Mata Amritanandamayi

Amma says the news of the passing away of Sri Sathya Sai Baba has saddened everybody. At this moment, she says that He has shown the way to lead a love filled path. His life was His message, His devotees instead of feeling sad of His passing, should develop Athma Vishwas - strength of spirit and follow His teachings and that is the best devotion they can show HIM.

Swamijis message regarding the departure of Sai Baba...

To the Bhaktas of Sri Sathya Sai Baba and all Spiritual Seekers around the world,

With Sathya Sai Baba who left this mortal world on Sunday, 24 April 2011, the world lost a great spiritual Light.

Sai Baba inspired, blessed and guided millions of people around the world even though he stayed often in one place only as he didn't travel anymore; like to one light many, many moths fly. This is the gurus light. We offer our salutation to that divine Light that merged into the Brahman Light. Those who saw him were blessed ones, those who heard about him were lucky ones and those who only tried to find negative qualities in him are lost in darkness.

I wish for all bhaktas of Sri Sai Baba to carry the light of their guru within their hearts and continue the spiritual work in his sense. The guru will be with you all the times even when he has left his physical appearance.

Be sure, the divine light will come again. My humble adoration to that divine light and blessings to all spiritual seekers around the world.
