The three-day Ramnavami festival is being celebrated with fervour at the Saibaba temple here.

As part of the celebrations, a Saibaba palkhi and procession was taken out from Dwarkamai Shri Saibaba Sansthan Trust. The ‘samadhi’ temple of Saibaba was illuminated and decked up for the occasion.

At least 200 palakhis from different parts of the country and lakhs of Saibaba devotees have arrived in Shirdi for the festival, sources said.

After the Aurangabad bench of the Bombay high court had given an interim stay on the government-appointed 16-member trustees on March 27, a three-member committee, headed by principal district judge Jayant Kulkarni took charge of Trust last evening.

Lakhs celebrate Ram Navami at Shirdi

Ignoring the politics and controversy revolving around appointment of trustees at the Shri Sai Baba Sansthan Trust, Shirdi, devotees in lakhs celebrated the Ram Navami festival in gaiety and faith.
The three-day Ram Janmotsav festival in Shirdi was started by Sai Baba himself in 1911 and the festival is now in its 101st year of celebration.

The festival began on Saturday with innumerable palkhis and padyatras (pilgrims on foot) arriving in Shirdi from all corners of the state and some parts of the country.

As is the trend, most of the pilgrims came from Mumbai and so the trust made arrangements for water and first aid at five places on Mumbai-Shirdi Road. Pilgrims also came from Pune, Nashik, Kopargaon, Surat and other places. They were all offered free lunch by the trust.

The festival began on Saturday with the ritualistic recitation of the ‘Sai Satcharitra’ the book on the life of Sai Baba.

Kakadaarti was performed at 4 am. District judge and chairman of the three-member committee appointed to oversee the working of the trust after the high court put an interim stay on the new board, Jayant Kulkarni and his wife Anuradha performed the pooja at the samadhi. After the kakadaarti, a procession of the ‘Sai Satcharitra’ and the padukas of Sai Baba was taken out in a palkhi from Dwarkamai to the main temple.

Kirtans, bhajans, discourses and pooja were organised as part of the festival

The Kawadidharak i.e people carrying pots of water on foot from places also arrived in Shirdi. About 4,500 people brought water from different rivers to perform the abhishek at the samadhi. All of them were welcomed by the trustees.

As is the tradition, a bag of wheat kept at Dwarkamai was replaced with a new one, which was first prayed to at the Samadhi temple.

About 80,000 devotees were provided prasad by the trust.
In the evening, a chariot procession in Shirdi captivated the lakhs of devotees present. The temple was kept open through the night to enable the devotees seek darshan. The festival will end on Monday
