Shirdi Sai Baba far more popular than Sathya Sai today
Posted by robertpriddy on February 5, 2013
As can be seen from Google Trends, the world search for Shirdi Sai Baba is about two and a half times higher than for Sathya Sai Baba. This would seem to indicate that the endless scandals that have followed Sathya Sai Baba – but also his Central Trust – have caused Shirdi Sai followers to discredit him in favour of the Maharastran spiritual master whose name Sathya tried to usurp to himself and who never once claimed to be God or accepts the excessive avataric role (eg. as part of a triple avatar, as Sathya Sai claimed).
