Sai, please help me know his worth
I realized that I have bothered everyone around me and disturbing them. I feel its better to be calm but naturally I can’t shut my mouth and keep quiet. Last night when I reached home my Father was not well which made me feel its better to be calm and not ruin others happiness and peace of mind.
Couple of days back, I saw this TV channel in Tamil called Sai Tv and wondered if there’s a necessity of a TV Channel for Sai? May be or may be not? People complain that I always think negatively in every issue but the truth is that I try to go from alternative thought to positive thought.
One reason is that Guru’s grace must be rarity. 15 years back, If you you are out in the road in Chennai, you will hardly see any Vehicles having Shirdi Saibaba photo or sticker. Today, within 5 to 10 minutes you will certainly atleast see the name Sai in some vehicle. Its good to see so many people in India being a Sai devotee but Sai must not become easily available.
If Saibaba is easily available, its hard to know his worth.
Today, Millions of Sai children easily go to Shirdi. Sai does say that only if he calls, his devotee can reach Shirdi. Which clearly means, Sai is affectionately calling many of his children to Shirdi. I just wonder if we all, including me actually once thought how much some devotees was tested by Saibaba to enter Dwarakamai?
Just because we are able to touch Dwarakamai in Shirdi, it doesn’t mean, Sai is happy with out behaviour. Sai is just adjusting our impurities because he looks at us as kids. We all are basically ruined and spoilt due to our desire.
Coming back to if its OK to have an exclusive channel for Saibaba, fine. Its all great. My Father was happily listening to few songs until he changed to a travel channel. I was happy as devotees can get connected to Saibaba when ever they are bored.
And there’s a self justification – If there’s a website like StarSai dedicated to Sai, why not a TV channel for Baba? They are doing good too. Appreciate it.
Now, there’s another question – Am I writing only about Sai?
I mostly touch my personal life . At times, I write about humanity, about ordinary Indians, about doing good etc.
So here’s my request
Do not stick to Sai alone.
Go behind everything that’s “Good” and that also is a way of showing love to Sai.
Did Saibaba say that only if you go to his temple or read Sai Satcharita alone your life will be good.
Never once – Never once Sai uttered that you must focus only on him.
Here’s how you can deal with this
Keep Sai as a center of everything else in your life.
Sai must be the Sun of your Universe.
But read, learn and enjoy everything good in this universe.
Just deep inside you think “Sai Sai Sai”.
When devotees write to me saying they don’t have a job, I don’t ask them to do pooja or worship Saibaba.
I ask them what’s their profile and make them feel more confident. Ask them to hunt for job with energy. Request them to learn something new. If they are just starting their career, plead them not to worry about salary and pick up any job for that matter.
Now you might understand why focussing on Sai alone can’t help in life.
Sai must be inside you. Everything else is a ripple caused by this Sai.
Keep working and live your life.
Keep Sai inside yourself- Secretly. Only then, You will know his worth.
Om Sai Ram
