“I need only one ‘Mandir’ – Your Hearts!
Preserve the purity of your hearts, so that SAI may reside therein
The Original Report May 2014
During the past week I’ve received numerous forwarded emails from people interested in the resurrection of Sai Baba into an incarnate body. From what I have learned from people visiting kodaikanal this year, Sai Baba has not yet resurrected into a physical form but has chosen a “light body.” Some people claim to have seen Sathya Sai Baba’s shimmering in light, though the majority of people who visited kodaikanal say they only felt Sai’s presence. There are photos of the Kodaikanal gatherings, and of Sai Baba’s empty chair. There are discourses readily available that suggest Sathya Sai Baba spoke to those gathered. There is also a video. I am not going to post those discourses, because they are easy to obtain from other sources. Instead, I’ve posted the Kodaikanal 2014 video for readers’ interest. Here’s an excerpt from an email I received several days ago. What to make of these occurrences, I do not know. I was not there to say one way or another. Only time will tell. I guess it is a wait-and-see scenario.
From a forwarded email May 2014
“Baba appeared in a “light body” which only a few could see, though everyone felt his presence. Baba spoke in Telegu to a person from Muddenahalli who translated this into english. These documents are from notes taken by students. Many photos were taken. None of them show the physical form. We’ve attached a few earlier photos so you can get the flavour of what was happening. Many photos are of the people who were invited to the “property” and of Kodaikanal. The photographs, with what looks like empty chairs, actually had Sai sitting in them. In one photo, an unseen Baba was getting out of his car.”
From my own experiences in Prashanthi Nilayam Mandir in both 2012 and 2013, Sai Baba’s darshan (vibrations) was readily available to all who gathered there. There were many visitors who regularly, and without fail, attended the Chanting of the Vedas and stayed for the bhajan programme, enjoying the peace that pervaded the area, both within the darshan area, and beyond. For most visitors, after the physical passing of Sai Baba, darshan experiences are no different from those experienced when he was in his physical body. In other words, The vibrations can still be felt. One might say that Sai has not gone anywhere. Long ago, I remember reading a particularly beautiful story about Sri Ramana Maharshi. Ramana told one distraught devotee not to worry about his imminent demise, for he (Ramana) was not going anywhere. He had no place to go to that He was not already there! Ramana would remain available to all who sought darshan and solace in his ashram. So it is, I now believe, the same with Sathya Sai Baba.
.. When speaking of an evolved soul’s Light body, we could easily think of the transfiguration of Christ. Let me refresh your memory.
The Transfiguration of Christ is written in four gospels. According to the gospels, Christ made himself visible to a few disciples. He did so to strengthen their faith. But that experience was only a temporary one. The event of the Transfiguration is recorded in three of the four Gospels: Matthew 17:1-9, Mark 9:2-8, and Luke 9:28-36. Jesus took the apostles Peter, James, and John with Him upon a mountain, and while on the mountain, Jesus was transfigured. His face shone like the sun, and his garments became glistening white. Jesus became light – as the sun is light, to strengthen the faith of his disciples. He did not remain long in his subtle body, for he had no need to. In the case of Jesus, he had already established at a “soul level” an eternal connection that shone within the souls of those gathered.
There is no need for a great guru or spiritual master to resurrect, as we have already established within us a soul connection to that eternal source. We all have within us the potential to evolve whether we have been guided by a guru/master/teacher or not. It makes no difference. The guru-as-guide is a pointer only, for only we can redeem ourselves.
The key is in understanding that the physical body is only an instrument of the divine. It is not forever. What was it that Sathya Sai Baba said so well ? “You are not the body.” “Drop all attachments to the body and its desires.” I feel that includes all physical attachment to Sai Baba’s form also. ~ Now ain’t that the hardest thing for people to do!!! More importantly He said and I quote: “At first, name and form are essential, that is the reason why Avatars come, so that God can be loved, adored, worshiped, listened to and followed, and finally realized as nameless and formless.” –
Here is a you tube of photos from the 2014 Kodaikanal meetings: I would like to point out that in this short video, Swami’s subtle body is arriving??? by car. Oddly enough, Sai Baba as of now, Sept. 2015, is being manifested in the mind of “Madhu the Medium,” real name, Madhusudhan Naidu, (the only person on the planet who can both see and hear the Astral Sai Baba, according to Naidu. ) He tells us Sai Baba can travel by car, like the top end “Jaguar” he prefers to use or by “astral plane” – depending on travel circumstances. On world travels, Sai Baba goes by astral plane, so there’s no need to buy an airplane ticket for him. (Astral plane, that infinite place beyond our ken, does not cost a dime, does it? To travel first class would cost a huge amount, given the motley crew travel most of the time.)
Anyway, enjoy the video. ~ Make of it what you will.. Sai Ram
Swami talks through me! Since the advent of the Ted (Henry) Talk from Muddenahalli, there are now various claims from folks who say they are in touch with Swami. I am sure Mr. Murthy, when he gave his interview to Ted H. had no idea others would jump on the band-wagon! The problem with channeling or seances is that nothing can be proven. It’s subjective and leaves the whole issue, post Sai Baba as something akin to dimly lit seance rooms, or of a ghostly figure who appears to ‘chosen’ people. This is not the Sai Baba I knew. He always said, and I quote, “he never speaks/talks through anyone”. There are many quotes from Him about this topic. To think that Sai Baba would channel messages through someone is bringing him down to the level of a deceased soul, now living in the astral, who is still attached in some way to earth. These sort of spirits are likely to want to contact family and friends, if only to give proof of their survival. Great Saints don’t have to rely on a medium, for they are able to appear in dreams, or give evidence in so many ways, to each and every one, without any effort at all. They can also appear for a short time in a flesh and blood body. St. Padre Pio, Catholic – died in 1968, even healed someone after his death. Again his intervention with a soul living on Earth was one to one. I posit right here, there’s much to be cautious of with those who say they are Swami’s medium. I don’t think we have heard the end of the seances, I am sure many more people will claim the same as time goes by.
valeriebarrow.com- google it if you like. “John (my husband) and I sat together and called upon Cosmic Sai Baba – we had previously “booked a time in the morning to speak with him.”” – booked a time? – There’s something odd about booking a time with a Great Master –
I refer you all to the link here for further details on the brief resurrection of Sri Yukteswar: It is a most insightful read and will be of help to anyone interested in the passing and resurrection of an evolved Master.

Update: Just a note to say the experiences in Muddenahalli continue on. The reports I hear from those that visited are varied. Some insist the “happenings” are true, others say it is all a hoax. Truth is, with only one boy claiming to see and hear Sai Baba, it is very hard for people to make a judgement.There are now parades, dances and people flowing in, also a baby elephant! to make the picture complete. Also,to my utmost surprise, I hear that Sai Baba is giving interviews and materializing rings or other pieces of jewelry. How these “objects” are materialized I have no idea, but I do know astral forms can “apport” small items on to a table or drop them on to the floor, but if this is not the case, and these objects are appearing in the hand of the person doing the “materialization” -then I would be suspicious. But hey! let’s wait a minute and think this through – can this whole affair be a case of mass hysteria or mass hypnosis on the part of those who just want something to hold on to? I do not know because I have not visited myself, I only draw here from what I am told by others. I remember way back in the 1980’s when I first became interested in Sai Baba, I wanted personal proof. I would not settle for other people’s stories, no matter how good they were. I along with so many others would settle for nothing less than my very own experience. Most of us were given abundant proof. We had either dreams, or some little experience that meant something profound. Without such personal experiences, most of us would not have been happy to accept others’ tales, interesting as they might have been. The same goes for Muddenahalli Sai Baba, people need some sort of personal proof to really believe. To accept anything less is rather like short-changing ourselves. Anyway, I will leave you with these thoughts, hoping they will be a small guidance for you to draw on. 🙂 So far during 2015, The Muddenahalli crew with the all knowing, purer than pure, 36 year old Medium, Madhu, have visited Australia, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, Rome, Croatia, Kodaikanal again. During June, they visited CA. To the up-market seaside town of Encinitas, Ca. for a public viewing, all other venues being invitation only. They also visited Canada and again to Singapore.
I find it hard to believe that Sai Baba would want to travel abroad, and yet not to his beloved home and central Mandir in Prashanthi- Niyalam. Afterall, this was the abode of his mission, and where his devotees discovered him and where they received his darshan over the decades. It is after all, only down the road from Muddenhalli.
Update Sept. 2015
Latest tour included Sri Lanka, Nigeria to meet Father Charles, not sure he was so interested, then to Australia again. Back to London to visit families ” those especially chosen ones” of course. Although Phyllis Krystal, backed out at the last moment. She made a declaration that she did not wish to see Madhu, nor his crew, now or anytime in the future. This statement has been posted on her website. The crew then travelled on to Dubai, Australia yet again, Fiji , Philippines to meet one family, then on to Singapore via Australia yet again. Now if I have listed the countries out of order, or missed some out altogether, forgive me, I have trouble keeping track! My mind boggles at the thought of endless travelling on planes to far-flung places by “Astral Sai Baba,” who is obviously, in the mind of the “Medium Madhu,” making up for past omissions in the travel dept. Oh there’s one place I must make mention of, the infamous visit to the Island of Macau – and what do we know about Macau? Let me refresh your memory. lol (Macau has surpassed Las Vegas as the world leader in gambling revenue. Visitors just love the flash, the money, the drugs. And the occasional winning night at the tables.)
Tours 2016 – Without Isaac T.
Japan, Bali, Singapore again. This month they are travelling back to Italy and U.K and other regions of Europe. I noticed from the reports the gatherings are leaner and looking less joyful. Perhaps people are not as fooled as before. Images from their Singapore meeting last month (March.) The other image with red sun umbrellas held over Madhu and the invisible Baba is from their visit to Bali. – neither drew large crowds, not even though The Supreme Avatar was in their midst, according to Officials, Mr. Murthy and Madhu. (click on images to enlarge.) thanks
This short but detailed you tube was posted on F.B. I have added here for your interest. Although, myself, I have no further interest in this matter.
This is about it folks on seances and medium ship from me. I just don’t want to be involved in the topic here on my blog. Might add, I am in no way connected to the Sai Org. or people involved with that movement. Since the demise of Sai Baba, I have moved on in life, although my memories of Baba, are something I cherish.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Sorry the post is long and a bit rambling due to the subject matter being complicated.
