Shri Sai Kriti
Hansraj Vaani had asthma:it was very severe andtormented him day andnight. He was advised byNarsinga Baba Maharaj ofNasik to seek refuge atBaba's feet. Hence he andhis wife came to Shirdi andmade it their home.Baba cautioned Hansraj,and told him not to eat curd,or acidic and pungent fooditems. But Hansraj lovedcurds and felt that the mealswas incomplete without it. Infact he felt he could give uphis life rather than give upeating curd. He forced hiswife to prepare curd daily sohe could have it for lunch.They had lunch after thenoon aarti, and while theyattended it a cat wouldsneak in and eat the curd.This bothered Hansraj a lot,as he had to have the mealwithout it. So he devised aplan, he asked his wife tokeep the vessel in a slingand hang it from thereafter.Nonetheless, the catsomehow managed to eatit. One day he decided tocatch the cat in the act andgive it a good thrashing. Hewaited with a stick in hishand for the cat to committhe act. Indeed the cat cameinto the house andsomehow managed toclimb up and eat the curd.As soon as the cat hadfinished eating, shedescended and Hansrajgave her a good thrashing.In the evening Hansrajwent to the Dwaraka Mai,where Baba was sittingalong with his devotees.Baba looking at Hansrajsaid, There is an Uptiya(one who does the reverseof what he is asked to do)who wants to die by eatingsour and pungent things, butI will not allow him to do so.I went to his home in theform of a cat to eat the curdand he gave me a goodthrashing." Then Babaexposed his back and therewere red welts from thebeating.Many a time Babaappeared before hisbhaktas to assure andsatisfy them. But he did soin unique and differentroopas (forms)."Sometimes I am a dog.sometimg a pig, a cow, acat, a fly and an aquaticcreature. In various formsdo I move about in theuniverse. Know that I likeonly him who sees me in allliving beings. so give up thissense of differentiation, thisis the way to worship me"said Baba to Mrs Tarkhadwhen she fed a hungry dog,and then a mud splatteredpig.

My Experience about Sai Baba
For the protection of thevirtuous and for thedestruction of the evil, theAlmighty manifests Himselfin a form and a namechosen by Him. BhagawanSai Baba of Shirdi is one ofsuch manifestations of theDivine who has descendedon the earth to savehumanity from moral decay.The Divine Will wasevidenced right from the veryinception of the Avatar i.e. thesecrecy of His birth. Nobodycan Vouchsafe Baba’s casteor the place of his birthexcepting several vaguetheories put forward by someof his contemporaries. Hewas loved and worshippedby Hindus and Muslims alike.People coming from allareas and from all faithsflocked to Shirdi to prostrateat His holy feet for theirsalvation. He was a Hinduliving in Masjid. He was aMuslim for whom theMosque was “Dwarka Mai "He is a servant to hisdevotees having nolimitations of caste, creed orreligion. Everyone has a rightto demand anything hewants from Him. He is father,mother and sadguru to theentire humanity. Everyminute aspect of this Avatarwas so precisely mouldedwith meticulous care byBaba Himself, with a specificmission of establishingharmony among Muslimsand Hindus. He is anincarnation of the SupremePower reflected in differentfaiths. His teachingsrepresent the gist of differentfaiths. Any attempt todescribe this Deva and Hisglory can only be a part of itand not the whole. “If a manutters my name with love Ishall fulfill all wishes,increase his devotion and ifhe sings earnestly my lifeand my deeds, him I shall beset in front and back and allsides" (Shri Sai Satcharitra)The above assurance ofBaba is a matter of personalexperience for severalthousands of devotees, wholook to Him and who arelooked after by Him. In thisconnection I wanted tonarrate my own humbleexperience with theblessings of Sai Baba whichI think will appeal to all thosewho admire the supremacyof any faith by scientificreasoning or logic.It was in the year 1970 thatI happened to go to Bombayon some personal work. Asit happened to be my firstvisit I went for sight-seeingto several places in andaround Bombay Suddenly Ifelt that I should go to Shirdiand visit the Mahasamadhiof Sai Baba more out ofcuriosity rather thandevotion. But the visit was tobe put off because of mybrother-in-law’s arrival fromthe United States. I was verymuch disappointed andsilently prayed to Baba thatif He were to be a God. Heshould bless me with anopportunity to go to Shirdi. Inthe meanwhile a veryinteresting thing happened.We received a cable that mybrother-in-law’s scheduledarrival had to be postponedon account of his prolongedstay enroute. Thus theseeds of faith were sowedin my heart by anunexpectedaccomplishment of mydesire. Immediately I was insearch of a person whocould, help me with thedetails of the pilgrimage.When I was proceedingfrom Andheri to Dadar byelectric train I surprisinglycame across a devotee ofSai Baba who guided mewith minute details. Thus thevery first visit to the Shrineproved to be a preplannedsankalpa of Baba Himself todraw me towards Him. Aftertaking a bath I went for adarshan which made meextremely happy. For amoment there appearednothing but Sai Baba’s formin everything I saw in Shirdi.I prayed to Baba that Heshould help me with HisGrace and give me solaceand comfort throughout mylife. I happened to make astudy of several booksavailable at Shirdi whichmakes one to feel that He isnot merely a super-humanform but the omnipotent GodHimself. Since then my faithin Baba was steadilygrowing. One of my closefriends was blessed with adaughter. Unfortunately shehad an attack of paralysisand as a result of which shewas not in a position to moveher hands. My friend felt veryunhappy as the treatmentgiven by doctors did notproduce the desired results.He had lost all hopes ofrecovery and felt dejected. Igave him a little vibhuti whichI brought from Shirdi andasked him to apply it to theaffected hand with completefaith in Baba’s mercy.Though he was notpersonally a believer inSaibaba he consented to doit on my persistence. He toldme that he would worshipBaba as God if the Vibhutihelped the recovery of hischild in any way. With theapplication of vibhuti therewas a tremendousimprovement and very soonthe baby recoveredresponding very well to themedical treatment whichwas a big surprise even tothe Physician as he himselfwas not quite confident aboutthe outcome of his trial. Thegrateful father of the childhas become an ardentdevotee of Sai Baba. Suchwas the kindness of theSaint who responds to thecall of humanity if only thepersons look to Him.

,Hyderabad.Sai Baba the saint, God whoincarnated on this earthentirely and wholly for theupliftment of his devotees,living all His life in adilapidated masque. Hetaught people how to live asimple spiritual andcontented life to be happy inwhat God has ordained forus, to be contented with thebasic minimums of life toperform one’s karma with fulldedication, honesty,sincerity and amidst all thisalways chanting the Lord’sname with full faith in thepower of His name andgrace.He performed leelas as wecall them the deedsperformed by the incarnationSai in a bodily form. leelaswere basically his every dayinteractions with one and allbut were given the name“leelas” as behind each suchaction was always hidden adeep divine message of theLord. A message that wouldeither fulfill itself with thepassage of time on its ownor by Sai’s grace open itstrue self right there and then.Many such Leelas havebeen depicted in the mostsacred granth - The Sai SatCharita and each leela is adeep divine message of SaiBaba to humanity to upliftfrom the gutters ofselfishness to the epitome isselflessness. This sacredGranth is our Bible, GuruGranth sahib or in fact theBhagwat Gita itself. It notonly gives us to rise from thedarkness of Maya to the lightof spirituality but also takesus out of the small ditches& pits we keep falling intowhile traversing this path oflife, fully engulfed by Maya.Sai Sat Charita is the ‘Lightof the Lord’ which takes usfrom materialism tospirituality, form darkness tolight, from Maya to Mayapatiand from the wheel of Karmato the eternal take-offtowards spirituality andmoksha. For our ownenhancement for our ownutthan, we must read the SaiSat Charita every day.It is not important to doformal pooja but moreimportant is to cherish, love& call God from the depthsof your heart. Lord isominipresent. He is notbound by the four walls of atemple nor is he only presentin formal rituals, instead heis always inside us, with us,around us, it is just that wehave to realize this fact andremember them always withlove and a devoted heart andbe restassured you will beable to get His feel in yourown heart beat. Moreimportant is love rather thanformal pooja to which Godresponds. While doing allyour duties, if you rememberHim always, then that is abigger upasana rather thangoing to the temple for 10minutes and lighting a lampin two minutes and justforgetting the Lord the wholeday long.So with the NEW YEAR ,let us just try to peep withinour own self and analysehow much did we reallyremember or loved Saigenuinely. How much was amere show off or a selfishventure. You will get yourown answers but please behonest to your own self andsee where you stand andpromise your own self toenhance your presentposition further to go closerto Sai, to increase your lovetowards Him and not movingcloser to this falsematerialistic world and justfooling your own self bycalling mere formal poojabhakti and mere selfishventure as love towards thelord.
