13. The Ultimate Reality

The Ultimate Reality is without a form,

So the seers prolclaim.

What they say,

Must surely be true.

But Baba!

May I ask You a simple question?

To this moment

My eyes have carried your image alone

The heart has sang your praises

The soul has experienced celestial bliss

All out of your manifested form.

Have I to give it all up

In quest of what I haven’t seen

Nor anyone else seems to have seen.

May be this thought is a mere hallucination of the mind

Which keeps on playing mischief?

Shall I not be a fool

If I give up what I see

And my soul experiences

Entrapped in this physical frame?

Baba! I beseech you!

Not to allow such thoughts enter my mind

Let the ignorant fool within me

Remain content with what it experiences

Rather than make it run after the mirage

Of a make believe unsubstatatiated Truth.

Allow me to remain

The servant of a perfect Master,

You are !

14. Sai – the Ever Livng Master

O’ my Baba!

You attained Mahasamadhi on Oct. 15, 1918

Surrounded by a host of devotees

After offering the dakshina of rupees nice,

To Ma Laxmibai.

All present witnessed

Life ebbing out of the Body.

How deftly you enacted that scene!

For you became more active thereafter,

Than while in flesh and blood.

Countless experience your presence

At every turn of life

In ways innumerable.

Baba! What is this game,

You keep on playing?

Why do you wish to keep

Your devotees wrapped in the sheath of delusion,

When you are with them

At every step of their life.

Remove this veil of delusion

Take them into your ‘Sharan’

Bestow on them the virtues

Of love, compassion and fellow feeling

So that they stop quarreling amongst themselves,

And peace starts reigning on Mother Earth.
