SAI BABA ASHRAM 'BRINDAVAN' at Whitefield, Bangalore
Photos taken between 1990 and 1994
The age old Chinese banyan tree under which Sai Baba gave darshan and where bhajans were held. Cut down in late 1990s.
The 'ladies' lines' or queue awaiting darsan. One can see that silence is not being observed, which was Sai Baba's advice
and notices proclaimed 'Silence' in the ashrams. Sai Baba was not in favour of casual acquaintances or talking, or even of having friends!
During darshan in March 1994.
