Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 14:


Once you have secured a Guru, leave everything to him, even the desire to achieve liberation. He knows you more than you yourself ever can. He will direct you as much as is good for you. Your duty is only to obey and to smother the tendency to drift away from Him.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, July 24, 1964
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 15:


Beyond all limitations of time and place, the guru is pure consciousness (chaithanya) (Is-ness); his consciousness is all pervasive. That is to say, God alone is the Sadguru.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, July 2, 1985
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 16:


Divine Love (Prema) is the spring that feeds the roots of all the virtues. When each of your acts, the words that you utter, the thoughts that shape your desires and emotions - when all these draw sustenance from the roots that go deep into the inner springs of Love, then you will be happy and fresh, you can give shelter and shade to many a weary mortal.

– Sri Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 7/Divine Discourse 28, July 1967, Guru Poornima
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 17:


Try to be near God, as near as His own kin, do not calculate the number of hours you have spent in serving Him. Do not pine that He has not compensated you. Be ever in His service, that is to say, in doing good and being good.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, July 24, 1965
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 18:


The Principle of love in you is highly sacred. But because of delusion, you are polluting it, and thereby diminishing your value. Gold in its pure form is brilliant and highly valuable, but when you add metals like silver, copper, brass, etc., to it, its shine as well as value diminishes. Likewise, man is like pure gold, but as he is associating himself with worldly desires, he has lost his value as well as effulgence. When you develop the human values of Truth (Sathya), righteousness (Dharma), Peace (Santhi), Love (Prema), and Non-Violence (ahimsa), you will attain exalted position and people will respect you wherever you go.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, May 7, 2001
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 19:


Do not pollute your mind with worldly desires. You have attained this human birth as a result of meritorious deeds done in past lives. Do not misuse it. Human life is highly valuable. Keep up its value by practising human values.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, May 7, 2001
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 20:


Lord Krishna made this divine declaration: the eternal Divine Spirit (Atma) in all beings is a part of My Being. (Mamaivamsho jivaloke Jivabhuta sanathana). Hence, do not feel that you are different from God. God resides in you. In fact, you are God.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, April 14, 2006
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 21:


Man develops love for many things in this world. In fact, there is nothing in this world which you should desire for. Desires are the cause of all the suffering of man. As the Saying goes ‘Less luggage more comfort.’ When there is luggage, you cannot escape from trouble. Here luggage refers to worldly relationships and desires. Only when you get rid of worldly bondage can you be happy.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, April 14, 2006
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 22:


Love Ever, Hurt Never. Do not do anything that is contrary to the principle of love. Love is God. Live in Love. Consider love as God. Salute whomever you come across, even if he be your enemy. Love even your enemy. Whomsoever you salute, it will reach God, for God is in all. With these sacred feelings, do not have hatred towards anyone.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, April 14, 2006
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 23:


Everyone should have faith in the Divine. Faith is essential for anyone, whether, he is a theist or an atheist. People may judge things as good or bad according to their own predilections. But for God all things are the same. In this world nothing will appear bad if one views it from the Divine point of view. Seen from the worldly point of view, there will be differences of good and bad.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, April 14, 2006
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 24:


Purity of the heart is more important than all rituals and penances. Develop a vision that will broaden your heart and enable you to help others and not hurt them. Dedicate all actions to God. Sacrifice (Thyaga) is real oneness with the Divine (Yoga). To enjoy things (Bhoga) without sharing with others is a disease (Roga). The Vedas have declared that immortality can be attained only through sacrifice and not by any other means.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, April 14, 2006
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 25:


When man realizes that there is God who is the basis of all this superstructure, who has designed and contrived all this and he surrenders his ego to Him. "Let Your will prevail," he proclaims and resigns himself fully to His plan. That moment is a supreme moment of joy and Bliss.

– Sri Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 7/Divine Discourse 28, July 1967, Guru Poornima
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 26:


Serve all and love all. Firmly believe that the Divine is in everyone and constantly act on this belief. Only by continuous practice you can develop this sacred attitude. Fill yourself with self-confidence and courage. Make your life a complete offering to the Divine, who is the real source of all that you are and all that you have.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, July 7, 1990
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 27:


The spark of Love in you has to be cherished and fed so that it may reach God. Then, every being will be God, every act will be Divine, every reaction you get from the outside world will be charged with Prema and sweetened with that nectar. You love the God in all beings and the God in all beings responds with love.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, July 18, 1970
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 28:


Live with prema (love), in prema, for prema. Then the Lord who is Divine Love personified (Premaswaruupa) will grant you all that you need in spite of your not asking for anything. He knows, He is the Mother who does not wait to hear the moan of the child to feed. His prema is so vast and deep, He anticipates every need and rushes with help you must have.

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, July 24, 1965
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 29:


Wherever you may be and whatever you do, regard yourselves as instruments of the Divine and act on that basis. You need not wait for a whole year to observe Gurupoornima. Treat every moment of your life as being intended for dedication to the Lord. This is the way to experience the Divine all the time at all places. This is true Sakshatkara (vison of the Divine).

– Sri Sathya Sai Baba, July 7, 1990
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 30:


If the match-stick is soaked in water, how can it ignite when struck? If the mind is soaked in worldly desires, how can it be ignited into spiritual endeavour? If the Divine Love (Prema) with which you are endowed is confined to the world, it will be absorbed up soon, by the sands of envy greed and malice. The Divine Love (Prema) must be directed towards God, then only can it expand, grow, deepen, fertilize all your actions, benefit all those around you.

– Sathya Sai Baba, July 1967, Guru Poornima
Daily quotes to read, contemplate and practice in the month of July.

July 31:


Those who seek the highest path and who revel in thoughts of God should strive to read only the life histories of saints and sages and books that help the contemplation of the Divine. Aimless reading of books all and sundry, whatever comes to hand, will make confusion only worse confounded. It gives no profit, it confers no peace.
