MY MESSAGE TO MY DEVOTEES – TWELVE

MY MESSAGE TO MY DEVOTEES – TWELVE

 

 

The body born out of physical pleasure gets destroyed by death. Therefore the body is not permanent. This is known from the time of birth. It is ignorant to be sorrowful. The time span between birth and death is the period for one to make efforts to realize God. By getting involved in physical pleasures during such a rare period, man is getting caught in the eternal cycle of birth and death. Rebirth is unavoidable in such a situation. Only the individual has the power to ensure avoiding rebirth through his efforts. Those who aspire for eternal bliss and permanent salvation must be without any desire. By detaching oneself from body consciousness and family bondage, one must seek Me. Those who long to realize me with a sense of urgency, only for such people I will be near and dear. Those who long for Me till the end will merge in Me. Constant repetition of My name will ensure such a person will not have rebirth. By incessantly remembering Me, the person ultimately dissolves into Me.

GURUVAAR   PRARTHNA - 23/03/2017

.

 

Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, our life without You is incomplete, it is like a flying aircraft without pilot, riding in a moving car without a driver, it is like walking in a dense forest at night without flash light, it is like attempting to make a normal call on a cell phone without sim card, it is tasteless, it is blind, it is cruel, it is a hell on earth, it is a precursor of devastation which will lead to destruction of this world. Baba, please be with us protect us. On this holy day, we start our prayers by reading Your divine guidance from Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.

 

 

 

 

Once, a famous astrologer whose name was Nana Dengle waswith Shrimant Butti. Listen to what he said to him.

 

 

" To-day is a very inauspicious day. Some calamity is to befall you. Have courage but be very careful ".

 

 

After Dengle had said this, Bapusaheb was restless. He kept worrying all the time and time dragged heavily.

 

 

Later on, the whole group went to the Masjid at the usual time. Bapusaheb, Nana and all others went along and sat with Baba.

 

 

Immediately Baba asked Butti: "Well what does this Nana say? Does he predict your death? You have nothing to fear.

 

 

Retort to him without any hesitation. 'You can kill me if you dare to!' After this, now watch what miracle happened.

 

 

In the evening, Bapusaheb went outside to the toilet to ease himself; and, in the toilet there came a snake, at that time.

 

 

Looking at that terrible creature, Bapusaheb came out, while Lahnoo, his servant, thought of killing it with a stone.

 

 

Lahnoo tried to pick up a stone. Bapusaheb objected. He said: "Go bring a stick. It is not right to do this kind of work hastily ".

 

 

When the servant left to get the stick, the snake began to climb the wall, suddenly lost its balance and fell down. Then he crept away through a hole.

 

 

From there, it escaped and there remained no reason to kill it. The incidence reminded him of Baba's words and, as it were, the ordeal was over for both – the serpent and him.

 

 

Be it so. For him, who has by good fortune witnessed the pleasure of Sai's company, it is a source of joy forever and it is impossible to forget.

 

 

By making the devotees undergo such and similar experiences, he has attracted the hearts of his devotees; and to describe them in words, it would be always inadequate5.

 

 

 

 

I bow down to Sree Ganesh

I bow down to Sree Saraswati

I bow down to the Guru

I bow down to the Family Deity

I bow down to Sree Sita-Ramachandra

I bow down to Sree Sadguru Sainath.

MY MESSAGE TO MY DEVOTEES – ELEVEN

MY MESSAGE TO MY DEVOTEES –  ELEVEN

 

 

There are several ways to reach and realize God. To follow disciplines espoused in Vedas, Shastras, study of such scriptures, reciting God's name, meditation, penance and many other such good deeds are available for anybody to pursue. People pray to me seeking a simpler way to reach God even though there are several methods such as the ones mentioned above. Set aside My blessings for those who seek a solution from Me. Think about your contribution to all those benefits you enjoy, which are provided by God, such as clean air to breath, water, fire, the sun and the moon. Whoever respects the creation of God and abides by the principles of natural laws, will have His blessings. Creation is represented by the existence of all species including the society of human beings. You do not think of them in the least, nor do you feel for them. To help them, you may not provide them any money, but at least console them with soothing words and encourage them with the confidence of your support. Your feeling of support to other beings will be taken as worship to Me. If this simple effort cannot be extended by you; what else can I do for you?
