Saibaba has spent his entire twelve years along with his Guru only on a pit, and he used to come out from the pit, only occasionally for the purpose of gathering food and water for him and his Guru. As per the wordings of Sri Saibaba, his Guru, Sri Venkusa used to appear only in a half-dressed state, but he contains a smiling face. He used to wear only dhoti, and would never wear clothes on the upper portion of his body. He contains merciful eyes, and he used to always keep chanting the divine Rama Mantra, “JAI SRI RAMA”. Venkusa also insisted his disciple Saibaba to celebrate the “SRI RAMA NAVAMI FESTIVAL”, in a grand manner in his future life. That’s why after becoming a permanent resident of Shirdi, Saibaba began to regularly celebrate the “SRIRAMA NAVAMI FESTIVAL”, in a grand manner. And sometimes, he used to offer the holy Prasad of Lord Rama to the devotees from his own hands.
Sri Venkusa is also considered to be an aspect of god, and he used to affectionately call Saibaba as “OH MY DEAR BETA”, which means my affectionate son.
It is also believed that after the completion of his life time, due to his highly meditative powers, Sri Venkusa had attained salvation. We can also worship the great Saint Venkusa along with Sri ShirdiSai Baba by chanting his Mantra, “OM SRI VENKUSAINATHAYA NAMAHA”.
