FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE
has shown that the Divine Incarnations (Avataras), Perfect
Masters (Sadgurus) and other spiritual personalities are
capable of bringing about great and long term social changes
at different places and at different times on this earth.
Some of them like Lord Buddha, Lord Christ, Prophet Mohammad
and Guru Nanak also created new religions. Others have
shown new paths for betterment of the human race and spiritual
evolution of the souls coming into contact with them.
When they carry on their Divine and universal duties as
ordained by God the Almighty they are automatically supported
by the mighty and unseen powers of nature.
The possession and use of such powers is natural to them.
These powers are far superior in nature to the powers
that all others species, including human beings, possess.
These are called 'Divya' (Divine) powers. From the word
'Divya' comes the words 'Devata' in Hinduism. While working
in a human form these spiritual entities display the powers
and characteristics of both human beings and Devatas as
per their will and requirement. Just as the human beings
have superior power and intelligence over all the other
species on this earth, so also these powerful divine personalities
possess superior intelligence and vast capabilities much
beyond the capabilities of human beings.
a man does not always have to think that he knows veterinary
or medical science when treating an animal, similarly
these Masters are not aware of their divine powers when
they are helping or treating human beings and other species
whether in their worldly problems or in their spiritual
evolution. They use these powers spontaneously for the
benefit of others without expecting any material returns.
It is their magnificent quality of kindness that propels
them to help others and suffer for them. On the other
hand, human beings, when they come face-to-face with such
mighty personalities are utterly surprised and moved to
see the miraculous play of spiritual powers.
Further, the kindness with which Masters use these powers
for their benefit brings forth an emotional upsurge in
their hearts. This is beginning point of Bhakti. This
is what used to happen to anyone and everyone who came
in contact with Shri Shirdi Sai Baba when He was in His
human embodiment at Shirdi. Baba's capabilities to give
immediate and long-term redress to any problem of any
person (both temporal and spiritual) was so vast and effective,
that even the most powerful and capable personalities
of that time like Khaparde, Buti, Kaka Saheb Dixit, Chandorkar
etc. looked insignificant before Him.
Forgetting their material or social status they had to
surrender to Him. Being totally overpowered by the personality
of Shri Sai Nath Maharaj and deeply indebted to Him for
His kindness, these devotees used to spread His glory.
They spread the name of Baba mostly through word of mouth
and through varied social interactions, whenever they
got a chance to do so. Ardent devotees like Dasganu Maharaj
spread His name in the rural areas of Maharashtra through
kirtans, ballards and folklores.
During the period when Baba was at Shirdi (between 1860-1918),
there were a very small number of newspapers and journals
in Maharashtra. Study of such newspapers and magazines
shows that during that time, Baba's name rarely appeared
in them. After Baba left His body in 1918 “Sai Leela”
an official publication (magazine) of Shri Shirdi Sai
Baba Sansthan came to life and this continues to be published
till today. The prominent devotees of Baba like Dasganu,
Chandorkar, Kaka Saheb Dixit and many others who were
instrumental in spreading the name of Baba were extremely
cautious and truthful in uttering or writing anything
pertaining to Baba.
The two magazines, Sai Prabha (1915-1919) and Shri Sai
Leela (1923 till date) were not commercial ventures. Neither
the publishers, nor the editors or the writers had any
commercial angle attached to it. It was out of pure love
towards Baba and the real life experience they had with
Him, that they wrote on their experiences in these magazines
for the benefit of other devotees. They did not brag about
the information they shared with others or their proximity
to Baba. They did not write about any imaginary / concocted
miracles. They did not indulge in bringing out competitive
marketing serials based on half baked truths or speculations
on Baba, as is sometimes being done in audio/video channels
Today nine decades after Baba's Mahasamadhi, His name
continues to spread far and wide in India and abroad.
As Baba had forecast, Shirdi is thronging with devotees
from all over the globe and the number is ever on the
increase. Hundreds of temples have come up in His name
in India and abroad. The number of commercial movies,
TV serials, magazines, books, audio-video cassettes pertaining
to Baba in different languages is too numerous to be listed.
Stories on Baba's life, news and views on activities pertaining
to the Sai movement today and experiences of devotees
can be seen through these audio/video/print medias. Some
of them are good.
However, what is sometimes lacking is a truthful and correct
projection of Baba. Some people are perhaps not aware
of the fact that a real Spiritual Master like Baba does
not need a purely commercial venture to attract His devotees
towards Him. By their subtle divine power, Spiritual Masters
can draw any soul from any distance by their sheer will.
This is what used to happen at Shirdi during Baba's time.
Baba has clearly mentioned that He can draw His devotees
even from beyond the seven seas whenever He willed. A
true devotee who has full faith in Baba would avoid projecting
Baba through imaginary or concocted stories of miracles.
Such false projections sends a wrong message to the devotees
and works as a hindrance in their correct appreciation
of the personality of the Master, His philosophy and His
On this day of Guru Poornima the devotees should pray
the Master to give them the correct emotional and mental
capabilities to understand Him through their inner perception.
The devotees should not condition their mind through whatever
they read, see and hear superficially but should read
Shri Sai Sat Charitra regularly and concentrate on the
divine attributes (qualities) of Baba and meditate on
His form. ”…….
FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI
In another way also Baba granted this identity. That was
in about 1916. Rege had gone to Shirdi and was staying
with Ayi. When Baba was alone, he sent for him, and said,
‘The key of my treasury is now placed in your hands.
Ask anything you want, Rs. 5, Rs. 100 or what you like.
I will give it to you.’ This was a temptation, but
Rege declined to ask for anything.
Baba knew what was necessary, good or useful for Rege
and it was for Baba to decide what to give or what to
withhold, and not for Rege to ask. So, Rege would not
ask. Then Baba held him by the chin and coaxed him to
ask for something, because he was anxious to give. Then
Rege said, ‘Is it agreed, Baba that you grant anything
I ask for?’ ‘Yes,’ Baba answered. Rege
said, ‘Then Baba I want this. In this and in any
future birth that may befall me, you should never part
from me. You should always be with me’. Baba was
full of joy and petting him said ‘Yes, I shall be
with you, inside you and outside you, whatever you may
be or do’ Rege felt then and feels even that now,
Baba is always with him. Baba also shows his form visibly
to him occasionally to reassure him and guide him.
This statement that Baba is always with Rege, and Rege
always with Baba, came from Sai Baba in a very forceful
way again in 1916. On one occasion Baba showed his deep
concern for M. B. Rege’s comfort and happiness.
It was about a child that was the first child that Rege
had. When in 1914 a child was still in the womb, both
Rege and his wife went to Baba for darsan. Then Baba cryptically
said, ‘You have got one of my gifts with you.’
When the child was born, it was taken to Baba. Baba then
caressed it, and asked Rege, ‘Is the child yours
or mine?’ ‘Yours Baba,’ replied Rege.
Then Baba said, ‘Keep him with you as a charge from
might wonder, with what object this was said. Baba fully
knew what the future of that child was to be and how it
was to leave Rege and cause him much pain, being his very
first child. A year and a half after that, the child got
pneumonia, and the doctors were saying that the danger
was over. But just then it started sinking. Rege took
the child to the prayer room in his house and prayed to
Baba. 'The child is yours, Baba. So, please take it and
give it rest in you. But having given it its worldly existence,
I undertake all its karma', said Rege.
Rege put his palm on the head of the child. There was
a smile on its face, a last gasp and the crown of the
head was drawn in with a hiss, just the way in which the
yogis lives would depart, namely, through the crown of
the head. To confirm his idea that the child had sadgati,
he had an experience, a couple of months later, when he
went to Shirdi. As he was in Baba’s presence, the
latter asked some one, ‘Who is this man? Where does
he live?’ pointing to Rege.
said, ‘This is Rege and he lives at Indore.’
‘No,’ said Baba, ‘You are wrong. He
is always here and I am with him.’ Next Baba asked,
‘Has he any children?’ The persons present
said, ‘No Baba; his child has just now died.’
Baba retorted, ‘Died? No, no. I will tell you what
happened. The child was mine, and this man agreed to keep
it. One day he said, "You keep him with you, and
I shall take up his karma." So, I took the child
and kept it here pointing to his heart’. Baba added,
‘He shall be here eternally’. Eternal with
Guru-God means undoubted sadgati. That is how Baba tried
to fore-warn Rege from the beginning about this loss of
his first child and how he consoled him by giving the
child sadgati. This being a memorable event is referred
to in Sai Sahasranama in the following words: Rege Sisoh
Tathandasya Sada Sadgati Dayakah.
for worldly matters, naturally in the position of a judge,
he did not have 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, as in matters of promotion.
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
it is Baba’s inspiration. That is quite enough and
it is verified by the events in his own case.
When he was at 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 shishya
was sent, but who nebertheless benefitted the shishya
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
the Isha Upanishad.”……
have been waiting for my Australian permanent residency
(PR) approval since May 2007. I have fulfilled the requirements
and sorted all the documents due to Baba's grace (long
story). Due to some recent financial problems in my life,
I have been completely frustrated.
was stuck in my current job for the past three years.
A year ago I received a job offer for similar work but
with higher pay and it was a huge decision for me so I
had asked Baba through chits. Baba said "no"
to it and I couldn't understand why; so I did what Baba
said and stuck to my job. Then after applying for my PR,
I didn't ask Baba again about changing jobs as I thought
that I might as well stick to this job now until I get
my PR approval.
21st November 2007, our employers told us that our company
(in Sydney) had been bought out by a Melbourne based company.
We would get a redundancy compensation package and could
either join the other company in Melbourne or just find
a new job. If I had quit this job I would not have received
the redundancy compensation. I was a bit happy, but there
was still the problem that my PR had not been approved
yet so I could not go to India for vacations, nor could
I apply for good jobs as a resident has better job opportunities.
day, 22nd November 07 (Thursday) I emailed an officer
from the immigration department to check the status of
my application. The officer called me back in the afternoon
and told me that PR had already been granted to me on
the 8th of November (Thursday) and an email was also sent
to me (but I never received it). I went home to get my
passport and to take it to the immigration office, which
is right next to my office building. When I reached home
I found a letter from my bank to say that they can increase
my credit card limit if I want. I got the immigration
office to stick the PR label the same day and I was overjoyed
because everything was happening on a Thursday; I had
been praying to Baba since a long time that it would be
okay if he gives me an approval a bit late, but let the
news only come on a Thursday - and it happened.
that I went to the Sai temple, as I usually did on Thursday,
and I just couldn't thank him enough for always taking
care of me like a mother. My mother rang me and told me
that after my father came to know about the news of my
PR approval he booked a bus ticket from Mumbai to Shirdi
the same night. My younger brother had also recently been
to Shirdi of his own accord. Whatever reason makes us
go to Shirdi makes me happy. I just thought of sharing
my happiness with you all.

I want fortune & fame
Is this our actual aim
I want fun & want to play
Is that the reason we get another day
God wants us to have freedom
Not for this country but from this cruel earth
That is why we have got birth
The Almighty wants us to be free
Just like a bee
We need to solve this problem fast before our days are
And an explosion finishes the earth, which is so vast
We have got the tools
But are sitting like fools
The procedure is to find a Spiritual Master
And be free a little faster
This is true believe it or not
One day there will be a shot
And we will know
That all our births, opportunities
Given by God were a waste
Some will be free some will not be
Free I want to Be
to the World so that they can realise that this time is
very less. We need to take instant action.

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION
AND KARMA, WHICH ONE SHOULD HAVE PRIORITY
One who engages only in right actions is said to be upholding
the Dharma or Values. Right conduct and right actions
would help him, who wants to progress in his spiritual
quest. Actions form an integral part of human beings.
As Lord Shri Krishna says in Bhagvad Geeta that Man does
not attain freedom from action (culmination of the discipline
of Action) without entering upon action; nor does he reach
perfection (culmination of the discipline of knowledge)
merely by ceasing to act (ch 3 : stz 4). Basically there
is action even in inaction.
four objects in a man’s life viz Dharma, artha,
kama and moksha can be attained by following any one of
the following paths viz, karma, dhyan, yoga and bhakti.
In present context it becomes impossible to sit in one
place and concentrate on God or practice yoga whereas
Bhakthi or pure devotion is achieved only when a man understands
the mystic and divine creation of the God. This requires
knowledge and also ability to perceive God in all beings
which is difficult in the present world. This leaves man
with one choice, Karma. Karma is another way to reach
the spiritual goal. Karma means engaging in actions which
would enable a man to achieve all the four objectives
in his life.
One may ask how can performing action enable a man to
achieve spiritual progression? All actions that man engages
in must be done consciously with the objective of helping
not just himself or his kith and kin but also fellow beings.
A spiritual man understands that all pain and pleasure
is the act of God and that to help others and ease their
pain in the time of need, share the wealth among needy
and extend love beyond his family members and consider
everybody to the embodiment of the Lord such person is
said to behold dharma, and every action of his drives
him to achieving his chief objectives in life.
Satcharita tells us how to uphold dharma by right conduct;
it tells us how should a man conduct himself in the world
while engaging in his day to day activities. All actions
of a sincere devotee arise for the purpose of following
the Dharma. Dharma and Karma are two sides of the same
coin and go hand in hand. Indulging in one leads to establishing
In order for a man to uphold Dharma he has to take the
help of his intellect and engage in actions (karma) that
would enable him to act in a way to be able to establish
righteousness in his life. Right action leads to right
conduct which thereby establishes correct values in life.
In Chapter 1 of Sai Satcharita, Hemadpant writes about
Baba, who says that Knowledge or Self-realization is not
possible, unless there is the prior act of grinding of
all our impulses, desires, sins. The action of grinding
our undesirable virtues constitutes Karma.
Satcharita has the life stories of followers of Baba who
in their simple love for Baba and engaging in their activities
have attained the chief objectives of their life. Baba,
the Lord God on this earth has set an example for His
followers to act accordingly. In answer to the prayers
of the sincere and humble devotees, God comes to the earth
in the form of a saint to remove their problems and guide
them in the right path as promised by lord Krishna in
Bhagvat Geeta For the protection of the virtuous, for
the extirpation of evil-does, and for establishing Dharma
(righteousness) on a firm footing, I am born from age
to age (Bhagvad Geeta ch 4 : Stz 8).
trouble with man is that when he knows or learns too much
he thinks he knows it all. One drawback of a learned man
is his inflated pride or ego. P.K Shaw once said the trouble
with the fertile mind is that the weeds grow as prolific
as the pastures. The weeds, in the spiritual context are
ego, pride, and anger at not being acknowledged that he
is more learned than others. One might wonder, being a
divine man, Baba could have sat at one place without having
to indulge in any action but why did He not do so?
is the purpose behind such an action from Baba? The answer
is simple, Baba wanted to set an example for His followers
that one has to indulge in action in order to achieve
the spiritual goal. Also Baba wanted to teach His followers
that one should use intelligence to discriminate from
right action from wrong and always consciously serve Baba
by serving His children. Events in the life of Baba, as
depicted in Sai Satcharita remind us that one should remain
unperturbed in the face of adverse situations, Baba was
called a mad fakir, He was stoned, and when He went to
collect oil from shopkeepers to light the lamps in His
masjid, they refused to give any oil. Inspite of all these
hurdles Baba moved not an inch from His routine. He did
what He was doing everyday. Of course being a divine satpurusha,
He was able to light the lamps with water.
Satcharita shows that if one were sincere in devotion
and love towards Guru or God then all the powers of the
God will come to such a person without him striving for
them. Baba also showed us how to conduct oneself as a
devotee and as a disciple in the story of Pseudo-Guru
Javhar Ali who was puffed with pride about his learnedness
and even called Baba his disciple. Baba knew the defects
of the so called Guru, still He never disrespected him,
observing carefully His duties. He even served the Master
in various ways. This shows the humility and simplicity
of Baba. In order for a man to achieve the highest goal
in life one has to be humble and sincere in their quest
actions (prarabdha karma) performed today form the basis
of the life we lead tomorrow or in next birth. All the
examples in Sai Satcharita point us to one direction -
that Karma has a priority in our spiritually quest. Doing
right actions would enable us to uphold right values.
bless us and guide us always in doing right actions to
