FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE
……“God is addressed
differently by different groups of people and also personally
by individuals through various names. God, the unseen,
is thus addressed differently as He does not have a single
form. His manifested forms are millions and millions.
These forms maybe visible to the human eye or may not
be. He has gross forms, subtle forms, energy forms, thought
forms, feeling forms. But the ultimate form of God is
an unseen form, which no one has seen. All Saints, paths
and religions, at their best, have called it a vast, timeless,
spaceless, causeless, attributeless ocean of emptiness
or a primordial void
Whatever God reveals
about Himself through the sense and beyond perceptions
to the human beings, is what they understand Him to be.
Species other than human beings are not mentally evolved
to conceptualize that the movements in the universe and
also in them are created by God as their soul-force. The
excellence and superiority of the homo-sapiens lies here.
Not only do they have the capacity to conceptualise God
in myriads of forms but they have also worked through
the methods to experience God at different stages of consciousness.
Whereas other religions have conceptualized a limited
number of these forms of God, Hinduism, being one of the
oldest religions on this earth has created thousands of
symbols for millions of aspects of the unlimited God.
This has not happened in a day or year. It has evolved
through the passage of time of thousands of years through
the experience of practitioners who have devoted their
full lives to the realm of spiritualism.
The universally accepted
principle of experiencing God can be explained through
the parallelism of a river meeting an ocean or sea. All
rivers emanating from different places (locations), meandering
through different lands and paths ultimately merge in
sea. Thereafter, forever the river is a part of the sea.
It merges its total identity in it. When we think of the
Bay of Bengal, we do not picturise is it as a combination
of the Ganges, Brahmaputra and other similar rivers and
thousands of other water channels merging in it. Herein
comes the concept of multiplism and dualism leading to
Monism (Advaita). Since each of these rivers flows on
different soils, through different hills and forests,
takes different curves and falls, the attributes of the
water it carries cannot be the same - i.e., in content,
speed, density, quality and quantity. However, once merged
in the sea, all its qualities merge and become one with
the attributes of the seawater.
and paths that people follow are like these different
rivers. It is wrong to criticize any of these religions
and paths. One is free to practice any path he chooses,
but is socially and morally not free to slander other
religions or paths.
This is what Shri
Sai Nath Maharaj taught his disciples through His own
conduct and precepts. Shri Sai Satcharitra amply elaborates
on this universalism of Baba in the backdrop of some day-to-day
happenings at Shirdi. Following the Master, Sai devotees
should, therefore, develop the highest quality of religious
tolerance. As Baba used to say all are the children of
God and He is the only and ultimate Lord.”…….
FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI
helped B. V. Dev to surrender himself more and more and
derive Baba's help at every stage, and hence B. V. Dev
in his turn became a means of spreading Baba’s glory.
Though not quite on the large scale on which Chandorkar
did work for Baba, Dev also absorbed Baba’s magnetism
through Chandorkar and directly also, and communicated
Baba's magnetism to others.
But it is not always
easy to make people derive full faith in Baba. A karnam
under B. V. Dev, having learnt about Dev’s attachment
to a great Satpurusha, called Sai Baba, came to him to
get Baba’s help to decide an important question
for himself and his family. That karnam had his own Guru
who, for his own purposes, wished to get a new image to
replace the karnam’s former image and have a grand
installation ceremony, and hoped to derive considerable
pecuniary profits from the proposed ceremony.
So, while the priest
of the karnam was insisting on it, the karnam himself
having some doubts came to Dev and through him consulted
Baba as to whether the new image should be brought and
installed. Baba was consulted. Baba gave his opinion that
the new image should not be brought in. The consultation
was through Shama. The karnam, being very anxious to get
his priest’s advice confirmed, wanted to ask Baba,
‘What would happen if the new image was brought?’
Baba gave a story.
He said he and a companion
had gone together, and he told his companion not to buy
an animal. In spite of his advice that animal was bought
and brought to the village, and at once an epidemic of
plague broke out as the result of the animal coming in.
Baba left it there. The karnam, not fully impressed by
Baba’s all ¬knowing character, tried to please
his Guru and brought in the new image. At once an epidemic
broke out and the karnam's own wife was attacked first.
The karnam asked his Guru to help him, but that Guru wanted
half the property of the karnam to be made over immediately
to the priest, and was trying in various ways to deprive
the karnam of property. The karnam woke up. He went to
Dev and mentioned how things had turned out. Then on Dev's
advice he removed the new idol and reinstalled the old
idol, and by Baba's grace was saved from further harm.”……
God is an unknown
entity. God is an unseen entity. However, with absolutely
irrefutable logic, rational argument and reason, Vedanta
establishes the fact of God. And through analysis we can
infer, “Yes, there must be a God; it stands to reason.
It is irrational to suppose that there cannot be such
a thing as God. There must be.” And scriptures also
tell us that He is a Being who is sacred, who is holy,
all-pure, noble and sublime. But, nevertheless, God is
still for us only a concept of the mind. We have not seen
God. We have not touched, nor tasted, nor smelt Him. We’ve
only heard about Him. We can only infer Him. We can only
But then, if we are
able to see in a human individual manifestations of holiness,
of sanctity, of purity, of sublimity, of nobility, of
goodness, of loftiness of conduct, character, nature,
sentiment, thought, feeling and action, if we see something
out of the ordinary something extraordinary, something
special, a manifestation of those qualities that we have
been taught to associate only with God then we say: “If
such a human being can exist, God must exist. Otherwise,
from whence do these qualities come which we do not normally
see in anyone?” When we see this divinity, this
holiness, this sanctity, we begin to realise: “Yes,
God I have not seen, but godliness I have seen.
All the qualities
attributed to God by the scriptures, by saints and sages,
in all religious contexts those I see in an unusual measure,
in an extraordinary measure, in this being. Because I
have seen this being and this being is known to me, I
am assured that God is. I know there must be a God.”
And in the Vedic tradition the guru is such a being. The
guru becomes for us pratyaksha devaa, visible God. God
reveals Himself through the guru.
The guru thus becomes the linking factor, a channel for
putting the wandering, lost jivatma, the individual Soul,
back into contact with its source, God, the Universal
Soul. And just as the guru is a channel for the jivatma
to re-link itself with the paramatma, even so, if we can
create a channel between ourselves and our guru, then
that channel will become the effecting means of receiving
from the guru guru-kripa, all that the guru is, the knowledge
of the guru, the sanctity of the guru, the purity of the
guru, the spirituality of the guru.
And that channel is called guru-bhakti. That is why the
significant verse in the Svetasvatara Upanishad: “yasya
deve para bhaktih yatha deve tatha gurau, tasyaite kathita
hyarthah prakasante mahatmanah.” If you have supreme
devotion to God and the same kind of devotion to your
guru, then to you, the essence, the subtle truths of the
scriptures become revealed.” Thus it is that through
guru-bhakti the sadhaka, the seeker, the disciple, creates
an effective link, a connection, a channel, which enables
the guru to share with the disciple what the guru has
been endowed with from God.
So, we have to provide
a way for the guru to give what he wishes to give. And
that is through guru-bhakti, devotion, where there is
no place for the ego. If the thought comes, “I have
got great guru-bhakti,” then finished, that bhakti
becomes cancelled, it is nullified. You yourself must
become the very embodiment of that love, that devotion.
There should be no awareness of some being, some person
having that quality of devotion. Then it becomes a subtle
spiritual ego. The very purpose of the existence of the
guru is to remove the separatist I-consciousness, the
conscious¬ness of being a separate being or entity,
and if guru-bhakti becomes a means of boosting and sustaining
that abhimana (ego), ahamkara (egoism), then it loses
its purpose and becomes self-defeating.
Thus true guru-bhakti
is egoless, nirabhimana (without ego), vinamra (humble).
Sabari was bhaktisvarupa. She had great bhakti for Rama,
but she was not conscious that she was a great devotee
of Rama. Neither was Hanuman conscious that he was a great
bhakta of Rama. It was his very nature. He was an embodiment
of devotion for Rama. The gopis of Vrindavan did not know
that they were great devotees of Krishna. They said: “All
we know is that He is the one object to be adored. We
don’t know anything else. We cannot do anything
but adore Him. We are that adoration. It is our very self.
We are not different from that. Take it away from us and
we will die, we will cease to exist.” They were
filled with that love, not with egoistical awareness of
The greater the growth
of devotion and the greater the reverence for the guru,
the greater is the inflow of the guru's grace. The greater
the desire to carry out the ideals and principles of the
guru in life and the greater the keen eagerness and firm
determination to carry out the instructions of the guru
faithfully, meticulously, day after day, in one’s
daily activities and life, the greater is the inflow of
the guru’s grace. Gurudev was never tired of again
and again reiterating: “Obedience is better than
reverence.” And Vivekananda came down heavily upon
mere sentiment and emotion. He said that this sentiment
has ruined us. We have become backboneless; we lack a
sense of purpose.
And what have the
Upanishads put before us to illustrate true devotion?
One disciple came to his guru as a young boy and the guru
told him that it was his duty to collect firewood daily
for the havan. He went on doing it without questioning.
He was not allowed to cut green trees; and so the whole
day, with great difficulty, he searched for and cut dry
wood, put it on his head and returned only in the evening.
The guru never gave him any spiritual instructions or
teachings. Years went by. The disciple forgot time, until
one day he realised he had become old, his hair and beard
had become silver-white. Suddenly he burst into tears:
“What is my fate? My whole life has passed away
and the guru has not yet given me brahma-jnana.”
He had become old. He had served his guru without question
ever since he was a young boy. That was his devotion.
was asked to take the guru ‘s cattle to pasture.
He had to be with the cattle all day. The guru did not
ask his wife to prepare any lunch for him, and he did
not have permission to drink milk from the cows. So the
whole day he went hungry, only quenching his thirst with
water. Days, months, years passed this way.
And one disciple
was asked to irrigate the guru ‘s fields. He had
to let the water into the fields and make sure that it
did not leak out. After working the whole day, one evening
he discovered a leak in one of the earthen walls. He tried
to plug it with some clay. It kept leaking. He tried all
methods to repair it, and finally not knowing what else
to do, he decided to plug it with his own body. So he
lay down, curled himself into a ball and stopped the leak.
After nightfall, when he had not returned, the guru became
anxious and so with several of his disciples went searching
for him. Finally they found him in his curled up position
stopping the leak.
That was the type
of guru-bhakti they had. It was not mere sentiment. It
was true guru-bhakti. It had iron behind it. It had immense
strength behind it. It had determination, sattvic determination,
behind it. These are a few towering examples of guru-bhakti
in our scriptures. There are many others. They come from
all traditions. They are all sanketa matra (indicators)
of the stuff that guru-bhakti is made of. It is divine
power, it is divine force, not merely silly human sentiment,
not merely emotion.
When such guru-bhakti
is there towards the guru, such obedience, such great
desire to carry out his behest, biddings and teachings,
then illumination automatically descends from the guru
to the disciple. The illumination in which the guru is
established comes like a spark flying from one end of
an exposed wire to another. For when the weeping old disciple
was taken by the guru’s wife to the guru and explained
why he was weeping, the guru replied:
“What! What do you mean, you have no illumination!”
Immediately, the disciple became illumined. Why? Because
of his total self-effacement, total dedication, his un¬questioning
carrying out of the behest of the guru, because of the
exemplary type of devotion that filled his heart: “I
have come to a guru. I must serve him. This is my greatest
Thus the most effective
way of deriving maximum benefit from the guru is to create
a channel of lofty, sublime devotion to the guru, heroic
guru-bhakti. And it is that heroic guru-bhakti where there
is the greatest love and reverence combined with the highest
obedience, the highest desire to please the guru by carrying
out his instructions, that becomes the great channel for
the inflow of guru-kripa. In that way, spiritual vision
dawns and you "see" Reality, you “behold”
That is the tradition.
That is the true inner dynamics of the guru sishya relationship
through which the disciple is able to benefit in a maximum
measure from the guru. Thus we have known from our scriptures,
from our ancient bhaktas, from the narratives of ancient
disciples, their relationship to their gurus. Thus we
have learnt this great secret. May we all be benefited.
May the grace of
all the brahma-vidya-gurus, from ancient times up to the
present, be upon you. May you ponder deeply, reflect deeply,
upon what an ideal disciple should be, what constitutes
real discipleship, and become benefited thereby.

And to forgive us for our constant failures
To think and speak and act according to your will.

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION
bother yourself about your husband and the collections
with him. Don't press him to spend any amount for the
temple. What I want is feeling and devotion. So give,
if you like, anything of your own." Chapter 47
Balance in all aspects of life is one of the main principles
for spiritual progression in life. Major hindrance in
spiritual path is desire/greed/attachment. When we crave
for something, our thoughts are filled with the object
of our desire and our actions are oriented more towards
fulfilling that desire irrespective of the consequences.
In the process of fulfilling our desire we hurt people
and act in a manner, which is contrary to the path of
spirituality. Hence in order to control our mind and tune
our actions towards godliness, Holy Scriptures and saints
have advocated the fact of detachment. One may raise a
question “Detachment from what”? While entangled
in the worldly affairs man tends to be emotionally and
physically attached to people and materialistic things.
Often this kind of emotional and physical attachment restricts
Baba taught the lessons
of renunciation and purification of mind to devotees who
came to see Him. One of the things that people tend to
be attached is money. If money is used for personal and
selfish needs or for destruction of community it surely
is evil. On the other hand if it is used for fulfilling
responsibilities, helping people and serving the community
then it is good. Baba wanted to teach the lessons of contentment,
renunciation and detachment. As a result Baba asked for
dakshina from devotees who flocked around Him.
Baba asked for money
from people repeatedly, even when they had run out of
money. Devotees would beg or borrow from others to give
the amount to Baba. Here people were taught the lessons
of humility and detachment. Charity is good, but what
is more important is the attitude and personal agenda
underlying the action of charity. If one gives money to
earn name and fame in the community or to show power or
status or to fan the egos, then it is not called charity.
As mentioned in Upanishads charity that is done with faith,
liberally, with modesty, awe and sympathy, is true charity
and one reaps spiritual benefits through such actions.
Borrowing money in order to give dakshina to Baba, annihilates
the ego and teaches humility. One also learns that money
comes and goes and there is no point in developing detachment
towards the same.
Shri Sai Satcharita
mentions the fact that Baba demanded dakshina from all
age groups. Sometimes Baba would distribute the money
collected as dakshina to people for safe keeping, and
this would benefit the devotees in hard times. Baba also
said that He had to give back hundred times more than
what He received. One of the best examples was that of
Mr. Ganpatrao Bodas, who emptied his moneybag before Baba.
The result of this was that he never lacked money later
in life as it came to him abundantly.
Sometimes Baba asked
for Dakshina in terms of learning certain chapters from
holy books and lodging them in the hearts where Baba resides.
Or parting with their vices or surrendering their senses
to Him. Baba also taught lessons of Brahma Gyan to haughty
and arrogant devotees by subtly asking for loan. There
were instances where people scoffed and refused to give
money as dakshina before seeing Baba and later succumbed
to Baba’s divinity, charm and His teachings thus
voluntarily giving money out of their pockets and placing
it at Baba’s feet.
feature of Baba’s teaching is that He never asked
all the rich people and sometimes if they placed money
in front of Him, and Baba did not ask for it, He did not
touch it. Shama once questioned Baba about this kind of
discrimination. Baba replied, "Shama, you know nothing.
I take nothing from anybody. The Masjidmayi (the presiding
Deity of the Masjid) calls for the debt; the donor pays
it and becomes free. Have I any home, property or family
to look after? I require nothing. I am ever free. Debt,
enmity and murder have to be atoned for, there is no escape".
Coming to present
times, how do devotees offer Dakshina to Baba when He
is physically no more? Devotees often forget that to serve
the needy is to serve Baba. Baba may not be physically
present, but if one made an effort to put aside some money
every week, however small the amount may be, for the community
development through non-profit organisations that provide
employment, free medical facilities, education, poor feeding
and shelter to the less fortunate, aged, young and little
orphans, such acts constitute Dakshina. Dakshina is not
restricted to giving money alone, it means “offering”
in any form or manner.
One of the best forms
of Dakshina is kar seva, which is popular in Sikhism.
Often people give away money rather than giving 2 hours
from their life in doing service. Offering some amount
of time from our life towards the service of God is the
best kind of Dakshina. How fortunate were, Abdul Baba,
Radhakrishnamai, Bala Patil Newaskar the prominent servants
of Baba, who rendered service not just to Baba alone but
also for people of Shirdi as well by keep roads on which
Baba walked clean and tidy.
As devotees of Baba,
let us stop and reflect on these points: have we kept
a rupee away from our wages for the poor? Have we taken
10 minutes out of our time to serve others, or share a
new skill with needy, help make somebody’s life
easier? What is our behaviour and attitude, when people
come to us asking for help? What feelings do we have when
we give charity? Constant reflection of our own behaviour
when we engage in acts as taught by Baba will help us
suppress our unwanted characteristics and help us evolve
as better humans. Dakshina/Charity or helping others is
a way of cleansing our internal self, which paves way
to reach the final goal - Vishnu padaa.

your views on Topic of Discussion- DEVOTION
KILL THE EGO
the Shastras and scriptures unanimously declare that our
enemy is the ego. The sorrows and sighs belong to the
ego - phantom. Sublimate the ego in constant vichar. In
your discrimination of the real and the unreal, the false
ego dream ends. End the ego and end the woes. If the ego
in you is the samsarin, if the ego in you is the tormentor,
if the ego in you is the enemy, spy on him more closely
and come to know who he is. Find out your enemy and drive
This ego, in fact,
is a myth, a non - entity, a dream, a phantom, a mere
false shadow. All the sorrows belong to this shadow of
your own reality, and in your own thoughtlessness you
have surrendered yourselves to the endless tyranny of
this shadow. End the shadow for ever.
Fall flat at the feet
of the Lord in love and surrender. When the ego sense
is offered at His lotus feet, the mortal limitations end
and the bhakta who has done a full and complete atma -
samarpan becomes God himself. Turn your gaze towards the
light within. If you cannot all of a sudden do so, then
do the easier act of self - surrender. Detach the mind
from memories and hopes. Egolessness is the state of Godhood.
Attain that supreme goal of life through knowledge and
right living. Kill the tyrant within you and bring out
the real Rama.
I read an interesting
story "Wanting God" on the net and thought of
sharing with all the Sai devotees.
A hermit was meditating
by a river when a young man interrupted him.
"Master, I wish to become your disciple," said
replied the hermit.
The young man thought
for a moment. "Because I want to find God."
The master jumped
up, grabbed him by the scruff of his neck, dragged him
into the river, and plunged his head under water. After
holding him there for a minute, with him kicking and struggling
to free himself, the master finally pulled him up out
of the river. The young man coughed up water and gasped
to get his breath.
When he eventually
quieted down, the master spoke. "Tell me, what did
you want most of all when you were under water."
answered the man.
said the master. "Go home and come back to me when
you want God as much as you just wanted air."
feelings about Shirdi Sai in Devotees’ Forum
Thank you very much
for the new year greeetings from Heritage of Shirdi Sai
which I feel definitely gives us the blessings received
from the Lord Sai. We appreciate the service of the organisation
to the devotees. Both the Heritage of Shirdi Sai magazine,
Sai E-zine newsletter and the website www.heritageofshirdisai.org
are simply the best.
Heritage of Shirdi
Sai magazine is a direct blessing of Shri Shirdi Sai not
only to his devotees but the entire mankind. The team
of this magazine is a bunch of blessed devotees who are
chosen by our lord Shri Shirdi Sai himself to do this
service to mankind. This magazine is getting us closer
to our master Shri Shirdi Sai Baba.
Shri Satpathyji's message in the magazine as well as the
newsletter to the Sai devotees is a real margdarshan in
today’s materialistic world and a great guidance
to the Devotees for progressing in the path of spiritualism
and practicing Baba's Teachings and philosphy in the day-to-day
life. Devotees experience column is the best, which clearly
proves that Sai is always near and he is taking care of
all His children no matter which part of the world they
live. All we need is Shraddha and Saburi the two divine
words given to the world by our Sai Baba of Shirdi.
I’m blessed to receive my first copy of the magazine
and look forward to receive it always. I am a true Shirdi
Sai devotee and don’t know any God other than Shri
Shirdi Sai Baba.
Keep up the good work and please give me a chance to do
any seva for Shri Sai Baba.
