During the two previous sessions we completed all of the September conversations that Bhagavan
had with the students and the teachers on the verandah at Prashanthi Nilayam.
said, "By 5 o'clock in the morning, we would complete our bath and return during this season."
And then Bhagavan
said, "Weekends we would go to a place and we would sit under the trees.
grandfather Kondama Raju used to do this.
"Oh Swami, very interesting.
started devotional songs during that time.
For Me, All Are One
also recalled a visit to the house of an untouchable.
That was the situation in those days; but this lady followed Bhagavan
And Swami said to her
, "Don't do that.
That was the level of honesty and integrity in villages in those days, Bhagavan
We were all really wonderstruck when Bhagavan
just came out and stood there in front of us and said, "Look here, Anil Kumar.
materialized vibhutthi for that boy, and the doctor applied the vibhutthi.
...Bhagavan Baba, the Doctor of doctors, not only diagnoses the diseases, but He gives the prescriptions too.
That's what happened on the 3rd of November.
said, "The weather and the climate are like Kodaikanal.You'll enjoy the whole of Puttaparthi and Prashanthi Nilayam as if it is air-conditioned."(Laughter)
And then some boys said, "Swami, we want to recite Vedam." Baba
said, "Ah, wait."
On the same day of October 29th Baba
said, "In Veda chanting, there are two portions.
immediately replied, "Both are there in Veda so that those people who have desires will recite Chamakam and those people who have no desires will recite Namakam.That's all.The Vedas give provisions for both these types of people, for both categories of people."
also said, "Look here, those ancient sages did penance for a long time and they said, 'Vedaha Vedam Purusham Mahantam Aditya Vurnam Thamasah Parasthath.' This is a quotation from Veda.
said, "And saints declared that God is everywhere, inside and also outside. ‘Anthar Bahirscha Thathsarvam'. ‘Antha' means ‘inside'. ‘Bahirscha' means ‘outside'. ‘Thathsarvam' means ‘Divinity is present everywhere'. ‘Vyapya' means ‘spread'. ‘Narayana Sthitha' means ‘God is installed everywhere, inside and outside.'" That's what Bhagavan said, explaining Veda that day.
Now I pass on to the 22nd of October.That evening Swami asked one boy to speak.That boy did his MSc. in Bio-Science and he also completed his MBA.He is an outstanding student.Now he is serving as Technical Officer in the Super-Specialty Hospital.
Swami asked him to speak.He
talked about two miracles that were very interesting.
It seems one day a father came to the hospital with his
daughter.The doctors examined the girl and said she
should be operated on because of a heart problem.
The doctors reported this matter to Bhagavan
, "Swami, the father said that he
cannot afford 200 rupees per month.
asked two boys to speak on that day.
Charcoal is useless stuff; but in the hands of Bhagavan
, we are transformed into priceless, most precious diamonds.Thanks to Swami."
made mention of another point, "Look here, you must have noticed that all the school children speak fearlessly.
Because of their innocence, they have total Love for Bhagavan
was talking to the professors on the veranda.As you know, usually the boys will perform a drama on the 22nd of November, which is the Convocation Day for Sathya Sai University
.Every year they stage a drama.
On October 19th, in a most casual manner Baba
asked, "Mmm, what drama are you getting ready?"
said, "There is nothing great in killing people.
was explaining this.
Then immediately I said, "Swami, wasn't it wrong on Kunti's part not to tell the truth -- that Karna was her
eldest son?Was it proper of her
to hide it like that?" Bhagavan
is really supreme.He
will never humiliate any character.He
will make every character sublime. He
said, "No, no, you are mistaken.
...According to Bhagavan, Bheeshmacharya was a real professor or acharya because he practiced what he preached, whereas the other man, Dronacharya, was only a professor by title because he did not practice what he preached.
This was a first time revelation from Bhagavan
The Parents of Rama and Sita
Then, on that same day, the 18th of October, He
made a reference to the Ramayana.He
spoke about Parasurama.Parasurama was trying to kill all the Kshatriyas (warrior caste).He
had taken a vow to kill all the Kshatriyas.He
killed all except for two, Dasaratha and Janaka.
replied, "Someone who is performing a yagna should not be killed.
immediately said, "Go to the root cause of action.
said, "To transcend the mind and go beyond the mind, know the mind and what it is."
This is an indication that Bhagavan
is a Mother to us all.
I Suffer On Your Behalf
Here is another ‘Pearl of Wisdom' that was shared on the 9th of October.What was it?Bhagavan
takes upon Himself the sicknesses of others.What happens when He
does that?Will He
suffer?Why should He
This is an example of how Baba
takes upon Himself the sufferings of people and gives them total relief.
Before I conclude, here is another story.
came out and said, "Have you seen those two doctors?"
"Swami I did not see them because the doctors went into the interview room and came out, and I sit over on the steps, as You know.So how can I see them?Impossible!Swami, I did not see them." Baba
said, "Those doctors are from Germany.Both husband and wife are heart specialists.They are top doctors who have performed several heart transplants.They are heart transplant experts, and they have been invited by the Government of Australia to go there and serve."
Before leaving for Australia, they wanted to have the Darshan of Baba
and visit His
Hospital.They knew about Baba
and had heard of the work done in the Super Speciality Hospital
.So, having heard about Swami, they wanted to come here, study and then go to Australia with His
Inspiration and Divine Blessings.
