Raksha Bandhan

Links to this post


There are 2 versions of story about Raksha Bandhan
1 st one is
Raksha Bandhan is not only for meant for siblings, but for protection for any loved one. 'Raksha' means protection and 'bandhan' means bond. Hence the festival does not signify bond between a brother and sister only.

Once Indra, the God of Heaven was about to go into battle and was feeling a little apprehensive. When his wife tied a sacred thread to his arm for his protection and assurance all his fears vanished and he was successful in all his endeavors. From then on began the tradition of celebrating Raksha Bandhan. A festival of protection for loved ones.
2nd one is
Raksha Bandhan In Mythology And History And What It Is Today
The roots of most of the Hindu festivals can be traced to Hindu Mythology. We do hear about why is Holi celebrated or what is the significance of Diwali but hardly anyone knows why Raksha Bandhan is celebrated. All one knows about it is that it is the festival for the brothers and the sisters when they wish good life to each other and the sister ties rakhi to her brother.

Raksha Bandhan is mentioned in our epics as a festival of Gods. It is said that Yamuna, the sister of Yama, the lord of Death used to tie rakhi to his brother on every Shravan Purnima. Indrani tied Rakhi to his brother Lord Indra. Yama was so impressed by the occasion that he declared that who ever got a Rakhi tied from his sister would become immortal. From that day onwards girls tie rakhi to their brothers wishing them a long life and brothers bestow their blessings by promising to take care of the sisters through thick and thin.

While tying the rakhi, the girls chant

"Yena baddho Balee raajaa daanavendro mahaabalah
tena twaam anubadhnaami rakshe maa chala maa chala"

meaning "I am tying a Rakhi on you, like the one on mighty demon king Bali. Be firm, O Rakhi, do not falter."

The legend relates that the mighty Demon king Raja Bali was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu. When lord Indra could not counter Bali, he went to Lord Vishnu for help. Vishnu overthrew Bali to the nether world. Lord Vishnu promised King Bali immortality till he would be crowned as Indra and also that he would guard the kingdom of Patala leaving his own abode in Vaikunth. 

Godess Laxmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu, wished the Lord to be back at Vaikunth. Disguised as a Brahmin woman she went to Bali to seek refuge till her husband returned home after finishing some important task. King Bali obliged. With her came the happiness and wealth. All auspicious things happened. 

On the Shravan Purnima Goddess tied the sacred thread to Bali and prayed for his well being. Bali was touched by the gesture. He accepted her as her sister and requested her to make a wish. At this She revealed herself and told that it war Narayan himself guarding hid Kindom. King Bali immediately requested the Lord to return to his abode. 

From that day on, girls tie rakhi to their brothers and seek blessings.
Happy Raksha Bandhan

Be Obedient to Baba, Nothing can Scare You.

Links to this post

In life, health and happiness depend on the grace of God. We get them by our fair conduct and faith in God. The reason for not getting the grace of God is due to lack of obedience and devotion. Obedience means complete surrender and just doing as commanded. This is an integral part of devotion. Obedience means to have firm faith in God as a child has in its father. "Why does father command so? Why does he do so?" such questions will not occupy a child's mind. He will simply obey his father's commands. So, we need not search for the 'cause-effect' link in everything.

We may not understand the acts of God. But we need to obey Him. Obedience will brighten our future. When devotees came to Baba to take leave, Baba used to ask them not to leave Shirdi on that day, but leave the next day. Devotees obeyed Baba's word, and re-scheduled their journey despite urgency and never did they incur any loss. Whatever happened turned out to be good. The disobedient left Shirdi much against Baba's wish and suffered a lot. Only God knows what is in store for us tomorrow. People who abide by God's command will safely reach the right destination. Violating His command might cause problems. Therefore, if we abide by Baba's word with unquestioning obedience, our life's journey will be smoother.

Life's problems

Links to this post


Life's problems are something like this.
Hold it for a few minutes in your head & they seem OK.
Think of them for a long time & they begin to ache.
Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything.

It's important to think of the challenges or problems in your life, But EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to 'PUT THEM DOWN' at the end of every day before you go to sleep...
That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh &strong & can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!
Om Sairam.

Better to be in Baba's Consciousness than in ours
It is but human nature to always worry about what others might think of them. We wish to see that people all around should think of us in a positive manner. It is justified to some extent. But, as long as our deeds are good and noble, it is absolutely not necessary to either worry about the views of others or get pained by their hurtful comments. The weeds in the crop spoil the very crop itself.

Likewise, the feelings of hatred and ego will spoil our very existence. The darkness of ego is more darker than natural darkness. To assume that we know everything is like staying in perpetual darkness. There is a nice way to get rid of that darkness and suffering. That is to stop thinking of our own self and start thinking on Baba again and again, through which medium it would become easier to come into light. Causes of fear like inhibitions and cowardice would just vanish, duly replaced by faith in Baba. Then, we can bring into light those who were caught in similar dark chambers.

If we offer all our thoughts to the Merciful Baba, we can surely be freed from turmoil and forgetting ourselves, we can attain a state of serene joy.

All troubles and tears arise only when we get attached to our physical body.

When we shed 'body-consciousness' and get into the Kingdom of 'Divine Consciousness', Baba is visible in every being.

The expression Everything is going to be ok, is an expression meant to generate hope when an individual or a group of people seem to act as if there are no more options, and seem to only notice the bad in a given situation. Knowing when to have this undying hope and how to help influence others with this positive attitude reinforcement is a very vital tool to creating the best out of each possible situation. 

Going through life with a firm belief in the expression "Everything is going to be ok" will more than likely lead someone down a path with more opportunities to take advantage of circumstances in which negativity would usually blind others to see. We should all make a deliberate effort in having faith in the fact that positive things can happen even from the worst of circumstances. Life is what you are able to make of it, you have the choice to think and act positive, while you may also choose to think and act negatively as well. It is in everyone's best interest to think and act as positively as possible at every given moment of each day.
Om Sairam.

Though it is human nature to worry and to look for threats of danger in our lives, we must come to know that if we live a life full of worry, our whole life can be slowed from us being drug down in spirit, in our words, and even ultimately in our physical being. 

Instead of dedicating a life to worry, and avoiding many opportunities in life because we are too scared that we will be hurt, we must make a solid effort each day to make each day more positive than the day before. 

Every time you notice yourself thinking in a negative manner, take a breath, and focus on thinking about how your thought may be turned into a positive thought. 

Every time that we notice that we spew negative words, we should take a second, think of a way to reword what we have said or need to say in a positive manner, and then say it aloud. 

Life is what you make it, and if you choose to think and speak positively, positive things are sure to happen.
Om Sairam

Refuse to complain.

Links to this post


 Complaining is just a way of not taking responsibility, justifying doing nothing, and programming yourself to fail. Complaining creates the illusion that you have done something. Instead, pour your energy into improving your situation. When you find ways to be productive and maintain a sense of optimism, you demonstrate that you are in control of your own life.

Complainers focus on what has happened, and give up their power. Winners focus on making things happen, and using their power to find solutions to their challenges. You were born to create something magnificent with your life! Solution-based thinking gives you that power.

Guru Purnima

Links to this post
Guru Purnima begins a new year for a spiritual seeker. It’s a day when you reflect back and be grateful for all that you have been given and that which you received. It’s a clearing of all the credits and debits from your spiritual account. On this day one should be grateful for what one has achieved in the past and think about what one wants to achieve in the coming year. The reflection of all the blessings and knowledge received, all the transformation that has happened makes one grateful towards the tradition of the masters who preserved this knowledge. And this is Guru Purnima.
Often we ask for small things in life. Our smaller desires anyways get fulfilled. Guru Purnima is the day to ask for whatever you want and it will be bestowed. Ask for the highest!And Guru purnima is the best day to do this!

Trust Your Ability

Links to this post


Trust Your Ability and Pray for God's Support
It would be a misconception to think that we are living by our own ability. Whatever work we do, it should be treated as a work entrusted to us by God. The task should be accomplished as commanded by our Master, Baba. We must remember that the capability of doing it is also gifted by Him. We have to seek Baba's blessings to accomplish the work successfully.

Then, by the grace of Sainath, our abilities will be put to effective use and the task gets performed.When a kid was attempting to lift a load beyond his capacity, his father asked, "Are you making full use of your strength?" The boy impatiently replied "Yes". Again, the father asked "why did you not seek my help?" It means that in times of need if the Heavenly Father Baba's assistance is not sought and utilized, we should realize that we did not tap our capacity to the maximum extent. Though it looks little, Baba's help would indeed be of great help to us.

Hence, we should get ready to receive such help from Baba. His blessings will make our every effort fruitful. The one who does not receive His help is nothing and only when our hearts are filled with Him, we become true devotees. Before undertaking any mighty task, our foremost duty should be to pray the Almighty, "Baba! I can accomplish the task only with your divine help, co-operation and blessings".

Shirdi Sai baba Speaks to you from Dwarakamai !

Links to this post


There are twelve sins in all and you have done three of them either in your past birth or present.

Forget the above sentence and remember what i say now
"every life you see has done some kind of sin.You have done one good thing in your past births which is why you have come to know me.I am here to bear all your burdens."

Offer a pink colour dress or towel or piece of cloth to me or someone you love.

You will realize which desire is good and which desire must be washed away.Come to shirdi or any temple near your house after you have analysed which desire in you is pure.

Light one lamp remembering the lamp is for the sai who resides in your heart.
your problems will be solved by the 12 angels who have seen the one good thing you have done in past.

Every sai devotee must remember what i say now

" i am always watching what you do.....
when you do something for welfare of others. I change the boxes in your horoscope and give you more than what brahma has written for you when you were born. My business is to give blessings for those who love and help others . If you just offer me dakshina and asks for more, i wont be pleased. I want you to forget your own pains and help others.Your pains will be cured by me"

SAI BLESS ME ALWAYS
.................... WITH YOU IN MY THOUGHTS .
Saibaba came down and lived as a 
Simple Loving Fakir 
just to be with his loving children and
shower his loving blessings .
Those were the days ... those were the moments
those were the devotees ..
who could be near Saibaba , who could see Saibaba
Saibaba always remained with us even after leaving
his physical presence .
today also Saibaba comes in one or his other forms 
near his loving devotees and blesses them with
many hidden loving moments to feel .
Saibaba always asked for the simple offerings of
Shradha ( Faith ) and Saburi ( Patience )
Saibaba always teached us what he said ...
A loving devotee Mhalsapati always had immense
Shradha (Faith ) in Saibaba .... He was always blessed 
with total togetherness in Sai
Saibaba inspite of being an Incarnation 
still he himself showed us the way of being in Patience
When his devotee Nanavali once asked Baba to vacate
his Asana ( Seat ) so that he could sit there
Saibaba calmly stood up with Patience and offered 
him the same .
Shradha ( Faith ) & Saburi ( Patience ) 
pays a lot in our life 
Its through them we live life away from
stress & sorrows of life .
Saibaba ....... I know , till i dont have a steady mind
i will not be able to surrender myself 
in your loving devotion ..
Sai i just pray before you and ask you 
please bless me with a steady mind 
which never remembers anything 
...........................................except my Loving Sai .
SAI BLESS ME ALWAYS

HAPPY AND LOVING SADGURU"S DAY

Patience

Patience is a virtue which when developed,
Makes you stronger mentally and spiritually.
When you deal with patience to anger,
You automatically reduce the anger within you.
You are able to overlook others' weaknesses,
And develop new strengths that lacked within you.
Patience makes your mind
Calm and less excitable.
It makes you a better listener.

life for ourselves.

Links to this post
Most times the best things in life are free. You never know how much one small gesture like a smile, or a few simple words of encouragement can help to brighten and lift someone to the point in which they are willing and able to overcome. 

There are many ways that we can help bring our positive vibes to the world. One of these is by being a light to the world ourselves! We may also not have the strength to be as bright of a light as we desire to be in the moment, but that doesn't mean we can't be a light at all. 

We have to be willing to take what helps to inspire us from others, and use it to give light to who needs it more than ourselves. 

When we are able to give of ourselves, from parts of ourselves that we are lacking in, we will see huge growth in these areas of life for ourselves.
Om sairam.

CONVERSATION WITH KRISHNA ..

Me- I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.

KRISHNA : Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.

Me :why has life become complicated now?

KRISHNA : Stop analyzing life. Just live it. It makes it complicated.

Me : Why are we then constantly unhappy?

KRISHNA : Worrying has become your
habit. That’s why you are not happy.

Me: why do good people always suffer?

KRISHNA : Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer.
With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.

Me : You mean to say such experience is useful?

KRISHNA : Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. She gives the test first and the lessons afterwards.

Me : bcos of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading…

KRISHNA : If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides d way.

Me : y does failure hurt 
more than moving in the right direction?

KRISHNA : Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you. 

Me : In tough times, how do you stay motivated?

KRISHNA : Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.

Me : What surprises you about people?

KRISHNA : When they suffer they ask, “why me?” When they prosper, they never ask “Why me?” 

Me : How can I get the best out of life?

KRISHNA : Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

Me : One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.

KRISHNA : There are no unanswered prayers. Keep the faith and drop the fear. Life is a mystery to solve, not a 

problem to resolve. Trust me. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.
Worth forwarding!

Everything that we do should be done with a sense of hope, faith, good will, and love. Though sometimes it may seem as though the only thing that we can do is succumb to defeat, we must keep our heads high, and keep marching forward to receive the victory that we surely deserve. 

Nobody said that your life would be easy, but the true measure of a man lies in how they recover from their failures and defeats, and not the actual defeat itself. When you find yourself in trying times remember that in all things it is better to hope than to despair. Don't let the challenges and the obstacles that you face in life deter you from the victories and the blessings that you know you deserve. Keep your faith in God and in yourself as well, follow your heart, and always keep hope alive in everything that you do!

In order to live a life in which we are truly satisfied one of the most important things that we can do is to live life how we imagined it to be. This may mean that we aim to work a job or in a career field that we have always wanted to work in, or maybe raise a family even though the circumstances that we may be presently living in won't seem to allow this. We have to be willing to go after our dreams. 

It is easy to have dreams and aspirations, but you will not truly have anything until you are willing to pursue these with everything that you have inside of you. Doing so will not always be the easiest thing or the most convenient option for you, and the ones that you love, but it will be well worth the hardships that you encountered in the end when you find yourself living your dreams. As the quote says it is time to start living the life you've only imagined, not the life that anyone else has imagined for you, and not the life that you just are happening to live because of your situation and your circumstances.
