Shirdi Sai Baba
Shraddha(Faith) and Saburi(Patience)
No verifiable information is given regarding Sai Baba's real name, place or time of birth. When asked about his past, he often gave elusive responses. The name "Sai" was given to him upon his arrival at Shirdi, According to the book (Sai Satcharita), Sai Baba arrived at the village of Shirdi in the Ahmednagar District of Maharashtra, British India, when he was about 16 years old. He led an ascetic life, sitting motionless under a neem tree and meditating while sitting in anasana (posture). For four to five years Baba lived under a neem tree and often wandered for long periods in the jungle around Shirdi.
After 1910 Sai Baba's fame began to spread in Mumbai. He had no love for perishable things and his sole concern was self-realization. He taught a moral code of love, forgiveness, helping others, charity, contentment, inner peace, and devotion to God and guru. He gave no distinction based on religion or caste. Sai Baba's teaching combined elements of all religion: Sai Baba opposed all persecution based on religion or caste. He was an opponent of religious orthodoxy – Christian, Hindu and Muslim. Sai Baba encouraged his devotees to pray, chant God's name. He advised his devotees and followers to lead a moral life, help others, love every living being without any discrimination, and develop two important features of character: devotion to the Guru (teacher) and waiting cheerfully with patience and love.
In his teachings, Sai Baba emphasized the importance of performing one's duties without attachment to earthly matters and of being content regardless of the situation. Sai Baba encouraged charity, and stressed the importance of sharing.
