Guruvaar Prarthna

Guruvaar Prarthna 

Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy day of Guruvaar. Baba why our life is perpetual struggle, perpetual dying worries until end. Baba please bless us to be cheerful always, rejoicing our life with radiant health and enjoying Your grace of supreme love. On this sacred day we start our prayers after reading the following ovi verses from Your Satcharita. 

It is not good to argue; do not try to compete with each other. Always think of one's own (permanent) good and God will protect you.
Practising yoga, performing rituals, doing penance, acquiring knowledge, these are all the means for attainment of God. One who does all this without the grace of God, worthless is his birth.
If anyone harms you in any way, you should not retaliate. If possible try to oblige others ". This is the sum total of his teaching.
For the sake of one's own good and for the sake of the ultimate good in life, this is an all embracing creed. It's a straight forward path for all, including the high, the low, the women and the sudras.
Just as the grandeur of the kingdom of dreams turns into nothingness as soon as the person awakens; similarly, this world is just an illusion. This is his conviction.
His regular behaviour or disposition is based on the conviction of the illusory nature of pleasure and pain regarding the body. According to him these were wanderings of the mind, as in a dream. Therefore, he has warded off the illusion and reached the state of emancipation.
When he sees the worldly attachment of his disciples, his heart melts with pity; and he worries day and night how to remove those bonds.
His whole nature is one with Brahman. He is the embodiment of permanent bliss; his mind is without any doubts. He is the incarnation of resignation (denial of pleasures).

I bow down to Sree Ganesh
I bow down to Sree Saraswati
I bow down to the Guru
I bow down to the Family Deity
I bow down to Sree Sita-Ramachandra
I bow down to Sree Sadguru Sainath.

-(from Shri Sai Samartha Satchrita, Chapter 10, Ovi 52 - 59)
