Why Do We Feel Fear? Sai shows us how we can overcome our fear by getting to the core of it. By declaring that He is all, He removes the source of the fear, thus enabling us to face our fear. In addition to removing our fears, Sai teaches us how to be fearless. Here are some of His most important teachings for His devotees.
Many devotees question whether there was any reason to fear Shirdi Sai Baba. However, there is no need to worry. Sai’s life has been a success story for thousands of people. If you’re afraid of death or dying, the truth is that Sai never feared anything. In fact, Sai was so fearless that when the roof of the Masjid fell, four devotees escaped, believing that he had come to protect them. Similarly, Sai prevented woods from falling down and stopped a plague in the nearby villages. Rather than fearing the people of Shirdi, Sai was simply trying to save the woods for the Holy Dhuni.
This enlightened Sai Baba was the perfect example of the harmony of all religions. He lived to awaken mankind and lead the world to spiritual life. By living a virtuous life, he ignited a new wave of spirituality. His life activities aimed to uplift mankind, beginning with the temporal benefits that were bestowed upon him, before he radically transformed them into people of pure heart and mind.
You may be thinking “Why should I give money to charity when I am already rich?” It is true that we are all souls and are responsible for our own destiny. That being said, there are a few good ways to give money to charity. These include: Giving to others, serving others, and avoiding greed. The teachings of Sai Baba, while they may seem contradictory, are in fact based on a universal philosophy.
The first thing we need to know about fear is the nature of it. When it comes to spirituality, fear is the most common obstacle. Sai explains this in his teachings by saying that fear is the root of all suffering. Fear can be overcome through a calm mind. When we remove fear from our minds, we are empowered and able to walk the spiritual path fearlessly.
His life in Shirdi
The life of Sai Baba begins in 1846 when his parents came to Shirdi with their young son, Mohan Shyam. At that time, a small school was adjacent to the room where Baba lived. Shyam used to watch Baba through a ventilator at night. Baba slept on an 18-inch plank that was 7 or 8 feet off the ground. Shyam was worried that the plank would topple and he prayed to stay close to the Baba during his last days.
Biographers of Sai Baba of Shirdi based their conclusions on people who knew the Baba. This book, called the Shirdi Diary, contains a detailed account of Baba’s life in Shirdi. The author, Ganesh Shrikrishna Khaparde, wrote about his stay in Shirdi. Other sources have different interpretations of Sai Baba’s life.
His advice to devotees
The spiritual teacher, Shirdi Sai Baba, preached an ethical life, compassion, love without discrimination, and patience. The guru also encouraged his followers to follow religious texts from different traditions. He interpreted and explained the meaning of Hindu and Muslim texts, and touched on various advanced topics in his sermons. The following is a list of some of his most notable advice to devotees.
SaiBaba was opposed to religious orthodoxy. He was both a Hindu and Muslim. He embraced both religions and lived an ascetic lifestyle. His teachings were not only applicable to Hindus and Muslims, but to any religion. He also encouraged his followers to live an ordinary family life, and to not have material attachments. He emphasized that devotion to God is the highest form of worship and that we should not pursue the material world.
His advice to followers
Shirdi Sai Baba’ s advice to his followers includes practicing perfect loyalty to Allah and patience for KARMA. Followers of Baba are guided by a self-generated conviction that results from the Divine Love revealed through Baba’s teachings. While following Baba’s advice, devotees experience the unconditional love and compassion of God, manifesting as a profound sense of peace and joy.
The movement of Shirdi Sai Baba today includes people of many faiths. Devotees of all religions can be found here, including Muslims, Jews, and Hindus. People from other countries have embraced the movement, which has spread worldwide and has throngs of followers in the United States, the United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates. And in addition to India, the movement is flourishing in the United States, Canada, Malaysia, Singapore, and elsewhere.
His relationship with devotees
The shaktipat is the devotional practice of offering everything to the Guru. In doing this, the devotee will not experience any doership feelings or expectations in what he does. The act of offering is synonymous with unconditional love. Devotees should be consistent in their faith and surrender to the Guru with complete surrender. They should not give any attention to any other thing that might distract them from the Guru. They must understand that Guru’s grace is always on the devotee and is the source of his unconditional love.
In his younger years, Baba was very shy and often avoided humans and went to the houses of select devotees. Bayaja Bai’s house was one of those places. The satguru would stand outside the gate and say, “God bless Mother Bayaja.” The devotee would invite Him into her house and sit on the veranda. She used to feed Him food, and her young son, Tatya, would play with him. Although they never shared a special bond, the satguru was remembered by many for His devotion to his devotees.
