GURUVAAR PRARTHNA - 23/03/2017
Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, our life without You is incomplete, it is like a flying aircraft without pilot, riding in a moving car without a driver, it is like walking in a dense forest at night without flash light, it is like attempting to make a normal call on a cell phone without sim card, it is tasteless, it is blind, it is cruel, it is a hell on earth, it is a precursor of devastation which will lead to destruction of this world. Baba, please be with us protect us. On this holy day, we start our prayers by reading Your divine guidance from Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.
Once, a famous astrologer whose name was Nana Dengle waswith Shrimant Butti. Listen to what he said to him.
" To-day is a very inauspicious day. Some calamity is to befall you. Have courage but be very careful ".
After Dengle had said this, Bapusaheb was restless. He kept worrying all the time and time dragged heavily.
Later on, the whole group went to the Masjid at the usual time. Bapusaheb, Nana and all others went along and sat with Baba.
Immediately Baba asked Butti: "Well what does this Nana say? Does he predict your death? You have nothing to fear.
Retort to him without any hesitation. 'You can kill me if you dare to!' After this, now watch what miracle happened.
In the evening, Bapusaheb went outside to the toilet to ease himself; and, in the toilet there came a snake, at that time.
Looking at that terrible creature, Bapusaheb came out, while Lahnoo, his servant, thought of killing it with a stone.
Lahnoo tried to pick up a stone. Bapusaheb objected. He said: "Go bring a stick. It is not right to do this kind of work hastily ".
When the servant left to get the stick, the snake began to climb the wall, suddenly lost its balance and fell down. Then he crept away through a hole.
From there, it escaped and there remained no reason to kill it. The incidence reminded him of Baba's words and, as it were, the ordeal was over for both – the serpent and him.
Be it so. For him, who has by good fortune witnessed the pleasure of Sai's company, it is a source of joy forever and it is impossible to forget.
By making the devotees undergo such and similar experiences, he has attracted the hearts of his devotees; and to describe them in words, it would be always inadequate5.
