Quote of the Month
The Moral Law is inexorable, so follow it, observe it, and you will reach your goal: God is the perfection of the Moral Law.
July 2018 Vol 10 / Issue 7

Dear Sai Bandhus,

“Niraadhaar Ko Aadhaar Ek Raam Naam…” [The only refuge to weak, and demoralized is chanting the Lord’s name alone]. Taking HIS Name with full devotion and faith in the same is the simplest saadhana that will redeem us from this bhavasamsaara. This name alone will burn down the dualities in our life, this name alone is the bestower of all happiness and bliss ultimate.

Hence let us all, brush asides all the kutharkaas in our mind and fix ourselves in the constant remembrance of his divine name.

--Om Sri Sainaathaya Namah  --

Sri Sai Sahasranama Bhashya

202) OM SRI SAI EKAAKINE NAMAH

[Meaning: - Salutations to Lord Sainath who is the One and the Absolute]

Shwetashvetaropanishat eulogizes the Supreme One as “Eko Devah Sarvabhooteshu Goodah….” [The Supreme One is one and the Absolute]. He is “Ekamevaadwiteeya” i.e.  The only one with none equals or second to HIM. He alone existed even before the appearance of this cosmos (Sargasya poorvopasthitah), is permeating every miniscule of this creation (Srusthi anurenu vaasi) and will continue to exist even after the dissolution of this creation (Pratisargasya paryaaptopasthitah). Despite of permeating every atom of this srusthi, yet he remains un-alloyed by the same (Aliptah).

The author of the Sai Sahasram has very beautifully and aptly praised Lord Sai Samartha with this naama. When we read Sai satcharitra with rapt attention, we realize the essence of this naamavali.

Salutations to Lord Sai who is that “Non Dual Absolute One” .

 

----Jai Sree Sadguru Sai Samartha----
