All the Photos of Bhagavân Srî Sathya Sai Baba
Part II - Cities Aflame
"He teaches us that life is endless, not punctuated by nights, days, months and years -
for all are one, in the eternal stream."
Every year, since 1940 when He announced that He was Sai Baba 'come again', the emergence of one Linga (or many) from His Body through His mouth has taken place, during the Lingodbhava muhurtha (the auspicious moment for the exterior manifestation of the symbol of the all-pervasive Divine Principle).
Baba invariably holds them aloft for all to see and revere; they are kept for public view the whole night and in the morning, Baba takes them in His Palm and passes along the serried ranks of bhakthas, who are stunned by the size which could not, without a miracle, pass through the tiny passage of His throat.
Various Lingas Baba created
Bhagavân and Dr. V.K. Gokak
That gathers around His knee,
And drinks the golden honey of His love.
He's the eternal Child playing in the garden.
Winning back the adults of an erring world,
Through sheer simplicity and innocence of heart.
He is the healer of a world in pain;
The blue-throated God,
That drinks the poison of the world's suffering,
To make it happy and whole.
The Gift of Nectar (Kasturi is holding the sacred vessel)
He gave each of them a few drops of Amrit (immortality), Nectar, with the exhortation that the tongue which has tested Amrit should no longer relish Anrit (false-hood).
Bhagavan: Prasanthi Vidwanmahasabha, at Trichinapally
"You claim to have won Swarajya (Self-mastery or independence over oneself), because the men who ruled this land for centuries have gone home. But, the inner masters who rule tyrannically over you, have yet to be forced to quit. Until then, you have no Swarajya. When once that is done, no enemy can overpower you. That is the moment of your independence. Now what you have won is only the rind, not the kernel"
...Truth, Goodness, Beauty ...
...hundreds gathered there to taste the nectar of His talk and imprint His beauteous form on their hearts.
