Man's many desires are like the small metal coins he carries about in his pocket. The more he has the more they weight him down.

Sathya Sai Baba

Death may call any moment. Every moment, everyone is nearing death.

Sathya Sai Baba
Cultivate a sweet temper and the sweet speech which is its natural consequence.
Sathya Sai Baba

Life is best spent in alleviating pain, assuaging distress, and promoting peace and joy. The service of man is more valuable than what you call “service to God.” God has no need of your service. Pleas man, you please God.

Sathya Sai Baba
Sacrifice, so that you may be saved. You have to sacrifice, not a bleating sheep or a horse or a cow, but your animality, the bestial lust and greed, hate and malice. Sacrifice these and you earn the heaven of unflinching peace.
Sathya Sai Baba

Were it not for the mind change of Sai devotees the world would already have fallen into complete chaos. The deterioration of mind and man has been very rapid and abrupt, even precipitous during the last fifteen years. That the world is not in total destruction is due to the change of mind of Sai devotees and to Sai's grace.

Sathya Sai Baba
The Avatar appears to be human and we are misled into thinking of him in these terms but the Avatar himself warns us against this error.
Sathya Sai Baba

Learn to speak what you feel, and act what you speak.

Sathya Sai Baba
Baba's words and actions have lit the lamp of love in the hearts of devotees and they will always remember him for the good things he has done.
Sathya Sai Baba

Develop the feeling of brotherhood of man and fatherhood of God.

Sathya Sai Baba
If you strive to find your Self by using your mind, you will strive and strive in vain, because the mind cannot give you the Truth. You are that Self. All else is illusion of the mind's creation.
