The one thing that is the most exalted in this world…that deserves a worshipful place upon any altar is – Beloved Bhagawan and His Word…Sathya Sai…and the Sathya of Sai…
My word will never fail; it must happen as I will. – Baba
Once My word goes forth, it must happen accordingly. Do not doubt it. – Baba
Who can refute the truth of Truth…?
Can anyone ignore the inevitable certainty… …of the spoken word of Sathya Sai…?
The precision of Sai…
…none in the Cosmos can deny...
…for not even Truth can hold back the unfolding of Eternal Truth…
Every step in the career of the Avatar is predetermined. - Baba
Nothing can stop the rays of the Sun from shining upon all…raindrops must caress the earth…after bidding adieu to parent cloud…flowers too cannot their fragrance withhold or stall…a mother will never her love recall…so too, the Sathya of Sai stands tall and in time to come…will all souls enchant, astound and enthrall…
Avatars…Divine Incarnations…do not say, declare or enact anything for no reason…every syllable is profound, every action has a reason behind it…a meaning quite unfathomable and incomprehensible to a finite mind…bound and limited by many a prejudice. Suffice for us to accept, adjust, appreciate…and wait…patiently…in the august company of trust, certitude and confidence.
Love my uncertainty! For it is not a mistake. It is My Intent and Will. Remember nothing happens without My Will. Be still. Do not want to understand; Do not try to understand; Relinquish understanding. Relinquish the imperative that demands understanding. – Baba
Patience is the name of the game. Forbearance lends strength. The Lord taught it when He appeared at Shirdi – Divine Utterances that promoted ‘Shraddha and Saburi’. Along with Faith and Patience…Shraddha and Saburi…personal discipline or sadhana enhances the outlook…reinforces positive qualities…majority of the populace forsook while existing in the fast lane of material living.
Are we to remain nonchalant about the chaos, conflict, heinous crimes, murder and mayhem that rampantly violates the very being of Mother Earth and Her children…threatening each and every species…? Are we to accept this hiatus as a conclusion…a ‘The End…without much ado’…only to remain sanguine and complacent about the as yet non-fulfillment of His prophecies – exclusively divine edicts and decrees…that hitherto await a birth?
He is Who He is…and His Word is what it is – the immutable Truth. After having been in the Presence of and witnessed our Beloved Master’s inimitably transcendental and exceedingly limitless reach…is this the confidence we repose on our Omnipotent Master…on His word…and indomitable Will…on Truth and its existence…its inevitable, irrefutable, undeniable and fundamental victory…?
This in-between period in the transit lounge…as we await Truth to reveal Itself…seems long, arduous and unending…however, when we work on ourselves contemplate, concentrate, introspect…complement and elevate…become and be…graduation is a must…we must posthaste absorbingly prepare the self for times of Truth yet to make an astounding appearance.
Let us intently peruse the words Beloved Bhagawan spoken to Jairo Borjas when He granted him a divine dream…which amounts to nothing short of a proclamation – Now you go around and spread My message. Tell all to be prepared. This is a great time and a great opportunity, something extraordinary in the history of mankind is about to happen.
To dream of God is not a figment of the subconscious mind…for Bhagawan says – When I appear in a dream it is to communicate something to the individual. It is not a mere dream as is generally known. Do not think of these incidents you experience in your dream as stretches of your imagination.
Bhagawan elaborates further – Swami appears in dreams only when He wills it…and not when you want them.
I come to you and convey what I want to in the most direct manner.
Innumerable such dreams and visions are being experienced by so many of our dear sisters and brothers across the globe simultaneously. Don’t these occurrences deserve keen regard and venerated deliberation…?
The masquerade of Maya brings in its wake a flood of ignorance that engrosses us all in the play of senses…are we then going to allow our attention to be attracted, distracted and drawn by the mundane chores of life to such an extent that we let precious moments slip by without beseeching the Physical Presence of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai.
The Formless can at will assume any Form…yet the CEO of Faith, has to re-assume this particular Form…not simply because It is adored by countless beings cosmically…but to reflect and effect the truth of His Word. His might is such…that nothing is impossible for That all-powerful and absolutely invincible Supreme Personality Who willed forth creation…and Who chose the enchanting form of Sathya Sai for His present advent.
Sri Rama ventured to Sri Lanka…fought a fierce battle with Ravana to bring back Mother Sita in Treta Yug…
In Dwapar, Sri Krishna gave us the eternal song of the Bhagawad Gita prior to the commencement of the compelling battle at Kurukshetra…
Now, it is this Form that the Supreme Source of all Sources donned – that of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai…and, it is as Sathya Sai …through transformation wrought by His Reappearance…sans any outer battle…that He will steer us all towards the promised Golden Age…after subtly vanquishing the demons finely hidden within each individual personality.
The Avatar or Form Incarnate is only the concretisation of the yearning of the seekers. It is the solidified sweetness of the devotion of godly aspirants. The Formless assumes the Form for the sake of these aspirants and seekers. – Baba
It is your yearning that decides in what form the Lord appears. You call and He answers. If you are not earnest, if you feel indifferent…and say - Let Him come when He wills, in the Form He likes and with the Name He prefers - He will not come at all. Call on Him with anguish; He will respond.
The Formless will assume any form and undergo any transformation to satisfy the yearning of the devoted aspirant. The overriding purpose is to make all Karma-jivis…Brahma-jivis. - Baba
Even as the mind does wander and wonder…at times through stormy tempest and the dense fog of suspense…eventually, with the onset of crisp and clear clime brought on by the luminescence of inner conviction…we must acknowledge, be aware, deeply believe and know…that the era of Sathya Sai has much more in store.
Swami’s name will fill not merely every home but every inch of the world. The song – ‘Everything everywhere is Sai…everything everywhere is Baba…’ will not fail; it will be realized in actuality. - Baba
The advent that took place on Monday, 23rd November 1926 at 5.06 am…was not just an extraordinary arrival of the Divine in the physical…but the superlatively Supreme Advent of all Advents…out-surpassing all previous Incarnations and any future ones to come…sovereign…towering unparalleled and matchlessly ultimate. Do we have even an iota of inkling how very privileged we are…the glorious golden times we are about to and have been chosen to witness…which generations to come will applaud and speak of in hushed awe and absolute wonderment…?
The time is approaching when all humanity will live in harmony. That time will be here sooner than one expects. Before it comes, be prepared to reveal to every living being the true purpose of existence. It is not what anyone alive can imagine. It is beyond all comprehension. I can say its beauty is magnificent beyond all dreams. - Baba
Nothing with the Divine is a slip-up…every word is an assurance, an assertion, a hint, a clue, an intimation…a weighty affirmation…nothing and no one can hinder the bud of truth from blossoming into an exotic bloom. Nothing!
I do not utter a word that does not have significance or do a deed without beneficial consequence. - Baba
Only He knows the outcome of His play…for our part…with utmost faith we must await that magnificent conclusion. Speculation, conjecture, debates will not provide any succor or benefit.
It is only our intense and consistent inner conviction that will ring in a royal celebration…it is only our firm belief that will herald in global and universal relief. Let us chant ‘Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu…Samastha Jeeva Sukhino Bhavantu’…even as we await that right royal ‘grand finale’…of this His most charismatic play.
His entrance was ever so spectacular…His exit, when the time comes for it, once this period of intended intermission bids adieu…will…as it is wont to…display the perfect and illustrious fanfare…befitting the Emperor of all Avataars.
Let us pause not…to gather that critical mass…let neither a moment…nor a breath go waste…while seeking the embrace of His grace…for that act of Divine Will…which will benefit mankind and all of creation boundlessly.
Come, dear ones, join hands…pledge, re-pledge, affirm, confirm, acknowledge and wait. Let not even a minuscule second go awry…ponder and reflect - His word; pray and compose - fervent appeals - that every heart echoes…and continues a relentless pursuit to draw Him close…
Then sit back and sigh –
Sai Thy Will be done…Sai Thy Kingdom Come…
My firm inner conviction is that His Kingdom will come…His Will…will be done…none can refute this Cosmic Tale…the Triumph of Truth…the Sathya of Sai will prevail…
This is my soul’s sole feeling…
What song does your soul sing…?
