Sai Baba: Singing The Blues?

As if Sai Baba figured that he can't stand any more public humiliation, Lynn "Valentine Baby" Zecca writes an account of her youth in Pulse Magazine, an alternative online newspaper.

Quickly skimming through the article, she references various gurus although the article as a whole is about Meher Baba. Apparently Pete Townshend (of 'The Who' fame) is listed as a follower.

You would expect her to give Sai Baba (our favourite Baba!) a passing mention, and she does!

"We waited in line together, me clutching my wounded finger, the porter shaking his head in sympathy. He saw me onto the right car and I gave him some rupees and a handful of chocolates. When he took his wallet out I saw he had a picture of Sai Baba. (Sai Baba of Shirdi was one of Meher Baba’s masters, not the Sai Baba of House of Blues fame—the Afro-sporting levitating guy ...)

"I said 'Oh! Sai Baba!' and pulled out a picture of Meher Baba. 'Ah, Meher Baba,' he beamed, tilting his head from side to side the way Indians do, which in this case meant 'Very good.'"

Looks like our Swami will have to do a lot more to increase his public profile before he is known as somebody more than a retro high-vibe picture in a House of Blues tavern. What's all that about levitation though, hey?
