FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE 

……“The different incarnations of God and the Perfect Masters came on this earth to reveal this Ultimate Truth to the human beings through their conduct and precepts. The instances of their exemplary actions, at times bordering on miracles created a conviction about their superior powers in the minds of the devotees. Initially, it is these wonderful and unexplainable miracles that started drawing devotees towards these most powerful entities of nature. Would one like to logically understand the causes of such acts of miracles, at the end of his search, one will find that one’s limited intelligence and intellect are a poor instrument to properly appreciate such phenomena. Even if the human race has gone beyond the earth and landed on the moon, yet the question that naturally comes to mind is : What exactly has been achieved by the homosapiens in the context of the yet unconquered universes having millions and billions of solar systems? It seems like an ant moving from one pebble to another pebble on a sea shore. As the spiritual Masters have revealed from time to time, beyond the boundaries of the perceptible and imperceptible universes there lies the vastness of an infinite void or ‘Mahashunya’. Only after crossing the chains of universes, can one enter that void. In the path of spiritual journey, the first step is to cross this void and have an experience of the eternal being or primordial being or the ‘Adipurusha’ or ‘Ananta Purusha’.

Given this unimagined and unimaginable vastness of the creation of god, is it possible to comprehend or cross this vastness with the help of our very limited intellect and by the endeavors of a lifetime? A positive answer to this question will indicate that the person has not entered the path leading to the spiritual world as yet. A negative answer will indicate that he is yet to understand the potentiality of a human soul which is part of the over-soul. If one reacts to this question neither in affirmation or negation, then he is in a neutral state of mind which can simply be called a state of ‘be as it may’. This is a better state of mind than otherwise, in order to evolve in the path. If a man is in such a state of mind then who will give him a correct answer and who possibly can lead him in the path? In the ‘Satyayug’ the answers to such questions were revealed through ‘Meditation’ (Samadhi). In Tretayug through ‘Yoga’, in Dwarparayug though ‘Yagna’ and today in the Kaliyug it is being revealed through ‘Science’. However, the answer given by Science is due to a natural process of expansion of the cerebral capacities of human beings as ordained by nature. But would one like to shorten the process of his evolution and grow at a faster pace, he has to go through a certain special experimentation on himself. He has to bring into focus, one’s entire physical and mental potentialities and to combine it with his will power by increasing the will power enormously. In short, he has to put his entire energy, time, will and aspirations into a single focus of attraction. Experience with the ‘laws of human motivation’ has shown that love and not fear can create the highest motivation in a human being. If the approach to this path emanates out of devotion and love, rather than fear then the path becomes easier and takes less time.

The laws of nature are well defined, exact and operate universally. To understand these natural laws, one should have similar thought vibration and insight. All the saints on this earth had a simple, innocent and guileless personality. It is difficult, rather impossible, to evolve in the path of spiritualism purely with an intellectual and logical approach. Kabir, Nanak, Tukaram, Meera, Ravidas, Budha, Christ, Sri Sai Nath all went through this path and made people under¬stand only this path. Sri Sai Nath, inspite of being in the state of total divinity, lived with illiterate and semiliterate rural folks of Shirdi for more than sixty years. He established a tradition with these people which is today attracting millions of others from within the country and abroad. Millions of intellectuals have surrendered at his feet after getting attracted by this simplicity and truthfulness. This is so, because the soul is always in search of simplicity, peace and love. Wherever these qualities appear, they become centres of attraction. This is not the attraction of intellect but the attraction of the soul. This is not based on fear but on devotion and love.

Let us pray at the holy feet of Sri Sai Nath who is always there to help His devotees in their spiritual evolution through the easiest path he has shown.”…….

 

FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI

……“One must always remember that there are laws of one’s own being and God’s plan for all creatures. Anyone who wishes sincerely to achieve his own soul’s welfare would pause to study what his duties are and seek the help of great ones and Gurus to guide him in his path, then by surrendering himself to great ones, allow his evil vasanas to be crushed out and good vasanas to be developed, and ultimately to get both sets of vasanas which are part of one’s personality to be drowned in the contemplation of the Guru-God. This is the teaching about Karma by Sadhakas to Baba. The law of Karma is decried by people who do not understand it. Some say that Karma can never be got rid off. There is an element of truth in that statement. But the way in which it is put as above is misleading and wrong. The law of Karma is merely the law of cause and effect. To say that an effect cannot be rectified or modified is absurd. If cause A produces the effect B, it is absurd to say that B must always continue to be B and nothing can change it. Just as cause A produces effect B, cause C impinging upon B may make changes in the effect. The fact is that most acts done with a purpose are producing certain tendencies and certain other results. One should not confuse the actual result or reward earned by an act with the tendency. The tendency can and should always be met if it is an evil tendency. To say that karma is inexorable, and nothing can change it, is positively absurd. Generally people think of tendencies when putting forward that proposition and one can be positive that all tendencies may change by stimuli pro¬ducing opposite tendencies. Sinfulness is a tendency and it can always and should always be met by virtuous actions, virtuous contacts, holy readings and Satsang. As for the rewards, it is often said,

Avascyam Anubhoktavyam
Kritam karma scubha Ascubham.

that is, what one has earned as a reward or punishment for one’s act, good or evil must of necessity be endured. This is generally speaking true. But it is not true in the way in which it is baldly put. A person who commits murder is liable to be hanged. But he may also have other forms of punishment either immediately or later on. The sentences may be altered, reduced, and even completely condoned on such occasions as the King's Birthday pardons. Therefore, it is not correct to say that the reward or punishment earned by conduct is unalterable. Everything on earth is liable to change or mitigate and if we remember this, we shall be able to meet the objections sometimes raised to Sai Baba’s statement about karma. In the very opening Charters of Baba’s Charters and Sayings, we find Baba’s statement. ‘If one puts his foot on Shirdi soil his karma is abolished’. Many a man wonders whether that is possible especially in view of the dictum quoted above, Avascyam Anubhoktavyam. Baba also told Chandorkar that certain broad decisions arrived at as to the birth and death of people are treated as facts resulting from previous acts of individuals. Regarding birth of a child, death of a son¬-in-law, about which Chandorkar was anxious to make Baba work on his behalf, Baba declared that they were the result of previous karma and could not be altered. In a sense that is true. Certain births and certain deaths are all fixed by series of antecedent events, but yet Baba is able to mould these and shape these, at certain stages and modify these for the benefit of the concerned devotees. When talking to Dr. Chidambaram Pillai, Baba explained the correct doctrine. Dr. Pillai had been suffering intensely from guinea worm. He told a friend to go and report to Baba that his sufferings were intolerable and to request Baba to transfer these sufferings to some ten later births of his and leave him free from the sufferings in this janma. When this was reported to Baba, the latter sent for Pillai and told him, ‘What, you want ten janmas? What has to be endured in ten janmas can be crushed into ten days by the power of Satpurushas’. So, Baba ordered him to remain with his legs outstretched at Dwarakamayee and he told him that a crow would come and peck at his wound and cure him. In a few days, Abdul, Baba’s permanent attendant, carelessly put his foot down upon Pillai’s wound and crushed all the guinea worms out of it, merely by accident as, he Pillai, would have thought. But nothing done at the Mosque to Pillai could be considered as an accident, and Baba said that Abdul was the crow, and that no further crow was wanted to peck at Pillai’s wound. Pillai was then asked to go home, and in ten days, the entire suffering from guinea worm was cured.

In another case, that of Bhimaji, who had serious chest diseases such as asthma and tuberculosis, Baba first told Shama, ‘In bringing this thief to me what a load of responsibility you are placing on me. Baba meant that the tuberculosis and asthma from which Bhimaji suffered were the result of Bhimaji’s karma in a previous janma consisting of theft. Bhimaji felt Baba’s declaration a blow. At once he surrendered himself to Baba and said, Helper of the helpless! I am helpless. Pray show pity and grace to me. Then Baba’s tone changed, Baba told him, The Fakir is merciful, and your disease will be cured. He was suffering from the results of karma, but that could be mitigated, and so the man was sent to live and sleep in a wet verandah. Bhimaji did so. There, he had two very dreadful dreams: In one dream, he was mercilessly birched by a school master. For, in the dream he fancied he was a boy and the master was birching him. So, he felt the pain in the dream and roared out. In the second dream, it was even worse. He felt that some one was placing a stone roller and rolling it over his breast. He suffered all the horror of instant death approaching him. All the pain of a hanging sentence and whipping sentence were endured by this man in the course of one night. Baba thus changed the punishment which he had earned by his previous karma, and told him that he was thus free from karmic effects. He then recovered his health. The above instances go to show that most of our conceptions about karma are nebulous and ungrounded, and that the safest course for us to follow would be to be guided by the dicta of Satpurushas like Sai Baba.”……

“Surrender" – Path To Liberation

This whole Universe, with its varied natural forms and creations is a manifestation of the ‘Will’ of God. The universal life force behind this reality of Brahman is the positive energy – pure universal consciousness, ‘Self’ being its integral part. At the individual consciousness level therefore "He is the real Me and real You". One, however, cannot perceive Him with gross eyes. The veils of Maya form layers of illusions blocking the vision to Almighty Brahman. To attain this wisdom, one has to approach a worthy Saint: a Sadguru, who has himself, attained God vision. What cannot be achieved through reading of Vedas and other religious scriptures or hearing religious lectures, can be achieved under the blessings and guidance of such Souls. The objects of life such as Dharma, Artha and Kama are achievable by our efforts but the fourth object ‘Moksha’ can be attained only with the blessings and guidance of a Sadguru. Shri Shirdi Sai was such a Sadguru who while living in physical form, by His 'life's actions' always imparted spiritual wisdom and showed people, irrespective of caste, colour & creed, the path to spirituality and liberation. He continues to guide and bless one and all even today from His 'Samadhi' in SHIRDI.

Sai always said “We get human body as a result of merits in the past births and it is worthwhile, that with its aid, we should obtain devotion and liberation in this life." The purpose of life indeed is not to live a physical existence in this materialistic world, full of evils of passion, anger, pride, envy by man against man, generating 'negative sanskars' but to realize 'Self and 'Brahman'.

This 'Self of ours is surrounded by three basic walls of Gross, Subtle and the Casual Bodies. There are several paths to pierce these three walls before experiencing glimpses of divinity in the 'Brahmrandhra' the Seventh ‘Sahasrashar’ Chakra. The Four known paths are : 'Bhaktiyoga', 'Karamayoga', 'Jnanayoga' and 'Rajyoga'. Whatever path one may follow, it is always a lifelong process of 'surrender' and deep concentration, with all purity of mind and intense desire to realize 'Self and 'Creator' of this Universe. When the powers of mind are concentrated and turned back upon it, the mind penetrates its innermost secrets and enlightens us by revealing the real meaning of man's existence in this world. The journey to spirituality realized through any chosen medium, helps remove negative energy within a man, and transforms his Sanskars gradually with positive energy. This positive energy then radiates his ‘inner Self’ and the 'aura' around him. The inner dynamism, joy, peace and compassion emerge from this chosen path of Divinity. As this spiritual awareness expands, a Sadhak is able to see through 'Maya' and finally, the divine light which communicates to him - 'Aham Brahmasmi'. The Sadhak begins to live within the spiritual fragrance of Satya, Chita and Anand – an experience of absolute Existence, Knowledge and Bliss.

The truth and intrinsic strength in all the four paths to Self realization and realization of God, however, lay in the whole hearted "devotion and surrender” – an unconditional and unflinching faith in the existence and supremacy of Almighty. All spirituality is in fact embodied in the "Total Surrender." Bhagavad Gita expresses the same secret 'Sarva Dharman Parityajya Namakan Saranam Vraja’. It means be thou fully surrendered to His Will. All your sins will be pardoned. Holy Bible reiterates the same message. Prophet Muhammad always strolled about with His head lowered and His message was "Be surrendered".

Sai Baba is not finite or limited. He dwells in all beings from ants and insects to God Brahman. He pervades all. How beautiful one day at noon after the Arti, He gave the following advice to Anna Chinchanikar : “Remember that all what you do is known to me. I am the inner ruler of all and seated in their hearts… I am the controller the wire-puller of the show of this universe. I am the Mother-origin of all beings the harmony of the three gunas, the Creator, Preserver and Destroyer. Nothing will harm him, who turns his attention towards Me, but Maya will lash or whip him who forgets Me. All the insects, ants, the visible, movable and immovable world is My Body or Form.” By this Baba conveyed that He is infinite, omnipresent and controller of this universe. Baba also said “I feel indebted to him who surrenders himself completely to Me, and ever remembers Me, I shall repay his debt by giving him salvation.”

Once a rich gentleman came to Baba in Shirdi and asked for a ‘Quick Brahman Jnana’. To teach the lesson of Brahman, Baba made him sit in the Masjid and despite his insistence of ‘Brahman Jnana’ engaged him in some other talks. Then He called a boy and asked him to go to Nandu Marwari and get from him a hand loan of Rs. 5/-. The boy went, but returned saying that Nandu was absent and his house locked. Then Baba asked him to go to Bala grocer and get from him the said loan. Again the boy was unsuccessful. This went on twice, thrice and with the same result. The rich man had a bundle of currency notes and if he knew that Baba would return the loan, could have given that money to Baba. He, however, wanted from Baba the greatest thing in the world ‘Brahman Jnana’. The rich man, getting impatient again asked Baba about ‘Brahman Jnana’ and Baba told him that He was in fact showing him ‘Brahman Jnana’ only but unfortunately, he could not see. It is, thus, the veils of ‘Maya’ which blocks the vision to the reality of Brahman.

By above preaching Baba conveyed that for being able to realize and see Brahman one has to Surrender desires of Five Senses, Mind, Intellect and Ego. It is only by this process of renunciation/vairagya that one is able to move towards the path of self realization. As one achieves richness and strength in his inner purifications, he is able to attain ‘Brahman Jnana’. The path of ‘Self Realization’ is ‘ as hard as to tread on the edge of a razor.’ All saints have advocated that to get the knowledge (realization) of the Self, ‘Dhyana’ is necessary. If one practices it continuously, the vrittis (thoughts) will be pacified…. To realize Brahman, one could meditate either on the form or formless nature of Sai. His formless nature is knowledge incarnate, consciousness and bliss (Satta, Chitta, Anand). If one cannot do this, he/she should meditate on His form from top to toe." Hemadpant in Shri Sai Sacharitra says "Look at Baba's posture, He is sitting with his legs folded, the right leg held across the left knee…. By this posture Baba means to say, as it were if you want to see My light, be egoless and most humble and meditate on my toe through the opening between the two branches, index and middle fingers and then you will be able to see My light. This is the easiest means of attaining devotion, the ‘Moksha’ the real aim of human existence.

Our human existence will be rendered meaningless if we are unable to understand the purpose of this life and know the basic truth of human birth. Human birth is result of untold sufferings and struggles in eighty four lakh species. Human form is the most nearer form of God with inherent God like powers lying dormant in the gross body. It is awakening of these inherent super natural divine powers that a man in physical existence realizes his Godly form and merges his individual consciousness with Universal consciousness. He is one with Brahman the 'Allah Malik' as Baba used to say. The path to this sole aim of human birth is inherent in "Surrender" a ‘Total Surrender' to God Generator of Divinity. Sai is thus Generator of Divinity Look to Him and seek His blessings for ‘Moksha’.

POEM

If You Want His Answer

Whether he replies or not,
Keep calling him
Ever calling in the chamber
Of continuous prayer.

Whether he comes or not,
Believe he is ever approaching
Nearer to you
With each command of your heart’s love.

Whether he answers or not,
Keep entreating him.
Even if he makes no reply
In the way you expect,
Ever know that in some subtle way
He will respond.

In the darkness of your deepest prayers,
Know that with you he is playing
Hide-and-seek.

And in the midst of the dance of life,
Disease, and death,
If you keep calling him,
Undepressed by his seeming silence,
You will receive his answer.

DEVOTEE EXPERIENCE

I am a firm believer in Baba. My husband has been very unwell for the last two years. With Baba's grace we have been overcoming all the hurdles. My husband had to get a liver transplant and after that another surgery. Every time when I felt helpless suddenly I was given the strength by some unknown Shakti, which can be Baba only.

The last time my husband was hospitalised, the biopsy had to take place and before that I started reading Sai Sacharita with the belief that the reports will be normal. While reading suddenly a thought came to me that I should donate a little money to a really needy person. Also, I kept remembering Baba and asking him to give me Darshan in some form.

I was on my way to the hospital when I saw an old man half bend from the waist and thought that he might be a needy man. I stopped my car and went to him. The moment I gave the money to him, he looked at me and then to sky...the vibration I got at that time was exactly the same that I get when I go to the temple and stand in front of Baba’a Murti. I am sure it was Him. Well the biopsy report was okay.


We are still struggling but we know that He is there to take care of us.
Jai Sai Baba.

DEVOTEES' FORUM

Sab ka malik ek

Sab: have you ever thought what this word Sab stands for? It denotes the whole world. Baba will bless us all with his good wishes and give strength to think good, hear good and do good acts in this life.

Sai Nath is the only who will shower peace on his children every time.

Shyam Prakash Singh, New Delhi

The person who says that he is happy and peaceful out of Sai devotion can be termed as true rather than the one who says that Baba brought this and that.

Baba should not be interpreted as a wish fulfilling tree. Though Swami Vivekananda's fame and name reached globally through his extraordinary lectures and living style yet it was Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa who was hardly literate, who was instrumental in bringing the latent talents of Vivekananda to the World. Thus the best qualification for spiritual progress is to be humble and simple to the core without boasting of anything.

One can reduce his ego by doing Service to humanity
One can reduce his ego by doing Service to Guru

May Satpathyji's wonderful mission of spreading Sai Devotion prosper like anything.

Your mails have become a medium or a platform through which My Lord Shri Sai Baba communicates with me.
