BLESS ME OH! MASTER! OF BEING WORTHY OF YOU

DSC00444
Bless me Oh! Master! That I may become worthy of –
a single glimpse of you
a single glance from you
taking your name from my lips
hearing you name always
the sunlight that warms me daily without fail
the moonlight that brings serenity to my disturbed mind
the gentle breeze that calms my frittering thoughts day and night
the rain drops that cool my bruised ego and heart
the beauty of thy creation that surrounds me
the kindness I receive from all the creatures and material things that I am in the midst of
the food that you provide me in abundance of my sustenance
the love of my fellow beings
the love of your different manifestations that appear to the world as your consort, your daughter and your son
being of service to all thy creatures
doing service to all thy creatures

I am but an infinitesimal cog in the wheel of thy creation.
May my presence not be the cause of disturbance in the harmony of your immense creation
Let me be lead by you in all my thoughts
Let me be lead by you in all my actions
Because all that I hear, see, and utter has a bearing on me and my nature.
Such as I am, Oh! Merciful Master! Take me from darkness into light…

SHRAVAN POURNAMI 2012

August 2nd 2012 held intensely memorable moments for all at Nagole.

It was a hundred years ago that Sri Sai Baba’s padukas were installed on the auspicious occassion of Shravan Pornami, Shaka 1834 (1912 A.D.) under the Neem tree at the Gurusthan with due ceremonies conducted by Dada Kelkar and Upasani Maharaj. The following sloka was also inscribed:

“Sada Nimbarvrikshasya mooladhiwasat,
Sudhasravinam tiktamapi-apriyam tam,
Tarum Kalpavrikshadhikam sadhayantam
Namameeshwaram Sadgurum Sai Natham”

Now, a 100 years later, Baba again this time in the form of the sixth Dattatreya incarnation of Sri Alivelu Mangamma Sahita Bharadwaja Maharaj reinstated the significance of the holy padukas in the Dattatreya tradition and made us worship the padukas as a commemoration of the great event on August 15, 1912.

Blessed indeed were those who saw the worship being performed by Ekkirala Dwarakanath Gnyaneshwar in the holy presence of Divyajanani Alivelu Mangamma.
Blessed indeed were those also whose mind always dwells on Sai Master.

Om Samartha Sadguru Sainath Paadukabhyam Namaha
Om Samartha Sadguru Bharadwaja Paadukabhyam Namaha
Om Saguna Paadukabhyam Namaha
Om Nirguna Paadukabhyam Namaha

SUPERMEN!!!

“His (Sai Baba’s) is the religion of tomorrow, if mankind has a future. If it has no future, Sai Baba’s is the only possible way of ensuring it.”
This sentence never fails to capture my attention! The statement is ominous and powerful at the same time, “…..if mankind has a future….”. It is riveting- as though he sees it all, knows it all! The King, The Master!!!
What future is Master referring to? This future of our day to day mundane existence with its drudgery, loneliness, passions, dogmatism, narrow attitudes, religious intolerance, intolerance to our own brethren, bad politics, taxes..… surely not, I hope!
Then what else does future mean? Thankfully, our very merciful Master does not leave us in the dark for long, for towards the end of the very same paragraph, he says, “Devoid of all these (intolerance, dogmatism, narrow proselytizing attitude) evils, all religions are the blue-prints of a future mankind of supermen.” Not to be taken lightly, superman here does not refer to Superman, Batman and others of that credo. It refers to the achievement of the highest potential of man. It is in the same context that he refers to Hazrath Tajuddin Baba as being, “the superman of the future”.
But the relationship between religion, superman and the future of mankind remains unclear unless we realize that the foundation of all religions is the ancient spiritual philosophy which tells us about the essential spiritual unity of all that we see and perceive with and beyond our senses. Such a spiritual experience is genuinely the forte of all the major religions of the world: be they the Sufi saints of Islam, the saints of Christianity, the Boddhisatvas of Buddha or the rishies of Hinduism.
In the words of Sri Aurobindo, “The man who dwells in the higher or divine and now hidden hemisphere of his consciousness, having rent the veil, is the true superman and the last product of that progressive self manifestation of God in world, spirit of matter, which is now called the principle of evolution.”

Jai Sai Master!!!
