'If you want to characterize Me, you can best do so, by calling Me Premaswarupa', says Baba. he is Premaswarupa; or Premaatma; that is to say, the embodiment of Prema or love. His love is for all who suffer and starve, all who strive and struggle, all who are simple and sweet, all who are sages and saints.
He says, "bring Me your burdens and take from Me, Joy and content- ment'. He cannot bear His children (of all ages and climes) standing in the sun or rain, writhing in hunger and pain. Baba syas, 'the mother will bear all the burden of pregnancy and all the strain of delivery; but she will not wish ill for the child that gives her all that strain. She will only wish it well'.
"So, too, I will bear all the burdens you place on Me, all the bother you give; I can only wish you well and bless you however ill you behave". His very assumption of this Sathya Sai form and His acceptance of this Mission of Compassion are proofs of His Prema.
He sees us through and through; He reads our past, knows our present and is aware of our future-yes! of everyone of us. He knows every strand that binds us to the world around us forbidding us to rise Godwards. But yet, He draws us near, fondles us, fosters us and makes us feel free, full, friendly and fearless. That is the measure of His love.
