Spiritual Truths


"Meditate upon me, chant my name and sing my deeds. Your devotion will increase and karma destroyed."

Sai Baba of Shirdi was born around 1838 AD. He lived in Shirdi, which is near Mumbai, India. His spiritual teachings are meant for people of all religions.

Sai Baba is one of the greatest Sufi saints of our time. The debate on whether he was a Muslim or a Hindu, is unresolved till date. In his time, his devotees were both Hindus and Muslims. Years after his death, his spirit still guides his devotees.

Some of Sai Baba’s key teachings/beliefs include:

  • Oneness of God

  • Equality and tolerance of all religions

  • Love and respect for each other and compassion towards the downtrodden and animals

  • He believed that mere reading of spiritual books was not enough, converting this knowledge to real spiritual change was essential i.e. improving oneself

  • He emphasized forgiveness as a virtue and assertiveness in the pursuit of truth (the righteous path) rather than aggression

  • Devotion to Guru as the spiritual path leading to liberation from the cycle of birth-death-rebirth

  • His path of devotion emphasized Faith and Patience

  • He did not believe in any major religious rituals, all he wanted was love and devotion from his devotees – they should remember him always

  • He did not like devotees consuming alcohol at all; he was a non-vegetarian himself

  • He believed and followed “different strokes for different folks”, for example, the life of an ascetic was required for some while for others the life of a house-holder would suffice. For some vegetarianism is essential while for others it may not be required.
