An article about problems

  • Dear devotees,

    All of us feel we are bogged down by one million
    problems in our day to day life. In Sai's own words "Life is a
    series of problems.Some of them are apparently unsolvable.Do not try
    to solve such problems.Meditate,repeat my name.All such problems
    will solve by themselves".

    First of all what constitutes problems? I feel it is
    our attitude towards them.For eg if you actually consider, every
    action of ours is a response to a problem of some kind or it could
    also be to make the existing solution to the problem
    better...............Like we eat food to solve the problem of
    hunger, we sleep to solve the problem of fatigue. This way
    everything we do is as a solution to a problem. However to one who
    has food in plenty ,hunger may not be a botherance.To a poor
    destitute,hunger could be the most major problem in his life.

    Similarly, for a person with utmost faith in GOD
    (SAI), problems will not bother him.Let one million things come to
    trouble him, he will hold on to his GURU-GOD and not be disturbed by
    problems. Sai is the kindest God who has promised to be with a
    devotee who calls him with a heart full of love. He is the easiest
    God to approach and He has guaranteed to take all his devotees over
    the seven seas of existence if one has faith and patience.HE has
    asked us to throw all our burdens upon Him and have faith in Him. He
    has come in so many forms to help his devotees, He has always shown
    His care and concern for them at all times. He has promised not to
    let his devotees come to harm, no matter what!!!!!!!!!!!When Sai has
    promised us so much, can we not give Him our love and wait patiently?

    To give you an example from my life, some 5 or 6 years
    back I thought I had the worst problems in life.I cried,wailed and
    mopped asking God why he was being so cruel to me and wondering what
    I did to incur all this unhappiness.A few years later, on
    retrospection, this incident didnt even seem significant enough to
    complain to God about it.No doubt I had some unhappiness in those
    days but it looked like I had magnified it and given it more
    importance than it deserved.

    After this, some more problems came to me last year.I
    again went and wept at Sai's temple.But this time He was kind enough
    to make me realise that no matter what I may think,He has His own
    plan for me,He has His own way of working and though it might not
    make sense to me now and might not be logical, it is best in the
    long run................ Now I pray that the next time I have a
    problem, He gives me enough courage (Abhayam) to go through
    it,knowing it is HIS wish for me and it is for my good and it is
    because of my fate,karma or prarabdha which ever name we call it.

    To give you another example, suppose a girl complains
    that she is trying very hard to get married and Sai is not
    listening to her. The first thing is we know not what is good for
    us. Instead of giving up hope on SaiNath sayin He is not listening
    to us, we should do a little introspection. Maybe if she gets
    married in a hurry to the first person that comes by, it is not good
    for her.Maybe there is a chance of a separation. Why not wait until
    Sai unfolds what He has in mind for her????????Maybe Sai will send
    her the most suitable person if she waits.All HE has asked from us
    is faith and patience.

    Sai is very kind to HIS children and always has their
    best interests in His heart.It is we sinners, who make our fate and
    we have to suffer its consequences. But Sai has shown us how though,
    He could not totally remove the effects of our Karma, He can
    compress prarabdha, reduce our sufferings and give us BLISS of being
    one with him, when the time comes.

    So Dear devotees, please pray to SaiNath that he gives
    us the wisdom to let us know that every single incident in our life
    is according to His plan and wish for us.Sai will never us suffer
    more than we can take. And He is the most merciful GOD.So we should
    learn to cultivate utmost faith in SAI BABA. He loves devotion and
    is always with us whenever we call him or even sing his song with
    overflowing love.He will take all our troubles away if we only trust
    in HIM with faith in our heart.



    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.

    I am sharing the below message which was sent by one of our beloved sai devotee. Thanks!

    Life is a series of problems

    The problems you face will either defeat you or develop you -- depending on how you respond to them. Unfortunately most people fail to see how Nature wants to use problems for good in their lives. They react foolishly and resent their problems rather than pausing to consider what benefit they might bring. Here are five ways Nature wants to use the problems in your life:

    1) Nature uses problems to DIRECT you. Sometimes Nature must light a fire under you to get you moving. Problems often point us in a new direction and motivate us to change. Is Nature trying to get your attention?

    2) Nature uses problems to INSPECT you. People are like tea bags . . . If you want to know what's inside them, just drop them into hot water! Has Nature ever tested your faith with a problem? What do problems reveal about you?

    3) Nature uses problems to CORRECT you. Some lessons we learn only through pain and failure. It's likely that as a child your parents cold you not to touch a hot stove. But you probably learned by being burned. Sometimes we only learn the value of something... Health, money, a relationship . . . By losing it.

    4) Nature uses problems to PROTECT you. A problem can be a blessing in disguise if it prevents you from being harmed by something more serious. Last year a friend was fired for refusing to do something unethical that his boss had asked him to do. His unemployment was a problem -- but it saved him from being convicted and sent to prison a year later when management's actions were eventually discovered.

    5) Nature uses problems to PERFECT you. Problems, when responded to correctly, are character builders. Nature is far more interested in your character than your comfort. Your relationship to Nature and your character are the only two things you're going to take with you into eternity.


    JaiSaiRam  ;D

  • ॐ श्री साईं नाथाय नमः

    सुभाषरिनीजी जय साईं राम

    आपके इस पोस्ट को पढके मुझे बेहद प्रसंयता एवंग सत्यता का अनुभव हो रहा है. इसी सत्यता से मेरा बाबा ने इस गुरुवार को परिचय/अनुभव करवाया . मै पुनः उस अनुभव को आपके इस पोस्ट के साथ बंटाना चाहता हूँ . जिस परेशानियों से मै पीड़ित था, बाबा ने उसका समाधान मेरे मन को सत्यता का बोध करके एक क्षण में दूर कर दिया.

    साईं सदैव हमारे साथ है .

    मै हजारो कोस दूर एक अन्य देश में जीविकोपार्जन करने हेतू साईं की कृपा से आया हुआ हूँ . मै कभी भी अपना देश, परिवार एवंग संगे साथीयो को छोडके नहीं आना चाहता था पर साईं की मर्जी कुछ अलग ही थी . उन्होंने ऐसी परिस्थितियाँ पैदा कर दी मेरे सम्मुख कि मुझे अपने देश से मेरे अनुसार अच्छी नौकरी छोडके बाध्यता मूलक यहाँ आना पड़ा . मुझे नहीं मालूम साईं की इसके पीछे क्या लीला है पर मुझे ये दृढ विस्वास अवश्य है कि बाबा की हर लीला के पीछे कोई न कोई मकसद अवश्य अन्तर्निहित रहता है .

    सबकुछ प्रारंभ में सही चल रहा था पर दुसरे साल से मुसीबते आने लगी . सहपाठियों और डिपार्टमेंटल राजनीती और षड्यंत्र का शिकार होने लगा. अनजान लोग और अनजान देश में बिलकुल खुद को असहाय सा महसूस कर रहा था . केवल साईं ही है जो मुझे समस्या से लड़ने की शक्ति प्रदान करते रहे और करते आ रहे हैं . हररोज नौकिरी जाने का भय मेरी मानसिक शांति को तोड़ देता था . मेरा परिवार मुझ पर सम्पूर्ण आश्रित है और अगर जीविकोपार्जन का साधन ही नहीं रहा तो सम्पूर्ण परिवार का क्या होगा ऐसे विचार स्वता ही मेरे मन में आकर मुझे लगातार एक अंधकारमय जीवन का भय दिखाते रहते थे .

    मै इससे निजात पाने के लिए ध्यान एवंग साईं का स्मरण भी करते रहता हूँ पर माया की असीम शक्ति के आगे रोज घुटने टेक देता हूँ . ध्यान में बेठता हूँ तो कुछ क्षणों के पश्चात ही फिर भय घेर लेता है और ध्यान भंग हो जाता है . सत्य तो या है की बाबा के सम्मुख हतास होके केवल रोता ही रहता था और प्रश्नों की झड़ी लगा देता था कि बाबा

    क्या मुझे ये पीड़ा ऐसे ही सहते रहनी पड़ेगी ?
    क्या  मै जिस ज्ञान की खोज में निकला हूँ वो अधुरा ही रहेगा ?
    क्या अधात्मिक जगत एवंग आपके ज्ञान से मै वंचित ही रहूँगा ?
    क्या मेरी कुछ जानने एवंग प्राप्त करने की जिज्ञासा यही समाप्त हो जाएगी ?
    क्या मै अपने पारिवारिक कर्तव्यों का पालन करने में असफल रहूँगा ?
    क्या परिवार को मेरी ही तरह पीड़ा का सामना करना होगा ?

    ऐसे ही कई प्रश्नों की झड़ी बाबा के सम्मुख मैंने आज अर्थात गुरुवार अबसे कुछ समय पहले लगा दी थी और उसके पश्चात श्री साईं सत्चरित को आंखे बंधकर खोला एवंग 23  वां अध्धाय खुलकर आया . मैंने पढना शुरू किया और जब समाप्ति तक पहुंचा तो जैसे मेरे सब प्रश्नों का यथोचित उत्तर मुझे बाबा ने दे दिया. मेरे आँखों से स्वता ही आंसू प्रवावित होने लगे और मन सम्पूर्ण शांति को प्राप्त हुआ . जिस भय से मै कुछ क्षण पहले व्यकुल हो रहा था वो एकदम गायब हो गया है . एक असीम उत्साह और आत्मबल मिला है . जिस पीड़ा से मै कई दिनों से पीड़ित था आज जैसे पता नहीं कहाँ बाबा की कृपा से गायब हो गई है.

    मै साईं के संकेतो का वर्णन नहीं कर रहा हूँ पर साईं प्रेमियों से अवश्य अनुरोध है कि आप स्वयम इस अध्धाय का पठन करिए और बाबा की लीला का आनंद उठाइए. मेरे उदेश्य केवल इतना ही है की मेरे तरह ही अन्य साईं प्रेमी भी असहनिये पीड़ा को भोग रहे होंगे उनको श्री साईं चरणों में ओर भी दृढ़ता और आत्मबल मिलेगा .

    ॐ साईं राम

    सही  कहा बहन ,  समय बीतने पर सब समझ आ जाता हैं
    Even i sometimes get very rude with baba, and say that i need you to do something, i don't need only your sweet assurances n bla bla.....
    दिया तूने हमे जब जन्म, तू ही झेलेगा हम सबके गम....
    is duniya m aaskti ya ruchi na hone par bhi yha reh prarabdh bhogna pdta h, accha ho ya bura, hai to bandhan hi.
    kisi ne sahi kaha h bhagwan k ghar der h andher nahi. Ab kisi k jivan m der ka kya matlab h veh kitni lambi h ye baba jaane.....
    जिस कर्म से भगवद प्रेम और भक्ति बढ़े वही सार्थक उद्योग हैं।
    ॐ साईं राम
