Swamiji's Thanksgiving Song, California, November 22nd 2012
Swamiji has said that on this day we have to thank and express gratitude to the Supreme Mother Adi Parashakti who has created the entire creation and the nature by Her divine will.
Swamiji has said that we have to thank the Mother Universe & Mother Earth as it is the basis for all humanity. We should love, serve, worship and protect the Mother Earth and express our gratitude. We have to keep the Earth pure and should not disturb balance among the five elements so that we can keep the earth safe and protect it and ourselves from natural calamities.
We have to have gratitude for the Mother who has kept us in her womb for nine months and given birth to us and after that taken care of us when we did not know anything. The mother is the first Guru for every individual and it is our duty to satisfy and keep the mother happy. The father also has to be thanked for all the hard work he does to bring us up and provides education and works to give us all the comforts in life. We have to also thank the Guru who guides us at every stage in life and takes care and gives us love of million mothers and also protects us. We have to thank God for giving us everything.
So the thanks giving day is the day to thank Mother, Father, Guru & God. We have to help each other and thank each other, and unite and make this earth an abode of love and peace, this is the only way we can thank the Supreme Mother Adi Parashakti.

Today is the Birthday of Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Sathya Sai is incarnation of divine love. His educational system, medical system and service system is the universal message to the whole human race. Now some of the followers of Sathya Sai are thinking that he passed away. No, he disappeared and he is watching each and every person who told him that he is a firm devotee of Sathya Sai, and he is testing them to see if they are following his teachings, his message. What is that? It is to make the Earth a Prasanthi Nilayam. Why did he say that? He said that because he wants to live in Prasanthi (peace). There is no prasanthi in the minds of people, in the home, in the city, in the state, in the country or the world. So make your minds pure, make your minds abode of peace. Fill your heart with divine love, and fill your mind with peace and spread love and peace wherever you go. This is the message of Datta, and this is the message of Sai.
Are we ready to do this? He is asking for two flowers. He doesn’t want flowers from the market and 10 women sitting and talking all kinds of things and making a garland out of those flowers to put around his neck or on his portrait. He wants only two flowers. You don’t have to go t the market or your garden to get the flowers. The two flowers are in your body itself. They are the hridaya pushpa and the mano pushpa i.e. the heart and mind respectively. We are saying here are the flowers, Swami, please take them. Sai says, wait wait … they are not pure and don’t have good smell. So perfume them before you put them at my lotus feet. You have to perfume the heart with love and mind with peace. Then you put them at my lotus feet. Then I will be very happy, and will permanently live in your heart, leading, guiding and navigating you to myself. You are your all my heirs. I am giving power to you, so that you can do my duty, which is to make the world an abode of peace. But what are we doing? In the name of religion and in name of god we are quarreling and we are spoiling the whole human race. There should be no war in the name of religion or in the name of God. We are telling these little boys and girls, that they have to share with their friends or siblings. But what are we doing? We are ourselves not sharing and we are telling these children to share. So begin from yourself. Children will follow automatically.
Listen to me carefully. “Save, store and Share”. Without saving and storing we can’t share. We are ready to share our sorrows and burdens but we are not ready to share our joys or our wealth. My appeal to all the devotees of Sathya Sai on this auspicious day is, wherever you are in this world, unite and try to fulfill his aim. That is the birthday gift to him that you have to give. We are not listening to his words. We have to listen, and only then we will have the right to call ourselves as followers of Sathya Sai.
Sathya Sai said that he does not have any bhakta or devotee, he has only followers. What is the difference asked a DGP when I was in Hyderabad. I said he is giving a message, don’t call yourself devotees, be competent enough as followers. That is one should be ready to follow his footsteps, path, advice and teachings. Then you are followers. Sathya Sai wanted followers not devotees. Try to understand the message. I wish you grand success. On this auspicious day I wish that all the followers of Sathya Sai should unite and try to fulfill his aim and desire and take the light of Prasanthi Nilayam to each and every corner of the earth. Wish you grand success.
