Today Chaitra Sh Dwitiya 9th April 2016 is the incarnation day of shri Swami Samarth Maharja of Akkalkoat. our Beloved Guru Shri SAI BABA is considered as Incarnation of shri SAI Swami Samarth of Akkalkoat .(as mentioned in shri SAI Satcharitra)
Shri Swami Samarth (also called Sri Akkalkot Swami Samarth) is considered as extension of the fifteenth century incarnation of Lord Dattatreya, namely Shrimad Narasimha Saraswati.
It is mentioned in the holy book of Shri Gurucharitra that Shrimad Narasimha Saraswati entered into mahasamadhi in Kardalivana in 1458. He stayed in Samadhi for over 300 years and emerged from samadhi because a woodcutter accidentally cut through a tree and hit Shrimad Narasimha Saraswati (or Sri Swami Samarth). This awakened Shrimad Narasimha Saraswati from the prolonged samadhi. That divine personality is now known as Shri Swami Samarth. After emerging from samadhi Shrimad Narasimha Saraswati (Shri Swami Samarth) traveled all over the country.
Shri Swami Samarth lived for over two decades (22 years) at Akkalkot, mainly at the residence of his disciple Cholappa, where his Samadhi and shrine are now located.
Another abhang says His mantra is “Shri Swami Samarth Jai Jai Swami Samarth” (This is one of the most popular mantras of Swami Samartha)
ri Swami Samarth was an epitome of wisdom and knowledge and is considered an Avadhoot: Maha-Yogi possessing great spiritual powers.
He was always muttering mystic ‘Mantras’ or words that very few could understand. He expressed oneness with all creations. The splendor of Shri Swami Samarth and his glorious mission became more fully manifest, after his arrival in town of Akkalkot in Maharashtra.
Sri Swami stayed in Akkalkot, for 22 years till his Mahasamadhi, showing the common man the path to the God. Swami Samarth is known to have performed several miracles for his devotees.
Hundreds of devotees continue to have miraculous experience about the Perfect Master even today. But his miracles and those of Shri Sainath are so alike that one would be drawn to the conclusion that they are not two masters but are one, and the ONLY ONE TRUTH.
