Shirdi Sai Vs Satya Sai

Looks like yet another (online) publication has carried the story of the Shirdi court case. The interesting thing is that this story reports the following:

There are several books that repeat the reincarnation theme, and the Puttaparthi seer had given assent to several authors to write books to that effect.

We should remind ourselves that the court case will be heard later today. :-) I have speculated elsewhere about the possible effects of this case should it prove successful; what does this mean for the Sri Sathya Sai Organisation, or more specifically, the Sri Sathya Sai Books & Publications Trust? Will this mean that all current publications that deal with this theme at length have to be withdrawn?

What about those composite pictures (sold inside and outside Prashanti Nilayam ashram) of Shirdi Sai next to Sathya Sai, will they have to be withdrawn from sale too? How about the fact that the PN temple room has a life-size painting of Shirdi Sai, a marble idol to the left of the altar and a silver idol in the centre? Will they have to be removed? This is the consequence of spreading objectionable propaganda with impunity. And for decades, at that!

In any case, how ironic that today (January 14th) is the day of Uttarayana, or Makara Sankranthi, a festival that supposedly bodes goodwill and auspiciousness. :-)

On the other hand, it wouldn't be out of place for Sai Baba to pull some strings with his hot-shot political, governmental or judicial connections. It would be just typical of him to try and wangle his way out of this mess.
