Prashanthi Nilayam is the main ashram of Sri Sathya Sai Baba at Puttaparthi, the birth place of Baba. Puttaparthi is in Ananthapur district of Andhra Pradesh. Almost every Indian and a large number of people in other countries have certainly heard of Sri Sathya Sai Baba and considerable numbers among them are disciples and devotees of Baba. I have been to Prashanthi Nilayam two times and to Baba’s ashram at White field, Bangalore, once. I had the opportunity of being in Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s presence four times and seek his blessings.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba is a highly revered spiritual leader and world teacher since 1940, from the age of 14 years. His life and message are inspiring millions of people throughout the world to turn God-ward and to lead purposeful and moral lives. His service to society in the fields of education, health care, drinking water supply to several places in drought hit areas and service to society through his disciples whenever and wherever there is a need is highly admirable. And then there are many miracles involving Sri Sathya Sai Baba and his devotees. Several believers in him have benefitted by seeking his blessings and I am one of them. To know and understand Sri Sathya Sai Baba one has to read as much as possible about his life, his teachings and the experience of his devotees. And plenty of such literature is available on internet.
