Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please listen our humble prayers:

In all the lands may all the sufferings of living beings come to an end!
May the beaten be freed from blows!
May those who are threatened with death be restored to life!
May those who are in tribulations become free from all pain!
May those who suffer hunger and thirst receive food and drink in abundance!
May the blind see and deaf hear and women with children give birth painlessly!
May sounds of pain be nowhere heard in the Universe!

Blessed Devotee who Experienced Baba’s Miracle before 1918

Blessed Devotee who Experienced Baba's Miracle before 1918

Baba answered prayers so swiftly and saved His devotee


"I may be here in My physical body, and you may be far away beyond the seven seas. Yet, whatever you do there I know instantly. Wherever you may be, when you spread your hands before Me in supplication with faith and devotion, there I stand behind you day and night, as steadfast as your faith and devotion is," said Baba to Cholkar (Sai Satcharitra Ch.15).


Baba's words are true for each and every bhakta (devotee) even now; as they were then. This is such a Leela where Baba literally went beyond the seven seas to rescue a bhakta.


It was during World War I; Capt. Jahanghir F. Daruwala was at sea, with his fleet of ships. To his utter dismay he realized that all but three of his ships were hit by the enemy and were sinking fast. Soon these three ships with the passengers, and himself would meet the same fate. Being a good Captain he hoped to ferry the remaining ships to safety.


He had Baba's photograph in his pocket. He promptly took it out and earnestly prayed to Baba to come to their rescue. Just as he has praying, Baba sit­ting in the Dwarkamai shouted"Haq, haq". The devo­tees surrounding Baba, were astonished to see Baba completely drenched, from head to toe. The water flowed in torrents, and the Dwarkamai soon became a pool of water. The devotees simply removed buckets and buckets of water from the Dwarkamai for about an hour.  Then they gave Baba dry clothes to wear.


As Baba was silent about the cause of His being drenched, one of the devotees drank the water as tirth (holy water) and found it extremely salty. He wondered at that, but kept quiet. Simultaneously, at sea, Capt. Daruwala saw Baba in person, pull and tow his ships to safety. On the third day after this incident Baba re­ceived a telegram from the Captain, thanking Him for the rescue operation. Immediately on his return he came to Shirdi and fell at Baba's feet. He thanked Baba for answering his prayers so swiftly and saving the lives of his crew and the passengers. Capt. Daruwala was an ardent devotee and he took a great deal of interest in Baba's affairs. He donated Rs.2,200/- in two install­ments for the repair of the Sabha Mandap. As a small 'thank you gesture'

Control of Anger

Control of Anger


Baba: If anyone is angry with another, he wounds me to the quick. If any one abuses another, I feel the pain. If anyone bravely endures the abuse, I feel highly pleased. 


Baba to Jog: Give me dakshina.

Jog (flaring up): You know I have not got a single pie. How can I give, Baba'?

Baba: Do not give, but why do you lose your temper? 



Baba to R B Purandhare: If anybody comes and abuses you or punishes you, do not quarrel with him. If you cannot endure it, speak a simple word or two, or else leave the place. But, do not battle with him and give tit for tat. I feel sick and disgusted when you quarrel with others. 


Mrs. Pradhan 

Baba to Mrs. MW Pradhan: If anyone talks ten words at us, let us answer with one word, if we reply at all. Do not battle with anyone. 


Baba's Control of Anger 

When Baba was in a towering rage, Uddhavesa Bua came, prostrated and asked for leave; Baba, cooling down, spoke tenderly to him.-Are you going? When will you come? You need not come again and again every fifteen days. I am with you. Well, go. 

When Baba was in towering passion, Samant, Police Sub-Inspector stood at a distance and thought that unless Baba gave him leave immediately, he would, be too late for his train and have to meet official trouble. 

Baba, at once: Tell all those who want to go, to come at once and take their Udhi.

Guruvaar Prarthna

Guruvaar Prarthna



Our Beloved Sadguru Sainath, please accept our humble prayers on this Holy Day of Guruvaar. Baba, we all want to be innovative, intelligent, incredible and extraordinary. Baba, what for we need all these things, just to elevate our ego and show our pride to the world. No, by having all these, we don't want to enter into the clutches of maya and slip away from your path. Baba, we don't ask anything from you, but you know our eligibility and capability, accordingly bless us whatever require for a peaceful life. Baba, on this holy day we start our prayers by reading your divine words in Shri Sai Samartha Satcharita.



Once, Baba appeared in a dream of a Punjabi Brahmin, whose name was Ramlal and who was a resident of Bombay.


The sky, the wind, the sun, the rain and other deities – due to the power of their grace, whatever knowledge one has of outward and inward objects, that are known as the waking state.


When all the senses are at rest, arises the awakening of the subliminal impressions of the waking condition. This takes the form of cognition and the person who cognizes. This is the indication of the dream state.


His dream was strange. He did not know Baba's form or attributes. He had never had darshan earlier. "Come to me", he said.


From his appearance, the person looked like a great saint, but who was he and from where? When Ramlal awoke he was deep in thoughts.


He felt like going, but he did not have an address or his whereabouts. But he who calls for darshan, he alone knows to make the arrangements.


Then, that same afternoon as he was casually walking along the road, he saw a picture in a shop which startled him.


The form that he saw in his dream was exactly the same as this, felt Ramlal. He immediately made inquiries of the shopkeeper.


He closely looked at the picture. "Who is he and from where?" He learnt that it was Sai from Shirdi. Ramlal was satisfied.


Later, he came to know the full details. Ramlal went to Shirdi and stayed near Baba, till his Mahasamadhi.


This was Baba's wish – to fulfill the desires of his devotees, by bringing them for darshan and letting them achieve their worldly or spiritual objectives.


As it is, all his devotees were fulfilled. He himself was desireless, unselfish, without ego, and without any attachment. His avatar was only to fulfill the desires of the devotees.


Know him to be a true saint – who is untouched by anger, and has no place for hatred, nor does he have even a glance for the selfish;


whose selfless love for all is his mission and who does not waste even a word on matters other than righteousness.


In conclusion, Baba has got his life story written by holding my hand so that the devotees remain continuously engrossed in remembering him. This is its purpose.


Therefore Hemad very humbly always requests the listeners, to hear the Sai Satcharita with faith and devotion.


You will attain peace thereby and it will help in getting rid of evil habits. Devotion at Sai's feet will be strengthened and it will give salvation.

1.     After bathing in the sacred Godavary and after taking the darshan of the Samadhi in the Samadhi Mandir at Shirdi, you should read or hear the Satcharitra. If you do this all your threefold afflictions will vanish.


2.    Casually thinking of about the stories of Sai, you will get interested in spiritual life, and if you go through it with love and reverence, all your sins will be destroyed.


3.    If you wish to get rid of the cycle of birth and deaths, read Sai stories and remember Him always, and get yourself devoted to His Feet.


4.    If you dive into the sea of Sai's stories, and then give them out to others, you will get an ever-new flavour of them and save the hearers from future misery.


5.    If you go on meditating on Sai's Form, it will, in course of time, lead you into self-realization.


6.    It is very hard to know or realize the nature of Self of Brahma; but if you approach through the Sagun Brahma (Sai's Form) your progress will be easy.


7.    If the devotee completely surrenders himself to Him, he will loose his individual ego and be merged in Him and be one with him, as the river becomes cone with the sea.


8.    If you thus become merged with Him in any of the three states, viz., waking, dream and sleep, you get rid of the bond of Samsar.


9.    If anybody, after bathing, reads this with love and faith, and completes it within a week, his calamities will disappear.


10. If he hears or reads it daily and regularly, all his dangers will be warded off.


11.  He will get the reward according to his faith and devotion.


12. If you read this with reverence Sai will be pleased, and by removing your ignorance and poverty, will give you knowledge, wealth and prosperity.


13. With concentrated mind, if you read a chapter daily, it will give you unbounded happiness.


14. One, who has his own welfare at heart, should study it carefully and then, he will ever remember Sai gratefully and joyfully in birth after birth. 


15. By its study, the diseased and sick will get health, the poor wealth, the mean and afflicted the prosperity, and the mind will get rid of all futile and get steadiness.

Ghanashyama Sundara Shridhara 

Ghanashyama sundara shridhara arunoday zhala
Uthi lavkari vanmali udayachali mitra aala


Anand kanda prabhat zhali uthi sarali raati

Saayankali ekemeli dwijagan avghe vrukshi
Arunoday hotachi udaale charavaya pakshi
Prabhaat kaali uthuni kavadi teerth path lakshi
Karuni sada sammarjan gopi kumbh gheuni kukshi
Yamuna jalasi jaati mukunda dadhyo dhan bhakshi

Ghanashyama sundara shridhara arunoday zhala
Uthi lavkari vanmali udayachali mitra aala
