Sai Baba`s Udi

As described in Chapter XXXIII of Shri Sai Satcharita, Sai Baba took dakshina and out of the amount thus collected; he spent on charity and purchased fuel. This fuel he put in the dhuni: the sacred fire, which he kept ever burning. The ash from this fire was called Udi, and it was distributed to the devotees at the time of their departure from his holy place in Shirdi.
Baba taught by this Udi that all the visible phenomena in the universe are as transient as the ash. Our bodies composed of matter of the five elements, will fall down after all their enjoyments are over and be reduced to ashes. Baba also taught by the Udi that the Brahma is the only reality and the universe is ephemeral; and no one in this world, he be a son, father or wife is really ours. We come here to this world alone and we have to go from here alone.
It had been found that the Udi cured many physical and mental maladies but Baba wanted to repeat into the devotee`s ears the principles of discrimination between the unreal and the real. He taught non-attachment for the unreal by his Udi and dakshina. Besides the spiritual implication of Udi, it had also its material significance. It conferred health, prosperity, freedom from anxiety and many other worldly gains.
Following the life time activities and philosophy of Sai Baba; dhuni: the sacred fire is kept ever burning in Sai Dham, Mandir and Ashrams.By using ash from this sacred fire called Udi; devotees experience physical, mental and spiritual benefit.

    Bibhuti is the Oriya terminology for Udi.

  2. I fully agree with you in spiritual requirements of human beings.

    Anxious minds find lot of peace in supernatural covers from the God.

    Blessings of God are always beneficial to the people, scientifically too.

    Supernatural faith can only come from supernatural power.

    God or realisation of God in our mind is one, only visaulisations differ with different people.

    Blessings too may come in any form, Bibhuti or anything does not matter.

    God helps them who help themselves.

    Respected Sir,
    I am regularly reading the valuable message posted by you.

    Person having no spiritual ideology commits thousands of mistakes in his life; thus the life becomes incomplete.So we should have some spiritual ideology to lessen these mistakes.

    Sir, kindly have blessings with us; & expect more topics on spirituality from time to time from you.

    ‘Udi’, the wonderful medicine for all the maladies:

    “Paramam Pavithram Baba Vibhuthim,
    Paramam Vichithram Leela Vibhuthim,
    Paramaartha Ishtartha Moksha Pradhaatham,
    Baba Vibhuthim Idhamaashrayaami,
    Sai Vibhuthim Idhamaashrayaami”.

    Respected Sir,

    The excellent topic “Sai Baba`s Udi” teaches me a lot, because its core meaning signifies the process of one`s transformation to realized soul. Here the devotee casts out his ego totally and surrenders to Baba ( Divine ) wholeheartedly. That was possible only by divine exchange of Dakshina (wealth of devotee) and Udi(sacred ash of Baba), which was every day affairs of Baba`s miracle during his physical form. Hence every devotee was detached from his belongings even from own body and mind and transcended and divined with Udi and became ecstatic with esoteric voice,”Allah Sabka Malik Hai”. He, the Almighty is absolute and we & our belongings are nothing, sooner or later turn into ashes. Thus Baba`s Udi acts as a switch point. Now even to-day we have observed Udi pasted round over the Ajna, Visuddha, and Anahata chakras of all devotees act as charger. But it will remain enigma to seekers and searchers ( Science) where as there is no iota of doubt as divine medicine to believers and mergers ( Spirituality ).

    Thanking You
    Your Divine Brother
