The saga of Shri Sathya Sai Baba of Shirdi started in the middle of the 19th Century when, as a boy of about 16 years of age, he first appeared here under a neem tree absorbed in a hard penance. Fro the next about 60 years, he devoted his life for the upliftment of the poor and suffering. His origin, religion and early life are shrouded in mystery and though he is believed to be an incarnation of lord Shiva, his teachings transcended all religions and beliefs. On Tuesday, the 15th of October, 1918, Shri sai Baba entered his samadhi.
