One step closer to Brahma Gyaan

One step closer to Brahma gyan:::: A 'devotee' goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to the Temple . 'I've gone for 30 years now, he wrote, and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 mantras. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the Gurus are wasting theirs by giving services at all. This started a real controversy in the 'Letters to the Editor' column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher: I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this... They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to the Temple for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today! When you are DOWN to nothing.... God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment! ------------------------------ So easy to beat yourself up over mistakes you've made. So many amongst us live in the past rather than loving the present and building a brilliant future. Some people stay stuck for years over something they did or a failure they've experienced. Sad. A life is a terrible thing to waste. But let me ask you a question: "is there really such a thing as a mistake?" First of all, no one tries to fail or mess things up. Every one of us wakes up in the morning, walks out into the world and does the best we can do based on what we know and the skills we have. But even more importantly, every so-called "mistake' is actually a rich source of learning. An opportunity to build more awareness and understanding and gain precious experience. Experience that will help us do, feel and be even better. So, just maybe, there are no mistakes. Just maybe what we could call failures are actually growth lessons in wolf's clothing. And just maybe the person who experiences the most wins. ---------------------- A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to Leave the examination room and said, 'Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side.' Very quietly, the doctor said, 'I don't know.' 'You don't know? You, a Christian man, Do not know what is on the other side?' The doctor was holding the handle of the door; On the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, And as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room And leaped on him with an eager show of gladness. Turning to the patient, the doctor said, 'Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, And when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, But I do know one thing... I know my Master is there and that is enough.' ------------------------------- A boy and a girl were playing together. The boy had a collection of marbles. The girl had some sweets with her. The boy told the girl that he will give her all his marbles in exchange for her sweets. The girl agreed. The boy kept the biggest and the most beautiful marble aside and gave the rest to the girl. The girl gave him all her sweets as she had promised. That night, the girl slept peacefully. But the boy couldn't sleep as he kept wondering if the girl had hidden some sweets from him the way he had hidden his best marble. Moral of the story: If you don't give your hundred percent in a relationship, you'll always keep doubting if the other person has given his/her hundred percent.. This is applicable for any relationship like love, employer-employee relationship, friendship etc., Give your hundred percent to everything you do and sleep peacefully ---------------------- The tragedy of life is not death,but what we let die inside us while we live.When u were born,the world rejoiced while u cried,-live ur life in such a way that when you die,-the world cries while u rejoice.. -------------------------------- Your days are your life in miniature. As you live your days, so you craft your life. What you do today is actually creating your future. The words you speak, the thoughts you think, the food you eat and the actions you take are defining your destiny รข€“ shaping who you are becoming and what your life will stand for. There's no such thing as an unimportant day. Each of us is called to greatness. Each of us has an exquisite power within us. But for this power to grow, we need to use it. The more you exercise it each day, the stronger it gets. The more this power gets tapped, the more confident you grow. The best among us are not more gifted than the rest. They just take small steps each day as they march towards their biggest life. And the days slip into weeks, the weeks into months and before they know it, they arrive at a place called Extraordinary. ----------------------------- If you can not respect , love , care about ,stand by or be honest with your own parents ,-who gave birth to you and were the very first people who fell in love with you -- then whether you accept this or not but you do not love anyone else in this world either with all your heart and soul ....and time will show that none of your children will stand by you either- when you will need them the most.. ----------------------------------- If you sit with a person who is smoking, even without ur knowledge- You will end up inhaling second hand smoke.In the same way, if you be in the company of saints who constantly preach about the importance of doing good karma-, automatically even without ur knowledge- u will end up doing a lot of positive and humble deeds. If you be in the company of a person who keeps saying bad words and abusing others then then obviously whether u like it or not -- u will end up being the same kind of person sooner or later. And if u constantly listen to Gods name, his praises, his bhajans-even without you being aware of it - the words that will come out of your mouth will be nothing but the nectar of love and bliss. So be in the company of God and even without your knowledge-You will find him seated in your heart - talking to you and finding solutions to ur problems and worries.You just need to take one step towards Him and He will take 100 steps towards you.. By Deepa H inspired by Sai -------------------------------------------- Always tell someone that you love them because you never know what day Will be their last, or your own. Always seek to resolve your problems or disagreements with loved ones Because if either of you should pass on before, the one who is left alive will have the rest of their life to ponder those unresolved feelings but will never find closure. And closure usually brings Peace... ......................................................................................With lots of good wishes and regards to all from Deepa H and family [ ] ...............May Sai always give us peace of mind and May he always make us feel His presence where ever we go....

Revering All Saints
Bapkar Maharaj, a saint from Bairaig, once visited Mumbai. His devotee named Nanasahib Pitkar met him, and entreated him to stay at his residence for a couple of days.However, Bapkar Maharaj repeatedly requested him to allow him to leave, as he wanted to visit Shirdi. He had written to his son, and asked him to be at Shirdi the next day. So it was very important for
Bapkar Maharaj to be there. By that time Nanasahib and a lot of other devotees had come to have his darshan. Thus, he was unable to leave, as saints will go out of their way to fulfil the desires of their devotees.
Bapkar’s son reached Shirdi as planned. As he didn’t know anyone there he went to the Dwarka Mai and sat in a corner.Just prior to the Noon Arati, Baba caught sight of the young man seated in the corner. Baba, through his inner vision, came to know who that young man was, and sent Shama to bring the young man to the sanctum. Turning to the devotees seated
there, Baba said, “This young man’s father has attained great spiritual heights, and is a great saint.He was scheduled to come here today. But his devotees requested him to stay in Mumbai for another day, and he didn’t want to disappoint them. So we should honour his son appropriately. Shama, today this young
man will be seated on my asan and arati will be performed.”
So that day all of Baba’s devotees performed ritualistic worship and arati of that young man. Baba always treated the saints and sadhus that visited him with a lot of reverence.Thus, by example he also taught his devotees to have reverence for saints.

How Baba Solved Bhau Sahib Arnalkar’s Crisis
Bhau Sahib Arnalkar was an advocate by profession, and resided in Mumbai. At that time his friends often visited Pandarpur, and hardly anyone knew about Baba. But as he was an advocate, he happened to meet Dabolkar and Dev Mamlatdar, and a close friendship developed.Around that time Dabolkar was gathering leelas and material to write the Sat Charita, and he along with Dev often visited Shirdi. Hence
they often narrated Baba’s wonderful leelas to Bhau Sahib.Consequently, he became devoted to Baba and was eager to visit Shirdi.
At that point in time most people thought that Baba was a Muslim Saint. However Arnalkar had no doubt that Baba
was God Almighty, and hence a devotee could easily open his heart before his chosen deity. At that time Bhau had a financial crisis and he had no money for his daily expenses. Prior to
commencing his journey, Bhau had made up his mind that he would go to Shirdi and seek refuge at the feet of his Lord. In his mind he rehearsed what he would say, and time and again he reassured himself thinking, “If a devotee does not tell his troubles and sorrows to God, then who will he tell them to?” With this firm resolve in his mind he set out to Shirdi.
Upon reaching Shirdi, he went to the Dwarka Mai and
with utter devotion he prostrated before Baba. On this visit Bhau stayed in Shirdi for three days. He frequently went to the DwarkaMai but on every occasion there were numerous devotees around Baba, and at no time was Baba alone. Consequently Bhau could not open his heart to him. Bhau was
ashamed to tell Baba his problems in the presence of other devotees. On the 4th day Baba called him, made him sit close to him and said, “You should leave now. Don’t you have any family or relatives?” Immediately Bhau placed his head on
Baba’s feet, and overcome by emotion, he was unable to speak. Now Bhau thought, “It is a custom in Shirdi that no one can stay a minute longer when Baba asks them to leave. But I had to tell Baba my problems and was unable to do so. Now I had
better leave.” Disappointed, he started walking towards the exit, when Baba called out to him. Baba asked him, “Bhau how much money do you have?” Bhau’s spirits lifted and he thought,
“Great! Baba himself has brought up the topic of money.” Bhau told him that he had three rupees and some annas, and the money was sufficient for his return journey. Then Baba asked
him to give him that entire sum of money, saying, “Give me that money. Arre! Even a fakir needs money.” Quietly, Bhau handed the money to him. Baba said, “The tonga is outside waiting for you Hurry up and go.”
Disappointed, Bhau went to the waiting tonga. The driver was an acquaintance, so he made place for Bhau, although the tonga was full. The driver didn’t take any fare from him as his tonga was filled with passengers. Soon, they reached the
station. Now how was he to reach Mumbai? Travelling without a ticket was an offence.With these thoughts he was waiting on the platform, when the train for Mumbai arrived. From the bogie that was in front of him, someone called out, “Vakil Sahib, come into this bogie.” The bogie was a 2nd class bogie, and like a robot, Bhau entered it. The person who had called out to him was an old friend of his, who was a Railway Officer. Bhau confessed that he did not have a ticket. His friend said, “When I am travelling with you to Mumbai why do you worry? By Baba’s grace we have met after so many months.” Together they had a comfortable journey and reached Mumbai.
Upon alighting from the train his friend went off somewhere.At the exit there was a Railway Officer checking the tickets, and he would not move away from the gate. Just then two
rustic villagers entered the station, pushing the officer out of the way. They came straight to Bhau and handed him a bagthat contained three hundred rupees in it. Then one of the men said, “Vakil Sahib, I had come here to meet this friend of
mine. But by Baba’s grace I met you here. After three days my case is scheduled to start, so please take this money, otherwise I would have to come all the way to Vasai, to give you the fees.”
Bhau was speechless, as Baba had remedied his problem silently and appropriately.
 Like the advocate Bhau Sahib Arnalkar, we also have crises in our spiritual journey to reach Baba. However he removes all the obstructions or obstacles from the path by taking away the root cause, and makes us penniless (taintless)
*Once he makes us pure, he then makes the necessary arrangements for our progress.Our duty is to follow his orders like a robot
*Once we follow his orders he blesses us to manage the trigunas (the three subtle components) for our future progress and advancement
Ref.: Shri Sai Leela Magazine, Volume 58, No. 7, October 1979.

Sometimes Sai removes things from our lives for our own protection. Trust in Him.
Just because you can't see the air, doesn't mean you stop breathing. Just because you can't see Sai doesn't mean you stop believing.
Sai has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and it takes a lot of faith but it's worth the wait.
