Combined Reading - Sri Sai Master Pravachanalu JULY 2009
« on: July 04, 2009, 11:34:26 PM »
Jai Sai Master !

Dear Sai bandhus

We are planning to start a combined reading of Sri Sai Master Pravachanalu.

http://www.divyajanani.org/saibharadwaja/books/saimasterPravachanamulu/Pravachanamulu_Introduction.html

This is the procedure for combined reading.

Each one us reads one chapter a week. Since we are starting in the middle of the week, the duration for the first chapter will be July 7th - July 11th. Any time during the week, people can discuss what the chapter conveys, their doubts etc etc.

For the first few chapters, we already have a synopsis as given by Babugaru during previous combined reading of this book.

http://www.saimasterforums.org/index.php?topic=29.0

However, its better to re-read the chapters and then check our own understanding with what Babugaru says regarding that chapter. This will give us a better insight into how one should read and analyse Mastergaru's writings.

Please remember that most of the times, members lose interest or get tied in other works. Its paramount for us to remember that such a reading not only improves our understanding of the book, but it should also helps us in different aspects of spirituality - like bhakti, gnana etc. A proper use of this combined reading is both "Swadhyaya" as well as "Pravachanabhyam". So I urge the members to devote the next 26 weeks for a proper combined reading of this book.

I sincerely hope that all of us discuss this book whole heartedly so that Babugaru helps us further our understanding. I also hope for Mastergaru and Ammagaru's blessings that we go for the spirit and not just the letter - and transform our lives even by the small fraction.

All those who would like to take part, please reply on this thread itself.

This is what Babugaru said, regarding combined reading in previous posts

"The purpose of this forum is to create an "Online Satsangam". How can it become a satsangam without a combined reading? "

Jai Sai Master !

Jai Sai Master.

We will join the Combined Reading.

We still remember how Babu gari words of explanation made a complete difference to the way we used to do Paarayana.

When we wanted to know about the true meaning of Dharma, we reached ' Sri Sai Leelamrutam '. It was always tough to practice the Teachings. Then we were guided to 'Sai Master Pravachanamulu' for the first time by Sri Chaitanya Swamiji. Still our thoughts, our practice lacked the clarity. Then we were guided to 'Online Satsang' here. There was more of enthusiasm rather than learning in the initial years from sharing what we know and from watching others thoughts. It was still incomplete. Then we have been given with an opportunity to learn from Babu gari explanation for the same wonderful Teachings mentioned in Master gari Paarayana Books. It is making a difference when we do Paarayana and when we share with all Sai Bandhus here. The Paarayana which was done so mechanically has become lively and every word Teaches us and now we are able to perceive, we are able to understand. There is a beautiful side of Paarayana when we start understanding the true meaning.

We bow to Baba ( Sri Sai Leelamrutam ). We bow to Sri Master garu, Amma garu. We bow to Sri Chaitanya Swamiji. We bow to Sri Babu garu.

May the sacred Teachings reach us all from Combined Reading. Our heartfelt Thanks to this Online Satsang for giving us another opportunity to learn.

Jai Sai Master.
Jai Sai Master.

Jai Sai Master!

Thanks Asterias garu.Thanks SaiUttamPallavi garu for sharing your thoughts.
I want to join too.Unless there is an external trigger like this, I will not be able to read
other books of Master garu as always will be doing paarayana of Sai Leelamrutam and Guru Charitra.

Jai Sai Master!
గురుబోధయొక్క సారం గ్రహించి దాని ప్రకారం మన యోచనను, పనులను సంస్కరించుకొన్నపుడే మనం నిజంగా గురువును ఆశ్రయించినట్లు. అలాగాకుంటే అది మిథ్యాభక్తే.
Whatever we practice,becomes the swabhAvA.If control is practiced persistently that will become the swabhAvA.

jai sai master ,  Babu garu kindly make me understand wher I am confused with the below sentense.

"kshanakalamaina ellapudu manasulo nanne chintana chestu undandi.gurtu pettukondi.
mee kshema samacharalanni nenu kanipedutuntanu"

how can anybody do this at all in one slife?

for example I am studying a book  or teaching my child something or talking to somebody  I feel its impossible to keep BABA in

my manasu every kshanam". If try to do I will lose concentration on the first thing.
If I am sweeping my house may be i can do it because it doesnt need much attention.

But If I am working in office or sleeping or  any such thing then How can I do it?

I think  only sanyasi people who has no connection with the outside world  can only do it.

kindly make me clear                  jai sai master

Thankyou very much asterias garu. I'm totally agreeing with you. This is not just mere reading...but we should pay much attention that our master is observing us. That awareness is needed. Today onwards i would like to join in this combined reading.

I pray master to be with us, and shower his blessings as always.

Jai Sai Master!

I would like to participate in this Combined Reading. I don't know if I can participate in this all the way until January, because of my school and other activities. But i will try to follow along as best as i Can. I have some questions about God, Guru, Sadguru, dakshina etc that I would like to discuss, and so instead of starting a new thread, i could discuss in this thread. Hope you don't mind......

I am IN.
