GURUVAAR  PRARTHNA

 

Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, You created and endowed us with the ability to to take off from failures, limitations, nightmares to success, high dreams, fulfillment and greatness. But sadly, many of us continue to revolve around with full of regrets, victim mentality, wrong choices, excuses, depression. Despite our sincere efforts to remodel our life through prayers and meditations, we could not achieve any success. Baba, we surrender to Your Lotus Feet and begging You for Your Mercy to get rid of all odds we are facing until this moment. On this holy day we start our prayers by reading your divine guidance in Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.

 

I am God. I am the Controller. When such ego takes hold of Brahmadev, he tends to forget his Real Self as the Supreme Spirit, then the universe is created.

‘I am that Brahman’. When this is realised, then he who has realised it surrenders to the Supreme Self; and, for him, the illusion of the existence of the universe disappears. This is proclaimed by the Shrutis.

When there is the true knowledge of the Self, that person’s entire nature becomes one with Brahman. At such a stage, the whole universe burns down in the fire of Brahman and the world turns into ashes.

When the illusion is removed, similar is the state of mind of the human beings. The rope, the ray of the sun and the mother of pearl shell – the illusion that they are different is removed immediately.

The true knowledge of the mother of pearl is the same as the knowledge of the silver and vice versa. At the time of the end of this illusion, the belief about silver is removed and the pure form of mother of pearl and the knowledge of it appears before the mind.

This is all due to reciprocal attraction between the viewer and the things viewed. Light the lamp of knowledge and wash away the impurities of ignorance. This will annihilate illusions.

If the bondage of birth and death had not been there, why would there be pursuit of ‘moksha’? Who would have bothered about the philosophy of the Vedas and also this discourse.

I am bound. I want to be free. One who firmly thinks so is the only person who deserves that knowledge. Neither the scholar nor the very ignorant person is fit for it.

But when you are never bound why talk of freedom? This is the truth. Everybody knows that being bound and freedom are due to the balance of the ‘gunas’ (sattva, raja and tama).

In the absence of duality, who will bind whom? Who will release whom? No one is bound and no one is free, when duality and oneness are not there.

Does the sun create day and night? No. It is the delusion of the viewer. The sun is not involved.

I am the doer. I am the enjoyer. When a person has this pride, he experiences heaven and hell – happiness and miseries – and attachment to sensory pleasures goes on

increasing.

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.
