100th Punyathithi Celebrations

October 2018

What is Punyathithi?

Shirdi Sai Baba was an Indian Spiritual Master who is regarded by his devotees as a saint, a Sadguru, incarnation of Lord Dattatreya and is revered by followers of all religions.

According to accounts from his life, he preached the importance of realization of the self. His teachings focused on love for all forms of life, forgiveness, helping others, charity, contentment, inner peace, devotion to the God, faith (Sraddha) and patience (Saburi). He stressed the importance of surrender to the true Sadguru, who will lead the disciple through the spiritual process and attain self-realization.

He lived in Shirdi and took “Mahasamadhi” on Oct 15 Vijaya Dashami Day in 1918. Punyathithi is the celebration of this day each year. 2018 is 100th year of Sai Baba’s Punyathithi and North American Shirdi Sai Temple of Atlanta is organizing several programs starting from Dasara of 2017 and culminating on Dasara of 2018.
