What is the Meaning of ‘Sai Baba’?

February 28, 2012 · 15 comments

Sai Baba is nothing but Sa = Sakar / sagunaroop-dhari + i = Ishwar i.e. Actual sagunaroop of Ishwar. Sai Baba is Live Shiva and Mata Parvati – Devi. He is one in all and all in one. He is the repository of all auspicious omens on this planet, munificent donor of all sacred blessings, and the benevolence incarnate. Sai baba is and was a eliminater of evils, propeller of genuis, promoter of achievements and saviours of devotees. He is Pragya Dham of Vishwa Mata Gayatri Mata. Lord Sai is Father and Mother for all of us. One day a man asked Sai Baba, meaning of “Sai”, so Baba said, This name “SAI” is made of two terms: – “SA” and “I”:

  • SA” means Divine
  • I” is the symbolic representation of motherhood.
  • Baba” means father.

In short, “Sai Baba” means “Divine Parents”. Literally “Sai” is taken from the Sanskrit term “swami”, meaning Lord or Master and Baba means father or protector. So whole term mean “Protector or Master Father“.

Those are all parables. Many of the details Baba himself has given about his life are meant to be allegorical. Sai means saint in Marathi but it derives from Dari Persian (the language of the chishti Sufi order) via Sindhi. The word didnt become standard Marathi until after Baba’s mahasamadhi. साई is a corruption of Sindhi سائیں (साईं) which itself is a corruption of Dari Persian ساعیه which means literally “of or relating to shadow” and figuratively “patron”, “protector” or “saint”. This borrowing pattern is the same as Dari “sāyeh” (shadow) to Rajasthani “sāyāN” and Hindi “sāyā”. So technically the way his name was originally said is साईं and it originally meant “Saint father.”

एक बहुत ही महत्वपूर्ण जानकारी है आप लोग इसे सबके साथ जरूर शेयर करें आजकल जिनकी अन्धभक्ति बढ़ रही उनका नाम है “साईबाबा” साई का मतलब होता है मुस्लमान फ़क़ीर यह बात बड़े स्पष्ट शब्दों में साईभक्ति आंदोलन कि शुरवात दुबारा करने करने वाले श्री बी.वि.नरसिम्हास्वामी कि लिखी पुस्तक “Life of Sai baba” के चैप्टर ३ और पेज न.१६ पर लिखी है.इस बात को श्री दाभोलकर लिखित मराठी श्री साई सत्चरित में कई बार स्वीकार कि गयी है कि बाबा अपने जीवनकाल में एक “मुसलमान फ़क़ीर” के रूप में ही प्रसिद्ध थे उनका हिन्दुकरण उनकी मृत्यु के पश्चात् ही हुआ और “साई” (बिना बिंदी का) को हिंदुओं में प्रचलित शब्द “साईं” (बिंदी के साथ) जो संस्कृत का शब्द है इसका मतलब है “साक्षात् भगवान” के साथ बदल दिया गया.साई प्रचारकों ने हिंदुओं को भ्रमित करने के लिए इस कूटनीति का उपयोग किया.साईभक्तों से अनुरोध है कि वे उन्हें साईबाबा(बिना बिंदी के) से ही बुलाये तभी आप उनका सही नाम लेते हैं,और इस अन्धश्रद्धा का विरोध करने वालों से अनुरोध है कि इसकी जानकारी जितने ज्यादा लोगों को दे सकते हैं दे
