Book Description

Back of the Book:

Sai Baba of Shirdi is a phenomenon. In all of India's history, there has never been another like him. He is not a conventional saint. He wrote no critique of Bhagvad Gita or the Upanishads or any other holy work. He made no pretensions to scholarship yet he had a profound insight into both Hindu and Islamic scriptures. He founded no ashram or peetham, wrote no tome, initiated no disciple to take over from him. He performed 'miracles' but in no manner of means to impress anyone, devotee or otherwise. Sai Baba in every way remains unique.

Born about twenty years before the 'Sepoys' mutiny in the last century in Marathwada, the home of medieval saints of Maharashtra, he came in his late twenties to Shirdi, an insignificant hamlet in Ahmednagar District and spent fifty years of his remaining life there until his mahasamadhi. Shirdi is no longer an obscure village. To-day it is a center of pilgrimage for lakhs of Sai Baba's devotees.

This book is a complete account of his life and mission.
