    "Did Vithal Patil come? Did you see Him? He is a very truant fellow, catch Him firmly, otherwise, he will escape, if you be a little inattentive." - BABA

    There is a saying that (Good) Fortune knocks on your door only once while our (bad) Fate knocks the door till we open.

    Leaving aside ananlysis on this saying, I feel, mostly, many of us experience, remember, feel and memorize our bad experiences more so than that of the good ones. I feel, this is the actual (bad) Fate that is created by our own selves than the actual Fate it self.

    Let us all experience, remember, feel and memorise the Good - God - Baba always. Let us catch the Good / God / Baba firmly by training / sharpening ourselves.

    When Bhagwantrao came to Shirdi, Baba on remembering his father, at once said -

     "His father was my friend, so I dragged him (the son) here. He never offered naivaidya (offering of food) and so he starved Vithal and Me. So I brought him here. I shall remonstrate him now and set him to worship."

    Nana was sitting near Baba and massaging His Legs and muttering something.
    Baba - Nana, what are you mumbling yourself?
    Nana - Iam reciting a shloka (verse) from Sanskrit.
    Baba - What shloka?
    Nana - From Bhagawad-Gita
    Baba - Utter it loudly.
    Nana then recited B.G.IV-34 which is as follows :-
    'Tadviddhi Pranipatena Pariprashnena Sevaya,
    Upadekshyanti Te Jnanam Jnaninastattwadarshinah'
    Baba - Nana, do you understand it?
    Nana - Yes.
    Baba - If you do, then tell me.
    Nana - It means this - "Making Sashtanga Namaskar, i.e., prostration, questioning the guru, serving him, learn what this Jnana is. Then, those Jnanis that have attained the real knowledge of the Sad-Vastu (Brahma) will give you upadesha (instruction) of Jnana."

    Baba - Nana, I do not want this sort of collected purport of
                 the whole stanza. Give me each word, its grammatical force and           
                 meaning.
                Then Nana explained it word by word.
    Baba - Nana, is it enough to make prostration merely ?
    Nana - I do not know any other meaning for the word 'pranipata' than
                 'making prostration'.
    Baba - What is 'pariprashna'?
    Nana - Asking questions.
    baba - What does 'Prashna' mean?
    Nana - The same (questioning).
    Baba - If 'pariprashna' means the same as prashna (question), why did
                Vyasa add the prefix 'pari'? Was Vyasa off his head?
    Nana - I do not know of any other meaning for the word 'pariprashna'.

    Baba - 'Seva', what sort of 'seva' is meant?

    Nana - Just what we are doing always

    Baba - Is it enough to render such service?

    Nana - I do not know what more is signified by the word 'seva'.

    Baba - In the next line "upadekshyanti te jnanam", can you so read it as to read any other word in lieu of Jnanam?

    Nana - Yes.

    Baba - What word?

    Nana - Ajnanam.

    Baba - Taking that word (instead of Jnana) is any meaning made out of the verse?

    Nana - No, Shankara Bhashya gives no such construction.

    Baba - Never mind if it does not. Is there any objection to using the word "Ajnana" if it gives a better sense?

    Nana - I do not understand how to construe by placing "Ajnana" in it.

    Baba - Why does Krishna refer Arjuna to Jnanis or Tattwadarshis to do his prostration, interrogation and service? Was not Krishna a Tattwadarshi, in fact Jnana himself.

    Nana - Yes He was. But I do not make out why he referred Arjuna to Jnanis?

    Baba - Have you not understood this?

    Nana was humiliated. His pride was knocked on the head. Then Baba began to explain -

    (1) It is not enough merely to prostrate before the Jnanis. We must make Sarvaswa Sharangati (complete surrender) to the Sad-guru.

    (2) Mere questioning is not enough. The question must not be made with any improper motive or attitude or to trap the Guru and catch at mistakes in the answer, or out of idle curiosity. It must be serious and with a view to achieve moksha or spiritual progress.

    (3) Seva is not rendering service, retaining still the feeling that one is free to offer or refuse service. One must feel that he is not the master of the body, that the body is Guru's and exists merely to render service to him.

    If this is done, the Sad-guru will show you what the Janna referred to in the previous stanza is.
     
    Nana did not understand what is meant by saying that a guru teaches ajnana.

    Baba - How is Jnana Upadesh, i.e., imparting of realization to be effected?

    Destroying ignorance is Jnana. (cf. Verse-Ovi-1396 of Jnaneshwari commenting on Gita 18-66 says - "removal of ignorance is like this, Oh Arjuna, If dream and sleep disappear, you are yourself. It is like that." Also Ovi 83 on Gita V-16 says - "Is there anything different or independent in Jnana besides the destruction of ignornace?")* Expelling darkness means light.

    Destroying duality (dwaita) means non-duality (adwaita). Whenever we speak of destroying Dwaita, we speak of Adwaita. Whenever we talk of destroying darkness, we talk of light. If we have to realise the Adwaita state, the feeling of Dwaita in ourselves has to be removed.

    That is the realization of the Adwaita state. Who can speak of Adwaita while remaining in Dwaita? If one did, unless one gets into that state, how can one know it and realise it?

    Ramesh Bhai, Sai Ram!

    Aap thik keh rahe hain. Really, we have to search for a smile ...a hearty smile these days. Aise kaise Aasman toot pad gaye ya pad jaane waale hain, nahi malum hota!

    Bachche se lekar bujurgon thak yahi halat dikhayi de rahi hai.

    The laughter too has become so artificial that we can make out it's origin - the edge of the lips. The life of many has become (rather has been made by themselves) so mechanical that we may have to invent a laughing pill.

    Baba bless us all

    जीत-हार  

    सारी दुनिया हारने पर उदास होती है और रोती है। सारे लोग जीतने पर खुश होते हैं और हंसते हैं। जो ज्ञानी और ध्यानी हैं, वे न जीतकर हंसते हैं और न हार कर रोते हैं। वे हर स्थिति में अविचलित रहते हैं। लेकिन कुछ लोग ऐसे भी होते हैं जो जीतने पर उदास हो जाते हैं और हारने पर खुश हो जाते हैं। जैसे माँ-बाप अपने बच्चे से हारने पर खुश होते हैं। जैसे सच्चा गुरु अपने किसी शिष्य से जीतने पर अपनी शिक्षा-दीक्षा के अपूर्ण होने का दुख मनाता है। कुछ खेल भी ऐसे होते हैं जिनमें हारने में मजा आता है। प्यार में दिल हारने का सुख है, नींद गंवाने का सुख है। कुछ जीतें ऐसी होती हैं, जिन्हें पाकर मन वितृष्णा से भर उठता है। पांडवों को महाभारत का युद्ध जीतकर खुशी नहीं मिली और कलिंग विजय के बाद अशोक का मन भी शोक से भर उठा। ऐसे दुख और ऐसी खुशी इस जग की रीति से उलटे ही दिखते हैं। लेकिन जिसने एक बार उनका स्वाद पाया, वह फिर दुनियावी सुख की ओर वापस नहीं लौटा।   

    अपना सांई प्यारा सांई सबसे न्यारा अपना सांई

    ॐ सांई राम।।।

    Again, the Shishya (disciple) like the Sad-guru is really embodiment of Jnana.

    The difference between the two lies in the attitude, high realization, marvellous super-human Sattva (beingness) and unrivalled capacity and Aishwarya Yoga (divine powers).

    The Sad-guru is Nirguna, Sat-Chit-Ananda.

    He has indeed taken human form to elevate mankind and raise the world.

    But his real Nirguna nature is not destroyed thereby, even a bit.

    His beingness (or reality), divine power and widsom remain undiminished.

    The disciple also is in fact of the same swarupa.

    But, it is overlaid by the effect of the samaskaras of innumerable births in the shape of ignorance, which hides from his view that he is Shuddha Chaitanya (see B.G. Ch. V-15).

    As stated therein, he gets the impressions - "Iam Jiva, a creature, humble and poor."

    The Guru has to root out these offshoots of ignorance and has to give upadesh or instruction.

    To the disciple, held spell-bound for endless generations by the ideas of his being a creature, humble and poor, the Guru imparts in hundreds of births the teaching - "You are God, you are mighty and opulent."

    Then, he realizes a bit that he is God really.

    The perpetual delusion under which the disciple is labouring, that he is the body, that he is a creature (jiva) or ego, that God (Paramatma) and the world are different from him, is an error inherited from innumerable past births.

    From actions based on it, he has derived his joy, sorrows and mixtures of both.

    To remove this delusion, this error, this root ignorance, he must start the inquiry.

    How did the ignorance arise?
    Where is it?
    And to show him this is called the Guru's upadesh.
