His Life was His Message
beloved Guruji left the body on Monday 27th March 2006.
Guruji worked tirelessly to help in Baba's mission of
bringing righteousness to humanity and also to reduce the
effects and suffering on mankind that would otherwise have
been caused by natural calamities.
With Baba's blessings and guidance, He achieved in such a
short space of time what no human being could possibly
achieve. His work and mission will continue through
devotees, with His guidance.
Guruji incarnated to help in Baba's mission. And now
Baba has taken Him and moved Him onto a more important task.
Introduction to Guruji

When He was in a very responsible position, destined for a
shining career, Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba instructed Him to
leave the Army and to devote Himself completely to the
spiritual upliftment of mankind. He immediately surrendered
Himself to Baba and started serving humanity.

us of our divine origin. He heals people through spiritual
energy, and guides us onto the spiritual path towards
liberation from the cycle of life-and-death. Today, He is a
spiritual Master to thousands of devotees all over the world.
Every year He visits the following centres: Freiburg
(Germany), Zurich (Switzerland), London (England) and San Benedetto del Tronto (Italy) to spread Baba’s teachings and
bring people onto the righteous path. Guruji is

In 1999 the

years, Guruji has started several social projects in Rishikesh
which act as a model for service activities:
Support of two leper colonies
Special tuition and scholarship incentives for children
from poor families
Medical centres providing free medical aid for the poor
people in surrounding villages
Provision of drinking water outside the ashram wall
International Public School integrating modern worldly
knowledge, spiritual education and vocational training
Guruji is also
known all over the world as the man who, in 1989 (while He was
still a Major General in the Indian Army) was chosen by Sai
Baba and guided by Him to rediscover the extraordinary caves
However, since the inauguration of the Ashram, Baba has
transferred the energy from Patal Bhuvaneshvar to the Ashram,
where many devotees have had similar extraordinary
While a school teacher gives the knowledge
about day-to-day affairs, the guru gives the higher knowledge,
the knowledge about oneself, the knowledge that everyone is a
particle of God. God resides in everyone. We have to ignite
this divinity and merge with God.
In short, Guru
means spiritual teacher. Today, there are many teachers
claiming to be gurus. So it is important to be able to
distinguish. Once Sai Baba characterized the work of a true
guru as follows:
(preceptor) warns and awakens. He reveals the truth and
encourages you to progress towards it. But it is your
yearning that is most essential. The guru is like a gardener
who tends the plant. But the sapling must sprout before He
can take charge. He does not add anything new to the plant;
He only helps it grow according to its own destiny - quicker
and more fully perhaps - but never against its inner nature.”
“The Guru is
the one who has identified His own consciousness with the pure
consciousness of God. He dwells at the deepest source point
of reality; there is no ego, no pretension, no limitation to
His expression of the highest Truth. He has completed the
most extraordinary journey and has thus relinquished forever
the illusions and limitations of the ordinary and narrow ego
The Guru makes us
understand the following Vedic
Guru Brahma Gurur Vishnu
Gurur Devo Maheshvara,
Guru Sakshat Parabrahma
The meaning of this
shloka is: the Guru is Brahma, the Guru is Vishnu, the
Guru is Maheshvara.
Guru is Brahma: as
Brahma creates the universe. He creates a devotee from a
normal human being, igniting the divinity within oneself. We
all are divine, but we have lost our divinity because of our
karmas in various lives. The guru re-ignites this divinity
Guru is Vishnu: as
Vishnu sustains the universe. He sustains the devotee,
protecting him in various circumstances and in the moment of
doubt maintains the flame of the divinity burning.
Guru is Maheshvara
(Shiva): like Shiva, he destroys the six demons (ego, anger,
greed, lust, desire, jealousy) in the mind of the devotee.
