[Sathya Sai Baba can take words
that we use so casually in everyday conversations and in His
inimitable style, He shows how meaningful these words can be.]
Puttaparthi: When visiting the
ashram to see Baba, He tells us that if we leave our ego's
behind and come with open hearts, He can fill them with love He
has come to give. So when visiting Puttaparthi we should PUT
APART THE I.
Properties: are not Proper Ties.
Parents: are given that name,
because it is through them that we have the wonderful chance of
life on earth. For the sacrifices that they have made for us, we
must PAY RENTS to them.
Peace: People clamor "I want
Peace", But they do not let go of I(ego) or Want(desire). I and
Want deal with the outside world. Peace is inside, pieces are
Patience: Doctors need more
patience, not patients.
Interview: Don't clamor for an
interview. Instead search for the INNER VIEW.
Diamond: Why do you seek a
diamond to give you joy? Seek instead the state of DIE MIND,
which will give you pure and lasting joy.
Skill: Knowledge must develop
by balance into skill or else it degenerates into KILL.
Hello: Do not greet anybody
when the heart is filled with anger distrust etc. Have, instead,
a pure hollow from which a whole hearted Hello emanates.
Television: is TELE-VISHAM (POISON).
Study: to be STEADY.
