I was talking to one of our Sri Lankan members the other day when he revealed that Sai Baba was a much bigger influence amongst the Hindus of western Sydney than I’d realised.
For the uninitiated Sai Baba is an popular Indian guru who considers himself greater than Christ. In his Conversations with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, Dr. John Hislop observes:
“Buddha, Christ, Mohammed and others were not Avatars. They had some divine power. Only in India are Avatars born, because only in India are the Sastras understood.”
This gives me much to ponder.
