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....

The most wonderful paintings of Shirdi Sai that I have ever seen!!!
All the below paintings in this mail are painted by Sai devotee Navneet Agnihotri.
Guess who is this in the above picture????
This is the painting which Sai devotee Navneet Agnihotri made in Paschim Vihar Sai dham Jugalbandi event in 4 hours. This painting was 1st made in the year 2000 for the Rohini Sec 7 Sai baba temple. This is Sai devotee Navneet Agnihotri's own creation and it gave him the recognition in the field of baba's painting by the grace of Sai. Till now more than 700 paintings(approx.)... of this pose have been made by him & the similar one can also be seen in Sai Prasadalaya in Shirdi .
I am sure a lot of you know Sai devotee Navneet Agnihotri - the painter of all these wonderful pictures of Sai but for all those who have never heard about him , below is a small description about him
Shri Navneet Agnihotri - The Artist
Born on 11th June, 1976 in a great artist’s house Shri Y.D.Sharma Agnihotri, in Delhi. Mr. Navneet Agnihotri is the only son amongst 3 children. He opened his eyes in a Sai believer family. Along with his parents, he got support and affection from his elder sisters Deepika and Jyoti as well. He was never inclined towards studies, always used to see out of windows for flying kites, birds, playing children, growing trees and plants, and other nature related things with philosophical thinking.Although being a hardworking father’s son, he was still involved in bad company throughout his childhood. He always tolerated the bad behavior of his relatives, friends & neighbors. He had no interest painting; he even says that he disliked the smell of the colors.
In the year 1994, when he visited Shirdi for the second time, his mother Smt. Usha Rani Ji decided to read the complete holy book “Shri Sai Satcharitra” for a bright future of his son in a week's time. This reading was completed in ‘Dwarka Mai Masjid” in Shirdi, At this time his mother said “Ask anything you want from Baba”. He bent down in front of Baba’s Picture and recollected his internal feelings, but could only end up asking a question –
“Baba tell me, what is my future?”
While returning from shirdi, in the railway compartment he drew some paintings of Shri Sai Baba and was appreciated a lot from the passengers. He got his answer from Baba about his future and after that he started his Journey as a painter. He completed 3 yrs Diploma from Delhi Institute of Arts & Technical, 1 year Commercial Art Course from S.C.V.T (Delhi) and then completed his painting specialization from Delhi College of Arts as a non collegiate student.
He came into limelight as painter after making the largest "SAI BABA" painting in ASIA.
He started making baba's painting for different Sai Baba temples all across the globe; he is a well known artist these days and has also made lot of paintings for books like Sai Sneh, Fakir ki pathshaala, sai ki aur mera pehla kadam and many more. In the inauguration programme of Asia's largest painting one media person took his photograph for publishing and from that day he became a famous name in media.Later on at the age of 25 he got married to Shweta Agnihotri and now has 2 blessed sons Daksh and Navansh Agnihotri.
Today paintings made by Navneet Agnihotri are exhibited in more than 118 temples of India, Australia, London, America, Singapore, Canada, Dubai, Abu dhabi, etc. He has made more than 3000 paintings of various kinds. Accordingly to him he is more blessed than educated.
He gifted one of his paintings to new Prasadalya in Shirdi, in return the painting was inaugurated by Hon'ble President of India, Smt. Pratibha Patil Ji. In near future, he is planning to do a Sai painting exhibitions with a beautiful concept all across the globe.
'JUGALBANDI' means a combination of music and live painting on stage.
Watching navneet painting live was a dream of many sai followers. One day suddenly he realized that when he was painting, he felt that the brush in his own hand was moving exactly same as the beats of music were spreading through out. At that time an idea of Jugalbandi clicked in his mind and the dreams of many of us was fulfilled by him. He performed his first ever 'Jugalbandi' at "Kamani" Auditorium, Delhi and the money raised by the painting was donated to the 'Prayas' sanstha which is a NGO helping orphan children. 2nd Jugalbandi was organized at the time of release of the debut album "Sai Maa" of Sai Glory Production House his own production company, the funds raised in this programme was donated to a victim of Mumbai's terrorist attack, Black cat commando hawaldar Gajender Singh's family. His brush jumps on the canvas exactly as beats of music and people feels immense pleasure watching it and yes this is the USP of Jugalbandi, he has performed live with Manhar Udas, Parmod Medi, Anil Hansal and many other singers.
Navneet's father always wanted to help others. In the same way Navneet also wanted to do something different in the form of creativity and promote others. So one day he came up with a thought of starting his own music company with Mr. Aman Maingi and they started there company - "Sai Glory Production House" and after crossing all the hurdles they successfully launched there company's debut devotional album 'Sai Maa' with a child in Sai Baba's lap picture on the cover of the album painted by him. This album was released in the memory of his father in his imagination as his own father holding him in his arms. The success of the album took Navneet to a new height in the industry of music. His creativity helps his music company in getting unique ideas
This is true that when God blesses a man, man can become great like Shri Navneet Agnihotri.

Feeding the Poor is the best of all charities
Mankind is bestowed with hands by God. Along with them, one should exercise one's discretion and give in charity something of what one has. To 'donate', means 'to give'. We have to give what others are badly in need of. Donating from what we have in excess is not regarded as donation at all. The wise say, feeding the hungry is the best of all charities. God gifted us this rare body not only to serve but to abide by righteousness. We need sufficient food to keep the body in good health so that it can engage in spiritual practice of merging one's soul with that of the Supreme Spirit. Therefore, serving food to the hungry is a great service to God. Though Baba took bhiksha, Baba Himself used to cook and serve food with love.Nothing but the charity of feeding the hungry propitiates the Supreme Spirit who dwells in every being in the form of digestive fire. Hence, Baba never encouraged devotees to fast and when Radhabai Deshmukh fasted, Baba opposed it. Baba always preached that fixing one's mind on God is the real fasting, which means staying in God's presence. Sai fed a hungry dog with a roti (bread) prepared and brought to Him by Laxmi Bhai. The offering of food which nurtures the body will lead man to the path of rectitude and it is the best of all charities. Baba set an example by Himself cooking and serving the food.
