Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib would not only take care of humans, but he used to be very kind to, all the other creatures also.He would say, that the Human form, is the most precious form, gifted by the true beloved Lord to us. It is the most highest regarded form, because, in this form, we are given an opportunity, to become one, with the Lord, by doing Meditation on his pious name. In this precious human form, we can please the Lord, by sharing what we have been blessed with, with others.
When we live in our house, city, society and country, the one having the most highest post, performs his duty and takes care of the requirements and the safety of all under him. He is regarded and honored, as master or head, because, he performs his duties towards others very efficiently.
He will be regarded as the best of all, and above all, if he performs his duties towards the ones under him, by taking care of them and their safety, with complete honesty, but, if he shows his disrespect towards his duties, due to his ego, and troubles and hurts people, then he will lose his self respect, and every one will look down upon him, with hatred, and with such a bad conduct, he will be disrespecting, his dignified human form too.
God has sent us on this earth, by blessing us, with the highly regarded, human form, which is higher than all the other forms of living beings.
Being blessed with the human form, by the beloved Lord, it is the duty of the humans to take care of the safety and prosperity of all the other living beings, who are living or have taken birth, on this earth. If humans perform their duties of caring and helping all the living beings with honesty, they hold their heads high, with dignity and respect, before the beloved Lord.
Sant Satramdas Sahib came to this mother earth, as a blessing for humans, as well as for all the other creatures. He would teach people during his bhakti and satsangs, that they should take care of each and every creature, as all the living beings are the loving children of the Beloved Lord and the soul that dwells in humans, is present as a God’s charisma in others too, so humans should wake up and by not wasting time in self-centered thoughts and should be dutiful towards all the children of the beloved Lord.
Sant Satram Das Sahib would bless, and take care of, not only the birds and animals in the surroundings of Dham sahib, but used to go to the forests also, to bless them and would feed them, as per their food requirements, offering them , roti, food, grains, sweet tapashas, sugar and candy sugar, for big black and small ants.
By taking care of animals, birds and insects, Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib would make people realise, the value and importance of their great human form.
Sant Satramdas Sahib said, that humans are care takers of the other living beings, and they should be responsible, for the betterment and prosperity of everyone, because, they are blessed by the Lord Almighty with the greatest and valuable human form on this earth.
Due to the the noble selfless services by Sant Satramdas Sahib, people revered him and praised his greatness
After listening to the wonderful discourses of Sant Sai Satramdas sahib , people stopped troubling, slaughtering and beating birds and animals and used to take care of them by providing them food, water cereals and grass and used to keep them as their domestic pets also.
By following the teachings of Sant Satramdas Sahib, people would keep the utensils made of mud, filled with water, cereals and pulses on the roof tops and terraces, of their houses, for the birds, and also made arrangements to feed animals and insects.
People used to bring water, from the wells, for the animals, and used to store it outside their houses, in the big ponds, built by them.
Sant Satramdas Sahib would himself, apply medicines, on the wounds of injured animals and birds, he would take care of the sick cattle, by attending them personally and giving them medical treatment.
Through his divine satsangs, Sant Sai Satramdas Sahib taught people, not to make the innocent animals work, more than their capacity, and treat them with kindness and keep them just like how they would keep their own family members. Saijan always told people to provide good food and water to the animals and said, that, this was the secret of gaining Blessing of Dear Lord.
Sant Sai Satramdas said, that if we do good to others, God does good to us.
If we have mercy on the hungry, thirsty and troubled, God will shower his mercy upon us, and we will always prosper.
