This article does not pinpoint any false guru in particular. I never know how many false gurus will emerge in the next 100 – 1000 years and let this article serve Shirdi Saibaba devotees to believe in Shirdi saibaba alone as their only Guru and not get confused by cheats who act as a messenger of baba etc.
I am forced to write this article because it hurts me whenever our Shirdi Saibaba is compared with other saints who claim to be his incarnation or whatever.
The worst part is when it comes to few such false gurus, VIPS from around the country nod their head to this false claim which hurts many millions of Shirdi Saibaba devotees like me. It’s a sin to speak and believe what’s untruth when it comes to spirituality. The command of Sainath makes me express my innermost feelings today.
I really don’t want to carry this article on StarSai.com but to me its a duty to be truthful to my Sainath as his humble servant and devotee, I have to do it
I am in a democratic nation where freedom of information gives me all rights to represent and express the feelings of my sweet Shirdi sai devotees.
For Millions of Shirdi Saibaba devotees “SAI” Means Saibaba of Shirdi :
For Millions and Millions of Shirdi Saibaba devotees around the world “Sai” means only Saibaba of Shirdi and there can never be any other saint or man who can match his sacredness, his simplicity, his care for devotees, and his unconditional love for each and every one of his devotees.
Fourth Incarnation of Lord Dattatreya – Sai Baba of Shirdi
Guru of all Gurus as he is called “Lord Dattatreya” incarnated on earth for the welfare of mankind to take them on the spiritual path and also satisfy their materialistic needs.
His first incarnation was in 13 th century in Andhra state near Vishakapatnam in a village called Pithapur
1. Shree Paadha Shree Vallabha
lived for 30 years in the 13th century – Pithapur – AP
He chose a small island called Kuruvapur to meditate and did many divine leelas . This incarnation sowed the seed for other Datta incarnations in future. He has mentioned about Sri Ragavendra Swamy, Gajanan Maharaj, Sainath , Swami Samartha, Narasimha Saraswati, etc
The sacred book Shree Paadha Shree Vallabha Charitramrutam has many spiritual secrets about all Datta incarnation.
2. Narasimha Saraswathi
13th-century incarnation – 2nd avatar of Dattatreya born as a child who could not speak for brahmin parents. Uttered sacred mantra on his 11th birthday and took sanyas. Born in Narasobwadi – Maharastra state, India and had his samadhi in Ganagapur. Even today you can have darshan of his Paadhukas and if you read Guru Charitra with devotion , surely you will be blessed with his grace. The book Guru Charitra with 53 chapters is the wonderful life story of Saint Narasimha Saraswati.
3. Manik Prabhu Maharaj
Manikya Prabhu Maharaj is a very divine soul who was born on 22 December 1817, Ladwanti, Basavakalyan, and had his samadhi on 29 November 1865. I don’t have much idea about Manik Prabhu. Will include any article in StarSai when I learn more about him.
4th avatar of Lord Dattatreya lived between 1856 to 1878 in Akkalkot near Solapur. Known to be more than 300 years old but was seen in Akkalkot only for 22 years. One of the most powerful incarnations of Dattatreya with numerous leelas. I am speaking about True leelas and not like those done by modern gurus of today.
5. Sai Baba of Shirdi
5th and the final avatar of lord Dattatreya . The most popular saint of all Datta incarnation. Came as a young lad of 16 years to shirdi village, disappeared and again came to shirdi with a marriage party and stayed in a old masjid for over 60 years untill his samadhi in 1918.
Please do not play with Lord Dattatreya and is incarnation with your false claims. We shirdi saibaba devotees know whats truth and we never bother some crazy stories. Shirdi Saibaba is the final incarnation of Dattatreya and is a great “Samardha Sadguru incarnation”. As the river’s origin can’t be traced, a true saint’s past life before they started their work of the incarnation cant be traced.
The imaginative stories said by other saints about the childhood of Shirdi Saibaba is completely false and the only noted and true record of Shirdi Saibaba is Hamadpants Sri Sai Satcharitra. Other books by Narasimha Swamiji can also be used to learn about the life of Shirdi Saibaba.
This article is the answer to VIPS, Media including newspapers, magazines and TV news mentioning that our Shirdi Saibaba had another incarnation etc. Please do what ever you want but leave us Shirdi Saibaba devotees alone. We don’t want to be part of any of your incarnation saga.
The real true Sadguru – The saint – the poor fakir who lived as simple as an ordinary man in the village of Shirdi. The old man with a turban on head wearing torn clothes. The Shirdi Saibaba who ran to keep his hand inside the fire to safeguard a blacksmiths child being burnt in a fire can never be compared to any other false modern saints ever to come on earth.
I also have never said bad about anyone here or mentioned their name but its responsibility of every Shirdi Saibaba devotees to safeguard our Gurus name from being misused or misinterpreted. In future Shirdi Saibaba devotees must unite to make sure no such false gurus are encouraged. At least not using the sacred name “SAI”. The name affectionaly kept by Mahalsapathi to our sweet fakir when he reached shirdi infront of Kandoba mandhir in shirdi Village approximately in 1856.
We all know the beautiful assurance of shirdi saibaba friends…
” I am ever living and guiding all who come to me , surrender to me and seek refuge in me”
Another assurance which is 110 % true
” I will be active from my samadhi (in Shirdi ) , My bones will be speaking and discussing about my devotee’s welfare “
Sai is alive. He is antaryami . Then how can he reincarnate? Simply somewhere these people found the words I will reincarnate as 8-year-old boy and using that to build crazy stories. Every single shirdi saibaba devotee has a sai living in them as antaryami – The one who lives in ourself and every life has sai in it as conciousness. And the best part is there is enough proof that only people who surrender to Datta knew that Dattatreya incarnation ends with Shirdi Saibaba.
I never took this topic until this 7 years but the past 2 days am getting few mails from Shirdi Saibaba devotees that they are concerned that Shirdi Saibaba is connected to others by media and if he really had another incarnation.NO is the answer. Do not believe in stories.
Please show your support by spreading the message to SHIRDI SAIBABA DEVOTEES ALONE !!!. I don’t want to hurt other innocent devotees feeling but it’s also our duty to safeguard purity of the name “Sai”. To me and to millions of Shirdi Saibaba devotees …
Sai means Saibaba of “Shirdi”
little servant of Shirdi Saibaba

I request not to mention any false Guru’s name as a Comment to this article
As I don’t wish to mention any names in this holy StarSai Temple. Even Shirdi sai devotees were requested to comment generally and not specify names of false gurus. This article is only to help true Shirdi Saibaba devotees go on right path but never to create any controversy. Our duty is to say the truth and really don’t have interest in the argument.
The reason is there is not one but many cheating innocent shirdi saibaba devotees. Some build temples for baba and sit there as Guru, they do some programs from town to town for Shirdi sai , they have a leader or lets say a guru who acts as if he can help Shirdi sai devotees . Soon they claim to have millions of followers.
It really irritates me and many sai devotees that such false organization are only misleading sai devotees through their speeches, books and programmes. anyway, Shirdi Saibaba is watching. I am after all a onlooker and cant do much but express my feelings through starsai.
