|Sathya Sai with Students in the Interview Room at Prasanthi Nilayam|
...Continued from Part 1
Swami : The other day when I asked you, “Who am I?” and “Who are you?”, nobody could answer. From dawn to dusk you say, “My pant, my pencil, etc.”, but who is this I, I, I? If you think you are the body - it is a water bubble. If you think you are the mind - it is a mad monkey. If you think you are the senses-sensual pleasures are momentary. Everything in the world is interplay of reaction, resound and reflection. Whatever the students do, it will come back to them. But Swami is like the pure mirror, reflecting whatever is in the front. You do Namaskar in front of the mirror; the image will do the same. If you show threatening gestures, it will show the same. What is the meaning of ‘Pratiphal’?
Students : Reaction, Swami.
Swami : Correct. But people do not think about Karmaphal (reaction of one's actions). Whatever you do will came back to you. Everyone comes alone into this world. You do not come even with a piece of cloth around you. While leaving (this world), you do not even leave an address and go. Husband does not tell his wife his future address, mother does not tell her son, etc. No one knows where he or she will go. It is only the good and bad alone that you do in this world that will follow you even after death. The Jeeva (individual soul) is like the reflection. Nature is the mirror that reflects the reality of God. Once you remove the reflection and the mirror, God alone will exist. What is bad?
Students : Swami, something that is not good.
Swami : What is not good? See, I always tell ‘Help Ever, Hurt Never’. Shakuni used to hurt and that too he used to hurt good people. Hurting good people is really bad. That is why he was finished in the end.
