Narke who came to have His darshan with full fledged Suit and Boot to go and have food in Mahalsapathy's House. By directing Professor G. Narke like this, Sai Baba very clearly showed that He wanted His devotees to be devoid of Ego and also to be humble. It is also believed that by taking Bhiksha, Sai Baba used to take away the Sanchita and Prarabdha karma of His devotees. It is of young Sai Baba.

The Kafni that Baba has worn is made out of white satin. The Kafni is possibly pasted on the photograph. This photograph of Baba sitting on the stone was taken in It was taken by Shri. Pupal Photo Studio of Ahmednagar.

The below small photograph was given by Sai Baba to Savitri Bai Tendulkar and is still with her descendants. Shamarao Jayker. One day Shri. Ramachandra Atmaram Tarkhad and Jayakar walked into the Dwarakamai when Baba was getting ready to have his bath, and the suns rays were streaming down upon him and his entire body was illuminated.
It looked as though the lustre of a thousand Suns were shining on him. Immediately Tarkhad asked Jayakar to capture the scene in his mind's eye and paint a portrait for him exactly like that and he did. This portrait is in Virendra Tarkhad's i. There is a 'Gangal' filled with water in front with a lota. Baba has taken off his Shirvesh and is bear headed. Looking at his thick abundant beard and mustache I would have thought that he had thick lush hair but it looks scanty.

In the below photograph one can see Kavadi 2 pots filled with the holy water is slung on to a wooden carrier which in turn is carried to the Samadhi Mandir on a shoulder. This holy water is used for Baba's Mangal Snaan. The below photograph is a original photograph of Samadhi Mandir. Hence, this photograph must have been taken before However a few photographs were indeed taken. Most of these photographs were taken after and at that time Baba was not young. Reference: Sai Anantha.
The reasons that can be attributed are as follows: 1. His Sirvesh head gear is loose and hanging and not tied in a knot on His left side as he always does. Even in His biksha pose His sirvesh head gear is tied in a knot on His left side. In the below photograph, the Sirvesh is seen below the cloth on his head. It does not look like he is wearing a Kafni which is V necked and torn at the upper arm, it looks more like a shawl. And there is a white curtain like cloth at his back right side.
What is that? The below photograph is not a original photograph of Sai Baba. Instead the photograph is taken from a Movie. The below photograph showing Sai Baba with a Parrot supposed to have been taken in the year is not the original photograph of Sai Baba.
The below photograph is not the original photograph but a morphed photograph of Dwarakamai Masjid circulated as orignal photograph. But, we would like to clarify that these photographs are not the final Samadhi Procession photographs of Shri Sai Baba. Hence, www. The below re-created photograph using the latest technology is being circulated in many Web Media and Social Networks wrongly stating and misleading Sai devotees that Baba had appeared in front of His Samadhi at the Samadhi Mandir in Shirdi.
We would like to inform Sai devotees that it is far from truth and urge them not to get carried away by seeing such photographs and also request them to cross verify before putting the posts in Web Media and Social Networks.
Sai Devotees can easily conclude that this is not at all original photograph of Shri Sai Baba based on the following points: 1. Shri Sai Baba never used to apply such big Chandan on his forehead like it is being dipicted in this photograph. Shri Sai Baba never used Kamandala holy vessel to carry water used by Gurus and Saints as shown in this photograph.
Shri Sai Baba's Eyes were believed to be very powerful and vibrant which we cannot see in this photograph Photograph and Article Courtesy: Shri. Nagaraj Anvekar, Bangalore. Sai Baba never used to wear Long Kafnis as shown in the Picture below.
Baba's feet were clearly seen and not like as shown in the picture below wherein the entire feet is being covered. Baba sported a well built body and not like shown in the below photograph. Hence, it is very evident that Baba's face has been morphed over Some other Person's Body.
For better clarity and understanding on the matter, we would like to show the Kafni given by Baba to Dr. Baba's Kafni given to Dr. Normally, the singing is accompanied by musical instruments such as bells, gongs and cymbals. The object of worship is devoutly decorated with posy garlands and aromatic incense and musk are kept smoldering.
While the devotees sing psalms, either an officiant or a devotee revolves clockwise, usually a fivefold oil lamp - consisting of five oil-traylets - round the object of adoration. Such a performance of aarti with a fivefold oil-lamp is called Panchaarti.
At times Aarti is performed with a single, three or elevenfold and so on lamps.
A lamp with wicks burning clarified butter ghee is the most preferred. Sometimes, instead of an oil-lamp, ignited camphor placed on a try is waved. All such details as the number of wicks, the kind of fuel, etc. After the devotional singing, the flame of the Aarti-lamp is offered to the devotees, who pass their hands by turns over the sacred-flame and quickly draw them to their faces and heads as a gesture of drawing unto themselves the auspicious energy emanating from the receptacle of grace', i.
Though, the tradition of offering Aarti is almost ubiquitous in the Hindu liturgy, the details of the modus operandi differ from region to region and are distinguished by many sectarian embellishments. This custom of Aarti, as a from of congregational worship, is more in vogue in northern India, especially in Maharashtra. In the South, usually it is done as a concluding part of the ritualistic worship, both public and personal which is called Mangala Aarti or Neerajana.
In Mangala Aarti normally camphor is kindled instead of an oil lamp. Congregational worship with prolonged singing of devotional songs in unison is seldom found in South India.
In the whole gamut of the literature on Sri Sai Baba, the details regarding how and whence the custom of performing regular Aartis to Baba commenced, are not clearly recorded. Even the small stray details scattered here and there are fuzzy and incongruous. Let us first glean all the available data from various sources and construct them into a coherent hypothetical sequence, before proceeding to discuss the posing discrepancies therein.
The Seed-bed of Sai Worship The introduction of Aarti as a regular congregational worship at Shirdi is to be seen as marking a new phase in the evolution of the worship of Sri Sai Baba.
Even from the day of his advent at Shirdi, people - though a handful in the beginning - looked upon him as a holy man, a fakir a Muslim ascetic. The introduction of Aarti as a regular congregational worship at Shirdi is to be seen as marking a new phase in the evolution of the worship of Sri Sai Baba. To pious Hindus, an ascetic, whether he is a Hindu or a Muslim, is a holy man worthy of reverence.
As Sai Baba's fame soon started spreading, people — mostly Hindus -were drawn to him in galore from far and wide. It is the pious custom of the Hindus to bow down or prostrate in reverence before a saint by touching his feet, as a mark of humility and self-abnegation.
As most of the people who were drawn to Sri Sai Baba, from the outset, were Hindus, we can imagine the customary fashion in which he could have been honoured in general. Obviously Baba did not object to the pious usage. Strictly speaking, that was the seed-bed upon which the glorious tree of Sai Worship has begun to grow! As the devotee's emotional attachment to his Guru grows, the inflated emotional fervour seeks some form of expression.
Who Performed the First Aarti? It is a familiar notion among many Sai devotees that the Aarti tradition at Shirdi was started by Shri K. Bhishma, which is in a way off the mark. Swami Sai Sharan Anand, who had direct association with Baba for about eight years, i. Afterwards the tradition of Aarti was started. Only Noon Aarti was performed in the Dwarakamai. The Aarti tradition was first started by Noolkar, a Retd. Mamaledar of Pandharpur. Dixit also says, "Before, Baba never allowed anybody to perform Aarti to him.
Shri Noolkar was a sub-judge at Pandharpur. Shri Nanasaheb Chandorkar, was also working there in as Mamaledar. He was overwhelmingly impressed with Shri Sai Baba even at the first sight. Your husband is going to install Rama in the throne of Ayodya, and as soon as he is placed on the throne, he will kill your both the sons. I shall be very glad, if your Bharat is installed in the throne.
Kayakayi said, " I have no objection to the installation of Rama whom I love. Kayakayi went to quiet her when Vikalpa also prejudiced her against Rama.
Mantra, seeing a sudden change in her mistress, was mightily pleased with her and kissed her. Kayakayi said, "My dearest, just tell me what I should do to get rid of Rama. I, therefore, tell you with pleasure that if the king come to see you, ask him to fulfil the promise given by him to you during the battle he had fought with the demons in heaven.
Do you remember the promise given by him to you. He promised you that he would give you whatever you would ask from him as a reward for helping him in the battle. You should, therefore, ask the king to send Rama to the forest of the demons for fourteen years and place Bharat on the throne of Ayodya.
And another thing is that if the prince goes to the forest, the king will soon die of grief for his son ; and it will be then a very good thing for you and your sons to pass your days in happiness. Kayakayi liked the advice of Mantra j and before the king came into her room at night, she had taken off her ornaments and thrown herself onthe ground with her hair in disorder. In the meantime, the king entered her room and asked her what the matter was, when she replied, " Thou, wicked king.
Be gone. I know your heart. You are going to banish my sons to a forest and give the kingdom to Rama. I do not want you in my room. What I want from you is that you should banish Rama to the forest of the demons for fourteen years and install my son Bharat in the throne of Ayodya. In the meantime, his faithful minister, Sumntra came and informed the king, who was lying on the ground in disorder, that everything was ready for performing the ceremony of installation, when the latter told the former what had happened in the room of Kayakayi.
The minister, being exceedingly sorry, went and called Rama in the room of Kayakayi. The prince came and implored his father to tell him the cause of his grief, when Kayakayi replied "The king had given me a promise at the battle with the demons that he would give me whatever I would ask from him.
I have asked him to fulfil that promise, and since then he has been very sorry. I have no objection to do so. It is just the same thing to me, because Bharat and I are one. Rama then, taking his leave of Kayakayi went to his mother, Kausalya, and told her what had happened. Kausalya became very sorry and said, Thou shalt not leave me.
Hide thyself in my room for fourteen years, and I shall keep the secrecy. I cannot remain without thee. I am now bound by my promise to go to the forest.
I cannot live here without you, and if you leave me here alone and go to the forest, I shall commit suicide. I cannot take you with me to the forest, as you are delicate and will not be able to bear hardship with me.
I, therefore, go down on my knees and implore you not to leave me here alone. Lastly he went to take his leave of Dasharatha, when the king said with tears in his eyes, " I feel much for thee. The wicked and wretched woman has done this all, and I do not think that I shall live until tliou returnest to Ayodya. I shall die of grief for thee. As I cannot tell thee to break the promise given by thee to Kayakayi, I give thee my consent to go to the forest.
Child, take with thee all necessary things and pass thy days in happiness. I shall dress myself in valkalyas [barks of a tree] and pass my days in meditation. They arrived at Ganga teera, where Rama sat down for rest on the grass under the shade of a tree near a beautiful river and, having refreshed himself there, requested a fisherman called Guhaka, who was his devotee, to convey him with Sita and Lakshuman to the other side of the river.
Guha asked him who he was, when he informed him that he was Rama, the eldest son of Dasharatha. Whereupon the fisherman, having embraced him, conveyed him with Sita and Lakshuman to the other side of the river, when Sumant took his leave of the prince and returned to Ayodya. Rama then went to the abode of Bharadwaj, a Rishi, who worshipped him and requested him to stay with him for about fifteen days, when the prince said, "I cannot stay with you any longer, because the people of Ayodya will often come here and entreat me to return to the kingdom.
I shall, therefore, go to the Dandakaranya"[A forest called Dandakaranya]. At the request of Rama, Bharadwaj showed him the way that led to tbe hills called Chitrakuta, where many learned Rishis lived. He went up to the hills and saw Valmika, a Rishi, and worshipped him with respect and reverence. Lakshuman built a parnakutika [A small hut] there, and they all lived in it. On the return of Surnant to Ayodya Dasharatha died of grief for Rama.
It was a pity that none of his sons was present at the time of his death. His wives, Kausalya and Sumitra, much mourned for the king but Kayakayi did not shed a tear for him. To perform the funeral ceremony of the king his sons, Bharat and Shatrughana, were sent for, and until they returned to Ayodya, his body was preserved in a Kadayi,[A large vessel made of iron. Soon after, Bharat and Shatrughana returned to the city ; and, having seen the lifeless body of their father, they violently cried and much lamented for him.
Vashishta said, " The body of the king cannot be burnt,unless some one is placed on the throne of Ayodya. Rama and Lakshuman have gone to the forest and I, therefore, ask Bharat to occupy the throne, as Kayakayi has got them banished to the forest tosecure the throne for him. I do not want the kingdom. I want nothing from this city. I go down on my knees and beseech you not to install me in the throne, as my beloved Rama is a rightful claimant of it.
I will go wherever Rama is, and pass my days with him.
Shortly after, the body of Dasharatha was carried to the funeral ground, and burnt with all his wives, except Kausalya, Sumitra and Kayakayi. Kausalya and Sumitra were ready to burn themselves with their husband, but Vashishta prevented them from doing so, as they had sons. After the funeral ceremony of Dasharatha was over, Bharat went and saw his mother, Kayakayi, when she said, "Son! I have caused Rama and Lakshuman to be banished to a forest and secured the kingdom for you with the greatest difficulty.
Now without delay take charge of the kingdom, and you will be very happy. We have now no enemies ; and it is a very good sign that the king has also died.
It is most sinful, wicked and disgraceful on your part to cause the death of my father and the banishment of my dear brother to the forest. Rama is the rightful claimant of the throne, let him come and take his kingdom. I want nothing except Rama and shall pass my days with him in the forest.
They all arrived at the river, where, Guha had his hut ; and at the request of Bharat the fisherman conveyed all the people to the other side of the river. Lakshuman having seen the people,thought that Kayakayi had sent them to kill Rama and began to let off arrows at them. But Rama stopped him, saying that they were not his enemies. Shortly after, they all reached the paranakutika of Rama, when the prince embraced them very affectionately and asked his mother how the king was doing.
Kausalya, overwhelmed with grief, could not utter a word, when Vashista broke the sad news to him. He deeply mourned for his father and remained mute for a while. Vashishta condoled him to perform the last ceremony of his father. Whereupon he went to the river, Gaya, and performed the ceremony. Kausalya, Sumitra, Vashishta, and all the people persuaded Rama to return to Ayoclya and take charge of the kingdom, when lie said, " I am always true to my promise, faithful to my wife, and of a firm resolution.
I cannot, therofore, break the promise given by me to my mother, Kayakayi, in fulfilment of the promise given by my father to her and return to Ayodya under any circumstances.
I shall return to Ayodya in fourteen years and fourteen days.
I, therefore, wish you to go backto the city and rule there on my behalf. I therefore, beg that you will kindly let me go to Nandigram and stay there for fourteen years and fourteen days. Rama also gave his padukas [wooden shoes] to Shatrughana and made him go to Ayodya and rule there on his behalf. Shatrughana returned to Ayodya with Kausalya, Sumitra, and all the people who had accompanied him.
A few days after he had left for Ayodya, the Brahmans, who lived at Chitrakuta, said, " Rama, your wife is very beautiful and attractive. If you stay here with us any longer, the demons will come here and devour us all.
We are informed that the demons, Trishira, Khur, and Dushan, will shortly come here to carry off your Sita. We, therefore, request you to leave this place at once. Let all the demons on earth come here, I shall kill them all and defend you. The Brahmans, havingno faith in what Rama had said, left the hills with their wives and children. Soon after, Rama removed to the Dandakaranya ; and on his way to the forest, he killed a demon called Viradha.
Viradha was a gandharv called Tumbar. One day Kuber, having called him in his presence to sing for him, the demi-god got tipsy and went before him.
Kuber got enraged at his conduct and cursed him, saying that he would be a demon and would wander in the forest for ten thousand years but that he would be released from the curse, when he would be killed by the hands of Rama.
As appointed, the gandharv was killed by Rama and released from the curse. Rama spent thirteen years with Sita and Lakshuman in visiting holy places. And during his pilgrimage he visited the abode of Atri, a Brahman, where he worshipped the three headed god, Datatraya. Thence he went and visited Agasti, a very powerful Rishi. The story of the power of the Rishi is as follows : " There lived three demons called Atapi, Vatapi, and Alva.
They were blessed by the god, Siva, with the art of enchantment, by means of which they devoured the innocent Brahmans. Vatapi became food and Alva water. Atapi became a benefactor and invited every Brahman to partake of the food and water.
The Brahman came; and as soon as he ate the food arid drank the water, Atapi cried aloud the names of Vatapi and Alva, who, having responded to the call of their brother, tore off the body of the Brahman and came out. Thus they killed every Brahman and ate his flesh. One day Agasti was invited by Atapi to partake of the food and water The Rishi complied with his invitation ; and as soon as he ate the food and drank the water, Atapi cried aloud as usual the names of his brothers but to his great surprise, they did not respond to his call, as the Rishi burnt Vatapi in his stomach.
Alva, who had escaped from the belly of the Rishi, and his brother, Atapi, assumed different forms and began to run away, when the Rishi cut off the head of Atapi. Alva escaped and mixed himself with the ocean, when Agasti drank off the whole ocean and killed the demon. Rama stayed with Agasti for a month ; and during his stay there he presented him with an arrow to kill Ravana. From the Dandakaranya Rama set out for Panchavati.
On the road he saw a huge bird called Jatayu, who asked Rama who he was. I am called Rama. Your father was my greatfriend. I helped him during the battle which he had fought with Shukra and, therefore, he called me his brother.
Lakshuman gathered fruits and kandamuls for Sita and Rama, which they ate and passed their days there. He guarded the hut every night for fear of thedemons and he himself remained without food. One day Lakshuman went near a thicket to collect fruits and kandamuls[Esculent roots], where he saw a deadly sword descending from above. The weapon fell where he was standing; and it having looked sharp and powerful, he tried it on the thicket, but, to his great astonishment,the thicket was cut into two parts, and there flowed alarge quantity of blood.
Lakshuman was afraid that he killed some ascetic, while meditating in the thicket; and in order to satisfy himself about it he immediately went to Rama with the khadag and informed him of what had happened. Rama said, " Brother, do not be afraid. The blood which flows through the thicket is of a demon called Shabari. This demon is the son of Surpanakha, a sister of Ravana. He was meditating in the thicket unobserved with a view to get the weapon from Siva.
The god had sent the weapon for him. If the weapon had gone to the hands of the demon, he would have annihilated the whole of the universe with it. Thank God that you have got it; and I tell you to take a particular care of it. On the day Shabari was killed by Lakshuman, Surpanakha found in her dream that some calamity had be fallen her son; and having been awakened, she, accompanied by four demonesses, immediately started for the forest to look for her son.
She wandered in the forestand at last came to the thicket ; and seeing the blood there she searched the whole wood and at last found that her son was cut into two pieces. As soon as she saw her son, she fainted and cried violently for him. The other four demonesses condoled with her ; and immediately after, they burnt the body of Shabari and went in search of the enemy who had killed the demon.
They traced Lakshuman from his foot-prints ; and in order to revenge the killing of her son, Surpanakha formed herself into a beautiful damsel ; and taking with her the four demonesses, who had also formed themselves into very good maid-servants, she went to Lakshuman. She said, " I have travelled all over the earth in search of a husband ; but I have not found a young man as beautiful as yourself. I have become mad after you, and unless you consent to marry me, I shall not live.
Do not you see how I look? Can you get elsewhere a quite young girl like me? There they live in a hut. I cannot do any thing without their consent. I have made up my mind to marry him, and he has also promised me to take me for his wife subject to your approval of the match. I, therefore, pray that you will kindly pity me and give me your letter or any other sign signifying your consent to our marriage.
Rama surveyed her from head to foot ; and finding her eye- balls upside down, he knew that she was Surpanakha in the form of a human being. Rama, therefore, said, " I have no objection to give you my consent but I shall write it on your back. The demoness hastened to the place where Lakshuman was standing and said, " You see, your brother has consented to our marriage with much pleasure.
If you like, you may go and ask him about it. I am not a liar, you know. He has given me no letter or any sign but he has simply told you to marry me. The letter stated that 'as soon as Lakshuman read it, he should at once cut off the nose and ears of the demoness. When her nose and ears were thus cut off, she and her maid-servants as sumed their original forms and fled for fear of losing their lives, screaming hideously.
Listening to her yells Trishira , Khur and Dushan came to help her witn fourteen thousand demons. The man, who called himself Lakshuman, has disfigured me at the instigation of his brother and sister-in-law. You must now go there andcut off their heads and guts, so that I may drink their blood andrefresh myself with it. Trishira, Khur and Dushan, having thought it below their dignity to go and fight with those human beings, selected fourteen powerful demons and sent them to Panchawati with Surpanakha, but Rama cut off their heads with one arrow.
Surpanakha fled in alarm and informed Trishira, Khur and Dushan of what had happened. Whereupon they marched against Rama with an army of demons but they were also killed by the prince with his arrow in a moment.
Surpanakha fled to Lanka in consternation and, showing her nose and ears to her brother, Ravana, informed him that Trishira, Khur and Dushan had been killed by Rama with fourteen thousand demons. Ravana was greatly alarmed at the sad news and, having called upon his uncle, Maricha, said to him, " You see, Rama has killed Trishira, Khur and Dushan and disfigured Surpanakha.
If this enemy is allowed to go unnoticed, he will even kill me one day or other. I have, therefore, made up my mind to carry off Sita, his wife, to Lanka and kill Rama and Lakshuman. Rama will pursue you ; and as soon as he is separated from Sita, I shall carry her off to Lanka.
I, therefore, advise you tochange your mind and attend to your affairs. It is your duty to help me on such occasions. I, therefore, command you to come with me and do what I tell you to do. On their arrival there, Ravana stood behind a thicket near the abode of Rama, and his uncle, forming himself into a stag, played tricks in front of it.
Sita saw the stag and said to Rama," Dearest, look at that stag. What a beautiful creature it is. I wish I would get its skin for my waistcoat. To comply with the wishes of his wife Rama took up his dhanushaban and aimed at the stag. The animal began to run, and Rama went after it. When he went far off from the paranakutika, Ravana who was standing behind the thicket unobserved, imitated the voice of Rama and cried out with a view to separate Lakshuman from Sita, " Lakshuman help me.
Lakshuman help me. I am in distress. I have just heard him cry out for help. Share our website with your friends. Pages from the book.
