When the attributeless (Nirguna) 'Divine Essence' was agitated by the first faint urge of desire to become many, creation started. When it takes on human form as now, Sathya Sai Baba comes, endowed with 'attributes' (gunas) which are Kalyana (beautiful, agreeable, lovely, excellent, auspicious, beneficial). Ponder over the physical charm of the Sathya Sai form, the aureole of crinkly hair, the soft sweet smile, the star-deep eyes, the lovely nose, the shining forehead, the slender frame clothed in silk, the fairy feet - Oh! His is Kalyaana Swarupa indeed!
Then, reflect over His lovely voice, His nectar filled palm, His hand that assures and protects, His wisdom, His mercy and His Divine might. This is the texture of the vesture with which the Nirguna Brahma has clothed itself as Saguna Sayi. Just as when all colors merge, it becomes colorless white, when all Kalyaana gunas assemble in One Divine Person, He is really Nirguna attributeless.
Prema or love is the sweetest of the Kalyaana gunas Baba manifests. This Love flows towards all, in equal measure but the sick, the distressed, the weak, the poor, the down trodden share it in far greater measure than the rest. His compassion is spontaneous and supremely sustaining.
