Parayan is reading of a sacred or holy book in a set number of days. Mostly Sapthah completing the reading of book in a week is done. More or less period of time can also be devoted. Normally books are source of information. When ever we need any information, books has been and is a very reliable source. Though today another alternative internet is also used much for gathering or obtaining information.

If the complete book is read in one weeks time it is said to fulfill the desire of the reader. These can be: 1. Getting some wish or desire being fulfilled by Sai Maharaj. Treatment of ailment, health issue, progeny or related problem.
Seeking grace of Baba in removing the Problem or worries which are surrounding the bhakta. For employment, interview and job. Financial, material, emotional, family and relationship related issues. Out of love and devotion to Sadguru Sainath 8. For grace of Guru in attaining salvation, success in path of self-realization, spiritual upliftment. To overcome pride, egoism, control over worldly objects and sensations.
For betterment in life, peace and happiness. The above list is not exhaustive but only indicative. Parayan can fulfill any wish the devotee desires. He is capable of seeing the worth of devotee, his motive, his devotion, His faith and His past, present —future. Just mere reading of the holy book with intention of getting desired result may not be blessed by Baba.
Not only this, sometime even after reading the result is not achieved, in this case devotees should not be disheartened. Baba is the ultimate doer and what He shall bless shall be the best for the devotee.
Parayan Procedure: Dear devotees there is no hard and fast rule in following these procedure. All Baba want is love and he did not believe in outward rituals.
If the devotees have firm faith in Baba, parayan shall have its result. Devotees who wish to do weekly Parayan Saptah complete the full book Sri Sai Satcharitra in 7 days should start reading the book from Thursday.
If the devotees do not have a puja room, say for example devotees living in hostels, they can sit in a neat place, where there is no disturbance, and start their parayan.
Hence there is no hard and fast rule to follow. Sai Satcharitra has total 52 chapters which can be divided into 7 chapters as per to 7 days and can be read by devotees as per to their convenience i. This purely depends on devotees how they wish to read these chapters in a day. The prefered method is mentioned below..
The chapters are divided in the following manner for ease of reading and completing in time as mentioned in Satcharitra. Every day some Prasad or navadiya should be offered to Baba like any fruit, dry fruit, sugar candy, raisins etc as per to convenience of the devotee. There is no hard and fast rule again. By Wednesday evening Sai Satcharitra will complete. After the completion of Sai Satcharitra Prasad offering or Dakshina should be offered to Baba either in home temple or in Sai temple near to their home where they can go.
If they cannot go than they can prepare anything at home or get readymade sweat dish and offer to Baba seeking his blessing for the parayan.
Here again I would like to mention that it is not necessary if you cannot go or offer than, simple Pranam at Lotus feet of Baba shall also do, being in your own place. What ever the devotees eat can be offered as food, it can be veg or non veg food.
The last chapter epilogue in Sai Satcharitra which gives complete detail about result of Sai Satcharitra Parayan, I am attaching here. Devotee shall read this chapter in their Sai Satcharitra Book when they complete the book on the last day.
I am giving this particular last chapter here so that readers can know the importance of Reading Sai Satcharitra and doing its parayan. Greatness of Sadguru Sai and reward of reading Sai Satcharitra We prostrate ourselves before and take refuge in that Sai Samarth Who besets all animate and inanimate things in the universe-from a post to God Brahma, pots, houses, mansions and even sky, Who pervades all creatures equally without any differentiation, to Whom all devotees are alike; and Who knows not honor and dishonors, like or dislike.
If we remember Him and surrender to Him, He fulfills all our desires and makes us attain the goal of life. This ocean of mundane existence is very hard to cross. Waves of infatuation beat high there against the bank of bad thoughts and break down trees of fortitude. The breeze of egoism blows forcibly and makes the ocean rough and agitated.
Crocodiles in the form of anger and hatred move there fearlessly. Eddies in the form of the idea "I and Mine" and other doubts whirl there incessantly and innumerable fishes in the form of censure, hate and jealousy play there, Though this ocean is so fierce and terrible, Sad-guru Sai is its Agasti Destroyer and the devotees of Sai have not the least to fear of it.
Our Sadguru is the boat, which will safety take us across this ocean. Prayer Now we fall flat before Sai Baba and holding His Feet make the following prayer for the public:- Let not our mind wander and desire anything except Thee. Let this work Satcharita be in every house and let it be studied daily.
Ward off the calamities of those who study it regularly. After bathing in the sacred Godavari and after taking the darshan of the Samadhi in the Samadhi-mandir in Shirdi, you should read or hear the Satcharita. If you do this all your threefold afflictions will vanish.
Casually thinking about the stories of Sai, you will get unconsciously interested in spiritual life and if you then go on through the work with love, all your sins will be destroyed.
If the devotee completely surrenders himself to Him, he will lose his individuality and be merged in Him and be one with Him, as the river in the sea. If you thus become merged with Him in any of the three states, viz. If anybody after bathing reads this with love and faith, and completes it within a week, his calamities will disappear; or if he hears or reads it daily and regularly all his dangers will be warded off.
By its study, a man wishing for wealth will get it and a pure trader, success in his life. He will get the reward according to his faith and devotion.
Without these, there will be no experience of any kind. If you read this respectfully, Sai will be pleased, and removing you ignorance and poverty, He will give you knowledge, wealth and prosperity. With concentrated mind, if you read a Chapter daily, it will give you unbounded happiness. One, who has his welfare at heart, should study it carefully and then he will ever remember Sai gratefully and joyfully in birth after birth.
By its study, the diseased and sick will get health, the poor wealth, the mean and afflicted prosperity, and the mind will get rid of all ideas and get steadiness. Dear good and devoted readers and listeners, we also make our bow to you all, and make you a special request. Never forget Him whose stories you have read day by day or month by month.
The more fervently you read or listen to these stories, the more encouragement Sai gives us to serve you and be of use to you. Both the author and the readers must co-operate in this work, help each other and be happy. May His Form be ever fixed in their eyes and may they see Sai the Lord in all beings.
