« on: February 13, 2010, 10:27:47 PM »
jai saimaster! my household relations are very  bad.my father and my brother always quarrel with each other and my mother is getting depressed due to them.iam a strong devotee of masterji and feeling very sorry about these  persons.iam continuously praying to masterji and doing parayanas.i told my mother too to do parayana but she never listened to me.recently she also started reading gurucharitra by ammagaru's grace.the three members prefer to watch television most of the time and my brother always quarrels with my father and mother.iam very much tensed about their future.they won't listen to me in anyway to do parayana etc.. iam enjoying the love and blessings showered by masterji and ammagaru and want my family members also come under the cool shadow of mastergaru's love.what shall i do?

Jai Sai Master, Babu garu..
Jai Sai Master, Sai Bandhus..

Dearest Sai Bandhus Sushma garu,

I am sorry to know about your tensions in the house. What you are doing is fine Sushma garu. You are doing all you can. The only thing is, rest assured, Master garu will take care of your family also.

It is really hard to convince some people about parayana Sushma garu. But once they start it atleast with the intent of interest, rather than bhakti, then we have done half our work.

So, the way I see it, you can keep talking to your family members. Here are some things that comes up to my mind.

Master garu, always always talked about Sri Sai Baba. Anybody who came and talked to Him about any materialistic things, Master garu always turned it towards Sri Sai. He said, this way, there is an advantage.

Either that person will also start talking about Sai and then get into Sai tatwam and become a Sai devotee.

OR

that person will think "what is this?? I keep talking about worldly matters and He always talks about Sai...I should not go to Him from now onwards".

So, Master continues, saying that, if he becomes Sai devotee then good, if not, then Master says even better, atleast HE can take care of other Sai Devotees instead of this one who will never return.

Sushma garu, this is all given in the book Sri Sai Master Pravachanamulu. I have given a loose translation in English and I apologize to other Sai Bandhus if my loose translation looks crude

So, Sushma garu as you can see, it is pretty tough for us ordinary people, to convince somebody about Parayana, Satsangam etc. But we should not be despaired. We should keep on trying.

Why dont you start reading Mahatmula Muddu Biddadu, atleast those chapters where Master's daily routine is mentioned. I am asking this because, Master's daily routine consists of how HE invariably talked about only Sai. We can definitely learn from Him. Isn't it??

Also, try reading Sai Master Pravachanamulu. It has also got great deal of information about how to talk to other people about Sri Sai Baba.

I can only suggest you to persist, that's all Sushma garu. Keep talking to your brother. Introduce new topics with mother, father, and brother. When you talk to brother, keep referring Master's books. When your brother talks about fighting, you turn it into an opportunity to explain to him patiently about Master's words about respecting parents,no matter what they tell us. When you talk to you mother, you can refer other things from other books like Dhyana Yoga Sarwaswam.

If you can successfully try to turn any of your discussions with your family members towards Sai, even arguments and fightings (mentioning to them about how Master and Sai taught us) then slowly things will definitely improve. Apart from that, the only other weapon that I know of is parayana.

Babu garu has taught us that we should never do parayana for others, when they themselves are not doing it. But in your case, you are also involved in the family troubles (looking at them, feeling bad, feeling helpless etc). So, I am feeling that you can do the parayana. Babu garu, please forgive me if I gave an incorrect advice and guide us correctly.

Finally, FINALLY, you can visit Nagole (hyderabad) and take the darshan of Amma garu and Babu garu and if you are visiting Chikkadpally (hyderabad) then take the darshan of Swamyji. You will feel lot better.

Good luck.
With best regards,
Jai Sai Master!
Jai Sai Master!
Jai Swamy Sai!
