A Letter from Howard Murphet
Volume 2 Issue 18 Oct 2004 Feature Articles

Murphet stored this advice away in his brain, and continued his wanderings, in the course of which, he came across a yogi. This was a turning point. Let us hear about it from Murphet himself.

I first heard the name of Sathya Sai Baba from a wandering yogi. He had not himself met this Holy Man, he said, nor been to his ashram at a village called Puttaparthi. This, he had heard, was a difficult place to reach, being in the wilds of the interior; one had to do the last part of the journey on a bullock cart or on foot over rough tracks. Still, the Swami was no doubt worth the effort, the yogi thought, if I had the time and interested in phenomena. He was known to have Siddhis [occult powers] and to be a great miracle-worker.

“What kind of miracles?” I asked.
“Well, it is said that he can, for instance, produce objects from nowhere. Of course, there are other men who have some of the Siddhis.They can do a few super-normal feats, but from the reports, Sai Baba’s powers are much greater. And he performs miracles frequently. Anyone can see them.”
