4. Learn to withdraw yourself occasionally inward, for your shall then be able to control the wastage of your own energies, make a correct assessment of your own self, control your emotions and mind and not allow them to stray.

5. Accept responsibility gladly and try to discharge it to your capacity, for the sense of satisfaction it shall provide you will give you ‘Atmic Anand’.

6. Trace out the beauty in each soul, you come into contact with, appreciate it for it shall make your own life happy, easy and smooth at every step.

9. Learn to share your joys with others, for they are no other than your ownself. It will add to the sublimity of your own life and make your living joyous.

4. Devotional Couplets

  • To the one whose name is Sai And whose abode is Shirdi To such an all pervading Sai I offer my salutations again and again.
  • The one in whose heart dwells Sai And whose body is engaged in His service To such a great devotee I offer my salutations again and again.
  • Many claim to be Sai’s form But Sai is one and one alone To my Master Sai Nath I bow my head in revereance
  • I pray to my Baba Sai To give me the boon of Bhakti To bestow on me the purity of heart and mind And lift me up to His bosom
  • Indulge not in hard penances needlessly Causing discomfort to your body Having complete faith in Baba Cross the ocean of life.
  • While living in this world Ask not from Sai wealth, progeny and position Ask from Him only that supreme wealth Which Sai wishes to bestow on you.
  • O’ my mind grieve not unnecessarily Giving up all hopes and aspirations When Sai is with you Why frustrations should affect you.
  • The body shall perish tomorrow Know it as an eternal truth Do not feel proud of it Surrender yourself to Sai
  • When you came into this world You came empty handed When you leave this world Take Sai’s ‘Kripa’ with you.
  • It is Baba’s promise to you Have complete faith in it “One who gets lost in Me All his difficiulties end”
  • Sai you are my master I am Your ‘Das’ Life after life I may remain Your ‘Das’ It is my request to You
Thus says ‘Das Suresh’, O Baba! Confer on me this boon. From every pore of my body should emnate your name. wherever I move in this wide world, with your name on the lips, the fragrance of your Bhakti should engulf the whole atmosphere.

Whosoever inhales that fragrance, should start chanting your name. that Sai is a great Saint, should start flowing incessantly from His being.

Sai! You are unique indeed, since you make the dumb to speak, I am a mere fool who is not aware of your infinite powers.

Taking me as an ignorant child provide me ‘Sharan’ at your lotus feet. Life after life I may remain your ‘Das’, is my request to you.

  1. Total Surrender to Saibaba.

    All human beings are the beautiful flowers raised in the garden of God. He is their Protector. Baba used to tell that He incarnated on the Earth to promote our material and spiritual well-being. Hence, whatever actions or duties we perform, they should be offered to Baba in word, spirit and deed. This is known as complete surrender. Every minute we need to meditate on Baba in our heart. If we could put into practice Baba's words, He would definitely make a place for us in His heart. We have to believe in Baba as our everything and live in His Light.On one occasion, a Swami from Alandi approached Baba with a severe ear-ache and sought His blessings. In spite of undergoing an operation, he found no relief. Baba blessed him assuring, "Allah Achha karega", that 'God would cure him'. Keeping faith in Baba's words, he returned to Pune and within a week the pain miraculously cured. It is all due to his complete surrender and faith that his ear -ache vanished by the Grace of Baba. Whatever work we do, we should think of Baba and feel that it is Baba who works through us. There should be no feeling of "I" or "mine", except a conscious feeling that it is done as per His Will. Then, there is no possibility of making a mistake. Moreover, the ego sense that, "I am doing" would get erased. We have to seek His protection by our total surrender to Him.
