The Lord has said in the Gita that He saves from the consequences of sin, those who surrender their wills , thoughts, deeds and words to Him. 'Aham thwaam Sarvapaapebhyo Mokshayishyaami, Maa Suchah'. 'Do not grieve', says the Lord. 'I shall liberate you from the dire consequences of all un-moral activities engaged in by you, due to ignorance of the path of dedication'. 'I am Sarva paapakshaykara (the destroyer of the consequence of all sins)', says Baba. Only, we have to deserve that grace by surrender.
In fact, Baba instils supreme confidence, even in the worst sinner. He says there is no sin, what is so called is the effect of ignorance, ignorance of one's high heritage, destiny, equipment and excellence. Baba does not encourage self-condemnation, especially the sloka repeated by many during worship 'Paapoham Paapajanmanaam', etc., in which the individual calls himself a sinner born in sin, rolling in sin.
How can you condemn yourselves so, when you have as your core Sai Himself, He asks. But, when on account of ignorance or weakness, sin is committed, Baba says that, "repentance and the resolution to desist from it in future, with prayers to the Lord to endow the needed strength of mind, will help the process of cleaning". Baba says, "Dourbalyam is paapam (weakness is sin)". Weakness which refuses to acknowledge the Truth one sees and experiences, which dreads the ordeal of confession, which hesitates to stick to Truth.
