Saibaba of Shirdi is revered as one of the greatest saints that India ever had. Worshipped as God incarnate, Saibaba had his sole mission to give blessings to one and all.
Sai Sandhya is performed to thank Sai for his blessings and all the love he has bestowed upon us. It is believed that one who approaches the Sai with a pure heart never returns empty handed.
There are distinct categories of singing styles prevalent in the diverse culture of India. Devotional songs in northern part of India fall into several popular categories like Bhajan, Quwali, Bhent, Mantra (snippets in sanskrit), Shlok (snippets in sanskrit and other languages), Kirtan etc.
In a Sai Sandhya, the Sai is invoked by singing aloud the devotional songs and invited to grace the gathering with his presence.
