Shree Saisaccharit

Shree Saisatcharit authored by Shree Hemadpant is an infinite treasure filled with tremendous and invaluable strength for all Sai bhaktas (followers).

In the first section of Shreemad Purushartha Grantharaj (holy scriptures)-Satyapravesh, Sadguru Shree Aniruddha writes, “Shree Saisatcharit is not just about the life and times of Shree Sainath, but it is the history of how all bhaktas, who came in close contact with Him, could receive the grace of Sadguru Shree Sainath.”

Panchasheel Exam

For the greatest benefit of devotees, Shri Sai himself created this, His own Life story and holding his hand in his own, got Hemad to write out the story.   [Verse 213]

Many were highly astonished, when Sadguru Shree Aniruddha announced to conduct Panchasheel examinations based on Shree Saisatcharit.  ‘How will this exam be?’, ‘What could  be its nature?’ and ‘How much response would it receive?’ were several questions that cropped up. However, Sadguru Shree Aniruddha explained that this examination and its study  is  not meant to  gain knowledge, but is actually to help understand how one can worship, follow  and progress the path of Bhakti  and in the process, improve the quality of his life, enrich it by getting rid of wrong  things and thoughts.

How to appear for the Exam

These examinations are conducted once in every six months - in February and in August. There are no enrollment fees for these examinations. The questionnaire is published in Marathi and other regional languages in the newspaper, “Dainik Pratyaksha”, started by Sadguru Shree Aniruddha.   

The candidates appearing for this exam are supposed to pick the reference to the context from the tales and characters from the Saisatcharit, the teachings from those lessons and also from the glory of Shree Sainath.
