Bhakthi Reva Paramartha Dayini
Puttaparthi, Sai Kulwanth Hall (1996 Special Discourses )
Devotion is the basis to attain the knowledge of the Supreme Being. Devotion is the panacea to get rid of the disease of birth and death. It is devotion that leads man to the knowledge of eternal truth and confers on him liberation which is the ultimate goal of life.
Neeru daati teppa nippulo padaveyu00:00:14
“Neeru daati teppa nippulo padaveyu! Neti Bhakthi yentha bootakamulu?!!” After crossing the river, the boat is put in fire, Oh! How pretentious is today’s devotion!!I
Addamanduna Prathi Bimba Mantanatula00:01:49
Addamanduna pratibimbamantanatula, Taamarakulu neetiche tadupanatula, Paapamulu antavu maanavuni Bhakti valana!! Just as a reflection does not get stuck to the mirror, Just as water does not wet the lotus leaves, So also, sins do not attach to a man with devotion!!
Though they have eye sight they are blind to look at the auspicious form of yours!! Though they have ears they are deaf to the melodious music!!
Indari bandhu mitrula: Arjuna to Krishna00:00:35
How to bear the pain of killing so many friends, teachers and relatives? My head is reeling, let’s go home without delay.
Kuracha Buddhula: Poem by Arjuna to Krishna00:00:16
“Krishna, the mean minded fellows that the Kauravas are, will they want peace? Let’s be ready to fight. Why waste time?"

Embodiments of Love! Whatever it is that one has caught onto, stay put till it is yours, Whatever it is that one has asked for, stay put till it is given, Whatever it is that one has thought for, stay put till it is realised, Notwithstanding one’s pleas, either the Lord must give in! Or notwithstanding the delay, one must persevere! What is a devotee’s devotion if he turns back without achieving!! Workers can sanctify one’s life by dedicating oneself to the service of others and by fostering devotion, thus helping the organization grow.
Matamulanni koodi manchine bodhinche00:00:31
All religions teach only the good, Know this and conduct with wisdom, If minds are pure, how can any religion be bad? Heed the words O sons of Bharath!!
Pattinadedhiyo Pattane Pattithivi00:01:33
You have determined for something hold on until it is fulfilled. You have asked for what you wish so until it is given do not give up. You have requested for something so do not leave until it is granted. He has to bless you out of helplessness or you must ask and receive it but to return is not the quality of a devotee.
Pattina pattedho pattane pattitivi00:01:11
Whatever it is that you have determined to achieve, stay put till your objective is achieved, Whatever it is that you have desired, stay put till your desire is fulfilled, Whatever it is that you have asked for, stay put till you get it, Whatever it is that you have thought about, swerve not till the thought is realised, Notwithstanding your pertinence either God must yield to your request or unable to stand up to your determination you should fall down!! Returning midway is not the characteristic of a true devotee!!
Pankajakshuni Pooja Palumarlu00:03:39
Without performing the pooja of Pankajaksha several times again and again but to think of others and blame others is this right for you? Without praising the lord and singing his glory is it right for you to think of the glory of others? Without praising the greatness of Sesha sayee to praise others in this world is this right for you to do? Without meditating on Damodara's songs and his thoughts, to search for the faults in others in this world is this right for you? Without thinking in your mind of Ramanatha, the lord, how can you purify the mind? It is by such thoughts only that you can purify your mind. What other truth can I convey to you good people who have assembled here.
