Sai Baba: "The world does not need a new creed or a new religion, but good people who are ready to work for the good of their brothers and sisters."
The living of Sathya Sai Baba
When Baba was born in Puttaparthi on November 23, 1926, the musical instruments were playing in the house. Days in advance they are said to have played beautiful melodies without anyone touching them. As a child, he made sweets and pens for school to his playmates, that is, simply created them out of nothing. His grandfather recognized his divinity at an early age. He told his son to call Sai Baba's mother "Easwaramma" (Mother of God).
Baba did not achieve his many supernatural abilities through asceticism or the like, but was born with them. He is perfect, he did not need sleep and everything he wanted happened instantly - he is truth - Sathya.
When he was 14 years old, he told his family that he was now on his mission and put his school bag aside. He came to renew the spirituality in the world and to lead people back on the path of virtue, truth and love. Sai Baba said the saints prayed and so he came to guide the people.
His teaching is based on the ideals of truth, righteousness, love, peace and nonviolence, all of the scriptures of the various religions teach us this. So among the followers of Sai Baba there are people of all religions who sing and pray together. For decades he has exemplified these ideals for us, with him thoughts, words and deeds have always been a unity. Swami said that the teacher and guru must do what he teaches, this is the only way he can convince the students and is also credible.
On April 27, 2011 about 1 million people made the pilgrimage to Puttaparthi to pay their last respects to the great world teacher and to bid him farewell. The state government had ordered a four-day state mourning.
Swami had said that he will stay with us until he is 96 years old, now he has died at the age of 85. Since the lunar calendar is often used in India, Swami would actually have been 96 years old after that. A lunar year has only 327 days.
Follow the religion you were born into or chose and live in accordance with good behavior and morals on a daily basis.
Christmas 2008 in the temple in Prashanthi Nilayam
In the Vedas the avatar is described as an extraordinary being, an embodiment of the divine in human form. The Avatar comes to earth when strife and disharmony flood the world. An avatar (descent of the divine) is characterized by 16 special properties that distinguish it from ordinary people. An avatar is not a guru, one is grateful to a guru - but one worships an avatar.
|Sai Baba says:|
In ancient times, regardless of the region, when people were lost in fear and worry, or when the sources of joy and contentment dried up, people blamed that misfortune in the failure of false worship in the local temples .
They tried to find out and correct these mistakes so that they could find inner peace. They believed that by this means the crisis could be brought under control.
These actions are now tied up and are "Superstition"called and brushed aside. This is by no means superstition.
The ancients understood the highest truth only after personally experiencing its validity.
Many of you are drawn to God by health problems or fears of one kind or another. You have to know that this is only a bait by which God draws you to himself so that you can establish contact with Him, receive His blessings and strengthen your faith in God. Problems and worries are really to be welcomed as they teach you humility and respect.
Nowadays the whole world is facing problems. Many hesitate to believe that things could change, that life will be happy and joyful again for all, and that the Golden Age will return.
Be assured that the divine will always be present to protect you, restore righteousness and avert a crisis for humanity.
When you see who you really are, realizing it opens the doors to liberation. But the mirror of the heart must be covered with a covering on the back - with truth (sathya) and righteousness (dharma - which also includes truth). Otherwise you will not be able to see your self in the mirror. In each of your actions you can see your own reality when you practice truth and justice.
Worldwide, Sathya Sai Baba has around 50 million followers in 126 countries who come together in groups to sing sacred songs of different religions, prayer and meditation. Joint projects are carried out for the benefit of people and nature.
Sai Baba Namaskar
Namaskar gesture to say goodbye
On March 20, 2011 after the evening darshan, when the "Samastha Loka" sounded, Baba did not raise his hands in the well-known gesture of blessing (Abhayahastha), but greeted the devotees gathered in the Sai Kulwant Hall with the Namaskar, the gesture made in India is customary to greet and say goodbye.

In 1991, Baba materialized golden lingam. This image has already caused many miracles and healings. You can download it to your computer and print it out. If you are in pain or not feeling well, hold the picture up and say a prayer.
He says it is a great blessing for everyone to have this photo and it should not be missing in any home. His energy would work wonders through it. It was the first time that Baba had been heard saying something like this over a photo.
Swami explains that the Lingam (Golden Heart Lingam) contains the entire universe in microscopic form. The lingam is said to be the manifestation of the Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva (God as creator, preserver and destroyer). It is also the atmic consciousness (Holy Spirit) which runs like a thread through a pearl necklace. It is also our spiritual heart. In the Museum of Spiritual Inheritance in Puttaparthi Village, there is a quote from Baba in which he says that the lingam is that cosmic seeds of creation.
this golden lingam was manifested by Sathya Sai
Shirdi Baba Sai Baba Prema Sai
Saint Shirdi Baba said before he died in 1918 that he would return in 8 years. Baba was born in 1926 and when he was 14 years old he announced that he was the rebirth of Shirdi Baba. No one in the small, isolated village of Puttaparthi had ever heard of Shirdi Baba. Shirdi Baba is very much revered in India, thousands of people still flock to his Samadhi (final resting place) every day. Sai Baba said that he, too, would be reborn as Prema Sai 8 years after his death. Sai Baba manifested a ring with the image of Prema Sai on a devotee.
We now live in Kaliyuga, this is the dark age, so the avatar comes to guide people and usher in the golden age.
Sai Baba keeps telling us:
At all times and in all circumstances, practice repeating the name of the Lord with love and devotion. This name is the clap of thunder that turns mountains of sin to dust. He is the infallible cure for the terrible disease of delusion. He leads you to liberation from the bondage to birth and death and gives you eternal, never-ending bliss.
Therefore I advise you to solve the question of your reality through the spiritual discipline of name repetition.
We can repeat the name of Jesus, or Rama or Krishna, or Sai Baba. Whichever name is our favorite will lead us to our goal. Baba said it would be helpful to imagine the image of what you are worshiping - the way you love it, e.g. Jesus as the good shepherd or Sai Baba smiling lovingly.
You may say that the burden of past actions (karma) and its inevitable consequence must be endured. But the grace of God can burn off this burden in a jiffy. Knowing who and what you really are will save you from this burden in a flash.
When you see yourself in everything and everyone, then you have recognized the reality of what you really are. Therefore you have to show the same measure and the same quality of love that you have for me towards others as well.
