Zz Sai Baba And Car Miracles - Poem by Saiom Shriver



English professor and poet Narayana Kasturi
was an employee of All India Radio.
He had in an Indian humor magazine
made fun of Sathya Sai Baba. After
a series of miracles involving his
family, he became a devout follower
and editor of Baba's magazine
Sanathana Sarathi (eternal charioteer,
a reference to Krishna who would not
fight in the Mahabharata war but instead
was charioteer for Arjuna.)

One day a car caravan as often happened
was following Baba's car to a destination.
One after another, parts fell off of Kasturi's
car. When they arrived Kasturi took the car
to a mechanic who said it was physically
impossible for the car to have arrived.

Kasturi went to Baba and asked 'Was it
because we are good devotees that you
did this miracle for us? ' and Baba replied
'The car, the car is a great devotee.'


In California, Isaac Tigrett who founded the
Hard Rock Cafe chain,
was driving his Porsche at 90 mph
while intoxicated and found it going over a cliff.
Suddenly a man materialized in mid air and pulled him out
of the car and set him on the top of the hill as the car
crashed below. Tigrett was unharmed. Time passed. He was in
a London book store and saw on a book cover that the man
who had saved his life was Sai Baba.


A hunter shot a tiger. Later his car stalled near Puttaparthi.
Baba's ashram village. His driver
told the hunter that Baba was in the village and would be
able to start the car. The hunter sent his
chauffeur to find Baba, who returned and told the hunter
he had orphaned to tiger cubs and should see
to their welfare. Baba then slapped the car, whose engine ignited.


JMF was driving. Her two toddler daughters were in the back
seat. As she turned, a speeding motorist hit her side of
the car and totaled it. Glass had shattered all over the
little girls. Yet neither she nor her children had been
injured in the slightest.


SNS, a Sai devotee stopped her car
and went across the road to gather some
nuts in the gutter. She took 4 minutes
to collect them. When she turned around
the car was gone.

Looking frantically around she saw
it a block and a half away, in what would
normally be the grass strip in
front of the sidewalk.

It had rolled back, through
an intersection. It had avoided
trees, people, children, animals,
moving and parked cars, homes.

The one place onto which it
rolled and stopped had no
grass, but was dirt dug up
for planting.

Only the ruts in the mud
were proof that Baba had parted
not the sea but the land for her
when she had failed to put the car
in park.
