 Shirdi Sai Baba

Shri Ram Navami From 31.03.2012 to 02.04.2012

It is to be noted that both the Hindus and Mohammedans have been working together in both the procession during the entire festival and there has been no confrontations or quarrel between them at all so far.


In Shirdi, two locally historic rituals are carried out during this festival: the sack of wheat that is kept in Dwarkamai is changed and the old one taken to prasadalaya to be used there, and secondly, the dwarkamai flags are replaced. When Urus was first celebrated, Gopalrao Gund prevailed upon his friend to supply a flag for the procession. This was Damu Anna Rasne of Ahmednagar who had similarly been blessed by Sai Baba with Son’s having come to Baba for this Purpose on the recommendation of Shama’s father – in – law. In addition, Gund asked Nanasaheb Nimonkar to supply a second flag with embroidery. This was also done and both flags (described as “huge” by M. W. Pradhan, who saw them) were taken in procession through the village and fixed at the two corners of Dwarkamai. Descendants of these two devotees continue this tradition and flags are brought and offered at Baba’s Samadhi before being taken on a grand procession.

94-kg gold throne for Sai Baba

  • Shirdi (Maharashtra) : Sri Sai Baba Sansthan at Shirdi – the town famous for Sai Baba’s temple – received an early morning bounty Thursday from two devotees.
  • Two brothers, Mahesh and Girish Reddy of Hyderabad, gifted the Sansthan a 94-kg gold throne costing a whopping Rs. 100 million.It has been made by artisans in Bangalore for a five-and-half feet idol of Sai Baba, installed at the Sai Temple in Shirdi.
  • It was a challenge for the Reddys and the transporters to ferry the throne safely to Shirdi, located nearly 200 km from Pune. The Reddys packed it in a bus, which was escorted by a fleet of 15 cars carrying gun-toting security personnel.
  • Jayant Sasane, director of Sri Sai Baba Sansthan, said the siblings, builders by profession, are Sai Baba devotees and have been visiting the temple town for the past 20 years.
  • During one such trip, they had sought Sai Baba’s blessings for a big contract which could bring them prosperity. They promised to install a special gold throne for the Sai Baba if they bagged the contract.
  • Apparently, Sai Baba fulfilled their wish and the Reddys called the Sansthan to tell them that they would keep their promise made to the Baba, Sasane told IANS.
  • “Incidentally, one-and-a-half years ago we had announced our plan for a gold throne for Sai Baba. Devotees had been donating for the cause and so far we have collected around Rs. 10 million,” Sasane said.
  • Some political parties suggested that the money meant for the throne should be used for victims of natural calamities.”Last September, the Reddys called with their private offer to install the gold throne,” he said.
  • It will be installed Sunday (December 23), the day of Dutta Jayanti. The date is significant for millions of Sai Baba devotees around the world as he is considered an incarnation of Dutta Guru.
  • The throne is the second most generous donation that the Sansthan received in 2007. In June, one V.K. Ramani of Chennai donated Rs. 750 million, Sasane said.
  • Ramani, an IT professional, donated it for the construction of the sprawling Dutta Niwas. “It will cost almost Rs 10 billion.
  • The money donated by Ramani will be used and the Sansthan will spend the rest,” Sasane added.
  • When completed, the Dutta Niwas will accommodate 15,000 devotees at a time, making it one of the largest congregation halls in the country.

Guru Poornima Special July7-2009

Posted by shirdisainath on July 6, 2009

What is Guru Purnima?
The full moon day in the Hindu month of Ashad (July-August) is observed as the auspicious day of Guru Purnima,a day sacred to the memory of the great sage Vyasa.

All Hindus are indebted to this ancient saint who edited the four Vedas, wrote the 18 Puranas, the Mahabharata and the Srimad Bhagavata.

Vyasa even taught Dattatreya, who is regarded as the Guru of Gurus.

Significance of Guru Purnima
On this day, all spiritual aspirants and devotees worship Vyasa in honor of his divine personage and all disciples perform a ‘puja’ of their respective spiritual preceptor or ‘Gurudevs’.

Description of Guru:

The human soul, even though initiated in the spiritual path, cannot love an abstract power; and it is for this reason that the scriptures advise us to venerate those who lead us to God and to love their physical presence as the Divine manifesting itself in human form. The Guru’s physical body is just a receptacle of the mighty Divine, and as such worthy of the utmost devotion and reverence.
God as the abstract Creator eludes our imagination, but when a human temple enshrines divinity we begin to understand through this familiar medium the purpose of our own ultimate destiny. Thus, when God assumes a human form, He establishes Himself as the Guru. Guru is manifested God- this is perhaps the most succinct and satisfying definition of the word, and eliminates the false claims of some so-called Gurus who are ready to assume the mantle of spiritual authority without the true manifestation of the divine principle.
The Guru as manifested God soon becomes the Light, the inspiration and the great exemplar. The life of the average seeker, as it is lived on the material and physical level, is barren and unproductive until it finds its focus in the Master. It requires the grace, protection and the powerful push of the Guru to release this imprisoned splendor which lies captive in each and every one of us.
The Guru and God are one because the Almighty and His medium of manifestation cannot be different. The Guru embodies not only the Saguna (characteristics) but also the Nirguna(quality) of the Supreme Being, and so to that extent the Guru is approachable and accessible to man’s needs and comprehension.

Relationship between a Guru and a Disciple:
Once a contact between the Guru and the bhakta(disciple) is established, the relationship between master and disciple becomes a thing of beauty. This leads us to consider the principle of reciprocity which operates in this relationship. In return for the innumerable demands which a bhakta makes on the Master, it is but natural that the Guru too should impose a few conditions on the bhakta.The Guru expects total surrender, absolute obedience ,and, the last and most important, supreme effort.

Saint of Shirdi – Shri Sai Baba – Saguna Brahma – Guru:

The saint of Shirdi recognized and emphasized the beauty of a Guru-guided life.
Shri Sai Baba of Shirdi is the Guru incarnate to live on this earth in the late part of last century and early part of this century.
Shri Sai Baba gave tremendous importance to the adoption of the Guru in one’s spiritual “Sadhana”(pursuit).
With an innate compassion Shri Sai Baba often declared -“I am your savior, not only from the weight of sin, but from the weight of care and misery”.
“Guru is all the Gods”, said the Saint of Shirdi. Moreover, the Baba declared reassuringly though as the all pervading Guru he would naturally expect
complete surrender, obedience and loyalty, he promised that through his supreme powers he would extend complete protection to those who put their
implicit faith in him.

Is Surrender to the Guru the only Sadhana Prayer?:

This question was hotly debated even in the presence of Baba. The answer to this complex question as given by Shri Sai Baba comes straight out of Sri Sai Satcharita.

Kakasaheb Dixit(an ardent Devotee of Shri Sai Baba) has published his notes regarding this matter. Next day after Hemadpant’s meeting with Sai Baba,
Kakasaheb went to Baba and asked whether he should leave Shirdi. Baba Said, “Yes”. Then someone asked – “Baba, where to go?” Baba said, “High up.”
Then the man said, “How is the way?” Baba said, “There are many ways leading there; there is one way also from here (Shirdi). The way is difficult.
There are tigers and wolves in the jungles on the way.” I (Kakasaheb) asked – “But Baba, what if we take a guide with us?” Baba answered, – “Then there is no difficulty. The guide will take you straight to your destination, avoiding wolves, tigers and ditches etc. on the way. If there be no guide, there is the danger of your being lost in the jungles or falling into ditches.”

Has Shri Sai Baba qualified to be a Guru?

Not only did the Saint of Shirdi perform his duties of Guruship during his life, but was able to establish a lasting Guru-parampara(successors of Guru’s)
through his vision and foresight.

Shri Sai Baba was not content to transfer his messiahship to his descendants.
In the last years of his life, he said to his devotees with a mother’s solicitude, “Do not grieve when my body passes away.
My tomb will live and move and speak with all those who make me their sole refuge.” Happily, though we have celebrated over 78 years of his mahasamadhi, Sai Baba’s promise is abundantly fulfilled even to-day. Millions of devotees flock to his Samadhi regularly to seek his blessings.
Through decades of void there comes echoing down the years the gracious message- “Lo, I am beside you always”.

Significance of Guru Poornima Day.

The Poornima(Full Moon) Day in the month of Ashadha(July-August) is known as Guru Poornima.
This is a very sacred day on which special worship is performed to the Acharyas(Gurus), who, through their Infinite Compassion and Supreme Grace,
have imparted the Knowledge of the Absolute(Brahma Vidya) through a long and continuous line of Acharyas(Guru Parampara) to all the Seekers of the Self.

Celebration of Guru Poornima Day in Shirdi

The celebration of Guru Poornima began in Shirdi around 1908.
One day Shri Baba told his disciple Shri Dada Kelkar, “Do you know this day is the day to approach Gurus? Bring your worship articles”.
Then Shri Kelkar and his friends looked up the calendar and found that the day was Guru Poornima day.

They started worshipping Shri Sai Baba as their Guru, and that practice has continued till today not only in Shirdi but all over the world where prayers are offered to Shri Sai.

baba_14-shirdi

 

 

 

1.   Whoever puts his feet on Shirdi soil, his sufferings would come to an   end.
 
2.   The wretched and miserable would rise into plenty of joy and happiness, as soon as they climb steps of my Samadhi.
 
3.   I shall be ever active and vigorous even after leaving this earthly body.
 
4.   My tomb shall bless and speak to the needs of my devotees.
 
5.   I shall be active and vigorous even from the tomb.
 
6.   My mortal remains would speak from the tomb. 
 
7.   I am ever living to help and guide all who come to me, who surrender to me and who seek refuge in me. 
 
8.   If you look to me, I look to you. 
 
9.   If you cast your burden on me, I shall surely bear it.
 
10. If you seek my advice and help, it shall be given to you at once. 
 
11. There shall be no want in the house of my devotees
