Though not much is known about his early history, he is believed to have been born in the late nineteenth century. As a young child growing up in Bombay he would often run away from home and be found by his angry parents, meditating in a church. He left home at an early age and wandered around the whole of India on pilgrimage barefoot, it is believed some say five times, before settling in the village of Yeola where he locked himself in a room without food or water and meditated for 11 months. The door was eventually broken down by Muktananda, the Eat, Pray, Love Guru, a devotee of Nityananda Maharaj of Ganeshpuri, who told Babaji to go out into the world, gather devotees and spread his message to the world.
In 1986 a farmer, Damodar Punjaji, was just about to donate 3.5 acres of land close to Shirdi to the Sai Baba Temple Trust when he had a vision of Babaji in his fields. He followed his vision and climbed Ankai mountain where he found Babaji, sitting there in a cave. Babaji told him that instead of giving the land away, they themselves would build an ashram there where many people would come to experience Soul meditation.
Today the ashram is an incredible operation spreading over 11 locations in Maharashtra, Karnataka and Gujarat, with 15 schools, 20,000 school children, a hospital and hundreds of thousands of devotees regularly attending programs. The kitchens at the main ashram alone serve more than 40,000 meals a day, every day!
Babaji welcomes anybody to join him at the Shirdi ashram for meditation at anytime and for as long as they want.
