Hrut + Daya = Hrudaya-0.45-1996 December 25


God dwells in my heart. Where is God? If there are no Divine feelings than this heart is not a heart, it is just a rock, a stone.

Hrut + Daya = Hrudaya

Heart is the one which is full of compassion. Without compassion, the heart is only a stone. Therefore, we need to develop compassion. That is the principle of Love gifted by Jesus. Love...Love..Love..


Love is God. Live in Love.




All are my brothers-0.31-1999 November 18


All are my brothers. Have that feeling. Do not entertain difference that someone is your brother and someone else is your brother-in-law. These differences relate to the body alone. For the Atma, all are our brothers.

Mamaivamso Jiva Loke Jiva Bhutah Sanatanah
The living entities in this conditioned world are My eternal, fragmental parts. 

Bhagavad Gita, Chapter-15, Verse-7

The Lord said, “All are My sparks only”.




Less luggage more comfort makes travel a pleasure-0.35-1999 November 18


Youth – Men and Women, you have to travel long in your life. In such a journey, less luggage more comfort, makes travel a pleasure. Our desires are our luggage. We need to reduce our desires gradually. How long do these desires last? What is the benefit we get on account of these desires? No desires accrue to us. 




This is the way to God-1.02-1996 December 25


Today, we need to develop compassion. That is the principle of Love gifted to mankind by Jesus. Love, Love, Love... Love is God. Live in Love. Therefore,

Start the day with Love
Fill the day with Love
Spend the day with Love
End the day with Love
This is the way to God

We must always live in and with Love. Only such a person is very dear to the Lord. Yo Mad Bhaktaha – He is My true devotee (as stated in the Bhagavad Gita). The one who lives with Love and who aspires for Divine Love, he is My true friend.



Jagath means coming and going-0.59-1996 July 06


This world is called Jagath. Jagath means Jaa + Gath, Jaa + Gath i.e. to go and to come, to go and to come. Everything goes and comes. Nothing remains permanently. Nothing goes permanently. Whatever goes, comes again. Whatever comes, goes again. That is why this world is called Nityam (transient). It is also called Sadasat (neither true nor untrue). It is thus referred to as Jagath.

We are experiencing this world in varied ways. It is not possible for us to leave this world. In this Jagath itself we need to see (have the Darshan of) Jagadeeswara (Divinity). Jagath (world) is the very form of Chaitanya (Awareness). This Awareness is verily the form of Divinity.



Expansion Love is God-Contraction love is death-0.50-1998 September 25


What is the meaning of Brahma? Brahma is not the one with four heads. Brahma means the one who fills up the entire universe (vastness). Brahma expands everywhere. Wherever you see, there is Brahma. This expansion Love is God. Contraction love in the form of “this is my body” (limiting to the physical body) is death. The feeling “my body, my body” is limited to one body alone. We must develop expansion love. Love is God, live in Love. We should never have a narrow outlook like “this is my family, these are my children, these are my friends.”





Body is like water bubble-Mind is like mad monkey-0.45-1999 November 18


Love is the very life for human beings. Love is God, live in Love. However, we are losing that very Love today. Even the love that we have has become distorted today. But the Divine Love is heart to heart, Love to Love; not body to body.

Body is like a water bubble, mind is like a mad monkey; don’t follow the mind, don’t follow the body; follow the conscience.



If there is righteousness in heart-There will be beauty in character-1.25-1990 May 24


If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character,
If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home,
If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation,
If there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.

Therefore, in order to get peace, we must develop right character. Right action is referred to as Dharma. In order to have right actions, we must first have right thoughts.

First of all, we must develop peace in our homes. But even before developing peace in our homes, we must nurture peace in our hearts. If you yourself do not have peace, how can you confer peace on your people at home? And if there is no peace at home, how can you confer peace on the people in your town/city?



Haste makes Waste-1.07-1990 May 24


We must ensure that our thoughts are set on the right path. As soon as the thought emerges, we must enquire whether it is good or bad. But human beings, being in a hurry, do not give any opportunity for such an enquiry. Humans are always in haste. They want everything as soon as they desire.

That is why:

Haste makes waste
Waste makes worry
So, do not be in a hurry

Therefore, in such situations, we must go slow and offer our thoughts to the intellect. Based on the enquiry conducted by the intellect, we must take the final decision. Then alone can we enjoy peace.   



Where there is faith-there is love-1.16-1988 December 25


Where there is Faith (Confidence), there is Love,
Where there is Love, there is Peace,
Where there is Peace, there is Truth,
Where there is Truth, there is Bliss,
Where there is Bliss, there is God.


Therefore, we must develop and nurture faith in ourselves. Love manifests only through faith. Only through love, we can get peace. With peace, we will be able to enter onto the path of truth. Walking on the path of truth, we can get bliss. Finally, the bliss gets transformed into the form of God. Without faith, we will become blind. We develop faith in all sorts of silly things, but we need to have earned some merit and be deserving to develop faith in truth and in sacredness.

  1. Sairam. Some of the pictures used in the illustrations are not reverential enough to depict Bhagawan's sayings: like the one in "Less luggage more comfort..." He liked human beings dressed properly, fully covered, and set an example Himself.
