FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE

……“In the 21st millennium, the play of the divine power will be manifesting progressively on a vaster scale and at a faster speed as the complexities of human civilization are on the increase. The fourth human race has crossed half way in its evolution. Now the Sadguru or the Perfect Masters are extremely busy in evolving the human capacity to higher potentials and magnitudes to bring in the fifth human race with much higher potentials.

The exploration of space, genetic engineering, discovery of sub-sub particles of an atom, unbelievable expansion of information technology, oceanic explorations, cloning of animals, spread of occultism and para normal experiments are indications towards that direction. Today the communication system is through the medium of electromagnetic waves.

Tomorrow, the fifth human race will develop the capacity to communicate through mental processes with each other. Newer and newer energy fields will be discovered and used by human beings. Ancient knowledge of Vedas, Yoga, Pyramids, Astrology, Vastu, Para- psychological experiments will increase. This is not the first time that these fields of knowledge have been to the human race on this earth. They had been imparted to earlier civilizations and in different planets and universes. The information of every thing of the past is in the sky in a subtle energy form. Only a few can explore it.

Today the human civilization is on the threshhold of a change. These Masters in different points of history and in different parts of the world had given thrust and evolved human civilizations in the past. These are the Lemurian, Atiantis, Egyptian, Roman, Aztec, Peruvian, Mohenjodaro, Aryan, Huanq-Ho civilization and many others.

During this century many lost civilizations will be discovered some of which are hidden under the Seas. In the history of time, past re-enacts as present, for the present contains the past. Even in ancient times the Sadgurus came on this earth as the Hindu Rishis like Kapila, Vasistha, Suka, Vishwamitra, Bharadwaj and Dattatreya. In other countries they came as Herrnes, Enoch and Orpheus and others.

They re-incarnated as Abraham Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Christ, Prophet Mohammad, Adi Shankara and many others in different countries and at different times. These sons of God the Almighty born in groups in different parts of the human society, taught the human race at it’s infant state it’s first lessons in sciences and arts and gave a thrust to the progress of human civilization. They descended on the Egyptian civilization and taught them Occult sciences, building of Pyramids, Geometry, Alchemy etc. Earlier they had built the Atlantis civilization, the mother of the later civilizations, which drowned in the sea. They taught architecture, design, mathematics, principles of warfare etc to the mighty Roman Empire. They built the Mohenjodaro civilization and the Aryan civilization and gave the Vedic knowledge to posterity.".........


FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI

……“ In actual life persons have various tendencies and have also the principle of variation. When a person goes on in a downward current from sin to worse sin, from crime to worse crime, some former touch with holy persons or places comes suddenly as an element of variation to interrupt the chain of worsening consequences - the chain of evil to greater evil - and thus stops him. Ajamila is one instance.

For another instance, Veerabhadappa and Basappa case may be cited. They were two persons who bowed to Baba in one janma and had bitter differences. Veerabhadrappa by reason of his greed for money with considerable power and personality was wrath with Basappa for claiming the property which came to Gowri, the wife of Veerabhadrappa. Basappa, greedy enough to get at that property, had that loathsome quality called cowardice, and lack of strength, and Veerabhadrappa vowed to drink the blood of Basappa.

Basappa sought refuge with Baba, and Baba agreed to protect him. Before the revenge was carried out both died, and Veerabhadrappa to carry out his hatred and to kill his opponent was born as a cobra; Basappa was born as a frog. The cobra was in the next janma proceeding to catch that frog, when Baba in that janma intervened and told Veerabhadrappa, ‘Cease from your hatred. Give up your attempt to harass your enemy Basappa’. Then Veerabhadrappa the snake gave up the frog. Baba said, ‘One’s evil karma will continue till one’s contact with Satpurushas saves one from further consequences'.

From hatred to murder was Veerabhadrappa's natural downfall. But Baba came in and gave him a warning. So the working of the previous evil vasanas was suddenly stopped and a new element got into Veerabhadrappa’s life, namely, self-control, giving up of hatred and these would lead to good results. So the law of karma for good persons promotes good, and for evil persons promotes evil. So, in itself the law of karma is not a matter for regret. 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 to sadhakas of Baba.

The law of karma is decried by people who do not understand it. Some say that Karma can never be got rid of. 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 it is about tendencies that one can be positive that all tendencies may change by stimuli producing opposite tendencies.

Sinfulness is a tendency and it can always and should always be met by virtuous actions, virtuous contacts, holy readings, Satsang, etc. 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 by 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 King's Birthday pardons, etc. 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 mitigation and if we remember this, we shall be very often able to meet the objections sometimes raised to Sai Baba's statement about karma. In the very opening Charters of Baba's Charters & Sayings, we find the statement of Baba. '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 inviduals.

Regarding birth of a child, death of son-in-law, etc., 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 of Dr. Chidambaram Pillai, Baba explained the correct doctrine. Dr. Pillai had intense suffering 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 disease, asthma, tuberculosis, etc., Baba first told Shama, 'Shama, in bringing this thief to me what a load of responsibility you ate placing on me!' Baba meant that the tuberculosis, asthma, etc., from which Bhimaji suffered were the result of Bhiinaji'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 thy pity and grace to me'. Then Baba's tone changed. Baba told him, 'The Fakir (God) is merciful, and your disease will be cured'. He was suffering from the results of a 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 he roared out. In the second dream, it was even worse. He felt that someone 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 punishments 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.".....

 


DEVOTEE EXPERIENCE

The following passage depicts my recent experience with Mother Sai. It was a pleasant evening in February when my cousin, my aunt and I set out for shopping. After checking a few shops we entered a garment store hoping to find the kind of T-shirt which we were looking for. We picked up the shirt chosen and when we came to cash counter for paying the bill, a strong thought rose in my mind. I felt the longing to meet ‘Sai Baba’.

The emotion was akin to a child’s longing to see his father who is away from home. Instantly I looked at the pillar standing aloft to my left and lo! What do I see? A large, garlanded portrait of Sai Baba!! For the first time I felt that He was standing just beside me. I had read in several spiritual books that God is everywhere however only on that evening did I experience this universal truth. I know that as I draft this e-mail he is quietly standing beside me inspiring the words for this draft. Dear readers if you have had such an experience then close your eyes, recall it and experience it once again.

POEM

WHY IS THERE PAIN?

I close my eyes, and my heart goes to Shirdi,
my soul is there, where my Sai eternally lives,
there in Dwarkamai, I sit at His feet,
and we speak of our journeys, and the people we meet.

Oh Sai, why is there pain, when I look all around,
it breaks my heart when I see a child starving of hunger,
and in the cold, people trying to find sleep,
in the darkest night, women looking for light,
what can I do, to make it all right.

My dear child, our world is this way, He speaks,
everyone suffers for what he has done wrong,
be it in the past or this lifetime alone,
but I am there with them, in darkness and light,
in storm and in shine, I am there all the way home.

All I ask from you, is to spare a penny,
for that starving child, for it will make your heart smile,
be generous, and pray for someone else today,
you never know where your prayer will change a life somewhere.
be happy, my child, enjoy what Malik has bestowed upon you...

I pray to him then, He Sadguru Sai, I pray for everyone today,
and help someone in need when I can, all I want to ask from You,
is the strength to have faith and patience, in my trying times,
and times when everything is all fine,
Om Sai Ram, Om Sai Ram, Om Sai ram.

ARTICLE

A DAILY PRAYER

“Fix the mind in remembering Me always, so that it will not wander elsewhere towards body, wealth and home”. Thus said Baba in Chapter 6 of the Sai Satcharitra.

Can this really be possible for an ordinary man, who has so many things on his mind? From the time he gets up to the time he sleeps, he is occupied by so many thoughts, so many activities, so many feelings…. one cannot blame him, because a normal man has to go through so many activities every day. His sole objective is to improve the lot of his family by earning well, and all of us would welcome worldly honour coming our way. In the pursuit of all this, he generally thinks that he is the doer. However if things do not happen the way we wish, we are unhappy or dissatisfied. Who is the easiest to blame for this? God!

Most people have a large number of idols and photographs in their Puja Room. Every morning, the devoted housewife commences her puja by chanting so many Mantras for each of the deities. She wants to be careful that the mantras pertaining to each of the Gods is chanted correctly, so that none of the deities is dissatisfied with her prayer.

I remember when I was a child, my grandmother and so many elders taught me many mantras to chant in the prayer room. And I used to chant them too, without of course understanding their meaning but at the same time trying to get it right. The result is that you do not concentrate on the image of God as your effort is directed towards getting the chanting right. Now I hardly remember many of the mantras so lovingly taught by my Grandmother.

I have to go reach my office in time and am always in a hurry in the morning. And where does one cut time? In the Puja Room! This means giving the least importance to God, who is supposed to get me safely through the day. Short cuts are taken while praying. Excuses? Since I had to catch the bus, because I had no time as I was reading the latest cricket controversy in the papers, I have to have a quick breakfast etc…. Finally requesting God to forgive me for a short cut prayer with a promise to make up tomorrow. This is the crux of the problem.…… We all think that we can pray with devotion tomorrow! ……

But there is a solution….

When I met Satpathyji for the first time a few years ago, I asked him how to I should pray, as I was unable to concentrate while chanting various mantras during my Puja. He said chant the name of “Sai” always, in your Puja Room, and for that matter anywhere. That should suffice.

I now realize the great meaning in this message for ordinary people like me who want to pray to God, but try to do this through chanting a lot of mantras without understanding them. But by chanting the name of Baba alone, we can concentrate on His image with love and devotion with a free mind. As Baba said, the form of the deity can then be fixed firmly in the mind. Since this does not require any effort or paraphernalia, it can be done throughout the day with His image in mind.

Baba brought me to His path as a small sparrow a few years ago, and even today, all I know is how to chant His name. I only hope that He thinks that I do it with love and devotion..

Baba's work done in Baba's way will never lack Baba's supplies! For all events make known the will of Baba!
May we all, fear not tomorrow, as Baba is already there!

Ajeet Singh, Delhi

Absolute purity or perfection is not beyond man's capacity. It is possible for him to be perfect. But to attain the zenith of truth, beauty and goodness, man has to struggle hard. He should develop deep understanding, follow hard discipline and put in ceaseless effort. Man should regard himself as a representative of divinity and not just a 'man'. It is his duty to cultivate such qualities that reflect the divine within him. He should develop these divine qualities and spread them in society. This is the best and the only suitable remedy for many of our contemporary problems.
