Saibaba in the company of devotees and fakirs used to dance and sing in divine bliss, with small tinklets tied around his ankles. Songs he song were mostly in Persian or Arabic or sometimes some popular songs of Kabir
Saibaba had a profound love and compassion for suffering humanity. The master used to personally attend to the needs of the sick as a physician and a nurse.

Saibaba distributed the holy ‘Udi’ – the panacea for all troubles – to his bhaktas. ‘Udi’ is the ash from the perpetual sacred fire – Dhuni – lit by Baba a hundred years ago. The Udi is the token of his divine grace to all who come to him for help
