'Shri Sai Satcharita: The Life and Teachings of Shirdi Sai Baba'
By Govind R. Dabholkar (Author), Indira Kher (Translator)
Translated from original Marathi by Indira Kher, this work is a verse composition containing the known facts about Shri Sai Baba's life at Shirdi, and also his teachings seeks to meet a long-felt need. This is the Bible of Sai devotes in every sense of the term, in it's veracity, sanctity, faith and devotion that it inspires and the deep satisfaction, a sense of fulfilment that it brings to the devotee, it has no equal. Its sanctity derives from the fact that its idea was conceived during Baba's lifetime and with his blessings and express permission. For those unaware of Shri Sai Satcharita, it is necessary to add that in the original it runs into 53 chapters and contains over 9,000 verses. Every chapter has a judicious mixture of philosophy, stories and anecdotes along with the Baba's teachings.
