Baba, My Beloved

When someone scolds, weep not child dear
Cause your cheeks may turn pink-petal color
You are sweet, lack nothing dear
If piqued by someone bad, do not vent anger
Keep smiling, O ! My little little child
'cause no one on this earth,
except you is so good,
These soothing words lit confidence in the child
In quest of Baba, love overflowed
Child began admiring, "Baba, our dearest"
And pleaded Baba, be with me always closest.

Faith Means.....

To have faith in God is to install God on the throne of our hearts. Faith means, to trust in the Omnipotence of God and to firmly believe that God answers our prayers. A man of faith stands in firm faith of God when everyone deserts him. Faith means burning the bridges already crossed in order to go ahead firmly. Faith never hesitates to give what it has to. 
Having faith in God today, with similar spirit for tomorrow, is the mark of faith. Faith is the antonym and an antidote to fear. Ways are many, but to repose trust in God is a sign of faith. A man of faith will not rely on his conviction, but abides by God's command.Faith works miracles in one's life and makes the sick healthy. Roots of faith sink deeper and grow stronger by constantly remembering God. In order to erect rock-like faith, we must keep reading the teachings of Baba, have a firm grasp of His message and hold on to His Feet. We must strive to walk in the foot-steps of Sainath. 
To praise Sai in good times, doubt Him and His Grace in bad times cannot make a true Sai devotee. Sri Sai Satcharitra narrates the experiences of many a devotee of faith who were baled out of troubled times and saved by taking refuge at the Feet of Sai. 
If we surrender to Baba believing Him to be our Father and Guiding-Light, He will not only take care of us but guide us to His Abode of Ever-Serene Peace.

Live a Life of Dew-Drop on a Lotus Leaf

The wise say that one should live like a dew-drop on a lotus leaf. God created the lotus leaf in such a manner that it does not get wet by the dew-drop. The lesson that the dew-drop on a lotus leaf teaches us is that we, made up of five elements are part of maya, should live unaffected by illusion (maya).  
Great souls descended on the earth in the form of noble teachers, the pious fakirs, saints and lived among us. They set an example to us as to how to live in the world of illusion, like a dew-drop on a lotus leaf. 
If Lord Rama grieved for his wife Sita or ordered her to pass the test of fire, it was only to uphold the dharma of monogamy of His time, not for Himself. 
Lord Krishna consumed butter and sand, got Himself balanced with basil leaves, bowed to Satyabhama or uttered lie only to uphold the Truth and not for His personal end. 
Likewise, Sadguru Sai begged alms, took money as dakshina, played marbles with kids, feigned anger only for the welfare of the world or good of His devotees. 
The leelas, miracles of Sai, as recorded in the Sai Satcharitra, reveal the secrets of the Supreme Spirit and Divine Delight and guide us live without getting touched by illusion, live like a dew-drop on a lotus leaf-though we live in the world of dualities of joy and sorrow, we learn to rise above them in the light of the life of Sadguru Sainath.

If You seek My Advice and Help, it Shall be Given to you at Once

Sri Sai Baba is not just a great soul but a Path-Finder to His trust-reposing devotees. One may wonder how to get help and advice from Baba when He is physically not present. Time and again Baba practically proved that there exists no difference between Him and His photograph. He is present very nearer to His devotees and they are enveloped in His Love.

If we can feel Sai in the Temple of our Soul, we can hear Baba's Silent Voice of Wisdom and Help. Did not Baba assured us! "I am ever ready to lend My Helping Hand and advice the moment you ask Me". The methods to seek help from Baba are chanting Baba's Name, reading of Sai Satcharitra daily and constantly meditating on His Form.

If we keep the burden of our troubles, doubts, needs on Baba and worship Him in any one of the above modes, a good advice is heard in a helpful manner from our inner self. "Help" too is received. There is nothing like "I or mine".

If we seek shelter in Sai, thinking "remove the illusion and bear the burden", He would come in one or other form and directs us to the right path.

How noble are the words "immediately" which would mean "willing" in that very moment! That Baba is ever ready to help us means, that He would offer instant help and advice to us when we cry for Baba's Grace.
