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 – 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....

Shri Shirdi Sai Speaks-11th Nov/Wishing u all a vey Happy and blessed Gurupurab [Must see mail]

Om Sai Ram
Gurpurab, also known as Guru Nanak Birthday, is the birthday of the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak, and one of the most sacred festivals in Sikhism. Apart from Sikhs, the Nanakpanthi Hindus and other followers of Guru Nanak’s philosophy also celebrate this festival.
Sikh Guru’s birthdays are known as Gurpurab.
It's the 542nd birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev, founder of Sikhism.
Let's pray this Gurpurab nurture goodwill and remove ill-will between all religions. ..
A devotee takes a ritual bath at the water tank of the illuminated Bangla Sahib Sikh temple on the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak in New Delhi, India, Thursday, Nov. 10, 2011. Sikhism was founded in the 15th century by Guru Nanak, who broke away from Hinduism, India's dominant religion. He preached the equality of races and genders, and the rejection of image-worship and the caste system.
Indian Sikh devotees light candles as they pay their respects at the illuminated Golden Temple in Amritsar on November 10, 2011. Devotees thronged the temple on the occasion of the 542nd birthday of Sri Guru Nanak Dev. Guru Nanak was the first of ten Sikh Gurus.

A Sikh holds a Chaur on the occasion of the 542nd birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev, the founder of the Sikh faith, in Kolkata November 10, 2011. The Chaur is used to fan the Guru Granth Sahib, the holy religious book of Sikhs, as a sign of reverence and respect for the scriptures
Guru Nanak’s teaching is understood to be practised in three ways:
  • Vaṇḍ Chakkō: Sharing with others, helping those with less who are in need
  • Kirat Karō: Earning/making a living honestly, without exploitation or fraud
  • Naam Japna: Chanting the Holy Name and thus remembering God at all times (ceaseless devotion to God)
Guru Nanak put the greatest emphasis on the worship of the Word of God (Naam Japna). One should follow the direction of awakened individuals (Gurmukh or God willed) rather than the mind (state of Manmukh- being led by Self will)- the latter being perilous and leading only to frustration.

Wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy and blessed Gurupurab.May Guru Nanak Devji help us to help others who are in pain and May He show us the path that will lead us to God thru our Good karmas and Humble thoughts. 
With lots of good wishes ,
Deepa H and family

Quote of BABA:
My treasury is full and I can give anyone what he wants, but I have to see whether he is qualified to receive what I give.
 This is for all those who were not able to understand the videos that I had mailed in yesterdays message. Thanks to Asha Tayi for sending me a translation which had so much information about the blissful  temple of Shri Shirdi Sainath.For all those like me who do not understand telugu -- Here is a brief info abt this temple
Regarding Shri Shirdi Sai Speaks-10th Nov / Blissful pictures of Baba on my cell
Below is the copy of the email sent to me by Sai devotee Asha tayi.
Sai ram.
Hi deepa
Thanks a lot for sharing those wonderful pics with us. The telecast was in Telugu (State language of Andhra pradesh). Here is a small try to translate it for u ! Please don't mind for any mistakes or spelling errors.
In the first video = Firstly pooja is performed for prana prathishta.
An elderly man (his name was written as A. S Narayana coudn't read completely as the logo of the news channel blocked the view) spoke about Sri Shirdi Sai Baba’s aims . Baba’s aim was Samaanathvam- equality towards all humans, religion & caste, maanavathvam - humanity ,prema thathvam – that is to show prema/love towards all and have shradda & saburi
He spoke about how Baba felt happy when anyone helped those in misery, destitute or diseased. Or when someone fed the hunger.
He referred that Baba is Omnipresent, lives in all beings and he knows all that we do. His aura spread all over. Many devotees read his leelas & followed his path. Many started baba foundations to help the needy. The elderly man told that since Baba loved to treat the poor, in 1944 they opened Shirdi Sai Seva Mandir in Puduru (in Ranga Reddy district, Andhra Pradesh), which had various clinics - dental, eye, general etc., With Free treatment many got benefitted and felt happy.
They are conducting 10 – 15 free eye operations per week in near by hospitals. Some of the dental treatments are free and others are conducted at nominal charges of Rs 3/-.

They have opened these clinics in Krishna district , Nalgonda district, (both districts are in Andhra Pradesh), sanathnagar (in Hyderabad). Initially they started clinic in a small room with baba's picture, latter Mr. Chowdary garu from Natco pharmaceutical company offered to build a temple . At that time not many people around that place knew about Baba. Many people experienced Sri Sai Baba's leelas and started pouring into the temple offering prayers & coconuts. Devotees came there from the neighboring 25 villages.
Mr. Sreedhar Kalidindi from America noted the progress of the temple and clinics and  volunteered to offer Baba’s idol. Sri Shirdi Sai Baba's Idol was made in Jaipur and brought to Puduru (in Ranga Reddy district, Andhra Pradesh) .
Prana prathishta & pooja were performed to the idol. People & priest of that temple felt that Sri Sai Baba's Idol ressembles the one in Shirdi.
Thank u.
Sai Sevak.
