    I admit that we don’t have a perfect management here. But we always have two choices. Either we keep complaining about imperfections or we stand up and trying to improve with whatever little efforts we can put.

    I really want devotees to come forward and help the Forum in whatever little capacity they can.

    Om sai ram Ravi ji

    Thank you for reply and understanding my point and my concern in this matter, I appreciate your
    gesture and modesty,   that you took it sportingly ,not as personal attack , unlike other mods , unfortunately those
    reply again proved me right .

    Yes , I am always here  to serve to Sai , This forum is mean a lot to me ,which I can’t express in words

    Babaji bless you

    Bow to shree Sai

    Sai Ram

    Thanks for the feedback. There were few bad incidents in past. I think we should learn from the past and focus on present.

    I hope to see your contribution.

                                         Better late than never!!!

    After reading your post this is the first thought which came in my mind , at least you could feel this..

    Ravi ji ,You know one thing,few days before, I posted two article over here, one of them was reply of a post , I don’t
    know whether you read it or not , but one of Sai devotee read and liked it and mailed me,  that you wrote very nice
    but where did you post it , that is useless.bcoz there people has become totally insensible in these days, they are
    least concern about spiritual things , they are too much busy in their own problem,they just come , type and go ..soon
    your post will be gone into trash .I was speechless..bcoz somewhere me too was feeling the same .

    Ravi ji ,When we pointing out someone with a finger ,we must not forget that all other three fingers always pointed
    out towards our self , I have been here over a year in this Forum But I am sorry to say , I hardly could see any involvement/post
    of you, except last one “Coffee Shop”  .

    When I joined here, this forum was really active , and  all kind of devotees were here ,and few of devotee were really,
    wise, sensible ,scrupulous  and were  helpful to others ,I used to like read their reply, their post, but after few month, 
    a incident happened and all things went change , I don’t wanna go who was right, who was wrong ,but being a
    member of this Sai family ,I just want to tell you, what could i feel  , at that time “Mod’s attitudes” and “ Admin’s
    silence” was really irritating.

    Only  two ,three members were fighting for their rights and for their points  , no one was there to support them ,and
    mods were behaving likes Dictator , while we need them to control the situations ,they themselves were  entangled 
    in wrangling over their own issue ,watching them like in this way, was shameful as well as painful too ..

    Yes..yes  you took action , but that was too late ,by the time those all good and genuine persons might have hurt
    very badly and unfortunately they left this forum , so your action was like “Justice delayed is justice denied” 

    I wish, I called them again ..

    Ravi ji at that time when we needed you most, you were inactive, now result is in front of you....

    Please, forgive me for using harsh words.

    Om Sai Ram   

    Dear Sai Family,

    I noticed the recent trend, nowadays that there are not many inspirational, motivational posting or articles/messages of BABA or sharing or chanting by the devotees these days.

    Have we become:
    - Very Busy to find no time to visit the BABA's forum?
    - Have no interest to share our lives experiences?
    - Don't need words of motivation and encouragement from members?
     
    OR
     
    Have we become:
    - Confident in handling our daily challenges
    - Prayer in silence for ourselves and others
    - Feel there is no need to share

     
    I feel that the forum has become not so active these days, except one or two, who are active than the others.
     
    Devotees come, write so many things for a short span & disappear one fine day.
     
    Some Devotees come and copy & paste same old stuff and go away
     
    Some Devotees spend the whole day & even part of the nights here in this divine forum & suddenly they forget the forum.
     
    Some Devotees come here to post prayer requests, to share their grief with their sai maa / sai baba to get peace and solace & then they do not log in and forget this forum and in some devotees case, once they are fine, they forget this divine forum
     
    &
     
    there is another group of devotees too, who are suffering silently & do not want to come here anymore, may be they feel enough is enough!
     
    Well, as far as I am concerned I feel this is a “satsang”. I come here to talk about my BABA, to feel my BABA and to be with my BABA and also to learn so many new things from our fellow devotees.
     
    Sometime, even when I do not get time & strength to post anything or to reply, I make it a point to read the recent messages.
     
    BABA only knows what he gave me through this forum, so I wish BABA allow me to be a part of this forum always

    I wish all of us instead of compete with each other, and criticize the fellow devotees - contribute, share & discuss many new things in the forum from now on.

    My kind request to read the this message in a positive way not as any `judgmental' about the ones not connecting on a daily basis. I am sure everyone is aware of the high benefits of doing daily postings.
     
    Many might wonder why it is important to do daily posting.
     
    Well, we all are aware that a light bulb is lit only when the switch is on and the electricity flows, from the source to the bulb. Without the electricity, the bulb will not light.
     
    Similarly for us to be more alive and gain a higher level of spiritual awareness, it is important that we remember the divine every day, through prayers, thoughts and “satsang”. It is through this conscious effort to remember God, as if `switching on', that allows us to connect with the Divine energy, the Divine reservoir and thus recharge ourselves. This act of remembrance is like making the electricity connect, allowing energy to flow down to us, and filling us with peace, joy, inspirational thoughts and goodness, raising our levels of awareness and keeping us energised and tuned in to the divine. So with this energy, we get literally `lit up', our auras dancing to the tune of the God, vibrating more in tune with God's will.
     
    And certainly through the act of doing daily posting on the forum, remembering our sweet Baba that we give ourselves a chance, every day, to connect with the divine energy. Now when I know this, how can I delay doing a post...!!!
     

    May Baba help us with this
     
    Whatever it may be.......Baba bless us all!

    It’s not justified to blame Mods/ Admin for all the issues without understanding the story of the other side. These people are trying to do their best with whatever little time they can take from their busy schedule. And they are doing for Sai. And we must appreciate their efforts.
    No one is asking you to stop opening up in front of Sai. As I mentioned earlier, I have taken your feedback.

    HE brought you here and HE wishes, HE will take you away from here as well.

  • I am not sure how many times i would have told this before, but i would state it once again. This forum needs some energetic volunteers who can perform Sai Seva periodically. The seva would be in the form of shouldering responsibility of a section of the forum. New people, fresh ideas, fresh perspectives & resolved intent working with sincere veterans of this forum should be the ideal way to take this forum forward.

    Let us not hit the phase where the growth prospects of this forum are not evident and we are running out of ideas. Let this forum remain a place where we have freedom to express ourselves before Baba, where we identify ourselves with rest of the members as Sai brothers and sisters, where we not only remorse but also resolve for future, let this forum be the place where we come again and again and every time to rejuvenate ourselves. Let this be the forum become a large family of Sai devotees who love, respect and feel for each other.

  • OM SHREE SAI NATHAYA NAMAHA,

    This Divine forum is purely an online SAI Temple, DWARKAMAI, where every individual shares their experiences with Baba, happiness, sorrows, grief in their day-to-day life.  

    This online Temple is not a constituted body with elected representatives, rather it is a bunch of devotees with good will and good intention united here based on Baba’s teachings and values.

    We, devotees are visiting this online Temple and sharing our experiences not by force or any other external material benefit but for peace and solace.  

    One needs to foresee the good will of devotees in this Online Temple rather than critically looking at it. As human beings we are all one way or other limited in our situations.  This Online Temple is a very good uniting factor and let us contribute towards it with the same thought and mind.  

    Though this forum may be informal, it is has to have some kind of informal guidelines to manage it appropriately.  The main objective of this forum is not to find faults or put someone down rather it should help all Sai devotees to live up to the Baba’s teachings in our life.  If there is anything to be conveyed to the online forum one can always express without affecting the good will of others.  
     
    This is not a political forum to fight for our right and freedom of speech.  Of course, as citizen of this country we have many other forums to express freedom of speech and opinions.  Here, the focus is BABA.  In HIM, we are all one and we need to work together for HIS greater glory as one family.  No one can control the other or have rights to control.

    When we enter in this online Temple, let us feel BABA and be with BABA only. I think,  in this BABA’s temple,  there is no competitions and no different school of thoughts among us.  We are all one in our thought, mind and deed.  None of us are employee of this forum / online temple or someone is paying for the service. It is all out of free will and good intention to spread the word of Baba to the Humanity.  

    There may be perceptual errors in understanding each other but that should not be a stumbling block in the relationship with our BABA.  

    We may be able to choose the best talents among a pool of talents for a specific job or task but with regard to BABA’s Forum / online Temple everyone is equal, talented and worthy to express Sai’s teachings.  We are not working to solve a great problem rather we are here seeking Sai Baba’s Blessings, praying and supporting each other with good intention.   We need a healthy approach in running this forum rather than politicizing it.  Let us not destabilize this online Temple but work together.

    Let us not forget that, we visit this online temple to be with BABA, to feel BABA. And let us NOT forget that when you visit any religious holy place there is decorum to be followed by the devotees.  So let us also keep this in mind while visiting this online Temple DwarkaMai.  

    Please, take Ravi ji’s msg ONLY in a positive way and come forward to contribute, share and bring our spiritual experiences and feel the presence of BABA.

    Let us ALL visit this online Temple, leaving behind all our EGOS and other differences and move forward positively.  

    AND PLEASE REMEMBER, the sole purpose of this online Temple is ONLY  "SAI" and not I, ME and MYSELF.
     

    thanking you,

    Peace be to all,

    May Sai shower his blessings on all of us,

  • OM SAI RAM to all members and readers,

     
    I have been reading the mails under this thread Happy New year (was not happy reading the back and forth, it pains to see such divine forum being messed up with allegations, justification so on and so forth). I fully agree with a lot of you and all of you wrote so beautifully expressing that this forum is for BABA and an online Temple where like any other place of worship we behave, show our respect to our Beloved deity for whom we visit the temple, connect with HIM, pray to HIM and at the same time maintain the decorum and respect for fellow devotees. TEMPLE is place for worship and let all the other gossip be kept for other networking sites (plenty available these days) if one desires.
     
    I’m not good in writing and I have not much to say therefore I only read. I like reading inspirational and spiritual content that is available in the forum and specially articles on Baba’s life like Ambrosia in Shirdi, Shirdi Dairy by Khaperdes, Daily Hukumnama etc which give me gyan (spiritual knowledge) and enlightenment.
     
    I’m hungry for Satsang and that’s why whatever little time I get I like to read. I’m usually connected with BABA mentally (all day) but this site helps in virtual connection as well and keeps reaffirming my faith in Him, which helps in making this stronger by the day. The more I read or even look at Him the more closer I feel to Him. And yes we all have our low moments, and when I’m low I read other peoples experiences etc that helps me in thanking BABA even more of all what He has given me in life. Problems come problems go, this is Sansar, but let’s not waste time in all this as manushya Janam is for attaining God and getting to know HIM. Rest all is immaterial, fake and transient. Two very recent posts one by Raviji on Desires and another one by Pratap N Mishra Ji (on maut) consoling a member were very inspiring and bring out the truth of the life so very well and easy for anyone to read, grasp and understand.
     
    That’s all.  I’m a low key person and generally do not like to write in public, but I do share my thoughts with true and honest people, who have nothing more dear to them except BABA.
     
    OM SAI RAM

    OM SHRI SAI NATHAY NAMAH
