1. In our cover story ‘Sanathana Sarathi…Recreating a Prashanti in Every Home’ - Feb 2007 issue, Professor Kasturi recalls a very memorable learning experience! “I remember one evening in 1959, when He sent someone to bring me to His room at the mandir. Baba told me that the Editor of a daily published from Hyderabad had asked for my photograph, for he was announcing me in his paper, alongside a nice write-up as the Editor of the ‘Sanathana Sarathi’. Baba had promised to send him my photograph and He asked me to prepare myself for being shot within minutes by Baba Himself, with a brand new camera He had specially selected for the purpose.” What lesson did he learn from Swami from the experience that followed?




2. In our ‘H2H Special: An Interview With Anil Kumar’, Feb 2006 issue, Professor Anil Kumar points out that Swami’s stories are understood immediately, because they are full of fun and good taste, because they apply to our day-to-day situation and many a times, make us laugh. Then he narrated this story:

“One day, in Darshan, Sai Baba was talking to the children from the primary school. He asked one young boy, just six or seven years old, "Where do you come from, boy?" What was the boy’s reply?




3. In the Chinna Katha from the Feb 2006 issue, Bhagavan enlightens us with a very important message illustrated by a story of a merchant dealing in gems, who was willing to pay fifty thousand rupees in exchange for a gem that a boy was playing with, thinking it was a marble. What did Swami compare the ‘marble’ to?




4. In ‘Conversations with Sai’, Feb 2006 issue, Swami explains to Hislop a very important concept by illustration with a brilliant example:

“The body is not the truth we attribute to it. An example: a man worships the mother who gave him birth 30 years ago. He massages her feet, prostrates before her, gazes into her eyes with love, listens to her voice, is warmed and made happy by her affectionate and loving regard. At age 60, the mother dies. At once the son cries out, 'Mother, Mother, why have you left me?’

Why did the man cry out? The body he worshipped was there, the feet he massaged daily were there, but he cried out that his mother was not there, that she had left him. We have to conclude that even though the man had for the past 30 years regarded the body and mother as one and the same, yet when the mother died he instantly knew that 'mother' was not body and that 'mother' had departed even though body remained. So, of what value was the body, which was never the mother, even though for a time it had been regarded as mother?”

What concept was Swami referring to?




5. In ‘Sathya Sai Speaks’, Feb 2005 issue, Swami teaches us how to discern discrimination and detachment. He said: “These two are the first and the second steps that man has to take in order to reach the Eternal Atmic Truth. The mind can be steadied only by means of the mastery of desire, the quality of unwavering detachment. Once the mind is still, peace reigns and bliss prevails.” How does Swami teach us to develop detachment?
