Young Adult Spiritual Development Program, 2012

This article contains a series of newsletters and study circle materials on the 4S principle explained by Sathya Sai Baba. In Sathya Sai Baba’s words,

First of all, one should have faith in one’s own Self. Develop self-confidence, which will lead to self-satisfaction. When you have self-satisfaction, you will be prepared for self-sacrifice. Only through self-sacrifice, can one attain self-realization. Self-realization means to realize that you are everything. Self-confidence is the foundation, self-satisfaction is the wall, self-sacrifice is the roof and self-realization is life. No one can live in a building without a roof. Roof cannot be laid without walls and walls cannot be raised without a foundation. So, self-confidence, self-satisfaction, self-sacrifice are very essential for self-realization..
