How to recognise the Divine Being How to benefit from the Incarnation

For aspirants whose intuitive vision is open, this is a time of great opportunity. The poorna avatar of the Kali Yuga is now incarnate as Sri Sathya Sai Baba. He has come possessed of the sixteen attributes and the physical signs foretold in past ages. He manifests the energy and powers of a superhuman being, yet some observes are still unsure of his stature. On occasion, he pretends not to know the visitor or where the visitor comes from, but that is his play. The devotee must overcome the illusion which blinds him to the magnificent reality.

Since I move about with you, eat like you, and talk with you, you are deluded into the belief that this is but an instance of common humanity. Be warned against this mistake, I am also deluding you by my singing with you, talking with you, and engaging myself in activities with you. But any moment my divinity may be revealed to you; you have to be ready, prepared for that moment. Since divinity is enveloped by humanness, you must endeavor to overcome the maya (delusion) that hides it from your eyes.

Sathya Sai Speaks 6

In this age, the avatar has come to reestablish righteousness and the sacred teachings. There is now no single great enemy of humanity; there is both good and evil in all. And so he comes to educate and uplift all humanity.

In past ages, avatars rid the world of evil by destroying the few fanatics and ogres who wrought it. But now fanaticism and felony reign in every heart …Therefore everyone needs correction; everyone has to be educated and guided in the right path.

Sathya Sai Speaks 4

Even now the mission moves forward. The message is clear for all to see. Aspirants need only examine the teachings to benefit from the lesson. Sathya Sai Baba is the guide and example for the Kali Age. It is up to each of us to walk the path. Only thus will humanity be saved from the precipice of disaster.

The way in which the avatar has to be used for one’s liberation and uplift is watch his every step, observe his actions and activities, and follow the guiding principle of which his life is an elaboration. Mark his love, his compassion, and his wisdom; try to bring them into your own life.

Sathya Sai Speaks 6

By observing the Lord and capturing his grace, we can win the goal of liberation. The Lord himself will guide us. His task is the deliverance of those who are ready for liberation from the cycle of birth and death. If this opportunity is lost, when will another chance come?

The airplane has to land at certain places in order to take in those who have won the right to fly by the tickets they have purchased. So, too, the Lord has to come down so that those who have won the right to be liberated may be saved; incidentally, others too will know the Lord, of his grace, of ways of winning it, of the joy of liberation.

Sathya Sai Speaks 4

The avatar has come to light the lamp of love. His words illumine the heart and soul. But first one small task is required: we must open the door so that the light and the joy may enter.

The incarnation comes to warn, to guide, and to awaken, to lay down the path and shed the light of love on it. But man has to listen, learn, and obey with hope and faith
