SHIRDI SAI BABA
The world of ours moves around the sun,
Thus counting the day and night as one,
But what happens in the total Universe,
No one knows as it remains a surprise.
The primitive man knew nothing,
Except eating, mating, and sleeping,
And it’s the scientific advancement,
That took him up to a greater height.
For knowledge, right from the Universe
Down to the sub-atom level, he studies,
But what a mystery every matter is,
Puzzled he remains when it reveals.
So, with his incomplete knowledge,
He repeatedly tries, at every stage,
To find new-new things to update,
What he knew already till that date.
Is there an end for this search?
No, it’s impossible for one to reach
The final goal on this vast subject,
Due to its expansion day and night.
Thus our experience of the universe,
Is limited to a fraction of what it is,
That too limited to our experiments,
And from the ancient Gurus’ records.
The life of Sri Sai Baba of Shiridi,
Is unique in that he teaches about
Omnipresent Spirit in simple words,
From his own practical experiences.
No one knows his parentage,
His caste, creed at any stage,
As this anonymity helped well
His teachings to all the people.
The Mosque in which he lived.
As Hindu Dwarakamai he named,
And he was also a fakir to Muslims.
Saying “Allah Malik” before them.
He had laid for none any rules
Who were after material needs,
And he encouraged all people
To visit him out of their free will.
He gave a promise, “If you call
Me, after my death, be sure I’ll
From my Samadhi rise up then,
And rush to help you very soon.”
