Sri Sathya Sai Baba Quotations

  Character

The first step in the Sadhana is the cleansing of the speech. Talk sweet without anger.

The body will shine if the character is fine; service of man and worship of God will preserve its charm.

Forget the harm that anyone has done to you, and forget the good that you have done to others. If wealth is lost, nothing is lost.
If health is lost, something is lost.
If character is lost, all is lost.

The minimum qualifications for Grace is surrender of ego.

Don't waste money Don't waste time Don't waste food Don't waste energy

The less you talk, the more will become your mental power. With the increase in your mental capacity, there will be increase in your power of discrimination too.

The end of wisdom is freedom.
The end of culture is perfection.
The end of knowledge is love.
The end of education is character.

When one cultivates the inner look, one attains the conviction of the basic equality of all.

The joy of being the master of senses is far greater than being their slave.

Bend the body, mend the senses and end the mind - this is the way to Immortality

Haste makes waste; Waste makes worry; So do not be in a hurry.

Man minus immorality is Immortality.

You should completely forget the help rendered by you to others and the harm done to you by others.

If animal feelings are washed out, Divine feelings begin to overflow instead.

Watch your Words, Action, Thoughts, Character and Heart.

What you would desire others to do for you, you should do for others. You should respect others as you want to be respected by them.

Anger, ego, jealousy are the biggest diseases.
Keep yourself aloof from these three diseases.
Anger cannot be destroyed by anger and cruelty by cruelty.
Anger can be subdued only by forbearance and cruelty can be overcome only by nonviolence.
Anger is like an intoxicant; it reduces man and degrades him to the level of an animal.

Think before speaking. Think before acting. Then go ahead If you feel good about it.

Watch Your Words
Watch Your Action
Watch Your Thoughts
Watch Your Thoughts
Watch Your Character
Watch Your Heart

If there is righteousness in the heart, There will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character, There will be harmony in the home.
When there is harmony in the home, There will be order in the nation.
When there is order in the nation, There will be peace in the world.

We can be successful leaders only if we are disciplined followers, who do not issue commands to others but rather set an example of service in our actions.

You should see that no dirt settles upon the mind; that is to say, you should move about in such company that dirt is avoided. Falsehood, injustice, indiscipline, cruelty, hate -- these form the dirt; Sathya, Dharma, Shanthi, Prema -- these form the clean elements.

Do not waste a single moment, in idling or loose living.

See good
Hear good
Speak good
Do good
Be good

With good and sweet words, keeping desires under check and control (for ultimate removal), one should start on the path of sacrifice.

Doing one's duty, however small, in an unattached manner gives rise to the awakening of self awareness.

Desire destroys devotion, anger destroys wisdom, greed destroys work - hence these bad qualities must be sacrificed.

If you honor your mother, the Mother of the universe will guard you against harm.
If you honor your father, the Father of all Beings will guard you.
If you honor your parents, your children will honor you.

The secret of happiness is not doing what one likes to do but in liking what one has to do.

Bear all and do nothing; Hear all and say nothing; Give all and take nothing; Serve all and be nothing.

Make your life a rose, that speaks silently in the language of fragrance.

Greed yields only sorrow; contentment is best.

You are not one person, but three: The one you think you are; The one others think you are; The one you really are.

The mother is the pillar of the home, of society, of the nation, and so of humanity itself.

If it is good and will harm no one, go ahead. If it is not good, put it aside. If not sure, do nothing until sure.

I - Want - Peace "I" is ego. "Want" is desire. Remove ego and desire and you have peace.

Learn to speak what you feel, and act what you speak.
