puts his feet on Shirdi soil, his sufferings would
come to an end.
It seems that through this first
line, Shirdi Sai Baba has put His Holy Hands on His
devotees head. Sai Baba has taken responsibility to
take care of His devotee who visits Shirdi, takes
darshan of Samadhi and surrenders completely to Him.
Sai Baba's soul is still present in Shirdi and so
He has given such promise.
This promise has been fulfilled by Sai Baba and in
turned increased devotees' faith.
||The wretched and miserable would
rise into plenty of joy and happiness, as soon as they
climb steps of my samadhi.
In this Kaliyug, all of us are
suffering from one problem or another. Some suffer
mentally, some physically, some economically, some
socially... and there is no end of sufferings. In
such condition only encouraging words from our close
ones or money alone is not enough. Only Sadguru Sai
can only help in time of distress.
Whosoever takes darshan of Sai Baba's Samadhi gets
free from such distress. Thats the reason why so many
devotees are flocking to Shirdi now a days. This is
the proof of truthfulness of Sai Baba's words.
||I shall be ever active and vigorous
even after leaving this earthly body.
Though Sai Baba is not with us
in bodily form, but I dont think we miss His presence.
Every now and then He comes running to His devotees
to take them out of difficulties. I am reminded of
a popular bhajan "Thoda Dhyaan Laga,
Sai Daude Daude Ayenge, Thoda Dhyan Laga..."
When He was in bodily form He had promised His devotees
to be with them for ever and He has been fulfilling
this promise even today.
||My tomb shall bless and speak to
the needs of my devotees.
The Samadhi of Sai Baba is not
an ordinary person's samadhi. It is a Divine Human
Being's Living Samadhi. The Divine Soul of Sai Baba
is always present near Samadhi. "My tomb will
speak with you all" were the words of Sai Baba.
If any devotee keeping these words in mind medidate
on the 'Formless' form of Sai Baba, these words turn
out to be true.
It is very natural that in tough times only we humans
remember God, but if we remember our Sai Baba in grief
and happiness, He is with us always.
||I shall be active and vigorous
even from the tomb.
||There is very deep
meaning in this fifth promise given by Sai Baba. The
soul is indestructible. We replace old clothes with
new ones. Similary a soul sacrifies one body and enters
into another. So it is very well understood that even
if Sai Baba has left His mortal coil, His soul is still
Sai Baba has no end and He is watching our good and
bad deeds each moment. Thus such thought will not allow
us to do any bad deed and we all ever conscious to attain
||My mortal remains would speak from
It has never happened that a devotee
faced disappointment who have surrendered himself
completely to Sai Baba. He never avoids anyone who
come to His refuge. There were hidden blessings even
in His scoldings. Even devotees took those scoldings
as blessings. It can be compared to beatings from
a teacher for progress of his student. Though these
beatings seem harsh to the student, but they prove
to be fruitful when he does well in studies.
This, even, improves child's mental ability.
Leelas of Baba were much difficult to understand.
Every action of His conveyed deep meaning which we
ignorant humans failed to understand. Still whosoever
surrender completely to Him received His divine blessings
in one way or the other.
||I am ever living to help and guide
all who come to me, who surrender to me and who seek
refuge in me.
The more intense the love of devotee
for Sai Baba, the more easily he can attain Him. There
are many such instances where Sai Baba gave darshan
to His devotess of those Gods whom they worshipped
This promise says that we can worship Sai Baba thinking
Him to be form of any God and He is there to bless
us as per our devotion.
||If you look to me, I look to you.
||Sai Baba Himself takes
the responsibilities of devotees who has complete faith
in Him. He has taken out many devotees from worldly
sackles. He has given eyes to blind person, limbs to
lame person and peace of mind to disturbed person by
His mere darshan. He Himself suffered many a times for
His devotee's welfare.
So why to fear when He is with us day and night. We
only have to look at Him and we can find Him already
looking at ourselves lovingly and ready to help with
His helping hands.
||If you cast your burden on me,
I shall surely bear it.
Sai Baba had such love for His
devotee which a father has for his son. Whosover goes
for darshan of Sai Baba with pure heart surely gets
what he wants. He is always ready with helping hands
for His devotees. He can be rightly called
He wants us to cast our burden of good and bad deeds
on Him, so that the sense of doership vanishes and
we starting walking on that path from where we can
||If you seek my advice and help,
it shall be given to you at once.
The devotee who has surrendered
everything in the Lotus Feet of Shri Sai becomes one
with Him in all respects. Sai Baba encouraged reading
of spiritual books to take His devotees to the path
of Sadgati who showed immense love towards Sai Baba.
It was his prime duty to create interest for spiritual
matters in the minds of His devotees. To go ahead
in spirituality, one must be ever curious to seek
the advice and help of Guru and where can we find
more capable, loving and caring other than our beloved
||There shall be no want in the house
of my devotees.
should try to complete his responsibility after getting
birth of a human being. They must surrender themselves
completely to Sadguru and in turn make way to attain
Almighty. Saints are the form of God. They have quality
to transform Nar (human being) into Narayan (God).
Thus whosoever soughts refuge of Sai Baba, surenders
himself to Him are qualified to be called 'Rich' in
true sense. Then the responsibility of looking after
materialistic matters of that devotee is on the shoulders
of Sai Baba.
