Baba Nebhraj

Even as a riderless horse is your mind,

O man! Therefore surrender yourself to the Guru.

He will transform you and make you his.

    Illuminating messages from Puj Shahenshah Baba Nebhraj Sahib

    Puj Shahenshah Baba Nebhraj Sahib shed his mortal coil in the year 1949. Some years later Puj Dada Ratanchandji was touched by the spirit of the Ever-Living Puj Shahenshah Baba Nebhraj Sahib. Ever since, this link has been growing stronger day by day. From time to time Puj Dada Ratanchandji receives messages, at once inspiring and illuminating, from Puj Shahenshah Baba Nebhraj Sahib from the World Beyond. These messages of course are in his sweet lyrical Sindhi language.

    A free English rendering of some of these messages of this poet, seer and saint are being given here:

    *****

    The world is an inn where Time, the Monarch rules.
    Death, which is akin to the human race claims all beings.
    So keep away from fraud and sin.
    God hath upon you blessings bountifully bestowed.

    *****

    You have been granted the gift of life,
    along with possessions, beauty, strength and intelligence.
    So lift you heart to Him and commune with the Great Giver.
    Hand over your burden of worries and woes to Him
    Who all burdens bears,
    To Him who for you cares.

    *****

    Even as a riderless horse is your mind,
    O man! Therefore surrender yourself to the Guru.
    He will transform you and make you his.
    Your life will then be fulfilled in the here and hereafter.
    Beware, God is a hard task-master!
    So fling all egoism aside and seek His fellowship in the spirit of meekness.
    Human beings needs must slay the self and with a heart, contrite and lowly,
    Seek refuge at the feet of The Sovereign Supreme.

    *****

    That life is truly lived which is spent in the remembrance of God.
    Drown not your life.
    In the whirlpool of illusion,
    Nor remain deluded,
    In the dance of desires.
    Eschew your arrogance,
    And walk the way of humility,
    And serve the distressed and the needy,
    Who are dear to the Lord.
    To please them is to win the favour of the Divine.
    The blessings of the broken and the bereaved will enrich your life.
    When from this world you depart,
    You will have to Yama render account.
    So dive deep within.
    Strict is the govenrment of God,
    So strive to remain calm and composed,
    For fortune favours the tranquil and the serene.

    *****

    Pray to the Lord to bestow His mercy upon you.
    Be kind to all - to human beings and to the birds and animals.
    Have compassion upon the winged ones and the crawling, creeping creatures.
    Be merciful to everyone who seeks your help.
    Beseech mercy for friend and foe.
    Let your speech have in it the hum of mercy.
    Be kind to those you come across,
    O creature of God! Then upon you will fall ceaselessly the shower of His mercy.
    Forget not Him who never forgets you and is ever gracious and ever kind.
    Friendship with Him is ever-lasting.

    *****

    Death keeps no calendar.
    It pounces upon its prey swiftly and suddenly.
    Yet, O man, you live and move in the mart of this world foolishly forgetful of Death's shadow overhead.
    Unaware are you of the date, the season, the month and the day of your departure from the world.
    Don't you notice how the aged continue to exist while youngsters expire?
    Death pounds even the lion-hearted to specks of dust.
    None may the Mystic Wonder fathom and comprehend.
    Infinite is He, limitless is He.
    Be not vain of your physical charm, mental equipment and bodily strength.
    Be wise. Do not be deluded by the glamour of the world.
    Live in constant thoughts of the Divine.
    Learn the art, the skill of seeking the Lord from an enlightened one.
    All that you behold is transient. Nothing abides forever save God.
    Cast aside vices and wickedness, cunningness and diplomacy.
    Succumb not to sin, falsehood and jealousy.
    He, the All-knowing, finding you prey to evil desires,
    May turn His face away from you.
    So be not arrogant and egoistic.
    The Lord is a hard task-master.

    *****

    They perish who resort to deceit
    But they who tread the path of truth
    Find open unto them the gates of heaven.

    *****

    Keep your eyes and heart pure
    And abstain from deceit and sin.

    *****

    Silence invites holy peace
    While speech to discord leads.

    *****

    The gracious One, the loving One,
    The omnipresent, the dispeller of grief,
    Covers our faults, heals the sick
    And upholds our honour.
    He supports the feeble and the infirm
    The disabled and the distressed,
    The hopeless and the helpless.
    He looks after the orphans.
    He relieves us of our misery
    And rids us of our worries.

    In times of trials and tribulations,
    In days of difficulties and dangers,
    In our hours of anguish and agony,
    And when death comes to claim us,
    He rushes to our rescue.
    He is the Great Giver, the Bestower,
    We are but beggars that stand
    As supplicants at His door.
    None may fathom His creation
    None may it comprehend.

    Beloved of my Heart, O Master mine,
    The Immanent One art Thou!
    Look not to my failings and frailities
    Nor to the faults I commit,
    But in Thy mercy me accept.

    *****

    They who brag fall
    In the esteem of the Beloved.

    *****

    Live in the constant remembrance of the Lord
    And beseech Him to free you from the tyranny of fate.
    Beg of the Beloved to make you His.

    *****

    Be Thou my Shield, Beloved!
    And forgive Thou my trespasses.

    *****

    Man comes to this world
    To repay his debts.
    Your spouse, your children,
    Your companions and your friends
    Will compel you to return
    What they have loaned to you.

    Whatsoever falls to your lot,
    Be it joy or grief, pleasure or pain,
    It is the result of your deeds.
    You alone are responsible
    For it all.

    Regard none as your enemy,
    In the hands of God rests your destiny.
    Realize the worth of human life
    And never, never forget Him.
    He alone is your true friend,
    your helper and your guide,
    it is He who supplies all your wants,
    So cherish implicit faith in Him.

    By doing good deeds
    Doth man evolve,
    But when he resorts to sin
    Alas! he doth fall.

    Man burns in the fire
    Of his vices and desires
    He reaps the fruit of his actions.
    God, the Ever-compassionate One,
    Harms none.
    God, the Perfect One,
    Surrounds all with the sunshine
    Of His love.
