Extraordinary Greatness of Shirdi Sai Baba


As described in Chapter VII of Shri Sai Satcharita, People benefitted immensely by having Baba`s darshan. Some became hale and hearty, wicked people were turned into good ones. Leprosy was cured in some cases, many got their desires fulfilled; without any medicine being put in the eyes, some blind men got back their sight and some lame ones got their limbs. Nobody could see the end of His extraordinary greatness. His fame spread far and wide, and pilgrims from all sides flocked to Shirdi. Baba had his ‘Asan’ near the Dhuni and always rested there. He sat there in meditation, sometimes without a bath.

He used to tie a small white turban on His head and wear a clean Dhotar round His waist, and a shirt on His body. This was His attire in the beginning. He first practised medicine in the village; He examined patients and gave medicines. He was always successful and He became famous as a Hakim (doctor). A curious case may be narrated here. One devotee had his eyes quite red and swollen. No doctor was available in Shirdi. The other devotees took him to Baba. In such cases other doctors would use ointments, anjans, cow`s milk and camphorated drugs etc. Baba`s remedy was quite unique. He pounded some ‘Beeba’ (some Carpus Ana Cardium, i.e. marking nuts) and made two balls of them and thrust them on in each eye of the patient and wrapped a cloth-bandage round them. Next day the bandage was removed and water was poured over them. The inflammation subsided and the pupils became white and clear. Though, the eyes are very delicate, the ‘Beeba’ caused no hurt but removed the disease of the eyes. Many such cases were cured; this is only one instance in this regard.

    Respected Sir,

    I always view and mark that your contribution through WordPress.Com is very benevolent and more beneficial to all categories of worldly people.This above topic is also not less than; rather intensifies, potentiates and initiates one`s mind to gauze and guide own self to remain in touch with Divine as undone is always done by Almighty only. This opens the mind that Shirdi Sai Baba is the reflection of Almighty, called as ‘Avatar’ and we, all may get the torch to use for ourselves and others at times as per potentiality of battery in torch. Truth is God,and love all to comprehend the truth, the real Religion.

    With thanks
    Your Divine Brother

    Dear Uncle,
    Om Sairam.

    Sai Baba’s leelas see really very amazing. One has to feel them to heart`s content to know the sweetness of the sportive play of Sai. He is a Dhanvanthari for us. Just by mere looking or through words of Sai, all the diseases would vanish. Medicines have very less importance in front of Sai Baba’s blessings.One incident I like to share here.

    When Ganapat, a tailor and a great Sai devotee once suffered from malaria, asked Sai :”Baba, what sin have i committed? Why doesn’t this malaria leave me? I have tried all medicines, but no use, now you should only tell me some remedy”. Sai felt pity and said “Feed a few morsels of curds and rice to a black dog near the temple of mother Laxmi, You will be cured immediately”.He went and fed the black dog with curd rice and was cured!. Sai’s words amazing 🙂

    Om Sairam. His leelas are uncountable. Sai bless all.

    Respected Brother,

    Shirdi Sai Baba as a whole was an Angel. His activities in all works seem to be wonderful & so to say he was in the form of ‘Dharma’.

    Yours Sincerely,

    There are enumerable stories about what God can do. This universe exists since ages and God is present in every particle.

  7. Vinod Varma says:

    Glad to learn about life and miracles of Baba. Mysterious are ways of divine for the eyes of mortals. Thanks for this act of satsang to pass on glory of the supreme.

    Respected Sir,

    A nice article regarding the miracle of Shirdi Sai Baba. He is the Almighty who had the supreme power as he was one of form of God (Abatara). What we say magic or miracle that is the blessing of God which is acquired only through meditation. Dhuni i.e. agni fire lighted by Baba is the eye witness of activities of God. The success of medical treatment of Baba got him recognized as relieving distressed life in form of God. The blessing of Baba always enlightened us. The description of the article by you help us aware about the Almighty Supreme Soul.

    Pranam kaka,

    The actual meaning of Guru is that, the person who removes all darkness and miseries from our life and shows the path of supreme light.One who finds Guru in life, he gets everything in life. The greatness of Shirdi Sai Baba was always amazing and full of miracles. All his activities were for the sake of mankind.

  10. Senthil Kumar says:

    Babas leelas cannot be grasped in a lifetime. In kaliyug God descends not to kill demons but to change the demons residing in heart. Sankirtana movement .. The supreme personality of God descended in Human Form to remove the miseries of humanity. According to his close devotees Baba was also operating in other planets in different forms . His Debt cannot be repaid in 1 lifetime . Hail Sai Nath . We are lucky to have god/guru like Baba in this age of Kali who is full of mercy.
