Sarvam Brahma Mayam

Long ago, when Adi Sankaracharya walked the Earth, he first declared, “Brahma Sathyam Jagat Mithya”, meaning, Brahman is the ever-unchanging, everlasting, eternal principle, and the world is an illusion that keeps changing. Here, ‘mithya’ doesn’t mean untruth; it means that which is unreal. Wherefrom this unreality comes into existence? The Upanishadic metaphor of ‘a rope and a snake’ clearly reveals that the ‘illusion of the snake’ comes into being because of the ‘reality of the rope’, that is symbolic of Brahman.

In the timeless symphony of The Supreme Divine, Bhagavad Gita, The Lord expounds the dictum revealing The Eternal Truth as “Ekatma Sarva Bhutantaratma”, meaning One Atma dwells in every being.  Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai time and again during His sojourn on Earth reminded the world around of this Eternal Principle of Oneness. One such occasion was on 30th July 1996, when He burst forth into singing a poetic prelude for a Divine discourse, exhorting and emphasising on the Oneness of Brahman. Man today is caught in the trap of illusory existence, and he keeps counting on the ‘unreal’. Ringing in a new and promising 2021, let’s now focus on this Song Celestial of modern times, diving and drowning into ParaBrahma Sri Sathya Sai.

(Telugu Poem)


A tree born out of soil is same as soil in its nature. Similarly, the creation born out of Brahman is not different from Brahman, but it appears to be different to the myopic eye. This is the mystery of this world.
