Lifetime Teachings 2- BABA SAYS.....

Jai Sai Master!

In an ocean, as we search deep, we get pearls. However, in Sri Sai Leelamrutam, we just need to focus, with mind in proper place, to find many-a such thing, which are useful in our lives than any of those rare stones. Sri Shirdi Sai Baba, all through HIS life, taught people the way of living, whether a house holder, a Sanyasi, or any other. For everyone, HE gave out the message loud and clear.

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

In the above, HE says, the root cause of anger or jealousy is the feeling of "I". Through a small example, HE showed how to think above normal materiliastic way by shunning the feeling. One day, a farmer comes to Baba and Baba says, "this guy is praying to protect his haystack, as it is burning. Everyone feels happy when they get something and feels sad when they lose something, forgetting the fact that everything belongs to GOD. He takes with one hand and gives with another. Nothing to worry".

Sri Sai Baba used a simple situation to explain people not to worry about materialistic gains or loses as there is nothing that belongs to someone permanently. Many of us use these words in our everyday life, but never feel so and hence the anger and frustration keep coming out. One needs to understand and learn to implement it appropriately. Those who wonder how this can be used in various situations, should just remember what Sri Sai Baba said and it will help to fight the "power of I" to come out with a solution.

Jai Sai Master!!
