Isa and Sai
Many may not be aware that "Isa" represents Jesus Christ. During the unknown years in the life of Jesus, he was travelling to many places and he studied in some monastery. His name is found to be "Isa" at that time and there is a great deal of research on this subject. It is interesting to note the similarity in the name of "Isa" and Sai. Jesus Christ has said at first, "I am the Messenger of God. After some time he has asserted "I am the Son of God". Finally He proclaimed "I and My father are ONE. Saibaba too states that "All are children of God and hence all are eligible for the legacy of God. He said, "I am God, You are God, "I know that I am God but you do not know that You are God. This is the fundamental difference between the Divine Wisdom and earthly ignorance. To teach these great Truths to humanity great Souls incarnate from time to time in different parts of the world to guide the humanity towards higher Truths. When Jesus was born, the condition of the people there was very pathetic. The mighty were looting the innocent gullible public in the name of Religion and Church. The temple or church has been converted as a commercial center instead of a place of worship. The high priests were arrogant and authoritative. They never bothered about morals. Their only aim was money. At the crucial time, the birth of Jesus has happened. None could guess that He is going to be the transforming power. He never exhibited himself till he entered the church and drove the mercenaries away. He wanted the Church to be a place of worship of the Supreme! People who saw the Truth and Wisdom in his teachings started gathering around him for guidance. In course of time, he started curing the blind, dumb and deaf. He spoke without fear or favor. His words were authoritative and founded on the Truths of God's Kingdom. He gathered disciples and was wandering far and wide, teaching the innocent. He revived "Lazarus from death" He fed a gathering of 5000 people with few loaves of bread and fish. He stopped the fury of the sea. Yet, He was tortured and crucified in the holy cross by the pretenders of religion fearing the popularity of Christ. He rose on the third day from the Tomb.
The life of Sathya Saibaba too contained many such cures and revival from certain death. He preached Truth and Love as an all embracing power. He loved all alike and none is foreign to him. All are his children.. He asserted that the "World is My Mansion. Each room a country. The enormous work done by Jesus during His life time is the transformation of the heart of many atheists and agnostics. Swami Vivekananda has revealed that an Avatar or incarnation will create an Ocean where there was not even a drop of water. Such is the Power contained in the incarnations of God. Jesus said, "Love your enemy". Forgive seventy times seven. Saibaba has said, "Love All, Serve All. Help Ever, Hurt never. Forget and forgive the harm done to you by others. He considers "Forbearance as the greatest virtue. Rest in next hub.
