Shravanam (Listening to Glory of God):
Swami says “Listen to all such things as will draw you towards God, then think it over in silence and make it a part of your consciousness, this is what makes Shravanam effective”.
“How do we make it a part of our consciousness? By simply reflecting over His words in silence, which in turn helps our understanding go a little deeper, and by putting His teachings into practice and working towards our spiritual transformation.”
“In summary, when we listen to the glories of the Lord with child-like faith, with attentiveness, with an open mind, with sincere yearning, and we reflect on His words, we finally come to practice what has been heard from the Lord. Then, and only then, the act of listening itself becomes worship of the Lord and the process of SHRAVANAM becomes effective and a form of devotion, leading us to liberation. – Sathya Sai Baba”
