Shirdi Saibaba - Happy Baba's Day

May Baba Bless Us All

One can enjoy Perfect Health by Baba's Grace

It is said that the lives of theists are devoid of any problems. Sometimes, in spite of the faith in God, one may face hardships as a result of the accumulated sins committed in the past. But, we can understand the acts of God only by firm faith. In fact, 'adversity' provides an opportunity to come more closer to God.

While some problems disturb the mind, others harm the body in the form of disease. If you think, "Baba's blessings are there, why should I fear" and sincerely offer prayers, you will be blessed with good health in return. Baba kept the mentally disturbed Nulkar in Macchindraghad and blessed him with the much sought solace. Tumours on the body, plague and other chronic diseases were cured by Baba's sacred ash.I t is no ordinary boon to be in the presence of Baba. For this, a devotee's heart must be soaked in devotion. The minor irritants are only tests that Baba conducts to mend our ways and turn His believers as ardent devotees. 

With little provocations Baba will scare obedient devotees. Won't children run to the mother and embrace her in fear? Likewise, when devotees seek shelter at Baba's feet, He would hug them, drive their fears away and gives them good health. Hence, the feeling of 'I' should be given up and all our burdens must be placed on His shoulders. Baba, the Compassionate Mother, grants us everlasting peace and joy.

Teachings of Shirdi Saibaba

Playing Game of Marbles With Baba
Oh children, hear my words attentively,
Marbles is not an easy game to take lightly,
Aiming right, the other marble should be hit,
How to play, should be your mind's ploy instant,
On losing the game, won't you feel like weeping
Won't victory be yours on patiently playing,
With devotion should any work be done,
With right spirit any study should begun,
Forever shall I remain your companion,
It's time to mature into a righteous human.

Helping the Needy is the Great Virtue

To do good to others is to promote their welfare. God bestowed on man the capacity to help the living beings. It is not only our capability but it is our responsibility too.

Helping others is the best of the human Dharma. If one bird gets trapped, many birds flock around it and attract the attention of others so that the trapped bird may be released and saved. If birds have such a good trait of love and concern to help each other, man, blessed with intellect and wisdom, should be more kind and considerate to his fellow beings.

One may help when asked for help. It is God's help if one lends, unasked, his helping hand to the one in distress or in great need. Man should rise to such moral heights. To do good to the one who did good to us is a mark of humanity. It is Baba's philosophy that we should do good to the one who did hurt us. To love our enemies is divine. Selfishness aims at gains for one's self. Great are people who help others at their own loss. God loves such souls of selflessness. 

Ordinary people may help others as long as they do not lose much. Self-interest rules their minds. Some people deliberately hurt others whose success they are jealous of. They hurt others even if they did not lose anything. It is better to avoid the company of the evil-minded.

Only those with a heart full of love will be happy to serve the society. Baba-blessedly, they always live gladly.
