QUOTE FROM:  "THOUGHT FOR 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." --BABA


"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;
No 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 on 25-12-1998

 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 real bliss..." 

"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 mind?"

"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."
