Description


• Udi is well known that Baba took Dakshina from all, and out of the amount thus collected, He distributed most of it to charity, purchasing only some fuel with the balance left. This fuel He threw in the dhuni - the sacred fire, which He kept ever burning. The ash from this fire was called Udi and was freely distributed to the devotees at the time of their departure from Shirdi.
• Baba taught by his Udi that all the visible phenomena in the universe is as transient as the ash. Our bodies, composed of matter comprising the 5 elements, will decompose after all their sense enjoyments are over, and will be reduced to ashes. In order to remind His devotees of the fact that their bodies will be reduced to ashes, Baba distributed Udi to them.
• Baba also taught by the Udi that Brahman is the only reality and the universe is ephemeral - that no one in this world, whether it be a father, mother, wife, or child is really ours. We come in this world alone, and we have to go out alone.
• It was found that the Udi cured many physical and mental maladies, but what Baba really wanted, was to din into the devotees’ ears, the principles of discrimination between the unreal and the real. He wanted to cultivate non-attachment for the unreal by His Udi and Dakshina.
• Udi teaches discrimination and the Dakshina, nonattachment. Unless we have discrimination and non-attachment, it is not possible to cross the sea of mundane existence. Sai Baba, therefore, asked for and took Dakshina, and, as the devotees would take their leave, He would give Udi as Prasad, besmearing it on their foreheads while placing His hand of blessing on their heads.
• When Baba was in a cheerful mood, He used to sing merrily. One such song was about Udi. The theme of this song was, “Oh, playful Rama, come, come, and bring with You sacks of Udi.” Baba used to sing in very clear and sweet tones.
• Thus, Udi has a strong spiritual implication, but it has material significance as well. It confers health, prosperity, freedom from anxiety and many other worldly gains.
• The Udi, therefore, creates both material and spiritual benefits.
