God has incarnated as Sai Baba to help his devotees and spread two important things
in everybody's life Shraddha and Saburi (Faith and Patience). When there is wholehearted
faith and surrender yourself completely to him, he will fulfil all your wishes by
removing all shackles and keeping us away from sense-objects to make us quite indifferent
to pleasures and pains leading us on the spiritual path. In many of our poojas to
Sai Baba, he gave his darshan to us in different form and he has been blessing us.
We felt “Is it so easy to see Sai “ but only if surrendered completely to him. Such
a kind hearted Sai was and one of his devote Dasganu described him as Tu Malayagiri
Chandana! Meaning you are the sandalwood from Malaygiri. Whenever you call Sairam
whole heartedly with true devotion, he will appear immediately in some kind of form
to answer all your prayers. He showers abundant motherly love more than a mother.
We want to share this to everybody and that made us to develop Sri Saikalpa trust.
As one of the initiative Sri Saikalpa trust developed a book called “Sri Saikalpa”
to reach all the devotees and book was launched on Vijaydasami day in year 2012
at Saibaba Mylapore Temple day with Annadanam to 10000 plus devotees and distributed
1 lakh books in India and abroad.
These pictures were collected from different sources and added in each page. It
will provide more in-sight and gain more and more devotion to the devotees of Sai
by reading and understanding the story more clearly by looking in to the pictures.
Saikalpa also ensures to inspire children to help them understand the life history
of Sai easily and was developed in accordance.
The highlight of the Saikalpa book is the pictures which were collected from different
sources merged and added in each page. It provides more in-sight and helps to gain
more and more devotion to the devotees of Sai by reading and understanding the story
more clearly by looking into the pictures. Saikalpa also ensures to inspire children
to help them understand the life history of Sai easily. In the Saikalpa book the
devotees can see the images next to the content while singing which will make them
feel SAI. The book was made with all collections of Ganesha Pancharatnam Stotram,
Shiridi Aartis, Vishnusahasranamam, Stavan Manjiri, Guru Avatars, Sai Astotrasatanamavali,
Sri Sai Astakam, Sayings of SAI, Nectar miracles of Baba. Many such books are available
in market but baba has put his hand on SAIKALPA and blessed to help all devotees
to wave their struggles and problems in their life.
Saikalpa Trust was supported and blessed by Actress Anjali amma and Singer PB Srinivas
and Saikalpa also honoured them. Thulasi plants were distributed to the devotees
on Saikalpa Trust inauguration day. After our launch, we got immense joy when we
saw the response of devotees emailing us the miracles happened when the books reached
them. At Malaysia during our visit to Saibaba Temple Mrs Datin Indrani Samy Vellu
took the honour of launching Saikalpa book . Mr Kannan Baba of Malaysia who is a
great blessed devotee of baba supported Saikalpa activities at Malaysia temples
and helped to see that Saikalpa books reached the devotees.
We intent to increase the devotion and belief on Sai and every house of Sai devotee
should have this book. In the second year we have sponsored for songs of a small
film in Telugu, Hindi and Tamil. The songs are very melodious which will touch the
heart of the devotee and the launch & release of the album was done in front of
Saisamadhi in Shiridi which is a great honour from Sai for Saikalpa. It has got
9 songs symbolically referring to 9 coins given to Lakshmi bhai by Sai Baba. The
songs were sung by famous singers P. Susila, Tippu, Harini, Krish, Unni Krishnan,
MadhuBala Krishnan, Balamurugan and Saketh which has come out as excellent melodies.

On successful launch & distribution of SAIKALPA devotional books since 2012, we
have composed a 2nd edition of SAIKALPA which comes in a multi-colored and contains
Aartis, Ashtakam, Guru Padukastotram, Stavanmanjari in 3 languages Telugu, Tamil
and English which will be released soon and this edition highlights Dasganumaharaj’s
Stavanmanjiri. It is a divine blessing to present you with this book of Shri Sainath
Stavana Manjari, a collection of slokas explained pictorially along with a translation
in English. The reason to add images and translation by Smt. Zarine Taraporevala
is to help the devotees to profoundly understand each and every line of Stavana
Manjari and experience the DIVINE Sai while doing parayanam of this book.
Sri Sainath Stavana Manjari is written by Dasaganu Maharaj, an ardent and staunch
devotee of Shri Sai Baba, in Marathi language and has been translated into many
languages. The Stavana Manjari is a long hymn of 163 phrases. Dasaganu is a known
name across the world amongst Sai Bhaktas.Sainath Stavana Manjari by Dasaganu Maharaj
was completed on 9th September 1918 at Maheshwar near Indore on the banks of river
Narmada just 37 days before Baba took Mahasamadhi on 15th October 1918. This hymn
is a humble tribute to Shri Sainath. It is a very unique and heart melting composition
of 163 Shlokas. It starts off by invoking Lord Ganesh and other deities and pays
rich tribute to Baba subtly in the ﬁfth shloka implicitly by calling him as Vishnu
and Shankar. Baba is named only in the 13th shloka. Here Dasaganu persistently pleads
to Baba to cleanse him off his sins and to help him and all the devotees to overcome
their wordly and spiritual difﬁculties. SAIKALPA’s priority remains with SAI’s devotes
in this universe, who we believe are at the heart of our existence. This has made
SAIKALPA to come out with an innovative, useful and must have wonderful treasure
of SAIBABA’s original images & things used by him in the form of a single sheet
mat-finished devotional calendar. This wonderful treasure calendar is available
for all & you can order on-line at www.srisaikalpa.com
