Swami Abedhananda 

Prof. N. Kasturi wrote: “While at Prasanthi Nilayam, Baba has given Darsan at Ramanasram to Swami Abhedananda  (b.1866-d.1939)as Ramana Maharshi and at Shimoga to Ramanandarao as Ramadas of Kanhangad! Sai Baba has accepted gifts intended for other saints and Gurus, for He was all of them. Baba too has surprised many people by telling them that He has been with them for years, guiding and guarding, when they protest that they are meeting Him for the first time. Baba makes it clear that He is the very guru that they have followed so far.”  [p. 135 – ‘Conversations with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’ by Dr. John Hislop, p 146 new ed. ISBN 81-7208-049-2] Kasturi repeated this ‘story’ in several versions throughout his 4-volume biography. [Swami Abhedananda was born in1866 and died in 1939]

It is worth noting that visions and visitations are not at all uncommon, of course. – whether or not they are pathological symptoms. People who have concentrated intensely on their guru’s figure for decades have auditory and visible ‘illusions’ and other subjective experiences. Almost anything envisaged can seem to become real and the history of appearances, visions and such phenomena from early humans onwards is both vast and intriguing. One small contemporary example, those who envisage aliens often claim to meet them in the flesh, even be abducted by them! Finally, Sai Baba claimed that a light which seemed to appear and merge into his feet was the soul of Ramana Maharshi after he left the body! This claim has been reported by R. Ganapati in his biography, but never ‘officially’ confirmed. One must therefore strongly suspect it.

There is apparently no limit to Sathya Sai Baba’s boasting about himself, as one can see in a majority of his thousands of discourses! His claim to be the fullest possible avatar of God, while all others are ‘women’ by comparison with him, should be sufficient to demonstrate the unlikelihood of his having been able to go as a youth and correct India’s acclaimed and venerable spiritual figures, though he was doubtless precocious and cheeky.
