How to Empty and Free your Mind

How to Empty and Free your Mind

A nice story of Adi Shankaracharya teaching his students how to empty and free their mind:

"Adi Sankara was walking through the market place with his disciples.

They saw a man dragging a cow by a rope.

Sankara told the man to wait and asked his disciples to surround them.

“I am going to teach you something” and continued...

“Tell me who is bound to whom? Is the cow bound to this man or the man is bound to the cow?"

The disciples said without hesitation “Of course the cow is bound to the man!. The man is the master. He is holding the rope. The cow has to follow him wherever he goes. The man is the master and the cow is the slave.”

“Now watch this”, said Sankara and took a pair of scissors from his bag and cut the rope.

The cow ran away from the master and the man ran after his cow. “Look, what is happening”, said Sankara

“Do you see who the Master is? The cow is not at all interested in this man. The cow in fact, is trying to escape from this man.

This is the case with our MIND.

Like the cow, all the non-sense that we carry inside is not interested in us. WE ARE INTERESTED IN IT, we are keeping it together somehow or the other. We are going crazy trying to keep it all together under our control.

The moment we lose interest in all the garbage filled in our head, and the moment we understand the futility of it, it will start to disappear. Like the cow, it will escape and disappear.”

Feeling Free and Relaxed is a Choice!

Shri Sai Satcharitra -- Chapter 51 Summary

Hail! Hail! Supporter of the devotees!

On hearing the Saicharita, the listeners and the narrator are both purified; the ears of the listeners are purified and so also the mouth of the narrator.

"I draw to my man from afar, even across the seven seas, like a sparrow with a string fastened to its feet."

"If you are not his man, you will not be attracted to him.

"If you are not his man, you will not even have his darshan. This is one of Baba's significant aspects. Will you go there on your own?"

Man thinks of ordinary solutions; but God plans something else.

When he concentrated at Sai's feet, he had completely lost his ego. His behaviour was such that he was well content and had to totally dedicated himself to the Lord.

Whatever had to happen, has happened. Why unnecessarily brood over it?

"You are feeling guilty because you have an ego. Just be egoless. You will be free from all guilt.

Shri Sai Satcharitra -- Chapter 50 Summary

It is not correct to compare him to the sun, because the sun sets; nor to the moon because it waxes and wanes. This Sai is always perfect.

When the stories of the Saints are heard, there remains no sinfulness. Merits sprout on listening to the stories. Take advantage of this rare and favorable opportunity.

They (that is, anger and desires) drown one without there being any water; burn one without there being any fire; kill one without there being any weapons; and bind one without there being any rope.

Shri Sai Satcharitra -- Chapter 49 Summary

Practising penance is better than pilgrimage, observing vows, sacrifice and charity. Worshipping the Lord is better than penance but meditation on one's own Guru, is the best of all.

Only Sai is the object of meditation for his devotees; only Sai is their deity for worship; only Sai is their hidden treasure, which should be protected but not in a miserly way.

"How foolish am I! And how wise is Maharaj!  How wrong were my thoughts about him! How pure is his heart! '

Sai embraced some, and touched some with his hand. He assured some and cast a merciful glance on some.

He looked at some smilingly. He console some who had sorrow, and gave udi and prasad to some. Thus, he satisfied everyone.

"When the front door is open, why go by the backdoor? Where there is a pure heart, there is no difficulty, whatsoever.

"If there is no evil thought in us, should one be afraid of anyone? The eyes may do their work. Then, why should you be embarrassed?"

Shri Sai Satcharitra -- Chapter 48 Summary

The Sai Charita is as pure as the waters of the Ganga. He himself has adorned his stotra. Hemad is only the instrument.

Shri Sai Satcharitra -- Chapter 47 Summary

Natural evolution of life is destroyed by debt, animosity and murder.

We have to reap what we sow in our past life. One should endure one's destiny calmly. There is no use crying about it.

Neelakanth will give you hundred times the amount you spend.

One perceives the world as per his own inclinations. Being a rascal himself, he saw others in the same plight.

God does not like contributions without love, due to pressure, under persuasion or coercion. A little gift given with love is very precious.

"The time for good fortune is very near. Do not unnecessarily get restless. You will have money easily and you will have it in plenty."

Shri Sai Satcharitra -- Chapter 46 Summary

Once righteousness is awakened, dispassion will follow quickly. The sense pleasures lose their hold and self knowledge manifests immediately.

Wherever the devotees goes, in each and every place, he finds Sai has preceded him and gives him darshan unexpectedly.

How much time does it take for me to arrive?

When the time is favourable, one should seize the opportunity.

One who is competent of correct judgement does not permit anger to approach. If by chance it happens the treasure of peace is unlocked.

📕Chapter - 46 Sree Sai Samartha Satcharita.

Shri Sai Satcharitra -- Chapter 45 Summary

Life can be happy only if the Guru is compassionate. The impossible becomes possible. He can take you across the ocean of existence in a moment.

Service never goes unrewarded.

Can he be a real Sai devotee, if he can bear even a moment's separation from Sai? How could he be said to be attached to Sai's feet, if he is unable to detach himself from the world?

There is no better means than meditation. He who practises this himself will undoubtedly uplift himself.

Baba's permission was always the means for arriving at the correct conclusion.

The Guru knows better than us, from head to toe, our stage of development, our part in life, and our inclinations. He is the means of the final salvation.

Wherever you are in the world, near or however far, even beyond the seven seas, the Guru is extremely loving towards the devotee.

Shri Sai Satcharitra -- Chapter 44 Summary

"Wait a little longer. Such haste is not good. Baba was not like ordinary people. Baba's words come true."

All the devotees were happy on seeing that Baba had regained consciousness. Everyone ran to take his darshan.

All you listeners ask your own selves for a moment why should one be happy.

Sai fills the movable and the immovable. Sai is within us and outside us too. Sai is in your and my heart. He stays there permanently.

Baba is not in body now. Yet, one who remembers him is helped by him even now, as in the past, when Baba was in the body.

Baba's words are destined. One should have faith and experience this. If they do not come true immediately, they will do so in time to come.

"Your bad actions will be destroyed. Your merits and demerits will be reduced to ashes. I will consider you fortunate when I see the bag for alms under your arm.

"When you abandon all worldly pleasures, consider duality as improper, control your palate and lust, then I will consider you fortunate. "

Those who love me most, they see me always before them.

"I constantly care for him who only longs for me and for him no one is equal to me. I act according to his wishes.

📕Chapter - 44 Sree Sai Samartha Satcharita.

Shri Sai Satcharitra -- Chapter 43 Summary

The Saints are free from the six vices and passions. They are always present, invisible to the eye. They take form only for the salvation of the devotees. How could they have death?

Therefore, this Sai who is without a beginning or an end will ever be there until the Pralay (deluge) of the world.

"Your teachings fell upon us like water on an overturned pot and flowed away and we did not retain even a drop."

'It grieves me immediately when you speak badly of anyone', you often repeated. Yet we did not obey you.

It is necessary for each to suffer for his deeds.

It is because of that, that you have got tired of us? And placed yourself beyond the veil? How was death unexpectedly brought this calamity upon us?

It is said that Maharaj had told his devotees that in time to come, he would reappear as a lad of eight years.

Shri Sai Satcharitra -- Chapter 42 Summary

The listeners should hear the story of the Samartha for their own benefit, for listening to it would truly gain great purification.

"Look! Decide today itself whether I am a Hindu or a Muslim, unrestrainedly and remove all your doubts".

The body is a loan taken from the five elements. Once its task is accompanied, it returns to the same elements.

Satisfying the hunger of this dog is the same as giving me appeasement. Bear this in mind.

"He who feeds those distressed by hunger really serve me with food. Know this and regard it as an axiomatic truth."

He should have no hatred, nor engage in loquaciousness. These are the qualities required to please the Gururaya.

"Action does not end without experiencing its fruit."

📕Chapter - 42 Sree Sai Samartha Satcharita.

Shri Sai Satcharitra -- Chapter 41 Summary

It is said that "God resides where there is devotion". There is a lack of devotion within us, but this Sai, the great Saint has a compassionate nature towards the miserable.

What is the point in being distressed when he could not succeed in his resolution? He could not read even five stanzas every day.

"Therefore, I came to the conclusion that only when Sai created love for it and says "read", that I will undertake the reading without any problems.

Your hair has turned from black to white but your bad ways have not gone!

I will hit you with an axe. I will cut you to pieces and kill you. Where will you escape from me? Wherever you are, I will come and kill you.

I am sitting here ready to give you a whole zari-embroidered mantle, then why should you steal rags? Have you got in the habit of stealing? "

As Baba was ready to answer any questions himself, why ask questions to one another? Therefore, I had been tremendously harrased.

"Harrased" - that word itself is rude and impudent. He who was overflowing with love for the devotees did not even dream of harassing his devotees. Then the word and its use is wrong.

You are fortunate. We are close to one another. Ask whatever you want and get your doubts clarified.
