FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE
soon as the child ate the dry fruit, God-consciousness
dawned on him and for about three days he remained in
a state of spiritual ecstasy shedding tears in secluded
places. Obviously Hazrat Abdulla Shah had given Tajuddin
the spiritual powers or consciousness known as “Shaktipata”
in Hindu Yoga system. Thereafter, the child was found
to be always in a state of contemplation in secluded places.
At the age of 18, the financial condition of his maternal
uncle’s house deteriorated due to floods. As a result,
both Baba and his maternal uncle searched for a job. In
1881, at the age of 20, Baba joined the Nagpur Army Regiment.
Soon a contingent of the Regiment, where Baba was serving,
was sent to a place called Sagar.
Sagar, Baba used to manage his duties as an army sepoy,
somehow spending the best of the time in doing namaz and
contemplation. He used to spend most of the nights with
a highly developed spiritual soul known as Hazrat Baud
Saheb, undergoing spiritual practices. Hazrat Baud Saheb
is, therefore, recognised as one of the spiritual masters
of Tajuddin Baba. His absence from the army camp at nights,
and his least regard for the service created problems
from the higher authorities. One day, in a spiritually
intoxicated state, Baba suddenly submitted his resignation
from the army and left the camp.
He then roamed around in the streets of Sagar like a mad
man; without any sense of body. Soon his maternal grandmother
heard of the news and took him away to Kamthi. She tried
to get him cured through doctors and Hakims thinking that
he was a mad. The doctors and Hakims could hardly improve
his condition as Baba Tajuddin’s consciousness had,
by that time transcended the gross and subtle body and
was floating in the vast ocean of divine consciousness
- beyond multiplicism and duality of nature.
has befallen the destiny of many spiritual seekers, children
started throwing stones at him to which he would never
react. The society around him discarded him as useless
for their purpose and declared him as mad and, therefore
humiliated him whenever and wherever they could. However,
miracles also started taking place around him. He would
suddenly tell people about their past and warn them about
day in that Videha state (beyond body state) he approached
a British woman in a naked state. The horrified women
complained to the army authorities about such uncivilized
behaviour. An army officer caught hold of him and got
him admitted in the lunatic asylum of Nagpur on the 26th
of August 1892. This is one of the biggest illusions of
Nature (Maya) as I see it - the mad people of the mad
world declaring the knowledge-incarnate, who had come
to redeem them of their worldly madness, as mad. But how
could the authorities, confine a soul that is in a state
of pure consciousness within the four walls of a lunatic
asylum. As was the practice, the inhabitants of the asylum
used to be locked up in barracks and cells at night. Similarly,
Baba was also put in confinement under strict vigil. ”
Q & A
the path towards Baba if a devotee feels surrounded by
despair, what should he do?
I have said in one
of my poems – “Jab dil udaas ho to Sai ka
naam lena” i.e. “When one feels depressed
one should take the name of Sai”. Human beings have
a tendency to feel depressed at times, when facing the
pain and miseries of life. But, if such feeling of pain
and misery are true, so are the feelings of joy and bliss.
One should see the role of Shri Sai in both the situations.
In happiness without
wasting too much time in rejoicing, if we can help others
in getting the same happiness in Baba’s name or
work for the cause of Baba then the happiness that we
derive will be more lasting. Physical happiness is momentary
and once it is gone it brings sorrow as mind has a tendency
to yearn for the same or more happiness always, which
certainly is not possible in anybody’s life.
Whenever you are in
sorrowful situation remember Baba’s words. “Keep
your balance and see what comes next”. Keeping in
touch with Baba internally and thinking of Him reduce
sorrow. By reading Shri Sai Satcharitra, by singing Baba’s
bhajans the sorrow gets certainly lessened. In bad times
one must read about Baba as much as one can, meditate
on Him, chant His name, sing His devotional songs and
help other people who are in greater distress than us.

FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI
lady is also one of those devotees of Baba who derived
very peculiar and very great advantages, mostly in temporal
matters, but partly in spiritual matters also and, therefore,
her experiences with Baba are taken up here. Her first
introduction to Baba’s name was through her brother-in-law
Sri R. A. Tarkhad of Bombay, Director of a mill there.
had been to Baba, and had very high impression of Baba’s
power and nature, and when he visited his brother’s
house, he spoke of Baba in terms of high praise which
naturally roused Mrs. Sadasiva Tarkhad’s attention
for a special reason. Her little child Nalini Tarkhad
(now a famous film star) had suddenly taken ill at the
age of 15 months, and she was in great perplexity as to
what to do.
of Baba’s fame, she said, ‘If Baba is the
wonderful saint that my brotber¬in-law stated he is,
then he should make the child recover, and if he makes
the child recover, the whole family with the child will
go to Shirdi, and pay their respects to Baba in person’.
Very shortly after the vow was made, the child did recover,
and so, she, her husband, and child went up to Shirdi.
This lady had already a fairly good grounding of religious
experiences by contact with other saints, and her first
impressions of Baba are the more valuable on that account.
found the most prominent feature about Baba was his eyes.
She says¬ “'There was such power and penetration
in the glance that none could continue to look at his
eyes. One felt that Sai Baba was reading him or her through
and through. Soon one lowered one’s eyes and bowed
down. One felt that he was not only in one’s heart
but in every atom of one’s body.
few words, a gesture would reveal to one that Sai Baba
knew all about the past and present and even the future
and about everything else. There was nothing else to do
for one, except to submit trustfully and to surrender
oneself to him. And there He was to look after every minute
detail and guide one safe through every turn, and every
vicissitude of life. He was the Antaryami, call him God
or Satpurusha in Sahajasthithi or what you like. But the
overpowering personality was there, and, in his presence,
no doubts, no fears, no questionings had any place, and
one resigned oneself and found that was the only course,
the safest and best course' .
From her first contact she went on getting experiences
of his power, his all-knowing and all-pervasive personality,
and his protecting care shielding her wherever she went
and at any time whatsoever. She had become Baba’s
Ankita, by complete surrender, with full faith, to him.
For the benefit of strangers, she was kind enough to give
some instances of Baba’s Antaryamitva that she could
vouch for from personal experiences or from that of some
Shirdi was notorious
for being infested with snakes and is so even now after
lighting arrangements are made. When she went there first,
there was no street lighting and no village committee
was working. She was walking about at night in the streets.
But suddenly it struck, her that she should stop.
There was no light,
no sound, no object visible to account for her stopping.
But somehow she felt she must, and in a very little time,
a light was brought. Then she saw that if she had taken
another single step it would have been over a serpent
that was lying there quiet. But how she managed to stop
then, and why the light came, were never explained to
her. It was all Baba’s grace, his protection, and
his ever watchfulness over his children. She says, like
this, He saved her life again and again on several occasions,
both before and after his Mahasamadhi.
One very interesting
instance of Baba’s Antaryamitva that she gives was
in respect of a leper, who came to Baba to take his darsan.
The poor man's disease was very far advanced, and he had
very little strength. He was stinking all over. It was
with great difficulty he could slowly get up the three
steps of the Mosque, and then like every visitor he had
to go to the dhuni to pick up the ashes (udhi) and then
give it to Sai Baba, placing his head on Baba's feet.
This lady being fairly
near was finding his prolonged presence and the intense
stench he gave, very difficult to bear. At last he moved
off, and then she felt relief and said within herself,
'Thank God, He is off'. Sai Baba at once looked at her
sending a piercing glance at her. Of course he knew her
thought. He ordered the leper to be brought back. The
man came. Slowly he clambered up, full of his stench,
and bowed again.
He was carrying a
parcel in his hand-a very dirty parcel. Baba took it up
and asked, 'What is this?' and opened it. It had pedas
(milk sweets). Baba .picked up a piece and gave one piece
to this lady, and put a bit into his own mouth. Baba said
to the lady 'eat'. There was no option but to obey and
she had to eat it. Then the man was sent back with the
rest of the pedas. This is what he wished, that is, that
Sai Baba should accept a part of the peda, and return
the rest as prasad. Baba satisfied him, though that man
had not the courage first, when he arrived there, to present
the dirty packet to Baba.
Baba used the occasion
to teach her valuable lessons in humility, fraternity,
sympathy, endurance, and trust in Baba's supreme wisdom,
which knows when there is danger and when there is none.
She did not contract leprosy of course. She declares that
whenever they had difficulties to get over, they had simply
to stay or stand in Baba's presence, and no necessity
there was to utter a word. Baba knew at once everything
in the minds of his children, and would himself do the
needful. She gives one instance.
They had taken their
servant with them, who was suffering from pain in the
waist. As there was no hospital at Shirdi, her husband
went up and stood before Baba. At once Baba said, 'The
whole of my leg is paining. Great is the pain'. Some one
suggested 'Why not do something to relieve the pain?'
'Yes' said Baba, 'if green leaves are heated and applied
over it, the pain will go away'.
'What leaves, Baba?'
they asked. Baba said, 'The green leaves near the Lendi'
(Lendi is the odai-streamlet), 'Is it korphad-aloes -
somebody asked. ‘Yes’, said Baba, and added
if that is brought, split into two, warmed over the fire,
and applied, that will do, Her husband knew at once that
was Baba's prescription for their servant and he took
up korphad, warmed it over the fire, and applied it to
his servant's waist. That man was cured.”……
Shri Sai Satcharitra
is a Treasure gifted by Sri Sai to his devotees. That
is why I always refuse to accept any money for the Satcharitra
I give to others. Many people ask me for the book and
when I give it to them they ask how much it costs. We
may price a Holy book for its print but cannot price its
contents. This is my strong opinion.
Satcharitra is a ocean
like the four Vedas. Once Dr. Mrs. Vinnie Chitloori (author
of Ambrosia in Shirdi) told me that she always prays Baba
to give her at least seven births as His devotee and grant
strength to understand the Satcharitra in all aspects
and grant liberation in the last birth .
Baba makes a devotee fulfil his vow to other Gods is a
known matter from the Satcharitra. Once this happened
to me. Five years ago I have copied the Holy Sri Gurucharitra
in manuscipt (Master Universal Sai Trust of Ongole in
Andhra Pradesh is constructing an Ashram in Shirdi and
they wanted to place the manuscript books copied by the
Sai Devotees in a pillar or stoopa).
On completion of the
work while packing the Book for despatch, a thought came
to my mind that Lord Dattatreya is incarnation of Brahma,
Vishnu and Maheswara.....Oh Sainadha....it would be nice
to feed atleast three people on completion of my work.
The next day morning I went to a post office and sent
the parcel containing the Book to the Organisation. Walking
through the street suddenly one villager with two children
came and asked for food for his children.
I said that my house
is too far from that place and expressed my inability
to provide food instantly and offered him money to feed
children in any restaurant. He refused the money and said
that he too possessed money. He further said that he came
in search of his wife who had come to the city with her
parents to work in a construction project from their village
as they had no earnings at their place and children wanted
to meet their mother.
One child was 10 years
old and other was about 8. He said they came by a train
from their village and the children were hungry and the
money in his possession was required for his return travel.
I again insisted that he accept the money instead of food
as I was totally unable to feed them on such a busy street,
but he did not yield and requested me to provide food
to his children. I was totally baffled at his demand.
To my surprise I noticed an Irani restaurant a 100 yards
Overjoyed by seeing
this, I asked him if any snacks would be alright for them
as normally such kind of restaurants serve only tea and
snacks. He agreed. I took them to the restaurant and while
looking at the huge glass box containing bakery biscuits,
samosa etc, casually asked the bearer there if cooked
rice available. He replied that Vegetable Biryani was
I asked the villager
whether the children would eat such spicy food. He said
yes and asked me to arrange at least one plateful to feed
his children and he further said that he can resist himself.
But I ordered two plates full of Biryani for the children
and paid money for it in advance and told the bearer not
to ask any money from them and took a few steps towards
the exit. It then struck me that I had made a mistake.
I went back into the
restaurant and saw the children giving spoonful of food
to their father. Cursing myself for not ordering food
for their father, I approached the bearer and asked him
for one more plateful of biryani and paid money for it
and turned towards the villager.
The feeling I had
on seeing his expression of gratitude is unexplainable.
With great relief I came out of the restaurant and was
surprised to see a Baba idol installed in a small portion
opposite the restaurant. I looked at my wrist watch and
the time was 12.20. Then I realised what I thought when
I was packing the manuscript of Sri Guru Charitra previous
night and how Baba made me to fulfill my wish that too
in His presence. My faith in Him increased multifold with
experience, articles poems etc.

We see, we grow, we live and
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

experience, articles poems etc.
Karmas are our activities
of day today life. There are karmas which are acquired,
sanchitta, due to the total impressions gained in the
unconscious mind because of our activities. All these
karmas do not bear fruits at a time. There are some which
start giving results; these are called prarabdha karma
The other karmas give
results in time yet to come in our life called âgâmi.
An example of prarabdha karma is our body and the family
and circumstances in which we are born. Our body suffers
or enjoys due to the fruits of our prarabdha. Our karma
determines what we deserve and that can be called our
destiny. We are responsible for what we are. Nishkama
karma is the work done by a person without any desire
What we are today is sum total
of all the impressions of not only this life but also
the past lives, we have lived in this world. Whatever
good or bad impressions are there due to the good or bad
actions, they all work together and bring good or evil
effects on our personality. We ourselves are responsible
for what we are today.
In fact there is no
destiny or fate for which we are not responsible. Our
present circumstances and events are being governed by
our past actions, which are no longer in our hand now.
No one, but we are to be blamed for our so called destiny.
Our future is in our hand, governed by the actions we
perform today. Each one of us has two paths in front,
which can be followed: a path of ignorance and a path
The path of ignorance
looks pleasant; path of knowledge is goodness but is difficult
to follow. Most of us are all the time busy in collecting
things in life which seem pleasant, i.e., which satisfy
the animal instincts in us and we are not able to think
beyond the material world and the consequences of collecting
material wealth by any means. But we are also free to
live on principles like honesty, mercy, love, truthfulness,
kindness etc and have inner peace and contentment. The
path of ignorance leads us to painful existence of beings
born in lower yonis i.e. lower grades of evolution.
The path of knowledge
takes us to higher planes of consciousness, heaven or
Self realization, i.e., higher grades of evolution. Each
moment we have free will to act one way or the other in
the circumstances given to us. We judge each moment with
our intellect and discrimination and then act.
Our actions of yesterday
made our present and our actions of today will make our
future. So we can say that fate is our own karmas which
we have done during our various births which we have undergone
in past. The wrong actions lead us to results like bad
health, ignorance, enmity and many other such things.
Right actions in given circumstances bring good luck,
health, fortune, happiness etc.
According to karma
yoga, actions done by a person (not only in this life
but even in past lives), cannot be destroyed, unless we
reap the fruits of those actions. A good action done has
to bring good result and the bad one has to bring bad
effect. Some karma have already borne fruits (past), some
are at present working out (present), some are still waiting
and we have to bear the fruits of them (future).
The result of karmas
come only in proper environment and remain stored up till
the time comes. If a person does X number of good karmas
and Y number of bad karmas, it does not mean that the
effect of the karmas has to be calculated by simple equation
(X-Y). Each action, karma, in a person’s life has
to bear its fruit. If we have done X number of good karmas,
and Y number of bad karmas, we will have to bear the fruits
of both separately. It is just like growing seeds of X
number of apple trees and Y number of babool (a thorny
bush) in our garden. After some time we are bound to get
apples as well as thorns. One will not neutralize the
Mostly there are periods
in life when good or bad actions bear fruits. That is
the reason, sometimes; even bad people seem to be having
good time, but when their time comes, they too have to
suffer due to the result of their bad actions. We can
make efforts that may avoid the onset of environment in
which our bad actions may give their result.
All wrong vicious actions bring
pain and all virtuous actions bring pleasure. Each one
has to reap the fruits of wicked deeds he does in life.
Therefore to avoid
the onset of environment in which fruits of bad actions
may result, one should start doing right actions. One
should try to bring only sacred thoughts in mind and stop
running after worldly pleasures which bring only temporary
joy in life. If one feels the world around is bad and
people do not act rightly, try to gaze within instead
of judging others.
One should think every
day before one sleeps, if any action in the day was done
wrongly; if so one should determine not to do it again.
Control of mind, desires and good actions in an unselfish
manner help in creating an environment where the actions
of wrong karmas are not able to give the results.
We should understand the purpose
of this life and try to practice and achieve it every
minute in our life. From childhood till old age, innumerable
times, we read about the good and bad habits but very
few of us try to improve on them. Therefore constant practice
is the only way to succeed.
A person has to make
conscious efforts to walk on the path of knowledge instead
of ignorance. Although we do not have unlimited freedom
i.e. freedom over our external circumstances but we have
limited freedom to act correctly in the given circumstances.
The freedom to act wrongly or correctly is called the
free will. In a given situation each individual behaves
Supposing there is
an accident on the road in front of us. We have many options:
One, we may decide to go away without checking if someone
needs help. Second, we may stop and see if someone is
hurt and try to call an ambulance and police. Third, we
may do our best to save a life and pick up the injured
and take him straight to the nearest hospital for treatment.
The situation is same but the actions that can be taken
are various, the decision depends upon the free will of
It is our intellect
which helps us to discriminate between right and wrong,
good and bad. Most of us have not developed our intellect
for this activity and this is the reason that we choose
the path that satisfies our senses, rather than our spirit,
the path which is easier and we are used to follow. For
example it is very natural for a hunter to kill a bird
or an animal for his pleasure but not so for a person
who believes in non-violence.
The best way to develop intellect is introspection. At
the end of the day, we should sit down quietly and remember
all the activities of the day. We will find some of our
actions are right and some are wrong. We should go deep
in our thoughts and make a decision to act in a correct
manner in future.
will make our intellect available to us in such circumstances
when we need to decide between two paths. Then we will
act based on the higher values of life, and not for pleasures
to satisfy our animal instincts, then our future will
take shape accordingly.
