Kaka Saheb Dixit's vairagya..!!

Kaka Saheb Dixit's vairagya developed steadily along with his love of the Guru....  

His Guru both by example and precept showed him the absurdity of the worldly man's desire for much wealth and how little was necessary even to an ordinary sadhaka....  

Especially after Baba had assumed all his responsibilities, he noted how needless it was for him to spend attention and time or energy as before to acquire or preserve wealth..... 

On one occasion when he came to Shirdi, he came along with a trunkful of rupees (may be Rs. 1000), which he earned in a Native State....  

He came to Baba, placed the trunk before him, showed him the rupees, and said, 'Baba, all this is yours'. Baba at once said, 'Is that so?' and plunged both his hands in the box full of rupees and gave away heaps of rupees to the people that crowded round him like bees for honey...In a few moments, the trunk became empty.... 

This incident is narrated by Garde, 
a Sub Judge friend of H. S. Dixit,  
who was watching all the time the face of Dixit to study the reaction on his face to the rapid scattering of his hard earned money by Baba.....  

Though any other person in his position would have felt the loss of money very bitter. Kaka Saheb was unmoved.....  

That showed how he had hardened in his vairagya at the feet of Baba..... 
He learnt again that the silver so highly valued by the world was but mud to the Sadguru, who was a "Sama loshta asma Kaanchanah" i.e. one to whom a cloud, a stone and gold were equally indifferent....

Satguru Sri Sainaath Maharaaj ki Jai.

Baba’s out stretched hand supports an old lady.

 *Baba’s out stretched hand supports an old lady.*

Padmavati Vaid a resident of Pune states, “My entire life revolves around Sainath, and I can’t live a moment without him. A short while ago I had gone to Mumbai to visit my son, and a day later I fell ill. My son got me treated by his physician and two days later I was quite alright. During those two days I missed going to Baba’s temple. As soon as I recovered I visited a temple near by and was very happy there.

The next day while I was walking in the passage to enter the hall I slipped and was about to fall, when I saw a hand reached out and hold me by my shoulder. The hand was clad in a white kafni, and it supported me till I sat on the floor. I looked back to see who had assisted me while I fell but no one was there. I would have stretched out my own hand as I fell, but feared I would fracture it as I am 80 years old. A friend of mine who is as old as me fell and both the bones of her wrist were broken and I know how she suffered. And because Baba supported me during my fall I didn’t experience the same pain and agony.

Upon my return home I went to have a check up by my doctor. He said I was alright despite the fall. Then he said, “It’s a miracle that you didn’t have a compound fracture of your wrist, for if you did you would surely have had surgery”

I thanked Baba for his kindness, and thought when Baba is there with me what can destiny do. For when I was destined to fall Baba turned destiny around and saved me. Every day I pray and ask him to take me home when I pass away and never leave me”.

The Tortoise Tile in Dwarakamai..!!

Sai Satcharitha....

The tortoise tile in Dwarkamai, Shirdi - Tortoise is regarded as one of the God incarnations in Hindu religious philosophy.....

On the floor of the mosque, about two-thirds back from the steps, you will notice a white marble tile with a tortoise carved in relief....  

The tile is said to mark two things : the place where Shyam Sunder used to bow down to Baba, and the original location of the stone on which Baba sat, which was moved when the mosque was extended after Baba’s mahasamadhi.....  

According to Hindu mythology, it is a tortoise which bears the weight of the world on its back..... 
As it is already underfoot, it cannot be defiled by being trodden on, so is an appropriate symbol to use here.... 

Please share this post, so that more people may know the importance of this place and image.....  
The next time any of us would visit Shirdi would surely take notice of what looks like a small and insignificant statue....

Jai Sainath!!!

Saibaba is a gift from God..!!

Sai Satcharitra Chapter V

"There was a wrestler in Shirdi, by name Mohdin Tamboli. Baba and he did not agree on some items, and both had a fight. In this Baba was defeated. Thenceforth, Baba changed His dress and mode of living. He donned Kafni, wore a Langot (waist band) and covered His head with a piece of cloth. He took a piece of sackcloth for His seat, sackcloth for His bed and was content with wearing torn and worn out rags. He always said "Poverty is better than Kingship, far better than Lordship. The Lord is always brother (befriender) of the poor." Gangagir was also very fond of wrestling. While he was once wrestling, a similar feeling of dispassion came over him, and at the proper time he heard the voice of an adept, saying that he should wear out his body, playing with God. So he too gave up Samsara and turned towards God-realization. He established a math on the banks of the river near Puntambe, and lived there with disciples. Sai Baba did not mix and speak with the people. He only gave answers when he was questioned. By day he always sat under the Neem tree, sometimes under the shade of a branch of a Babul tree near the stream at the outskirts of the village. In the afternoon, He used to walk at random and go at times to Nimgaon. There He frequented the house of Balasaheb Dengale. Baba loved Mr. Balasaheb. His younger brother, named Nanasaheb, had no son, though he married a second wife. Balasaheb sent Nanasaheb for taking darshana of Sai Baba, and after some time with His grace, Nanasaheb got a son. From that time onwards, people began to come in numbers to see Sai Baba, and His fame began to spread and reached Ahmednagar; from thence Nanasaheb Chandorkar and Keshav Chidamber, and many others began to come to Shirdi. Baba was surrounded by His devotees during day; and slept at night in an old and dilapidated Masjid. Baba’s paraphernalia at this time consisted of a Chilim, tobacco, a "Tumrel" (tin pot), long flowing Kafni, a piece of cloth round His head, and a Satka (short stick), which He always kept with Him. The piece of white cloth on the head was twisted like matted hair, and flowed down from the left ear on the back. This was not washed for weeks."

Love to Sai Baba and Babaji🙏
