Ay attempt to quantify Baba's Leelas would be height of ignorance, because the number and nature would be too large for human beings to comprehend. Presently the best published resources of Baba's Leelas are Sai Sacharitra by Hemad Pant and translation thereof by Indira Kher. Further three volumes by B.V. Narasimha Swami Ji, as also Sai Leela journal published from Shirdi are also a treasure-house of the miraculous happenings that occurred during his lifetime and thereafter. Actually, devotees have gained visions of Baba as also his blessings through prayers, after Baba's Samadhi in 1918, which have come to light in various publications.
The reader is bound to be curious as to where was the necessity of adding another book on the subject, while so many are available. The immediate answer to this query is that the writer felt a need to review and subjectively remind oneself of Baba's Leelas from time to time, in order to let the roots of 'Adhyatmik shraddha' go deep in one's consciousness. Thus there remains an urgent need to quickly refresh one's memory of Baba's Leelas as often as possible. Usually, from their earlier readings, devotees of Baba are aware of the rationale and significance of these leelas. The devotee therefore may not need to go through the commentary on Leelas time and again. In any case the regular 'parayana' of 'Sai Sacharitra' as a principle of 'Sai Bhakti' ought to be followed as often as there is a call from within.
This book therefore meets the need to glance at Baba's Leelas at one time or with short intervals without undergoing the reading of 300-900 pages. To that extent this writer's humble offering may be accepted as a book of solutions for our life's daily tests that we happen to face.
