Shirdi Sai Baba Holy Bath (Abishek)
Shirdi Sai Baba Holy Bath (Abishek)
Every Guru Day (Thursday), we generate positive energy as we perform a Holy Bath to Shirdi Sai Baba. This ritual washes away negativity, refreshes our soul’s energy and brightens our mood. Our worship begins with Baba’s Holy Bath (Abishek) followed by a Holy Flame Ritual (Arathi) and singing a devotional song of the 108 Holy Names of Shirdi Baba (Stotram). We end the worship with a daily reading from the “Sri Sai Satcharitra: The Wonderful Life and Teachings of Shirdi Sai Baba” by Hemadpant, a Modern Rendering by Mataji. Baba’s Abishek and morning worship is a powerful way to receive his help for whatever is troubling you and to start the day with positive energy.
“IF A MAN UTTERS MY NAME WITH LOVE, I SHALL FULFILL ALL HIS WISHES, AND INCREASE HIS DEVOTION. AND IF HE SINGS EARNESTLY OF MY LIFE AND MY DEEDS, I SHALL SURROUND HIM IN FRONT AND BACK, AND ON ALL SIDES.”
- SHIRDI SAI BABA
While joining by live broadcast, look at Baba’s eyes when the liquids are being poured. You will receive the most energy by having your eyes open and watching the combination of elements working together. Imagine that the milk and water are being poured over you, washing away any heart pain, illness, sadness, and removing obstacles.
Positive vibrations radiate out to everyone who watches Baba’s Holy Bath – whether by live streaming or in person. The positive vibrations bless the entire atmosphere reaching you wherever you are.
Through the Shirdi Sai Baba Holy Bath, we use our eyes to receive the highest healing energy as we watch the water element in the form of water, milk and rosewater, being poured over Baba. As the water is being poured, imagine the water is being poured over you and any frustrations, fears, and negativity is being washed away. When the milk is being poured, envision what you need and all of the beautiful things you want to create in your life. As Baba is being dressed, imagine you are being dressed to go out into the world with your prayers answered. When we chant the 108 Holy Names of Shirdi Sai Baba (Stotram), we are praising Baba and raising our consciousness to experience these divine qualities within ourselves.
Shirdi Sai Baba is the Father and Grandfather for all the world. Baba is an incarnation of Dattatreya (Datta) and carries Datta’s energy. He is always looking out for us, protecting us, guiding us, loving us. Like any Father, Baba wants a relationship with his children. All he asks is that we think of him. When we focus on Baba, he is there. Cast your problems to him; he will take care. Anything is possible for Baba. He is eager for you to benefit from this powerful soul-washing process.

“If you hear Baba’s leelas daily, you will always see him. Day and night you will remember him in your mind. When you absorb Baba in this way, your mind will lose its fickleness and if you continue in this manner it will finally merge in pure consciousness.” — Sri Sai Satcharitra
