Rama’s divinity blossomed under Kausalya’s loving care,Lava and Kusa could become powerful and famousDue to their noble and virtuous mother Sita,The love and care of Jijabai made Shivaji a great warrior.Fostered with the love of his mother Putlibai, Gandhi became a Mahatma.For all the beings in the world there is nobody greater than mother who gives them birthAnd brings them up with love and care.(Telugu Poem)
Embodiments of Love!
THE Goal of man’s life is neither happiness nor sorrow. Man can find fulfilment in life only if he can trace the origin of happiness and sorrow. In fact, man attains wisdom from sorrow and not out of happiness. The sages and seers of yore had to face great hardships and troubles before they could set great ideals to the rest of the world. That is why their teachings have left an indelible impression on the hearts of the Bharatiyas. Both the individual and the society can achieve progress and prosperity only after undergoing many trials and tribul...
No one brings any wealth with him from his mother's womb. He carries nothing with him when he leaves the world. Even a millionaire can eat only ordinary food and cannot subsist on a diet of gold. One may wax arrogant over one's accumulated wealth, but nothing of it will accompany him, And in the end the wealth may fall into the hands of thieves or go to the State. Realise that the only thing that is permanent is the spirit. What else can I convey to you?
From ancient times, it has been the practice in Bharat (India) to revere the mother as God. From the outset, the Vedas have declared, “Revere the mother as God, father as God, and preceptor as God. If they are gods, for what purpose are they gods? In the ordinary course of daily existence, they are gods for worldly purposes. For the human body, the mother, father, and preceptor are to be deemed as divine. But, for the pursuit of life, the Divine is the only God, There is another Sanskrit saying that hails God as mother, fa...
Bereft of truth, righteousness, love and peace, the value of all your education is zero, Bereft of truth, righteousness, love and peace, the result of all your good deeds is zero, Bereft of truth, righteousness, love and peace, the utility of holding positions of authority is zero, Bereft of truth, righteousness, love and peace, the sanctity of all your acts of charity is zero, These four qualities are the four pillars that support the mansion of Sanathana Dharma. (Telugu Poem)
Embodiments of Love!
The mansion of human life rests on the four pillars of truth, righteousness, love, and peace. The safety and security of life depend on these four values. Since ancient times, the culture of Bharat (India) has been able to sustain itself as it is built on the bedrock of these values. Our ancestors led their lives strictly adhering to these eternal values. Bereft of these values, the mansion of life will collapse in a moment. Humanity continues to exist till this day ...
Inauguration of Shri Sathya Sai Arts and Science College for Women
22 July 1968
THIS is a day full of significance, not only for Ananthapur or this District or this State, but, for all other States also. On the occasion of the School Day of the High School for Girls in this town, as early as 1964, I had announced that what this town needed most was a College exclusively for Women. That sankalpa (resolve) has today realised itself. Very soon, this will become a fullfledged completely equipped educational institution, with a status peculiar to itself. The prompting behind this college is not the search for reputation, or the desire to propagate a cult, or the hope of monetary profit. I know that fame is a fickle figment, that reputation is something that rots, that profit is defiled when it is measured in terms of cash.
have allowed this college to rise, because it will instill in the minds of the students the ancient ideals of Sathya, Dharma, Shanthi and Prema, ideals that are delineated in the Vedas, described in Shasthras, illustrated in the epics, practise...
Rama’s divinity blossomed under Kausalya's loving care;Lava and Kusa could become powerful and famousDue to their noble and virtuous mother Sita;The love and care of Jijabai made Shivaji a great warrior;Fostered with the love ofhis mother Putlibai, Gandhi became a Mahatma.Is there anyone in this world who canTake care of you the way your mother does?Amma (mother) is the first word that man picks up in life.The first letter of the word 'Amma' also happens to beThe first letter of the alphabet.Embodiments of Love![Telugu Poem]
In this world, there are many types of relationships, but none equals the relationship that exists between the mother and the child. It is because of this intimate relationship with the mother that one’s own country is called motherland. Similarly,
one’s own language is called mother tongue, not father tongue. Among the parents, the first place is given to the mother; next comes the father. Not only in day-to-day life but also in the field of spiritual...
