Santh Jnaneshwar : The trip to Pandharpura - The begining of the tradition of the Varkaris

Om Sai Ram! There is nothing in this world, nay this universe, that can bring happiness and bliss upon one, as the contemplation and singing the glories of the Sadguru. Sadguru is our mother, father, our relative, our everything. Sadguru is verily Parabrahma. I seek to sing his glory and however incapable I might feel I am, I cling myself to the lotus feet of my Sadguru, and I know he will bestow his merciful glance towards me. It is he only who makes me write. All credits be to the sadguru and any faults are mine.

Sai may my head ever rest in the dust of your lotus feet!

Sai, you are the fount of infinite bliss
Thy grace, how immeasurable it is
The rishis and munis have longed for your vision
Blessed is he, on whom you have bestowed devotion

Thou art Brahma Vishnu and Maheshwara
You are one with Dattatreaya Digambara
Thou art the beloved son of Sage Atri and Mother Anasuya
You are the veritable Panduranga and Saguna Parabrahma Dattatreya

Thy mercy is infinite and boundless
Thy grace helps the helpless
You fill their Zoli with happiness
And lead them on the path to blessedness

King of Kings, You appeared as a Fakir in guise
Marvelous are thy ways, hard to discern even for the wise
Ceaselessly Whirling You perform the grand cosmic dance
And put one who listen to your nectar like stories in a trance.

Shree Satchitananda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj ki Jai!

Shree Gurudeva Datta! Sadguru Datta!

Bow to Shree Sai! Peace be to all!
