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....

A Beautiful Sculpture of Shirdi Sai Baba cooking for Devotees at the "Sai Palkhi Nivara" in Nimgaon, 1km from Shirdi`Maharashtra, has become a crowd-puller.
Designed by a 34-year-old Pune-based sculptor Shri.Jitendra Sutar, this 15-ft x 25-ft Sai Baba's Sculpture made in Fibreglass took 5 months to complete.The Sculpture adorns the outer wall of the main building near the place where prasad is served to the devotees. It shows Shirdi Sai Baba putting his hand in a big Cauldron to stir the food being prepared for poor people.The "Sai Palkhi Nivara" has been constructed by "Om Shri Sai Dham Mandir Trust" Virar (Mumbai),
to provide lodging and meals to Devotees.
01st Jan`2011
Many devotees now prefer to ring in the New Year at some Holy place and or with their Guru. With this desire, around 3 lakh devotees reached Shirdi to be in the company of their beloved Baba for New Years Eve,for which the Sai Sansthan had kept Baba's Samadhi Temple open the full night on 31st to enable the devotees to have Darshan.
So, this New Years Eve Sai Baba also did not sleep as lakhs of devotees had lined up for his Darshan. Bhajan Kirtan continued through out the night and so there was no Shayan Aarti or the Kakad Aarti of Baba, on 01st Jan`2011.Many devotees came walking all the way to Shirdi carrying Sai Palkis with them.The atmosphere at the Shirdi Sai Temple was showering with devotion. In front of Lendi garden devotees lit thousands of candles, while some were reading the Shri Sai Satcharitra wherever they could find a place to sit and do so.People were also singing Sai bhajans in Hindi, Marathi, Kannada and Tamil.As the Clock struck 12:00 at midnight, the Bells started ringing in the Sai Temple.The devotees who were waiting in queues outside the temple bowed their Heads and did Pranam to the Temple's Kalash (Dome) and started chanting Prayers to welcome the New-year 2011.
However, at this moment devotees could not have Sai Baba's Mukh Darshan for a short period because of the VIP crowd having Darshan inside. The darshan queue was so big that the entire Pimpalwadi Road was full of devotees and to manage which, the Trustee of the Sai Baba Temple Shri.Jayant Sasane, the Executive Office Shri.Kishore More & the additional Executive Officer Dr.Yashwant Mane were monitoring the darshan queue arrangement. But because the Temple was open the whole night, the crowd was easily controlled. In one hour minimum 10 thousand devotees were having Baba's Darshan, because of which in the night almost 1 lakh devotees took Darshan. In two days itself, at the Shirdi Sai Prasadalaya each day around 40,000 devotees had their meals.Some devotees had given the Free Prasad Meal donation becuase of which the Meals were given to everyone for free. One such devotee from Gujarat Shri.Aalap Rajubhai Patel donated Rs.11 lakh and 11 thousand for the free prasad meal scheme for everyone to have free meals from 14th to 17th Jan`2011.
Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shri.Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel, Supreme Court Judge Shri.Dalveer Bhandari, Officer Shri.Rajgopal Devra, Shri.Anilkumar Likhna & Minister of Social Justice Shri.Shivajirao Moghe and some Actors, Industrialists, Singers etc too reached Shirdi to receive Baba's Blessings.

Mostly people go to Shirdi to seek Baba's blessings either for themselves or their near & dear ones,but this is one such instance which will be remembered, where not one or two but 200 Eunuchs went to Shirdi to offer Prayers to Baba, not for themselves, but for India on the whole.
On 01st Jan`2011,200 Eunuchs went to Shirdi for Baba's Darshan . Each one of them was holding a lit candle as they walked systematically in rows, towards the Sai Baba Temple. When inside the Temple, in the Sanctum Sanctorum they offered prayers and asked for Peace and Unity in India.
They prayed to Baba to remove Corruption from the Country and to give the correct understanding to all the Corrupt People/Politicians so that they amend their ways and reform themselves, failing which, Baba should punish them equally.


01st Jan`2011

On 01st Jan`2011, Smt.Pratima Rani Das, a Sai Devotee from Mumbai`Maharashtra
donated a 1 Kg Golden Garland worth Rs.19 Lakh to Sai Baba at Shirdi. Also present on the occasion were,Deputy Executive Officer of Sai Baba Sansthan Trust Dr.Yashwantrao Mane & Temple Incharge Shri.Ramarao Shelke.

Thus speak Baba
I shall provide light when darkness shrouds
I shall cheer you up when agony clouds
I shall safeguard you while combating hard times
I shall provide strength on feeling exhaust pangs
I shall provide solution when problems lay ahead
I shall show the right path on feeling panicked
I shall shower love apart from condoning mistakes
I am the merciful form, regret not the past acts
I shall cleanse those who repent for the sordid deeds
I shall pardon fault, point rights and lead on paths fine
I cannot stay leaving you alone even for a moment
Yes, you are mine. I am your Father, don't forget.
....Sai Baba
Quote of BABA:
No quest can be successfully carried out on an empty stomach.
