Greatness of Sai baba’s Samadhi Mandhir in Shirdi

How beautiful it would have been if we were one of the devotees of Sai baba when Saibaba really lived in Shirdi back in early 19th century. How beautiful it would have been if we have really seen how the Buti wada ( the present samadhi mandhir ) was build.

What if we were present when Shirdi Sai Baba spoke about his wish to stay in the Wada . In many instances saibaba told his devotees both about his time nearing to take samadhi and also his wish to be placed in Buti wada.

Tulasi garden – the scent of Tulasi is still there in the deep surface below the samadhi mandhir

In sai satcharitra we have read a incident that Sai baba loves to grow Tulasi plant ( sacred holy basil ) in lendi baugh and also in the place where present samadhi mandhir exists.

I always believe saibaba knows whats going to happen after few decands that in this same Holy land is going to be his Samadhi mandhir where millions and millions of sai devotees come in line line ants coming towards sugar.

In hinduism we all know the greatness of Tulasi plant. Keeping a Tulasi plant in house is very auspicious and blesses us with purity , good health and prosperity. Sai baba wanted to make this Land of Shirdi holy by growing tulasi plants. We also have read about a devotee who supplied 2 mud pots for saibaba to water these tulasi plants. Every inch of the land around shirdi is touched by our Sai baba.

Saibaba has worked hard to take care of his sweet holy Tulasi garden. Sai knows years later his devotees not only has to feel his presence in samadhi but also feel the holiness of the land. The Land which carries Buti wada, the present Samadhi mandhir in shirdi

Saibabas words about his samadhi and Samadhi mandhir  :

1. When Buti and other devotees came to saibaba asking for approval to build the wada, Sai baba said ‘ Yes build the wada, we will play there happily after its build”

This is a indirect assurance from saibaba that soon his samadhi will take place and his devotees who sai considers as his own children will come to see him there .

For us its Great Darshan of Shirdi Sai baba and for Saibaba its a play he has with his sweet children. I feel every time we go to samadhi mandhir in shirdi, Saibaba is happy to see us and plays with us since we are his children

2.One of the sai devotee got a dream the day before saibabas samadhir. In the dream saibaba asked him to send all the money in the box he saves money and also a yellow cloth to be offered.

The devotee got up in the morning and wondered what saibaba means to convey. Soon he got news about saibabas samadhi and sent the money which is used for expenses.

3. Saibaba used to say his sweet devotee tarkad like this

Bhai , you think we are alone now with no one to come to us but one day people will come here line ants comes in search of sugar.

The same thing is happening today friends. How many thousands of people go to shirdi and the first thing they want is to have darshan in Samadhi mandhir.  There are sai devotees who come as far as 1000 miles, there are some who come from far away countries …All of them have one goal. To see the God in his Samadhi.

The powerful vibrant  Sai baba statue in samadhi mandhir

Thousands of sai devotees love the sai baba statue in samadhi mandhir. It was kept in the year 1954 and many of his close devotees like Lakshmi bai had tears in her eyes saying the statue resembles exactly how saibaba used to look .

I can write many instances where saibaba has spoken about his wish to stay in Buti wada ( His samadhi ) .

One beautiful incident is here..

When the buti wada was just about to be built there was a Neem tree branches which was protruding and was a Hindrance to construct the building. Since Neem tree is important for sai baba , with fear in mind, the devotees asked saibaba what to do.

Sai baba immediately said ”

Cut it off.

The message sent here by saibaba is that , when we do something good in life, its ok to neglect few things. Lets say one of your friend is causing problem for a good deed you do, Its ok to keep away from such a person than to leave the good deed you intend to do.

With this message i shall promise to write more about the greatness of Saibabas samadhi mandhir in Shirdi

All of you sweet sai devotees who go to shirdi, please be aware that there are all types of devotees coming to shirdi. Not all will be devoted like you. So try to take care of your devotion. Never get distracted. Focus only on Saibaba and not on the others .

Keep chanting any small mantra of saibaba while you stand in the que. Keep remembering saibaba called you and you came to shirdi and saibaba loves when you maintain peace and patience.

Keep chanting sai sai sai

Saibaba loves you and will call you for a happy samadhi mandhir darshan someday

Om sri sainathaya namaha

  • Once my mom asked me for Shiridi but i had no experience to go on outside trip without my brother but i tried my level and collected ticket on tatkal through my old colleage Ms.Priyatama Mohanty, Stenographer, OMFED and went with mother,father,brother(mentally not fit), sister(Inter costaccountant) and myself on 3/01/2013 at 7 a.m through Lokmanya Tilak and reached at Manmad next day at 9 a.m almost then one driver came to us and asked for Shiridi and i agreed at Rs.825/- (from Manmad to Shiridi) he was so nice driver and reached at a Hotel Sri Sai Mayuri Residency and got room of 5 beds @Rs.900/- per day and stayed for 4 days there. Went to Trambekeswar on Monday though my mother was not feeling good as she was joint pains. Though we completed swiftly our journey any how. Before leaving shiridi i tried atleast my mom once visit Sai Mandir and i got success by bringing a wheelchair and one person meet there because i was feeling pain during taking my mom to mandir.

  • dear friends,
    Jai sai ram,

    baba aap har sukh dukh me mere sath rahe
    mere aur mare pariwar ke sar par hamesha aap ka hath rahe.
    aap ka ashirwad hamare upar sada bana rahe.
    mere mukh pe sada aap ka nam rahe.
    apne kripa aap you hi banaye rakhna.

  • BABA,
