A scientist named Dr. Baranowski, Professor of Physics at the University of Arizona and a specialist in Kirlian photography, once came to see Sai Baba. (Kirlian photography, or ‘biomagnetic field radiation photography’, is done with a special camera which photographs the energy bands around living beings; different colors in the biomagnetic field correspond to different emotional qualities.  To quote Baranowski, “When a person is full of love the aura around him is blue and when the love is pronounced, it becomes pink.”)  Baranowski had scientifically trained himself to see auras, and with this trained vision was investigating the various holy men of India.  Some years ago he gave a talk at the Prashanti Nilayam ashram on his experiences with Sai Baba.  Some excerpts: 

“I have met over a hundred holy men in India.  Too many of these holy men are involved in their own personal egos.  Their auras show mostly concern for themselves and their institutions.  So [their auras] are only a foot broad or perhaps two feet. 

“I am not a devotee.  I have come here as a scientist, to see this man Sai Baba.  I saw him on Sunday, on the balcony giving darshan to the devotees singing below.  The aura Baba projected was not that of a man.  The white was more than twice the size of any man’s, the blue was practically limitless, and there were gold and silver bands beyond even those, far behind this building right up to the horizon.  There is no scientific explanation for this phenomenon.

“His aura is so strong that it is affecting me standing by the chair on which He is sitting.  I can feel the effect and I’ve to wipe my arm, off and on, as you must have noticed.  It is very difficult for me to admit.  I am a scientist.  I have given over six thousand lectures in all parts of the world but for the first time, believe me, my knees are shaking.  The aura that emanates from Baba shows His Love for you. . . .  If ever I can use the phrase that I have seen ‘love walking on two feet,’ it is here.” 

At this point Dr. Baranowski concluded his talk, and Sai Baba then delivered a discourse.  When Baba had finished, Baranowski asked for permission to address the audience again.  

“I have been watching Baba, while He was addressing you.  The pink aura that was manifesting was so vast and strong that it went even beyond the hall behind this chair.  It filled this big hall, embracing all of you gathered here. . .    I have watched Him for a week now, as He walked among you, morning and evening.  I have seen His aura, pink in colour, go into the person He is talking to, or touching and returning to Him. . . His energy seems to be endless. . .  In my estimation, He is exactly what He appears to be - LOVE.  That is what He is.”1
