Oh ! Sai ! The feeder of strangers first and feeding the self next ! Bless me with the good qualities of feeding Atities(stragers) first and elevate me higher to higher goal. Sai I bow You !
" LET MY DEVOTEES BE AT ANY DISTANCE, THOUSAND COSS AWAY FROM ME, I WILL DRAW HIM TO SHIRDI LIKE A SPARROW WITH A THREAD TIED TO ITS FEET. "
SHANTI DWEEPAM SHIRDI
Whenever Sai gave a medicine, He would sometimes suggest restrictions in diet which they had to follow strictly. Once it happned that one person did not follow His instructions. The symptoms aggravated and it resulted in death. It was then that Sai changed His way He treated people. He lit a sacred fire "Dhuni", in the Dwarakamai Masjid. He took great care to keep it burning. He fed it with firewood and the sacred ash called "Udhi" was distributed to all by evening, just as He gave away all the money offered to Him during the day - the sacred ash is wealth itself. If one is healthy, it is pleasant and easy to tread the path of bhakthi. Sai is treating people with Udhi only.
