Miracle Of Transformation

It is because of Sri Sathya Sai Baba that my life is happier, more meaningful and insightful and my job is enriched with new challenges and new perspectives and meanings: “Work is love made visible.” His love and service translated into action for over 60 years are mind boggling, and His initiatives at cross cultural understanding among devotees from over 160 countries are just as amazing, writes Dr Yassin Sankar, Professor of Management, Dalhousie University, Canada. An extract from Sanathana Sarathi, September 2001. read more »

An Unprecedented Devotional Feat

We have heard the stories of ancient Rishis and Saints undertaking rigorous penance for a number of years, standing on one leg surrounded by raging fire or hanging upside down to the branch of tree in the wild forest, invoking the grace of God and have His vision. For the modern man, these achievements remain only in fables and stories. read more »

What Language Breathe Thee O’ Chitravathi…

Rarely we see a poem pulsating in nature’s perfect tune…As a stream flowing silently by the night in ecstatic swoon…Catching up with the mood of Holy River Chitravathi, that earned the rarest heavenly boon by being the ‘playground’ for the Avatar’s Divine Sport, narrating her current plight, Sri Satish Kumar Dua writes poetically silently praying to the Holy River, Mother Chitravathi to rise once again in sovereign queenly rage…Sri Satish Dua was formerly President Of Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations – Haryana, currently serving the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust, Prasanthi Nilayam in its extended Drinking Water Supply Project. read more »


If you waste your time enjoying the pleasures of life during your youth, wasting the power of your body and your sense organs, then if you want to reach your goal of merging with the Lord in your old age, you may not get that chance said Bhagawan once exhorting devotees to understand the preciousness of time. When time waste becomes life waste, knowing very well that we have to pay for being slack, how should man deal with time making the best of it…a poem from Sri Jullie Chaudhuri. read more »

Yes, You Can!!!

The story of Mikko Mayedo of Ontario, California – Champion Over Adversity – is an incredible story of ‘Yes, You Can…” , story of ‘will’ that granted her the power to win against all oddities, finally to become a ‘champion of the world’. Mikko Mayedo was a world‑renowned Olympic Equestri­an Champion from the United States who achieved her feat despite being completely blind. As her narration continues, she ends up with her telling tale of  finding her God within. She claims, Even in blindness, I know that God has come, narrating how she found the Avatar Of the Age ‘within!!!’

(Mikko Mayeda – “Champion Over Adversity” – even though afflicted with MS and blind, she won 18 first place and 6 second of 24 equestrian entries from 1983 to 1987, and became an Olympic and International Champion.)

From The Physical To The Subtle…

When Bhagawan Himself says His Name is not distinct from His Form, when Form and Name become inseparable, is it right to call Bhagawan’s transition, from the physical to the subtle, “From Form To Formless” asks Dr Sara Pavan, narrating a couple of His ever increasing ”Divine Sport’ of His physical manifestations post His passing on from the physical plane… read more »

Why Do Animals Matter?

Imagine a world without greenery around, without the four legged ones, without the flying colours? Such a world would be hollow without the essence. Man is blessed to co-exist in this beautiful world, with plants, animals, birds and all other living ‘loving’ creatures. If alone man understands his duty, his legacy, to live practising “Love All Serve All, Help Ever Hurt Never”, coexisting with his co-creation, he can surely claim that his heart has been touched by God. Why man should co-exist in nature and why do animals, birds matter for him? Read on as Ms. Mercinini Sheratt from the United Kingdom writes about the beauty of animal kingdom, citing Bhagawan’s priceless quotes. The writer, an English Teacher by profession, has been a long time devotee and is currently spiritual co-ordinator for Region 6 in the UK. She has also been taking active interest in animal welfare and animal rights. read more »

Transformation From Within…

In today’s world of competition and corruption, jealousy and hatred, transformation is what man needs the most. How are we to achieve it? This transformation should come from within and that too on a mass scale. Just as one tree does not make a forest or one house a village, so also one man’s transformation does not serve the purpose of society. According to Swami, for the transformation of humanity, first each individual has to transform himself, next there should be transformation in the family, then transformation in the community, thereafter transformation in the nation which finally leads to transformation in the world, writes Sri Parthish Dubey, then (1989) a XII standard student at Bhagawan’s school. Extracted from his speech delivered in the immediate Divine Presence. Read on… read more »
