Master’s Messages-5.3- Japa and Dhyana

Dhyana-Meditation and Japa- Chanting are the only ways to purify our minds.

japa

One need not read or listen to many scriptures if we can listen to the God residing in our hearts. If we call sincerely He will respond. We should just have the form of or favourite deity in our mind and constantly repeat His name. Dhyana-Meditation and Japa- Chanting are the only ways to purify our minds.

Master’s Messages-5.2- Understanding the essence of the scriptures

Gita and other Upanishads are only guides and maps. One must be able to put this in practise.

scripture

Absence of Athma Vichara (Self enquiry) is the root cause of Ashannti (restlessness). On enquiry one will realise that Brahman or Atman is our basic substance.

This knowledge can be found in the Upanishads. They help one to regulate and restrict the senses, mind and intellect and help one merge with the absolute. One must be able to put this in practise. Gita and other Upanishads are only guides and maps.

Avatars come to earth to re-establish Dharma

avatar

Avatars like Sai Baba has come to sow the seeds of faith of devotion in religion and in God. Many atheists doubt, question and once they experience they dedicate their lives to the teachings of the avatar.

Sai has come down to the earth in response to the prayers of saints, sages and spiritual aspirants for the restoration of Dharma. Mahatmas, Mahapurushas and jnanis will work with Sai in re-establishing righteousness and paving the path for peace.

Master’s messages-4.4- Be Egoless

Divine can work only through the egoless

Sorrow springs from egoism. When egoism goes sorrow disappears. We should work on reducing our ego and should pray Lord to use us as His flute. This will only happen when we are hollow ; free from ego. He will then create a captivating music for all the creation to enjoy. Then we can merge our will in the will of God. Divine can work through us only when are egoless.

Master’s messages- 4.3- Faith

Faith can move mountains

faith 02

Only when we wipe out the root causes of anxiety, fear and ignorance our true personality can shine. Anxiety is removed by faith. Faith tells us that whatever happens, happens for the best and Lord’s will be done. We have to do our best and for what is not in our hands quiet acceptance is the best armour.

Master’s messages- Vol 1- 3.8-Need for a guru

Guru is the one who dispels the darkness of ignorance in us

When one is inclined towards the spiritual path; he starts pursuing in that path but without proper direction; gets lost. Hence the need for a guru who will guide him and lead him to the ultimate.

Gu – Gunateetha-one who has transcended the 3 gunas namely rajas, tamas and satwik.

Ru- Rupa varjita- one who has grasped the formless aspect of God head by sublimation of lower to higher qualities. Guru is the one who dispels the darkness of ignorance.

Message from Sri Sathya Sai Speaks Vol 1- Chapter 3

Master’s messages-Vol 1-3.7- Doing one’s duty

Do one’s duty to the best of one’s abilities and without any attachment

Essence

One should do one’s duty in this world with dedication and sincerity but without attachment. If one develops the quality of detachment slowly; they will not be hurt and suffer so much. Attachment leads to expectations and unmet expectations lead to disappointment. Disappointment makes us unhappy. So lets do our best in whatever work we undertake.
