“Simple, eternal truths which I want all of you to try your utmost to live”

The following instructions, if carried out wholeheartedly by you, will allow you to help my work of spiritualizing the world. They are not to be treated like long-established sermons, read, heard and forgotten. They are not to be understood in the light of philosophical slogans preached merely for the sake of preaching.

They are […]

The value of constant practice of virtue and the constant abstention from evil for an ordinary devotee

By a special dispensation of GOD, also, the very highest type of devotee whose whole being is permanently focussed on the Divine Beloved, is as completely exempt from the law of karma as the Dnyani [God-Realized being]. Unlike the Dnyani, however, such a devotee is utterly ignorant of this exemption. But the ordinary devotee, […]

“Be good. It pays! … the best way to become good is to serve others and try to make others happy.”

“God is not kind; He is the ocean of mercy. But it is all according to law. And law is not complicated; it is simple. You sow a seed, you water it, you have a plant, it grows, etc., but it is all so simple. Law gives you all this from one seed because […]

“If the Sadgurus were to show their hearts you would find me in them”

There are always 56 [God-realized souls]. Now out of these 56, 5 Sadgurus are put into the world. But in every Avataric period, these five become one in demonstrating the cycle [when the Avatar appears in form].

So the Avatar exists in the heart of these five as one. These […]

Beloved Baba’s Eternal Birthday Message

 

“To love Me for what I may give you is not loving Me at all. To sacrifice anything in My cause to gain something for yourself is like a blind man sacrificing his eyes for sight. I am the Divine Beloved worthy of being loved because I am Love. He who […]

“Learn to long for the love of God”

Awaken from your ignorance, and try at least to understand that in the uncompromisingly indivisible oneness, not only is the Avatar God, but also the ant and the sparrow, just as one and all of you are nothing but God. The only apparent difference is in the states of consciousness. The Avatar knows that […]

“In Avataric periods, God mingles with mankind as man, and with the world of ants as an ant, etc.”

It is very difficult to grasp the entire meaning of the word ‘Avatar.’ For mankind, it is easy and simple to declare that the Avatar is God, and that it means that God becomes man. But this is not all that the word ‘Avatar’ means or conveys.

It would be more appropriate to say […]

Avatar’s crucifixion

The Avatar has to incur upon himself the infinite burden of “worries” of the entire suffering world, while working in the world for the spiritual upliftment of humanity. This suffering of people, steeped in the darkness of ignorance, becomes the Avatar’s suffering. This is his crucifixion. The Avatar is crucified every moment […]

Liberation: The way to get liberated from these bindings is through love

 

Christ said, “Leave all and follow me.” What did that mean?

Don replied, “I assume it means literally to leave everything and follow Christ within yourself.”

Then Baba continued:

But the meaning behind it was not to leave all these things; not to renounce the world, it was to obey. Leave all thoughts, […]

Liberation: Every action binds us

Don Stevens read The Law of Karma a second time, and Baba asked him again to give the gist of it. Don replied, “Baba, I understand from this that it is quite true that the entire universe is governed by laws. The material world may be less understandable in terms of being governed by […]
