Merton Sai Youth Reading List

"Study with faith and devotion. Delve into the significance and the meaning of what you read; and, always have before you the goal of putting what you read into practice. Unless you do so, the Study Circle will remain a half-Circle forever; it cannot be a full Circle."


(Sathya Sai Speaks, p. 59 in American version)


Recomended reading list for the youths of Merton Sai centre. Most of these books are freely available for borrowing to registered users of the Sai Mandir Library.


The Message of the Lord

As it says, a practical philosophy and was personally recommended by K. Chakravarthi (Secretary, Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust) on the 2004 Sai Mahima trip, who described it as compulsory reading for all Sai devotees. It seeks to explore the message of the Bhagawad Gita and the rich world of Sai literature and hopes to "aid the reader in applying the teachings of the Lord in day-to-day life". This may! be more appropriate for youth who have had some exposure to the stories of Lord Rama and Krishna. However it is written in such a beautifully lucid manner that all should find it easily accessible. The paradigms it incorporates encompass Swami's discourses over the decades and is a point of reference for most youth study circles.
