2 The Sai Ideal – Ceiling on Desires “Man is the embodiment of divine consciousness. Only when he is pure, he can experience that consciousness. Through attachment to worldly pleasures man gets bound to the physical and becomes oblivious to his essential divinity” Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba 2

3 The Sai Ideal – Sai Ideal Spiritual Organization “ Why are we in this Organization? What is the purpose? You must have the firm belief that the aim of this Organization is to remove the obstacles that keep man away from God, that separate humanity from Divinity.” “Your goal is permanent and eternal bliss. It is within you and can be attained only through love.” Sathya Sai Speaks, Volume 32, Part 2; Chapter 16: Complete Surrender Confers Bliss Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba 3

4 Canadian National Spiritual Project Theme, will focus primarily on “The Sai Ideal” and the three sub-themes, “God Is”, “I Am I” and “Love All Serve All” supported by Swami’s program Ceiling on Desires Uniting Swami’s programs supports devotees to experience divinity by reflecting and reducing worldly desires that prevent us from transforming ourselves with love. 4

5 What is the proper plan of study? Swami answers this question as follows : “This is the proper plan of study - reading, reflection, and regular application in life. Study is work. Inquiry into the value and applicability of what is studied is worship. The experience of the validity and value of practice is wisdom.” 5

6 Canadian National Spiritual Project First four months we will focus our Study Circles on “God Is”, the next four months “I am I,” and the last four months “Love all Serve All.” Ceiling on Desires (Food, Time, Energy and Money) will be included each month as part of the discussion on realizing “The Sai Ideal.” Devotees will be asked to read from monthly Sai Ideal Suggested Examples and choose a Ceiling on Desires to practice 6

7 Canadian National Spiritual Project A list of Daily Practices for the realization of God Is, I Am I & Love All Serve All is recommended and can also be used as topics for additional study circles The program will be completed with “9 Discourses” and a Ceiling on Desires centre workshop. A report will be requested from the regional coordinators and centres then presented to the Canadian Sai Council 7

8 The Sai Ideal – Ceiling on Desires “If there are no desires, then one can truly experience Eternal and Supreme Happiness, which is what God is.” “Not only should you curb your desires, and set aside the savings thus gained to serve the poor, all aspirants along the spiritual path should put a rein on growing desires, within an increasingly materialistic, uncaring, wasteful and obsolescence oriented society.” Sai Baba – pg discourses 8

12 “It is not easy for you to comprehend the true nature of God’s love. You are aware only of worldly attachments, which are subject to ups and downs. What is liable to such changes cannot be called love. True love is unchanging. It is Divine. Love is God. Live in love. Embark on this path of love.” pg discourses Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba 12
