Way of Living as described in Sai Satcharitra

Chapter III
One should turn all his attention to Me and avoid the company of atheists, irregular and wicked people. He will get eternal happiness if he is humble & modest towards all and worships Me with heart and soul. (Page 13)

Chapter IX
The dog which you saw before meals and to which you gave pieces of bread is one with Me, so also other creatures are My beloved. So abandon the sense of duality and distinction and serve Me. (Page 56)

Chapter X
Do not emulate others. Always consider your interest and welfare. The Lord will protect you. Yoga, sacrifices, penance and knowledge are the means to attain God. (Page 59 )

Chapter XV
If you spread your palms with devotion before Me, I am immediately with you, day and night. Though I am here physically, still I know what you do beyond the seven seas. Go wherever you wish over the wide world. (Page 85)

Chapter XVIII & XIX
Do not discourteously drive away people who come to you but treat them with respect. God is pleased if you are generous. Do not bark at people who come for help. If anybody speaks ill of you, do not resent by giving any bitter reply but tolerate them. If you tolerate such things, you will be happy. God is the sole proprietor. (Page 100 & 101)

Chapter XXII
God lives in all beings and creatures. He is the great wire-puller of the world and all beings, serpents and scorpions, obey His commands. The world is all dependent on Him and no one is independent. So we should take pity and love all creatures, leave off killings and be patient. The Lord (God) is the protector of all. (Page 119)

You must bear the fruit - good or bad - of your past actions; if it is incomplete, suicide will not help you. You have to take another birth and suffer again; so instead of killing yourself, why not suffer for some time and finish up the fruit of you past and be done with it once and for all. (Page 139)

While I am here to give you temporal and spiritual welfare, why should one pray for death? The result of past actions has to be suffered and got over. Our “karma” is the cause of our happiness and sorrow. Put up with it, whatever comes to you. Allah (God) is the sole dispenser and protector. Think of Him always. He will take care of you. Surrender to Him with body, mind and speech and then see what He does. (Page 183)

The appeasement of the dog’s hunger is the same as Mine. The dog has a soul. The creatures may be different but the hunger of all is the same, though some speak and others are dumb. Know for certain that he who feeds the hungry really serves Me with food. Regard this as Truth. (Page 223)

What (whether good or bad) is our’s is with us. What is other’s is with them. (Page 234)

Way of Living as described in Sai Satcharitra.

Reading of Sai Satcharitra has helped me a lot. Sai Baba proves, whatever written is correct. We should have dedication to Sai Baba.

He also says if you have a Guru, you should be dedicated to Guru.

The book shows, how can we live good life & prosper.

One must read the book.
