17. Sai’s Ankita Child

I implored Sai,
To save me from the vicissitudes of life
To give me more and more
To make my life comfortable, respectable and easy
With a place of dignity in society.
Sai smiled and said:
The other day you asked Me
Th give you my ‘ananya bhakti’
To fill your heart with love and compassion,
To enable you become My ‘Ankita’ Child
Do you know?

One cannot be a bhakta
Unless he imbibes all virtues in life.
One cannot be a rich man
It his heart if filled with love and compassion
For he shall then learn
To share his wealth with others
And never be able to accumulate

If one is compassionate
He would not care for his own comforts
The concern of the less fortunate, the neglected and the poor
Will become his own.

I leave the choice to you
To decide what you wish to ask from me
My bhakti, my love, my compassion
Or the pleasures and comforts of life
The choice is yours
But do not try to rid
Both horses together
And deceive your own self

Let me assure you
If you choose the path of bhakti
You shall have to make sacrifices
At every step of life
But then,
The responsibility for your well being
Shall entirely become mine
And you might then, become entitled
To call yourself my ‘Ankita’ Child.

18. Make Me to Fade as a Child

I came into this wide world
Like a child.
During the whole of my life
I might have endeavoured to play
ome child like pranks here and there
But as the child soon returns to its natural Self
Make me to return to my original state of a child
I implore you, O’ My Baba.
Very man y years spent on this Mother Earth
Seem to have taken me nowhere.

Oh! What a bliss it is
To live like a child
And leave all one’s burdens on Him
Who has undertaken to bear them
The one who has experienced
The divine ecstasy the surrender bestows
Knows the sublime heights
It takes one to.

I pray to you my Baba
To let this physical frame
Face into oblivion,
Like a child
As it came.
