“Let us all four do some Bhajan,
the doors of Pandhari are open, let us sing merrily!”


Then they began to sing in chorus, the bhava of the song being

“I have to go to Pandharpur and
I have to stay on there, for it is the house of my Lord.”

“There will never be any dearth or scarcity, regarding food and clothes
in My devotee’s home. It is my special characteristic, that I always look
to and provide for, the welfare of those devotees, who worship Me
wholeheartedly with their minds ever fixed on Me."


(Sai Sat Charitra)

Rightly knowing Self is just like one, on awakening
from a dream, knowing that all the whirl of sufferings
experienced in that dream have become false and
that one is really the same unaffected one who was
previously lying safe on the soft bed.

Some say, “Know thyself” [but] is there anyone who
does not know himself? Tell me, is it not equally
ignorant to say “I have realized Self” as to say “I
have not realized Self”?

Only so long as the measurer [the mind] exists will
the measure and the measured also seem to exist as
real. But when the measurer [the mind] sees Self, the
really existing Thing, and is thereby lost in It, all
other things such as the measure, the measured and
the measuring will automatically become unreal.

It is very rare to get full faith in One [God or Guru]. If
such a faith blossoms in the heart [due to past merits],
do protect and nourish it, since it is similar to a
new-born baby, without spoiling it by giving room to
any doubts or suspicion, just as, if one possessed the
Kamadenu, one would bring it up with great care and love.

yes true sir, even today very meticulously, these worships are carried on in the ashram with great fervor and perfection and most importnatly with love.

O you that ridicule idol-worship, having not discovered
through heart-melting love its secret, how is
that you [daily] worship the filthy idol of your body as ‘I’?

Very true sri Jewel, i too pray this thread turns out well, and he bless us with what he wishes to bring to our conscience. i always wanted to delve more on teachings of Baba. previously i thought of posting the stories but they are big and require little effort to assimilate the essence, hence a thought occurred if he bless us with short quotes of His, through which the essence of His teachings are revealed.

"Slave of slaves I am your debtor, I am satisfied at your darshan.
It is a great favour that I saw your feet. I am an insect in your excreta.
I consider Myself blessed thereby".


He drew the devotees to Him, or how else one could have known Him!
For the sake of His Bhaktas Baba spoke such words, as the Goddness
of Speech dare not utter. Here is a specimen. Baba spoke very humbly as above.

What humility is this? If anybody would think that by publishing this,
any disrespect is shown to Sai, we beg His pardon and to atone for
this we sing and chant Baba's name.

Dear Sir,

I think the +1 beed becomes a pendant. at the centre. to get to know that one cycle of japa of 108 is over. therefore it comes like 108+1 54+1 or 27+1

"Take pity on Me like this.
First give bread to the hungry, and
then eat yourself. Note this well."


Context

Once, Mrs. Tarkhad was staying in a certain house in Shirdi. At noon, meals were ready and dishes were being served, when a hungry dog turned up there and began to cry, Mrs. Tarkhad got up at once and threw a piece of bread, which the dog gulped with great relish. In the afternoon, when she went to the Masjid and sat at some distance, Sai Baba said to her, "Mother, you have fed Me sumptuously up to my throat, My afflicted pranas (life-forces) have been satisfied. always act like this, and this will stand you in good stead."

"Don't be afraid, don't care a jot, the Merciful Fakir will save you,
go and sit quiet at home, don't go out, believe in Me and
remain fearless and have no anxeity"
