      Message for Global Peace Now, from India:

      Understand -- KSHAMA --

      February 13, 2003, Thursday

      Following the announced American Peace Mission to India begun
      January 27, 2003, supported by The India Overture of The Whole
      Truth Campaign, a channel of communications has been opened to
      The White House with faxes to the office of The White House Chief
      of Staff starting with the February 6th Global Peace Initiative,
      followed by the February 7th White House New Science Overture File
      opening, and the February 11 and 12 submission of The Message of
      Peace to All of The World from Humanity's Treasured Friend, Sri
      Sathya Sai Baba, in the form of his newly released to the public
      Global Peace Understanding Message in The Times of India
      published in its Bombay edition, February 7, 2003, as
      "Kshama, the Grandest and Noblest Virtue."

      This represents the first time in history that the spiritual message of
      Kshama is thusly released to the public, a response to the needs
      of these times for deeper human understanding of the overlooked
      mental causes of war and peace.

      "Kshama" is reproduced below followed by a correction notice on
      quotes erroneously attributed, as the February 1st and 3rd spoken
      words of the Baba, in the Global Peace Initiative of February 6, 2003.

      "Kshama" is written by The One whom the New York Times in their
      December 1, 2003, article called "the unusual holy man...A Friend
      in India to All the world...who draws presidents, prime ministers and
      other leaders not only from India but also from outside it; altogether
      he claims followers in 178 countries...The Baba's mixture of religions
      extends far beyond traditional Hindu beliefs, and that lets him attract
      politicians of various faiths, including Muslims like President A. P. J.
      Abdul Kalam of India...Lining the road to the ashram were stone tablets
      inscribed with the swami's utterances...'Money comes and money goes;
      Morality comes and grows'...Famous for seldom saying much in public
      even to his followers, the Baba silently greeted President Kalam...
      ...Preaching the five principles of truth, peace, love, nonviolence
      and right conduct, the Baba...represents unity of religion, all religions...
      The president emerged...In a brief interview there, he said he had
      discussed with the swami how to achieve an educational system
      that combined values with science. 'When they are fused, you get
      an enlightened citizen,' said President Kalam...Coming from a
      Muslim background, the president is a rarity among national
      politicians in a country that is four-fifths Hindu...the chief minister,
      or governor, of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh here, said
      the Baba was not just a holy man but a public policy expert...Using
      donations from around the world, the Baba has built two
      hospitals near here that provide free care to the poor. He is now
      spending $50 million to build systems for drinking water and
      irrigation...the chief minister said, 'Everyone has to come here.'"

      In his International Herald Tribune article of December 3, 2002,
      "Old mantras and new software side by side," the United Nations
      Under-Secretary-General for Public Information said about his visit,
      "...the spiritual leader Sathya Sai Baba...was astonishing at
      several levels. Sai Baba uttered insights about my family and myself
      that he could not possibly have known. He has a habit, disconcerting
      at first, of turning his palm quizzically outward and staring off into the
      distance, as if silently interrogating an unseen, all-knowing source.
      Sometimes he scribbles in the air with a finger as if dashing off a
      note to a celestial messenger...Most startling, he materializes gifts
      from thin air - in my case a gold ring with nine embedded stones...
      But a skilled magician can do that, and it would be wrong to see
      Sai Baba as a conjurer. He has channeled the hopes and energies
      of his followers into constructive directions, both spiritual and
      philanthropic. Everything at his complex is staffed by volunteers
      who rotate through Puttaparthi at well-organized two-week intervals.
      Many left distinguished positions behind. The free hospital in
      Puttaparthi is one of the best in India; many leading doctors volunteer
      their services. Sai Baba has built schools and colleges, and is now
      involved in a project to bring irrigation to a number of parched
      southern districts...The software programs of the information
      technology companies dotting Bangalore's 'Silicon Plateau' may
      be the new mantras of India, but they supplement, rather than supplant,
      the old mantras. Sai Baba and Infosys are emblematic of an India
      that somehow manages to live in several centuries at once."

      In its January 19, 2003, article, "US astronaut to spread Sai Baba's
      message for global peace" from the Press Trust of India, the Hindustan
      Times published in Hyderabad said, "Brain O'Leary, a physicist and
      former science and energy policy advisor to four US presidential
      candidates, is arriving in India on Friday to meet with Sai Baba...
      O'Leary will also meet 'free energy technology' scientist,
      Paramahamsa Tewari of Karwar, former head of the Kaiga
      atomic station, whose theory of extracting energy from space
      has found followers abroad...Describing Baba as 'the greatest
      example of inter-faith spiritual unity since Buddha,' the sources
      said that by spreading his 'message of truth, peace, love,
      righteousness, and nonviolence' the US astronaut hopes that
      global peace will 'break out in mere days from across the US,
      India, Pakistan, to Iraq.'"

      In apparent response to the supplication of these newspaper
      articles, and following days after the Columbia Space Shuttle
      tragedy, this Friend in India to All the World has issued what
      may be the first newspaper article ever published attributed to
      his direct authorship, a Message of Global Peace for All
      of The World, KSHAMA:

      Kshama, the Grandest and Noblest Virtue

      By Bhagwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba

      Friday, February 7, 2003

      The Times of India - Mumbai Edition - Page 2

      True and Selfless Love manifests as Sacrifice.

      Such Love knows no hatred. It envelops the en­tire Universe,
      and is ca­pable of drawing Sathya Sai Baba near even those
      who are seem­ingly far away.

      Love it is that transforms the human into the Divine.

      In the phenomenal world, you come across many shades and
      derivatives of this Primordial Love. You love your father, mother,
      brother, sister, friends and so on. In all such cases, there is always
      a tinge of selfishness some­where or the other.

      Divine Love, on the other hand, is totally free of even the slightest
      trace of selfish­ness.

      You must surrender to such Love, become com­pletely submerged
      by it, and experience the Bliss it confers.

      For acquiring such Love, the quality of Kshama or forbearance
      is a vital neces­sity. Every individual must cultivate this noble quality.

      Kshama is not achieved by reading books or learned from an instructor.

      Nor can it be received as a gift from someone else.

      This prime virtue Kshama can be acquired solely by self-effort, that is,
      by facing diverse problems squarely, enduring difficul­ties of various
      sorts, not giving in to anxieties, and bearing with equanimity suffering
      as well as sorrow. In the absence of Kshama, man becomes susceptible
      to various evil tendencies. Ha­tred and jealousy easily take root in a
      person lacking this virtue.

      Kshama is the grandest and the noblest among virtues.

      The troubles the country is currently pass­ing through are largely
      due to the absence of this noble quality of Kshama. With­out Kshama,
      mankind be­comes degraded and starts declining, but if it has this
      quality then it can progress in leaps and bounds.

      Kshama is thus the very breath of life.

      Everything must have a basis. For spiritual progress and
      advancement, Kshama is the real basis or foundation. When
      Kshama disappears, disturbance sets in and there is decline.
      Great countries have lost their glory, prestige and reputation for
      this reason. Patience is therefore a virtue that must be assidu­ously
      cultivated, by individ­uals as well as nations, if troubles and
      tribulations are to be successfully faced. Without patience and
      the capacity for forbearance, one becomes spiritually weak.

      When patience is gone, the greatest of men get reduced to utter fools.

      The importance of Kshama cannot be over-stressed. This virtue is
      best cultivated under adverse cir­cumstances, and one must therefore
      gladly welcome troubles instead of regard­ing them as unwelcome.

      Jealousy is the greatest enemy of man and it takes root when Kshama
      is ab­sent. If you possess the virtue of Kshama, then none of these
      enemies can come anywhere near you. Cultivation of Kshama must
      therefore be an im­portant priority.

      No doubt you will face many difficul­ties during life's journey, but bravely
      march on, tak­ing courage from the fact that once you have Kshama
      there is nothing that you cannot achieve.

      ------end Kshama article published as authored by Swami Sai Baba


      Whether one believes that God operates through the mind of Sai Baba,
      or whether one believes, as he teaches us, that God operates through
      the mind of all of humanity, this message is offered for consideration by
      those who would seriously wonder at how the above message
      "rings true in their own hearts, in their own conscience," the only proper
      way for such messages to become understood and applied by the
      human mind.

      Dr. Brian O'Leary has experienced chagrin beyond belief over the
      publicity surrounding his peace mission to India, considering himself
      simply a friend and colleague of Swami Sai Baba, especially in light
      of this past week of vigorous internet controversy globally over quotes
      attributed to Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Feb.1 and Feb.3, which it has been
      learned are instead not direct quotes but a "spiritual interpretation" of
      the Baba's viewpoint offered mistakenly as direct quotes.

      Because excerpts of these quotes were included in the American
      Global Peace Initiative of February 6, 2003, widely circulated on the
      internet and faxed to The White House that day, below are comments
      for perspective on this "spiritual interpretation" which I underwrote
      believing it authenticated and because of how it "rang true in my heart."

      -----begin interpretation quotes correction/explanation:

      Message from Al Mehdi, Bhagwan Swami, His Holiness Bharatiya:

      [Al Mehdi is name of the "messiah-like" figure predicted by Islam's
      Prophet Mohammed (blessed be his name and memory) to come
      and bring peace through surrender to The Will of God by all humanity]

      ["His Holiness Bharatiya," references sacred name of India, Bharat]

      [Bhagwan Swami Sri Sathya Sai Baba is most typical title name used]

      1 February 2003:

      "Peace is the foundation and Love is the pillar."

      "Do not worry about Iraq attack."

      "This is only an imagination."

      [This is in context of all of physical reality, from divine perspective,
      being considered "illusory" because of the power of the human
      mind to "imagine" something and thereby create it as "real"]

      "Divine Will for Peace would prevail."

      "Many countries have to learn lessons of Love and Peace,
      and Swami would teach them as this is for which Swami
      has descended on Earth."

      [The use of term Swami typically references the human form
      of this teacher who teaches that all human beings are
      Embodiments of Divine Love, and authentic words of Sathya
      Sai Baba have consistently used different terms relating to his
      identity beyond human form which "has descended on Earth,"
      eg, the Sathya Sai Avatar]

      3 February 2003

      "Kalpana Chawla was here on this Earth Planet for the fulfillment
      of a specific task. As soon as that specific task was performed,
      she has been restored to the original destination. It was a heroic
      separation from Earth Planet -- this is not death. This is immortality
      gained by immortal deeds. She served the cause of humanity
      and she used her life for greater tasks of life, researching
      treatments for cancer and other fatal diseases.

      [Typical authentic messages from Sathya Sai Baba do not
      specifically mention individuals except to extent useful examples
      of spiritual principles are being conveyed. That is one of the things
      that made this message so unusual. The deeper message of
      Kshama may be considered the correct message relating to above]

      "People should learn lessons from such an exemplary life."

      "Let the Nation bow to her for her exemplary Mission of Life."

      "There are Pacemakers and there are Peacemakers."

      "Saints in this world and the gentle and good souls are
      virtually Peacemakers and they are sent on this Earth
      for the purpose of identifying the areas were peace is
      to be restored by various methods, and continuous
      efforts are made to restore and re-establish Peace."

      [above final excerpted segment of these quotes requires
      attention to be paid to the Baba's teaching that all human
      beings become divine beings by their spiritual reawakening
      and embodiment of the innately divine human values of truth,
      love, peace, right conduct, and nonviolence]

      screaming The Prayer "Global Peace Now!"
