THE DAY" - Date : 10-Oct-2001
"A bar of iron sinks in water; but beat
it into a hollow vessel and it will float merrily and even carry
some weight. So too, man's mind sinks easily in the sea of senses;
beat it hollow, hammering it with the Name of the Lord. It will
float, safely, on a sea of troubles.
Do not be
like gramophone records singing someone else's song, ignorant of
the genuine thrill of music. Sing from
your own experience the Glory and Grace of the Lord."
"Twenty years back when Christmas was celebrated for the
first time in Prashanthi Nilayam, I sang a song:
Love is My form, Truth is
My breath, Bliss is My food;
My life is My message, expansion
is My life,
No season for Love, no reason for Love;
Birth; No death.
If anyone asks you to tell about Sai Baba, sing
this song. It will convey the whole message. Tell them, Love is
His form and His life is His message. Develop the feeling of
brotherhood of man and fatherhood of God." - Sri Sathya Sai Baba, CHRISTMAS SANDHESH, Divine Discourse
Sai Baba Said:
"Let the different faiths exist, let them flourish and let
the Glory of God be sung in all the languages, and in a verity of
tunes. That should be the ideal. Respect the
differences between the faiths and recognize them as valid as long
as they do not extinguish the flames of unity..."
"Bhajan (devotional singing) is one of the processes by
which you can train the mind to expand into eternal values.
Teach the mind to revel in the glory and majesty of God; wear it
away from petty horizons of pleasure. Bhajan induces in you
a desire for experiencing the Truth, to glimpse the Beauty that is
God; to taste the Bliss that is the Self. It encourages man
to dive into himself and be genuinely his real Self. Once
that search is desired, the path is easy. One has only to be
reminded that he is divine..."
"You should sing wholeheartedly with the desire to please
God. God makes no distinction between a proficient musician
and a beggar in the street. It is the devotion and sincerity
that matter. Merge your soul in the Bhajans you sing.
Spiritualize your Bhajan singing. Then you will experience
"Your life is a song on the Glory of God. Sing it
with all your soul, sing it aloud, sing it in chorus so that the
atmosphere polluted by the noise of greed, hatred, and envy can be
purified by the holy vibrations..."
"Those who sing Bhajans get what can be called 'double
promotion' for they derive joy and distribute joy. You can
relish the Bhajan as you make it a daily function, like eating and
sleeping. You eat twice a day for the upkeep of the body:
should you not do Bhajan at least once for the upkeep of the
"The Lord can be addressed by any name that tastes sweet to
your tongue, or pictured in any form that appeals to your sense of
wonder and awe. You can sing of Him as Muranga, Ganapathi,
Sarada, Jesus, Maitreyi, Shakti; or you can call on Allah, or the
Formless, or the Master of all Forms. It makes no difference
at all. He is the beginning, the middle, and the end; the
basis, the substance, and the source."
