Chitirai Festival - May 1, 2017
Satya Vradha Pooja
Bhimaji Patil hailed from Maharashtra and was suffering from tuberculosis. He was treated by many doctors and took many medicines but to no avail. He came to know about Saibaba in Shirdi and visited him.
Ever since he had the darshan of Saibaba, Bhimaji Patil became his ardent devotee. Taking pity on his disciple, Saibaba decided to cure Patil of his disease.
On every No-Moon Day, Pariwar feeds a minimum of 500 people, poor and rich, with a square meal. Guruji is of the firm belief that feeding the poor on that day is what truly delights Sai Baba rather than the traditional pooja and abhishekam.
Every year on the month of May, the Pariwar celebrates the Chitra festival where we complete many charity activities such as:
1. Performing the wedding of one poor couple
2. Providing educational financial support to deserving students
3. Providing free medical assistance to poor devotees
4. Providing Annadhanam to over 3000 people.
