Overview

Sathya Sai Baba, one of India's most famous Swami’s, was one of the most enigmatic and remarkable religious figures in recent times. Millions followed him and accepted his claim of being a modern day Avatar – a God Man.

Modern Miracles is the result of four decades of investigation into the apparently miraculous phenomena associated with Sai Baba. This revised edition greatly expands upon earlier editions which were published in the 1980s under the titles Miracles Are my Visiting Cards and Modern Miracles. There followed translations in 11 languages that resulted in 17 editions.

The earlier editions were based on observations and investigations up to the early 1980s.

Now, after 30 years and almost two years after the death of Sai Baba, it is time to sum up what has been learnt about this religious and spiritual figure who has had great influence on millions of people, and for whom no match can be found in modern times. The Indian Government honoured him with a state funeral that was attended by the Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, and Sonia Gandhi, the Congress party President.

The author, Prof. Erlendur Haraldsson, on whose painstaking investigations this book is based, has been a professor of psychology at the University of Iceland and is the author of numerous scientific publications.

Unlike many academics he has never hesitated to study interesting phenomena first-hand, and his investigation into the psychic phenomena attributed to Sai Baba is no exception. Haraldsson made many first-hand observations of materializations and had nine face-to-face interviews with Sai Baba during 19 trips to India.
