(Report on Satsatsang held at Sai Sadhana kendra Raingini on 10th march 2019)
Today’s discussion in the satsang led by Mr. Damu. He said early in the morning a thought crossed his mind today that, a devotee Mr. Gajesh is not to be seen in the satsang for quite a long period. He felt that, Mr. Gajesh who used to make satsang more blissful by singing sai bhajans should be back in the satsang and to his utter surprise Mr. Gajesh did appeared in the satsang today. Mr. Damu therefore enquired with Mr. Gajesh as to what made him to attend today’s satsang, upon which Mr. Gajesh informed that, today only he felt like attending satsang so he decided to come. This was the classic illustration devotees got to understand, Baba’s dictum “SEE GOD IN ALL BEINGS” Devotees also learnt -as to how intense desire of one devotee is being made known to other without the use of any mode of communication. Mr. Gajesh missed the Anniversary programme of Sai Sadhana for the first time this year so he was reminded of the same by the devotees upon which he informed in the satsang that, his musical group was invited to perform at Bodgeshwar Temple, Mapusa on the anniversary day. When programme was about to start, priest in the temple requested him to sing a Sai Bhajan which reminded Mr. Gajesh of 12th anniversary celebration of Sai Sadhana and he therefore sung a Sai Bhajan in the programme happily. Even though he was not present for the 12th anniversary celebration of Sai Sadhana at Satyanarayan Hall personally, Baba made him to perform his part at Bodgeshwar Temple. He further informed that, he was returning home from the programme on his old scooter and by the time he reached Talauli village it was 2.00 a.m. in the night and his scooter broke down on the way. As there was no possibility of getting the scooter repaired, Mr. Gajesh decided to push the scooter up to his house alone. Soon after pushing the scooter for 50.00 mtrs. a pack of dogs came towards him running and started barking with force and were following him up in attacking mood. Scared of attack from the dogs at any moment while pushing the scooter Mr. Gajesh started Sainamjapa, at the very same moment, one dog came running to his rescue and started barking at the pack of dogs and stopped the dogs from coming close to Mr. Gajesh while he was pushing his scooter. Brave dog provided security cover to Mr. Gajesh in this manner until he reached home. Mr. Gajesh further informed that, he used to feed this dog daily. However, this dog never allowed Mr. Gajesh to touch it even once whenever he attempted to touch with affection while feeding. But it is only after Mr. Gajesh reached home safely, dog came close to him and allowed Mr. Gajesh to touch. It was emotional moment for Mr. Gajesh. He wondered as to how and from where this dog got power to keep away strong pack of dogs from causing harm to him. He then realised it was Baba who came in the form of dog to rescue him from the attack of pack of dogs and to make Mr. Gajesh realise this, dog allowed him to touch for the first time. In this manner Mr. Gajesh got blissful experience on the day of 12th anniversary of Sai Sadhana Trust.
Once Baba Said to Mrs. Tarkhad after she fed one hungry dog during her stay in Shirdi that ……….
“Eating that lovely bread, I am heartily contended and I am still belching. The dog, which you saw before meals and to which you gave the piece of bread, is one with Me, so also other creatures (cats, pigs, flies, cows etc.) are one with Me. I am roaming in their forms. He, who sees Me in all these creatures, is My beloved. So, abandon the sense of duality and distinction, and serve Me as you did today.”
