Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, first You give us test and then giving lessons, You forced us to appear test without any preparation, so we are clueless and blind during test. Naturally the final results are not up to the mark You set for us.Whatever the way You put on us, we humbly accept Your decision as diamond gets friction before shining, gold gets fire before glitter, so also we anticipate Your grace and blessings after the test and trials. On this holy day we start our prayers by reading your divine guidance in Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.
As soon as a being is born, he heads towards death. Therefore, if he believes that death will come at some later date then he is deceived.
One should always remember that death awaits you. This body is the fodder on which death thrives. Such are the ways of the world. Be on guard.
In the daily course of life behave with caution and you will achieve the highest objective in life without effort. Therefore, do not be lethargic in the world and do not be disinterested in making efforts.
Those who do listen to the stories of Sai with love, they will be effortlessly benefitted. Their devotion at Sai's feet will increase and they will obtain happiness and prosperity.
This collection of stories will remind those who are full of affection for Sai, of his lotus feet, at every step.
It describes that which is impossible to put into words; and that which is beyond the senses, it makes possible to enjoy. However much you may drink this nectar in the form of these stories, it is difficult to be fully satisfied.
The deeds of Saints are impossible to comprehend. Their glories are beyond description. Who is capable of fully putting them in words?
If these stories are regularly heard, Sai's image will perpetually remain before our eyes, our minds and our hearts; and we will remember him and meditate upon him day and night.
One would perceive him while waking or dreaming; while sitting, resting or eating. Wherever one goes about, either in society or in the jungle, he would seem to be walking beside him.
If thus he is with us day and night, one would be absorbed in divine contemplation; and when this happens every day, the mind will be one with the supreme energy.
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.
