Dear all ,
I am sharing 142 photo's out of 196 photo's taken during the centenary celebration of Palki procession of Sai Baba and Ram Navami celebration 2011 in Shirdi .

It was 100 year back that Shri Ram Navami was celebrated and initiated by Baba for the first time in the village of Shirdi .
And now the show and pomps has reached to its zenith .This is evident as we scroll through the picture gallery of celebration in which more than 4 lakh devotees reached Shirdi to have Baba's darshan and offer their love to Him.

All the streets in Shirdi were filled with Baba's Palki processions.

From different nook and corners of the country, bare footed, of different colours and hues, Sai devouts poured into Shirdi with Sai baba idols on their shoulders. Sansthan officials said that lakhs of devotees carried Sai Baba's Palki's all the way from several places in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh & Punjab.

All walked for days and days all the way from Mumbai to Shirdi and some walked bare-foot all the way in the Padh-yatra. Devotees smeared with Gulal and vermillion danced all through the route, singing the praise of the greatest seer of all times.

Two Padh Yatra groups from Mumbai consisting of only ladies also reached Shirdi carrying Baba's Palki.

25 Non-resident Indians from Dubai & a few from USA also walked all the way from Mumbai to Shirdi with Baba's Palki processions.

A few devotees from Shirdi ran carrying a "Sai Jyot" (Burning Torch) all the way from Dhupkheda village to Shirdi for Ram Navami.

Mumbai's Sai Devotee Shri.Manoj Mhatre donated a 920 gram Gold Crown worth Rs.21 lakhs.
This crown studded with Diamonds in a "Om" shape was placed on Baba head during the Arati.

Cine actor Shri.Manoj Kumar, Shri.Prem Sagar (Son of Shri.Ramanand Sagar),
Shri.Sudhir Dalvi ( Played the role of Sai Baba in Shirdi Ke Sai Baba)
and Shri.Subhash Rao Butty (Grandson of Shri.Gopalrao Butty) also came to Shirdi for Baba's darshan
and were felicitated by the trustees for their efforts to spread the name of Sai Baba's Shirdi nationally &  internationally.

In the Temple premises near the Main Entrance of the Temple,a beautiful Statue of Sai Baba was made by Mumbai's Dwarkamai Mandal, who were later felicitated by the Sai Sansthan.

As the photo's are in large number I am uploading them in 2 parts .Devotee are requested to follow the 2 parts to view all the photo's and video of the centenary celebration 2011 in Shirdi .Readers who wish to download the picture can do so by clicking on the individual photo and save it .Jai Sai Ram.

I feel I am like a river, having my own course, stream and flow but the final destiny is to be one with the boundless ocean of my Sathguru Shirdi Sai Baba.

Amidst all the worldly rituals I am performing,I do not dare to loose sight of my Sainath. He is the sole driving force, the guide and the Supreme master.

The strings of my life are in his hand,I am just a puppet at His Holy Feet.
