Sri Sathya Sai Baba Articles

  The World Teacher

At Puttaparthi, a remote village in Southern India, is a spiritual centre known as Prashanthi Nilayam, the abode of “Perfect Peace”. It is to this place that throngs pf God-thirsty people come annually, to absorb the vital energies and to receive the blessing of a Great Soul who is unique in our times.

His name is Sri Sathya Sai Baba (born 23rd November, 1926) and his followers number in the millions. They consider Him to be more than a saint or sage. To them he is the Avatar; a divine being who has come to earth to fulfil a cosmic mission. Sathya means truth, Sai is a Persian word for Saint and Baba is a Hindu term of endearment and respect meaning, roughly, revered father.

Amazing Person

This amazing person receives His devotees with love, performs miracles for them, sustains their faith, gives helpful advice and encourages them to uphold the Dharma, the creative law of life upon which civilization is supported. He stands just over five feet tall, has brilliant brown eyes and a voice which is sweet and gentle while it conveys the authority of inward knowledge.
At the age of seven, He began to compose religious songs which were performed at festivals. A year or two later, He began to materialise things out of the air for his playmates, usually producing candy or fruits. When He was fourteen, His full power and glory began to emerge and he announced His mission. To His sister-in-law, He said, “My devotees await me!”

Highest Regard

Since then His fame has increased greatly. A large and attractive ashram has been built in Puttaparthi, more than 3000 Sathya Sai Organisations have been built and wherever Baba speaks, the audience number in the hundreds of thousands. He is held in the highest regard by government leaders and the nation’s educators because of their efforts to raise the moral and spiritual standards of the masses.
Groups have also been formed in United Kingdom, Europe, America, Asia and the Pacific for the purpose of spreading Baba’s work and to offer regular scheduled meditation, chanting sessions and opportunities to serve Humanity. Books, recording and films are being received by seekers all over the world as the spiritual impulse from Prashanthi Nilayam steadily infiltrates the consciousness of men and women who are spiritually ready for Baba’s message.

Spiritual Moral Law

And what is this message? “I have come,” Baba declares, “to establish the spiritual and moral law once again.” “This is the avowed purpose of every Avatar in age past – to be a manifestation of the Divine Will and to contribute to the evolutionary thrust.
Sathya Sai Baba is known to have performed genuine miracles. To Him, miracles are but the effects of His understanding of natural laws. It is true that He materialises objects to build the faith of seekers; rings, prayer beads, sacred ash (Vibhuti), photographs, copies of the Gita, statues of gods and even food. He does it “by an act of will”. His greatest miracles are the transformed lives of people who come often with doubts, and leave with love in their hearts and resolve to live a higher, better life.
