Here you can see that we are dealing with another Sai parasite, the name 'Saidas Baba' being about as close as one could get to Sai Baba (except that Saidas means servant of Sai!). For him, one 'Shris' is not enough, it seems!' His image combines Shirdi Sai Baba's headdress and Sathya Sai Baba's red kafni robe. Saidas Baba distinguishes himself in asking much more openly in public for donations than Sathya Sai Baba does. The copyist factor is visible throughout the propaganda below. It seems that he has positioned himself thus so as to be a contender to take over the top role when Sathya Sai vacates it?





Sri Saidas Baba was born on a Dusshera day in October 1940, Shirdi. He was brought up in Vyasa Ashram near Thirupathi and on in Shirdi. He is the Chairman of Sai Foundation which is dedicated to both the Shirdi Sai Samsthan of Shirdi and Satya Sai Organisation of Puttaparthi. There are branches of Sai Foundation in India, Kenya, UK, and USA. The temples and service centres that they established are known as Sai Dhams. Their flagship project is in Ujjain in India, and is Known as Prashanthi Dham. This Project includes an Ashram, a school, an orphanage, a destitute home and a hospital. The ashram is service oriented keeping in view the underprivileged section of socity. Sri Saidas Baba has been playing an active role in spreading the message of love and peace of Shirdi Saibaba and Sathya Saibaba.

Sai Foundation - India, was founded in 1993 after obtaining the Divine Blessings of Bhaghwan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, in person, on the trust deed during a function at the Super Speciality Hospital in Puttaparthi. Financial contributions, however small are welcome, for it is not the amount but the thought that counts.

You will be pleased to know that under the guidance of Gurudeva Sri Sai Das Babaji, Sai Foundation - India has decided to set up 'PRASHANTI DHAM'"on the banks of the holy river Kshipra at Ujjain, on the Ujjain-Indore Highway, (M.P.), India. This project is also Blessed by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Prashanti Dham will house as its focal point, the PRASHANTI SAI MANDIR dedicated to both Bhagawan Shirdi Sai Baba and Bhagawan Sathya Sai Baba. It will also house an orphanage, a school, a home for the aged destitute,and a hospital and an ashram.

The temple will be known as the Prashanthi Sai Mandir - dedicated to BOTH FORMS of the SAI AVTAR i.e. Bhagwan Shirdi Sai Baba and Bhagwan Sathya Sai Baba.Work on the construction of this temple has already started. The main aim of this mandir is to unite all devotees, to spread the message of love and peace throughout the world, to help them to perceive the true knowledge of life and purpose of existence through the rich heritage of the Saints and to set up Sai Dhams (temples dedicated to Sai) all over the world





The Ashram will house a school which will not only emphasise upon good education but will also lay stress on the development of good human beings, in the Divine presence of Saidas Babaji. The aim of the school will be not only good academic result but also purity of mind, compassion towards all God's creations and the love of God.

With the blessings of Sathguru Sri Saidas Babaji, the Foundation stone of the school was laid by the Hon'ble Vice-Chancellor of the Vikramaditaya University, Ujjain on 23rd November 2000, the 75th birthday of Bhagawan Sri Sri Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Some generous donors have offered to finance the entire project for the school building which is presently under construction. The whole concept will materialise shortly.
