Small thread on real sadhakas/Sadgurus like Shirdi Sai Baba or indeed Upasni maharaj.
Look at Shirdi Baba... literally begged for food from certain houses. Wore two pieces of cloth his whole life which he stitched again and again.
Destruction of the “false” is a certainty when one really starts going into deep spirituality. Suffering in fact may be intense. What is the Pramana for what I say? A: Remember Narsi Mehta? He says, that u sing his songs and you will be hit with chappals...
So... Shirdi Baba, lived in a dilapidated mosque.. called it Dwarkamai. I invite anybody in today’s time to try doing and saying such a thing. It’s impossible for you because the kind of Shakti such an act requires is too much for today’s Devmutts..
Then, installing bells in that mosque, then lighting Diyas in that mosque and in fact then doing aarti to Devi Devatas of Hindu faith there... today people can’t even imagine such a thing. But he did it years ago.
Not that he did not face opposition from certain fundamentalists.. one threatened to kill him... a 6:5 inch Pathan.. he quoted scripture to say that “this is sacrilege “ Shirdi Baba glanced at him casually when the Pathan tried to kill him.. the Pathan fell down paralysed.
Matlab imagine having no bodyguards as a “saint” in today’s times... Then a bandit was employed so Shirdi Baba could be murdered.. Tantya was his name.. he went to Dwarkamayi at midnight to do the deed. What happened?
The bandit found that Shirdi Baba’s body had been already cut into 9 parts... blood everywhere. Believing that someone else had already done the murder, (he had many enemies) the bandit went away. Next morning he was summoned by Shirdi Baba (hale and hearty and alive)
Duniya Jhukti hain, jhukane wala chahiye. This is the famed nava khanda sadhana mentioned in Aghora books and elsewhere... but in reality here was the proof. What happened? We will never know for sure. But this is true and documented with dates in Shirdi.
Will continue some other time.
A short blog on Shirdi Sai Baba with the link to my film screened in Germany, Austria and the USA...
In the film, many real incidents which occurred in Shirdi are described... one such incident is the one about the storm in Shirdi... it will amaze you to know that a real eye witness to this who was very young at that time... stayed in Mafatlal Bungalow in Pune... till the 1980’s
That particular person used to dress up in a kafni and with similar headgear... and he used to also narrate this completely impossible story of Shirdi Sain Baba which had nearly 5000 eye witnesses in 1911....
The only remainder of this story is Sai Baba’s Satka... which he hit on the walls of Dwarkamai three times..... that still remains and is shown in the film too.
Imagine ... his Hindu and Muslim devotees start fighting with each other on the night of his passing... and he appears in the dream of each and every one of them and says that “You are fighting... but I am still here”... THAT my friends is what a genuine Sadguru is made of...
If I were to make this film again today, I would incorporate a few changes to actually articulate what I wanted to say at the time... the last 7 minutes of the film is not quite exact in its articulation...
