“From the bosom of Prasanthi Nilayam, where the beautiful form of Sri Sathya Sai merged unto eternity, It redefines Its Presence as an experiential continuum. That by a closing of the eyes, He reveals Himself and His voice echoes clearly within, is as much mystical, as tangible. The stated too often shades the mysterious. This is the beauty of both Life and the incomprehensible Divine.
When Vinayaka Krishna Gokak described Swami as the manifestation of the statement, “Handsome is as handsome does,” Swami sweetly responded that He fits better to, “Love is as Love does.” And He went on to make Prof V. K. Gokak the first Vice Chancellor of His University.
Swami enabled in us both the discovery of Love as the very core of our being and service to all as its purest expression. Truly, from what one was blessed to see from close quarters, He was Love embodied and perpetually expressing it. Love is all there was, is and will be. In it, everything is united and understood. And Love that knows no definition, defined Sri Sathya Sai. The Task at hand is to fill every moment with that expression of Love, as He did. With this, every moment of ours touches eternity and we, Him!”
