Saikalpa accolades Sai Sevaks of the 20th Century

A true life is defined by service and sacrifice.Seva to Guru is the most important component of any spiritual practice. In Bhakti and karma marg, Seva is seen as one of the greatest acts of dharma and selflessness that aims to protect and aid people.

Some of Sai Baba's notable devotees helped to establish Shirdi as a Sansthan and a place of pilgrimage during the 19th century, notably Mahalsapathi, Madhav Rao (Shama), Nanasaheb Peshway, Bayijabai, Tatya Kote Patil, Kakasaheb Dixit, Radhakrishna Maai, Hemadpant, Bhuti, Das Ganu, Lakshmi Bai, Nanavali, Upasni Maharaj, Abdul Baba, Sapatanekar, Nanasaheb Chandodkar, B.V. Narashima Swamiji.Every time we perform Sai Sacharitra parayana, we think of the devotees who lived alongside Sai and their contributions to society.

In the same way, renowned devotees in the 20th century are devoting their life to propagating Sai's teachings, which is assisting numerous needy individuals who are finding it difficult to manage their lives to believe in Bhaktimarg.They are adopting Shradha and Saburi to guide the devotees to attain spiritiualism.

We want all Sai Baba devotees to be aware of the great Sai Baba devotees who are performing Sai Seva for Shirdi Sai Baba, disseminating his teachings, and assisting many confused and dissatisfied lives to become spiritual like the saying of Kabir in Hemandpant's Sai Sacharitra.

"I am weeping because I feel the agony of being crushed in this wheel of worldly existence like the corn in the hand-mill," Kabir exclaimed to his Guru, Nipathiranjana, after observing a woman grinding corn. Do not be scared; cling tightly to the mill's handle of understanding, as I do; stay close to it; and turn inward to its center and you are sure to be saved.

Bow to Sri Sai and wish everyone peace.
