It was during the 9th All-India conference that Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba unveiled the 9-point code of conduct of which, Ceiling on Desires (COD) was an integral part. This concept was immediately put into practice by the Sathya Sai Organization. However, nobody seemed to have a clear understanding of the spirit of COD. It was with infinite mercy that Baba explained the magnificence of COD in a discourse at Abbotsbury in January 1983.
When we understand it truly, COD presents itself as a panacea to all world problems - materialistic and spiritual. The example of a student who had the most testing yet phenomenal experience of COD will be an interesting addition.
This talk was delivered in the Satsangh Hall at Prasanthi Nilayam on the 2nd of February, 2015.
