Another tradition in Shirdi

    There are a few traditions that started during Baba's stay in Shirdi and are still followed in service of Baba by Shri Sai Baba Sansthan, Shirdi. Prominent among the traditions are "daily offerings by Abdul Baba's and Boraoke families", "palaki procession every Thursday", "jholi parampara in mahasamadhi", "ramanavami and urs tradition" and others.

    Abdul Baba was one of the few lucky persons to be in close proximity of Shri Sainath. It was Abdul Baba's duty so to speak to take care of all personal needs of Shri Sainath and do daily cleaning of the masjid and other articles used by Baba in addition to Radhakrishna mai, Bhagoji Shinde and others. Abdul Baba was also one of Baba's errand boys.

    After Baba's mahasamadhi, Abdul Baba used to take full care of the samadhi and the surroundings daily for a period of eight years before formation of Shri Sai Baba Sansthan. Abdul Baba continued his service to Baba till his own passing away.

    One of the things he used to do was offer flowers every day on the samadhi. Similarly Borakoke saheb from Kopergaon also used to offer flowers daily to Sainath. That traditon continues even today where in the grand children of both the families offer flowers grown in their own gardens every day morning at the Samadhi between 9 am and 10 am. At the time of offering the darshan queues are stopped and the area around the samadahi is cleaned and then they are allowed to finish their offerings in the traditional way as offered by their grand parents.
