Lifetime Teachings 3- BABA SAYS.....

Jai Sai Master!

Today, there are innumerable devotees of Sri Shirdi Sai Baba all over the globe. Many people, irrespective of caste, creed or religion pay respects to this Emperor of Sadguru Fraternity  (as He was called by Sri Meher Baba) sitting peacefully in Dwarakamai. Many people in many countries had visions of Sri Sai Baba and today, many temples came up in Africa, America, Australia and in Europe. In India, there are many across many cities, towns and villages. 

He declared His omniprescence by saying "if anyone thinks that this 5 feet structure is Sai Baba, he does not know me at all". He declared many a time that He will answer from anywhere to the one who looks at Him. 

When someone posed Him a question as to how many people come to Him, He answered that "they do not come, but I call them." This shows there is a divine purpose behind what He is doing and even that He said He needs to account for every soul on this Universe. 

(Translation of the above: Once He Himself said "No one comes to me on their own. I call them in various ways". He said He came to protect His devotees. When one devotee was saying not to visit Sri Shirdi Sai Baba with materialistic desires, He said, "Do not say that. In the beginning, everyone comes to me with some  desire which is materialistic. However, once their desires are fulfilled, they gain stability and come on to the path of righteousness following me"
