Baba Says

Shirdi Sai Baba, (c. 1838? – 15 October 1918) was an Indian Saint. Shirdi is famously known as Sai Nagar. The home of the late 19th century saint Shri Sai Baba. The Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust located in Shirdi is one of the richest temple organisations. One of the most famous pilgrim centres of India, Shirdi is where Sai Baba, the saint known for his divine powers, lived and preached for over five decades.

About Sai Baba - Shirdi Sai Baba, was an Indian spiritual master and fakir, considered to be a saint. The name Sai was given to him by the temple priest Mahalsapati when he returned to Shirdi in 1858. The word Sai refers to a religious mendicant but can also mean God. Sai Baba condemned discrimination based on religion or caste. His teachings concentrated on a moral code of love, forgiveness, helping others, charity, contentment, inner peace, and devotion to God and Guru.

He instructed his devotees and followers to lead a moral life, help others, love every living being without any discrimination, and develop two important features of character: faith (Shraddha) and patience (Saburi).

God has incarnated as Sai Baba to help his devotees and spread two important things in everybody's life Shraddha and Saburi (Faith and Patience). When there is wholehearted faith and surrender yourself completely to him, he will fulfill all your wishes by removing all shackles and keeping us away from sense-objects to make us quite indifferent to pleasures and pains, leading us on the spiritual path. In many of our poojas to Sai Baba, he gave his darshan to us in different forms, and he has been blessing us. We felt, “Is it so easy to see Sai “ but only if we surrendered completely to him. Such a kind hearted Sai was, and one of his devotees, Dasganu described him as Tu Malayagiri Chandana! Meaning you are the sandalwood from Malaygiri. Whenever you call Sairam wholeheartedly with true devotion, he will appear immediately in some form to answer all your prayers. He showers abundant motherly love more than a mother. We want to share this with everybody, and that made us develop the Sri Saikalpa Trust. As one of the initiatives, Sri Saikalpa Trust developed a book called “Sri Saikalpa” to reach all the devotees. The book was launched on Vijaydasami Day in 2012 And distributed Saikalpa books to many temples across the world .

Shirdi Sai Baba, also known as Sai Baba of Shirdi, is a revered spiritual figure who lived in the town of Shirdi in Maharashtra, India. His life history is steeped in legend and devotion, and he is considered as one of the most beloved saints of modern India.

It is believed that Sai Baba was born around the year 1838, although the exact date and place of his birth are uncertain. His birth name and parentage remain unknown, adding to the mystique surrounding his life. Some accounts suggest that he was born to Hindu parents and later adopted and raised by a Muslim couple in a village called Pathri.

Sai Baba arrived in Shirdi as a young man, possibly in his late teens or early twenties, and initially settled in a dilapidated mosque known as the Dwarkamai. He was known for his ascetic lifestyle, wearing a simple robe and possessing few material possessions. Sai Baba spent much of his time meditating, engaging in selfless service, and teaching spiritual principles to those who sought his guidance. During his time in Shirdi, Sai Baba performed numerous miracles that earned him a devoted following. He was said to have the ability to heal the sick, alleviate suffering, and fulfill the needs of his devotees.

Sai Baba's teachings encompassed elements from both Hinduism and Islam, emphasizing the unity of all religions and the importance of self-realization. He advocated the practice of love, compassion, and selfless service as pathways to spiritual growth. Sai Baba often used simple parables and stories to convey profound spiritual truths, making his teachings accessible to people from all walks of life. Although Sai Baba did not establish a formal organization or initiate disciples in the traditional sense, he had a group of close devotees who became instrumental in spreading his teachings after his passing. One of his most prominent disciples was Mahalsapati, a priest from the Khandoba Temple in Shirdi, who recognized Sai Baba's spiritual greatness and played a vital role in his life.

Sai Baba's fame continued to grow, and people from different parts of India and beyond flocked to Shirdi to seek his blessings. He embraced people from all castes, religions, and social backgrounds, and his message of unity and universal love resonated deeply with his followers. On October 15, 1918, Sai Baba left his physical body, known as mahasamadhi, leaving behind a legacy that would endure for generations. His samadhi, a shrine built over his burial site, became a place of pilgrimage and devotion for millions of devotees.

    Once at our home I preformed Parayana of Satchaitra puja for 49 days. You will not believe that almost every day I have come across miracles. One of them I would like to share with you all. One of the Sai devotee came to my home hearing that I was preforming puja and he told me that he is suffering from all sides and do not know how to handle. I told him to pray Sai Baba and think of number between 1 to 720. The number what came in his mind referred to that he promised to offer but he never did hence the suffering.He tried to recollect what that was and after few hours he recollected that he had prayed to Baba that he will offer some portion of his income but he forgot to do. He immediately fulfilled his commitment to Baba and all his problems got solved and his life changed with Baba’s blessing.You should have Shraddha and Saburi and definitively Baba will help you.

    Me and my friends where doing parayanam of Sai Satcharitra , doing Aartis ,putting Naivedhyam and etc. for 7 weeks. One day I was very tired at end of the day after completing all poojas. I saw the thread in the Deepam was almost very small, so I replaced it with a new one. I kept the old thread in a small agul vilakku (mud vilakku), within few seconds the deepam started lifting to 5 cm approx. in a mango shape with a dark object in the centre. Then slowly Baba’s image came up in the centre with a smile. We three were given a wonderful dharshan of Baba. My eyes was filled with tears…….

    Dear Sai Bandhu,
    We have been reading and hearing many extraordinary leelas & miracles of our beloved SAI. Even if the posted one is known to you, the beauty of Sai Leelas is everytime it is new to us and we see new meaning in this. Such is the same with SAI SATCHARITA. Now experience this and you will realize again that SAI is powerful and your love for him will increase manifold. Sasikanth Ratwe was a devotee of Lord Dattatreya. In his dream a fakir appeared and showed him around Shirdi. He asked the fakir when he will visit Shirdi. The Fakir replied that on 19th September 1964 @ 4 PM he will enter his Durbar and he will also see the same clothes worn by the Fakir on the day of darshan. Ratwe forgot about the dream.Since some one in Pune told that Sai is a Muslim he did not respect BABA.During his search for a employment he reached Kopergaon and came to know that his employer was an ardent devotee of Saii and has been to Shirdi. Ratwe thought he will not get the job since he is not a devotee of Sai.Since he was left with ample time he thought of going to Shirdi.Ratwe entered Samadhi Mandir the clock showed it is 4 PM. The date 19-9-1964 On the Moorthy/Statue of Sri Sai, the same dress he visioned and as told by BABA in his dream was adorned. SAINATH MAHARAJ KI JAI. SAI appeared in Ratwe dream in September 1953 and told him that he will visit Shirdi 0n19-9-1964 at 4 pm It happened including the DRess. Note that Sri Sai Moorthy/Statue was installed in Samadhi Mandhir on 7-10-1954 One year before the Statue was installed Sai appeared in the dream of Ratwe. Sri Sai knew that his Statue will be installed and the same will be draped with the dress he showed to Ratwe in his dream. You can infere from this that how POWERFUL is our beloved SAI.
