Conclusion Of Great Enquiring Minds
Pranava Is The Origin Of All Knowledge
It is in this spirit of profound enquiry that our sages and seers performed thapas (penance). By their penance and austerities, they discovered that the Pranava is the origin of all knowledge. If the Pranava (Om) did not exist, there would be no sound and no speech. Similarly the numeral “One” is the basis for all numbers. All numbers are obtained by adding more and more ones to the primary number One. Thus it was realised that this “One-ness” is the essential quality of the Divine and the diversity that is seen in the world is only a manifestation of the Divinity. The Divine was regarded as the primary seed of the diversified Universe. The seed requires husk for it to grow. The husk is the cover and inside is the seed. Similarly, for the seed, which is God, the husk is the Universe. Without the seed, the husk cannot exist. It is in recognition of this fact that the Maharishis (great sages) declared;
One Must Accept The Authority Of The Vedas
We must look upon this multi-faceted Universe, with its myriad beings as the Cosmic expression of the One Divine Entity. The Divine principle (Dhaivathwa) is immanent in the smallest body and in the whole of creation.
Only Jnanis (liberated persons), who have realised the Divine, can demonstrate the nature of the infinite Divinity, and not others. Let me give a small example. One individual asks another, “Who is your father?” You had no eyes to see your father before birth. Nor did you have the intelligence to find out who your father was?” The second man replies, “The proof for my statement is derived from my mother, who told me who my father was.” This shows that on a matter so vital as to who his father was, he accepts the statement of his mother and believes it all his life. In the same manner you must accept the authority of the Vedas (sacred scriptures of the Hindus) regarding your Divine Father.
One Cannot Discover God Without Effort
Build A Genuine Sense Of Brotherhood
Today it is the duty of all those who are connected with the Sathya Sai Organisations to promote spiritual discipline and dedicate their lives to social service for leading a purposeful life. To promote the awareness of Divinity in human beings and build a genuine sense of brotherhood among people, should be their primary aim.
