1. Faith In the Lord's Words
Sri Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol 1 (1953 - 60)
Once Krishna and Arjuna were going together along the open road.
Seeing a bird in the sky, Krishna asked Arjuna, “Is that a dove?” He replied, “Yes, it is a dove.”
He asked Arjuna, “Is it an eagle?’ Arjuna replied promptly, “Yes, it is an eagle.”
“No, Arjuna, it looks like a crow to Me. Is it not a crow?” asked Krishna. Arjuna replied, “I am sorry, it is a crow beyond a doubt.”
Krishna laughed and chided him for agreeing to whatever suggestion was given.
But Arjuna said, “For me, Your Words are far more weighty than the evidence of my eyes; You can make it a crow, a dove, or an eagle, and when you say it is a crow, it must be one.”
Implicit faith is the secret of spiritual success.
