Shirdi Baba’s birthday falls on September 28. It would be ideal if you read on for an extract from the 1991 talk where Swami uncovers this up to this point obscure actuality about Shirdi Baba’s introduction to the world. Amid His Divine Discourse at Prasanthi Nilayam on September 28, 1991, Swami uncovered the accompanying intriguing insights about the Trinity of Sai Avatars:
“In the previous Nizam’s domains, there was a remote town called Pathri. In that town, there was a couple named Gangabhavadya and Devagiriamma. They were lamenting over the absence of youngsters. In reply to their petitions, a child was conceived on September 28, 1835. Today is the commemoration of that day. The tyke was Sai Baba. His Samadhi (passing) happened on Vijayadasami day in 1918. September 28, 1835 was his date of birth. On Vijayadasami day, he surrendered his body. Despite the fact that this year Vijayadasami falls on September 29th, in the time of Baba’s Samadhi the date was unique.
“The principal approach of Sai was in Maharashtra. The second approach will be in Madras,” Shirdi Baba said. It ought to be noticed that when this frame (Sathya Sai) made its coming, Andhra Pradesh was a piece of Madras Presidency. When he was asked, in what frame the following appearance would occur, Shirdi Baba disclosed to Abdul Baba alone: “I will give darshan for the sake of Sathya for maintaining Truth.” That is the present approach.
The two bodies are unique, however, the Divinity is one. The principal coming was uncovering Divinity. The second appearance is to stir the Divinity (in individuals). The following appearance is for engendering Divinity. The three Sai’s are Shirdi Sai, Sathya Sai, and Prema Sai. The explanation behind relating this is today happens to be the birthday of Shirdi Baba (September 28,1835). He achieved Samadhi in 1918. Bodies are transient. These vestures are expected just for aficionados. Except if the Divine accompanies a shape, nobody can create confidence in the Formless. The Divine in the human frame is the arrangement for understanding the Formless Absolute.”
