Sai Baba of Shirdi

There are many Saints, who leaving their houses, stay in forests, caves or hermitages and remaining in solitude, try to get liberation or salvation for themselves. They do not care for other people, and, are always self-absorbed.

Sai Baba of Shirdi was not of such a type.

He had no home, no wife, no progeny, nor any relations, near or distant. Still, He lived in the world (society).

He begged His bread from four or five houses, always lived at the foot of the Neem tree, carried on worldly dealings, and taught all the people how to act, and behave in this world.

Rare are the Sadhus and Saints who, after attaining God-Vision, strive for the welfare of the people.

Sai Baba was the foremost of these, and, therefore, says Hemadpant – ” Blessed is the country, Blessed is the family, and Blessed are the chaste parents where This Extra-Ordinary, Transcendent, Precious and Pure Jewel (Sai Baba) was born ”
