Sadguru Sai Baba

Sadguru Sai Baba

Shri   Satchidananda   Sadguru   Sainath   Maharaj Ki Jaya.

It is described in Chapter X of Shri Sai Satcharita that “There are two kinds of Gurus (1) Niyat (appointed or fixed ) and (2) Aniyat (unappointed or general ).The latter by their advice develop the good qualities in us, purify our hearts and set us on the path of salvation;  but contact with the former dispels our sense of dualities (sense of difference) and establishes us in unity by making us realize ‘Thou art that’.There are various Gurus imparting to us various  kinds of worldly  knowledge ;but he,who fixes us in our nature (Self) and carries us beyond the ocean of worldly existence, is the Sadguru. Sai Baba was such a Sadguru.”

It is further described that “Sai Baba never thought of making the least show of His worth (piety). He had no Body-consciousness but He had great love for His disciples. If anybody went to take His darshan, He, without being asked, would give every detail of his past, present and future. He saw Divinity in all beings. Friends and foes were alike to Him. Disinterested and balanced, He obliged the evil-doers as well as the pious. He was the same in prosperity and adversity. No doubt ever touched Him. Though, He acted through the body He was, not in the least, attached to His body or house. Though, He looked embodied, He was really unembodied, i.e., free from gross existence.”

  2. Dear Panda Sir,

    It’s a great post describing the moto of the Sadguru or a True Guru.

    As we know that, one of the most important message of Sai Baba is ‘Tyag Sharir Chala Jaunga Bhakton Hetu Dauda Aunga’, which depicts His non-belonging to the body. He made us to feel that He is everywhere.

    As I am browsing the site through my android phone; I could not be able to type more, so I beg your pardon.But after reading this post, I felt that this post must be commented forthwith.

    Om Sai Ram.

  3. Very heart touchable article you wrote for the devotees…!

    The primary definition of “Guru” is “Father & Mother”. They are the foundation of someone to stand, walk, talk, move, devote, love, cry, laugh and to know the aptitude of peace or revenge and to feel the presence of own-self in the environment and no one can break this principle. Who says the duty ends of Father & Mother after producing Child? Who says Guru is greater than Father & Mother? Who denies to believe that Father & Mother are not our Guru & Guru-Maata of our foundation?No one can…! Because what we learn from them is reflecting with life long achievements.

    Besides all of these, there are naturally hands behind all to control and regulate all of us; and that instruction comes to all father, mother & child to act within the environment and that’s the Super Natural Power and we can use the designation of “Sadguru” instead of Super Natural Power, and we believe that is Sri Sai Naath…!

  4. Well written and educative article.

    Guru teaches us the right path.

    Depending upon individual age, circumstances and needs, the teaching and required direction may vary.

    Ultimately Guru is able to lit the candle in the disciple, so that he can himself generate knowledge and guide himself and others in right direction.

    The depth of knowledge varies according to individual aptitude, calibre and capacity of the disciples.

    All, (Guru, God and parents ) have specific roles in life of individual.

    Habits, inclination and capabilities of some persons may be unique and charismatic to the extent that He rises to the calibre of God.

  5. Pradip Kumar Bhoi says:

    OM Sai Ram
    Dear Sir,
    I read the article “Sadguru Sai Baba” , which is a knowledgeable article.
    Thanks a lot Sir.

  6. Prakash Padhan says:

    From this article I could know more about Sadguru Sai Baba.

    There are many Gurus,but Sai Baba is SADGURU.
    He has all characters of “Sthitapragnya”(last 18 slokas of 2nd chapter of Srimad Bhagbad Gita).

    We should follow his path for our better development.

    Jai Sadguru Sainath Ki Jai.

  7. Susanta Kumar Panigrahi says:

    Obviously, the ultimate spiritual knowledge can be attained under the guidance of Sadguru.Only Guru bears the responsibility of the disciple who surrenders to him.

    Guru gives the real inspiration that no books can provide.He opens our eyes blinded by ignorance and darkness and guides us to show the real path.

    Jai Sai Ram

  8. Chandra Kumar Panda says:

    Sir,
    Namaskar.

    The very beginning of the caption “Satchidananda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jaya” implies the succumb before the Guru &God.

    Indeed man is born in the world being a bondage in and around till the death with certain inborn quality inherited.But it is the world atmosphere, where he is brought up; really turns his fore-feet that where he is going & what for going to.

    In this context the role of Guru is very much significant who plays a pivotal role in revolving the wheel of his future feet.And in this worldly life every one comes under the guardianship of a Guru may it be in the form of Parents,Teacher,Elders in one hand and the Divine Guru on the other side of life.

    The role of Guru is commendable for ages together.

  9. Gyanaprakash Kar says:

    Respected Sir,
    Namaskar.

    The article published by you with regard to “Guru & Sisya” parampara is definitely praise worthy.

    It is the Guru who really plays a great role in moulding the life of mankind.The mankind be it in any stage from birth comes under the guidance of a Guru be it Sadguru or appointed Guru.

    As such the article is much valuable to us & give satisfaction and changes the attitude towards behaviour.

  10. Ashirbad Purohit says:

    Pranam Mamu.

    Really its a heart penetrating article.

    Sai Baba is t real guru t world has ever had; ‘cuz t way he guides his devotees through his enoromous power is a miracle.He purifies our mind & backs us when darkness sorrounding us.

    Jai Sai Ram.

  11. V.Nageswara Rao says:

    Dear Sir,

    Juhar.

    The Article Sadguru Sai Baba is really Praise Worthy.

    I have read few articles about Shirdi Sai Baba and I also got an opportunity of Sai Darshan at Shirdi; but before reading this article I had specific knowledge about Sadguru i.e. the real Trust Worthy teacher. After reading this article I got much clarity about Sadguru i.e. who really shows a path way of life towards satmarga, satkarma, satchinta; and every thing is true and completely trust and nothing false or lies.Shirdi Sainath is the real Sadguru for all of us, for which he won the hearts of millions of people in this world.

    Mother and Father are the prime teachers-Guru for any individual and afterwards come the Teachers, Lecturers and Professors who teach many things and guide for the betterment of the students in many ways.

    After reading this article I recalled my childhood and younger days and the teachers who guided me. I am much very much greatful and thankful to all of them for their guidance and support to learn and practice good, trust towards leading healthy life not just for self or family but also mostly for community.

    Sir, in this occasion I can’t forget to remember you about the advices, guidance and support I received from you many times during my Service in LEPRA at Bargarh.
    You are also the one of the Sadgurus in my life for which you are eligible to get a lot of thanks.I hope you are and you can always act as Sadguru for many through article writing on Yoga and Spirituality.

    With Much Regards,

    Nageswar

  12. Guru Purnima celebration was organised by Sri Sadguru Sainath Seva Samithi at Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Anand Ashram BTM Lay out Bangalore on July 15, 2011.

    I deposited my Guru Dakshina prior to Darshan of Sadguru Sai Baba. Then I had Darshan of Sai and attended Madhyan Aarthi. It was followed by Mahaprasada and Annadhan programme.

    I also attended Palanquin procession and Bhajan sandhya.

    It was a great spiritual bliss on my part as a Shirdi Sai devotee.

  13. Time spent in Bhakti is time spent in eternal peace.

  14. V. Nageswar Rao says:

    Dear Sir,
    Jai Sainath.

    You are lucky enough to spend your valuable time on the day of Guru Purnima at Sai Temple,but I hadn’t got that chance as there was no Shirdi Sai Temple at Jasidhi of Jharkhand,when I was on a family tour and visited Baidyanathdham at Deogarh of Jharkhand (One of the Jyotirlingas among Dwadash Jyotirlingas of our Country).

    However I prayed Sadguru Sainath with mind and soul with my family.

    With Regards,

    Nageswar

  15. Prakash Padhan says:

    Saint Kabir says-“Guru Govind dono khade hai,kakelagu pae…..”.
    Both Guru and God are in front of me,to whom I shall pray? I must pray to GURU first because it is GURU who shows path to me to attain GOD.

    Guru bramha, Guru bishnu, Guru reva maheshwara, Guru sakshat param bramha, tasmeshree gurave namah.

  16. Santhosh says:

    Hey my dear Sai Baba,listen to me carefully -due to the merits of my good deeds in the past births, I’ve got such a great oppotunity to serve your feet in this birth, please Baba never leave me, I may have done many mistakes in my life till now, but I’m ignorant of those, after all I ‘m a human being. Please take care of me and my family and the fellow beings in my surroundings, please keep me at your feet; not only in this birth, but in all the births in the future, if I get an oppotunity to serve your feet, then I don’t need Moksha at all, for me moksha is serving your feet.

  18. Guru Purnima was celebrated at Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Anand Ashram BTM Lay out Bangalore organised by Sri Sadguru Sainath Seva Samithi on July 3, 2012.

    I had Darshan of Sadguru Sai Baba and deposited my Guru Dakshina. Then I attended Madhyan Aarthi. It was followed by Mahaprasada and Annadhana.I also attended Palanquin procession of Shri Sai Baba held in the afternoon with great pomp and ceremony.

  19. Today there was centenary celebration of installation of Shri Sai Baba holy padukas in Shirdi at Shri Shirdi Sai Baba Anand Ashram BTM Layout Bangalore.

    As described in Chapter V of Shri Sai Satcharita, this was the day i.e. Shravan Pournima in 1912 on which holy padukas touched by Sai Baba, saying that, these are the Feet of the Lord were installed in Shirdi at foot of the Neem tree with the inscription:

    “Sada Nimbavrikshasya mooladhiwasaat,
    Sudhastravinam tiktamapiapriyam tam,
    Tarum Kalpavrikshadhikam sadhayantam,
    Namameeshwaram Sadgurum Sai Natham”.

  20. I have the pleasure to inform the readers and viewers that the article captioned as ‘Sadguru Sainath’ authored by me has been published in Shri Sai Sumiran Times New Delhi; internationally circulated printed monthly magazine both in Hindi and English medium on Shirdi Sai; in its Year No.7 Month No.11 August 2012 issue in English Section. The same article captioned as ‘Sadguru Sai Baba’ was published on February 13, 2011 in Yoga and Spirituality.

  21. Dr.Binod Bihari Naik says:

    Respected Sir,

    Akhanda Sai Nama Japa in my interpretation is a nice programme to energize the body & mind, and to jump straight to ecstatic stage with little involvement of intellect & no rules of ego. Akhanda Sai Nama Japa means incessant voicing of Sai Ram individually in own worship room or by group in temple. It is one type amongst nine paths of devotion for achievement of salvation in short period. Here body & mind are reined easily and directly by soul & God Himself is engulfed in devotee’s heart, where intellect & ego remains as silent observer as seen in case of Bhīma the maharathi during Bastra-harana of Droupadi by Kourava as he was quite aware that he was helpless to prevent pulling off dress of Droupadi the prestigious celestial woman of Pandava by the Kourava. Here imagine & see how it is easiest way to give up wordily bondage & obtain best medium for self happiness. More ever a person from toes to head of any age with no knowledge even hustles & bustles of town makes possible to carry out the procedure in addition to his daily pursuits . Hence I view Akhanda Sai Nama Japa is much superior to Ashtanga Yoga of Patanjali and meditative Yoga of Buddha & Jain for emancipation of life in Kali Yuga. Because Sai Baba is Sadguru & was incarnated for correction of deviated human beings. He was visibly & now is invisibly on the way to solve all the problems of innumerable devotees. So my inference for earnest request, rather at least appeal all to reap the benefit of self-realization by surrendering themselves with the process of Akhanda Sai Nama Japa.

    If above process of realization is not fit to any modern one, then he should at least be aware of four words like 1.Command 2.Request 3.Prayer 4.Devotion .Because:
    1. By Command— One makes body active & healthy.
    2. By Request—– He makes mind energetic & cool.
    3. By Prayer——-One makes intellect illumine & subtle and subdues ego.
    4. By Devotion —One binds supreme soul on his own heart & behave alike supreme soul called Sadguru. This is the effect of Akhanda Sai Nama Japa of any Guru that is the power of sound wave working in between Prakriti (nature) &Purusha(supreme soul i.e.God).

    Thanking You.
    Your Divine Brother

    Sadguru Sai Baba is Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Omniscient. Basing on this spiritual connotation, on the occasion of Guru Purnima celebrations Sai Baba had revealed in the forms of Fakir decorated as Rajadhiraj Yogiraja, lighting the Dhuni (sacred fire), giving prabachana (discourse), cooking food for Annadhan and watering the plants in Garden.

    I deposited my Guru Dakshina, attended Madhyana (noon) Aarthi and had Darshan of Sadguru Sai Baba. It was followed by Mahaprasada and Annadhana. I also attended Palanquin procession of Shri Sai Baba held in the afternoon. I also attended Dhoop (evening) Arathi.
