The last day of a Saptaha (seven-day discourse) is called Samaapthi. That word means, according to most people, the final function; but it has a more profound meaning too. Samaapthi means the attainment (Aapthi) of the Samam (Divine or Brahman). That is the final fruit of Shravana, Manana and Nidhidhyasana (Listening, Recapitulation and Assimilation) of key spiritual truths and lessons from discourses. In the worldly sense, it means the conclusion of a period of time. In the spiritual sense, it means transcending time! The lesson that all spiritual discourses wish to convey is that you must give up your pursuit of sensory objects, if you seek lasting peace and joy. Material wealth brings along with it, not only joy but grief as well. Accumulation of riches, multiplication of wants will lead only to alternation between joy and grief. Attachment is the root of both joy and grief. Detachment is the saviour.

- Divine Discourse, Aug 19, 1964.

Sathya Sai Baba
Ideals must become higher and grandeur. Desires must become more and more selfless and sublime. Attachment must be transmuted into nobler and subtler emotions. - Baba
