“Sri Satchidananda Sadguru Sainath Maharaj ki Jai!”
"It is a great honour for me to be a medium for devotees reaching out to their beloved Sai Baba.
“Your appreciation, love and dedication are all but blessings bestowed on me by the Almighty.
“When people ask me the reason for building the temple, I tell them it is ‘devotion’ that spurred my inner soul to build this edifice, which today attracts over 2 lakh devotees every year. It was Shri Sai who appeared in my dreams; it was he who incarnated as an old man and sold me this piece of land in Shirgaon. The result is a splendid abode of Shri Sai Baba, which people call the Prati-Shirdi.
“The Shri Sai Baba Temple at Shirgaon is a tribute to the indelible mark the 'faqir from Shirdi' has left on my mind and soul. I simply followed his command and built a second home for him, and dedicate it to his unending devotees.
“I sincerely hope that a visit to this shrine will help you destress yourself and start life afresh with the hope that the "God is with me." Bow to Shri Sai - Peace be to all.”
