Sai Baba Vrat for 9 Thursdays with procedure and Katha-English

Share Author: Manisha.Rautela.Bisht on 11:53 PM

Dear readers,

In the last post I had posted about Sai vrat with its procedure and Katha .Since readers need in English hence I am posting here in English.

Rules to be followed for Sai Baba Vrat:

1. Any woman, man or child can do this vrat.
2. This vrat can be done by any person without any difference of caste and creed.
3. This is a very miraculous vrat. Desired fruits are obtained by doing it for 9 Thursdays according to the rules.
4. This vrat can be started from any Thursday by taking Sai Baba's name. One should pray to Sai Baba with complete devotion for the fulfillment of the desire for which the Vrat is done.
5. Sai Baba must be worshipped in the morning or in evening. Sai Baba's photograph must be placed on a yellow cloth. Clean the photograph with clear water. Tilak of Chandan (sandalwood) and Kumkum must be applied to the photograph of Sai Baba. Yellow coloured flowers or garland must be offered to Sai Baba, incense sticks and lamp must be lighted and then the main story of the vrat must be read. Sai Baba's name must be remembered and then prasad must be distributed (prasad may consist of a some sweet or fruits).
6. This vrat can be done by eating only fruits ( it may also be done by consuming milk, tea, sweet, etc) or it may also be done by having lunch or dinner. But it must be remembered that the vrat must not be done by not eating anything.
7. If possible one must go to Sai Baba temple and if it is not possible then Sai Baba must be worshipped at home only with complete devotion.
8. This vrat can be continued even if one is out of his/her own town.
9. During this vrat if women are going through menses or if by any reason one Thursday is missed, then that Thursday must not be taken into consideration for 9 Thursdays. Another Thursday must be taken into consideration and then concluding ceremony must be perfomed.


Procedure for concluding ceremony :


1. On 9th Thursday the vrat is concluded. Five poor people must be fed (as per economic condition)

2. To increase the importance of Sai Baba and this vrat 5, 11 and 21 (as per economic condition) Sai Baba Vrat Books must be distributed among family and friends. In this way the vrat is concluded.

3. In the concluding ceremony, by distributing the Sai Baba Vrat Books increase Mahima of Sai Baba and we get His blessings.

4. On the 9th Thursday the books, which are to be given to our family members and friends, must be kept in pooja and then it must be distributed so that others and ours desire are fulfilled.

Sai Baba devotees have a strong belief that anyone who does this vrat according to the above procedure and concludes it in the same manner as stated here, Sai Baba fulfills all their desires.

Sai Baba Vrat Story:


A woman named Kokila lived in a city with her husband Maheshbhai. Both of them had love for each other. But Maheshbhai’s nature was quarrelsome. He did not have sense of speaking. Neighbours were fed of Maheshbhai’s such nature, but Kokila was religious woman.

She had immense faith in God and she suffered everything without uttering a single word. Gradually her husband’s business declined and the earnings were also negligible. Now Maheshbhai did not go anywhere and stayed back at home. Moreover he was drawn to wrong path. Now his quarrelsome nature increased two fold.

It was afternoon time. An old man came and stood in front of the house of Kokila. He had a strange glow on his face. He demanded dal-chaval (lentil-rice). Kokila gave to the old man what he demanded and folded her hands before him. The old man said May Sai bless you with happiness. Kokila said there is no happiness in my fate and narrated everything about her unhappy life to the old man.

The old man explained the Vrat for 9 Thursdays. The vrat can be done by eating fruits or by taking lunch or dinner. If possible go to Sai Temple or otherwise worship Sai Baba at home for 9 Thursdays, observe fast and donate food to the hungry people and distribute 5, 11 and 21 Sai Vrat Books according to your economic condition.

If you increase the importance of this Sai Vrat, Sai Baba will fulfill all your desires. But you must have deep faith in Sai Baba and have patience in your mind. If anybody does this Vrat and duly performs its concluding ceremony, Sai Baba fulfills his/her desires.

Kokila did the Vrat for 9 Thursdays, distributed Sai Vrat books and fed the poor on 9th Thursday. Now all the quarrels in her home had disappeared. There was complete happiness as Maheshbhai’s nature had changed. His business now came back on track. In a short period, their economic condition also improved and everything became fine.

Both husband and wife started living their life happily. One day Kokila’s brother-in-law and his wife came to their home from Surat. Casually talking they told Kokila that their children do not study well. They have failed in exams. Kokila told them about the importance of Sai Baba Vrat for 9 Thursdays and said that by worshipping by Sai Baba their children would be able to study well. But for that you must have deep faith in Sai Baba. Sai Baba helps everybody. She explained the procedure for the vrat which is as follows:

- This vrat can be done by eating fruits or by taking lunch or dinner.
- If possible go to Sai Baba temple for all 9 Thursdays.
- Any woman, man or child can do this vrat. Worship of Sai Baba photograph must be done for 9 Thursday.
- Offer flowers, light incense sticks and lamp, chant Arti and remember Sai Baba’s name and distribute prasad.
- On 9th Thursday feed poor people.
- On 9th Thursday distribute Sai Baba Vrat Books among family members and friends.

After few days Kokila received a letter from her brother-in-law’s wife that her children does Sai Vrat and have started studying hard. She herself did Sai Baba Vrat and distributed the books in her husband’s office. She added that due to Sai Baba Vrat her friend’s daughter’s marriage was fixed in a very nice family. Moreover her neighbour’s ornament box was lost somewhere. As a result of Sai Baba Vrat someone came and returned the box after two months. In this way such miracles happened.

Now Kokila came to know that Sai Baba is really very great.
O Sai Baba please shower Your blessings on us as You have showered on others.

Sairam Rish
When you are in menstrual cycle you do not do the vrat .You start counting your week after getting over with the menstrual cycle. So next vrat after the mensus cycle will be your 3rd vrat and so on till you complete your full vrat . If there are any further doubt you can mail and ask .
jai Sai Ram .

Om Sai Ram, I kept 9 Sai Baba Thursday Vrat with a wish in my mind but my wish did not fulfilled. Shud I do the concluding ceremony of the vrat ???? Or start a fresh again for 9 Thursday vrat. Please help me out.

Manisha.Rautela.Bisht on May 1, 2012 at 1:57 PM said...

Sairam Nee
Yes please conclude the vrat as mentioned in Sai vrat book and if you wish to start again than you can start fresh .Vrat is always driven by desire of a devotee but Baba is not bound by vrat rituals ,Baba knows what is best for the devotees and would accordingly bless him/her what HE thinks will be good for them not what children think is good for them ,
Jai Sai Ram

om sai ram..i hav started sai vrat today can u please tell me why should we use yellow cloth and yellow flowers only any particular reason , and i started pooja after having tea, and later took milk can i hav fruit juices the whole day without having food please suggest

Manisha.Rautela.Bisht on May 10, 2012 at 8:46 AM said...

Sairam
You can have fruits,juice,tea,nuts or even one time full meal . It is all your choice and how your health permits . So do not worry on this aspect.
Regarding yellow colour ,it is auspicious colour in hindu religion and the significant colour of auspiciousness during pooja ,yellow colour is also associated with Guru and Sai Baba is our Guru.Hence yellow colour has its importance. Hope this would help you understand the significance of Yellow colour .
Jai Sai Ram

Manisha.Rautela.Bisht on July 5, 2012 at 12:01 PM said...

Sairam devotee,
As per to the vrat book ,any lady having her menstrual cycle on the day of Vrat should not count the day as day of vrat and should keep her vrat the coming Thursday . Whether you had it in the morning or evening ,leave that day and include another day as your vrat day .I hope I am clear if any doubt please write back .Jai Sai Ram

kya vrat katha morning and evening dono time padhana hai?means morning jese hi evening me karna hai?plz tell me.

Manisha.Rautela.Bisht on September 5, 2012 at 3:06 PM said...

Sairam Anonymous devotee,
The vrat is to be done only once not two time. As per to your ease you can do it .Baba never went by rituals or strict rules. He encouraged true feeling and sincere devotion . So you can do anytime .Do not do two time.

As per to another devotee's query,you can eat food with onion and garlic.As written above Baba never gave importance to any rituals or procedure. He only looked for devotee's sincere devotion or love.
Jai Sai Ram

Hi,

I have completed 9th thursday vrath today. Temple is very far for me in California. Is it okay if I email the 9thursdays vrath book through email to 5 people? Also in US there are no poor people to feed, so should I save that money and feed the poor people when I come to India next time?

Please advise.

Regds

Sairam Lakshmi,
You can do what your heart guides you to do . You can e-mail to your Sai friends,save money and feed the poor or you can donate the money to some organisation in US who are taking care of poor and needy . There is no hard and fast rule .If you have any more doubt you can write here .

I have begun the 9 thursday vrat today. I began the vrat on an empty stomach,after completion of prayers I had fruit and tea. Is that ok or should I eat and then do the puja?
Also I need to know exactly what to do,
I read the 108 names,then I read the stories I also read the aarati.
After that what am I supposed to do?
After puja I am supposed to give the fruits and sweets to people in my home?
If they eat the prasad,do they have to eat vegetarian that day?
