GURUVAAR PRARTHNA

 

Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, our body needs food just as our mind needs peace. Our body needs a meal while our mind needs fullfilment, A meal fills our stomach while our mind enriches with thoughts, the food will give us temporary satisfaction to the body while our mind needs permanent satisfaction, our food gives us energy while our mind gives us inspiration to achieve. Our food will increase our weight while our mind increases our creativity. All above mind’s expressions are achievable if You stay in our mind and bless us. Please bless us to explore our mind’s potential. On this holy day we start our prayers by reading your divine guidance from Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.

 

 

Once a great devotee, while somebody was talking of another person, was prejudiced and got deeply involved in criticising.

The virtues were overlooked; and only the criticism was recounted on all sides. The actual story was lost sight of and this became a reviling session.

If at all there is a reason (for disagreement), or if someone behaves abominably, then one should frankly and sweetly try to correct him, and should pity him.

Never belittle anybody. This is known to everyone. But such a nature cannot be suppressed. It cannot remain under control.

From within it rises, gradually, till it is blurted out of the mouth. When the lips open, happiness and contentment are pushed out.

There is none else better than a critic, in the three worlds. He can help a person. Criticism does good to a person and a critic thus obliges a person.

Some people remove dirt with the help of the soap-nut; some use products like soap; some do it with clean and pure water; but a critic does so with his tongue.

In a way, they bear the deterioration of their own character for the sake of others, to do good to them. Therefore, their deeds are, really speaking, indescribably benedictory. Surely, a critic should be highly respected.

At every step, he points out the hazards. He lets a person know his shortcomings under the pretext of criticising, thus helping him to avoid future calamities and obliging everyone. How much more could I praise him?

Many people have praised them. Even saints and sages have talked about their greatness. I bow down to that band of critics.

 

 

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.
