"Only with one thorn can you remove another. Therefore, this thorn of attachment has to be removed with attachment towards God. Where there is ‘I’, there is no Sai; wherever there is Sai, there is no ‘I’. When you make yourselves nothing, then everything will get into you. All the time we should keep telling ourselves 'Not me, but You.'”

“The Proper Study of Mankind is Man” - A line from a brilliant poem, was a favourite of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. To discover life's beauty and meaning is a study we engage in, mostly for a lifetime.

Picturesquely located in Naya Raipur, the new state capital of Chhattisgarh in central India, Sri Sathya Sai Sowbhagyam, is an offering to every being from every land, to invoke the Spirit of the Divine to bless and guide us.

Divine Satsang - Premdeep, Sathya Sai Grama

Thursday, February 11, 2016 - Evening

God neither has a particular name nor a particular form. How do human beings who have this body - mind complex, really understand God who is beyond body and mind? Only through experience you can understand Him. When God comes down to be with the human beings as an Avatar, He has both individual consciousness (jeeva prajna) and also divine consciousness (daiva prajna). But for man who is full of body consciousness, it is almost impossible to understand this divine principle.

God is in everybody in equal measure. A mother has love for everyone in equal measure. At the right time, the mother gives everything to every child. You have to secure your faith very firmly that if you believe that Swami is God, He is there everywhere with you wherever you go. Then, why is it that we should all gather here? We are here for satsang, good company. Wherever there is good company, there is the company of Sai also.

Divine Satsang - Premdeep, Sathya Sai Grama

Sunday, February 14, 2016 - Evening

When we look at creation we see many things but not the one God who is behind everything. With our physical eyes, we can only see multiplicity and diversity in creation. When you look inward, you know that there is only one Atma, which pervades every one of us. Without knowing yourself, it is not possible for you to know others.

When you have God, who can grant you both devotion and liberation, why do you go after worldly life? You should also know what exactly to ask from God. He will give you whatever you ask. God resides in a mind, which is full of innocence and purity. Therefore, first and foremost, we have to give up our selfish desires. When you ask from God....

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 – Croatia, Italy and USA - from Bhagawan’s travels between April and June 2015.

Integral Education aims at the development of all aspects of human personality in a manner that it leads to Total Human Excellence - Development of the body, mind and the spirit. The Sathya Sai System of Education is an integral system of education, where equal emphasis is given to every aspect of a student’s personality. The system is a wonderful synthesis of the head, hand and heart, as Baba says, the 3H formula i.e. education for the mind (Intelligence and Discrimination)fitness for the body (Ability and Perfection) and spiritual nourishment for the soul (Love and Compassion)

A video was screened on the Valedictory Day of the Sri Sathya Sai Annual Sports and Cultural Meet 2016, capturing the key aspects of the Sathya Sai System of Integral Education.
