Shirdi Pilgrimage Tours
Shirdi Pilgrimage Tours :
According to Shirdi history, Shirdi Sai Baba has his origin during the Bhakti cult when Gyaneshwar, Jnaneshwari, Sopana, Muktabai, Namdeva, Eknatha and Tukaram were great Maharashtrian saints. Shirdi Sai Baba was born in Marathwada.
During the 18th century a young bearded man took shelter in a mosque in Shirdi village. People of the village offered him food which at times he shared with animals. Shirdi history tells that Shri Sai baba used simple language to express and had special power to solve problems of poor needy and destitute. Gradually the village became a centre of pilgrimage. People realised that Baba had an extraordinary powers. He preached the principle of love and faith in humanity to all his disciples. He believed in uniformity of religion and always sent back needy and poor people happy. Shirdi history informs that the Baba left his body on his own will on 15th October 1918. His body was laid in the Samadhi Mandir. His most concise message to the world was why fear when I am here. He lived in Dwarkamayi. There are a large number of instances in which shirdi sai baba has been appearing before his devotees even so many years after his passing out of the physical body. Shirdi history is not history for his believers.
