GURUVAAR PRARTHNA

 

Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, faith is seeing with the eyes of the heart. We, the Sai devotees of faith know that whoso surrenders himself to Sai is always taken care of. Your works are ever the works of mercy, Your ways are most mysterious, and those that turns to You never lack anything. On this holy day we start our prayers by reading your divine guidance in Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.

 

Parabrahma is without any special attributes, therefore it is difficult to realise. Thus it is explained with the help of examples. This is the only way that learned people follow for its attainment.

The experts in the Vedas are aware that the soul is mysterious and omnipresent. But how can it be proved and experienced?

The primary requirement is purity of mind. Next, penetrating and sharp intelligence is necessary. This leads to a threefold purification – corporal, vocal and mental. And, in that state, overflowing with mercy, He Himself manifests.

The Atman is eternal and immutable. Sorrow is absent from the life of the self-realised person, for that person is patient, wise and free forever from the bonds of the material world.

A skillful, dialectical approach is of no avail. Mere understanding and study of the Vedas, Shrutis and the books and their analysis is of no use.

The Atman is eternal and immutable. The body is perishable and malleable. Knowing this, he who works for selfimprovement will be conscious of what is right and wrong conduct.

A self-realised person is always fearless, the only unique one, who has obliterated the two-fold nature of the world and successfully destroys miseries.

Though realisation of Atman is very difficult and cannot be understood by kirtans and discourses, and only intelligence can do nothing, but it is possible to understand by special means.

One who is desireless in every walk of life and whose only goal is self-realisation, such a person who steadily hankers after the Atman, he alone can get the great benefit.

One who has unwavering belief in “I AM THAT ” and after hearing it, he makes it his one and only aim to experience it, is favoured by the Atman.

 

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 Poornam Bhavatu

Sarveshaam Mangalam Bhavatu

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanteeh
