31. Sai You are Naughty Indeed

Sai! You are naughty indeed
You keep on playing pranks on your devotees
And enjoy the fun out of it,
This was your habit
While you moved on earth in flesh and blood
Haven’t you given up yet?

Your first provide to your devotees
Beautiful toys to play with.
By fulfilling their worldly demands
You fill their hearts with gratitude
And when they feel attracted towards you
You inspire them to build a temple of your
Make them move heaven and earth
To achieve their aim.

When the temple gets ready
The bhakta feels extremely blissful
Looking at your idol installed in the temple
And then witin no time
You create a situation for him
When he is forced to quit the temple.

You do not want your true bhaktas
To remain involved in the affair of the temple
And making him to leave the temple
Inspire him to proceed ahead
On the path of bhakti
Of love, of sacrifice, of faith and renuniciation
But leave within him pangs
Of being forced to leave the temple

Slowly but steadily
He treads the path of bhakti
In an endeavour
To become your ‘ankita’ child

What is this game you play?
And what do you gain by it?
Sai! You are naughty indeed.

32. The Straying Mind

Sai! Why do you keep on peeping Into my inner self every moment
And control the process of my thinking.

I came into your ‘Sharan’
To enjoy the pleasure of life
Shouldn’t you sometimes leave me alone
To act according to my wishes.
All the while you keep on putting checks on me
Is this any life?
Sai! I know
The moment you let loose your control
The vagabond mind will go stray
You know full well
This nature of the mind.

I had taken to you
With the intention of earning
Name, fame, wealth and respect
I never knew
You shall become the stumbling stone of my path
Why should you be so harsh on your devotees
You must sometimes allow your children
To do what they wish.

I am, however, conscious
You are deeply concerned about my welfare
When I have caught hold of your hand
How on earth would you allow me
To slip out of your control
All the time you remain worried
For my welfare
But what shall I do with this mind
Which keeps on seeking ways to stray
But Baba I implore you
To stop this tendency of the mind to stray
Then,
The very cause to grumble
Shall cease to exist.
