True devotion of Mata Sachet Devi.
Saint Satramdas Sahib along with his life partner Mata Sachet Devi
and many of his followers reached Hyderabad on the invitation of
Shree Kundandas Teerathmal bhojwani for the wedding of his son
Shree Jeevandas bhojwani.
Thousands of people came to receive them on the station.
There were people who were singing devotional bhajans, some of
them were playing dholak and some were playing flutes.
People were dancing happily on the arrival of such a great Saint.
Saint Satramdas Saheb along with all those who came to receive him
reached the place where the actual wedding ceremony was going to
The Panchayat of Hyderabad, people from the nearby villages and
cities, Bhojwani family their relatives and many other Sadhus and
Saints had gathered to welcome, Saint Satramdas sahib with the
garlands of flowers and were showering beautiful rose petals on
Saint Satramdas Saheb participated in all the wedding ceremonies and personally blessed the groom on the ceremony of Sehra bandi( a beautiful head gear which a groom wears at the time of the wedding) and he also blessed him by performing certain rituals on behalf of his father at the time of the wedding,
as he was requested to perform all those rituals which are otherwise performed by the groom’s father.
Saint Satramdas Sahib along with his devotees did bhakti and keertan at the wedding and transmitted love and happiness in the hearts of the people, present at the wedding.
Mata Sachet Devi also was requested to perform all the rituals which are actually performed by the groom’s mother, and she very happily participated ,in the ceremony.
During the wedding ceremony many rich ladies wearing a lot of gold
Jewelry, and expensive dresses were present, they were all decked up
with gold bangles and heavy gold necklaces and beautiful
earrings, even the ladies from the neighborhoods were wearing
beautiful clothes and jewelry but Mata Sachet Devi was wearing a
simple dress with very simple jewelry.
when they all went to the girl’s house for the wedding ceremony the
ladies from the girl’s side were also dressed up very beautifully and
everyone’s jewelry was dazzling in the wedding lights. Mata Sachet
Devi got little upset as she was looking so simple compare to others.
After Saint Satramdas along with his disciples and followers came back to Raharki
Saheb, he asked Mata Sachet Devi if she enjoyed at the wedding ceremony.
Mata Sachet Devi while telling him about her experience at the
Wedding, became sad, and revealed her feeling of being so simple.
Saint Satramdas Saheb understood that his life partner was veiled by the ignorance of possessing worldly materialistic things and he should remove this veil of ignorance from her mind .
Saint Satramdas Saheb with his divine smile looked at Mata Sachet
Devi and suddenly with a slight gust of wind, one corner of Saint Satrandas
Saheb’s mattress moved up and Mata Sachet Devi to her great surprise saw that there were, precious jewels , gold , precious ornaments , diamonds etc under it.
Saint Satramdas Saheb with a beautiful smile Said” Sachet Devi, you take whatever you like from this “.
This sight and the divine light flowing from the eyes of
Saint Satramdas Saheb opened the window of her heart and illuminated her mind with the illumination of truth and she
Became, blissfully happy.
Mata Sachet Devi was spiritually awakened and she bowed her head
Before, Saint Satramdas Sahib and said “Shehensha, now my eyes have seen the divine light in the depth of darkness of ignorance and now I have understood that my honor is in serving a great Saint like you. Through your loving blessings I have realised that these materialistic things are useless and my actual valuable asset is my own inner self consciousness and that is Naam Ratan( God’s name) which can give Mukti to the one who is gifted with it, so today I request you at your divine lotus feet , that instead of these materialistic things , bless me with Naam Daan, so that I can prosper in true sense in my life.”
This desire of spiritual treasure and the acceptance of Naam Daan
from Saint Satramdas Saheb kept Maata Sachet Devi connected to meditation.
She used to serve at Sant Satram dham by washing clothes, cleaning
the temple, and looking after the guests and not letting anyone go, without eating
She was so spiritually awakened that everyday she would herself check if the food for
all the guest and even for the people who were unwell was ready on time. Mata Sachet Devi would give wonderful gifts to the women
guests before they left, and if anyone was in hurry she would pack
the food for them in a brass Tiffin box.
The food (bhandara Saheb) at Sant Satram dham would always be
ready on time without any delay.
The service at bhandara Sahib at Sant Satram dham never stopped.
Mata Sachet Devi would give her jewelry to poor and orphan girls.
The number of hands to take, would decrease but she would never
stop helping. she would make trousseau for the orphan girls and the girls of
poor and needy people too.
She was always connected to the selfless service and meditation.
The divine connection of her deep meditation and selfless service
was so pious that by connecting to Saint Satramdas Saheb the great
Mata Ganga appeared, and this day of such an auspicious meeting is
celebrated as auspicious Saturday.
Mata Sachet Devi was known as Badi Amma Saheb by all the
devotees at Sant Satramdham. She was very good looking and had a
good height and personality. Her face was always glowing with a
divine light, like of any other honest and hardworking woman.
Mata Sachet Devi was very beautiful and her voice was sweet like
honey. Mata Sachet Devi had the cure for all types of diseases in
women and children, e.g. throat problems, headaches, stomach
problems and also knew how to treat someone if he or she is bitten by poisonous insects or animals.
Mata Sachet Devi was truly a miracle worker for all.
From this we learn that doing meditation upon HIS divine name and
by getting connected to HIM helps us in living our life positively in a true sense.
