Gani Gan Ganaat Bote! 

Now is the Era of Darkness (Kali Yuga). Here, Kali is prominent in every corner and is closing in constantly on humans. Unnecessary Wars, Corruption, Social Evil, Ignorance of Divinity, Religious Wars, Degradation of Humans, and all such atrocities are wrapping their grasp over all of humanity. It has been this way for the last 200 plus years, ever since Kali Yuga began.

Kali descended to Earth soon after Krsna's Mahasamadhi, and the end of Treta Yuga. Since then, there has been a decline in religious activities and in Humanity. Wars and battles are sprouting out even in the name of God. What we see now, in the world around us, is not even a small fraction of the true terror of Kali. This is because the Ninth Avatar, Buddha, has stopped and subdued Kali to some extent in His avatar. The effect of Kali will be at the mildest for the next 1000 years, before Kali regains all its Evil and closes in on Humanity. It is a dreadful future already predicted by Krsn, while teaching the Bhagwad Geeta. Kal i Yuga will exist for about 2 lac years before Kalki, the Final Avatar appears to begin the Apocalypse.

However, the post is for the understanding of the Avatar of Maharaj. The Sayeen Avatar, of Kali Yuga was enacted by the Lord in the colonial rule of British India. The primary motive of this Avatar was to create a stability in the disrupted society and to lead pure souls to Heaven and to explain the Original Divine Philosophy, which was tangled and lost in the foolish ego clashes between men of different religions.

Back then, the Indian society was split into two major and many smaller religions, out o which, each claimed to be the superior one. The main two were the Hindu and Islam, while the smaller ones were Sikhs, Parsis, Christians, etc. Sayeen Avatar was to act as a chain and link all these together. Thus, Sayeen never preached any philosophy except that of Love. He called it Prema Marga.Also, in British India, there were not any platforms or major Religious Heads as we have today. Today, they have a say in every cycle they wish, from politics to social affairs. But Sayeen needed no such platform. In the beginning years, till 1910, Baba mostly only had devotees from Shiradi, Neemgaon, Rahata and Khopergaon. These are all villages around and close by to Shiradi. He drew all the worthy and chosen souls from all corners of the world to give the deserving ones Moksha (Salvation). 

Thus, in order to weave the society together again, Sayeen used the supreme threads of Love and Brotherhood. He mingled with all and gave no importance to gender, cast, creed, color or money. He was the Father to all. He helped not only men but also animals, stating the equality of all lives. He demonstrated practically the Divine Knowledge of All the Holy Scriptures. He was the meaning and the Author of all the Divine Scriptures.

The method He used, will be discussed in the coming posts in due course.

Om Sai, Shree Sai, Jai Jai Sai!!! 





Maharaj gave 11 assurances to all His devotees which have been proved true often before and even after His Mahasamadhi. All of these are only for the welfare of His devotees and Baba clearly states how He is always alert, even after leaving His Mortal Coil.

These Assurances are,

1) The One who steps onto the soil of Shiradi, 
all his sufferings shall come to an end.

2) The one who climbs the steps of this Masjid Mai,
I shall grind all his sorrows under My Foot.

3) I will be active for My devotees,
even after leaving this earthly, temporary body.
4) All I ask of you, is your Faith and Patience.
Come and visit my Samadhi with Faith and your call will be answered.

5)Know that I am Immortal and always with you,
 this, can be experienced by any of My true devotee.

6) My Tomb will bless My devotees,
After My Samadhi.

7) Whoever turns to Me for Help or Guidance,
   he will receive it the moment it is Sought.

8) You look to Me,
I look to You.

9) I am ever dependent on him,
    who sees Me in all living beings.

10) There shall be no lacking of,
        Food, Clothes or Shelter for My devotees because I look after them.

11) After My Samadhi,
     My bones will talk to My devotees.

A summary about the Saint


Maharashtra, a state of India, has often been called the Land of Saints. The reason behind this lies in the glorious past of this sacred land. Ever since the ancient times, long before colonization even started in the world, this pious land has been visited by several saints of many religions. These God-men were much different from the ones seen today. They were one with the Lord and preached the path of Love to go back Home. Even during the World Wars and while India was in the cold grip of colonization, many saints sprouted and preached happiness, becoming the only streaks of light in the frightening darkness.

During such times, in the District of Ahmedbad in the state of Maharashtra, exist a small village under the British rule, named Shiradi (present day Shirdi). In this village, in the year 1860, arrived a youth donning a Khafni (a long shirt worn by sages) and a khafna (a piece of cloth tied around the head by sages). He had a bright aura that would put even the Sun's light to shame. He worn no foot-wear and carried a satka (a small stick of metal or wood). His skin was fair and his height was around 5.6 feet. His eyes were deep and bright, overflowing with love and joy. He also carried a small brick, as big as his palm. 

This Yogi spoke to none, interacted with none. He sat under a huge Neem Tree, silent in meditation, His mind merging with the Lord. He attracted the local crowd who were puzzled at His strange behavior. No one would believe that a young lad of !6 years would perform such meditation in all climates, unaffected by his surroundings. Some began to look at Him as a great Yogi, while others scorned at him, calling him 'Pagal Fakir' (hindi/marathi translation of Mad Sage.). But none of this bothered him. He lived on, intoxicated by the Divine Love of Lord. 

But soon this began disturbing his penance. So one night, tired of the constant bothering, he finally left Shiradi and went away. The next day, when His devotees found the young fakir missing, they were all heart-fallen. They searched throughout the village other other closeby villages of Rahata and Neemgaon, but in vain. 

In a village beyond Neemgaon, called Khopargaon, there lived a rich gentleman named Chand. He was the Patil (Village head) of Khopargaon. Once, his mare named Bijli ran away. He searched endlessly for two months, but could not trace his mare. Bijli was his favorite and he also considered her lucky. So dejected, he finally gave up and was returning to Khopargaon and was very tired. Suddenly, he saw a young lad sitting under a neem tree, preparing a chillim (Clay pipe) to smoke. Looking at the young boy dressed like a yogi, Chand got drawn to him. 

"Really tired after looking for your mare?" The boy said. "come, have a smoke with me."

As Chand looked on in amazement, the boy almost readied the chillim. The only things left were wetting the Chappi to draw smoke and fire to light it. The boy hit the ground with his satka and fire sparked out with a live ember. He lit his Chillim and then hit the ground again, drawing out a spring of water. He wet the Chappi and both smoked.

"Chand, your Bijli is by the stream near Khopargaon. Go, get her." He said.

"Oh fakir, you are the incarnation of Mohammad Himself. please come and stay at my humble house." Chand said.

In this way, Chand Patil took the Fakir to Khopargaon where He stayed for 39 days. Then, there came the marriage ceremony of Chand Patil's nephew. His bride was from Shiradi, so the marriage party came to Shirdi along with the Fakir. They got down in front of a Khandoba temple a little outside Shirdi. There when the priest of the temple, named Bhagat Mhalsapathy, saw the Fakir, he called out Sayeen or Sai. From then, the fakir got the name Sai. The marriage party ended well and they returned to Khopargaon, but Sayeen stayed behind and forever in Shiradi. In this way, the fakir returned to Shirdi after one year. 

From then, Sayeen Baba (Father Sai) began his divine duty of reforming the society and spreading the love of God.
