23) Above all, do not give room for the cancer of doubt. Why argue over Me, over this point or that concerning Me? Who exactly is the Baaba, you discuss and debate! What does it matter to you who I happen to be? You are concerned about your goal, your ideal, your experience, your effort is it not? Why then worry about My Origin, My Nature, My Mystery, My Miracle? The basic thing is the hand, the cup it holds is secondary. Aadehya (supported) is less in importance than the Aadhaara (support), the Basic Reality, the Pure Existence. When you can not reach down to your own Basic Reality, why waste time in exploring the essence of Godhead? As a matter of fact, you can understand Me only when you have understood yourself, your own Basic Truth.

24) There are again some others who are swept off their feet by hysterical demonstrations by certain weak-minded individuals, which are described as My speaking through them or acting through them! Take it from Me, I am not given to such absurdities! I do not use others as My media; I have no need to. I do not swing from side to side and prattle! Why, even those who torture their bodies and suffer the pains of asceticism for years, until ant-hills overwhelm them and they become as stiff as tree-stumps, find it difficult to realize the Lord. How then can these idlers who eat their fill and wander about as slaves of their senses, earn that status so cheap? Their gestures, words and actions are hollow and vain; those who burn incense before them and revere them are turning away from Me and running after falsehood.

25) My name is Sathya Sai; it means, “He Who reclines n Truth. "

I am reminded now of past events, events in my previous body.

Even then, I had Sathya or Truth as my Support.

A wrestler challenged Me then for a fight and he was defeated before a large gathering of villagers. Pained by the insult, he invited Baaba for a second tussle the next day, so that he might win back his lost reputation. The man swore that if defeated again, he would wear a long rough kafni and move about with his head covered in cloth. He dared Baaba too to swear likewise. Baaba was in no mood to enter the arena again and he was quite prepared to concede the fellow the victory he craved. So he accepted defeat and himself donned the kafni and the kerchief. The wrestler felt great remorse and his insolence melted away. He appealed to Baaba to resume his usual style of dress and released him from the obligation. But Baaba stuck to his word. He was Sathya itself, then, as He is now. He wore the new attire.
