Subject: From Chuck DiFazio re Invitation to Baba to visit USA
To Sai friends:
Bob Bozzani called me on Monday night and asked that I inform Sai friends that Baba approached him on the veranda of the Mandir at Prasanthi Nilayam recently, and told him to ask American devotees to invite Him to visit the United States. Therefore, on page 18 in the February 2006 edition the Sathya Sai Newsletter USA published by The Sathya Sai Book Center of Americain Tustin, California, Bob has inserted his invitation to our Beloved Sai to visit us in the United States and has written a note to all devotees to do the same. I have attached a copy of page 18 to this email for your own perusal.
Bob told me that our written invitations could be sent directly to Baba or to the Book Store in Tustin to be published in the Sai Newsletter USA, or our devotional and meditative invitations can be sent from our hearts to Baba's Heart. Bob stressed that by our invitation, Baba may want us to yearn for His physical presence here in our country or He may be asking that our invitation be a call to Him to grace our country, our people, and our Sai family with Divine Love and Peace.
Bob asked that we send these invitations with a pure heart. Bringing Sai to America in body or spirit by our love and our yearning is both a devotion and a seva. What a wonderful gift it would be for those devotees who can not travel to India for the Darshan of the Avatar. And so, I encourage everyone to consider calling out to the Lord to come to America in whatever manner He deems best for the evolution of our consciousness toward the One.

Given the fact that Sai Baba is currently restricted to a wheelchair and cannot stand for more than 5-10 minutes at a time, it seems incredulous that he is contemplating a trip to the USA. What exactly is this meant to achieve, after decades of promising American devotees that he will visit their country while always dropping his plans at the last moment?
I was reminded of this wild quote from Sai Baba that he spoke in 1961:
"The time will soon come when this huge building or even vaster ones will be too small for the gatherings of those who are called to this place. The sky itself will have to be the roof of the Auditorium of the future; I will have to forego the car and even the aeroplane when I move from place to place, for the crowds pressing around them will be too huge; I will have to move across the sky; yes, that too will happen, believe Me."
Hmmm. Learn to crawl before you can walk, pal. Literally.
