Share Author: Manisha.Rautela.Bisht on 9:26 PM
Dear Readers
A Happy Guruwar (Happy Thursday -Sai day),
Lot of write up are being written sharing Baba's teaching and His leela which His devotees experienced than and now…..but somewhere the importance of Naam Jaap was not being mentioned and while I was thinking to start next write up on Afternoon Aarti which of course would take lot of time ,I was wondering what will be my next post ???? and started thinking ???!

I was searching for some songs in computer when I came across one of my folder where I had saved my Sai Naam Jaap write up.With blessing of Baba I was actively participating in Naam Jaap and with Baba's grace trying to involve more Sai devotees to participate in Naam Jaap.

In this seva staunch sai bhakt Shri D. Shankariah Ji (who is pioneer in Global Sai Naam Jaap )was directing and encouraging me and many many Sai devotees across the globe to do Sai Naam Jaap .He would send me write up and direction on what all should be mentioned for Sai Naam Jaap so that more and more devotees can benefit from Sai Naam Jaap.

This was a very important topic and could not be neglected or ignored for some other time so I started my write up there and than.Here few of the points are written as it is as Shri D.Shankariah ji had mailed me ,all the golden points mentioned here are for benefit of Sai Bhakts and one must try to follow it after reading .

Video:Sai Dhun -Jagjit Singh :

We all in our own small way try to chant sacred name of our Lord Sai . In our rough time, in our tough times or in our good time the name of Lord is with us always. Those who have read or read Sai Satcharitra must be aware what Lord Sainath in His immortal Sri Sai Satcharitra has stated ....

"The simple remembrance of my name as Sai, Sai will do away with sins of speech and hearing."(Chap3).

"Leave off all your cleverness and always remember Sai,Sai.If you did that all your shackles would be removed and you would be free."(Chap 10).

"If you always say 'Sai,Sai",I shall take you over the seven seas,believe in these words and you will be certainly benifited."(Chap 13).

And what a Sai Incident today when I randomly opened Sai Satcharitra for sending Thursday message to Sai groups 13th Chapter opened where Baba's saying which is mentioned here is given.

Keeping Baba's saying in mind here are few more golden points...

video:Sai Ram Sai Shyam-Jagjit Singh:

The Lord Himself has settled the nature of His Worship for every age. Chanting of His Holy name is the prescribed sadhana for the present age. This is the age
of sins sorrows, natural and man made calamities,jealousy and hatred dominate the human mind’s.Raghava Chaitanya,author of the book "Divine Name " hasmentioned the following facts useful to everyone.

1. The Holy Name is the Divine medicine to save us
from the chronic disease of worldliness.

video:Sai Ram Sai Ram Jai Jai Sai Ram:

2. The Divine Name is the most powerful remedy for
delivering one from the sinister influences of
Infatuation and ignorance.

3. Taking recourse to constant chanting of the Divine
Name one becomes eligible for the grace of the Lord.

4. The Divine medicine strikes at the very root of a
terrible suffering of this repeated cycle of birth and

5. The Holy Name is not a mere composition of Sanskrit
alphabets, It is pregnant with many mystic
potentialities. It attracts the Utterer and the Hearer.
This Divine Nama is the only wealth that multiplies
when stolen.

6. When the dying Ajamil by unintentionally uttering
the Name of Sri Hari while calling his son by His
name, could attain Vaikunta Dham,how much more
beneficial would the result be if the Name itself is
chanted with Implicit faith.

video:Om Shri Sai Nathya Namaha:

7. The glory of the Divine Name lies beyond the scope
of Human intelligence and arguments.

8.If one believes in God, he must necessarily believe
the word of God as well. Mere lip service either to the
Lord or His Saying ie., the Sastras,would not serve
the real purpose."

video:Hari Om Hari Om Sai Om Sai Om :

Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh had said that nama smaran is the 'Namopathy',the best of all naturopathy, homeopathy and allopathy medicines in curing the physical and mental ailments. He gave the gospel 'DIN' that means Do It Now.

H.H Sai Padananda Radha Krishna Swamyji has said "Nama japa and Sankeertan are the most efficacious recipes for steadying and purifying the mind,for bringing the vagaries under control.Any Nama japa is a Veritable chintamani (a gem believed to yield the fruits of one's desires) it can cure diseases, bring wealth and progeny, avoid calamities and misfortunes and the practice of japa can be turned to whatever use we may like to make it.Essentially,it can bring God(Sai) within the reach of those who practise it." It is also said " God Realization will not spring out of one's heart, if the seed of the name is not sown in the proper soil of a saintly and devoted heart, carefully sifted by the process of renunciation, watered by the tears of Love and Repentance and guarded always by good, moral character."(Sai Ananda)

video:Shri Ganesham Sai Namavali:

The gospel of Sri Ramakrishna says "A devotee of Ram Nam becomes egoless. One must put heart and soul into the chanting of Ram Nam"

video:Ghale bhajan Sai Bhajan:

Nama japa is for keeping remembrance of God unbroken.The Name is the link between the devotee and God.Take the Name with all the faith you are capable of.Repeat it without a moment's break, whether you are in the kitchen or engaged in fetching water, taking bath, walking in the streets or doing any physical work. Japa must be done with intense Love and devotion for God and not as a Discipline imposed on you by somebody else. Rhythm is the most important factor in a Mantra. The Name or Mantra by itself is to be taken as God.A separate form of His need not be meditated upon. The sound of the Name is 'Nadha-Brahma or Shabda Brahma'. Divine Name is the key by which you can unlock the gates to the kingdom of immortal peace and Bliss

video:Sai Naam Hai Amrit Ka Pyala :

No rule and regulations for doing Divine Nama Smaran. No fees of course, Faith and Patience. Let them Concentrate on the sound of 'OM SAI SRI SAI JAYA JAYA SAI' with a pure mind and heart. Rest Baba will do.

video:Hai Sai Naam Pyaraa:

I am starting all over again Sai Naam Jaap " Om SAI SRI SAI JAYA JAYA SAI " today and I hope many of you shall join in ...
Om Sai Ram .

Start Naam Jaap and in no time you can make your first step in rejection of worldly pleasures. In fact reading Sri Sai Sachiratra (or) Sri Sai Leelamrutam may help you very much
