Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy day of Guruvaar. Baba, please make us perfect, for that please give us faith, without faith there is no knowledge, without knowledge there is no virtuous conduct, without virtues there is no deliverance, and without deliverance there is no perfection. When we are perfect, our prayers are meaningful and beneficial to all. Baba bless us to achieve that perfection. On this holy day we start our prayers by reading Your words given in Satcharita.
Then Baba said at that time: "Now wrap up your fake Brahman. Till your greed is not destroyed, you will never realize Brahman.
He, whose mind is attached to his family and possessions (sons, farm, animals etc.) how can he achieve Brahman till constant awareness of his wealth is not abandoned.
The greed for money is very difficult. It is a deep whirlpool of pain, full of crocodiles in the form of conceit and jealousy. Only a desireless person can swim across these difficult waters.
There is unending enmity between avarice and Brahman. How can he attain salvation and practice self–denial who has no time for meditation? A covetous man is a fallen man.
Where there is greed, there is no peace, no contentment, nor restfulness. All means (of achieving Brahman) turn to dust when avarice takes hold of the mind.
He who indulges in low, forbidden acts and stoops down to lowest behaviour, unacceptable to the Shrutis and the Smritis, and who is permanently leading that kind of life, can never have equanimity of mind.
Such a man is called whimsical. He is always engaged in wicked deeds, permanently wallowing in worldly pleasures and he never understands what is good or bad.
May be he has understood the nature of Brahman but if he is not detached from the fruits of his action, then his knowledge of the Brahman is futile and he is not self-realised.
If anybody approaches a Saint and asks for anything, a Saint first judges whether he is worthy of it and then grants him his desire accordingly.
One whose mind is engaged day and night in boasting about material achievements and seeking pleasures, for such a person the preachings of a Guru are of no use. For both, it is a sheer waste of time!
He who tries to penetrate the realm of divine life without the purification of his mind, his efforts appear like an exhibition of scholarship. It is all a futile effort.
Therefore, one should speak only what one understands; and should eat what one can digest otherwise unnecessarily there will be indigestion. Everybody knows this.
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.
