Sarva Jiva Hitam Evam, Bhajatye Katyamastitam
Sarvada Vartamaneshu, Sayogi Mayivartate

I am present in all living beings. I accompany the yogis
who always understands the difficulties of others
and who conducts themselves with equanimity.
(Sanskrit sloka)

Embodiments of Love!
The individual, who recognises that the Atma in all living beings and the Atma in himself are one, will always live in the presence of God. Though such a person may be an enjoyer, one who renounces enjoyments, a wandering religious mendicant or an ascetic, he will live all times and in all situations feeling that the presence of God is his wealth. Therefore, what is it we should do? Meaning:

Sarvata Paani Paadam,

Feet, pervading everywhere.
(Sanskrit sloka)

The truth should be recognized that the nature of Atma in all living beings is one. Mankind, unable to understand the nature of his life properly, is falling into distortion, increasing misunderstanding and is forgetting Truth. However, due to the crazy illusion of, ‘I am the body’, forgetting one’s own true nature and forgetting the form of Truth, time is wasted having faith in the transient, impermanent and unreal body.
First and foremost one should not try to understand individual truth. However, people of today are trying to develop the physical body. This is a big mistake. After that, he is journeying towards the condition of society. After that, he enters into spiritual line. Therefore he is succumbing to numerous difficulties because he is unable to recognize and unable to know the Truth that he should know and the Truth that he should recognize.
Hence, the Truth should be recognized that this only is the message of Sai. S-A-I: Sai. ‘S’ means that first and foremost the spiritual aspect should be understood. ‘A’ is the association that should be known well. Afterwards, individual should be entered into. Spiritual, association and individual: you should know about it in this way. (However,) people are going in reverse: individual, association, spiritual. What happens due to going in reverse? People are journeying backwards and becoming distant from the presence of God.
Due to all of mankind today undertaking this type of journey, they are wasting their time. Time is very important. Time is also a measure for man. Time is the true God. So, unable to understand such a Divine time in the right way, he is wasting it with many mistakes.
First and foremost that which we should enter into is the spiritual. (After), this spiritual should enter into association. Only after that it should be entered (practised) in the society. After this association, we should understand unity and oneness in the individual aspect. Then we will easily understand the individual. If you enter into individual in the very beginning, you won’t understand the spiritual at all.

The root cause for all of this is that Hiranyakasipu, Hiranyaksha, Kamsa, Durvasa, all people like these distanced the spiritual and entered into individual. They had plenty of power and capabilities. Unable to understand their power and capabilities, they became mixed up.
Hiranyaksha was greatly powerful. Hiranyakasipu was the first among scientists. What is the use in knowing so much science? ‘How is this substance? How did this substance originate? How did it come about?’ There is no joy at all that is gained from knowing about all this.
Therefore, Hiranyakasipu and Hiranyaksha filled their heart with negativity. They gave place in their heart to worldly objects and impermanent, transient, untrue and worldly feelings. All of these are only temporary. They filled their heart with such fleeting negativity. What is the use of so much strength being in them?
All scientists of today have gone up to the moon. However, in those days Hiranyakasipu and Hiranyaksha even went to the sun. Why did scientists like them, having such great power and capabilities, fall into such defects? They journeyed with physical, worldly, ephemeral and secular objects. Therefore, though they had so many capabilities, they couldn’t attain Divinity.
So, we are putting power and capabilities to bad use. We are not entering into that which we should try to recognize. Man has very great strength. For that reason, the Upanishads cautioned:

Utishtata! Jagrata! Praapti Varane Bodhata.

Arise! Awake! Stop not till the Goal is reached.
(Sanskrit sloka)

Oh crazy fellow! Get up from the sleep of ignorance! The dawn of wisdom is arising. Turn your vision in that direction. Make thamo guna (the quality of inertia) distant, give up worldly desires and understand to some extent the transient and impermanent world.
Therefore, though Hiranyaksha, Hiranyakasipu and Kamsa had such great power and capabilities in those days, they were unable to attain God's presence even a bit. They even transformed the stars. They realised the secrets of creation. They also investigated into the subject of the mysteries of creation. Though doing so much, finally they were unable to understand Divinity even a bit.

The son of Hiranyakasipu, Prahlada, though a small boy, was able to understand. Father questioned, “Son, what have you learned?” (Prahlada replied,) “The teachers taught me. They taught Dharma (righteousness), artha (wealth) kama (desire) and moksha (liberation from attachment). Many books were studied, father. I have learnt the secret of that which was learnt, father.” Then Hiranyakasipu said, “What is it, son?”
“Wherever is seen, there is nothing else seen except Divinity. God is present everywhere.” When he (Prahlada) said that, he (Hiranyakasipu) had a lot of anger. He threw his son out. “Is this what you studied? You said that you had studied a lot. Is this your knowledge? There are so many matters related to the world, like desire. Instead of studying these, why did you study about the transient and impermanent Divinity?” Then his father had a lot of anger (and asked), “Where is God?” Prahlada, a small boy, said:

Father, never have the doubt that,
‘He is in this and not in that.’
He is present everywhere.
Wherever searched,
He is seen there.
(Telugu poem)

His father felt very bad. (He thought,) ‘Though I am such a great scientist, is this small boy coming to teach me?’ He (Hiranyakasipu) said, “Where is He? Show me!” He (Prahlada) said, “Wherever one searches, He is found there.” (Hiranyakasipu said,) “Then, is He in this pillar?” (Prahlada answered,) “He is there.”
(Prahlada had) Unwavering devotion. No one was able to change such an unwavering Prahlada. Then his father hit that pillar. God manifested from that pillar. Meaning, he was worshipping the body, feeling that only this body is Divine. God manifested the day that he broke body attachment.
Today no matter how educated, how much power and capabilities one has, he is sleeping in the sleep of ignorance. There is another illustration to this. How should we make God to manifest? Unwavering devotion, a mind that does not change and firm faith: when these three are present, we can make God manifest without fail. Prahlada said this.

Before there is anything else, there is milk. From milk we made curds. From curds we extracted butter. From the butter we extracted ghee. This only is the direct manifestation. The milk is Divinity, God. One made that milk of God pure and extracted butter.
However, you may know this or not: when one goes to heat butter to extract the ghee, a bad smell comes. Yet what is this? Taking butter from milk, can butter be so foul smelling? He investigated. “Dear one, this butter is jiva tatwa (symbolises the individual). All this bad smell in you is the smell of bad qualities. When effort is made to completely remove them, the bad smell will be removed.”
Therefore, while man does spiritual practises, the bad smell of bad qualities come when he goes to a few stages. All bad smells come. However, completely control them. There is some water contained in the butter. As long as there is water in the butter, the bad smell cannot be avoided. All of that water should become vapour. When it (butter) is boiled more and more, all of that bad smell comes. Then it (the water) becomes vapour. Then, when all of this water becomes vapour we will get pure butter that is odourless.
Therefore, the body of man contains the mind, intellect and heart. That is the grace of God, which comes from God. Hiranyakasipu asked, “Who are you? Are you body?” No. “Are you the mind?” No. “Are you the intellect?” No. “Are you the heart?” No. Then what are you?”
“Foolish father! The mind, intellect, heart and ego: where did all of these come from? All of these are only that which came from milk. Hence, when there is milk, what do I have to do with all of these other things? I don’t need this body, I don’t need the illusions of the mind and I don’t need the wavering of this chittha. I have given up all of these. Mind, intellect, heart and ego, due to me giving up all of these, I have a pure, unpolluted and steady chittha like butter.”
If there is this or that much of the water relating to the world, this will also have bad smell. So when boiling butter, not even a bit of water should remain in it. If water remains in it, bad smell will enter.
Many of you would have noticed: when boiling butter, it is not possible to go there (due to bad smell). We should boil the water until it completely becomes vapour. No bad smell will come at all after all of the water becomes vapour.
Hence, as long as the water of these worldly desires remain in the mind, this bad smell will not leave. Though Hiranyakasipu and Hiranyaksha also were so great, they had such bad smell due to containing some water. We cannot avoid bad smell as long as worldly desires remain in the mind.

Today also so many people sing bhajans, give discourses and go about road to road. What is the use of going about? They are going about like dogs do. However, the bad smell of worldly desires in them doesn’t leave. As long as that bad smell of water is in the mind, they cannot attain any sacredness.
All human beings today have succumbed to this bad smell. They have become habituated to this. Doing bhajans, doing meditation, doing japa and doing austerity: they are falling into worldly desires within these. All of these are like butter that contains water. The bad smell of desires come into it. This bad smell of desires should not enter into it.
Not only that. These wicked “devotees” are increasing numerous types of desires still more. Are they devotees? No, no, no, no! Why should this bad smell come if they are devotees? It wouldn’t be possible for bad smell to come. They have bad smell in the body, bad smell in the mind, bad smell in the intellect and all the works that they do have bad smell. They are unable even to know their own bad smell.
Importantly, we have to recognize what is the root cause of the bad smells that arise in us. No matter how great one may be, no matter how many difficulties, losses, sorrows and suffering are experienced, but one should see that one has a mind that does not waver or change. Firm faith should be maintained. Then only one will be able to attain the proper kind of peace.
For that reason, Prahlada said, “Father, in spite of all the suffering you give (me), no matter how many difficulties are experienced, though the body is given numerous types of suffering, I won’t bother about them. I will never lose unwavering love for God. What is the use of me existing after losing it?”
If any tiny amount of difficulty comes to devotees of today, they undergo change. Then, if any doubts arise, they will completely change. They will lose faith. However, they don’t realise that they are losing vishwasa (faith). They are actually losing their very swasha (breath). Hence man should do sadhana with firm faith, regardless of the situation. This only is true devotion.
Devotion, devotion, devotion: it is not devotion to only do worship, say Names (of God) and go about on the roads. Install sacred Divinity in your heart. It should be seen that bad smells don’t enter into the body. Desires should be swept aside and burnt. They should be burnt. How should they be burnt?
They should be completely put in fire. If any small amount remains in us, that only is the root cause for your bad smell. That is the root cause for bad smells to enter into us. That is the root cause for all bad behaviour. That is the root cause for all bad habits. That is the root cause for all bad actions. Therefore, in order that bad habits not to enter into us, we should see that we don’t have these kinds of desires.
However, today due to the effect of Kali Yuga, every devotee has desires, desires, desires and desires. How are these desires? They are equal to a pig. (Laughter) When a pig comes from afar, there is so much smell. How can they bear putting that pig in their heart? Therefore, if this bad smell should go, the small bit of water that remains in it, bad feelings, should go. Only when they leave, there won’t be any bad smell in this at all.

Embodiments of Love!
Mankind is certainly lucky. Not only lucky, he is also letting misfortune come. Due to letting misfortune come, he is becoming completely evil. He doesn’t even have authority to reach the presence of God.
(People like that say,) “I have read so much. I have written so many books. I am giving very great discourses.” What is the use of giving them? Why are you giving these discourses? To deceive others. You are cheating yourself. Speaking about all the feelings that are not in you, you are making yourself evil. If even one that is recognized (practised) is spoken about, it is enough.
You have also kept heaps of untruths in your heart. So we have filled our whole heart with untruth. We have developed adharma (unrighteousness). We are immersed in ashanthi (peace-less-ness). Therefore, first and foremost untruth should be made distant. Burn unrighteousness. The Vedas said:

Sathyam Vada, Dharmam Chara.

Speak Truth, act righteously.
(Sanskrit sloka)

Truth is the form of God. If we make this Truth, which is the embodiment of God, distant, what will protect us?

Embodiments of Love!
You may be proud that, ‘we are doing great sadhana’ but first and foremost make distant the bad smell that is in your heart. That is not what we should develop. What we should develop is sacred fragrance: that is the good qualities. That only gives supreme peace. Like that:

Nirgunam, Niranjanam,
Sanathanam, Niketanam,
Nithya, Suddha, Buddha,
Muktha, Nirmala Swarupinam.

Atributeless, unsullied,
eternal, always pure, pure intellect,
free, unpolluted form.
(Sanskrit sloka)

Therefore, first and foremost you should become pure. Filling your whole heart with evil and bad feelings is ruining you. You share all of these bad feelings with all people and also make them wicked. It (becoming pure) is not something that comes with books. It is even less made available through discourses. There should be sraddha and devotion. That only is sraddha (steadfastness, sincerity, interest).

Sraddhavan Labhyate Jnanam.

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

Only one who has sraddha will attain true wisdom. Hence, we should develop sraddha. We should increase love. A sacred heart will begin only when there is sraddha and love. Your heart will transform into being pure only on that day.

Embodiments of Love!
Importantly, what are the sadhanas that we should do? To make the heart pure. In Tamil Nadu there was Thiruthonda Alwar. He used to say:

Chittha Suddhi Odu Unnai Pujay Sheydene, Chitthathil Vandane
Rama Rama, Rama Rama, Rama Rama!

I worship Him with a pure heart.
Then He comes into my heart.
Rama Rama, Rama Rama, Rama Rama!
(Tamil poem)

He said, “I am calling You, ‘Rama, Rama, Rama, Rama’ with a pure heart. If I don’t have a pure heart, I wouldn’t even have the authority to call ‘Rama’. I shouldn’t think of any Name with a polluted mind.”
Today the whole world has become full of pollution. Behaviour pollution, word pollution, and listening pollution: every action also is also pollution. Then how will devotion come? It is a big mistake. Saying, “I have devotion, devotion, devotion,” people keep devotion on the top of their head. They put on a mask in this way and are deceiving others. Don’t deceive anybody.

Help ever, hurt never.

Therefore, you should not deceive. You will be one who cheats yourself. Numerous types of ‘devotion’ and ‘surrender’ have increased in the world. However, today the right time has come to purify it, therefore we should. Just as efforts were made to purify the Ganga River purifies, in that same way the feeling of devotion arising in man’s heart should be purified. This cannot be done with mere words. Work should be done with the hands (one should act).
Thoughts, words and action should be unified. Mind, word and action should be one. Mind (action) in one place, word in another place and thought in still another place: if it is like this, what use is it? The three should be unified. This they say is:

The proper study of mankind is man.

Mind, word, deed, the three should be unified. Yet it is not unified anywhere at all. Only robberies, untruths, injustices, misdeeds and bad behaviour are becoming unified. The individuals that should develop sacred feelings today are becoming unsacred individuals. What is the use?

They are doing business everywhere, taking the name of Sai. They are deceiving in all ways with the name of Sai. I don’t like this. People like this are not devotees at all. (Applause) Going to some countries and going to some places, they are selling the name of Sai and filling their stomachs (earning a livelihood). This is a big mistake.
Sai, I, will never submit to a single paisa. (Applause) Will such a one as Me enter into such business? The one who does this kind of business, whoever they are, without letting them near your house, you have to say GET OUT! (Applause)
Therefore, first and foremost, business should not enter into devotion. Do your own business. However, don’t do business using the name of Sai. You may do business to foster your family. Yet today, day by day this type of business (using the name of Sai) is increasing. Numerous types of businesses are going on by going village to village, saying false names and using the name of Sai. They have entered into all countries also. This type of business has begun in all directions: London, America, Japan, Germany, Italy, Singapore and Malaysia.
Therefore, we should not enter into such places at all. We should keep our heart pure. Then only you will be one who lives, or else you will be lifeless, one who has lost the life principle. One should do the obituary rites to such people like this but should not do worship to them.
Hence the thing that we should do is: sacred feelings should come when praying to God. How should these sacred feelings come? Sacred Divinity becomes distant only when worldly desires come.

Embodiments of Love!
All of you are coming with such devotion and sraddha. Yet unable to understand the inner secret, you are becoming naïve. People from numerous countries also: you are spoiling your life with bad habits like these. When they (bad people) come close, you should go far.

Tyaja Durjana Samsargam.
Bhaja Sadhu Samagamam.
Kuru Punyam Ahorathram.

Leave bad company.
Join good company.
Undertake meritorious deeds
day and night.
(Sanskrit sloka)

That only is what we should do.

Tyaja Durjana Samsargam.

Leave bad company.
(Sanskrit sloka)

A snake may be kept near but don’t keep these bad people near. So, don’t allow men like snakes to come close. I never ask anyone for even a paisa. So many activities are continuing on. I didn’t ask for even a naiya paisa anywhere. You know. (Applause) Until this day I never entered into the subject of money. Money only is the God for many ‘devotees’ today. Money is God to them. If they begin such wickedness, how can they be devotees? It has nothing to do with devotion at all.
Now, I said before that I would bring up children without any parents. I will help them to progress. I will deposit one hundred thousand (rupees) in each of their names and after they are adults, arrange their marriage and future, and then give them leave to go. Up till today this hasn’t been told to anyone (no money has been requested for this use.)
However, today some people use Swami’s Name. Saying, “We are fostering all these children, we are giving donations for Swami,” in this way they are making the donations their own. Is there any other worse deceit that can be done to Swami? They are all betrayers of God. Keeping Swami’s name and making wealth their own: I won't accept this. You may live by begging but don’t use My name for this (making money).

The old students came to Me today in the early morning. All of you know well: C. Srinivas is in Bangalore. He studied in our college and progressed in all ways. He also did work in the college as warden, and he fostered it in many ways. Finally, he didn’t get any (outside) job at all. He said he didn’t want it. “I want to do service to Swami.” With that object in view, “What does Swami like? What is necessary? What activity should be done?” He carried on his activities with plans like these. He only is looking after the entire hospital that is run in Bangalore.
He came to Me today, “Swami, is anyone today giving free education? Who will give life to us? If we observe the hospital, (they are giving) free medicine, free medicine. There also they don’t take any money at all. They don’t take anything from small children either. Therefore, (because You are) doing so much for us, fostering us and making us to progress, how should we do service to Swami?”
They made a plan and came. “If there is no education in any village, we should build a school there. Hence, Swami must inaugurate this today.” (I replied,) “Dear one, don’t be hasty, don’t be hasty.” All of the youth today proceed with speed. No.

Start early, drive slowly, reach safely.

Don’t be in haste. He (C. Srinivas) said, “Swami, we are so many people, old students, who are here. Because You have educated us, fostered us and brought us up, isn't it necessary that we do even a bit of service? Therefore, we should show in this way our gratefulness to Swami. It should be announced this evening.”
I said, “Good.” I accepted. If anyone says they will do good works, I will not say ‘no’. Hence, the ones who want to do things like this should take responsibility and enter into activities. Only when it is done like this, even the old students will progress a lot.

There are many old students from Madras and Hyderabad. So many are even coming from Madras. But in a few situations, stitched old cloth that is suitable to cover a hole.’ All of these are the dramas appropriate to the leaders. If all big people, the ones who are presidents, enter into wickedness, the youth will also enter into wickedness. Therefore, it is not possible to say what karma (bad fate) the cities of Madras and Hyderabad have.
I said so much that I would buy some land and I would build, I would build (required buildings). However, they don’t have that sraddha and devotion. They act (pretend) as if they have sraddha and devotion. However, what is the use in acting? It is loss only to them.
There are so many devotees from the past who are feeling very bad. Madras has falling into that same plight. Hyderabad has fallen into that same plight. Youth are aspiring, ‘it should be done, it should be done’. However, what are they able to do? In everything the elders won't do and they won't let them (the youth) to do. (Applause).
So, what I want is, I don’t need temples. I don’t need any lands. Do seva with joy. Even when they (the elders) don’t accept your prayers, leave it. Their karma (bad fate) is their own. You who are youth should enter into (activity) and have the suitable sraddha. (Applause)
Give suitable type of help to all the ones who have no protection. Give food to the ones who are suffering without rice and food. Throughout the world the head consists of food. So the three, food, head and God, should be unified. Therefore, if you wish to do seva, you can do any seva that is helpful to others. Hence, you don’t need to wait for these people or those people.

If you have any necessity, ask Me. (Applause) I will give but don’t ask for donations anywhere, even a naiya paisa. One collects donations for one hundred rupees and advertises it, (spending) 1,000 rupees. Therefore, we don’t need advertisements. If you need anything individually, ask Me and I will give. (Applause) Why do you have these difficulties while keeping Swami who is like a mountain with you? (Applause)
Don’t take refuge anywhere. If you go and take refuge with them, they will speak very big philosophy. This philosophy is not worth single paisa. (Applause) Useless, useless, useless! (Applause) Not only here (Bharath). It is also like that in all places. Go to England and see, go to Japan and see, go to Germany and see: no matter where one goes there are businesses like this.
Wherever one goes, this is the news that one must listen to. I receive this news: much comes. I put this nuisance aside. Is this what I must listen to? “All are is fine, all are happy, all are comfortable,” things like that I should listen to. (Applause) I have a lot of suffering knowing they are undertaking this type of journey, by selling Swami’s name. Devotion should not be sold at all. Even the ocean may give drinking water but this kind of (fake) devotion won't give it at all.
None should let near the one who asks for money. Even now I am very late (delayed). I am not even asking anyone at all. Why should I keep all of these agents? Don’t let any of these fake agents near. I don’t have any need of money. I have need of love. Give and take, give and take, give and take. (Applause) If I have that one thing, love, it is enough.
Sanctify your life with that love. There is no devotion that excels love. Therefore, do even any small task with this love. If you even give a tumbler of water to someone who will drink it, you will be greatly sanctified. What else is needed other than that? Thirst must be quenched and bliss should be experienced.
Today many people, 90% of the people who are ‘devotees, devotees, devotees,’ are phoney. In the past it used to be so joyful. All the devotees came together and they used to spend time so joyfully. Day by day, day by day and day by day, phoney people are increasing. As soon as they get up in the early morning they will put bottu (a mark of devotion on the forehead). (Laughter) They will put on a scarf. However, they then wander about. What wandering do they do? The dogs that wonder about on the streets are better than them! Therefore, we should not let dogs like this near us.

Embodiments of Love!
Develop love. However, there are so many individuals who have love. Experience that love without tearing that love or breaking that love. There is no need to build Me temples anywhere. There is no need to build any inns, no need to build any meeting places and no need to build any places of worship. I don’t need anything at all. Give the temple of your heart, that’s enough. (Applause) I will be so happy there.
Temples are built like this and (bad) news comes from there, by that My mind is spoiled so much. You don’t know how much My mind suffers. However, except for the pain that, ‘they are doing like this,’ I don’t have any suffering. They are keeping the name of Sai and going about in this way. This is very bad. Bad things should not be done anywhere with the Name of God.
If you don’t have the capability to do (something good), close your mouth and sit. Only do that but don’t continue to make the promises of ‘we’ll do.’ Due to these promises, all is being spoiled. Divinity should be experienced with love and in silence.
Today the people of all countries have gathered here, therefore it was necessary to say this today. If anyone comes near, do namaskaar (pay your respects) to them, it’s enough. They will come softly and say, “Sir, we are doing this business.” We should say, “A namaskaar to business, go away!” (Laughter) The ones who make friendship for business are fools, fools: fools, fools, fools, fools! (Laughter) We should not make friendship with business at all. Say goodbye to this kind of friendship and go.
If you want (or need) anything, ask Me. (Applause) I will never do any kind of deceit to anyone. I won't do it. I won't speak untruth. However, today it became necessary to speak about the devotees for sinful actions that are happening to devotees. Hence, whoever it is I am hoping that from today that such situations will not be embarked upon.

Numerous people are entering numerous types of paths and are putting obstacles in the way of spirituality. In the past when I went to Bombay, wherever was observed there were only devotees. They used to do nagarsankirtan (singing the Name of God throughout the town). They used to do bhajans. They even used to do bhajans in the aerodrome. They used to do bhajans throughout the roads. Today there is no namasmarana (repeating the Name of the Lord) anywhere at all. There are many devotees. But they don’t like to enter into this kind of things.
Now and then I feel a lot of suffering. From the beginning I used to go so much to Bombay, Madras and Hyderabad. They gained a lot of fame and are well known. Today My mind doesn’t feel like going. Such destitute people have begun there. Therefore, first and foremost we should send the destitution far away.
The people who contemplate on God should be treated kindly. God will never leave anyone at all. He offers hospitality to everyone. Divinity will not have any kind of differences. Outside people may have hatred. However, God has no type of hatred at all. Love, love, love, love, love, love: develop this love.

Tomorrow is the valedictory function. I will tell you tomorrow what you should do and what you should make others to do. (Applause) I don’t want that many devotees should come to this hall and fill it up. All of this is only quantity.

I want only quality.
Why barrels of donkey’s milk?
One teaspoon of cow milk better.

Therefore, it’s enough if there are one or two people who have good feelings. Therefore, the State Presidents and Trust Conveners should take the proper caution and take the proper care or else leave it (resign). We will look after things. (Applause) We didn’t give it (the responsibility and position) to you because we can’t do it. We can do things for ourselves.
There is also the All-India President. The All-India President also should take note. If anyone in the organisation is like this, throw them out immediately. (Applause) They should not keep them for even a day. Won’t anything continue on without them? Any amount can continue. Such fools like this should be thrown out from here.
Today My mind has such difficulty. From many days it (My feelings) have been rising, rising, rising and overflowing so much. However, an opportunity did not arise then to whom should I tell? Today numerous people have gathered so this is the right opportunity. Noticing this right time, it should be told to you.

So, Embodiments of Love!
All of you develop love and slay hatred.

Help ever, hurt never.

Hence, make distant all bad feelings. In the Sathya Sai organization you have to embark upon a very lasting, true and eternal path.
People only act good when they come to Puttaparthi. As soon as they go beyond this road, they play their own (former) plays. Therefore, such bad intellect has to be made into ashes today. When it is like that, you should attempt to develop theism (faith in God).
God is always completely ready. He is ready to give what is asked for. Hence, don’t keep any doubt regarding God. God is always with you, around you, beside you and in you. (Applause) Therefore, you will never be distant from God. Make the appropriate effort to develop such a Divinity. Don’t make this into a business.

Embodiments of Love!
I am saying this with so much love but I don’t have any hatred or difficulty. Hence, recognize well this truth. Tell the ones who don’t know. Devotion to God should proceed silently. No one should spoil their life with untruth in any way. Hence:

Sathyam Bruyat.

Speak the truth.
(Sanskrit sloka)

Truth is our God. Therefore, spend your life with this Truth and end your life with this Truth. Tomorrow bring all of your doubts. Without fail I will dissolve your doubts. However, only make distant bad company. One should immediately make bad company distant. If you do that, that will be so much help to Me.
I am not asking to do work for Me at all. I don’t need any help with My (personal) work. I have My work: who is doing it? I Myself am doing it. I Myself am doing even very small works. I won't ask anyone to do this work. So, the whole world is doing so much help to Me. (Applause) Therefore, you don’t need to do that help for Me. Take part in service to society well, and rectify it in the right way.

Bhagavan ended His Divine Discourse by chanting the bhajan, ‘Hari Bhajana Bina Sukha Shanti Nahi…’

Many people are suffering from four days. Why? Because they are also feeling very bad thinking that I have taken someone’s (illness) and I am suffering. I have no suffering at all regarding that which I have taken with love. From where will I get pain? I am taking their pain, isn't it? I won't have pain here.
However, there is a system to this. There are rules and regulations for everything. I have taken someone’s (illness). However, as much as they have to experience it, it cannot be escaped (for Me) to have that pain to that extent. At a time like that, I took theirs. They escaped it but I have taken it so I have to experience it, don’t I? Hence, I cannot avoid experiencing it. The time that he had to experience it, that much time I have to experience it.
I have no suffering at all and no difficulty at all. You know: truly, if there were so much swelling, would it be possible to talk so much? No! So I don’t have that suffering at all. The entire suffering has reached ‘this thing’.
All should be well. All should be blissful. (Applause) All should be comfortable. I have no suffering at all. You don’t need to feel bad, thinking that I have suffering. Then, if you have any suffering, give it, I will take it. (Applause) Hence, all of you be joyful, knowing that I have no suffering. (Applause)
