Editorial By: Nikhil Dugar Dear Readers, Samarpan team feels humbled to present this latest edition of our beloved magazine in the lotus feet of Baba. With a great response in the form of your contributions, we have Samarpan Team been able to extend the reach of “Samarpan” Anisha Saluja further with every edition. Samarpan team truly Ashok Jain thank you the love shown to the magazine. Mythili K Nikhil Dugar By the time this edition reaches to you all, holy Poornima S period of “Chaturmas” would have already begun. Ravi Verma Chaturmas is a period of four months beginning from Chaturdashi of Ashadha month (Shukla paksha) and ends on Chaturdashi of Kartik month (Shukla paksha) (Mid-July to Mid-October). It is believed that during this period all God and Goddesses are at rest. Therefore, no auspicious activities like weddings, yagya, new establishments etc. are performed during this period. According to Shrimad Bhagwatpuran and other religious texts, this rest period is referred to as “Yognidra”, a term that describes the rest Vishnu took after annihilation of the world. In this period Lord Vishnu is in deep meditation. Therefore, disciples practice “tapa”, “dhyana” and other spiritual practices during this period to please the Lord. This period is reserved in the year for penance, austerities, fasting, bathing in holy rivers and religious observances for all. Devotees resolve to observe some form of vow, be it of silence or abstaining from a favourite food item, or having only a single meal in a day.

On a practical note, in India, heavy monsoon rains falls during this period. As we all know, lots of insects and minute organism take birth due to rains and weather conditions. This sudden increase in the number of such organisms also affect our lives as they infect vegetables, water etc. Therefore, practicing fasts and one time meal or not taking meals after sunset are not only religious practices but have a logical and scientific reasoning. These practices reduce the incidents of getting ill or infected. They also increase austerity and purity in us. According to principal of “Ahimsa Parmo Dharma”, it is a way to live and let live even the tiniest and weakest form of life. It’s just another example of Indian way of living. Sages and monks practice toughest vows during this period. They choose to reduce their movements as they may harm small living organisms. They opt to stay in a particular place and preach spiritual discourses. Jain festival “Paryushan” also falls under this period. This festival, unlike other festivals is not of a lot of celebrations but of intense “tapa” and fasting. Duration of this festival is from 8 to 10 days according to different Jain Sects. It ends on Bhadrapada Shukla chaturthi. The last day is called Samvatsari, short for Samvatsari Pratikramana. This day is also called as “KhsamaYachna divas” or “Day of Forgiving”. As forgiveness is the best way to clear the animosity, people request each other and each living organinsm in the world to forgive any harm caused to them willingly or unwillingly and tries to remove any kind malign feelings from their hearts for others if has arisen during past. As common household persons, if it is not possible to follow strict vows, we can still practice simpler laws of living for our physical and spiritual development. During Chaturamasa we should practice: Using fewer resources and that too optimally. E.g. avoiding wastage of water, food etc. Eating dried vegetables or eatables like grams, rajmas etc. As the green vegetables are prone to have increased number of worms and insects. “Dhyan”/Meditation in Silence (Mauna). Reduces unnecessary energy consumption and increases thoughtfulness. Fasts. They make us calm and composed. Purify our internal physique and thoughts. Although, the lovely rains of monsoon are loved by everyone, enjoying this season with little care and spirituality can add up happiness to one’s life. This is the time we can learn that “surviving together” is more important than following the principal of “survival of fittest”. I once again, on behalf of Samarpan team, thank all the readers and contributors for our magazine. Om Sai Ram! http://forum.spiritualindia.org ~5~ www.shirdi-sai-baba.com

My Lord Helped My Family in the Hour of Need - II By: Shivaprasad Bolar I would like to share my personal experience and would like to convey to my dear brothers and sisters that it is God, the almighty alone who can help at the time of distress. I like to commence my writing with a prayer to all the Gods and Goddess whom I pray daily. I had discussed my earlier experiences with Baba; how Baba had helped me overcome various problems. Whatever good state I am today is all due the blessings of Baba. I have been praying to Baba with sincere devotion and also expressed my request and feelings through this media for my mother’s ill health and now she is recovering fine and able to do her daily chores by herself. All of my family members including my father, my wife, my siblings, cousins, uncles and aunts were worried about my mother’s deteriorating health, and by Baba’s grace all are relieved now. I always wanted to visit Shirdi with my family. I have been trying for the past one year, but of no avail. However, it seems that Baba has heard my request and very soon a temple near our house would install Baba’s statue too. I just cannot express my feelings about this fact. I just want to tell you all that Baba is with us all the times. I Once again request Baba to give me the strength to help the needy people including animals. My immediate dream is to visit Shirdi and seek the blessings of Baba and find solace in this act. Lastly I would like to say that anything that is being asked with sincerity and devotion will be definitely blessed by Baba. Om Sri Shirdi Sai Ram http://forum.spiritualindia.org ~7~ www.shirdi-sai-baba.com

Sai’s Blessings By: Apoorva Kumar Although there has never been a step in my life where Sainaath was not there to help me, in this article I would like to detail how my professional life is blessed by Sai’s grace. After completion of my post-graduation I was searching for a good job, I gave many interviews and every time because of some silly mistake from my side I was not able to make it. That was when I got introduced to Sai Charitra by one of my aunt. She told me about the book and said, “Whoever finishes reading this book faithfully in one week gets one of his important wish fulfilled”. Those days, the only wish I had was to get a job in some reputed MNC. It was for more than 7 months that I was searching for a job and continued rejections resulted in depression for me. The little advice from my aunt was like a ray of hope for me. Although my Buaji is an ardent Sai devotee and I was staying at her place during my job search, it never occurred to me to read Sai Charitra. I started reading “Sai Charitra” and found it interesting the way it is organized. One feels like one is reading short stories and before you realize you are attached to the book, the place, the stories described there. There is only one power behind this attachment, “You look at me, I’ll look at you”. Lord Sai decides when the right time is and He calls his devotees to him. My lord showered his blessings on me and I got job in a very reputed company. I was happy with my job and attained lot of growth over period of time. It was here only where I got my first onsite assignment. I also got nice visibility in the company; the seniors were supportive and helping. Those days my fiancée was working in Hyderabad and I wanted to find a job in Hyderabad because it was not easy for her to find a job in north India. I had my trust on ‘Sainaath’ and fortunately I was also aware of the best way to seek Sai’s blessing. I started reading the 15th chapter of SaiCharitra on daily basis. The main story of this chapter tells how Mr. Cholkar got the job he was looking for by Sai’s blessing. One day I was sitting with my family members and we were discussing about Baba only. That time I said, “I would like to visit Shirdi around Aug-Sep”. This was around May 2007. My lord was listening to this. There is one thing which I would like to mention here, I said that ‘I would like’; I didn’t say that ‘I want’ because nobody can go to Shirdi without Sainaath’s invitation. My Sai is very merciful and he has his own ways to do the things. By my Lord’s blessings, I got selected in a company in Hyderabad in July 2007. There only I came to know that there is a tour package from A.P. transport service http://forum.spiritualindia.org ~8~ www.shirdi-sai-baba.com

which includes travel and accommodation. I tried and I got the tickets easily. Sainaath arranged everything for me and we had very nice ‘darshan’ in Shirdi. I would like to mention a very blissful incidence. After reaching Hyderabad, when I went to my fiancées house for the first time, I saw a big poster of Sai Baba in the entrance room. I remember when I was leaving Gurgaon, I went to Sai temple and it was time of evening aarti and I was little depressed for leaving a familiar place behind. And here in Hyderabad, my lord was there as if to assure me again that he is always there to protect me. After working about a year in Hyderabad, I again wanted to change the job as I was not satisfied with the work. Meanwhile, my fiancée joined another company where she had the opportunity to relocate (if she wanted) to either Pune or Gurgaon. I was very confused as I had job offers from both the places. There Sai came to help me and I got another offer from Gurgaon which was the best among all. I chose it and asked my fiancée to get a transfer to Gurgaon. Again by Sainaath’s blessings she was allowed to relocate; although the company policies state at least 6 months gap before relocation and in case of my fiancée it was only 3 months. See the strange ways of my Lord, we both joined our respective companies on the same day in Gurgaon. My new company offered me an onsite long term assignment. I went onsite and came back after 6 months for marriage. That time I tried a lot but I couldn’t get a visa for my wife. I returned back to the site with hope that she will join me very soon. It took about six months to get a valid visa for her travel to my location. It was only Sai who always helped me. My lord gave me good level of patience and strength to pass the hard times. When she was coming to join me, the difficult decision was to keep or quit the current job. Once again, Sainaath arranged all for us. As he says in his teachings, ‘leave everything for me, I’ll take care’ and yes Sai only knows what is best for us and how it should be given. By Sai’s blessing my wife’s company allowed her to work from home for 3-4 months. It was my Lord’s grace only that her management never had any objection for extension of work from home system and she worked more than 2 years like this. Even we got the facility of work from home there were few problems. Once there was some update done on the machine and after that the network card stopped working. The only way to get it fixed was to connect to company’s network and since the problem was with network card only, we had no way to connect to the company’s network. The only visible option was to go back to India. I prayed to Sai to help us and the problem was solved. There have been many incidents where the machine developed a kind of problem and it was always resolved in a miraculous way. One day the laptop’s battery stopped charging itself. I tried everything from removing to refitting the battery, checking the electric point but in vain. There was no hope and I then prayed to Baba and checked it again and I realize that the wire was loose from adapter’s http://forum.spiritualindia.org ~9~ www.shirdi-sai-baba.com

end. As the ways of my Lord are, all the problems vanish in such a way as if they were never there. For quite some time my wife was trying to find a job here. Finally she got selected in an interview but the company was little reluctant to process her work permit. Baba blessed the starting of this year by giving her new job. Only my Lord knows that how much important this job was for us. I cannot thank Sai enough for his mercy. My wife had 2 months of notice period and the new company wanted her to join as soon as possible. Again by Sai’s grace only she was released not only in 10 days but the arrangement to send the laptop back to India was also done. Before finishing this article I would like to state that even infinite pages of writing cannot contain the description of my Lord’s blessing. I thank you Sai for being with me always and I pray to your lotus feet that your blessings are always bestowed upon me. My Sai, you are my life force, even for taking a small step I need your blessings your help. My Lords, please forgive my mistakes and protect me as you always have done. http://forum.spiritualindia.org ~ 10 ~ www.shirdi-sai-baba.com
