The Sri Sai Satcharitra ("The pure life and proper conduct of Lord Sai '), here in the translation by V. Gunaji uit 1947, is the best-known biography of Shirdi Sai Baba, by his follower Hemadpant.
In 1926, eight years after the passing of Shirdi Sai Baba, completed his follower Hemadpant the stories 'Sri Sai Satcharitra'. It was a book in devotional style, with verses in the traditional 'Ovi' meter. Shirdi Sai had personally commanded him to collect these stories, and told him that his life story would write itself through Hemadpant.
For Sai Baba it must have been that this project was undertaken important, because he laid there several times stressed that the positive emotions that the sincere listener experience, the listener will elevate and liberate. It is typical of Sai Baba: it was him therefore not to spread his own fame, but to elevate his devotees.
Hence the Sri Sai Satcharitra not aloof or scientifically biography has become. Hemadpant gives the stories of devotees called no-frills again, but often confusing and touching stories and the bargain calls Hemadpant the reader repeatedly to surrender to Lord Sai.
The Sri Sai Satcharitra is generally recommended to read in seven days. Hence the name "Seven Days Shirdi Sai '.
All these stories are also in translation in the book 'backZeven dagen Shirdi Sai’.
