Shri Sai Baba`s assurance-Once said to Shyama (Madhav) one of His devotees
“If a man utters My name with love, I shall fulfill all his wishes, will increase his devotion. And if he sings earnestly My life and My deeds, I shall be set in front and back and on all sides. Specifically, those devotees, who are attached to Me, heart and soul, will naturally feel happiness, when they hear these stories. Believe Me that, if anybody sings My leelas, I will give him infinite joy and everlasting contentment. It is My special characteristic to free any person, who surrenders completely to Me, and who worships Me faithfully, and who remembers Me and meditates on Me constantly. How can they be conscious of worldly objects and sensations, who utter My name, who worship Me, who think of My stories and My life, and who thus, always remember Me! I shall draw out My devotees from the jaws of death. One will get rid off of all diseases after hearing my stories. So, hear My stories with respect, and think and meditate on them, assimilate them. This is the way of happiness and contentment. The pride and egoism of My devotees will vanish, the mind of the hearers will be set at rest; and if he is wholehearted and complete with faith, he will be one with Supreme Consciousness. The simple remembrance of My name as ” Sai, Sai” will do away with sins of speech and hearing”.
