|| Aum Sai Ram || Aum Sai Para Brahmanaa Namah ||
Chapter XLIX – Preliminary
“The Vedas and the Puranas cannot sufficiently praise (describe) Brahma or Sadguru, then how can we, ignorant, describe our Sadguru Shri Sai Baba? We think that, it is better for us to keep quiet in this matter. In reality, the observance of the vow of silence is the best way of praising the Sadguru; but the good qualities of Sai Baba make us forget our vow of silence and inspire us to open our mouth. Tasteful dishes lose the taste, if there be no company of friends and relations to partake of the dishes with us, but when they join us, the dishes acquire additional flavour. The same is the case with the Sai Leelamrit – the nectar in the form of Sai’s Leelas. This nectar we cannot partake alone. Friends and brothers have to join us – the more the better.
It is Sai Baba Himself that inspires these stories and gets them written as He desires. Our duty is to surrender completely to Him and meditate on Him. Practising penance is better than pilgrimage, vow, sacrifice, and charity. Worshipping Hari (Lord) is better than penance, and meditation on the Sadguru is the best of all. We have, therefore, to chant Sai’s name by mouth, think over His sayings in our mind, meditate on His form, feel true love for Him in our heart and do all our actions for His sake. There is no better means than this for snapping the bondage of this Sansar. If we can do our duty on our part as stated above, Sai is bound to help and liberate us.”
