Baba's udi is having very powerful medical powers
Greatness of Udi (ITS MIRACULOUS POWERS)
Shirdi Saibaba's Greatness of Udi
-------ITS MIRACULOUS POWERS
It is well-known that Baba took Dakshina from all, and out of the amount thus collected,
He spent a lot on charity and purchased fuel with the balance left with Him.
This fuel He threw in the Dhuni - the sacred fire, which he kept ever burning.
The ash from this fire was called Udi and it was freely distributed to the devotees
at the time of their departure from Shirdi. Udi or ash is the purest substance on
earth having tremendous powers of doing and undoing and is the result of sacrifices
offered to fire (agni) which purifies everything by destroying whatever is evil.
Performing 'Yagha' (Dhuni) is the most pious ritual recommended in the ancient
Shri Sai Baba
There is a deeper underlying significance behind Baba’s practice of
distributing Udi. Baba taught by his udi that all the visible phenomena
in the universe are as transient as the ash. Our bodies composed of wood
or matter of the five elements will fall down, become inanimate after all
their enjoyments are over, and will be reduced to ashes.
In order to remind the devotees of the fact that their bodies will be
reduced to ashes, Baba distributed Udi to them. Baba also taught by the
Udi that the Brahma is the only reality and the universe is ephemeral and
that no one in this world, be he a son, father or wife, is really ours.
We come here (in this world) alone and we have to go out alone. It was
found and is even now found out, that the Udi cured many physical and
mental maladies, but Baba wanted to din into the devotee's ears the
principles of discrimination between the Unreal and the Real,
non-attachment for the unreal, by His Udi and Dakshina.
The former (Udi) taught us discrimination and the latter (Dakshina)
taught us non-attachment. Unless we have these two things,
it is not possible for us to cross over the sea of the mundane existence.
So Baba asked for and took Dakshina, and while the devotees took leave,
He gave Udi as Prasad, besmeared some of it on the Bhaktas' foreheads
and placed his boon-conferring hand on their heads. When Baba was in
a cheerful mood, he used to sing merrily. One such song was about Udi.
The text of the Udi song was, "Oh, playful Rama, come, come, and bring
with you sacks of Udi." Baba used to sing in very clear and sweet tones.
So much about the spiritual implication of Udi. It had also its material
significance. It conferred health, prosperity, freedom from anxiety, and
many other worldly gains. So the Udi has helped us to gain both our ends -
material as well as spiritual.
