Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy day of Guruvaar. Baba, You are near and far. You are nearer to the pure and sincere, but farthest to the passionate. You witness all our thoughts and actions. Baba, You are our unseen guest at every meal. You are the head of our house. The reality of God is Your universal existence. You are not responsible for the wealth of a man or for the poverty of another. Every one of us bear the fruits of our karmas. On this holy day, we appeal You to suppress our karmic troubles and supplement our karmic peace and tranquility in our life. We start our Guruvaar prayers by reading Your words in Satcharita.
Blessed, blessed is the company of the Sadguru! Who can describe his powers? When the memories of his words are recalled, one by one, I am inspired greatly!
If you pray to God with love, and serve the Guru and perform his puja, you will receive that knowledge which only the Guru has. All other means are useless.
This path of the world is full of confusion and dim. The words of the Guru shine like rays from a lamp to make it smooth and perceivable.
Guru is actually God himself. He is Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwar. Guru in reality is God Almighty. Guru is the Supreme Brahman.
Guru is the mother and Guru is the father. Guru is the protector when God's wrath is incurred. But when Guru is angry nobody can protect you. Remember this always.
Guru is the guide for worldly behaviour, the rituals and pilgrimages to holy places. He is the guide to what is right and wrong, and to practise non-attachment. He is the exponent of the Vedas and the Upanishads.
The Saints open up the inner eyes of the intellect and reveal the grandeur of the Inner Self. They fulfill all the wishes of the devotees. They are extremely tender at heart and compassionate.
They cause the passions to disappear. Even in sleep true knowledge pulsates. Because of their blessings, the twin fruits of self-denial and self-control are obtained.
If one is able to get close to a Saint, serve him and love him, like the wish-fulfilling tree, he fulfills all the wishes of the devotees and wards off all miseries.
Always practise truth; listen to the stories about the saints; bow down at the feet of the Saints. Sins will be washed away.
I bow down to Sree Ganesh
I bow down to Sree Saraswati
I bow down to the Guru
I bow down to the Family Deity
I bow down to Sree Sita-Ramachandra
I bow down to Sree Sadguru Sainath.
