After Tirumala-Tirupati, Shirdi is the most visited pilgrim place in India today. From a small hamlet, just a little over a hundred years ago, it has grown to a huge centre of pilgrimage. The saint who put Shirdi on the world map is Sai Baba.
Sai Baba had no formal name, no family to which his origins could be traced and no lineage to which he can be ascribed. He left no Order, no direct disciples or dogma and has no incarnation. Most importantly, he also did not limit himself to either of the two predominant religions of the times, Hinduism and Islam.
Baba never made any claims to teaching or preaching anything in particular. This is why there is no structure siddhant, or course, on Baba’s teachings and faith. More and more people are attracted to him because of the very simplicity of his faith. His philosophy is above mantras, vratas, poojas and rituals. All he desires is that we offer our hearts, mind and ego to him. Then the five senses will lose their power over us and we will be able to progress spiritually and away from the world’s miseries. Shirdi is a pure bhoomi where God, in the form of Sai Baba, manifested himself, stayed and showed his leelas. Sai Baba is thus, Unique.
ETERNAL INDIA SERIES
The cultural expression of India is as varied in style as it is in form and this is due partly to the size of the land, its myriad religions, races, beliefs, customs and its many layered history.
The series combines pieces of this splendid mosaic with an eye on the apparent as well as the hidden nuances; on tradition and continuity as well as the winds of change.
