Om Sathguru Shri Seshadri Swamigal Thiruvadikkae
Shri Sathya Sai Baba (Prashanthi Nilayam, Puttapurti, Andhra Pradesh)
“If the Heart is Pure, then the continuity of the OM sound will not be broken. If anything bad arises, it is unreal, for ONLY OM is REAL!”
There are 3 kinds of Sanyasis:
1) One who is a Sanyasi only by attire; who pretends renunciation by wearing an ochre robe. There are thousands of such in India.
2) Next is the Sanyas who gains control of merely his senses.
Such a person should never renounce the world for solitude. They should remain where they are, in life, and watch their reactions to know if their control over the senses is genuine.
3) Then there is he, who has surrendered to the Lord, dedicating the fruit of every action to Him. Such a Sanyasi has no ego. His heart is pure. His senses become calm and are not affected by the vagaries of the world.
