Master the Mind
Mind is the cause of bondage and liberation, and if one can master this mind, one can become not just a mastermind but the master Himself, says Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai. In this series of talks, ‘Master the Mind’, primarily given to the Ashram residents of Sathya Sai Grama, Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai guides us step by step, to take up a 30 day sadhana to understand, analyse, master and finally merge the mind into the divine self.

You said, but I did!     

When Swami visited the Joy village at Enugu, Nigeria, the children of the Ashram presented soulful songs to the joy of all. Thereafter, Swami asked Mr Tigrett and others to speak and they congratulated the children for their wonderful rendition generously. That made all the children very happy. However, soon after that when it was Swami’s turn to speak, remembering that the children wanted to come to India, He simply invited them to India to perform at the Ashram in Muddenahalli. Needless to say, they all burst into a thunderous applause.

Later in His room, while speaking to the guests and devotees Swami remarked, “Look how happy the children are. You said things and made them happy, whereas I did things and made them happier! While you praised their performance, I rewarded them by inviting them to India. You said, but I did that which would make them happy.”

A small statement of Swami, but a significant one. In this world where most look at the plight of others and at best speak a few consoling words of relief, Swami does things to relieve them of their sufferings. His compassion flows through His actions and the results are everlasting. Swami used to often remark, “Man speaks a lot but does little, where as God speaks little but does a lot.” Ours is not merely God of words, but God of deeds!
