shirdi sai madyana harathi
shirdi sai madyana harathi

Saibaba’s origin is unknown to anyone and not disclosed by Lord in his life time about where he born not there he grew up. He was first time seen at the age of 16 years for the first time in shirdi. Though there is no agreement among biographers about the date of the event, it is generally accepted, and their approximate birth year 1836.

Harathis are performed four times a day at shirdi, is the devotional prayer that has devotees standing before the deity singing in a union. Shri Sai baba aarti is sung in Marathi as a living manifestation of the abstract concept of God. Here is the Madhyana aarti performed at 12-00 noon everyday. Here is the Marathi lyrics with English meanings….

 

Ghewuniya panchaarati, karoo Babansi aarati

Karoo Sai see aarati Karoo Babansi arati.

Utta utta ho bandhawa. Owaaloo ha Ramadhava.

Sayee Ramadhava. Owaloo ha Ramadhava.

Karooniya sthira man, pahu gambhirira he dhyan

Sayeeche he dhyan pahu gambhirira he dhyan

Krishnanatha Datt Sai jado chitta tujze paayee

Chitta Baba paayee Jado chitta tuzhe paayee

Holding the five-wick lamp, I do Baba’s Aarti. Sai’s Aarti. I do Baba’s Aarti.

Rise! Rise! Oh my brethren. Let us do Aarti for Ramadhava (Consort of Ram the incarnation of
Lord Vishnu). Sai Ramadhava. I do Arati for Ramadhava.

Concentrating the mind, let us have a glimpse of the meditative figure, Sai’s meditative figure. Let us have a glimpse of the meditative figure.

Krishna-Natha says oh, Datta (for Lord Dattatreya) Sai! Enjoin our minds to your feet. Lord, to your feet draw our minds. Enjoin our minds to your feet.

Hail Lord! Datta Avadhuta! (a divine Incarnation) O Sai Avadhuta! With my folded hands, I place my head at your feet. Hail Lord! Hail Lord!

You take Avatar (Incarnation) when Dharma (purity and righteousness) declines; Even the non-believers devolopfaith in you. Showing many types of Leelas (Graces) in your innumerable forms; you remove the miseries of your devotees, day and night. Hail Lord…

You gave Darshan (divine vision) to someone in the guice of Moslem. By removing all doubts, you set him on the path leading towards the unity with the Self. Even Raja Gopichanda and the river Mandakini (Ganges) were purified by you. Born of a Moslem family of weavers you had brought salvation to all the people. Hail Lord Sai…

You do not distinguish between Hindus and Moslems. In the present human form taken by you, you give the same look of love both to the Hindus and Moslems and establish the universality of your love. Hail Lord Sai…

O the Lord Sainatha, I would always like to be at your feet, Liberate the mankind stepped in worldly illusions and remove their difficulties by your grace. If you desire to give me anything, then give Krishna (composer of this portion of Aarti) the ability to sing your prayers. Hail Lord…

Shirdi is my Pandharpur. Sai Baba is the husband of Rama i.e. Lord Vishnu. Baba is the presiding deity there. Sai…

Pure devotion is like river Chandrabhaga (River at Pandharpur). Our devotional feelings for Pundalik (Lord Vishnu called Vithal) has awakened.

Come along, all the people. Pray Baba and pray Sai.

Ganu (Das ganu, the composer of this aarti) requests : Sai Baba to run and give us blessings, My Mother give your blessings.

Shri Gurudeva Datta.

Prostrating myself with touch of your feet and see thy beautiful form. Embracing you with love, I worship you, and do your aarti with devotion.

You are my mother, my father, my brother, you are my friend. You are knowledge, You are the embodiment of love and tenderness. You are my everything, O! Lord.

My body, my speech, my mind and all my senses, my intellect, my innate being – all these I offer to you, Narayana.

I pray Achyut, Keshav, Ramnarayan, Krishnadamodar, Vasudev, Hari, Shridhar, Madhav, Gopika-Vallabh, Janaki-Nayakam, Ramachandra. (various names of Vishnu and His incarnations).

Shri Naarayana Vaasudevaaya Sri saccidananda Sadguru Saiñatha Maharaja ki Jaya

Hari Aum.(Invocation of Primordial sound) in the beginning the devas (Celestial beings) worshipped Lord Vishnu by means of a sacrificial fire(yagyan) by such religious deeds they attain greatness in heaven (the abode of the divine, Celestial beings).

“Aum! Salutation to Vaishravan(Celestial being in heaven incharge of wealth). He is the King of Kings, who is help. May he thy grant me my desires as Vaishravan, the lord of all my desires.

Aum! Let there be well being! Let he attain universal sovereignty eternelly, enjoyment (of pleasures), independence, perfect detachment, distinction and position of a great king, and supreme Lordship, so that he rules the universe and become the paramount ruler of the whole earth all his life, possessed of longevity and fullness of life, and be the absolute king of the earth streching upto its oceanic shores.

It is a prayer for Marutt, the son of Avikshit excelling in the four qualities of knowledge, righteousness, detachment and longivity – whose abode all Celestial deities visit.

O! Shri Narayan Vasudev Sachchidananad! Sadguru Sainath Maharaj!

 Anantaa tulaa ten kase re sthavaave, Anantaa tulaa ten kase re namaave

Anantaa mukhaanchaa shine shesh gaataan, Namaskaar saashtaang Shri Sainaatha.

Dharave karee saana alpagna baala, Karaave amhaa dhanya chumboni gaalaa

Mukhee gala preme karaa graas aataan, Namaskaar saashtaang Shri Sainaatha.

Bhavee mohaneeraaja haa taari aataan, Namaskaar saashtaang Shri Sainaatha.

Even the thousand tounged Shesha(a Hindu mythological snake on whom Lord Vishnu rests) finds it inadequate to sing thy prayers of greatness. Salutations with prostrations, O! Sainath.

Those who remeber your feet everyday with pure devotion and thought, cross over this illussionary world. O! father, Salutations with prostrations, O! Sainath.

Appearing like as an ordinary person to the ignorant, he carries on His divine action(Leelas). He is the giver of inner spiritual knowledge and unity with God – Salutations with prostrations, your O! Sainath.

It is a great luck to be born as a human being. Human beings alone can do Sadhna(practices for obtaining purity and liberation). Hold on to the Love of Sai and kill ego. Salutations with prostrations, O! Sainath.

Hold the hands of ignorant children like us. Bless us with a Kiss on our cheeks, give us love. Salutations with prostrations, O! Sainath.

Gods and others worship your feet. Say Suka and others treat you as equal. The prayag(confluence of rivers) and holy places bow at your feet – Salutations with prostrations, O! Sainath.

The Gopis are always delighted to see your feet. They always dance with Krishna-natha having immersed their thoughts in Him. Salutations with prostrations, Shri Sainatha.

I request you to grant me just one boon. I humbly fold my hands, and with deep faith, Mohaniraj (says, the composer of this part of Aarti) asks you: save me from this world of bewitching desires and ferry me across the ocean of existence. Salutations with prostrations, Shri Sainatha.

Let us bow down to the God Sadguru Sainath, who is Truth Incarnate and is always in Consciousness and Bliss; the God who is the cause of creation, existence and destruction of the world; and, who has come in to this world in a human form for the sake of his own devotees.

Let us bow down to the God Sadguru Sainath, who is the bright sun whose light destroys the darkness of worldly desires; who is beyond the realm of speech and mind, but accessible to the sages who are engrossed in Thy meditation – One who pervades the whole world, pure and devoid of all attributes.

Let us bow down to the God Sadguru Sainath, who has manifested in this kaliyug (The dark and the troublesome age of present) for the salvation of those who believe in devotion to Him and those who have taken refuge at his feet as they are drowning and tormented by the ocean of worldliness.

Let us bow down to the God Sadguru Sainath who, By His constant abode under the margosa tree, whose juice though by nature is bitter and distasteful, has turned it nectar-like sweet, because He has exalted the tree above the legendary Kalpavriksh (the wish-fulfilling tree)

Let us bow down to the God Sadguru Sainath, whom people go to worship and render devotional services, knowing Him to be Himself the kalpavriksh always; for those people he satisfies their worldly desires and grants them salvation

Let us bow down to the God Sadguru Sainath, whose innumerable and wonderful Leelas(divine play), unheard of and unimagined, have displayed His divine splenderous glory; yet who is devoid of ego and is happily absorbed in the Self.

Let us bow down to the God Sadguru Sainath, who is the perennial abode of rest, repose and refuge for the virtuous people and to whom praises are directed by good and pious persons- He who is the bestower of happiness and welfare to His devotees.

Let us bow down to the God Sadguru Sainath, who is the Self-manifested, the Absolute Brahman, verily the Supreme Creator Incarnate, the Being without beginning or end, who has descended on this earth in the Ram avatar (Incarnation). O lord, I have been sanctified by your darshan.

O Lord Sai, treasure-house of mercy, the bestower of all wealth, success and inspiration, even the creator is unable to describe the incomparable power of the dust of your feet. With my folded hands and true devotion, I surrender to you O Lord. There is no refuge for me, except the lotus feet of Shrimat Sainath, the Lord.

Lord Sai is the avatar of Raghav (Incarnation of Ram), the Lord who fulfils the desires of His devotees for the purification of their infatuated and deluded hearts and minds – to whom I pray, day and night, untiringly and blissfully.

Lord Sainath, the canopy of your mercy is like the intense lusture of the autumn moon. Grant the cool shade (from that canopy) from the blazing heat of the three-fold calamities of life to those who have taken shelter at your feet.

Lord Sainath you are my God, whom I worship. I extol your praises. Let my mind dwell lovingly at your lotus feet, just as the bee hovers over the lotus flowers enticed by the desire of honey.

Lord Sai, Guru Ocean of compassion, bless me and pardon me for all my innumerable faults. May my boundless sins which have accumulated over several cycles of life be destroyed by the darshan of your feet

Those whose minds become purified by the nectar of tirth (Water deemed to be Holy from the washings of Lord’s feet) of Shri Sainath, those who are constantly absorbed in His service with – devotion they get freed from the distress caused by worldliness and attain salvation.

Whosoever always recites this hymn with devotion and absorption will certainly be the recipient of the grace of Sadguru until he lives.

For the sins done by the hands and the feet, by the toungue and the body, or by the ears and the eyes, or those done in thought, or any other follies, known or unknown – for all these, forgive me.

Let us Hail ! Hail! O compassionate one, Shri Prabhu Sainath!

Let us Hail! Shri Sachchidananda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj!

Aum! King of Kings! King of Yogis! Absolute Brahman! Sainath Maharaj!

Let us Hail! Shri Sachchidananda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj!

|| Shri Satchitaanand Sadguru Sainaath Maharaaj ki
