Many Hindu devotees – including Hemadpant, who wrote the famous Shri Sai Satcharitra – consider him an incarnation of Lord Krishna while other devotees consider him as an incarnation of Lord Dattatreya.Saivites or worshipers of Lord Shiva consider Shirdi Sai, a formest siva-natha (Saivite Saint), or a Saint who has earned the most benevolent and auspicious grace of Lord Shiva the great god head of the holy trinity in Hinduism. Many devotees believe that he was a Satguru, an enlightened Sufi Pir, or a Qutub. No verifiable information is available regarding Sai Baba's birth and place of birth,
Sai Baba's real name is unknown. The name "Sai" was given to him upon his arrival at Shirdi, a town in the west-Indian state of Maharashtra. Mahalsapati, a local temple priest, recognized him as a Muslim saint and greeted him with the words 'Ya Sai!', meaning 'Welcome Sai!'. Sai orSayi is a Persian title given to Sufi saints, meaning 'poor one' However Sāī may also refer to the Sanskrit term "Sakshat Eshwar" or thedivine. The honorific "Baba" means "father; grandfather; old man; sir" in Indo-Aryan languages. Thus Sai Baba denotes "holy father", "saintly father" or "poor old man" (Reference)

Sai Baba's Quotes:

All action results from thought, so it is thoughts that matter. 

Man learns through experience, and the spiritual path is full of different kinds of experiences. He will encounter many difficulties and obstacles, and they are the very experiences he needs to 
encourage and complete the cleansing process. 

The life ahead can only be glorious if you learn to live in total harmony with the Lord. 

Man seeks to change the foods available in nature to suit his tastes, thereby putting an end to the very essence of life contained in them.

Do not be misled by what you see around you, or be influenced by what you see. You live in a world which is a playground of illusion, full of false paths, false values and false ideals. But you are not part of that world. 

What matters is to live in the present, live now, for every moment is now. It is your thoughts and acts of the moment that create your future. The outline of your future path already exists, for you created its pattern by your past. 

Let love flow so that it cleanses the world. Then man can live in peace, instead of the state of turmoil he has created through his past ways of life, with all those material interests and earthly ambitions.
