Portrait of a Devotee and God as a MAN

A new generation of devotees assemble and celebrates Shiva-Shakti impulses of God as a Man. I think of my generation to be extremely fortunate to have shared the world stage with Shri Sathya SAI Baba.

This platform gives me an opportunity to express my sentiment freely about GOD. This is done in an environment of IPAD2, E-mail and Global Warming. Economic collapse in Europe and Bollywoods production of mediocre movies.

The Sathya SAI’S theology of DHARMA was canvassed on Indian Fabric composing Avataric history. Bhagwan’s declaration of Avataric Standing was confirmed by the Connoisseurs of Tapasya and ENLIGHTENMENT.

Bhagwan RAMANA MAHARISHI of the South.
Devaraha BABA of the North
Swami Shri Yukteshwar Foundation in the East associated with Maha-Avatar BABAJI
Swami SAMARTHA foundation in the West.

They reinforce our sensibilities paving the way for the next generation of spirituality and righteous living. Without guidelines it is as good as the blind leading the blind.

In Sathya SAI I did not see a Crusader but an Angelic artist who sketches the TRUTH the Painter of Supreme LOVE ! The pathway to recognise our higher CONSCIOUSNESS.

Sathya Sai’s spirited work is a fascinating world of images, opens up a wide variety of adventure and rekindles the history of Sanathan DHARMA.

The previous Avatars must be complimented for their marvellous works inspires man and woman many thousands of years later. Their stories are elevating written in era of History with such grandeur, without modern toys like Laptops Mobiles and KITKAT chocolates.

I do not see myself as a torch bearing activist in the Sai-ORGANISATION but a devotee translating newer perceptions. Creating an inventive space in an old environment to coexist by the tenets of Bhagwans Philosophy.

Propagating Sai Dharma, creates a rhythm and harmony, producing a texture of sheer energy of the abstract.It is building layer upon layer of cool KARMA !

Bhagwans presence on earth fused the past with the present with modern utility. He patterned a multicoloured leaf of citizens of the world celebrating diversity of the Human race.

Receiving Darshan in the Sai-KULWANT hall in 2007 was as good as being honoured with a Post-Graduation to sprinkle His Love in the world ! I wish I could become a tailor-made devotee, a contemporary of HANUMAN, that would make me feel glamorous.

My observation is I have made poor choices Bhagwan in a complex and perhaps a simple world. My art form as your devotee may not compare with Vincent Van Gogh and perhaps BABA you may be able to read between the lines about my journey.

I am determined to realise independence of the mind in this gift of LIFE !

Sathya SAI JAYANTI celebrations 2011 the first after SAMADHI

The global ascension of the Sai ORGANISATION and its vibrant growth is beginning to take centre stage after Bhagwans Maha-SAMADHI.

The Sai Organisation can become a global leader because of its ethical goals and believes in an Inclusive theology, powered with the conviction of Prema an Seva on DEMAND !

Sai devotees are duty bound to share their spiritual equity and in the process reinforce the teaching of our beloved GURU.

With these characteristics and zeal, devotees are beginning to celebrate, ARCHITECT SAI’S dictum an propelling His DHARMA.

Ushering in the Golden AGE of Sai-LOVE !

Happy BIRTHDAY to the OMNIPRESENCE be my guiding STAR !

Sai Ram SAI RAM Sai Ram -- SAIESHWARA

Thought of the day !

Occasionally I would peek into the distant future and notice the TREE of Puttarpati, covering the earth with its Branches. This shadow gradually introduces a Supreme CALM, in the hyper-active mind of MEN, to reorganise His noble intent for a balance world.

Devotees continue to TRIBUTE your majestic Omni-Presence in the Sai WORLD during 2011. 
I sense a Void in the HEART of the devotees. This defines who YOU were in our midst but it also reflects the elegance of the devotees for cherishing your ideals.

The Sai-SOLDIERS in whom - YOU have awakened your Love !

Aum SAI Ram

Vaishishta GUFA (cave) in the Himalayas has been the sanctuary to Swami PURUSHOTAMANANDA’S Tapasya in the previous century.

The expanded electromagnetic fields of His Sadhna, favours HIM a visit from the Shri Sathya SAI Avatar for His darshan

Sathya SAI the embodiment of Prema SWARUP decorated the great sages GUFA with His majestic presence. The sage yearning for Moksha is triumphant in the cycle of birth and death during Kali YUGA.

Bhagwan gave Swamiji a Japamala of shining Sphatika beads which manifested itself in His hands.Swamiji took Samadhi on Shivratri Night 1961 during the Lingodbhava Muhurthum,at Prashanti NILAYAM.

This kind of moksha is very rare in the midst of a Purna Avatara that descends every four to five thousand years in earthly cycles.

Baba graces us with the nectar of DHARMA and BRAHMA: the attainment of Supreme Consciousness through Righteousness, Selfless Service and Sacrifice.

The GITA says, " Beejam Maam Sarva Bhuuthaanaam. " : Know Me to be the eternal seed power, the cause of germination of all Beings. All beings are born from the seed of Brahman, the Supreme Divinity.

Thought of the day !

Our thoughts would have wondered to every corner of the universe during our life and occasionally proceeded to our soul. In this journey we would display reverence to Bhagwan humility and emulated His teachings.

Our TRUE analysis will be determined in our Devotion and Loyalty to His Omnipresence.

God is FORMLESS

Thought of the day !

Pramukh Swami Maharaj the illuminated Atma-Gyani - crystallise the philosophy of Vedanta - in the colourful tradition of the saints and sages of Bharat Mata.

This magnificent institution of Swami Narayan is celebrated for hosting some of the world’s most eminent academics and entrepreneurs as Bapa’s Seva-Dals.

The nurturing of devotees is influenced by Bapa’s illustrious Tapas and subtle energies of SatguruYogiraj Maharaj that permeates our universe for peace.

Bapas life’s philanthropy and tapasya have decorated the world with some eighth hundred temples. The most beautiful marvels are textured by the devotee’s prema and a display of Bhagwan Swaminaryans exquisite Atma. The architectural design of the temples is illumination for the modern men, prasadam for the Earths Soul and a boon for Mrityu-Loka !

Evolution of the yugas history of civilisations at the appropriate moment the creator of our universe would bestow a divine personality to mother earth. Bapas life’s is a testimony to our world a guiding light for men and a personification of that revolution!

My chance encounter and darshan of Bapa early 1980-ties in Laudium South Africa by the Invitation of Mr.Goonwant Soda.

I was fortunate to have and audience with Him for an hour in conversation.

May you constantly tread in LUV and be chemistry for a blissful world.

Bapa travel to puttarpati to coronate Bhagwan Baba in an auspicious ceremony. Bapa also visited the Sathya SAI Hospital in rajkot.

Bapa Ki -Vijya
Sada-Gurudev Yogiraj Maharaj Ki Jai Jai Kar !


Thought of the day !

Being in the midst of Bapa is to be encompassed in his Teja - listening to His Bhajan is to be resonated and serenaded in His Prema !

The chief characteristic of Sathya Sai is…

"The chief characteristic of Sathya Sai is equanimity, forbearance, Sahana (fortitude). There are many who are engaged in criticism and calumny. Many papers publish all types of writings. Many pamphlets are printed. All kinds of things happen in the world. My reply to all these is a smile. Such criticisms and distortions are the inevitable accomplishments of everything good and great. Only the fruit laden tree is hit by stones thrown by greedy people. No one casts a stone on the tree that bears no fruit!"

Bhagawan’s Discourse on 22nd Nov 1981 in Poornachandra Auditorium, Prashanthi Nilayam.

"I am neither man nor God nor an astral spirit; I am neither a Brahmin (the priestly class), nor a Kshathriya (the warrior class), nor a Vaishya (the business class), nor a Shudra (the working class); The appellations of Brahmachari (celibate) or house-holder, or recluse or monk do not describe Me; I am the Sathya Bodhaka, a Teacher of Truth, as Sathyam (Truth), Shivam (Goodness) and Sundaram (Beauty). Your reality too is Sathyam, Shivam and Sundaram.

Without Truth there cannot be Goodness; without Goodness, what does Beauty avail? The effect of truth on the mind is Goodness; the joy that flows from Goodness is the genuine Beauty that artists love. The three are really one and indivisible. Experience this Truth; this Truth as Goodness and this Goodness as Beauty. That gives the highest Bliss."

- 6th March 1970 in Prashanthi Nilayam.

Thought for the Day !

No enemy can be as insidious as jealousy. When one sees a person more powerful, or more knowledgeable, or with greater reputation or more wealth or more beauty, or even wearing better clothing, one is afflicted with jealousy. You may find it difficult to acknowledge and accept the situation. Your mind may seek means to demean them and lower them in the estimation of people. Such propensities and evil tendencies should never strike root in your minds. You must be careful such that your character is not polluted.
