A Reference List of Brian Steel’s Internet Postings about Sathya Sai Baba

(December 2007 to December 2008)

During the past year, for a variety of different reasons, I have been more productive with research on Sathya Sai Baba than in the previous two or three years.

The varied list begins in December 2007 with the posting of the much enlarged (150 page) triple annotated bibliography for researchers and it ends a few days ago with the latest of several postings based on a research trip to India in October. Displaying a list of this year’s work in chronological order may make it easier for readers to pick those items which seem most relevant to their interests. I hope that there is something here for all tastes.
