Absolutely true ...when he died , he had only 9 coins ... sirdi saibaba's whole life is itself a message with his simple living and high thinking ..he strongly believed that the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. His philosophy" there is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed. .... is an eye opener for this selfish world.....his moto "To give service to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer .... I think none can attain the feet of sirdi saibaba even after millions of re-incarnation

It is easy to compare two great souls and to degrade one whom we do not like to appreciate. Why don't you compare yourself with others and tell for how many villages you have provided drinking water facility etc., etc.

Do you know how many allegations were there cooked up against Shridi Baba ? Do you know anything about the code of accepting donations in Sathya Sai Ashram ?

IT is the habit of selfish people to throw stones against the dedicated ones. IT is quiet natural and understandable :(

I think all these institutions of all babas and also temples are the best in the industry they are not in the run with the industrialists like ambani but if seen they might be richer than many ambanis put together

Well how exactly you know he never accepted black money ? Does any baba be it shirdi or any other first ask for IT returns ? Was there any IT department in those days to differentiate between black and white money. Even today does Shridi Sai Baba temple trust ask for PAN number and IT return while accepting donation ?

FYI as per law even if I donate my black money the onus of tax liability and source is on me and not on the receiver of the donation. Receiver has to pay the tax on the total amount he received and for him the money is white as long as accounts of trust are audited and tax is payed.

This type of questioning after the death of Baba is in bad taste.This only shows the mental condition of the person asking such question.Why this question was not asked when Baba was alive.

Most of the money is for foreiners , the money was never collected form any indian ctizen, so Satya Sai Baba brought back all the money which was looted from India since centuries and all his charity activites are for Indians - may be it water serive, education institutes, medical service etc. He has brought a new dimention to spirtual thinking service to fellow being is service to GOD, This is more relevent to today , when every body is sefishly involved with himself and his family only. Those who allegated him can't even do a bit of service activity to not fit to abuse HIM.
Both Shiridi Sai and Sathya Sai belong to different period so lets not compare both are great persons of there times.
