Mantra

“This mantra is the greatest proof for the truth of the bond between Swami and I. It shows that I am His Chit Shakthi.I am born from Him and I will merge back into Him”

Origin (23rd May 1998)

A devotee from London, Nirmala, read my first book and came to visit me in Vadakkampatti. After she returned to London, she wrote to me about some problems she was facing at work. She had full faith that my prayers would help her. She often wrote to me asking me to pray to Swami for her. During this time, I used to go to a Doctor’s house in Paramakudi, where Swami’s messages appear on chits. On 23, May 1998, Nirmala called me when I was in Paramakudi and said, “Amma, please tell me a Mantra to chant. It is very difficult here.” I said, “I do not know. I will ask Swami.” I prayed to Swami in the afternoon meditation. After meditation, we saw Swami had written on a piece of paper on the altar ‘Om Sri Sai Vasantha Saiesaiya Namaha.

‘VASANTHA SAI E SAIYA’ is SWAMI’S NAME. ‘Vasantha.+ Sai + Isa’, combine to become Vasantha Saiesaiya. God has a thousand names; this is one more.

How did this mantra come?

30 December 2003 Meditation

Vasantha : Om Sri Sai Vasantha Saiesaiya Namaha. How did this mantra come?

Swami
: It is through your Prema that your name joined with the name of God. You are showering that boundless Prema, which can join God’s name with yours.

As I am always crying for Swami, I wrote one song,

Oh Saieswara! Sathya Saieswara!
Why do Your thoughts always enchant me?
With a bond that cannot be renounced
Why do You follow me?
Oh the One with the Garuda flag!
Are my cries Your lullaby?
Are my tears Your cool shower?
You have no compassion.

Day and night I cried and lamented in this way. After intense yearning Swami said, “We are Radha and Krishna. This bond makes you yearn and cry for Me. I too am not able to leave you. I am following you. This Vasantha Sai mantra has emerged from this bond.”

Swami said this is Pancha-dashaakshari, the 15 letter mantra.

You must have such intense devotion that your name joins with God’s name. If you think about this measurement,then you will know howmuch I am yearning for God. You will  see how much my life force is yearning for God and begin to understand my nature. One’s name has become a mantra and has the power to remove the triple disease in man that of body, mind and soul.
