Baba's Holi Meal in Hemadpant's House:

On Holi festival in 1917, Baba appeared in the dream of Hemadpant
at his house in Bandra and told him that he would be coming to his
house to participate in the Holi meal. Hemadpant told his wife about the
dream and asked her to prepare food for one more person. The festivities of
Holi were over. Arrangements were made for serving the meal. They reserved
a seat for Baba. All the members of the family sat down for the meal. After
offerings were made to God, ghee was served; they were about to start
eating, when someone knocked the door. Hemadpant opened the door and
foundtwo persons standing there. They handed over to him a photo of
Shirdi Sai Baba with a request to keep it safely. They asked him to finish
his meals first and then they could discuss the details about the photo
later on they left the place.

Hemadpant was surprised at the arrival of Baba in the form of photo,
exactly at meal time. He shed tears of joy. He felt happy that what Baba
had told him in the dream had come true in this manner. He immediately
put the photo in the place set apart for Baba. All the food items were kept
before the photo and only after offering them to Baba, did the others eat.

The same day at the same time Baba told Shama at Shirdi that he
had a sumptuous meal at Bandra in Hemadpant's house. Shama could
understand Baba's words only after sometime when Hemadpant went
to Shirdi. Now let us see how the photo was delivered at Hemadpant's house.

Photograph recived by Hemadpant ji on Shimga Day...




A long time back, a saint by name Abdul Rehman gave a lifesize
framed photo of Baba to Ali Mohammed. After sometime, Ali's brother-in-law
fell sick. Someone said that if the photos of saints were put in the sea,
the illness would subside. So he sent for this manager and asked him to
collect all such photos in his house and also in the houses of relatives
and put them in the sea. After some days Ali Mohammed came home and
was surprised to find that Baba's photo was still there in the wall. He began
to think to whom it should be given. As per Baba's order given to him
through his thoughts, the photo was handed over to Hemadpant
.




HOLI:

Holi is an annual Hindu spring festival. It takes place over two days
around late March or early April on a Purnima Full Moon as per the
Hindu calendar. It is also called the festival of color. On the first day,
a bonfire is lit at night to signify the burning of Holika. On the second day,
known as Dhulandi, people go around until afternoon throwing colors at each
other and meet and have fun. Rangapanchami occurs a few days later on a
Panchami (fifth day of the full moon), marking the end of festivities
involving colors.


Significance:

In Hindu mythology, Hiranyakashipu was the king of
demons, and he had been granted a boon by Brahma, which made it
almost impossible for him to be killed. The boon was due to his long
penance, after which he had demanded that he not be killed 'during
day or night; inside the home or outside; not on earth or on sky,
neither by a man nor an animal'. Consequently, he grew arrogant, and
attacked the Heavens and Earth. He demanded that people stop
worshipping gods and start praying to him. But his own son, Prahlad,
was a devotee of Lord Vishnu.



In spite of several threats from Hiranyakashipu, Prahlad continued
offering prayers to Lord Vishnu. He was poisoned but the poison
turned to nectar in his mouth. He was ordered to be trampled by
elephants yet remained unharmed. He was put in a room with hungry,
poisonous snakes and still survived. All of Hiranyakashipu's attempts
at killing him failed. Ultimately he ordered young Prahlad to sit on a pyre
on the lap of his sister Holika, who could not die by fire by virtue of a
shawl which would prevent fire affecting the person wearing it. Prahlad
readily accepted his father's orders, and prayed to Vishnu to keep him safe.
When the fire started, everyone watched in amazement as the shawl flew
from Holika, who, then was burnt to death, while Prahlad survived without a
scar to show for it, after the shawl moved on to cover him. The burning of
Holika is celebrated as Holi.



In Vrindavan and Mathura the festival is still celebrated for
16 days (until Rangpanchmi in commemoration of the divine love of
Radha for Krishna). Lord Krishna is believed to have popularized the festival
by playing pranks on the gopis here. Krishna is believed to be complained
about his dark color and Radha's fair color to his mother and so
decided to apply color to her face. The celebrations officially usher in
spring, the celebrated season of love.

There is another story about the origin of holi. The Kamadeva is
God of love. Kama's body was destroyed when he shot his weapon
at Shiva in order to disrupt his penance and help Parvati to marry Shiva.
Shiva then opened his third eye, the gaze of which was so powerful
that Kama's body was reduced to ashes. For the sake of Kama's wife
Rati (passion), Shiva restored him, but only as a mental image, representing
the true emotional and mental state of love rather than physical lust.
The Holi bonfire is believed to be celebrated in commeration of this event.





OM SAI RAM, SRI SAI RAM, JAI JAI SAI RAM!!!




If you are sad n in pain, Be as the ocean, and release. The ocean tides don't pause and hold in anything, they ebb...and then they flow. Only briefly holding on top of a wave for a moment. If something from your past bubbles up, simply take a deep breath, and let it go. More love!
