Sai Baba Materializes Vibhuti in Quantity Many Times the Volume of the Pot From Which It Pours Out

No book about amazing supernatural abilities would be complete without including a treatise about Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Man of Miracles. Sai Baba is considered to be Divinity in human form, an incarnation of God, an Avatar. Tens of millions of people from 160 countries have experienced his Divinity. He has performed many supernatural miracles. His supernatural powers defy description. He has raised people from the dead. He resurrected Walter Cowan, who died from a heart attack and was pronounced dead by doctors. As a result of the resurrection Walter’s diabetic condition and diseased kidneys were also cured. A detailed account of this amazing miracle as told by both Sai Baba and Mr. Cowan is reported in Dr. John S. Hislop’s Book, My Baba and I. Sai Baba also resurrected Mr. V. Radhakrishna, who was dead for several days. Rigor mortis had set in. The body had turned blue and had begun to smell in the normal course of decomposition. For details about this resurrection please see: Resurrection.

Sai Baba has healed many people; the lame, blind and those suffering from a variety of diseases, both minor and terminal. Also, he always knows peoples’ minds and thoughts.

However, Sai Baba is best known for his routine materializations of vibhuti and any objects desired by him. Such supernatural materializations are produced out of the elements by Sai Baba’s will as evidence, not as exhibition of powers, in order to help bring people to faith, devotion, and inquiry and realization of their own reality. Hundreds of thousands of people have witnessed Sai Baba make a gentle wave of his hand and produce vibhuti (a white ash) for them to place on their tongue and forehead. The supernatural curative power of the vibhuti is well-known to devotees.

Author Howard Murphet has investigated the supernatural miracles of Sathya Sai Baba for decades. In his book, Man of Miracles, he reports about a materialization of a coin that Sai Baba did for him.

“One evening a party of us were sitting on the carpet in his suite; Ramanatha Reddy, the doctor, the young men, Iris and myself where there. Swami asked me the year of my birth, and when I told him, he said that he would get for me an American coin minted there in that same year.

He began to circle his down-turned hand in the air in front of us, making perhaps half a dozen small circles, saying the while: “It’s coming now…coming…here it is!”

Then he closed his hand and held it before me, smiling as if enjoying my eager expectancy. When the coin dropped from his hand to mine, I noted first that it was heavy and golden. On closer examination I found, to my delight, that it was a genuine milled American ten-dollar coin, with the year of my birth stamped beneath a profile head of the Statue of Liberty.

“Born the same year as you,” Swami smiled.

What would skeptics say about this, I wondered. Would they suggest that Baba carried around with him a stock of coins so that he would give one to match my year of birth? Such old American coins, now long out of circulation, would not be easy for him to obtain in India through normal channels.

Additional accounts of Sai Baba's supernatural powers can be read at: Supernatural Powers.

Another remarkable materialization was that of a golden statue of Krishna playing the flute. Please see the following link for photographs and details: Krishna statue.

And, another remarkable materialization was of a rare book composed in 1530 A.D. with more details in it about Jesus Christ than the Bible. Please see the following link for photographs and details: Rare book.
