The designers of Sai Yug Network have designed unique and fresh images of Sai Baba with the quote “Anant Koti Brahmand Nayak Raja Dhi Raj Yogi Raj ParaBrahm Shri Sachchidanand Sathguru Sainath Ki Jai” in Tamil, Kannada, Telugu, Hindi and of course English only for our readers. Please consider downloading and sharing the images with your family and friends on social media.
Before we proceed with the post, let us imagine we are in Samadhi Mandir participating in Madhyayan Arti. What a blissful atmosphere it feels. The praises of Sai Baba through the words of Artis is making them bloom. Sai Baba calmly sat on His throne and casting loving glances at all of us. The glow of the sequins on His dress with the lights falling on them is radiating Baba’s smiling face. The instruments playing at the tune of the arti are adding energy for the words to flow in our veins. Looking at other devotees, we feel that each one of us is in trance. Being in this ecstatic state, we did not realize when the arti was over and the Jaykara “Anant Koti Brahmand Nayak Raja Dhi Raj Yogi Raj Para Brahm, Shri Sachchhidanand Sathguru Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai” fills us in and out. The visibly experienced goosebumps are a sign of ecstasy making its way all over the body.
Let us now go back to the times of Baba and imagine the same phenomenon. We are standing in Dwarkamai among other prominent devotees. Sai Baba sitting and leaning on the railing of the upper pavement and watching all of us. His loving glances and chorus of the artis mixed with the musical instruments is making the whole Dwarkamai lit with lamps of love during the daytime. The luster on Baba’s face is at its peak. The Jaykara is a goosebumps moment. There is a longing for the arti to get over and wait for the Prasad on Baba’s command. However, the Jaykara is filling up the atmosphere with serenity. It praises our Baba and shows us His true form.
So let’s hold on for a moment to think what is the meaning of this Jaykara and this is the topic of today’s post.
Let us see the meaning of each word.
|Anant||which has no end, infinite, which is nothing but “Parabrahma”|
|Brahmand Nayak||King of Brahmand i.e. King of Universe|
|Raja Dhi Raj||King of Kings|
|Yogi Raj||ing among the Yogis|
|Parabrahm||The One Who has attained the state of Consciousness, the Parabrahm itself!|
|Shri||Salutations with respect|
|Sachchidanand||Sat – the absolute truth every moment, Chitt – Consciousness, Anand – Bliss|
|Sathguru||The Absolute Guru|
Above was the literal translation of the words of this hymn. However, we are not just going to discuss its literal meaning but would try to find out and understand by this that Who is Sai Baba. In a nutshell, the essence of this Jayakara is our Sathguru Shirdi Sai Baba is Parabrahm itself. We are praising that form of Baba Which is difficult to understand and comprehend. He came to us in bodily form to help us understand this fact with His parables and miracles. The one who is the true son of his mother, will understand and take away cartloads of wisdom and knowledge. Though this goes for biological mother, we consider Him as our Maai-Baap and we are His kids. So we going to take away cartloads of knowledge that He has bestowed on us in order to reach Him.
With a reference to Bhagavad Gita let us conclude this post.
“अनादित्वान्निर्गुणत्वात्परमात्मायमव्यय: | शरीरस्थोऽपि कौन्तेय न करोति न लिप्यते ||”— Bhagavad Gita Chapter 13, Verse 32
Translation as it is:
|anāditvāt||being without beginning|
|nirguṇatvāt||being devoid of any gross qualities|
|śharīra-sthaḥ||dwelling in the body|
|kaunteya||Arjuna, the son of Kunti|
Interpretation: The Supreme Soul, the Paramatma is eternal, without beginning, and devoid of any gross materialistic qualities, Oh son of Kunti, although situated within the body, It neither acts, nor is It tainted by material energy
