    Hi Lalitha

    Sai sat charithram can be read chapter by chapter every day. At th end of everyday parayanam, perform harti(baba ke harti songs will be available in satcharithra) and offer meeta channa or salty channa and coconut.

    Many follow the sapthah way. Divide the chapters into 7 parts for 7days, and end of 7th day, offer sheera (Kesari) to Sai and distribute to poor near temple. It is said, if a oldman or boy (of 16-17yrs) of age volunteers to get the prasad, he is Sai himself in disguise.


    Good luck !!! :thumbsup

    Luv

    Hey lalitha

    Glad to hear that you are going to start reading Saicharithra. For Baba the most important thing is doing Paarayana(i.e. reading HIS book). You can finish the book in a week called Saptaha Paarayana, 2 weeks called Dwisapthaaha paarayana, 3 weeks called Thri sapthaayha paarayana. Following Baba's path is the best thing we can do in our life.

    The books by Master Ekkirala Bharadwaja are really good. Really worth reading them. If you want more details feel free to pm me. Will be more glad to help you out.

    Bye.

    I read Sai Sat Charitra over a week(Saptah Parayan) every once in a while. My prayers have always been answered by Baba. You should start on a thursday and finish over seven days. I think there are about 262 pages in the English version of the Book. I read about 30 to 40 pages initially, so that on the last day I have to read only two/three pages of the last chapter. Sometimes, I do sheera naivedyam on last day. If that is not possible, just offer any fruit or milk or any naivedyam of your choice. Baba accepts everything offered with a true heart. Goodluck!

    Hey Saisanthi

    Yeah, the book is in english too. If not for the first time, you can start on any day . There are no specific rules for Baba parayana. But it is really good if you read daily without any break. if you want more details abpout Master Ekkirala Bharadwaja please pm me.

    Hi,

    I am so glad to see this thread on Thursday morning ! As for reading
    SAI SATCHARITA, I have read this many times usually within 7 days called Saptah. We should start this preferably on Thursday and finish it in a week (7days) . It is alright if we take more time.

    After we finish the book, we offer prasadam for neivedhya. Sometimes, we can also stop eating/drinking something we like till our visit to SHIRDI temple. Ofcourse this is totally optional. I have done this and it has reaped so many benefits for me.

    The English version of SHRI SAI SATCHARITA has 260 pages and the Tamil version has 412 pages including pages for Sai Baba Ashtothra Sada Naamavali. I got these holy books at SHIRDI after placing them at the holy feet of SAI BABA!

    There are no specific rules otherwise and BABA always blesses us when we pray with a true and pure heart.
    OM SAI SHRI SAI ! PEACE TO ALL!
    Thanks
    Jithiks
