The Sai Mission is about you being the God that you are meant to be. And in that God, all good will happen. The only time good does not happen is when we don't behave like God. When we do behave like God, good will happen as much as required. This is the essence of this year's message. This year, let us strive to be God so that good can happen through us, and all of it, not just a part of it. All of it can happen through us, through each one of us.

SAI MISSION IS MY MISSION
 

Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai’s life exemplifies the glorious mission of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. This mission’s alchemy works its way when one aligns oneself to the understanding that ‘Sai’s Mission is My Mission’. It is then that from ‘working for Sai’ or ‘working with Sai’, one starts ‘working as Sai’ and achieves the pinnacles of selfless service and spiritual evolution. 

Presented is the video to discover the true definition of Sai mission through the life journey of Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai.

AND A RENEWED PLEDGE


NEW YEAR'S DAY - DIVINE DISCOURSE  JANUARY 01, 2022

 

AN EXCERPT FROM THE DIVINE MESSAGE

What I want to convey on this New Year’s Day is that if you want to work for Sai, you have to work as Sai. Anything less than that would not be a good contribution to Sai's work.  

Sai is selflessness personified. Nothing more, nothing less. There is not an iota of selfishness in Sai. Sai is completely selfless. As long as you worry about your watches and phones and homes and families, you will hold yourself back from doing good. You will not be free.

This does not mean that everybody abandons everything and says,’I am now free’. In fact, you will still not be free because you might think have abandoned everything’. The day it doesn't matter whether these things are there or not is the day you will be truly free. 

There is no effort to get rid of anything, there is no effort to gain and hold on to anything. Both don't exist in that space. That is when we will be free. Till then we are bound. Knowingly or unknowingly, we are all bound, we are all dependent. And for as long as we remain in this state, we cannot claim that Sai’s work has been done.  

Service activities will go on, more people will come, more things will happen – but all of this is happening under a great Divine will. It is not my will, your will or anybody's will. You may like to attribute it to somebody, some person, some name or form, but that is entirely up to you.  

The truth is that there is one Brahman and everything is His will. That Brahman works with those who are pure and selfless, those whose only motto in life is to do good to others. And those who are not worried about themselves. They are only concerned about others. To such people, Divinity comes on its own, looking for them, embraces them and transforms them into the Divine and thus achieves great things.

LET'S LEARN BHAGAVAD GITA
A new video Series
On the journey within to realise our true Self, shraddha and the grace of God are essential to let go of all attachments and rise above the dualities in this ephemeral world. Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai in His infinite Grace sheds light on the path for all earnest seekers of Truth through the study of the Bhagavad Gita, the Song Divine, which will grant us the highest wisdom and lead us to our emancipation.

In this Introductory video of the series called Let’s Learn Bhagavad Gita, Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai beautifully elucidates the significance and relevance of the Bhagavad Gita in our day-to-day life. As part of this Divine initiative, every day, one video is released. Each video includes two shlokas from the holy Bhagavad Gita with word to word meanings given after each verse followed by the interpretation of the shloka. We urge all seekers of Truth to contemplate and meditate on the verses as part of your daily sadhana. 

May we all rise to Higher Consciousness.
