Lifetime Teachings 1- BABA SAYS.....

Jai Sai Master!

All through HIS life, Sri Shirdi Sai Baba lived a simple life and an exemplary life. He taught the principles of living to the world less in words and more in HIS actions. As mentioned in Sri Sai Leelamrutam by Sri Sai Master, HE never indulged in using big words like mukthi, seva, moksham or sakthipatham etc.. as HE felt they would only increase the arrogance of "me knowing all" which is detrimental to the growth as human being.

(extract from "Sri Sai Leelamrutam". To read the book on-line, click Sri Sai Leelamrutham)

What the above indicates is to focus on small issues in life like anger, talking ill of others, unforgiving others etc.. and correct ourselves. HE always asked everyone to become good human beings, full of unconditional love and caring for others. HE particularly disliked people talking ill of others, as HE felt that would only increase the hatred in the minds, thus spoiling the feeling of omnipresence of BABA.

Constantly contemplating on these simple words of Sri Shirdi Sai Baba and checking our thoughts and actions to become better every day should be our goal.

Jai Sai Master!!
