……“There are a few major differences between other species and the human beings. Human beings or the homo-sapiens race has established itself as the most superior race on this earth because of the superiority of its mental faculties. These capacities grew stage by stage through innumerable stages of self experiments conducted by nature on itself. What we call as nature is the limited manifestation of the sovereign divine power called Brahma or Ishwara. Thus, that ultimate power manifested as universe, solar system, earth etc. Thereafter, it created the living organisms, birds, animals and ultimately human beings through different stages of growth in consciousness.

All other species have instinctive intelligence but what human beings exclusively possess is intellect. This intellectual consciousness of a man is a combination of his mental faculties like memory, recall, analytical ability and qualities of heart like love-hatred, selfishness-self sacrifice, anger-calmness, intolerance-¬patience etc. The highly developed human brain computer takes all these factors into consideration in giving a solution to any problem. It is again this intellect that has created the loftiest and greatest systems in the earth - social, economic, religious, political and spiritual etc.

Man’s intellect has penetrated into the micro world of elements and the macro dimensions of space. The last two to three decades have witnessed an “intellectual explosion” in the world. Movement in space, cloning of animals, transplantation of human organs, sub-earth discoveries, micro analysis of elements, wire-less communication, to mention a few, have revolutionalised human civilization and given human beings immense power to control nature, almost bordering on divinity.

Commensurately, the pressure on the human brain has increased tremendously. Newer concepts are entering into our thinking system making the old concepts redundant. It is happening so fast that most of us are finding it difficult to adjust to this rapid transition whereas it is easy for the new generations to adjust at a faster pace due to the nascent state of their mind. The older generations find it to be heavily at odds with their old concepts and style of thinking. This obviously is creating a lot of mal-¬adjustment in individuals with different levels of sensitivities and also greater mal-¬adjustment in the social fabric. Such mal-adjustments are getting reflected in the assertion of selfish individualism beyond proportions, discord between parents and off-spring, large numbers of divorce in marital life, material approach to emotional aspects of life and a mad race to compete in the material world at the cost of the finer aspects of life. This has happened in many civilizations earlier and by the law of self-contradiction these civilizations lost their glory. This mal-adjustment between the material and the emotional world brought the downfall of the mighty Roman, Indus Valley and many other civilizations.

The answer to such confusion does not lie in assertion of egoism or selfish individualism at the cost of greater social good but to accept the ways of others, with their perfections and imperfections. Love is not acceptance of only the best in the loved one but is the total acceptance of the entire personality. This is what Baba preached and practiced at Shirdi. Only He was capable of bringing the divergent groups of individuals belonging to different castes, religions, creeds and different socio economic status under a single banner - i.e. the banner of humanism. The world needs to follow this concept today, to make tomorrow a better place to live.”…….


……“Everything on earth is liable to change or mitigation and if we remember this, we shall be very often able to meet 'the objections sometimes raised to Sai Baba’s statement about karma. In the very opening Charters of Baba’s Charters & Sayings, we find the statement of Baba. ‘If one puts his foot on Shirdi soil, his karma is abolished’. Many a man wonders whether that is possible, especially in view of the dictum quoted above, “Avascyam Anubhoktavyam”. Baba also told Chandorkar that certain broad decisions arrived at as to the birth and death of people are treated as facts resulting from previous acts of inviduals.

Regarding birth of a child, death of son-in-law, etc., about which Chandorkar was anxious to make Baba work on his behalf, Baba declared that they were the result of previous karma and could not be altered. In a sense that is true. Certain births and certain deaths are all fixed by series of antecedent events, but yet Baba is able to mould these and shape these at certain stages and modify these for the benefit of the concerned devotees.

When talking of Dr. Chidambaram Pillai, Baba explained the correct doctrine. Dr. Pillai had intense suffering from guinea worm. He told a friend to go and report to Baba that his sufferings were intolerable and to request Baba to transfer these sufferings to some ten later births of his and leave him free from the sufferings in this janma. When this was reported to Baba, the latter sent for Pillai and told him, ‘What! you want ten janmas? What has to be endured in ten janmas can be crushed into ten days by the power of satpurushas.’

So Baba ordered him to remain with his legs outstretched at Dwarakamayee and he told him that a crow would come and peck at his wound and cure him. In a few days, Abdul, Baba’s permanent attendant, carelessly put his foot down upon Pillai’s wound and crushed all the guinea worms out of it, merely by accident as he (Pillai) would have thought. But nothing done at the Mosque to Pillai could be considered as an accident, and Baba said that Abdul was the crow, and that no further crow was wanted to peck at Pillai’s wound. Pillai was then asked to go home, and in ten days, the entire suffering from guinea worm was cured.

In another case, that of Bhimaji, who had serious chest disease, asthma, tuberculosis, etc., Baba first told Shama, ‘Shama, in bringing this thief to me what a load of responsibility you are placing on me!’ Baba meant that the tuberculosis, asthma, etc., from which Bhimaji suffered were the result of Bhiinaji’s karma in a previous janma consisting of theft. Bhimaji felt Babas declaration a blow. At once he surrendered himself to Baba and said, ‘Helper of the helpless! I am helpless. Pray show thy pity and grace to me’.

Then Baba’s tone changed. Baba told him, ‘The Fakir (God) is merciful, and your disease will be cured’. He was suffering from the results of a karma but that could be mitigated, and so the man was sent to live and sleep in a wet verandah. Bhimaji did so. There, he had two very dreadful dreams.

In one dream, he was mercilessly birched by a school master. For, in the dream he fancied he was a boy and the master was birching him. So, he felt the pain in the dream and he roared out. In the second dream, it was even worse. He felt that some one was placing a stone roller and rolling it over his breast. He suffered all the horror of instant death approaching him. All the pain of a hanging sentence and whipping sentence were endured by this man in the course of one night.

Baba thus changed the punishments which he had earned by his previous karma, and told him that he was thus free from karmic effects. He then recovered his health. The above instances go to show that most of our conceptions about karma are nebulous and ungrounded, and that the safest course for us to follow would be to be guided by the dicta of Satpurushas like Sai Baba.”……


On 7th January 2007, my wife, daughter and I reached Shirdi to have darshan of the Sadguru Sainath. Our tickets for returning from Shirdi to Delhi were booked on Jhelum Express on 8th January 2007 and we were to depart from Kopergaon Railway Station at 22:35 hrs. After spending the entire day at Shirdi we attended the evening Aarti at Dwarkamai (Masjid) and sought permission from Baba for our journey to Delhi.

We left Shirdi in an autorickshaw at 21:00 hrs so as to reach Kopergaon from where we had to board the train for traveling to Delhi. The distance between Shirdi and Kopergaon is around 20 kms and most of the journey is traversed on the state highway, which is connected to other major towns located in and around Shirdi. It was dark and the only light was from oncoming vehicles traveling at very high speed. The January evening chill made the journey tough for our daughter and we wrapped her in a shawl in order to provide her some comfort and warmth. The windows of the Rickshaw were open and there was no covering / sheet to thwart the cool breeze coming through the windows.

Before we left the hotel and proceeded to Kopergaon, I gave the train tickets and some cash to my wife to keep in her purse. The bag also contained my wife's identity card, some documents, a diary and other miscellaneous items. After traveling around 12 kms from Shirdi, suddenly my wife tried to reach for her purse to get cough syrup for our daughter. To her surprise she could not find the purse in the autorickshaw.

I told her she might have left it at the hotel counter but she was sure that she had carried it along while moving into the auto. We requested the autorickshaw driver to halt so that we could search for the purse. He stopped the auto and our frantic search started but we could not locate the purse. There was total darkness and silence and I used the searchlight of my mobile phone to look for the purse in the corners of the auto but met with no success. We requested the autorickshaw driver to return to Shirdi in the hope of finding it somewhere on the way, though I knew this was ‘wishful thinking.' I realized that we would not be able to retrieve a small purse on the stretch of 12 kms that we had already covered from Shirdi towards Koperagon.

The train arrival time was approaching and we were in a fix regarding what to do, as the tickets were in the bag. We kept requesting the driver to move as fast as he could towards Shirdi in the remote hope of retrieving the purse but he saw no merit in driving aimlessly. My wife kept pestering him to drive a few more kilometers as we had already covered 4-5 kms towards Shirdi.

After realizing that it is next to impossible to get the bag on the highway where vehicles are plying without interruption, I remembered my Sadguru and prayed Him. I prayed to Baba that we cannot not leave Shirdi with such unpleasant memories in our mind. Within minutes of remembering Sai, I could see a small object lying in the middle of the road and from the distance I presumed that it could be the purse.

I requested the driver, who by now was not willing to travel any further, to drive slowly as we approached the object. Meanwhile a heavy truck was approaching from the opposite side and with the help of its headlights I was stunned to find that the black object lying on the road was indeed my wife's purse. I alighted from the Rickshaw and pulled the purse inside and heaved a sigh of relief and thanked Baba for HIS merciful deed. There was no damage done to any items kept inside the purse except a minor cut to it's exterior surface.

We started the journey to Koperagaon with only 15-20 minutes left before the scheduled departure of the train. It appeared that we might not be able to make it in time though the rickshaw driver was trying his best to reach the station. On reaching the station we heard the announcement that the train was running late by half an hour. What a miracle!

Finally we boarded the train with sweet memories and our hearts filled with love and gratitude for Sadguru Saibaba.

Offering to God

I ask you Oh God !
What can I offer You?

Whatever I possess
all belongs to You.
How can I offer You
what is already Yours?

I offer You water
representing my tears,
shed in longing
and desire of Yours.

I tender these flowers
as my pure heart,
devoid of anger,
lust and pride.

I present these fruits
as my mind,
full of love
and free from thoughts.

I offer You
five kinds of sweets,
as five elements
which constitute me.

Accept these offerings
Oh God !
As my love, worship and devotion.

Devotion means unflinching faith and love in God or Guru. Unless the faith is mixed with love, it is difficult to sustain it all the time. Sometimes, in difficult situations, faith is put to severe trials. This can be seen in the lives of the great saints and sages. Because of their unshakable love in God, they survived through the trials without losing the balance. The love for Guru can be for the physical form or for the changeless essence present behind the physical frame. Sri Sai Baba mentions about both in His teachings. Sri Sai Baba advises his devotees about seeing His form in the living beings [Bhakti], meditating on the essence behind the form [Jnanam].

It is very important to have faith in Guru and his teachings. If some thing goes in a different way, other than expected, it does not deny the Grace of the Guru. Acceptance of results for the actions after doing ones personal best is the basis of faith. For the heart breaking and difficult problems of life, there may not be ready made answers. But, it is vital in those times to hold on to the torch of Faith, other wise there is every chance to fall into the deep abyss of doubting mind.

A great saint in one of his compositions ironically laments, "What can I do with my tricky mind? If some thing goes rightly, I feel that it is mainly because of my effort and partly because of God's grace; if some thing goes wrong, I feel that mainly it is due to your lack of Grace and partly due to my lack of proper effort. Kindly show Grace on me and make my mind steady on your Lotus feet in both pleasure and pain". Let us pray to Sri Sai Baba to grant us steady faith and love on him.

Sri Sadguru Sainath is the substance of all scriptures and He is the wisdom that pervades eternity. The purpose of the seeker is to seek the depths of such an entity in order to quench the thirst; the blessing only mankind is bestowed with in nature. Known as sadhana, such a pursuit is the subject of discussions, arguments, speculations and postulations suited to the human convenience. True, religions and sects all talk about the same, yet we have many religions and sects. Let us not however forget that Sri Sai Baba refutes any argument in the name of God and he said without mincing words, All are same, and God is One.

Sri Sai Baba's statement through Anantrao Patankar's episode in Shri Sai Satcharitra that devotion is the most important qualification required to realize the supreme has most profound impression on His followers, then and now. Bhakthi marg or the path of devotion is sure to lead one to God that exists in the self and elsewhere. Sri Sai Baba stressed repeatedly the importance of realizing the self; the story of the merchant seeking the knowledge of the Supreme that exists within and out in Sri Sai Satcharitra is an excellent example.

How does devotion lead to the pursuit of the knowledge of the self? Even before we ask that question, one may wonder whether something known as self realization really exists. The surprising answer to the question is Yes! Mankind completely dwells in the realization of gross perceptions; the abilities that define the self to its fullest beauty, I realize, therefore, I am! However, the term self realization in its spiritual context is completely subtle and difficult to comprehend.

Sri Sai Baba said that His coffers are open and those who seek shall be given. In this context, the subtleties of realizing the self assumes enormous importance if one were to pay attention.

Let us all spend a moment on seeking Sri Sadguru Sainath's treasures that lead us to our own subtle nature, the material that is all pervading.

Baba is always with everyone. I started praying Him from past five years. I was very disappointed when I went to the Sai Mandir near my house five years back. I just thought maybe I should go to this place, what drew me to the place I still don't know. After the pooja, the priest there gave me Sai's robe and Saicharitha in Hindi and asked me to pray Baba. When I was reading the third chapter itself I could see the change in the life.

Things got settled slowly in my life. Until lately I just reliased that I was not praying Sai from 5 yrs but I did sing His songs long way back without even knowing who He was. It was when I was in 4th standard, I don't remember how I started to go for the Bhajan classes and there was a big photo of Sai and we used sing lots of Bhajans. I was doing this for almost more than 5 yrs. I don't remember why I stopped. The day I realized this I was so thrilled and this increased by faith in Him. It’s very true, Sai knows how to call His devotes to Him, and they would get drawn to Him even without their knowledge.

I still have lots of difficulties in life, but I know I would be able to overcome those with His grace. It’s such a wonderful feeling to reliase that I was praying to Him from a very long time!! Today my faith has increased so much that I feel like praying to Him always..
Sai Ram!!!

Each and every day I remember dear Sai Baba and my day goes off well. So many miracles have happened in my life which I will share with everyone. I have been reading this magazine for several years and I find that it gives us value education on how we should conduct ourselves and how we can help people live as peacefully as possible in these turbulent times. In the latest issue of this magazine Shri Guruji's message regarding suitable dress for various occasions has impressed me. I sincerely believe that devotees who go to Sai temples and other temples and places of prayer will follow his advice. His wishes are Shri Shirdi Sai Baba's wishes and I think he has expressed in a very appropriate manner. Om Sai Ram kripa

Sainatha and the Sai family which is the whole wide world of creation made a dramatic entry into my life clearing all else in a manner so simple and yet so definitive and so very enchantingly. Thank you very much for making this site (www.heritageofshirdisai.org) available so that we can all merge and fuse together as a big family to synergize, motivate and refuel each other especially when there is nought else but large open spaces to be addressed.


Nayanika, Moscow

For the past few months I wanted to thank you for the Ramnavami issue of Heritage of Shirdi Sai Magazine. I received it by registered mail in the last week of April but for some reason or the other, I could not write back to you. It’s a wonderful magazine. The messages of Shri C.B. Satpathy ji are like blessings for devotees like us who live so far away. The articles written by Sai bhakts from different parts of the world simply interpret their enormous faith and devotion in Baba and those messages inspire not only my faith in Baba but they also inspire me to share the wonderful leelas of Baba that I have witnessed in my life. Thank you so much for making this magazine possible. It could not have been possible without the hard work and determination of the Heritage of Shirdi Sai team and of course nothing is possible without Sai's kripa. Keep up with the good work. May Sai always bless you and your team for this noble and thoughtful deed.

Good wishes to you always.
