GURUVAAR PRARTHNA

 

Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, there are many unfinished tasks that we had started off enthusiastically. Please make sure we don’t fail and lapse in our effort for any task on hand. Baba, don’t allow boredom or any distraction to shun us off in a different direction altogether. Please guide us to prioritize and then invest our effort accordingly. Strengthen our resolve to finish what we got up for and enjoy the experience of satisfaction and goodness. On this holy day we start our prayers by reading your divine guidance in Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.

 

 

One who can concentrate and whose mind is composed only can reach the supreme state of salvation and all others tire out on the way.

 

He will not be satisfied whose mind is restless. He has no entry in the realm of the supreme state of salvation and thus cannot avoid the cycle of birth and death.

 

Such is that supreme state but when can one find it? When all the doubts of the mind are cleared, it then appears before you on its own.

 

Here logic, deductions, popular talk or discussions are of no avail. Only by God’s grace you can attain it. All other sciences of learning are futile.

 

This is the marvel in this case – that innocent belief succeeds in knowing it, while logical skills are futile and the logical mind is confused.

 

Those who acquire the perfect wisdom are of a different type, whose thinking and intelligence are of a different kind. Please understand that such a person who has the real knowledge is very different and he is the best person to impart knowledge.

 

How the precious body is wasted! Wealth and pleasures are like the afternoon shadows, short-lived. Understand that this is a powerful illusion created by God and surrender at the feet of the Saints.

 

Saints are like the vessel on the oceans of the world. You be one of the passengers. Who else is capable of taking you across to the yonder shore?

 

Self-control and detachment, if combined together, will take him across the worldly ocean without difficulty, even though he may be a dullard like a millstone.

 

 

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

 

-(from Shri Sai Samartha Satchrita, Chapter 17, Ovi 34 – 42)
