Change Your Destiny!

Posted on: Aug 14, 2017

Krishna and Arjuna were taking a stroll when they came across a Brahmin who was begging. Arjuna out of pity gave him a pouch full of gold coins. The Brahmin was overjoyed and set off for home with a romantic song in his heart and dreamy eyes. On the way, a robber looted him.

by Mr. Ravi Shankar Prasad
Posted on: Aug 10, 2017

Just now you heard a very long introduction about me but let me make it very clear. I have not come here as a senior minister of the Narendra Modi government but I have come as a simple bhakt, a simple devotee, to offer my pranams. Today I am singularly honoured and uniquely privileged that I have been invited here today to this abode of Lord Sainath.

The Story of Sai – 8

And the Lessons for You and Me
Posted on: Aug 10, 2017

Little Sathyanarayana became the darling of the entire village. Pedda Venkama Raju's house was always full of visitors who came on some pretext but stayed on to sing lullabies to Sathyanarayana; they wanted to rock His cradle and shower Him with caresses – this way they forgot their humdrum lives.

The Choicest Blessing of Choosing Him Over Everything

- Dr U Suma Rao

Posted on: Aug 4, 2017

We were a family of four, happily residing in Mumbai in the 1980s when suddenly out of the blue we relocated to Puttaparthi. I say ‘out of the blue’ because my dad was working for a prestigious institution NITIE (National Institute of Industrial Engineering) and my sister and I were still schooling in Mumbai. We have often been asked what triggered such a sudden and drastic move. I think the thought had taken seed long ago and steadily gained shape over the years. But we had to wait for His call.

Then, on January 26, 2017, late at night I got a phone call from my family in the USA giving me shocking news. My 29-year-old nephew had suddenly died from a heart attack without any prior symptoms.

A Tribute to Mr V Srinivasan

Former Trustee, SSSCT and Former All India President, SSSSO

Posted on: July 25, 2017

A few months back, the 8th of May 2017 to be precise, a member of Team Radio Sai was in the city of Chennai in his personal capacity to attend a solemn ceremony. It was the funeral of Mrs. Vidya Srinivasan, the wife of Mr. V. Srinivasan (who was referred to fondly as AIP, ‘All India President’ of the Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations - even after he quit that role as he had served Swami in that capacity for a number of years). She was past 75 and her husband was nearly an octogenarian. But that did not stop him from warmly expressing his gratitude to all who had come for the funeral. He shook hands with Prakash and personally ensured that he was comfortable.

An Earnest Disciple

Posted on: July 8, 2017

Sai Ram. I presume you wish to know Swami’s explanation and of course the general differentiation from the spiritual point of view between Yoga and physical exercise; because, anything that is traditionally a part of Indian heritage cannot be spoken of without making references to the spiritual perspective. Indian cultural heritage and spirituality are inseparable. I should probably give you an alert that in my answer I will be speaking more about Yoga than regular exercise, but will try and contrast the two as and when possible in the course of the answer.

This is the story of my DNB admission (Diplomate of National Board) Post-Graduation course at Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Prasanthigram (SSSIHMS-PG). For me it is not just a series of incidents or events but the love story of a devotee and the Lord that was fulfilled by intense yearning. It’s a story of how the Lord in His infinite compassion taught His child that if God is all that you desire, then God is all that you need!

Easwaramma Day every year brings back precious memories. In fact this happens every time I visit the Divine Parents' Samadhi.

Like we do on every occasion, this year too (2017) after garlanding Mother Easwaramma and Pedda Venkama Raju, right in front of their Samadhi sumptuous prasadam was served to all. I am sure this is the moment the Mother cherishes the most in the day – to see everyone sitting around her and relishing sweet rice and tamarind rice.

Buddha's Lesson On Wasting

Posted on: May 10, 2017

Disciple: “My robe is worn out. It is no longer decent enough to wear. Please may I have a new one?”

Buddha looked at the disciple's attire and found that the garment was absolutely in tatters and really needed replacement.

So he asked the store-keeper to give a new robe to this disciple. The disciple offered obeisance to the great master and left the room.

Buddha kept thinking about the incident and felt that He had perhaps missed an opportunity to teach a valuable lesson to the disciple. So he went to the disciple's quarters to talk to him.

Sai Sets Us Free -
by Mrs. Priya S Tandon

Posted on: Apr 26, 2017

Six years have passed since my beloved Lord, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, moved on from the form to the formless on April 24, 2011.

As He shed the mortal coil, He left millions of devotees who loved Him and who He loved more, in tears. The moment in time, when I came to know that He had left us, was easily the most painful moment in my life. Later, I lost my mother and father too, but nothing compares to the pain of having lost Him who gave us the love of a thousand mothers.

The Story of Sai - 06

And the lessons for you and me 

Posted on: Apr 07, 2017

Kondama Raju's sons, Pedda Venkama Raju and Chinna Venkama Raju, lived adjacent to their cousins, the two sons of Kondama Raju's brother. Both their homes were extremely modest. Pedda Venkama Raju's two-room house had stone walls.

One room was used to store food grains while the other served as the living room. The kitchen was located at the end of a small passageway. A few wooden poles laid horizontally with a slight slope for regulating the flow of rainwater formed the roof. A bamboo mat spread over the wooden frame and nailed to the walls substituted for tiles. A plaster of lime and a bleaching agent, chavudu, was used as waterproofing material on the roof.

Ramayana's Essence Through Sai Quotes

Posted on: Mar 09, 2017

Swami says: The Ramayana is not merely a story of Rama. Rama + Ayana is Ramayana. Ayana means Path. The inner meaning of Ramayana is that the path shown by Rama should be followed. 

Swami has often punctuated His talks with powerful quotes that serve as a guide to us on daily life.  In His many talks on the Ramayana, He has used many of these quotes to great effect to teach us ideals for contemporary living.

Theme - Sun

Posted on: Jan 26, 2017


01: Swami says: Every month the Sun moves into a new house in the Zodiac. This movement is called Sankramana. In a year the Sun transits twelve houses of the Zodiac. Of these movements, four are important. Makara Sankramana is the first one. It relates to the entry of the Sun into Makara (Capricorn) from Dhanus (Sagittarius). The second one is Thula Sankramana - the entry of the Sun into the zodiacal sign Thula (Libra). The third is Mesha Sankramana - moving into the sign Mesha (Aries). The fourth one is Shashi Sankramana - entry into the Moon sign (Cancer). 

One of these four marks the apparent movement of the sun from the south to the north and is the most sacred of the transits. Which Sankramana or transit is this?
