1. Vijayadashmi is a big festival in Shirdi, venerated as a holy day when Shri Shirdi Sai Baba (September 28, 1835 to October __ 1918) left his mortal body. It is also known as Shirdi Vijayadashmi.

2. Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba has declared that the Shirdi Avatar was the first of a trilogy of Sai Avatars. The second, of course, is the current Sathya Sai Avatar, and the last would be the Prema Sai Avatar. Of the three, the Shirdi Avatar is the Prologue and the Prema Sai Avatar is the Epilogue to the Sri Sathya Sai Poorna Avatar.

It has further been revealed while Sathya Sai is an aspect of both; Shiva and Shakthi, the yet-to-come Prema Sai would be an aspect of Shakthi alone.

What aspect was Shirdi Sai Baba?
