Sai Baba was an Indian spiritual master and was regarded as a fakir, saint or satguru by his devotees according to their preference. He was honoured by both Muslims and Hindus. His teachings combined the essence of both the religions of Islam and Hinduism. He lived in Shirdi and soon the villagers of Shirdi realized that he was not an ordinary fakir but an avatar of the top most categories. He demonstrated his Godly powers through Baba’s Leelas or Sai Baba miracles.
