1) Poojan to be Performed on the Day of Padwa

Shraddhavans should get up early in the morning and in the wee hours should perform the below described ritual.

* We should clean our house with broom and collect the waste on a cardboard.

* After this we should enlighten a light made from dough in which we should use ghee as fuel.

*We should then place a sweet (foodstuff) on the cardboard.

* We should then take this cardboard (with all the stuffs on it) around our entire house.

* One person should follow this person who is carrying cardboard with a plate which should be beaten to produce sound.

* We should place our old broom outside our house in a corner.

* We should then place this cardboard besides this broom and carry both of these things to be throw in the garbage bin near our house.

* We should then join our hands and pray saying the following words "ईडा, पीडा टलो, बळीचे राज्ययेवो" ("Let all the unholy come to end and let there be rule of King Bali").

2) Poojan to be Performed on the Day of Laxmi Poojan

* We should keep 5 fruits & a mixture of coriander seeds and jaggery as holy offering (Prasad).

* We should keep a new broom on the starting line of our house (उंबरठा) and offer kumkum and turmeric powder (haldi) to it  and offer the following prayer " हे लक्ष्मीमाते - नंदामाते, तू नेहमी माझ्या चुका दाखव. आईच्या मायेने माझ्या अंगावरून हात फिरव. बहिणीसारखे वाटेतील काटे काढ, पापणिच्या केसासारखा माझ्या मनातील व घरातील कचरा काढ आणि माझ्या घरात नंदामाते मते तू सतत वावरत रहा ही तुझ्या चरणी प्रार्थना." ("Oh Goddess Lakshmi i.e. my P. P. Nandai, You always bring my mistakes to my notice. Shower love on me like my mother. Be my sister and remove obstacles in my way. Remove dirt from my house and mind like an eyelid. And finally I pray and urge You to stay in my house for ever").

Film on Sai Niwas (Cradle of Shree Sai Charitra)

Sai Niwas
, the place wherein the Shree Sai Charita was composed by Hemadpant by Grace of Sai Baba, is a place of real serenity and inspiration for one and all. The Sadguru Bhakti which was initiated by Hemadpant was further nurtured by Meena Vahini, his grand-daughter- in- law by her Devotion towards P.P. Bapu.

Meena Vahini and Sadya Pipa Govindsinh Dabholkar had borne witness to the revelation of Bapu at Sai Niwas [Pragatikaran] and this incident has been stated in the Aniruddha Chalisa as  
Sai Niwas mein pargat gwala......”

Bapu has always shared a very special Connection with Sai Niwas and this has been experienced first hand by the Dabholkar family and a few of the Shraddhavans.

Meena Vahini, through her unwavering faith and Bhakti on her Sadguru P.P Bapu, had covered quite a remarkable distance on the path of Righteousness. Also She was the living example of the fact that every person can travel on the path of Righteousness without shirking away from any of the Responsibilities of Family and Household. She states very clearly in her own abhanga

“ Bapu Aala ani Jahle Nishchint.
Sakal Vyavastha Tuchi Davili”

She also states in another abhanga that
“Sai ase Majhi Aai,
Baap Majha Aniruddha”

Such a wealth of Love, affection and Bhakti is stored in Sai Niwas. Many of us have never been able to know in details about Sai Niwas, Meena vahini and the Bond that Bapu shares with Sai Niwas.

Thus a film compiling the experiences of a select few persons who had the good fortune to experience all these above mentioned things first hand has been created and the first few segments of this film shall be played at Shree Harigurugram tomorrow.

DVD of the this compilation was shown at Shree Harigurugram on 29th September 2011. These DVDs have been opened for sales for devotees to avail its benefit. Don't forget to watch this ultimate film and share your experience about it.
