Festival of Lights Diwali with Saibaba

Sairam friends

This is the little StarSai temple my father built for me to worship Saibaba as i wish in the entrance of our house. As its diwali 17 :10:2009, i desired to light many lamps to our shirdi saibaba and make Sai Happy.

I shall post more photos of StarSai temple later…heres a Gift from me to all Sai children who loves Saibaba and also lighting Lamps .

Come Celebrate Diwali with Shirdi Saibaba in StarSai temple

Shirdi Saibaba blessings by lighting lamps in starsai temple

Shirdi Saibaba blessings by lighting lamps in starsai temple

All the day i was in saibaba temple in our hometown and again i wanted to go back in evening. I felt that saibaba will be happy only if i light lamps in this little saibaba mandhir my father gifted me outside the varanda in our house. You can see in above photo behind the kalasam on top is money plant !

Adjacent to this temple is a Tulsi pot . Every morning i wash the temple with 2 buckets of water and then make saibaba sit inside, apply vibuti, kumkum and light one gajalakshmi lamp.

3 month back i got a dream in which Shirdi Saibaba asked me to light 12 lamps regularly. I felt atleast during the festival of lights – diwali i must light many lamps and worship saibaba. So fastly i arranged everything, lit lamps and took photos and then started as usual to saibaba temple in our place.

Look how beautifully shirdi saibaba’s face is glowing in the golden light of lamps offered to Sainath with love and devotion

Remembering the Chawdi procession of Saibaba :

We have read in sai satcharitra that every alternative day devotees will take Saibaba from his Masjid Dwarakamai to Chawdi and this will be held as a procession. Its said that Devotees used to play musical instruments ,offer flowers light lanterns etc and it will be a magic to see Saibaba slowly walking from dwarakamai to chawdi.

The below photo where we can see Saibaba’s face is in almost red color makes me remember the words in sai satcharitra that Devotees used to through Red color gulal powder over saibaba and during this time saibaba’s face glows with radience . Probably saibaba more beautiful than how he looks in the below photography.

Sairam friends,

It took hours for me to take the photos of Saibaba , Infact i wish to do chanting of shirdi saibaba after lighting lamps . Many times my sai friends asked me to take photo of our small StarSai mandhir so today i felt if i take photos many sai children can see the beauty of Saibaba and there by they will respond with more devotion.

So rather than chanting for a hour if i take photos then thousands of sai devotees will be inspired to light lamps and also chant any small mantra of Sai or simply chant Sai Sai Sai with love

My love for lighting lamps :

In the Shirdi Saibaba temple in our hometown only few devotees comes untill 2007 and they had a little tray to light lamps. From 2008 the crowd increased and now so many thousands come to the temple. Many of them lights lamps and candles. Every thursday saibaba has blessed me to stand near the big tray devotees light lamps for hours.

I love to light the lamps which is put of by wind and i will take off the lamp which is over so that other devotees has space to light lamps. I really enjoy doing this little work for saibaba and feel blessed when ever i get this opportunity.  Lighting lamps is so sacred friends. Please keep it as a habit.

Happy Diwali

Please light lamps every day in your house. Atleast 2 diya ( lamps ). Its very auspicious to light lamps regularly… It has a great power to make your family live in peace , good health and prosperity.

Let everyday be festival of Lights for Saibaba who lives in your house !

Om sainathaya namaha
