Saibaba Temple of Miracles

"Yadā yadā hi dharmasya glānir bhavati bhārata 
  abhyutthānam adharmasya tadātmānaḿ sṛjāmy aham"           
Meaning: Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of irreligion — at that time I descend Myself.


All believers of Sri Shirdi SaiBaba believe that he is one such Avatar..!

There is a Shidi Sai temple near my house where the miracle of manifestation of Vibhoothi,Kumkum,Chandan (Sandal Powder)  in abundance from the statue and on the floor happen frequently.
I have been fortunate enough to witness and photograph a few of such manifestations which are given below.

I can narrate one such incidence that took place in my presence.. -I could not see it happening in real time- I was involved in the temple cleaning Seva along with fellow devotees. I just picked up a chair in front of a portrait for cleaning and when I returned after 5 minutes with the cleaned chair to secure in its place, I saw vibhoothi all over the picture...!  Any trace of small doubt in my mind vanished at that moment..!
These manifestations have become so common place here by then that I did not bother go home to bring my camera for a snap..!

Sevaral devotees have experienced miracles in their life. All accounts of such experiences have been chronicled in the form of a book and is available with the temple. Several Sai devotees and Sadhus visit this temple from time to time. Visit the temple's website for more details. http://www.srisaiviboothibaba.org

Sri Nagarajan referred to fondly as Nagaraja Baba will narrate numerous miracles performed by Sri Shirdi Baba and Sri Vibhoothi baba in his life. I have seen and Known him for over a decade. A pure and genuine soul..! He tells that references to this temple are found in Nadi (predictions written in Palm leaves..- See wikipedia for more details on Nadi astrology) and this temple will attract thousands of people..!

The address of this temple is given in their website. However I will repeat is here

Of course any of the readers can contact me on my mobile 9840462783 or mail sridharan99@gmail.com for more details about this temple and whereabouts. I will be glad to be of assistance.

Temple timings Morning 4:30 to 9AM and Evening 5 to 8:30PM. As is the case with any other Shirdi Sai temple the 4 times Aarthi takes place here as well.

One can reach the temple by train or Bus. Get down at Chromepet. Take an auto to MC Nagar Sai baba Temple. It is about 3 kms from the station and the auto should cost about Rs 40/-
One can also take an auto from Tambaram Sanatorium Station.

If you can take a bus to Hasthinapuram, it is about a KM from there and autos are aplenty from the Hasthinapuram Bus stand.

Daily Annadhanam to poor is carried out in this temple..! Thursdays-this temple will wear a festive look..!

What else would be a more fitting way to start the new year for a Sai devotee than visiting a Sai Temple...
For Chennai devotees, this temple is only a couple of hrs away..!

Thanks to Chitra whose comment in one of the posts about a Shirdi Sai temple near her residence has been a catalyst for this post..!

Om Sri Sairam..!
