The Avatar makes use of many tools to convey His love and wisdom to humanity. Among these is humour also. Many are the incidents in which Swami's humour oozes through and arouses great laughter. Many more are those incidents where a humorous situation develops because of an interaction between the Lord and devotee.
However, are we so lost in laughing while reliving these episodes that we lose the light they bring to us? From Sathya Sai's mischievous prank in the hostel stores to the episode where a little boy seemed to embarrass Him with his spontaneous reply; from public-speaking bloopers to shocking replies to Swami's questions - all these have so much to teach us.
This is a talk delivered on the 31st of May 2015 in the Satsangh Hall at Prasanthi Nilayam.
