  • Learn Life Tips

    1. A hero is to brave an ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer. A humble man is like a good tree – the more full of fruit the branches are the more they bend down.
    2. A problem well stated is a problem half solved. Adapt yourself to the things among which your lot has been cast and love sincerely the fellow creatures with whom destiny has ordained that you shall live.
    3. An opportunist is man who, finding himself is hot water, decides to take a bath. An optimist may see a light where there is none, but why must the pessimist always run to blow it out? (Many an optimist has become rich simply by buying out a pessimist.)
    4. As long as i have a want, i have a reason for living. Satisfaction is death. Ask advice of your equals, help of your superiors.
    5. Bad monay drives out good money out of circulation. Be brave, be brave, man dies but once.
    6. Between optimist and pessimist the difference is droll. The Optimist sees the doughnut the pessimist sees the hole. Victory has a hundred fathers but defeat is an orphan.
    7. Choose time to save. To create a little flower is the labour of ages.
    8. Do something for the benefit of others without any selfish motive, work is worship. You won’t win, if you don’t begin.
    9. Fame is but the breath of the people, and that often unwholsome. Good manners are the techniques of expressing consideration for the feelings of others.
    10. Fortune makes a fool of him whom she favours too much. from the errors of others a wise man corrects his own.
    11. Great mind must be ready not only to take the opportunities, but else to make them. Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.
    12. Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Lost time is never found again.
    13. He who commences many things finishes but few. He who would climb the ladder must begin at at he bottom.
    14. Hope is independent of the apparatus of logic. How doth the little bee, improve each shining hour. And gather honey all the day from every opening flower.
    15. Hope is the most treacherous of human fancies. Ignorance and absence of discipline are the cause of man’s troubles.
    16. I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. If you want to get along, go along.
    17. I like work, it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours, i love to keep it by me, the idea of getting rid of it nearly breaks my heart. If you do not want to work you should not eat too.
    18. If you are already on the top be careful the place is very slippery. All ambitions are good except those which climb upward on the miseries of the humankind.
    19. If you want milk you should not sit yourself on a stool in the middle of a field in the hope that the cow will be coming to you.
    20. If you wish to reach the highest begin at the lowest. If you want to create something, you must be something.
    21. Keep your fears to yourself; share your courage with others. Know the true Value of time; snatc, seice and enjoy every moment of it. No, no laziness, no procrastination: never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
    22. Most men fail, not through lack of education, but from lack of dogged determination, from lack of dauntless will. No great man lived in vain. The history of the world is but the biography of great men.
    23. No one reaches a high position without daring. Nothing is so contagious as enthusiasm. It moves stones, it charms brutes. Enthusiasm is the genius of sincerity and truth accomplishes no victory without it.
    24. No pain, no palm; no thorns, no glory; no cross, no crown. No sweet, no sweet.
    25. Not failure, but low aim, is crime. Nothing great is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that desire a fig, I answer you that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen.
    26. Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one time.
    27. Our mind is like a garden which can either be intelligently cultivated or be allowed to run wild.
    28. Pay attention to your enemies, for they are the first to discover your mistakes. People should think out and not accept conventional terms and the conventional way of doing things.
    29. Pennies do nit come from heaven. They have to be earned here on earth.
    30. People seldom see the halting and painful steps by which the most significant success is achieved.
    31. Perseverance is not a long race; it comprises many short races one after another.
    32. Plant your words where profit lies: Whiter cloth takes faster dyes.
    33. Politeness goes far, yet costs nothing. Poverty and wealth, both are sins.
    34. Poverty is not a shame but being ashamed of it is.
    35. Pray the success will not come any faster than you are able to endure. When you start crowing you stop growing.
    36. Prayer needs no speech. Prayers and provender hinder no man’s journey.
    37. Pride ruined the angels. Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
    38. Progress is the law of life man is not man as yet. Prosperity can change man’s nature, it is difficult to resist the effects of good fortune.
    39. Prosperity is a great teacher; adversity is a greater. Possession pampers the mind. Privation trains and strengthens it. Prosperity makes friends and adversity tries them.
    40. Remember that great achievements involve great risks. Remember, no one make you feel inferior without your consent.
    41. Resolve not to be poor: whatever you have, spend less. Poverty is a great enemy to human happiness; it certainly destroys liberty, and it makes some virtues impracticable and others extremely difficult.
    42. Smile is little, Help a little, Push a little, The world needs you.
    43. Success depends on previous preparation, and without such preparation there is sure to be failure. Success is often the result of taking a wrong in the right direction.
    44. Success is a public affair, failure is a private funeral. Success is simply a matter of luck. Ask any failure.
    45. Success is the realization of the estimate you place upon yourself. Success really brings satisfaction.
    46. Successful action tends to become an end in itself. Take care of the minutes: for hours will take care of themselves.
    47. The hardest things to handle in life are failure and success. The world is full of willing people, some willing to work, the rest willing to obstruct them.
    48. The line between failure and success is so fine that we scarcely know when we pass it, so thin that we are often on the line and do not know it. The man who makes no mistake does not usually make anything.
    49. The only place where success comes before work is the dictionary. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
    50. The past, the present and the future are really one – they are today. The percentage of error will multiply the longer you deliberate.
    51. The powers of the mind are like the rays of the sun dissipated. When they are concentrated, they illuminate. The secret of success is constancy is purpose.
    52. The secret of a good memory is attention, and attention to a subject depends upon our interest in it. We rarely forget that which has made a deep impression on our minds. The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining.
    53. There are Painters who transform the sun into a yellow spot, but there are others who, thanks, to their art and intelligence, transform a yellow spot into the sun.
    54. There are people who will always come up with reasons why you can’t do what you want to do. Ignore them and forget them. There is no defense, except stupidity, against the impact of a new idea.
    55. There are two kinds of failures: those who thought and never did, and those who did and never thought.
    56. There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. There is no success without hardship.
    57. There never was such beauty as in you. Nature made you. and then broke the mould. To achieve great things we must live as through we were never going to die.
    58. Think of the world as a hill, and mark where the millions stop. There’s always a crown at the bottom, Push on – there’s always plenty of room at the top.
    59. Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one’s thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.
    60. Those in this world who have the courage to try and solve new problems of life are the ones who raise society to greatness. Those who merely live according to rule do not advance society, they carry it along.
    61. Those who hesitate have lost the chance. Throughout my life i have gained more from my critic friends than from my admires.
    62. Troubles in the journey of life are like the hills which alarm travelers on the road. Both appear great at a distance, but when we approach them we find they are far less insurmountable then we had conceived.
    63. What is the recipe for successful achievements? To my mind there are just four essential ingredients. Choose a career you love. Give it the best there in you seize your opportunities, and be a member of the team.
    64. When all else is lost, the future still remains. When you are sure it’s good enough. Try to improve it.
    65. Where the river is deepest it makes least noise. Sometimes it is more important to discover what one cannot do, then what one can do.
    66. Who dares nothing, needs hope for nothing. Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to win is.
    67. Work a little, Wait a little, Hope a little, And don’t get blue.

  • श्री साई सच्चरित्र – अध्याय 39

    ॐ सांई राम


    श्री साई सच्चरित्र – अध्याय 39 – बाबा का संस्कृत ज्ञान

    गीता के एक श्लोक की बाबा द्घारा टीका, समाधि मन्दिर का निर्माण ।

    इस अध्याय में बाबा ने गीता के एक श्लोक का अर्थ समझाया है । कुछ लोगों की ऐसी धारणा थी कि बाबा को संस्कृत भाषा का ज्ञान न था और नानासाहेब की भी उनके प्रति ऐसी ही धारणा थी । इसका खंडन हेमाडपंत ने मूल मराठी ग्रंथ के 50वें अध्याय में किया है । दोनों अध्यायों का विषय एक सा होने के कारण वे यहाँ सम्मिलित रुप में लिखे जाते है ।


    शिरडी के सौभाग्य का वर्णन कौन कर सकता है । श्री द्घारिकामाई भी धन्य है, जहाँ श्री साई ने आकर निवास कियाऔर वहीं समाधिस्थ हुए ।

    शिरडी के नरनारी भी धन्य है, जिन्हें स्वयं साई ने पधारकर अनुगृहीत किया और जिनके प्रेमवश ही वे दूर से चलकर वहाँ आये । शिरडी तो पहले एक छोटा सा ग्राम था, परन्तु श्री साई के सम्पर्क से विशेष महत्त्व पाकर वह एक तीर्थ-क्षेत्र में परिणत हो गया ।

    शिरडी की नारियां भी परम भाग्यशालिनी है, जिनका उनपर असीम और अभिन्न विश्वास के परे है । आठों पहर-स्नान करते, पीसते, अनाज निकालते, गृहकार्य करते हुये वे उनकी कीर्ति का गुणगान किया करती थी । उनके प्रेम की उपमा ही क्या हो सकती है । वे अत्यन्त मधुर गायन करती थी, जिससे गायकों और श्रोतागण के मन को परम शांति मिलती थी ।

    बाबा द्वारा टीका

    किसी को स्वप्न में भी ज्ञात न था कि बाबा संस्कृत के भी ज्ञाता है । एक दिन नानासाहेब चाँदोरकर को गीता के एक श्लोक का अर्थ समझाकर उन्होंने लोगों को विस्मय में डाल दिया । इसका संक्षिप्त वर्णन सेवानिवृत्त मामलतदार श्री. बीय व्ही. देव ने मराठी साईलीला पत्रिका के भाग 4, (स्फुट विषय पृष्ठ 563) में छपवाया है । इसका संक्षिप्त विवरण Sai Baba’s Charters and Sayings पुस्तक के 61वें पृष्ठ पर और The Wonderous Saint Sai Baba के पृष्ठ 36 पर भी छपा है । ये दोनों पुस्तकें श्री. बी. व्ही. नरसिंह स्वामी द्घारा रचित है । श्री. बी. व्ही. देव ने अंग्रेजी में तारीख 27-9-1936 को एक वत्तक्व्य दिया है, जो कि नरसिंह स्वामी द्घारा रचित पुस्तक के भक्तों के अनुभव, भाग 3 में छापा गया है । श्री. देव को इस विषय की प्रथम सूचना नानासाहेब चाँदोरकर वेदान्त के विद्घान विघार्थियों में से एक थे । उन्होंने अनेक टीकाओं के साथ गीता का अध्ययन भी किया था तथा उन्हें अपने इस ज्ञान का अहंकार भी था । उनका मत था कि बाबा संस्कृत भाषा से सर्वथा अनभिज्ञ है । इसीलिये बाबा ने उनके इस भ्रम का निवारण करने का विचार किया । यह उस समय की बात है, जब भक्तगण अल्प संख्या में आते थे । बाबा भक्तों से एकान्त में देर तक वार्तालाप किया करते थे ।

    नानासाहेब इस समय बाबा की चरण-सेवा कर रहे थे और अस्पष्ट शब्दों में कुछ गुनगुना रहे थे ।

    बाबा – नाना, तुम धीरे-धीरे क्या कह रहे हो ।
    नाना – मैं गीता के एक श्लोक का पाठ कर रहा हूँ ।
    बाबा – कौन सा श्लोक है वह ।
    नाना – यह भगवदगीता का एक श्लोक है ।
    बाबा – जरा उसे उच्च स्वर में कहो ।
    तब नाना भगवदगीता के चौथे अध्याय का 34वाँ श्लोक कहने लगे ः-

    “तद्घिद्घि प्रणिपातेन परिप्रश्नेन सेवया ।
    उपदेक्ष्यन्ति ते ज्ञानं ज्ञानिनस्तत्वदर्शिनः ।।“

    बाबा – नाना, क्या तुम्हें इसका अर्थ विदित है ।
    नाना – जी, महाराज ।
    बाबा – यदि विदित है तो मुझे भी सुनाओ ।
    नाना – इसका अर्थ है – तत्व को जानने वाले ज्ञानी पुरुषों को भली प्रकार दंडवत् कर, सेवा और निष्कपट भाव से किये गये प्रश्न द्घारा उस ज्ञान को जान । वे ज्ञानी, जिन्हें सद्घस्तु (ब्रहम्) की प्राप्ति हो चुकी है, तुझे ज्ञान का उपदेश देंगें ।

    बाबा – नाना, मैं इस प्रकार का संकुल भावार्थ नहीं चाहता । मुझे तो प्रत्येक शब्द और उसका भाषांतरित उच्चारण करते हुए व्याकरणसम्मत अर्थ समझाओ ।

    अब नाना एक-एक शब्द का अर्थ समझाने लगे ।
    बाबा – नाना, क्या केवल साष्टांग नमस्कार करना ही पर्याप्त है ।
    नाना – नमस्कार करने के अतिरिक्त मैं प्रणिपात का कोई दूसरा अर्थ नहीं जानता ।
    बाबा – परिप्रश्न का क्या अर्थ है ।
    नाना – प्रश्न पूछना ।
    बाबा – प्रश्न का क्या अर्थ है ।
    नाना – वही (प्रश्न पूछना) ।
    बाबा – यदि परिप्रश्न और प्रश्न दोनों का अर्थ एक ही है, तो फिर व्यास ने परिउपसर्ग का प्रयोग क्यों किया क्या व्यास की बुद्घि भ्रष्ट हो गई थी ।
    नाना – मुझे तो परिप्रश्न का अन्य अर्थ विदित नहीं है ।
    बाबा – सेवा । किस प्रकार की सेवा से यहाँ आशय है ।
    नाना – वही जो हम लोग सदा आपकी करते रहते है ।
    बाबा – क्या यह सेवा पर्याप्त है ।
    नाना – और इससे अधिक सेवा का कोई विशिष्ट अर्थ मुझे ज्ञात नही है ।
    बाबा – दूसरी पंक्ति के उपदेक्ष्यंति ते ज्ञानं में क्या तुम ज्ञान शब्द के स्थान पर दूसरे शब्द का प्रयोग कर इसका अर्थ कह सकते हो ।
    नाना – जी हाँ ।
    बाबा – कौन सा शब्द ।
    नाना – अज्ञानम् ।
    बाबा – ज्ञानं के बजाय उस शब्द को जोड़कर क्या इस श्लोक का अर्थ निकलता है ।
    नाना – जी नहीं, शांकर भाष्य में इस प्रकार की कोई व्याख्या नहीं है ।
    बाबा – नहीं है, तो क्या हुआ । यदि अज्ञान शब्द के प्रयोग से कोई उत्तम अर्थ निकल सकता है तो उसमें क्या आपत्ति है ।
    नाना – मैं नहीं जानता कि उसमें अज्ञान शब्द का किस प्रकार प्रयोग होगा ।
    बाबा – कृष्ण ने अर्जुन को क्यों ज्ञानियों या तत्वदर्शियों को नमस्कार करने, उनसे प्रश्न पूछने और सेवा करने का उपदेश किया था । क्या स्वयं कृष्ण तत्वदर्शी नहीं थे । वस्तुतः स्वयं ज्ञान स्वरुप ।
    नाना – जी हाँ, वे ज्ञानावतार थे । परन्तु मुझे यह समझ में नहीं आता कि उन्होंने अर्जुन से अन्य ज्ञानियों के लिये क्यों कहा ।
    बाबा – क्या तुम्हारी समझ में नहीं आया ।

    अब नाना हतभ्रत हो गये । उनका घमण्ड चूर हो चुका था । तब बाबा स्वयं इस प्रकार अर्थ समझाने लगे ।

    1. ज्ञानियों को केवल साष्टांग नमस्कार करना पर्याप्त नहीं है । हमें सदगुरु के प्रति अनन्य भाव से शरणागत होना चाहिये ।

    2. केवल प्रश्न पूछना पर्याप्त नहीं । किसी कुप्रवृत्ति या पाखंड, या वाक्य-जाल में फँसाने, या कोई त्रुटि निकालने की भावना से प्रेरित होकर प्रश्न नहीं करना चाहिये, वरन् प्रश्न उत्सुतकापूर्वक केवल मोक्ष या आध्यात्मिक पथ पर उन्नति प्राप्त करने की भावना से ही प्रेरित होकर करना चाहिये ।

    3. मैं तो सेवा करने या अस्वीकार करने में पूर्ण स्वतंत्र हूँ, जो ऐसी भावना से कार्य करता है, वह सेवा नहीं कही जा सकती । उसे अनुभव करना चाहिये कि मुझे अपने शरीर पर कोई अधिकार नहीं है । इस शरीर पर तो गुरु का ही अधिकार है ौर केवल उनकी सेवा के निमित्त ही वह विघमान है ।

    इस प्रकार आचरण करने से तुम्हें सदगुरु द्घारा ज्ञान की प्राप्ति हो जायेगी, जैसा कि पूर्व श्लोक में बताया गया है । नाना को यह समझ में नहीं आ सका कि गुरु किस प्रकार अज्ञान की शिक्षा देते है ।

    बाबा – ज्ञान का उपदेश कैसा है । अर्थात् भविष्य में प्राप्त होने वाली आत्मानुभूति की शिक्षा । अज्ञान का नाश करना ज्ञान है । (गीता के श्लोक 18-66 पर ज्ञानेश्वरी भाष्य की ओवी 1396 में इस प्रकार वर्णन है – हे अर्जुन । यदि तुम्हारी निद्रा और स्वप्न भंग हो, तब तुम स्वयं हो । वह इसी प्रकार है । गीता के अध्याय 5-16 के आगे टीका में लिखा है – क्या ज्ञान में अज्ञान नष्ट करने के अतिरिक्त कोई और भेद भी है ) । अंधकार नष्ट करने का अर्थ प्रकाश है । जब हम द्घैत नष्ट करने की चर्चा करते है, तो हम अद्घैत की बात करते है । जब हम अंधकार नष्ट करने की बात करते है तो उसका अर्थ है कि प्रकाश की बात करते है । यदि हम अद्घैत की स्थिति का अनुभव करना चाहते है तो हमें द्घैत की भावना नष्ट करनी चाहिये। यही अद्घैत स्थिति प्राप्त हने का लक्षण है । द्घैत में रहकर अद्घैत की चर्चा कौन कर सकता है । जब तक वैसी स्थिति प्राप्त न हो, तब तक क्या उसका कोई अनुभव कर सकता है ।

    शिष्य श्री सदगुरु के समान ही ज्ञान की मूर्ति है । उन दोनों में केवल अवस्था, उच्च अनुभूति, अदभुत अलौकिक सत्य, अद्घितीय योग्यता और ऐश्वर्य योग में भिन्नता होती है । सदगुरु निर्गुण निराार सच्चिदानंद है । वस्तुतः वे केवल मनुष्य जाति और विश्व के कल्याण के निमित्त स्वेच्छापूर्वक मानव शरीर धारण करते है, परन्तु नर-देह धारण करने पर भी उनकी सत्ता की अनंतता में कोई बाधा उपस्थित नहीं होती । उनकी आत्मोपलब्धि, लाभ, दैविक शक्ति और ज्ञान एक-से रहते है । शिष्य का भी तो यथार्थ में वही स्वरुप है, परन्तु अनगिनत जन्मों के कारण उसे अज्ञान उत्पन्न हो जाता है और उसी के वशीभूत होकर उसे भ्रम हो जाता है तथा अपने शुदृ चैतन्य स्वरुप की विस्मृति हो जाती है । गीता का अध्याय 5 देखो । अज्ञानेनावृतं ज्ञानं तेन मुहृन्ति जन्तवः । जैसा कि वहाँ बतलाया गया है, उसे भ्रम हो जाता है कि मैं जीव हूँ, एक प्राणी हूँ, दुर्बल और अस्सहाय हूँ । गुरु इस अज्ञानरुपी जड़ को काटकर फेंक देता है और इसीलिये उसे उपदेश करना पड़ता है । ऐसे शिष्य को जो जन्म-जन्मांतरों से यह धारणा करता आया है कि मैं तो जीव, दुर्बल और असहाय हूँ, गुरु सैकड़ों जन्मों तक ऐसी शिक्षा देते है कि तुम ही ईश्वर हो, सर्वशक्तिमान् और समर्थ हो, तब कहीं जाकर उसे किंचित मात्र भास होता है कि यथार्थ में मैं ही ईश्वर हूँ । सतत भ्रम में रहने के कारण ही उसे ऐसा भास होता है कि मैं शरीर हूँ, एक जीव हूँ, तथा ईश्वर और यह विश्व मुझ से एक भिन्न वस्तु है । यह तो केवल एक भ्रम मात्र है, जो अनेक जन्म धारण करने के कारण उत्पन्न हो गया है । कर्मानुसार प्रत्येक प्राणी को सुखःदुख की प्राप्ति होती है । इस भ्रम, इस त्रुटि और इस अज्ञान की जड़ को नष्ट करने के लिये हमें स्वयं अपने से प्रश्न करना चाहिये कि यह अज्ञान कैसे पैदा हो गया । वह अज्ञान कहाँ है और इस त्रुटि का दिग्दर्शन कराने को ही उपदेश कहते है ।

    अज्ञान के नीचे लिखे उदाहरण है –

    1. मैं एक जीव (प्राणी) हूँ ।
    2. शरीर ही आत्मा है । (मैं शरीर हूँ)
    3. ईश्वर, विश्व और जीव भिन्न-भिन्न तत्व है ।
    4. मैं ईश्वर नहीं हूँ ।
    5. शरीर आत्मा नहीं है, इसका अबोध ।
    6. इसका ज्ञान न होना कि ईश्वर, विश्व और जीव सब एक ही है ।

    जब तक इन त्रुटियों का उसे दिग्दर्शन नहीं कराया जाता, तब तक शिष्य को यह कभी अनुभव नहीं हो सकता कि ईश्वर, जीव और शरीर क्या है, उनमें क्या अन्योन्याश्रित सम्बन्ध है तथा वे परस्पर भिन्न है या अभिन्न है अथवा एक ही है । इस प्रकार की शिक्षा देना और भ्रम को दूर करना ही अज्ञान का ज्ञानोपदेश कहलाता है । अब प्रश्न यह है कि जीव जो स्वयं ज्ञान-मूर्ति है, उसे ज्ञान की क्या आवश्यकता है । उपदेश का हेतु तो केवल त्रुटि को उसकी दृष्टि में लाकर अज्ञान को नष्ट करना है ।

    बाबा ने आगे कहा –

    1. प्रणिपात का अर्थ है शरणागति ।
    2. शरणागत होना चाहिये तन, मन, धन से (अर्थात् अनन्य भाव से) ।
    3. कृष्ण अन्य ज्ञानियों को ओर क्यों संकेत करते है । सदभक्त के लिये तो प्रत्येक तत्व वासुदेव है । (भगवदगीता अ. 7-19 अर्थात् कोई भी गुरु अपने भक्त के लिये कृष्ण है) और गुरु शिष्य को वासुदेव मानता है और कृष्ण इन दोनों को अपने प्राण और आत्मा ।
    (भगवदगीता अ. 7-18 पर ज्ञानदेव की टीका) चूँकि श्रीकृष्ण को विदित था कि ऐसे अनेक भक्त और गुरु विघमान है, इसलिये उनका महत्व बढ़ाने के लिये ही श्रीकृष्ण ने अर्जुन से ऐसा उल्लेख किया ।

    समाधि-मन्दिर का निर्माण

    बाबा जो कुछ करना चाहते थे, उसकी चर्चा वे कभी नहीं करते थे, प्रत्युत् आसपास ऐसा वातावरण और परिस्थिति निर्माण कर देते थे कि लोगों को उनका मंथर, परन्तु निश्चित परिणाम देखकर बड़ा अचम्भा होता था । समाधि-मन्दिर इस विषय का उदाहरण है । नागपुर के प्रसिद्घ लक्षाधिपति श्रीमान् बापूसाहेब बूटी सहकुटुम्ब शिरडी में रहते थे । एक बार उन्हें विचार आया कि शिरडी में स्वयं का एक वाड़ा होना चाहिए । कुछ समय के पश्चात जब वे दीक्षित वाड़े में निद्रा ले रहे थे तो उन्हें एक स्वप्न हुआ । बाबा ने स्वप्न में आकर उनसे कहा कि तुम अपना एक वाड़ा और एक मन्दिर बनवाओ । शामा भी वहीं शयन कर रहा था और उसने भी ठीक वैसा ही स्वप्न देखा । बापूसाहेब जब उठे तो उन्होंने शामा को रुदन करते देखकर उससे रोने का कारण पूछा ।

    तब शामा कहने लगा –

    अभी-अभी मुझे एक स्वप्न आया था कि बाबा मेरे बिलकुल समीप आये और स्पष्ट शब्दों में कहने लगे कि मन्दिर के साथ वाड़ा बनवाओ । मैं समस्त भक्तों की इच्छाएँ पूर्ण करुँगा । बाबा के मधुर और प्रेमपूर्ण शब्द सुनकर मेरा प्रेम उमड़ पड़ा तथा गला रुँध गया और मेरी आँखों से अश्रुओं की धारा बहने लगी । इसलिये मैं जोर से रोने लगा । बापूसाहेब बूटी को आश्चर्य हुआ कि दोनों के स्वप्न एक से ही है । धनाढ्य तो वे थे ही, उन्होंने वाड़ा निर्माण करने का निश्चय कर लिया और शामा के साथ बैठकर एक नक्शा खींचा । काकासाहेब दीक्षित ने भी उसे स्वीकृत किया और जब नक्शा बाबा के समक्ष प्रस्तुत किया गया तो उन्होंने भी तुरंत स्वीकृति दे दी । तब निर्माण कार्य प्रारम्भ कर दिया गया और शामा की देखरेख में नीचे मंजिल, तहखाना और कुआँ बनकर तैयार हो गया । बाबा भी लेंडी को आते-जाते समय परामर्श दे दिया करते थे । आगे यतह कार्य बापूसाहेब जोग को सौंप दिया गया । जब कार्य इसी तरह चल ही रहा था, उसी समय बापूसाहेब जोग को एक विचार आया कि कुछ खुला स्थान भी अवश्य होना चाहिये, बीचोंबीच मुरलीधर की मूर्ति की भी स्थापना की जाय । उन्होंने अपना विचार शामा को प्रकट किया तता बाबा से अनुमति प्राप्त करने को कहा । जब बाबा वाड़े के पास से जा रहे थे, तभी शामा ने बाबा से प्रश्न कर दिया । शामा का प्रश्न सुनकर बाबा ने स्वीकृति देते हुए कहा कि जब मन्दिर का कार्य पूर्ण हो जायगा, तब मैं स्वयं वहाँ निवास करुँगा, और वाड़े की ओर दृष्टिपात करते हुए कहा जब वाड़ा सम्पूर्ण बन जायगा, तब हम सब लोग उसका उपभोग करेंगे । वहीं रहेंगे, घूमेंगे, फिरेंगे और एक दूसरे को हृदय से लगायेंगे तथा आनन्दपूर्वक विचरेंगे । जब शामा ने बाबा से पूछा कि क्या यह मूर्ति के मध्य कक्ष की नींव के कार्य आरम्भ का शुभ मुहूर्त्त है । तब उन्होंने स्वीकारात्मक उत्तर दे दिया । तभी शामा ने एक नारियल लाकर फोड़ा और कार्य प्रारम्भ कर दिया । ठीक समय में सब कार्य पूर्ण हो गया और मुरलीधर की एक सुन्दर मूर्ति बनवाने का प्रबन्ध किया गया । अभी उसका निर्माण कार्य प्रारम्भ भी न हो पाया था कि एक नवीन घटना घटित हो गई । बाबा की स्थिति चिंताजक हो गई और ऐसा दिखने लगा कि वे अब देह त्याग देंगे । बापूसाहेब बहुत उदास और निराश से हो गये । उन्होंने सोचा कि यदि बाबा चले गये तो बाड़ा उनके पवित्र चरण-स्पर्श से वंचित रह जायगा और मेरा सब (लगभग एक लाख) रुपया व्यर्थ ही जायेगा, परन्तु अंतिम समय बाबा के श्री मुख से निकले हुए वचनों ने (मुझे बाड़े में ही रखना) केवल बूटीसाहेब को ही सान्त्वना नहीं पहुँचाई, वरन् अन्य लोगों को भी शांति मिली । कुछ समय के पश्चात् बाबा का पवित्र शरीर मुरलीधर की मूर्ति के स्थान पर रख दिया गया । बाबा स्वयं मुरलीधर बन गये और वाड़ा साईबाबा का समाधि मंदिर । उनकी अगाध लीलाओं की थाह कोई न पा सका । श्री. बापूसाहेब बूटी धन्य है, जिनके वाड़े में बाबा का दिव्य और पवित्र पार्थिव शरीर अब विश्राम कर रहा है ।

    ।। श्री सद्रगुरु साईनाथार्पणमस्तु । शुभं भवतु ।।

  • Laugh it off the Bongla Way

    A is for Awpheesh (as in Office). This is where the average Kolkakatan goes and spends a day hard at work. And if he works for the ‘Vest Bengal Gawrment’
    he will arrive at 10, wipe his forehead till 11, have a tea break at 12, throw around a few files at 12.30, break for lunch at 1, smoke the 7th unfiltered cigarette at 2, break for 5th cup of tea at 3, sleep sitting down at 4 and go home at 4:30. It’s a hard life!

    B is for Bhision. For some reason many Bengalis don’t have good bhision. In fact in Kolkata most people are wearing spectacles all the time….Bhishon Bhalo and Bibhotso…. though means opposite …used for same situations.. depending on the Beauty of fairer
    sex…are close …almost in a tie for second spot….

    C is for Chappell. Currently, this is the Bengali word for the Devil,for the worst form of evil. In the night mothers put their kids to sleep saying, ‘Na ghumoley ebar Chappell eshey dhorey niye jabe.’

    D is for Debashish or any other name starting with Deb. By an ancient law every fourth Bengali Child has to be named Debashish. So you have a Debashish everywhere and trying to get creative they are also called Deb, Debu, Deba with variations like Debopriyo,
    Deboprotim, Debojyoti, etc. thrown in at times….as creations of God himself !!

    E is for Eeesh. This is a very common Bengali exclamation made famous by Aishwarya Rai in the movie Devdas. It is estimated that on an average a Bengali, especially Bengali women, use eeesh 10,089 times every year. ‘Ei Morechhey’ is a close second to Eeesh.

    F is for Feeesh. These are creatures that swim in rivers and seas and are a favourite food of the Bengalis. Despite the fact that a fish market has such strong smells, with one sniff a Bengali knows if a fish is all right. If not, he will say ‘eeesh what feeesh
    is theesh!’

    G is for Good name. Every Bengali boy will have a good name like Debashish or Deboprotim and a pet name like Motka, Bhombol, Thobla, etc. While every Bengali girl will have pet names like Tia, Tuktuki, Mishti, Khuku, et cetera.

    H is for Harmonium. This Bengali equivalent of a rock guitar. Take four Bengalis and a Harmonium and you have the successors to The Bheatles!

    I is for Ileesh. This is a feeesh with 10,987 bones which would kill any ordinary person, but which the Bengalis eat with releeesh!

    J is for Jhola. No selfrespecting Bengali is complete without his Jhola. It is a shapeless cloth bag where he keeps all his belongings and he fits an amazing number of things in. Even as you read this there are two million jholas bobbling around Kolkata, and
    they all look exactly the same! Note that ‘Jhol’with mysterious condiments.. . as in Maachher Jhol is a close second. Jhaamela and Jachhetai are distant 3rd and 4th

    K is for Kee Kaando! It used to be the favourite Bengali exclamation till eeesh took over because of Aishwarya Rai.Kee mushkil is a close second.

    L is for Lungi, the dress for all occasions. People in Kolkata manage to play football and cricket wearing it not to mention the daily trip in the morning to the local bajaar. Now there is talk of a lungi expedition to Mt Everest.

    M is for Minibaas. These are dangerous half buses whose antics would effortlessly frighten the living daylights out of all James Bond stuntmen as well as Formula 1 race car drivers.

    N is for Nangto. This is the Bengali word for Naked. It is the most interesting naked word in any language!

    O is for Oil. The Bengalis believe that a touch of mustard oil will cure anything from cold (oil in the nose), to earache (oil in the ear), to cough (oil on the throat) to piles (oil you know where!).

    P is for Phootball. This is always a phavourite phassion of the

    Kolkattan. Every Bengali is born an expert in this game. The two biggest clubs there are MOHUNBAGAN and
    East Bengal and when they play the city comes to a stop.

    Q is for Koshchen (question) as in “Mamatadi koshchens Cheap Ministaar in Writaars Buiding.”

    R is for Robi Thakur. Many many years ago Rabindranath got the Nobel Prize. This has given the right to all Bengalis no matter where they are to frame their acceptance speeches as if they were directly related to the great poet and walk with their head held
    high. This also gives Bengalis the birthright to look down at Delhi and Mumbai and of course ‘all non-Bengawlees’! Note that ‘Rawshogolla’ comes a close second!

    S is for Shourav. Now that they finally produced a genuine cricketer, that too a captain, Bengalis think that he should be allowed to play until he is 70 years old.

    T is for Trams. Hundred years later there are still trams in Kolkata. Of course if you are in a hurry it’s faster to walk….Trams are still existing in Paris too…….you see !

    U is for Aambrela. When a Bengali baby is born he is handed one.

    V is for Bhaayolence. Bengalis are the most non-violent violent people around. When an accident happens they will fold up their sleeves, shout and scream and curse and abuse, “Chherey De Bolchhi” but the last time someone actually hit someone was in 1939.

    W is for Water. For three months of the year the city is underwater and every year for the last 200 years the authorities are taken by surprise by this!

    X is for X’mas. It’s very big in Kolkata, with Park Street fully lit

    up and all Bengalis agreeing that they must eat cake that day.

    Y is for Yesshtaarday. Which is always better than today for a Bengali (see R for Robi Thakur)?. It is also for Jubraj Shingh and Joga.

    Z is for Jebra, Joo, and Jipper.

  • Natural Food Recipes

    With unhealthy weight widely accepted and kind 2 diabetes flaming amongst adults and children as well, somewhere there has to be an end to it all. Nevertheless, how and where does this take place? Is it a problem how the federal and state governments can absolve? No, it has to start with personal accountability and a willingness to change the way in which food is viewed. Aspartame, monosodium glutamate, food colorings, and every some other preservative in between have to be considered extremely toxic to the body. Without households taking a stand, not guilty children will be delivered to their graves at an early age. The only way to make the required changes to put an end to preventable diseases (such as type 2 diabetes) is by using exclusively natural food recipes whilst cooking.

    What is a natural Asian Food recipes? It is a recipke that contains solely total food ingredients. The best strategy to tell if a menu is processed or perhaps artificial is by the components. If it consists of foods that are grouped together and have a long life expectancy with more than a few substances, then it is not an all-natural food. Also, those challenging words on the food brands are usually artificial. That’s a great indicator of methods real it is. For instance, what would the food label on a tomato read? All of that is contained in a new tomato is a tomato. Actually, the concept is quite simple. When merging ingredients into a recipke, those ingredients should typically only be on their own. That realization offers a wide variety of possibilities even though concocting in the kitchen. It makes that an exciting experience to prepare again!

    Some of the increased challenges that come whenever making natural food recipes are soups based recipes. This is most of the case because homemade broths typically take planning along with preparation to have readily available. But, while organizing the weekly menu, simply plan to help make homemade beef broth along with chicken broth to use throughout soups the following day or two. In fact, making an all natural Chicken Noodle Soup is pretty simple and can even be build in the slow cooker. Simply by adding 4 mugs homemade chicken broth, 2 cups water, One chicken breast, 2 servings of carrots and celery, 2 teaspoons of thyme, ? tsp of black pepper, 2 teaspoons of sea sodium, and 1/3 package involving fettuccine noodles, a delicious organic and natural chicken noodle soup continues to be concocted. Thankfully this eliminates of any form of Monosodium glutamate along with any other additional preservative. This soups is so tantalizing for the taste buds that it is difficult to quit on one serving. Also, by making this homemade soup there will not arise any nasty side effects (such as MSG headaches) have a tendency to come from the artificial fowl noodle recipes.

  • Probiotics and Kidney Health

    Kibow® Biotics metabolizes nitrogenous waste that has diffused from the bloodstream into the bowel. Nitrogenous wastes are utilized by Kibow® Biotics as nutrients. As probiotics grow and multiply, they consume more nitrogenous waste and therefore effectively help maintain healthy kidney function.
    When these waste products accumulate in high concentrations in the blood, they become highly toxic and can cause severe damage to many organ systems if they are not properly excreted.

    Due to the overloaded and impaired kidneys, a buildup of poisonous wastes occurs in the bloodstream. Certain probiotic microorganisms can utilize urea, uric acid and creatinine and other toxins as its nutrients for growth. They then multiply, thereby creating a greater diffusion of these uremic toxins from the circulating blood across the lining of the intestinal walls into the bowel. This increased microbial growth is excreted along with the feces (which is normally 50% microbes by weight).

    Enteric toxin reduction technology uses probiotic organisms to transform the colon into a blood cleansing agent, which, with the aid of microbes, indirectly removes toxic wastes and helps eliminate them as fecal matter. Consequently, it is possible to maintain a healthy kidney function with the oral use of Kibow® Biotics.

    The patented, proprietary probiotics in Kibow® Biotics have been clinically tested and shown to be safe, effective and free of serious side effects when taken for as long as six months.

    Patented Enteric Toxin Reduction Technology ? How it Works

    Selection of Bacteria
    We use three probiotic microbial strains of beneficial bacteria (S.thermophilus(KB19), L.acidophilus (KB27) and B.longum (KB31)). Our microbes are natural occurring and not genetically modified. They are screened, selected and grown under uremic conditions, so that they have a higher affinity for uremic toxins. These microbes are specifically from classes already approved for human consumption and are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) under US FDA guidelines.

    In our body, an equilibrium of uremic toxins normally exists between the blood and the colon’s lumen (GI tract) which is higher during diseased conditions in the bowel. Our patented enteric probiotic technology utilizes these toxins to grow and a gradient concentration is generated which drives a passive diffusion of more toxins from the blood to the colon’s lumen.

    The actual mechanism takes place in the large intestines. As the kidney?s function slows down, nitrogenous wastes build up in the blood and diffuse into the intestinal fluid by natural physiological process.

    1. When the kidney becomes compromised, uremic toxins build up in the blood. Large numbers of these toxins diffuse into the colon because of the extensive network of blood vessels surrounding it.
    2. Following a journey in the upper GI, Probiotic microbes are released from a enteric coated capsule and enter the large intestine into the ileo-caecal region.
    3. Once in the colon, the microbes target and metabolize the uremic nitrogenous wastes as nutrients for its growth.
    4. The microbes which have a high affinity for the toxins then metabolize them as nutrients. As they metabolize the uremic toxins, the microbes begin to multiply and this in turn allows for even a greater diffusion of toxins into the bowel.
    5. Eventually the metabolized toxins are carried down through the bowel and out of the body as solid waste, sparing the compromised kidneys of the burden.

    *Please note Colon, bowel and large intestine are the same organ known by different names


    Recommended Dosage:

    Take 1-3 capsules daily with every meal or as recommended by your physican

  • Story with a moral

    The teacher gave an assignment to her fifth grade class : Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it. The next day, the kids came back and, one by one, began to tell their stories. There were all the regular types of stuff: spilled milk and pennies saved. But then the teacher realized that only Janie was left.

    “Janie, do you have a story to share?’
