Sai Baba's love for His devotees

Om Shri SatChitAnanda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj ki Jai.

Shirdi Sai Baba is known for His love towards the devotees. His unbounded love attracts so many souls towards Him. All Sai Baba requires is intense love from His devotees. Although, most often we read or hear about Sai Baba's the fulfillment of wishes of devotees, it is but the immense love of Shirdi Sai Baba whose words we should remember are, "I give people what they want so that I can give what I want to give them."
It is for Baba's immense love towards His devotees, to divert their love towards the divine, He fulfills devotees wishes, also give them protection in many ways and on many levels of consciousness.  Also loving Baba Sai's divine form and His Name (Namasmaran), is love for divine.

So in reality, it is because of Baba's love that we devotees love Baba and the divine.

Just a night before a similar experience of Sai Baba's love happened with me. I read about a Satsang (singing of bhajans in love for divine) with highly devotional hearted Vikram Hazra on 14th of Jan., in presence of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Pune . Another artist a painter, who paints beautiful Sai Baba's paintings of canvas, Sunil Shegaonkar lives in Pune.  So i thought both of them meet, on occasion that Baba loves, that of singing devotional songs and i should contact both for the same.

Soon after this thought, i was reminded of watching photo copies of paintings of Sai Baba by Sunil Shegoankar in a shop exactly opposite Dwarkamai. A point from the past, where i was asking the shopkeeper (who also happens to be my friend) about devotees responses for the photos.

Usually, the night sleeping time is best for me to contemplate on divine grace. And Baba's love and grace makes it so simple. I just have to keep my head on Sai Baba's clothes putting my hand on Shri Sai SatCharitra and grace of Baba, fills my consciousness in seconds. Am simply in love with this divinely graced book by Baba, better still, Baba's love and grace flowing through this book gives so much solace to me. So, there is no other way, but to love the divine book.

Somehow prior to this day Wednesday 4th Jan 2012, for about four days. The sleeping happened with chanting of Ma Kali's name, feeling Maa's divine grace from Kali Maa's Chunri from Dakshineshwar Temple, the place Sri Ramakrishna Paramhamsha worshiped the Divine Mother. More on how devotion for Maa Kali began is written on the post titled Male and female spiritual energy.

Now, on Thursday as i had mentally, reached the point in the past, where i was asking my friend about Sai Baba's photos in his shop. The shop is exactly opposite Dwarkamai. So before i could complete my sentence, i felt strong grace coming from Dwarkamai. I looked back, forgot everything else. The heart and head taken over by grace, i lovingly started chanting Sai Baba Sai Baba. 4 to 5 hours might have passed in this state of Sai Baba's love in Dwarkamai.

During that time mentally or say subtly i walked into Dwarkamai and each and every atom of Dwarkamai i felt was Baba. Once i even thought, we have walked in Dwarkamai so many times, and we have to walk on Baba's love, because there is no other way.

On the next night Thursday 5th 2012, i was again sleeping in Baba's grace and then, too much saturated by grace got up at around 12. Had some food spent some time in home temple. At about 2 'o clock strongly felt to share previous night experience on the blog. But did not do it, thinking if i start to write, completing the job will be at 6 a.m., considering the break i would take at 3.30 for cleaning home-temple (Baba's room) lighting incense and attending live aarti of Sai Baba  on Tata Sky TV. Sleeping at 6 or 7 in morning would disturb the sleeping pattern.

Next day, in mail i got a picture from a devotee friend in Mumbai. About people seeing Sai Baba's face in Nimbar in Dwarkamai. Again i was reminded of the strong feeling of Baba's grace in each atom of the Holy Dwarkamai. Later on could also see a couple videos on the same on youtube videos.
