Class 77: Shirdi Sai Baba's ability to see God's vibhuti (divine manifestations) in each and every creature and the 20 different types of feelings of human beings (chapter 10 verses 1 to 5) 
  • Even after explaining the Royal Wisdom and the Royal Secret in the 9th chapter, God still felt like He had  something left to say. Why the Supreme Soul describes His vibhuti (divine manifestations) in chapter 10 completely out of love.
  • The Supreme Soul was still not yet saturated talking about and describing the greatness of this subject of chapter 9. Great Saints explain to us by comparing this to the situation where one is listening to something from their loved one and the listener is not yet saturated from listening to their loved one. 
  • Only when envy goes away from one's life can one love; while envy is there then there is no love. When there is comparison then there is no love. This is because the birth of envy is comparison.
  • Why after knowing about God's vibhuti (divine manifestations), devotion for God becomes straightforward
  • How the Supreme Soul showed 17 of His vibhuti (divine manifestations) in the 8th to the 12th verses of the 7th chapter, 37 of His vibhuti (divine manifestations) in the 16th to 19th verses of the 9th chapter and now He will show 45 of His vibhuti (divine manifestations) in the 4th to 6th verses of this chapter.

  • Shrimad Adi Shankracharyaji's definition on the intelligence and why the intelligence is a feeling.  The difference between the intelligence of human beings and that of animals and plants.
  • Ramanunjacharyaji's definition of the intelligence as the power of the mind to determine.  Why the mind is like a USB stick.

  • Why the egotism of human beings goes away when they go close to nature.
  • Why there can only be forgiveness if one has the power to retribute someone but does not do it.
