Our prayers can save this world

Sreejith Narayan

There are many prophecies and dreams/visions of devotees from around the world that foretell impending destruction to the earth. Edgar Cayce, a renowned psychic had predicted many such dreadful calamities.

One of Cayce's major prophecies is about the disappearance of Japan. I believe that Swami averted that disaster by taking it upon His body during March/April 2011. Cayce also believed that the future disasters could be averted if humanity changes its behavior. And according to him, this was the main purpose of giving prophecies - to warn people to change so that the prophecies would not come to pass. So in my humble opinion, none of the prophecies are carved in stone and can be changed with Swami’s Grace by the virtue of prayers and the good deeds of man.

Swami indicated such a change when He said:

"Were it not for the mind change of Sai devotees the world would already have fallen into complete chaos. The deterioration of mind and man has been very rapid and abrupt, even precipitous during the last fifteen years. That the world is not in total destruction is due to the change of mind of Sai devotees and to Sai's Grace" - Conversations with Sathya Sai Baba by Dr. J. Hislop, p. 190

I believe that the Sai Avatar has come for this purpose, to avert such crisis that has come upon the humanity and to mark the commencement of a beautiful golden age as mentioned in many of His discourses.

Edgar Cayce also foresaw a new era of enlightenment and peace for humanity in the future: "A new order of conditions is to arise; there must be a purging in high places as well as low; and that there must be the greater consideration of the individual, so that each soul being his brother's keeper. Then certain circumstances will arise in the political, the economic, and whole relationships to which a leveling will occur or a greater comprehension of the need for it. This America of ours, hardly a new Atlantis, will have another thousand years of peace, another Millennium. All this done in the same manner that the prayers of ten just men once saved a city. And then the deeds, the prayers of the faithful will glorify the Father as peace and love will reign for those who love the Lord."

The above prophecy emphasizes the need for prayers to save this world. Like how the prayers of ten noble men once saved a city, let us Sai devotees join together with all our hearts and pray fervently to our beloved Lord to save this world from all impending calamities. Let us pray for the benefit of all the beings in all the worlds. Let us indulge in intense chanting of Gayathri Mantra and “Samastha Lokah Sukhinobhavantu”.

[Footnote: This is what Edgar Cayce had to say about the day of the Lord: “What is meant by “the day of the Lord is near at hand”? That as has been promised through the prophets and the sages of old, the time – and half time – has been and is being fulfilled in this day and generation, and that soon there will again appear in the earth that One through whom many will be called to meet those that are preparing the way for His day in the earth. The Lord, then, will come, even as ye have seen Him go. - Edgar Cayce reading (262-49) July 9, 1933]

This is a truly beautiful post by our Beloved Host, Sreejith Narayan. I, personally, am totally committed to this approach, regardless of outcome. My intent is to live in deep prayer......each moment of every day. Prayerfulness as a way of life. What do I mean by Prayerfulness? ....Living with a deep and abiding love for, and AS all Beings. God is Love. God is Truth. God is Righteous Action. God is Peace. God is Non-Violence. God is all Beings. May we all live this. May we all aspire to this. May we all be TRUE TRUTH ASPIRANTS. Aum Aum Aum Shanti Shanti Shanti.

Gayatri Mantra.....intensely chanted.....Amen!!!!!!!!

Yes, Chanting of Gayathri by all devotees in unison wherever they are will purge the world of evil that dances everywhere. Let us, each one make a sincere prayer to Mother Gayathri who is to accompany Bagawan on his return to earth in His pristine glory. Where there is a Will, there is a way. Let us start from wherever we are, whatever we do! Om Sri Sai Ram.

This is very wise advice from Brother Sreejith to pray and chant for the sake of the world. Swami Himself altered the mantra and directed us in 2008 to chant "Samastha Lokah Sukhino Bhavanthu"; His reasons are always profound; His words are never idle chatter.

We cannot know what influence our prayers may already have had in averting catastrophe so it is worth repeating now a story related in an earlier comment.
In an interview on Radio Sai, Dr Deepak Anand reported an amazing incident of Swami hearing and responding to the intense prayers of many people.

Some students were called by Swami and they found Him sitting in total silence for a long time. Breaking the silence, Swami then asked the students present about the significance of that day; what happened on that day? They did not know and Baba then revealed it was an anniversary of the day the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Swami went on to say that, "at that very moment" in Osaka in Japan, thousands of people had gathered with candles lit, and "they are all praying to Me that such a catastrophe, should never befall any other nation... I listened to their prayers and I came!"

(Radio Sai: Fleeting Moments Lasting Memories, May 2012 FM_LM_120_DR_DEEPAK_ANAND_PART_02.mp3 (about 33 minutes from start))

Many devotees believe that Swami's illness in 2011 was connected with the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan. The story told by Dr Anand reveals that, long before the 2011 disaster, Swami had responded to the fervent prayers of people calling out on the anniversary of Hiroshima and, I believe, He made a promise to them, which was fulfilled in 2011.

Imagine what immense power was generated by the sincere prayers of those ordinary people if it could prevent a nuclear 'melt-down'? They were not all devotees of Sri Sathya Sai Baba praying; they were God's devotees praying to their chosen form, or the formless God, but the prayers all reached their destination.

Now it is up to all of us to take Sreejith's advice: ".... let us Sai devotees join together with all our hearts and pray fervently to our beloved Lord to save this world from all impending calamities."

"Our Prayers Can Save This World". Confirmed by Swami Himself:

"Remember that there is nothing in this world as powerful as the Lord's name to protect it. It is not arms and bombs that will save the world. Only God's grace should protect the world. It is man's foremost duty to pray for God's grace. Prayer is of supreme importance."

Discourse at the end of the Sivarathri bhajans on the morning of 13-2-1991 in the vast Poornachandra Auditorium. www.sssbpt.info/ssspeaks/volume24/sss24-04.pdf

My children, the time of awakening has come and that time is NOW. But for many of you it will pass without any positive action or participation on your part until, one day, you experience something traumatic which finally awakens you from your placid sleep. (SMFYM, II, 1988; c1986, 31-2.)

DEAR JOY

You posting has really touched my heart.

I find that when ever I have prayed sincerely for others..they have been helped by Swami.

A little real event i would like to share of SWAMIS LOVE AND GRACE THROUGH PRAYER.....if I may

....A Spanish woman who worked in my office 2007 could not bear children. She followed Jesus. I introduced SWAMI to her and Said He can give her a child if He wills (careful not to make promises.. no one knows SWAMI's Will..not realising Swami was guiding me.so I asked to her pray to Swami or Jesus....and do likataYoga (writing GODS name in a book as prayer for wishes). She was unable to do this so I did this for 1 whole year on her behalf(a promise I made to Swami)....after a year I gave her the books and told her to take them and a coconut to a river, break the coconut and put them in the river with Prayer to SWAMI. Both Husband and wife did this....a few months later she was pregnant and had healthy child 9 months later....JAI SAI RAM

She also had dream of Swami....and Swami told her He love me (Sai Dev) so much.......JAI SAI RAN BABAJI

SHE THANKED ME AND BABA BEYOND WORDS FOR HER MIRALCE BABY..BUT I told ONLY THANK BABA ...no one else...

She later sent me pictures of her son.

JAI SAI RAM

Sai Ram Dear Sai Dev. Thank you for so generously sharing such a private, beautiful story of Love, Service, Prayer and Grace. What incredible power was harnessed by your Faith, Service and Love for Swami and your fellow man!

There are so many stories, told and untold, of Amazing Grace flowing from sincere and selfless Prayers and yet we continue to doubt that we have enough power to bind the Lord...… even when Swami Himself gives Divine assurances…..

"I have to manifest the form, whenever My name is remembered with faith or sung with devotion."
Sanathana Sarathi Nov 2008

"The Avatar, or Form Incarnate, is only the concretisation of the yearning of the seekers. It is the solidified sweetness of the devotion of godly aspirants. The formless assumes the Form for the sake of these aspirants and seekers." Bhagavatha Vahini

This Sacred website is helping to 'unearth' many magical dreams and incidences like yours for sharing with other devotees to enrich our lives; to strengthen our Love for Bhagavan and His Creation and to inspire confidence to fulfil our DUTY to pray for God's Grace to protect the world. How Blessed we are to live in these times.

Sairam! Chanting the Gayathri is the prime solution for the ills of the world. Anyone on earth can chant it at anytime. There are no regulations of religion, community, gender. language and age (no such bias exist for this redeeming chant). Due to lethargy and slackness, we do not commit ourselves to the holy chant regularly and whenever we are free of any engagements!
