Prema Sai predicted coming
Posted by robertpriddy on December 17, 2012
Remaining devotees of Sathya Sai Baba await his return as a new incarnation, Prema Sai Baba. There is much confusion as to when this may take place, all calculations having been thrown into complete disarray by the failure of Sathya Sai Baba to live into his 90s. Despite specious claims that he DID live to be 96 if one reckons in terms of lunar years, he clearly stated in 1960 “I will be in this mortal form for 59 years” and in 1961 “I shall be in this body for 58 years more”. (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. I – p 198 & Vol 2 – p. 92). He also made several other incompatible predictions of his lifespan.
It has variously been stated that the rebirth will take place either immediately, one year later or else eight years after Sathya Sai Baba would ‘leave the body’. However, in a book now circulating called ‘Sai Thy Kingdom Come’, the author – a not entirely literate Indian – speculates that Sai Baba will reincarnate (most like in 2014) and live in his Sathya Sai form again for 7 years! Read an analysis of this book by Sreejith Narayan and it’s basis made in 2014 by clicking here. Also see Narasimha Murthy’s claims on Souljourns video about Prema Sai
On the Richard Bock film, Aura of Divinity, made in the 1970s, the commentator asserts that Sathya Sai Baba has said that he will be reborn as Prema Sai eight years after his leaving the Sathya Sai body. Since the entire international dating system is claimed by Sai authorities and traditional shastris not to apply to Sai Baba, it’s anyone’s guess when this is supposed to occur.
[ Up-date June 2014: It was claimed (by Isaac Tigrett) that Sai Baba returned in a ‘subtle body’ to hold discourses as Kodaikanal, but this was denied by the Prasanthi Council and also was considered not so by Sreejith Narayan, though his sidekick the bogus ‘the author of scholar’ Waris Faridi believed it. (Neither were present to the event)]
Yet more awkward, Sathya Sai Baba clearly stated that he would be reborn in Doddamalur, 20 kms. due North Mandya District of Karnataka, as reported in most pro-Sai sources. However, he also told his biographer Kasturi, while driving with him past a small village called Chandrapatna in Karnataka State (some 38 kms South West of Bangalore), that he would ”take rebirth” there and that Kasturi would be his mother! Kasturi told this in a lecture for foreigners in January 1985 where I heard him. It was also published somewhere by Kasturi). Further:-
The Second Coming of Christ, no less!
“Sai Baba speaks of a trinity of Sais. He would live to be 96 years, until 2022; eight years after his death (in 2030) the third Sai, Prema Sai will be born in a village in Mandya district of Karnataka. The three Sai’s will embrace the three major religions of the world — the Shirdi Baba Islam; Satya Sai Baba Hinduism and Prema Sai Christianity. It will be the second coming of Christ.” from book review in The Tribune, Chandigarth, October 4, 1999. ‘About the other Sai Baba’ by P. D. Shastri (see http://www.saibaba-x.org.uk/7/W/P.D.%20Shastri.htm)
However, other writers had previously reported Sai Baba repeatedly said the future birthplace of Prema Sai would be Gunapalli (or Gunaparthi) on the banks of the River Cauvery. To try to remove doubt, Sai promoters now claim that Doddamalur will be renamed Gunaparthi (or Gunapalli?) after the birth. But Gunaparthy already exists, apparently, according to an MSN report Such is the nature of rationalization in denial!
(Here are the news outlets which confirm some conflicting reports:-
Once again it is a case of “take your pick” and believe what you want. That there are takers and convinced believers of every such published rumour is certain! There are, moreover, persons who claim to be Prema Sai already, and one can bet ones bottom dollar on there being many other claimants as the years roll by! Avatars and saints literally abound in India, virtually all originally self-announced, it is one way out of India’s constant crushing poverty, with the prospect of a great fortune and all the worldly benefits it brings with it to a community that can boast a true avatar. Sathya Sai Baba demonstrated this for all his many copyists. What about Chandrapatna, then… will that also be renamed, we wonder? All quite typical of Sathya Sai Baba’s shifting fantasies to feed the rumour mill that made him what he was!
Donald Taylor wrote “A way in which Sai Baba has met a potential challenge to his authority is to thwart any discussion about his successor… By defusing the problem of succession, he also defused the problem of authority. All authority remains firmly in his hands as long as he lives. Anyone else who claims this authority in Sai Baba’s lifetime will be recognized as a usurper or imposter.” (Charismatic Authority in the Sathya Sai Baba movement” 1987, Tavistock Publications, pp.119-133)
Golden Age discredited
UPDATE as of june 2015! PREMA SAI IS FOUND IN DODDAMALUR, SOUTH INDIA – A 4-YEAR OLD BOY. This will upset Narasimha Murthy’s applecart unless he and his cronies can somehow readjust their narrative to include and embrace this discovery. Of course, it is all hoo-ha, typical Hindu guru delusion and manufactured divinity.
