Sathya Sai Baba - rare questions

Sathya Sai Baba - rare questions


We continue our series of articles dedicated to Sai Baba. You can learn more about his biography from other articles on this website. In this article, we continue to discuss amazing stories about his life, miracles and spiritual instructions. Only Sai Baba could decide which visitor needed direct communication with him more, then Baba personally invited this person and provided a unique opportunity to ask questions.


General meetings were called Darshan, they were held in a large hall, usually several tens of thousands of people attended such meetings. Occasionally some had the opportunity to speak personally with Sai Baba in his small room. These face-to-face meetings were called interviews, and they usually lasted an hour or an hour and a half.


I was lucky enough to be present at the interviews. Sometimes Sai Baba invited me personally, and sometimes together with this or that group. He invited ten to twenty people for interviews. Each year the number of visitors increased, and there were fewer opportunities to get a personal audience.


In the 90s, Russian-speaking groups came for a month. Sometimes such groups received interviews with Sai Baba. He knew that people needed direct communication with him, and invited them to a separate room. Each time it was the decision of Sathya Sai Baba, and it was impossible to go and sign up for an audience, only he decided who he wanted and had to talk directly.


When Sai Baba went out for the morning and evening programs, visitors sat in the huge hall right on the floor on small rugs, while Sai slowly walked between the rows of the crowd. Sometimes he could linger for a minute next to someone and speak. When he invited people for an interview, they went to the entrance to a special room.


Baba invited small groups, and the conversation lasted for an hour or an hour and a half. Devotees from many countries came to him: Russians, Americans, Chinese, Japanese, Germans, French, Israelis, Iranians, Argentines, Mexicans. People from all over the world gathered in Sai's room. This room was small, everyone sat down on the floor in unison. In the very corner there was a chair where Sathya Sai Baba used to sit.

Sathya Sai Baba: personal experience


I was fortunate enough to be Sathya Sai Baba's translator for several years. I first came to Puttaparthi in 1993, from then on I came and lived in Puttaparthi there for several months every year until Sathya Sai Baba left this world in 2011.


Many times I have had the privilege of attending interviews with him, it is difficult to say how many, probably more than 200 times. Sathya Sai Baba spoke in English and I translated for Russian-speaking devotees. It was a unique experience, I witnessed numerous miracles as well as spiritual teachings that Sathya Sai Baba gave to his devotees and visitors.


In this article I will not write about all the amazing details of my personal experience with our beloved Sathya Sai Baba. I have published three books with my memories, which have become widely known in Russia, and they can also be bought at the bookstore in the Sathya Sai Ashram in Puttaparthi.


Thanks to these books, I even got a membership in the Union of Russian Writers, who highly appreciated the literary style of the works. The titles of the books: "Sathya Sai Baba - the embodiment of a dream", "Sathya Sai Baba - the miracle of the blessed life", "Sathya Sai Baba - the eternal God and perfect man."


In the 19th century Sai Baba incarnated as Shirdi Sai Baba. In the 20th century he incarnated as Sathya Sai Baba. In the 21st century he incarnated as Prema Sai Baba. By his incarnations, he shows the eternity of consciousness and the manifestation of His infinite love.


In this article I will tell you about my experience of communicating with a unique boy named Pritam, who is the next incarnation of Sai Baba, in the future we will call him Prema Sai Baba. In this article, I describe the period from 2015 to 2018, the period of his childhood from 3 to 6 years old. All the events and miracles described in this material are my personal experiences, I was the direct witness of all the events.

SAI BABA FUNERAL

SAI BABA FUNERAL


Author: Svetlana Dubyanskaya


Sai Baba funeral, strange topic for an article. How can God be born or die? God is not born, God is immortal, but the Avatar incarnated on Earth has a physical body that lives according to physical laws, hence it gets old and sick and eventually dies. The body leaves, but Sai Consciousness is immortal.

Sathya Sai Baba was born on November 23, 1926 in the south of India. His birth name is Satyanarayana Raju. He left this world on April 24, 2011.


Funeral of Sathya Sai Baba


Many people humbly refer to him as an Indian guru, philosopher and philanthropist. His followers and devotees call him God, born on Earth with a special mission. At the age of about fourteen, he proclaimed that he was the embodiment of a famous guru named Shirdi Sai Baba. Little Sathya Sai Baba left the parental home to start fulfilling his mission, serving people and society, giving instructions on spiritual practices and healing the sick.


S.Dubyanskiy was lucky to be the translator of Sathya Sai Baba for several years. During the personal meetings with students and followers, he spoke in English, and S.Dubyanskiy translated for numerous Russian-speaking groups from Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine. You can read S.Dubyanskiy’s memoirs about Sathya Sai Baba in his books

Translator of Sathya Sai Baba



When a group of Indians came to Sathya Sai Baba, he spoke with them in several Indian languages, for example, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Marathi, Bengali. When a group of foreigners came to him, then the conversation took place in English. Most of the Russian-speaking people did not know English, thus during personal meetings Sathya Sai Baba spoke through translators. I was fortunate enough to translate many times at such meetings. The main advantage of the translator is to have frequent personal communication with Sathya Sai Baba.


I often recall two interesting stories that occurred in the early 90s and were very instructive for me, as a translator. In the beginning when I just started translating for Sathya Sai Baba, I worried too much, especially during the first interview, because I felt a lot of responsibility. However, soon I witnessed two interesting cases, which made me realize that there was nothing to worry about and relaxed.


SATHYA SAI BABA (1926 - 2011)

SATHYA SAI BABA (1926 - 2011)


Sri Sathya Sai Baba was born in the very South of India. He left this world in the spring of 2011 at the age of 84. Sri Sathya Sai was a philosopher, humanist, spiritual Guru, a great healer, clairvoyant and a miracle worker.


Sri Sathya Sai Baba was sometimes called Guru or Avatar. The word Guru means spiritual master. An avatar is a divine incarnation, an embodiment that is embodied in this world in order to help all people. Sai Baba preached the interconnectedness and the unity of world spiritual traditions and religions.


Let's look into the meaning of his name. The first word Sri carries several meanings: dear, well-wishes of prosperity, also is the name of the goddess Lakshmi, who is responsible for family, material and financial well-being, self-development. Sathya means the Truth. Baba is a spiritual father, a spiritual mentor.


In his ashram, meditation and mantras were practiced. His blessings transformed the spiritual state of people. He possessed divine powers and healed from ailments. The life and teachings of Sathya Sai generated a lot of discussions during his lifetime, disputes continue even today.


Many world spiritual and religious leaders treated him with great respect, believing that he was a great teacher. Among the admirers of Sathya Sai Baba were politicians from around the world.


SATHYA SAI BABA - "My life is my message"

All that we do and everything that happens to us are steps of the spiritual path

All that we do and everything that happens to us are steps of the spiritual path


Sathya Sai Baba is the divine incarnation of our era. He was not just a philosopher who commented on the Bhagavad Gita and the New Testament, spoke about the teachings of Krishna, Christ and Buddha. Sathya Sai Baba possessed tremendous superhuman strength.


The scale of his energy was so great that people approaching the ashram could feel his special energy over a distance of 40 kilometers. There was a feeling that something unusual was going to happen, the soul was filled with joy and peace. It was a truly unique experience that many recalled. Divine vibrations pervaded the travelers, people felt that they were entering a special sacred place, their thoughts calmed down, the whole atmosphere was filled with light.


The closer we got to the ashram, the more intense the sensations of joy and bliss became. Finally, when travelers arrived in Puttaparthi, the sensation of miracle peaked. It seemed that this place was somewhere far in heaven, it was difficult to believe that you were on earth.

Dreams come true, I went to India and met with Sathya Sai Baba

Dreams come true, I went to India and met with Sathya Sai Baba

I first learned about Sathya Sai Baba in the very beginning of the 90s. At that time, I made several friends who had already visited Sai Baba's ashram. One of them was a successful Moscow businessman who had been interested in yoga for many years, and in the very beginning of the 90s he was one of the first Russians to go Sathya Sai Baba’s Ashram in India.


In addition, I met two Indian students of a medical institute, who also told me about Sathya Sai Baba, an amazing Guru from India who preached deep philosophy and worked amazing miracles.


In the late 80s and early 90s, yoga groups and meditation centers began to be organized in Russia. At the same time, it became possible to freely travel abroad, including to India, information about various esoteric traditions openly appeared. Amid a large stream of new information, information about Sathya Sai Baba was especially attractive.


My first trip to India took place in 1993. This trip was completely spontaneous. At that time, I had been studying yoga, meditation and Vedic philosophy for more than ten years. I could not even imagine that I could easily go to India and meet Sathya Sai Baba, all this seemed unbelievable to me.


Suddenly, circumstances literally swirled around me, several of my friends unexpectedly went to India and two weeks before the departure they invited me to join them. Hence, I first came to this fabulous country for six months. At the beginning of the trip, we visited the ashram of Yogi Ramaiah, a unique Guru of Kriya Yoga, who lived in the very South of India. After staying there for a while, I moved to Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram.
