When the rich, fertile soil of the mind is sprinkled with the water of devotion, the rapture thereof, bursts forth. Avoiding of birth and death.
Sai SatCharitra Chapter 6
When the rich, fertile soil of the mind is sprinkled with the water of devotion, renunciation sprouts; knowledge blossoms; kaivalya comes to fruition; and the rapture thereof, bursts forth. Avoiding of birth and death is then a certainty.
Baba used to tell those on the Path that the intellect or the buddhi is like the Prime Minister or wazir while the body, hands, feet and other organs are like servants. Now the brain of every human being is divided into two parts. The front and the back. The front part of the brain is the Receiver. It receives all information and messages and thus it plays the role of the reporter or the one who receives and transmits information. The front part is to receive and sort out what is received. You need to calmly receive and then by using your intellect decide what should be kept, what should be stored and what should be deleted. The second part of the brain is like a treasurer, a protector or the memory vault, like a ‘telegraph officer or an editor’. Baba had predicted that a time will come when mankind will have machines that will be very advanced, but there is nothing more advanced than the mind and intellect. The body is the most advanced instrument ever created by Allah, thus respect the body and the functions of the body which includes the mind and heart.
