Preface

In his letter of 25th May 1947 Sathya Sai Baba wrote to his brother thus: "No one can comprehend my glory, whoever he is, whatever his method, howerver long his attempt." He was hardly twentyone and those words might have sounded audacious then. But over the next sixty years they have been proved absolutely true. For, despite many efforts none has been able to comprehend the mysteries and miracles of Sri Sathya Sai. In that very letter he also wrote: "I have a ‘vow’: to lead all who stray away from the straight path, again into goodness, and save them. I am attached to a ‘work’ that I love: to remove the sufferings of the poor and grant them what they lack. I have a reason to be proud, for, I rescue all who worship and adore me right." Those were brave words. Yet, over the years they have proved to he true. They, in brief, describe his mission. This book endeavours to describe how Sathya Sai Baba has been going along achieving his mission. Through our own experiences, as contained in this book, we try to measure the immeasurable.

Baba often says: "I am a silent listener to your conversation and an unseen guest at your table." I would go a little further so as to assert that he is verily the indweller of our hearts and minds and thus is fully aware of our feelings and thoughts. I cite a case here. In early March of 2006 terrorists caused an explosion in the precincts of the Sankat Mochan Temple of Varanasi. Some people were killed and quite a few wounded.

To avoid a backlash and with the intent of soothing frayed tempers the Dist, Administration of Varanasi organized a festival of music on the ramparts of the holy Ganga, Hindu and Muslim maestros rendered Ragas which form traditional Holi singing. A TV channel telecast the musical feast live. As I listened to the melodies and watched the captivating vignettes of Varanasi on TV a desire to be there and see the pious town and temples in person gripped me. This was around 10th or 12th of March, just before Holi. I did not mention my secret wish to anyone, not even to my wife.

On 2nd of April I received a telephone call from Shri Ramanand Tiwari, owner of Pilgrims Publishing, Varanasi, and we discussed the possibility of the publication of my book on Sri Sathya Sai Baba. We had a long conversation during which | casually mentioned that I had never been to Varanasi. Mr Tiwari very warmly extended me an instant invitation to come to Kaashi, be the guest of Pilgrims Publishing, and Stay at their guest house.

That, when not even the deal for publication of the book had been finalized. Was it not Baba, the silent indweller of my heart, playing out his role as the wish fulfilling divine?

It took more than a couple of months for things to be finalized. And, as this book goes into print I wait expectantly for news of its publication, hoping to be in Varanas} to receive its first few copies.

Many incidents recounted in this book are proof of the veracity of what Baba worte in that letter of 25th May 1947. [have tried to delineate how he has gone on to achieve his ‘task,’ fulfill his "VOW," accomplish his ‘work,’ and justify his being proud. Let us be part of his spiritual mission, for that will ensure our redemption.

I take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to Shri Ramanand Tiwari, owner of Pilgrims Publishing, for the publication of this book. Many thanks to Mr. Christopher N Burchett for taking pains to give a beautiful shape and form to the end-product. Thanks also to all other members of the publishing team. Pranams at the Lotus feet of Sathya Sai Baba for affording me the blessed opportunity to bathe in the River of Bliss.
