Sathya Sai Baba

Life will be unfulfilled by merely spending time. When you enquire earnestly whether duty comes first or right comes first, several people insist upon ‘rights’. Ask yourself - Where did ‘rights or entitlements’ come from? When you perform your duty, its fruit, in the shape of rights, accrues to you! How can a child exist without the mother? So also, when you perform your duties sincerely, the result of that action comes as rights. When you enquire into the fact whether rain comes first or the flow of water, it becomes clear that flow of rainwater follows rain. Without rain, there cannot be a flow. The flow can be compared to one’s ‘rights’ and rain to ‘duty’. Therefore accord your highest priority to your duties!

- Divine Discourse, 22 Nov 2002.

Doing one’s duty selflessly is the highest spiritual endeavour. - Baba
