Jai Sai Master!
Today world over, crores of people are celebrating Lord Krishna's birthday - Krishnastami. A day, which reminds us of the importance of being a HUMAN, for only we are blessed to understand the great teachings of this JAGADGURU.
Everyone remembers various deeds done by Lord Krishna. However, what HE did in the battlefield of Kurukshetra, is the best that happened to the mankind. BHAGAVADGITA. This itself shows what Lord wanted every human to do. This was made possible, only because Arjun went on questioning. This is the most important point of all. Till Arjuna treated Lord Krishna, though with all due respect, HE remained a normal charioteer. The moment Arjuna bowed and accepted HIM, HE became Arjuna's GURU and delivered Gita.
Today, many places, Gita is recited by many and everyone has their own style of delivering it. Because of their perspective towards religion or GOD, the way Gita is explained changes. Due to this, we are left wondering which is the right one. In Sri Sai Leelamrutam, the answer was given by Sri Shirdi Sai, for Gita was delivered to a disciple by a GURU or JAGADGURU, to clear his mind and to give him the right perspective on life. When the disciple was finding it difficult, the Lord showed him the reality through Viswarupam or gave a feel of OMNIPRESENCE of HIM. This shattered the myth of life to the disciple, Arjuna and fought with responsibility without attachments.
Sri Shirdi Sai, asked Nana to explain the verse in Gita (4:34). When Nana, who recited this for years, could not explain properly, Sri Sai Baba explained the real meaning of the same and unlocked the secret of understanding Gita in right sense and in turn defined the purpose of life for every human being. Sri Shirdi Sai Baba, who belonged to all and at the same time to none, due to HIS non-attachment to any particular religion or caste or creed, made everyone understand that the real purpose of life is to find a Sadguru and seek his protection. Apart from this, there is no other way of getting realisation. HE also showed how to search for a Sadguru (through continuous parayana or Sri Gurucharitra and biographies of other Mahatmas and follow them till the day, Sadguru comes to him and gives blessings).
Hence, Sri Shirdi Sai Baba is the avatar of this Yuga or Kaliyuga and HE is the JAGADGURU.
On this auspicious day of Krishnastami, may we bow to HIM and seek his blessings to find a Sadguru to walk on the path to realisation.
Jai Sai Master !!
