My tribute to Sathya Sai Baba ...

Shri Bhagwan Sathya Sai Baba, who was battling for life at hospital in Puttaparithi has left millions of devotees in sorrow on 24th April,2011.

Many contradictory statements are being passed about his death as the famous prophecy as proclaimed by Baba that he would live on till the age of 96. The death of Baba at the age of 86  years appears to have proven that wrong. His devotees, however, are angered by this question and say that Baba had made it clear that he could leave his body if he felt like and he has done only that.

Millions of devotees of various faiths from all over the world visit the place every day, where Satya Sai Baba guides, comforts, consoles and uplifts them.

Whether he was god or not? Was he really a spiritual leader or not? His deeds are good or bad?

Beside these, Baba runs many charitable organisations including hospitals, service projects, and educational institutions in 166 countries. The Sathya Sai hospital offers free treatment to poor patients. He has taken up a drinking water project, which supplies water to people living in about 800 villages in Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh. The Sathya Sai Ganga Canal supplies water to Chennai too.

For all we know that the person in the context is no more. Irrespective of what he was, what he has done to the society is actually what we have to count up on. When we question ourselves “ how many of us are performing the duties towards the nation/ helping the poor? How many of us have hearts to give a portion of our money? We could hear "YES"  from very few.

I respect Sathya Sai Baba for giving his life, selflessly and magnanimously, to the service of mankind.

I am not sure of who will be the real Prema Sai Baba, who has been predicted to be the next incarnation. My only concern is that the Board of Trustees shall bring a prudent legislation and administer more than Rs.40,000 crores of assets contributed by devotees around the world and prevent the Tust Funds getting into wrong hands.

I hope the love and peace spread by Bhagwan won’t bring any discrepancies in the people, it will keep them in right path, and the Sai Trust will take care of the welfare activities as per the messages of Baba.

My message to all the devotees is that "The Best Tribute we can pay to our Bhagawan is to follow his preachings and maintain the love, peace and mutual respect”

 He is one of the great human beings.Being a resident of Anantapur, I thank you Bhagwan for helping us, in providing water, when no government could help us. We never forget your services.
My Deep condolences to all the devotees of Satya Sai Baba.

May the almighty Lord rest his Soul in Eternal Peace.

If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character.
If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation.
When there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.
----  Sathya Sai Baba
