|| Aum Sai Ram || Aum Sai Para Brahmanaa Namah ||
“The life of Sai Baba is as wide and deep as the infinite ocean; and all can dive deep into the same and take out precious gems (of Knowledge and Bhakti) and distribute them to the aspiring people. The stories, parables, and teachings of Sai Baba are very wonderful. They will give peace and happiness to the people, who are afflicted with sorrows and heavily loaded with miseries of this worldly existence, and also bestow knowledge and wisdom, both in the worldly and in spiritual domains.
If these teachings of Sai Baba, which are as interesting and instructive as the Vedic lore, are listened to and meditated upon, the devotees will get, what they long for, viz., union with Brahman, mastery in eight-fold Yoga, Bliss of meditation etc. So I thought that I should collect these stories together, that would be my best Upasana.
This collection would be most delightful to those simple souls, whose eyes were not blessed with Sai Baba’s darshan. So, I set about collecting Sai Baba’s teachings and expressions – the outcome of His boundless self-realization. It was Sai Baba, who inspired me in this matter; in fact, I surrendered my ego at His feet, and thought that my path was clear; and that He would make me quite happy here, and in the next world.”
