Baba once related a story, "Someone asked another, which is the greatest and the grandest thing? The answer was the earth; but two-thirds of it is the sea; the sea is drunk by the sun; and the sun is just an orb in the sky, the sky is just one foot measure for God, who manifested as Trivikrama; Trivikrama or the Lord resides in the heart of the Bhaktha. So the greatest and the grandest thing is the 'Heart of a Bhaktha'. That is the aalaya of Baba.
Baba says that if you desire to know the address of the Lord, consult verse 61, chapter 18 of the Bhagawad gita. 'Iswarah Sarva Bhoothaanaam Hriddese, Arjuna, Thishtathi'. The Lord is established in the region of the heart of all beings, O Arjuna, seek and you shall find Him there, in your own heart.'
"I am the Kshethrajna in every Kshetra; I am the knower in everything that has to be known". That is why Baba announced once, in Telugu, 'Andarilonu Sayi Unnaadu' - 'In everyone, there is Sai'. Our task is to clear the mind of smog and the miasma of smouldering passion, so that His Effulgence can reveal itself to us in all its glory.
Draupadi, the Queen of Pandavas, called on the Lord once in overwhelming anguish, "O! dweller at Dwaraka". When He appeared before her after some little interval, the Lord said, "You called me Dwaraka Dweller. So, I had to come to you from there. If you had only called me, Hrudaya vasi, heart-dweller, I could have come quicker from your own heart!". Baba relates this story to teach us where to place Him and find Him.
