For mortals in physical frame, they do celebrate ‘the entry’ into physical plane as a mark of great joy, celebration. Birthdays come and go. But, what does ‘birthday’ signify for the One, Who is Immortal? …the One whose Divine Declaration:
Na Hum Manusho|
Nacha Deva Yaksha Ha||
Na Brahmana Kshatriya Vaisya Sudrah|
Na Brahmachari, Na Gruhi Vanaprastha||
Sathyam Sivam Sundaram||
…I am the Teacher of Truth, Truth-Goodness and Beauty –One who is beyond the perception of high-flying humans and their much egotistic intelligence?
Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba has been with us…in His unique Avataric Mission…tending human souls…transforming human minds…in His Mission…”Operation Human Souls”, in re-establishing human values for the world at large, the task this Eternal Being has taken upon Himself…in consonance with Bhagawan Sri Krishna’s Divine Declaration over 5000 years ago at the Kurukshetra battlefield:
“Parithranaya Sadhunam, Vinashaya Cha dushkrutam|
Dharma Sansthapanaarthaya, Sambhavami Yuge Yuge||”
For the protection of the virtuous, for the destruction of the wicked and for the re-establishment of righteousness on firm footing, I incarnate from age to age.
Ever since He staged the Divine Drama of throwing away His books, on that momentous day of 20th October 1940,to openly declare that He belongs to His devotees, He has been in action…selflessly, sending the strong signal to the human hearts…to follow suit.
His Life has been an open book, a book in which the essence of Divinity, The Truth behind all Truths is inscribed in golden letters. His famous adage, “My Life is My Message” is undoubtedly the only one of its kind and it is obvious that Bhagawan expects His millions to follow His teachings to make our lives His message.
What do we have to offer Him, who dwells in our hearts as an eternal souvenir proclaiming our divine origin? Perhaps, man can offer nothing!
We can keep Him in the deep recess of our hearts as our most treasured souvenir, by following Him and by adhering to His Teachings.For man, HE has been the greatest ‘gift’ from Eternal Heaven; His darshan has been the greatest of the boons conferred on humanity.
What a glorious period of 81 years of human existence for us living here on this earth! The loving glory of the Avatar flowed like a murmuring pellucid stream bestowing its bounty and cool on millions and millions of inhabitants on its banks in hills and dales, on curves and plains and on sands and rocks, with ease and grace, showering benediction on all, east or west, black, yellow, brown or white – embracing all in its clasp.
Eighty one long years, appears to be so short a time to enjoy the nectarous Divine Presence in physical frame. Infathomable number of people have been corrected and straightened, advised and admonished, sheltered and rehabilitated, clothed, fed and educated, nursed and cured, guarded, guided and transformed every day, nay, every hour, all over the globe – no rest, no sleep. O Divine Father! How greatly indebted are we to you! Our heads bow low in gratitude at Thy Divine Lotus Feet!
