LADY 1: Did you hear that this Young Swami is God? It seems that people from all the surrounding places are flocking to have the darshan of Bala Swami.
LADY 2: Sister, I too want to have the darshan of this Young Swami. Shall we all go together for darshan?
LADY: Come sister, we shall all go together.
GROUP: Alright. ….. What do you say? …. Come on, come!……….Come mother…..Here auntie……. I am coming!
MAN 1: Kondama Raju is Guru for all of us but for him, his Grandson is the Guru!
MAN 2: Not just Guru but God in human form, with miraculous powers.
EASWARAMMA: What is it that people are saying about our Sathyam?
VENKAMA RAJU: They believe that Sathyam is God. In many neighbouring places also, Sathyam is revered as God. But there are also some that disbelieve, while others attribute it all to magic and mantras. Easwari, what can we do about the way people think?
EASWARAMMA: Even father-in-law thinks that Sathyam is God.
VENKAMA: That is true. Once he said to me that his Guru Venkavadoota told him that in order to protect the world, Lord Narayana would Himself be born in the Ratnakara lineage. Based on that prediction, father believes that our Sathyam is Lord Sriman Narayana.
EASWARAMMA: Is it? Listening to all that you say, perhaps what Venkavadoota said has come true. In any case, whatever happens, Sathyam must always be near me.
VENKAMA RAJU: Salutations!
PERSON: Salutations, Mr. Venkama Raju!
PERSON 2: We are from Kottacheruvu.
PERSON 3: We have heard a lot about the Young Swami.
VENKAMA: Very happy.
LADY: We have come from Uravakonda to see Young Swami.
EASWARAMMA: Is that so?
LADY 2: Is she Easwaramma?…. Salutations mother!
LADY 3: Mother, we consider it a great fortune to have your darshan!
EASWARAMMA: Come, Subbamma!
SATHYA: In all of you, there is a third eye that you cannot see. That is the Eye of Wisdom! Open that eye and you will see that God is not just here or there but everywhere! Develop Love in your hearts. Always adhere to Truth [Sathya] and Righteousness [Dharma]. Those who have attained the Knowledge of the Atma, will not specially go in search of God because they can see God wherever they are. May all good be unto you!
SUBBAMMA: Easwaramma, your house is not big enough to accommodate the devotees who throng to see Sathyam. Many devotees are standing outside, unable to get in. My house is more spacious; it can not only accommodate more devotees but is also very convenient for having bhajans and various other ceremonies. What do you think?
EASWARAMMA: As you say, Subbamma.
SUBBAMMA: Very good; shall I now take leave of you?
But after a few days, even Subbamma’s spacious house was not enough to accommodate the ever increasing number of Sathyam’s followers.
SUBBAMMA: Saying that your house is not spacious enough, we shifted the venue of the Thursday bhajans to my place. Now, even this house is not big enough! Day by day, the crowd of devotees is increasing!
EASWARAMMA: True Subbamma. When I see devotees worshipping Sathyam, I feel it is all due to the merit acquired by Him in earlier births. At the same time, I am scared by the jealousy of others. I don’t want any harm to come to Him. Personally, I think it would be safer for Him to remain just my son, rather than the One who is Universally adored!
SUBBAMMA: Easwaramma, you need not have such fears. Sathyam is no ordinary boy as you seem to imagine. He is the gift of Lord Sathya Narayana, and cannot be harmed by any evil force whatsoever. I will make available some land I have near the Chitravathi River. Devotees can stay there and sing bhajans, while I take care of all the arrangements. Sathyam also can reside there. That will make it possible for Him to spend all His time with devotees.
EASWARAMMA: Subbamma, why are you so generous?
SUBBAMMA: Easwaramma, don’t say that! Rather, it is my good fortune to know at least now that Sathyam who was born right before my eyes is verily God Himself! When you serve God, it is not called generosity! Easwaramma, it is my supreme good fortune to perform service to Sathyam!
EASWARAMMA: Subbamma, I am lost! I don’t understand anything. All I want is that my child should not be separated from me!
SUBBAMMA: Don’t we all feel pain? As the mother of One born for a special Mission and who is also the Master of the Aeon, you must be prepared to make some sacrifices. Worldly bonds are for the ordinary but not for One who has come with a Mission. Your Son is drawing the whole world to Him. Just as the waves of the entire ocean come to the shores, devotees from all over the world will throng to Sathyam. We must all be happy about it and not feel disturbed. Easwaramma, don’t be afraid.
Evil thoughts bring misery,
While good thoughts bring joy.
But one who is free from thoughts
Enjoys total peace!
This is the Truth that Sai wishes to convey!
A cloth is a combination of threads but if the threads are all removed, there is no cloth. In the same manner, if all thoughts are removed, there will be no mind! Human values latent in man will blossom only when there is a ceiling on desires. A person lacking in human values is not fit to be called a human being.
If Sathya is abandoned,
It is equal to losing one’s head;
If Dharma is given up,
It is equal to losing one’s shoulders;
And lack of Shanti,
Is equal to having no stomach!
Prema is the basis for all the three!
Love in thought is Sathya, and love in action is Dharma. If there is Love in us, there will also be peace.
OM SHANTI, SHANTI, SHANTI HI!
