The author of Shirdi Sai Satcharita, Shri Govind Dabholkar alias Hemadpant, writes in Chapter III, page 14 of Shirdi Sai Satcharita, that he heard the following "beautiful and precious words" of Shirdi Sai Baba one day at noon, after the Arati:
"Be wherever you like, do whatever you choose, remember this well that, all what you do is known to Me. I am the Inner Ruler of all and seated in your hearts. I envelope all the creatures, the movable and immovable world. I am the Controller - the Wire-puller of the show of this universe. I am the Mother - origin of all beings - the Harmony of three Gunas, the Propeller of all senses, the Creator, Preserver and Destroyer. Nothing will harm him, who turns his attention towards Me, but Maya will lash or whip him, who forgets Me. All the insects, ants, the visible, movable and immovable world, is My body or form."
