Satcharita : - a beautiful collection of incidents which happened
during shirdi saibaba's life time.
Shri Govind Raghunath Dabholkar whom Sai Baba affectionately called
as Hamadpant was blessed with Baba's darshan in the year 1910 ,
he soon became a ardent devotee of shri sai baba and decided to
write Baba's leela , few good incidents as collection of stories.
Shama asked Saibaba to belss Hamadpant for writing the book. Baba
said "Let him surrender his ego and pride, I will myself write
the stories ,he is only a instrument. " Thus we shirdi saibaba
devotees were given the gift of learning from the beautiful miracles
and teachings of shirdi saibaba. This is not just a Book which one
reads to gain information. This Book has secrets beyound the words
you find there. If you assimilate each and every incident of shri
shirdi saibaba's life time, the way he worked hard for his devotees
welfare, the way saibaba suffered pains to his own body , you will
understand not only of Sai baba of shirdi be generally what a gift
it is to be a indian because this is a country where few good saints
have lived for welfare of others.
Follow the true Path shown by Shirdi Sai baba :
Sai satcharita can be bought in various shirdi saibaba temples
in india and abroad. Make sure its written by "Hamadpant"-
Govid Radhunath Dabholkarji. Now a days there are shirdi saibaba
books which has information about How baba was born , where he was
before his advent in shirdi etc. Please understand even if proof
is given for such information, many shirdi saibaba devotees prefer
to follow only saibaba's life given as per sai satcharita by hamadpant.
If saibaba wants to reveal all the information about his past he
would have easily done it but sai has always ignored it and just
to few he gave little information based on that now people are adding
imaginary stories .
What we have to learn from a saint like saibaba of shirdi is his
wisdom from the way he lived and worked on his devotees life and
lead them in the path of Light. Teachings of Saint is more important
that places and facts. So please stick to Sai sai sai in your own
mind. Shirdi Sai baba lives in your own heart. The more good deeds
you do like helping others in need as per your ability, the more
lamps you light, the more you keep yourself in good habits and away
from bad company , sai will surely show you his presence in your
A SadGuru will bless you with eternal divine Gift
- do not trust Mordern gurus who needs your money and brainwash
you with tricky methods - Be honest and pure - shirdi sai himself
will show you a way :
Please friends in this mordern days , do not trust false gurus,
dont go to yoga and meditation class and fall in feets of people
who only needs your money. I am not against it. Do any thing thats
good but always think 1000 times to accept anyone as Guru. Never
depent on anyone completedly because God and infact Shirdi saibaba
himself is going to guide you if you are devoted him with pure heart.
Now a days there are answer books, online answer books etc for shirdi
saibaba to help sai devotees but what matters is do not be upset
when you think baba gave you a hint or assurance but it dint happen.
Learn to surrender completely in the holy feets of shirdi sai baba.
Sai has pulled you to him not for silly benefits here and there
but give you the grestest blessings which is to make your soul birthless
by letting you payback for your past sins, giving you wisdom to
change few charecters you have in this birth and untimately shirdi
sai will make you a very nice person and also bless you with a gift
that will really give you all peace and happiness in life.
Trust me theres no one like saibaba of shirdi in present days.
Its not enough if one can say your future, act smart to build hospitals
and schools. Shirdi saibaba's grace and efforts cannot be defined.
Sai always liked like a poor fakir. He got dakshina only to teach
us non attachment towards materialistic things but even the dakshina
collected was given back to other poor devotees who come to see
him for darshan. Imagine is there one single saint or person who
calls them as "SadGuru"...The term sadguru itself means
'True Guru" ..The presence of this term itself must help you
think deeply and decide whom you must choose as Guru. I never ask
any one to follow shirdi saibaba immediately just because i love
shirdi sai. I just show the photo of shirdi saibaba where he stands
with torn clothes .
Sai devotees call sai satcharita also as sri sai satcharitra and
sai satcharitram. I have used sai satcharita mostly because in present
books its given as " sai satcharita"....
Read Sai satcharita regularly :
Please get this book or read it online provided by many websites
curtesy of shri saibaba sanstan. I know sai devotees who read this
small book again n again and again and get many kinds of blessings
for themselves , their family and friends. I know this article has
many grammer mistakes, my language is not good..what matters is
content. Take what i am trying to express. Help yourself by doing
little good deeds of humanity, even if a dog comes to you by wagging
tail, please give biscuts of milk if you can but never throw stones
n hurt it. Then imagine you must never ever hurt anyone. Baba is
living in your own mind and watching you always . When you are in
pain with desires unfulfilled , iknow how it is, i have spent years
with such sufferings , my family suffered because of me but then
sai baba has always helped me to understand "Venkat, what you
need .... Sai himself with you..." Yes Sai of shirdi is Sai
who has lived internally in me and helped me serve him whole heartedly.
Start reading sri sai satcharita everyday from this
Light lamps regularly to shirdi saibaba photo or statue in your
Give food to hungry, this does not mean donating money to temple
n leading your life. what ever u do try to max to get food on your
own, give it affectionately to others, give saree or dress to poor
women, give books to poor kids...
Always CHANT sai sai sai...sai sai sai...sai sai sai when ever
you travel and do odd works n feel like remembering sri saibaba.
when you are depressed try to read few articles in shirdisaibabadhuni.com
, try to do the pooja i have given called "starsai shradha
saburi pooja" and also light lots of lamps. take proper care
when you light lamps at home .please....Below is a photo of shirdi
saibaba which i show to people who ask me "Why you love saibaba
of shirdi soooooooooooooooooooooooo much" .
I show them below photo and ask - Look at him...Poor fakir....Standing
,weak, old, torn clothes, leading on a wall.......only 4 true servants
who knows "truth in life" are near him. There are millions
of devotees for shirdi saibaba but those who are close to sai are
not there just to gain money and great career etc etc....they are
with saibaba because they know sai has blessed them with eternal
gift. Apart from this "Can you show a saint today who is has
all powers as shirdi saibaba but also leads a life as simple as
sai"....there could be few but its hard to find one.The gurus
you see on Tv, on the net, with great organisations ,who claim that
they build this and that for welfare of devotees, who teaches yoga
and meditation.......Vow....think once again...Are they are "Getting"
and "expecting" something from YOU. Saibaba of shirdi
is such a saint who lived in india in late 18th century and very
soon Shirdi Saibaba will be a saint whom the world will think about
because Shirdi saibaba is a saint who has powers like a million
sun put togather but lived like a small candle in a hut and melted
himself for the welfare of his devotees whom he affectionately calls
Below is the original photo of shirdi sai baba ...Saibaba is leading
over the wall with his legs crossed and looking at you with love
