FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE

……“The Indian sub-continent was the abode of the great saints and seers during the nineteenth and the first half of the present century. The last century witnessed the emergence of the divine personalities like Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Sri Nigamananda, Sri Lahiri Mahasaya, Sri Lokanath Bramachari, Sri Bamakshepa, Sri Vivekananda and Sri Bisudhananda Saraswati etc. in the north-eastern belt of India.

More specifically they were confined to the areas adjacent to rivers like the Ganges, the Yamuna and the Bramhaputra. Indians are well aware of the divine qualities of these enlightened souls. During that period there also took place the divine manifestations of the seers of the western and central India who used to stay in the basin of the great rivers like the Narmada and the Godavari. But in reality, the seers who have realised the absolute or have reached the highest realm of spiritual attainment are present forever in the whole universe whether in an embodied or in an un-embodied state.

They can operate in the gross, subtle or mental world. By virtue of their divine powers they touch upon both the animate and the inanimate world. They have been defined by different names like Brahmishta Paramahansa or Jeevan-mukta etc. and are free from the chains of life and death. They are in a sublime state of Turiya or have gone beyond it.

They have been actually chosen to execute the divine mission and for that, all categories of these seers, free from individual ego, work together for the execution of the divine-mission. Some of the seers stay away from the crowd and engage their spiritual powers from a secluded corner for the deliverance of the people. This is one of the profiles of their spirit of compassion. They are, indeed, the ambassadors of the divine compassion. A few of them, due to this compassion for humanity, get embodied in the world to uplift the souls of the fallen and the suffering. They are revered as Sadgurus or Perfect Masters by the scriptures.

Five Sadgurus are said to operate in the whole world in a particular milieu and one of them is indeed, a Param Sadguru. They are assisted by 51 spiritually realised Sidhas both corporeal and non-corporeal. Besides this, in this hierarchy there are about 5000 evolved souls stationed in different rungs in the ladders of spiritual enlightenment. This galaxy of seers is said to be functional or operative for a period of seven hundred years.

Q & A

I have known Baba’s love and blessings for many years but since my mother’s death due to cancer I have lost the ability to pray and feel as if nothing is going right for me. Could you please guide?

Love is the inner prayer whether outwardly done or not. Love for Baba is the greatest prayer because prayers are meant for evoking the love of Baba or God. Don’t bother about formal prayers if the mind is in an unhappy state. Read and think about Him as much as you can. Your mother has gone because her time was over as ordained by the law of nature. Even Shri Ramkrishna Paramahansa the Sadguru of Bengal died of throat cancer. Pray Baba for the Sadgati of your mother and to bring stability to your mind.

FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI

……"One must always remember that there are laws of one’s own being and God’s plan for all creatures. Anyone who wishes sincerely to achieve his own soul’s welfare would pause to study what his duties are and seek the help of great ones and Gurus to guide him in his path, then by surrendering himself to great ones, allow his evil vasanas to be crushed out and good vasanas to be developed, and ultimately to get both sets of vasanas which are part of one’s personality to be drowned in the contemplation of the Guru-God.

This is the teaching about Karma by Sadhakas to Baba. The law of Karma is decried by people who do not understand it. Some say that Karma can never be got rid off. There is an element of truth in that statement. But the way in which it is put as above is misleading and wrong. The law of Karma is merely the law of cause and effect. To say that an effect cannot be rectified or modified is absurd. If cause A produces the effect B, it is absurd to say that B must always continue to be B and nothing can change it. Just as cause A produces effect B, cause C impinging upon B may make changes in the effect.

The fact is that most acts done with a purpose are producing certain tendencies and certain other results. One should not confuse the actual result or reward earned by an act with the tendency. The tendency can and should always be met if it is an evil tendency.

To say that karma is inexorable, and nothing can change it, is positively absurd. Generally people think of tendencies when putting forward that proposition and one can be positive that all tendencies may change by stimuli pro¬ducing opposite tendencies. Sinfulness is a tendency and it can always and should always be met by virtuous actions, virtuous contacts, holy readings and Satsang. As for the rewards, it is often said,

Avascyam Anubhoktavyam
Kritam karma scubha Ascubham
.

that is, what one has earned as a reward or punishment for one’s act, good or evil must of necessity be endured. This is generally speaking true. But it is not true in the way in which it is baldly put. A person who commits murder is liable to be hanged. But he may also have other forms of punishment either immediately or later on.

The sentences may be altered, reduced, and even completely condoned on such occasions as the King's Birthday pardons. Therefore, it is not correct to say that the reward or punishment earned by conduct is unalterable. Everything on earth is liable to change or mitigate and if we remember this, we shall be able to meet the objections sometimes raised to Sai Baba’s statement about karma. In the very opening Charters of Baba’s Charters and Sayings, we find Baba’s statement.

‘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 individuals. Regarding birth of a child, death of a son¬-in-law, 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 to Dr. Chidambaram Pillai, Baba explained the correct doctrine. Dr. Pillai had been suffering intensely 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 diseases such as asthma and tuberculosis, Baba first told Shama, ‘In bringing this thief to me what a load of responsibility you are placing on me. Baba meant that the tuberculosis and asthma from which Bhimaji suffered were the result of Bhimaji’s karma in a previous janma consisting of theft. Bhimaji felt Baba’s declaration a blow. At once he surrendered himself to Baba and said, Helper of the helpless! I am helpless. Pray show pity and grace to me.

Then Baba’s tone changed, Baba told him, The Fakir is merciful, and your disease will be cured. He was suffering from the results of 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 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 punishment 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. ”……

 


DEVOTEE EXPERIENCE

I was a devotee of Baba since I was 12 yrs old. We have Baba’s temple next to our house in India. All his Aartis can be heard from our terrace. I some how got attracted to his Aartis. Firstly I use to think that the tune and rhythm sounds really good and that is the reason why I liked his Aartis. Then slowly I started understanding some lyrics even though I don’t know Marathi and started liking them more. Since then I started loving Baba, his teachings, his Sai Satcharitra and bhajans.

Baba gave me everything. I don’t know what to list. He gave me good parents, a good husband and son, good in-laws and all the good things that I wanted. Whenever I have a problem, I sit and look into His eyes in the photo that I have in my house and I somehow feel that he conveys me a message that “This is a testing period for you and definitely you would be out of this in few days” and every time all my problems vanish so fast.

I would like to share one of my many experiences that really touched me a lot.
My son started speaking very late. He did not talk anything until he was 3 years old. All our relatives and everyone in school commented that he may have some speech problem. I never bothered about what everyone said. Instead I used to tell them that I strongly believe in Baba and Baba won’t let my son have any problem and was under the impression that my son would talk when Baba really wanted him to.

After a few days everyone started commenting that apart from speech impairment my son could be having some other problem. One day I was performing my daily Pooja and suddenly started crying and said “Baba, I have no courage to take this anymore.” I started performing my daily Pooja with some unhappiness thinking about my son. After few months on a Thursday morning I saw Baba’s murthi in my dreams telling me that “Hmm…. ok… here after he will be fine.” After this incident, my son really picked up very quickly and within very few days started talking really well. I am highly indebted and thankful to Baba for what He has given me.

“Baba is the Lord of the universe, and the whole universe runs at his will” ---“Baba Bless all of us”

POEM

That Day Divine

The time warp in which I am
Makes me remember that day divine,
The first sight of those love-filled eyes
Makes me forget myself even this day.

The question that came then
And which is with me even now,
Do we deserve to be with "Him"?
But then "His" ways are really great.

How "He" pervaded in my being
and read the thoughts as they came,
but was it mere reading of thoughts?
or was "He" the thoughts "Himself".

Every desire "He" knew and fulfilled
Oh! the wonderful Kalpvriksha !
"He" will surely take us to "Sai"
That first day is joyfully dancing with me.

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION

Truth Ultimately Prevails

Truth or ‘Satya’ means ‘being’ i.e, anything that exists in its actual form is truth. Only God exists and will continue to exist. Rest is all perishable and illusion. God has been, is present and will continue to be present till eternity. Existence of God is beyond comprehension of Human mind. Ultimately God will remain. That is why we say Truth represents God or Truth is God.

Mostly people think of truth as ‘merely speaking truth’ whereas it is a wider term. We have to be truthful in thought, action and belief. There has to be no cover up of I-ness or My-ness. Pursuit of truth is pursuit of God.

Whatever we do for God is true and will bear the fruit. Whatever we do for ourselves and our family will be fruitless. Because ‘We’ are nothing. It is only God. ‘We’ become the truth only when we merge with God. This state is called 'I AM' or 'I AM THAT'.

The crux of The Bhagvad Gita appears to be that a human should offer all his actions, thoughts, feelings and speech to God i.e., even if we are doing some work for our family, we should think we are doing it for God – for the truth.

Sai Baba would often say that cause of suffering is feeling of Doership. When we think of ourselves as ‘karta’ (Doer) we are going away from truth and are thus in misery. To experience the joy, surrender all that you are at the feet of Lord. Nothing belongs to you. By not keeping any possession(s) during his lifetime, Saibaba himself has demonstrated this fact.

SaiBaba considered the whole universe as one form of that ultimate truth. He did not differentiate between His devotees and non-devotees. He always said ‘Sabka Malik Ek’ because ultimately there is only one truth. Sai Baba has advocated single minded devotion towards one’s deity with faith and patience because Devotion is a method of pursuing truth, finding and reaching the truth – the State of Peace and Joy.

Where there is truth, there is God.
Where there is God, there is knowledge
Where there is knowledge, there is Bliss.

This ultimate truth is called Sat-Chit-Anand. We have taken this human body to experience and embrace this truth because ultimately, this human body made of five elements will perish, only Truth will prevail.

DEVOTEES' FORUM

God is to man as magnet is to iron. Why then does He not attract man? As iron deeply imbedded in mud is not moved by the attraction of the magnet so the soul deeply imbedded in Maya (ignorance) feels not the attraction of the Lord. But as when the mud is washed away with water, the iron is free to move, so the soul when by constant tears of prayer and repentance washes away the mud of Maya that makes it cling to the earth, it is soon attracted by the Lord.

Chandra Prakash Kumar

In 1996 in New York , I went to visit a museum and had the following experience. Being a Sai devotee, I wore a Baba pendent around my neck and had a small sticker of His picture on the inside of my bag. As I opened my bag to pull out money for the ticket, the lady behind the counter, who was about 25 years old, held my hand and asked me to step aside. She ushered me into one corner and asked me whose picture was stuck on the flap of my bag.

I was a little surprised and told her that He was our Satguru Shri Sainathji. She urged me to tell her about Him and I was happy to do so. After sometime I asked her why was she making these queries? She said that as a child she suffered from cancer and she started getting dreams in which this Old Man would appear and he slowly cured her of the disease. And after so many years she had seen a picture of the same face! I gave her some photos of Baba and organised a Sai Satcharitra for her. Such is the Glory of Sainath.
