Sai Baba New Stories from His Days in Shirdi

Sai Baba new stories from his days in Shirdi: || OM SAIRAM||: Hello devotees here are some Sai Baba New stories from His Days in Shirdi.

Whenever I read Sai Satcharitra, I always wonder how many incidents and events of Sai Baba’s life have gone unrecorded in the 60 years that he lived in Shirdi. After all, HemadPant started tracking the stories only around 1910, just 8 years before Sai Baba took Samadhi. Interestingly, I came across a couple of stories involving Sai Baba that are not recorded anywhere. While these stories aren’t exactly about miracles, I thought it would be wonderful to share this with the Sai devotees who are eager to get a glimpse and learn more about Sai Babaji’s days in Shirdi.

A memory of Sai Baba New stories from His Days in Shirdi

On a couple of occasions, I had heard my mother-in-law mention that many many years ago, someone in her family used to be closely associated with Sai Baba while Sai Baba physically lived in Shirdi. She never went into more details and for some inexplicable reason, I never pressed for more information. Recently, after having finished another reading of Sai Satcharitra, I decided to ask her. Some of the details may not have passed between generations and some details may have slipped out of her memory over the years but I am documenting whatever she could recollect.

Shirdi Sai Baba
  • My mother-in-law’s grandmother’s father’s name was Hare Ram Baba. He and his wife had one daughter. The daughter got married and later his wife passed away. With no one left at home, in his loneliness Hare Ram Baba sought solace in alcohol. Someone advised him to go to Shirdi and meet Sai Baba to help overcome his alcoholism. When he went to Shirdi and met Sai Baba, Sai Baba told Hare Ram Baba to stay in Shirdi and not to go back to his village. Following this direction from Sai Baba, Hare Ram Baba stayed in Shirdi near Sai Baba for the remainder of his life.
  • Hare Ram Baba’s daughter had five children, all girls. Her husband was very disappointed at not having a son. When the fourth and fifth daughters were born, in frustration he named them very inappropriately. One of them was named Phattu – not the nickname, the actual first name was Phattu. Mother-in-law could not recollect the other daughter’s equally terrible name. Later when Hare Ram Baba’s daughter took all five daughters to Shirdi to visit Hare Ram Baba, they also had the wonderful opportunity to meet Sai Baba in person! During introductions, when Sai Baba heard the names of the last two daughters, he was absolutely furious. He yelled at the parents saying “This is how you name your daughters??” and then Sai Baba said “From now on, her name (pointing to one girl) is Malini and her name (pointing to the other girl) is Ambika”. And thus he changed the two girls’ names forever!! Had I known this story earlier, I would have named my own daughter as Ambika or Mailini as it appears to be dear to Sai Baba.

  • Sai Satcharitra has many stories of Sai Baba advising devotees on when to depart from Shirdi. Here is another one. When Hare Ram Baba’s daughter and five girls went to meet Sai Baba before leaving Shirdi, he asked them to stay for another day. So they stayed back and next day, when they went to meet Sai Baba again, he again asked them to stay back for another day. Finally, next day when they went to meet Sai Baba, he allowed them to leave Shirdi. It is not clear why Sai Baba has done this, perhaps he prevented them from being involved in an accident or facing some other problem or perhaps he knew that they would benefit spiritually and materially from staying in Shirdi longer.
  • Sai Satcharitra has several stories of Sai Baba asking for Dakshina. Here is another instance. Once, Hare Ram Baba took a guest along with him to meet Sai Baba and Sai Baba asked him for Dakshina. The guest responded that he did not have any money at all to give him. The moment the guest said that, a coin fell out of his pocket onto the floor. Sai Baba looked at him and said ‘Really? And you said you did not have any money on you….’.
