Who is Sri Sathya Sai Baba?

Who is Sri Sathya Sai Baba?

“I am God. And you too are God. The only difference between you and Me is that while I am aware of it, you are completely unaware.” This is the answer Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba gives to people who query Him about His identity and divinity. This fundamental truth of man’s divine nature is at the heart of His message and mission. Indeed, in His discourses to devotees, He addresses them as “Embodiments of the Divine Atma”. All who experience His pure and selfless love, and benefit from His illuminating counsel, and witness His miraculous nature get a glimpse of the glory and majesty of God, and therefore of what one potentially and inherently is.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba was born as Sathyanarayana Raju on November 23, 1926 in the village of Puttaparthi, in the state of Andhra Pradesh in South India. Even as a child, His spiritual inclination and contemplative nature set Him apart from other children of His age, and He was known as ‘Guru’ and “Brahmajnani’ (knower of Brahman or Godhead) among His peers and others in the village. However, it was not until October 20, 1940, the day He made the historic declaration of His Avatarhood, (Avatar - Divinity Incarnate) that the world at large learnt of this divine phenomenon. Today, millions of devotees from all over the world, professing various faiths, and hailing from various walks of life worship Him as an ‘Avatar’, and an incarnation of the Sai Baba of Shirdi. Thousands gather every day at Prasanthi Nilayam, His ashram established beside the village of Puttaparthi, for His Darshan, when He moves among devotees blessing them and providing spiritual succour and solace.

    If you are a devotee of Sathya Saibaba then he is Bhagwan for you and people like you. For others he is a Hand tricker. Why you want certificate from public? Spirituality highly achievers are not at all interested to be popular like the way these so called Babas are behaving. After all acceptance of Bhagawanhood, is a pampering of Ego and involving in worldly acts, from which true spiritual person labors to give up and liberate. Those who can not liberate own self, how can they are expected to liberate devotees like you? So non believers in saibaba never bothers to check whether he is bhagawan or not. Let him enjoy fruits of his own deeds. For you in particular, when you say no offencive answer, does it mean that any answer against your belief and faith is an offensive answer? Kindly do not ask questions in such case.
