His Mission

“I have come to tell you of this universal unitary faith, this path of Love. Believe that all hearts are motivated by the One and only God, that all names in all languages, and all forms man can conceive, denote the One and only God. Cultivate the attitude of oneness between people of all creeds, all countries, and all continents. This is the message of Love I bring.”

Sai Baba’s mission is to establish unity in mankind, to reveal the divinity latent in man, and to point out that God is the only goal in life. He never sought to collect followers for any doctrine or to attract disciples. Instead, He only ever spoke of a universal unitary faith, or the Atmic principle (which the Christians might understand as the Christ Consciousness, or the Buddhists as Self-Enlightenment).

His aim is the establishment and spread of righteousness in man so that all live according to the precepts laid down in the scriptures. In this way Sanathana Dharma (the ancient wisdom) is protected. His goal is to instruct all in the essence of the Vedas. He emphasized the path of love, the duty of love and the obligation to love.

He once explained He had not come to speak on behalf of any particular religion. Throughout His life He has sought to confirm everyone in his or her own faith, so that the Christian becomes a better Christian, the Muslim a better Muslim, the Hindu a better Hindu, and the Buddhist a better Buddhist.

Sai Baba teaches that one should not hate any religion or ridicule any form of worship and that one must recognize the underlying Truth in all religions, namely, that God is not separate from us. It is little wonder that the logo of the organisation He established has the symbols of the major religions.

In a letter Baba wrote to an American devotee, Dr. John Hislop, in July 1971, He explained:
“You are the embodiment of God. Fill yourselves with the thought of your almightiness, your majesty and your glory. Open the gates of wisdom. Enter the abode bliss. Rest in peace forever.”

At the World Conference of His devotees in 1985, He pronounced their role in His mission:
“Your mission has begun. Those are my words to you, my devotees. Each of you has a unique and valuable part to play in this lifetime. Only those whom I have called can serve Me.”

Sai Baba told them they would be His instruments from whom His love would pour to the world. For this purpose, He urged His devotees to express the purity of their hearts to all human beings and all living things, and to act without regard to the fruits of their work. At the same time, He cautioned that if their ego descended upon them, His work would cease.

In as much as these words were expressed to those who call themselves devotees, they apply equally to all aspirants who love and seek to serve the formless God in any of His many manifestations. Every spiritual aspirant has a unique role in the Divine mission to uplift humanity and to bring love and peace; by surrendering one’s ego one opens one’s heart to allow the Lord to think, to act, and to love through oneself.
