Monthly Study Circle Topic – 1 OCTOBER 2020

Study Circle Topic “Desires limit your happiness”

Keep the mind away from low desires that run after fleeting pleasures. Turn your thoughts away from them and direct the thoughts toward permanent bliss, which is derivable from the knowledge of the immanent divinity. Keep before the mind’s eye the faults and failures of sensory pleasures and worldly happiness. Jnana Vahini, Ch.27, p.27

Constantly contemplate on God. Then you will always be happy physically, mentally, and spiritually.  Unfortunately,  nowadays  you  are  losing  such  a  divine  quality  of  bliss  due  to  various desires. If you can keep these desires away from you, you will always be blissful. Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol.38/Ch.1: January 14, 2005

Develop Love

If you close the door of the heart on evil qualities, they cannot enter it. You should not get angry  with  anyone,  nor  criticise  or  harm  anyone.  If,  for  any  reason,  such  circumstances  arise, control yourself. When anger overtakes you, put it down immediately considering it  as  your  enemy.  It  is  said,  anger  is  your  enemy,  patience  is  your  shield  of  protection,  happiness  is  your  heaven.  Fill  your  heart  with  love  and  compassion.  If  you  have  love  in  your  heart,  you  will  see  God  everywhere.  Bereft  of  love,  you  will  see  only  devil.  When  you develop firm faith that God is in you and you are God and that your body itself is the temple of God, then there will be no scope at all for anger, jealousy, pride, etc., to trouble you. Hence, Bangaru! Develop love and compassion. Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol.39/Ch.7: May 2, 2006

Once you develop love, there will be no scope for evil qualities like anger, jealousy, etc. If your thoughts and actions are good, your future is bound to be good. Then the whole country, nay, the whole world, will prosper. Pray for the peace and prosperity of the entire world. Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol.33/Ch.7: April 5, 2000
