Events have shown that Sai Baba could not do anything remotely near to all the world-changing things he claimed he would accomplish as the insuperable avatar. His many wild predictions consistently have virtually all failed completely.
Prediction: Sai Baba prophesied as bringing a golden age
"In the Bible Revelation 19 speaks of the God incarnate having come on a white horse which coincidentally is also the description of the Kalki Avatara predicted by the Hindu scriptures several thousands years ago. “ Its rider is called Faithful and True.”
"Yuga shall start from 1999 and during the days of His next Avatar as Prema Sai which will be from 2030 onwards, the world will see the best period of human civilisation. However, Baba says from now till 1999 there will be many natural calamities, but He will exercise His powers and influence as Avatar to prevent Nuclear War. He has told His devotees not to get out of the umbrella of His Divine Protective Grace lest they be subjected to harm at the hands of nature’s fury which will indeed be raging till 1999." Sri Sathya Sai Baba has assured us that there is no reason for mankind to be extremely worried about the future, for the golden age of humanity is soon dawning. He has assured that Satya Yuga shall start from 1999 and during the days of His next Avatar as Prema Sai which will be from 2030 onwards, the world will see the best period of human civilisation. However, Baba says from now till 1999 there will be many natural calamities, but He will exercise His powers and influence as Avatar to prevent Nuclear War. He has told His devotees not to get out of the umbrella of His Divine Protective Grace lest they be subjected to harm at the hands of nature’s fury which will indeed be raging till 1999.(The matter contained in this paragraph is found in the book “Pralaya 1999”, by M. R. Narendra).
"I have resolved to enfold the people of the world in the fostering care of Universal love. . . . . . . . . . . . . For the world is my mansion and the continents are the halls therein. I have come to inscribe a golden chapter in the history of humanity, wherein falsehood will fail, truth will triumph, and virtue will reign. Character will confer power then, not knowledge or inventive skill, nor wealth. Wisdom will be enthroned in the councils of the nations. Do not be misled.!!!have come to inscribe a golden chapter in the history of humanity. (Sathyam, Sivam, Sundarm Volume 3. http://vahini.org/sss/iii/awakening.html)
Sai has come ... to achieve the supreme task of uplifting the entire mankind, as one family through the bond of brotherhood... and of instructing all to recognise the common Divine Heritage that binds man to man so that man can rid himself of the animal, and rise to the Divine, which is his goal. I want to build one humanity without any religious, caste or other barriers in a universal empire of love which would enable my devotees to feel the whole world as their family. (1999)
I have given the warning. I have given My message a thousand times and no one who hears My words can proclaim ignorance. (1991)
Everyone should prepare now for this change, for I promise you that it will come, and only those who are ready will survive. (SriSathyaSaiBaba FM, (1991), p.223 1991)
What Sai resolves must take place. You have to understand this. (23 november 1985)
What I will, must take place; what I plan must succeed. (1991)
The appearance of the much vaunted Golden Age as predicted by Sai Baba in many connections has been widely investigated and found to have no discoverable basis in fact. For a thorough review of this please see here
The regeneration of India, then the world, through his influence
The total transformation of India as an engine, not only of economic growth, but also as a shining moral example to the peoples of the world which would regenerate them all and introduce a new Golden Age has frequently been promised by Sathya Sai Baba, such as to the credulous Dr. J. Hislop of the USA. Sathya Sai Baba is India’s top living religious figure, who is worshipped by most of India’s Prime Ministers and Presidents since Indira Gandhi up to the present day (see some of Sai Baba’s preposterous claims here!).
Sai Baba told Dr. John Hislop how India, led by his own students, would be tranformed before extending this to the whole world. See their discussion here
Sathya Sai Baba said in his 76th birthday discourse (2003) :-
"Today is Krishna Janmashtami, the birthday of Lord Krishna. I am making a promise today that the people of all the countries, viz. Pakistan, China, Germany, Russia will be united. That should be our goal. The goodness of Bharat will lead to this unity." (p. 267 - Sathya Sai Baba’s Convocation Discourse 22-11-2008 at http://www.sathyasai.org/discour/2008/d081122.html). This makes any well-informed person think both how vague and how extremely unlikely Baba's 'promises' often are. Does he mean that through India’s offices all countries of the world will join in one union, like a glorified USA or EU? Devotees will doubtless interpret this prediction of the current alliance against terrorism between countries who now agree they are going to war against the terrorists."
But Sai Baba specifically included "the people of all the countries". Even Israel, Palestine, Irak, Iran? Would it were so! But even conveniently united efforts on the political scene against a common external enemy come and go according to circumstances… unlikely to last, as with everything, as I have heard said somewhere! So what does Sai Baba actually mean by Bharat? A non-existant country at present, only existing maybe in some distant past, or a future not yet here or in the imagination, even? Surely he can't be talking about the India we know of today, corrupt from top to bottom. How can such a nation, where most human rights are totally disregarded for the great mass of its population, conjure forth all this goodness that will unify the world? Well, only the Lord knows, what with the massive and blind retributive killings by Indian forces of innocents in Jammu/Kashmir and of Nagas in the East, with its persistent and repressive caste system, widespread colour discrimination, ever-repeated murdering of Dalits, Moslems, Christians, tribals and the still very widespread burning of brides, repression of women's rights, slavery of millions of landless bonded labourers and its ca. 20 million child labourers? It’s a nice thought, but is not Sai Baba fanciful now... or, as he says of his critics 'imaginative'?
Judge for yourself whether Sai Baba’s prophesies are proving to have ANY results. Consider how India has developed a major nuclear arsenal and a huge military machine – a threat to its neighbours. Does this give India the moral high ground? So much for the much vaunted non-violence policy and the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi, on which most of India’s fame rested once! The social and economic inequality in India, despite its considerable present wealth, equals or surpasses anything on the globe today… and it denies many basic human rights to many of its minorities. Is this morally defensible?
All India would become Hindu by 2030 & that the whole world would be Hindu
VHP’s leader Singhal Reported " The VHP leader, while disclosing his discussion with Satya Sai Baba, said that Sai Baba had informed him that between 2020 and 2030 the whole India would be of Hindus and after 2030 the whole world would be of Hindus”. ( see scan here or else here) Sai Baba said: “Very soon, the entire world will be united. In fact, after 28 years, the world itself will become “Bharat”. Everyone will call themself a Bharatiya (one imbued with godliness — Bhagavat rathas). No one will refer to themself as belonging to this state or that state, this region or that region.” (Divine Discourse, Nov 23, 1978 - see here)
Anyone who can believe Islam, Christianity and all other faiths or atheisms can be changed is a dismally provincial yokel.
Claims that the whole world will visit Prashanthi Nilayam and Sai will be installed in every heart
“In the days ahead, the whole world will be obliged to come to Prashanthi Nilayam” (p. 320 Sanathana Sarathi December 1991)
"The whole world will be transformed into Sathya Sai Organisation and Sathya Sai will be installed in the hearts of one and all." (Sanathana Sarathi, January 1999 - page 16)
"You are going to witness the divine glory of Swami unfolding in the days to come. He will attract the whole world. There won't be place for people to stand even. You can see it for yourself, what a great change has occurred during the last one month! All are getting attracted to Swami." Discourse 16 March 2003.
If one looks at any website which collects news items from the world, one will not find the name of Sathya Sai Baba there, (unless it is an Indian subcontinent news collection).
Amazing superhuman feats were promised by Sai Baba
“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.” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. II, p. 92)
“Formerly when the Govardhanagiri (mountain) was raised aloft by a little boy, the gopis and gopalas realised that Krishna was the Lord. Now, it is not one Govardhanagiri, a whole range will be lifted, you will see!” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol.3 New Edition, p. 92). Who could believe that? Only Indians indoctrinated with Hindu mythology since childhood?
Nor did the entire world become transformed as he claimed here:- “… the whole world will be transformed into Sathya Sai Organisation and Sathya Sai will be installed in the hearts of one and all.” (Sanathana Sarathi January 1999) page 16).
Sai Baba told Sri Lankan he was reborn Vivekananda and would run Prashanthi Nilayam after SB's death.
The Sri Lankan youth, Nalin Sedera, was pointed out as this reincarnation in the 1980s by Sai Baba, but he soon rejected the claim and, of course, has nothing whatever to do with the current Prashanthi Nilayam. Devotees put their faith in that mockery of intelligence that their prematurely deceased 'Godhead' will be reborn as Prema Sai. A smart move by the self-appointed 'poorna avatar' to ensure that no one living could claim to be his successor! See a reborn Vivekananda would run his ashram after his death. Despite that, there are already claimants, and the future will almost certainly see any number of Prema Sai impostors... there are fortunes to be made. Sai Baba's ashram has not been headed by Nalin Sedera, who actually denied years ago that he believed Sai Baba's claim.
Prediction: No second coming of Christ, but instead Sai Baba manifests himself as Father of Christ
(see source of this verison of the prophesies at http://www.saibabaofindia.com/sai_baba_prophesies.htm)
"Bhagavan Baba has also overwhelmed the Christian world by declaring that it was He who sent Christ to the world, and that His incarnation had, indeed been prophesied by Christ and recorded in the Bible over 1,900 years ago. The extract of that startling revelation made by Sri Sathya Sai Baba before a group of Christians on the Christmas Day in 1975 is given below:
“There is one point that I cannot but bring to your special notice today. At the time when Jesus was merging in the supreme principle of divinity, he communicated some news to his followers which has been interpreted in a variety of ways by commentators and those who relish the writings on writings and meaning upon meaning, until it is all swelled up into a huge mess. The statement itself has been manipulated and tangled in a conundrum. The statement is simple : “He who sent me among you, will come again”, and he pointed to a lamb. The lamb is, merely a symbol, a sign. It stands for the voice ‘Ba-Ba’; the announcement was of the advent of Baba. ‘His name will be truth’. Christ declared. ‘Sathya means Truth’. ‘He wears a robe of red, a blood red robe’. (Here Baba pointed to the robe He was wearing). ‘He will be short, with crown (of hair)’. The lamb is the sign and symbol of love. Christ did not declare that He would come again, He said ‘He who sent me will come again’. That Ba-Ba is this Baba’ ( pointing to Himself)”. (See scan of the text from officially authenticated 'Sathya Sai Speaks' Volume 11, page 337)
"Sathya, the first name of Baba means Truth. “His eyes were like a flame of fire”. Baba’s eyes have such an intensity, are so full of life and seem to indicate with dazzling glow. “He wore many crowns on his head”. Baba’s Afro style hair gives it the appearance of a crown. “The robe he wore was covered with blood”, alludes to ochre robe that Baba wears. “His name is the word of God” is incidentally the meaning of Bhagavan." (The matter contained in the previous paragraphs is taken from the book ‘Uniqueness of Swami And His Teachings’ by Dr. A.Adivi Reddy.)
COMMENT: So he has "overwhelmed the Christian world"! Nothing could be further from the truth. It is sheer and total fantasy. His followers are excommunicated by the Roman Catholic Church, where his name is anathema. That's an estimated mere 2.1 billion citizens! ( see here). Neither European Protestant churches, the Anglican Church, Methodism, Mormons, Jehovas Witnesses, the Quakers nor numerous other Christian sects make so much as a mention of him. Had they done so, one could be certain that the official Sathya Sai Organization web pages would be full of every smallest detail. There are a small number of US evangelist preachers who support Sai Baba, but far from the majority, which consider worship of anyone but Jesus to be heretical.
A prophesy in the Bhagavatha taken to mean Sai Baba
"After Devaki, the consort of Vasudeva, had given birth to seven children and had offered each one of them to her brother as she had promised, the Will decided that it was time for the Advent to take place. The Bhagavatha says : “The Lord who is the Sovereign of the Universe desired to enter the mind of Vasudeva as a facet of Himself in order to confer fearlessness on good and Godly”. ‘Amsa’, the Sanskrit word used in the text rendered here as ‘facet’, is usually interpreted as meaning ‘part’. But the Universal Absolute cannot be partitioned; the ancient commentator Anandagiri elucidates the word as ‘Svechha nirmithena maayaamayena Swaroopena’ (with a body moulded by His own Will and capable of deluding the World into the belief that it is human). “Then, that indestructible Divine principle which was destined to establish peace and prosperity in the World, was accepted into her mind, as the Eastern sky accepts the moon or as the pupil receives the illuminating mantra from the guru”. (from “Pralaya 1999”, by M. R. Narendra).
The alleged 'aura' of Sai Baba: Frank Baranowski's claim
"Another strong evidence of the Divinity of Sai Baba comes from an altogether different source, Frank Baranowski, a Professor at the University of Arizona in the United States. He has the distinction of being an undisputed expert in the study of the halo that surrounds each person. According to him the aura surrounding the face of a person speaks volumes about his personality and character. The aura around the faces of ordinary mortals is nondescript and often null and void. But in the case of a person who is superhuman and embodiment of love, the aura is expansive and its luster extends to the sky which is limitless. Frank Baranowski was bewildered and enthralled to see the aura surrounding the face of Sri Sathya Sai Baba. According to him, it was a white and pink aura, the colour of love. The aura became golden like the Sun and turned into the blue colour of love when the Bhajans were sung. This aura signified the boundless energy of love. The eyes shone with diamond like brilliance. Professor Baranowski had no hesitation in affirming that the aura-wise Sri Sathya Sai Baba is God. During his long career, he had the occasion to see the aura of many famous and illustrious persons. But never before had he witnessed the white, pink and blue aura stretching upon the azure sky above, spreading the golden hues of Sun and the diamond-like brilliance transmitting the tremendous energy of love."

Dr. Frank Baranowski (died 2002) was an American regression therapist, specialized in research on auras, the energy patterns that surround all living beings, and worked at the university of Arizona. He was supposedly an expert in bio-magnetic field radiation photography. He has photographed and interpreted the auras for numerous men and women using the ultra-sensitive Kirlian camera. He saw and met Sathya Sai Baba in the 1970s and claimed he saw a vast aura around him. His perceptions are quoted in the commentary to the Richard Bock film ‘Aura of Divinity’ ( made in the 1970s in 2 parts).
Dr. Baranowski is widely quoted as having written or stated: "Now, I have always been able to see the human aura. The auras around average people extend as much as three to five feet. Auras are composed of every imaginable colour and these colours change as a person's emotional, physical and mental states change. In general, whenever the colour blue is evident in a person's aura, it is an indication of deep spirituality; green is a healing color; yellow indicates high intelligence; and red means anger or frustration.
The colour pink, which is rarely seen, typifies a person capable of selfless love, and this was the colour that Sathya Sai Baba had around Him. The aura around Sathya Sai Baba went beyond the building reaching thirty or forty feet in all directions. Never having seen any aura like this before, my first reaction was to look for fluorescent lights, which may have been shining on Him. But as I watched, the beautiful pink energy pattern moved as He moved; there was no doubt that this was His aura.
I have had the pleasure of meeting such personalities as ex-president Gerald Ford, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands, and Pope John Paul II, and I have studied their auras as well as tens of thousands of others, I say this not as a testimonial but as a fact; not one person I have ever seen has an aura to compare to the size and colour of Sathya Sai Baba's aura."
"In 1939, Semyon Kirlian discovered by accident that if an object on a photographic plate is subjected to a high-voltage electric field, an image is created on the plate. The image looks like a colored halo or coronal discharge. This image is said to be a physical manifestation of the spiritual aura or "life force" which allegedly surrounds each living thing.
Actually, what is recorded is due to quite natural phenomena such as pressure, electrical grounding, humidity and temperature. Changes in moisture (which may reflect changes in emotions), barometric pressure, and voltage, among other things, will produce different 'auras'." http://skepdic.com/kirlian.html
In summary, "The human body does,
in fact, give off certain radiations,
including weak electromagnetic
emanations (from the electrical
activity of the nerves), chemical
emissions (some of which may be
detected, for instance, as body odor),
sonic waves (from the physical actions
within the body), etc. Paranormalists
sometimes equate these radiations with the aura (Permutt 1988, 57-58), but they do not represent a single, unified phenomenon, nor have they been shown to have the mystical properties attributed to auras."
of the human aura has been scientifically discredited as pseudo-science, and has been used in lucrative business in speculative New Age
'spirituality' and outright fraud by

Prediction: In an ancient Arabic book by name “Mehdi Moud” in which the prophesies made by Prophet Mohammed were recorded many centuries ago, it was mentioned that God Himself would descend on earth in human form with the following signs by which He could be recognised:
“His hair will be profuse. His front teeth will be spaced apart. He will have a mole on His cheek. He will not have beard but will be clean shaven. His clothing will be like flame. He will wear two robes. The colour of His face will sometimes be like copper, sometimes yellow like gold and sometimes like the moon. His legs will be those of a young girl. All the teachings of all the religions of the world will be in His heart from birth. All the science and knowledge of the world from the beginning of time will be in His head. He will give gifts that are light in weight, His devotees will crane their necks to see Him. He will live for 95 years on earth. In the last twenty years of His life time He will be the king of the whole world but at that time (A.D. 2000) only two-thirds of the world will believe Him. Muslims will only recognize Him nine years before His passing away from the world”.
The Chaitanya Jyothi museum Sai Baba got buillt at his Prashanthi ashram is designed to trumpet his name and fame as the avatar of th age and this includes the propagation of a large number of alleged (but actually invented and bogus) prophesies - statements often of a generalised nature which by and large cannot possible be verified as being true or as having occurred. See scans from the Chatianya Jyothi book published by Sathya Sai Books and Publications Trust:-
All the prophesies of substantive results (shown on the right) have, but for the tree planting, failed to be fulfilled. Their wording is sometimes vague, but even so those which are at all clear are definitively false. There is no documentation of these to be found in any ancient Sanskrit source - they are patently fabricated inventions to increase his following among those who set store by such claims
The claim in the above of "showing himself simultaneously in many places" or bi-location was investigated by parapsychologist Erlendur Haraldsson and found to be without substance. Further, there has never been anything remotely like 'universal worship' of him and he did not retain any youthful look, having both visibly and mentally degenerated into senility in his last years and dying from multiple organ failure at least a decade before his various predictions of his own death.
