In the opening paragraphs of this brief testament, Bhagawan Baba expresses concern that today's youth lack self-confidence to take up spiritual practices because of the fact that religions have become too narrow-minded to inspire them and that they are either overwhelmed by worldly anxieties or carried away by its tantalizing appearance. Addressing the doubts of modern day sadhakas who wonder whether the Vedas have any relevance today, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba Baba establishes in lofty expressions that the Vedas are absolute and eternal and confer peace, welfare and happiness in human society at all times.
