Sakala Shastra Purana
Puttaparthi, Sai Kulwanth Hall (1996 Special Discourses )
Sakala shastra puraana sangrahaveththa ayi, Vedanta vedyudau vibhujudaina, Rakthiayi paaraga ramya harmyambula, Ramiyinchu raja chandramudu naina, Ranaranga mandu paraabhutaripudauchu Velugondu jagadeka veerudaina, Saati raaru bhakthulaku yenaatikaina, Needu premaye lekane raadu mukti!! He may be a scholar in Vedas, epics and sacred texts He may be a king living in a big palace, with comfort and beauty, He may be one of valour and courage fighting well in the battlefield, Any day they do not equal a devotee!! And without love, liberation is hard to get!! One might well-versed in all the Vedas and Vedanta but without love one cannot attain liberation.
Prema Lenatti Manasadhi00:01:31
Heart and mind devoid of Love are really like a burial ground Just because there is air going in and out Can we say that a bellows on the forge is with life?
Paramatma Prema Dharanilo Janulaku00:02:51
The first duty is to make people experience the divine love in this world. In fact progress is ensured when once we understand that life is gifted to render service to people in the society; not merely living for one's own self in the stage of utter selfishness. Self satisfaction is derived when one serves fellowmen forgetting one's own self. You are sent to this world such that this culture, the message, is experienced and shared with others in this world. What is the use of merely taking birth? Dust thou art and to dust returnest. Ultimately man goes back to dust - that's all.
We shouldn't have excessive money00:02:21
In the everyday life for a family man money is essential. But how is much is required? One is comfortable and can walk better in a shoe that fits well, that which is neither tight nor loose; similarly money in excess and its shortage -- both results in problems for one. Money that helps in one’s living and in feeding others is sufficient for one. One wastes one’s life by craving for wealth and amassing the same. One must get rid of this greed for money for however much one earns one has to leave it all behind and go. One must not crave for such transient things but discharge one’s duty to one’s full capacity.
Prema seva rendu rekkalu manaku00:01:00
Prema seva rendu rekkalu manaku: Love and service are like two wings to the organisation. Paksha balamuna yegireti pakshulatlu, Aa vihanga maargamunanusarinchi, Cheravalayunu gamyambu seeghragatini!! Just as a bird flies across the sky believing in its wings, Man too must reach his said goal believing in oneself. Sadgunambulu, tyagambu, satya nishta, Leni jeevudu praanamu leni vaade! Man bereft of virtues, spirit of sacrifice and abidance to truth is alike to the dead!! Seva cheyani jeevudu cheekatinti, andha jeevudani cheppavalayu, A person who does not take up service is like the blind man in a dungeon.
Prema roopambu, Brahmambu premamayamu00:00:20
God is love, love is God. It is only the connection, love to love. So strengthen the love, you'll reach that non-dual state and you'll get non-dual effulgence. This love is enough. In the world today, we find self-praise, aggrandizement, show and exhibitionism. Give up all of them, love is just enough.
Prema rupamu brahmambu premamayamu00:01:16
Love being His Form, He is present everywhere as Love; Become bonded to this Love And strengthen your spirit; For this will lead you to The Pure Bliss of non-duality.
