Sathya Sai Baba Experiences
“Dreams relating to God are real.” – Sathya Sai Baba
Have you had a dream about Sathya Sai Baba? Please add your own experiences at the bottom of this page. It is particularly interesting to read dreams by devotees who have dreamed about swami since his death. (Maha Samadhi) (Read also the recent posts about dreams about the signs of the miraculous return of Sai Baba.)
About some of these Sai Stories:
Over the years I have had many hundreds of stories and real experiences sent me about people’s encounters with Sathya Sai Baba – and spiritual encounters with his first incarnation as Sai Baba of Shridi. This website first went online in 1995 so some of these letters and emails are now a little dated. Some were sent to my news columns.
(Incidentally I have hundreds of letters from people who claim to have been cured from very serious illness after having taken some of the materialised Vibhutti that my painter friend Bhupendra Desai used to post to people who enquired through this site. When Bhupendra Desai died he too saw Sathya Sai Baba at the end of his bed – I spoke to him of his visitations soon before he died. Although Bhupendra was now near blind his visions were so splendid that he was in tears of joy. If any official Sai Centre would like these letters for their archives I will send them to you.)
Sathya Sai Baba has died (What devotees call ‘Maha Samadhi’) yet many people – including myself – continue to have dreams about Sai Baba with messages about how to progress our spiritual work. So I partly post these messages here as a record but also to seed new messages.
When I was in India there was a message/poster on the dining room wall that explained that Sai Baba did not give messages to devotees though mediums or channelers. Clearly, this would also apply to now – after his death. However as he is omnipresent in life it would follow that he would continue to give DIRECT messages through dreams, answered prayers and meditation. Please do share your own experiences in the comments at the bottom of this page if you feel it would help people.
These are a few of the Sai Stories sent to this website. They date from around 1995
SAI BABA AT DEATHBED
I am sending a story about my husband’s earthly death. Frank Meszaros had prostate cancer and a tumor on his spine paralyzed him from the nipples down. He was hospitalized for a few months and grew to be uncomfortable with the medical profession because so many mistakes were made in the hospital by nurses and doctors. When he was released from the hospital, he and I had to adjust to a new world of creating mobility for him. We changed our eating habits to a macrobiotic diet and continued to offer prayer to Sai Baba. A new altar was made in the dinning room where Frank’s hospital bed was placed. The altar was filled with pictures of Baba, a hawk feather given to Frank by a Mayan Priest, and pictures that related to his Catholic up bringing.
Frank’s heavenly journey when he died October 30, 1998, reminded me or a scene from Forest Gump. When Forest visited his mother, she informed him that she would soon return to God’s home. It was so simply stated without fear or tears. Frank went through such a natural, peaceful process that I was so privileged to share. Part of creation’s plan allowed for the natural process of dying. As the autumn leaves gently released themselves from the trees of their life to become recycled in an ever-changing process, it seemed symbolic of Frank’s mind and spirit releasing the earth body.
I was unaware of his fate or nearing death when he first told me of his nightly visits with ‘Baba’ (Sai Baba). He gave me simple messages from Baba. Baba says: ‘Tell the truth; Love everyone at first (judgment) then you will know to love them always; Just be yourself always and not worry; Love (Sai-Love) men and women in the same way — no competition; Life is living and not going from expectation to expectation; Baba says that he is inside of you always — you don’t have to go anywhere to find him; Just be — no need for egotism; Everyone is connected — part of One.’ As Frank spoke these simple words, his eyes seemed focused above and his body language expressed a greater knowing beyond the words and this life time. One night Frank prayed to Baba and asked him if he could be a girl in his next life. I was surprised at this request and asked Frank about it. He had no answer; he only wondered why the world has not learned ‘real love.’
When Frank entered a stage of seeing ‘imaginary people,’ they were very real to him. I told him that he was much more perceptive than I and he needed to guide me as to where to walk so I would not hurt the other people. He obliged. It almost seemed right as all soul’s eve approached that he could be on two planes — the earth and the ethereal. I e-mailed a friend, ‘Last night he slept with one eye open. One looking in and one looking out. He is so peaceful on his new journey.’ His travels on another consciousness was normal according to the Hospice helpers and they explained that he may talk to them and see many people he once knew who passed before him.
In another e-mail, I write, “He speaks of death, now. Sometimes slightly scared because he will miss me but he adds, ‘You can always think of me.’” It seemed that he was more concerned for me. Wednesday morning, Carol Gallardo and I laughed and joked as we proof read the newsletter to take it to the printer. He said, ‘I always loved hearing you two laugh.’ That was the last complete sentence I heard him speak. Frank, who loved to elaborate, had taken on such simple word usage.
As Frank’s mind and soul were on a new journey his body slowly began the natural process of closing down. Each system slowed then stopped until the last big inhalation and the heart then stopped. The body has its own orderly way of closing down. Hospital care confuses the body by intravenous feeding when the digestive system is closing or giving oxygen to a respiratory system that needs only shallow slow breaths. The natural closing of the body is truly a beautiful process. I saw only a great peacefulness in Frank. I took a wet wash-cloth and let drops of water fall on to his tongue and lips. I suspect that this deed was for my comfort and not for his. I learned the death process is natural and not to be feared. I have no idea what I perceived before. All that I can conger up is one minute you’re alive and the next you’re not because I was unaware that it was a process.
It also appeared that Frank was having out-of-body experiences. More than once, I heard foot steps in the kitchen and went to check on the sounds origin. Then I checked with Frank and he told me that he was ‘just walking.’
The morning that he passed, Tony Gallardo found a lost medal of St. Christopher in his shoe apparently at the time Frank passed to his new life and concluded that Frank had died.For his last earthly night, he was circled by friends. Bobbi Holliday lead a peaceful ceremony for his new journey.
Friday morning Frank, my life partner, died. Many friends soon arrived at my door. I was encouraged to relax and take a bath as they worked as if they were of one mind to clean my home and make food. As I bathed and meditated I saw a dance of oneness taking place as people joined and shared in a task without a task master which created a gentle, serene atmosphere. The unity of all was without ego; a connection to the oneness; and a beautiful sharing. It seemed as Frank’s words from Baba were alive.
The mystery of the ring began to evolve. I heard friends say to one another, ‘Is this your ring?’ With the reply, ‘No, it was just there.’ I had no idea about the ring until I went to use the phone and saw the black cameo ring given to Frank by his father sitting next to the phone. It appeared to just appear. I hadn’t seen the ring in over a year except for a brief dream moment the night before yet it laid so openly next to the phone which I had used consistently. Could it be another happening from Frank’s out of body experiences?
Melva Oseka who had once been a Num, came to the home as she learned of Franks’s journey and told me that she thought she saw Jesus in heavenly colors approached her during her dreams that night but as Jesus neared she saw that it was Frank who came to give her a hug. She thought that this was a sign that Frank would walk again after nearly a year of paralysis. She had no idea that Frank had come to visit her farewell. The last words she had heard from Frank a week earlier were, ‘I love you’ as the phone clicked to hang up.
When the house was refreshed and purified, Mary Jo Rhodes led a Sufi blessing and each said ‘Thanks’ to Frank for being a friend. The group left and then returned about five PM. Friends shared in telling stories and eating and then Jil Grignon led a simple, powerful ceremony with a visualization that a golden guardian angel would now sit on our shoulders.
Thank you for your sharing, Sai-Love, Marge
Yesterday I visited your site and I observed the changes done. Now your site is superb. With respect to dreams you have given most information. I would like to tell you about the great saint SHIRDI SAI BABA left his mortal coil in 1918 and after that he is in touch with his devotees in DREAMS and taking care of them.
Since 1992 in his fold I am privileged to receive messages some times verbally and some times in a picture sequence which I scribble in darkness of the night and decode them and record the messages in my personal diary. The excerpts from those daily recordings are reproduced after translation into english language for the benefit of all sai devotees and to enhance their faith in LORD SAINATH. I am releasing those of the recordings in the below mentioned websites (SAI PHILOSOPHY) which you are already visiting. You may please publish this small letter in your site (dreams section) so that sai devotees can understand that even after mahasamadhi sri sai is appearing in dreams of his devotees and giving necessary messages and instructions to them for their benefit.
With best regards saibanisa gopalarao ravada hyderabad india
The Ozone Layer was covered and Swami said that Mother Earth is sick and has a temperature, according to David. Swami blessed a Sai Survival Settlement 150 miles east of Perth, Australia, which will be on the coast in the future.
This seems to show this situation occurring in the non too distant future! This doesn’t only cover Australia, the effects of global warming and presumably the melting of the ice will raise sea-levels everywhere. I’m starting to look at Scallion’s map again The next 18 months up to the start of the Golden Age are going to be rough and in fact are already rough. Climate, Earth changes, War, Persecution, Atrocities, Stock market collapse, Depression etc etc.
Again, look at the news reports, earthquakes are reported from all corners of the world as an almost daily event, Climatic changes causing floods in one area and droughts in others. Rising sea levels blamed on the global heating while they are silent about the fact that massive ice formations under the sea level are melting at alarming rates.
On January 1995 in the ANTARTIC Peninsula a 1300 kilometre square section of ice collapsed in a matter of weeks. On January the 29th 1997. Green Peace expedition coordinator Janet Dalziell, sailing on the Green Peace ship MV Arctic Sunrise said, ” It is an eerie feeling to be sailing through open, calm waters in a spot that until only two years ago was covered by a sheet of ice over 200 metres thick. It brings home the size of the changes we can expect in a global warming world.
Note that at the “Second Conference on the Environment” in New York on the 25th of June 1997. The representative of the Maldives Islands was greatly concerned with the earth warming and sea levels rising. It would only take 30 centimeters to destroy the tourist business on the islands. Furthermore on the 27th of June 1997, as a result of this conference and the lobbying of the Australian Prime Minister John Howard, for special consideration in the reduction of fossil fuel emissions into the atmosphere. The President of the United States of America has called for a six months stay on the decision of fossil fuel reductions. As the American people are not aware of the alarming climatic changes taking place around the world.
Is it any wonder that Swami tells us that the earth is in pain
Nostradamus (by Dolores Cannon, author of Conversations With Nostradamus Vol. 1 and 2) Pole Shift Prediction: “As the poles shift, it is going to shift backward a quarter of a turn. This will create the polar ice caps melting and when this happens the water will come rushing down, the pole plates of the earth will move and they will come to a point where they can not move any further, it is a blockage.Then they will begin to buckle.
Edgar Cayce (Edgar Cayce (Biography) reading August 11 1936; 826-8) “Our planet is undergoing cataclysmic changes that have been predicted in the past. To a question posed in 1936. Q-9 “What great change or the beginning of what change, if any, is to take place in the earth in the year 2000 to 2001A.D.? Edgar Cayce responded 1936 A-9 “When there is a shifting of the poles. Or a new cycle begins.
Revelation 16: 18 “…. And a great earthquake occurred such as had not occurred since men came to be on the earth, so extensive an earthquake, so great…”
Let none of this alarm you, nor be fearful but put Trust and Faith in Swami’s words; “Why fear, when Baba is here”
‘For here I am creating a new heavens and a new earth And the former things will not be called to mind, Neither will they come up into the heart.” (Isaiah 65: 17)
“And I saw a new Heaven and a new Earth; For the former heaven and the former earth had passed away And the sea is no more” (Revelation 21: 1)
“And the sea is no more” with this phrase the author of Revelations indicates that the unruly, ever changing attitudes of men shall be no more, thus men then living will live in harmony and peace with their God. And as God told Isaiah (Isaiah 65: 17)
“Neither will they come up into the heart” indicates that people then living, having survived the catastrophe which may occur, will not deplore, nor lament, nor commiserate over the past world, their property, its people and its system.

Life after death according to a Shirdi Sai devotee
(Shirdi Sai is Sathya Sai Baba’s earlier incarnation) Sai Baba’s first incarnation as Shirdi Baba
In the year 1996, I was in Dhayana (Meditation) on Shirdi Sai. I asked Maharaj Sai to show me the life after death. Maharaj showed me my death and rebirth.
In front of Sai Baba, my Atma left the body. Sri Sai Maharaj called the Atma. My Atma was resembling like my body without flesh and bones. Sai Maharaj was holding my left hand in his right hand and asked me to walk along with him. We both crossed a river and reached a mountain. Sai Maharaj was holding my hand and we both were climbing the hill. We reached a castle above the mountain. Sai Maharaj asked me to climb tallest tower in the castle, he was holding my hand till we reached the tip of the tower. Sai Maharaj asked me to walk into the sky with faith on him. He told me that he will not go with me further. He told me not to look down and just walk into the sky and reach God. I kept my right leg in the sky and with curiosity (MAYA) I looked down the hill. My Atma instead of walking in the sky started falling down on the earth. My Atma entered a womb of a woman and the dream is vanished.
I came out from my dhayana (meditation) and realised the mistake I have done. Sai Maharaj helped me to climb the tower in the castle and asked me to walk with faith on him in the sky and reach the God. I was having faith on Sai but the curiosity (MAYA) made me to look down on earth and my Atma has taken rebirth. Sai Maharaj shown my past four Janmas (births and rebirths) and future Janma.
If any Sai devotee interested to know more about Sai Philosophy and his eleven assurances they can take part in the Sai Darbar on Sunday’s during the time 16.00 hours to 22.00 hours Indian Standard time over the phone (091-40-7123926).
