MY MESSAGE TO MY DEVOTEES - SEVEN

MY MESSAGE TO MY DEVOTEES - SEVEN 

 

Every day the sun rises and then the night follows. The time keeps rolling by years. Half the life is lost in sleep. The remaining period of life also does not give peace of mind. Adolescence is lost playing around. Youth is spent in sensual enjoyments. At old age, diseases overcome a person. If the human birth is meant to get a robust body and plunge in physical pleasures, then there is no difference between humans and animals. There is a better destiny meant for human beings. To be a self realized soul is possible only for humans. The human body is meant to get out of the very bondage of the cycle of life and death. If life is spent causing rebirth then how could one reach self realization? For true wisdom, self realization must be the goal. Rest is all a waste of time. Time is precious. Utilizing this valuable time for acquiring spiritual wisdom and going in search of Truth is the essence of life.

GURUVAAR PRARTHNA - 16/02/2017

GURUVAAR   PRARTHNA - 16/02/2017

.

 

 

Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, we do Sai Nama Japa as it is of the highest worth and virtue, we reach the Abode Divine, we abides in the Name Divine, it cuts all attachments, it fulfills all hopes and aspirations, it alleviate all miseries, and sorrows, it redeems one and all, it solves all difficulties and problems, it is the hall mark of a true servant of the Lord, it is for the benefit of one and all. Baba, now onwards 'Om Sai Sri Sai Jaya Jaya Sai' is our taraka mantra and our lifeline. On this holy day, we start our prayers by reading Your divine guidance from Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.

 

 

 

Shirdi had become a holy place, the holiest of holies, because of Baba. Day and night there was a flow of devotees who were pious and desirous of acquiring merit.

 

 

In all the ten directions, people bore witness to the Kalpavraksha in the form of Sai, manifesting in Shirdi, through personal experience or that of others.

 

 

He regarded the rich and the poor alike and with inconceivable skill ensured the welfare of the devotees.

 

 

Oh, what a pure affectionate nature! His natural wisdom andhis extreme brotherhood (uniform treatment of all)! Blessed is the one who experienced it!

 

 

Sometimes he is silent and that itself is a long lecture on Brahman. Sometimes when he is surrounded by the devotees, he is the Supreme Energy, the cloud of happiness.

 

 

Sometimes his speech is full of deep and secret meaning. Sometimes he talks humourously; and some other times he gives up indirectness and is outspokenly angry.

 

 

Sometimes he reveals inner feelings; sometimes he is controlled; sometimes he speaks openly and bluntly – thus he preaches different things, in different ways, to different people.

 

 

Such is Sai Samartha's pattern of behaviour – beyond the powers of the mind, intellect and speech. His deeds cannot be grasped – they are unexpected, incomprehensible and sudden.

 

 

Our longing to see his face, to talk with him and hear his 'leelas' was never satisfied. Still, we were overflowing with joy.

 

 

One could count the drops of rain; tie the wind in a leather bag3; but how can one measure his powers!

 

 

 

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 - SIX

MY MESSAGE TO MY DEVOTEES - SIX

 

 

If you add one to one then you get two. This is wholly true and there is no place for argument on the same. Although this theory is true in the physical world, in the spiritual sense it is incorrect. Set aside the belief that you and I are different. I am within you and you are within Me. I reckon your physical and other needs and fulfill them. You don't forget the truth that a child in the womb of a mother gets nourished by her. In fact the mother does not take extra efforts to feed the growing child inside her womb. The mother takes food to satisfy her hunger which also reaches the child within her. Similarly always try to realize that I am within you. Do not forget My existence inside your very being. Also never forget that I am always with you. Can I ever eat without satisfying your hunger? All your external worship reaches Me within yourself. Then I get strengthened and protect you. If you are unable to do even this much then how can I Help you? Your soulful worship of Me alone is true worship. This is the truth.
