In His discourse, Sathya Sai Baba said: You must remember three things: Where did we come from? Where are we at present? and What is the purpose of our coming here?
Sai Baba related the story of Michael Goldstein and his wife being in a hijacked plane. He said that will have several trials and tribulations in the journey of life, and we have to acquire the power by which we can courageously encounter them. That is the power of spirituality.
Sai Baba talked about His having an operation, but He has no pain or suffering.
There is no greater sadhana than service to fellow human beings. There is no redemption without service. You should not mind any inconvenience that you may undergo while serving others.
