Please note: Dear Brothers and Sisters, this website is many decades old. Most of the material is timeless, so it matters little when it got posted. Clearly most everything is for helping to point you in the direction of discovering the Atma, your true Self. In my spiritual immersion of the past forty odd years, I was blessed with a remarkable personal access to Sathya Sai Baba, and had many unusual experiences through him; and so there will be many articles below recounting these. I visit this site only occasionally (usually bi-monthly or quarterly) and add or delete materials. Any newly published materials will for 6 months be designated with a NEW suffix. The same will apply to any older materials in which significant changes are made. Happy browsing, using these pages to bring you home to your own true, sacred Self. With all my love, Al Drucker, Sept 2014.
Hi, I'm visiting here in March 2015, and added a newly written article: Vivekananda and Sai. Like the other articles published here in the last couple of years, such as the Death and Resurrection one, the Kodaikanal one, the Alreja one, the Kupana one, and the Baba early life one, this is a great read. So, kindly enjoy! Love, Al April 8, 2015 - I also added an expanded article based on a talk that Baba gave to the villagers in his hometown of Puttaparthi 53 years ago. It is the highest rendering of the Advaita Vedanta.
May 12, 2015 - Added a powerful article on the Theory of Everything, in Articles. i think it's one of the best things I ever wrote. Enjoy! It was extensively revised on June 20, 2015. If you previously read it, have another look, particularly on the last third, or so. Also, have another look at Baba's interview with all the foreign devotees that had come to Kodai on Swami's first visit there. It was a totally remarkable interview and filled with the highest non-dual teachings. Includes some material that had previously been edited out for brevity, but really should have been left in. Very worth another read. Added Video section June 25, 2015.
