Lord Of The Time Is a Silent Witness

"I have often told you how God represents time in its various aspects. God is described as 'Samvatsara". "Vatsara" means one who is engaged in sport. 'Govatsara', in referring to Krishna, means one who sports with cows. 'Samvatsara' means 'playing with all'. The time is available equally to all, whether he is a millionaire or a pauper. Even an emperor is subject to passage of time. Time is a witness to what everyone is doing. On a stage, there are a number of lights. One light is turned towards an actor in the robe of king. Another light is turned towards a beggar. Yet another light is focused on a man reading the Ramayana. Another light may be focused on a fighting scene. Although lights illumine a variety of scenes, they remain unaffected by the behaviour of the actors. The lights simply bear witness to the actions but no blame attaches to them for what the actors do. The actors alone are affected by what they do. In the same manner, the Divine, as the Lord of Time, remains only as a witness to the passing show. Your actions may be unholy, but time remains untainted." Sai Baba, SS, 4/90, p. 91 

Power Of Time Is Incomprehensible 

"We regard Yugadi as marking the beginning of a New Year. In fact, it is one of the forms of God. The entire cosmos is bound by time. It is permeated by time. It is the product of time. It is destroyed by time. No one can comprehend the power of time." Sai Baba. SS, 4/90, p. 89 

Value Of Time

"Time is the most precious in human life" Sai Baba, SS. 4/96, p. 85

"Time is supremely precious. It waits for no one. Everyone has to submit oneself to time. It is not subject to anyone. It is only when time is utilized properly through right actions, then the human can rise to the level of Divine. Man's foremost duty is to make the right use of time through the bodily vesture given to him." Sai Baba, SS, 1/90, p. 9 

"If money is lost, it can be earned again. If health is lost, it may be possible to regain it. But time is lost, it can never be regained. So man should utilise time at his disposal in the right manner. Money decreases only when you spend it. But man's life-span decreases on its own with the passage of time. Every individual should be aware of the scimitar called time hanging over his head ever ready to strike. You should not become its victim. If time is wasted, it cannot be regained. It is not like health and money, which can be regained." Sai Baba, SS. 7/2000. pp. 202 & 203 

Right Use Of Time 

"Your primary duty is to make right use of time. For this purpose, there is no need for you to wait for the beginning of a New Year. Every moment is a manifestation of Time. From seconds to minutes, from minutes to hours, from hours to days and months, and ' from months to a year - this is the endless procession of time. The second is the basis for the year. Hence, every second should be filled with purposeful action." Sai Baba, SS, 4/90. p. 91
