Shri Sai Satcharitra is a discourse on the experiences devotees had with Shri Sai and the
preachings of Baba. Baba got it written through Shri Anna Saheb Dhabhlkar by giving inner
motivation to him. Baba had clearly told him: "I Myself write my own life. Hearing My
stories and teachings will create faith in devotees' hearts and they will easily get
self-realisation anb bliss...." (Shri Sai Satcharitra, Chapter 2)

The significance of Shri Sai Satcharitra is:

  2. This has been translated into many Indian languages and English language, which can be understood even by a common man.
  3. The Divine Truth imparted by this book is even greater than the knowledge contained in the Vedas and Gita, because all the characters and events in it are real and authentic and have been recorded in detail by many devotees.
