Shirdi Sai Baba

Woke up this morning with the strong idea to visit the Shirdi Sai Baba Temple near Adi Annamalai. In previous posts on Arunachala Grace I wrote about the day that, ‘I travelled to Shirdi Sai Baba’, after hearing that a statue of Shirdi Sai was sitting in a crate on the site that would become its Temple Home. Subsequent to that visit, I also attended a beautiful function connected with the installation of the statue.







So today would be my first visit since the statue’s installation and Temple’s completion. Upon arriving at the Temple I learnt that today is also the ninth anniversary (in connection with this Temple) of Sri Sai in the aspect of ‘Akshaya Sri Sai’ – the ever-full vessel (of Grace and auspiciousness).

The Temple founder told me the story of seeing a statue of this Sri Sai aspect and immediately feeling compelled to acquire and bring the statue to Tiruvannamalai. This occurred nine years ago and now the same statue is installed in its own small shrine outside the main Sri Shirdi Sai Baba Temple.








Below are a few photographs of ‘Akshaya Sri Sai’ – the ever-full vessel (of Grace and auspiciousness)
















And inside the main Temple, some beautiful paintings and photographs of Sri Shirdi Sai Baba.















And the statue of Sri Shirdi Sai Baba.






For those who 'look' to Sri Shirdi Sai Baba, please visit a very nice website dedicated to him which has a 'question and answer oracle feature'. It can be most inspirational.
