Words with profund spiritual import were spoken by the Supreme-Most Avatar, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai, in the year 1968, revealing greater facets of His Avatarhood on Planet Earth. Noticing the greater importance of the same, the then Editor of Sanathana Sarathi, Prof N Kasturi published the same with bullet points in the July, 1968 issue of Sanathana Sarathi.


All are devotees, who have gathered here.

Devotees from all the nations of the world have gathered here.

Therefore, I should not fail to tell you about a certain matter:

World Conferences or Conferences of different faiths or assemblies of spiritual aspirants from all nations have taken place, before this.

But, such have happened, after the Divine Inspirer has left the world.

This Conference, however, is taking place, when this Body and the Name associated with this Body are present in the World.

This has to be considered by you.

The basic cause of this uniqueness is the Reality of My Advent.

Ninety nine out of a hundred among you cannot delve into that Reality.

You have gathered here, drawn by diverse needs.

Some have come seeking spiritual uplift.

Some have come seeking the progress of institutions and organisations, in which they are interested.

Some have come prompted by mere love and reverence.

Some have yielded to the temporary urge of enthusiasm

To every one, My Reality is unreachable,

Unreachable it will be, not today only, but, for a thousand years of ardent inquiry by all the people of the world, even if, they sought it unitedly.

But, the Bliss emanating from that Reality (Tattwa) – that has come in this sacred Body – is within your reach and the reach of the nations of the earth, and you can partake of it quite soon.

When you observe Me moving among you, talking as you do and eating as you do, and thence conclude that I Am but human, you are perpetrating a mistake.

In all ages, this has been the lot of man.

Men have failed to recognise Me, for I am enveloped in humanness.

My Reality is this: This is a Human Form, worn by the Principle that manifests Itself as all, the God-forms adored by Man.

I must say that I confuse you through words and actions.

But, however confused, if you only install in the altar of your heart, steady faith in My Divinity, you can achieve the Vision of My real Reality.

If, instead, you swing like the pendulum of a clock, one moment to one side and the next to the other, you can never comprehend My Truth.

Let Me draw your attention to another point:

On other occasions when there was the Advent of the Incarnations of God, the world bent before Them, often for reasons other than Divine, namely, imperial authority or some such related power or influence.

But, now, in this Kali Age of rampant materialism, in this manifestation of Sathya Sai, all the peoples are adoring It, because, as must be clearly evident to you, It is the Godhead that is the Prime Principle, beyond All.

This Sathya Sai Swarupam (manifestation) is Daivaswarupam (Divine Reality).

You are fortunate that you can grasp this Truth, not at some future date when this Human Frame has been discarded, but, luckily, even while It is with you, before you.

You will soon be awarded the chance to witness the homage of adoration that all countries will offer to India (Bharat-desa), and to listen to the declaration by all people of the Divinity of this Sathya Sai Manifestation.

And, there is something more:
I have resolved to enfold in the fostering care of Sanathana Dharma, the Dharma laid down in the Vedas, the peoples of the world.

This will be done, soon.

This is My Task; it is not My Task to spread awe and wonder in the World, by My Power and draw men to Me thereby.

I shall sustain Truth, and uproot Untruth.

I shall render you happy and ecstatic, in the Splendour of that Triumph.

This Saiswarupam is the Sakthiswarupam which will achieve that Triumph, and confer that Bliss.
