GURUVAAR PRARTHNA - 02/02/2017
Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, in You we trust, in You we surrender. This is the attitude we wish to follow. In this way, we are freed from fear of the future and are saved much needless suffering. It is Universal law that the future is not in our hands, more over we may not have a future at all. Or, when it actually comes, it may be so-different from what we imagine it to be. The future has been concealed from us by Loving Providence. Why probe into what God chooses to hide from us? To do so is to invite suffering. For, bitter is the fruit of man's wisdom. Let us trust without seeing. Let us live without trying to unveil that which has been veiled to our sight. Let us build our life in the words revealed by You, "Why are you anxious? I take all care of you." On this holy day, we start our prayers by reading Your divine guidance from Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.
Hail Sadguru, the cloud of happiness! The Incarnation of Supreme Knowledge and Holiest of the Holies! Hail to thee the Remover of the Fears of this world and the Destroyer of the sins of Kaliyug by burning them.
You are the ocean of bliss on which waves of different emotions are formed. You, yourself, are in control of them. Bless your devotees.
The illusory snake of the semi-darkness becomes a rope in daylight. Both the semi-darkness and the daylight are your creation.
You are the one who gives birth to the notion of the existence of a serpent; and you are the one to change that form into a rope. You are the creator of the fear and you are the one who removes that fear in the end.
In the very beginning of time, when there is complete darkness, there is neither a serpent nor a rope and there is no scope of any notion of any kind, even that state of formlessness is only you.
Later on, when the formlessness develops into a form in the semi-light, it gives the false notion of a snake. That also is created by you only.
This concept of appearance and non-appearance is the manifestation of the sport of your changing moods. Your real nature is free of both – existence and non-existence. Thus, nobody can fathom you.
The Shrutis are silent about this. Even Sesh (the legendary serpent), with his thousand tongues, found them inadequate. Who am I then to understand it?
Baba! nothing else pleases me than your darshan. I feel that I should keep your form in front of my eyes all the time, and meditate on it.
You are the incarnation of pure knowledge. To achieve the goal of happiness, there is no other path to us than to be at your feet.
Oh, how pleasing is your familiar posture when you are on your seat! Many devotees come to take your darshan, bow down their heads at your feet, gathering in their own happiness, lovingly.
I bow down to Sree Ganesh

I bow down to Sree Sita-Ramachandra
I bow down to Sree Sadguru Sainath.
