Na tha pamsi, Na teerthana
Puttaparthi, Sai Kulwanth Hall (Gurupoornima )
Neither by penance nor by bathing in sacred rivers Nor by study of scriptures nor by japa Can the ocean of Samsara be crossed Without serving godly men.
Na Tha Pamsi00:01:00
One cannot cross the ocean of the cycle of births and deaths by visiting the sacred places, or by performing japa or by studying the Sastras (scriptures). It is only possible to do so by indulging in seva or service.
Na tha pamsi, Na teerthana00:00:53
Neither penance nor meditation nor proficiency of the sacred texts is of any avail in crossing the ocean of ‘Samsara’. The only avenue of crossing the ‘Samsara’ is ‘Seva’.
Karmalunu Kadhu, Puthrulunu Kadhu00:03:39
It is not one's work, it is not one's children, it is not one's wealth; it is only service that is the means to get liberation. It is only service that confers immortality. No other paths can confer that. If adequate human effort is put with sincerity, God's grace will certainly add to it and actions will yield fruitful results. This is secret of creation on this earth.
Daanamu Kaani Yagna Sandhanamu Kaani00:04:00
If we examine carefully, we will find that neither gift, nor a donation, nor the performance of Yagna, nor of penance, nor acquisition of knowledge and wisdom or any other aspect of sanathana dharma, or even reacting to truth and any other aspect which comes under the description of Sanathana Dharma is equal to or even comparable to seva or service. The reputation of this country "Bharath" has been known all over on this earth from time immemorial and it is now being sharpened by the righteous path which Sai is propagating. You, to the extent to which you can, with the fineness that you are capable of, give it a further polish.
