Walkathon ~ Chennai To Shirdi

On 27th July`2014,
a group of 13 Sai Baba devotees from Chennai walked all the way to Shirdi with "Sai Baba’s palanquin". On their arrival in Shirdi they were given a warm welcome by the Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust, who congratulated them for their 31-day feat.

This is not for the first time for this group to make the 1650 km long Walkathon from Chennai to Shirdi. To invoke the blessings of Sai Baba, they have been walking the same since the past 4 years and every year they carry Sai Baba’s palanquin as a mark of their devotion for Baba.“Next year, we wish to bring Sai Baba’s chariot”, the Sai Walkers’ leader said.

The group used to walk 50 kilometres every day and they covered the 1650 km distance between Chennai and Shirdi in 31-days. After leaving Chennai, they took “Sai Darshan” at Sai temple in Mailapur, and later paid their obeisance at Pattipulam Sai temple which is 70 Km from their origin. Here the Temple President K. V. Ramani felicitated every one of the Sai walkers with Tulsi garland, and wished them ‘a happy, comfortable, walk ahead’.

Ramani kept in touch the ‘walkers’ throughout their march inquiring about their health.

This group of the Walkathon visited Tirupati and Pandharpur enroute. At Tirupati, they invoked the blessings of Balaji. And at Pandharpur, the Sai Walkers had Darshan of Shri Vithhal.

On arrival in Shirdi, they said “Saibaba is the great Saint of this era. We experience his existence and presence every day. We must pray from the depths of our heart to be heard”
