Shirdi Sai Baba Centre Offers Free Meals


The Shirdi Sai Baba Society’s centre at Jalan Sultan Iskandar provides free meals to about 150 devotees and visitors daily. On Saturdays the number is usually doubled. The centre is the performing of annadhanam or offering.

The centre’s co-ordinator S. Ramesh said they provide breakfast, lunch or dinner to anyone who walks in.

Lunch and dinner consists of rice, two vegetables and dhal curry, and breakfast is pongal, a form of sweet rice; devotees also bring home-made cookies. Food is served after poosai or prayer. The centre employs full-time cooks to prepare the food.

The scheme was started by S.P. Kannan, Chairman of the Society, about 6 months ago. This is a self-supporting scheme and the devotees and well-wishers donate all the items required. Individuals also sponsor meals, known as ubayam to celebrate wedding anniversaries, birthdays and other auspicious days. A notice board is placed in the hall to indicate the items urgently required.

  1. Om Sai Ram. I would like to thank the management of this center for the daily meal served. It is a good seva and may baba bless all of you.

  2. Hi, I would like to celebrate my daughter Akshaya’s 3rd birthday in your centre. Would you please advice me if this is possible? How much we have to pay and how to go about it?

  3. Dear Irene and Hubby, my best wishes and happy 22nd wedding anniversary. Sai Baba used to advise his rich devotees not to waste their money in gratification of senses but to use it for some good cause. ” Wealth will be of use to wealthy persons only through charity. The fruits of charity only lead to real spiritual knowledge.
    The center in Ipoh is at 22,24 & 26, Jalan Sultan Iskandar ( Hugh Low Street), 30000 Ipoh.

  7. OM SAI RAM * This is the only House of Divine that offers 3 meals in a day in Ipoh.

    It makes sure that none of the Baba’s devotees leaves the centre with an empty stomach.

    I am ‘HUMBLY’ asking all the devotees to please donate some cash to this centre whenever you are at the centre, at least RM 1 per person.
    If you don’t have this ‘practice’, please start doing so.
    I am not in the committee or the management, I am asking sincerely from all my brothers,sisters, aunties and uncles to contribute to ‘our’ centre so that many more charity based activities or programmes could be undertaken at ‘our’ centre. Thank you. ‘OM SAI RAM’

  8. I know about it and I think they are doing great job. The meal they are giving for free is called Prasad of Sai and people feel blessed by eating it.
