Sai Baba's failed moon
darshan creates major furore among devotees and the public
By: Ex Baba admin
Many news outlets report on the major failure of a pre-announced miracle of
Sathya Sai Baba in Puttaparthi October 4th, when his appearance on the face of
the moon did not occur and the moon was invisble in Puttaparthi anyhow due to
cloud coverage! This remarkable Sai Baba PR blunder - started when Anil Kumar
made an announcement of a miracle that evening to be seen from the Sathya Sai
Airport, has since led to a flood of e-mails and cellphone calls between
devotees worldwide, and brought well over 7000 extra visitors within a few days
to the blogs of
Robert Priddy and
where the moon darshan and the back-up by devotees is shown and discussed.
Devotees have circulated by e-mail faked pictures purporting to show Sai Baba as
he allegedly appeared on the moon and various others around the world have
posted to report that they have seen this on various dates. One has to be amazed
either at the power of their imagination or self-programming or their sheer
naivety of Sai fanatics, when no one else throughout the entire world has
evidently seen any such thing.
