Tribute to His Holiness - 24 April 2013

Apr 23 (3 days ago)

Loving Sairam to all of you on the eve of Mahasamadhi Day of His Holiness Revered Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba…!!!

On this occasion,I take this as an opportunity to forward herewith an article in the form of a letter addressed to all by Principal (Dr.) Shripad R Zarapkar, former Principal, Siddharth College of Commerce and Economics, Mumbai, India.

Dr.Shripad Zarapkar recalls and recapitulates Divine Messages and Teachings so as to enable us to reconstruct our minds in letter and spirit, for enhancement in terms of human welfare and peace.

This article will make the reader realise that the Avatar of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba has not only preached the same universal teachings but also went miles further in implementing the same in terms of Educare, Medicare, Agricare and Sociocare and also towards spiritual upliftment of genuine seekers all over the world. The unifying force of Universal Divine Love reflected in the article, if practiced, will take the reader from Untruth to Truth, from Ignorance to Illumination and from Mortality to Immortality.

Drawing attention to our role in His Divine Mission,in one of the discourses Swami instructed,

“……. Active workers engaged in service should realise that there is ​no​ thing greater than service and seek to promote Love of God, Fear of Sin and Righteousness in society as the highest values to be cherished by all. Indeed if there is Love of God, automatically there will be Fear of Sin and when these two are there, Morality follows as a natural sequence ………… There should be no pretense in manifesting love. It should be based on the conviction that the Divine is present in every one, Do not arrogate to yourself any authority or power and claim credit for any achievement. All your name and fame are due to your association with Sai Organisations and the use of the Sai label. …….. It is the Sai Name that has conferred on you distinction and recognition. Therefore, bear in mind the Name Sai and carry on your work.

All should work together and share in harmony, act together, move together, grow together and share the common knowledge and experience with all. We want people who will completely identity themselves with the organization.

The direct individual relationship between each of you and Myself will remain always. If our relationship can be strengthened through the Organisations I shall feel happier.”

I think it would be appropriate for all of us to contemplate on what Swami instructed us while carrying out His Mission from time to time.

Warm regards,

Indulal Shah
