PARTHI BABA by Jaya Narasimhan
Sri Sathya Sai Baba appeared in the author’s dream in 1995 and asked her to “print some books.” Parthi Baba is the result, an introductory book about the advent of the avatar, based on excerpts from well-known incidents and writings by and about Sri Sathya Sai Baba. The author, in whose home the Sathya Sai Baba Center of Mesa, Arizona, has met since 1991, also includes her personal experiences and significant dreams in which Baba appeared. To explain Baba’s avatarhood, the author draws analogies from other religions to illustrate how Sathya Sai Baba fulfills the prophesies of his coming. The book includes some newer stories of Baba’s miracles. Also included are explanatory chapters on Sai Spiritual Education, Human Values, Ceiling on Desires, the values of Namasmarana (repeating the divine names) and so on. This might be a book for a newer devotee. Soft cover, 136 pages.
