Sri Shirdi Sai Baba, a personification of spiritual perfection and an epitome of compassion, lived in the little village of Shirdi in the state of Maharashtra (India) for sixty years. Like most of the perfect saints he left no authentic record of his birth and early life before arriving at Shirdi. In fact, in the face of his spiritual brilliance such queries do not have much relevance.
Sai Satcharitra Sai Satcharitra is the original work of Shri Hemadpant in Marathi. The following translation consists of 50 Chapters.

Shej Aarti (Night Aarti)
In the days when Shri Sai Baba was physically living in Dwarkamai Masjid, he used to sleep in Chawri on every alternate night, between the year 1910 to 1918. This sojourn at Chawri on every alternate night was preceded by a ‘palki’ procession with all regal paraphernalia accompanying Baba from Dwarkamai to Chawri.
This tradition of ‘palki’ procession continues with the same fervour and devotion. Today it starts from Samadhi Mandir, which is the eternal abode of Shri Sai in ‘Samadhi’. From Samadhi temple it goes to Dwarkamai Masjid, from Dwarkamai to Chawri and returns to Samadhi Mandir, after which the ‘Shej Aarti’ is offered to Him.
