  • "Aa-rathi" is a Sanskrit word meaning "The Close".

    "Aa-rathi" is the prayer song sung at the close of each

    Bhajan session.

    The "Aa-rathi" at the close of Sai Bhajans is really of profound

    significance.

    The camphor flame has itself has been endowed by  God with the value

    and validity of a grand prayer, the culmination of the hour-long

    yearning of all devoted hearts.

     Sai says, "While it is being waved pray - O Lord! Make the allotted

    span of my life as pure, as fragrant and as transparent as camphor;

    let it consume itself in the fire, scattering light and the warmth

    of love to all around me and at the end of it all, let there be

    nothing left of me (as the camphor leaves no ashes or residue) to

    render me liable to another sojourn amidst pleasure and pain.".

    This is the prayer with which every session of homage to to Sai can

    appropriately close.

    Let us pray at the feet of Sai Baba who is the incarnation of all gods and protector of all, to show mercy on us, and increase our devotion towards him.
    A Person, who has controlled his mind, can achieve any success in his life. How far you are trying to control your mind?
    The mind that judges not others ever remains tension-free.
