Format: Paperback

Synopsis: This volume consists of the eight talks in Swami's physical presence given by Dr. Shashank Shah, an alumnus of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning, between the years 2002 and 2004. Illustrated with photographs, anecdotes from the lives of Avatars, prophets, saints and sages, and rare experiences with Swami, these speeches cover a wide variety of topics relevant to every Sai devotee, student, and youth.

Description: Sri Sathya Sai Baba has declared on many occasions: "My students are My property." Talks by Sai students in the divine presence are an integral feature of every major festival and celebration - national and international - at Prasanthi Nilayam. To address gatherings as large as twenty thousand people can be challenging for seasoned speakers. But, Sai students effortlessly share their thoughts and innermost experiences, as if they are conversing with Swami. What is the secret behind this? It is the direct and personal mentoring that He has given His students over the last four decades. The more important aspect of these talks is the basic understanding about His life, message, and mission that Sai students exhibit. This clarity of thought is possible, only because their lives are inextricably interwoven with His. He uses these opportunities in His physical presence to enable each of His students to progress in their own spiritual journey and thereby, evolve into balanced individuals excelling in both the worlds - within and without. This volume consists of the eight talks in Swami's physical presence given by Dr. Shashank Shah, an alumnus of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning, between the years 2002 and 2004. Illustrated with photographs, anecdotes from the lives of Avatars, prophets, saints and sages, and rare experiences with Swami, these speeches cover a wide variety of topics relevant to every Sai devotee, student, and youth. Besides the speech itself, Dr. Shah shares lesser-known details of what happens behind the scenes before, after, and in-between these talks. Using these, He has seamlessly woven together His personal and spiritual journey with Sai.

The Sea Of Consciousness: The Ultimate Reality ISBN: 0

Language: English

Author: Dr. Kavita S. Bhatt

Pages: 190

Size (Print): 5.5x8.5x0.43

Series:

Theme:

Format: Paperback

Synopsis: What is enlightenment and how does it happen? Are things just happening in life according to the Divine Will, or do we have a choice and free will to do things that we desire to do? Such questions are discussed in much detail and answered for the right understanding of the reader. In addition to this, this book also explains what life is all about after self-realisation or enlightenment is achieved.

Description: This book ‘The Sea Of Sai Consciousness’ says… All those on the spiritual path may have some unanswered questions, such as what is God and does He really exist? What and why about this creation? Why so much misery and unhappiness in the world? What is ‘consciousness’ and ‘awareness’? etc. The apparent difference between the universal consciousness, which is what-we-are, and the individual consciousness, which we appear to be, is to be understood and only then, the inward journey begins. The law of karma is the main function in creation, because of which there is continuity of the manifestation. Karmas take place at the proper time and proper place and hence, the concept of ‘Time and Space’ is an important aspect of the manifestation. Whether time and space really exist, or are just notions in our mind is a mystery, which has been solved with fit illustrations. The life and living in the world, or the functioning of the manifestation is a living dream of the I Am (i.e. consciousness), which is similar to getting a personal dream. And when we wake up from the personal dream, what really happens is that we have woken up from that personal dream into a living dream. Enlightenment is waking up from this living dream. When we are focused, we experience a subtle ‘Presence’ or awareness within us. Great saints and seers guide us to hold on to this ‘Presence’, because this is the only thing that is permanent and all the rest is transitory. If we keenly observe, everything in our life happens with this ‘Presence’ in the background. Thoughts come and go, emotions come and go, molecules come and go, but only the ‘Presence’ remains. What is enlightenment and how does it happen? Are things just happening in life according to the Divine Will, or do we have a choice and free will to do things that we desire to do? Such questions are discussed in much detail and answered for the right understanding of the reader. In addition to this, this book also explains what life is all about after self-realisation or enlightenment is achieved. The final truth is: all that exists is the ‘consciousness’ and nothing other than ‘consciousness’ really exists.
