Today in this most material of ages in which we live, material “things” - money, resources, and anything of material value - act as “karmic currency”. This is through the blessings of the divine father, the lineage, or parampara, embodied most recently in the form of Shirdi Baba. Datta Kriya means literally ‘the mechanisms of the actions of the divine father’. Sri Kaleshwar taught deeply the power of implementing Datta Kriya in our relationship with the divine father, Shirdi Sai Baba and God.

Saburi means patience, wait. Shraddha means practice. It is in your hands to do. That is the real purpose of human life. It is why we came to this planet. With the right practices, it is not a big deal to reach that stage. Open your heart and do it.

It is important to ask for what we need with wisdom, and have faith and patience that Baba will take care in the best way but sometimes we really need or want something. It’s very important to our lives and our happiness. We can go to Baba and ask for it and make a deal with him and tell him what you will offer to him. You need to give something back to him.

Somehow I knew it wasn’t by chance, and of course now I know that Baba was starting to make me more aware of his presence in my life. This is also a great testament of how Baba needs no one to promote him. He just appears to whomever he wants, leaves an impression, and then uses that person to later pull in someone else. He’s so infinitely creative!

I initially started reading the Shri Sai Satcharita by Dabholkar in 2007, after learning how it could contribute to developing a personal relationship with Shirdi Sai Baba.  When I first heard of Baba through Swami Kaleshwar, I had no idea who he was and never imagined that I could feel as close to him as I do now. So I began reading with the intention of discovering who Baba was. I first read the entire book from beginning to end. Then daily, I would randomly open it up and start reading the full chapter of wherever my finger landed, thus receiving whatever message was meant for me that day. Over the past 4 or 5 years, I simply read a chapter a day starting from the beginning of the book and once I finish the whole book, I begin again and the cycle continues.

The stories of Sai Baba teach me that our live are a divine sacred experience even if our individual consciousness is not aware of that fact. The profound significance of this is to begin to grasp that every experience in my life is a sacred experience washing me. My mind creates illusory classifications of desirable and undesirable experiences, unable to comprehend the total reality of sacred energy, but my soul knows the truth. While my initial miracle experience was a divine sacred experience, so too was the devastating physical illness that followed it; so too was the painful collapse of security structures in my life; so too the conflicts and unmet expectations – each experience I have is there under the guidance of divine consciousness to help the process of self-healing and awakening.

During the 15 years of living and studying with Sri Kaleshwar in Penukonda, India, I was blessed to have had many conversations while working on the ancient knowledge, editing and writing books with him. Some of this material is already found in books in its edited form. Reading the original dialog gives an experience of what it was like to sit with him. Sri Kaleshwar, who we called Swami or Guruji, was a great joy to be with, he was informal, unpretentious, funny, a captivating storyteller and a wellspring of divine wisdom. His energy was totally infectious. 

This conversation with Swami, Philip Lipetz and I, took place on March 12, 1999, late evening, 11 pm, sitting by his dhuni. Swami was 26 years old.

So, I’m walking through mud, carrying these padukas and in a hurry and occupied - there are a lot of clues here about the way the Father’s energy comes.  It chooses certain moments that you’re already distracted, you’re distracting yourself.  So I was distracted in my hurry.  So I’m walking and enjoying the mud between my toes and trying to make my way as quickly as I can to the hotel. I look up and I’m in the area where there are farm fields and these old style mud huts, I mean the way I would imagine Shirdi looked when Baba was there. And then suddenly there was Baba about a hundred yards ahead of me in the direction I was walking, begging from one of the houses!

The Shirdi Sai Baba stotram is a heartful prayer, which is connected to no specific religion. In Shirdi Sai Baba’s lifetime, he created a bridge connecting all religions, showing that we all are one, and that the true religion is the practice of love, forgiveness, faith and patience. This stotram, sung for almost a hundred years, consists of 108 ‘glorious’ names of Shirdi Sai Baba, reflecting his extraordinary life and deeds.

What would each of us not give to be able to be in the presence of Baba and to speak to him? To have him speak to us? When one enters into this book deeply, that is exactly what is happening. You are with Baba. This book is alive. His consciousness is in the words. And when you approach the book with stillness you’re not approaching the book through mental activity, rather you’re letting your entire body energetically absorb the life force of his words and the life force of consciousness. During these periods of sustained immersion with the energy of the book, I really real­ized that to open your heart and to be with this book is literally to be having your head at Baba’s feet. That you are literally, immediately in his presence, within his consciousness and allowing his consciousness to flood in, in place of your own egoic consciousness and that is a state of pure bliss. Listen here to sharing of full talk.

Every person should know this truth – studentism is like slavery.  Studentism is feeling your master is God.  Don’t do that.  It’s a big crime.  Love a master as a friend, and as a brother.  Give your thanks to him.  If you have the bhakti way then you can touch his feet. In India, thousands of years back they found some supernatural things.  It’s being kept a secret.  The masters don’t release it to the public.  Or, even if they release it, they do not give perfect guidelines to implement it.  Students have nobody showing them how to drive the car.  What good is a car, no matter how beautiful it is, if you cannot drive it?  I know car driving.  I give the car keys to you.  I show you how to drive.  When you have a car and know how to drive you are a new person. Instead of driving their own car, so many people say, “Jesus is great, Shirdi Baba is great, Mother Divine is great.”  So what!  Ok, they are great.  So what!  When will you become great like that?  Do you want to be a slave forever and ever?  Why are they so great?  Why are you not that great? If you want to see the real thing – focus.  The person who is making you focus is not God.  He’s a friend who came in your life bringing light to push you.  On one level he’s a God to you, but the real God is what he experienced, what you are experiencing.
