Baba’s Mission and Advice
“Saint Ramadas (1608-1681) flourished in the 17th century, and fulfilled to a great extent his mission of protecting cows and Brahmins against the Yavanas (Mohammedens); but within two centuries after him, the split between the two communities – Hindus and Mohammedens widened up and Sai Baba came to bridge that gulf.
His constant advice to all was to this effect. “Ram (the God of the Hindus) and Rahim (the God of the Mohammedens) were one and the same; there was not the slightest difference between them then, why should their devotees fall out and quarrel among themselves? You ignorant folk, join hands and bring both the communities together, act sanely and thus you will gain your object of national unity. It is not good to dispute and argue. So, don’t argue, don’t emulate others. Always consider your interest and welfare. The Lord will protect you. Yoga, sacrifice, penance, and knowledge are the means to attain God. If you do not succeed in this by any means, in vain is your birth. If anyone does any evil unto you, do not retaliate. If you can do anything, do some good unto others.”
This in short was Sai Baba’s advice to all, and this will stand us in good stead both in material and spiritual matters.”
