ॐ श्री साईं नाथाय नमः
If somebody talks about the miracles, then Shree Saibaba is one of the prominent names which comes to everyone’s mind.
The lotus feet of Baba touched the soil of Shirdi during the 20th century, his devotees declared him as an incarnation of holy God Shree “DATTATREYA ”. Before Baba’s emergence, Shirdi has been just a small village in Maharashtra, but devotees’ strong devotion and faith have made it a holy place. Your feet on Shirdi can provide you the charity and credits of the pilgrimages at once. According to accounts from his life, he preached the importance of “realization of the self” and criticized “love towards perishable things”. His teachings concentrate on a moral code of love, forgiveness, helping others, charity, contentment, inner peace and devotion to the God and guru. He stressed the importance of surrender to the true Satguru, who, having trod the path to divine consciousness, will lead the disciple through the jungle of spiritual training.
The 11 assurances/ promises of Shree Sainath to his devotees.
1. The one who comes to Shirdi, will be free from miseries.
जो शिरडी आयगा आपद दूर भगाएगा
Nobody can be close to Baba against his desire; if you once go to Shirdi, it’s not your will, it’s Baba’s plan of calling you.
2. The one who will bow towards my Samadhi, I will change their pain into pleasure.
चढ़े समाधी की सीढ़ी पर, पैर तले दुःख की पीढ़ी पर
Once you entered into Samadhi Mandir, where Baba’s body is resting. Your all miseries will come to an end. Baba knows all your past Karmas, your present needs, and your uncertain future.
3. It doesn’t matter whether I’m alive or not; even though I’m not in my body, I will also look after my devotees.
त्याग शारीर चला जाऊँगा, भक्त हेतु दौड़ा आऊँगा
Baba sacrificed his body in 1918 at 2:30 pm, on the holy festival of Vijaya Dashmi. He says, it doesn’t matter whether he is alive or not, he is omnipresent, he is watching you every time, he talks to you when you talk to him, he hears you, he takes care of you, it doesn’t matter whether you are in Shirdi or not, just remember him and he shall be there for you.
4. Your faith ought to be determined in me, and I shall grant you whatever you pray.
मन में रखना दृढ विश्वास, करे समाधि पूरी आस
Undoubtedly Baba is the only living God of Kali Yuga. You can’t love him against his desire. Well, each devotee has faith, but Baba seeks your patience too. “SHRADDHA & SABURI”. You pay him your patience; your wishes shall be granted.
5. Feel me everywhere and realize the truth.
मुझे सदा जीवित ही जानो अनुभव करो सत्य पहचानो
Just like his previous assurance, you need to believe he is always alive; you just need to feel him.
6. Nobody goes empty-handed from me, it’s my promise.
मेरी शरण आ खाली जाए, हो ऐसा कोई मुझे बताये
The one who goes on a righteous path, the one who is not selfish, the one whose world is incomplete without SHREE SAINATH, is the one who is loved by Baba very much.
7. I will be there for you in whatever form you worship me.
जैसा भाव रहा जिस जन का, वैसा रूप हुआ मेरे मन का
Even while having great powers, Baba spent his whole life as a FAKIR; he used to collect BHIKSHA from 5 houses and then survived on it, so it never matters in what form you treat him; you just need to have a pious feeling and ample of love and faith for him.
8. I will take care of your everything, have faith in me.
भार तुम्हारा मुझ पर होगा, वचन न मेरा झूठ होगा
Baba is always hungry for the love of devotees, there are devotees for whom Baba is their priority, and they are the only ones whose problems are taken by Baba himself.
9. Come and take help from me; your longings are now to be granted soon.
आ सहायता लो भरपूर, जो माँगा वो नहीं है दूर
If you have faith in Baba, tell everything to him, share your pain, your happiness, your uneasiness, your barrier, your desires, your everything, talk to him as if he is standing before you, instead of seeking help from others, seek help from him and see his miracles.
To be honest, I am writing this blog and I am feeling like he is sitting before me and smiling.
10. The one who believes in me, I always bear his/her burden.
मुझमें लीन वचन मन काया, उसका ऋण न कभी चुकाया
The pain of devotees is a fire to Baba’s heart; he can never see his devotee shattered in pain and his/her eyes filled with tears. Shree Saibaba is an ocean of mercy; just for once, love him selflessly, and he shall grant you his control.
11. Just consider yourself to me; there would be no unfulfilled longings in you.
धन्य-धन्य वो भक्त अनन्य, मेरी शरण तज जिसे न अन्य
The one who chants Sai Baba’s name every time, Baba gives him salvation, he frees him from all the unnecessary attachments, lust, and longings, her himself held the hands of his devotees and grants him everything.
