By Mr. Justice M. B. Rege, B.A., LB

High Court Judge, Indore.

An attempt to write a foreword to Baba's Charters and Sayings may well be described as an effort to discover the Sun with a lighted taper. None is more conscious of this than myself but my revered brother B.V. Narasimha Swami whose privilege it has been to compile the "Charters and Sayings" would not brook my denial of the honour of writing this foreword. With Baba's divine grace, the lighted taper may perhaps dimly light the way out of the depth of theSamsaric Cavern to the Radiant Sun outside; and if it does so, it will be an addition to the Charters.

Self-realisation is the aim of Mysticism; but the means to the end must be suited to the needs of the individual. Baba in the flesh was, to his devotees, the embodiment of the Supreme Spirit lighting the Sadhakas'path by his every word and action. The mortal body has passed away but the "Baba" once in it now lives in the Spirit Eternal helping in the silent way he often did in the flesh the myriads of his devotees who seek solace in him. A Sadhaka however must need have something manifest and perceptible to the senses on which to pin his faith; and the 'Charters and Sayings' compiled by Swamiji will serve as a manifestation of that Supreme Spirit in words. As Lord Sree Krishna manifests Himself in the Bhagavad Gita, so does Baba in the 'Charters and Sayings'.

The compilation will doubtless be a beacon on the Sadhakas' path; but it would likewise transport persons like my humble self, who had the privilege of being at Baba's feet when He was in the body, back into the old times, and revive fond memories of the blissful moments spent with the Master.

The 'Charters and Sayings' are useful as precepts both in the world spiritual and the world material. Pervading them is the love of an ardent devotee who pictures Baba as the Body, the Jeeva and the Shiva. At one stage says Baba "I am your servant's servant"; next "I am a servant of Allah"; and yet again "I am He." Intellect fails here; but the spirit beyond the intellect and mind is manifest, In the body Baba was the insignificant human being; between it and the supreme Shiva, he was as "Jeeva" a wheel in the great machine; but transcending these He stood as Shiva Himself.

The onward march of Science may some day co-ordinate these phases in the frame of the Intelect. The miracles referred to in the book may cause a sceptic to stare. To the devotees in tune with the Infinite Baba they are only events in thfe process of evolution-mysterious to the mere man-but explicable in the light of Faith and Love.

One cannot be too greatful to Swamiji for the labour of love which has crystallised this phase of Baba's divine personality in the 'Charters and Sayings'. All I would say is All glory to the Master and to his "Vyasa" the Swamiji; and may the book serve to create and foster Faith and Devotion in all corners of the country!

Lord Sal

Ah Blessed Lord, Oh High Deliverer!

Forgive this feeble script, which doth Thee wrong.

Measuring with little wit Thy lofty love.

I take my refuge in Thy name and Thee.

Edwin Arnold

Thou seemest human and divine,

The highest, holiest manhood, Thou.



(Apantaratma) These men do never die; They become the Praised Ones, They shed mercy on the world with myriad hands. They help the helpless. They aid the depressed.

They leave not those that follow them when the time of

danger comes. They are men, only in name. In reality, they are God Himself, These solitary ones are marvellous.

Bedil, the Sufi of Sina


Faith is the sun of life

And her countenance shines (like the Hebrew's)

For she has looked upon God,
Sri Sai Babas Charters and Sayings

(Babas Promises)

(As Dwaraka Mayi)

1. This is Dwaraka Mayi of ours on which you are setting. This wards off all dangers and anxieties from her children. Highly merciful is this Masudi Ayi. She is the mother of those who place their entire faith in her. If they are in danger, she will save them. Once a person climbs into her lap, all this troubles are over. He who sleeps in her shade attains bliss.

2. What can the snake do to Dwarakamayi’s children ? They look on amused, when the snake appears.

When Dwaraka Mayi protects, can the snake bite.

3. We have no need to fear. Strike, le me see how you can strike and kill (ef,36,473)

4. This is not a mosque. It is Dwaraka. Those who seek refuge in her will never be harmed.
