Have you been searching for answers to a problem you have been facing recently?
Ask Sai Baba. Shirdi Sai Baba answers questions you may have.
Hindu and Muslim devotees are not the only ones who can benefit from Shirdi Sai Baba's guidance and blessings. Sai Baba's spirit is there for all those who reach out to him.
He is a spiritual healer as well as a miracle worker. His power is limitless. You will never know unless you ask.
Shirdi Sai Baba- "Tell me the reason for your worries. I am here and ready to listen?"
During his earth stay, Shirdi Sai Baba was known to possess extraordinary spiritual gifts. He was an Indian spiritual master, leader, healer and teacher who performed many miracles.
Although it is not known if he was Hindu or Muslim, he was loved by both his Hindu and Muslim devotees. Sai Baba saw everyone equal in his eyes.
He displayed qualities of meekness, humility, and lack of ego. His name Sai Baba means sai-holy person and baba- father.
There is no factual information about his early years. Actually, his early years are a mystery. And, whatever is on hand is only speculative.
Where did he come from? Why did he appear in Shirdi? Is he Muslim or Hindi or perhaps something else? All these questions are blowing in the wind.
The only information available about him is that -
1-He arrived in Shirdi, India, at the age of sixteen.
2-He was seen sitting under a Neem tree in the village of Shirdi.
3-He possessed astonishing abilities.
4-He passed away in 1918.
According to H.S. Ganguly, in his book, Sai Baba of Shirdi, the people of Shirdi first noticed him while he was sitting under a neem tree.
Below are some miraculous acts performed by Sai Baba.
In her book A Healer's Journey, Sree Chakravarti describes how the people of Shirdi recognized Sai Baba's supreme greatness. It was while a few shepherd boys were playing near the neem tree where he was sitting.
A full-grown cobra appeared, "making a beeline for one of the boys...before the cobra could strike," he "gently upbraided the snake" and asked it why he wanted to hurt the child?
"The snake stopped in its tracks, glided to Sai Baba, dipped its hood in homage at his feet, and then slid away."
When the villagers became aware of this miracle, he was greatly admired.
His divine greatness also became even more apparent when a man named Yad Patil lost his beloved black horse.
Yad Patil and his men searched everywhere, but to no avail. They entered the village of Shirdi, hoping to attain some information, but no one had seen the horse.
Unexpectedly, Sai Baba approached Yad Patil and assured him that he would get his horse back. As he raised his right hand to bless Yad Patil, "people heard the sound of a galloping horse." To everyone's amazement, the horse appeared standing near Yad Patil.
After witnessing this miraculous event, the people of Shirdi became intrigued by his supernatural spiritual gift.
Additionally, he healed the sick with vibhuti or udhi (holy ash).
In H.S.Ganguly's book, he depicts a case where a distressed man went to him for help.
The man's wife, the caretaker of his blind mother and lame sister, became extremely ill. Fearing that his wife would die, he ran to see the Divine Baba.
Sai Baba gave him three packets of vibhuti-one for each of his family members.
When he arrived home, he placed the vibhuti from one packet on his mother's eyes, gave the second packet to his sister with instructions on what to do, and poured the vibhuti of the third packet into his wife's mouth.
He was astonished that his mother was seeing, his sister was walking, and his wife had recovered fully.

"For Those Who Believe, No Words Are Necessary; For Those Who Do Not Believe, No Words Are Possible"..........Franz Werfel
While visiting Shirdi Sai Baba temple in India , I had a profound spiritual vision. It all occurred while meditating in Samadhi Mandir (Sai Baba's Shrine Temple).
I had sat down on the floor- away from the crowd, and closed my eyes. What transpired soon afterward was a blessing from heaven.
I saw, through my third eye, what appeared to be the image of Sai Baba dressed in a white glowing garment. By his side, were two angels. A radiant white light encircled him as well as the angels.
He approached me, took my hands and blessed me. Immediately, I felt a warm loving sensation spreading all over my being. Then, he proceeded to bless everyone in the room.
As he turned around to leave, I noticed he was taking with him a grayish mist, which symbolized the negativity we were carrying.
He was taking away the darkness from our souls and filling it with love and light. In other words, he was lessening our burdens.
His image began to fade away slowly until it was no longer visible. It was a pure bliss experience.
It is said that Sai Baba promised, “I shall be active and vigorous even from the tomb.” Without a doubt, he has kept his promise.
Sai Baba is present in the hearts of those who believe in him. He guides us into the path of light, and protects us from harm.
During my visit to Shirdi Sai Baba temple, a short and simple spiritual prayer came to my mind.
SaiBaba, open up my heart and my mind so that I can see and feel God's light.
The key to this prayer or any other prayer is to say it with immense faith and love. The person saying this prayer must repeat the words three times. When referring to the heart, the person's hand should be placed on the heart area; the hand should go over the forehead when referring to the mind.
To receive blessings, you need to have complete trust and faith in the Divine and surrender completely.
While sitting in my living room, having a quiet moment, I suddenly thought of Shirdi Sai Baba.
The sunlight was streaming in through the windows, creating a beautiful scene.
I decided to capture the moment with my camera and later discovered a stunning image of what appeared to be a side view face of Sai Baba.
It may be unclear to you, but I can clearly see his face in the upper middle part of the photo.
I suppose it's true what they say about Shirdi Sai Baba - if you summon him with good intentions and a pure heart, he will visit you.
-You may go anywhere in the world, and there I go with you. My abode is your heart; I dwell within you.
-I am ever living to help and guide all who come to me, who surrender to me and who seek refuge in me.
-If you cast your burden on me, I shall surely bear it
-Whatever creature comes to you, human or otherwise, treat it with consideration.
-God is not so far away. He is not in the heavens above, nor in hell below. He is always near you.
-All gods are one. There is no difference between a Hindu and a Muslim. Mosque and temple are the same.
-See the divine in the human being.
- Other people's acts will affect just them. It is only your own deeds that will affect you.
-If one devotes their entire time to me and rests in me, need fear nothing for body and soul. If one sees me and me alone and listens to my Leelas and is devoted to me alone, they will reach God.
-I'd become a slave to the people that hunger for me. It's just within the deep silence where God can speak.
-Life has challenges, take them on.
-This body is just my house.
-Get on with your worldly activities cheerfully, but do not forget God.
-Put full faith in God's providence.
-Do not be idle: work, utter God's name and read the scriptures.
-"Sabka Malik Ek" (one GOD govern all).
