FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE
Sadguru or Perfect Master or Qutab or Adept as he is called differently, is the
pivotal point in the administration of the perceptible and the imperceptible universe
around us. In fact the word ‘Qutab’, itself means pivot. Many visible
and invisible activities stretching to aeons of time are conducted by these Sadgurus
or masters working in unison with each other for the evolution of the living and
non-living aspects of Universe.
It is difficult to believe that the human civilization on this earth of our’s,
progressed exactly on the Darwinian presumptions of evolution. Modern historical
research does not have the mechanism to delve into the vital role of these Sadgurus
in changing the history of human societies in all its aspects. Some historians
have briefly touched upon this subject, but none has really undertaken any serious
research with this hypothesis or postulation that behind every temporal ruler
there is a spiritual ruler or that all major changes in this world are programmed
and got executed by the Sadgurus, directly through the rulers and indirectly through
certain unknown methods and spiritual workers.
historical research on the visible and invisible roles of the spiritual masters
or other spiritual personalities working under the command of the Sadgurus in
bringing about fundamental changes on the earth is a need of the day. In rare
cases like the effect of Sadguru Ramdas on the Maratha rule of Shivaji in India,
one gets a glimpse of the overt influence of a Sadguru on the political, social
and moral life of a society.
the effect and influence of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti of Ajmer and of Nizammuddin
Auliya of Delhi on the rulers of that time can be historically established. Even
if a scholar has access to all the available historical data on the subject, yet
a total comprehension of the role of these Sadgurus will be eluding him unless
he has learnt about the secrets of spiritual science under the guidance of a Sadguru.
I have no doubt that behind every major and sudden happening on this earth the
causative force emanates from these spiritual leaders. They programme, motivate,
organize and precipitate these happenings in order to bring in a new order by
changing the old. Changing of societal or world orders can occur only when a mighty
spiritual thrust is given by the spiritual masters towards that direction.
Moses, Christ, Prophet Mohammed or Guru Nanak did not have the spiritual power
with them, the changes they brought about and the religious orders they established
would not have happened. Behind all such important happenings like wars, peace,
change of rulers and forms of government, new discoveries and inventions in all
fields of knowledge, particularly in all streams of science, their role can be
seen. The unseen hands that write history are the hands of Sadgurus, the divine
incarnates of the age. Shri Sai Baba of Shirdi used to say that Allah i.e. God
has many officers all over. They are very powerful.
Centuries back, a western philosopher Hegel, had indicated about the movement
of what he called ‘world spirit’ or ‘nature forces’ in
precipitating major incidents like wars. However, he did not spell-out the mechanism
by which and the process through which such changes take place. Hindu spiritual
science explains these aspects in detail, which is known to a limited number of
individuals in the spiritual path. Such knowledge is imparted by the Sadgurus
to some deserving disciples only.
Avatara Mehar Baba of Pune, India authenticates that there are five Sadgurus or
Perfect Masters at any point of time on this earth. These Masters carry-on their
arduous, and majestic task of evolution of this planet, with the specific emphasis
on the human race. Besides the evolution of the human race they are also busy
in the evolution of all other living and organic aspects of nature like the plants,
may seem surprising when it is said that each of these Sadgurus or Perfect Masters
can know every detail and entire past of any person about whom either they hear,
or see, or touch or think. The entire memory of any person in any way coming into
contact with them as explained is transferred to them in the flash of a second.
Since the memories of related persons and events are in the memory of the man,
these also get transferred. ".......
Q & A
say that we are submitting our good and bad actions to Baba. At times knowing
that we are committing a wrong deed we still do so. Why can’t we stop such
our efforts if we are not able to control our negative thoughts and actions then
it could be the effect of cause or our Samskara carried forward from previous
lives. What happens spontaneously is predestined. For example, we don’t
want accidents to take place. Even then accidents do happen at times without any
mistake from our side because the laws of Karma are inevitable.
past Samskars or impressions which propel us to precipitate certain actions come
from many births and they can only be removed through a protracted period of time.
The Sadguru says that, “I have no objections even if you commit mistakes
a thousand times because I know that you will commit mistakes as you carry the
impressions and seeds of Karma through thousands of births.
I expect only sincere efforts from your side to evolve in the direction of inner
transformation through a process of self analysis and honest actions. Go on trying
as I ask you to do. Through this process you will surely evolve.” Sadguru
knows that His devotees are bound to commit mistakes. Sadgurus are the incarnations
of forgiveness, patience and peace. Therefore, their grace is necessary for evolving
out of such a situation through Shraddha and Saburi as prescribed by Shri Shirdi
Sai Baba. Through Guru Kripa, we are sure to evolve.

FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI
the 5th of December 1910, G.S. Khaparde visited Shirdi and found numerous officials,
high and low, and masses crowding to the feet of Baba. Baba was teaching people
in parables and was able to protect, for instance, police officers, such as a
head constable charged with extortion at a court, and to get them acquitted, and
was rendering great temporal and spiritual help to all and sundry. By 12th December
1910, he got permission to go away and left Shirdi. It is after that date that
the most serious time for G.S. Khaparde began.
The year 1911 was a period of trials for all extremists, as the Government had
the support of the moderates for crushing the extremists and G.S. Khaparde being
high up in the list of extremists naturally stood in the same perilous position.
Any vigorous activity of patriots sufficed to increase the severity of the policy
of repression which therefore attained Makshasic dimensions in, all Provinces.
Khaparde realised his own danger. Though he had a very lucrative and roaring practice
especially on the criminal side, part of his clientele fell.
It was feared that the man who argued as a lawyer today would tomorrow be locked
up in jail; at first as an under-trial prisoner and finally to be sent away to
the Andamans or some distant prison. His income declined and with it also his
health and the spirits of all the members of his family. But he had already known
where his Palladium or Sanctuary was.
on 6th December 1911, he arrived at Shirdi. Even at his previous visit, Baba had
said on 9-12-1910. ‘This is your house. Why should anybody fear when I am
here?’ This assurance was again given to Khaparde. But as his funds were
low, he and the members of his family who often visited Shirdi, were very anxious
that he should go back to Amraoti to resume his practice.
However clever he might be as a lawyer, he himself could not say when the Government
might pounce upon him and send him to prison. But there was one person in the
world who could say it, who had that knowledge and who could exercise his powers
to snuff out all danger from him completely. G.S. Khaparde had ample proof that
Baba had knowledge of everything that was happening everywhere and could control
the minds of everyone and control objects also including the elements. So, he
like others felt perfectly safe in Baba’s immediate presence.
Whenever he got letters or telegrams at Shirdi offering cases, the desire was
strong to get back to Amraoti. So, his sons and relations and clients came to
take him away. Shama on his behalf frequently asked Baba whether he could get
back. Sometimes Baba seemed to encourage him by giving affirmative answers. But
Baba would soon recall them and say, ‘Go tomorrow’, which was Baba’s
way of saying, do not go.
Baba wished to make perfectly certain that Khaparde would not be prosecuted. ‘My
eye of vigilant supervision is ever on those who love Me’, said Baba and
he was perpetually watching the minds of the Governor and the Home Member of the
Central Provinces government and else where; and he revealed to Mrs. Khaparde
what he did and how he watched. It is quite evident that the Government Members
were considering the prosecution of Khaparde for sedition in respect of many of
There would be no difficulty in finding matter for prosecution under 124-A, of
the Indian Penal Code, in the speeches of Khaparde or any other patriotic extremist,
for anything and everything may be easily twisted and brought under 124-A. But
the Government was noting that the sensation created in the public mind by the
trial of Lokamanya was itself a powerful impetus to the demand for Indian Independence
and, therefore, if possible, they should avoid sensational trials.
In the case of Khaparde, who came to Baba on 6th December 1911 and stayed on at
Shirdi with Baba for 3 months or more, refusing to accept cases in various courts,
rumors got abroad that Khaparde had got crazy and had been fascinated by a crazy
fakir at Shirdi, and therefore, had refused offer of cases and given up practice,
politics, society and every¬thing else, preferring the company of a fakir.
Such rumors must have reached the ears of the Government Members or made to reach
their ears by Baba, and Baba must have made them think: Let sleeping dogs lie.
That is, the
foreign government had more advantage to gain by not ordering more prosecutions
of leaders which would keep up political excitement in the country. It is this
decision among high places which was obviously denoted by Baba’s words.
It is noted in Khaparde's diary dated the 29th December 1911 as follows,
Sai Baba told my wife that the Governor came with a lance, than Sain Maharaj had
a tussle with him and drove him out; and that he finally conciliated the Governor.
G .S. Khaparde adds,
The language is highly figurative and therefore difficult to interpret.
Being too close to the trees, he could not see the forest. At this distance of
time, there is no difficulty whatever to interpret the above words. Sai Baba had
given him abhayam saying, ‘Why fear when I am here?’ and he was carrying
out his duty of protection. That protection involved the prolonged stay of Khaparde
at Shirdi, but with his extremely aggressive worldly attachment, the confinement
within Shirdi was obviously irksome to the impatient spirit of Khaparde.”……........
name shouldn’t be made prominent anywhere. They (the western world) call
me the ‘Cyclonic Hindu’ of India. But remember, I am only a Voice
without a Form.”
Master never studied Bhagvad Gita or other scripture. He did not preach or explain
anything. He left all those to us.”
were the words of a Disciple about his Master and the Master’s works executed
by him. The disciple was none other than Swami Vivekananda and the Master Shri
Voice without a Form”; what a terrific explanation of the ideal state of
somebody in service of the Master! These words would compel one to exclaim that
the ‘Cyclonic Hindu’ was the Perfect Disciple of His Master. Doing
the Master’s work with the vigor of a lion, yet not having any hint of pride
of identity; the sheer bliss of enjoying the pinnacle of the Master’s Love
and Grace and only having the traits like gratitude and selflessness in the heart,
was what Swami Vivekananda had personified to perfection.
we tread through the lives of great saints, we come across numerous examples of
varied characteristics of people surrounding the Masters. For all, the Master
is their own, in their own way and for the fulfillment of their own requirements.
But, for the Master, all the people coming to Him are only ‘Atman’
in illusion of their identity. For the Master, the requirement of all is only
one; i.e. to be free from illusion and become aware of the true identity.
Master knows everything about all and treats all in the way they ought to be treated,
depending on the factors best suited to each. Tears swell from the eyes while
reading about the numerous occasions on which the Masters undergo so much pain
and torture for the devotees. Eventually, the Master does what is best for each
of the devotees. The following incident is an apt example of the above:
a child in Shirdi suffered from bubonic plague, which was a very dangerous disease
of the time. The mother of the child went to Shri Sainath with all faith and devotion
and prayed for her child’s health. Shri Sai did not say anything. Suddenly
he just lifted his robe (Kafni) and people could see that there were four prominent
swellings of bubonic plague on His body. Then Baba said ‘see, how much do
I suffer for my devotees’.
many occasions, as we read through the lives of the great Masters, at times, devotees
compare and contrast their perception of the Master with that of the other devotees.
Here it is forgotten that though all are same for the Master, the relationship
of the devotees with the Master varies due to the reasons best known to the Master.
The following story sheds some light on this.
was a man called Dada with the great Master, Shri Neem Karoli Baba of Nainital,
who took care of Baba’s meals everyday. He used to bring food for Baba and
waited silently till Baba finished His food. Then he used to wipe clean Baba’s
face with the dhoti he wore and quietly left the place with the utensils. One
day, a very sophisticated devotee came to see Baba and was sitting in front, when
Dada came with Baba’s food. As usual he waited till Baba finished the food,
wiped Baba’s face clean with his dhoti and went away with the utensils.
The sophisticated devotee did
not like this process of cleaning Baba’s face with the dirty dhoti Dada
was wearing. The same day, he took Dada to task and admonished him for his act
of cleaning Baba’s face with such a dirty cloth. Dada listened to everything
silently and nodded.
day, while the sophisticated devotee was sitting in front of Baba, a lady offered
milk to Baba. Baba drank the milk and some of the milk spilled over Baba's face.
At the very moment, Baba called Dada and asked Dada to clean His face. When Dada
showed reluctance, Baba forcibly caught hold of Dada’s dhoti and wiped His
face and teeth clean with the same, much to the embarrassment of the sophisticated
From the above story,
it should not be inferred that Neem Karoli Baba liked to clean His face with dirty
clothes or He had any special liking for Dada’s dhoti. He was just accepting
the pure ‘Bhava’ of Dada. One can understand here that depending on
the ‘Karma’ and ‘Bhava’ of the devotees, the Master treats
them differently. But for all, the Master has only one mission, i.e. fill the
devotees with His unfathomable Love and free them from their illusion of the gross.
Jesus Christ was traveling along with His disciples, when a man came and abused
Jesus. The abusive man was so rude in his behavior that one of the disciples could
not tolerate this and asked Jesus, why He was not doing anything about it. Jesus
just smiled and said, 'what can I do? I have nothing but Love to give."
Perfect Masters are none else than the perfect personification of Love and Compassion.
So, their actions towards a specific devotee would only be the best for the devotee,
which would never be apparent with gross observation. Thus, if the devotees compare
the Master's behavior towards them, with that towards others, they squarely misjudge
the Master and undermine His unfathomable love towards them.
some devotees, again guided by the illusion of gross observation, find imperfection
in the Master. At that moment, the same happens with the Master's wish and it
is very specific to the specific devotee. Other devotees often start getting confused
in their minds after conversing with him. Numerous illustrations can be found
from the lives of Great Masters to illustrate this. The following is an apt example.
the Great Meher Baba was carrying on His mission in India, there was a man who
did not believe in Baba and used to spread blasphemy against Baba. His passion
for making Baba infamous was of such intensity that he made it a point to go to
various places just before Baba was due to visit there and spread his ideas against
Baba with utmost intensity.
after, when Baba's Center was built in Meherabad, Ahmednagar, Baba got an interesting
structure built. On each brick plate of the structure, those people's names were
engraved, who had rendered great service to Baba's mission. To the utter surprise
of all, among the names engraved, was the name of the blasphemous man. When somebody
asked Baba about this, Baba replied that unknowingly he rendered great service
to me by making people aware of my existence, wherever I visited. His words made
people curious about me. That curiosity made them accept me more easily.
the above, one can infer that behind every imperfection of the Masters, there
remains absolute perfection. So the gross observation of such imperfection by
a specific devotee should never affect the faith of others towards the Master,
as, it is based on the wish of the Master. Actually, faith is not affected; rather
the mind of the devotees is affected. Faith in itself is always pure.
after some time, the Master wishes, the confusion from the mind of the devotee
is erased and faith again takes over. Then the devotee, realizing her mistake,
again comes to the Master and like a mother, a Master can never deny His love
to a child irrespective of her behavior.
being with the Master or rendering some service, the devotee should always make
himself 'a Voice without Form'. When that happens, there is no ego and there is
no illusion of any sort. Only the Master and His words are prominent for the devotee.
There is neither any comparison or contrast, nor any stumbling faith due to the
illusion of the gross. Then the ego of the mind gradually vanishes and makes way
for unflinching love for the Master. Finally, while being guided by the Master,
the devotee gradually loses his identity and identifies himself only with the
am a single working mother looking after two children settled in Dubai. Like everyone
else I was waiting for the new year to begin, thinking it will have a new and
nice beginning for me but it was the opposite.
seemed to go right, be it something small like sending documents to any bigger
issue. In other words everything that I did went wrong and due to that my expenses
also increased and I was very tense and worried and kept on screaming and shouting
at my kids I had no control over my temper and did not do what to do.
night before sleeping I called out to Sai Baba and asked him why was this happening?
Why was everything going wrong? Why cant I control my temper? Please tell me what
is it that I am doing wrong and what I should do to correct it. With this fell
asleep. That night Sai Baba came in my dream in his usual white dress and said:
"READ THE WHOLE BOOK."
I woke up the next morning, I remembered my dream clearly but was totally confused
as to what book I had to read. I asked Sai Baba again and again what book I have
to read and this increased my uneasiness. A few days later in the evening my best
friend who is now settled in Canada stood at my door. I was shocked to see her
for she never said she was coming to Dubai. From Canada she had gone to India
to meet her family in Delhi.
she went to Shirdi and she gave me a gift that she got me from Shirdi. The gift
was 'Sai Satcharitra' along with Udi and a photo of Sai. My joy knew no bounds
as then that very moment I realised that Sai Baba had sent me the book that He
wanted me to read. On the very first Thursday that came I started reading the
Sai Satcharitra and finished it in one week and by that time all my problems got
over and my mind was peaceful. My temper is now under control.
I am not losing my senses like I used to. Since then (mid Jan) I have left all
my decision making to my Sai and I dont plan or think anything. I leave it to
Sai and if it cant be left and I need an answer then I take out chits with Yes
and NO in front of Baba's photo and do exactly as is advised in the chit. This
and one more experience left me totally besotted with Sai and therefore I thought
I should share my experience with all Baba’s devotees.

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION
Message To The Children
word “Children” immediately brings to our mind, tiny tots and children
below adolescent age. We selectively forget that we, the adults, are also Children
of God. What is true for us has then to be true for the small kids too.
message is Universal. To attain the goal of “Vasudeva Kudambakam”,
meaning the world must be a place for peace lovers belonging to one and the same
family. It is said that the birth of a human being is the most prized award; each
soul gets in response to its deeds and misdeeds in earlier lives. If that be so,
it can not be wasted away in peripheral anxieties and so called worldly pleasures,
which are invariably short-lived. We must always be looking for salvation, to
avoid re-birth and to be one with Sai forever.
guiding principles towards this end are:-
To serve humanity, and to serve with unconditional love.
(b) Partake in sufferings
of less privileged and up-lift them in their life.
(c) Always work with dedication
(d) Develop patience and “vairagya” to complete
any task undertaken.
(e) Never publicize your good deeds.
(f) Never desist
from sharing your bounties.
(g) Have unstinted faith in Him – why fear
when He is there?
(h) Aspire for everlasting peace and a place next to Him.
(i) Follow His eleven prized Do’s and Don’ts publicized in all Sai

Be happy with what you have got instead of wanting more all the time! I think
that is the primary cause of unhappiness for many. We have to stop wanting and
start enjoying what we already have. We need to learn to find happiness within.
A simple way to do that is to be thankful.
Call upon Sai in your sorrow, He
Call upon Sai in your weakness, He is Strength;
Sai when you are fearful, He is Hope;
Call upon Sai when you are lonely,
He is Love!
"I" is ego "Want" is desire
and desire and you may have....peace.
Peace, it does not mean to be in a place
where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of
those things and still be calm in your heart!
Saurabh Patelectro , Melbourne
The present moment has always been available to spiritual seekers, but as long
as you are seeking you are not available to the present moment. "Seeking"
implies that you are looking to the future for some answer, or for some achievement,
spiritual or otherwise. Everybody is in the seeking mode, seeking to add something.
other day I read somewhere that we need devotion and faith to get grace and grace
is what gives us devotion and faith. How paradoxically nice this is.
a little karma can be worked out through our own efforts; all of it can be worked
out only through grace.
can only be through 'Guru Kripa'.

Words cannot describe how Blessed I feel to learn that my experience had been
chosen for Heritage of Shirdi Sai magazine and I feel so very honoured for it
to be posted to me and kept waiting to collect it from the local Post Office.
I have many more experiences of different deities, but they are all the same from
the one and only source, we call God. Babaji is my visual guide as I see him all
the time in my bhajans, meditation and dreams. I feel very blessed!
It is really
very enlightening and also very contemporary. I find that it is passing Sai directed
information in a very subtle and modern manner which does not make many of us
(fence sitters) alienated in a very hard core religious crowd. It is colorful,
knowledgeable and also fantastically edited!
