தம்முடைய பாரத்தை என்மேல் போட்டுவிட்டு என்னுடன் ஒருவர் ஒன்றிவிட்டால், அவருடைய உலக சம்பந்தமான அனைத்து விஷயங்களுக்கும், விவகாரங்களுக்கும் நானே பொறுப்பாகிறேன். - ஸ்ரீ ஷிர்டி சாய்பாபா.
I am responsible
If one puts his burden on Me and merges in Me, I will take responsibility of all his matters. - Sri Shirdi Sai Baba.

Scriptures Are Our Guide-Posts
After making a reading of scriptures like the Vedas and the Upanishads, we acquire spiritual wisdom with which we can live in equanimity both in weal and woe. To bear both pain and pleasure equally, we need to reach a spiritual state of equi-poise. Anantharao Patankar read many books and scriptures, yet he was restless in his mind and so he came to Shirdi and confessed before Baba that his bookish knowledge did not yield him peace of mind. He further added that the illiterate devotees of Baba were far better than him as they live in the cool ambience of Baba. Then, Baba explained, through Kelkar, that knowledge which is not coupled with sincere devotion, is futile. Though one may not be learned, but if one has faith and devotion for God, Baba's teachings will serve as guide-posts in life's journey.
There are times when solutions to our problems do not strike our minds. We start reading Sri Sai Satcharitra or any other scripture. A sentence in that book or a story narrated therein will suggest solutions to our problems. If we repose firm faith in Baba, His silent voice of wisdom will reveal the right solution. After Baba's samadhi, Vaman Rao resolved to become a renunciate and he heard Baba ordering him to change his name to 'Sai Sharan'. Even today, we come across many devotees who had personal encounter and communication with Baba.
Om Sai Ram!!
On Sainath namaha!!

Water Loses its Identity when Added to Milk
Impressions are embedded in man's mind as seeds. As one 'cultures' one's mind, thought-seeds blossom into flowers of qualities in one's character. Just as each flower is distinct, so also the character of each one of us. But the surroundings and objects influence a man. Water turns saltish when salt is added and water turns syrup when sugar is stirred in it. Likewise, a good-company will lead a person to tread the right path, while the company of the wicked will lead to self-ruin. The company with which one associates will determine one's destiny and direction of life. Wisdom reminds us to keep our children, right from their tender age, under the tutelage of an enlightened teacher.
Despite his abject poverty, Sudhama developed a spiritual bent of mind for Lord Krishna and Sudhama was blessed to prosper in life. One should cultivate good habits, good thoughts and seek the company of good souls to live uprightly in order to reach God who dwells in every heart. We learn lessons in good conduct, first from our mother and later in the company of the good. Water loses its identity when added to milk and it becomes impossible to separate both. Likewise, by mingling with the good souls, one becomes a noble soul and many are inspired to emulate the person. Let us grasp the enlightening philosophy of Sai and practice His teachings to make the most of our lives.
