inside the present. Present is the seed Future is the tree. It is the seed that I am leaving behind today to be sown well in the soil of your hearts to be watered with love and protected with care and is allowed to grow under my grace it will definitly grow into a huge tree for the future producing many many fruits to be shared with those who need. America definitly has a big role to play in Swami's mission. What is America ? AMerica is not this land mass or water or air that flows. America is about Americans. It is the people who define a country. If all of your become loving and selfless you will change the destiny of not only America but the whole world. America is a powerful nation with many people and much intellect but if it is not channelled properly it will lead to destruction. If channeled well the mighty river can be controlled as a dam and used for good work. AMerica power, knowledge and intellect has to be channeled by the way of selfless service. That is the responsability i Leave behind. How can you bring about this transformation? It will happen when you start doing and being what Swami is asking you. You Be, you Do, you See, you Tell that is way you can bring transformation in attitude to your fellow Americans. If Americans change it will bring alot of good to the rest of the world. America is very very powerful and this power is not used in the right way for the right purpose can be destructive. To the devotee's of America this is my command/will/wish that they all should live their lives in accordance to swamis principle of selfless service and love. Seeing u people as ideal examples the others will change the whole nation will change and if america changes it will do a whole good for the rest of the world. I need not tell you, you are all aware that as America is capable of making the rest of the world peaceful so is it also capable of taking peace from other people and leaving them in pieces. It is up to you as to what you want to do with this seed that I leave behind. Seed, if kept in the cupboard and will become useless yet if put in soil and nurtured will give fruits tomorrow. Practice selfless love and service and you can change your destiny of the nation and the world.

3. How do we develop our inner voice so that we can receive clear guidance from you?
The inner voice is always there. It is the noise around it that is too much that drowns the voice. Mind is the one that makes all the noise. Desires attachments are the noise. In the noise of the mind the voice of the heart is not heard. Otherwise i am always speaking to you. But as you are not paying attention to what I AM saying you are listenting to the mind, you are not able to hear me. If you can control your desires and change your selfish desires to selfless desires and make your mind pure, calm , full of silence, you will hear the voice that comes from your heart. In a room if everyone is silent you can hear the speaker. If everybody is talking you cannot hear the speaker. Reduce the noise of your mind you do not have to work on increasing the voice of the heart just reduce the noise of the mind. The voice is always there. The more you become selfless the more you become silent. The more you are silent the more you can hear the SAI within.

Health Food Snacks From Sukshma Baba Discourse - SUNDAY 07-06-2015
                 

Two earlier speakers gave discourses and their discourses could be summarized as follows.
You should present Swami with the following questions. You called us here, now what? You can only come here if Swami Wants. You are divine like Him. If you surrender, then you don't plan your life.

The following notes are from Swami's speech.

Om Sri Sai Ram. I repeat as He speaks. I salute that Divine Master. Who is beyond the three gunas. He is the one that activates everything in this universe.

People who know God think He is beyond the three gunas. He is beyond feelings and beyond words. The Vedas say your mind can't describe or contemplate God. If you want to drink water and your jug has holes in it, it is no good. The mind will never offer itself to God. The mind thinks selfishness and never the welfare of others. You can't drink with a fork, only with a spoon. God is beyond duality. Mind is duality.

There are two dualities in the Mind - Ego and Attachment. People pray to God. I want peace. In this sentence there are three words. I want peace. I and want can never experience peace. Peace is Prashanti. Mind cannot understand peace. We can realize only this through the heart. God cannot be comprehended through the mind. Air combines with air. Mind is no match for God. Mind cannot be used to understand God. God is beyond EGO and attachment, Mind can't do that. Selfless love can realize God. Rust is ego and dust is attachment. If these are on the magnets the magnet can't work. You cannot experience God because Ego and attachment stay in the mind. People won't find God there in the mind. Because of the mind you can't see God. To think because the mind can't find God, therefore, God doesn't exist is foolish. When man eats a dish, he will know what it is. If the tongue is unhealthy, it lacks the ability to taste, and then the tongue won't taste the sweet. Similarly, you can't taste the bliss of service if you don't do it with an empty mind, which means no mind.

Teachers you have to do, then you can tell! Man's speech doesn't do it. Man acts like he knows everything. But God knows everything and says nothing. God is humility. When we do we learn. Listening and seeing God is not enough. You can describe a good meal, but the stomach will not be filled. The stomach is filled only if it eats and digests food. This is why I tell you to practice and do. Then you will experience. You will enjoy the bliss, when you go and get involved in service. Transformation comes from service. If you just work and make a living it is a waste of time. There are important things for every human being. These three must work together in perfect service. The three things are body (hand), mind (head) and heart. Do perfection in your actions. Try to do things perfectly. You are to do your best and leave the rest, because you do all things for God. It is ignorance to say I will do nothing and then tell God you do it. It is foolish to think you can do no work before your exam. You must work and put in afford and do studies perfectly and become a karma yogi, like Janaka. In humans all three things: hands, head and hands must work perfectly.

When Rama had to cross over the ocean, the monkeys were scared. Hanuman was ready. That is true devotion. He knew he could do it. Hanuman said let me rest in the middle. He saw an island that was really a demoness. This demoness ate people's shadows and once she did this they were drawn into her mouth and she could eat them. She agreed to give Hanuman shelter if he could fill one condition. Hanuman had to get into her mouth and get out. Hanuman knew if he got into her mouth she would eat him. So he prayed to Rama to show him a way to get rest and not be eaten. Then he saw a way. He became big and entered, and then became small like an atom and went out. Now you give me rest. Her remark was that I really wanted to test you, now take rest on my head and then go. Because of devotion he got intelligence. Mukti and liberation result from the three gunas working together, that is head, heart and hand and then offered to God. Mind filled with love that is a heart. That is the foundation. True devotion is a mind that is not fickle. Water moves heat moves. A steady mind makes you steady. A Body equals strength, a mind equals intelligence, and heart devotion.

Chant the Gayatree mantra every day. Om is equal to God, formless. Manifestation first appeared as sound. AUM is A for body, U for mind, throat chakra, and M for heart. Swami then gave an explanation of the Gayatri mantra. Please look it up in your books I couldn't write it all down. All I got was: I am accepting the origin of everything. I am contemplating on light and grant me light. Mind should get the light and wisdom. You say Shanti three times at the end of Gayatri. These three shantis refer to body, mind and heart. The mind is passion and the heart is purity and you must control passion with purity. Do the Gayatri 21 times every morning. Swami told both students and devotees to do it. The Day is divided into three sections, eight hours for each. The hours from 4 am to 8 am is Sathya (for worship and adoration) at this time. The hours between 8 am and 4 pm is rajastic for activity, playing and study. Between the hours 4pm to 8pm is sathwic again and this is for worship again. The hours between 8pm to 4 pm is tamasic, do not study at this time, you must sleep. Demons work at night. You are humans, work during the day only. You must do things at the right time. Dusk to dawn is the time for angels.

In referring to teachers, if you correct others, then you have to do it first. Teachers, without doing have not right to teach. When you do the Gayatri take your time. You must contemplate the meaning of Gayatri when you do it. When students do work they do it mindlessly, this means they do it without paying attention. You must be aware of everything you do. There is no use doing something and not being able to recall what you just did. When you eat you later forget what you ate and this is not good. When you chant the Gayatri, do the proper intonation. When you chant properly, it has an impact on you. Do this in all campuses. Very Happy.

Health Food Snacks From Sukshma Baba Discourse - THURSDAY 04-06-2015
                 

You can learn all kinds of knowledge. Fight battles and win. Be born as a king and rule. You can give in charity. You can count clouds in the sky. There are many species on Earth. You may reach the Moon. But is it possible to turn your mind and senses inward and reach that state of love. Mind must go inward not outward. I address you as Bliss. Why are we not able to reach Divinity. Mind is the cause of bondage. If you base your mind on God then you reach Divinity If your mind focuses on the world you become worldly. An analogy was given: When air is in a vessel then there is not water. When the "I" is in your heart you will not experience Sai. When Sai is in your heart you will not experience "I". Because of body consciousness you don't take spirituality seriously and think you are humans.

You must do first floor thoroughly first. Then go to second floor. Move from I to We to He! Jesus first, Others Next and yourself last (J.O.Y). Man thirsts for bliss. Where does bliss come from. Bliss comes from within. Humans turn to others instead. Without understanding man's nature man goes after wealth. Man is only looking for temporary happiness, not permanent joy. Your Foundation is self-confidence. When you develop faith and "I am Sai" and not the body, then you develop self-confidence. Nothing can harm the atma, remain equal-minded iin spite of circumstances.

True devotion is to remain peaceful. You breath the following all the time, I am That. Man is born crying. The breath says So Hum. I am That. All this is God. The Vedas tells us we are all Divine. Vedas are God's wisdom. We have to believe in the Vedas. I am man is 1/2 truth. I am not animal is full truth. But ultimately truth is "I am Divine". Atma pervades all beings.

An analogy was given about dust, rust and a magnet. This Divine incarnation is like a magnet. Rust is ego and dust is something else and these block the magnetism of Divinity. Not by pilgrimages and not by study of scriptures will you get God. Only by loving service. God's love is pure, eternal, and permanent. Love principle is Eternal and it is not possible to build a temple on a weak foundation. Indian culture is based on love. Love is a strong foundation. Love and service are the two faces of the same coin. For humans values are essential. Man becomes God when he lives in love and service. These are two powerful wings love and service. Therefore practice these two. Love is not enough. Service should follow. Serve everyone. When a child stops his play and goes to his mother for food can the mother say I have love for you, but I don't want to do this service. This is attachment Not love. A true mother prepares food before the child even finishes his playing. It is there waiting for him. Duty without love is Not the right thing. Duty with Love is fine. But love without Duty is Bliss and Divine.

You must look at your own rust and dust. To criticize God is not right. Ignorance must be eliminated. We have impurities, therefore, we can't experience God. Another analogy was given : A mother keeps a child for nine months in her womb. What proof can the mother give the child that she is the mother. Love and service tells the child only. Subbamma took care of Swami. While she was still alive she asked me to put water and Tulsi leaf in her mouth at the time of death. She had died and I was not there. But I did my duty. When I returned I saw her and revived her and served it and gave her, her wishes. My bliss is when a child serves all and gets bliss. You have to work for others to experience bliss.

When you blame and criticize others, you blame God. Be broad mindedness. Santana Dharma is an eternal religion Your behavior is the proof of my existence. Compassionate words and compassionate actions must be turned into service. This is Swami's bliss. If you have a question to Swami you can surely ask me and I will answer. But better is to ask all questions inside and to get all the answers inside yourself. In your meditation Swami will give an answer to your questions. Mind is like a radio. You must tune your mind to listen to God. If you tune your mind toward the world you will get worldly. That is why we say mind is bondage. Reduce the noise around you (the world of desires) then you will hear the voice of God. Reduce selfishness and do service. Follow the heart. Prema is study. Service is practice. Demonstrate your Divinity. When you read a book practice at least one sentence. I tell you the same things because you do not practice.
