GURUVAAR PRARTHNA – 13/04/2017
Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, we are not responsible for the delays but we are certainly accountable for our progress. We may not be responsible for becoming a victim but we are certainly accountable to rising up as a victor. We may not be responsible for being a reject but we are certainly accountable for becoming a success. We may not be responsible for the negative environment around us but we are certainly accountable for maintaining a positive mind-set. We may not be responsible for our pain but we are certainly accountable to learning from it. We may not be responsible for our yesterday but we are certainly accountable for our today and tomorrow. Baba our accountability is certainly based on Your Mercy and Blessings. On this holy day, we start our prayers by reading Your divine guidance from Shri Sai Samartha Satcharitra.
Amir Shakkar lived at the Chavadi for nine months. Just as one climbed the steps into the Chavadi, right in front, he spread out his bedding in the middle of the room.
Rheumatism had totally gripped his body. Seemingly, the antidote was also adverse. But in his heart he had true faith; therefore, everything smoothened out.
Amir was asked to live there for nine months and was prohibited from coming for darshan even in the Masjid.
But that Chavadi which was allotted to him to stay was such a place that without any effort it was possible to have Baba’s darshan.
That too, every day, both in the morning and evening. Besides, on alternate days, at both the times6, he would witness the celebrations at the Chavadi to his heart’s content.
Every day in the morning, when Baba went to beg alms, Baba passed the Chavadi, on his way. It was easily possible for Amir to have darshan when Baba went or returned, without leaving his place.
Also, at sunset, Baba would come in front of the Chavadi, and would pay homage to all the directions bowing his head and moving his index finger.
From there he would turn back and walk upto the corner of the Samadhi building and from here he turned back to the masjid, accompanied by his devotees.
He came to the Chavadi every other day and there was only a curtain between them for name’s sake – actually, a wooden shutter – thus they were able to converse. And both loved to talk.
Puja and arati would take place there only, after which the devotees would disperse for their respective homes; and the two of them would get the opportunity to talk peacefully.
Seemingly it was an imprisonment. But, in reality, he enjoyed Sai’s company fully. Without good fortune no one else could have this rare opportunity.
