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."
