FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE

……“However they work mostly through a number of intermediary workers, who are spiritual personalities at different stages of evolution both for training them and also for using them for specific jobs. These are addressed by different names as Mahatma, Yogi, Muni, Sanyasi in Hinduism and Awaliya, Pir, Mazoob or Kamil by the Sufis. To realize God one has to go through many stages of evolution. After reaching the seventh stage of spiritual evolution they are known to be in a state of ‘Paramhamsa’ or ‘Brahmistha’ or ‘Brahmabhoot’.

Once in this spiritual level, they are in the state of Sat-Chit-Anand i.e. God-State having His infinite power, knowledge and happiness. The spiritual powers in the other six stages carry out the work entrusted to them by the Sadgurus either directly or indirectly. Except a few at a higher stage of evolution, most of these intermediary workers may not even know the source of their motivation and the energy they get to undertake such big jobs affecting the lives of hundreds and thousands of people.

They work like possessed persons, under the mighty influence of the Sadguru. Many of them when drawn by the master, start behaving in a manner not experienced before and at times they act in an unusual manner. Their internal thought process goes through a lot of change. The Master creates within them the qualities of love, sacrifice and forbearance.

The entire personality of the disciple gets evolved in association with the Sadguru. History has shown that even the biggest sinners became saints in later life due to the play of Guru Shakti in them. This is what is called the ‘Mercy of the Master’ or ‘Guru Kripa’. They are the children of destiny working under the Sadguru and receive all their energy and powers from him. On the other hand the Sadguru becomes responsible for providing them with all the needs of life and also protection.

Some of these workers or disciples directly communicate with the Sadguru in His astral form. To thousands of people they give direct help towards evolution of their temporal and spiritual life. But to many more they work as invisible helpers affecting them through their thought process. Lots of people get direction in dreams and others get unexpected help and direction, which, logically, cannot be explained.

Due to their total attachment with the Sadguru their physical, astral and mental bodies also get linked with the physical, astral and mental bodies of the Sadguru. Their mutual bond of love is so strong that at times unknowingly they start functioning in the same manner as their Sadguru. These children of Sadguru who in Hinduism are known as ‘Ankita Santana’ (i. e. earmarked children to take the role of the father at a later point of time), when doing any work under the command of the Guru or for His purpose are endowed with the required powers and energy to control all living forces including human beings and material forces around.

These are not their original powers but are powers delegated by the Sadguru. Their words of blessing invoked in the name of the Sadguru can bring down an out-pouring of divine blessing from the Sadguru. Some of them are so close to the Sadguru that even their physical features exhibit the physical features of the Master.

The ‘Sadguru blesses’ means, he charges the devotee with some amount of His spiritual power through the medium of speech, touch, look or even thought. The Body, Mind, Astral body of these workers is used by the Sadguru for radiating His spiritual powers to other less evolved disciple devotees. That is why when people meet these children or ‘charged men’ of the Sadguru they get attracted towards them and in return receive the divine blessings of the Sadguru through them.

These intermediary workers are given specific duties by the Sadguru, commensurate with the levels of their spiritual development and capacity. None of these workers can claim these powers to be his own even if he can create certain miracles. They cannot demand such powers from the Sadguru. It is entirely on the mercy of the Sadguru to decide at what point of time such powers will be endowed on them. Since these intermediary workers are not as perfect as the Sadgurus, there are chances that they might misuse the power, which will have an adverse effect on the lives of thousands of people coming in their contact.

That is why the Sadguru is aware about what these workers think and do at all moments. Whenever any such worker or devotee is about to misuse any of his powers, the Sadguru has a way of stopping it, otherwise the amount of harm that can occur to human beings is unimaginable. Would any of these workers, out of anger, curse anyone, it is bound to produce adverse effect just as his blessings in the name of Sadguru can produce beneficial effects. Would any of these workers misuse his powers, he will have to suffer the results.

Some of them fall from the ladder of evolution and they will have to start again moving upwards from that point. It may take a few years or lives for him to come back to the stage of evolution from which he had fallen. That is why the Sadguru empowers only a handful of such devotees who have perfect mental equilibrium to the extent that even if harmed, they do not react negatively. It is this level of patience that the Sadguru needs in His disciples before drawing them closer for His use. Besides the Sadguru there are many other types of Gurus.

They are necessary for different kinds of human requirements. They can be ‘Kulaguru’ (Guru of the family), ‘Siksha Guru’ (teacher imparting formal knowledge) or even a Mantra Guru (a Guru imparting Mantra to a disciple) and others. But they cannot be called Sadgurus as they cannot give God realization to the devotees. The Sadguru carries the essence of all other Gurus. His ultimate function in relation to human beings is to evolve the souls to the best of their potentiality so that they can realize the over-soul, that is God the Almighty and get out of the miseries of the cycle of birth and death.".........


FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI

……“ Two very important things about Khaparde are not found detailed in the diary, viz the facts of Mrs. G. S. Khaparde’s previous births and previous service to Baba, and Baba’s withdrawing the plague from his son Balwant's body to himself. The last is to be found in Shama's statement (See Dev. Exp.). From Dec. 1911 for 3 months plague raged at Shirdi and Balwant, son of Khaparde, had an attack.

There was the bubo and fever, and the mother of the patient went to Baba with tears asking whether it was to sacrifice her child that she had come to Shirdi. Baba spoke in parables assuring her that all would be well. She could not understand him and later Baba showed on his own person bubos and told her that he had to bear all these to save her son. He also said that he had slived Balwant and that his orders were supreme, Ajna Apratihata. Accordingly Balwant recovered and so also Baba.

This reminds one of a similar sacrifice of Baba on behalf of another devotee. Mrs. Tarabai Sadahsiv Tarkhad of Poona came to Shirdi with a long-standing eye trouble which her doctor could not diagnose or cure. She came to Shirdi and sat before Baba. Baba cast his glance at her eyes and her eyes ceased to pain or water and Baba's eyes were watering. That was an end to her eye trouble, and she wondered how instantaneously Baba worked the cure of a disease which baffled doctors. Similarly Noverkar with high fever sent his son with Rs. 500 to Baba. Baba received the sum and at once limbs began to shiver. Baba explained that he had to bear the burdens of his devotees. Noverkar was of course cured.

In the case of Khaparde, Baba mentioned no doubt the rinanubandha noted already in this chapter. The most interesting statement of rinanubandha was in respect of Mrs Khaparde. One day when a number of naivedyas were placed one after another before Baba he did not touch anyone of them. When Mrs. Khaparde's naivedya was brought, he at once put it into his mouth.

Then Shama, who occasionally took liberties with Baba, asked why he was so partial to Mrs. Khaparde's naivedya and Baba gave an account of Mrs. Khaparde's love and service to him birth after birth. Baba said, ‘She was formerly a cow of a bunya and gave (me) plenty of milk. Then she was born of a mali (gardener) and later went to a Kshatriya. Then she married the bunya. Then she was born a Brahmin.

After a long spell of time, I am seeing her again, and the food she gives me is sweet (with her love)’. Mrs. Khaparde's prema more than Mr. Khaparde's self-interested visit to Shirdi it was that operated powerfully on Baba and made him take so much trouble for each member of that family, Baba did not give any mantra upadesa except in exceptional cases. Baba gave it to Mrs. G. S. K. thus: Go on saying “Rajah Ram, Rajah Ram”.”……


DEVOTEE EXPERIENCE

I wish to share one of the countless blessings Baba has and is showering on my family and me. Since a very young age, my mother has had a chronic condition in both her eyes called glaucoma. She has lost vision in one eye and has reduced vision in the other. A couple of years ago her vision was threatened by a worsening of glaucoma due to a sudden increase in the pressure within her eyes.

The doctors and specialists tried all the latest treatments available and they could not bring the pressure down. Faced with the prospect of uncontrolled increase in pressure within the eyes leading to total blindness, we were in great distress. I was inconsolable and cried a lot. I turned to Baba for help and prayed to him with all my heart. I then opened Sai Satcharita and the page that opened up was from chapter thirteen which happens to be “More Sai leelas - Diseases cured".

The words that my eyes fell upon were “All the stories show that, the real medicine that cured various diseases permanently, was Baba's word and grace, and not any medicines or drugs." These words told me that all my worries were in Baba's hands and that He would look after my mother. I lit a lamp and prayed to Baba daily, crying for help. My prayer to Baba was that my mother should have her vision to the end of her lifetime.

During that period I also happened to see a photo of Baba on my computer, which had one eye partly shaded and the other eye fully bright. I immediately felt that Baba was telling me that my mother's vision was going to be saved. At that time my parents happened to be introduced to an Ayurvedic doctor from a hospital in Kerala through their family doctor. This Ayurvedic physician gave them tremendous hope and asked them to come to Kerala for treatment.

My parents went to Kerala and stayed there for a nearly a month in a room provided by the hospital. The pressure in my mother's eyes came down to the normal level and was stabilized, saving her vision. A patient in the room next to their’s left. My parents went in to have a look at the empty room to see if it was more convenient than the one they were staying in. The room was empty, except for a white statue of Baba, which had been left behind. When my parents told me about this over the phone, my joy knew no bounds.

Baba had shown His presence in our lives in such a beautiful way. My parents took the statue with them and have it in their puja place at home. My mother, who had not prayed to Baba before, now fully believes in Him. She took Baba's statue with her on a trip to USA when she went to spend time with my sister. At a Sai temple in USA, my mother felt Baba was looking at her and talking to her, telling her that she had finally come to see Him.

I have told my mother how I prayed to Baba and now that she has Baba's blessings with her, there is no place for fear in her life. Her vision today is Baba's grace. What more can I say about Baba's love and compassion? He is the one who lights our path when there is darkness all around.

I read an article in a previous issue of this newsletter in which a devotee says that we only look at a small part of our lives, but Baba looks at the whole picture- past, present and future and blesses us with what is best for us. From our side we can only do our best and leave the rest to Baba and He will see us through, not only for this lifetime but through all the lifetimes to come. Everyday before I leave home I say "Sarvam Sai Padarpanam" and that's where my life is - at His feet. Om Sri Sai. Om Sri Sai.

POEM

I seek You my Lord

I seek You Lord in the shrine for I need to be with You
I look for Thee hither and thither and find only a statue
Then I hear the voice within urging this soul
Ye weak heart look for the Lord with love,
and ye are bound to find Him in there.

I place my hand on my heart and hear You loud when it beats
I look for Ye in the silence of night
and find Thee in the brightly lit moon and stars
I seek You in the mountains
and find Thee in the chirping of the birds

I seek Thee in the ocean,
and find Ye in the gentle lapping of the water on shore
I look for Thee on the hot scorching sunny day
only to find Ye under the shade of the tree.
Oh ye silly heart and you thought ye could find Him only in the shrine?

I question myself, truly there must be a place the Lord does not like?
I look around and I feel lost in the chaos of the traffic and noise of people
and think surely Lord will not dwell amidst the yelling, madness, and rush?
Then I find Thee are the life in the chaos, and creation around me
Ah my Lord I now know You are everywhere,
Fool that I am, I thought You are confined to a shrine.

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION

LOVE OF HUMANITY IS LOVE OF GOD

If we love God then it automatically follows that our love extends to humanity. Humanity is creation of THAT creator. Not loving HIS creation would mean disregarding and disrespecting HIS existence thereby implying that our love for HIM is superficial.

Often we hear learned people saying that they love God and love everyone. However, it is easier said than done. The very same people will be seen judging others, telling others what is wrong in their behavior and how to behave rightly etc without realizing that each and everyone behaves in a particular manner due to various reasons (like Prarabdh) which we cannot contemplate. We do not know why a person behaves in a particular manner.

Loving God means accepting each and everyone just the way they are and not passing any judgments. Everything that God has created is in perfection. All that we see around us and also what we cannot see or feel through our five senses is result of that Divine Will. Therefore, it has to be PERFECT.

What is perfect need not be judged. Our Shastras are full of stories where one persons bad behaviour (like Kekayi in Ramayana) has resulted in destruction of demons. With our limited capabilities we cannot judge what the cause of someones action is and what will be the ultimate result of that action. Keeping this in mind, if we stop judging others, and love everyone equally we will be reflecting back what we have got - Gods Love to back to HIS creation.

True divine love is impartial. It knows no difference. The Sun, the Moon, the Trees, the Nature offers its comfort & grace to all without any discrimination. We are also part of this creation and most intelligent of all then why do we distinguish when it comes to giving out love. It could be because we consider ourselves and others separate from each other. This is mine that is theirs etc.

While interpreting a verse of The Bhagvad Gita, SaiBaba has very kindly explained that the disciple also is in fact of the same swarupa. But, it is overlaid by the effect of the samaskaras of innumerable births in the shape of ignorance, which hides from his view that he is Shuddha Chaitanya (see B.G. Ch. V-15). As stated therein, he gets the impressions - "I am Jiva, a creature, humble and poor."

The Guru has to root out these offshoots of ignorance and has to give upadesh or instruction. To the disciple, held spell-bound for endless generations by the ideas of his being a creature, humble and poor, the Guru imparts in hundreds of births the teaching - "You are God, you are mighty and opulent." Then, he realizes a bit that he is God really. In a state of ignorance, the human believes that I am a Jiva (creature), Body is the soul (I am the body), God, world and Jiva are different, I am not God, Not knowing, that body is not the soul and Not knowing that God, world and Jiva are one. Unless these errors are exposed to his view, the disciple cannot learn what is God, jiva, world, body; how they are inter-related and whether they are different from each other, or are one and the same.

Our body is vehicle of our soul and our soul is part of Divine Spirit. We have what God has but in our ignorance we fail to understand this and feel that we are different, separate and better than others. When in ignorance we compare ourselves with others we are admitting that we are separate from each other which is not true.

Now that we realize we are God really, it means the whole humanity is God indeed. If that be so we are all One with the creation and creator. If there is no separation, there can be no comparison and difference. All deserve love without any discrimination.

It is a fact that divinity is embedded in our inner being (we being his creation). Thus, we have vast ocean of divine love flowing gently within us. We all are full of Love and we are not even aware of this. All we have to do is to accept this fact, realize it, tap it and shower our inner divine Love outwards - towards whole humanity. What we give out we get back. Therefore, this greatest gift of God that we have- LOVE, is meant to be shared impartially with everyone so that it easily comes back to us too. SOW love REAP love.

Share your views on Topic of Discussion- NEED OF POOJA AND PRAYER


DEVOTEES' FORUM

God will respond to your prayers for succor only when you respond sympathetically to the needs of others. Life should not be wasted in selfish activities, blind to others' distress and deaf to others' groans. Treat joy and grief equally. This, according to Sri Krishna Sai, is equanimity. Practice equanimity - this is the way to win His Grace. You may not be rewarded materially for your compassionate acts but there is no greater reward than the joy that you derive by alleviating others sorrow.

Vishal, Mumbai


Life is a cycle created by God and if you try to change it by incorporating your own innovations, you may break the flow of this cycle. You may either increase the speed of this cycle, and rush to your destiny by losing out the best moments of life or you may completely puncture it and bring your life to a standstill. Hence, never try to change the law of nature – it is indeed, written by God.

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking Heritage of Shirdi Sai team, for putting together this experience of getting in touch with our Sadguru, Shri Sai and the perfect masters through the newsletter Sai E-zine, website www.heritageofshirdisai.org and the Heritage of Shirdi Sai magazine. Like it is said in the Sai Satcharitra, that it is only the Guru, who can take us on the path of Almighty ... to become one in union, similarly it is only Sathpathyji, who could have put together this great work of upgrading the devotees to another level. Thank you.

Perhaps words for this degree of reverence don’t exist. Any work on Sai is a blessing for those benefited. Who knows what part of your work just changes something in others life, only Sai knows. Please keep this up. Thank you.
