Sathya Sai Baba

Before offering to God, it is food. Once it is offered to God, it becomes free from all impurities and gets transformed into prasadam. By eating such sacred food, one will not acquire any mental impurities. We offer food to God on a clean plantain leaf. The human body is a plantain leaf, your heart is a sacred vessel and and the sacred food items are the virtues and acts of good conduct. Today to whom are you offering food? Your sacred food offering is to demons of wicked feelings such as anger, hatred, and jealousy. The left over is being offered to God. That is why you are victims of restlessness, difficulties, sorrows, and misery. Get rid of your evil qualities and offer your virtues to God with the prayer: ‘Oh God, You are the resident of my heart and You are the embodiment of love, kindness, and compassion.

- Divine Discourse 16 Jul 1996.

To get angry is but the effort of a moment but to get peace, to become unaffected by the ups and downs of life, is the result of years of training in Vedanta. - Baba
