ABOUT SATHYA SAI BABA
Sathya Sai Baba is the Avatar of our days living in the South India, in Puttaparti.
He was born in 1926 and named Sathya Narayana Raju.
At the age of 14, He told His parents that He would not go to school any more, because He knows everything. He told that He is an incarnation of well known in India Muslim saint Sai Baba (Baba means Father in Sanskrit). This saint lived in the place called Shirdi and leaved His body 8 years before Sathya Sai Baba was born. Sathya Sai Baba told also that He wanted to leave the home in order to dedicate His life to helping people, preaching the Truth about God, about the Way of attainment of the Highest Freedom in Mergence with Him.
His years of childhood and adolescence are described in detail in the remarkable book
by Samuel Sandweiss
Sathya Sai. The Holy Man and the Psychiatrist; so, everyone interested can find this information in it.
All preaching activity of Sathya Sai Baba is accompanied by His demonstration of miracles.
He did this even in school years: He materialized sweets, pencils, rulers, and so on. He won easily in running among His coevals by transporting instantly His body from the start to the finish.
In the following years, He converted adult atheists to believers, for example, by materializing in front of them, sitting at the table, the dishes which were “ordered” mentally by every one of them.
As the preaching activity of Sathya Sai Baba developed, a group of devoted followers gathered around Him; an ashram was built, where pilgrims could stay. Support of financiers and entrepreneurs made it possible to create in India a network of medical and educational institutions supervised by Sathya Sai Baba, to begin publishing books. Thanks to books and films, the name of Sathya Sai Baba is well known now on all continents; He has millions of followers.
