SRI SAI BABA FESTIVALS - RAMNAVMI | GURUPURNIMA | VIJAYADASHMI

The three main festivals in shirdi are of three to four days each. They are Ramnavmi (March/April), Gurupornima (July) & Vijayadashmi (September). These festivals are celebrated with great passion, verve & heartfullness. Thousands flock to bathe in the grace which seems to flow especially freely at such time. There is a programme of puja, music(bhajan) public parayana(reading of scriptures & devotional texts) & exuberant processions with the palanquin & the Chariot. The Samadhi Mandir remains open all night during one of these days with Dwarakamai being open the previous night & there are all night bhajan & qawali sessions at various locations in the village. Printed programmes with full details are available at the Shri Saibaba Sansthan trust's office.
