FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE
Most of the devotees
and disciples of a ‘Sadguru or a Spiritual Master’
generally have a certain fixed beliefs and ideas about
the personality and working style of these magnificent
beings. They not only conceive of them (the Masters) as
Divine human embodiments with perfect qualities but also
expect them to function in accordance with certain standards
conceptualized by them. The evolved devotees pray and
worship them to make them pure, take them out of the worldly
engagements and to lead them in the divine path. However,
the number of such devotees is very small. On the other
hand, the majority of devotees imagine a Guru as one who
would forgive them always for their faults, satisfy even
their most selfish needs, perform miracles to protect
them from all kinds of diseases and problems, save them
from the consequences of their immoral and dangerous acts.
With such superficial
knowledge gained through reading of a few books and listening
to a few discourses, they are conveniently convinced that
all the personal problems of the Masters whether physical,
financial, social or those relating to his family must
be getting solved easily either through God’s intervention
or through the use of Master’s miraculous powers.
When they come to the Masters with such preconceived assumptions,
the very approach is distorted from the beginning. They
are not ready to take into consideration the priorities
and compulsions of the Masters - mundane and spiritual
No doubt a Sadguru
is a Perfect being with far superior qualities of head
and heart than any human being and is capable of existing
in two states of consciousness simultaneously. By His
sheer will, He can enter into the highest states of spiritual
ecstasy or can come down to the ordinary worldly realities
with equal ease. Thus when in the state of spiritual ecstasy,
which can be seen to be either peaceful or otherwise i.e.
(Jamali or Jalali state), He can give revelations about
future events, persons, places or groups and also can
create wonderous miracles like controlling the elements
of nature, curing diseases at once and granting fulfillment
of desires of the devotees.
On the other hand
when He is in an ordinary human state of consciousness,
He can be seen to cook food, purchase articles from the
market, clean His own clothes, take care of His body,
cutting jokes and even engaging in arguments like an ordinary
man. To maintain His body as a perfect machine for carrying
on His divine role, He has to do certain mundane activities
like cleaning His body, eating, sleeping etc. In the case
of Masters like Tukaram, Nanakdev, Kabir who had families,
they also, besides themselves, had to take care of their
family members and relatives. Once with a human body the
Masters will have to go through all the limitations and
pains of the body they hold.
However devotees who
look up to the Master as a God more through their imagination
than experience, think that the Guru must be taking care
of all his problems through the use of His miraculous
powers and are sure that he would be having no problem
whatsoever. However, the lives of some of the saints like
Tukaram who had a family speaks volumes about the amount
of trouble they had to face because even their family
members did not understand and appreciate their divine
qualities, Many a times their divine benevolence and goodness
were interpreted as weakness and exploited by the devotees
and relatives alike. Some of the devotees try to surround
the Master always and never let Him have any privacy even
the devotees hold “since He is in a God state, we
are also His children as much as the one’s born
out of Him. Is not spending time with the family members
and relatives, when there are so many around wanting to
be helped, unbecoming of a real Guru”. The situation
is still worse when some people assume themselves to be
perfect devotees and demand of the Guru to act in a certain
manner towards them as per their desire. They are not
aware that even in the spiritual world and hierarchy there
are perfect laws and conditions under which such mutual
relationship between the Guru and disciple is established.
Most of the so-called
and self assumed disciples don’t have any idea about
these rules and conditions necessary for moving along
the spiritual path with the Masters; far to speak of following
them. They seem to be more aware about their rights on
the Master than on their duty towards Him. On the one
hand they want the Master to fully understand and appreciate
their problems, on the other hand they don’t even
try to understand and appreciate the priorities and difficulties
of the Master.
Even if there is a
devotional aspect along with self interest, it is ‘Sakama’
bhakti. The Master rarely gets devotees with ‘Nishkama’
bhakti. But once such a disciple comes into contact with
the Master, he is taken care of fully by the Master as
His own child. Such a disciple is raised in the spiritual
hierarchy by the Master.".........
Q & A
What is the
role of a Sadguru like Baba in our life?
The Sadguru gives
the ability of God realization to deserving human beings.
His first function is to evolve them, stage by stage and
give the experience of attaining the state of ‘Paramhamsa’
to the very, very few deserving human beings. Without
the grace of a Sadguru it is impossible to achieve this
state. One in billions can achieve this ‘Paramhamsa’
or ‘Sadguru’ state. ‘Paramukti’
and ‘turiyavastha’ can be attained with great
The Sadguru removes
all the impediments in the path of spiritual evolution
of any human being who comes in His contact with Him in
any way. Sadguru breaks the wrong and illusory concepts
(maya) of a devotee collected through a few lives of his
existence. All human concepts are relative and illusory
in nature. When ignorance is dispelled by the Guru the
disciple’s inner knowledge gets illuminated itself.
The true knowledge
is veiled by various concepts taught to us from childhood
and experience acquired by us. Therefore, it is necessary
to shed them before the mind is free to accept new and
truthful concepts. For a man who thinks that he is the
most intelligent person, the Sadguru wipes out his ego
of intellect till he realises that his intellect was full
of follies. The Sadguru works upon the human society intensely
in a way so as to ensure that human beings transcend their
human limitations and attain a limitless state of God,
which is their original state.
MAY I ANSWER book by Shri C. B. Satpathy released on Ram
Navami For details see www.heritageofshirdisai.org
FROM "LIFE OF SAI BABA" BY NARASIMHA SWAMI
some turned up wanting Brahma Jnana from Baba to be handed
over to them like a packet of sweets across the counter.
One such person was a rich man who went to Baba, and expressly
put the question to Baba, ‘What is God like?’
Baba did not address the visitor, but asked some devotee
near him to go to Bagchand Marwadi and tell him that Baba
wanted Rs.100, and then bring the money. That man returned
in a minute and said, ‘The Marwadi (Money lender)
says that he has no money, and sends his namaskar’.
Baba again sent this man to another money lender to ask
him for the loan of Rs. 100.
time also the devotee returned saying that the money lender
said that he had no money. Baba next said, ‘Fetch
Nana Saheb Chandorkar’. Nana came. Then Baba told
Nana that he wanted Rs.100. Nana at once wrote a chit
to the same Bagchand Marwadi for a loan of Rs.I00, and
in a minute the money came from that Marwadi, and Nana
placed that sum in Baba’s hands. Baba then said,
‘It is all like this in this world.’ The impatient
visitor could make out nothing at all and could not understand
why, when he asked about God, Baba did not answer the
question but went on sending people for loans, and asked
Das Ganu why Baba did so. Das Ganu said that Baba had
answered his question.
The visitor wanted to know how. Das Ganu said, ‘When
others asked for money, it was not forthcoming, but when
Nana Saheb asked for it, the money was at once forthcoming.
So, the man who merely asks, “What is God like”
does not get to know it. But the man who is qualified
to know that and only the man who deserves to know that,
gets that knowledge. Baba’s answer therefore is
“Deserve before you desire Brahman”.
On another occasion, a very rich man came to Baba with
a large amount of money in his pocket, and with great
anxiety to avoid extra expenditure, as far as possible,
he had engaged a cab for the journey from Kopergaon to
Shirdi and back, promising to return in half an hour.
So, the man came in a hurry to Baba and said, ‘Baba,
show me God, Brahman. It is for this I have come all this
long way. People say that Shirdi Baba reveals Brahman
very quickly.’ Baba said, ‘Do not fear. Immediately
and clearly I will show you.
This is not a matter that could be put off. It is hard
to get questioners seeking illumination like you. (Here
Baba’s irony was hardly understood by the man).
Most people seek wealth, cure of disease or trouble, honour,
position, or perpetual pleasure and other earthly objects.
None wants God. Oh, I long to see those who long to see
God. Now, Brahman is the root cause of the Universe that
which accounts for Solar and Planetary motions, variations
of seasons and division of all functions. One must know,
i.e., realise Brahman before death. Else there will be
an ever recurring cycle of births and deaths. ReaIisation
gives 'Kevala Advaita Sukham '. A Guru gives it and only
a Guru can'.
Baba then turned to some others and sent a boy out with
these words: “Go, tell Nandalal Marwadi, Baba urgently
wants a hand loan of Rs.5/- and bring the money”.
The boy went and found the marwadi absent. Baba sent more
messages to absent men. The rich man was getting impatient
at Baba’s failure to give him atmajnan or sight
of God, more especially because delay would mean extra
payment to the tonga walla whom he had engaged for the
return journey also. He saw, of course, that Baba wanted
Rs.5 and he could stop the repeated requests of Baba for
Rs.5 by paying it out of the Rs.250/- he had in his pocket.
But he was oppressed with the fear that if he advanced
the loan, it might prove irrecoverable.
He asked Baba, ‘Will you help me to grasp Brahman?’
Baba replied, ‘You see what I have been doing all
this while is to enable you to see God even as you are
now seated. Have you understood nothing? I want five.
One must surrender the five to get at Brahman. One must
surrender the five senses (Indriyas), the five pranas
and manas, Buddhi, Ahankar (Mind, Intellect and Ego) (all
of which involve Vairagya i.e., detachment). The road
to Brahma Jnana is hard to tread. All cannot tread it.
When it dawns, there will be light. One who feels unattached
to things terrestrial and celestial is alone competent
to have Brahmajnan'.
The man found that Baba had read his strong attachment
to the Rs.5/- which he considered more important than
getting Brahmajnana Upadesa.
Baba taught the absolute importance of complete surrender
of Tan Man Dan, that is, body, mind and possessions, as
an essential preliminary to fitness to understand and
be absorbed in God. This surrender is set out in Srimad
Bhagavata and other works.”……
It was sometime in
the first or second week of March this year that I got
a call from my father saying that he felt that he passed
some blood with his urine, although he had not not feel
any related pain earlier. I told him not to worry. He
said that he was planning to get medical advice on this.
An ultrasound of his right kidney showed growth of some
irregular mass on the kidney. Not knowing what it meant,
we consulted a doctor over the phone and he suggested
immediate CT scan.
We did this and found
that there was a growth. The hard part came when the doctor
told us that it could not be treated by medicines. The
only option left was surgery. This verdict almost shook
my father out of his senses. He who had not experienced
any major illness in the past and was otherwise healthy
found it difficult to undergo an operation and that too
within a time frame of 15-20 days at the maximum.
suggested that the operation was either possible in Fortis
Hospital or AIIMS by two specific doctors and would include
an expense of approximately couple of lakh rupees. Since
we had no reference in as big a Govt. Hospital as AIIMS
we did not want to consider this as an option. But our
dear Baba had planned things in some other way. A few
days later an acquaintance of my father came to our house
to meet him and upon asking mentioned casually that one
of his relatives worked in a senior position in AIIMS.
We asked him whether
he could try to get an appointment of the surgeon for
us. After a couple of days the appointment was fixed and
the surgeon suggested immediate admission to the hospital.
My father was admitted to the general ward on the very
next day. But this was not the end of Baba’s benevolence.
This was just the beginning. Baba saw to it that my father
got transferred to a nice private ward on the very next
day. He was made to stay there in a very comfortable manner
for next 7 days.
All the tests turned
out to be in his favour and the operation was done on
the 8th day. The operation was successful but what touched
us the most was the manner in which things happened. Every
thing was so smoothly managed by Baba that the whole stay
was not less than a miracle. From admission till discharge,
every day gave us a reason to feel that it is Baba himself
who is getting things done for us. Not to mention the
fact that the expenditure incurred was almost negligible
and the doctors called the operation of my father a complication
Today my father has recovered
and often says that everything good that happened during
the whole process was Baba’s doing. Our heartfelt
thanks to You, Deva. Whatever and howsoever I may say,
I know that I would not be able to thank You enough. It
was not only his life but our whole family that You saved.
Hold our hands always and let our sole refuge be you!!

the Darkest of Nights
the darkest of nights, when fear just holds me tight,
And yesterday has only betrayed, then tomorrow I know
will only dread.
I feel so much burden in my heart, and sadness has gripped
Loneliness is all I have right now...
Then as silence just dawns,
I hear an echo in my heart, Om Sai Ram, Om Sai Ram, Om
My heart beat by beat, says, everything will be ok, just
It only You that I look to,
oh Sai! whatever I am going through,
Its ok, because I know you are with me all the way through,
Om Sai Ram, you show me the truth.
Suddenly I feel like the dark
cloud has moved,
And warm sunshine is sprinkling its rays,
Oh Sai! Just the power of Your name Dissolve sorrows and
converts them to smiles.
Life without you, oh Sai, is
full of sadness, pain, hate, ego and envy,
But You teach love, hope and strength, oh Sai! With two
words Faith and Patience,
Though this heartfelt prayer I say, Free us from these
chains that kill us day by day.
Oh Sai, teach me Shraddha,
To meditate on your leela's, to rejoice on your life,
The strength to give seva, to my mata pita, guru,
Oh Sadguru, without you, my life is worth no life at all.

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION
ON DUTY TOWARDS ONES FAMILY AS TOLD BY BABA
In Sri Sai Satcharita
many instances have been recorded where SaiBaba has advised
how a householder – male as well as female should
conduct himself or herself. A few of them are as under:
1. First give bread
to the hungry and then eat yourself. Do not make the habit
of eating alone. Share it with those around you. Always
remember God every time you take food. Before the senses,
mind and intellect enjoy their objects, first God should
be remembered. He who feeds the hungry, be it human or
animal or bird or plant, serves God. See God in all beings.
SaiBaba disapproved of fasting and said that God cannot
be found on an empty stomach. He advised moderate eating
i.e, neither starving nor over-eating.
2. Unless there is
some relationship or connection, nobody goes anywhere.
If any men or creatures come to you, do not discourteously
drive them away but receive them well, and treat them
with due respect. Give water to the thirsty, bread to
the hungry, clothes to the naked and your verandah to
strangers for resting. If anybody wants any money from
you and you are not inclined to give, do not give but
do not bark at him like a dog. It is on account of Rinanubandh
(former relationship) that we have come together, let
us love and serve each other and be happy.
3. Duty of feeding
sanyasi is of householders due to Panchasoona –
five sins and their atonement. In order to prepare food
stuffs and meals the householders have to go through five
actions or processes viz pounding, grinding, washing pots,
sweeping and cleaning and lighting hearths. These processes
involve destruction of a lot of small insects and creatures
and thus the households incur an amount of sin.
To atone of this these
shastras prescribe 6 offerings viz - Offerings to Brahman,
study of the Vedas, offerings to ancestors, offerings
to Gods, offerings to beings, offerings to men or uninvited
guests. If these are duly performed it leads to purification
of mind and helps them in getting knowledge and self realization.
Baba in going from house to house reminded the householders
of their sacred duty.
4. No body should
take the labour of others in vain. The worker should be
paid his dues promptly and liberally.
5. For spiritual progress
of householders, Baba advised that God is One- Ram and
Rahim are one and the same, why should their devotees
fall out and quarrel among themselves. It is not good
to dispute and argue. So don’t argue, don’t
emulate others. Always consider your interest and welfare.
The lord will protect you. If anyone does any evil unto
you do not retaliate. If you can do anything do some good
6. To reach God, surrender
of self to Sadguru is a must. This surrender has to be
combined with two virtues of Faith and Patience. We should
turn all our attention towards Him and avoid the company
of atheists, irreligious and wicked people.
In short, a householder
– male or female - should always engage in good
actions, do duties of their respective stations in life
and surrender themselves, heart and soul to Him. This
is enough to achieve the aim of taking a human body.

your views on Topic of Discussion-
SHIRDI SAI BABA AND
you trust Baba and wait with patience, you can rest assured
that He will surely lend a hand. He is always with you
when ever you want him because I always see His picture
when ever I have his name on my lips. Keep chanting Sai
Samrat, it will help.
bless all of your children.
I want to add some
thing to the following incident from Sri Sai Baba's life
narrated in your latest edition:
"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."
Actually Dr. Pillai is from
Kerala. In Malabar area of Kerala the word used for a
crow is Kaka. Also a Muslim is respectfully addressed
as Kaka, meaning elder brother. Sri Sai Baba referring
to Abdul as Kaka is very meaningful and is extra ordinary
as every thing else about Sri Sai Baba.
feelings about Shirdi Sai in Devotees’ Forum
morning when I was doing my Surya namaskar as usual, I
tried my best to see my Sai's face in the sky and do pranams
thrice. Today I was thinking how nice if I get to see
my Sai in sky blue color and after all that when I opened
my inbox I found Heritage of Shirdi Sai Newsletter (Vol
82) and to my utter surprise Sai was in Sky blue and was
looking awesome. Thanks for all your seva and I bow to
my Sai Maharaj for this blessing.
You are rendering a yeoman service to mankind. It is a
delight to receive, read, meditate and rejoice while reading
the articles in your published works. The photographs
of Baba brought out in the newsletters are simply outstanding
and mesmerising to watch and we take delight in them.
It is as if seeing Baba's resplendent personality infuses
divine faith and conscience. The preachings of Shri Satpathyji
are very rejuvenating for one's spiritual life. Long live
your efforts and my sincere prayers to Baba for His Blessings
and patronage to sustain this publication for ever.
