Shri Sai Baba is revered as one of the greatest saints ever seen in India, endowed with unprecedented powers, and is worshipped as a God
incarnate. (SAI meaning Sakshaat Ishwar) - GOD THE ABSOLUTE
This mysterious Fakir first made HIS appearance in Shirdi as a youth and remained there throughout His long life. HE transformed the lives of those who met Him and continuously is doing so even after HIS
Samadhi in 1918 for those whose hearts are touched by his love and who pray and call Him at any emergency in life for his blessings.
Baba stated that His mission is to "Give Blessings"
discrimination to all, and He proves it in myriad ways by healing the sick.ing people into harmony within themselves and with each other and, above all, in effecting the spiritual evolution.
An outstanding aspect of Sai Baba is that He is beyond distinctions of religion, caste or creed. He
embodied all religions and preached the Universal religion of Love.
Devotees of all faiths find their meeting point in Sai and people from all communities and all walks of life are united by the great love and reverence Baba inspires in them. Baba had great regard for His Hindu devotees and their Gurus and He responded to their needs and permitted worship according to the Hindu and other religious rituals . At the same time His dwelling place was a Masjid (Mosque) and the name of Allah was ever on his lips. HE described himself as in Service to GOD (ALLAH) and as a soul ever
remembering ALLAH -(YAD - A - HAKKA)
People today flock Shirdi in ever-increasing numbers to pay homage to the Divine and to experience the truth of Baba's promise that He would be active in answering devotees' prayers even from his tomb.
