Date: Every year on November 23 the Advent of Bhagawan Sri Sathya
Sai Baba is celebrated.
Legend: "This is not my Birthday; I have no birth or birthday;
I am ageless, eternal. You must celebrate your birthday, when
you are born into Knowledge, not into bondage. Adore Me, on the day
that you are I, on the day when you derive unbounded bliss therefrom,
on the day when you can be full of joy that you are born."
"I do not desire anything. I have three
P's. One is Purity. Second is Patience. Third is Perseverance. It
is these three which have secured the world's regard. No invitations
were issued to those who have gathered here. Swami's love alone attracted
them all like a magnet. Some may ask why they are not attracted to
Swami if that magnet is so powerful. The reason is that these persons
are like rusted iron, which no magnet can attract. Let them remove
the rust and dust and they will be drawn to the magnet. Their hatred
and desires, their envy and greed are the rust and dust covering them.
If you cleanse yourselves of these, wherever you are, you will be
mine and I will be yours. The hapless and the forlorn, wherever they
may be, are the concern of Sai. Promote sacred love in your hearts.
That love will not only redeem your lives but will promote the will
being of all around you.
You need not offer anything except your love.
In Prashanthi Nilayam no offerings are permitted. Only love is allowed
