Education Wing - Master Of Light

"I have come to light the lamp of Love in your hearts, to see that it shines day by day with added lustre. I have not come on behalf of any exclusive religion. I have not come on a mission of publicity for a sect or creed or cause, nor have I come to collect followers for a doctrine. I have no plan to attract disciples or devotees into my fold or any fold. I have come to tell you of this unitary faith, this spiritual principle, this path of Love, this virtue of Love, this duty of Love, this obligation of Love".
4th July 1968, Baba

Sathya Sai Baba – The Essence Of His Teachings

Through his speeches and writings, Sathya Sai Baba has offered a veritable ocean of knowledge and guidance on all aspects of spiritual, religious, and value-oriented living. He has often repeated that it is not necessary to drink the whole ocean to know its taste, that it is not necessary to read all scriptures to live a life of joy, peace, and love. It is enough to put into practice one aspect of spiritual teaching.

A few drops of the ocean of Sathya Sai Baba's teachings, an attempt to encapsulate its essence, follow. Sathya Sai Baba urges mankind to:

• Believe in God – For there is only ONE GOD for all mankind, though He may be called by many names.
• Follow sincerely their respective religions and live their daily lives in consonance with the teachings of good behaviour and morality.
• Respect all other religions – for no religion advocates the negative and lower qualities of man.
• Perform selfless service to the poor, the sick, and the needy without thought of reward or fame.
• Cultivate in their lives the values of truth, divine love, right conduct, peace, and nonviolence and promote these values among all.
• Be patriotic and respect the laws of the country in which they live.

Sai Baba, In his physical presence on Earth, provided many philanthropic services to carry out His own message and beliefs. He did everything from establishing free hospitals and schools to creating free drinking water supply projects and housing projects. At the age of 14, Sathya Sai Baba declared to his parents that he had come to this world with a mission to re-establish the principle of Righteousness, to motivate love for God and service to fellow man. Since then, he has consistently called on all mankind to LOVE ALL, SERVE ALL and has repeatedly asserted that the essence of all scriptures is HELP EVER, HURT NEVER! We should now think of how we can become his IDEAL Students and Soldiers by following his teachings of “SERVICE TO MAN IS SERVICE TO GOD”.

Almost everything known about Sathya Sai Baba's early life stems from the hagiography that grew around him, the presentation of narratives that hold special meaning to his devotees and are considered evidence of his divine nature. Sathya Sai Baba’s mission started before he took up his body and let us tell you some of his adventures before Baba’s declaration...
