In understanding Baba's miracles, it's important to remember His own words on the subject: He says that in comparison with His true mission, His miracles are “like a mosquito on an elephant’s back.”  He repeats what Shirdi Sai Baba said so often: “I give them what they want, so they will want what I have to give!”  He says He has come not to manifest rings or bless us with promotions and healings - the purpose for His incarnation is to usher in a new age of Divine Peace on Earth, and establish divine qualities in our hearts:

“This Sai has come in order to achieve the supreme task of uniting the entire mankind as one family through the bond of brotherhood, of affirming and illumining the Atmic Reality of each being in order to reveal the Divine, which is the basis on which the entire Cosmos rests.  This Sai has come to instruct all to recognize the common Divine Heritage that binds man to man, so that man can rid himself of the animal and rise into the Divine, which is his goal.  This Sai has come to show that Love - Prema - is the easiest way to reach the Divine.”1

Baba says He has come to “avert the crisis that has come upon humanity”, and usher in a new age of divine wisdom upon the Earth, a golden age of Love, peace and understanding - and He assures us that He will succeed.  In the mid-1980’s He told His students that He would be working directly with the minds of Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev to bring about a change in the world.  I would guess it is no mere co-incidence that the fall of global communism occurred less than ten years after that statement was made!  (As Baba said in the ’70s when asked about Communism, “Communists?  Come you next!”)  Now Baba has thousands of devotees from the former communist nations, spreading His message of Divine Love where such words were forbidden for decades.  Surely Baba’s work has made the world a better place; the Earth, by His plan, grown a hair closer to Planet Peace.  Perhaps it will be with Prema Sai, Baba’s next incarnation - due to be born in some lucky South Indian manger around 2028 - that the global level of spiritual knowledge will reach critical mass, and the Earth and its atmosphere finally be divinely transformed, into a Paramatma-sphere.  May the day come soon!
