Canadian National Spiritual Project

Theme, will focus primarily on “The Sai Ideal” and the three sub-themes, “God Is”, “I Am I” and “Love All Serve All” supported by Swami’s program Ceiling on Desires

Uniting Swami’s programs supports devotees to experience divinity by reflecting and reducing worldly desires that prevent us from transforming ourselves with love.

What is the proper plan of study?

Swami answers this question as follows:

“This is the proper plan of study - reading, reflection, and regular application in life. Study is work. Inquiry into the value and applicability of what is studied is worship. The experience of the validity and value of practice is wisdom.”

The Sai Ideal – Ceiling on Desires

“If there are no desires, then one can truly experience Eternal and Supreme Happiness, which is what God is.”

“Not only should you curb your desires, and set aside the savings thus gained to serve the poor, all aspirants along the spiritual path should put a rein on growing desires, within an increasingly materialistic, uncaring, wasteful and obsolescence oriented society.” Sai Baba – pg 13. 9 discourses

“It is not easy for you to comprehend the true nature of God’s love. You are aware only of worldly attachments, which are subject to ups and downs. What is liable to such changes cannot be called love. True love is unchanging. It is Divine. Love is God. Live in love. Embark on this path of love.” pg 41. 9 discourses

Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
