Vicky Nanajappa dared devotees of Sathya Sai Baba to question them about the spiritual leader’s prediction that he would live to be 96 years old. Here’s what he discovered:

debtIn Puttaparthi, faith knows no bounds. Amid the despair and disappointment over Sathya Sai Baba’s death, there is another aspect that is upsetting devotees.

In his discourses, Sathya Sai Baba predicted that he would live to the age of 96, after which he would be reborn as Prema Sai Baba.

Translation company I spoke to several of the believers about this, and when I asked them about it, they all spoke in angry tones, and no one was willing to admit that this was a false prophecy.

Who said that Sathya Sai Baba’s predictions were wrong?

“T“There is a difference between leaving the body and leaving the earth,” the devotee said, adding, “Baba never said he was leaving permanently. He never said that his soul would leave us. We must have misunderstood. We now firmly believe that only his body has left and his soul is with us.”

Another person has interpreted Baba’s discourse in a similar way.

“He has just left his body. I am sure his soul is present here. His soul will remain in Puttaparthi for the next 10 years and then he will be reincarnated as Prema Sai Baba in Karnataka. There is no doubt about that,” he says.

TSome are having a hard time accepting the fact that Baba left them ten years before He promised.

“We could not understand what he was trying to say. He must have said that he would leave his body at 85 and his soul would leave after 10 years. Whatever Swami said was logical but we humans just could not understand it. So, I don’t think anyone should question it,” says another devotee.

TThere are other versions of this story.

Sathya Sai Baba is said to have revealed that he would be reincarnated as Prema Sai Baba exactly one year after his death.

“Baba wanted to remove all our sufferings and leave this world soon. Remember, in the same discourse, He had said that He would live to be 96 years old, but added that He could leave the body earlier if He wanted. And that is exactly what He did,” say the devotees.

This also means that He will be reincarnated early and will be born as Prema Sai in 2012. This will be His last incarnation.

Baba said that Prema Sai is a triple incarnation of Shirdi Sai Baba who is an incarnation of Shiva and Shakti – Shiva as Shirdi Sai Baba, Parvati embodied in Sri Sathya Sai and the principle of Shakti embodied in Prema Sai.
