Sai Meditation

The kind and merciful Sai Baba said many a time the following sweet words in the Masjid: "He who loves Me most, always sees Me. The whole world is desolate to him without Me, he who tells no stories but Mine; he ceaselessly meditates upon Me and always chants to My name. I feel indebted to him who surrenders himself completely to Me, and ever remembers Me. I shall repay his debt by giving him salvation (self-realisation). I am dependent on him, who thinks and hungers after Me and who does not eat anything, without first offering it to Me. He who thus comes to me, becomes one with Me, just as a river gets to the sea and becomes merged (one) with it. So, leaving out pride and egoism and with no trace of them, you should surrender yourself to Me, Who is seated in your heart."
Key to Sai Meditation: Who is this ME?
  Sai Baba expounded many a time Who this Me (or I) is. He said: "You need not go far or anywhere in search of Me. Barring your name and form, there exists in you and as well as in all beings, a sense of Being or Consciousness of Existence. That is Myself. Knowing this, you see Me inside yourself, as well as in all beings. If you practise this, you will realize all-pervasiveness, and thus attain oneness with Me."
 (Repeat these lines while sitting for meditation till you assimilate its meaning and thus merge with the Sai Conciousness).
 Baba  often said "He, who carps and cavils at others, pierces Me in the heart and injures Me; but he that suffers and endures, pleases Me me most."
Hemadpant says "Baba thus pervades, all beings and creatures; and besets them on all sides. He likes nothing but love to all beings. Such nectar, pure auspicious ambrosia always flowed from Baba's lips.  Hemadpant, therefore, concludes - "Those who lovingly sing Baba's fame and those, hear the same with devotion, both become one with  Sai."

Shirdi Sai Baba is the  Dattatreya Guru who uplifted the village of Shirdi as a main pilgrimage centre in India. Shirdi belongs to Ahmednagar District in Maharashtra State. Shirdi Sai Baba attracts everyone who has “nirmala bhudhi and purity in their heart.” Sai Baba says “ Those, who are fortunate and whose demerits have vanished, take to My worship. If you always say “Sai, Sai,” I shall take you over the seven seas; believe in these words, and you will be certainly benefited. I do not need any paraphernalia of worship – either eight fold or sixteen fold. I rest there, where there is full devotion.” 

  So whoever reach to the feet of Shirdi Sai Baba, they are introduced to yoga in their life as Sai yogam. Whether you read Sai Satcharitha (Sai Baba’s Life and Teachings) or listen to Sai bhajan, you are connected to Sai Baba continuously . Do it daily morning and evening and experience the divine support and guidance from Sai Baba of Shirdi. Spread this message and bhajan attached, to everyone and get blessings from Sai Baba.   

He is an incarnation of selflessness, sarvaswa saranagathi (complete surrender), truthfulness, honesty, sincerity. Love, compassion, care and provider of all good things and virutes, who surrender to Him whole heartedly.

So practise virtues like truthfulness, honesty, selflessness and sincerity and honesty and be sustainable to wards utilising all your needs from nature and the people around. Help as many as possible in whatever way possible.

 Dwarakamai: where Shirdi Sai Baba  lived.

Shirdi Sai Baba says “Give water to the thirsty, food to thehungry and clothes to the naked. If any body asks money and you not willing to give, do not give. But do not bark at him like a dog. If anybody insult you or scold you, do not retaliate, but be silent. If you dothis way way, Lord(God) Hari will be pleased.”

Sai Baba’s assuarance to all devotees , as He said to Shama (Madhavrao Deshpande), intimate devotee: "If a man utters My name with love, I shall fulfill all his wishes, increase his devotion. And if he sings earnestly My life and My deeds, him I shall beset in front and back and on all sides. Those devotees, who are attached to Me, heart and soul, will naturally
feel happiness, when they hear these stories. Believe Me that if anybody sings My Leelas, I will give him infinite joy and everlasting contentment. It is My special characteristic to free any person, who surrenders completely to Me, and
who does worship Me faithfully, and who remembers Me, and meditates on Me constantly. How can they be conscious of worldly objects and sensations, who utter My name, who worship Me, who think of My stories and My life and who thus always remember Me? I shall draw out My devotees from the jaws of Death. If My stories are listened to, all the diseases will be got rid of. So, hear My stories with respect; and think and meditate on them, assimilate them. This is
the way of happiness and contentment. The pride and egoism of My devotees will vanish, the mind of the hearers will be set at rest; and if it has wholehearted and complete faith, it will be one with Supreme Consciousness. The simple
remembrance of My name as ‘Sai, Sai’ will do away with sins of speech and hearing".
