power of healing is in your own mind :
The feeling of pain is an expression of your mind.When a person
is suffering in severe health problems his enemie is "fear"
of not being able to get cured, worries about his family and career
being effected and financial problems. Once they over come fear
and worries , their faith becomes pure love that they show on God
and shirdi saibaba. This invisible thing called love deviates mind
from pain and takes them to a better state of living....
Living in confidence that they will be healthy
in the days to come
Living with Trust that their Guru shirdi
sai will surely heal their pains
Living with a support. Support of Guru .Trusting
sai from the bottom of heart that he will surely protect them forever.
Living with whole hearted belief that sai
has powers to cure their disease and make them healthy someday.
Leave all your worries, family , career problems in the feets of
sai. Don't mind what your friends and relatives are speaking about
your faith on sai. You just learn to love sai whole heartedly. Fill
your mind with sai sai sai , remember sai every minute , read and
assimilate his stories. This way when you fill your mind with shirdi
sais thoughts , sai will reside in your own mind .What more you
need when a saint who has all siddis with his lives in your own
mind. Sais presence in your mind is the infinte power of healing.
sai will bless you with good health.
Please try to do the following when someone you
know is in pain :
When you are in pain , your mind will be weak too. Your faith on
shirdi saibaba or any true Guru will certainly give boost to your
mind.When your dear ones are suffering with health problems , please
don't feel shy to do the following....
1.Udi mixed with water :
Apply udi in forhead and areas paining in the body.Give them Udi
( sacred ash ) mixed with water .Udi is the most powerful medicine.Baba
has cured hundreds of devotees during his life time by giving udi
and now millions of devotees who trusted udi are being benefitted.
You can get Udi from shirdi or any shirdi sai temple near by.Baba
has done miracles to many devotees who consumes this sacred water
2. Pray sai to charge water with
his rays of blessings :
If you live abroad where its hard to get Udi , alternative way
is to ask someone who is near them to hold a can of water praying
sai to bless the water with his powers to heal the pain and make
them drink it. I usually have the habit of keeping a glass of water
in front of sai photo and drinking. Even if i buy medicines for
my parents, i keep it under shirdi sais feet and give them.
3.Visit temple, Light lamps - Do
prayer at your house :
Please try to visit near by temple, Light lamps, do annadhan or
any kind of good activities as per your ability and give the prasad
to the person who is suffering. If theres no temples near by, Light
candles or lamps in a tray under babas feet, do any offerings of
fruits etc to sai and give those as prasad.
4. Keep sai satcharita near the
person being treated :
Where ever you live, Please atleast take a print out of online
version of sai satcharita and give it to the person who is suffering.
Its ok if they can't read it. The presence of sai satcharita is
enough. Baba knows whom to pull to that room and make them read
or sai can even make the sick person read.
5.Speak about shirdi sai leelas,
stories and incidents :
Always speak positively about the powers of shirdi saibaba .If
possible tell them stories of your friends, relatives or those you
find in sai satcharita or the miracles of devotees experiences you
find in this site.Tell these stories of how baba helped and cured
diseases . Tell them baba does no magic.All powers of healing is
in their mind because baba is "Antar Vaasini - The one who
lives from inside" . If their mind is filled with sais thoughts,
if they always utter sais name and if they call sai sai sai for
help, Surely sai will heal them .In addition to this ask them to
be calm and be have patience .Sai will help them someday.
6. Chanting "sairam" -
Any mantra :
Many sai devotees have experienced the presence of sai and his
miracles when they remember sai by uttering his name regularly.
It will be nice if you say sairam for hours togather or atleast
try to chant when ever your mind remembers that you are supposed
to do chanting. You can chant in following ways - "sairam"
, "Aum sri sai ram" , "shirdi sai dwarakamai"
"Aum sai sri sai jaya jaya sai"
When baba lived he encouraged Naam saptah for 7 days without break.We
must atleast do it once in a while everyday.When person getting
treated remembers sai sai sai, evil forces wont attack them .If
they are in worst situation , You can do it on their behalf.You
can also chant any mantra of your favourite God .I suggest Hanuman
mantra as Lord Hanumanjis blessings can give them will power and
strength. Try to visit temple of Lord Danvantri whos blessings brings
good health & Lord Vaitheeswaran who cures diseases .Mantra
of these God can also be read regularly.
7.Play shirdi saibaba song or arathi
If the person suffering is at home, please let them hear or see
arathi of shirdi saibaba if you have cds.This will create positive
vibration at home.This could be a silly point but my intention is
to remind you that its really powerful.
8.Try to involve in any good humanitarian
If possible, try to do Annadhan , clothes or blankets to poor orphanage
etc. Make sure the organisation you choose to give is using your
things and money truthfully. I prefer avoiding big charity organisations
because many are there to fund them.Find the deserving really needy
people and say "sairam" when you give. This is what sai
wants from us.Giving in the name of sai is powerful. It will was
away sins of your past birth. Dont spend lavishly all of a sudden.
Even when you give as dharma give as much as you can afford.
9. Baba likes when you pray whole
Some people think about other problems and other people watching
them in temple etc while praying.When you pray there must be no
"Wall" between you and sai. Express yourself to sai with
your hands, with your legs and body.Trust me baba likes it. Dont
cry purposely but if you feel like crying dont feel shy. sometimes
sai uses our tears to wash away past karma. Many many days i had
hugged baba photo and crying like child.I was in such unbearable
pain in few issues and i know sai made me do it. When you pray looking
at photo or statue of shirdi saibaba, just remember sai .When you
close eyes imagine baba sitting in dwarakamai near dhuni and blessing
you.If you love baba so much , i assure you can see him talking
The below article is wrote for devotees facing worst health problems
and based on my understanding of sais ways.Forgive me if there are
any mistakes .
Perceive pain , disease and suffering with health
problems in positive ways :
When body is not functiontion properly, it sends singal to the
brain so that you will treat it and this signal is what we call
as "Pain ". As we all know there's some good even in a
bad thing, many disease will never be treated if you dont get pain
or any other symptoms which hurts you. Apart from the benefit of
helping you to get treated and bring your body back to good condition
every time you get sick or your loved ones are diseases please do
not feel let down as there's another positive aspect when they are
"Their past bad karma is being
washed away "
What is karma :
What made me launch this site.Its my karma.You are reading. Thats
your karma. If you find what ever i wrote is wrong and write me
negatively , then i must bear that mail calmly as a gift of sai.
Thats my karma. While we are standing in rocky sea shore, we can
hear sounds of big waves splashing but the big waves are formed
out of various small waves which we dont hear. Similarly every small
act we do is karma and these karma collectively get either to be
a big bad karma or a good karma. Who knows what sins we have done
in our present or previous births. sometimes we might have done
sins unknowingly but the Law of nature ticks perfectly like a clock
without missing a second.No excuse for any one for any reason.
As you sow, so you reap :
Loss of life is for body .Our soul is always living untill takes
several births , involve in good karma and finally merges with God.Thats
why soul is called "Amar Atman". Its ever living. Though
you or your relatives, friends would have not commited any sins
in this birth, their soul would have commited a sin in previous
birth. The collective bad activies of previous birth will be waiting
for the right bad time based on the planetery situations to attack
you. Its like a "pay back"..You did an action in some
birth and now you get the reaction. The reason i write this para
is first to help you understand do not blame God and our shirdi
saibaba just because someone you love met with an accident or suffering
from disease. What ever our soul did is recorded in air. Its every
where. My guru used to say that highly evolved spiritual people
can see their own karma infront of their eyes and act accordindly.
Thats why they dont mind suffering.
Every bad word we utter, every insult
we do to others , every curse we get and every single harmful acts
of ours is recorded both in air and our own soul.
so when we suffer , we must realize ,we had planted a sinful seed
which is reaping a painful fruit today.
Frustrated and worried since shirdi saibaba din't
helped you yet ?
My objective has always been to help devotees who are facing in
worst possible situation in life. A husband suffering from cancer,
a wife suffering from uncurable disease, a small baby facing worst
medical situation, a son or daughter who has gone through an accident,
a father or mother struggling for their life. I am addressing these
children of shirdi saibaba whom sai considers as his affectionate
I can feel the pain residing in your heart when you or your loved
ones are suffering at home or in hospital. When something wrong
happens suddenly, we dont know how to react. The most common feeling
that arises in us is "why din't
sai help us even after all this ? ". If he is a saint
who has astama siddhi why cant he come down to your call and heal
the pains of your friends and relatives immediately. The reason
Karma is not trasferable :
I must explain you something very beautiful about how sai works
to save his children . Baba always says he is humble servant of
God.Even God of Gods love him because our shirdi sai is not like
mordern Gurus whom you see on tv promising instant benefits.
Our shirdi sai follows the Laws laid by Gods and Nature. Though
sai himself is God incarnate, when we worship him as sai , he is
a saint .Even Lord Rama had to suffer pains when he took that avatar
and was controlled by laws of nature. Shirdi sai's situation is
same. One of babas assurance is "Keep
all your burdens on me and i am ready to bear it " .
Baba only says keep your "Burdens". Baba never said "Keep
your karma on my shoulder and i shall bear it" . Baba dint
said it because the Laws laid by Gods and Nature doesn't allow sai
to do it and he can't. Neither sai or any saint or holy Gurus can
do it. Our karma must be beared by us, payed back by us for which
we must go through sufferings and when we suffer the karma gets
washed away. Please don't get frustrated or worried that sai is
not caring for you. Sai does. He is trying his best. Its your time
to face pains and soon sai will bless you with good days. No matter
how much you try , you cant escape the effects of karma.
Shirdi sai can reduce the intensity of karma :
For what dam reason, a saint so polite with not a trace of ego
asks you to always say " sai sai sai sai " .Does that
mean he is proud of his name or he thinks you have no other work
to do. When you remember "sai sai sai ", the evil spirits
which uses your bad time to attack you will stay away.Though even
this cant help you completely escape karma, Instead of a worst head
injury which could damage brain, you could escape with very small
scratches on the body.
The natural feeling of dejection when you are suffering
Sai is a saint.He cares for us . He knows what ever is going on
in your family. He knows the one suffering in pain crying to him.
Do what ever you can to please sai but never ever say "baba
whats the use in worshiping you , i never get results " . This
feeling is natural for anyone.My only request is don't let this
feeling of dejection grow in you. Infact, by saying this you are
embarrassing your own sweet Guru shirdi sai. Surely you will get
results as per your devotion and the little dharma you do like giving
food to hunger, clothes to poor or any good activity can please
sai and help you wash your karma someway resulting in better health.
Baba do you really care for me ?
I know you pray this way. Only devotees who depend on sai and love
him to core will ask him "Baba, do you atleast care for me
one minute ? " Are you worried thinking why sai has not healed
the pains yet ? If thats making you doubt if sai atleast cares for
you , heres the proof .....
Shirdi sai loves you irrespective of what he does for you. The
results you see infront of your eyes are just momentary.Again you
might get into another problem and come to sai for help .The pleasures
and pains is like a pendulam taking us on ride every other day but
is "results" given by sai the only way you judge his love
The very fact that you came to this site in your painful state
of mind and read about what this little sai's servant like me wrote
is a proof for sai's unmeasurable love on you and your dear ones.
In this fast world no one accept my close sai friends will read
this article .You are reading because already sai has blessed you
and wants to show that he cares
Dependancy on shirdi saibaba cannot become affection
You can always complain that he is not helping you but dont make
your complaints survive more than 5 minutes. The next moment start
to realize how much sai cares for you, if he has pulled you to him.
Baba always says "Its not people
who comes to see me and follow me by being an devotee, Its me who
choose good souls and pull them to me like a sparrow tied to thread.
To a saint who pulled you to him with affection , is it good if
you expect blessings like business. Sai is not selling blessings.His
caculator doen't have numbers.It has the nine forms of Bakthi and
beyond all this sai only expects your affection on him. Dependancy
cannot become affection. when you depend on sai for a materialistic
benefits, you only see him as a "Giver" of things and
not a loving sai ma. Do we love our mother only for what she is
doing for us. Its the affection that our mom has on us which had
registered in our heart.
similarly lets togather perceive sai as a loving and caring mother
who is trying his level best to bless us with healthy living.
Practically speaking sai devotees don't have time
to understand sai :
I have seen people coming to few Saibaba mandhir with a deal. "Baba
i will come to temple 7 thurdays , i will light candle, pay 100rs
for Annadhan and sit for arathi and go , please help me get this
and that " .....Deal is a deal. Baba has to do it. Because
these devotees consider baba as saint sitting there with powers
and all he wants to do is switch on a button and every thing will
happen. he he ....Please try to understand from sai's point of view.
Sai looks at your atman which carries all your past bad karma .How
can sai heal your pains with in a purticular time frame when you
would have done sins which wants you to suffer longer duration.
Mukthi and Eternal happiness for Mahalsapathi :
The priest who first invited sai as "Aao sai " ( come
sai ) was poor all his life. Mahalsapathi who was always with baba
as a priest of Kandoba temple was given only food , clothes and
very little money by sai to survive with his family. Even once when
a rich devotee offered to give Mahalsapthi lots of money, baba asked
him not to accept it. Is it baba's wish that Mahalsapathi who loves
baba so much must suffer like that being poor. The reason is , Mahalsapathis
ancestors or himself would have done so much of sins in past births
that baba wants him to wash away the karma in that birth itself.
What baba assured him is Mukthi and eternal happiness. Rest assured
when Mahalsapathi lost his life , he would have reached the holy
feets of our shirdi saibaba. Is it not worth suffering. To be forever
in company of saint rather than having lots of money, good health
and taking another birth and suffering in this earthly life. Similarly
sai has his own way to treat and give to devotees what they deserve.
Shirdi sai will bless you and your dear ones with
good healthy Life :
In some devotees cases , baba would have let them suffer because
their karma must be washed away and only then can sai give them
that eternal happiness. In your cases , baba might take time but
surely if you totally surrender to him and involve in good acts
of dharma from today, sai heal your diseases, sickness and bring
back you or your loves ones to good health.If you read lives of
very good souls they all would have suffered to core during their
last few days. Especially because their remaining percentage of
karma is being washed away .
So when you or your friend or your relatives are suffering from
severe health problems and if you are wondering wondering why baba
dint helped them , understand the fact. shirdi
sai is also like our real mother who can give us medicines in the
form of his blessings but each one is blessed in a different way.
Sai knows your present problem must be solved. I promise on my
holy shirdi sais powerful words and give you his assurance "Do
not worry, Baba will heal all your pains.Just stay near him calmly.
" .Having complete faith from today on above words, please
humbly pray baba, speak to him and plead him to help you. He will
surely bless you.
Your relationship with sai din't start from the
first time you learnt about sai in this birth :
I really feel odd when someone says "I have been coming to
baba temple since 15 years, am praying singing arathi for past 12
years." They wont stop there. If i say , i learnt about baba
first time when i entered saibaba temple in my place when i was 13 years old
in 1993 , they will look up and down and say , "hmm...i am
coming since 1970 for past 40 years ".I was not even born in
that year. What can i do...he he .Never judge anyones devotion and
attachment with sai based on how long they pray sai or how many
generations they pray. What matters is pure love even if you started
to pray sai this very moment because your relationship with sai
would have started several births before this and he has pulled
to you in this birth a bit late.
A sparrow pulled by shirdi sai when he was over
60 years old :
Its my habit to give baba photos to anyone anywhere sometimes even
in bus or roadsides if i find that person is good.I never feel shy
to give baba photos in odd places. sometimes when people say NO
also i will take it as sais gift though its a bit hurting...Once
i gave baba photo to 60 year old man while sitting in bus who asked
me "who's this ". I was surprised as that old grandpa
even was wearing rudraksh and seemed to be leading a spiritual life
wearing a saffron dress. I wondered how he dint know about our shirdi
saibaba all these years. I felt gifted. Atleast after 60 years baba
has pulled a new sparrow to him through me. Am just an instrument
but the happiness i got matters.
Baba alone knows why you and your friends or relatives are going
through such sickness and disease. Baba has been following you for
63 generations as he mentions in sai satcharita. Even in our previous
birth we would have worshipped the same sai when he was living in
form of some other Guru. I cant reveal the age of shirdi sai and
i wont but sais life is beyond one lakh of years. If someone calls
me fool for writing this, i apologize for mistakes and humbly keep
their comments under sais feet. Sai has followed the one suffering
in health problems in all his births . Sai knows the mistakes and
sins we did in past births .so sai
is tied by truth of karma but his heart melts when we totally surrender
to him and when our devotion and faith increases , sai will do any
thing to save us.
Shirdi sai has been showing you motherly love for
several births you took :
If our mother in this birth loves us so much , imagine how much
should sai ma care for you , the one who has always kept his eyes
on you and cared for you birth after birth. He would have followed
you when you were an insect, ant or goat and again several births
as human beings. So sai has also silently watched the sins you have
done.How can he immediately act for what ever "prayers"
you do . Can you guess what sins you have done in past. You cant
but sai looks at your atman which stores all your karma.so sai has
to obey the laws of karma .
Even then because of his love on you , sai will surely heal your
pains . who ever reads this article , will be blessed by my sweet
Guru Shirdi saibaba. Please be confident and dont feel let down.
My Guru sai is so kind, so affectionate and so beautiful at heart.
He is your mother for several births . Sai ma will surely bless
you and your dear ones with healthy long life.
Is there a way to help shirdi sai cure our diseases
Instead of complaing on our shirdi saibaba, lets help him and ourselves.
Lets make ourself deserving devotees to get his blessings. How to
do it ? I will give you an example.
A rich couples only son was gradually loosing his eye sight.They
had tried all kinds of treatments and consulted doctors all resulting
in no improvements. Finally, they had met a Guru who asked them
to make use of their money. "He has said , your son is suffering
from past karma which is why he is loosing eye sight. Do one thing...Go
to all the eye hospitals in the state and donate one days expenses
for all the patients who come there to get treated. This will be
a good dharma which could wash away your sons past karma."
The parents being rich had no problem in involving themselves in
this very good act of dharma by accepted expenses of poor patients
in all eye hospitals for one day. Believe it or not its a real life
incident and their son did got back his eye sight. Doctors will
do their part in treating you and your dear ones but make sure you
also involve in little good acts of humanity as per your ability.
I know sometimes your finance will be so less you can't even afford
for medical bills .Thats why i launched starsai.com in 2004 because
i want people to make charity as their day to day habit. Why should
you go in search of doing good acts only at the time of pain. It
will be much better if you start from today to involve in good acts
of humanity. If thats not possible, atleast make your thoughts pure.
Keeping your mind pure with good taughts itself will be a blessing
When we help others in pain and
help the needy, baba will add it to our account in his "Bank
of blessings" .There are crores of Angles up there whom
we call as "Devargal" .They will bless us everytime we
speak and act for a good cause. If we add our good karma this way,
we are actually helping sai to use it and at the time of need. Baba
will immediately come to rescue us from the jaws of death as he
has assured in sai satcharita.
Many ask baba why he can't do miracle in their life.Lets remember
sai wants us to involve in good activities of dharma to do miracles.
Our sadguru shirdi saibaba acts
according to our past births karma and present good acts of humanity
irrespective of what sins you had done in previous birth and blesses
your whole heartedly for a healthy long life.
Your good karma in this birth will surely help sai to cure your
diseases. This doesn't mean you donate money to charity organisation
for annadhan or what ever. Try to take personal care in where you
donate .Even if your money is going to change a single persons life
its worth it.
My prayers to Sai Danvantri to bless you with good
One of my friend suggested the name "sai danvantri" while
discussing about this site. Danvantri is the 11 avathar of Lord
Vishnu and is considered as 'God of Medicine'.
Please try to read this sloka as many times as you can. You can
get a chanting box of this mantra and make the person suffering
to listen to it.
Om Namo bagavathe vasudevaya
Danvantraye amrithakalasa hasthaya
Sarva maya vinashanaya
Sri maha vishnave namaha
My mother used to say do the following.
Theres a grass called "dharpa".....she keeps a glass
of water , dips the dharpa grass inside the water each time and
recite this mantra for 108 times, Then she does pooja and drinks
that holy water as prasad. She says it reduces her pain.
If you can't get dharpa grass, just keep a glass of water, recite
this mantra as many times as you can and give it as prasad to the
person to improve their health. Sai will surely cure your pains
by blessings of Lord Danvantri.
Please share your experiences :
I am a ordinary person just a humble servant of sai.If you have
any problems you can write to me.If i have time , i shall reply
you as a friend.Mostly i ask all who write to me to Light lamps

I shall add more to this article when my friends help me with more
sai experiences. Forgive me if this article has any mistakes.As
i always say am a sai devotee filled with mistakes.I don't know
what made sai pull me to him.It could be the good heart of my parents
that lead me to serve sai.I havn't done anything worthy in life
than my bond and love with sai. Only sai knows why i love him so
much.I pray my Lord Palani Murugan and shirdi saibaba to bless you
and your family with a healthly , peaceful long life
