People of wisdom...........

Enormous quantities of water are evaporated from the surface of the Earth by the Sun. This then transforms into clouds, and finally return to the Earth as rain. The wonder is that, in spite of this tremendous vaporisation, the level of the ocean does not go down even by an inch. Furthermore, even though thousands of rivers pour their waters into the seas, the level of the ocean does not increase. Similarly, people who have practised the wisdom of the scriptures are never affected by praise or blame, whatever the source and quantity. Their hearts remain pure and calm.
- Sathya Sai Vahini, Ch 22: ”Eternal Truths”.

Bhagawan's Thought for the day - 5 th Sep 2011

Teachers! You must inspire your students by your example. You should combine practice with precept, like the physical instructor who demonstrates the exercises the students should perform. Impart to your students the teachings of great and noble souls. Education should be for elevation. It should not be to obtain degrees to earn a living, but should be a preparation for a good life. You should teach students: discipline, observance of humility and respect, and instill in them the spirit of service to society and the sense of fellowship. Make your children imbibe confidence and courage. Unify them through love. Let there be no room for anger, jealousy or hatred within you. Teach the children the three P’s: Purity, Patience, and Perseverance. Armed with these three qualities, your students can protect the nation better than any army or atom bombs. When Truth and Righteousness are protected, the nation will be secure.
