"O God! How does it happen?
in this poor old world

That Thou art so great,
Yet nobody finds Thee;

That Thou art so near,
yet nobody feels Thee;

Thou givest Thyself to everybody,
yet nobody knows Thy Name.

Men flee from Thee and say
they cannot see Thee;

They turn their back and say
they cannot see Thee;

They stuff their ears and say
they cannot hear Thee."

Thus lamented Hans Denk, as have also countless other human beings. God heard the cry. He pitied this poor world, and willed to rescue us. He incarnated as Sathya Sai.

Sai has come as small as man, so we can find Him amidst us.
Sai has come as near and dear, so we can feel Him close.
Sai gives Himself to everybody, yet no one knows His name (All names are His!).
Sai is everywhere, so as to whichever direction we flee, we find Him there.
Sai is behind us, beside us, before us, so we can never turn our backs on Him.
Sai ever resides within our hearts, so with ears stuffed we still hear His voice.

Humans need not lament their weakness any more. Sai, the Avatar of Divine Love, is here. Let us rejoice and listen to His voice. The poor, old world of today will be the happy new world of tomorrow.

Jai Sai Ram
