The bodies of human beings are not the only chariots. The bodies of animals like dogs or tigers or elephants are also chariots. In fact, the body of every being is a chariot. For example, Lord Shiva is depicted as riding on Nandi, the bull. The bullock is Shiva's chariot. Yet, when you see a bullock, you do not think of Lord Shiva; still he will be seated there. When you see a rat, you will not be thinking of Ganesha, the elephant god, who represents the aspects of protection and wisdom in the divinity. Lord Ganesha will be there, riding on that rat. The rat is his vehicle, so it is also a chariot in which God is installed. In a similar way, lions, crows, dogs, snakes, eagles and so many other animals and birds are used as vehicles for the many different aspects of God. In truth, every living being is a chariot taking God in procession. These days you are developing the vision that sees only the chariot. You are focusing all your concentration on the external decorations. In this age, almost your entire time is spent on adorning the chariot and seeing to the comforts and pleasures of the body. As a result, you are paying attention only to the external differences and you are not spending any time trying to see the indweller.

If we can develop self-confidence and then attempt to control our sensory organs, we can spend our lives remaining near divinity and ultimately reach divinity. In our body, all the other organs are controlled by the tongue. If only we can control our palate, avoid excessive eating, excessive talking and refrain from using words that ought not to be uttered, our health will improve and we can have peace of mind.

The human body is a clock in which the seconds hand represents days, the minutes hand, months and the hours hand, years. With each passing hour, the clock tolls and warns us of the impending end. So, you must make the best use of the human body while it is healthy and strong. It is the means by which one performs the long journey of life.

Human birth is the rarest of all living beings. Human body is most sacred, precious and wonderful. It is your foremost duty to keep it healthy and fit. The body is the means by which you can do what you want. Without the human body, you cannot perform even a small task. The body is more valuable than gold, wealth and other materialistic acquisitions. You must therefore sanctify it by putting it to proper use.

Truth is the foundation on which the character of man is built. When Truth is not respected, the mansion of life collapses like a building that has a weak foundation. Man does not realize this and pursues a life of sensuous pleasures, ignoring Truth which is the Life Force that sustains his entire being.

The body is made of five elements; it is only a negative aspect. It is like a water bubble that could collapse and perish at any time. The mind is like a mad monkey. It is useless to follow the mind and the body. Follow the conscience. Today's man takes shelter in his body and mind, and loses his life.

Love emanates from truth and truth emanates from love; one does not exist without the other. Truth is an internal current and love is its external flow.

Detachment is a plant of slow growth. If you pluck the tender plant to look for the pods, you will be disappointed. So, too, long constant practice alone is rewarded by the peace that God offers. Grace is acquired by surrender.

You may give up everything but never give up God! Never forget God! Engrave this truth in your heart. That will protect you in every possible way.

Goodness, compassion and tolerance: through these three paths, one can see the divinity in oneself and in others. Softness of heart is condemned by people today as weakness, cowardice and want of intelligence. The heart has to be hardened, they say, against pity and charity. But that way lies war, destruction and downfall. Love confers lasting happiness and peace. Sharing can reduce grief and multiply joy. Man is born to share, to serve, to give and not to grab. When you have faith in God as a precious truth in the altar of your heart, you will welcome, with equal alacrity, the blows and blossoms of fortune.

Remember, God is your guardian, when you sleep; when you are helpless; even when you have forgotten or neglected or discarded Him. He has no need you offer or promise to offer. He is ever content, ever blissful, ever full and ever free. Do your duty to yourself - that is enough offering for Him

Life has been bestowed not for just eating and digesting and roaming and reclining, but for a far greater
purpose - the realization of Divinity in us, in all that exists around us and even beyond all things that strike our senses.

Reason for the Divine's Descent into Matter

In past ages, when the power of evil reached a certain stage, the Divine descended into form to suppress the evil and to foster the good. In the Kali age in which we are living, evil has reached new depths. Of all the various ages - each with its own characteristics, the Kali age is the age of the deepest descent into matter and form, away from spirit. We have passed through the lowest point of the pendulum, the dark times of this 20th century and are now beginning the upward climb. The appearance of the Avatar coincides with the darkest hour of the Kali Yuga.

Learn from childhood the recitation of the name and prayer and practice of silence. Let children contemplate the beauties and the magnificence of God's handiwork and be filled with mystery and awe. Do not count and calculate what the Puttaparthi Sai Baba gives. I do not give, in order to attract you to Me; I give only to fill you with 'Ananda'. Showering 'Ananda', is My task. I do not want you to extol Me; I shall be satisfied if you rely on Me. The mysterious indescribable super power has come within reach. It will never engage Itself in any task without fruit.
