A FOREWORD

 

 

It gives me a great pleasure to write FOREWORD to this Book of "SAI'S SPLENDOUR" translated by Sri. Caringula Satyanarayana's Panduranga Rao which gives a short sketch of the life and teachings of Shri Sai Baba of Shirdi.

 

It is wise to strive to do God's will in everything, because that is the way to peace of mind and happiness. We have to do our part, we must play the role, assigned to us by the Divine, not what we want to play. There will be greater joy in our life when we strive to please God, not self.

 

We search everywhere for one who is a visible representative of God. When we find such a representative and when in such a person we see God in action, we call him " Guru" and follow him faithfully.

 

The 'Guru' will help us. God talks to us and guides us through a 'Guru'. His one duty is to plant love for God in our consciousness. He seeks nothing from us but our own spiritual well being. The 'Guru1 is he whom God appoints to lead us out of darkness of ignorance into land of eternal light.

 

Our" Sai " is Viswaguru since for him all religions are one. He always used to say "SABKA MALIK EK". We are really fortunate for having taken birth in this land where our Guru " Sai " has taken his Avatar.

 

" BABA" has assured us, saying :

" MY EYE (OF VIGILENT SUPERVISION) IS EVER ON

THOSE WHO LOVE ME. WHATEVER YOU DO, WHEREVER

YOU MAY BE, EVER BEAR THIS IN MIND, THAT I AM

ALWAYS AWARE OF EVERYTHING YOU DO.

I WILL BE WITH YOU, WHENEVER AND WHEREVER YOU

THINK OF ME. DO NOT FEAR."

 

So let us be a pure and true follower of "BABA" and pray him to bless us, to think, to talk and to hear about him always.

 

"SAI'S SPLENDOUR" What a name ! I am very much delighted with the commendable work done by Sri. Caringula Sathyanarana's Panduranga Rao. In a translation, it is always difficult to convey the exact meaning of a theme from one language into another. It is much more difficult to translate a matter which is in 'VERSE' form. I must say that Sri. Caringula Sathyanarayana's Panduranga Rao has done his very best. Some of the verses reminded me some of my experiences which I had in my life. The Forty Seventh "Verse" in "Sai's Sacred Proverbs" is true in letter and spirit. I quote an example of "Satguru Baba's direct help rendered to me in having Padanamaskar of "Shri Yogananda Krishna Murty’ of Khammam District a preacher of Sai Tenets.

 

It was at Narasaraopet, I had the experience where I worked for three years from May 1993 to May 1996. Two days prior to Shriramanavami festival in the year 1995, the committee members of Shri Shirdi Sai Mandir, Narasaraopet, came to my house and extended invitation to attend to Seetharama Kalyanautsavam in the Mandir to be performed by Sri. Yogananda Krishna Murty. The moment I received the invitation I could not control my emotions and developed a strong desire to have the Padanamaskar of the guest. But I was helpless to go to the Mandir owing  to some difficulties. I went into prayer room sat before Baba's photograph and placed my problem before him. YES, Baba is undoubtedly a great man. He proved his assurance" DONT FEAR WHEN I AM HERE". A  day prior to Sreeramanavani festival at 10-30 P.M. I switched of the lights in the house and was going to bed. At that time a car stopped in front of my house. Somebody rang the calling bell. When I opened the door, a friend of mine jubilantly told me that Baba (Sri. Yogananda Krishna Murty) has come. Please, come and invite him. I was stunned, an unbelievable moment. My legs started shivering, voice started fumbling. Immediately I woke up my wife. Both of us went near the car. It was another surprise to us it was none but Baba who sat in the car. A tall man, with white beard, head wear (turban) wearing a long Khafni, holding a stick in hand, got down from the car. We took 'Baba1 inside the prayer room. While tears coming out of our eyes, we touched his feet, who blessed us to have peace and happiness. When my wife continuously shedding tears, he told her 'Don't shed tears before me, Baby, I am common man like you. Go and shed tears before him, (showing Saibaba) because, he cannot see tears in the eyes of his disciples". We were also so fortunate to participate in the function the next day as the first couple to perform "Seetharama Kalyanotsavam". So magnificiently the 47th 'Verse1 has been experienced by us. I request the readers to kindly forgive me for taking liberty to mention the personal experience of mine as a foreword. After going through the "Verses" I tell you truthfully that all my questions have been answered. The devotees of Lord Sai who by chance go through this publication will definitely be delighted and will know what passes in their hearts. The answer, defi­nitely will be radiance of Sai's Splendour. I pray Lord Sainath to bless the' author to carry on further in the causes of spreading the tenets of Sai, and I sincerely feel that his work is bound to be a success as Baba has said:

 

"If my leelas are written, the Avidya (nescience) will vanish and if they are attentively, and devoutly listen to, the consciousness of the wordly existence will abate, and strong waves of devotion, and love will rise up and if one dives deep into my leelas, he would get precious jewels of knowledge". (Taken from Sri Sai Satcharita or The Wonderfull Life and Teaching of Shri Sai Baba).

 

I am greatful to Lord Sai and the author for having blessed me with an opportunity to wrire this Foreword, I sincerely believe, is also the job assigned by his holy Sai.

With this I prostage at the lotus feet of Lord Sai.

FORE REQUEST

 

Having utilised all the wards in my "small" Vocabulary to Extal the "Life and Philosophy" of 'Our Saviour Sai' the super sagacious saint of the holy shrine of Shirdi, in rendering this Translation. I have only a request to make to the READERS.

 

I would Appeal to them, to take into their ESTEEMED consideration and to Appreciate the limitations I had, in Translating the "ORIGINAL" in "TELUGU.," into "ENGLISH.".

 

The FIRST and the foremost is that the main "THOUGHT" Embodied in the ORIGINAL, had to be sustained through! out in the TRANSLATION without changer or modification.

 

The SECOND-The" WORD-PROCESS" and "EXPRESSION", as also the "STYLE" in the ORIGINAL, is by for the "MOST APPROPRIATE" as well as "AUTHENTIC", which in the Translation, had to be Imbibed; if only to HIGH­LIGHT their 'RICH' Relevance and Importance.

 

The THIRD-the "MEDIUM" of Translation being ENGLISH - a FOR­EIGN Language, Appropriate or Exact " WORD EQUIVALENTS" for various "ASPECTS and TENETS" of "SAI's PHILOSOPHY"., as well as of the VEDANTIC and other DOCTRINAL" THOUGHT - PROCESSES " ., could not be used.

 

As a TRANSLATOR I consider it as my "UNIQUE" fortune to get this opportunity to Translate "SAI DEEPIKA" from the ORIGINAL in TELUGU, Authored by "SRI. CARINGULA MADHU" and to DEDICATE "this" TRANSLA­TION ,as an HUMBLE 'Offering’ to the SACRED MEMORY of the SUPREME SAI and to "HIS" Countless MILLIONS of DEVOTEES.

 

I have also to thanks Kum: CARINGULA MADHAVI for reading through the MANUSCRIPT and Sri. CARINGULA SHIVEN for his Assistance, in the Compilation and Completion of this TRANSLATION.

 

May the IMMORTAL SAI in "HIS" SUPREME COMPASSION, "bless" all of "us"., to " LIVE and LEAD a LIFE" of "LOVE, HUMILITY and COUR­TESY1., making " our " LIFE, WORTHWHILE for the ULTIMATE EMANCIPA­TION.

 

At your Service,

Verily ‘THOU’ Art BENIGN, BOUNTIOUS, DENEFACTIOUS, O! the SAI's of SHIRIDI;

 

2. "DUTY” Conscious, "ACTION" Oriented, with Blossoming “FAITH”.,

"PREMORDIAL (1) - MOTHER" Approached the “TRINITY" for PROCREATION;

Un-Sure "They" Renegged, Ignored and were Indifferent.,

To Dispel DOUBT and DISBELIEF, the GREAT MOTHER AVOWED.

To Propogate, to promote and to invest "ENERGY" into the "MATTER".,

In Cosmic Rhythm and Rhyme, through 'OM' the PREMORDIAL SOUND.,

Even 'YOGIS (2)' wondered and bewildered, at the MARVEL of the MOTHER.,

Such DIVINE MOTHER ‘THOU’ hath Endeared and within “THEE” Enshrined.,

In Humility THEE, I Approach, to moan, to Atone.,

And to reform, to recompense, for the past "SINS" and future "FOLLIES".,

Verely THOU Art OMNIPOTENT, OMNIPRESENT, O! the SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

(1)               Premordial Mother:- ADI SHAKTI, (2) YOGIS:- Masters of Yoga SCIENCE

 

3. In THY daily SOJOURN, Thou hath Accepted offerings unasked.,

In Joy from DISIPLES Big and small, Fulfilling their wants.,

For a few among them, THOU hath even offered GIFTS.,

Such Acts for many were MIRACLES, Super Human, Super Divine.,

Gifting the coins to "LAXMIBAI" added sanctity to THY Deeds.,

WHO Else, Other than THOU, could be truely and Divinely "HUMANE"?

Verily THOU Art MERCIFUL, MUNIFICENT, O! the SAl of SHIRIDI.,

 

 

SAI's MISSION and PHILOSOPHY of CHARITY

 

1.         When 'All’ wealth is turned into Ashes by a burning INFERNO,

When ‘All’ our NEAR and DEAR Desert us,

When we are ABHORED, AVOIDED, HATED and Driven away;

When Nothing to shield and shelter, Body and shame.,

When Desolation haunts the Body and Despair Nags the Mind;

If THOU wert then Ignore me; to whom shall I look and where shall I go?

Tell us, O! THE GREAT GIVER O! THE SAl of SHIRIDI.,

 

2.         When comforts and Luxuries, wealth and Riches, Ensure Happiness

When food and Clothing are Abundant, When Mirth and Joys Galore.,

When Health and Home are HAVEN Sans cares and sorrows.,

When miseries and sufferings do not dog Body and mind.,

Unmindful then to rescue even ONE, from Hunger and want.,

How then shall anyone become Entitled to Enter the portals of Heaven ?

Tell us, O! THE GREAT GIVER O! THE SAl of SHIRIDI.,

 

3.     "CONTENT” we can NEVER Make ANYONE,

By Bequeathing ALL the WEALTH of the WORLD.,

EVEN with the Costliest of Luxuries and cosiest of comforts.,

White wallowing in RICHES, Marrow's Wealth Torments.,

Saying "Just-for-one" next for two, at the End atleast for SEVEN Generations Amassing LEGACY becomes a pleasing PASTIME.,

Uncaring for SINS, Unmindful of ULTIMATE RESULTS,

Burying PIETY and PEACE seven FATHOMS Deep,

SICKNESS Gnawing the BODY, MIND and INTELLECT;

Other than REPENTENCE and REGRET, who Else shall be OUR MATES!

Tell us, O! THE GREAT GIVER, O! THE SAl of SHIRIDI.,

 

4..        THOU hath preached that of all CHARITIES Feeding Food to others the HOLIEST For it Mitigates HUNGER, Activates the BODY,

It instills PEACE in MIND and POISE in BODY;

Hence, EXCELLENT and EMINENT of all, is this VIRTUE of CHARITY.,

So shall its EVERLASTING Effect, be bestowed Upon the GIVER and the RECIVER.,

Verily! the GLORIEST of the Legion of PIOUS VIRTUES, is CHARITY., CHARITY of FOOD, Truely the most precious DIADEM among ALL "PIETIES", THOU hath emphasised ‘Time and Again’ O! the Great GIVER, O! the SAl of SHIRIDI.,

 

5.         At all Times, in all conditions, "HUNGER" remains the MOST Powerful 'WANT'.,

Without HUNGER, Eternal TIME would have stood STILL,

CONSIGNING ALL CREATION to a Naught,

Making ALL HUMAN ‘Life, Living and Civilization’, CHARM-LESS.,

Sordid, Loathsome, Redundant and SUPERFLUOUS.,

Only in a WELL-FED BODY, could a SOUND MIND Subsists.,

Only well Nourished Body, sound MIND and strong will, Achieve coveted Ambitions.,

AND without FOOD and NOURISMENT, Lapse into INACTION; Body. Mind and Intellect.,

Making Life Listless, Lethargic, Totally LUDICROUS and LAMENTABLE.,

Either to Achieve ENLIGHTENMENT, or EMANCIPATION.,

Or Enkindle within 'me’ the Lamp of KNOWLEDGE or Englitter "SELF-SCIENCE".,

To Prod "me" even for the "ULTIMATE-REUNION" with “THEE".,

Verily FOOD, CHARITY of food, are but MOTIVATING FORCES.,

So "THOU" hath emphasised 'Time and Again", Time and Again".,

O! THE GREATEST of GIVERS, O! THE GREAT SAl of SHIRIDI.

Delectably Delicious Feasty foods, Richly-royal Robes, Fragrant Flowers.,

All there I desire Not, Not even AIRAVATH, KALPATHARU and KAMADHENU Do I covet.,

Enthuse me to perform my DUTY and my Daily REGIMEN.,

Tired and Incapable of living a world-oriented life.l am.,

Care me, cuddle me, cajole me, caress me,

O! GOD DIVINE., O! THE IMMACULATE, THE MAGNIFICENT, O! THE SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

5.         Because of Dutious Deeds in this BIRTH, could I retain THEE.,

Confesse I did, my weakness, Drawbacks, Doubts and despair.,

Pardon me 'PER-SE’, Bestow me education, Humility, wisdom and Discretion; Endow me with MORALITY, CHARITY, SPRITUALITY and peace and piety., Make me AMBTIOUS for the knowledge of the SELF and the SUPREME., Make me DESERVING for Emancipation in this Birth, and from Births to come;

Make me One among the MANY of THY DEDICATED Devotees.,

Be with ME, Dwell with in ME, Untill the Last;

BLESS ME to BASK in THY GLORY for ever and for ever.,

O! THE IMMACULATE, THE MAGNIFICENT, O! THE SAI of SHIRIDI., O! THE SAI of SHIRIDI.

UNIVERSAL-UNDERSTANDING, and COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS.,

SELF Disappearing, SOUL-Revealing , Enabling MARVELS and MIRACLES being Performed.,

AS ‘THOU' hath done, after remaining in “TRANCE" and "COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS",

For THREE Feverish-Days, to ENTHRAL "THY" Trusted Followers;

VERILY! A REVEALATION, A RESSORECTION; Surely such MYSTERIES are Possible.,

So Emphasies, SAI's PHILOSOPHY of DEDICATED ACTION,

O! SAI the SAINT of SHIRIDI.,

 

4.     REPENTENCE, CONTROL-OF-SENSES, EXEMPLARY-CONDUCT.COMPANY-OF-the SAINTLY,

RENOUNCING 'ALL' POSSESSIONS and DESIRES; Serving the "Maimed-in-BODY and-in-Mind".,

HUMILITY, COURTESY, AFFECTION, LOVE, SACRIFICE, PEACE, PIETY and VIRTUE.,

HAPPINESS, DEVOTION, DEDICATION, EMANCIPATION, IMMORTALITY., HEAVEN, KAILAS, VAIKUNTH, BRAHMALOK, CELESTIAL BLISS, are but MILE-STONES, ALL.,

On the PATH of DEDICATED-ACTION for the ULTIMATE-LIBERATION.,

So Emphasises, SAI's PRACTICAL PHILOSOPHY OF DEDICATED ACTION., O! SAI the ETERNAL SAINT OFTHE HOLY, PRISTINE PILGRIMAGE OF SHIRIDI.

 

SAI THE LOTUS-SEATED, ULTRA-SUPER SOURCE OF COSMIC-ENERGY.

 

1.     Physically, Mentally Impoverished I am; who shall, from INSANITY, save me?

MENTAL-MISERY gets mitigated, through ATONEMENT of SINS,

Yet, to Dodge "Sins", decidedly Difficult.,

ASPIRATIONS of THE 'SOUL and SPIRIT' get Swallowed by Swirling Sins., WHEN Darkness Encircles All Around, only a TINY Ray of 'HOPE’ Visible Far-away.,

WHO shall, come then, to my RESCUE? Except "THOU"!

O! THE LOTUS-SEATED, ULTRA-SUPER SOURCE OF COSMIC-ENERGY,

O! THE SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

2.     To Break the SHACKLES of BONDAGE; Tried I, invain.,

Invain to counter the Designs of DESTINY, The Entire "UNIVERSE",

'NATURE’, 'LIVING and NON-LIVING’, The 'MOLECULES', the 'ATOMS', the 'SUB-ATOMS',

THE "CELLS", the 'STRUCTURES', the ‘STABLE', the 'UN-STABLE’, the 'FIRM', the 'INFIRM1,

THE 'FLOWING’, Even the "TIME and MOTION" the COSMIC-EFFECTS;

ALL subjected to the 'SAME’ "COSMIC-LAW" of "CREATION-ENDURATION-

ASSIMILATION".,

Having Born "Embodied" in Flesh, Blood and Bone; Bound to perish.,

Enduring "Joy and Miseries" of "Meetings and Partings", Gathering Numerous

Experience.,

All Vanishing in the End; 'me' Toiling for ‘THEE’, 'THOU’ Toiling for 'me’.,

The only PRACTICAL-FACT to contend and Experience, in ‘TIME and SPACE’.,

O! SAI come to my 'RESCUE and REDEMPTION’ now, Ending my Eternal Agony.,

OITHE LOTUS-SEATED, ULTRA-SUPER-SOURCE of COSMIC-ENERGY,

OI THE SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

3.    With 'Eyes' allover the Body, Awaiting Eagerly for "THEE";

Ears longing to hear “THY" sacred words; “my” words cascading to Utter “THY" Melodious NAME.,

Eyes straining to see "THY" Holy Form; Heart yearning to welcome "THEE",

Spreading the "RED-CARPET” of my "SOUL"., How long this waiting?

Why this Tantalising-Torture? Hesitation no more; come,

REVEAL “THY", LUMINOUS, LUSTROUS, SPLENDOUROUS FORM, O! SAI,

OITHE LOTUS-SEATED, ULTRA-SUPER SOURCE of COSMIC ENERGY,

OI THE SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

4.     'DREAMT’ I did, my "SOUL-SWAN" Passing into “THY" NEBULOUS-FORM, DAZZLING in Enbrilliant Radiance, Seated on the "LOTUS-OF-TIME"., "BOOMING-ECHOS" of the PREMORDIAL-"OM", Eminating from within, Pervading the vast cosmic Expanse of Heavens and Earth.,

Where, then the Need for me, for any other MIRACLE, to watch?

OITHE LOTUS-SEATED, ULTRA-SUPER SOURCE of COSMIC-ENERGY;

O! SAI THE HOLY SAINT OF SHIRIDI, O! SAI THE HOLY SAINT OF SHIRIDI.

 

SAI THE ANGEL OF UNIVERSAL PEACE AND HARMONY

 

1.     Said “THOU" hath, O! SAI, that ‘THY’ DISCIPLES are "THY" FRIENDS and NOT “THY" FOLLOWERS;

To whom “THOU" shall show wonderous WAYS for SPREADING the GOSPEL, OF UNIVERSAL PEACE and PROSPERITY through the EXPANSIVE-VISION, OF HUMAN-EQUALITY RELIGIOUS-TOLERENCE, COMPASSION and LOVE., And whom “THOU" shall protect Every moment and make ‘THY’ DISCIPLES’, Attain SUPER-CONSCIOUS state of mind, to see and to Enjoy, the "SUPER DIVINE-FLORESCENCE".,

The "PARABRAHMMA JYOTHI"; and to Hear, Intone and Experience,

The Reverberating ECHOS of the 'PREMORDIAL COSMIC-"OM", "THOU" hath Explained.,

O! THE ANGEL OF UNIVERSAL PEACE AND HARMONY, O! THE DIVINE DUTTA-SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

2.    Said, THOU" hath, O! SAI, that THAPASWEES(1)", "RISHIS(2)", who in 'YOGIC-TRANCE(3)”

Sitting in "SIDDASANA"(4), contemplate upon the "CREATOR", their "BODY" Getting IMPERVIOUS to all EXTERNAL EXPERIENCES.,

Whose Every BREATH Echo the sacred Name of "OM-SRI-SAI",

Their "MIND" getting LUMINSCENTLY EFFERVESCENT with PURE JOY,

Their "INTELLECT” getting Encalmed with Everlasting Equanimity,

Their "INNER" EYES OFYOGIC "knowledge and Experience" Focussing on the "CEREBRAL VORTEX",

OBLIVIOUS to ALL outside Interruptions and Interference,

As "THY" Smiling-Form, sitting on the celestial-Lotus, in Endazzling Radiance, Enshines in the PORTALS of their INNER-MIND, the "DAWN" of ENLIGHTENMENT,

Pervades the FIRMAMENT of their INNER-INTELLECT,

CONQUER, they would, the THREE "Savage-Stallions" of "BODY, MIND, INTELLECT,

ALSO the THREE CHARIOTS-OF-TENSES of “TIME”.,

TRANSCENDING all PHYSICAL "BONDS and LIMITATIONS", they TRANS

MIGRATE into ETERNAL IMMORTALITY; THOU" hath Explained.,

O! THE ANGEL OF UNIVERSAL PEACE AND HARMONY,

O! THE DIVINE-DATTA-SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

3.     Said, “THOU" hath, O! SAI, that the DOYENS among "MUNIS",

Sitting in Modified "SIDDASANA", closing their 'Ears' with Thumbs' and their 'Eyes' with 'Fingers'.,

Regulating "BREATH and BREATHING" in modulated-cycles,

Intoning" the SACRED" "OM-SRI-SAI" in their MIND'S SANCTUM SANCTORUM,

Would Demolish all DESIRES, Destroy all Evil-Thought, Defeating all Deceptive Tendencies.,

Enstrengthen and Enpurify their MIND and INTELLECT, Relegating the BODY.,

Envisualise and Envision 'THY’ SUPERCILIOUS FORM, Emitting "OM-IC" Vibrations;

Attain they would, the ULTIMATE-STATE of UNIVERSAL-ONENESS.,

Thus "THOU" hath Assured, Thus “THOU" hath Re-Assured;

O! THE ANGEL OF UNIVERSAL-PEACE, O! The ANGEL of UNIVERSAL

HARMONY, O! THE DIVINE DATTA-SAI of SHIRIDI.

SAI's LAST TESTAMENT

 

 

1     FOLLOW the path of DEVOTION, I can not, mind mortaged, Name Ill-Reputed.,

No will to worship, no patience to practice Rituals; knowing NOT,

That 'THOU" Art beyond the "CAUSE-EFFECT-RESULT"- PHENOMENON, Unable to Respond to “THY" RESPLENDENT-FORM, Ignorant that Devotion and LOVE have no Limitations,

How could I follow the path of Devotion and Dedication?

O! The DEITY of DEVOTION, O! OUR SALIENT SAVIOUR,

OI The SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

2.     Follow the path of "KARMA"—“THE-DUTY-BOUND-ACTION", I can not,

For everything “THOU" ordain, "THOU" 'my' ONLY MASTER,

AH 'my’ THOUGHTS, WORDS and ACTIONS, THOU' Alone control,

"Frank" in Expression, "Straight" in behaviour, No Flatterer I am,

Target of censure, often I become., unperseverant in "pursuits".,

Mind Unsteadfast, Vagrant, Vagabondish; Hesitant in Action, unsure of Results., Weak in Body, Meek in Mind, Timid in Approach; searching for TRUE-IDENTITY., How could I follow the path of "KARMA" - The "DUTY-BOUND-ACTION" ?

O! The APOSTLE OF DUTY, O! OUR SALIENT SAVIOUR,

OI The SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

3.     Follow the path of "ENLIGHTENMENT", I can Not.,

'SANS’ Saintly-company, 'sans' Guru's Benediction;

Unable to Experience the AII-PERVADING, Unable to practice CONTEMPLATION and meditation.,

Slave to IGNORANCE, "without" a good Thought, a good ward, a good Deed., With "LEARNING" Eclipse"d, "REASONING" clipped, "Hopes" lost.,

Totally PERPLEXED, CONFUSED, DISPAIRED, DEMORALISED.,

How could "I" follow the 'path' of ENLIGHTENMENT?

O! THE PRODIGAL PROPHET, O! OUR SALIENT SAVIOUR,

OI THE SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

4.    "ALL" of the ‘THREE’ paths, though Equally difficult and Arduous,

‘THOU’ hath mastered them and Mingled them so SKILLFULLY,

That "they" seemed NATURAL to "THEE".,

That "they" manifested often in "THY" Daily-Life and Teachings and Sayings., Captivating the HEARTS and the MINDS of the LAITY as well as the LEARNED., "THY" shrines Dotting Every Locality, Every SUBURB;

Transcending countries and continents, TIME and AGE.,

How can I Describe "THY" Teachings? Eulogise “THY" philosophy ?

Determine “THY" Role in HISTORY, in the SAGA of HUMAN CIVILIZATION?

O! OUR SUPREME MASTER, O! OUR SUPREME SAVIOUR,

O! THE SAI of SHIRIDI

 

5."EPICS", Philosophical Disserations.Religious Treatises, Many read I did; Discourses heard.Discussions made, all in Vain.,

"HE" who is Supposed to Exist; Never seen, Never heard.,

Doubts Nagging the Deluded-Mind, "intellect" Rebelling to Accept the "UNKNOWN" the UNSEEN.,

What CHOICE, what ALTERNATIVE, then Exists ? Except to TRUST

With "ABIDING-FAITH", the "CREATOR" and HIS COSMIC-CREATION.,

O! OUR SAGACIOUS SAVIOUR, O! OUR DIVINE OBLIGOR,

 OI THE SAI of SHIRDI.,

 

6.     SUBMERGED in SINS; DISOWNED, DESPISED, Ditched and Demoralised, SEVERAL "UNFORTUNATE", yearn to be saved and protected.,

'THOU" Alone RESCUED "them", befriended "them"; shown "them" the path of "HOPE".,

Of salvation and for FINAL LIBERATION, O! THE Ever Compassionate.,

O! OUR PRE-EMINENT SAVIOUR, O! OUR ULTIMATE RIDEEMER,

 OI THE SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

7.     THIRSTY like the "BEE" for the delicious celestial NECTAR,

I wonder at "THY" philosophy of "NISHKAMA" KARMA; Enamoured at "THY"

PURE-HEART.,

Enthralled at “THY" YOGIC-ATTAINMENTS; Encaptivated at “THY" Rustic

SIMPLICITY;

THE "THREE" paths of BHAKTI, KARMA, GNYANA-Devotion, Duty and enlightenment;

As unfolded by "THEE"', simple and cognant., have bestowed Immeasureable

PEACE and Joy.,

Why then should "I" NOT BE WITH "THEE" ? within "THEE"?

O! OUR SANCTIMONIOUS SAVIOUR, O! OUR ETERNAL PROTECTOR,

OI THE SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

8.     UNOSTENTATIOUS, UNPRETENTIOUS, UNASSUMING, SIMPLE and SOLICITOUS.,

That 'THOU" Art, charmed by "THY" conduct, LIFE and MISSION;

Enthrilled by 'THY" preachings and Teachings; "THOU" I had elected to follow and warship.,

Decided, I had to reside in “THY" Presence and Proximity.,

For the containment of my 'SINS" for conquering the Abberations of INTELLECT; “THOU" becoming my MASTER, My Lord; Accepting my SINS as well as VIRTUES.,

Pervading 'MY' being, Mind and Intellect, 'My' SOUL and SPIRIT.,

Occupying the THRONE OF 'My' HEART'S DEVOTION; Accept the Offering of my "HUMILITY";

O! OUR CELESTIAL SAVIOUR, O! OUR GOD's CHOSEN-INCARNATE.

OITHE SAI of SHIRIDI.,

 

9.         TRANSCENDING, PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE; LOTUS-Eyed "SRI KRISHNA"

THE GREAT DESTROYER of the wicked, BENEFACTOR of the VIRTUOUS; KNOWING "HIS" End, selected the"HUNTER" as the LIBERATOR;

“THOU" hath like-wise knew "THY" End and REVEALED TO 'THINE" Followers;

When the "TIME" Arrived, "THOU" hath left for 'THY" Eternal Abode;

Concluding “THY" LIFE and completing "THY" Mission;

Enbolden us, when Deathly TIME Arrives to shed our bodies Calmly

Like the serpent shedding it, sheath silently;

O! OUR SUBLIME SAVIOUR, O! OUR UNSURPASSED REDEEMER,

O! THE DIVINE SAI of SHIRIDI.
