FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE

SIGNIFICANCE OF NAVARATRI

……“The ten days are the development of the Primordial energy form of Shakti. On each day its potentiality and functional attributes increase. On the last day it becomes Durga - the highest form of power or the Shakti of Parameswar. Thereafter, creation proceeds at a faster pace after evil forces restricting the evolution are destroyed.

Some body should explain this to devotees on these days so that they understand the significance of the deity and their roles. This can be done on the 8th day that is Ashtami. The Pooja of Gayatri Mata should be done separately in accordance with this principle, as Gayatri is the mother of Bramha, Vishnu, and Maheshwar - all in one.

If Devi mantra is not known then Gayatri Mantra will do and should be recited on the 8th day.
Gayatri Yagnam should be conducted in the temple.

Devotees should avoid negative thoughts and negative actions during the period.
They should speak as little as possible and desist from physical contacts.

They should do as much charity as possible in terms of feeding the poor, helping the needy and serving the sick.

In the temple, Naam Japa, Bhandara etc are good actions.”…….


FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI

……“Once Kondaji’s (a Marwadi) stack of hay took fire. Baba tried to prevent it by sending him to go and look at it. But he returned without seeing it properly, and then said there was no fire. Then Baba pointed out to the smoke issuing from the stack. He then ran up and found that the whole thing had been reduced to ashes. People in the neighbourhood, with neighbouring stacks, were all afraid that the brisk breeze that was blowing would set their stacks also on fire. Baba then came up, and going round Kondaji’s stack, drew a line of water round it, and said; ‘Only this stack will be burnt’. Kondaji, however, was very sorry that he had lost his property. Then Baba said, ‘How stupid is this? The marwadi talks of himself as his body, that is, the form made up of flesh, bones etc. Hay is something totally different. What has he to do with the stack or the stack to do with him? Hallo, Marwadi, you better make up for this loss in some other transaction’. Thus, Baba gave him some practical advice to get over his grief, and at the same time pointed out that philosophically speaking, there was no basis for the notion of either ‘I’ or ‘Mine’. It is ruinous for any soul that desires its true welfare to go on dwelling over and over again upon ‘I’ and ‘Mine’. When he thinks of the ‘I’ it does not get to the real inwardness of the ‘I’. On the other hand, it centres its emphasis on everything unimportant. For instance, if you ask a boy whom you meet, ‘Who are you?’ you may get ten different answers, such as, ‘I am a boy, I am named Rama, I am the son of Krishna, I am a Hindu, I am aged 16, I am a boy attending St. Peter’s School’, etc. That is, every one of these things is not he, but it is an accident attached to him which he mentions as he. What is the central core round which all these accidents gather? That he does not know. Philosophers might say, ‘There is a piece of Chaitanya or Pure Consciousness which, however, changes its purity and gets attached to some external body, and then a particularity comes into it, namely, a red haired youth. So, the ‘I’ becomes a red haired youth. Thus we develop various notions of I, which stricty speaking are not true, and which do not help us in the ultimate goal that we have to reach, however useful some of them may be for our progress in our material circumstances. Therefore, Baba tried to rebuke this egotism especially when it showed itself in offensive forms. Abhimana means overfondness of dwelling on this particularity you call ‘I’ connected. with the body, and it also comes in relation to property, Therefore, the most important thing to be attained in the case of a sadhaka is to lessen and remove this abhimana to dissociate himself from the body idea. ‘I’ and ‘mine’ represent the body idea.”……


DEVOTEE EXPERIENCE

Baba’s protection: Right from pregnancy thru safe delivery and more…..

“If you spread your palms with devotion before Me, I am immediately with you, day and night. Though I am here bodily, still I know what you do; beyond seven seas. Go wherever you will, over the wide world. I am with you. My abode is in your heart and I am within you. Always worship Me, who is seated in your heart, as well as, in the hearts all beings. Blessed and fortunate, indeed, is he who knows Me thus.”

-Satcharitra chapter 15. Baba imparted beautiful and important lesson to Mr. Cholkar in chapter 15.

I bow to Shri Sainath and pray for his blessings to share this leela.

It was August, 2001. My wife conceived and was due for her first check-up after 8 weeks. We went to the clinic as scheduled and scanning was done. The Technician broke the news that he couldn’t find the embryo in his scan and neither the heart beat. We were shocked and earth under my feet started shaking and the room seemed to be revolving (as shown in the movies) and I kind of collapsed onto a nearby chair/table. After couple of minutes I recovered and asked the technician “Is there any possibility or hope?” As I was present in the scanning room during the scanning, I saw the multiple efforts made by the technician to find the embryo before breaking the news to us. He felt the situation was hopeless. Later, a nurse tried to comfort us. I asked the same question again and again: “Is there any chance?” She told us that there was no chance and told my wife that in the next few days she would have an abortion and gave her empty (small) cups to retain some of it for further test/research. I asked her again “Is there any hope?” She replied, you can always have “hope” but again said that abortion can be any time in next couple of days and told us to retain some of it. I asked her what if abortion does not happen in next one week? She said come back to us for more tests, but stressed again that abortion will happen in two or three days.

We returned home, were very saddened and kept on praying to Baba. The father of a friend (who is also my neighbour) aged 68/70 years and a very devout person, (who also did la ot of research on Ramayan, Mahabharata) was in town. And upon learning about our test results, he gave us a slokam from Mahabaratha – which was sung by Draupadi during the Vastra-apaharana episode, begging Krishna to rush to her rescue. We received the “slokam” as Baba’s prasadam and prayed to Baba and SaiKrishna. I stood in front of Sai Baba (who is my Krishna) and chanted the slokam. Baba’s namam audio cassette was played from morning 6 am to 10 pm continuously everyday and night. Days passed but the abortion did not occur. The good sign was my wife continued the pregnancy symptoms. These gave us hope, and went on praying day and night to Baba, literally day and night. My home was like Baba’s temple and Baba’s songs were played all the time for next seven days.

After one week, we went to the clinic for re-tests. This time during the scanning, we heard the baby’s heart beat loud and clear. Our joy knew no bounds. The technician was shocked. It took a few minutes for him to apologize to us. He said he had never seen this kind of incident in his life. After the examination the nurse came running to us and apologized and hugged my wife. She was very happy to know the news, but at the same time she was very apologetic. It seemed she was very worried that we may file a case or sue her. She hugged my wife five times during the check-up and walked us to the exit doors when we were leaving. She said in her 15-20 years of service, she never had seen this kind of incident. We knew in our hearts that this was Baba’s Miracle. Nothing is impossible in Baba’s giving and protection. As we read in Satcharitra, Baba said many times “My Mission is to give Blessings”.

Months passed and we were praying sincerely with joy filled hearts, and remembering Baba’s miracle every day for those nine months. None of our parents or in-laws could come to help us with the delivery. My wife’s first delivery was a C-section back in India. She was worried that if this too was going to be a c-section it would be tough for us to take care the baby if she had to take bed-rest due to the surgery. At the same time she was also worried about going through the intense pains of a normal delivery. As we all know, nothing is in our hands. All we can do is pray to Baba and leave everything to him. Baba’s songs/namam were played every day and night at home for all those nine months. We felt our home was a Sai Mandir for those nine months, as Sai music played all the time, day and night.

Nine months passed, on delivery day early morning at 3 am, Padmaja was getting delivery pains. We went to the hospital to check-in. Surprisingly, after being admitted, the time-gap between the strokes went from 5 minutes to 10 minutes and also her body status was not meeting the requirements for admission. So we were told to go back, and the nurse’s attitude was not at all friendly. We were really depressed with her attitude, and were sent back home. The distance from our home to hospital was a 30 minute drive. But see Baba’s miracle. After we reached home, she got back the delivery-pains. But we hesitated to go to the hospital as we were concerned that she may be sent back again. We were continuously in touch with doctor over phone (being Sunday), and at 11am or so the time-gap between pains went down to 3mins/2mins from 5mins. Finally, we started for the hospital at 4:30 pm. Padmaja had to control herself a lot in the car. She was having heavy pains but she was scared that I may not be able to drive properly if I heard her screaming. We prayed to Baba on the way that she should be admitted. As soon as we reached the hospital, a nurse saw her as she was walking to the reception and rushed her straight to the delivery room without any formal admission formalities and tests. The nurse checked her in the delivery room and told us it’s 9.5 cm open. Doctor was paged, and in next 30 minutes Padmaja delivered the baby while listening to the audio of Baba’s Namam. See Baba’s miracle here. If my wife had admitted to the hospital in morning, she would never have been able to bear the pains. Baba knows what’s best. He kept her at home, and at home we didn’t know the progress, so even though she had severe pains at home, she bore them thinking this is just the beginning. Baba gave her the strength to go through the pains. Baba redirected her attention from delivery-tension to admission-tension. Even if one observes the timing, we went to the hospital right at the nick of the time and not an hour early, not an hour later. We reached the hospital at 5:30 pm and were ready for the delivery and were sent straight into the delivery room. Later I came to know that while we were driving to the hospital, our Baba (in the form of the Doctor) called the hospital to be ready to receive us. So when we reached the hospital, they had the patient’s records and doctor’s details ready. Baba made sure that it was a safe and natural delivery.

On the 3rd day of the delivery we were discharged. At the time of discharging us, the visiting Doctor checked the baby and said everything was fine and we could leave. Fortunately, by Baba’s grace my son urinated while the tests were being done and there was a need to change his clothes. While the nurse was changing Sai’s (my son) clothes, Doctor observed some thing different in his skin and ordered them to do the tests for Jaundice and told us take the child for a check-up the following day. We were discharged.

Next day, we took him to the clinic and learnt that the Jaundice test results were 20 (or more). We rushed to the Children’s hospital for emergency as per the advice, and admitted the baby for the treatment. It was 4th day of delivery and we are back to stay at the hospital. The mother had to feed the baby every 30 minutes, as that would help the child get rid of Jaundice. It was very hectic for the two of us, and we were in panic. By midnight the tests showed that the Jaundice had gone down by one point or two. This was a very good sign as the trend was expected to continue. We stayed in the hospital for two nights and then went back home, with equipment (brief-case and blanket) for further treatment at home. The nurse came home every day for a couple of days to check on progress. And with Baba’s grace Sai recovered soon. It was Baba’s grace that my son urinated in the main hospital, which caused doctor to check on Jaundice other-wise we would found out about it at a very late stage, as we did not have much experience of jaundice etc. It would be very tough find out about the disease as we live in an apartment where you don’t have much light, and there were no older persons at home to check on such things. Baba helped us to get through our troubles and protected us at every stage.

Baba! Oh our dear lord! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Whenever I see my son, I remember it’s Baba’s blessings.

Bow to Sri Sai, Peace be to all.

POEM

Pearls Of Divinity

A child craves for its mother,
A mother craves for her child.
Between them both is a bond of love
That thee Lord has bestowed upon them!

Like a child I too crave.
Seeking a glimpse of thee,
Each second ticks away,
Minutes have passed by,
Hours have turned into days.
Weeks to months,
Months to years,
And I have waited patiently.

Slowly but surely I was melting away
Burning inside the flame of grief,
Flickering with curiosity
Why?

Not so long I hear a voice calling upon me, I look up to thee.
Sparkles of sunlight pouring down
Thou smile is what I see.
With a shower of white pearls of divinity!

That now, I do realize
Thou are most luminous, pure and adorable!
Guiding my intellect in the right direction, That Thou art within me

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION

Sai's Message To The Children

Peter USTINOV the famous, actor, writer and dramatist once said "Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of." It is through children that we keep our culture, values, ancestary alive, provided they have been taught the right values, importance of culture and right conduct as children. The responsibility of shaping the future lies in the hands of adults. Sadly the modern age and automated culture has pushed man away from his rich cultural heritage, tradition and values and replaced them by antagonism, greed and selfishness. As adults we set a bad example of a role model for children who in turn emulate us, which makes the future seem bleak. As some said “One hundered years from now it will not matter what kind of car I drove what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in my bank account, or what my clothes looked like. But one hundred years from now, the world may be a little better because I was important in the life of a child”. We have to make an effort to right the wrong done by our actions and to give a better life to our children. The way to the right path is through spiritualism.

Spiritualism is the path through which man can change his behaviour and restore the lost culture. Sai Satcharita is one such scripture, which captures life and teachings of Shirdi Sai Baba, and this has great significance for all Shirdi Sai followers. Baba's teachings are for His children, when they feel lost, and without hope, it is Baba's own words for young and old alike. Let us reflect on what Baba taught us through His life.

Baba was an epitome of love. He loved people regardless of whether they were millionaires or poor beggars or animals. He saw divinity in all. His life showed us that - It is love alone that matters. He shared food with the cleaning lady, dogs and birds alike. His durbar was always open for His children.

Baba discouraged laziness. His daily routine is an example of being active. He went around Shirdi. He watered the garden in Lendi. He always had time for His children in despair. Always had a word of love and encouragement on His lips for those who went to see Him. He urged people to work hard and look after their welfare and be righteous.

He advocated unity and harmony among various religions and urged them to live like brothers. He said all religions lead to one goal and they are mere paths to reach that goal. He never asked people to change their religion or their practices. He discouraged superstition and orthodoxy. He said we should not discriminate against others based on their caste and class. Baba said people came to us because of our previous relationship with them.

Baba’s humility is remarkable. Baba taught us how to serve Guru by His own example where He served the Psuedo guru Javahar Ali who claimed he was learned and called Baba his student. Baba served him with humility and did all the duties for Javahar Ali even though Baba was a gyani and Parabramah Himself. He showed us that falsehood has a very short life. Patience and humility will win ultimately.

Baba taught us that nothing matters but the words of Guru. He said one ought to trust and believe in Guru as He is the guide in our life and takes us to our destination. He likened Guru to mother tortoise who showers her love on the children even though they are far away from her, her loving glance nurtures them.

Baba taught us to share. He asked residents of Shirdi to host visitors in their house. He also showed the importance of charity. Baba used to give money to the needy. He showed us that by giving charity we develop dispassion towards things. This is the best way to get rid of greed.

Baba encouraged repetition of God’s name. He asked people to trust in God and sing His glories always and said God will take care of all our needs and come to our aid in times of need.

Baba discouraged arguments and challenges. He tackled all the problems in a pleasing manner and taught people to increase their level of tolerance. He said faith and patience were two pillars and when one has cultivated these two virtues then success was definite.

Through Baba's life one learns that – whoever be it, man or Saint, once taken birth on this earth they are sure to leave this material body and world after their work is fulfilled on this earth. Hence one should not give too much of attachment to the material world. All material things should be used to gain spiritual objective in life and not to develop attachment to it.

Baba was always against formalities in worship and did not like people to fall in debt for making pilgrimages. He said, loving remembrance and gratitude towards god is enough and there is no necessity for formal show of devotion towards Guru or God. He said, serving His “children” is equal to serving Him.

Baba always kept His promises. Through this we learn that we have to make commitments to people only when we know we can keep them and not to disappoint others. Baba, Master, and God for us has the ability to keep up His promises when He was in flesh and also after His demise. But we humans have limited capacity hence it becomes important for us to think before we make a commitment.

From the above few facts outlined in Satcharita it is evident that Baba was a Satpurusha – a perfect man, who not just preached but lived the life of righteousness. Initially people thought Him to be a mad fakir, but eventually those who raised the stone took shelter at His feet, seeing the divinity that radiated from Him. Such a master lived and walked on this earth and still guides us. When we feel lost and despair at the events happening in this world, let us reflect our contribution to this chaos - have we added to it or reduced it? The best contribution we can make to this world is to follow what Baba taught us through Satcharita and teach our children the important values of love, empathy, kindness, charity and sharing. These will stand us in good stead at any given point in time. Let us leave this world with an indelible mark of immortality by teaching the good values to our children who make the future, as through them we live forever through generations together. Take Satcharita as the voice of the invisible Master who still lives through that holy book, teaching generations together. Gift a Satcharita to a child of Baba, and live by His words. That is will be your biggest contribution to this society.

Haresh G Jagiani, Tanzania

First of all I want to thank you for creating and managing "Heritage Of Shiridi Sai". Its a great place where you can know more about Baba everyday, how he touches everyone's life.

My family members are devotees of Baba since ages. I remember that part of my childhood was visiting Shirdi and spending time in Baba's front yard. I sometimes become nostalgic and long to go to Shirdi.

Baba is everywhere with us. I have had many experiences where Baba guided me, watched out for me. I would like to share my recent experience. I was 5 weeks pregnant and one night I saw Baba in my dream. He was very sick and was unable to walk. So I took him in my arms as if holding a baby. He told me that I was going to have a tough time. I told him that I could wade through anything if He blessed me. He smiled and applied Vibhuti to my forehead. After this dream within a week I had miscarriage. I was very depressed for few months and thought why did Baba let this happen to me. There might be many reasons for this, could be my bad karma. The important thing is I survived and by Baba's grace I have a six months old baby now. I am very blessed it could have been much worse but Baba saved us.

Right now my family is going through very rough time. I know Baba is with us. All we have to do is trust him and hang in there.
