His glory will spread and many people will get near him. But all cannot have His grace due to past sins. Personification of Love, Bliss and Wisdom. He will show Himself in many places simultaneously, though He will actually be in one place and there will be many divine acts and manifestations.
He will have the power to die whenever He wants. His front teeth will be spaced apart. He will have a mole on His cheek. He will not have beard but will be clean shaven. His clothing will be like flame. He will wear two robes. The colour of His face will sometimes be like copper, sometimes yellow like gold and sometimes like the moon. His legs will be those of a young girl. All the teachings of all the religions of the world will be in His heart from birth. All the science and knowledge of the world from the beginning of time will be in His head.
He will give gifts that are light in weight, His devotees will crane their necks to see Him.
In the last twenty years of His life time He will be the king of the whole world but at that time A. He would observe Thursday as the Holy Day. Suffice it to note that the advent of the Lord of our narrative had occurred just on the preceding day. The extract of that startling revelation made by Sri Sathya Sai Baba before a group of Christians on the Christmas Day in is given below:.
The statement itself has been manipulated and tangled in a conundrum. The lamb is, merely a symbol, a sign. Christ declared. Here Baba pointed to the robe He was wearing. The lamb is the sign and symbol of love. Prominent amongst these hallmarks, which remarkably tally with Sai Baba, are as follows: All things you will ask from God, He will give you. All the treasures of the world are under His feet. He will give gifts that are light in weight. His devotees will collect under a great tree the huge Banyan tree, that has been since removed in Brindavan campus.
Many of them will have a spot on their forehead the Hindu Kumkum dot. He will go around amongst the devotees and touch their heads with His hand. Every eye that sees Him will be happy, not only humans but disembodied souls. His devotees will crane their necks to see Him. He will live for 95 years. He will live at hill Prasanthi Nilayam is on a hill.
His house will be square. He will make the world light and full of peace. So as not to be deceived, you should know that the Master of the World will bring things out of His body and through His mouth.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba has assured us that there is no reason for mankind to be extremely worried about the future, for the golden age of humanity is soon dawning. He has assured that Satya Yuga shall start from and during the days of His next Avatar as Prema Sai which will be from onwards, the world will see the best period of human civilisation. However, Baba says from now till there will be many natural calamities, but He will exercise His powers and influence as Avatar to prevent Nuclear War.
The author has mentioned in the beginning of this chapter about the characteristics Signs of an Avatar. Let us delve more on this: The story of Sri Krishna, universally accepted as Poorna Avatar - the Total Advent - is the clearest proof of the immaculate conception of the Divine Child.
The Man and the Avatar: An Interpretation
Brahma hears the voice of the all pervasive God Vishnu that conveys the blessing and the boon to the suffering supplicants who have come before Him. The mother serves as the inaugural Vessel to contain the Cosmic Essence and allows it to unfold as its Will dictates. The incarnation of the Buddha too was equally marvellous. The Buddha formed the body for Himself within that maternal niche, conferring the status of father on Sudhodana, and Maya meditated on the Sidhartha moon, in the sky of her womb until the time when all could witness the glory of the child in the cradle.

The Lord then appeared in her dream and blessed her, indicating that He would be born in her family. Promptly, Lakshmamma alerted Easwaramma that the latter might have strange experiences, but ought not to worry about them. Shortly thereafter, Easwaramma had precisely one such experience.
One day as she was drawing water from the well, Easwaramma was startled by the sight of a big blue ball of light. The ball came directly towards her and entered her; Easwaramma fainted and fell. The Lord had entered her womb for the mandatory stay prior to physical birth as Sathyanarayana Raju. Thus, the Lord was not begotten, but immaculately conceived, even as His Son Jesus had been, two thousand years ago.
Sathya was born in the early hours of November 23, There were any number of unusual incidents accompanying His birth, as also in His childhood as in the case of Lord Krishna. Though they all gave strong hints of His Divinity, few realised until much later that Sathya was the Lord Himself. But all unfailingly recognised that Sathya was most unusual, extra-ordinarily intelligent, precocious, and above all, always full of Love and compassion.
In Primary School, Sathya helped His classmates in diverse ways. Though from a poor family, He did not hesitate to give away His clothes to needy classmates. More importantly, He never lost an opportunity to turn the minds of His friends towards God. Among other things, He formed a bhajan group for this purpose, which later became very popular.
It was time to move on to Higher Secondary School, but such a school was available only in Bukkapatnam, several kilometers to the north of Puttaparthi. Young Sathya now had to trudge back and forth every day, no matter what the weather, the muddy path through fields, walking on bunds, and wading through water, as required. In the Bukkapatnam School too, He was a model student, ever helpful to others. Making students God-conscious remained His prime occupation, and to hold the attention of His mates, He would often materialise prasadam gift-articles or vibhuti , much to their amazement.
Sathya was an automatic choice for the class-leader monitor , but this brought its share of problems. Once, His teacher asked Sathya to slap all the boys in the class for an infringement of discipline. Instead of slapping hard as he was expected to, Sathya merely patted the cheeks of the errant pupils. This greatly angered the teacher, who then directed all his wrath on the class-leader.
Sathya bore the punishment in stoic silence; for Him, it was all a part of the Drama scripted by Him, and this particular scene was being enacted to impart some lessons to humanity. On another occasion, the teacher handling a particular class-hour period noticed that Sathya was not writing down what was being dictated, while all other students did. When questioned, Sathya replied that He was not taking down because He already knew the lesson.
Interpreting this response as gross impertinence, the teacher asked Sathya to stand up on the bench, a form of punishment popular in those days. Sathya obediently did. After a while the School bell rang, signalling the end of the period in progress, and the commencement of a new period. It was time for the teacher to leave the room and make way for another one who was to handle the next period. Mahboob Khan, this other teacher, entered the classroom and to his utter surprise saw Sathya standing upon the bench. Khan loved Sathya very much, and to him it was inconceivable that Sathya would have done anything to deserve a punishment.
He also noticed that the teacher who had handled the previous period was not vacating the chair. To his astonishment he then discovered that this teacher was not getting up from the chair because he was stuck or glued to it - whenever the teacher tried to get up, the chair also lifted! In a flash, Khan understood the problem.

He asked Sathya to get down from the bench and the stuck teacher promptly got his release! Years later Swami disclosed that this drama was staged not to inflict humiliation on the teacher concerned but to make people conscious of His Divine powers.

Humiliation is something that does not exist in Swami's dictionary.
