This is a holy Sani pradosham day auspicious to Lord Shiva and Parvathi. I wish to post this expression of devotion of a sai child who wrote me about how StarSai inspired her to do Lamps offering to Sainath in their house.
How big is your Shirdi Sai Baba photo in house ?
If you see , the Shirdi Sai baba photo is very simple small picture but look at the arrangements she made with the wooden stools to light these beautiful lamps..
There are Sai devotees who fill their house with numerous sai photos. I have seen some sai devotees desire to have BIG BIG sai photos in their house. Fine…its good ..even i love to have but lets realize the fact that having beautiful sai baba photos and statues are not enough..We have to take effort atleast once every month to do simple pooja…atleast offer a glass of water or milk to sai every morning , chant sai sai sai and have the water as prasad.
Lets light lamps with oil, Ghee :
I suppose these are candle lamps and wish to mention ,devotees who are abroad who come to india, try to purchase few brass lamps which is offordable than silver lamps. You can use them to light lamps regularly in your house. If you really can’t get lamps for time being its ok to light candles. I say this because Ghee lamps are very auspicious and theres a beauty in traditional indian lamps.
Ofcourse for offering many lamps you might have to relay on such candle lamps unless you live in india where you can look for earthern lamps made of mud which is used to light lamps lamps .
Now lets go to the mail i received along with Sri Shirdi sai baba photos with lamps offering
My love for the one and only ” SHIRDI SAI BABA”- GOD of ALL..
I have become a humble devotee of SAI just for the past 9 months only. I used to pray HIM before ;but not been HIS real disciple. SAI is the symbol of LOVE, CARE, TRUTH and ultimate LIFE itself! I never knew about the importance of lighting lamps before SAI. Your site really inspired my entire family and made us do it.SAI wanted me to do it and to make me aware of that HE made me enter your sacred SITE.
The pictures posted by you on the site was marvellous and so realistic and clearly expresses the level of depth in your devotion. SAI BABA called me to Shirdi only last oct 2009 where i placed my foot on the holy place of HIM. To my amaze, I was deeply and devotionally taken to HIM closer after that. To be frank, came across you site just a month n half back.
Was awestruck and melted on reading the articles of your site. I really thought of expressing my LOVE and BHAKTHI for SAI in the form of lighting 108 lamps. As you say, 100% total surrender to HIS feet is essential in order to gain HIS blessings. FAITH and PATIENCE are the 2 keys to enter SAI’s wonderful BHAKTHI. I truly believe in HIM. HE is always the sweetest GOD!!! In this short span of 9 months SAI bhakthi; I ve always learnt something new in my LIFE daily, SAI has made me see the reality of LIFE and GUIDED me throughout.
On seeing HIM my eyes promptly sheds tears of LOVE on HIM. Always chant Sai.. Sai.. Sai.. will make one reach the pinnacle of success in LIFE.. Never SAI lets down anyone. HE doesnt expect anythin except the total surrender to HIM. Once you shoulder all matters on HIM, definitely HE directs you and GIVES you the BEST.
Remember: “Whenever you are in deep sorrow or in extreme happiness jus say SAI, HE simply multiplies your happiness and destroys all sorrows in your LIFE”!!!
LOVE HIM always..
Jai Sai RAM…
