One of our nation's most notable saints was Saibaba. He was known as Shirdi Saibaba because he spent almost all of his life in the small village of Shirdi. The word "sacredness" or "a saint" is spelled "Sai," while "father" or "a well-respected elder" is usually spelled "Baba." As a result, Saibaba is often referred to as a godly father figure. He used to say "Allah Malik," which means "God is the ultimate Lord," and "Sabka Malik Ek," which means "It is the same God, who rules over all," to show how great God is and emphasize people's unity. He was seen deep in meditation and engaging in difficult yogic practices even when he first made an appearance as a young man in Shirdi. His austerity and simple lifestyle persisted until the very end. He called the mosque where he stayed Dwarakamai, a name strongly associated with the Hindu faith.

He quoted from both Hindu scriptures and the Koran, a sacred Muslim text, while donning a long, flowing garment known as a Kafni, typical of a Muslim fakir. As a result, he lived as an amalgam of Hindu and Islamic traditions. He went around the village and begged for food from house to house, leading the life of a mendicant. He also willingly shared that food with his devotees and stray animals, including dogs and cats. He used a brick as his only pillow and slept on the floor. He danced joyfully with the Muslim fakirs and sang Bhajans, or devotional songs, in praise of the Hindu Gods.

Around the middle of the 19th century, he showed up in the Shirdi village in the Ahmednagar District of the state of Maharashtra as a bright young man who was about 16 years old. He left the spot presently subsequently, just to return there after about a year. Saibaba made Shirdi his permanent home after that, and he continued to live there until the year 1918, when he died.

On the Vijayadasami festival day of October 15, 1918, Saibaba attained Mahasamadhi and continued living a saintly life of service to others. Despite his assurance that he would continue to live even after shedding his body and would be blessing and guiding them, his death inspired courage in his followers. Saibaba was buried in Shirdi itself, close to the Dwarakamai mosque. The site, now Samadhi Mandhir, is considered very sacred by the locals and attracts millions of visitors from all over the country and the world.
