His Stay in Shirdi and Probable Birth-date
None knew or knows the parents and exact date of birth of Sai Baba; but it can be approximately determined by His stay in Shirdi. Baba first came to Shirdi, when he was a young lad of sixteen and stayed there for three years. Then, all of a sudden He disappeared for some time. After some time, He reappeared in the Nizam state near Aurangabad, and again came to Shirdi, with the marriage-party of Chand Patil, when He was twenty years old. Thence, He stayed in Shirdi for an unbroken period of sixty years, after which Baba took His Maha-Samadhi in the year 1918.
From this we can say that the year of Baba’s birth is approximately 1838 A.D.
