Tribute to Satya Sai Baba

Satya Sai Baba, named at birth Sathyanarayana Raju was born on November 23, 1926 and died April 24, 2011. He passed away at Puttaparti village in Andhra Pradesh state, India, at the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences.

Almost all of Satya Sai Baba's life was dedicated to serving humanity in a way I would call practical spirituality.

The fact that he became known as the saint who performed miracles of materialization did not stop his charitable work for humanity, and not just with spiritual projects, but with health and sanitizing projects.

Here is a story of my experience with Sai Baba's powerful love, which in my opinion is the force that can move mountains.

In 1978 I was living in Santa Barbara, California and a member of a local sanga of spiritual seekers. One of the members was planning a pilgrimage to spend time with Sai Baba in India. Upon his return, this man brought me a packet of sacred ash enclosed in a folded square of paper inside an envelope that Sai Baba had materialized.

I was thrilled and felt uplifted by the vibration of what I was receiving. It reminds me of the words of Jesus to the effect that it is your faith that has saved you.

Before I received the packet I was more of a thinker and decided my life with a rational approach; after feeling the love transmitted in the gift of Sai Baba I felt my heart expand so my decisions came more from a balance of head and heart.

I kept my packet on my meditation altar until moving to The Netherlands about 10 years ago. At that time I passed the packet of ashes on to my daughter for her altar. I had received the packet before my daughter was conceived and felt my developing devotion to Divine Love was instrumental in bringing forth a spiritually minded child.

I will always be grateful to Satya Sai Baba for coming to me this way to further open my heart to the love of God through service to humanity.

Don't let rumors of false miracles deter you from reading about and studying the life of this saint of India. I felt his love reach out to me to help awaken my own path of service to God through humanity.
