Fathers devotion on Shiva Lingam :
Any Gods work is possible only if our ancestors, family members
have done good deeds along with our own good karma in several previous
births. I am as ordinary as any other devotee of Guru Shirdi Saibaba
and Lord Shiva , "Shiva perumaan" as we affectionately
call him in tamil. From 2004 , i have realized the greatness of
Lord Shiva. His leelas are enternal truth and all about Love.
Though i have gained some punya by worshipping Lord Shiva in Sangameshwaran
temple every pradosham in 2005 , i honestly feel , it is the punya
gained by my father P.Chandrasekaran , that made me show devotion
on Shiva Lingam . My father has done Abishekam ( Holy bath ) to
a small Lord Shiva and Nandhi statue we have for years. I have seen
my father having great respect on Shiva perumaan and mostly he uses
only water alone for holy bath of Shiva Lingam. I realized , our
love for God must go beyond what we gain or loose in life and one
good nature i like in my father is that he does his pooja everyday
as an act of showing love on God.
Anbe Shivam - Love is God :
Most readers of this Divine work will be devotees of Lord Shiva
or Shirdi Sai baba or any Sadguru. I have realized though i am doing
some holy works , my mind is still a monkey. Ofcourse scriptures
says " Our mind changes crores of times every minute".
So imagine the mind which is always hooked to maya. This divine
work is to help the children of God practice a simple way of meditation.
NO....I am not starting another so called "Meditation technique"
. Please let us not get in to this commercial world friends.
Washing the impurities in us by
imagining theres a Shiva temple in us :
Let us see ourself alone. Let us see the impurities in Us, bad
habits , unwated relationships and company, desires which are unable
to control , Ego, lust, anger, greediness, jealousy and what not
... There are few things we wish to change but it happens due to
I have tried many times to concentrate only on my Guru Bhakti,
Guru Seva and other divine activities like doing pooja, abishekam
, going to temples etc but i realized in kaliyug, unless otherwise
we keep on remembering Gods name and his form, its not easy to be
Internal Pooja for Lord Subramanya,
Sai and Shiva Lingam :
When i was working in Mumbai, one of my student gifted me a chanting
counter, for few days i was not interested in it. Later this was
my routine. I woke up, took bath, lit 2 lamps to Sainath, Shiva,
mahalakshmi, Saraswathi and Ganesha photos , offer bhel leaves to
a little Shiva Lingam in a temple, garland for Lord Hanuman and
then take the train. While standing in the train , i used to imagine
holy feets of Lord Subramanya ( karthikeya ) and do pooja. I imagine
that i am offering chandan, honey, vibuthi ( sacred ash ) and water
to Murugan. While doing this i used to chant some gods name . Being
a shirdi saibaba devotee, i also used to do the same pooja for holy
feets of Guru Sai baba. Sometimes i also imagine as if i am doing
this holy bath and offer flowers to Shiva lingam in my own heart.
Building temple for Lord Shiva :
Sometimes i build my own imaginary temples. Since i was travelling
in local train , very few moments i will be able to close my eyes.
Though my eyes were open, i try to concentrate on my divine imagination.
As if theres a Shiva temple, i go inside it, i see a Beautiful Shiva
Lingam for which am doing holy bath with Milk, coconut water, Vibuthi,
Honey, Ghee , chandan. Then i offer flowers , bhel leaves ....while
doing this imagination atleast few seconds when i close my eyes,
i was able to see really something divine, something more than what
i could imagine.
I realized when we do our work properly, have good habits, maintain
good friends alone and being devoted to God, if we imagine Gods
form and Chant Gods name, Surely God will also do his leela by blessing
us with divine feelings. Its something one has to experience. I
have experienced it and when ever i did this internal pooja for
Shiva Lingam and the holy paadhukas of Sainath , i have experienced
I hope you also experience the same. This is a simple meditation
or you can say a sweet pooja for the Guru we love and God we adore.
Where ever you are, what ever you do, offer yourself in the holy
feets of Guru and gradually our guru will lead us to God .
God only looks at your devotion
- Good deeds and thoughts :
So friend, I am not asking you to close your eyes or open your
eyes or sit in a purticular posture. I am pleading for realizing
a simple truth . " God wants your love - your devotion "
. Theres no rules and regulations for devotion. Ofcourse theres
some thing called being clean, keeping our place we live clean etc
but beyond that "God looks only at our devotion" . Make
sure you also cultivate good thoughts and deeds.
Theres a internal temple and an
internal God - This Divine work is to help ourself build
a temple for lord shiva in our own heart ( atman ) and do pooja
to Shiva Lingam everyday mentally ,
Imagine that you do holy bath with chandan, vibuthi, honey,milk
Then offer bhel leaves, flowers and garland
Then if you have a True guru ( Sadguru ) , Then imagine that you
are doing the same holy bath, offering of flowers as per your ability
Then chant any little chanting mantra of Lord Shiva or mantra of
"Om Nama Shivaya" or Om...Om...Oooommm or "Sai Sai
Sai , or " Maha Mrutyunjaya Mantra or if you are interested
the words shirdi sai baba asked me to chant through a dream which
is "Sai Paadha Lingam"
Why imagine a Guru's Paadhuka -
Greatness of Guru :
Guru from Dattatreya Parampara like Shri Paadha Shri Vallabha,
Narasimha Saraswati, Swami Samartha, Saibaba of Shirdi whom i love
to call as Sainath has stressed worship of Guru paadhukas. Further
other saints and sidhars too have guided their deciples to show
devotion to their gurus Holy feets which can be imagined through
Chanting "Om Namah Shivaya"
You can chant "Om Nama Shivaya" , simple Om, Om Om or
any Mantra of Lord Shiva . If interested and if you like it, you
can choose to chant "Sai Paadha Lingam" . Honestly i myself
don't chant "Sai Paadha lingam" much. Just because i got
this dream i feel i must not neglect this and chant "sai paadha
lingam". So you can always prefer to chant your favourite little
mantra "Om Namah Shivaya".
The reason i kept this site by this name is because some people
pray to lord shiva but they are not able to come out of their bad
habits and bad nature like ego, anger, lust,money mindedness etc.
So if such lord shiva devotees either follow a true Gurus path of
light or do self analysis and try to avoid bad qualities and gradually
involve in more good deeds,surely they will feel the power of lord
shiva more beautifully. The concept is simple, Being a shiva devotee
is not enoough, we must also make our self better human beings.
A Gods message which made me realize
my devotion for Lord Shiva :
Well, in the past few years by grace of my Guru Shirdi Sai baba,
i have been making very small websites for all Gods and Goddess
in love. My Father was recently reading a Book about 63 Nayanmars
and i also remembered the dream i had on July 2008 . Those days
i used to go for work at 7 A.M and come back to my room very late
at 12. I will be very tired and simply chant "Sai sai sai"
or any Gods name and sleep. The name of this website is based on
the below dream i got.
A dream by Gods grace and Gurus
First of all before we proceed to the dream, Please remember God
and Guru chooses different ways to guide his children. Two things
i request you to avoid. Firstly , dont worry of you are missing
such divine dreams. May be God has a better way to hint you or God
choosed to be silently appreciate your devotion. Secondly, now a
days this dreams , especially dreams from shirdi saibaba has become
a thing to be proud or to gain some benefits.
Gods message must be implemented with purity and
Any Gods message must be considered sacred and one must use it
for welfare of humanity. I have got dreams that i build temple,
i have to take it as a blessing and not immediately start to collect
donation to build a temple unless i have the maturity to do it .
We have to be careful in doing guru seva and never get attracted
to money and fame.
Though i keep the dreams i get very personaly amoung my sai friends,
this purticular words i got in dream became a website because i
felt it inspires devotion. If you are reading so much in this site
, i am sure any day , any time you will atleast try to imagine that
you do pooja for any of your favourite God, Goddess or Guru. This
alone is my goal and i offer it in the holy feets of sainath . Now
listen to the beautiful dream....
What happens when a guru asks you
to chant "Sai Paadha Lingam "
The dream was so vivid and clear...It must be early morning of
someday in end of july 2008...
In the dream i see a person with bad omen is saying poetically
in tamil which i don't want to reveal as only good things must be
spreaded. He was saying as if its a achievement for him as it gave
me setbacks in my career for years.I realized that in kaliyug ,
people who are devoted to god and guru become enemies of such evil
people who are invisible to our eyes.
Then Shirdi Sai Baba appeared like a fakir and said
"Sai Paadha Lingam"
I felt as if Shirdi Saibaba is telling me that Now chant "Sai
Paadha lingam" . I could clearly get the message that some
one has been trying to spoil my life for years and sai was not able
to help me for yearsthough i pray so much and do good deeds. Finally
sai gave me this mantra "Sai paadha lingam" to chant everyday.
I believe in Lord Thirupathi venkateshwara's powers as my father
named me venkat raman since i was born when he had a pilgrimage
in Tirupati...Those days i was not remembering lord shiva that much
but i love lord shiva also.
The dream was very small , a bad person doing some thing with evil
stuff to see me sad and depressed. He is proud that he was able
to hurt me though i am devoted to Sai and Shiva. So to help me ,
Sai gave me this little mantra to chant " Sai paadha lingam"
i woke up and saw the baba photo
which i am worshipping everyday lighting lamps...
It has a mahalakshmi in right side of saibaba, lord Ganesha in
left... sangu and sakaram in above sides and in the middle ...
background has a Shiva LINGAM and infront of the Lingam is a beautiful
form of shirdi saibaba crossed legs , smiling with powerful small
I realized the photo and what Saibaba uttered in my dream were
"Sai Paadha Lingam"
from that day when ever i go in train i used to chant
Sai Paadha Lingam
Sai Paadha Lingam
Sai Paadha Lingam
Saibaba's favour in helping me be
devoted to Lord Shiva :
During my Shirdi pilgrimage in june 2008, i prayed sainath that
baba must bless me with a ability to always remember his light chanting
"sai sai sai"
Gradually sai helped me practice this chanting of "Sai sai
Later i was ble to imagine lord shiva Lingam statue infront of
it is SaiBaba's Padhukas
the meaning of the little words
"Sai Paadha Lingam" is
The God - Lord Shiva
Who is the creater , to whom everything belongs and who has no
form and covers eveything being a eternal Light represented by the
Shiva Lingam ( according to my understanding - Theres a philosophy
for shivalingam which everyone says but i dont want to get in to
it. I am praying sainath to bless me to understand the "Real"
nature of shiva lingam and its going to take years)
who is pure
who cares for his devotees
who shows loves
whos heart is like a mother
who guides us living in our atman.
The Saints Holy foot
Paadha in tamil means Foot. So the Holy feets of our sadguru (
for me being saint shirdi saibaba )
All combined in one place , one form
Here -- Sai Paadha means the Gurus Feets is all we need ...we have
to whole heartedly surrender to our shirdi saibabas holy feets..all
our desires, needs, wants and hopes , even the relationships , wealth
and health and every single thought must be placed in holy feets
of SAINT. If you have any other Guru in Datta parampara or a ancient
sidhar , yogi , 63 nayanmar or Dakshinamurthy, you can imagine that
the paadhukas here represents their paadhukas.
All we need is to understand that God is One, God encircles all
of us, and remembering the Guru and chanting " sai sai sai
" , "Om Nahah Shivaya" or any sacred mantra of any
God you love, it is enough to help you lead a peaceful simple life
This temple is already created in my heart by Sai Baba's blessings
i can see the Shiva temple and the statue "Shiva Lingam "
shining gloriously By babas grace am also able to offer flowers,do
abhisekam and offer my soul as small light of jasmine flowers over
the lord shiva lingam and below it the padhukas of Sainath .
Friends, Hope you also like to do this simple meditation, if possible
please do it when you are at peace in your house, or do it when
you go to any pilgrimage places or in day to day life when ever
you travel or do any works.
To be simple
When ever you wish to offer your devotion and love for shirdi saibaba,
Your Guru and Lord Shiva
Om Naham Shivaya.....................
108 times, 1008 times
or the entire day...atleast when
ever you remember to chant...
and imagine thatyou are gradually building a Lord Shiva temple
in your own heart, Theres a beautiful shiva lingam which you are
sculpturing with your own hands
then imagine that you offer water, milk abishekam and jasmine flowers
or any flowers you love over this Shiv Lingam
I wonder which Gods force made me
share the sakthi path with you :
I never requested everyone who reads this to chant "sai paadha
lingam" . Do it only if you feel attached to it and if you
feel its a message for you . Infact this is called Sakthi path.
A message given by guru to his deciple. I shared because i have
read in sai satcharitra that we have to share what sai taught us
with everyone so that it is benefitting the entire universe.
I am sure some of you can feel the vibration it creates. Even when
i wrote this article , i did feel may be i must have kept this "Sai
paadha lingam" as secret for my personal devotion alone and
do a lord shiva website in a different name. Somehow it is not the
selfish "me" who is doing all this friends. You can take
sai paadha lingam as a simple spark to encourage you to be more
devoted to Lord Shiva and continue your devotion as usual.In kaliyug
with many distractions, something like this helps Lord Shiva devotees
be more sincere in their devotion.
Probably God made me share my simple pooja with all of you because
it might create a spark of devotion in you. In kaliyug , kali purusha
is eager to spread kama ( lust ) and sins of speech in all possible
ways and even a single drop of work from a ordinary person like
me to help everyone lead a simple pure life, to keep their mind
so pure as if theres a shiva temple inside themselves and do pooja
to shiva lingam is some thing God wants .
Once again i plead,
Offer your bad habits, thoughts and deeds in holy feets of sainath
and Show your love on God. God wants your love.
Blessings of Imaginining that you
build Shiva temple and offer pooja to Shiva lingam and holy feets
of Sadguru :
Lord Dattatreya , Shri Paadha Shri Vallabha, Narasimha Saraswati,
Swami samartha, my Guru Shirdi Saibaba, the great ancient Sidha,
yogis of bharatam and adi Guru Lord Shiva bless all children of
God with peace, prospertity and Happiness
Sai will fill your heart with the enormous glory of God, The sacredness
of saints and peace of deep ocean.
Lets chant togather ...
"Om Namah Shivaya
Om Naham Shivaya
Om Namah Shivaya"
and or Any good Lord Shiva mantra you like.
To help you realize the power of internal pooja , i have the below
holy words from sacred book depicting life of Saint "Narasimha
" The greatest kind of Pooja is the one which is done internally
" - Shri Guru Charitra
"Thennatudaya Shivane potri,
Ennatavarkum Iraivaa potri "
always in the holy feets of shirdi saibaba
