Embodiments of Love!

Truly did not think that I would speak today. Why, because I never commemorate these anniversaries. However, to fulfill the desire in the mind of the man who came from China (the one who was responsible for the Chaitanya Jyothi project?) today, he came with joy, and requested (Me) wanting to do this anniversary, and he brought numerous people.

I will do anything to give them satisfaction. All My works are to give satisfaction (to others). I have no desires at all. I do not have any resolves at all. Based on your resolves, My truthful resolves increase. (A.K. says only 'thoughts' and Swami says aside to him, 'Sathya sankalpa'. A.K. says, 'truthful thoughts.')

Truthful thoughts. So, your thoughts just simply come as thoughts. But Mine are truthful thoughts. They don't change. So, I will do anything for your happiness. (Applause)

Today, our Indulal Shah went to so much trouble regarding this. Truly, he only is the main cause for this Chaitanya Jyothi. Even if I was not here (in Puttaparthi), he was coming for that every month and seeing to it. If one has sincere interest, even any mighty tasks may be achieved. So, it is said:

Sruddhavan Labhyate Jnanam.

One who has sincerity will attain Wisdom.
(Sanskrit sloka)

Chaitanya Jyothi took such a blissful form only (due to) his sincere interest and so much exertion. Hence, no matter what activity has to be done, we should also take a strong determination. Without this determination we are equal to a dead body. We must achieve. Only that but we should not be weak and leave it in the middle. Don't give place to that weakness at all. We have to achieve strength in everything.

Therefore, so many more activities like these will take place in our Prashanti Nilayam. Today this Puttaparthi which was just a small hamlet, has turned into a big town. It has turned into a big city. Even in a city, if you go out, if 100 rupees is given they will give (rent you) a small room for one day. Yet, if you go outside now (here), it is not possible to stay in a small room unless 1,000 rupees are given. What rates they are! What are these villages? See how the appearances are changing!

Aerodrome has come. Super Specialty hospital has come. They are not even in big towns. More, more, more, more will come. To show this to the whole world, it will begin within a month. To change this (bring about change), numerous people, I am also telling you a few names.

They are giving Noble prize to many people. The man who gives the Noble prize (Chairman of the Noble prize Committee) is coming here on the 22nd. The ones who will show this to the whole world, TV people, they are all coming here on the 22nd.

Who called them? Who invited them? If all things like these are seen, all sorts are coming here. No one has invited them at all. No one is giving them a (special) welcome. Yet, they themselves are coming. What is the reason? That Chaitanya Jyothi is here and it is pulling them. (Meaning, I think, Swami Himself!) (Applause)

In this type of situation, I said that this time the Birthday should not be celebrated at all. It should not be done anywhere henceforth. I have resolved. I have told all of them also. I also told Chiranjirao, "Don't make any arrangements for this Birthday." I also said not to make any attempt (for arrangements at) Hill View (Stadium).

What is My Birthday? The day that bliss increases for all of you, that only is My Birthday. The whole country should be well (kshemam= well-being, welfare, safety, security, or happiness). The whole world should be well. The society should be very well. When the society is not joyful, what is the use of My (Birthday)? The joy of everyone is My beginning. That only is My bliss.

So, all of you remain happy, follow the path of Truth, resolve Truthful things, and the whole country should be changed into (that with) truthful resolve. OK, even if it is not possible for you to change all countries, at least the people near to you should change their resolves into truthful ones. Each day, each person should transform even five people onto the spiritual path. Change five people per day. The whole country will change. However, don't change (the people) into bad. Change (them) onto a good path.

Resolve Truth. Truth must be spoken. Dharma should be practiced. Live peacefully. Experience bliss. Resolve (to have) these qualities and try to change.
