13. The Ultimate Reality
The Ultimate Reality is without a form,
So the seers prolclaim.
What they say,
Must surely be true.
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.
