SAI HUMOR: Words of Wisdom from Swami

[Sathya Sai Baba can take words that we use so casually in everyday conversations and in His inimitable style, He shows how meaningful these words can be.]

Puttaparthi: When visiting the ashram to see Baba, He tells us that if we leave our ego's behind and come with open hearts, He can fill them with love He has come to give. So when visiting Puttaparthi we should PUT APART THE I.

Properties: are not Proper Ties.

Parents: are given that name, because it is through them that we have the wonderful chance of life on earth. For the sacrifices that they have made for us, we must PAY RENTS to them.

Peace: People clamor "I want Peace", But they do not let go of I(ego) or Want(desire). I and Want deal with the outside world. Peace is inside, pieces are outside.

Patience: Doctors need more patience, not patients.

Interview: Don't clamor for an interview. Instead search for the INNER VIEW.

Diamond: Why do you seek a diamond to give you joy? Seek instead the state of DIE MIND, which will give you pure and lasting joy.

Skill: Knowledge must develop by balance into skill or else it degenerates into KILL.

Hello: Do not greet anybody when the heart is filled with anger distrust etc. Have, instead, a pure hollow from which a whole hearted Hello emanates.

Television: is TELE-VISHAM (POISON).

Study: to be STEADY.
