|| Aum Sai Ram || Aum Sai Para Brahmanaa Namah ||
God was originally formless. He assumed a form for the sake of Bhaktas. With the help of Maya, He played the part of an Actor in the big drama of the Universe. Let us remember and visualize Shri Sai. Let us go to Shirdi, and see carefully the programme, after the noon-Arati.
After the Arati ceremony was over, Sai used to come out of the Masjid, and standing on its edge, distribute Udi to the devotees with very kind, gracious and loving looks. The Bhaktas also got up with equal fervour, clasped His Feet, and had the bliss of Udi. Baba passed handfuls of Udi into the palms of the devotees and marked their foreheads with Udi with His own hands. The love He bore for them in His heart, was boundless. Then He addressed the Bhaktas, “Oh Bhau, go home to take your lunch, you Anna, go to your lodgings, you Bapu, enjoy your meal.”
In this way, He accosted each and every devotee and sent them home. Even now you can have the pleasure of these sights, if you bring into play your imagination. Now, bringing Sai in our mental vision, let us meditate on Him, from His Feet upwards to His face, prostrating yourself before Him humbly, lovingly and reverentially.
