Sathya Sai Vahini reveals to us in unmistakable terms that the self in man is “no other than the Overself or God.” We are told that this is true not only of mankind, but of all beings, everywhere and anywhere. This Vahini is the Gita given to us by the Sanathana Sarathi, who is eager & ready to hold the reins of our senses, mind, consciousness, ego, & intellect, and guide us to supreme peace.

Leela Kaivalya Vahini
Leela Kaivalya Vahini (originally published in the Sanathana Sarathi periodical) is a cool, crystal clear stream that flows from the Divine pen of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba to dissolve all obstacles, like doubts and dogmas, purposeless arguments, and flimsy fancies of the sadhaka (spiritual aspirant).
Prashna means “question”. Uttara means “answer” and Vahini indicates “a stream”. This book is the stream of the questions that have evoked answers from Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba.

In the pages of the magazine, published with Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba's Blessings and named after Him as Sanathana Sarathi, He wrote, out of His overwhelming Prema towards humanity, caught in the meshes of cynicism and creedal fanaticism, this series of articles, called Gnyana Vahini. They are now put together in book form, for your guidance and inspiration.
This little book contains the articles written by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, in the series "Dharma Vahini", for the monthly journal Sanathana Sarathi. Careful reading of this book and practising the dharmic guidelines laid down by Bhagawan Baba will help one to face the challenges of life courageously.

What does it mean to ‘Surrender’? When asked to hand over the reins of one’s life to another, one generally feels insecure. One associates giving up with losing control. But, surrender is not about losing control. It’s about allowing a higher wisdom to take charge over one’s life. Surrender is tuning in to a higher will. It’s an attitude, which can change the way you perceive vicissitudes in life.
