Sathya Sai Baba

There are four components in the term ‘Ceiling on Desires.’ They are - curb on excessive talk, curb on excessive desires and expenditure, control of consumption of food, check on waste of energy. You need some essential commodities for your sustenance. You should not aspire for more. Learn a lesson in this respect from Nature. Only if air is available in sufficient quantity will it be comfortable and good. If it is excessive and there is a gale you will feel uncomfortable. When you are thirsty, you can consume only a limited quantity of water. You can't consume the entire Ganga! Doctors know that the body temperature is normally 98.4. If this goes up to 99 they say fever has set in due to some disorder in the body. So you find that if you cross the limits even to a little extent it is dangerous or harmful.

- Divine Discourse, 19 Jan 1983.

Curbing desire is the surest means to achieve mental peace. – Baba
