II 1. How we can make God happy?

Swami will be happy when you make your mother happy. Swami does not want anything. Many people wish Me happy birthday. You need not wish Me happy birthday since I am always happy. Give happiness to your parents, friends, and relatives. How can you wish God happiness? I often tell the students, “Happiness is union with God.” God is pleased only when parents are respected. I do not desire anything. My happiness lies in you being happy and you making your parents happy.
Sathya Sai Baba, 19 Nov 1998
   
God comes to you on His own when you love and serve your parents. You do not need to enquire what pleases Swami. Satisfaction of parents is what pleases Me. I do not require anything. When you make your parents happy I am also happy. . Do not try to satisfy Swami, make efforts to satisfy your parents.
Sathya Sai Baba, 19 Nov 1998
   
You say Swami’s love is that of thousand mothers. When you are unable to comprehend and experience the love of a single mother, how can you understand the love of thousand mothers? If you are unable to please your mother, how can you make Swami, happy?
Sathya Sai Baba, 19 Nov 1998
   
If you do not honor the parents who are the creators in human form, how can you learn to honor the Creator in Divine Form?
Sathya Sai Baba, 18 Apr 1966
   
How do you give Me Ananda? By taking to heart what I say and putting it into daily practice.
Sathya Sai Baba, 29 Sep 1960
