Sai Baba




We regard Sai Baba as an incarnation of God, but, He always said that He was an obedient
servant of God. Though an incarnation He showed the people the way, how to behave satisfactorily
and carry out the duties of their respective stations in this life. He never emulated others in any way,
nor asked others to have something done for Him. For Him, Who saw the Lord in all movable
and immovable thingsof this world, humility was the most proper thing. None He disregarded
or disrespected; for He saw Narayan (Lord) in all beings.


He never said...

"I am God," but that He was a humble servant and
He always remembered Him and always uttered -
"Allah Malik" (God is the sole proprietor or Owner).

Really this Jiva (human soul) transcends the three qualities, viz. Sattwa, Rajas and Tamas, but being deluded by Maya, he forgets his nature which is 'Existence-knowledge-bliss', and thinks that he is the doer and enjoyer and thus entangles himself in endless miseries and does not know the way of deliverance. The only way of deliverance is Loving Devotion towards the Guru's feet. The great Player or Actor Lord Sai has delighted His Bhaktas and transformed them into Himself



Eleven Assurances of Sai Baba
Whoever puts his feet on Shirdi soil,
his sufferings
would come to an end.

The wretched and miserable would rise into plenty of joy and happiness,
as soon as they climb the steps of my Mosque. I shall be ever active and vigorous even
after leaving this earthly body. My tomb shall bless and speak the needs of my devotees.

I
shall be active and vigorous even from my tomb. My mortal remains would speak
from my tomb. I am Ever living to help and guide all, who come to me,
who surrender to me and who seek refuge in me.

If you look at me I look at you.
If you cast your burden on me, I shall surely bear it.
If you seek my advice and help, it shall be given to you at once.
There shall be no want in the house of my devotees.
