  • 60.    BABA DRIVEN OUT CHOLERA FROM SHIRDI

    Baba once told to Appa Kulkarni "that thieves would come and fight with you as they were very clever in selecting persons and would take away only what they wanted. Beware of it". Kulkarni thought that Baba told about thieves and made arrangements for safeguar­ding all his properties. But Baba's dictum was other­wise. At that time cholera was raging in Shirdi. Kulkarni himself suffered from Cholera. His wife came to Baba for Udi. Baba did not give Udi to her told "that he would change his shirt before me. Let him do", Afterwards Appa Kulkarni died of Cholera. People gone to Baba for remedy. Baba told them not to fear for Cholera, only seven will die of Cholera. Accord­ingly, seven died and the Cholera ceased by Baba's grace.

  • 61.    BABA CONTROLLED THE BLAZING FIRE AND SAFE GUARDED THE PROPERTIES OF HIS DEVOTEES FROM FIRE


    Once in Shirdi, Kendya's granary in the field cau­ght fire during midday. Baba told him to go to the field and see to its closure. He has gone and returned saying that there was no fire in the field. Again Baba told him look there the blaze of the fire, your granary caught fire, go with people put up the fire. At that time wind was blowing like a storm, other granary owners came to Baba and prayed Baba to save their granaries. Baba took water in a tumbler and thrown it away saying "that this granary alone would be burnt” other granaries won't be burnt. Likewise, Kondya's granary alone was burnt to ashes. Other granaries were saved by Baba's grace.

  • 62.    BABA STOPPED THE RETURN JOURNEY OF SHRI NANASAHEB CHANDORKAR AFTER HIS PERMISSION AND ASTONISHED  OTHERS

    In 1906 Rao Bahadur Chinthaman Vinayak Vaidya a friend of Shri Nanasaheb Chandorkar gone to Shirdi for Baba's darshan. After the congress session of 1906 in Calcutta was over, he returned and during his return journey, he got down at Manmad and he was on his way to Shirdi. At the same time, after finishing X-mas vacation with Baba, Nanasaheb Chandorkar requested Baba to return. Baba told him to go tomorrow after meals. The next day, after meals he packed all his Samans in the tonga and came to Baba for permission. Baba told "where are you going ? Your stout youth friend was coming to Shirdi"? At that time, the time was 4 P.M. At about 4-20 P.M. Vinayak Vaidya arri­ved at Shirdi and gone to Baba for darshan. He saw there Nanasaheb Chandorkar with Baba. All were astonished that Baba not even finished his prediction about Vaidya's arrival, than Vaidya arrived. They both have gone to Bombay on the next day after Baba's per­mission. At that time Baba told to Nanasaheb Chando­rkar that there was a guava fruit grove with best fruits (Peru in Marathi). All have eaten about 20 or 25 each. On the next day, I have spoiled the grove". This meant that Baba turned the domestic life of his devotees into spiritual life.

  • 63.    BABA MADE SHRI SAGUN  MERU NAIK TO REALISE HIS FAULT



    One day Baba was wrath with Sagun Meru Naik when he had gone for Baba's darshan and scolded him that he has not done what He asked for. Naik did not know the meaning of Baba's words first and then on deep thinking he came to know that somebody may be without food and that is why Baba became angry with him. He went and enquired in the wada. There were two devotees who have not taken their food. Naik fed them in his hotel and then again went  to  see Baba. Baba then smilingly asked him "Have you now understood the meaning of My words. Be always act like that for ever".
    Out of the two devotees one was always chanting the name of "Ram Murti Maharaj" who belongs to Nath Panth. He came previously in 1910 to take darshan of Baba. At that time Baba told to the devotees that His brother was coming to see him and on a witty mood that on account of quarrel with his wife, he was far away. At that time Marthanda Bhagat and Shri Nanasaheb Chandorkar were present. Ram Maruthi stayed in Shirdi. One day at Arati time, Baba beckoned him to come near him and made him alinganam made him to sit in His seat. One day Ram Murthi requested Baba for seera Prasad. On the next day Ram Murthi's seera Prasad came and Baba ordered to offer that Naivedyam first. Baba and Ram Maruthi were so intimate and made him to stay for fourteen days. At this time, Triambak Rao Karnik of Kalyan came to Baba's darshan and Baba told him to read ''Ishavasy Upanishad" and act accordingly in the presence of Ram Murthi Maharaj.
    Baba allowed Ram Muruthi Maharaj to go on the fifteenth day to his place in Kalyan along with Triambak Rao Karnik.

  • Leela 64


    Ramchandra Maharaj was required by his Guru Gadge Maharaj to sponsor a day's expense for the 'yagna' (holy sacrifice) that he was going to perform. Ramchandra Maharaj went to Belapur, and the surrounding places, performing Kirtans. He obtained promises of sums greater than the estimated expenses. So, he was quite carefree.

    When he went again, a few days later to collect them, he was disappointed. As the money wasn't forthcoming, and the people evaded him. Ramchandra Maharaj was in fix and wondered, how he could fulfill his promise to his Guru. He therefore offered an earnest prayer to Baba for help.

    The next morning, a devotee brought Rs.100/- and gave it to Ramchandra Maharaj while he was performing 'kirtans'. That was the exact amount that was promised to him.

    Need it be said that his faith in Baba grew by leaps and bounds!!

  • OM SAI RAM!!

    Leela- 65

    Govindrao Chandorkar was Nana's father. He, like his son, was a Deputy Collector and lived in his house' in Kalyan. Once it so happened, that there was some misunderstanding between him and the local Muslims. Upset with this, he told all his family members not to associate with any Muslims. His word was law at home. So, the family distanced themselves from their Muslim friends and neighbours. At that time, Nana was away on tour.

    When he returned, the family warned him about the turn of events, and informed him of his father's decision. This made Nana quite uncomfortable, as he knew that his father thought that his Guru, Sai Baba, was a Muslim. He racked his brains as to how to convince his father that Baba was neither Hindu nor Muslim, but far above that. He was uncertain of his father's response and he felt that he would rather die than to forsake Baba. Nonetheless, he told his father that he would like to discuss something with him. He couldn't believe his ears when his father said, " My Guru is Sakharam .Maharaj, but he isn't your Guru, and Baba is. So even if Sai Baba is a Muslim, he is still your Guru, and you may most certainly continue worshipping him. There is no objection from me on this." Nana gratefully thanked his father. He was overjoyed and amazed at the way Baba gripped his father's orthodox mind and changed it for the better.
    What was it that his Guru could not do??

    Time and again, Baba has changed people's minds, nay, and their whole life!! Megha, the Gujarati Brahmin was sent to Baba by Hari Vinayak Sathe. But Megha was sure that he would descend into hell, because he would have to prostrate before a 'Yavan'. Baba to him was 'Avindha' (whose ears aren't pierced), living in the Masjid. Megha went to Shirdi because his master forced him to. Reluctantly, he went to Dwarkamai and Baba roared at him saying, "You are a high class Brahmin and I'm the meanest of mean - a Yavan. You will be polluted.

    So go back this very moment." This was a show of Baba's 'Rudra Roop'. He was waiting to develop Megha spiritually. This He did by working on him mentally and showing him Leela after Leela. Megha, on the other hand, was changed for life. He saw Shiva in the place of Baba, every time he did Arati. With utter devotion and concentration, he stood on one leg with the 'Pancharati' in the right hand and the bell in the left.

    He did Baba's Arati till his samadhi (death) in 1912. (Sai Satcharitra Ch 28)

    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!

  • 66.    BABA  HELPED SHRI MADHU FASLE IN HIS PILGRIMAGE TO KASHI IN 1910.



    Shri Madhu False was serving Baba and then Baba's Sansthan. He was in charge of Shyamsunder. Baba used to call him as Godawala. He was the person who broke Baba's brick when he was cleaning Baba's Dwarakamayee referred to in Baba's Satcharitra Chapter 43-44 English.

    Once he was with pale eyes and fell senseless due to weakness when he was residing in Narayan Tellis house behind Dwarakamayee. His mother was wailing during night on account of her non-belief of the survival of Madhu Fasle. Baba on hear­ing this went  to her house and told her why do you weep ? I am by the side of you. Madhu False will ask for roti in the morning, then given him roti. He will be alright and returned to Dwarakamayee. In the morning Madhu False came into his senses and ate roti recovered his health and felt joyful as predicted by Baba. About two months after, he went to Dwaraka­mayee when Baba was smoking chillum, on seeing Madhu Fasle, Baba told him "that he has to go to Kashi". False told that he did not know the way. Baba told him from Shirdi he has to go to Paithan, Jalna, Balaji, Deval-gaom, Omkar, Ajmeer, Neemuch and then to Kashi. Afterwards he started to Kashi with Baba's blessings and Baba also gave Rs. lO/- for his expenses along with His one old Kupni. He went  by walk to Paithan with­out any trouble on the way. He gone to Jodu Pachude. There one Nandu Patel near Hanuman Mandir met him and questioned him where he was bound to. Madhu False told that he was a sevak to Shri Sai Baba, Shirdi bound for Kashi as per Baba's wish. That Nandu Patel made him to stay in his house for 4 days. During those four days, Fasle told to Nandu Patil and to all about Baba's Leelas. Nandu Patil give him a lift in his tanga upto Jalna. From Jalna he gone to Balaji Deval-gaom by walk. There he took darshan of His Holiness Ranganath Maharaj. Then His Holiness told Fasle "That he was no God and that Fasle was coming from highly elevated place".

    From there he gone to Chikali. When he was walking, an officer with his pattewalah recognised Fasle and made him to sit in his tonga upto his jurisdiction. From there Omkareshwar was 12 miles. He gone to Omkareshwar by walk and from there to Mamaleshwaram and stayed there for six days. There the temple people fed him. From Mamaleshwa­ram he came to Omkareshwaram and stayed there for two days. From Omkareshwaram, he went to Rathlam by rail From Rathlam he gone to Ajmer. On the way there were plenty of dates. He was tired on the way remembered Baba by the side of a stream. A Fakir in green dress came there and enquired where he was going ? Fasle told that he was going to Ajmeer. Fakir told Fasle that in Ajmeer people were fighting with each other. Fasle told the Fakir that he was very hungry. Fakir gave some almonds, Kaju to eat and chilim to smoke and both returned to Batlam, fetched a train ticket and made Fasle to travel by train, upto Bhopal and told him if anybody gave roti eat it or else eat Margosa leaves.

    From Bhopal, he gone to Jansi by walk. From Jansi, he gone to Agra by walk. Ekadashi came in the middle. He slept in a railway station without any food At 10 or 11 P.M., a man like a Bhill came and approached him and gave him "CHATTU" (a kind of flour to eat by mixing it with water etc.) and also buttermilk and requested him to eat Fasle suspected of his caste and refused to eat it, but the Bhill like man recognised it and told Fasle that there was no objection in eating as it was GORAS. Then Fasle ate it. The Bhill gone away. Fasle came to Agra. He met the same Fakir who gave him Kaju on his way to Ajmeer. Fakir told Fasle" Beta have you arrived? Go to Mathura and Brindavan and have no acquaintance with anybody and fetched a ticket to him for Mathura. He got down at Mathura and met a man who was collecting people to work in his Tea Estate. Then Fasle told him that he would not eat anything in one's hand. The Estate wala gave him money and requested him to eat at the Hotel. The Estate wala gave money for 7 or 8 days then he remembered the Fakir's word and escaped from him and went to Dhavji (Balarampuram) and from there to Kanpur by walk. On the way he was getting roti's to eat. On the bridge of a river near Kanpur when he was very hungry the same Fakir met him again and gave "CHATTU" to eat and asked him where he wanted to go. Fasle replied that he wanted to go to Lucknow. Fakir told Fasle the place where meals were , available in Lucknow and told to go to Ayodya from. Lucknow.

    Accordingly Fasle went to Marwari temple at Lucknow. He was fed there and was given Rs. 21 by the 'temple people. He went to Kashi from Lucknow. When he was getting from the railway station at Kashi, Mohan pandya an unknown person met Fasle and took him to his house and served him for five days. During these days, he took darshan of Vishwanath and all other places to be seen in Kashi. From Kashi, Fasle went to Prayag in the train without a ticket and took bath in TRIVENI. As he was hungry he sat on a bench there. There also the Fakir met him and fed him and told Fasle to return to his house and fetched a ticket for him up to Manmad from Prayag and went away. From Manmad, he came to Shirdi by walk and took darshan of Baba, He mixed the Ganges water in the bathing water and in the drinking water of Baba. Baba told Fasle "that I was with you served you in so many places for these three months of your pilgrimage as the people are not good now a days". From this we have to understand that though Baba did not bodily moved ; from Shirdi, He was roaming in disguise in any form in any place to help His devotees.

  • 68.    EXPERIENCE OF SHRI GOVINDASWAMY ALIAS BHAU SWAMY, MADRAS

    Shri Govindaswamy alias Bhau Swamy was an em­ployee in the Madras Electricity Tramways. He took leave and started with his wife and children for all-round pilgrimage in 1916. Because his Guru's name was Rambhau of South Kaaara, he was called as Bhau Swamy. He went to Shirdi on 23-8-1915 and  took Baba's darshan on Sunday. He did bhajan with his family. Baba gave him eight annas. He would get Rs. 2/- in cash and burfi worth Rs. 2/- from Baba daily, He sold off the burfi at once for Rs. 1-12-0 to the shop­keepers. He kept a dairy for all of these. This is all the diary. On 3-9-1915 he got a wonderful dream and thereby became Baba's devotee. Dr. Pillai told him to give in writing the details of the dream. He wrote it out at Shirdi and gave it to Dr. Pillai. He used to per­form bhajan daily before Baba and sometimes before Radhakrishnamai. He was highly appreciated. He was given a Marathi Book containing life of Baba by Radhakrishnamai.

  • OM SAI RAM !!!


    Leela 69

    A devotee from Dewas (Madhya Pradesh) came to Shirdi for Baba's Darshan.
    He stayed in Dixit Wada and dined in Sagun Meru's hotel. He longed for Baba
    to dine with him. So he reserved a plate of food everyday.

    Then he went and invited Baba to dine with him for lunch and dinner. But Baba
    just laughed. One night, at 10:30 p.m., just as Sagun Meru was about to close
    the hotel, a Nath Panthi entered the hotel and said, " There is a plate of food
    reserved for me. Can I have it?" Sagun Meru at once made Him sit comfortably,
    and offered the food to Him. He ate heartily and asked to see the person, who,
    had so thoughtfully reserved the food. Sagun Meru ran to Dixit Wada at once.
    But the devotee was fast asleep. Try as he may, he couldn't awaken him. He
    returned and told the Nath Panthi about it. "Always feed the hungry", He said
    and then left.

    Everyone heard about this the next day. Shama asked Baba if He had dined at
    Sagun Meru's. " Yes .I had gone to the hotel yesterday and dined to My heart's
    content", said Baba. Thus it was known that Baba went in other roopas (forms)
    to dine in Shirdi also.

    "Today, as everyday, I went to Bandra, but there was no rice, no gruel, nothing
    to eat or drink; and hungry, I had to return," said Baba to Mrs.Tarkhad (Sai Satcharitra Ch. 9).

    Baba often went as an athiti, and dined, in the homes of various devotees,
    at different places. Sometimes, He told the devotee that he would come for lunch
    and this He did, but as a sadhu, fakir or an athiti (as any living creature). It was
    up to the devotee to recognize Him in that form and also to recognize Him in every
    form.

    Upasani was staying at Khandoba Mandir, Shirdi as per Baba's orders. Everyday,
    he cooked a meal and took it to Dwarkamai and offered it to Baba. One day,
    while he was cooking, he noticed a black dog watching him, prepare the food,
    with great eagerness. Upasani thought that it was absurd to give food to the dog,
    before offering it to Baba. The dog, however, followed him for quite a distance and
    then disappeared. Upon reaching the Dwarkamai, he offered the naivedya, and Baba
    said, "Why did you come all the way in this heat? I was there, watching and waiting
    for you to offer Me the food." Upasani was astonished to hear these words. Baba
     refused to accept the prasad.

    The next day, a sickly Shudra (low caste) was leaning against the wall watching him.
    He feared the "Drishti-Dosha" (evil eye) of a Shudra watching a Brahmin cook. So,
     he said, "Go away," and the man left. Again, Baba refused to accept the prasad.
    Upasani asked Him if He could have been the sickly beggar. Baba said, "I'm in
    everything and beyond." (Ref: Life of Sai Baba Vol.3)

    In Sai Satcharitra Ch. 40, Deo invited Baba to his home for the udyapan (concluding
    ceremony of a religious observance) ceremony and Baba agreed, saying that He
    would come with two others. On that day, a Bengali sanyasi and his two companions
    came and dined. Although Deo was very courteous and looked after them graciously,
    he failed to recognize Baba. He later wrote to Baba saying that he was disappointed
    at the breach of promise, as Baba did not attend the udyapan ceremony. Baba said,
    "Tell him, if he did not recognize Me, why did he invite Me ? Yet, I lunched at the function

    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!

    Once Nana arrived at Shirdi at about 12:00 noon and took
    Baba's darshan. Baba told Nana that He wanted to eat puran poli.
    Nana was reluctant at first, as it was way past 12:00 noon. He
    told Baba that he would offer it the next day. Baba wouldn't agree
    to this and told Nana, "No matter how long it takes, I want puran
    polis today." Nana went and searched for a lady who was willing to
    prepare them for Re. 1/- each. In the evening, he came to Dwarkamai
    with freshly prepared delicious puran poli and placed them before Baba.
    Baba, however didn't touch it, let alone, put a morsel in His mouth.
    After a while, He asked Nana to take it away as He had eaten.
    Nana was vexed to hear this, as Baba hadn't eaten it, after all
    the trouble he had taken to get them prepared. He went to the
    Chawdi in a huff. Baba called him and told him to eat it, as He
    had already partaken of it. This happened twice. Then, Baba said,
    "You have been with Me for more than eighteen years. What have
    you learnt from Me? I've eaten your puran poli in the form of ants."
    Nana wasn't convinced. Intellectually, he knew that Baba was
    everywhere and in everything. But, it was hard for him to accept it.
    Then, Baba made a sign to him, and that was a secret, deep in his
    heart that nobody knew about. Nana then realized that He was
    indeed in his aatma and the aatma of ants and every living creature.

    One day, Baba was extremely angry with Sagun Meru, when he went for His darshan.
    He scolded him and said that he hadn't followed His words. Perplexed, Sagun Meru
    wondered at what he had done wrong. Suddenly he realized that someone must
    be hungry. He went to the Wada and enquired if anyone had missed his or her
    meals. Two of the devotees hadn't eaten. So he invited them for meals and after
    they were satiated, he returned to the Dwarkamai. Baba smiled and said,
    "Have you understood the meaning of my words? Always act thus." Baba,
    by behaviour and conduct, taught the devotees that food is Brahma and that
    all living creatures experience the same hunger pangs. "Know that those who
    give food to one suffering the pangs of hunger , are really putting it in My mouth,
    and this is true everywhere," said Baba once to Laxmibai (Sai Satcharitra Ch. 42).

    In 1912, Pilaji Gurav was thirteen years old. Both his parents dreamt of Sai Baba. His mother had a vivid dream in which Baba gave her fifty paisa and asked her to keep with the rest of the coins in the prayer room. He also asked her for a torn piece of cloth to wear. His father, on the other hand, was asked by Baba to come and live in Shirdi. " There will be no dearth of food and clothing here," Baba assured him in his dream. Both the parents discussed their dreams and decided to go to Shirdi from Korala. At Rahata, they met the munim of Tatya Patil, who brought them to Shirdi.

    Tatya asked Gurav (Pilaji's father) to play the clarion, which he did; but Baba would often throw stones at him; though none of them ever hurt him. Gurav would run and Baba would run after him, shouting for him to stop. When he did. Baba caught hold of him by the collar and said, " / will bury both of you, father and son." Frightened out of his wits, he did not wish to face Baba again. Gurav used to play the clarion at the arati in Dixit Wada. When he went there for the arati, he opened his heart to Kaka and told him, how he feared Baba's wrath. Kaka gently reassured him "Gurav, do not fear Baba. He wants you to settle in Shirdi. This is a blessing in disguise", Kaka said.

    The next day, Gurav, with a smile played the clarion for Baba and Baba smiled benevolently. After this, he was a regular clarion player for Baba. His son got employment in Baba's Sansthan. The descendents of Pilaji Gurav still reside in Shirdi and have Baba's grace.

    BABA SAVED AND  HELPED SHRI KRISHNAJI  NARAYAN ALIAS CHOTTU BHAIYA SAHEB PARULKAROn one Mahasivarathri day Shri Krishnaji Narayan alias Chottu Bhaiya Saheb Parulkar went to Nemavaram along with his family in bullock cart for the darshan of Sri Siddhanath. They started at about 3 'O’ clock in the morning. On the way, the wheel of the cart dama¬ged and got repaired and went to Hadias from which place they have to cross the river by boat to go to the other bank of the river. As night came, the boat wala refused to take them to the other bank. They were ready even to offer the double boat charge to the boat wala. Even then he refused to take them as per his rules and regulations and added that if they want to go during night, special permission from his master is required. They decided to have shelter anywhere in the lemple nearby. At that time a Fakir came in white horse and with a tiny horse along with him and enqui¬red the man about the crossing of the river. The boat¬man refused to come as it was after sunset. The Fakir asked the boatman as to whom the place belonged. The boatman replied that it belonged to the British Empire and the other bank belonged to Holkar Sirkar (i.e.) the hereditary of Indore Raja. Then the Fakir went and asked Parulkar whether they too have to cross the river. He told "Yes" and their inability to cross the river by boat then. "I will just come with the nece¬ssary order from your Master to cross the river by boat and went away in his horse in such a manner as it trem¬bled the boat man. He came voluntarily and carried Parulkar, his men and his cart to the other side of the river in his boat. After they have started in the boat the Fakir disappeared. They have attended the Maha-sivaratri of Siddhanath and returned home safely by the grace of Shri Sai Baba.

    He walked with a limp and this bothered him a lot. Shankarlal K. Bhat owned a shop in Bombay. There he tried all kinds of treatments. But he still walked awkwardly. Then he heard of Baba's wonderful powers and how He cured many diseases. He came to Shirdi in 1911 and prostrated before Baba, received His blessings and left. On his return journey, he walked a few steps to catch the ferry when he felt something snap. He took another step and was delighted to notice that he walked erect. Lo! The limp was gone and gone forever. He was so pleased and grateful to Baba that he told each and every customer about Baba's superhuman powers.
