Sai Experiences of Hari Pant who is childless

Sai Experiences of Hari Pant who is childless

 

There was a Brahmin of the Vasishta Gothra in Poona. His hair had whitened with age. He was rich, of the landed class. He was also of a kindly disposition. He was spiritually inclined and performed his puja regularly with all due ceremony. He was a worshipper of fire and used to daily worship it. His name was Hari Pant. His wife died suddenly. He was worried as to how he was going to do the fire worship without his wife. He did not have any children too.

 

His estate was vast. But he did not wish to marry again as he had crossed fifty years of age. "Please marry again. If you try and search for a good girl you will find one. By the dint of sincere effort one can find even God, say the Shastras," said the villagers to him. Hari Pant also was intrigued by the idea but did not make serious efforts to search for a bride for his second marriage. "To grow a crop without water, to have progeny without a wife - how are they possible," rued Hari Pant. He used to tell all who visited him, "If my prayers fructify and Baba blesses me, I will marry a girl with good qualities. Let the people laugh if they wish at me. I have crossed fifty years of age. I am not certain that I will get a child even if I marry at this age. Even them, I will definitely marry and get progeny if Baba once blesses me."

 

Once that Brahmin went to Shirdi and had the darshan of Sri Sai Baba. Baba said, "Oh Hari you are indeed a fortunate man. Marry soon. You will get a male child by the grace of that kind Almighty. Your wishes will come true. Do not doubt or hesitate. That Bholanath, the God with the trident as his weapon, that God with the moon as an ornament on his head, that Almighty is by your side protecting you." Everyone was happy at Baba's words. They said, "It is a good augury for Hari Pant that he got Baba's blessings." Hari Pant said, "If the astrologers too agree, I will marry immediately." He left for his village. The Astrologers too agreed that as per the planetary positions and his birth star the time was propitious for him to marry. He got married as Baba had instructed. By Baba's grace, even the long dead log of wood, fit only for the fire, will again bud and blossom forth. The millet has grown to knee length. If Baba's grace falls in the shape of sufficient rain and under the benign influence of a gentle wind, will the crop not give a good yield? Hari Pant, the orthodox Brahmin, gained full belief in Baba. He saluted the most powerful Baba with reverence and gratitude. Baba is a mountain of mercy. He is the full moon shining gloriously in the sky of pure knowledge. He is the wish fulfilling Chintamani, who grants whatever the devotee wishes for. By the regular remembrance of his holy feet, all dangers and troubles vanish. Do not forget Baba even in your dreams. You will obtain his grace fully. All wealth will be yours. That kind Baba will clasp us all to his heart with an embrace of pure love.

 

Who diligently reads this history of Sri Sai Baba with love, daily will be protected by the Almighty lord. This is the truth. The next chapter is very serious, grave and critical. It teaches the essence of the three types of purushartha. You will obtain all the Purushartha's by the serious reading and following of the guidelines set in that chapter. Please listen to the childlike speech of Das Ganu and kneel in reverence in front of Sri Sai Baba. All your desires will be fulfilled by that great mahatma. Das Ganu is singing this song from 'Bhakta leelamrit' giving you the details of Baba's history without seeking any personal gain. This history is holy. The sins of those who study it are destroyed. The Almighty God will always be by their side to protect and cherish them.

 

The history of Sri Sai Baba contained in "Bhakta Leelamrit" is very holy. It is the divine ambrosia. The servant of Sri Sai Baba, Das Ganu humbly requests you all to partake of the ambrosia to your hearts' content.

 

This is the end of the chapter 31 of 'Bhakta Leelamrit' written by Das Ganu Maharaj.

 

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

 

 

Baba said, "Go wherever you will, over the wide world, I am with you. My abode is in your heart and I am within you" in Sri Sai Satcharitra,

Ch. XV.

 

 

A 56 year old man had lived a clean and healthy life, and had scarcely ever fallen ill. He loved to tell people he had never ever had an injection!

 

One day, he had a problem of indigestion, and visited his doctor for treatment. After a thorough check-up, the doctor informed him that there was a possibility of a malignant growth in his abdomen, for which he would have to undergo surgery.

 

The man was stunned.

 

"How could it be?" he questioned the doctor in panic. "I only came to see you with a little indigestion, and you say I might have cancer! What will become of me?"

 

The doctor consoled him as best as he could, and assured him that the surgery would be successful.

 

That night, he had a strange dream. He stood on the bank of a vast lake. On the shore near him were a row of boats, among them a beautiful boat shaped like a rainbow. He got into the rainbow boat and started rowing it happily.

 

He dreamt that when he was halfway across the lake, dark threatening clouds began to appear, and the storm arose. The boat rocked as violent as waves lashed against it. He grew nervous and panicky.

 

Just then, in his dream, a blaze of light appeared at the opposite end of the boat. It was a beautiful form – a being of Light, as it were. It uttered the following words, "Why are you afraid? You are not alone – I am with you!"

 

He woke up from his dream, filled with new courage and optimism. He narrated the dream to his family members, who marveled at its significance.

 

A few weeks later, he was hospitalized for the surgery. As he was wheeled into the operation theatre, he was overcome by fear and panic, and the dream was quite forgotten!

 

When the operation had been successfully performed and he came into consciousness in his hospital room, a little girl stood in front of him with a little sketch which she had made for him. It was the sketch of a boat on stormy waters, a man rowing desperately, with words that formed a ray of light, "You are not alone, I am with you!"

 

Truly has it been said that dreams are the language of thought which God speak to us, sometimes!

Chapter X
 

Sai Baba's Mode of Life - His Sleeping - board - His Stay in Shirdi - His Teachings - His Humility - The Easiest Path.

Remember Him (Sai Baba) always with love, for He was engrossed in doing good to all, and always abided in His Self. To remember Him only is to solve the riddle of life and death. This is the best and easiest of Sadhanas, as it involves no expenditure. A little exertion here brings great rewards. So as long as our senses are sound, we should, minute my minute, practice this Sadhana. All other Gods are illusory; Guru is the only God. If we believe in Sad-guru's holy feet, he can change our fortune for the better. If we serve Him nicely, we get rid of our Samsar. We need not study any philosophy like the Nyaya and the Mimansa. If we make Him our Helmsman, we can easily cross over the sea of all our pains and sorrows. As we trust the helmsman in crossing rivers and seas, so we have to trust our Sadguru in getting over the ocean of worldly existence. The Sadguru looks to the intense feeling and devotion of his devotees, endows them with knowledge and eternal bliss.
In the last chapter, Baba's mendicancy, and devotees' experiences and other subjects are dealt with. Let the readers now hear, where and how Baba lived, how He slept, and how He taught etc.

Baba's Wonderful Bed-Stead

Let us first see where and how Baba slept, Mr. Nanasaheb Dengale brought, for Sai Baba, a wooden plank, amount 4 cubits in length and only a span in breath, for sleeping upon. Instead of keeping the plank on the floor and then sleeping on it, Baba tied it like a swing to the rafters of the Masjid with old shreds or rags and commenced to sleep upon it. The rags were so thin and worn out that it was a problem how they could bear or support even weight of the plank itself, let alone the weight of Baba. But somehow or other-it was Baba's sheer Leela that the worn out rags did sustain the plank, with the weight of Baba on it. On the four corners of this plank, Baba lighted panatis (earthen lamps), one at each corner, and kept them burning the whole night. It was a sight for the Gods to see Baba sitting or sleeping on this plank! It was a wonder to all, how Baba got up and down the plank. Out of curiosity, many careful observers kept watching the process of mounting and dismounting, but none succeeded. As crowds began to swell so to detect this wonderful feat, Baba one day broke the plank into pieces and threw it away. Baba had all the eight Siddhis (powers) at His command. He never practiced nor craved for them. They came to Him naturally, as a result of His perfection.

Sagun Manifestation of Brahman

Though Sai Baba looked like a man, three cubits and a half in length, still He dwelt in the hearts of all. Inwardly, he was unattached and indifferent, but outwardly, He longed for public welfare. Inwardly most disinterested, He looked outwardly full of desires, for the sake of His devotees. Inwardly an abode of peace, he looked outwardly restless. Inwardly He had the state of Brahman, outwardly He acted like a devil. Inwardly He had the state of Brahman, outwardly he acted like a devil. Inwardly He loved Adwaita (union or monism), outwardly He got entangled with the world. Sometimes He looked on all with affection, and at times He threw stones at them; sometimes He scolded them, while at times He embraced them and was calm, composed, tolerant and well-balanced. He always abided and was engrossed in the Self and was well-disposed towards His Bhaktas. He always sat on one Asan and never travelled. His 'band' was a small stick, which He always carried in His hand. He was calm, being thought-free. He never cared for wealth and fame and lived on begging. Such a life He led. He always uttered 'Allah Malik' (God the real owner). Entire and unbroken was His love for the Bhaktas. He was the mine or store-house for self-knowledge and full of Divine Bliss. Such was the Divine Form of Sai Baba, boundless, endless and undifferentiated. One principle which envelopes the whole universe, (from a stone pillar to Brahma) incarnated in Sai Baba. The really meritorious and fortunate people got this treasure-trove in their hands, while those people who not knowing the real worth of Sai Baba took or take Him to be a man, a mere human being, were and are indeed miserable.

His Stay in Shirdi and Probable Birth-date

None knew or knows the parents and exact birth-date of Sai Baba; but it can be approximately determined by His stay in Shirdi. Baba first came to Shirdi, when he was a young lad of sixteen and stayed there for three years. Then all of a sudden He disappeared for some time. After some time, He reappeared in the Nizam state near Aurangabad, and again came to Shirdi with the marriage-party of Chand Patil, when He was twenty years old. Since then, He stayed in Shirdi continuously for a period of sixty years, after which Baba took His Maha-Samadhi in the year 1918. From this we can say that the year of Baba's birth is approximately 1838 A.D.

Baba's Mission and Advice

Saint Ramadas (1608-1681) flourished in the 17th century, and fulfilled to a great extent his mission of protecting cows and Brahmins against the Yavanas (Mahomedans), but within two centuries after him, the split between the two communities -- Hindus and Mahomedans widened again, and Sai Baba came to bridge the gulf. His constant advice to all was to this effect. "Rama (the God of the Hindus) and Rahim (the God of the Mahomedans) were one and the same; there was not the slightest difference between them; then why should their devotees and quarrel among themselves? You ignorant folk, children, join hands and bring both the communities together, act sanely and thus you will gain your object of national unity. It is not good to dispute and argue. So don't argue, don't emulate others. Always consider your interest and welfare. The Lord will protect you. Yoga, sacrifice, penance, and knowledge are the means to attain God. If you do not succeed in this by any means, vain is your birth. If any one does any evil unto you, to do not retaliate. If you can do anything, do some good unto other." This in short was Sai Baba's advice to all; and this will stand in good stead both in material and spiritual matters.

Sai Baba as Sadguru

There are Gurus and Gurus. There are many so-called Gurus, who go about from house to house with cymbals and veena in their hands, and make a show of their spirtituality. They blow mantras into the ears of their disciples and extract money from them. They profess to teach piety and religion to their disciples, but are themselves impious and irreligious. Sai Baba never thought of making the least show of His worth (piety). Body-consciousness, He had none, but He had great love for the disciples. There are two kinds of Gurus (1) 'Niyat' (appointed or fixed) and (2) 'Aniyat' unappointed or general). The latter by their advice develop the good qualities in us, purify our hearts and set us on the path of salvation; but contact with the former, dispels our quality (sense of difference); and estalishes us in Unity by making us realize "Thou art that". There are various Gurus imparting to us various kinds of wordly knowledge, but he, who fixes us in our Nature (Self) and carries us beyond the ocean of worldly existence, is the Sadguru. Sai Baba was such a Sadguru. His greatness is undescribable. If anybody went to take His darshana, he, without being asked, would give every detail of his past, present and future life. He saw Divinity in all beings. Friends and foes were alike to Him. Disinterested and equal-balanced, He obliged the evil-doers. He was the same in prosperity and adversity. No doubt, ever touched Him. Though He possessed the human body, He was not in the least attached to His body or house. Though He looked embodied, He was really disembodied, i.e., free in this every life.

Blessed are the people of Shirdi, who worshipped Sai as their God. While eating, drinking, working in their backyards and fields and doing various household works, they always remembered Sai and sang His glory. They knew no other God except Sai. What to speak of the love, the sweetness of the love, of the women of Shirdi! They were quite ignorant, but their pure love inspired them to compose poems or songs in their simple rural language. Letters or learning they had none, still one can discern real poetry in their simple songs. It is not intelligence, but love, that inspires real poetry as such. Real poetry is the manifestation of true love; and this can be seen and appreciated by intelligent listeners. Collection of these folk songs is desirable and Baba willing, some fortunate devotee may undertake the task of collecting and publishing these folk-songs, either in the Sai Leela magazine or separately in a book-form.

Baba's Humility

Lord or Bhagwan is said to have six qualities, viz. (1) Fame, (2) Wealth, (3) Non-attachment, (4) Knowledge, (5) Grandeur, and (6) Generosity. Baba had all these in Him. He incarnated in flesh for the sake of the Bhaktas. Wonderful was His grace and kindness! He drew the devotees to Him, or how else one could have known Him! For the sake of His Bhaktas Baba spoke such words, as the Goddness of Speech dare not utter. Here is a specimen. Baba spoke very humbly as follows:- "Slave of slaves I am your debtor, I am satisfied at your darshan. It is a great favour that I saw your feet. I am an insect in your excreta. I consider Myself blessed thereby". What humility is this? If anybody would think that by publishing this, any disrespect is shown to Sai, we beg His pardon and to atone for this we sing and chant Baba's name.

Though Baba seemed outwardly to enjoy sense-objects, he had not the least flavour in them, nor even the consciousness of enjoying them. Though He ate, he had no taste and though He saw, He never felt any interest in what He saw. Regarding passion, He was as perfect a celibate as Hanuman. He was not attached to anything. He was pure consciousness, the resting place of desire, anger, and other feelings. In short, He was disinterested, free and perfect. A striking instance may be citied in illustration of this statement.

Nanavalli

There was in Shirdi, a very quaint and queer fellow, by name Nanavalli. He looked to Baba's work and affairs. He once approached Baba who was seated on His Gadi (seat) and asked Him to get up, as he wanted to occupy the same. Baba at once got up and left the seat, which he occupied. After sitting there awhile Nanavalli got up, and asked Baba to take His seat. Then Baba sat on the seat and Nanavalli fell at His feet, and then went away. Baba did not show the slightest displeasure in being dictated to and ousted.
This Nanavalli loved Baba so much that he breathed his last, on the thirteenth day of Baba's taking Maha-Samadhi.

The Easiest Path

Hearing the stories of the Saints and Being in their Company:
Though Sai Baba acted outwardly like an ordinary man, His actions showed extraordinary intelligence and skill. Whatever He did, was done for the good of His devotees. He never prescribed any asan, regulation of breathing or any rites to His Bhaktas, nor did He blow any mantra into their ears. He told them to leave off all cleverness and always remember "Sai" "Sai". "If you did that" He said, "all your shackles would be removed and you would be free". Sitting between five fires, sacrifices, chantings, eight-fold Yoga are possible for the Brahmins only. They are of no use to the other classes. The function of the mind is to think, it cannot remain for a minute without thinking. If you give it a Sense-object, it will think about it. If you give it to a Guru, it will think about Guru. You have heard most attentively the greatness, grandeur of Sai. This is the natural remembrance, worship and Kirtan of Sai. Hearing the stories of the Saints is not so difficult, as the other Sadhanas mentioned above. They (stories) remove all fear of this Samsar (worldly existence), and take you on to the spiritual path. So listen to these stories, meditate on them, and assimilate them. If this is done, not only the Brahmins, but women and lower clases will get pure and holy. You may do or attend to your worldy duties, but give your mind to Sai and His stories, and then, He is sure to bless you. This is the easiest path, but why do not all take to it? The reason is that without God's grace, we do not get the desire to listen to the stories of Saints. With God's grace everything is smooth and easy. Hearing the stories of the Saints is, in a way, keeping their company. The importance of the company of Saints is very great. It removes our body-consciousness and egoism, destroys completely the chain of our birth and death, cuts asunder all the knots of the heart, and takes us to God, Who is pure Consciousness. It certainly increases our non-attachment to sense-objects, and makes us quite indifferent to pleasures and pains, and leads us on the spiritual path. If you have no other Sadhana, such as uttering God's name, worship or devotion etc., but if you take refuge in them (Saints) whole-heartedly, they will carry you off safety across the ocean of wordly existence. It is for this reason that the Saint manifest themselves in this world. even sacred rivers such as the Ganges, Godavari, Krishna and Kaveri etc., which wash away the sins of the world, desire that the Saints should come to them, for a bath and purify them. Such is the grandeur of the Saints. It is on account of the store of merit in past births that we have attained the feet of Sai Baba.

We conclude this chapter with meditation on Sai's Form. He, the beautiful and handsome Sai, standing on the edge of the Masjid and distributing Udi to each and every Bhakta, with a view to his welfare. He who thinks the world as naught and Who is ever engrossed in Supreme Bliss -- before Him -- we humbly prostrate ourselves.

Bow to Shri Sai -- Peace be to all

TANTRA NINE - Verses 2649 to 2674 of 3047

 

1 DARSHAN OF GURU MONASTERY

 

2649: Gurus Have Reached Lord's Feet

 

Smoke and sound

Oblations and sacrificial offering

In worship spread;

"All these are for my Lord;"

The Gurus who thus meditate,

Who have monasteries founded,

Have verily reached Feet of Lord.

 

 

2650: Lord is in the Body

 

None the habitation the Lord has

But the body-house of Jiva;

Or has the Lord any other home?

Let them find out;

Even after having found out

That Jiva's body is Siva's home

They say, "He (Lord) is outside."

 

 

2651: Great Way of Seeking

 

Having discovered the Great Way of seeking

The flower-decked feet of Siva I reached within;

Beyond seeking is He;

Greatness indeed is where He resides;

He stood as life of the revolving world.

 

 

2652: Revelation of Lord's Abode

 

I shall reveal where He is seated;

And where His mountain is;

I shall reveal where His retreat-cave is

And where that is located;

I shall reveal where His Adharas (triple) are;

And the forest where He is

All these eight I shall reveal

To denizens of world here below.

 

 

2653: Lord is in Guru's Monastery

 

The Guru-face is Lord's pedestal

The monastery is Lord's Holy Land;

The Holy Assembly of blemishless vision

Is Lord's abode;

The heart that performs the Sixteen worships inside

Is Lord's sacred throne;

The Adharas within

Are Lord's astral cave.

 

 

2654: Lord's Abode Inside the Body

 

The Adharas six are His pedestal inward

The Sakti pervasive is His Throne

The universal God within is Siva Himself;

Thus it is,

For these who inward reflect and know.

 

 

2655: Jnanis Seek Lord Within the Light of Manifestness

 

Mayas twine envelope the body of sheaths five

When their end they reach,

The Holy Light of itself appears;

Those who seek the Truth in that Manifestness (Svarupa)

Are the Jnanis, in Silentness Exceeding.

 

 

2 DARSHAN OF JNANA GURU

 

2656: When the Holy Guru Appears

 

When the Tattvas six and thirty subdued are,

Then shall the Holy Guru appear

For you to adore;

Siva-State too will on you be conferred;

And then will well up the Bliss Ineffable.

 

 

2657: Parasivam is Beyond the Three Turiyas

 

Beyond the Turiyas Three

Is the Light Resplendent;

It is the Parasiva that pervades all;

In that Land

That knows neither contraction nor expansion

Are the Feet of Guru Holy

That, beyond speech, is.

 

 

2658: What These Body Organs are for

 

To bear Nandi's Feet, I was gifted this head;

To praise Nandi Great, I was gifted this mouth;

To vision Nandi Eternal, I was gifted these eyes;

To think of Nandi afar, I was gifted this mind.

 

 

2659: At the Thought of Guru's Form Impurities Vanish

 

At the thought of Garuda's form

The serpent's poison leaves

Its terrors lose;

Unto it,

At the thought of Guru's form

The triple Malas leave instant;

The Jiva then Siva becomes.

 

 

2660: When Jiva Becomes Siva

 

None know where the Lord resides,

To those who seek where the Lord resides

The Lord within them resides;

When they the Lord see,

Jiva becomes Siva.

 

 

2661: God is in the Silentness of Perception Beyond Three Turiyas

 

To perceive the things that appear,

To perceive the things that appear not,

That is Knowledge Higher;

To perceive the things in ways different

As in waking, dreaming and rest of states,

-These three perceptions will there be not,

In the State the Three Turiyas transcended;

There Nandi stands firm, in Silentness Exalted.

 

 

2662: Sakti is in Ajna Center

 

In the Center between the eye-brows

Is the Sphere of the Moon;

There on the flower of petals two

Is Virgin Sakti seated;

Radiant as Crystal is Her Form;

(To vision Her)

Seek you the Guru

Who all bonds sundered.

 

 

2663: Siva is in Sahasrathala (North)

 

Into heart He entered,

For the seven Worlds to rejoice;

Into earth He entered

For the heavens to support;

Into rage He entered

For the eight directions to tremble;

Into wilderness He entered

His abode in North Mountain to be.

 

 

2664: Way of Seeking Within Leads to Supreme Attainment

 

Of five sheaths is the Jiva's body;

Unto a forest is that body

Where the Jiva-bird its abode has;

If the Jiva seeks the Way of Sixteen worships

Then is Jiva's Ten attainments are.

 

 

2665: Love Lord and Sever Pasas

 

Our Holy Nandi

Once He loves, separation Knows not;

Think of His Form

And within you He melts;

Enter into His Essence

And see Him in your heart;

For those who can do this,

The seminal Karmas slumbering die;

The Ego-Consciousness forever perishes.

 

 

2666: Lord can be Reached by Earnest Seeking

 

Reach you may

Our Holy One that is Truth Perfect;

Sunder Pasas strong and away cast them;

Seek Him firm and think constant within;

Reached then shall be

The Holy One that is Dharma.

 

 

2667: Think of Him and He Thinks of You

 

Think of Him,

And He thinks of those who think of Him;

Think of Him, the radiance that is,

Of the Flower that blooms in the Divine Fount within;

Smaller than the split grain may they be,

But if firm they hold Him,

Great they shall sure be.

 

 

2668: In Seeking be not Discouraged by Initial Failures

 

When you seek to reach the Lord

And have a miss,

Take it as the work of your evil Karma in the past,

And so persevere in your devotion fervent;

You shall at last reach the Primal Lord.

 

 

2669: How Lord Enters Within

 

Thinking of Lord

Their inconstancy lost;

Uniting in Lord

Their existence lost;

In their thoughts

Their ego lost;

Thus he entered

Showing the Way Illumined.

 

 

2670: Holy Guru Shows the Light in Eye-Brow Center

 

Unto a lustrous ray of red gem

On to a green stone set

Is the Holy Guru's Jnana precept;

That ray in the eye-brow Center is;

It is the Light within the Light Resplendent.

 

 

2671: God's Form

 

As mouth, eye, body and life

The Yoga-God is;

Beyond earth, water, fire, wind and sky

Void His Form is.

 

 

2672: His Love for Sakti and His Devotees

 

Praise Him as your Pati (Lord)

In all Worlds Parasiva's writ runns;

His one half to the Great Grace lends;

The other half to His devotees gave

For their goal to reach;

He who this world fashioned.

 

 

2673: By Grace He Can Be Seen

 

He is the Lord of Heavens,

By the vast spatial glades surrounded;

Except Him we know Param (supreme) none;

Of the Celestials, Vanavas and Dhanavas,

None have seen Him ever;

Only those who received His Grace

Have seen Him forever.

 

 

2674: Grace Gives Clear Vision

 

He made Jivas renounce

That they the Lord adore;

He made them praise Him in words meek;

That He the Nandi His Grace confers;

No more the other Gods we adore;

Our vision is clear now;

We became the Object

For other Jivas to seek and worship.
