Sathya Sai on having a balanced life with worldly activities done with Dharma and spiritual activities

On my Facebook share of Radio Sai Facebook post, Today's Sai Inspires from Prasanthi Nilayam,, 3rd Dec. 2017, I (Ravi) wrote the following:

Bhagavan says, "Man walks with two legs: iha and para (this world and the other), dharma and Brahman, righteousness and God! If one is totally engrossed in this world, the person is choosing to travel all through one’s life with a handicap, hopping on one leg. That is fraught with trouble; the person may fall any moment and break the shin."

Ravi: Bhagavan demonstrated this in Prasanthi Nilayam, as he would want people to have a balance between contribution to worldly activities (done with a Sathya and Dharma approach suffused with Prema), and their spiritual-only or mainly spiritual activities like singing Bhajans, praying, studying scripture and contemplating on it, meditation etc. The emphasis in Prasanthi Nilayam system while Bhagavan was in physical form was this balance. And I think that is what is needed for most people in the world today. A path where they can be part of the material world but also progress spiritually.
