„I have come to light the lamp of Love in your hearts, to see that it shines day by day with added luster. 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. “
4 July 1968, Baba
Sri Sathya Sai Baba is one of the most revered spiritual masters alive in the world today. He was born on November 23rd 1926 in the village of Puttaparthi in South India. He has established His Ashram there which is known as "Prasanthi Nilayam" or "The abode of Supreme Peace." Millions of spiritual seekers visit the ashram every year to receive His blessings. He is quietly transforming the world by re-establishing the eternal values of truth, right action, peace, love and non-violence in everyday lining. Sai Baba has millions of followers of all faiths and all races in countries all over the world who congregate every week to sing the glories of God and spread his message of love to unite all mankind. As a child, Sai Baba demonstrated the qualities of compassion, wisdom and the desire to serve others. He also demonstrated great respect for elders. In the daily course of his activities he displayed remarkable miraculous powers which he used to help his fellow students and others in the community who come seeking his assistance. He also demonstrated a talent in drama, music and dance. He could quote from and discuss various spiritual texts without ever having studied them, to the surprise of the learned people of the village. At the Early age of fourteen, he left his brothers home where he lived and declared that he work to do and that his devotees were calling him. The teachings of Sri Sathya Sai Baba are universal and simple. They are based on five fundamental human values; truth, right conduct,
peace, love and non-violence. These are values taught by all the great religions of the world today. By faithfully practicing these values in daily life, individuals can rise to the highest spiritual potential.
Sai Baba says that all religions are facets of the same truth. Through love and understanding he encourages us to forge unity of all peoples regardless of race, religion, colour or gender. He emphasizes that all human beings are inherently divine. Like lost children, they have forgotten the art of living in harmony with their true nature. They have a birth right to regain this heritage, and he’s here to remind them of their roots. He’s teaching by example that, through practice of love, compassion, generosity, forgiveness and sacrifice, all mankind can join together and usher in a new era of peace and harmony in the world.
He has come to reinforce humanity’s faith in their respective religions, faith in themselves, and faith in the one all pervading supreme God.
"Let the different faiths exist, let them flourish, let the glory of God be sung in all languages and in a variety of tunes. Respect the difference between the faiths and recognize them, so long as they do not extinguish the flame of unity. " Sai Baba.
