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 [ debu7366@yahoo.com ] ...............May Sai always give us peace of mind and May he always make us feel His presence where ever we go....

Pir Lal Shahbaaz Qalander

English translation of 'Dama dam mast kalandar'
This song is in the honor of Sufi mystic 'Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalandar'. Every word of his name has a meaning - he was known as Hazrat ( prophet of GOD ), Lal ( he wore red robes or mothers fondly call their kids as Lal ), Shahbaz ( Shah - King and Baz - Falcon, king of falcons and an Iranian GOD who led them to victory, a divine spirit ), and finally Qalandar ( a qalandari - a sufi saint, poet, mystic, noble man ). He settled in Serwan ( Sindh, now in Pak ) and tried bringing peace between Hindus and Muslims. Hindus regard him as GOD and reincarnate as well. You can hear many Punjabi singers, singing in his praise. He is also fondly called as Jhulelal.
So the song goes like this :
O laal meri pat rakhio bala jhoole laalan,
Sindri da Sehvan da, sakhi Shabaaz kalandar,
Dama dam mast kalandar, Ali dam dam de andar
(O the red robed, May I always have your benign protection, Jhulelal (as he was affectionately called ). O, the lord,the friend and the Sire of Sindh and Sehwan ( or Serwan ),The red robed God-intoxicated Qalandar, The lord in every breath of mine, glory unto to you)
Chaar charaag tere baran hamesha,
Panjwa mein baaran aayi bala jhoole laalan
O panjwa mein baaran,
O panjwa mein baaran aayi bala jhoole laalan,
Sindri da - Sehvan da, sakhi Shabaaz Qalandar,
Dama dam mast Qalandar, Ali dam dam de andar
(Your shrine is always lighted with four lamps, And here I come to light a fifth lamp in your honor . Let your heroic name ring out in Hind & Sindh ( or lets the gongs bell loud ), Let the gong ring loud for your glory day and night by the people ( ghariyal - watchman, symbolism of night )
Har dam peera teri khair hove,
Naam-e-ali beda paar laga jhoole laalan,
O naam-e-ali, O naam-e-ali beda paar laga jhoole laalan,
Sindri da sehvan da sakhi Shabaaz Qalandar,
Dama dam mast Qalandar, Ali dam dam de andar
( O Lord, may you prevail every-time, everywhere, I pray of your well being, In the name of Ali, I pray to you to help my boat cross (the river of life) in safety)
O laal meri pat rakhio bala jhoole laalan,
Sindri da Sehvan da, sakhi Shabaaz kalandar,
Dama dam mast kalandar,
Ali dam dam de andar
Chaar charaag tere baran hamesha,
Panjwa mein baaran aayi bala jhoole laalan
O panjwa mein baaran,
O panjwa mein baaran aayi bala jhoole laalan,
Sindri da Sehvan da, sakhi Shabaaz Qalandar,
Dama dam mast Qalandar,
Ali dam dam de andar
Har dam peera teri khair hove,
Naam-e-ali beda paar laga jhoole laalan,
O naam-e-ali, O naam-e-ali beda paar laga jhoole laalan,
Sindri da sehvan da sakhi Shabaaz Qalandar,
Dama dam mast Qalandar, Ali dam dam de andar

Location:
The town of Sehwan is 300 Kilometres’ about five hours drive from Karachi on Indus Highway, which forks right of Super Highway just before Hyderabad at Jamshoro past University of Sindh. The city is known for its patron saint Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalandar (RA) who lived here in 13th century AD. Now, his Mazar (tomb) stands there. It is beautiful and amazing, but it is new. Government of Pakistan pulled down the primeval tomb to build this new one. The main reason was space. The old tomb arrangement was too small for such a giant crowd.
It is possible that the name Sehwan originates from "Siwistan" or "Seevistan", the empire of Raja Dahir which even extended to Punjab under the name "Shivi". It was momentous enough during the 8th century to be conquered by Muhammad bin Qasim in 711 CE, and two centuries later by Mahmud of Ghazni. An abortive attempt was made by the Mughal sovereign Humayun to take into custody it on his way to Umarkot but it finally fell to his son Akbar.
Who was Pir Lal Shahbaaz Qalander?
Pir (Saint) Lal Shahbaaz Qalandar was born as Syed Muhammad Usman in 1177 Marwand, Iran. His Father Syed Ibrahim Kabiruudin was a dervish and his mother had a royal lineage. From a very young age boy Usman showed a deep religious inclination. He became a Hafiz (One who has memorized The Holy Koran) by age of seven. He got himself initiated into Qalandria sect of Sufism. ‘Qalandar’ are Sufi who live in indigence and are peripatetic. As a Qalandar he roamed throughout Middle East and came to Sindh.
He befriends three other Sufi saints and henceforth the quartet is known as ‘Chaar Yaar’ (four friends). They became the pioneers of 13th century Sufi association. The other three friends were Baba Farid Shakar Ganj of Pakpattan [1174-1266] (popularly known as Baba Farid); Jalaluddin Bukhari of Uch- Bahawalpur [1196-1294] and Bahauddin Zakaria of Multan [1170-1267].He reached Sehwan the settle of learning and customs in Sindh. Sehwan is one of the oldest cities in Sindh. During the reign of Guptas, Sehwan was the capital of a Buddhist ruler who was brother of Chandragupta II (also Known as Vikrmaditya), the third of the Gupta dynasty in the 4th century AD.
Lal Shahbaz Qalandar and his friends conceived the idea of coming over to India. The King of Baghdad, who loved and revered Lal Shahbaz Qalandar, entreated him not to leave Baghdad; but he, who felt the urge from within, could not see his way to remain, and soon after led his three companions on the holy mission that was to spreads Islam in India.
Many are the stories given about their adventurous journey: tradition is resonant with the voice of miracles. It is said that when the party arrived at the Persian Gulf and after they had reached one particular island they could not find a soul. They had to cross to some other place to secure a boat. Lal Shahbaz Qalandar said to his companions: "Depend upon God and enter the stream; but take care, you must have no attachment to the things of the world, otherwise the waters cannot give you a safe passage. Here is my bowl, lay your hands on it and it shall serve us as a boat." The four entered the stream. In the middle of the river the bowl began to sink and the companions along with it. Usman said to them, "One of you has some burden of the world on your person." Actually Bhawaldin, on of the three companions, had carried with himself a gold brick, calculating that it might be of some use on a rainy day. Marwandi ordered him to throw it into the river, and behold! As soon as the brick sant, the bowl came up and the friends safely reached the other side.
Lal Shahbaz Qalandar is said to have been challenged on the way by a famous ascetic to bathe in a tub of burning oil. He successfully passed the test. Thus he earned the title of Lal (a ruby) as the ascetic said to him, "Thou are indeed the Lal of Lal (the ruby of rubies)". This meant that Lal Shahbaz Qalandar was real gold having been tested by fire. He received no injury; only his robe turned crimson.
It is believed that Lal Shabaz Qalandar was so named because of the red robe he wore all his life, and a story is told of how Lal Shahbaz Qalandar rescued his friend Sheikh Farrid Shakar Ganj by a miracle from a baker's wife’s accusations.
Sarkar Qalandar Kibriya acquired his appellation of " Lal Shahbaz " by two remarkable miracles. Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander alaihir rehman and his three companions went to Makkah and Medina. As they were returning from the blessed vision of the Prophet's Tomb, they halted one night in a town on the coast of Arabia. Hazeat Shah Farid Shakar Ganj (Rahmatullahi Allaih) went to buy bread for the party. Un-happily the bakers wife conceived an unholy passion for the young man. Like a true ascetic he rejected her odious advances with the icy disdain of Saint Joseph. The baker's wife there upon behaved after the manner of Potiphar's consort. She began to scream that Hazeat Shah Farid Shakar Ganj (Rahmatullahi Allaih) had tried to outrage her. The un happy anchorite was seized, dragged before the Governor and condemned to instant execution. Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander alaihir rehman heard of it and took immediate steps to rescue his innocent friend. He changed one of two remaining friends into a deer and according to other chroniclers the other was changed into a lion with direction was to take place to attract the attention of the mass of the people who had gathered to witness the execution and bade him run towards the gallows. The crowd ran madly after the deer to catch it. Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander alaihir rehman turned his second friend into lion. It charged the executioners roaring terribly. They fled continually. Lastly Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander alaihir rehmanchanged himself into a " Peregrine Falcon " and sweeping down picked up Hazeat Shah Farid Shakar Ganj (Rahmatullahi Allaih)and bore him to a place of safety. By this miracle the Sarkar Qalandar got the name of " SHAHBAZ ". The Sindhi word for a peregrine falcon.
The friends, in 1263, arrived in Sind, which included in those days Multan and some other portion of the Punjab, where people begged Lal Shahbaz Qalandar to stay. His three friends went to other lands. He continued journey south, eventually settling down in Sehwan in southern Sindh, where he took up residence in the trunk of a tree on the outskirts of town for 6 years. He spread his teachings and preached religious tolerance between Hindus and Muslims.
He established his Khanqah in Sehwan and started teaching in Fuqhai Islam Madarrsah; during this period he wrote his treatises Mizna-e-Sart, Kism-e-Doyum, Aqd and Zubdah.
The legend has it that the incumbent fakirs in Sewhan sent him a bowl of milk filled to the brim indicating that the place was already full of faqirs and there was no room for one more. He returned the bowl floating a single flower on the top suggesting by this reply that there was ample room for him, as he would remain among them floating as a flower. His legend spread far and wide by the time of his death in 1274,after living a good span for 97 years. Thus a sacred flower was planted in the soil of Sind.
On his way from Baluchistan to Sindh, he also stayed in present day Karachi's Manghopir area for muraqba (meditation), and it is said that Manghopir's natural warm fountain is a miracle of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar. That warm fountain started to flow from beneath the hill, on which Lal Shahbaz sat for muraqba (meditation). After passing hundreds of years, that warm fountain is still flowing continuously and is said to have miraculous healing power especially for asthma patients.
It is related that when in early youth and initial stage of His life career the Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander alaihir rehman was greatly influenced by Divine Love. It is said that Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander alaihir rehman called the drummer every Friday and to the tune of the drum would perform the mystic dance and in the end he would dive in earth leaving behind a Ruby as the labor charges of the drummer and would then appear at the other end of the street. Mystic dance and Divine Ecstasy it is the watch word of the mystics addicted to Divine Love. Even the Holy Quran is clear where it says " Love thy Lord ". When the Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander Alaihir Rehman set his foot on the soil of Sehwan ( Sivisthan ) the red light area went cold and the animal activities of the area went dead. The sinners repented and concluded that the arrival of the Great Saint was the cause.
Then at the place where the great shrine stands the Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander alaihir rehman engaged laborers to prepare the ground for settlement. But an insolent local Turk who happened to be there opposed the Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander alaihir rehman. The Great Saint got enraged and struck him with a wand which was in his hand. The wretch died on the spot. The report went to Governor who called Sultan Qalandar and on the enquiry was informed that no human being was killed but a rabid dog had met his natural destiny and that he was buried at such and such a place. When the place was unearthed they found the body of a dog there not of a human being. This miracle created further impression of reverence and regard for the Great Saint.
Sehwan was a prosperous city in the days when Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander Alaihir Rehman settled there. History records it that Malik Iftikhar Din was the Administrator of Sehwan. This administrator so the history goes guided by his lower self had the temerity to test the divine power of Sarkar Qalandar He ordered his cook to kill a cat of foreign origin, cook it well and carry it is fine crockery to the Great Saint and inform him about the result. The cook followed the foolish instructions of the master and prepared a rich dish out of it and took it to the Holy Saint. The Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander alaihir rehman knew of the mischief already. As soon as the dish was presented the Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander alaihir rehman became angry and observed that the Governor was not a human being and uttered " Get up with Gods " Command ". The cat stood alive and ate the other dishes and the remainder was sent to the Governor to be finally informed of his uncouth act and mischief. The Governor came and offered full amends and apologized to the Great Saint of Islam who ultimately pardoned him.
It is related that his companions insisted that the Prince Mystic joined them in traditional prayers. They were about 2 dozen " Abdals ". Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalander alaihir rehman would not like to disappoint them. Soon after he joined them and the prayers were in progress when drops of red water began to drop from his person and each drop was more valuable than a ruby or a gem. An occult voice called out Qalandar was " Persona grata " with his Divine Majesty. The companions kissed his hands as a token of obvious esteem and regard.
Shrine
The shrine around his tomb, built in 1356, gives a dazzling look with its Sindhi kashi tiles, mirror work and two gold-plated doors - one donated by the late Shah of Iran, the other by the late Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. The inner sanctum is about 100 yards square with the silver canopied grave in the middle. On one side of the marble floor is a row of about 12 inch high folding wooden stands on which are set copies of Quran for devotees to read. On the other side, beside a bundle of burning agarbattis (joss sticks), are rows of diyas (small oil lamps) lighted by Hindu devotees.
Urs
His annual Urs (death anniversary celebration) is held on the 18 Sha'aban - the eighth month of the Muslim lunar calendar. Thousands of devotees flock to the tomb while every Thursday their number stands multiplied especially at the time of his 'Urs' being a carnival as well a religious festival and celebrated every year. Sehwan springs to life and becomes the focal point of more than half a million pilgrims from all over Pakistan. On each morning of the three day feast, the narrow lanes of Sewhan are packed to capacity as thousands and thousands of pilgrims, fakirs and devotees make their way to the shrine to commune with the saint, offer their tributes and make a wish. Most of the people present garlands and a green chadar (a cloth used to cover a tomb) with Qur'anic inscriptions in silver or gold threads. Humming of verses, singing and dancing in praise of the saint continues till late at night. A devotional dance known as 'dhamal', being a frenzied and ecstatic swirl of the head and body, is a special ritual that is performed at the rhythmic beat of the [dhol] (a big barrel-shaped drum), some of them being of giant size and placed in the courtyard of the shrine. Bells, gongs, cymbals and horns make a thunderous din, and the dervishes, clad in long robes, beads, bracelets and colored head-bands whirl faster and faster in a hypnotic trance, until with a final deafening scream they run wildly through the doors of the shrine to the courtyard beyond
May Pir 'Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalandar' bless our soul and help us cross this river of birth and death so that we become one with him. And last but not the least, May we always sing His glory and burn the lamp of devotion in His honour.
Shri Shirdi Sai said...
Leaving out pride and egoism and with no trace of them, you should surrender yourself to Me, who is seated in your heart
Love can melt Even the Stone-Hearted
Every person in this world pines for love. We search for such pure love which sincerely seeks the goodness of all. But, it is not so easy to get such love. Love is like a lyre (Veena) that pulls the strings of two hearts. Love is God. It could be grasped only when we realize that it is a divine form and commune with it in love. It is enough to contemplate with love on Sai, the Divine Incarnation who descended on the earth with love for humanity. Divine love is the master-key to free us from the bondage of troubles and release us from the prison of sufferings. We can experience pleasure, peace, solace and immense joy through such love. We could love and help all universal beings and share the words of hope and Baba's teachings with all.Our service coupled with God's love will not only make the sick healthier and the agitated minds rest at peace. It wipes away all evil thoughts and takes us closer to Baba. Not content with love we get, we should long for the opportunity to get delighted by the sweet experience of sharing our love with all, in our words and deeds. With the key of love, we can unlock even the toughest heart of an individual. Love has the power to tame even cruel animals. When mortal love has so much power, the Cosmic Love-Power of Baba has no limit in melting millions of stone-hearted ones.
