"A lotus will grow only in water, not in a desert. Likewise, only where there is devotion, the heart is fertile to absorb and grow the plants of human values, namely sathya, dharma, shanthi, prema, ahimsa. Otherwise, only the cactus plants of kama, krodha, lobha, moha, mada, matsarya, will grow."

Divine Satsang - Premdeep, Sathya Sai Grama

Thursday, March 10, 2016 - Evening

When you talk too much, you spoil your mind; when you talk very less, it is good for the mind. That is why every one of us should cultivate the art of speaking very less in a very pleasant way. In vedas, God is described as – shabdabrahmamayee characharamayee – that is, sound is equivalent to the divine Himself.

The fundamental element is the space; space is nothing but a kind of vibration. What is that vibration in the space? That is nothing but the sound of Om.

Sunday, March 13, 2016 - Evening

When you combine these two words self and confidence, you get the phrase self-confidence, Atma vishvasa. We should understand what is this ‘self’.

Divine Discourse in progress.
Global Footprints
Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, while in the physical form, assured many devotees that He would visit their countries. Not long after taking mahasamadhi in 2011, Bhagawan revealed Himself in the Sookshma Roopa (Subtle Form). Since 2015, He has been travelling all over the world in the Sookshma Roopa, keeping His promise to His devotees and continuing His divine mission.

Soon after His travels began, Bhagawan instructed that, for each programme overseas, a Booklet must be prepared with transcripts of His divine discourses, question and answer sessions with devotees, talks given by His travelling entourage and selected photographs.

This week we bring you, three booklets – UK, Sri Lanka and Dubai - UAE - from Bhagawan’s travels during July and August 2015.
