Sathya Narayana Raju aka Sathya Sai Baba 23.11.2013
Sathya Sai Baba (born Sathya Narayana Raju; 23 November 1926 – 24 April 2014) was an Indian guru and philanthropist. He claimed to be the reincarnation of Sai Baba of Shirdi.
Sai Baba's materialisations of vib
huti (holy ash) and other small objects such as rings, necklaces, and watches, along with reports of miraculous healings, resurrections, clair voyance, bilocation, and alleged omnipotence and omnisc ience, were a source of both fame and controversy. His devotees considered them signs of his divinity, while sceptics viewed them as simple conjuring tricks. He further faced accusations over the years of sexual abuse and fraud.
