505.    Let all our humbag (paraphernalia) be with us, you go back to your home, beware if you come to this Masjid.

506.    Let the senses do their allotted work, or duty, we should not meddle with
their work.

507.    Leaving out pride and egoism and with no trace of them, you should surrender yourself to me who am seated in your heart.

508.    Living or dead, I will have, what I have been praying for.

509.    Let him place there only the ancient stones that his family has been worshipping from old times and no new image.

510.    Let us have nothing to do with such ill-fated wealth.

511.    Look at this Haridas who leaves you and go away. Have friends that will stick to you till the end, I will never leave anyone in the middle.

512.    Look at the Bamniya (corrupt and contemptuous from the word Brahmin) He eats onion on Ekadasi.

513.    Let the man (Jawar Ali) claiming to be a Guru claim. Let us humble as Sishyas. We must depend upon somebody or have somebody depend upon us. Other courses will not lead us the Supreme goal.

514.    Lust ruins mental balance and strength or firmness. It affects the learned

515.    Lo I there was a tree (or log). One came down. The other went up. You will come to know.

516.    Look! He would not be content to come alone on others being brought.

517.         Let this man go and beg food for Me.

518.    Last night you fed Me, but gave no Dakshina. Now give Me Dakshina.

5! 9.    Let Me see who dare to beat you.

520.    Last evening we were thinking of this, were we not?

521.    Mother, I had been to your house in Bandra with a view to have something to eat. I found the door Locked. I some how got an entrance inside and found to My regret that Bhau (Mr. Tarkad) had left nothing for Me to eat. So I have returned unappeased,

522.    Mother, you have fed Me sumptuously upto My throat, My afflicted pranas (life forces) have been satisfied. Ever Act like this. First give bread to the hungry and then eat yourself. Note this well.

523.    My property consisted of one kowpin (codpiece), one stray piece of cloth, one kafni and a tumrel (tinpot), and all the people troubled Me with bringing all these unnecessary useless things and costly articles.

524.    My abode is in your heart and I am  within  you.

525.    Many people come to Me and ask for wealth, health, power, position cure of diseases and other temporal matters.

526.    Mumuksha or intense desire to get free and he who thinks that he is bound and that he should get free from bondage and works earnestly and resolutely to that end and does not care for any other thing, is qualified for spiritual life.

527.    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.

528.    My Guru had His own way. He first got My head shaved and asked Me two pice as Dakshina and I gave the same atonce. If you say that My Guru was perfect, why should Hs ask for money and how should He be called desireless ? I replied plainly that He never cared for coins. What had He to do with them ? His two pice were (1) Firm Faith and (2) Patience or Perseverance. I gave these two pice or things to Him and He was pleased.

529.    My Guru was full of love nay, He was love incarnate How can I describe it? He loved Me most. Rare is a Guru like Him.

530.    My Guru was My sole refuge and My mind was always fixed on Him. This is Firm Faith and that this is one piece of Dakshina. Saburi (Patience or Perseverence) is the other piece of Dakshina.

531.    My Guru never expected anything from Me than Faith and Patience.

532.    My Guru never neglected Me, but protected Me at all times.

533.    My Guru always protected Me by His glance, just as the tortoise feeds her young ones whether they are near her or away from her on the other side of the river bank by her loving looks.

534.    My method is quite unique. Remember well this one story and it will be
very useful.

535.    Mediate always on My formless nature which is knowledge incarnate,
consciousness and bliss.

536.    My word is the decree of the Brahma (Almighty).

537.         Mere reading won't do, you have to think and carry out what you read, otherwise it is of no use.

538.    Mere book learning without the grace of (he Guru and self realisation is of
no avail).

539.    Megha, draw a Trident.

540.    My Guru become My all-in-all, My borne and property, Mother and Father

541.    My master (Guru) was of different type. By His grace, realization flashed upon Me of itself, without effort or study.

542.    My Sircar (God) says 'Take, Take,' but every­body comes to Me and says
'Give, Give,'

543.    My Sircar's (God's) treasury (Spiritual wealth) is full, it is over flowing. I say dig out and take away this wealth in cartloads, the blessed son of a true mother should fill himself this wealth.

544.    My arms, abdomen and waist are paining for a long time.

545.    My Fakir's wife left Me with "Venkusa" at Selu and I stayed with Him 12 years and left Selu.

546.    Mansions will arise in this village (Shirdi). Bigwigs will come. Guns will be fired. Grand Procession will be held.

547.    My art also is a sort of Astrology.   But you people do not understand this.

548.    My Gajanan is gone (Gajanan Maharaj).

549.    My Guru was a Brahmin, "Venkusa” of Selu.

550.    My Children arrived and none looked after them and you made them upas (i. e. eat light tiffen).

551.    Mother, I am coming to your house. Tell your husband not to reject me.

552.    My money was carried away by people. I said nothing, but quietly followed them killed them and recovered My money (Money is not the real money and killing the people is also likewise).

553.    Mere appearance of worldly Joy is not happiness.

554.    Mukti (Release) is true joy or happiness; Coursing through births and deaths is unhappiness. All the joys and sorrows of Samsara are unreal.

555.    My name is “The embodied-Dehi"

556.    Mother, when will you go to Pandharpur ?

557.    Mother, now-a-days, how deceitful people are ! He had a rupee in his pocket and yet said no.

558.    Nothing will harm him who turns his attention towards Me, but Maya will lash or whip him who forgets Me.

559.    Nobody could come here of his own accord, nobody could stay here long
if he so wished.

560.    Now take care, you should not purge anymore, The vomiting must also

561.    Now your diarrhoea has stopped and you may attend to the work of the

562.    Night and day I gazed at My Guru with no thought of hungar and thirst.

563.    Nishta (Faith) and Saburi (Patience) are like twin sisters loving each other very intimately.

564.    No sadhanas, nor proficiency in the six Sastras are necessary,

565.    No body should take the labour of others in vain. The worker should be paid promptly and liberally.

566.    Not only Myself, but my tomb would be speaking, moving and communicating with those who would surrender themselves whole-heartedly to Me.

567.    Now you are well caught, officers will come and arrest you.

568.    Now you see and determine yourself whether the person you see here is the same you saw at Shirdi? It is for this reason that I sent you here.

569.    No quest can be successfully carried out on an empty stomach.

570.    No one who entered it once could return empty banded. Such was the

571.    No other gift from any man can be compared to His (God's).

572.    Nobody attends carefully to the meaning of what I say.

373.    Neither you have seen It with your eyes, nor tasted it with your tongue, then how could you say that it was good.

574.    Nana, I do not want this sort of collected purport of the whole stanza. Give Me each word, its grammatical force and meaning.

575.    Nana, is it -enough to make prostration merely ?

576.    Nana, why does Krishna refer Arjuna to Jnanis? or Tattwadarshis to do his prostration, interrogation and service? Was not Krishna a Tattwadarshi, in fact Jnani Himself ?

577.    Nana, it is not enough merely to prostrate before the Jnanis. We must make Sarwaswa Saranagati (complete surrender) to Sadguru.

578.    Nana, mere questioning is not enough. The question must not be made with any improper motive or attitude or to trap the Guru and catch at mistakes in the answer, or out of idle curiosity. It must be serious and with a view to achieve moksha or spiritual progress.

579.    Now I will do this, I will again bring that very child back in his wife's womb.

580.    Nana why are you getting agitated in vain ?

581.    Now you need not worry yourself anymore about the matter ?

582.    Nana, See, mother has cut off and carried away My feet.

583.    Nachne, go to Deopur, and worship the stones your forefathers

584.    Nana, I am not angry with you. You My children can angry with Me. If "Venkusa" were alive, I could be angry with Him.

585.    Never worry, not a leaf moves-but by His consent and will,

586.    Nana, if anyone begs of you anything, if that be in your hand or power and if you grant the request or get it granted, do so. Do not say 'No'.

587.    Nana, if anyone comes and begs for anything give him as much as you can, and if that person be not satisfied and asks for more, answer him suavely in the negative. Do not pour out your wroth or display all your official authority against that person.

588.    None dies, See with your inner eye. Then you realise that you are God, and not different from Him. Like wornout garment, the body is cast-away by God.

589.    Nana, you stay here, bury Me and then go.

590.    Nana, is thirsty. The heat of the summer is very great. Should we not give him at least a palm of water ?

591.    Nana, you were thirsty. I gave you water, Did you drink it ?

592.    None cares to take from Me what I am prepared to give abundantly. But they want from Me what I am unable to give.

593.    Nevermind, do send for the boy.

594.    Nevermind, Masudi Ayi will tesch you Sanskrit and gradually you will
learn, begin.

595.    No one should leave Shirdi to-day without leave from Me.

596.    Narayan, beat him well, when he comes here. He owes Me three of four thousand rupees and delays payment.

597.    None escapes Samsara.

598.    Now celebrate your son's marriage.

599.    No one comes to us without Runanubhanda (Some prenatal connection) So, when any dog, cat, pig, fly or person approaches, do not drive it or him, away with a" Hat-Hat, "Jit-Jit."

600.    One need not go far out to Dwaraka to see Krishna; to Dankapuri to see Dakurnath, to Pandhari to see Vithal. Will Vithal come here from some outside place? He is here. Only when the devotee is bursting with love and devotion, Vithal will manifest Himself here (Shirdi).

601.    Oh what is there in Akkalkot? why do you go there? The incumbent Maharajah of that place is here, Myself.

602.    Oh. My dear friend, do not be anxious,  I shall immediately show you the

603.    Oh, My dear friend, did you not understand all the procedure that I went through, sitting in this place, for enabling you to see the Brahma?

604.    Our senses have been created by God with a tendency to move outward and so Man always looks outside himself and not inside and he who wants Self-Relization and immortal life, must turn his gaze inwards and look to his inner Self.

605.    Oh, mother, why are you subjecting yourself to unnecessary tortures and meeting death?

606.    Oh, mother, My Guru never taught Me any Mantra, then how shall I blow any Mantra in your ears ?

607.    Once a Soudagar (Merchant) came here. Before him a mare passed her stool (nine balls of stool). The merchant intent on his quest, spread the end of his dhotar and gathered all the nine balls in it and thus, he got, concentration (peace) of mind.

608.    Oh, Abdul, some devilish creature is dashing against the side of My bed.

609.    Oh, Nana, he who has the power to digest union should .eat it and none

610.    Oh, Vile Bhaturdya (priest) do not climb up. Beware if you do so, Get away, come down. Dont; be afraid. Don't care a jot, the Merciful Fakir will save you, you go and sit quiet at home, don't go out, believe in Me and remain fearless and have no anxiety.

611.    Oh Anna, why are unnecessarily raising this hue and cry ? I do not understand what harm or impropriety is there when the mother is kissed?

612.    Oh Shama4this book (Vishnu-Sahasranama) is very valuable and efficacious, so I present it to you, you read it.

613.    Once I suffered intensely and My heart began to palpitate and My life was in danger. At that critical time, 1 hugged this book (Vishnu Sahasranama) to My heart and then, Shama, what a relief it gave Me.

614.    Oh Ramadasi, what is the matter with you? Why are you so turbulent ? Is not Shama our boy ? why do you scold him unnecessarily. How is it that you are so quarrelsome?

615.    Oh Megha, do at least this favour, head is the most important organ of the body, so pour the water over that only, it is equivalent to the full or whole bath.

616.    Oh, Tatya went ahead of us, he won't be reborn.

617.    Offers of bread and food should be regarded as auspicious signs of

618.    Oh, playful Rama, come, come and bring with you sacks of Udhi.

619.    Our Karma is the cause of happiness and sorrow therefore put up with whatever comes to you.

620.    Oh, welcome Sir,.

621.    Oh Shama, during the 72 generations that you are with Me. I never pinched you till now and now you recent My touching you.

622.    Oh Shama, Tatya, you think that I have been deceived in this bargain.

623.    One morning after taking My breakfast I strolled along till I came to a small

624.    Oh, Veerabhadrappa, has not your enemy Basappa yet repented though he has born as a frog, and you too, though born as a serpent, still maintain bitter enmity against him ? Fie upon you, be ashamed, give up your hatred now and rest in peace.

625.    Oh, why do you prostrate yourself now and then?

626.    Oh, Laxmi, I am very hungry.

627.    O, God, Enough. Stop the rain ! My children have to go back home. Let them go back without difficulty (Rain Stopped).

628.    O, Kaanda (i. e.,) onion you eat. Well, here you have onion. Eat it.

629.    Our (your) end will get so bitter or wretched. Once or twice, I will warn. The end will be hard indeed if one does not heed the advice given. Even the child in the womb, we will cut to pieces and through away if it falls athwart.

630.    One's sin (papa) does not cease till he falls at the feet of Sadhus.

631.    One must perform one's vow. Else he has to bear the punishment in the

632.    One must rest content with one's lot.

633.    On this side of   my body there   is excruciating pain.   It will be alright in two or four days.

634.    Poverty is better than kingship, far better than Lordship. The Lord is always brother (befriender) of the poor.

635.    Purification of mind is absolutely necessary, with­out it all our spiritual endeavors are nothing but useless show and pomp.

636.    Practice meditation thrice a day on the Gadd.

637.    Place or keep me in the wada.

638.    Protect my body for three days.

639.    People mostly think ill and talk ill of others. But I do not retaliate, I do not care to listen such talks.

640.    People became more and more ascetical, they are disposed to look more at the evil side of things.

641.    People are not good and devoted and are unsettled in mind.

642.    People have gone bad and give trouble. They are pestering me for money. Morever, they became shameless. Now I am disgusted.

643.    People must put full faith in the Lord's providence. They should not worry about food and clothing. They should not waste time on these.

644.    Prepare pitla, sauce of onions. Give me a part and eat the rest of it.

645.    Plants bend when they have fruits.

646.    Purandhare. Stay two days at Nasik and then leave.

647.    People rush and give me no rest.

648.    Please go there (Masjid) quickly and cover me with Bhakkal flowers.

649.    Rama (the God of Hindus) and Rahim (the God of Mohammedans were one and the same, there was not the slightest difference between them; then why should their devotees fall out and quarrel among themselves. You ignorant folk, children, join hands and bring both the communities together, act sanely and thus you will gain your object of national unity. It is not good to dispute and argue. So don't argue, don't emulate others. Always consider your welfare and interest. The Lord will protect you.

650.    Rare is the person who comes here to me and asks for Brahma Gnana.

651.    Roll up your bundle of Brahma, (i.e.) Currency notes.

652.    Remember me always, believe in me heart and soul and then you will be most benefited.

653.    Read this (Gita Rahasya by Lokamanya Tilak) completely and you will be

654.    Return this to its owner with the prasad of udi, tell him that T want nothing from him, ask him to live in peace and contentment.

655.    Relaying on your own cleverness, you missed your way, a guide is always necessary to show us the right way in small or great matters.

656.    Read Adhyatma (spiritualism).

657.    Remain here not a moment.

658.    Rao Bahadur M. V. Pradhan. You can bring in Ganapathy for worship.

659.    Rouge (Kusha Bhav) why do you eat the vomit?

660.    Rouge (A Revenue commissioner and a host of other officials were on the way to see Baba). What is there to see in me? I am only a Fakir with normal limbs and organs.

661.    Restrain yourself from forbidden food and drinks.

662.    Restrain lust. Wholly in respect of others wives and partly in respect of your own wife.

663.    Strive not much for food and clothes. If you want anything, beg of the Lord, leave worldly honour, try to get Lord's grace and blessings and be honoured in His Court.

664.    See, how I have to suffer for my devotees, their difficulties are Mine.

665.    Stay, cast off your anxiety, your sufferings have come to an end. However oppressed one may be, as soon as he steps in the Masjid, he is on the path way to happiness.

666.    Saburi will ferry you across the sea of this mundane existence.

667.    Saburi is manliness in man, it removes all sins and afflictions, gets rid of calamaties in various ways and caste aside all fear and ultimately gives you success.

668.    Saburi is the mine of   virtues, consort of good thoughts.

669.    Shri Hari (God) will be certainly pleased if you give water to the thirsty, bread to the hungry, clothes to the naked and your verandah to strangers for sitting and resting.

670.    See, Sankar is come, protect (i.e. worship) Him now.

671.    Seeing my cleverness, the employer loved me, praised me and Honoured me with a full dress, a turban for the head and a shela for the body etc.

672.    Still you disbelieve me.

673.    See, our Bahu is alright now and singing.

674.    Sometimes he dropped the burdens and other times carried them again. His mind knews no steadiness.

675.    Seeing his state, a took pity on him and said "Now keep your faith on any one place (point) you like" why roam like this? Stick quietly to one place.1

676.    Shama, this is rolling, see what it says.

677.    She will have an issue in 12 months.

678     See to keep my words, I would sacrifice my life.

679.    She told her vision to her husband. He was afraid that it would involve him in some expenses and therefore laughed it out saying that it was a mere dream, a thing not to be relied and acted upon, or else why did not God appear to him and tell him ? was he far off from her? This looks like a bad dream having for its object the crea­tion of ill feeling between husband and wife.

680.    She had to remain quiet.

681.    Some days after, God again appeared in her dream and said "Do not bother yourself about your husband and the collections with him. Don't press him to spend any amount for the temple. What I want is feeling and devotion. So give, if you like, anything of your own.

682.    She consulted her husband about this vision and decided to give God her ornaments given by her father.

683.    She was not able to redeem it for long.

684.    So this cunning miser cheated all, his wife, Dubaki and even God:

685.    Sometime later on strange things happend.

686.    She was growing fast and her father was seeking a good husband for her.

687.    Sow morgosa and afterwards reep margosa. Cut off that tree.

688.    Seva is not rendering service, retaining still the feeling that one is free to offer or refuse service. One must feel that he is not the Master of his body, that the body is Guru's and exists merely to render service to Him.

689.    Stay (Santharam and a goldsmith boy who were addicted to drink) here for six days (From that time love of drink left them and they continued free from that vice even after they left Shirdi).

690.    Satsanga (i.e.) moving with good. Dussanga (i.e.) moving with evil minded
people is evil and must be avoided.

691.    Shama, in bringing this thief, to me, what a load of responsibility you are placing on My shoulders.

692.    See, Re. 1/- is in your pocket. You must give Re. I/- to a "Fakir".           

633.    Some sense is required to ask questions. What a silly question you ask ? I look on all with equal eye.

694.    Some cover with laced shawls. Others with barks. Both serve only one purpose, covering the body.

695.    Samsara is of various sorts. It is like the surface of the body.

696.    See the difference between the rich man's dog rolling on sofa and the poor man's dog running about in search of crumbs. That is due to Deha Prarabdha.

697.    Shama, take this man and tell something.

698.    Stop, let the creature remain. I will kill it my­self but not at the Mosque (Baba carried it a few yards and it fell dead).

699.    Save the child's life (By giving udi).

700.    Send up Sankaranthi Halwa now.

701.    Shama, go out, beyond the wall there is an old man sitting and he has some sugar candy with him. Beg of him some candy for me and bring him.

702.    Sparrows (Devotees) now nesting (1912) on the Nimbar of the Mosque once nesting there and eaten away by a snake. But they were again born as sparrows and nested in the same place.

703.    Those who are attached to me heart and soul, will naturally feel happiness when they hear My stories.

704.    The pride and the egoism of my devotees will vanish, the mind of the hearers will be set at rest and if it has whole hearted and complete faith, it will be one with Supreme consciousness.

705.    The simple remembrance of My name "Sai-Sai" will do away with sins of speech and hearing

706.    There will never be any dearth or scarcity re­garding food and clothes in my devotees homes.

707.    Though I have become a Fakir ? have no house or wife, and though leaving off all cares, I have stayed at one piece, the inevitable Maya teases me very often. Though I forget Myself, I cannot forget Her. She always envelops me. This Maya (illusive power) of the Lord (Shri Hari) teases even God Brahma and others; then what to speak of a poor Fakir like me ? Those who take refuge in the Lord will be freed Her clutches with his grace.

708.    Those who are fortunate and whose demerits have vanished take to My

709.    The Fakir here is very kind and he will cure the disease and protect all with love and kindness.

710.    The lizard is overjoyed as her sister is coming from Aurangabad to see

711.    There is no dearth of persons asking for worldly things, but as persons interested in spiritual matters are very rare. I think it a lucky and auspicious moment when persons like you come and press me for Brahma Gnana.

712.    There are two sorts of things viz. the Good and the pleasant. Both these approaches man for acceptance. He has to think and choose one of them. The wise man prefers the good to the pleasant but the unwise, through greed and attachment chooses the pleasant and thereby cannot gain Brahma Gnana or self-realisation.

713.    The path of Brahma Gnana or self realisation is as hard as to tread on the edge of a razor.

714.    The body is the chariot and the Self is its Master, intellect is the Charioteer and the mind is the reins, the sense are the horses and sense objects their paths. He who has no understanding and whose mind is unrestrained, his senses unmanageable like the vicious horse of the charioteer, does not reach his destination (get realisation) but goes through the round of births and deaths; but he who has understanding and whose mind is restrained, his senses being under control like the good horse of a charioteer reaches that place, (i.e.) the state of self-realisation.

715.    The man who has understanding as his chario­teer (guide) and is able to rein his mind, reaches the end of the journey, which is the supreme abode of the all-pervading Vishnu (Lord).

716.    The idea that "I am the Body" is a great delusion and attachment to this idea is the cause of bondage. Leave off this idea and the attachment therefore, if you want to get the goal of "Self-Realisation"

717     The knowledge of the Self is subtle and mystic, that no one could by his own individual effort ever hope to attain it., So, the help of another person-Teacher, who was Himself got Self realisation is absolutely necessary.

718.    The Self cannot be obtained by the study of vedas nor by intellect, nor by much learning and he to whom the Self chooses, by him it is gained and to him the self reveals its nature.

719.    The illusion of attachment, or the love for money is a deep eddy (whirlpool) of pain, full of crocodiles in the form, of conceit and jealousy and he who is desire-less can alone cross this whirlpool.

720.    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.

721.    Take pity on me and hear me through, I tell you my own story, which if you listen carefully will do you good.

722.    To get the knowledge (realisation) of the Self, Dhyana (Meditation) is

723.    The mother tortoise is on one bank of the river and her young ones are on the other side. She gives neither milk nor warmth to them. Her mere glance gives them nutrition. The young ones do nothing but remember (meditate) upon their mother. The tortoise glance is, to the young ones, a downpour of nectar, the only source of sustenance and happiness. Similar is the relation between the Guru and the disciples.

724.    The sense of differentiation, as I and thou, is the barrier that keeps away the disciple from his master and unless that is destroyed the state of union or at-one ment is not possible.

725.    The path of this place is not so easy as the tea­chings of the Kanarese saint Appa or even as the buffalo-ride in the Nhane Ghat.

726.    There are nine types of Bhakti (viz) (1) Shrava-nam (Hearing) (2) Kirtan (Praying); (3) Smarana (Remembering); (4) Padasevan (Resorting to the feet); (5) Archana (Worship); (6. Namaskara (Bowing); (7) Dasya (service); (8) Sakyatva (friendship); (9) Atmanivedan (Surrender) (of the Self). If anyone of these is faithfully followed, Lord Hari will be pleased and manifest Himself in the home of the devotee.

727.    The world is all depended on Him, and no one is independent. So we
should pity and love creatures, leave off adventurous fights and killings and be patient.

PREFLEX (.By the Author)

Now, we have read this book thoroughly and found how the "Leelas" of Shri Sai Baba were ! and also where Rea­lity exists Further, a question may arise in our minds as to know the previous history of Shri Sai Baba. In this as­pect, we are all unfortunate, for none knew His birth, His birth place and parents etc. He first appeared before the villagers of Shirdi in 1854 when He was a boy of sixteen under a Neem tree (now called Baba's Gurusthan). He then disappeared and after three years, He again reappeared with Chand Patil s marriage party and thereon lived at Shirdi till He left His mortal Coil on 15-10-1918 in His own sayings in items 79 and 80 it will be clearly known to us that He was not born to a human being on earth No doubt He is God incarnate came in human body to lead us all in the righteous path to attain the goal of our life.

Thus, Shri Sai Baba lived at Shirdi in mortal body for more than 60 years benefiting His devotees as was read already. Even though, Baba took His Maha Sama-dhi on 15-10-1918, He is still playing His 'Leelas" in His own way to satisfy the needs of His devotees as was assured by Himself in items 59, 566 and 966 of this book. Tho­ugh He has no body now, He lives there and every where and effecting the welfare of His devotees even now as He was doing before when He was embodied. Saints like Sai Baba never die, though they look like men, they are in Reality God Themselves. Was He living because He had the body and was He died because He left it ? No, Shri Sai baba is ever alive for He transcends both life and death. He who loved Him once whole heartedly gets response from Him at any time at any place. Ha is always by our side and will take any form and appear before the devout bhakta and satisfy him

Shri Sai Baba was very fond of remembering God's name,' and fond of oil lights being burnt throughout the day and night and He was very much fond of Annadana to the poor. Even to-day, we may see the Handi used by Shri Sai Baba placed in the show room of Baba's Samadhi Mandir at Shirdi in which Baba Himself prepared food without anybody's help and distributed to all the poor and helpless people to their heart's content. Hence, the devotees should also follow the principles of Shri Sai Baba by surrendering completely to Him and thereby the Chief objects of their life (viz) Dharma (Righteousness), Artha (wealth) Kama (Desire) and Moksha (Deliverance) are easily attained. Apart from these, the devotees may also utilise this book to solve their problems in distress by thinking a number of an item of Baba's sayings in this book and take it as His direction to their problems.

The author kindly requests the readers to have their whole hearted Co-operation to this work and begs for­giveness from those who find any sort of shortcomings or error when reading or otherwise, The author has to interpolate that the credit of writing this book is due to him, but due to the integration of Shri Sivanesan Swamy, a staunch Sai devotee Sevak of 'Shri Sai Baba's Chawadi, Shirdi since 1953 who has induced, inspired and insisted him to write and publish this book and to Sant Janardhanswamy of Ellora who has kindly consen­ted and offered His foreword to this book and also to the Printers Sri laxmi Ganapathy Binding Works, Kovvur, West Godavari District (Andhra Pradesh) who have sincerely, promptly and honestly Co-opera­ted with the author in printing this book. At length, we may finish the reading of this book now, with an aim to read again and again by surrendering ourselves completely to the LOTUS FEET of the Sadguru Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi with the following prayer and gain His blessings.

"Let Sai cult and Sai Leelas spread every where;

Let differences disappear;

Let us see the Unity in the diversity;

Let us see Him in everything and everywhere;

Let Him live in us and guide us;

Let us develop ourselves so".
