For the devotees of Sathya Sai Baba, there are two main questions in the context of the birth of Prema Sai. “Where” and “when” He must be born. Sathya Sai Sai repeatedly predicted his next birth, but most often he gave multivariate answers about the place and time of his next incarnation.
Many times Sathya Sai Sai mentioned that he would incarnate in the village of Doddamalur, and also he repeatedly said that he would be born in the village of Gunaparthi (Guna Parthi). Many devotees tried to find this village on a map of India, but in vain. It turned out that such a village does not exist yet. How can this be? When the devotees came to Sathya Sai Sai and tried to ask a question about the village of Gunaparti. To this, Sathya Sai Sai said that really there is no such village yet. However, later a village with that name will appear.
Sathya Sai Sai said that he will be born in a village with a different name, after He begins his divine mission, this village will be renamed as Gunaparti.
As early as the 60s and 70s, Satya Sai said to some of his close devotees that he would be born in the village of Doddamalur, which is located in the state of Karnataka, south India. In 2012, Prema Sai really born in the village of Doddamalur.
Doddamalur is a small village, however this place is very famous because the ancient Vishnu temple is located in this area. Legend has it that this temple is at least twenty thousand years old. Perhaps Raama Avatar himself visited this temple in that distant era.
Is it possible to rename the village of Doddamalur into Gunaparti? Most likely not, because it is an ancient pilgrimage center. What to do with the prediction? Interestingly, when Prema Sai was six years old, the family moved to the outskirts of the village.
When Prema Sai “proclaims himself,” he'll be twelve years old. Most likely He will build his first ashram right on the outskirts of Doddamalur, where agricultural fields are now located. It is this part of the village of Doddamalur that will be renamed Gunaparthi, and the old historical part of the village will remain under the old name. Perhaps he will build his first ashram not far from the village where he was born and call this place Gunaparti, who knows, everything is in God's hands.
