”I am Forever Don’t worry “ Baba said to Vaman Rao
Sai Baba is helper of His devotees; nothing could be compared to Him. Bhakti of Sai Baba cannot be ranked on any scale in the world. Maya can’t tease any Bhakta of Sai Baba, in whose heart Sai Baba resides. A person can only understand the secrets of Sai Baba, on whom Sai Baba showers His mercy. The road for attaining Sai Baba is very easy, but many unfortunate people don’t accept the road.
On one occasion, when in Shirdi, Vamanrao commenced reading Mayavati literature written by Vivekananda. Meanwhile he came to a topic named Hard Routes of Knowledgeable persons. As the topic was difficult to understand, he found it boring in places. So in between his reading, he visited the Dwarkamai, took darshan of Sai Baba and went away. He was not all bothered whether Sai Baba was present in Dwarkamai or not. He could easily understand the meaning of the topic, when he started reading after his round to Dwarkamai.
One day Sai Baba said to him, “See this farm. There is no one to look after the farm, so all the cattle will eat away the crops”. This means whatever Punya is done by you must be protected by Vrat (Fast), Niyam (Rule) and Sanyam (Patience); otherwise every thing will be washed out.
On one night, when Vamanrao sat with Sai Baba in Dwarkamai, Sai Baba placed His loving hand on Vamanrao’s head and transferred Saktipaat Yog to him. He spoke in sweet words; Blessings of Lord Shankar are with you. In this way Sai Baba gifted him some divine powers.
Many such incidents were the outcome of the relationship which Sai Baba and Vamanrao shared.
I am confused which ones to include and which to omit. I will narrate one more incident and keep the rest for some other time.
One day when Vamanrao sat worshipping Sai Baba, he thought in his mind, today Sai Baba is among us and we are doing His Seva Pooja by Chandan, Flowers, Incense Sticks, massaging his body, but when This Body is not be present, then whom shall we worship? Sai Baba is omnipotent and He immediately came to know the thoughts taking place in Vamanrao’s mind. In His answer Sai Baba said, Oh! Do you think that This Body is only Sai Baba? I am Forever. Don’t worry if I am not on this earth. Why do you think like that?
