Things to buy in Shirdi are a limited few, as everything in Shirdi revolves around the great saint, Shirdi ke Sai Baba.The Shri Saibaba Sansthan temple complex in Shirdi is surrounded by many shops selling books, trinkets, souvenirs like little idols, laminated pictures and stickers all related to Sai Baba. The major shopping place in Shirdi is the Temple Road in Kopargaon. Few things that you must pick up while you are in Shirdi are mentioned below:

  • Shri Sai SatCharitra
    Sai Satcharitra is something that you must buy once you are in Shirdi, be it for yourself or to distribute among other new devotees. The advantage of purchasing this holy book from here is that you can sanctify it from the very temple where Baba presides. It is believed to be a very sacred practice to offer the book to people who needs it. Mostly among people who newly turn to devotees of The Shri Sai and want to learn more about His life and philosophies.
    It can be purchased at a nominal rate and usually people buy it in bulk from the shops in Shirdi.

  • Bibhuti from the Dhundi
    Bibhuti (ashes) from the Dhundi in Dwarkamai is distributed inside the temple complex in the Santhans office. This bibhuti is not really a thing to purchase because it is offered for free. It is a very sacred ash that is brought from the everlasting burning fire otr the Dhundi inside Dwarkamai.

  • Souvenirs
    Many other things like books, bhajan c.ds, effigies of Sai baba, pictures, clothes, shawls etc can be picked up as souvenirs from Shirdi.

Remember, Sai Baba always helped the poor and needy. He himself used to beg for alms, in return of which he would bless the donor. So, you too must try and dole out some to the poor. You can buy clothes and other at a nominal value from the shops at Shirdi that you may donate to the beggars.
