Masjid Mai Or Dwarkamai


Original picture of Sai Baba sitting with few devotees on the steps

The entrance of Sai Baba's Dwarkamai picture of those days


The entrance of Dwarkamai of Sai Baba as seen today

Masjid Mai as Sai Baba would call it is the place where Sai Baba spent most of his life. Darbar would be hold in the Masid Mai. Sai Baba performed many miracles. Miracles he performed out of love and care for his devotees whom he drew near him. Countless devotees benefited and still benefit from his great characteristics of performing miracles.

However the greatest miracle I feel is the miracle of sowing the seeds of Bhakti or devotion in the devotees. The closeness the devotees feel with him. The motherly figure of Sai Baba, who’s presence is always felt by his devotees, whenever he is needed. The grace-showering saint, known as Sai Baba, always eager to wash his devotee’s troubles and problems, used miracles and uses miracles to calm down his devotees and unburden them.

Sai Baba often used to say that those who climb the steps of Masjid Mai, the Dwarka Mai all their problems will be solved. He also often said that he is eager to take the burden of his devotees, if they surrender to him whole heatedly and cast their burden on him. Sai Baba kept the fire alive in the Masjid Mai, which he called Dhuni.

He said that the Dhuni was there to burn all the sins of His devotees. The Dhuni is still alive and burning the sins of the loved devotees of the great saint and unparalleled saint, called Sai Baba. If we visit Shirdi now the Dhuni has been covered by the grill, and at the end of the grill there are two small Padukas installed, this is the place where Sai Baba used to sit, near the Dhuni and work for the devotees and humanity in general.

Same place is a kundi where Sai Baba used to put the food he used to beg. And everybody the humans and the animals where allowed to partake from it. We can still see a kundi with some food in it. Just after that is a pot full of water,


from where the devotees can drink the water as prasad.

Nimbar in Dwarkamai of Sai Baba
There is a Nimbar in the west facing Mecca. Lamps were lightened and kept there by Sai Baba and still we can see the lamps there. This is the place where Sai Baba used to sleep with his head pointing towards the Nimbar, with Mahlsapati and Tatya as described in Sri Sai SatCharitra.

Baba also used to partake his food sitting here with his back towards the Nimbar and the devotees sitting in queue on both the sides. Also if we notice on the ceiling from here we can see the place where Sai Baba used to hand the wooden plank to sleep on it, as described in Sai Satcharitra, a great miracle in itself. Just in the corner after that is the grinding mill
Grinding Mill which Sai Baba used which Sai Baba sometimes used to grind the wheat, and besides it is the bag of wheat
Wheat Bag placed in Dwarka Mai Of Sai Baba which is changed once in a year by Shirdi SaiBaba Sansthan. In the corner by the grinding stone there is a cupboard where Sai Baba used to put his clay pipes he used to smoke tobacco.
Chillims of Sai Baba now we can see it in the museum in Shirdi


Portrait of Sai Baba by Jaykar on which Sai Baba commented " This Picture will live after me"

Today we can see the portrait of Sai Baba and Padukas installed in front of it where he generally used to sit

Baba used sit in front of Dhuni often with his arm kneeling on wooden rest. Here is placed a Painting of Sai Baba, which was painted by one devotee, named Jaikar. When this picture was brought to Sai Baba, he said “ This picture will live after me”.

Portrait of How Sai Baba used to sit in Dwarkamai

Sai Baba - I know you are with me, you have protected and comforted me through my bad times. But baba, I have prayed to you for so long and my wish still remains unfulfilled. You miraculously fulfil so many devotees' wishes, I keep questioning you why am I left out? I do have faith and therefore, with Shradha and Saburi, I await your call. Just that sometimes with time passing by, gets difficult to understand whether my wish will be true as you know baba, I have not asked for material items. I wait for my turn Baba, take care of my problem and answer me. Work a miracle Baba. Only a miracle from you will save me from this situation. I have nobody to turn to, and feel thrown off balance and left out. Help me baba.

It is heavely blessings from Sri Sai Nath
to have on line darshan every day and it is upto HIM to shower HIS blessing on us when right time comes to us. It is not a commercial comodity to get on bargaining.

Dear Sai Babaji,

Jai Sai Ram!

Honestly, Of late, I was pulled /dragged towards you for no reason and am transforming to a faithful and mad devotee of yours. In a meanwhile, very recently, I am physically unwell and have lost my peace of mind. Doctors have said that nothing is wrong with me. Only you will be knowing my problem/ illness. I believe that you have instructed me and pulled me towards yourself only to heal me from this suffering. I have now surrendered myself to you and beg you to save my life and relief from my illness. Please forgive me for any of the sins committed by me, if any, intentionally or unintentionally. I need your blessing to be with you always. I am sure you will bless me & my family with healthy mind & body /life - as you do to all your devotees.
