Baba's Holi Meal in Hemadpant's House


ॐ सांई राम

Baba's Holi Meal in Hemadpant's House

On Holi festival in 1917, Baba appeared in the dream of Hemadpant at his house in Bandra and told him that he would be coming to his house to participate in the Holi meal. Hemadpant told his wife about the dream and asked her to prepare food for one more person. The festivities of Holi were over. Arrangements were made for serving the meal. They reserved a seat for Baba. All the members of the family sat down for the meal. After offerings were made to God, ghee was served; they were about to start eating, when someone knocked the door. Hemadpant opened the door and found two persons standing there. They handed over to him a photo of Shirdi Sai Baba with a request to keep it safely. They asked him to finish his meals first and then they could discuss the details about the photo later on; they left the place.

Hemadpant was surprised at the arrival of Baba in the form of photo, exactly at meal time. He shed tears of joy. He felt happy that what Baba had told him in the dream had come true in this manner. He immediately put the photo in the place set apart for Baba. All the food items were kept before the photo and only after offering them to Baba, did the others eat.

The same day at the same time Baba told Shama at Shirdi that he had a sumptuous meal at Bandra in Hemadpant's house. Shama could understand Baba's words only after sometime when Hemadpant went to Shirdi. Now let us see how the photo was delivered at Hemadpant's house.

A long time back, a saint by name Abdul Rehman gave a lifesize framed photo of Baba to Ali Mohammed. After sometime, Ali's brother-in-law fell sick. Someone said that if the photos of saints were put in the sea, the illness would subside. So he sent for this manager and asked him to collect all such photos in his house and also in the houses of relatives and put them in the sea. After some days Ali Mohammed came home and was surprised to find that Baba's photo was still there in the wall. He began to think to whom it should be given. As per Baba's order given to him through his thoughts, the photo was handed over to Hemadpant.

Shirdi Ke Sai Baba


ॐ सांई राम
 

Sai Baba of Shirdi (Maha Samadhi on October 15, 1918), also known as Shirdi Ke Sai Baba, was an Indian guru, yogi and fakir who is regarded by his Hindu and Muslim followers as a saint. Some of his Hindu devotees believe that he was an incarnation of Shiva or Dattatreya. Many devotees believe that he was a Sadguru. There are many stories and eyewitness accounts of miracles he performed. He is a well-known figure in many parts of the world, but especially in India, where he is much revered.

The name 'Sai Baba' is a combination of Persian and Indian origin; Sāī (Sa'ih) is the Persian term for "well learned" or "knowledgeable", usually attributed to Islamic ascetics, whereas Baba (honorific) is a word meaning "father; grandfather; old man; sir" used in Indo-Aryan languages. The appellative thus refers to Sai Baba as being a "holy father" or "saintly father". His parentage, birth details, and life before the age of sixteen are obscure, which has led to a variety of speculations and theories attempting to explain Sai Baba's origins. In his life and teachings he tried to reconcile Hinduism and Islam: Sai Baba lived in a mosque which he called Dwarakamayi, practiced Hindu and Muslim rituals, taught using words and figures that drew from both traditions and was buried in a Hindu temple in Shirdi. One of his well known epigrams says of God: "Sabka Malik Ek Hai" ("One God governs all") which traces its root to the Bhagavad-Gita and Islam in general, and Sufism, in particular. He always uttered "Allah Malik" ("God is Master"). He had no love for perishable things, and was always engrossed in self-realization, which was his sole concern.

Sai Baba taught a moral code of love, forgiveness, helping others, charity, contentment, inner peace, devotion to God and guru. His teachings combined elements of Hinduism and Islam and tried to achieve communal harmony between these religions.

Sai Baba remains a very popular saint and is worshipped by people around the world. Debate over his Hindu or Muslim origins continues to take place. He is also revered by several notable Hindu and Sufi religious leaders. Some of his disciples received fame as spiritual figures and saints such as Upasni Maharaj, Meher Baba, Saint Bidkar Maharaj, Saint Gangagir, Saint Jankidas Maharaj and Sati Godavari Mataji.

Reported Miracles

Sai Baba's millions of disciples, followers and devotees believe that he had performed many miracles. Some of them were: bilocation, exorcisms, curing the incurably sick, helping his devotees in need in a miraculous way, reading the minds of others. Numerous inhabitants of Shirdi talked about these miracles. Some of them even wrote about them in books. They talked and wrote about how they (and others) were the witnesses of his unusual Yogic powers: levitation, entering a state of Samādhi at wish, even removing his limbs and sticking them back to his body (Khanda Yoga) or doing the same with his intestines.

According to his followers he appeared to them after his death, in dreams, visions and even in bodily form, whence he often gave them advice. His devotees have many stories and experiences to tell. Many books have been written on these events.

Historical sources

Biographers of Sai Baba (e.g. Govindrao Raghunath Dabholkar, Acharya Ekkirala Bharadwaja, Smriti Srinivas, Antonio Rigopolous) have based their writing on primary sources. One such source is the Shirdi Diary by Ganesh Shrikrishna Khaparde, which describes every day of the author's stay at Shirdi.

Speculation about the unknown episodes of Sai Baba's life are primarily based on his own words.

The most important source about Sai's life is the Shri Sai Satcharita, written in Marathi in 1916 by Govindrao Raghunath Dabholkar, whom Sai Baba nicknamed Hemadpant.

Consisting of 51 chapters, it describes Baba's life, teachings and the various miracles he performed for his devotees. It describes how one should surrender one's egoism at God's feet and trust one's guru to carry one across the ocean of worldly existence. It explains how God is supreme and His devotees should trust Him and love Him with all their heart. It teaches that God is present in all forms - human, animal, insect and plant. Everything on this earth is a form of God and must be treated with love and respect.

The book talks about Baba's lifestyle, and his selfless attitude and love towards his devotees. His love is compared to a mother's love: caring and loving when needed and reprimanding when a mistake is made.

Other important sources about Sai Baba are books by B. V. Narasimhaswamiji such as Sri Sai Baba's Charters and Sayings or Devotee's Experiences of Sai Baba. Sri Sai Baba and His Teachings by Acharya Ekkirala Bharadwaja is an in-depth study of Sai's life routine and activities.

In various religions    :        

Hinduism

During Sai Baba's life, the Hindu saint Anandanath of Yewala declared Sai Baba a spiritual "diamond". Another saint, Gangagir, called him a "jewel". Sri Beedkar Maharaj greatly revered Sai Baba, and in 1873, when he met him he bestowed the title Jagadguru upon him. Sai Baba was also greatly respected by Vasudevananda Saraswati (known as Tembye Swami). Sai of Shirdi was also revered by a group of Shaivic yogis, to which he belonged, known as the Nath-Panchayat.

Other religions

Sai Baba is considered a Pir by some Sufi groups. Meher Baba declared Baba to be a Qutub-e-Irshad - the highest of the five Qutubs, "Master of the Universe". Baba is also worshipped by prominent Zoroastrians such as Nanabhoy Palkhivala and Homi Bhabha, and has been cited as the most popular non-Zoroastrian religious figure attracting the attention of Zoroastrians.

जैसी दृष्टि वैसी सृष्टि

ॐ सांई राम

दृष्टि के बदलते ही सृष्टि बदल जाती है, क्योंकि दृष्टि का परिवर्तन मौलिक परिवर्तन है। अतः दृष्टि को बदलें सृष्टि को नहीं, दृष्टि का परिवर्तन संभव है, सृष्टि का नहीं। दृष्टि को बदला जा सकता है, सृष्टि को नहीं। हाँ, इतना जरूर है कि दृष्टि के परिवर्तन में सृष्टिभी बदल जाती है। इसलिए तो सम्यकदृष्टि की दृष्टि में सभी कुछ सत्य होता है और मिथ्या दृष्टि बुराइयों को देखता है। अच्छाइयाँ और बुराइयाँ हमारी दृष्टि पर आधारित हैं।


दृष्टि दो प्रकार की होती है। एक गुणग्राही और दूसरी छिन्द्रान्वेषी दृष्टि। गुणग्राही व्यक्ति खूबियों को और छिन्द्रान्वेषी खामियों को देखता है। गुणग्राही कोयल को देखता है तो कहता है कि कितना प्यारा बोलती है और छिन्द्रान्वेषी देखता है तो कहता है कि कितनी बदसूरत दिखती है।

 
गुणग्राही मोर को देखता है तो कहता है कि कितना सुंदर है और छिन्द्रान्वेषी देखता है तो कहता है कि कितनी भद्दी आवाज है, कितने रुखे पैर हैं। गुणग्राही गुलाब के पौधे को देखता है तो कहता है कि कैसा अद्भुत सौंदर्य है। कितने सुंदर फूल खिले हैं और छिन्द्रान्वेषी देखता है तो कहता है कि कितने तीखे काँटे हैं। इस पौधे में मात्र दृष्टि का फर्क है।

 
जो गुणों को देखता है वह बुराइयों को नहीं देखता है।

 
कबीर ने बहुत कोशिश की बुरे आदमी को खोजने की। गली-गली, गाँव-गाँव खोजते रहे परंतु उन्हें कोई बुरा आदमी न मिला। मालूम है क्यों? क्योंकि कबीर भले आदमी थे। भले आदमी को बुरा आदमी कैसे मिल सकता है?


कबीर जी ने कहा है
बुरा जो खोजन मैं चला, बुरा न मिलिया कोई,
जो दिल खोजा आपना, मुझसे बुरा न कोय।


कबीर अपने आपको बुरा कह रहे हैं। यह एक अच्छे आदमी का परिचय है, क्योंकि अच्छा आदमी स्वयं को बुरा और दूसरों को अच्छा कह सकता है। बुरे आदमी में यह सामर्थ्य नहीं होती। वह तो आत्म प्रशंसक और परनिंदक होता है।

वह कहता है
भला जो खोजन मैं चला भला न मिला कोय,
जो दिल खोजा आपना मुझसे भला न कोय।



ध्यान रखना जिसकी निंदा-आलोचना करने की आदत हो गई है, दोष ढूँढने की आदत पड़ गई, वे हजारों गुण होने पर भी दोष ढूँढ निकाल लेते हैं और जिनकी गुण ग्रहण की प्रकृति है, वे हजार अवगुण होने पर भी गुण देख ही लेते हैं, क्योंकि दुनिया में ऐसी कोई भीचीज नहीं है जो पूरी तरह से गुणसंपन्ना हो  या  पूरी तरह से गुणहीन हो। एक न एक गुण या अवगुण सभी में होते हैं। मात्र ग्रहणता की बात है कि आप क्या ग्रहण करते हैं गुण या अवगुण।



तुलसीदासजी ने कहा है -

जाकी रही भावना जैसी,
प्रभु मूरत देखी तिन तैसी।


अर्थात जिसकी जैसी दृष्टि होती है
उसे वैसी ही मूरत नजर आती है।
