In the Bhagavad Gita, it is said that Om is name of the Supreme Lord. It is sound vibration of God ‘s energy.
Bhagavad Gita 7.8

raso ‘ham apsu kaunteya
prabhasmi sasi-suryayoh
pranavah sarva-vedesu
sabdah khe paurusam nrsu

Translation of Bhagavad Gita 7.8
O son of Kunti (Arjuna), I am the taste of water, the light of the sun and the moon, the syllable om in the Vedic mantras; I am the sound in ether and ability in man.

OM (also spelled AUM) a Hindu sacred sound that is considered the greatest of all mantras. The syllable OM is composed of the three sounds A-U-M (in Sanskrit, the vowels ‘A’ and ‘U’ combine to become ‘O’) and the symbol’s threefold nature is central to its meaning. It represents several important triads:
• The Trailokya/three worlds – Earth, Atmosphere, and Heaven
• The Supreme Trinity– Brahma (The Creator), Vishnu (The Preserver), and Shiva (The Destroyer)
• The three Kala/Time – Bhoota kala (past), Bhavya kala (present) and Vaikunta kala (future)
SAI may also refer to the Sanskrit term “Sakshat Eshwar” or the divine. AUM or Om can be translated as “I Am Existence”, a sacred invocation to be uttered at the beginning and end of a reading of the Veda or prior to any prayer or mantra. The Māndukya Upanishad is entirely devoted to the explanation of the syllable which consists of three phonemes, a Vaishvanara, Hiranyagarbha and Iswara, which symbolize the beginning, duration, and dissolution of the universe and the associated Gods Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva, respectively.
Shirdi Sai is the Satguru or the divine one where the Gods Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva reside within. Baba in his sayings said, “Trust in ME and YOUR Prayer shall be answered”. By pleasing the Satguru with your prayer you are pleasing the Gods.
While visiting Shirdi, one experiences complete peace of mind, a strong self-confidence, and a great sense of purpose. Baba’s Shirdi is one place where even today all his devotees come with empty hands but filled with Hope, and go back “Blessed with Contentment with an Everlasting Smile on their faces”.

Hemadpant described the Story told by BABA himself to Mrs Radhabai Deshmukh in the Chapter 19 of Sai Satcharita which signifies the importance of Firm faith (Shraddha) and Patience or Perseverance (Saburi). The story narrated by BABA himself:
“Oh Mother, I tell you my own story which if you listen carefully, will do you good. I had a Guru who was a great Saint and most merciful. I served him long, very long; still he would not say any Mantra into My ears. I had a keen desire, never to leave him but to stay with and serve him; and at all costs receive some instructions from him. But he had his own way. He first got my head shaved and asked me two paise or pice (coins) as Dakshina. I gave the same at once. If you say that as my Guru was perfect, why should he ask for money and how should he be called desireless? I replied plainly that he never cared for coins. What had he to do with them? His two pice (coins) were (1) Firm Faith and (2) Patience or perseverance. I gave these two pice or things to him, and he was pleased.
“I resorted to my Guru for 12 years. He brought me up. There was no dearth of food and clothing. He was full of love nay; he was love incarnate. How can I describe it? He loved me most. Rare is a Guru like him. When I looked at him, he seemed as if he was in deep meditation, and then we both were filled with Bliss. Night and day, I gazed at him with no thought of hunger and thirst. Without him I felt restless. I had no other object to meditate nor any other thing than my Guru to attend. He was my sole refuge. My mind was always fixed on him. This is one pice Dakshina. Saburi (Patience or perseverance) is the other pice. I waited patiently and very long on my Guru and served him. This Saburi will ferry you across the sea of this mundane existence. Saburi is manliness in man, it removes all sins and afflictions, gets rid of calamities in various ways, casts aside all fear and ultimately gives you success. Saburi is the mine of virtues, consort of good thought. Nishtha (Faith) and Saburi (Patience) are like twin sisters, loving each other very intimately.”
“My Guru never expected any other thing from me. He never neglected me but protected me at all times. I lived with him and was sometimes away from him; still I never felt the want or absence of his love. He always protected me by his glance just as the tortoise feeds her young ones whether they are near her or away from her on the other side of the river bank by her loving looks. Oh mother, my Guru never taught me any Mantra, then how shall I blow any Mantra in your ears? Just remember that Guru’s tortoise-like loving glance gives us happiness. Do not try to get Mantra or Upadesh from anybody. Make me the sole object of your thoughts and actions; and you will no doubt attain Paramartha (the spiritual goal of life). Look at me whole-heartedly and I in turn will look at you similarly. Sitting in this Masjid I speak the truth nothing but the truth. No Sadhanas nor proficiency in the six Shastras, are necessary. Have faith and confidence in your Guru. Believe fully that Guru is the sole Actor or Doer. Blessed is he who knows the greatness of his Guru and thinks him to be Hari, Hara and Brahma (Trimurti) Incarnate.”
