Guruvaar Prarthna

 

Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, please give us a ladder of faith for each one of us to climb and reach the holy height where shines and shines the white light of Eternity. This is a ladder of our ultimate hope to reach You and rest at Your Lotus Feet forever. Until we reach our destination, put us under the powerful spiritual vibrations, so that no harm dares to touch us. On this holy day we start our prayers by reading your divine guidance in Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.

 

For the sake of Brahman, the five pranas, the five senses of action and perception, ego, intellect and mind have to be surrendered.

The path of knowledge of Brahman is difficult. It is not easy to follow for all and sundry. When the time is ripe, it appears before that fortunate person, all of a sudden.

That person who is detached from all worldly attachments upto the stage of attaining the feet of Brahmadev, he alone is qualified for the knowledge of Brahman. He has no attachment for anything else.

Even if someone were to impart the knowledge of Brahman to one without the least bit of detachment, would he be successful?

The knowledge of Brahman can be attained flawlessly by the highest category of aspirants but mediocre persons are always tradition bound and must proceed stage by stage.

The former ones have a spiritual flight, like the path of a bird; the latter follow the steps of tradition, according to the Shastras. But for the incapable person, the whole effort about Brahman is useless.

Without that self-control and discrimination, there is no other sure means of achieving Brahman. Though this is the truth told by the Vedas, can it be possible for everyone to practise?

It is only through diligence and practice, when even your bones seem ready to disintegrate, that the Guru’s grace descends and enlightenment dawns slowly.

 

I bow down to Sree Ganesh

I bow down to Sree Saraswati

I bow down to the Guru

I bow down to the Family Deity

I bow down to Sree Sita-Ramachandra

I bow down to Sree Sadguru Sainath.

 

Sarveshaam Svaastir Bhavatu

Sarveshaam Shaantir Bhavatu

Sarveshaam Poornam Bhavatu

Sarveshaam Mangalam Bhavatu

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanteeh
