Easter And The Dharmic Life

Easter And The Dharmic Life
One day, a little over half a century ago, I was sitting in a coffee house in the wonderful city of Old Jerusalem. The table where I sat looked through the open front onto a cobbled street. This was the street I had come to see and to walk along. Its [...]

What Is Truth?

What Is Truth?
When at his trial before Pontius Pilate, Jesus stated that he had come to earth to teach the truth, Pilate replied, “What is truth?” and walked away. Apparently he did not think that this tall gentle Jew, whom the temple priest had sent to be tried for his life as a trouble maker [...]

The Mystery Of Vibhuti

The Mystery Of Vibhuti
“Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.” With these words of the funeral service, the human body is committed to its final formless form. In some denominations of the Christian church, ash is blessed by the priesthood, becomes known as Holy Ash and is used as a symbol of penitence, reminding man that [...]

Signs, Strange And Significant

Signs, Strange And Significant
In the Blue Mountains just west of Sydney, Australia, I have a number of friends, most of them followers of Sathya Sai Baba. I would not have called Peter a Sai devotee at the time of this episode, but he was certainly interested in Sai Baba and perhaps it was to encourage [...]

Two Sai Stars

Two Sai Stars
There is a divinity that shapes our ends, rough hew them as we will -
Shakespeare
I agree with the Bard on this and moreover feel that there is a time when the shaping divine force strikes the note that starts something of importance.
I had met Dr Ron Farmer and his wife Swanny some ten [...]

The Yoga Of Love

The Yoga Of Love
Bhakti yoga, it is said, is the most essential of all the yogas.
I was first introduced to the philosophy of bhakti yoga by the late Dr I K Taimni at the “School of the Wisdom” at Adyar in India. Dr Taimni, himself a scientist, occultist and theosophist, constantly wore a happy, smiling [...]

The Sai Cure For Stage Fright

The Sai Cure For Stage Fright
One bright sunny morning in the year 1966, as I sat at my desk in Leadbeater Chambers in the Theosophical Society’s Headquarters estate, two Indian gentlemen appeared in my doorway. As I knew and respected them both as followers of Sathya Sai Baba, I called to them to come in [...]

The Young Avatar

The Young Avatar
It is interesting and at first sight inexplicable that footsteps of an Avatar should be dogged from the earliest years with threats to his life. Sathya Sai Baba has stated that it is impossible to remove him from Earth until his mission is completed. It is of course a comforting thought to his [...]
