Dear sai,

Dear sai,

I thank You for this day.
I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning.
I'm blessed because You are a forgiving and understanding God.
You have done so much for me and You keep on blessing me.
Forgive me this day for I have sinned.
I ask now for Your forgiveness.
Keep me safe from all danger and harm.
Let me start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude.

Let me make the best of each and every day
and give my best in all that is put before me.
Clear my mind that I can hear from You.
Broaden my mind that I can accept all things.
Let me not whine and whimper over things I have no control over.
Let me continue to see sin through God's eyes
and acknowledge it as evil.
And when I sin, let me repent, and confess my wrong doing,
and receive the forgiveness of God.
And when this world closes in on me,
let me remember you
to slip away and find a quiet place to pray.
It's the best response when I'm pushed beyond my limits.
I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart.
Continue to use me to do your Will.
Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others.
Keep me strong that I may help the weak.
Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others.
I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way.
I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood.
I pray for those who refuse to share a word from You.
I pray for those that will read this and not use this in their lives.
I pray for those that don't believe. But I believe.
I believe that God changes people and God changes things.
I pray for all my sisters and brothers.
Om Sai Ram

2nd Day of Shri Saibaba Punyatithi Festival 2013


Saturday, October 5, 2013


Shri Chidambar Rao Keshav Gadgil was acting as Personal Assistant to the Collector of Ahmednagar Dis trict and then as Mamlatdar, Sinner. During these peri ods he used to visit Shirdi often and often to have Baba's darshan. He was transferred to a distant place with an order to join in the new post forthwith. From Sinner he has to go to his new place (via) Kopergaon railway station. He thought and felt very much for his inability for not attending Shirdi event hough he was passing through Kopergaon. No sooner he thought likewise a packet containing Udi was thrown to him from the window of the train. He has taken that pac ket and found that it contained Baba's Udi. Sometime after this incident he came to Shirdi for Baba's dars han. Then Baba told him that even though he was not able to come to Shirdi, He has sent His Udi, After hearing this, Gadgil's heart filled with joy and he placed His Udi in a talisman and wore on him for ever. This clearly shows that Baba is ever ready to fulfil the hearty desire of His devotees.
Surrender Shri Sai Completely ! Stupendous Delectation and Deliverance be there!!
Krishnashastri Jageshwar Bhishma was a resident of a village called Bori in the district of Nagpur. He lived on the income from his farms. After his second wife died he became restless. His relations and friends advised him to remarry but he declined. In the month of Shravan in 1908, on the night of Purnima he had a dream. He saw a
person of dark complexion with tripundra mark on his forehead, sandal-wood paste mixed with saffron applied to his body and puja offered at his feet. He gave Bhishma a newspaper. Bhishma enquired of him as to who he was. He did not reply but pointed to the the newspaper on which “Sat-Chit-Anand” was printed in bold letters. He directed Bhishma to read. Bhishma looked at the newspaper wherein he saw the words “Mantra va shikava” which means “ chant mantra and learn”. Bhishma was intrigued and wanted to question the dark person, but both the person and the newspaper had vanished. Bhishma was mystified, but in the meantime he heard a knock at the door and he emerged out of his dream. He lost no time in recording this dream. Thereafter he thought long about his dream but was unable to unravel the mystery. After a few days a sadhu, a devotee of Ganesh, visited Bori. Bhishma narrated his dream to the sadhu who told him that “Sat-chit-anand Swami” was his guru, and gave him the mantra “va shikava”.
After sometime Bhishma happened to visit Amraoti where Dadasaheb Khaparde asked him whether he would like to accompany him to Shirdi. He agreed and in the company of Khaparde arrived in Shirdi. There is a mention of Bhishma in Khaparde’s Diary pertaining to his second and long stay at Shirdi beginning from 6th December, 1911. As soon as Bhishma went to the Musjid for Sai Baba’s darshan, Sai Baba with folded hands exclaimed “Jaya Sat-chit-anand”. Bhishma was perplexed. He wondered whether the sadhu of his dream was Sai Baba. However, the sadhu of his dream was a Vaishnavite while Sai Baba appeared to be a Muslim! Yet, why Sai Baba uttered Sat-chit-anand? All Brahmin devotees of Sai Baba took tirtha but Bhishma did not. Sai Baba used to smoke the chillim and often invited others to have a puff but excluded Bhishma in the beginning. Once while Sai Baba was narrating a story, a devotee got the chillim ready and gave it to Sai Baba. Sai Baba held it out to Bhishma and directed him to smoke after merely touching the chillim to his mouth. Bhishma had a puff and returned it to Sai Baba. Sai Baba accepted it and remarked, “I roam everywhere, my friend – Bombay, Pune, Satara, Nagpur; all those towns are filled with the presence of Rama”. Then he suddenly said to Bhishma, “You eat laddus alone by yourself without offering anything to me. At least now give me five laddus”. It is well known that Sai Baba asked for dakshina from every devotee and spent the amount collected for charitable purposes.
Sai Baba’s remark had a strange effect on Bhishma. The distinction between the Vaishnav sadhu of his dream and Sai Baba disappeared. He knowingly asked the sevak for Sai Baba’s tirtha and placed his head on Sai Baba’s feet. Sai Baba put his palm on Bhishma’s head for two full mintues. Bhishma went into ecstacy. How could he describe the state of his mind except by saying like Devnath in his famous composition “Gurukrupayka uhnjuna paya mera main janu”. “The Guru’s Grace I have received I know it for myself”.
Bhishma returned to his lodging, brooding on how he could prepare five laddus in a place where he himself was a guest. Even otherwise he would have had to take the assistance of another person for the purpose and Sai Baba would have surely known about it. Moreover, why did Sai Baba ask him for only five laddus and not laddus generally? He spent a day thinking about the deeper meaning thereof and fell asleep with this thought uppermost in his mind. Suddenly he woke up and was inspired to compose a stanza. In the morning while he busied himself with the second stanza, Hari Sitaram Dikshit, on his way to the Musjid, saw the stanza. After his bath, Bhishma went to the musjid. Sai Baba reminded him about the laddus. Bhishma kept quiet but Dikshit replied that laddus were being prepared. On hearing this Sai Baba fell into a silence. Next day, Bhishma completed five stanzas, and however hard he tried, he could not compose any more. So he placed the composition of five stanzas into Sai Baba’s hands. Sai Baba asked him to recite them. While he was reciting, Sai Baba again blessed him by putting his palm on his head and Bhishma felt exalted. Thereafter Bhishma would compose a verse and show it to Sai Baba who would order him to render it. Thus the booklet “Shri Sainath Sagunopasna” wrote itself and was offered at Sai Baba’s feet. Dadasaheb Khaparde has the booklet published at his expense till 1922. Later on in 1923, after Shri Sai Baba Sansthan was founded, with Bhishma’s consent a revised edition was planned and published by the Sansthan with incorporation of more compositions therein

దశమి దాటిన ఏకాదశి తొలి ఘడియలలో మద్యాహ్నం 2.30ని.లకి విశ్వచైతన్యంలో కలిసి పోయినా, విజయ దశమినాడు సమర్ద సద్గురు సాయినాధుని పుణ్య తిధిగా గత 95 సంవత్సరాలుగా జరుపుకుంటూ వస్త్తున్నము మనమందరమూ! అయితే ఈ సంవత్సరం విజయదశమి అక్టోబరు 13 వ తేదీన కేలండరు ప్రకారం, జరుపుకుంటున్నాము. కానీ పండుగలూ, పుణ్యతిధులూ సూర్యోదయ సమయాన తిధి ఘడియలు వున్న రోజునే జరుపుకోవాలని పెద్దల మాట. 13.10.13 ఆదివారం నాడు దశమి తిధి సూర్యోదయ సమయానికి కాక మద్యాహ్నం 1.20 కి వచ్చినందువలన, దశమి తిధి 14.10.2013 న వుదయం 11.45 వరకు వున్నందువలన మనం సద్గురు సాయి మహరాజు 95 వ పుణ్యతిధి సోమవారమ్ జరుపుకుందాం! సద్గురు సాయినాధ మహరాజ్ కి జై!
Punya Tithi of Sadguru Sainath Maharaj usually observed on Vijaya Dasami day, though Maharaj left HIS human form just at the arrival of Ekadashi moments. As such though Vijaya Dasami this year celebrated by many on 13th October 2013, we should observe Maharaj's Punya Tithi on 14th October 2013, Monday, as Dasami ends at 11.45 AM on Monday. It is further said that any festivity could be observed only when the Tithi remains at Sun Rise. Let us therefore observe the Punya Tithi of Maharaj on the 14th October 2013, Monday.
