Sai Baba of Shirdi (Unknown – October 15, 1918),
also known as
Shirdi Sai Baba, was an Indian guru,
yogi, and fakir who is regarded by his Hindu and
Muslim devotees as a saint. Many Hindu devotees -
including Hemadpant, who wrote the famous
- consider him an incarnation of Lord
Krishna while other devotees consider him as an
incarnation of Lord Dattatreya. Many devotees
believe that he was a Satguru, an enlightened Sufi
Pir, or a Qutub. No verifiable information is
available regarding Sai Baba's birth and place of
Sai Baba's real name is unknown. The name "Sai" was
given to him upon his arrival at Shirdi, a town in
the west-Indian state of Maharashtra.
local temple priest, recognized him as a Muslim
saint and greeted him with the words 'Aayo Sai!',
meaning 'Welcome Sai!'. Sai or Sayi is a Persian
title given to Sufi saints, meaning 'poor one'.
However Sāī may also refer to the Sanskrit term "Sakshat
Eshwar" or the divine. The honorific "Baba" means
"father; grandfather; old man; sir" in Indo-Aryan
languages. Thus Sai Baba denotes "holy father",
"saintly father" or "poor old man".
Sai Baba remains a very popular saint, especially
in India, and is worshipped by people around the
world. He had no love for perishable things and his
sole concern was self-realization. He taught a moral
code of love, forgiveness, helping others, charity,
contentment, inner peace, and devotion to God and
guru. Sai Baba's teaching combined elements of
Hinduism and Islam: he gave the Hindu name
to the mosque he lived in, practiced
Hindu and Muslim rituals, taught using words and
figures that drew from both traditions, and was
buried in Shirdi. One of his well known epigrams, "Sabka
" ("One God governs all"), is associated
with Islam and Sufism. He always uttered "Allah
Malik"("God is King").
Some of Sai Baba's disciples became famous as
spiritual figures and saints, such as Mhalsapati, a
priest of the
in Shirdi, and Upasni
Maharaj. He was revered by other saints, such as
Saint Bidkar Maharaj, Saint Gangagir, Saint
Janakidas Maharaj, and Sati Godavari Mataji. Sai Baba referred to several saints as 'my
brothers', especially the disciples of Swami
Samartha of Akkalkot.
1. Attending Baba's Aarti - Miracle
On one of my solo visits to Shirdi, in the initial years, I reached Shirdi in the evening by 6 pm. Took a shower and went for Darshan. After Darshan thought of attending morning Kakad Aarti. But I was not sure about how crowded it would be. So, after dinner, I went to get to the queue for morning aarti. It was around 11 pm then, and when I entered the main hall, I saw there were about 400 people already queued up in front of me. I got disappointed as I wanted to attend the aarti from exactly the...
2. Sai Picture Miracle
As I have mentioned in my previous experiences that I used to go to Shirdi alone and have been following this since last 5 years now. Although I'm his devotee for last 13 years.
On one of my solo visits to Shirdi, I was passing by the street vendors near the temple and saw so many baba's pictures. I liked one of the picture and was keen to buy that. But I didnt buy and carried on my routine in Shirdi. I came back home.
After 3 or 4 months I went to Shirdi again and when passing by the str...
