FROM SHRI C.B. SATPATHY'S MESSAGE
SAHEB DIXIT - The devotee par-excellence of Baba
when, the goat was asked by Baba to be taken away to another
place it died on the way. Not that Baba did not know that
the goat would die under his care, but he simply was using
the situation to test the faith of his devotees. Kaka
Saheb Dixit thus was the Bhakta par-excellence of Baba
and will ever remain an example for the posterity in matters
of faith on the Sadguru and the sacrifice and risks he
was prepared to undergo unquestioningly and ungrudgingly.
Kaka said “Your word is law unto us” or “Prompt
compliance with Guru’s orders is our duty or Dharma,
he was just stating in a different language what Shri
Krishna told Arjuna in Geeta” Sarva Dharma Parityajaya
Mamekam Sharanam Braja” (Leaving all religions take
shelter in me, meaning there by, following me is the only
when he said “we do not know or consider it is right
or wrong to kill” he was similarly stating in different
language what Shri Krishna had told AIjun in Geeta “Nimitta
Bhabah Savyaschi” (i.e. Oh Arjuna be my instrument).
Arjuna was not ready to kill his relatives in the war
of Mahabharata but Krishna told him that he (Arjuna) should
kill in a Dharma Yuddha as an instrument of God and not
suffer from the pangs of doership.
are numerous examples which indicate the depth and expanse
of Kaka Saheb’s love for Baba as also the quality
and magnanimity of his faith in Baba. Just for example,
once Kaka got a trunk full of rupees (may be more than
a thousand) which he had earned in a Native State and
placed it before Baba saying “Baba, all this is
yours” Baba at once distributed the entire amount
to the crowd around while Dixit watched quietly without
any reactions which any ordinary mortal would not have
taken with such equanimity.
at Shirdi with Baba for long periods resulted in negligence
of his professional duties and other social obligations
as a practicing Solicitor. His income was reduced to the
barest minimum and some of his well wishers even came
to Shirdi, met Baba and requested him to spare Kaka Saheb
but Baba would not leave his dear child. Whatever he had,
had been spent at Shirdi. Only his house at Ville Parle
and another one or two properties remained.
coming to Shirdi Kaka Saheb Dixit, used to live almost
like a king with his fabulous earnings and used to feed
hundreds of people daily. But, there came a time, after
Baba had left his body that the same Kaka could not arrange
thirty thousand rupees for paying the debtof a Marwari
who was pressing hard. This he did as he had full faith
in Baba’s words “Kaka Tulakalji Kasli, Mala
Sara Kalji Ahe” which means ‘Kaka, why should
you have any worry.
worries are mine.” Baba did worry for the payment
of the debt of Kaka by arranging the amount in the most
miraculous and dignified manner. This is Baba’s
Kripa. But the greatness of Kaka Saheb is that inspite
of all the pressures from the Marwari, the fear of facing
legal action, of losing social reputation, he waited on
for days for his Sadguru to help him like an orphan, although
he himself could have tried and succeeded in arranging
that amount of money. No ordinary mortal, under these
conditions, would have just waited for the Sadguru to
provide such help in the manner Kaka did as from the rationalistic
and worldly point of view such an action would have been
considered utterly foolish.".........
Q & A
treading the Guru path we are bound to commit mistakes.
Should we convey them to the Guru?
beings are bound to commit mistakes. The Sadguru knows
that his disciples will commit mistakes due to their ignorance
known as ‘maya’. The Sadguru always remains
alert to stop the devotees from getting into the entrapments
of maya. Because of his own mistake if a disciple falls
into the danger then the ‘Sadguru’ directly
or indirectly helps him out.
used to say “Know it that wherever you are and whatever
you do I am fully aware of it”. Sai Baba’s
life history shows that He was omniscient, omnipotent
and omnipresent. The Guru alone knows how to take His
disciples ahead spiritually and to stop them from committing
mistakes. We certainly get protection of the Guru for
the mistakes unknowingly done by us, but we should try
to ensure that the mistakes knowingly committed are not
repeated once they are pointed out to us.
we are not able to follow the path shown by the Guru due
to circumstances and the Guru understands this since He
is beyond the normal human qualities of anger and hatred.
In His heart He has only compassion for His disciples.
He keeps a watch on the intentions and motivations of
the disciple for his spiritual evolution. If the devotee’s
will power is strong and there is complete surrender to
the Guru then He goes on helping the disciple to evolve
inspite of several mistakes committed by him.
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
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.
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.
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.
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 producing 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,
Kritam karma scubha Ascubham.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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’.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. ”……
Pivot of Faith
pivot of faith, trust and patience are the basic ingredients
without which the best of cakes baked will remain undone!
coupled with the unconditional acceptance of Divine Will
requires our total trust in our Guru or Guide. Once we
submit to our God, Guru or Guide we have to accept the
guidance received with total and an unquestioning faith.
The pivotal quality in this is patience. Little or big
difficulties which have become a part and parcel of our
life need to be overcome. But we need patience to be able
to implement the perfect guidance received from the Masters.
pivot of faith, trust and patience are the ingredients
without which the best of cakes baked will remain undone
and incomplete! Patience alone with faith will give us
the knowledge to sort out the problems.
Abraham who is known as the Father of the Prophets was
tested more than once by the Lord God and thankfully not
found wanting. One of the first tests from God that this
Prophet had to withstand was the order of King Nimrod
to burn Him for his teachings. The biggest fire that people
ever witnessed was lit, Abraham's hands and feet were
chained, and he was put in a catapult to throw him into
that time, Angel Gabriel came to him and said: "O
Abraham! Is there anything you wish for?" Abraham
could have asked to be saved from the fire, to be taken
away, but no, he said: "I only wish that God be pleased
with me." A lesson in submission to the will of God
and the faith that is necessary to go with it.
catapult was released, and Abraham was thrown in the heart
of the fire. But God would not allow His Prophet to be
killed and ordered the fire: "O fire! Be a place
of coolness and safety for Abraham!" The fire obeyed
and burned only his chains and Prophet Abraham came out
from it looking peaceful, and with a face that was shining.
People watched in awe and exclaimed: "Amazing! Abraham's
God has saved him from the fire!"
reminds us of Shri Sai ordering the fire of the Dhuni
to calm down by striking it with His stick, and commanding
the flames to recede. The flames which had begun to scorch
the rafters of the Dwarkamai, responded and calmed down.
Another example was when He ordered the poison injected
by the snake not to go down in the case of Shama, or the
quelling of the storm.
immediate response and obedience of the elements to the
orders seems amazing. However this is what is required;
and yet, in most cases, intelligent, educated human beings
will not respond in this way. In order to respond in totality
it is necessary to develop a complete and unflinching
faith in almighty.
sacrifice, commitment and patience are just some of the
qualities that characterize Prophet Abraham (peace be
upon him). So it should come as no surprise that he is
revered not just in Islam, but in Christianity and Judaism
as well, and is known as the Father of People.
to our time and in our country Shri Sai Baba very often
told his followers to “Keep quiet and I will do
the rest”. What He wanted was complete faith which
resulted in total surrender, letting Him guide us through
the various traps which life has in store for us with
the same faith Abraham had. Or our very own Sai Baba had
in His Guru. This is what He really wants out of love.
Baba wants us to surrender those six vices – anger,
greed, lust, ego, jealousy and apathy, which are obstacles
and will hinder our submission.
if every time we are faced with tests (nothing will be
without that) our response is clouded by anger or ego
– Why me? Now what? Not again? The many such exclamations
with which we react are not what Baba wants. Such reactions
will only hamper our progress. He wants complete and quiet
submission to His will.
the six vices are uprooted our reactions to these tests
will be very different and there will be quiet acceptance-“Baba’s
Will”. Once these obstacles are removed from our
path, our progress under Baba’s guidance will be
that much faster.
of the finest examples of faith is reflected in the following
story. Once when Hazrat Ibrahim Bin Adham was crossing
a river in a boat a storm set in. The boat was about to
sink and the people were frightened. Ibrahim took out
a Quran from his pocket and called out to the Lord –
“If this boat sinks this book will be lost. But
this cannot be.” The Lord answered “We will
not let the boat sink.”
such example is about Kaka Saheb Dixit. On one occasion,
Kaka at Shirdi got fever, and then when he went to Baba,
Baba told him, 'You better get away to your bungalow at
Ville Parle. This fever will last only "four"
i.e. a few days. But have no fear. It will pass away,
and you will get all right. Do not allow yourself to be
bedridden. You can go on eating sira (semolina pudding),
Saheb accordingly went away to ViIIe Parle. There his
fever was increasing. Dr. D’monte was called and
he diagnosed the fever as Navajvara and he directed the
patient to remain in bed and take the prescribed medicine.
Baba had told him, 'Padighevum Nakos" that is, 'Avoid
lying in bed'.
Kaka sat up on a swing (Palang) and he went on eating
sira, a dish full of ghee and semolina, which fever patients
are medically advised to avoid. The fever steadily increased,
and the doctor was aghast at Kaka's throwing his instructions
to the winds. He called on a fellow doctor to diagnose,
and both of them said that things would take a very serious
turn, if Kaka Saheb kept on violating medical advice.
Kaka told his doctor Demonte that he had sent for him
to have friendly and cheerful company and that, since
Baba said "This fever would pass away in a few days,"
he was sure the doctor would not be blamed as he (Kaka)
was sure to recover. Dr. D’monte thought that Kaka
was being fooled by some fakir, but to his surprise and
that of others, though Kaka's health went on from bad
to worse initially, he suddenly regained normality on
the ninth day.
Kaka Saheb was confirmed in his absolute belief in the
divine protection of Sai Baba, and the absolute truth
of every word that Baba uttered.
faith is called 'Nishtha', one of the two coins which
Baba insisted on being given by the disciple as Dakshina
to the Guru (namely, 'Nishtha and Saburi'. Saburi means
patience that is courageous, cheerful and persevering).
These qualities were steadily developing in Dixit, and
he gave these two coins (Nishtha and Saburi) to Sai Baba,
come from a family of devotees of Sri Shirdi Sai Baba.
I have known Him and have prayed to Him ever since I have
known God. Baba has helped us in numerous ways all through
our lives every time we needed Him. I want to share two
experiences where He restored my faith in Him.
son developed eczema at the age of two. It got worse when
he was 5 and we took him to a lot of specialists in the
U.S and used a lot of medicines on him. It only worsened
his condition to an extent that we used to have a hard
time answering people's questions when we took him out.
I used to pray to Lord Sainath every day to make him better
and used to stand in front of His (Sai Baba's) photo and
beg Him for help in tears.
I vowed to Him that if my son started to show any improvement
in his condition, our whole family would go to Shirdi.
And then when we next visited his doctor she recommended
a dermatologist and miraculously her treatment started
to show improvement in him and we knew it was with Baba's
blessings that we found her and our son was getting better.
We visited Shirdi this year and paid our respects to Lord
I have been trying to find a job in the field of Computer
science and with no work experience I was very unsure
of getting one. I was trying very hard and I left it to
Sai Baba to help me with this one too and as I fervently
sought His help, I got a call from a software company
for an interview and within 3 days was offered a part
gladly accepted it as the Lord's blessings. I have always
been told that Baba helps those who have complete faith
in Him and time and again I have seen proof of it. May
Baba shower His blessings on all His devotees at all times.

TOPIC OF DISCUSSION
BABA AND NATIONAL INTERGRATION
was the dawn of Sai Consciousness at the horizons of Shirdi
village, when a ‘yogi’ of sixteen years was
found by the people under a ‘neem’ tree, in
the 18th century. Today it’s light has been spread,
the world over. Devotees from every country, every caste
or community, every sect or religion, come to pay their
tribute to the ‘Mahasamadhi’ of One, who is
being known as Sai Baba. Presently, Shirdi is being visited
by approximately twenty thousand to one lakh people every
was the time when the social strata in India, was divided
horizontally and vertically. During the 17th century,
Saint Ramdas had started a movement for protecting the
cows and Brahmins, from the cruelties and religious exploitation
by the muslim community. This movement had generated a
gap and hatred between the two communities.
appearance of Sai Baba in Shirdi, His life style, His
ideals, His preachings and His immense love for humanity
helped in bridging the gulf. He believed in world brotherhood.
He called the people to unite, to join hands, and work
for the upliftment of humanity, society and the nation,
by keeping aside their religious or social differences.
He had once announced that the religions are not made
by God, it is the man who made them. It is not necessary
to be a hindu, christian or muslim. It is enough to be
a human being.
Baba was an embodiment of awakening, love, brotherhood,
sacrifice, high ideals, and service to humanity. He taught
the importance of ‘faith’ and ‘patience’.
He had said that ‘faith’ is the power by which
a conscious life attaches itself to God. He was a ‘fakir’
but He spoke as a Prophet, lived as a ‘karmyogi’
of ‘Gita’, taught like Christ in ‘Testament’,
served as Buddha in ‘Dhampada’, and left the
body as a Saint-Immortal.
those days, it needed extraordinary courage to use a muslim
mosque like a hindu temple, to name a mosque as ‘Dwarkamai’,
keep the sacred fire burning, blow the cronch, and celebrate
‘Ramnavmi’ there, with the words ‘ ‘Allah
Malik’ on the lips, all the time.
Baba had a mysterious personality. He had, not only, a
deep knowledge of most of the religions, but had equal
respect for every religion, and class of society. Though,
for the people, He was a Holy Father with Divine Powers,
having control over the Nature even, still He served the
society as an ordinary ‘fakir’ with a begging
bowl in His hand.
was the greatness of His character, which attracted the
people from all the corners of the world, irrespective
of their geographical and historical differences. This
has not only helped in national integration but has tied
them in a single thread of Sai Consciousness.

CONTROL OF MIND -
SUGGESTED BY BABA
There is a Sakti or power in every word. The Name of God
chanted correctly or incorrectly, knowingly or unknowingly,
carefully, is sure to give the desired result. The glory
of the Name of God cannot be established through reasoning
and intellect. It can be experienced or realized only
through devotion, faith and constant repetition of the
Name. By Mantra japa, you can attain peace of mind quickly.
By prolonged and constant practice the inherent power
of the Mantra (Mantra-Sakti) will be awakened, which will
fill your very existence with the Divinity of the Mantra.
Devadip Ismael Rodriguez, Caracas, Venezuela
week, I was in an extreme situation, not knowing whether
to go to right or left, go on or get back, go up or go
down; and suddenly Sai caught me and took me beyond all
those options. One more time He showed me that just how
He promises us: "If a devote is near to fall, I stretch
My hands to hold him or her". I am a Shirdi Sai Baba
Devote with a high attraction for Sri Krishna. But Shirdi
Sai is all for me.
feelings about Shirdi Sai in Devotees’ Forum
M. R. Dash, Rourkela (Orissa)
How nice is it to bind all the Sai Devotees in the Rope
of Love by communicating to all on all the festive occasions.
You have created a big family. In these days of hectic
schedule where there is no time for visiting each other,
no time to buy cards and send them to all friends and
relatives, no time to call everybody over phone, you have
created a new innovative way to send the festive greetings
which not only reminds us of Baba but creates a fellow-feeling
amongst all the Sai Devotees. Your E- Card was excellent.
behalf of all the readers I thank all the members of the
Board, staff & editor of Heritage of Shirdi Sai for
their constant effort to keep us enlightened with the
light of Diwali and wish you all a Happiness and Prosperity.
On behalf of all the readers I also wish Happy Diwali
to Sri C.B. Satpathyji & his family. We pray Baba
to give him a long & healthy life so as to enable
him to spread the message of Baba throughout the world.
you so much for the great effort you are doing. It is
so wonderful to receive Baba's blessings where ever I
am. I have been away from India for a long time and could
not therefore visit Sai Ka Aangan for six months. But
because of your splendid work, I never felt that I was
away. You ensured to send me the blessing of Baba through
the magazine and otherwise too. Baba's photograph charges
me just as much as the puja does.
Please continue to carry on the enormous work you are
doing because Baba's ways are strange and beyond us to
understand. You are probably not aware how much it is
helping the devotees throughout the globe.
