This name means, He who resides in the Parthi village. But, while addressing Baba thus, we must be conscious also of His omnipresence, His dwelling in all hearts. Baba wants that each one of us should purify the heart, so that He may manifest therein. He calls Himself, 'Your Hridayavasi', 'Your Indweller'. Still, since His physical presence and the boons of conversation with Him, touching His feet and darshan of His divine countenance are available most easily at Parthi or Puttaparthi, this name is included in the 108.
Baba has said, the Avathar happens in a place which is selected for its potentiality in radiating the message and its historic destiny. So, Parthi-Kshethra has mysterious inherent virtues which attracted God-head, which have won the grace of Baba to such an extent that He has chosen this place (where the birth took place) as the centre for His task. Baba has declared, "This Parthi will become another Tirupathi, another Mathura". While Krishna, Buddha and Sai Baba moved away from the place where they took birth, Baba has graciously made His birth-place the hub of the wheel of His universal faith of love. He has made Parthi or Puttaparthi immortal, shining in the list of holy places. Prashanthi Nilayam, His residence (Nivasa) is at Parthi Kshetra, holy place, and so He is addressed as HE WHO RESIDES (NIVASIN) AT PARTHI.
