Jai Sai Master!
|Gurusthan where the padukas were |
enthroned in the year 1912
This thursday, pournami has a speciality. A great day indeed for all the Shirdi Sai devotees and all those, who are yearning for Guru in their life.A day on which 100 years back, Padukas were enthroned at Gurusthan at Shirdi. The story goes, briefly, like this: These padukas were made in Bombay, erstwhile Mumbai, and were brought to Shirdi. Sri Sai Baba said that they were "Allah's Padukas", and should be placed in Gurusthan on a particular day. They were duly installed in a solemn ceremony on the august full moon day (then 15th) of 1912, having been carried in a procession from Khandoba temple (reproduced from Shirdi Sai Sansthan website)
