Every people seeks its language of good and evil: this its neighbour understands not. Its language has it devised for itself in laws and customs. But the state lies in all languages of good and evil; and whatever it says it lies; and whatever it has it has stolen. (Friedrich Neitzsche)

Even if we can't change our desires, we can change our attitude towards our desires




When we want to live a principle-centered life, our worldly desires often act as obstacles, for they tempt and divert us. Even if we don't want those desires, they keep coming. Why is that?




Because our present desires arise from the past impressions stored in our mind. As we have indulged in them in the past, they keep tempting us towards similar indulgence. Still, we can change our attitude towards those desires.




In the past, we might have looked forward to those desires believing that they will trigger us to enjoy. But now, we can learn to see them as unwanted visitors. Indeed, the Bhagavad-gita (05.23) recommends such tolerance of unhealthy desires. As long as the body is there, desires will keep coming, but if we can be spiritually connected, we will stay well-situated and will be satisfied.




How do we learn to neglect our unwanted desires? By having something more positive to do. If some unwanted person comes to meet us, and we are sitting alone and idle, saying no to them may be difficult. But if we are already busy meeting someone and have a whole schedule of meetings lined up, saying no to that unwanted visitor will be much easier.




The most empowering engagement is devotional service to Krishna, the all-pure, all-powerful Supreme whose parts we are eternally. In such service, if we keep ourselves busy in one engagement after another after another, then by saying yes to Krishna, saying no to our lower desires will become much easier. And as we keep consistently saying yes to Krishna and no to worldly desires, gradually they will decrease and disappear.




Thus, by striving to intensely and consistently say yes to Krishna, we can change our attitude towards our lower desires and by the resulting devotional purification, eventually change them.

Some may insist that only Sai Bhajan should be sung, only the name and form of Sathya Sai be used. This is a great mistake. You are thereby dishonouring Sai. If you attach yourself to Sai and detach yourself from Krishna, you get a plus there and a minus here; the resultant gain is zero.. Do not develop fanaticism or sectarianism in spirituality. Others may have these, but that is no reason why you should meet them with the same failings. Try your best to avoid such infection. If others require help, go and help them! This will make them realise the loving universal nature of your attitude. Never encourage differences based on region, language, religion, or any such flimsy grounds. Narrow-minded ideas will undermine the spiritual outlook, the attitude of unity and oneness which is the keynote of the spirit. Spirituality is a field where inner joy, inner satisfaction, and internal purity are always more important than outer expression!

Food is the medicine for the illness of hunger; drink, for the illness of thirst; to cure bhava roga (affliction of the cycle of birth and death), God (Bhagawan) is the medicine; for the disease of desire, Jnana (wisdom) is the cure. For the infection of ashanti (anxiety), the remedy is bhajans. For the diseases of doubt, despair and hesitation, which is common to all aspirants, the most effective remedy is doing good to others (paropakara). Service today has become a common word but its value is much depreciated. Really speaking, only those who are afflicted with equal agony, at the sight of pain and suffering, distress or disease, have the right to serve; for, they are not serving others, they are serving themselves, serving to remove as fast and as intelligently as they can, their own agony! When you feel that you are serving your own pain, you are curbing your own ego. Otherwise service heightens your self-esteem and develops a sense of superiority, which is harmful spiritually.

Jiva(person) is an exact replication of Jagath.
Even though the Maha Vaakyam Brahma Satyam Jagath Mithya is true, only a realized soul who sees and treats the dual aspects of the world alike can say this statement. If a person who is under the influence of ignorance (darkness) utters this sentence it would be Danta Vedaantam because his state is similar to the state of a beggar who is not aware of the hereditary treasure lying beneath the ground where he is residing.
Eswara is as Atma in all Bhutamulu in the form of Chidaanandam. Only the realized souls remain under the spell of Chidaanandam irrespective of season like Eswara who is Sadaa Vasantam.

Eswara is Tri Kaalatmakam and Kaalateetam.To signify this Tatvam, Eswara wears Naagendra Haaram around his Kantham. Here Haaram points out to Chakram and Naagendram points out to Kaalam as the bite of a cobra causes death and death as inevitable(Dharmam) points out to Kaalam.. .
Accordingly Eswara having Naagendra Haaram as an ornament around his Kantham is Nityam and the Aatharam (basis) and controller of Kaala Chakram.
The Kaala Chakram consists of three states namely Bhuta Kaalam, Vartamana Kaalam and Bhavishyat Kaalam like a garland consisting of three flowers of three different colors. Kaalam is like the underlying invisible thread that connects the above said three flowers as a garland.
Thus Eswara holding Kaala Chakram around His Kantam is Kaalateetam.
As we always remain in one of the above said three states only, we are not in a position to realize Eswara. Once we conquer the fear due to , we would be empowered to realize Eswara.
