SUMMER SHOWERS 1990
Specific instructions from Sathya Sai Baba on daily living and spiritual growth were the theme of this extremely practical summer session. Beginning with culture (samskriti), Swami unfolds the precise tools needed to help us purify ourselves and manifest our inherent divinity. The basic building blocks of the Vedas are his blueprint, and He lays them out in a progression: sanctify the body, master the senses, conquer the tongue, hold the reins on the mind and cleanse its impurities, cultivate the intelligence (“the peaceful state of the intellect”), deal with ego and attachment, understand the three human qualities (gunas), know thyself, attain true freedom. This is a landmark book of Baba’s teachings, and it can be used as a handbook for spiritual growth.
