About Dhuni
For the last 153 years Sai Baba´s Dhuni (Sacred Fire) is perpetually burning in Dwarkamai in Shirdi. Dwarkamai is the mosque where Sai Baba lived during his sixty years of stay at Shirdi, and blessed his devotees with material and spiritual benefits.

Fire provides visual perception of energy of the universe manifested in the cosmic consciousness of everything that is born, sustained and eventually transformed to nothingness. Hence Dhuni is symbolic of burning down the sins to ashes and seeking refuge in the peerless Master. The sanctity of Sai Baba´s Dhuni are well established. Baba used to distribute the 'Udi', (remnant ash of this sacred fire) to all who came to seek Baba´s blessings. Even today the devotees who visit Shirdi seek this sacred ash for its healing powers.

SaiDhuni now brings the same sanctity to devotees through their mobile devices connected to the Internet.

In the 94th year of Sai Baba´s Samadhi let´s pledge to kindle a million lights dedicated to the original Dhuni and keep them burning across the world until eternity. Sign up today and be blessed.

History of Eternal Flames
Fire has been an important part of many cultures and religions, from pre-history to modern day, and was vital to the development of civilization. Fire is associated with the qualities of dynamism, strength, intensity and persistence. Fire represents the creativity and passion that all intellectual and emotional beings inherently possess. In traditional parlance the term ´firing up´ or ´keeping a flame burning´ is usually attributed to the fervor with which a cause or a relationship is pursued.

An eternal flame is a flame or torch that burns constantly. The flames that burned constantly have been archaic feature of divineness, spirituality, permanency and solidarity from times immemorial. Continually burning fire was a constant feature of every Greek temple. The Bible commands that "The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out", regarding the altar of the Tabernacle. (Leviticus 6:13, KJV) The eternal flame of the original Judaic Tabernacle is still celebrated as the present day Ner Tamid (eternal flame) that hangs above the Ark in every Synagogue, and the Christian Churches, particularly Catholic and Lutheran feature an eternal flame on or hung above their altars. An eternal flame constantly tended by a dedicated priest is a feature of Zoroastrian religious culture.
