Shirdi Saibaba is not helping me ?
Expression of few Shirdi sai baba
devotees who love sai with heart and soul
In the last few years i had tried by best to guide and help few
good hearted shirdi saibaba devotees in worst pain. I have no more
than healing words for them to make them feel the presence of saibaba.
I am also a ordinary sai devotee as they are but i have to answer
one important feeling which is evident in most shirdi saibaba devotees
who are suffering in life. They feel "i am doing all i can
to show my devotion to saibaba with shradha and saburi and waited
months and years.My friends and relatives who pray saibaba are immensely
blessed with good life but why i am suffering . It seems saibaba
is not helping me."
Well, the answer is we people who pray saibaba with heart and
soul and feel that we cannot do anything without saibaba has been
hooked by Sai himself to be so affectionate and devoted but still
sai doesn't seem to help us because
"When we are so much devoted to sai itself it answers
how much we are in need of sai than others meaning probably
other devotees who are instantly benefited by our shirdi saibaba
would have done more good deeds in their past births or by their
ancestors and we people who are facing pains and worshiping sai
baba a lot might to suffer and endure , gain wisdom and only then
sai is going to help us. Yes it takes time and thats part of Saibaba's
beautiful path towards light. The journey always takes time but
remember Shirdi saibaba himself is walking with you holding your
palm and guiding you in every twists and turns of your life.
StarSai provides few ways, pooja etc so that it helps you divert
your mind in Saibaba's path and have patience untill "Saileela"
happens in your life. Its all in your mind friends. Saibaba is a
diamond living in your own mind. Clean the dirt of desires,ego,
frustration,disappointments ,lust and anger..then you will realize
" Shirdi Sai baba himself will
reside in your heart and make you shine in life with peace.Now close
your eyes and thank shirdi saibaba for he has been with you invisibly
even when you think he has not helped you"
Sai devotees are in pain due to various
pains in life .so i have tried to make sites based on problems faced
by devotees and help them understand our sweet shirdi sai. Please
forgive me if you find mistakes in my articles.What ever i write
comes from the experiences sai gave me due to my desires in career
and personal life.As sai says "i will give my devotees what
ever they ask for untill they ask for what i have in store for them".
When it comes to my life sai gave me desires and assurances but
while trusting sai whole heartedly that he will surely fulfill what
he assured me, my pains increased due to the natural human tendency
What really sai gave me ? He gave me golden
opportunity to learn his ways.He gave me good sai friends who shared
their pains and experiences . Thats why i am able to write few articles
and make websites to help other shirdi sai devotees in pain.I
certainly believe that words has power to heal. So i humbly
present the branch websites of starsai.com to all the affectionate
children of shirdi saibaba.
Little things that makes my sai happy :
I am a ordinary person who loves sai and wish to call myself as
servant of saibaba. Though i also have my own desires, i spend my
free time doing what i like the most ...."Little things that
makes my sai happy". People write me personally about their
problems and i try to guide them spiritually in sais ways. Apart
from that i believe words have powers to heal , so i consider few
of my sai friends as a part of starsai family and care for them.
The greatest dharma is to make sure we never hurt anyone and always
try to heal others pains. When someone writes me or calls me , i
try be a good friend and make them feel that theres someone. Not
all problems in life are solvable. So as a humble servant of sai,
all i can do is to make you gain patience untill sai's chosen time
has come in your life to do his leela... These are the days of "Instant
coffee" to "Instant everything" ... but if you really
love sai, learn to be calm . Everytime you close your eyes , imagine
that you are below sais holy feet .Total surrender is all it takes
for a sai leela to happen in your life...
Baba says , "If you spread your palms with devotion before
Me, I am immediately with you, day and night. Though, I am here
bodily, still I know what you do; beyond the saven seas. Go wherever
you will, over the wide world, I am with you. My abode is in your
heart and I am within you. Always worship Me, Who is seated in your
heart, as well as, in the hearts of all beings, Blessed and fortunate,
indeed, is he who knows Me thus."
Power of baba's Udi from sai satcharita :
Story of Scorpian sting :
Narayan Motiram jani of Nasik was a devotee of Sai baba.He was
serving under another devotee of saibaba, by name Ramchandra vaman
modak.Once he went to shirdi with his mother and saw baba.Then sai
baba himself told her that her son should start independent business.Some
days after this babas words came true.Narayan jani left service
and started a boarding house - " Anandasharam" , which
Once a friend of this Narayanrao was stung by a scorpion and the
pain caused by it was severe and unbearable.Udi - holy ash is most
efficacious in such cases, it is to be applied on the point of pain
and so Narayanrao searched for it but there was no udi with him.Then
he stood before saibabas picture and invoked babas aid, chanted
babas name and taking out a pinch of the ashes of the joss-stick
burning in front of Saibabas
Picture and thinking it as babas udi, applied it on the seat
of pain and the sting.As soon as he moved his fingers, the pain
vanished and both the persons were moved and felt delighted.
May sai bless with good career and business for all who reads this.
The scorpian sting also refers to the wounds in our heart in some
do not worry, Mentally apply udi in u r mind which is bearing all
Saibaba will surely heal you soon and bring good news.
Aum sri sai ram
The Goal of StarSai.com is to promote the message
God is not residing only in a temple , church or mosque to bless
you.The places of worship are there to purify your thoughts and
there by feel more close to God whos in every Atom and blesses you
every time your prayer is selfless. You start to realize God when
you learn the Art of Helping others . May shirdi saibaba fulfill
your wishes and inspire you to help each other whole heartedly -
The giver gives, but really he is
sowing the seed for later: the gift of a rich harvest. - Shirdi
You dont have to be Rich to help - Charity needs caurage and heart
The only way to reach God is by learning the "Art of giving
" not just through prayers and meditation.Even a saint who
meditates for years will have to give away the materialistic benefits
he derived through tapas to his devotees , only then they can go
to the next stage and finally get mukthi. The core factor that decides
how good your life has been can be calculated from the lives you
have changed through your Hardwork,Service and Resources.
Change your Habits - When ever you face hurdles
in your Studies,career ,Business or work and the very usual Financial
problem going to a Temple ,church or mosque or sitting for hours
and doing prayers CANT do much favour.No God can do magic if your
fate is to go through sufferings.God wants to make sure if the resources
he gives you can be of some use to the society.so just start in
Learn to give and then you will gain more :
First prove to god you are selfless through your actions and not
just the usual "If i become rich i will help others ".
By the time you become rich your lifestyle will take you in a different
path and you will forget your prayers.What i mean is charity comes
by practice.So "PRACTICE GIVING " with what ever little
resources you have.
Above is for those who belive in God like me.For those who dont
belive in God just go on with a "Law of Nature" which
is " A good thought bounces back as good blessings and a Good
action for others bounces back to you from someone else which can
make your life much better "
What can i do if i am myself not wealthy ?
You dont have to donate thousands or hundreds to any charity organisation.I
have personally experienced big changes in my life by doing few
good things with very very little money i have.What matters is building
your heart and body by practicing the act of giving.
My family itself struggling.How can i Give to others
The reason i want to spread the message of giving itself is not
for rich people but for people who are in middle class familes struggling
to comeup in their life.I am sure you can spend less than 100 Rupees
( 2 $ ) a month or just cook for 3 more extra people once every
month,Pack that food and give it to any handicaps or kids you find
in road side or streets.This is what i call as "practicing
Giving" .Its a matter of 10 rupees or 100 rupess or even less
than this but once you started to do this on a regular basis your
soul and body will be blessed and eventually result in good changes
in your family and for your children.
The same middle class people are sometimes spending thousands for
religious rituals and astrologers who fail to tell you the biggest
truth which is all your struggles will vanish once you give food
or Help your relatives or friends who are suffering and gain blessings.You
could help a child get good education or help someone get a Job
or start a business in small way which also can bring you great
Ok i started giving and i find no Changes so far
When you give food or Notes,books to poor children or help in any
orphanage or old age homes dont worry yourself that failures and
hurdles continues to hurt your life.Time is a big healer and your
good deeds will surely result in good changes in the lives of your
dear ones no matter how many months it takes.
Beware of how your money or resources are spent
- Dont think just because you plan to do good things every
one surrounding you will be deserving it.You have all the rights
to say "No " because sometimes people start to misuse
your charity.Just continue to do little things as much as you can
but also make sure your act of giving is limited within your financial
ability and only reaches the person who deserves your help.What
matters is your personal satisfaction in giving and not the quantity.
Universal Truth - Shirdi SaiBaba, Shiva,
Buddha and all the known saints and God has stressed in their own
way about Helping others . One of the reason is that when you "Give"
its a way of reducing your attachment with material desires which
is the cause of all worries and difficulties in life.When you give
some thing worthy to others God will send someone later who gives
you something more precious which is a universal truth.
Help in the name of shirdi saibaba :
I wrote the above article in december 2004 when i thought of remainding
people what they already know which is to help others in need. Now
its september 9th 2007 when i wish to make a request.So many are
giving food to hunger in the name of "Annadhan scheme "
.I am not against it .Its good but when you act individually , dont
always go to big temples or donate to a big organisation etc thinking
your charity stops there. Do you know how many many people are really
hungry and desperately in need of your help. When i travel to temples
in villages around tanjavur , kumbakonam ,shirdi and few villages
in maharastra i have seen how simple poor people. There are so many
whom we can meet while we travel who deserves our help. Just be
careful with stranges .Tthats my only request but sai will surely
protect you for the good heart you have to help others.
Shirdi saibabas blessings for your charity :
Before you contribute first pray baba whole heartedly if your donation
will be used properly. Dont do it for the sake of it or just because
someone adds your name in contributors list. Remember, baba has
a better list up there. He knows everything what ever u do. Trust
me, baba is really maintaining your accounts in his own bank "Bank
of blessings " .The more good you do to your friends, relatives
in need and strangers in need baba will keep on adding to your account.
Help friends,relatives and co-workers by blessings
of shirdi saibaba :
When it comes to helping friends and relatives make sure you give
what you can afford to loose.Dont give any thing for formality and
half mind.Help others if you really wish they must live by sais
grace. I have seen some people giving money and stuff to friends
, relatives and later complaining that , i gave him money but he
cheated. If its your karma to get cheated what can sai do.Sai can
only guide you if you are totally devoted to him. I mean you can
escape any problems in life if you always remember sai sai sai....so
when you help friends, do it if you think their situation is really
worse,make sure your relationship dont gets spoilt because of giving
and then expecting back and then ask babas permission . Finally
give and help your friends and co-workers when right situation arises.
Never regret incase you had donated wrongly or wasted your money.
Thats your karma or lets say baba made you go through that wrong
organisation of trust or people or what ever to give you experience.
once you have experience on who is doing charity the wrong way and
who is doing it the right way, you will be able to prepare yourself
for helping others in better way.
Remember shirdi saibaba when ever you help
Never think you are doing a help .You are actually paying back
your past births debt .who knows ? you are supposed to help someone.Its
human nature to get hurted if people whom we helped just makes use
of us in their hard times but forgets us in their good times. Its
ok.Bhagavat gita says "To work alone you have the competence
and not to claim the fruits thereof or Do your part and leave the
results to Me" .so leave the results to our sweet affectionate
Guru shirdi saibaba. Always chant "sairam " or any of
your good mantra when you help others.
The divine grace of Shirdi saibaba and Lord Murugan bless us to
have a peaceful life following the path of humanity and spread love
amoung people over the world. "Anbe shivam - God is love"
The giver gives, but really he is sowing
the seed for later:
the gift of a rich harvest. - Shirdi Sai Baba
