Devotee Allowed To Climb & Sit On Sai Baba's Samadhi At Shird !!! - For More News Visit: http://shirdisaibabanews.blogspot.com/

23rd October`2010

According to the rules of Shirdi Sai Trust made in 1979, except for the Temple's Pujari's, NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO CLIMB AND SIT ON SAI BABA'S SAMADHI, be it any VIP, the Sansthan Trustees or even the President of the country.

But Recently, THE SHIRDI SAI TRUST BROKE ITS AGE OLD RULE, BY ALLOWING A SAI DEVOTEE TO ACTUALLY CLIMB UP SAI BABA'S SAMADHI AND SIT RIGHT NEXT TO BABA'S IDOL !!!

A Sai Devotee from Andhra Pradesh, Shri. Adi Narayana Reddy, was actually allowed to climb up Baba's Samadhi and sit next to Baba's Idol. Shri. Adi Narayana Reddy is the same devotee who in the past had donated 150 kgs of Gold to the Sai Temple for Sai Baba's Throne / Walls & Pillars.
- CONTEMPORARY DEVOTEES VERSUS SHIRDI SAI TRUST -
This has raised strong objections from the family of Shri. Gopalrao Mukund Butty (who had got the Butty Wada made) and other contemporary devotees like Shri. Mukund Rao Kote and Shivaji Gondkar, who have all got together and set up their own Committee (Samiti), to object certain ways of the Shirdi Sai Trust like:

1) The way the Shirdi Sai Trust has changed the face of Baba's Samadhi Temple, by covering it in Gold. They want the Butty Wada's simplicity & authenticity to be retained for which they have asked the Shirdi Trust to resist such changes.

2) How can any devotee be allowed to climb up and sit on Baba's Samadhi, when its against the rules of the Sai Trust.

3) Why some devotees have an quick and easy VIP Darshan while others have to wait in long queues.

4) Why were the local devotees not given permission to sing Bhajans inside the Shrine, while the Rich are allowed to sit on Baba's Samadhi.

According to Shri. Subhash Rao Butty (Grandson of Shri. Gopalrao Butty),
if Sai Baba wanted the Butty Wada to be covered in Gold, his grand father (Shri.Gopalrao Butty) could have done so in 1918 itself, when he had got the Butty Wada made, as even then he had the all the means & sources to do so. But, Baba always preferred Simplicity and was very much against the display of one's Wealth or power.

He never gathered any sort of wealth except for the Love of his devotees.

And today, devotees in love and gratitude for Baba, offer Gold / Silver and other Precious items to Baba. So much so that, everything has now been covered in Gold, be it Baba's Throne, his Chariot or the Walls & Pillars of his Samadhi's sanctum sanctorum. In a way, Baba has now been immersed in all the things for which he stood against.

Shri. Ashok Khambekar, Managing Trustee, Shri Sai Baba Sansthan has said that they would consider their demands and call them for talks also.
To be noted:
In Shri Sai Satcharitra, Chapter XIV it is said that Baba always used to get wild and scolded those who brought costly & rich articles. He had told Mr. Nanasaheb Chandorkar that His property consisted of 1 Koupin (codpiece), 1 stray piece of cloth, 1 Kafni & a Tumbler, and that all the people troubled Him by bringing all these unnecessary, useless and costly articles."

Baba also never allowed Mahalsapati to accept any money or gifts that devotees who came to see Baba showered on him.

Baba kept him poor in Kind, but rich in his Spiritual Heart.
Baba gifted him the supreme Bliss, much more valuable than any physical and transitory richness.
