GURUVAAR PRARTHNA - 23/02/2017
Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, please keep us away from the world of competition, everywhere unhealthy inhuman competition prevailing. We become the slaves of competition and end up becoming a fool, end up in a mental institution, influencing overspending and invite debts, breeding discontentment, and finally lead to disaster, divorce, depression, gambling, crime, unhappiness and for all miseries and evils. Baba, please remove this word from the life of mankind and help us to lead a life of peace, peace Supreme and Eternal peace. On this holy day, we start our prayers by reading Your divine guidance from Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.
Now listen quietly to the story, further on, about how much Sai cared for the safety of his devotees and also about how he warded off their insurmountable difficulties;
and how he would forecast the difficulties to befall his devotees and give timely fortitude to them, rescue them and give refuge at his feet. Thus he was always ready to act for their welfare.
An episode which will illustrate what is said above follows, which will please you who are keen to hear it. It will give joy of being in the company of Sai and strengthen the faith of the devotees.
It matters not how fallen, deprived or ignorant a man is. If he develops love for listening to the stories of Sai and chants his name continuously, Sai will take him across the ocean of existence.
Kakasaheb Mirikar, who hailed from Ahmednagar, had been bestowed the title of 'Sardar' by the Government, as it was pleased with him.
His son was a conscientious worker and Mamlatdar of Kopergaon. While he was on an official tour of Chithali, he came to Shirdi to have darshan.
He went and sat in the Masjid, and bowed down at Baba'sfeet. They chatted, making formal inquiries about health and general welfare.
A large group was present there, including Madhav Rao. Savour now the nectar of the wonderful story with rapt attention.
How the future difficulties were forecast; how he took measures to avoid them; how he protected the devotees – all these deeds of Baba are indeed amazing!
