|| Aum Sai Ram || Aum Sai Para Brahmanaa Namah ||
Chapter XXV – Preliminary
“We begin this Chapter with a prostration, with all our eight limbs, to Sai Baba, Who is an Ocean of Mercy, the God incarnate, the Para Brahma and the great Yogeshwara (Lord of Yoga). Victory be unto Sai Baba, Who is the crest-jewel of the Saints, an Adobe of all auspicious things, our Atmaram (Self), and the sole refuge of the devotees. We prostrate ourselves before Him, Who has attained the aim and end of life.
Sai Baba is always full of mercy. What is wanted on our part, is whole-hearted devotion to Him. When a devotee has got firm faith and devotion, his wishes are soon fulfilled. When the desire arose in the mind of Hemadpant to write the life and Leelas of Sai Baba, He immediately got it written by him. When the order ‘to keep the memos’ was given, Hemadpant was inspired and his intellect got strength and boldness to undertake and finish the work. He was not as he says, qualified to write the work but the gracious blessings of Baba enabled him to complete the undertaking and thus, you have this Satcharita, which is a cistern, or a Somakant jewel, from which nectar, in the form of Sai Leelas, oozes out for the readers to drink to their heart’s content.
Whenever, a devotee had complete and whole-hearted devotion to Sai Baba, all his calamities and dangers were warded off and his welfare attended to by Baba.”
