Shirdi Sai Baba Paduka in Harda-Madhya Pradhesh.

Share Author: Manisha.Rautela.Bisht on 11:29 PM

Dear all,
It is said that by the mere darshan of Sai Baba’s Charan Paduka all miseries come to an end.
Well, do you know where the Sai Baba’s original Charan Padukas are?

You will be surprised to hear the answer for this – It is with the Parulkar's, a Marathi family living in Harda in Madhya Pradesh.

Many years back, Sai Baba, as a mark of his remembrance, himself had given his Charan Paduka’s to "Shri.Krishnaji Narayan Parulkar" the then head of the Parulkar family.

The Parulkar family, down the generations has preserved these priceless Padukas of Baba as it is, with great care.

At present, the Parulkar family in its third generation is headed by “Shri.Kishore Rangnath Parulkar” who daily worships these Charan Padukas with the same reverence as was being done in his family, since the past 90 years.

He regards himself blessed & fortunate to get an opportunity to do Baba’s Paduka seva.

It was in the year 1915, when Baba had given these Charan Paduka’s to his grand-father “Shri.Krishnarao Narayan Parulkar” who was a great devotee of Sai Baba. Baba used to lovingly call him Chottu Bhaya.
In those days as there were no sufficient means of transportation, so Chottu Bhaya used to take a ride on a bullock cart & also walked quite a distance for several days to reach Shirdi and pay obeisance to Babaji by crossing the groves and glades of the dense forests.

Once Sai Baba asked Chottu Bhaya that why did he undergo so much pain merely to see him and Chottu Bhaya replied,
'' Babaji I don't have any memento of yours & after some days when I go back, I started missing you & hence I am compelled to come here to see you.''

Reacting on this Baba immediately said him to take his padukas as memento, which he was wearing then, and asked him not pain himself to come there again and that it was in the form of these Charan Paduka’s itself, that he himself was coming to Harda to stay with him & his family.

These were the same Padukas which a devotee from Pune had offered to Baba and
Baba had worn them to Lendi Bagh the same day before giving them to Chottu Bhayya, which he worshiped.

And since 1915, the Parulkar family is taking great care of these charan padukas.
Every Thursday many devotees of Sai Baba get together in this house and do the Aarti.

These Charan Padukas of Sai Baba not only have significance of Faith & Devotion attached to them but are also significant historically as they were worn by Baba himself.
