thedanceofthesoulGaneshaya Namah Saraswatyai Namah Sri Gurubhyo Namah Hari Aum…

Aham somamahanasam bibharmyaham tvastaram uta pusanam bhagam
Aham dadhami dravinam havismate supravye e yajamanaya sunvate
I sustain Soma, the moon which dispels darkness, the Adityas…Tvasta, Pusha, Bhaga…the life infusing air…and I endow with wealth the worshipper…the one who offers oblation…I enhance the prosperity of a person who leads his life based on the essence of wisdom…revering the sages.

Aham rastri sangamani vasunam cikitusi prathama yajniyanam
Tam ma deva vyadadhuh purutra bhuristha tram bhurya vesayantim

I am the ruling Queen, the foremost power that bestows treasures, first of those who are worthy of worship…replete with wisdom and all aspects of knowledge. The wise realise Me and see Me in the Universe in all the diverse Forms. That Me by their sadhana they have installed in their hearts…in many places, with many homes to enter and abide in.
– Devi Sukta- Song of the Goddess
(Vak Sukta…Vak Ambhrini and Her Song of the Soul)

Oh! Beloved Mother Sai – You, are our wealth, our life infusing breath…it is You, Who sustains us…You, indeed are our essence and it is You Whom we adore and revere. You are the Source of all knowledge and wisdom…and we are aware of You and experience You in all that is around us…it is You, Whom we abide by and have installed forever in our heart.

Come, show us a way to purify our mind…the mind is the root…for a wondrous tree to flower and fruit…a root that needs nurturing and care…for the blossoming of fresh pure and fragrant thoughts…a sterling attribute…that none can dispute.
So too, the mind can be a route…oh, so fine…that leads straight to a heritage divine…that our words and deeds by and by may express and comply…complete allegiance to Thee, Oh, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai…
Oh! Beloved Lord, come…grant us devotion so true…that can touch Your Heart. An iota of Thy compassion can heal the environment; come, instill faith and fortitude…patience and gratitude…a righteous attitude…heal, repair and correct the mindset and herald in a much required transformation. Cause the effect…and effect the cause…help us let go, balance and blend the ‘was’ with the now…the ‘is’…assist us to adhere the unseen clause and cosmic laws…guide and steer our life, Beloved One towards a harmonious divine cause.
An alteration sans any altercation.

donotbeunderthefalseimpression

Do not be under the false impression that you can perform an evil deed and be done with it; remember that you will have to face the consequences for the rest of your life. – Baba
There is so much reflected in one’s attitude. Some inherited traits, some impressions from prior lifetimes…some influenced and adapted as the journey from infancy to adulthood commences and continues. Some qualities are virtuous, some shabby, some noble and noteworthy…some incorrect, erring and unworthy. These overlapping coatings control the reaction and response of each individual as he/she sails upon the ocean of life. However, regular scrutiny, mental housekeeping, self study, examination, introspection and inspection can make these layers fall away as do onion peels…heightening a near exemplary transformation.
There is something we all owe our soul – a stillness…a calm demeanour…a ‘sthita prajna’ state that can be wrought only through ethics and ethical behavior…exacting compliance with the Beloved Master’s simple, yet profound maxims…faith and belief in the Will and the Glory of God…the Glorious Will of God…that consistently exhorts and elevates us all to –
Love All, Serve All; Help Ever, Hurt Never; Samastha Lokaah Sukhino Bhavantu…Samastha Jeeva Sukhino Bhavantu…
The soul has danced with life…donning many a form…assuming many a role…spanning innumerable epochs in the ballroom of time…without achieving deserving fulfillment.
Hasn’t Prapti been somewhat elusive…?
The soul’s betrothal to the material world did not always augment a serene affiliation.
However, now in this lifetime, having savored moments in the Divine Presence, how can it not seek a higher way of living and being…?
Any and every kind of restlessness, however subtle, one will realise gradually…eventually is an undetected, unrecognized, imperceptible…deep pursuit of and for the Supreme Source. Just as a stream rushes towards a river…and a river gushes forth towards the ocean…so too, the soul can never be content to meander off-course and remain for any length of time away from its Source.
Restlessness is only the rise and fall of a wave on the ocean that you are. Nothing matters, so long as the depths are secure. Success is not important: failure does not matter. The river of eternity is flowing ever into the ocean of the Supreme Will. – Baba

crisscrosslines

I look at the palm of my hand,
At the many lines etched on it,
Trying to understand the present…
…and decipher the future,
Written in codes…by You…

The criss-cross confusion,
Sometimes freedom, sometimes binding,
Sometimes an intrusion,

Each line with a jagged end or two,
As though You’re saying,
“I leave the decision up to you…”

I look back at my life,
Wondering – ‘Did I choose right?’
If there was happiness and smiles,
There were also tears and sorrow’s might…

But each path, every choice, every turn,
Has brought me to ‘Today’,
This very moment of me thinking of You,
With nothing else in between,
No air, no space, no other view,
And I say to myself, ‘How lucky I am,
That my thoughts know You,
That my eyes see You,
That my hands remember…
…the ethereal feel,
Of Your beautiful Lotus Feet,

That my lips can chant Your name, 
Over and over again,
That my ears echo,
With Your sweet, sweet voice of love,

That my heart races,
When it knows You’re around,

And that, my soul has loved You,
Been protected by You,

Every time it’s lost, it’s been found…’

So I look at my palm,
At the criss-cross confusion,
And I smile as I realise,
The lines of fate are but an illusion,

For each line is You,
Each end is You,

What more can I want,
What more can I chase,

What more can I be destined for…but You?

No matter where I end up –
It’s a new beginning with You,

No matter where I fall –
It’s a cushioned spot,

No matter what wall I hit –
You break it down,

No matter what fear and failure tell me,
You’re always my surround sound…

Yes, I falter at times,
Yes, I look hesitatingly ahead…
…when it’s a steep climb,

Yes, I badger You with questions countless,
And yes,
I sometimes doubt Your presence…
…when in a mess…

Yet, each time,
You accept me with arms wide open,

Each time,
You make me hear the silence in a din,

Each time,
You show me the way…when I feel lost,

And each time,
You fulfil my heart’s desire at any cost,

You pamper me and lavish me,
With Your shining love,

And it makes me cry with joy as I look above,
Searching the skies for a glimpse of You,
Knowing fully well,
You’re actually standing right beside me,
Looking up as I do,

And smiling at the stubborn whim of this child,
To but see You without…as clearly as…
…I see You within…

I look at my palm again,
The criss-cross lines no longer a confusion,
They form one shape, one face, one name,
And I hang my head in shame,
For how could I ever fear, worry and cry,
How could I ever want anything else and why,
When I’ve had You all along,
Each line Your Form,
Goading me on,
To You…

To only You…
…to Whom I belong…
