There are always two meanings in spirituality. One the gross, the outer and the subtle, the inner
Bahya Abyanthara bhedath dwividha
The subtle or the inner meaning is imparted by the Guru to the disciple.
The mystic meaning of SAI BABA is Sai and I Are Both Being and Awareness ( Sat Chit Ananda ) and He moves in a mysterious way his wonders to perform.
What is this Being- Awareness - Bliss ? Let us hear what Aurobindo said " The ancients spoke of Ultimate Realtiy negatively.They said it is not This, it is not That ( Neti, Neti ). At the same time they took care to speak of it positively. They said It is This, It is That, It is All. ( Sarvam Brahmamayam ). Brahman, the Absolute, they said is Mind, is Matter, is Energy, is Cosmic Delight, is Sat Chit Ananda. But then Brahman the Absolute cannot be defined by any of these terms, not even by our broadest conception of Absolute Knowledge ( Sat ), Absolute Knowlege ( Chit ) and Absolute Bliss ( Ananda ).
Aurobindo's Dialectical Integralism is at par with Hegelian Dialectical Idealism and Marxist Dialectical Materialism !
Sai's path is Bridal Mysticism, that of conquering the world through Love. He says Jesus conquered by Love, Mohammed conquered by Love, Moses, Aurobindo and Vivekananda conquered by Love. Sai is a bit controversial here when he says Ramana Maharshi's method of Koham? ( Who am I ?) is difficult and cannot be practised easily, as we are sunk in the quagmire of worlidness. Love is simple Wisdom, Love is the Forgiver, Love is the Redeemer and the highest Wisdom is Love !
