DIVINE MESSAGE FOR CHRISTMAS
God is omnipresent. All are the embodiments of God. Today, people
attribute various names and forms to God, like Rama, Krishna, and Jesus,
and celebrate their birthdays. Truly speaking, can there be a birthday
for God? No. To think that God took birth on a particular day in a year
is a sign of ignorance. God is in the form of breath in every man. 'Soham',
this symbolises the process of inhalation and exhalation. 'So' means
'That' (God), 'Ham' stands for 'I' (individual). Though there are two
words, namely God and individual, there is no difference between them.
They are one and the same. God in fact has no birth. He does not need to
achieve any goals. However, in order to instill faith in the minds of
people, He incarnates. If there is birth, there has to be death too.
But, God is beyond birth and death. He has neither a beginning nor an
end. To think there is a birthday for God is only your imagination.
Devotees limit God to a physical frame, worship Him, and celebrate His
birthdays. That is all a figment of their imagination and does not
correspond to the truth.
Turn your vision inward and search for your true Self. Self-enquiry
leads to true Sakshatkara (vision of God). Once you have Sakshatkara,
you will be free from all worries. It is a mistake to say that you have
not experienced God. He is present in you. A person kept a ten rupee
note in a book and forgot about it. He was carrying it all along. One
day he was in need of ten rupees. He asked his friend to lend him ten
rupees. His friend readily agreed. But before giving the money, his
friend wanted to see the book he was carrying. As he opened the book,
the ten rupee note fell from it. He was happy that he had the required
amount with him and that there was no need to borrow it from his friend.
Likewise, today man is in search of God, since he has forgotten his
innate divinity. Man can realise God only by self-enquiry.
You are making various efforts to experience Divinity. Do not search for
God outside. He is in you. Everything is in you. All that you see
outside is illusory. Do not be carried away by the illusory world. Only
then can you attain peace and ultimately realise the truth "I am I". To
know this simple truth, you need not go through various sacred texts.
Keep the texts aside. Enjoy the taste of divinity within. Develop inner
vision and visualise your true Self.
Divine Discourse: December 25, 2003
Jesus was a noble soul. He declared that he was the son of God, but he
never said that he was God. When Jesus was born, three royal wise men
from the east were guided by a star to a cowshed in Bethlehem where the
baby Jesus lay in a manger. He was radiating divine effulgence. The
first of them said, "This child will love God." The second said, "He
will be loved by God." The third said, "He will love one and all. He is
not different from God." The one who loves God is the messenger of God;
the one whom God loves is the son of God; the one who understands the
principle of unity becomes one with God. This is the inner meaning of
the statements given in the Bible. The one you think you are; the one
others think you are and the one you really are. You should understand
the import of these statements.
God is not moved simply by sweet words. You must translate those sweet
words into action. You may be a great hero in giving lectures on a
platform, but if you are a zero in putting them into action, it will be
of no use. You must become heroes in practical life. That is what gives
Me happiness. Jesus Christ and Mohammad were highly noble. How could
they acquire such greatness and goodness? It was only by their good
deeds. Therefore, you must acquire goodness along with greatness. In
fact, goodness is greater than greatness. Several great souls took birth
in this land of Bharat. Saint Thyagaraja in one of his famous Kirtans
sang, "Endaro Mahanubhavulu, Andariki Vandanamulu ?" (there are several
great souls, I prostrate before all of them). A great saint Thyagaraja
himself, exhibited such humility.
Whoever has acquired the quality of love will never be hated by others.
Even the wild animals will not harm you when you have love. The great
rishis of yore spent their lives peacefully in dense forests amidst wild
animals. The wild animals fought among themselves, but they did not
cause any harm to these rishis. What is the reason? The rishis possessed
one single weapon of love which protected them from these wild animals.
In fact, these wild animals also used to love these great rishis. What
man has to acquire is this great weapon of love. Love alone can protect
us, not atom bomb or hydrogen bomb. Consider My own example. I have one
and only weapon, that is love. Because of this, millions of people from
every nook and corner of the globe gather around Me. Did I ever send any
invitation to you? No. It is only My pure and unsullied love that draws
Divine Discourse: December 25, 2002
No spiritual practice can yield the desired result if the senses are
misused. Have sacred vision. Speak good words. Hear only what is good.
Entertain noble thoughts. There is no greater spiritual practice than
this. This was the teaching of Buddha. The same was taught by Jesus too.
The fishermen wanted Jesus to fulfil their worldly desires. Peter wanted
more fish. But ultimately, he realised the futility of worldly desires.
He wanted to go beyond the level of body and the mind as per the
teaching of Jesus. Jesus told them to give up hatred and to love all and
serve all. He exhorted them to develop faith in the principle of unity.
Many disciples of Jesus interpreted the teachings of Jesus in their own
When he was being crucified, he heard an ethereal voice, "All are one my
dear son, be alike to everyone ". When the mother Mary was shedding
tears, Jesus told her, "Death is the dress of life." Death is like
changing of dress. Do you find anybody wearing the same dress every day?
Just as you change your dress every day, you change the body from birth
to birth. It is the body that dies, not the life principle. The Spirit
is immortal and non-dual. To realise the non-dualistic nature of the
Spirit was true wisdom, said Jesus.
Mathew was one of the twelve disciples of Jesus. He was an income tax
collector by profession and used to meet the fishermen to collect taxes.
Jesus used to impart sacred teachings to the fishermen everyday. Mathew
noted down all his teachings and wrote the holy Bible. Later on, many
others wrote the Bible based on their own feelings. Nowhere has Jesus
ever stated that he was God or the Master. He always addressed God as
his Father. He has shown the path to experience unity. He never gave
scope for multiplicity. He always said that all were divine.
Divine Discourse: December 25, 2001
Today you have to remind yourselves of the ideals Jesus stood for. For
ages, from time to time, many noble souls, endowed with immense
spiritual power, have taken birth to propagate sacred teachings to the
world. They struggled hard to make the world a good place to live in.
But without understanding their noble intentions, foolish people tried
to ridicule and persecute them. Right from his birth, Jesus had to face
many trials and tribulations. When the name and fame of noble souls
spread far and wide, many people become jealous. Asuya (jealousy) and
Anasuya (absence of jealousy) are sisters. The history of Bharat is
replete with many examples that bear testimony to this truth. Asuya has
three children, viz, kama, krodha and dwesha (desire, anger and hatred).
The Divine Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheswara were born to Anasuya.
The three wicked sons of Asuya (i.e. desire, anger ,and hatred) caused a
great deal of suffering to Jesus, who strove tirelessly for the peace
and welfare of society. Jesus was the epitome of compassion and the
refuge of the poor, needy and forlorn. But many people tried to create
troubles for Jesus, since they did not like his sacred teachings and
activities. Their hatred for Jesus increased day by day. Even the
priests turned against Jesus as they became jealous of his growing
popularity. The fishermen held Jesus in high esteem. They started
following his teachings and became his disciples. Many people out of
jealousy laid obstacles in his path and even tried to kill him.
Jesus had twelve disciples. Judas was the twelfth disciple, who
ultimately betrayed Jesus. At that time, there was only one Judas, but
today there are many such 'Judases'. Today the world is engulfed in
unrest because of the rise in the number of betrayers like Judas. They
are so mean-minded that they are easily tempted by money. Judas betrayed
Jesus for just a few pieces of silver. Even two thousand years ago,
money became the primary objective of man. Because of their greed for
money, people resort to evil and unjust ways, distort the truth, and
make false propaganda. This was the case then and it is so even now. No
one needs to be afraid of such false allegations. Why should one be
afraid of the mistake that one has not committed? In the past, many
evil-minded people were jealous of the divine personalities who attained
worldwide fame through their teachings of truth and righteousness. Even
today there is no dearth of such wicked people.
Ultimately, what happened to Judas? He felt miserable for having
betrayed Jesus for monetary gains. He shed tears of repentance. He hit
himself, saying, "Fie on me! I am a traitor. I betrayed my own master
and God." Betrayal of God is the worst of all sins. Such betrayal can
never be atoned in any number of births. So, never try to betray God.
Love all. Salute even those who criticise you,because Divinity is
present in all. Do not give scope for anger and spoil your mind. Pray to
God with love. Even in the past, all noble souls and incarnations had to
put up with criticism.
Consider love as your very life. Love alone makes one's life sacred. One
with love alone is a true human being. Love is man. Man is love. Man is
God and God is love. It is love that unifies all. So, develop love.
Tread the path of truth and righteousness and lead a peaceful life.
These four values are the life supporting principles. There are no
greater powers, no greater ideals, and no greater supports than these
human values of Sathya, Dharma, Santhi, and Prema. Adhere to these four
values and carry on with your life sojourn.
Divine Discourse: December 25, 2000
Today (Christmas) is mainly celebrated by Christians, but do not make
the mistake that it is only for Christians. It is a holy and happy
occasion to be celebrated by the entire mankind. Get rid of religious
and philosophical differences and enlarge your mind (Matha - religion
and Mathi - mind). You house the single divinity only in your heart.
Then the entire humanity becomes a single race. There is only one
religion in the universe and that is divine love (Prema). The one
without this principle of love in his heart is not a Christian, Muslim
nor a Sikh and is no better than a demon. This principle of complete
unity of all religions is now manifested only in Prasanthi Nilayam.
Imagine what a phenomenon it is that Christians from so many countries
in this world have joined together here to celebrate Christmas. There
are people from sixty-four countries assembled here. They are all of one
heart. This is true devotion. Swami reiterates it is not a celebration
for Christians only but is a holy occasion for the entire humanity. It
is the desire of Swami that such differences are completely eradicated.
Divine Discourse: December 25, 1999
When Jesus was born three Arabian kings came to see Him. They were
overjoyed at seeing the newborn babe. While returning, the first king
said to Mary, "Mother, you have given birth to a child who loves God."
The second king said, "Mother you have given birth to a child who will
be loved by God." The third king said, "Mother Mary your child is not
different from God, both are one and the same." Once we understand the
inner meaning of these three statements, we will know the truth. The one
who loves God is the Messenger of God; the one whom God loves is the Son
of God; the one who understands the principle of unity becomes one with
Worship Jesus by following His ideals. Jesus pointed to three stages.
The first one is, "I am the Messenger of God." He wanted to propagate
the message of God. The second one is, "I am the Son of God." The son
has a claim to father's property. What is the property of God? Truth,
Love, Forbearance, Peace and Righteousness are the properties of God.
So, man has to strive to attain these qualities. He has to practice,
experience and propagate these virtues. Only then man deserves to be
called Son of God. The third one is "I and My Father are One." This
stage is attained when the principle of unity is realized. When Jesus
reached this stage, He had no suffering at all. He was always blissful
and was prepared for anything. Even at the time of crucifixion, Jesus
was smiling, because he realized that He was not the body. Body is bound
to perish, but the indweller has no birth and death. Truly speaking the
indweller is God Himself. Jesus understood that body was merely vesture,
and He was the indweller.
You should have the firm faith that you are the Messenger of God.
Propagate Swamis message to the entire world. Some people may like it
and some may not. Do not bother about what others say, be it "yes" or
"no." 'No' and 'yes' relate only to you, but for Sai everything is yes,
yes, yes. There are no defects in God. All words and deeds of God are
perfect. You see the reflection, reaction and resound of your feelings.
They are psychological in nature. God always gives good alone.
Understand and experience this truth.
Divine Discourse: December 25, 1998
Where there is love, there is no room for hatred. Do not be envious of
anyone. When this evil quality appears, Love takes to flight. A pure
heart is the abode of Love. Where there is Purity, there is Unity. Unity
leads to divinity.
Today Purity is absent. How, then, do you realize Divinity? You must
offer everything to God without any desire. Dedicate your all to God.
This was the teaching of Jesus. He considered everything as an offering
When he was being nailed on the cross, people around were weeping. At
that moment an ethereal voice declared: "All are one, My dear Son! Be
alike to everyone. " Jesus declared: "Death is the dress of life." Just
as we change our clothes, we change also our bodies. The bodies are
vestures (for the indwelling Spirit). Hence bodies should be regarded as
mere vestures. We should not worry about the body.
How many heed such sayings? You must learn to lead ideal lives. That is
the right way to observe the birthday of Christ. Few care to observe the
ideals of the great teachers.
Christ was the victim of envious persons who were opposed to His
teachings and who leveled accusations against Him. Devotees of God
should not mind the criticisms of envious persons. All good people have
to face such troubles. They should treat everything as meant for their
Divine Discourse: December 25, 1997
Develop the love of God. All other forms of love are not love at all,
but only fleeting and impermanent attachments. Man's biggest folly is
forgetting his divinity. All should realize that they come from God. All
are children of God. Everyone should seek to get nearer and nearer to
God. That is sadhana. You must feel that God dwells in your heart (
Hridayavaasi). You must develop compassion in the heart, because without
it the heart is only a stone.
That is the message of Jesus - the message of love. Love is God. Live in
love. Start the day with love. Spend the day with love. End the day with
love. This is the way to God. Only the person who is filled with love
will be dear to the Lord.
Today there are devotees here from many countries - Germany, Japan and
others. Whatever happiness you may have experienced here, you will have
to go back to your countries when your money is exhausted or your visa
expires. Your aim must be to acquire a permanent visa to stay here
permanently. That is got by God's grace. You can get it through love and
love alone. When you have that love, your proximity to God is ensured
Embodiments of Love! There is love in everyone of you. Develop that
love. Share it with others. When you have this love there is no need for
you to go in search of ashrams. There are some foolish persons who go on
hopping from one ashram to another. This is sheer folly. There is no
need to go anywhere. The Divine is in your heart. Adhere to one belief
firmly. Do not change your faith from day to day. Follow one path with
firm faith. That is the Love principle.
Divine Discourse: December 25, 1996
Christ determined to make the giving and sharing of Love his main
objective in life. Such love was met with many obstacles and losses.
Christ considered a true man to be the one who can face obstacles and
move forward in Love. Do not give in to losses and pain. Do not be
carried away with pleasure. Face everything with equanimity.
Christ could never see suffering passively. In Jerusalem doves were sold
and killed as an offering. Christ decried the violence committed towards
the poor creatures. He began to undertake the holy task of stopping such
violence and freeing the captive birds. Some men began to cast
aspersions, slandered him and tried to punish him.
"Salutations to any living beings go toward God," say the Vedas. ("Sarva
bhuta namaskaram; Keshavam prati gachate.") We think there is no meaning
in saluting both the one who praises us and the one who criticizes us.
Saluting the one who praises us is understandable, but what is the use
of saluting the one who accuses us? We must have continuous relationship
with accusations, because without them there is no beauty or value to
praise. Without criticism, appreciation loses its meaning. That is why
every word, every thought, has some obstacle or no beauty or value to
praise. Without criticism, appreciation loses its meaning. That is why
every word, every thought, has some obstacle or other. For the good, bad
is a shadow. For pleasure, difficulty is a shadow. All opposites are
interrelated. The pleasure and pain, the profit and loss, exist
together. Christ went on pursuing his path in the face of many obstacles
with strength and endurance. He gave His life for the service of men,
for the principle of Love and propagation of Love.
The season of Christmas is associated with Christmas Grandpa or Santa
Claus. Tokovan was his original name. He was born in Turkey. He began
his career as a priest and gradually began to attain spiritual heights.
How did he become a spiritual giant? By the spirit of sacrifice. He used
to give a chocolate or a doll or a gift to any child he met. All his
life he kept on giving continuously. When Christmas was approaching, all
the children used to run behind Santa Claus. He used to carry all the
gifts in a bag and distribute to all the children. In what manner did he
distribute? He said, "Here is a token of God's Love. Here is a token of
God's Love," and thus distributed them. Eventually he came to be called
Christmas Grandpa, and his original name was forgotten.
The important message which I want to convey today, which Jesus also
propagated, is one of Love and compassion. So boys and girls, on this
holy and sacred day, when we celebrate the birthday of that holy
personage, we must conduct ourselves in accordance with his message. It
is easy to celebrate birthdays, but we must also keep in sight the
purity and message of the person whose birthday we celebrate.
If you are devotees of Sai, what are the ideals of Sai? Share Love, be
united, consider all to be the children of God. Foster the brotherhood
of man and fatherhood of God. When we accept and obey these, we can call
ourselves devotees of Sai.
Divine Discourse: December 25, 1995
Today we celebrate the birthday of Christ. It is said that when Jesus
was born in a manger, three kings were led by a star to Jesus's place of
birth. ln fact, they were not kings but three shepherds. One of them,
seeing the infant Jesus, observed: "This child will be a lover of God".
A second one said: "No. God will love him." The third one said: "Verily
He is God Himself" .
The true significance of these three statements is: To love God is to be
His Messenger. To be loved by God is to be a son of God. The final state
is to be one with God. As Jesus said: "I and my Father are one". Thus
all persons are messengers of God. This means that they should divinise
themselves. When can men call themselves Sons of God? Recognize what
pure actions are done by God, selflessly for the sake of all. There is
no trace of self-interest in Him: Everything He does, says or thinks is
for the good of others. On the other side, everything men do, speak or
think is born out of selfishness. Men have become puppets in the hands
of selfishness. Men can describe themselves as "Sons of God" only when
they are completely free from selfishness and become Godly. To call
yourself the "Son of God", you have to manifest the qualities of the
Jesus exemplified the spirit of social service. The inspiration for this
came from His mother, Mary. From His childhood Mary taught Him such good
qualities as truth, kindness, compassion and justice. Jesus had learnt
His lessons from His mother and developed His spiritual faith. After
they returned from Jerusalem, Jesus felt that service to His parents was
His foremost duty, because He owed everything to them. ln this spirit,
He used to assist His father in His carpentry work. Joseph passed away
when Jesus was thirty. He sought His mother's permission to devote
Himself to the service of the needy and the forlorn. After leaving home,
Jesus had Himself baptized by John. Then for forty days Jesus observed
severe austerities without food and drink. At first He considered
Himself as a "Messenger of God". After the penance He realised He was
the Son of God. He began His ministry with a group of fishermen as His
first disciples. He taught them that they should first seek the Kingdom
of Heaven. To enter that Kingdom they had to cultivate loving hearts.
Then, their hearts would become the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus further
declared to them: "I and my Father are One".
Christmas is celebrated today in many countries. In every country small
groups of people go to their respective churches, listen to the sermon
and return to their homes. In some places people eat, drink, and make
themselves merry. But nowhere in the world can you find Christmas being
celebrated with the solemnity and holiness obtaining in Prasanthi
Nilayam. Here are gathered men and women from all countries. There are
many denominations among Christians and the members thereof celebrate
Christmas in their separate ways. Only in Prasanthi Nilayam do
Christians of all denominations and men and women of other faiths join
to celebrate Christmas. All of them work in unison. Here is a concrete
manifestation of the Brotherhood of Man and the Fatherhood of God.
Divine Discourse: December 25, 1994
Jesus taught that God is Love. Instead of recognizing this basic truth,
men are allowing hatred, envy and other evil qualities to pollute their
love. Man is gifted with the quality of love not to express it for
selfish purposes but to direct it towards God. Jesus declared that there
was nothing great about returning good for good. They should do good
even to those who harm them.
It is not right to celebrate Christ's birthday by feasting, drinking,
singing and merry-making. The ideals taught by Jesus should be put into
practice. That is the right way to celebrate his birthday. Whomsoever
you adore, you must try to live up to his teachings. What kind of
devotion is it when the devotee does not practice what he professes? It
Divine Discourse: December 25, 1988
There are many who are deeply devoted to Jesus. Their duty is to glorify
the great message of Jesus. The most important message of Jesus is the
establishment of "Peace on Earth and goodwill among men." Without peace,
mankind cannot achieve progress in any sphere--- material, spiritual or
In the Treta Yuga, Sri Rama came to establish the reign of Sathya and
Dharma (Truth and Righteousness). In the Dwapara Yuga, Sri Krishna came
with the mission to promote Prema and Shanthi (Love and Peace). In the
Kali Yuga (the present yuga), Sathya, Dharma, Shanthi and Prema are the
purposes of the Divine Mission. Hence you must make these four the
guiding principles of your life. When you adhere to these four
principles, Ahimsa (Non-violence) issues as a natural result. There is
no use in merely invoking the name of Jesus and praying to Him without
regard to His most vital message: "God is in everyone. Do not revile
anyone. Do not cause harm to anyone." This was Jesus's greatest message.
Divine Discourse: December 25, 1985
Wealth without wisdom becomes an instrument of exploitation and tyranny.
Wisdom without wealth becomes mere fantasy and a bundle of blueprint.
Use makes them worthwhile; misuse makes them disastrous. It is like the
knife in the hands of maniac, it becomes an instrument for murder; in
the hands of a surgeon, it becomes an instrument which saves a life! Are
you doing good with wealth? Are you benefiting others by means of
wisdom, that is the test. This day, Christmas, when you celebrate the
birth of Christ, resolve to lead the lives of Loving Service, to the
weak, the helpless, the distressed, the disconsolate. Cultivate
tolerance and forbearance, charity and magnanimity. Hold dear the ideals
He laid down and practice them, in your daily lives
There is one point that I cannot but bring to your special notice today.
At the moment when Jesus was emerging in the Supreme Principle of
Divinity, He communicated some news to his followers, which has been
interpreted in a variety of ways by commentators and those who relish
the piling of writings on writings and meanings upon meanings, until it
all swells up into a huge mess.
The statement itself has been manipulated and tangled into a conundrum.
The statement of Christ is simple. "He who sent me among you will come
again!" and he pointed to a Lamb. The Lamb is merely a symbol, a sign.
It stands for the voice--Ba-Ba; the announcement was the Advent of Baba.
"His Name will be Truth," Christ declared. Sathya mean Truth. "He will
wear a robe of red, a bloodred robe." (Here Baba pointed to the Robe He
was wearing!). He will be short, with a crown (of hair). The Lamb is the
sign and symbol of Love. Christ did not declare that he will come again,
he said, "He who made me will come again." That Ba-ba is this Baba, and
Sai, the short, curly-hair-crowned red-robed Baba, is come. He is not
only in this Form, but he is in every one of you, as the Dweller in the
Heart. He is there, short, with a robe of the color of the blood that
Divine Discourse: December 24,1972
"Call me by any name - Krishna, Allah, Christ. Can't you recognise Me in
any Form? Continue your worship of your chosen God along the lines
familiar to you and you'll find you are coming near to Me, for all Names
and Forms are Mine."
—Sathya Sai Baba
"Forms of worship, or phraseology of adoration, or the style of address
may vary, but all religions are directed towards the same consummation.
The same bloodstream circulates in all the limbs of the body. The same
divine Stream activates the entire universe. Visualise the Supreme
Architect, that Incomprehensible Designer, that Unseen Life-giver. This
is spoken of as the realisation of the Fatherhood of God and the
Brotherhood of Man."
—Sathya Sai Baba
"All religions teach one basic discipline; the removal from the mind of
the blemish of egoism of running after little joys. Every religion
teaches man to fill his being with the glory of God and evict the
pettiness of conceit. It trains him in the methods of detachment and
discrimination so that he may aim high and attain liberation."
"Believe that all hearts are motivated by the One and Only God; that all
faiths glorify the One and Only God; that all Names in all languages and
all forms man can conceive denote the One and Only God. cultivate the
attitude of Oneness between people of all creeds, all countries and all
continents. This is the message of love I bring. That is the message I
wish you take to heart."
—Sathya Sai Baba
"Jesus was a Messenger of God; but note this also; all of you are
messengers of God. You are all His children. Jesus and His Father are
One. You and God are also one, and you can become aware of it. Whatever
activity you may be engaged in, wherever you may be, however you may
fare, be convinced that you are ever in God, that all is Divine, that
all acts are offerings to the glory of God, and thus make your lives
full and fruitful."
—Sathya Sai Baba
"Jesus sacrificed His life for the regeneration and welfare of mankind.
Today, there are some who exaggerate the so-called differences between
different faiths and, for their own selfish purposes, exploit these
differences; they thereby bring a bad name to the founders of those
religions, who were spiritual giants. No Prophet, or Messiah asked his
followers to hate other religions or the followers of other faiths.
Every religion has declared that God is One and that the Divine dwells
in every being. Jesus also proclaimed the truth that the One Spirit
resides in all beings."
—Sathya Sai Baba
"All faiths are inter-related and mutually indebted to each other, for
the principles they teach and the desciplines they recommend are
similar. The Vedic tradition is the first in Time. Buddhism, which
appeared about 2500 years ago, is its son. Christianity, which was
influenced by much in the Orient, is its grandson. Islam, which has the
Prophets of Christianity as its base, is the great grandson. All have
Love as the fundamental discipline of the mind in order to merge man
with the Divine."
—Sathya Sai Baba
"God sends sages, saints and prophets to unveil the Truth and Himself
appears as an Avatar to awaken and liberate mankind. Two thousand years
ago, when narrow pride and ignorance defiled mankind, Jesus came as the
embodiment of Love and Compassion and lived among men, holding forth the
highest ideals of life."
—Sathya Sai Baba
"Let the different faiths exist, let them flourish, let the Glory of God
be sung in all the languages and in a variety of tunes; that should be
the idel. Respect the differences between the faiths and recognise them
as valid as far as they do not extinguish the flame of unity."
—Sathya Sai Baba
"As the air we breathe is of God's creation and available to all, so the
awareness of God and His Power and Mercy has to be available to all.
True seekers on the spiritual path, must hold onto this wide outlook and
on the universality of this message. Then the conflict between disparate
faiths and credos disappears by itself, and peace and love will be
restored on Earth."
—Sathya Sai Baba
