2011 April 26
Millions mourn over death of Hindu holy man. Read more:

Today, on the 26th of April 2011, I read an article from yesterday reporting the death of Sai Baba.

I had already an entry about Sai Baba three weeks ago,
2011 Apr 6 – Get well, Sai Baba
and this is now the second.

Years ago I made a note of the year 2022 as the year until Sai Baba was to live. I got that information from “Supreme Bliss of Divine.”

Another year was 2030: “Sai Baba’s next Avatar as Prema Sai will be from 2030 A.D.”

The year 2022 as the year until Sai Baba was expected to live kept me wondering how this might fit into a time table which indicates the end a couple of years before that year.

I now bring some excerpts from what I read today:


Hindu guru Sathya Sai Baba, worshipped as a god by millions of followers worldwide, died yesterday in a hospital near his southern Indian ashram. He was 84.

Sai Baba had been struggling with multiple-organ failure after being admitted on March 28 to the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, near his ashram in Puttaparti village in Andhra Pradesh state.

The saffron-robed Sathya Sai Baba had a huge following, with ashrams in over 126 countries and Indian followers, including high-placed politicians, movie stars, world-class athletes and industrialists.

“Sri Sathya Sai Baba was a spiritual leader who inspired millions to lead a moral and meaningful life, even as they followed the religion of their choice,” Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said in a statement. His death was “an irreparable loss to all, and the nation deeply mourns his passing away.”

Born on November 23, 1926, as Sathyanarayana Raju, he was said as a child to display a tendency towards spirituality and unusual intelligence, which he expressed through music, dance and writing poetry and plays.

In 1940, at the age of 14, he declared himself an “avatar”, or reincarnation, of another Hindu holy man called Sai Baba of Shirdi, a town in western Maharashtra state, who died in 1918.

Health woes over recent years had forced Sai Baba to cut down on public appearances. He survived a stroke and a series of heart attacks in 1963. In 2005, he began using a wheelchair, and a year later, he fractured his hip when a student fell from a stool on to the guru.
