Number 9 has always been very important to Baba, there are 9 planets, 9 Nav Grahas, 9 types of devotion (Nav Vidha Bhakti) & Baba gave 9 coins to Sai Bhakta Lakshmi Ma.
Today, on the special occasion of Krishna Janmashtami sharing 9 beautiful ways to be with BABA, seek his grace, & divine blessings to purify our heart, mind and soul.
1. Write or chant Sai Baba powerful name SAI SAI SAI SAI for 11,664 times in 7 days, i.e. chanting one Mala of 108 beads for 108 times.
2. Write the Holy Shri Sai Satcharita chapter by chapter, word by word in any notebook with full concentration and feeling of surrender to Baba.
3. Complete One day parayan of Magical book Shri Sai Satcharita i.e. read the full Sai Satcharita, all chapters in 24 hours in your home temple or BABA Home SHIRDI.
4. Do 9 Parayans of revered book Shri Sai Satcharita for 9 consecutive weeks.
5. Do a weekly Parayan of Shri Sai Satcharita to express only gratitude for Baba, that selfless reading itself will take away leaps of our bad karma from endless previous lives.
6. Read chapter 11 & 15 from the book Shri Sai Satcharita daily.
7. Attend or do all 4 Artis of Baba for 9 Days or 9 weeks or 9 months.
8. Do Sai 9 Thursday’s (Nav Guruvar) Vrat Pooja for 9 weeks.
9. Take 9 or 108 pradikshnas (circumambulations) of Baba’s idol in a Sai Temple or around Gurusthan and Neem tree in the sacred soil of Shirdi.
With intense study and arduous efforts, when the physical frame is worn down to a skeleton and the blood has turned into the consistency of water, then the Guru’s grace dawns on you.
Happy Krishna Janamashtami to all !!
