FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE

……“Sadgurus like Shri Shirdi Sai Baba, operate simultaneously at two levels of consciousness. Some of their activities are manifested and some are non-manifested in nature. Some examples of the manifested activities are: feeding the poor and the devotees, curing their physical and mental diseases, rendering temporal assistance in all their material needs and religious pursuits etc. The manner in which He gave relief was sometimes miraculous. Hundreds of families of Shirdi and outside used to depend on Him for relief and sustenance in their worldly existence.

Sai Baba never refused to help any one who came to Him. He laboured day in and day out to solve the complex problems of His devotees. Once He told a devotee that He (Baba) could not sleep during the previous night as He was thinking about that devotee. “What would happen to my people, if I constantly do not keep an eye on them” He used to say. This was the role of a Provider and Protector.

However, the other role of Shri Sai was subtle and secret in nature, which created a permanent value in the lives of the people that approached Him. Shri Shirdi Sai Baba was a Perfect Master or a Sadguru. Being a Sadguru His divine charter of duties was to train the devotees with a view to evolve their mental and emotional qualities and ultimately to lead them towards emancipation. Such a process of evolution, when left to the disciple himself, is very slow and may take a number of lives to achieve.

As ordained by the law of nature, every human being evolves during each life cycle while on the earth plane by experiencing an un-calculable number of events generating pleasure or pain. Without, the help of a Master or Sadguru who has traveled along and experienced the path of spiritual evolution, the seeker goes through a process of trials and errors and in the process his evolution slows down. However, if one accepts a Sadguru as his mentor, and strictly abides by His advice, his evolution becomes easier and faster. The Sadguru with His divine powers and qualities has immense capabilities to hasten the process of evolution of all beings that come in contact with Him.

Therefore, He is called a Samarth (capable of giving God realisation) Sadguru. However, notwithstanding the ceaseless effort of the Masters all devotees do not progress spiritually at an equal pace. The pace of evolution of a devotee depends on a few prime factors, like, acceptance of the Master-both intellectually and emotionally, as the sole guide and Protector in the spiritual journey, complete faith in and adherence to the advice and commands of the Master and finally a lot of perseverance under all trying circumstances and over long periods of time to follow the Master's prescriptions in its true spirit.”…….


FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI

……“Baba gave advice to Chandorkar as to how to behave in society. Baba himself behaved excellently in respect of every relation in society. What are the ties of Baba and what were the ties also of Baba in previous janmas, and what would be his ties in future? Baba recognised in his accounts of previous births and of the present one that he had parents, and that he had to help and support his mother or his father, and his brothers and sisters. He recognised that sisters of his former janmas gave him support, and took birth in this janma again to continue the support.

Tatya Patil’s mother, Bayaji Bai, was a sister of his previous birth and by that strong tie she took immense pains to see him fed, especially in his young nomadic days at Shirdi, when he used to wander into the jungles not caring for food. She would run into those jungles and feed him wherever he might be. From the beginning of his life, this sister made it certain that he would have his food and not starve. For such a provision one must be indeed highly grateful, and Baba was grateful.

Baba could never forget even the slightest offices done to him. On one occasion when he climbed up a house and wanted to descend, and a ladder was brought to him, he paid Rs.2/- to the man who brought the ladder, saying that services should not be accepted gratis.

Similarly when a Muslim applicant for dynamite, who had been twice improperly refused licence by the Collector, came to Baba for his intercession, Baba told Chandorkar that he (Chandorkar) must help that applicant with a license for dynamite for deepening his well. Baba said, ‘This time let him present the application to the Collector, and the Collector will grant the license’. Baba added, ‘This man has left a box with us, and it is not proper for us to say ‘no’, when he asks for its return’. Chandorkar explained that statement to mean that applicant had done in a former birth some good service to Baba or to him (Chandorkar) or to both, and out of gratitude; he must be helped on this occasion.

When Baba was so full of gratitude even for such slight services, he would be the last person to forget a lifelong support for feed, etc, such as Bayyaji Bai gave him. He never forgot it. In addition to that, her son Tatya Patil was attending upon him at the mosque and spent his nights for many long years with Baba, serving Baba and sleeping with Baba. Baba, remembering all that, was very affectionate towards Tatya.

Tatya would call Baba 'Mama', that is maternal uncle, and Baba would refer to Tatya as 'Puthna' or nephew. Baba would not get up from his bed till Tatya came up and lifted him and lit up his pipe for him to smoke. He was watching over all devotees no doubt, but especially over Tatya, and he gave him frequent advice based upon his own superior knowledge. When there was the danger of his valuable horse getting damaged by a journey, Baba warned him. Tatya did not mind the warning and went on the journey, and nearly lost his horse.

Similarly on other occasions Baba gave him the use of his Antarjnana or supersensual knowledge. But what people mostly judge by is the extent to which one gives them worldly goods. Baba gave plenty of the world's goods to Tatya. During the last ten years when Baba was getting a Provincial Governor's income, Tatya was daily paid a fixed sum on which income tax was levied. With his funds, Tatya was able to build three storeyed houses for himself and purchase lands also. He grew rich and respectable, and was looked up to as a person who was the pet of Baba. It is even said that in 1918 when Baba said that Tatya would die, Tatya was saved. Some people believe that Baba gave up his own life in order to save Tatya's life. A dictum in Srimad Bhagavata is

Gururnasasyat svajano na sasyat,
Na mochayet yah samupeta mrityum

This means, ‘If one does not save the life of a person in peril of death, he is unfit to be called a Guru, kinsman, etc'. Baba has said that he would sacrifice his own life for his bhaktas who concentrate their affection on him. This certainly applied to Tatya. Baba's concern for Tatya Patil's family did not stop with mere provision of funds. Unfortunately, amongst the Patils' families, all of whom were devoted to Baba, there were divisions and factions. Baba was watching over them. On one occasion in the Mosque, he suddenly said, “Don't beat, don't beat”.

When G.S. Khaparde's son asked Baba why he said so, Baba explained that in the quarrels between the Patils there was imminent danger of clash, and to prevent it he said, “Don't beat, don't beat”. That is how Baba has been safeguarding and helping Tatya and his people. He helped Tatya (by a chamatkar) in his criminal appeal against the conviction and sentence of Raghu and others. In so many other ways also, Baba has helped Tatya. So it is clear that Baba recognised the bonds of kinship with Tatya as binding on him, and exercised all his powers for his benefit.

He has rendered similar help to a number of others. These ties of kinship are called ‘Rinanubandha’. Baba has stated that Rinanubandha has to be respected. That ‘rina’ may be due to kinship in past births or in the present. Baba stated his kinship to Kondaji, G.S. Khaparde, and others. He recognises Guru bandhutva, that is, being under the same master, as a powerful bond or tie or rina. Once, he said that Dada Kelkar, G.S. Khaparde, Bapu Saheb Jog, H.S. Dixit, Shama and he (Baba) were all under one common Guru in a previous birth, as Guru bandhus, and, therefore, he had brought them together in this life so that they might renew their contact. He helped each of the above in a very remarkable degree, as set out fully in other chapters of this book.

To Upasani also he revealed the fact that the ancestors of Baba and Upasani were for centuries closely connected, and in consequence Baba was under a very heavy obligation to help Upasani, to lever him up, so to speak, Baba said to Balakrishna Sastri (Upasani Baba's brother) 'There was a tree or a log of wood. There were two on it, evidently one at each and, and by pressing oneself down, the other would be levered up'. Baba said, 'One of these went down and the other went up'. Sri Upasani Baba explained this to mean that it was something like see-saw and that Baba had levered up Sri Upasani in this way. That is, by his powers he had raised the spiritual level and the happiness of Upasani Baba vesting him also with considerable psychic power or siddhi.

Baba recognised even playmates and said he found at a particular tomb that a girl who had been a playmate of his was dead and buried in a tomb, and he found her haunting that tomb. So, he went there and remained there a little while, and afterwards took her with him and brought her to a Babul tree (at Shirdi) and kept her there, evidently for further spiritual elevation of her soul.

Baba recognised his rinanubandha even to animals in the present or past. Mrs. G.S. Khaparde was once a cow that gave him plenty of milk, and on account of that rinanubandha, she, after becoming human and the daughter of a gardener, was levered up into a Kshatriya family, a rich Vaisya family, and finally a Brahmin family. In all her janmas she renewed her conatact with Baba and gave him food. Baba in his turn helped her, and in this janma Baba gave her ‘Rama Mantra’. He not only massaged her, but asked her to repeat ‘Rajaram, Rajaram’, as that would ensure her Sadgati.”……


DEVOTEE EXPERIENCE

Recently I had, what seemed like a nightmare. Somebody was beating me and I was not able to see the person's face. It reached a point when I was in pain and couldn't do anything to stop this person. The person, wearing black clothes, continued beating me on the ribs and arm. The pain that I was suffering soon became unbearable and I screamed out in utter pain: "Sai Baba!" Suddenly within seconds the beating stopped and a person in white kafni appeared from the side and unfortunately at that moment, my eyes closed - I had passed out.

After a while, as I opened my eyes, I noticed that there was bruising all over my chest area but the person in black clothes had disappeared and Baba in his white kafni stood above me and just smiled for a while and then vanished. This was not the first time that Baba has appeared to me - several times He has always warned me about any mishaps that are about to happen or has always helped me.

I have had other experiences of Baba's vision but the most remarkable one was few years back, when I left Kenya and had forgotten to pack my Sai Satcharita. When I reached London, I remembered it and tried to get my friend to send it to me but he didn't. So I was very upset and was not able to find another copy of it and I said that whenever I could go to Shirdi, I would get a copy. Then in 1994, my sister got married in India and everywhere that we went, we either met people who were devotees of Sai Baba, or we saw his portraits and photos.

After the wedding, I had planned to go to Shirdi but was not able to do so. But just a few days before I was due to return to the UK, we got an offer to go to Shirdi. Upon reaching there, I immediately went to Baba's mandir and prayed and the guide then asked what I wanted to do in the short time that I had left. My immediate reply was to get a copy of Sai Satcharita. I was told that it would take a while before I would be able to obtain a copy so I asked the guide to wait for me. He didn't say anything and everybody else was forced to wait. But a miracle took place as within five minutes several copies arrived and one was handed over to me along with some udi.

A few years later as I was going through an old suitcase of mine, I noticed a book with a red cover and saw the writing "Sai Satcharita." I quickly opened it and saw that it was the copy that I had forgotten in Kenya and not the one that I had brought from Shirdi. I could not understand how it reached there and I still can't. Just a while back I enquired whether my friend had sent me the book. The reply I received was that there were so many things that he had sent me but he was not able to remember a book of any sort being sent.

POEM

Life is like that

What is life people often ask
It is your inner self with a mask
Life is colourful, surprising and definitely not bad
Yes, life is like that.

At every step there is
Something new to learn
The more you know
The more you earn

In life, everything comes one step at a time
It is sometimes sweet as jaggery or sour as a lime
In life, there are highs and lows
Only he will win who is steady and slow

Life is a journey towards the one
Who drives away the darkness from our lives
Just like the sun

We see, we grow, we live and learn
and finally, we die
We know we are born
But we wonder why?
Life is realisation
Of the ultimate formation
Life is to seek the truth
To abolish all lies
After that there will be no more why’s

In the journey of life
We must stay calm
Only then shall we realize
That enlightenment is within the reach of our palms

What is life? People often ask
It is your inner soul with a mask
Life is colourful and definitely not bad
Oh yes! My friend’s life is like that.

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION

Devotion

How do we make Devotion happen? It is not a product or merchandise, but a quality which has to be fashioned out of attitudes, codes of conduct, behavior and principles, ideologies, respect, trust, faith, belief and an innate recognition of the Divinity in everything that pulsates with Life.

Therefore each and every morning we thank the Lord for giving us another Life, and an opportunity to serve Him better, and through others gladden His heart. Devotion is this single act, with no intent of getting any benefits in return, but only for the love of God who is seen and made your own. This is the strength of the Lord to motivate, enrich, enhance and enlighten each and every step you plan.

The feeling of bliss, joy and illumination will translate to the person, place or the object on or for whom it is done and will take the radiation far and wide. From the night of Diwali to Karthikaye Deepam and every day let us pledge to make one such act of Devotion every day and add to it to make the pile very large...so that all of us children of our Dear Sainatha will be blazing like millions of Suns with outpourings of devout Devotion.

Deepa H, Seattle, Washington, USA

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!!!
