Bhagawan Sri Satya Sai Baba on 'Bhajan'

"Bhajan is one of the processes by which you can train the mind to expand into eternal values. Teach the mind to revel in the Glory and Majesty of God. Clean it away from petty horizons of pleasure and passions. Bhajan induces in you a desire to experience the truth, to glimpse the beauty that is God, to taste the Bliss that is the Self. It encourages man to dive into himself and be genuinely his real Self."

- Baba

Bhagawan Sri Satya Sai Baba's practical advice on Speaking the Truth

"Speak the truth and speak pleasantly; simply because a statement will be welcome to the hearer, do not speak it out to win his approval; if speaking truth will cause grief or pain, keep silent. That is the vow of truth in ordinary daily life. Do not have hypocrisy or crookedness in your speech. Both unpleasant truth and pleasant untruth have to be avoided."

- Baba
