This is the time of the year when all Sri Sathya Sai Global Council Sai Centers will undergo new selection of officers for the upcoming years of 2023 and 2024. Please join for important announcement about the selection of office bearers for our center.
Unity & Harmony – Study Circle Sunday, October 16th 2022 @ 10:00 AM
This sunday we will be offering regular Bhajans and 21 Om Sri Sai Ram Prayers as part of 1008 Sadhana followed by Unity & Harmony – Study Circle Discussion as suggested by the SSSGC.
See below the topic that will be discussed this Sunday.
Unity and Harmony
When once a person is selected in the atmosphere of peace and love, co-operation and tolerance should prevail and everyone must follow his directions and respect his guidance. It is only then that the Divine Grace will be conferred on you. SSS – November 21, 1970
Have the feeling of one-ness permeating every act of yours. Only those who do so have a place in this Organisation; the rest can best withdraw. SSS – January 6, 1975
Rules are necessary until the members realise the spiritual Unity of all. SSS – March 29, 1976
The practice of limiting disharmony and allowing love to freely expand will bring an organization to a harmonious unity. That harmony will attract public admiration and make possible great accomplishments in the large wealthy country of America. Each member of the organization would do well to do each and every action for Sai. If every action is done for Sai, then Sai will be added to every action and will bring success with that action. If every action is with Sai, then the actor is with Sai. The actor will then not be different from Sai. He will be Sai. He who becomes like brahma is brahma. Sai divided into jiva becomes jiva. Sai divided into Infinity becomes Infinity. Jiva divided into Sai becomes Infinity. In spiritual life, the first point of attack for any problem is to observe the situation in respect to oneself, and first improve that situation. If, after that, the other person continues to offend, he may be warned once, twice, or three times. If there is still no improvement, the person may be removed from organization office. Then, the person should be forgiven. This act of forgiving will bring about a change in the person, and also in the one who forgives. Suppose, for example, someone does something which brings severe pain into Swami’s heart. What is the medicine which will cure the pain – cure and totally remove the pain? The medicine is forgiveness. Forgiving is the medicine which will totally remove the pain from Swami’s heart. My Baba and I, Conversations, Dec 2 1982, p207-208

2. Why are rules necessary? When do they become unnecessary? Please elaborate.
