Sri Sathya Sai's Teachings

This category contains the wisdom, guidance, and teachings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

Living in this world is maya. Life is like a tree. At the top of the tree is the whole fruit. Reflection of the tree is its shadow. Man climbs the reflection and worries that he did not obtain the fruit. He worries, only when something is not obtained. If he looks around, he will see the real tree. After he climbs the real tree, he can see his reflection. Now, he gets the fruits on the real tree as well as in the reflection. These fruits are known as ihaphala and paraphala. The fruit on the real tree is the divine fruit. The reflection is the worldly fruit. Both ihaphala and paraphala will be yours, once you choose the spiritual path. If you climb the tree of God, you can see your shadow also climbing. By climbing the tree of God, you will get fruits of this world without your knowledge.

When I see you, I can see your hearts clearly, like the things kept in a glass almirah. You cannot hide anything from Me. Some people’s hearts are totally dark. I do not try to do anything to such people. Some people’s hearts glow brightly. I do not touch such people’s lives, also. Some people’s hearts have a small glimmer, like that of a candle light. My work is to ensure that this small glow is transformed into a bright light.

I have kept the secret of creation neither on Earth, nor in Heaven, but at the junction of these two. You have to see it in dhyana, i.e. in the transitory state between those of walking and sleeping. Ammayi, God has kept two of everything in the human body. Can you find anything, which is single?

In Developing A Spiritual Toolset

By practising the teachings of the Avatars, we are able to preserve and promote a spiritual toolset, which we know to be vital in life in any world.


For The Soul

The vedic prayers of the Avatars, written by Their divine guidance and blessings, are wonderful catalysts to connect with our true selves. They are essential steps and guides on our journey backwards.



Practise To Win

Chant, do, detach. The 'DO' is to be found in sadhana, also glibly called spiritual practice. The toughest step in the beginning, because rarely does one fancy doing, here are some nice ways to DO.



Look Into 'I'

And see the real 'I'. Question, evaluate, and transform. Be good, do good, see good, and all that wonderful, fluffy goodness. The final step in being divine, or as close as you can make it.
