Happy New Year with Warmful Wishes from Devotees Experiences with Shirdi Sai Baba
Prayer to Lord Sai Baba
Sai grant us this year a wider view,
So we see others’ faults through the eyes of You;
Teach us to judge not with hasty tongue,
Neither the adult … nor the young.
Give us patience and grace to endure
And a stronger faith so we feel secure;
And instead of remembering, help us forget
The irritations that caused us to fret.
Freely forgiving for some offense
And finding each day a rich recompense,
In offering a friendly, helping hand
And trying in all ways to understand,
That all of us whoever we are …
Are trying to reach an unreachable star
For the great and small …
the good and bad,
The young and old … the sad and glad,
Are asking today; Is life worth living?
And the answer is only in loving and giving;
For only Love can make man kind
And Kindness of Heart brings Peace of Mind,
And by giving love we can start this year
To lift the clouds of hate and fear.
I received a mail from Sai brother Sukant who wants to share his views as produced below:
This is for all my Saibandhus all over the world. By the blessings of BABA I, wanted to share my thoughts in your blog on the value of Goodness that we all should lead, despite unfavourable circumstances covering us all around. I, was able to write only and only because of the inspiration of our beloved Sainath. Please, do share these with every one in our Sai family. May Sainath Bless every one with Peace, prosperity and happiness.
Starting this year by breaking the Rules on your “Not Possible List Chart”. To succeed its so very important to break the rules. Leave, past the Blind Man’s buff of being too judgmental. As the saying goes. The experience around us is just the mere refection of the Attitude of our minds.
Let the New Year Bring Goodness in all of us: Goodness in the form of being good to people of any kind.
Goodness in the form of giving that helping hand when someone is desperately in need of it.
Goodness in the form of removing the distinction of our status, to embrace our own fellow beings.
Goodness in the form of respect which we give others and not hoping anything in return.
Goodness in the form of modesty which will always remind us that, what we have today will not be there tomorrow.
Goodness in the form of generosity to give our best wishes to those whom we even dislike.
Goodness in the form of forgiveness, to forgive and let go those who didn’t value us for the persons we are.
Goodness in the form of loving our loved ones who had been with us all the time when we actually needed them the most.
Goodness in the form of being true to ourselves, so that we don’t feel ashamed of who we are and what we are.
Goodness in the form of being moral, so that may whatever the circumstances be, we continue to remain Rock Steady.
Goodness in the form of being honest even though we see ourselves surrounded by thieves and dishonest people.
Goodness in the form of doing our level best of what little we can do for others.
Goodness in the form of being a plodder and never never never ever give up for the dreams that we wanna achieve, how ever difficult it may be.
Having such goodness, is just absolutely free of cost in this expensive world and can be distributed and multiplied all around us, which will just result in more Goodness. While, it will be most surprising that such goodness already resides in us which can break the bowels of the inhuman which is ruling us in today’s era.
May the Goodness with in us bring a New Beginning from this Year and set the world free of its slavery to terrorism, violence, hatred, jealousy and differentiation, which has made us fall to the level of beasts. All what is so critical is to change ourselves to the path of Goodness, instead of pointing fingers on others. Change, in ourselves will bring the change in the world by itself.
Wishing you and your families a Wonderful, Peaceful, Joyous, Glorious and above all a Year Full of Goodness…..2 0 1 2…..
Om Sai Ram,
Your Humble Brother
