FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE

……“Usually Masters like Baba do not force disciples to follow their advice. They suggest the prescriptions directly (through words, actions and direct experiences etc.) and/or indirectly (through dreams, anecdotes, hints and mediums etc.) to each disciple or some times to a group of disciples. Baba at times used to speak cryptic or broken sentences or utter a certain un-intelligible language. The devotees could understand its meaning only after a protracted mental deliberation over the issue. Baba could have given a direct solution but His method was to lead the devotee through a self-finding mental process. Many a times He would enquire from some devotees as to what they were talking about when they were together. He would then advise them on how to handle the compulsive negative thoughts of mind and to inculcate a habit of generating positive thoughts. The omniscient Sadguru used to keep a watch on the negative and positive thoughts of His disciples and there are hundreds of such examples. Baba used to create thought waves in the minds of devotees by His subtle powers thereby leading them to find a solution to their own problems. To many, He used to give direction in dreams as well. He used to render such help with a view to create a clearer and purer state of mind in the devotees, which is essentially required to tread along the path of spiritual evolution as per His (the Master’s) scheme. The Sadgurus do not wish to keep Their disciples dependent on Them for all times to come with a view to get their service. What they desire is to evolve the disciples to the state of perfect human beings (Satpurush), with perfect noble qualities so that they can further carry on certain subtle and difficult tasks on this earth or elsewhere in accordance with the Divine Plan. The Sadgurus not only give emancipation to the human-souls under Their care but also create a few spiritual workers from among the evolved devotees to assist Them in Their universal and subtle activities. The basic principle They follow is to light a number of candles from a single candle and They expect the process to continue for all times to come.

If we analyse the different methods that Shri Sai adopted while dealing with different devotees, one of his prescriptions stands out prominently i.e. the qualitative evolution of mind. In whatever He did towards the training of His devotees, the moot idea of Baba was to evolve not only the mental qualities but also the thought process itself. For example, when Nana Saheb Chandorkar sitting near Baba at Dwarakamayee Masjid was attracted by the beauty of a woman, Baba never advised him not to look at women. What He advised was that while looking at any beautiful woman or beautiful object, one should think of 'beauty' as an aspect of God’s creation. He further emphasized on the internal beauty of the soul and not on the external beauty of the body. The lesson that Baba gave was that when the mind is attracted to anything, it is better to attach a higher value to the thought itself rather than to struggle with mind to avoid the object of attraction. No one can struggle with his own mind, as it is the most powerful force in human beings as ordained by nature. The moment one tries to struggle with mind in order to erase an evil thought or enforce a good thought sheerly by one's will, it is bound to create certain reactions and such reactions lead to further problems. This is the most difficult task for any human being to perform, living as he does in a complex world. Therefore, Baba used to keep a constant watch on the thoughts arising in the minds of His devotees and guide them promptly.

For example He asked Kaka Saheb Dixit to stay quietly (Uge-muge) in Dixit-Wada at Shirdi and not to mix with others. He told Dixit that he should be wary of thieves in the Wada lest they would take away everything, meaning thereby loss of his positive quality of mind and peace. Similarly Upasani Baba was asked to stay at Khandoba temple and not to meet any one. He was not even allowed to meet Baba sitting a few hundred yards away for a long time. By separating the genuine seekers from the rest of the world, Baba wanted them to maintain a purer and positive state of mind and not to get contaminated by the negative thoughts of others as usually happens in social interactions. Baba used to render advice in the same or similar line to different devotees e. g. to keep one’s promise always, to make adequate payment for the services received from any person, to tolerate and not to quarrel even if provoked, to avoid speaking ill of others, to avoid differentiating among human beings on the grounds of material or social differentiation etc. and finally to visualise the presence of God in every object, every thought and every feeling.

All religious rituals including Poojas, Aartis and Parayanas, etc. are methods of human evolution at the first stage. Evolution of the thought process of mind in itself is the intermediary stage and emancipation of the soul through realization of God is the third and final stage in the spiritual journey of the soul. Since the omniscient Baba could easily read through the thoughts of all His devotees, He could prescribe the methods of thought control and spiritual evolution to each devotee, specific to him.

History shows that it is the positive forces of human minds that had created mighty civilizations and it is the negative forces of human minds that had brought about the total destruction of their own civilization as had happened in Rome, Egypt, Peru etc. We see the world as our mind visualises it and our visualisation is limited and often distorted. We see the world with a fixed kaleidoscope from a certain angle. If the kaleidoscope is rotated, then different forms and patterns of life would appear. Since each individual sees life from a certain fixed angle, each experiences a specific pattern, the pattern of life experienced by him seems to be the only truth. Let alone the people with a predominantly evil nature, even people with the best of qualities suffer from this limitation of mental fixity. It is seen that at times the best qualities of an individual, become the greatest block in his evolution in certain situations. For example, there was a kind person who used to help every one. He had the expectation, as is usually the case with human beings that others would be equally kind to him and reciprocate, in his bad times. But when he was in distress every one did not render the required help in the manner and to the extent he had rendered to them. As a result, he started questioning the very plinth of kindness and decided not to help others as he used to do earlier. Now his proactive kindness turned to reactive narrow-mindedness. His evolved quality of natural benevolence was blocked and the evolution process of mind slowed down. No doubt as a worldly-wise person he went a step forward but in his spiritual evolution he had gone a step backward. If he had the flexibility of mind to accept the imperfection in others without passing value judgement over the imperfect conduct of others, he would have been happier and more evolved. The lesson to learn is that howsoever perfect one claims to be, the universal nature (containing both so called perfect and imperfect aspects), does not give a license to any one condemn others, howsoever, imperfect. Therefore, the wise ones have proclaimed that one may hate sin but not the sinner. Baba unequivocally declared that when any one condemned any one else, his feelings were hurt.

Some psycho-analysts hold the view that inflexible perfectionists suffer psychological stress the most as they find it difficult to adjust with the imperfect traits in the character of others with whom they interact. Such persons are, sometimes, highly creative because of their sense of perfection but nevertheless they suffer the most due to social maladjustment. This problem of human beings is not limited to this category alone. It is more or less with every one to some extent. The fundamental problem with the magnificent human being is that each person considers himself to be the centre of the Universe – the little Universe he has created for himself. Therefore, he desires that every thing around him should fall in line with the requirements of that little Universe. They are not prepared to visualise themselves as an infinitesimally small particle in the vast Universe with millions and millions of ever changing patterns. These millions of little Universes juxtaposed in the social fabric of our complex world try to clash with each other and to pull each other apart by the gravitational force of their atomic individualism or ego. The Sadgurus have always tried to give simple solutions to this complex problem.

If we follow the prescriptions of Baba, as contained in Shri Sai Satcharitra our thought process can go through a qualitative change and we can have a clearer picture of the world around us. It will not only do good to us but also to others around us. Therefore, when reading Shri Sai Satcharitra or other literature on Baba, our thoughts should always be focused on this aspect of conscious mental evolution that Baba repeatedly taught and exemplified through his own conduct..”…….


FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI

……“As for worldly matters, naturally in the position of a judge, he had not much trouble, though on account of his increasing family burdens, he had demands and burdens. But Rege never troubled Baba with prayers for worldly gain or support, for instance, in matters of promotion, etc. He had his income from property and insurance. He was quite content with the provision for the present and the future. If need arose, somehow money was coming in, and Rege had nothing to complain of.

Baba's kindness and provision for Rege's welfare had no limit. Rege says that it is not possible to give out all his experiences, but about Baba's method of communication, he gives a classification. There are three forms. The first is in the active waking state. When the sishya is in difficulties or Baba wants his sishya to take a particular course, the sishya gets an inspiration as to what course should be adopted and the feeling that that is Baba's inspiration. That is quite enough, and is verified by the events in his own case. When he was at the Ayi's house, he would feel that Baba called him, and would go up to the Mosque and find that Baba was actually waiting for him there. So, the inspiration really came from Baba.

Baba would give him some songs to sing or some tunes, because both Baba and Rege knew music. The second relates to the sleeping or trance state. Baba would appear in dreams or trances. This would be called Sakshatkara and is considered most impressive and unmistakable. Of course Rege had Baba's Sakshatkaras. In the third method, Baba directed his sishya to go to some other person, who did not even know why the sishya was sent, but who nevertheless benefited the sishya in accordance with Baba's internal and unperceived guidance. Sometimes the person to whom Baba sends a devotee is totally unfit to give any reply, for instance, the rustic girl to whom Das Ganu was sent for interpreting Isavasya Upanishad'.

Mr. Rege tells how he was sent to several persons in the year 1912. He had taken Rs. 100 with him in his pocket to Shirdi. Baba asked for dakshina of Rs. 40 first, again Rs 40, and again the balance of Rs. 20. Then again, he asked for dakshina, and when Rege said he had no more left, Baba said, 'Go and get it'. 'From whom?' asked Rege. The answer was "From Shama", a woefully poor man. When Rege went to Shama and told him that Baba wanted dakshina to be taken from him, Shama replied, 'You do not understand Baba at all. Baba does not care even a rap for your rupees. What he wants is your mind, your heart, your time, and your soul, to be devoted to him. That is the meaning' Rege went back and reported this to Baba.

Baba smiled and said, 'Go and ask Kaka (Dixit).' So he went to H. S. Dixit. This was in 1912, when Dixit's practice was extinct. Dixit said that he had no cash and that Baba's direction must be understood as a lesson that Rege should not feel being poor or begging for money or asking for anything else to be a humiliation. "Don't feel it to be infra dig to do anything for the Master", he said. Dixit said that Rege should never esteem himself to be above begging. So Rege went back and reported to Baba. Again Baba smiled and said, 'Go to Nana (Chandorkar)'.

Rege went to N. G. Chandorkar at Khandoba's temple where he was reading religious books with the learned Upasani Sastri. Chandorkar then sketched out plans and schemes and showed how he himself arranged to bring a lump sum, left one half of it at Kopergaon, went on giving dakshina after dakshina, and at the opportune moment sent for his reserve in Kopergaon. Chandorkar in his worldly wisdom said, 'You must act like that'. Rege reported this to Baba. Baba sent for Nana Chandorkar and asked first for Rs. 40, again for Rs. 40, and again for the balance of Rs. 20.

Immediately he asked for another Rs. 20 before the Kopergaon reserve would come. Thus Nana was taught a lesson that it was presumption on his part to suppose that he was the great Providence supplying the needs of Baba, which was the impression he had. So, Baba showed how differently demands for dakshina were intepreted by different devotees. Rege concludes that the object of the whole proceeding was to teach lessons to him and to Chandorkar. Baba really cared nothing. at all for money or for presents and wanted only love-deep, intense, passionate, and wholehearted love. ”……


DEVOTEE EXPERIENCE

I am Sai devotee since my childhood. My day starts with Sai prayers. In every distress and trouble Sai helps us always. On Sunday 3rd Sept, 2006, my Daddy suddenly started getting hiccups. He took some home medicine. The whole day he was getting hiccups continuously for 2 - 2 ½ hours. They would stop for some time and then start again for 2 - 2 ½ hours. As it was Sunday, we telephoned the doctor. He told us to give him one tablet.

He took the medicine but that did not help. On Monday morning we took him to the doctor. He took the prescribed medicine, had his lunch and went to sleep. Usually he takes rest only for 2 hours, 1.30 pm to 3.30 pm. That day till 4 o’clock he was fast asleep, it became 4.15 pm but there no sign of his waking up. My sister and I called Daddy, he responded but turn his side and again slept. We waited for another 15 minutes and again called him but again he changed the side and slept.

We found something strange. Immediately we prepared sugar water solution as Daddy is a diabetic patient, but he refused to take it. Somehow we managed to make him to sit and tried giving water but he threw it out of his mouth. I went to call a nearby Doctor who usually comes by 5.30 pm but luckily that day he was there at 4.45 pm. The Doctor checked his diabetes on a glucometer and said it had fallen to 20 and we should rush him to the hospital.

Daddy had become semi unconscious. We called up our cousin brother, who was luckily in a nearby area and reached the hospital before us. Our neighbors helped us to take Daddy to the hospital. Through the traffic jam we managed to reach the hospital. My brother had already met the doctor and kept things ready. Hospital doctors immediately put him on glucose. Within ½ hour after admission he became fully conscious and was surprised that he was in the hospital. His condition was diagnosed as pneumonia patch on his lungs, starting of jaundice, chest congestion. The pneumonia patch had touched the diaphragm, the reason for the continuous hiccups. Because of all these internal complications his sugar levels had become so low.

He was in the hospital for 8 days. Now, he is completely all right. Doctors said diabetes count of 20 is too dangerous and at a count below 30, a person cannot survive. That can even lead to some dangerous side effects. Also, his pneumonia was detected on time. Our saver Sai helped us.

When my daddy was in the hospital, one evening my younger sister was returning home from the hospital. Her leg got stuck in one pothole and she had a fall. Her ankle got twisted and she was unable to get up. She was crossing the lane. Suddenly one rickshaw stood next to her and she somehow managed to get up and get into the rickshaw. The rickshaw driver started the rickshaw without asking her anything. After some time she told him where to take her. She had fractured her leg. After putting plaster on her leg for 1 ½ month, she is okay now. From where did the rickshaw arrive right on time? Who else other than Sai can send help.

By the grace of Baba, both my sister and daddy are fine now.

POEM

What is this Maya Called?

There are no words to talk about your Grace and shining glorious face,
Which would make any heart melt,
Which wards off wicked thoughts.
The eyes become wet just seeing your charming face
And our desire is to keep on looking at you forever.
What is this Maya called?

Wherever we stand in the Samadhi Mandir,
And look at you from any angle
Words cannot describe what we feel
When we come into direct eye-to-eye contact.
What is this Maya called?

Miracles do not need to happen with any lightning/sound or flash,
They are only felt within the heart of an individual.
What is this Maya called?

Shri Pandarinath!
Shri Panduranga!
You give darshan in whatever form a devotee wants.
What is this Maya called?

We do agree you are the wire-puller
And are not surprised to see
Thousands of devotees visiting Your Holy place
Throughout the year
To have a glimpse of their beloved Father
Shri Samartha Sadguru Shirdi Sainath
What is this Maya called?

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 cannot 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 there?
(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.

Lt Col (Retd) RVS Mani, Muscat

DEVOTEES' FORUM

• Excellent piece of advice...This, we must take as directive since we do not understand any other polite language...We Hindus take everything casually...We, Saibaba devotes must have prescribed dress code while going inside a Shri Shirdi Saibaba Temple,
• There should not be pushing around while in queue...
• While in queue we must not even ask the person in front to move forward; let him take his time to understand that devotees are waiting behind him...he must realise this...
• We must not discuss while waiting in the queue, even if we have to wait a while, just quietly recite Sainathai namaha...

Shri Satpathyji should direct and guide us and lay down the procedure..

Ravinder Tikoo, Bangalore


This is my true story. What you plant is what you reap. I planted unfaithfulness towards my wife, I did breach of trust, I broke confidence, I ruined lives & now I am paying for it. It is only my Baba who is there with me at this time. There is no one else to support me & get my family & life back on track.
Please be careful of your action.
• if you want to do bad for someone try to push it back or ignore it, it will save you in future
• if you want to do good for someone do it right away you never will have time to do it later or not.
Please be careful. He is watching us always.

This is really a work which must be called as "Baba Jee Ki Marzi Se" in fact this is a great job done. The shower of holy blessings of Babajee with his presence in the heart was felt while going through this masterpiece named as Heritage of Shirdi Sai newsletter Sai E-zine.
I must say please carry on with this work and make others feel His holy presence which can change the way of living of everyone. The motive is to change the content inside - not the container......
