Adored by billions worldover -Sai Baba.
The incredible saint of His time and adored by the billions around the globe as the undisputed God who walked , talked and served the poorest of the poor on this earth once, attained Samadhi on October 15th 1918 on the pious Day of Vijaydashmi at his most adored abode called Dwarka Maayi in Shirdhi, Maharashtra. Sai Babal’s miraculous deeds, leelaas and magical ways to genuinely impress his devotees are innumerous and hunderds of books have been authored by his ardent desciples to disseminate valuable informations, developments and happening during His life time so that his followers can remember Baba more reverrently and with immense ammount of devotion and dedication. Sai Baba of Shirdhi was such a phenomenal personality, an unparalleled saint and historic legend that eminent writer who had been in journalism for more than 40 years viz. Mr. Rangaswamy Parthasarthi , a committed Sai devotee has authored an excellent book on Sai Baba’s life in the year 1996, highlighting various facets of Baba’s multidimensional personality and detailed significance of His most valuable and precious teachings. In this article I would like to describe few miracles of Sai Baba written by Mr. Rangachari in one of the chapters of his pious book titled God who once walked on earth. The author has very nicely and ably portrayed certain incidents of Baba’s magical miracles which had not only surprised his devotees but compelled them to consider Baba as the ultimate God. This incident refers to the day when Sai Baba breathed His last and attained Samadhi. Sai Baba breathed his last on 15th October 1918 leaning on the shoulders of a devotee who did not realise that Baba has shed his mortal coil until few minutes later. It was the second time Baba has died, apparently this time for good. He had left the body once before in 1886 and like the Resurrection of Christ returned three days after making everybody in and around Shridhi shocked about this unbelievable event. However, while Christ sacrificed his life on the cross, Baba left the body voluntarily on his own, after assuring his devotees that he’ll definitely come back.
The story of this unbelievable but the factual incident was expressed to his son, Martand, by Mahalsapathy. According to Martand who recorded the episode in his memoirs of his father, one day in 1886 Baba came to Mahalsapathy and said,” Arre Bhagat,( as Baba used to call him), I am going to Allah. You had better guard this body for three days. If I return thereafter, I will get into the body for sure. If I don not you may thereafter have the body interred in that place”( pointing to the place near the neem tree where he used to meditate). Baba then reclined on Mhalsapathy’s shoulders and soon gave up breathing i.e. ceased to breathe. Body heat dissappeared and the colour of the body turned livid. Baba was dead. He was no more.
Soon the news spread like a wild fire and the village officials and the police arrived at the mosque, the Dwarkamayee. An inquest was held and Baba was certified officially dead. The police asked Mahalsapathy to bury the body as it should not remain in the mosque. Mahalsapathy told them what Baba has said him and added that he would wait for another three days as instructed by Baba, come what may. The police failed to persuade him to change his mind. He told them that Baba was a yogi with womderful and exceptional powers and it was possible for him to reappear alive in three days. Mahalsapathy won his point and he was allowed to retain the body which he protected with the help of other devotees.
After three days they noticed that suddenly a finger of Baba’s body moved, then his eyes opened. The next minute Baba mysteriously rose up and sat in his usual way and looked around. The resurrection was complete and Baba was back among his devotees, alive and kicking. For the last three days of Baba’s death the residents of Shirdhi has not taken their meals and were regularly praying to God for Baba’s reappearence in the physical form, which ultimately happened to the utter surprise and shock of everyone present there. To the end of His life, therafter, Baba never spoke of this incident nor does it appear that any devotee questioned him ever about it. The devotees must have taken it for granted. For anythng was possible for the saint of Baba’s stature and unique capabilities. What is surprising is that it did not obviousy produce any reaction amongst the government officials, both at the ;lower and the higher levels. The fact of Baba’s death must have gone into the village records but was it changed when Baba returned to life physically? Official apathy and the lack of curiosity was in line with the spirit of the times when people led the life of poverty and misery not questioning anything. But we, living in a scientific age, have to ask the question, how did he do it, why did he do it? Where was he in those three days? And finally, why and how did he come back? A dead body gets disintegrated and decayed within a matter of hours and begins to stink but in the case of Baba his body was well preserved and in good condition when life returned to it. This is a miracle which we have read in the Puranasand mythologies but that it happened in real life in the presence of reliable witneses is hard to believe but an inescapable fact. The questions will remain unanswered like so many other curious questions about Baba’s life.
Baba usually used a particular phrase to describe Death. He called it,” the crossing of the frontier”. When one of his deciple Reghe’s child died and his wife became inconsolable and Rege had the dead child on his lap, Baba appeared before him and asked, “Do you want me or a dead child? If you want me to revive the child, I will, but then you will have me no more with you. If you do not want it to be revived you will have many more children in the due course.” Rege later said he told Baba that he wanted HIM. ” Then do not grieve, ” said Baba and disappeared.
Baba did revive a dead person on two occassions. The first was during his stay with his guru, Venkasu, when a disgruntled disciple who tried to harm the Guru and Baba himself fell dead and the other desciples pleaded with the guru to revive him. The guru said he had transferred all his powers to the young Baba and it was for him to revive the dead man. The desciple then prayed to Sai Baba , who uttering his guru’s name touched the man’s body and it surprisingly came to life. On the other occassion, Malanbai, the daughter of one DR Joshi Devgaonkar, died of tuberculosis, as during those days there was no medical treatment for this desease and was considered as one of the most untouchable and contagious , even worst then leprosy. Just before her sad end the girl had asked her parents to be taken to Shirdi and placed before Sai Baba. Baba asked her to lie down on the balanket and take nothing but water. She carefully followed these instructions but unfortunately after a week she died early in the morning. Baba was then in the chavdi and for the first time he did not leave the chavdi though it was past 8.00 AM. The girls parent with a most distressed and heavy heart were making necessary preparations to remove the body for the funeral when suddenly they saw that Malanbai was breathing. She then opened her eyes and looked around. Then she said under curiosity that A black person was carrying her away. She being very frightened cried out for Sai Baba’s help. Baba thereafter took out his stick and gave that blackman (Yamraaj) a severe beating. He snatched me away from him and carried me to the chavdi.” She had not seen the chavadi before but gave the correct description of it. Just at this time Baba left the chawdi bawling out and stamping the ground with His stick, He came to Dikshit’s house where the girl’s body had been kept.
There are several other instances that surprise each and every Sai devotee of Baba’s extraordinary feats, miracles. magical acts and his immense power of bringing the dead to life . He is in true sense a true and real incarnation of Lord Shiva, Ram, Krishna and Lord Vishnu. Sai Baba’s blessings and divinity lead everyone to the real path of ultimate salvation. I think myself extremely lucky to be able to contribute my bit in His Lordships service by compiling articles and tits and pieces to disseminate Baba’s valuable sermons and actual happennings to the masses through Sai Sagar. Blessed are those who are lucky to be in Sai Baba’s service and in the service of the humanity at His behest. Lets end this by What Sai baba said once
Mombatti jalti hai to dhire-dhire galti rehati hai aur ek din kahtam ho jaati
ussi tarah ye matti ka tan bhi karam karte hue ek na ek din khatam ho jayega.
iss ke prrati moh karna vyarth hai isliye karam karo warna ye zivan bekar ho jayega
agar mombatti sahi jagha jalayi jaye yani andhere me roshni karne hetu to ye sarthak hai
agar wohi mombatti suraj ke tej pakash me jalye to uska jalna vayarth hai
iss deh ko bhi sahi karmo me lagaye,warna sab khaatam ho jayega.

Gemmology: A Myth or Science??
Gemmology is considered as geoscience and classified under mineralogy.
Few jewellers are academically skilled gemmologists and are trained to classify and evaluate various gemstones. Although there is no theory regarding the subsequent impact of the gemstones on the wearer, however, there are certain factors that help in improving an individual’s life if worn with faith and belief.
According to science, planets in our solar system continuously emit positive as well as negative magnetic vibes or energies. Additionally, Vedic astrology explains how these vibrations influence our lives for good or bad. It also claims that the stones and plants on earth can help us to face these changes.
The science: Planets radiate their energy waves and influence through colour. The astrological pull of gemstones originates from the cosmic influences of their associated ruling planets. The sunlight, through a prism, splits into a seven-colour spectrum, however, the spectrum also includes infra and ultraviolet, the other two invisible colours. These 9 colours are associated with 9 planets and each of 9 planets emits certain radiations that impact human beings; as per their positions at the time of birth. Some planets have a strong influence on our lives, while others have a weak influence.
In a nutshell, gemstones are a way of transferring positive energies of pure natural colours to our body, which balance out the negative energies.
As per Vedic science, there are seven planets (grahas): Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn. Additionally, there are two more shadow planets (chaayaa grahas): Rahu and Ketu. Rahu and Ketu are mathematical points and are considered as the north and south nodes or the head and tail of the dragon. Let’s check out various gemstones and associated ruling planets and moon signs.

The different gemstone has a different effect on the human being depending upon the planetary position of the horoscope. However, it is extremely important that you should consult an astrologer for the correct analysis and prescription of the gemstone so that you can reap the maximum beneficial result.
Tributes to Sai Baba/A true symbol of secular values and service to the poor/ 97th Salvation anniversary
Why do Hindus worship idols when God told us he is everywhere?
Once Swami Vivekananda visited King of Alwar in present day Rajasthan. The king in an attempt to mock idol worship told Swamiji, “I’ve no faith in idol worship. How can one worship stone, wood and metal? I believe people are in illusion and just wasting time!”.
Swamiji smiled. He asked the king’s assistant to take down the picture of the king that was hanging on the wall. Although confused, the assistant did so. Then Swamiji ordered him, “Spit on the picture!”. The assistant was shocked and looked at both of them. Swami repeated again and again, becoming more stern each time. The king was growing angry and the assistant started trembling. Finally, he cried out, “How can I spit on this? This picture is of our beloved and respected king!”.Swamiji then told him, “The king is sitting in front of you in person. This picture is merely a paper – it does not speak, hear, think or move. But still you did not spit because you see a shadow of your king in it, Spitting on it was like spitting on the king itself.” The king looked at Swamiji and bowed down, clearly understanding what he was referring to.This is the essence of idol worshiping. God is everywhere, but people want to pray to Him, ask favors, offer food, tell stories, bathe Him, play with Him and do what they do in their lives. Creating a human-like idol creates an image of God as a companion, a guide, a friend, a protector, a giver, a fellow being and so on. An idol is just a concrete representation where they find Him. When I look into the eyes of an idol, I do not see stone or metal, but another pair of eyes looking affectionately at me, smiling.
Know your best food vis-a-vis Zodiac sign….
Yess, your sign can guide you on your food habits. And why not? — If your zodiac sign can impact on your personality traits and compatibility score then why not it also determine which foods are best for you? I looked through few websites, and here presenting a compilation of all that I found.

Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Same as fire, the signs under this category are dynamic, passionate, and temperamental. As we all know, fire can provide us warmth, or it can lead to destruction, similarly all fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) should be taken care and handled carefully.
Food mantra: Don’t Burn Yourself Out
Eat: They should eat food that will keep their body cool and soothe their kidneys and liver. Best food list includes brown rice, fruit juices, bananas, olives, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, spinach, cauliflower, radishes, beans, broccoli, lentils, walnuts, pumpkin, figs, garlic, dried apricots and mustard.
Avoid: Aries people are prone to heartburn and indigestion issues. So, they should avoid hot and spicy foods. They should also stay away from too much of salt and alcohol.
Eat: Leos always need plenty of carbs to energize their hectic lives. So, a low or no carb diet is ruled out. Their nervous systems and hearts functions best when healthy food items are added into their list including rice, whole grains, citrus fruits, peaches, apples, root vegetables (e.g., carrots, potatoes and radishes), broccoli, spinach, bitter greens (e.g., mustard greens and kale), nuts, sunflower seeds, almonds and figs.

Air signs signify ideas, action, and motion. They are the winds of change i.e when a strong gust of air hits these people, they can’t help but move. Air signs bring a breath of fresh air when things start to get stale. Like the air, they are beyond your reach. Although, being with them is always an adventure.
Food mantra: Go Nuts

So, they should eat green beans, plums, peaches, spinach, shellfish, broiled fish, and wild rice to maintain their nerves in order.

Now your pets will ask you, “What’s Your Raashi?”
I remember, at office, while chit chatting over a coffee a topic of spouse or life partner came, and suddenly, someone said it’s better to have a pet than a partner. Everyone laughed.
Later, I read somewhere, now day’s people also assess the compatibility of pet according their zodiac sign. Isn’t it interesting?
Like we search for compatibility in our partners, we should not overlook the same while selecting a pet. This might sound a bit funny but even the Hindu Puranas and Vedas have considered these animals as a sign of fortune, good luck, wealth and well-being. So, let’s find out which pet suits you best as per your zodiac.
Aries personality traits include adventurous, courageous and high energy level. The perfect match is none other than a Dog; ideally a Labrador. They are dynamic and accommodating, and abhor mundane lifestyle; simply like a genuine Arian!
Taureans are reliable and patient. They are affectionate and only connect with people, they are comfortable with. So, a cute cat is best for this zodiac’s pet companion. These feline species love to adore and shower their affection to their masters.
Geminians are quite communicative and lively. They love to explore the world with their wings. Nothing would match their spirits better than a parrot. This chatty and intelligent pet brings prosperity and wealth to home.
Cancerians are sensitive and emotional. They also have raging mood-swings. A hamster pet is a bang on to match this fragile zodiac. These are loveable, delicate and cuddly. Also they would always be by their owner’s side.
People with Leo sign loves magnificence, so only a royal pet will satisfy them. They would love to keep a Lion as a pet; a horse is their second choice. The animal is loyal, regal, and fierce that exactly matches a typical Leo in all possible way.
A Virgo is a shy and modest by nature, even fussy and finicky at times. So, a pet who expresses its affection through mess is definitely not a good option for a freaky Virgo! Hence, fishes would be a perfect choice. They need minimum care and never create disturbance at home.
Librans are known for balance in almost everything, Librans are charming, urbane, and sociable. They are fond of beauty around them. So, it is obvious for them to have an attractive pet such as a Russian Blue or white Persian cat. These pets bring prosperity and good luck with them.
A Scorpion admires for being determined and unique. Their zodiac symbol itself is scary; hence these people would never like a gentle and homely pet. They would prefer for a pet who keeps all negative energies away and all people from barging into their lives. Hence, a snake and a scorpion invite good luck for them.
Sagittarians love their independence and freedom, and do not prefer to be pushed around. They are fond of traveling and would never like a pet that needs regular attention and care. So, a pet like a turtle or a fish that requires a minimum care would be a perfect option for them. These pets fend off negative energy.
They are reserved, disciplined, and hard working people. They prefer to pet bigger animals, so cows are best choice of pet for them. Cows repel the affect of a malefic planetary motion.
Aquarians do not prefer to be restricted by responsibility of a pet. However, if given a chance, they would prefer to raise a pair of ‘love birds’. These birds bring stability and boost love life and good luck.
Pisceans are sensitive, selfless, devoted and unworldly. So, a cute furry rabbit would be a perfect match for a Piscean. The soft and cuddly pet would connect with them with pure love and affection.

Three signs that bad luck would chase you even after death
Chanakya was the World’s best Acharya who is praised for his great knowledge, political treatise, Arthashastra and Chankakya niti. He was a pioneer in the field of politics and economics.
He told that all our actions and karmas repent after life and are also reflected after life. So we should very well take care of or actions and try to do as many good things in our life so that we do not have to worry after life and in the coming future because our actions leads to all the situations.
Chankaya clearly told that separation from spouse in old age shows that you are having a bad luck because in the old age emotional connect is the only thing which motivates the old age couple as there is no physical attraction and people have two emotional points in their life, one in childhood and another in old age.
First: In old age husband and wife becomes dependent on each other so in old age if the death separates you from your spouse then it is considered as a sign of bad luck.
Second: Depending on someone for livelihood is also considered as the bad luck so it is our body and will power and knowledge that make you self- dependent.
And if a healthy person is dependent on others due to circumstances for livelihood then it is a sign of bad luck hovering them. In other words it is also considered that the universal energies are pushing that person towards misfortune after death.
Third: When someone takes away the rewards which you deserve

Never offer these five things to Lord Shiva
If Lord Shiva is your deity then maybe you must be aware what all can be offered to him so that he becomes happy and shower his blessings. But there are five things which cannot be offered to him.
According to Hindu culture Shivlinga should not be placed where it is not regularly worshiped with proper rituals because it will show disrespect to his Shiva and he may get angry. Anyways Lord Shiva is known for his innocence and also called Bholenath and because of this he may get pleased in no time but on the same hand we should not forget that he gets very angry if something wrong is done while worshiping him.
So we all know that Lord Shiva live a simple life on Kailash Mountain and if you want to please him then you should offer milk, Sandalwood, Dhatura, Bael leaves, Bhang and bhasma.
According to Shivpuran, a devotee should never offer below five things otherwise he or she will have to bear the dreaded consequences.
First: Ketaki Flowers
One day Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma were fighting to prove their supremacy among the divine and when they were just to use the deadly weapons Lord Shiva appeared in the form of Jyotirlinga. He asked them to find the origin and end of him. Initially both of them tried to find but failed to do so and later Lord Brahma asked Ketaki flower to lie along with him. Upon their respective returns, Lord Shiva accepted his defeat. So Lord Brahma lied to him and Ketaki helped him and told that he has found the origin.
Lord Shiva go angry with this lie and cut one of Lord Brahma’s head and also diminished him from ever being worshiped as Lord. Lord Shiva also cursed Ketaki flower that it will never be used in worshiping Shivlinga.
Again it is clearly told in the Shivpurana that there was Asura called Jalandhar who was killed and burned to ashes by Lord Shiva. Jalandhar was blessed that he cannot be defeated by anyone even the Gods and this blessing were depended on his wife’s chastity. So Gods went to Shiva and asked for his and Lord Shiva decided to defeat and kill Jalandhar and in order to that he had to breach Jalandhar’s chastity and he did so. This made Tulsi angry and she banished Lord Shiva from being worshiped by her divine leaves.
Third: Coconut water
Coconut water cannot be offered to Lord Shiva but coconut can be offered because whatever is offered to Lord Shiva is considered as nirmalya and thus it is forbidden to consume it and consuming coconut water after being offered on deities is considered as mandatory to drink, it is thus not offered to Lord Shiva.
Turmeric is used for enhancing beauty of females and Shivlinga is a symbol of Lord Shiva so it should never be offered to Shivlinga.
Kumkum is related to married women and considered sacred because women apply to seek the long life of their spouse and worshiping his symbol with Kukum is not considered auspicious.
Goddess Laxmi will never stay with you if you have these 5 traits
According to Ancient Hindu Scriptures, when Samudra Manthan was done several prominent Hindu deities came out and Goddess Laxmi was also one of them. And when all lords of heaven were robbed including Indra they were rescued by the Goddess Laxmi.
Goddess Laxmi blessed God Indra and gave him Dwadashakshar Mantra to restore the wealth and prosperity, fame and peace of mind but only on one condition that he has to follow it religiously. So anyone who worships Goddess Laxmi using this mantra every Friday night will also be blessed by Lord Kuber who gives immense prosperity.
Even in Vishnu Puran it is mentioned that Goddess Laxmi has been praised for her gentility by Lord Indra and on his request she agreed to stay happily in heaven but also warned that if there are no traces of these five things.
So let us checkout which 5 traits are these
First trait is Lust
It is said that wherever or whenever there are lust overpowering Dharma and Karma, neglecting the righteousness of daily life Goddess Laxmi will never stay at that place.
Ego is the second trait which Goddess Laxmi do not like
Yes Goddess Laxmi will not stay in that home where people are immersed in their arrogance and ignorance because ego subdues their consciousness.
Greed is bad
Goddess Laxmi will never stay in that home where people are greedy because this trait overpower the Karma and it is also considered as the ground of sin.
Place where violence happens and it could be related to animals also could never have Goddess Laxmi.
Disrespect to woman
If a person does not respect a women or who believes in cruelty against innocent women always receive the wrath of Goddess Laxmi.
Who knows whether you will live tomorrow or not?
We should focus on today rather than thinking about future or past because no one knows whether we will be alive tomorrow or not and when we wake up we should first of all thank god for giving us one more day to enjoy the life.
So next time when you wake up in morning simply be thankful to god for the beautiful life as no one knows what will happen next day.
There was a interesting instance happened during Mahabharata when a Brahmin went to talk to yudhiṣṭhira and after reaching the palace he called for him but yudhiṣṭhira was busy in discussing things with other who were already sitting with him so he waited for him for some time and then again he called yudhiṣṭhira to listen to him and yudhiṣṭhira again asked for some more time from him to get free.
After some time again Brahmin asked yudhiṣṭhira whether he was free to talk to him but he was still busy with other people and asked him to wait.
The whole day passed and Brahmin knew that yudhiṣṭhira was very busy and he became sad that he was not able to take out time for him but to thought that he should give it a last try and politely asked yudhiṣṭhira to listen to his problem but unfortunately yudhiṣṭhira was still busy but this time yudhiṣṭhira told him that he will talk to him next day as he was not having any time. Brahmin became sad and started walking towards his home.
When he was on his way Bheema saw him and asked why he was sad so he told everything to him that he wanted to discuss his problem with his brother yudhiṣṭhira but he did not met as he was very busy and asked him to meet next day.
Bheema asked him to wait and asked the drummers to play all drums continuously and keep playing the drums.
Initially no one was much bothered with playing of drums but when they kept on playing the drums yudhiṣṭhira came out and asked what the matter was.
Beehma told him that drum was being played because yudhiṣṭhira has conquered death and knows when he will die so they are celebrating his victory. yudhiṣṭhira was very surprised after hearing this and asked Beehma why he said like that? Bheema replied to him that the Brahmin was waited whole day to discuss his matter with him but he asked him to come next day that means yudhiṣṭhira knew that he will definitely not die another day and was very much sure about it that is why he said so.
yudhiṣṭhira understood his mistake and apologized to Brahmin and listen to hi problem and solved his query.
So the zest of the story is that we do not now when death will come to us so do whatever you want to do today and do not leave things on tomorrow.
