Why God is silent for cruel deeds?

satya sai baba quote
Where people accept narrow ideas and where people conduct themselves unjustly or incorrectly, God remains only a witness to all that and has no part to play in such situations. It is the quality of a bright lamp to shed light. In the light thus shed, many persons may be reading texts which they wish to understand. They may also perform several good deeds. They may also perform thefts in the light shed by the lamp. They may use the light as a help to themselves in doing many bad things. But, there is no great reputation which the lamp itself gains by the many scholars who benefit by reading books in the light shed by the lamp, nor is there any disrespect which the lamp acquires because of the false accounts written by people using the light... Whatever bad or good is done, it is not done by the lamp. In the same manner, God does not gather any praise or blemish by the good or bad done by the individuals in this world. He is only a witness to all that goes on.

Attention on Spiritual Matters

saibaba satya sai
While a dancer is dancing, she carefully moves her limbs according to the rhythm and yet she pays great attention to the essentials of her dance. So also, man, fulfilling his daily duties and doing his daily work, must yet keep his attention fully focused on spiritual matters.

swamy travelling to kodaikanal

sai baba travelling to airport in car
sai baba getting into airoplane for kodaikanal travel

I remember swamy's maroon colour contessa, the longest car.. after that many cars came and gone.. now i see another car, brand i dont know..

satish naik describes the swamy leaving to kodaikanal event here:"

Amidst cheers, prayers and tears, Swami left for Kodai Kanal this morning as thousands gathered on either side of the road, to greet a warm farewell to the Dearest Son of this holy Puttaparthi…

Swami had already prolonged His stay for about 15 days and all of us were expecting Swami would go to Kodai any time..
There was news running around that Swami might leave this morning (26 th April) and governement owned Indian airlines flight landed in the Sathya Sai Airport around 8:30am confirming Swami’s departure from Puttaparthi.
The selected Students, teachers and other dignitaries were already assembled in the Airport… There was a separate lift placed for Swami to get into the plane and in no time Swami’s flight took off,around 10:30am, as thousands waved from the ground…

Puttaparthi, was fortunate to have Swami a bit longer than He used to …. Courtesy of the marriage and some other functions…Devotees thronged in large numbers, ignoring the scorching sun….

Puttaparthi will now wear a deserted look, SANNATA as they call in hindi.. All the big overseas groups, South Africans, Americans, Russians, all will be gone.. It will be a quite time for other wise busy Puttaparthi…

All the deserving and desiring beggars will be gone (many of them have already worked overtime as Swami prolonged His visit..)… and for all the flower vendors, rickshaw drivers it will be a tough time.

The past 12 months… witnessed a NEW Swami, a big revolution in all our lives.. Two big events that occurred were the two Yagnas in Parthi and Chennai.. We got to witness about 20 discourses in this 12 months.. there is also a sea change in our Sai Family.. Love is blossoming, hatred is declining… jealousy is running away from us… yet we all know there is a long way to go and our Swami will definitely make sure that we reach our Goal.. "

Egoism is a thorny bush, which when planted and fostered in one's heart, makes one pay the penalty. Egoism makes enemies of even dearest friends; it ruins many good causes and projects, for it does not allow two competent men to work together. Grief follows it like a shadow. Joy, peace, courage, co-operation and love flourish in the absence of the ego. When man is aware that the same Divine consciousness that motivates him is equally motivating all others, then love ousts the ego to the background and takes charge of man's actions, words and thoughts.
