Shirdi Sai Baba
An epitome of love and compassion with devotees all over the globe, Shirdi’s Sai Baba is a symbol of greatness and spirituality, in it’s purest form.
Born in India in the late 19th century, Sai Baba arrived at the village of Shirdi in the Ahmednagar District of Maharashtra, British India (Source: Wikipedia), when he was about 16 years old. He slowly came into prominence, when the villagers in that region were enamored by this young boy who practiced such hard penance, and yet remained unperturbed by extreme weather conditions.
It was his unbelievable inner strength and the ability to not fall prey to distractions of any kind, which made them recognize the saint that dwelled within him.
His devotees are not just restricted to Hindus and he is revered by Muslims, Christians and Zoroastrians alike. Every year thousands of devotees throng to
Shirdi (a small village based in Nashik city of stage Maharashtra in India) to seek Baba’s blessings and to catch a glimpse of his holy presence.
