SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE
……“Therefore, the Maha
Samadhi day of Baba simply means that on the 15th of October,
1918, He had decided to leave His mortal body, as the work
He wanted to perform with the use of the body was over. There
is enough evidence to prove that Baba had known about His
Maha Samadhi even two years before, on the day of Dussehra
in 1916, which Baba had called the day of ‘Seema Langhan’
and which means crossing the boundaries from a mortal existence
to an immortal existence. When the consent to construct the
present Samadhi Mandir at Shirdi was given by Him, He had
said that “after the Wada is completed, I will come there
to stay” Before His Maha Samadhi, Baba had sent some money
to Shamsuddin, a Saint of Aurangabad for conducting Kawali,
Mauli and Nyas, saying that the light that Allah had lighted
will be taken back by Him on 9th Muharram in 1918 which incidentally
was the 15th October, 1918. Therefore, Baba the Perfect Master,
who was a Jivan Mukta, had decided to leave His body, as His
last days and last minute actions indicate.
When the Master was with
a human body, He outwardly looked like a man but 'internally'
He was carrying on His universal divine role. But did His
divine role end when He left His body? Before leaving His
body the all merciful Sai, had clearly stated about His role
after His Maha samadhi, so that the devotees He had been protecting
and helping, do not feel like orphans. He had promised that
He will look-after His devotees even from His tomb and also
that they only will have to approach Him through their hearts
and with love to get His love and support. Today the experiences
of millions of devotees throughout India and everywhere else,
indicate that Baba’s divine activities in helping and evolving
His devotees continue with all their manifestations and glory.
Reports of thousands and thousands of devotees getting unexpected
help for temporal, mental and spiritual development are coming
from numerous places in India and the world. Experiencing
His grace, self-motivated devotees are building many Sai temples
throughout the world and carrying on various types of activities
in propagating His deeds and philosophies across the globe.
It seems as if Shri Sai without a human body is many times
more active in removing the suffering of His devotees, than
the Sai when He was with a body. Those days the number of
His devotees was much less than the number of devotees today.
The activities to spread His name have multiplied a thousand
Sadgurus as the embodiments of Divine Mercy are ever in a
state of full divine consciousness, and beyond the states
of life and death. They take a human body out of infinite
compassion for the suffering devotees. Sadguru Shri Sainath
Maharaj had taken His Maha Samadhi eighty-four years back.
But because of His Maha Kripa (infinite compassion), His love
and protection for the devotees continues.”…….
"LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI
……“Baba was watching not
only over Kaka, but over all his relatives also. One day Kaka
received a letter that his younger brother at Nagpur was ill.
Then he said to Baba, ‘I have received this letter and I am
of no service to him.’ Baba said, ‘I am of service’. Kaka
could not make out why Baba said so. But at that very moment,
at Nagpur, a sadhu came to attend upon his brother, and cured
him of his illness, and used the very words of Baba, namely,
‘I am of service’. Kaka thus found that across 1,000 miles,
Baba could see what went on and could carry out what was necessary
for his sishya’s relatives.
Dixit had such perfect
reliance on Baba that before taking any step in any important
matter, he would go to Baba and get his orders and follow
the same to the very letter, even though the course was running
counter to his own judgment and feelings or those of his friends
and relations. Baba once tested and proved his implicit obedience
while enjoying the fun of the test. B.C.S. 619 gives the account
which shows that Bade Baba, Shama, and Ayi all shrank from
assisting Baba or carrying out his order that a goat thoroughly
weak and about to die should be slaughtered with a knife at
the mosque-while Kaka Dixit alone stood the test and was bringing
down a knife over the neck of the creature in implicit obedience
to an apparently horrid command. B.C.S. 619 gives the account
Once a goat entered the mosque, old, famished and just about
Baba (to Bade Baba):-Cut
that goat with one stroke.
Bade Baba-(Looking at it with pity) How are we to kill this?
So saying, he went away
from the mosque.
Baba:-Shama, you cut
it. Fetch a knife from Radhakrishna Ayi.
(Ayi sent a knife; but
learning the purpose, recalled it.)
Shama:- I will go home
to fetch a knife. Shama went home and stayed away there.
Then Baba to H.S.D. –
‘You fetch a knife and kill it.’
H.S.D. went and fetched a knife.
H.S.D.-Baba, shall I kill it ?
H.S.D. lifted up the knife
and held it up in hesitation. Baba-What are you thinking of?
Dixit obeyed and was
bringing the knife down.
Baba - Stop.
Let the creature remain.
I will kill it myself but not at the mosque.
Then Baba carried the creature a few yards, after which it
Living In Truth
(In continuation of
the preceding part, analysis of similarities and influence
of various thoughts of Sufi School, Bhakti traditions, Baba’s
sayings has been made to draw attention of the readers towards
the path and the conduct )
The lives of Sufi Saints provide interesting examples of the
use of social traditions to propagate spiritual concepts.
The songs sung at mandirs, gurudwaras. mazaars of Sufi Shrines
propagate the concept of unity of Godhead and integration,
at a time when dissension was prevalent in myriad forms in
society, in a dialect that people could understand. Thus the
Saints led the masses in achieving harmony in society.
The Sufi School extensively utilized
prayers and music (qwaalis) in its quest for achieving the
union. Music (qwaalis) was often used in Sama (congregation
of worshippers), which often threw its listeners into raptures
inducing haal (heightened state of ecstasy) . Similarly, the
medieval Bhakti Saints of India also composed songs, prose
and lyrics in praise of God. The songs of both Sufi Saints
and Bhakti Saints narrate the various stages of the path of
God realization in a cryptic manner. The dimensions of the
same song varied, according to the ripening of the seeker.
The songs extensively sung praise of the Master / Guru (i.e.
Pir. Murshid Yaar) for the Master led the path .
As Baba says:
Guru bina suna
re sadho. ... ... guru se bichadna mera bhay hai
(Quote: Sai Charan Mein)
(Translation: The world is a meaningless place without Master’s
grace…………. To fall from his grace is my fear or leads to death)
The use of music (in Sama) by Sufi
Saints was looked down upon by the local ulemas who considered
this to be against the Islamic injunctions. It is stated that
during Sheikh Muinindin Chisti’s time as also during Sheikh
Kaki’s time, concerted efforts were made by the local ulemas
(priests) to ban music during prayers. The opponents had to
retreat after realizing the spiritual powers of Sheikh Muinindin
Chisti and Sheikh Bakhtiyar Kaki. The songs of Amir Khusro
till date are sung by Qawaals and it is not uncommon to see
the Qawaals paying respect to the Saints by performing at
their mazaar (shrine). This is similar to the Hindu tradition
of offering prayers in a musical form to various Gods / Saints.
Shri Ramakrishna Parmahansa often sang prayers in praise of
Ma Kali and often experienced Samadhi while listening to the
Shri Shirdi Sai also listened to
qawaalis, songs and prayers and watched performances of dancers
etc. as stated in Shri Sai Satcharitra thus showing the fusion
of varied schoosl of religious thought, having in common the
principle of unity of the Godhead, which is followed till
date in Shirdi. During major festivals, performers and musicians
consider it a privilege to sing / perform at Shirdi to offer
their respect to Shri Shirdi Sai.
Baba Tajudin Auliya often experienced
Samadhi after listening to qawaalis and it was not uncommon
to see musicians and dancers performing as a mark of respect
before Baba Tajuddin. The Masters remained absorbed within,
even while witnessing performances of dancers, musicians etc.
though they outwardly conducted themselves in an ordinary
Sheikh Kaki said that “Sama” should
be used only by those who can follow it. While the Saints
extensively used music as a means to offer prayers yet the
mode in hands of an unripe seeker could also be the cause
of his ruin. As Shri Ramakrishna Parmahansa stated, a larger
receptacle is able to withhold and withstand more whereas
a smaller vessel becomes turbulent easily. The Master / Guru
alone can guide the disciple. As Rumi states, whoever travels
without a guide needs two hundred years for a two day journey.
Khalil Gibran, the mystic poet of Lebanon, says that a teacher
takes you to threshold of your wisdom. The Hindu tradition
also places the Master /,”Guru” above all Gods, parents etc.
Guru Gita states that:
Guru Brahma Guru
Vishnu Guru devoh Maheshwara,
Guru Sakshat Parbrahma Tasme Shri Guruveyha Namah.
The Master provided the sheet anchor
to continue in the path, often shielding the disciple (Murid)
from the vicious flux. No wonder, the Master was the husband,
beloved, brother, confidante, God, all at once, for his pupil.
Like Guru tradition, the Master is GOD in the Sufi School.
His intercession and blessings could lift the veil of ignorance
for the child (disciple).
It is stated that Kabir Sahib told
his disciple to pray to the Lord. The disciple ardently prayed
only to find that his “Guru Kabir” was in fact the God. After
experiencing this, he narrated the same to Kabir Sahib asking
him why had he not disclosed this fact to him earlier, instead
of directing him to look for the Lord. Kabir Sahib told him
that now that he had experienced and witnessed it, he would
believe the same. It is in this context it is stated that
the Masters and God are one.
As Baba says:
“ Pita hain ishwaar
par nirakar, Aankh me in aate nahin
Nar jab naaryan ban kar aaye, to sadguru ban kar aaye.. ..
(Quote: Sai sharan me in : poem “ Sant Kripa”)
The Formless GOD manifests in the form of the Sadguru to guide.)
Stories of the disciple following the Master to the grave
also exist, as in the case of Amir Khusru. It is said that
Sheikh Amir Khusro was a favourite disciple of Sheikh Nizamudin
Auliya. Sheikh Nizamudin Auliya once remarked to Khusro “Turk,
I may tire of myself, but not of You”. Within six months of
Sheikh Nizamudin Auliya’s death, Amir Khusru too died. His
tomb is within the precincts of Sheikh Nizamudin’s dargah,
and respect is first offered at Khusro’s shrine before praying
to Sheikh Nizamudin Auliya.
The heights of spiritual powers
attained by disciples due to the grace of Master/ “Pir” can
be understood by the fact that till date “qawaals” sing the
story of spiritual powers bestowed by Sheikh Muinidinn Chisti
on Sheikh Sakhtiyar Kaki. It is a must to offer prayers at
Sheikh Kaki’s dargah first before paying obeisance to the
Sheikh Chisti, as started by Sheikh Chisti himself during
As Baba says:
kitna dayala sab kucch deeta jayye –
Na kuch mange, na kuch bole. Kripa barsata jayye….
(Quote: Sai Sharan
(Translation: The Faquir showers his wealth on his children
without asking for anything in return...)
Another dimension of this relationship
was the example set by the Master to rear a disciple - somebody
else’s child - as His own and establish him in Truth- the
loftiest pinnacle of mankind. Can this be mere logical mortal
love? Stories abound of uncanny love and devotion of a Pupil
for his Master.
It was not uncommon for the Master
to test the disciple. It is stated that Shri Ramakrishna Parmahansa
deliberately neglected and did not speak to Narendra (Shri
Vivekanada) for around two months despite which Narendra continued
to visit Shri Ramakrishna Paranmansa. During the last days
of Shri Ramakrishna Parmhansa’s illness, Shri Vivekananda,
sucked the pus out of an oozing sore of the Masters body.
Similarly Gorakhnath followed his Guru Matseyndranath dressed
as a dancer to rescue him from the clutches of a Queen (which
in fact was a mere illusion created by Guru Matseyndranath)
It is stated that Baba Farid -
a Sufi Saint whose tomb is in PakPattan (Pakistan) ---used
to prepare the hot water used for the morning bath by his
Master every day. As was the norm in the olden days, the flame
was roused from the ember of the previous day kept for this
purpose. One day, due to heavy rains and wind, Baba Farid
could not get an ember from anywhere in the countryside. Disheartened,
as he was returning to the Khankhaquah (where Masters reside
with the disciple), he noticed that the home of a well known
prostitute had the ember. Baba Farid approached her and requested
her to give him the ember. The prostitute asked for an eye
in exchange. Baba Farid immediately plucked out one of his
As was the routine, the Master
received the hot water for the bath. However, the Master,
noticing the covered face of Baba Farid, asked the reason
for this. Baba Farid replied that “Ankh aa gayi” (there’s
a problem in the eye). Master-- who is all knowing --immediately
slapped Baba Farid, and restored the eyesight of his disciple.
Similar is the love of a Master
for his Pupil. It is stated that Shri Akkalkot Maharaj during
his lifetime initiated his disciple by merely touching the
head of the Pupil and often stated: “You are mine”.
In fact, the Masters always pulled
the(ir) child from the distant shores (materialistic world)
as can be gleaned from the life history of Sufi Saints, and
other Hindu Saints like Shri Ramakrishna Parmahansa and Shri
Shirdi Sai .
Shri Ramkrishna Pramhansa often
used to cry out to Ma Kali inconsolably asking for the children
ordained to be his disciples. It is said that Kali showed
him the vision of Narendra (known as Vivekananda), Rakhal
and others who later on carried on the work of Shri Ramakrishna
Parmahansa with the blessings of Ma Sharda. Often the child
showed reluctance and indifference in the initial stages of
contact with the Master, as can be seen in the case of Swami
Vivekananda , who tested and tried Shri Ramakrishna Parmahansa
many a times before ultimately surrendering unconditionally
and lovingly to the Master.
Similarly, Shri Shirdi Sai often
stated that “I will bring my child (disciple) from beyond
the seven seas.” The love of the Master helped the disciple
to break the bondage associated with attachment and showed
the path of right conduct. The Master often prescribed strict
code of conduct / path which only a few could pass. The exercise
prescribed by the Master could be as simple as attending to
the cows to a more complex one of doing nothing. Only the
Master knew the internal state of the disciple based on which
He prescribed the medicine.
Bulleh Shah - a mystic Saint of
Punjab- went around in search of the way. His Master was then
attending to his fields -- transplanting the saplings. Bulleh
Shah fell at the feet of his Master asking for the path. His
Master stated that the path was very simple and took out a
sapling and transplanted it stating: “Utthon put, itthe la”,
(take it out from there, and plant it here. This was all that
Bulleh Shah was told and till date the mystical kafis (poems)
of Bulleh Shah guide the seekers.
Baba Tajuddin Auliya often told
his followers to remember God (Allah). He often used to say
to a seeker: “Allah allah karte” (take the name of Allah).
The Sufis kept themselves engaged in the remembrance of GOD.
. The Bhakti Saints considered and prescribed “namsamran”
(japa) as the mean to reach the goal.
Shri SaiSatcharita states that
Shri Shirdi Sai often directed the devotees to do either “namsamran”/read
a book like “Panchratni Geeta”, “Nath Bhagwat”, “Eknathi Baghwat”,
“Vishnu Sahasranam” depending upon the requirement of the
The Master showed the way by their
daily conduct. All the Saints emphasized the necessity of
daily prayers in reaching the goal while earning their livelihood.
Saint Kabir worked as a weaver.
Saint Raidas worked as a cobbler while walking on the path.
It is said that Meera offered riches to Saint Raidas, which
were refused by Raidas. In fact the work (action) itself was
a means to help the prayers and the Masters offered the(ir)
prayers as such. The Sufi Saints too allowed their disciples
to earn their livelihood by working in varying capacities
while looking within.
The Sufi Saints like the Bhakti
Saints eschewed empty ritualism and condemned the same as
devoid of any merit. Compassion, kindness, love for fellow
human beings is a sine qua non to walk on this path. An interesting
story explains this concept. A sufi mendicant once asked God
as to the number of persons (hajjis) whose prayers had been
accepted by God from the thirty odd thousand hajjis who were
then in Kabba. God replied: “None”. Stunned, the Sufi asked
God the name of the person whose prayers/ hajj had been accepted.
God replied that the person whose prayers had been accepted
could not perform the hajj (pilgrimage) despite saving the
money over the years by curtailing his essential needs; instead
he handed over the money to his neighbor on hearing that his
family was without food for days together, requesting him
to buy provisions and other items for his family and children.
Shri Sai Satcharita too states
that food should first be offered to the weak and the lame,
sick persons, guests, etc. before partaking of it. Shri Shirdi
Sai repeatedly emphasized the Oneness of all beings by stating
that HE exists in cats, dogs, pigs etc. The tenets of spiritualism
require no lengthy paraphernalia of rituals to be followed.
The shortest way to seek God is to serve others, to make others
happy and to not bother others. This, in fact, is the essence
of all religions.
While being on the path, use of
miracles is not normally encouraged, to prevent the seeker
from losing sight of the goal. The Masters led this by example.
A Sufi Saint was sitting under a leafless tree in scorching
summer, lost in contemplation. A prospective disciple approached
the Saint. The disciple by virtue of his prayers converted
the tree into one that laden with green leaves in order to
provide relief to the Master from the blazing sun. The Saint
opened his eyes and again reverted the tree to its original
condition of being leafless. The disciple again prayed and
converted it into that laden with leaves. This game went on
for some time. Exasperated, the Saint now spoke to the prospective
disciple: “Have you come here to show or to learn?" The
seeker fell at the feet of the Master learning the lesson.
The Masters though having full
command over all elements followed the laws of nature as an
act of surrender to the divine will. It was then not uncommon
to see the Masters and the disciples living in absolute simplicity
as ordinary folks while being kings in the real sense of the
word. It is not without reason that the prayers sung in praise
of Saints hence often contain the word “Rajaadhiraj”, “Maharaj”,
Shri Shirdi Sai regularly begged
the merchants in Shirdi for oil to light earthen lamps. It
was a routine that the Master had set for himself. It was
only when the merchants connived to stop giving the oil for
the earthen lamps, that Shri Shirdi Sai showed his amazing
spiritual powers, hitherto kept hidden, by converting water
into oil for lighting earthen lamps. Could an ordinary person
have gone abegging daily, despite possessing miraculous spiritual
powers within him?
An anecdote will bring this home.
A person asked a Sufi as to whether the stupendous amount
of money and riches that received daily had changed him. The
Sufi replied: If not receiving this could change him, then
he is not a Sufi.
No wonder then, the ways of the
Masters were beyond logical comprehension for they worked
in unison with the principles of the cosmos undecipherable
to the masses.
Shri Ramakrishna Parmahansa himself
stated that miracles are an illusion, which need to be shunned
to attain the goal. However the example of the Masters using
the spiritual powers to help the aggrieved / disciples too
abound. In fact there exists no contradiction in this approach
of the Masters, for the Masters are beyond the laws of nature.
Perhaps in this context the necessity of the Master becomes
more apparent. It is not uncommon to see a seeker charmed
by minor miracles and wandering astray from the path.
The Masters often instructed the
disciple to be charitable.
To quote mystic poet Khalil:
“You often say:
I would give but only to the deserving.
The trees in the orchard say not so, nor the flocks in your
They give that they may live, for to withhold is to perish.
Surely he who is worthy to receive his days and nights is
worthy of all else from you .
And he who has deserved to drink from ocean of life deserves
to fill his cup from your little stream.”
The acts of charity ought to hence
go unannounced and unacknowledged by the giver for the giver
is merely an instrument. Charity however did not mean only
sharing the generosities of life with other fellow beings
but also extended to the daily actions and extended to the
self. This perhaps was then both the simplest and the hardest
exercise at once for the pupil.
Charity towards self entailed
finding the real self while performing the worldly duties
and required charity of all sense organs despite the trappings
presented by the material domain encompassing righteous living
and conduct. The Master is a living example of the conduct.
The charity of the Master extended to include perfecting the
child and to empty him. The spirit and the body require different
treatment which the Master Knows. As Rumi says: A soul receives
from the soul that is Knowing.

My wife has been suffering
from Endometriosis since 1997 and was under treatment due
to extreme pain. We consulted doctors at Delhi, Mumbai and
Kolkata. Presently I am posted at Moradabad (UP) whereas my
family is residing at Ajmer (Raj). Suddenly in January 2005
my wife suffered severe abdominal pain and had to be admitted
to the hospital. The doctors said it was an emergency and
advised immediate surgery. When I reached there I was unable
to decide what to do. As the surgery was complicated we have
been avoiding it. Advanced technology was not available in
Ajmer. How could the surgery be done? The doctor was not allowing
us to shift her anywhere as there was danger to her life.
After passing through considerable state of indecision for
the whole day, I went to the temple of Sai Baba for his blessings
and help. Ultimately at 12.30 (midnight) I surrendered everything
to asked Shri Sai Baba and decided to get the surgery scheduled
for the next day.
In the morning when my wife was
being taken to the operation theatre I gave her Baba’s Udi,
showed her Sai Baba’s photo and asked her to leave everything
to Baba. The operation took 2-1/2 hours and was successful.
I immediately went to Baba’s temple to offer my gratitude.
When I came back my wife was conscious so I put Udi on her
forehead and told her that I had been to Baba’s temple. I
was stunned to hear what she told me! She said that before
anesthesia when she was remembering all the Gods and Sai Baba,
suddenly she opened her eyes and clearly saw Sai Baba smiling
in the big light over operation table. I was overwhelmed at
Sai Baba’s utmost kindness in taking care of everything and
ensuring the success of the operation. Everybody was surprised
at the fast post operative recovery of my wife. She got real
