Thursday [Baba's Day]

Aum Sairam

May This Thursday [Baba's Day] Bring You Strength, Good luck, Success
Happiness And Joy

Being ignorant since many births, Oh Sai, I haven't known God!
By the flash of your mercy, I see the God for the first time!

What is the most important thing one could get from Sadguru Sri
Sainath? He Himself said that although He is willing to give from His
open coffers, most are not inclined to seek it. After every desire is
answered and the truce between needs and wants established, Sadguru
begins His work on the chosen ones. The most competent Sri Sainath has
innumerable ways that he chooses according to the nature of the devotee.

God vision, the realization of the supreme, the purpose to any quest,
realization of the self, knowledge of the absolute, these are some of
the descriptors of the dormant quest one might have in the spiritual
path. The satsang with Sadguru is never passive! It is not a choice!

Is Sri Sai Baba a mere Guru or God himself? This is a stale question as
any reader of books on Sri Sai Baba can say that Sri Sai Baba appears
to those in whatever form they chose. Stories abound where Sri Sai Baba
appeared as Vitthal, Shiva, Dattatreya, Jesus and other forms of
divinity. In spite of this, is there a question whether Sri Sai Baba is
just a siddha purusha, someone who acquired supernatural powers due to
sadhana or He the absolute beyond all siddhis? Is He the God?

What is God? What are God's attributes? None is able to describe this.
Hence, even the question whether Sri Sai Baba is God or not, is not
completely legitimate and at the best can only be a relative rhetoric!
To make this simple, if one would
choose any form of God within one's confine, describe the attributes of
such a form, Rama, Shiva, Jesus, Krishna, Vishnu, Allah or Buddha, all
those attributes can be found in the perfect master of Shirdi. If God
is defined as an object of faith, the faith will reveal God's form.

Be Thankful

Aum Sairam

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something
Cos' it gives you the opportunity to learn

Be thankful for difficult times
Cos' it is those times you grow

Be thankful for your limitations
Cos' they give you opportunities to improve

Be thankful for every new challenge
Cos' it builds your strength and character

Be thankful for the mistakes you make,
It's only then you learn valuable lessons

Be thankful when you're tired and weary
Cos' it means you've made a difference

It's easy to be thankful for the good things
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are thankful for setbacks

Gratitude can turn a negative to a positive
So find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
Cos, they can, and will become your blessings.

To Whom Shall I Turn, If Not To Thee

Aum Sairam

Sri Sai Baba said the whole story in few words, "Unless you have
given it before, you do not get it now" Sri Sai Satcharitra Ch.XXXV.

How profoundly moving is the story of Draupadi's plight in the court
of Duryodhana!

Pulled by her hair by Dushasan who was eager to strip her naked,
Draupadi turned to the five Pandava brothers who hung their heads in
shame. They felt utterly helpless for they were now the slaves of
Duryodhana. They could do nothing. Even Bhima who was second to neon in
strength, now felt powerless to help her.

Then Draupadi turned to the Lord Shri Krishna, "But for thee, who is
there who will come to my rescue at this time of dire need?" she
cried out in anguish.

It is said, Shri Krishna appeared to her and said, "Draupadi, tell
me! Tell me if at any point of time you have given a single piece of
cloth to someone in need. If you have done so, then through that tiny
piece of cloth, i shall be able to save you, but I must have a starting
point somewhere!"

As a queen, countless must have been the instances when draupadi had
given away gifts of all kinds, including bales and bales of cloth. But
at this crucial moment, all she could recall was a simple and
spontaneous act of generosity. One day, she remembered, she was
standing on the river bank as a sanyasin was taking his bath. Suddenly,
a powerful current of water swept away the single loin cloth in which
the sanyasin was clad leaving him naked.

She saw and understood the plight of the sanyasin. Without a moment's
hesitation, she tore a piece out of her own Saree and threw it to the
sanyasin so that he could cover himself with it and come out of the waters.

This was all that Shri Krishna needed to save the honor of Draupadi.
Out of that piece of cloth, He drew out bales after bales of material,
till Dushasan fell to the ground, exhausted and defeated.

A Million Moments

Aum Sairam

The secret to life is living it ... one day at a time

Our lives are made up of a million moments, spent in a million
different ways. Some are spent searching for love, peace and harmony.
Others are spent surviving day to day. But there is no greater moment
than when we find that life, with all its joys and sorrows, is meant to
be lived one day at a time.

It's in this knowledge that we discover the most wonderful truth of
all. Whether we live in a forty-room mansion, surrounded by servants
and wealth, or find it a struggle to manage the rent month to month, we
have it within our power to be fully satisfied and live a life with
true meaning.

One day at a time ... we have that ability, through cherishing each
moment and rejoicing in each dream. We can experience each day anew,
and with this fresh start we have what it takes to make all of our
dreams come true. Each day is new, and living one day at a time enables
us to truly enjoy life and live it to the fullest.

Allah Malik

If You Plant

Aum Sairam

If you plant honesty, You will reap trust
If you plant goodness, You will reap friends
If you plant humility, You will reap greatness
If you plant perseverance, You will reap victory
If you plant consideration, You will reap harmony
If you plant hard work, You will reap success
If you plant forgiveness, You will reap reconciliation
If you plant openness, You will reap intimacy
If you plant patience, You will reap improvements
If you plant faith, You will reap miracles


If you plant dishonesty, You will reap distrust.
If you plant selfishness, You will reap loneliness
If you plant pride, You will reap destruction
If you plant envy, You will reap trouble
If you plant laziness, You will reap stagnation.
If you plant bitterness, You will reap isolation
If you plant greed, You will reap loss
If you plant gossip, You will reap enemies
If you plant worries, You will reap wrinkles
If you plant sin, You will reap guilt

So be careful what you plant now, It will determine what you will reap
tomorrow. The seeds you now scatter, Will make life worse or better
your life or the ones who will come after. Yes, someday, you will enjoy
the fruits, Or you will pay for the choices you plant today.

Allah Malik


The role of the feelings is important in the small affairs of life and
in the major ones. People invest more time and energy in subjects that
they love and where their feelings and emotions are involved. Did you
notice that when you do something you love you feel less tired and may
even be unaware of the passing time, while if you do something that you
do not like doing, you feel that time is passing slowly and you get
bored and tired easily and quickly?

You have to exercise control over your feelings and emotions, and learn
to evoke them in the right quantity, when you need them to push and
motivate you, or when you visualize or affirm.

How do you evoke feelings and strengthen them?

1. By thinking about the benefits you would get if you perform a
certain action, visualize or affirm.

2. By daydreaming about the end-result.

3. By awakening the feelings you had experienced about something you
really wanted, desired, and attained in the past, and trying to
transfer these feelings to the task on hand.

Feelings and emotions are important factors when using affirmations and
creative visualization. They energize and put power into the
affirmations or visualizations. There is a very great difference
between desiring something mildly, without emotion, and desiring it strongly.

You can repeat an affirmation in an absent-minded fashion and visualize
something with lack of interest, or you can put a lot of feelings in
them. In the first case you do not generate any current, while in the
second case you invest, awaken and create a great current of energy.

Remember, there are two elements in any action, the mental and
emotional. They both have to be present in order to make things happen.

Path Of Self Realization

Aum Sairam

Sri Sai Baba's physical or finite form has no doubt disappeared from
our view; but the infinite or spiritual form [Spirit of Baba] ever
lives. The Leelas which occurred during His lifetime have been dwelt
upon at great length up till now. Ever since His passing away, fresh
Leela's have taken place and are even now happening. This clearly shows
that Baba is ever-living and helping His devotees as before. The people
who got the contact of Sri Sai Baba when He was living, were indeed
very fortunate, but if any of them did not get a dispassion for the
things and enjoyments of the world and had not their minds turned to
the Lord, it was sheerly their ill-luck. What was then wanted and is
now wanted is the whole hearted devotion to Sri Sai Baba. All our
senses, organs, and mind should co-operate in worshipping and serving
Baba. It is no use in engaging some organs in the worship and
deflecting others. If a thing like worhsip or meditation is to be done,
it ought to be done with all our mind and soul.

The love that a chaste woman bears to her husband is sometimes compared
to that which a disciple bears to his master [Guru]. Yet the former
falls far short of the latter, which is incomparable. No one, whether
he be father, mother, brother or any other relation, comes to our aid
in attaining the goal of life [self-realization]. We have to chalk out
and traverse the path of self-realization ourselves. We have to
discriminate between the Unreal and the Real, renounce the things and
enjoyments of this world and the next, control our senses and mind, and
aspire for liberation only. Instead of depending upon others, we should
have full faith in ourselves. When we begin to practice discrimination,
we come to know, that the world is transient and unreal and our passion
for worldly things becomes less and less, and ultimately we get
dispassion or non-attachment for them. Then we know that the Brahma
which is no other than our Guru is the sole reality and as It
transcends and besets the seeming universe, we begin to worship It in
all creatures. This is the unitive Bhajan or worship. When we thus
worship the Brahma or Guru whole-heartedly, we become one with Him and
attain self-realization. In short, always chanting the name of the
Guru, and meditating on Him enables us to see Him in all beings, and
confers eternal bliss on us.

Purity Of Mind - Surety Of Grace

Aum Sairam

One day a certain devotee was pressing Sri Sai Baba's feet. Sri Sai
Baba suddenly ordered him to stop doing so. The devotee felt dejected
and appealed to Sri Sai Baba, with tears in his eyes, to accept his
service. But it was of no avail. At first he could not understand why
Sri Sai Baba had so suddenly reacted like that. But on cool
introspection, he realized that some unworthy thought had passed his
mind just at that moment. Sri Sai Baba was only responding to that.

One Hardwar Bua came to Shirdi. He always used to sit near the pillar
at the corner of the sacred fire in the Masjid. One day a girl sat at
that place. Hardwar Bua came there and commanded her to get up and sat
there. Sri Sai Baba flew into a rage and ordered all to clear out from
the Masjid and to sit in the front yard. After some time Hardwar Bua
again entered the Masjid and sat in his usual place. But Sri Sai Baba
again drove him out. Then the Bua realized that Sri Sai Baba displeased
with what he did to the girl. When everything belongs to God how can
anyone claim anything as his own, including the sitting place?

There were occasional flashes of lighter moods in Sri Sai Baba. At such
times, he used to play with his devotees. For instance, he used to hide
the turban of a devotee like Tatya and enjoy the fun. Sometimes he put
Tatya's turban on his own head, and used to mimic Tatya's manner
and walk.

Again, when Bhagat Mahalsapati was alone with him, Sri Sai Baba used to
press Bhagat Mahalsapati's feet! When the latter protested, Sri Sai
Baba used to say "Don't mind this. We are the same. People might say
great things of me. But I am no such."

Allah Malik

What is Aarti?

Aum Sairam

Aarti [Sanskrit] the offering of lights. Aarti is a mode of
congregational worship, in which the devotees stand facing the image of
a deity or a deified saint or, the personage ['living idol'] of an
exalted saint singing devotional songs in unison. Normally, the singing
is accompanied by musical instruments such as bells, gongs and cymbals.
The object of worship is devoutly decorated with posy garlands and,
aromatic incense and musk are kept smouldering. While the devotees sing
psalms, either an officiant or a devotee revolves clockwise, [usually]
a fivefold oil lamp-consisting of five oil-traylets-round the object of adoration.

Sri Sai Baba is known for the power of His presence, the purity and
integrity of His life and above all His ability to fulfil the heartfelt
needs, both spiritual and temporal, of those who come to Him with
humility and love.

Sri Sai Baba is watching all His children with love and care. He is
with us all the time

Allah Malik

Baba Says

Aum Sairam

Man's character gets transformed into good or bad depending on his
company. Noble company bestows noble feelings and bad company gives
rise to evil traits. Your speech and conduct are based on your
feelings. You deserve to be called a human being only when you develop
good feelings. Form alone does not constitute a human being. A true
human being is one who embodies good habits, helps ever and hurts
never. You should not merely be an Aakara Manava [human in form]; you
should become an Aachara Manava [human in conduct]. Speak good, see
good, do good and be good. Divinity will manifest in you only when your
conduct is good.

Vithal and Allah are One

Aum Sairam

Sri Sai Baba's religious views was perfectly impartial and
conservative, asking all people to keep their own religions and not to
interfere with others religions.

In that connection, he mentioned how in 1916, a Rohilla had come and
was loudly reciting the Koran at night. He was very pious and had high
regard for the attainments of Sri Sai Baba and treated him as
Paigambar, that is, as a prophet. He showed Sri Sai Baba great
reverence. Yet, he objected to Sri Sai Baba's heterodox doctrines and
practises, for instance, allowing the din of the arati with its music
in the mosque, allowing himself to be worshipped as God and his
partaking of food offered to idols who were devils in the Rohilla's
view. Sri Sai Baba laughed. So,the Rohilla was extremely perplexed. But
he was swayed by texts, which declared that heterodoxy, even in the
highest, should be punished with death.

He resolved suddenly that Baba should be killed in spite of his being a
Paigambar. One day he walked behind Sri Sai Baba carrying a huge club
and had raised it with a view to end Sri Sai Baba and his heterodoxy
together. Suddenly Sri Sai Baba turned back and fixed him with a glance
and touched his left wrist. At once the Rohilla cowered and sank like a
lump of lead. He was not able to lift up either himself or the club.
This man later left Shirdi for good.

Sri Sai Baba would not allow the Hindus to interfere with his loud
recitals of Koran at night disturbing the sleep of all people around.
Sri Sai Baba would not allow interference with the Rohilla in his
religious practice nor would he allow the Rohilla to interfere with the
Hindus' religious practice. Sri Sai Baba discountenanced intolerance in
every class and in every person. To Sri Sai Baba, Vithal and Allah were
one and all saints were the same.

Allah Malik

Rohilla's Story

Sai Ram

The story of the Rohilla illustrates Sri Sai Baba's all embracing
love. One Rohilla, tall and well built, strong as a bull, came to
Shirdi, wearing a long Kafni [robe] and was enamoured of Sai who stayed
there. Day and night he used to recite in a loud and harsh tone Kalma
[verses from Holy Koran] and shout ALLAH OH AKBAR [God is Great]. Most
people of Shirdi, were working in their fields by day and when they
returned to their homes at night, they were welcomed with the
Rohilla's harsh cries and shouts. They could get no sleep and felt
much trouble and inconvenience. They suffered in silence this nuisance
for some days, and when they could stand it no longer, they approached
Sri Sai Baba, and requested Him to check the Rohilla and stop the nuisance.

Sri Sai Baba did not attend to their complaint. On the contrary, Sri
Sai Baba took the villagers to task, and asked them to mind their own
business, and not the Rohilla. He said to them that the Rohilla had got
a very bad wife, a Zantippi, who tried to come in and trouble the
Rohilla and Himself; but hearing the Rohilla's prayers, she dare not
enter and they were at peace and happy.

In fact, the Rohilla had no wife and by his wife Baba meant DURBUDDHI
i.e. bad thoughts. As Sri Sai Baba liked prayers and cries to God
better than anything else, He took the side of the Rohilla, and asked
the villagers to wait and suffer the nuisance, which would abate in due course.

It Is Instantaneous

Aum Sairam

If you treat a Guru as a mere man, your sadhana will be a failure
perpetually. Faith in the Guru is specially needed for God realisation.
The Guru who has himself realised his soul as identical with a truth
expressed as "Main Allah Hum" works at the soul of his disciple, and
after seeing that it is duly prepared, and at the right moment, utter a
word or uses a gesture or makes other effort, and the effect is
instantaneous. The disciple is drawn into the same state of
Satchitananda resulting from the experience of Jiva-Brahma Aikya. This
is done in one minute or half a minute, as Shri Bhagwad Gita says -
'Nimishena Nimishardhena'. That is, In a moment or half a moment
the Guru and his disciple are in that realised state as a result of the
Guru's action and disciple's faith. This involves, no doubt, a
previous preparation under the Guru's care of the disciple's soul
for a very long time. But the final effect takes no time.

Effective Time Usage Determine Success

Aum Sairam

Everyday you make an investment of your time in your chosen activities.
You cannot save time for later use. You have to use it as it comes.
And you only have 24 hours to each day.

Try to get the most out of the time you have.
Focus your efforts on doing those things that will have the most
significant impact on your life and your work.
Do the important things first and stay focused on them until they are done.

Nothing makes you more effective than your ability to stay focused.
Challenge yourself to stay focused.
You'll be amazed at how much you'll get done, when you actually work
the whole time you're working.

Your time is precious and cannot be replaced.
Use it effectively with focus and get things done.

Don't serve time, make time serve you.

Allah Malik

The Illusion Of Attachment

Aum Sairam

When we ask for things from God we never give a thought to see our
qualifications to receive what we desire or ask for. Just as any
employment is based on qualifications either practical or educational
so also a sadhak has to be qualified to receive what he desires for.
In most of the cases we ask for things which would bring us into harm
and keep us away from our Guru, never we think that we should ask God
to shower His grace upon us and do what is needed for us as He knows
our past present and future and also knows our capability and capacity
to recieve things. Let us leave our short comings and desires at His
feet and accept either disappointment or fulfillment as His divine
blessings. For He knows what is best for us.

The illusion of attachment or the love for money is a deep whirlpool of
pain full of crocodiles in the form of conceit and jealousy. He, who is
desireless, can alone cross this whirlpool. Greed and Brahma are as
poles, they are eternally opposed to each other. Where there is greed,
there is no room for thought or meditation. Then how can a greedy man
get dispassion and salvation? For a greedy man there is no peace,
neither contentment, nor steadiness. If there be even a little trace of
greed in mind, all the spiritual endeavors are of no avail. Even the
knowledge of a well-read man, who is not free from the desire of the
fruit or reward of his actions, and who has got no disgust for the
same, is useless and can't help him in getting self-realization. The
teachings of a Guru are of no use to a man, who is full of egoism, and
who always thinks about the sense-objects. Purification of mind is
absolutely necessary; without it, all our spiritual endeavors are
nothing, but useless show and pomp. It is, therefore, better for one to
take only what he can digest and assimilate. My treasury is full, and I
can give anyone, what he wants, but I have to see whether he is
qualified to receive what I give. If you listen to Me carefully, you
will be certainly benefited.

How The Invisible Can Become Visible

Aum Sairan

Search for God inwardly. Infinite as He is, unsurpassed and boundless,
He resides in the tiny cave of the human heart. He is measureless,
incomprehensible, unknown, unknowable, eternal, invisible "But if you
search for Him with a longing heart and dedicate yourself, wholly,
solely and completely to Him in perfect purity of heart, mind and soul,
the Invisible will become visible. The wide universe is but a
manifestation of the Absolute Spirit.

Make your heart and soul vibrate with the thoughts of God, the Absolute
Spirit pervading the universe and you would feel a new impulse, a new
life, a new spirit, a new discovery of yourself. This self discovery is
God vision. It is the preparation for a life of eternity. Life becomes spiritualised.

To understand God who is spirit, man must become like spirit i-e.,
leave off the dross in him, which is the material part in him.
Self-surrender? self-purification, self-knowledge--these are the sure
footings, for the achievement of life's goal - God-realisation.

Allah Malik

God's Dynamic Touch

Aum Sairam

There is no religion higher than Truth and God is the only Reality.
Reach the Reality through the marg [path)] of Truth, even if the path
be narrow and sharp, like the edge of a razor. Worship God and God
alone, for He is the only Reality. He alone is worthy of worship and
none else. Make God the idol of your life. He and He alone is your
Guide, Friend, Protector and Helper, as you make your journey through the dreary
desert of life on the earth plane. The more you turn to Him, the more
He will succour and strengthen you. Keep to God and He will free you
from all earthly worries and cares. You will feel the fragrance of His
presence. Make God the fulcrum of your life. Get yourself woven in Him
by spreading thoughts of love and purity all around. He is around you,
within you, inside you. Feel His touch and your life would be full of
dynamic achievements. He is the dynamo, the great generator of
electricity in you. See this divine electricity which will transform
you and help you in transforming others in your scheme of beautifying
the world. It is God's dynamic touch that alone can transform you and
nothing else. Seek this divine fire, by your longing for God. The more
you long for Him, the more you concentrate on Him, in the inner temple
of your heart. He will ignite your heart, the minute you take His name
on your lips and thrill you with ecstatic delight. Make God the only
object of your life for He alone is the Reality, all else is Maya, an
illusion, a delusion.

Worship And Wisdom

Aum Sairam

You may ask why the burden of the consequences of acts done in previous
births cannot be easily brushed away; No they can be destroyed, as a
heap of cotton is burnt by a spark of fire. The spark of wisdom will
destroy the effect of karma.

These consequences are like the cloud of dust that follows a bus, when
it runs on fair weather road. When the bus reaches gravel road or
metalled road, the dust is less. When at last it enters the tarred
road, there is no dust. The mud track is karma; the metalled road is
upasana. the tarred road is jnana. By human skill and effort it is
possible to reduce the burden of past karma.

Soul Lives In Connection

We all seek Soul. While Soul is always present, it doesn't appear in
our lives automatically. Soul requires our attention and reflection.
Offering our respectful regard to the Soul is a way of loving it,
caring for it, nurturing it.

How do we experience soul in our lives?

It's so simple! STOP AND PAY ATTENTION! Soul lives in connection.
Whenever we are present and conscious, soul emerges.

To easily experience soul, find something you love to do and immerse
yourself in it. Consciously savour a favourite piece of music.
Consciously enjoy a walk in nature. Really experience your breathing
and the pounding of your heart as you exercise. Really be present to
your partner, your kids, your pet or another, and you will know the
contentment of soul.

I think that whenever soul is present, it's because what you're
doing, whom you're with, where you are, evokes love without your
thinking about it. You are totally absorbed in the place or person or
event, without ego and without judgment.

Baba's Day - Why Fear

Aum Sairam

Happy Baba's Day

When I fear losing my petty little possessions and security
Give me strength to never bend my knees before mighty and powerful

When I fear losing my name and identity
Give me strength to raise my mind high

When I fear losing my youth and passions
Give me strength to accept graciously the cycle of life

When I fear losing my near and dear ones
Give me strength to bear my sorrows

When I fear losing joy and happiness in life
Give me strength to surrender at Your feet

Strike me, Oh Lord, strike me at the very root and make me worthy of
your compassionate eyes and grace me with your motherly smile.

Labels Limit Us

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

How do you define yourself, to yourself and others? Are you first and
foremost a husband/wife? A mother/father? A bus driver, dentist,
musician ... ? A Christian, Muslim, Jew ...? A nag, joker, dreamer ...?

Be aware that any label puts limits on you. Today, experience how it
feels to let go of the labels to rest in 'I am.' Feel the freedom,
the spaciousness, the infinite potential of simply being.

With every breath, the possibility of a new aspect of self arises.

As long as I am this or that, I am not all things.

Message For Thursday

Aum Sairam

May this Thursday bring us closer to the holy feet of Sri Sai Baba and
may our love towards him grow many folds. He is our only saviour. Often
we go through the rollercoaster of emotions, of elation, jubiliation,
sorrow, sadness, depression, these are all the acts of our uncontrolled
mind which gets entangled in the web of worldly mysterys we are drawn
to things of sensual pleasure and thoughts. It is hard for us to move
away from thoughts and feelings but holding on to the feet of lord when
such thoughts arise will surely help us controll our mind. Let us pray
to god to hellp us control our mind and thoughts and always be
engrossed in his holy name and glory. On this Thursday this is the
message that I got from Shri Sai Satcharitra which is nothing but the
word of God himself. May Sri Sai Baba give us the wisdom to understand
and interpret His words and put them in to use in our lifetime.

"Now let us take story which shows how Sri Sai Baba appeared in the
form of His picture and fulfilled the desire of His devotee. In 1917 on
the full-moon morning, Shri Hemadpant had a vision. Sri Sai Baba
appeared to him in his dream in the form of a well-dressed Sanyasi,
woke him up, and said that He would come to him for meals that day.
This awakening constituted a part of the dream. When he fully awoke, he
saw no Sai nor any Sanyasi. But when he began to recollect the dream,
he remembered each and every word the Sanyasi uttered in his dream.
Though he was in contact with Sri Sai Baba for seven years and though
he always meditated on Sri Sai Baba, he never expected that Sri Sai
Baba would come to his house for meals. However, being much pleased
with Sri Sai Baba's words, he went to his wife and informed her that
being the Holi day, a Sanyasi guest was coming for meals and that some
more rice should be prepared. She enquired about the guest, who he was
and whence he was coming. Then not to lead her astray and not to cause any
misunderstanding he gave her the truth, i.e., told her about the dream.

She doubtingly asked whether it was possible that Sri Sai Baba should
come there [Bandra] from Shirdi, leaving the dainty dishes there for
accepting their coarse food. Hemadpant then assured her that Sri Sai
Baba might not come in person but He might attend in the form of a
guest and that they would lose nothing if they cooked some more rice. "

Sri Sai Baba bless us and guide us always. May Sri Sai Baba visit your
house and bless you and your family members with health, happiness and
prosperity may all your spiritual and materialistic desires be
fulfilled. God bless us always.

Sai's Stronger Love

Aum Sairam

Oh Sai, I haven't performed any penance or other austerities yet, the
most merciful Sai, You have taken me into your fold!

Is our love of Sri Sai Baba stronger than Sri Sai Baba's love and
compassion towards us? Can we love Sri Sai Baba beyond the realms of
desires and fear? Is it possible to imagine how "that" love would be
where there are no expectations from Sri Sai Baba? Can we love Sri Sai
Baba and just love Him forever and ever, willing to surrender our
everything? Is our faith in totality even at times of distress? Do we
remember Sri Sai Baba while laughing and crying? In Pain and Pleasures?
In tears of happiness and sorrow?

Sri Sai Baba loves us and He does without expecting any gains from us.
Sri Sai Baba needs nothing, nor He is in want of anything. What could
the "Viswagarbha", the one who has entire universe in His fold need? He
just asked for that two paisa from those that were willing to give him,
a virtue of the ancient link between Sri Sai Baba and those who are
drawn to him. For anyone that had different ways, He said, God will do good.

One sign of humility is the cognisance that it is Sri Sai Baba's love
and compassion that brought Him close to us and not our efforts to be
or our choice to serve Him and be devoted to Him. A sad bhaktha's
prerogative is to question his/her worthiness to receive Sadguru's
blessings. It is with this feeling one should ask how he/she could use
the body, mind, and wealth be spent in the service of Sri Sai Baba.
Love of Sadguru is manifold stronger than the affection that one would
sheepishly exhibit towards Sadguru as mere gratitude to the fulfilment
of a desire. Trying to know the difference is the beginning of the
understanding of universal love.

Aum Sairam

Everyone commits mistakes unless one is Perfect and One with God, but
love for Sri Sai Baba wipes away the mistakes. We must remember that
God is all Truth, all Beauty. And in our love for God, for Sri Sai
Baba, we must be 100% honest. Purity, honesty and love; God wants these
three. And you love Sri Sai Baba. So don't bother about anything.

Weaknesses will go; defects will go. Even if they linger on, love will
one day consume them. In the Ocean of Love, everything disappears.
However dirty one's mind be, the love one has will wipe it out
completely. In you, you have a lake of love for Sri Sai Baba. Even if
you were to wash your face -- all dirt -- every day in the lake of
Love, the lake would remain clear.

So for every defect, every weakness that persists, you need not bother;
it is being washed off. You must love with all your heart and honesty.
Love demands that you think not of yourself but of the Beloved. So
don't worry. Sri Sai Baba loves you; that really matters.

Free Yourself From All Bondage

Aum Sairam

If an individual is bound by a golden chain, will he be happy in that
situation? No! Bondage remains bondage, be it from a chain made of gold
or one made of copper or iron. So, even a pure, calm nature causes
bondage, and in the end you have to get rid of this also. You must free
yourself from all bondage. But until you reach divinity you need the
pure, calm, harmonious quality. Once you merge in the Lord, there are
no more distinguishing qualities of any kind. In that state the
question of the three qualities does not arise at all. When you have
offered up everything and become one with the Lord you rise above these
attributes and become totally free of all chains.

The Gita has taught that in order to control the mind, constant
practice and renunciation, are essential. Practice does not refer to
just the observance of daily religious rituals. Practice means using
the body, using the tongue and using the mind in such a way that you do
not develop attachment. Practice means orienting your whole life
towards the one goal of reaching the divinity. Every word you utter,
every thought you think and every deed you perform should be pure and
associated with truth. This is the essence of all austerities. Truth
and purity are the real instruments for success on the spiritual path.

Allah Malik

Seek The Inner Cause Of Problems

"When you arrive at your future, will you blame your past?"

What holds you back from being and doing more? In your journal, list
what you believe is holding you back.

Have you blamed people or factors outside of yourself? It's important
to understand that ALL problems are rooted inside us. Even the blocks
that appear to be outside of us are only reflecting back an issue we
have inside that we have not yet owned. Once we address our inner
issue, the outer situation no longer troubles us.

The buck always stops with us. We step into our power when we accept
responsibility for our lives.

"The most self-destructive thought that any person can have is thinking
that he or she is not in total control of his or her life. That's when,
'Why me?' becomes a theme song."

"Look at that word blame. It's just a coincidence that the last two
letters spell the word me. But that coincidence is worth thinking
about. Other people or unfortunate circumstances may have caused you to
feel pain, but only you control whether you allow that pain to go on.
If you want those feelings to go away, you have to say: 'It's up to me.'"

"Don't make excuses -- make good."

God Hear Our Prayers

Aum Sairam

Does any one know how to pray right? I heard that god doesn't answer my
prayers because I don't pray the right what is the right way?

Before praying we need to understand the meaning of the word prayer.
What does praying mean in every religion... are prayers different for
different religions. Is it that for one a prayer has one meaning and
different for the other?

Praying to God, the Almighty Creator carries equal meaning for all. God
never differentiates! In praying we ask of God for something. Even if
we do not ask for any material benefit for our own self we may ask for
the welfare of others. We may not ask of God something for us but for
the benefit of others... still, it is not necessary that our prayers
would be answered.

No one knows where lives God. None has ever seen him. Even the
representative of Jesus Christ on Mother Earth... the reverend John
Pope Paul can also not vouch for having seen God at any stage of his
life. Nor can any bishop or father or a priest! God is always hidden
from mankind... he cannot be seen but always felt! He exists
everywhere. In the eyes of God all are equal... he never differentiates
between a king and a commoner.

How is it that one is a king and the other a laborer? It is only our
thinking which makes one a king or a laborer. And while saying our
prayers it is only our thinking that shall affect the results of our
prayers. If we merely wish anything it is most likely that our prayers
shall remain unanswered. We need to perform our karm [the sum total of
all deeds performed by us] in daily life in a way that our wishes get
fulfilled. Only when we perform the right karma and also pray to God
for the results of our prayers in right earnestness... they get answered!

It is not something God has bestowed upon us... we have rightly earned
it by performing the right pious karma. Most people in their prayers
wish for something that is not contemporary of their karma. We cannot
expect mangoes to grow on a guava tree! What we get resulting our
prayers will be in full conformity of our actions performed.

In prayers we simply need to ask God for something... but we must also
offer to God something equivalent in return. If we need money then we
must commit to God for doing some charitable work for the community
where we live. Only then God hears our prayers. Prayers are never a
one way communication. God never commits to us anything that we do not
deserve. We get paid according to our karma. If we perform a sin then
hoping for a miracle in prayers is something we call wishful thinking.

There used to be a priest who believed in God to the utmost. He prayed
and practiced everything in the name of God. His faith in the God was

One day it so happened that the village in which he lived was deluded
with mighty rains that converted into a massive flood. As the
floodwaters encircled the house of the priest... he seemed to be the
least concerned. In spite of the fact the whole village was getting
emptied on utmost priority... he was at complete ease!

Sooner the floodwaters began to rise and reached the top of the first
story of the house. He observed that a log floated by... he could have
swum to safety clinging on to the log but he felt there was nothing to
be worried about. All this... in spite of the fact the priest did not
know how to swim.

After some more time when the floodwaters reached the danger mark... a
boat passed by and the occupants of the boat insisted upon him to take
a seat but he refused. He had un flailing faith in God and did not worry.

Finally the floodwaters reached the top of his house... if he did not
make an escape right now... he would be drowned. And as luck would
have it there came a helicopter and the pilot insisted upon him to
catch the ladder thrown by him but he refused and drowned.

When he reached the gates of heaven and was presented in front of God,
he enquired of him that in his lifetime he never failed to pray to God
never committed a sin yet God did not help him when he needed him most
and he died.

God replied! My dear son whom do you think it was who sent the log,
then the boat and finally the helicopter!

In the circumstances, can we still say that mere wishful praying would
get answered? Yes, we always get help from God in different ways but
still we need to perform our karma in a manner that our hopes and
desires get achieved.

Aum Sairam

For every Sai devotee, Sri Shirdi Sai Baba's life is the true
definition for Perfection. In Shri Sai Satcharitra, Shri Hemadpant
wrote Sri Sai Baba's teachings to his devotees how to lead a perfect
life. Sri Sai Baba's discourses clearly indicate to shun all the
differences of caste, creed and religion amongst us and treat everyone
equally. Throughout His life, Sri Sai Baba lived a perfect and simple
life without any attachments or desires. He always sought alms from the
people of Shirdi, when His devotees were ready to give anything and
everything. All He had was His clothes, a Satka and an empty tin. His
showed us how to lead a life with complete Vairagya, which in turn will
lead to Moksha. In all His preaching, Sri Sai Baba encouraged
righteousness and compassion towards the needy people. Sri Sai Baba
taught us how to achieve the level of perfection in every walk of life.
Thus Sri Sai Baba's avatar is a perfect definition of "PERFECTION" for
every devotee to lead a perfect life.

A Universal Principle

Aum Sairam

Everything seeks its source.

Our spiritual journey unfolds through 2 stages.

1. THE PATH OF PERSONALITY - We arise from the one source of all, to be
born as individuals in a world of form. In this physical world, we
experience separation and limitation. This is a time of immersion in a
world of effects, form, ego, distortion, illusion and pain.

2. THE PATH OF SOUL - When we have experienced enough pain, we find our
way back home to our spiritual source. We let go of the illusion of
separation to embrace unity and wholeness. We work with cause instead
of effects.

Paradoxically, it's only with a strong and healthy personality that we
become capable of expressing soul.

WHERE ARE YOU ON YOUR PATH? Are you struggling to do more and have
more? Are you aware of your soul challenging you to open to the bigger
picture of life?

Two people have been living in you all your life. One is the ego,
garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating; the other is the hidden
spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom you have only rarely heard
or attended to you have uncovered in yourself your own wise

Use Your Vision Carefully

Aum Sairam

Precognition does not necessarily restrict man's free will. It depends
entirely on the wisdom-Light of the one who has the knowledge of the
future and on his capacity to deal with the prediction. It may be
helpful to have the capacity to know the future, but one should not
pray to God to give him this capacity. One should pray to God only for
the fulfillment of His Will.

To know the future is good only if you have patience, faith and the
wisdom to use this knowledge in the proper way. Suppose you see that
something discouraging, disheartening and destructive is going to take
place in your life in the near future. Because you know in advance, you
have the opportunity to pray to God to avert the calamity.

On the other hand, if you see something good, divine, inspiring,
illumining and fulfilling is going to take place in the near future,
then you can start offering your sincere gratitude to God, and also you
can pray to God to expedite this fulfilling manifestation. God may
listen to your prayers and accelerate the process if He sees that you
truly value His blessings.

So if God blesses you with inner vision or with the capacity to know
the future, then you have to utilize it properly. There are people who
have the vision, but who are not wise enough to use it carefully. When
they predict disastrous future events, they create useless and
destructive fear in people, instead of inspiring them to pray for
protection or illumination.

Allah Malik

Whisper Of Heaven

Aum Sairam

He that has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken
down, and without walls.

When life is charging forward at breakneck speed, it seems nearly
impossible to have time to order and ground our souls.

We find ourselves engaged in roles and responsibilities that demand not
only our best effort, but also our greatest time and energy.

We can go on for some time without giving attention to our souls, but
the risk is great and the cost high.

We are left like a city without walls.

Disillusionment and dismay, malaise and melancholy march in like
soldiers and take control of the centre of our lives, and we are left
spiritually unbalanced, distorted, contorted.

Caring for our spiritual lives does require a measure of time and a
dose of priority, but it only takes a simple practise, not heroic
effort, in order to safeguard our souls. Try any of these:

Meditate for 10 minutes every morning, every night.

Awake with a prayer on your lips and speak to God when you close your
eyes in slumber.

Give your soul companionship with a spiritual community.

Write a letter to God every day.

Spend 30 minutes every day in nature and find yourself in God's
presence there.

A practise lived with regularity will not only keep your spiritual life
in balance, you'll also find you will feel the tenderness of God and
hear the whisper of heaven.

Renounce All Wordly Desire

Aum Sairam

One should always avoid evil company and take to the company of the
virtuous. The company of those whose entire outlook is worldly is
very harmful. To say nothing of living things, even the association of
lifeless objects, which tempt the mind and attract the senses,
should be given up.

One should never utter even by mistake, nor hear anything in opposition
to God. It is the greatest sin to utter or hear such words.

Freeing the mind from the feelings of attraction and repulsion, one
should enjoy objects of pleasure through the senses dispassionately
and not with the feeling of love and hatred, nor as a slave of the
senses, making them your slaves, rather than be a slave to them and
carry out their orders.

The greatest obstacle in the path of an aspirant is the desire for
fame. It is easy to renounce the attraction for wealth or woman, but
it is exceedingly difficult to renounce the attraction for fame.

The seat of happiness is your mind. Happiness does not lie in any
action or particular object. If the mind is peaceful, you are happy,
otherwise there is misery and misery alone. To attain peace of mind it
is necessary to renounce all worldly desires.

Aum Sairam

The Lord Himself has settled the nature of His worship for every age.
Chanting of His Holy name is the prescribed sadhana for the present
age. This is the age of sins sorrows, natural and man made calamities.
Jealousy and Hatred dominate the human mind.

The Holy Name is the Divine medicine to save us from the chronic
disease of worldliness.

The Divine Name is the most powerful remedy for delivering one from the
sinister influences of infatuation and ignorance.

Taking recourse to constant chanting of the Divine Name one becomes
eligible for the grace of the Lord.

The Divine medicine strikes at the very root of a terrible suffering of
this repeated cycle of birth and death.

The Holy Name is not a mere composition of Sanskrit alphabets; it is
pregnant with many mystic potentialities. It attracts the Utterer and
the Hearer. This Divine Nama is the only wealth that multiplies when stolen.

When the dying Ajamil by unintentionally uttering the Name of Sri Hari
while calling his son by His name, could attain Vaikunta Dham, how much
more beneficial would the result be if the Name itself is chanted with
Implicit faith.

The glory of the Divine Name lies beyond the scope of Human
intelligence and arguments.

If one believes in God, he must necessarily believe the word of God as
well. Mere lip service either to the Lord or His Saying i.e., the
Sastras, would not serve the real purpose.

Style of Teaching

Aum Sairam

As for Sri Sai Baba's style of teaching, He did not deliver lectures
and rarely gave formal teachings. He has never written anything by way
of wordy philosophy. Rather, He taught orally by parable, direct
experience and the example of His own life. He assures all that each
could experience. His Devine Love and blessings flew directly and not
through any intermediary. All would experience fulfillment of their
worldly desires and also perfect satisfaction of their craving for self
realization [Aatma Bodha]. There is no exception to this experience.

Sri Sai Baba's way is to cater directly to the needs of each
individual and He did not require His devotees to take up any rituals
or conventionally prescribed practice, nor did He favored any
particular path over another. Sri Sai Baba generally discouraged people
from changing their chosen form of worship in God and never advised
total detachment from worldly life and changeover of preference for a
particular deity as God. He advised perfect loyalty in and faith in the
power and blessings of the Almighty [Allah Malik] and patience for the
results of action (Karma). As a result of Sri Sai Baba's grace,
devotees experience self-generated conviction and faith that whatever
their desires and aspirations are, they will never go unnoticed by Sri
Sai Baba and they would not return empty-handed from Sri Sai's Court [Darbar].

Aarti With Meaning

Aum Sairam

In the Hindu household, dusk and dawn, hold a special significance as
far as prayer is concerned, as it is during this transition [From dawn
to morning, and dusk to evening] that negativity needs to be burnt and
righteousness welcomed.

Traditionally the Aarti is performed during the morning and evening in
a Hindu household.

The Aarti consists of a small flame, which burns on a wick, placed on a
plate, which is rotated round the Deity.

The Ritual of the Aarti makes the light of the flame dispel darkness,
the incense that is burnt gives out fragrance, a bell is rung, hands
are clapped while one sings the Aarti. All the above is very good to
ward of an evil eye!

The Aarti reminds us of the greatness of the Lord, because the flame
that we rotate is symbolic of the Cosmos [Sun, Moon, Stars] revolving
around the Almighty paying obeisance to Him.

A beautiful prayer is sung, for the Lord of the Universe Jagadeesh.

Jagadeesha comes from 2 words Jagat and Eeshwara

Jagat means Creation and Eeshwara means Lord.

Om Jaya Jagadeesha harey Swaami Jaya Jagadeesha harey
Bhakta janon key sankata, daas jano key sankata,
Kshana mein door Karey Om Jaya Jagadeesha harey

It means:
Salutation to Thee, O Lord of the universe,
Thou, who, in an instant, removes the sorrows and problems, of those
who love Thee! Salutations unto Thee

Jo Dhyaavey Phala Paavey Dukha Vinasey Mana kaa
Sukha Sampati Ghara Aavey, Kashta Mitey Tana kaa
Om Jaya Jagadeesha harey

It means:
Thou reward Thy devotees, who sing Thy praise, by removing their mental
afflictions. Joy, prosperity and health enter the homes of those who
pray to Thee!

Maat Pitaa Tum Merey Sharana Gahoon kiski
Tum Bin Aur na Doojaa Aash karoon Jiski Om Jaya

It means:
Thou art my Mother and Father, whose refuge I seek; There is no one
else beside Thee, who I could really count on!

Tuma Purana Paramaatmaa
Tuma Antaryaami Par Brahma Parameshvara
Tuma Sabake Swami Om Jay

It means:
Thou art Complete and Perfect! There is nothing hidden from Thee! Thou
art Perfect, Eternal, Absolute. The Lord of all Creation!

Tuma Karunaa Ke Saagar Tuma Paalana Kartaa
Mai moorakh khal kaami
Mai Sevaka Tum Swami Kripaa Karo Bharataa - Om Jay.....

It means:
Thou art an Ocean of Compassion, Thou art the Protector of all, I am
ignorant, O Lord! I am but your Servant, while Thou art my Master! Do
Have Mercy on me!

Tum Ho Ek Agochara Sabkey Praanapati
Kisa Vidhi Miloon Dayaamaya Tuma ko main kumati - Om Jay......

It means:
Thou art the One. The Real Essence. The Life of all lives. How do we
unite? I, who am so ignorant, and Thou who art All Merciful?

Deena Bandhu Dukha Harataa Thaakur Tum merey Swaami Rakshaka tum Mere Apney
haath uthaao, apney charan lagaao, Dwaar para main terey, Om Jay..

It means:
Thou, art the Succour of the oppressed, and the Remover of pain and
sorrow. Thou
art my Protecting Force! I beseech Thee to Raise Thy hand, so that I
surrender to Thee!

Vishaya Vikaar Mitaao Paap Haro Devaa
Shraddhaa Bhakti Badhaao Santan Ki Sevaa - Om Jay.....

It means:
Help me to get rid of my imperfections and vices,
Bless me with increasing faith, and spirit of service to the devout!

Tan Man sab tera, sab kuchh hai tera,
Tera tujhko arpan, kyaa laagey mera. Om Jay......

It means:
All that I possess belongs to Thee,
I offer Thee what in reality is Thine, As nothing is truly mine!

Call Me To Shirdi

Aum Sairam

Shirdi mein mujhe bulaale re...
Jee karta hain mere Sai.. main Shirdi mein hee bas jaaoon
Lekin jab tak tu na chaahe.. main Shirdi main kaise aaoon
Shirdi mein mujhe bulaale re...
Shirdi mein mujhe bulaale re..

I wish I could come stay in Shirdi for ever and ever Oh Sai!
But, how could I? Unless you wish I could!
Call me to Shirdi my Sai....Call me to Shirdi!

Sri Sai Baba said, I draw to Me My man from far off, or even across the
seven seas, like a sparrow with a string fastened to its feet. He also
made it clear to him that if he were not Baba's man, he would not be
attracted to Him and given a darshan. Sri Sai Baba also said that He is
not the three cubits long body that lived in Shirdi but He will
manifest wherever there is true longing and devotion. The above
statements may appear to contradict unless one sees the real context in
which they are uttered or used. Realizing Sri Sai Baba in places other
than Shirdi is a true pursuit of Sri Sai Baba in the attempts to see
Sri Sai Baba in every being. However, visiting a pilgrim center such as
Shirdi is a recommended practice for a Saadhaka. It is a suggested that
every Muslim must do Haj at least once in his lifetime. It is also true
that visiting Babylon is one of the desires of most Christians.

The physical presence of a devotee in Shirdi, the taste of its water,
soil, and breeze, the perfumes of the air and the chanting of the Aarti
in the presence of so many other devotees has a magical effect.
Standing in Samadhi Mandir, in front of the piercing eyes of love and
compassion does away with the pain and suffering of the visitors with
one stroke. The assurances of material and spiritual wealth come to
reality. Once a devotee steps on the soil of Shirdi, his life is set on
a different course. One immense longing that a devotee leaves Shirdi
with is that he should return to Shirdi. The power of the magic soil is such.

Inner Peace

Aum Sairam

No price is too great to pay for inner peace. Peace is the harmonious
control of life. It is vibrant with life-energy. It is a power that
easily transcends all our worldly knowledge. Yet it is not separate
from our earthly existence. If we open the right avenues within, this
peace can be felt here and now.

Peace is eternal. It is never too late to have peace. Time is always
ripe for that. We can make our life truly fruitful if we are not cut
off from our Source, which is the peace of eternity. The greatest
misfortune that can come to a human being is to lose his inner peace.
No outer force can rob him of it. It is his own thoughts, his own
actions, which rob him of it.

Peace is life. Peace is bliss eternal. Worries mental, vital and
physical do exist. But it is up to us whether to accept them or reject
them. To be sure, they are not inevitable facts of life. Since our
Almighty Father is All-Peace, our common heritage is peace. It is a
Himalayan blunder to widen the broad way of future repentance by
misusing and neglecting the golden opportunities that are presented to us.

We must resolve here and now, amidst all our daily activities, to throw
ourselves, heart and soul, into the sea of peace. He is mistaken who
thinks that peace will, on its own, enter into him near the end of his
life's journey. To hope to achieve peace without spirituality or
meditation is to expect water in the desert.

We will own peace only after we have totally stopped finding fault with
others. We have to feel the whole world as our very own. When we
observe others' mistakes, we enter into their imperfections. This does
not help us in the least. Strangely enough, the deeper we plunge, the
clearer it becomes to us that the imperfections of others are our own
imperfections, but in different bodies and minds.

Whereas if we think of Baba, His compassion and His Divinity enlarge
our inner vision of Truth. We must come in the fullness of our
spiritual realization to accept humanity as one family.

Muslim Vishnu

Aum Sairam

His devotees swear Sri Sai Baba is God and why not? Sri Sai Baba,
although a human being, had all attributes of God. He was omniscient,
he was aware of everything that happened anywhere and everywhere
including what passed through the minds of human beings and creatures.

He would read the past and the future of his devotees. He was
omnipresent. He was simultaneously present in a number of places to the
utter surprise and delight of his devotees and this has been vouched
for by devotees who saw him in Mumbai at the puja room of a devotee and
in Shirdi at the same time.

He controlled the elements and he shaped events to happen differently
from what they would have in the normal course. He read men's
thoughts hundreds and thousands of miles away and no one who came to
Dwarakamai could have thoughts without Baba being aware of them the
moment they originate.

He proved oneness with all Gods and Saints. And more than anything else
his love and compassion for all creations of God were so deep and all
embracing that only God could shower them in such abundance. What
devotees prayed to the deities they worshipped in home or temples they
received by the mere glance of this living God who assured them
protection and security, fulfilled all their desires and made them happy.

Is it then any wonder that they came to believe that he was God walking
on earth? It did not matter to them that he appeared to belong to
another religion [and he was supremely indifferent and did not think it
necessary to reveal his true self to them] but he was God all the same
to them and some called him Muslim Vishnu.

Baba's Thoughts for Deepavali

Aum Sairam

Today is Deepavali when you consume sweets, but, the component that
sweetens every dish is sugar. So too, the article that bestows the
characteristics of Existence [It is], Knowledge [It can be known], and
Ananda [it confers joy], on every "thing" and "being" is the Atma,
which, when Name-bound and Form-bound, is God.

Allah Malik

Deepavali Delights

Deepavali is here, Deepavali is here that grand festival of Lights that
ends evil after a protracted fight when good with all its might leads
us from darkness to Light.

Deepavali is here, Deepavali is here that great festival of sound when
crackers and laughter abound when crackers and sparklers light up the
sky when delighted children jump with joy.

Deepavali is here, Deepavali is here that gorgeous festival of snacks
and sweets where everyone enjoys a royal feast when old and young with
delight meet with love and affection all hearts beat.

Deepavali is here, Deepavali is here that gracious festival which
celebrates victory the ancient festival of myth and mystery that is
mentioned in both mythology and history the festival that signals
Triumph over Tragedy.

Happy Diwali

Aum Sairam

Sri Sai Baba bless us all on this holy occasion. May He destroy
wickedness and weakness and light up our hearts with compassion,
empathy, love and giving.

Happy Diwali to you all Sai Brothers and Sai Sisters.

Very appropriate message for this Diwali, the festival of lights when
good wins over evil. The root cause for all acts of evil in this
society is ignorance. Not knowing that we all are one and connected to
the supreme spirit. Perhaps we can liken ourselves to a bunch of
grapes or pomegranate fruit. There are many fruits all attached to the
same stalk in grapes and core in a pomegranate fruit. It is our mind
that plays tricks and differentiates each one based on personal biases.
When the same spirit lives in all of us, when our atman is equal to
Para atman how can we be different? When we destroy or remove the veil
of ignorance off our minds and light it up with the understanding that
God alone is truth and it is love that makes the world go round then
anarchy will come to an end. There could be no better place than earth
to live on. But God has His own ways of bringing balance in the nature
and He pulls the wires and man acts as a puppet. On this holy day let
us beg Sri Sai Baba to remove darkness and light up love in our hearts
for everybody.

Saints Mission

We have seen before, that the purpose or object of Divine Incarnation
is to protect the good and destroy the wicked. But the mission of the
Saints is quite different. To them the good and the wicked are the
same. First they feel for the evil-doers and set them on the right
path. They are like the Agasti to destroy the Bhava-sagar [the ocean of
worldly existence] or like the Sun to the darkness of ignorance. The
Lord [God] dwells in the Saints. In fact they are not different from
Him. Our Sri Sai is one of these, who incarnated for the welfare of the
devotees, Supreme in knowledge and surrounded with divine luster, He
loved all beings equally. He was unattached.

Foes and friends, kings and paupers, were the same to Him. Hear His
powers. For the sake of devotees, He spent His stock of merits and was
ever alert to help them. But the devotees could never approach Him,
unless He meant to receive them. If their turn did not come, Sri Sai
Baba did not remember them, and His Leela's could not reach their
ears. Then, how could they think of seeing Him? Some men desired to see
Sri Sai Baba's but they did not get any opportunity of taking His
darshan, till His Mahasamadhi. There are many such persons, whose
desire for Sri Sai Baba's darshan was not thus satisfied. If these
persons, believing in Him, listen to His Leela's, their quest for
milk [darshan] will be, to a great extent, satisfied by the butter-milk
[Leela's]. If some persons went there by sheer luck and took Sri Sai
Baba's darshan, were they able to stay there longer? No. Nobody could
go there of his own accord, and nobody could stay there long even if he
so wished. They could stay there, so long as Sri Sai Baba permitted
them to stay, and had to leave the place when asked to do so by Sri Sai
Baba; so everything depended of Sri Sai Baba's will. "Chapter X11.

God's Word Acts Like A Seed

Aum Sairam

The seed is the word of God.

A seed is much smaller than what it produces.

The problem you face may seem huge. In comparison, a scripture may seem
very small. But when planted, that Word will grow in you and overcome
the problem.

A seed always produces after its kind.

Whatever you need, or desire, find scriptures relating to that. Then
plant those scriptures inside you in abundance. Those seeds will grow
up and produce a harvest of what you need or desire.

A seed is alive: it contains life.

Your physical senses are incapable of judging whether a seed is alive
or not. You cannot see, feel, hear, smell, or taste the life in a seed.
There is only one way to prove a seed is alive -- plant it.

A seed does nothing until planted.

Seeds do not grow sitting in a sack on your shelf. They must be planted
in the proper place.

If you desire the Word of God to produce in your life, you must decide
to plant the Word in your heart and mind.

The best way to plant the seed of God's Word in your life is by
speaking the Word. Hearing others speak the Word is good -- but will
not produce as bountiful a harvest as speaking the Word yourself.

Speaking God's Word with your mouth is essential. As we speak God's
Word we are planting the seed in our heart for the harvest of results
we desire.

For with the heart one believes to righteousness, and with the mouth
confession is made to salvation.

Whatever you need to be saved or delivered from, confession (what you
say) is essential.

SAY THIS: God's Word is a seed that will produce blessing in my life,
so I will plant it in my heart and mind by hearing it, reading it, and
speaking it.

Significance of Baba Mentioning About Shaving the Head

Aum Sairam

An old lady Smt. Radhabhai Deshmukh came to Shirdi seeking a sacred
mantra from Sadguru Sri Sai Baba and went on fasting until the
fulfillment of her desire. Upon Shama's intervention Sri Sai Baba
called her and told her His own story pleasingly like a loving son. Sri
Sai Baba persuaded her to stop her fasting, as He Himself did not
receive any mantra from His Guru. He followed his Guru's order, shaved
His head, and submitted two paisa faith and patience as offering.
Although Sri Sai Baba served his Guru for twelve complete years with
total surrender, he did not receive any mantra from his Master. Guru's
blessing was the only mantra He received.

Here by shaving His head, Sri Sai Baba was rid of all His desires and
served His Master with great devotion. The desires are the darker
forces, innumerable in nature similar to the hair that grows on the
head [desires sprout from the mind that is seated in the head]. The
countless extrovert desires dissipate the energy and enthusiasm of the
spiritual seeker in seeking the ultimate goal.

Also mundane desires are the root cause of endless sufferings and
contribute to the downfall of an individual. In Shri Bhagavad Gita (II:
62-63) it is said that when a man thinks of objects, attachment for
them arises; from attachment desire is born; from desire arises anger.
From anger comes delusion; from delusion loss of memory; from loss of
memory the destruction of discrimination; from destruction of
discrimination, he perishes.

Also Gautam Buddha upon attaining His Nirvana realized the truth that
the desires were the root cause of the human suffering and symbolizing
that He shaved His head and preached the same truth in those times.

Waiting for God

Aum Sairam

While walking across the paddy fields in the vicinity of the
Dakshineswar Temple, Sri Ramakrishna's disciple said to him, Master,
for many years have I worshipped God and called out to Him with tears
in my eyes. I have led a chaste life, served friends and strangers
alike to the best of my abilities. But the Almighty is still
unattainable for me. And many a times I a struck by the thought that
the time devoted by me to prayer and meditation has all gone waste.

The Master smiled. Then pointing towards the tillers of the soil
working in nearby fields, he said, There are two classes of farmers
those who are farmers by birth, because there are ancestors were
farmers and they keep on tilling the soil even though it does not rain
for years together and they harvest no crop. Come famine, come floods,
they despair not! They do not desert their fields.

And there is the other group of farmers who take to tilling the land
with the sole motive of making profits. Thus he is disheartened by a
single season of drought.

The Master continued, the true devotee of God never gives up his
devoted services. He keeps on repeating the Name of God, he continues
singing the glories of the Beloved and he keeps on shedding unbound
tears even though he isn't once blessed with the vision of God.

On another occasion the Master said the pearl diver dives again and
again into the sea and though every time he comes out empty handed, he
does not despair continuing his search with the assurance that his
quest will bear fruit.

The pilgrim in search of God must do likewise. If you have a vision of
God after several months of strenuous devotional practice do not give
up. But intensify your efforts and wait in patience. For remember
always His delays are not denials. The Lord ever appeared to His
devotees at the right time.

Value Of Poverty

Aum Sairam

Baba said, "Fakir [Mendicancy] was the real Lordship as it was
everlasting, and the so called Lordship [riches] was transient" in Shri
Sai Satcharitra, Ch.VIII.

Ibrahim bin Adam was the king of Balkh. He renounced his throne and
wealth to become a fakir, a wandering mendicant in quest of God.

One day, in the course of his wandering, he came across a beggar by the
wayside. Lean as a scarecrow, clad in tatters, the man complained
bitterly against God, cursing Him for the poverty that had been his lot
in life.

"How can you curse God for such a valuable gift" Ibrahim asked the
poor man.

The beggar stared at him in astonishment. "Are you mad?" he cried
out. "Does poverty have any value?"

The wandering mendicant, who was once upon a time a great king, replied
calmly, "Yes, indeed! I bartered away my entire kingdom to acquire
poverty. Therefore, I know its true value!"

Suffering poverty and privation are processes by which we are purified,
and move closer to God. But few of us can accept these as such!

Are You A Bucket Filler Or A Dipper

You have heard of the cup that overflowed. This is a story of a bucket
that is like the cup, only larger, it is an invisible bucket. Everyone
has one. It determines how we feel about ourselves, about others, and
how we get along with people. Have you ever experienced a series of
very favorable things which made you want to be good to people for a
week? At that time, your bucket was full.

A bucket can be filled by a lot of things that happen. When a person
speaks to you, recognizing you as a human being, your bucket is filled
a little. Even more if he calls you by name, especially if it is the
name you like to be called. If he compliments you on your dress or on a
job well done, the level in your bucket goes up still higher. There
must be a million ways to raise the level in another's bucket. Writing
a friendly letter, remembering something that is special to him,
knowing the names of his children, expressing sympathy for his loss,
giving him a hand when his work is heavy, taking time for conversation,
or, perhaps more important, listing to him.

When one's bucket is full of this emotional support, one can express
warmth and friendliness to people. But, remember, this is a theory
about a bucket and a dipper. Other people have dippers and they can get
their dippers in your bucket. This, too, can be done in a million ways.

Let's say I am at a dinner and inadvertently upset a glass of thick,
sticky chocolate milk that spills over the table cloth, on a lady's
skirt, down onto the carpet. I am embarrassed. "Bright Eyes" across the
table says, "You upset that glass of chocolate milk." I made a mistake,
I know I did, and then he told me about it! He got his dipper in my
bucket! Think of the times a person makes a mistake, feels terrible
about it, only to have someone tell him about the known mistake ["Red
pencil" mentality!]

Buckets are filled and buckets are emptied? Emptied many times because
people don't really think about what are doing. When a person's bucket
is emptied, he is very different than when it is full. You say to a
person whose bucket is empty, "That is a pretty tie you have," and he
may reply in a very irritated, defensive manner.

Although there is a limit to such an analogy, there are people who seem
to have holes in their buckets. When a person has a hole in his bucket,
he irritates lots of people by trying to get his dipper in their
buckets. This is when he really needs somebody to pour it in his bucket
because he keeps losing.

The story of our lives is the interplay of the bucket and the dipper.
Everyone has both. The unyielding secret of the bucket and the dipper
is that when you fill another's bucket it does not take anything out of
your own bucket. The level in our own bucket gets higher when we fill
another's, and, on the other hand, when we dip into another's bucket we
do not fill our own ... we lose a little.

For a variety of reasons, people hesitate filling the bucket of another
and consequently do not experience the fun, joy, happiness,
fulfillment, and satisfaction connected with making another person
happy. Some reasons for this hesitancy are that people think it
sounds "fake," or the other person will be suspicious of the motive, or
it is "brown-nosing."

Therefore, let us put aside our dipper and resolve to touch someone's
life in order to fill their bucket.

Good timber does not grow with ease. The stronger the wind the stronger
the trees.

Half a man's wisdom goes with his courage.

Hard things are put in our way, not to stop us, but to call out our
courage and strength.

Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small
ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, to
sleep in peace. God is awake.

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself.

Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but
instantly set about remedying them - every day begins the task anew.

He who fears being conquered is sure of defeat.

Health, happiness and success depend upon the fighting spirit of each person

The big thing is not what happens to us in life but what we do about
what happens to us.

Heart in champions has to do with the depth of your motivation and how
well your mind and body react to pressure.

I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do.

I do not wish to treat friendships daintily, but with the roughest
courage. When they are real, they are not glass threads or frost-work,
but the solidest thing we know.

A Sai Miracle

Aum Sairam

Once Sri Sai Baba performed a miracle before which all other
supernatural powers pale into insignificance. This was to revive the
dead. The daughter of the maternal aunt of Vasudeo Sitaram
Ratanjanakar, who had come to Shirdi, had this experience. Tuberculosis
had developed out of low fever the daughter was getting.

As treatment of doctors had proved ineffective, she was being given
only Udi of Sri Sai Baba as medicine. She also began saying that unless
she had the darshan of Sri Sai Baba, she would not get well.

Though the girls condition wad delicate , Ratanjanakar brought her to
Shirdi and took her for Sri Sai Baba's darshan. Sri Sai Baba let off
a volley of abuses and said, let her lie on the kambal [coarse blanket]
and keep her on water. Accordingly, she was given only water for seven
days and on the eighth day the girl died in the morning when it was
time for Sri Sai Baba to wake up.

That morning Sri Sai Baba was in chawdi but he did not get up at the
usual time. It was eight 'O' clock and yet Sri Sai Baba was asleep. It
was first time in the history of Shirdi for Sri Sai Baba to wake up so
late. People began attending to the arrangements for the funeral of the
girl. The girl's mother and Ratananjanakar's mother were weeping
and other devotees were trying to pacify them. Just then the girl made
some movement, yawned and looked around bewildered. All were glad on
seeing this. Then the girl narrated the following account: A black man
was forcibly taking her away when she called out to Sri Sai Baba.
Immediately Sri Sai Baba belabored the man with his staff, rescued her
and took her to chawdi. The girl had not seen chawdi but she described
it vividly. While all this was happening in Dixitwada where
Ratananjanakars were staying, people were discussing animatedly why Sri
Sai Baba was still asleep.

Suddenly, Sri Sai Baba got up in Chawdi, shouting loudly, and striking
his staff on the ground, ran in the direction of Dixitwada. There was
excitement all around, and the hearts of the bhakthas [devotees] were
filled with joy and wonder at the miracle Sri Sai Baba performed in
this mortal world.
