GURUVAAR PRARTHNA - 15/12/2016
Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, the thought processes have the form of divine or a demon, depending upon its contents. If we think thoughts of jealousy, envy, hatred, ill will, resentment, greed, dishonesty, they will stick to us wearing the form of demon. If we think thoughts of purity, peace, prayer, love, joy, sympathy or service, they stick to us wearing the form of divine. Baba, help us and guide us continuously towards divinity. On this holy day, we start our first step towards divinity by reading your divine guidance from Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.
He gave different kinds of observances to different people. To one, he suggested chanting the name of the Lord; to another, he suggested listening to the deeds of the Lord and yet, to another the worship of the feet of the Lord.
To some he prescribed the AdhyatmaRamayan; to some the recitation of Dñyaneshwari; to some he suggested reciting the Harivarda and to some to read Gurucharitra.
He would keep some near him; ask some to go to Khandoba's temple; to some he keenly suggested to study and memorise theVishnu Sahasranama.
To some he suggested the Ram Vijaya; to some meditation; to some the power of the name of the Lord; to some he suggested the Chandogya Upanishad and Gitarahasya and told them that through faith only they could understand the essence of all.
His ways of teaching were exceptional. Some were taught in a particular way, some in a different way. To some he taught directly and appeared in the dreams of others.
Many people from different castes came for his darshan and help. He even appeared in dreams to those who were fond of liquor.
He would sit on their chest pressing with his hands and feet and making them take a solemn vow never to drink again.
Like the pictures that are drawn by an astrologer on the walls of a house where a wedding is to take place he would write the mantra "Guru Brahma, Guru Vishnu "10 etc. in a dream vision on the walls of the house of another devotee.
If a person tried to practise the yogic asana and also the difficultHatha Yoga without Baba's knowledge, Baba would come to know about it because of his extra-sensory powers and then he would rightly penalise.
He would catch hold of someone, whom he did not even know, and send a message : "Can you not sit quietly, and patiently eat your bread? "
To some he would give an ultimatum and tell him that : "I ama very strict person by nature. I will tell you mildly only once or twice and if inspite of that you don't listen, at the end it will be very difficult for you.
I will try to tell once, to tell twice, but if a person does not care to listen to my words, even if he be my kith and kin, I will not hesitate to tear him apart and throw him away".
