FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE
……“The conduct and preachings
of Baba in the context of the society in which he lived, indicate
that he made reason and faith inter-dependent on each other
i.e. faith cannot sustain without the highest reasoning and
no one can evolve with mere reasoning, without faith in some
force much more powerful than him. It does not matter by what
name it is called i.e. God, Allah, Brahman, Nature, spirit
For example, let us examine
a simple saying of Baba like “do not take a service
from anyone without paying for it”, when he had gone
up the roof of Radha Krishna Mayi at Shirdi. From the point
of view of spiritualism or religion this is forbidden as creative
of a negative Karma called Runa (indebtedness). Speaking from
a rational point of view one can always ask as to how a society
can sustain itself happily and progressively, if some people
work without getting paid and others enjoy at the cost of
those who work. It is such a situation, played on a larger
canvas that had brought about revolution in France and Russia,
where the French Emperor and Czar had not paid the peasants
for hundreds of years for their labour.
A critical study of Shri
Sai Satcharitra would indicate that Baba had always tried
to bring about a happy and creative amalgamation of faith
with reason. When he asked the devotees following different
faiths to accept humanitarian concepts of some other religions,
was he not pulling reason over faith? No doubt he was trying
to bring about a perfect social cohesion but what about faith
in one’s religion? On the other hand, when he had told
his devotees that to follow the Sadguru or the Master will
bring about spiritual evolution in them, was he not asking
them to stop reasoning and surrender to blind faith?
The greatness of Shri
Sai and the ever increasing relevance of his approach in the
context of today’s world, remains due to the simple
way in which Baba brought about a happy synthesis between
reason and faith in his devotees. This led to a healthy togetherness
among different groups living in Shirdi.
If this experiment is tried in the much wider context of our
world, then there can be a better tomorrow for the ever-warring,
ever-jealous, human groups existing in a state of perpetual
anxiety and confusion. Whatever be the prescription of any
religion, the fact remains that one will have faith in God
only when he has faith in Man (as a part of God) and one will
have faith in Man if he has true faith in God. It is God who
created man and gave him the knowledge that God exists, and
man used his highest reasoning called faith to perpetrate
His existence in his thought process. This interdependence
of reason and faith, as amply demonstrated by Shri Sainath
Maharaj in his conduct and precepts, is the only way to evolve
FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI
……“On religious matters, he had very little occasion
to seek Baba’s assistance. It was chiefly temporal blessings
that he got. For instance, when his son Nana had only one
son, Damia prayed to Baba at his Samadhi for a second grandson,
and a second grandson was born. Being almost wholly occupied
with worldly affairs, his consultations with Baba were only
on business and domestic matters. On one occasion, a Bombay
cotton broker told him that having a good lot of Rs. 50,000
or Rs. 60,000 with him, he could safely speculate in cotton
and get lakhs, and that too, very quickly. At once Damia wrote
to Shama to ask Baba for permission to launch on this speculation.
When the letter came to Baba, Baba said, “Damia wants
to catch at the sky. His head is wrong. He is trying to think
of lakhs. Write to him that his present position is not bad,
and ask him not to think of lakhs”. After the letter
came, Damia with great regret dropped the idea of cotton speculation,
but not finally. He thought he would directly go and meet
Baba, and then induce Baba to give the permission by offering
a share in the profits to Baba. So he went to Shirdi, and,
when massaging Baba’s legs, was thinking of his plan.
Baba at once said, ‘Damia, I am not in anything’.
That is, Baba was not going to be a partner in any speculation
or similar affair. Baba did not want money at all and, if
he wanted, speculation was not necessary for him. Prakamya
is one of the siddhis forming part of one’s divine nature.
Baba said, ‘I am God’. He also said, ‘I
have vast powers’. Baba could command large amounts
at will. But he had no necessity for wealth.
Again on another occasion,
Damia found people trading in grain. So, he wanted Baba’s
permission for himself to trade in grain. Baba said ‘No’.
He was wondering why. Because, his friends were saying that
grain prices were rising, and if grains were stored up, cent
per cent or more profit would be the yield. But Baba said,
‘Arre, you will be buying at five seers and selling
at seven seers’. For a month or two, the prices were
rising still. Baba’s prophecy seemed to be falsified.
But when Asvin came, the monsoon rains were abundant, and
everywhere the crops were excellent, and so prices fell and
the grain hoarders suffered loss. Damia discovered that Baba
had saved him from this calamity.
Damia had occasional curiosity
which prompted him to put questions. First he wanted to know
when so many were crowding at Baba whether they all got any
benefit from him. This was a mental question. Baba at once
replied, ‘Look at the mango tree in blossom. If all
flowers turn fruit, what a splendid crop it would be? But
do they? Most fall off by wind. Very few remain.’ The
second question was, “If Baba should pass away, how
helpless Damia would be”. This also was a mental question.
To this Baba answered, ‘I will be with you whenever
you think of Me and wherever you think of Me’. This
was mentioned before 1918 and is fulfilled even after 1918.
Damia says, ‘Even after Mahasamadhi He is still with
me. He is still guiding me’ in his statement made in
1936. So, he is one of the Ankita children of Baba, whom Baba
guided, corrected and helped.”……
How Shirdi Saibaba
Helped in the Smooth Passing Over of My Dear Son
The hit and run accident
and on the spot passing over of my 18 year old son on this
years’ Valentine day at a Flyover in Delhi left me in
a state of shock. In fact, when I was rushing to the hospital
after hearing about accident of my son I was sure nothing
would have happened to him. But I was totally in for a shock
when I found his body in the mortuary at AIIMS. First words
that came out of my sobbing husband were ‘Woh chala
gaya. Tere SaiBaba jhoote nikle’.
I could not believe how
could Baba do this to me as I was always so devoted to Baba
not only during crisis but even during happy times. I always
chatted with him as if I were talking to a friend. I was always
thankful and grateful to him and always felt that I must have
done something very nice in my previous birth to deserve this
kind of happiness. After looking at the lifeless body of my
dear son, I hated Baba. What was the use of so much of devotion,
belief and faith in Baba when he could not save my son’s
life. Maybe I was worshipping the wrong God. I was content
with whatever I had, I did not crave for more but still Baba
gave me this pain, which was so unbearable. Was there any
Baba at all or not? If I have to suffer for consequences of
my karma, in any case, what was the use of praying to Baba?
He could not save my son’s life. May be ‘meri
bhakti mein shakti nahin’. I don’t know what type
of devotion do you want, I asked Baba. If you do not like
my way of devotion then I will not worship Baba or anybody,
I resolved in my mind and was also vocal about it to other
Everyone coming to us
for condolences was also wondering how could somebody who
was religious, worshipped and had so much faith in Baba suffer
like this. I also asked Baba how he was feeling - ‘tumhari
badnami ho rahi hai’. In fact, I had sent a letter to
Baba on the day of this accident itself through my friend
(incidentally called Shama and a true Sai Baba devotee) who
was going to Shirdi with a request to call my husband, our
two sons and me to Shirdi. But my son passed over even before
the letter reached Shirdi. My friend got my SMS when she reached
Shirdi. She informed that this was the first time she forgot
to take sweets for Baba with her from Delhi as was her normal
practice. So she went to Samadhi mandir without sweets and
she said Baba was looking sad that day. I knew I was crying
and so was Baba.
Later on, when I was little
more composed and I reflected on the events that had happened
a few months before my son’s physical departure on 14th
Feb, 07, I could sense all the things Baba had been doing
for me. In my grief I was just not able to understand. I was
wailing all the time as to why Baba did not save him. My son
could have been hurt badly but he need not have left us forever
like this. How will I worship Baba after this? But something
in me was telling me that even Baba was shedding tears with
me. But still my faith was shaking. Shradha and Saburi were
just looking meaningless to me and I did not want to believe
in any God for it seemed useless to me now.
When I joined my duties
in office, I took out my diary where I write down some important
events of my life. The last note I had written was on 18th
Aug, 06 which caught my eye instantly. As per my note, on
the previous day i.e, 17th Aug, 06, a fibre murti of sitting
posture of Saibaba (one of the two murtis I have) which I
had been worshipping for a long time was accidentally hit
by a ball by my younger son and it fell. Even though it was
made of an unbreakable material, it broke. Baba's head was
severed from rest of the body and I was shocked. I had recorded
this in my diary note and written ‘what problem of mine
have you taken on yourself Baba’. Incidentally, my elder
son (who is no more now) went with us to the bank of the Yamuna
to drown the murti properly, while all the time I was feeling
so sorry at what had happened and kept asking for forgiveness.
As time passed, the memory of this mishap faded.
I was reminded of this
mishap only after my son departed from this earth in Feb,
07. It struck me that Baba had perhaps given extension of
life to my son by giving his head but still I was not so sure
about it. But it did make sense somehow because my son had
also succumbed to his head injuries. For the six months after
breaking of ‘murti’ both my husband and I were
spending a lot of time with our elder son without realizing
that he was to pass over soon while Baba knew this all and
the following records how he did this:
• My husband holds
a senior post in a central PSU. During Aug, 06 end, he had
some altercation with the top most level following which he
was suddenly transferred, posted and relieved immediately
to join at a remote area in central India which was not even
a family station. He left and joined there but after few days
he fell sick suddenly. He said he never ever felt sick like
• My elder son went
all alone (on his first trip) by a late night train to give
support to his sick father. One week later, both of them returned
to Delhi and my son told me not to send his papa back to that
remote station as there was no work at all for him there and
also that if he goes there he will fall sick. So in 25 years
of his service, my husband was on leave for four months and
stayed at home with his late son day and night. To give moral
support to my husband I also took leave in between and stayed
at home. All along my late son gave us moral support. He would
encourage his father to quit his government job and join some
MNC instead. Do not be scared of anyone Papa, he said.
• All efforts to
reverse these transfer orders, either politically or even
administratively, were failing and we were wondering why this
simple problem was not getting resolved. I used to pray to
Baba to do whatever was good for us and also to make us strong
enough to withstand this professional crisis. Those days my
prayers to Baba had increased manifold. All the time I was
doing ‘naam jaap’. I could not sleep properly,
so at night also, I would keep looking at Baba’s picture
in my bedroom and ask him why this was happening. My intensity
had increased so much that I could now compose and even sing
Baba’s bhajans with zeal all the time, sure that something
would work out and my husband would ultimately join his duties.
All we needed was to have Shraddha and Saburi. Baba knows
what is good for us and why He is doing this, for He only
knows the whole plan of our life while we only see our life
in bits and pieces. Our life had come to a standstill.
• Both my husband
and I were on leave, so we would go to various malls etc and
every time we would end up purchasing things for my elder
son only. His clothes, his shoes, his belt, his gloves etc.
At home I would end up cooking his favourite food etc. Obviously,
Baba had given us time to spend with our son. My son who did
not believe in God earlier began going to Gurudwaras with
full devotion on every Sunday. He even changed password of
his computer to ‘saibaba’. He visited Saibaba
temple also with us on the New Year. He said, he did that
to make me happy. He became so attached to me in last few
months that he began discussing everything under the sun with
me, his smoking, his girlfriend and his after college activities.
I was so happy at this special bond that we established with
each other during his last few months. And to think today
that Baba was behind all this.
My son became so religious,
calm, mature, helpful, compassionate and understanding in
his last months. Baba was doing all this and internally changing
all of us. He was keeping us together during the extension
of life that he gave to our son. With Baba’s blessings,
my son had developed so much of wisdom that he knew how, when
and where he would pass over. Of course, we came to know these
details only after he crossed over to the spiritual world
leaving us in tears. His favorite rock band is named ‘Nirvana’.
I have placed his small picture in the lap of Baba’s
‘murti’ in my home because I know he is in Baba’s
light now. And how do I know this. Three things happened in
the space of one month each.
1. During the mourning
period of 12 days, I was so upset that I would tell everyone
that my praying to God did not help in saving my son’s
life so I have stopped believing in God. One unknown lady
came to meet me especially in those days and told me that
though she did not know me she wanted to meet me and tell
my that my son was in a very happy and blissful state and
that I should not mourn his passing over as he had been called
to God’s home for his further higher spiritual education.
She referred to Yogananada’s Geeta and some of its extracts
that she had brought with her. I felt a bit comfortable and
when she left I saw a SaiBaba sticker on the rear glass of
her car and I thought how kind of Baba to have sent her to
2. One month after this,
when I was alone, I wept bitterly in front of Baba’s
murti and prayed from the depth of my heart. I asked Baba,
‘why did you not save my son Baba? He could have been
hurt but need not have gone. Where were you? Unless you give
me a reply to this question yourself I will not believe anyone.
I compared myself to His devotee ‘ the doubting Hari
Kanoba’ mentioned in Satcharita. Half an hour later,
my husband came and suggested that we see the SaiBaba serial
on Star plus. I said that the serial must be over and I don’t
want to see it anyway. But he insisted that we see the last
scene at least. So the TV was switched on. The scene was where
Bhagat Mahalsapati is forced by Baba to go home and when he
reaches there reluctantly, his sons dies in his arms singing
Baba’s aarti. Everybody around is surprised as to why
Baba could not save his favourite devotee's son’s life.
SaiBaba tells Mahalasapati that even Krishna, God himself,
could not save Pandavas sons. Your son was meant to be with
you for this much time only. This all ‘lena dena’
is due to our ‘rinanubandh’. Therefore, one should
not grieve. If Baba had not sent him home he would not have
been able to meet his son at the end. Similarly, Baba had
arranged circumstances in such a way that my husband spent
his leave with his son during his last six months. Not to
mention that my husband was lucky he kept away from that controversial
posting because later on various enquiries were ordered and
my husband was saved as he was on leave. Thanks to Baba.
I had a dream around one
week before my dear son passed away. In my dream, I saw pictures
of mostly all the Gods – Shiva, Krishna, Rama, Bhagawati
etc – but SaiBaba’s sitting posture statute was
lying on the floor with a white cloth all over it. Only the
forehead was partially visible so that I could recognize it
was SaiBaba. I could not understand this dream and I asked
my dear friend Shama why I could see faces of other Gods while
Baba’s face was covered with white cloth. What did this
mean? Even she could not figure out but felt that it meant
that I had blessings of Baba and that Baba is with me. However,
one week later when we went to the mortuary to identify my
son’s body, I saw a similar white cloth on his body.
Only his forehead was partially visible and as he had long
gold tinted hair, I could identify my son immediately. It
looked similar to the way I saw Baba's statute covered with
white cloth in my dream. Was Baba trying to tell me that there
was no difference between Him and my son. In fact, I started
looking up to Baba as my loving son there after. I feel that
dream was Baba’s message to me about my destiny.
3. One month after this,
while meditating in the garden, I had a beautiful vision.
I was meditating in my living room at home. Suddenly, my late
son walked in wearing a red Nike T-shirt and asked me ‘why
are you sleeping Maa’. I replied that if I opened my
eyes, he would go away. He said that he will not go away and
that I should get up. As I opened my eyes I saw him standing
there and he pointed towards, Sai Baba who was standing next
to him. I was totally choked and cried, ‘you have brought
SaiBaba for me’. Then I fell down at Baba’s feet
and thanked him so much. I could distinctly feel Baba’s
off-white thick clothes. Baba said ‘Now you can see
that your son is with me. You were unnecessarily crying’.
I thanked Baba and requested him to give my son what he wanted.
Baba asked ‘What’. I said ‘Give him Nirvana’.
Suddenly Baba produced a flame shaped bright light. My son
walked into it and spread his arms in happiness once he was
inside it and said ‘Thankyou Maa’. The vision
was over. I realized I was in garden still meditating.
Today, my husband also
believes that SaiBaba had actually given my son an extension
of life for a few months. What was predestined had to happen
and it happened ultimately. But by this vision, Baba showed
me that my son was with Him. Of course, being a mother, I
feel the pain of losing my teenage son but I am thankful to
SaiBaba for taking him in his light. I am sure that my son
has ultimately got his Sadgati, thanks to Baba. I feel blessed.
My son, you are indeed
very very lucky. Maa loves you forever.

Dependance On God
Sometimes, life's filled with disappointments,
shattered dreams which have created great pain;
There are times we have
to lose it all,
But those are the times when we can gain!
When we have learned to
and let God have control;
Then we'll have gained that which will bring,
peace and contentment to heart and soul!
We tend to want to hold
on to that
which we have always known;
It may be that we fear the thought
of having to face the future alone!
But our God will never
He's faithful and He's just;
He'll see us through the darkest night,
if in Him we will place our trust!
He is One Whom we can
and He'll never leave our side;
In Him we'll find the strength we need
when at times we are sorely tempted and tried!
When we've reached a place
where we can't seem to cope,
We want to give up, for we've lost all hope;
If we'll call on His name, He will hear our plea
And will cause all the darkness of despair to flee!

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION
Sai's Message To The Children
The 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.
Sai’s 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.
Sai’s guiding principles
towards this end are:-
(a) 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 and commitment.
(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
(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 Mandirs.
Sai’s message to
us, the Children, in nutshell is to serve, serve, serve and
serve the humanity ever.

your views on Topic of Discussion- DAKSHINA AND SAI
Chain letters or emails are received from various persons
with some message relating to Sri Shirdi Sai Babaji and the
message requires that the receiver circulate the message to
some more people for immediate benefits. In some instances,
it is warned that failure to do so will render great losses
in daily life.
This is a chain action that is performed out of desire for
benefits or fear of losses if the mail is not forwarded but
the action is not based on real Bhakti towards Baba.
It is advised that message
relating to the Baba can surely be sent but not with any kind
of illusive grants or curses. Let the real followers of Baba
worship Him as they would like.

Of The World
A group of students were
asked to list what they thought were the modern day Seven
Wonders of the World.
Though there were some
disagreements, the following received the most votes:
1. Egypt's Great Pyramids
2. Taj Mahal
3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter's Basilica
7. China's Great Wall
While gathering the votes,
the teacher noted that one student had not finished her paper
yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with
her list. The girl replied, yes, a little. I couldn't quite
make up my mind because there were so many.
The teacher said, Well,
tell us what you have, and maybe we can help.
The girl hesitated, and
I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:
1. To See
2. To Hear
3. To Touch
4. To Taste
5. To Feel
6. To Laugh
7. To Love.
The room was so quiet
you could have heard a pin drop. The things we overlook as
simple and ordinary and that we take for granted are truly
A gentle reminder that
the most precious things in life cannot be built by hand or
bought by man.

feelings about Shirdi Sai in Devotees’ Forum
A Sai Baba moorti have been placed in the Ratneshawar Mahadev
Temple, Karachi. On every Monday thousands devotees visit
the temple and pay their respects to the Sai Baba moorti.
It is my first chance
to open this site and the information has deepened my devotion
to Sai's name. I pray Sai Baba daily in the morning, and my
children too pray the same way, observe fast on every Friday
and recite songs in praise of Sai daily in the evening prayer.
For the last 30 years, in October, we hold Satsang. Sai Baba
is in our hearts and we have received Sai's help in so many
I just finished reading
Heritage of Shirdi Sai magazine and I enjoyed it, but what
I most enjoyed reading was the poems , Q and A, Experiences,
Human life, Forum and Readers' Reflection. I loved the lyrics
of: Jab dil udhas ho to...by Anitha Kandukuri Canberra. If
that is a bhajan she should let us know to what music should
we sing it. In general I like the whole magazine though there
are many things which are from the Sai Sat Charitra which
I read daily.
As it is impossible for
us, who live abroad, to find the very first issues of Devotees
experiences or Shri Sai Leela Magazine of those days and from
which many examples are mentioned in the Sai Sat Charitra,
why don't you print some of those articles for us to read
now in the 21st century. That would be nice. This is only
I first got to know about
Sai when I saw his film in the 1970s or 80s and I was only
a teenager then, and then I had the chance to come to India
in July 1983 but didn't have much knowledge about Sai except
for the film I had seen. Knowing nobody and nothing about
India I asked my sister-in.law's cousin if there was a Sai
Baba mandir in Bombay to visit, and he asked me if I wanted
to go to Shirdi. I was overwhelmed with joy and accepted.
We took a bus at 10pm, travelled all night and reached Shirdi
at 5 or 6 am. We took a room in one of the hotels but I was
so nervous that I couldn't sleep so I had a bath and went
to the mandir. I don't know what mandir it was or what places
I should have visited, I just followed the crowd. So wasn't
able to see much nor to get vibuti or prasad. Now I am recovering
from a breast cancer and wish to come to Shirdi and thank
Sai as he has taken me through the whole process of operation,
chemo and radio therapy without letting me break down and
gave me strength to go on. This time I've read a lot about
Shirdi and all the places I must see. I am just waiting for
Sai's bulava to go there.
There are still many words and names of prayers mentioned
in the devotees experiences that I don't understand neither
do I know how to do it so I pray in my own way. I hope Sai
will forgive me if I'm doing anything wrong.
