Thursday Message for All IL Friends. Happy Guruwar! Ashtotram is (praise) offering our prayers to the Divine, threw "OM", and the attributes of the Divine. There are 108 i Shirdi Sai Baba's ashtotra sada namavali's are there. Namavali-1 (Flower-1) Flower -1: “OmShri Sai Nathaya Namaha” Meaning: My humble salutationto the venerable Master Shri Sai Natha. Reflections: He came to Shirdi,what was his name, where from He came, why He came to Shirdi, nothing was known. He was nameless. “Sai” in Sanskritdenotes “Sakshat Ishwar”’. “Sayi” in Persianmeans “poor Sufi saint”. Shri Sai Satcharita, chapter-V: “When the marriage-partycame to Shirdi, it alighted at the foot of a Banyan Tree in Bhagat Mhalsapati’sfield, near Khandoba’s Temple. All the Members of the party descended one byone and the Fakir also got down. Bhagat Mhalsapati saw the young Fakir, gettingdown and accosted Him “ya Sai”( welcome Sai). Others also addressed Him as“Sai” Thenceforth, He became“Sai Baba”. Thanks. May Sai Baba Bless you!!!
