I have just one Desire, to see devotees engrossed in Sai Baba’s leelas. Sai Baba is everywhere, He is omnipresent. There is truly only one religion despite all the different religions, He is the one God. That phenomenon does not happen anywhere else… People say, “I am Hindu… I am Christian… I am Muslim…” Sai Baba is beyond religion. Therefore, accept all religions, and acknowledge and revere all forms of God Sai Baba is your one God Worship Him, and in Him you will see all the deities. Do not criticise anyone. These three are poisons: Anger, Greed, and Criticism. If you give up these three vices once and for all, Sai Baba will come close to you. It is important to give up Anger. Get rid of the habit of criticising others, and get rid of Greed of all kinds. Then Sai Baba will become very close to you. Questioning when and how it will happen is a mistake. Do your Japa (I am not saying you should stop that), but if you get rid of these three things in your life, Baba Himself will come to you and communicate with you. The way he communicates with me, he will communicate with you too. I do not claim that I am a special devotee of Sai Baba’s. I had a lot of desires earlier… to wear orange-coloured sarees, saffron-coloured sarees… Over time, as my devotion increased, all these desires fell away. Sometimes if the desire arises, I wear an orange or a saffron saree, if there isn’t one, then any other simple saree will do just as well. (It does give us joy when we wear different clothes.) Don’t ever put down any person or religion; you do your Sadhana. Your sadhana and your path is the same, and it is the same Sai Baba towards whom you have to go. He is the culmination of all paths and religions. We differentiate, judge and criticise: “This one is Christian”, “that one is Hindu”… that’s not right. Nobody is a bad person, no one is born bad. In time, with conditioning, these three poisons consume an individual, and then he becomes bad (immoral). So instead of criticising someone, rather do whatever you can to turn them on the path of righteousness, and make them good human beings. Even an enemy can become a friend, remember. And if you wish, you can read Sai Baba’s pothis (divine leelas, Satcharita) That is all I do. Do you know what my savings are in the Bank? It’s Sai Baba’s pothi. Reading my pothi everyday is adding savings to my account, and my banker is Sai Baba. And if I don’t read my pothi, I go mad! These are my life savings that will be carried forward; you could do that as well. Don’t get distracted or talk to anyone while doing your sadhana, no matter who comes near you. Stay in silence and do your practice. Once it’s done, you can engage with people and do your work. That is the time you should observe Mauna (silence). So you can do it that way…. Bhakti is a powerful force or Power. Keep doing your bhakti and you will be infused with Shakti. Look at me, I am a foolish woman… Who has given me Shakti (power)? Who else but Sai Baba? And my own shakti is reducing,
I’ve been talking so much… So my salutations to you and I will stop now… …. all my rambling ….
