Late Sri Ra.Ganapati was a very close devotee of Bhagawan and a deep scholar of scriptural texts in various languages. He has authored a biography series named “Baba: Satya Sai” which is considered a magnificent tribute to the life of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Following is an incident mentioned in one of the volumes:
His (Swami’s) college students had the privilege to see another unique creation in the Ootacamund Summer Course in June 1976.
Swami, who declared that He would live to see ninety six years in this body, mentioned that eighteen important institutions would be established by Him all over India in the remaining forty six years, and circled His hand. Immediately there appeared in His hand a big medal with the map of India engraved. There were inscribed therein the eighteen institutions that are to appear in the next near-half-century. Not only that, the medal also carried the important 'achievements-to-be' of Swami in the future, in microscopic Devanagiri characters in the Sanskrit language." (Baba: Satya Sai Part 2, Ra.Ganapati, Page 85)
The above incident was mentioned in the book “Sai, Thy Kingdom Come” as a proof that Swami was not speaking in Lunar Years and that many things are yet to happen in Sathya Sai Avatar. Here is the excerpt from the book:
What needs to be noted here is that Swami not only mentions that He would live till 96, but also indicates He would be present for 46 years after 1976. Swami was 50 at that time and that is why He talks about the “remaining 46 years” of total 96 years. Since He indirectly acknowledges His actual age at that time in regular calendar years, it is only logical to assume that the 96 and 46 years mentioned are also in regular calendar years. He could not have been using two different calendars at the same time. Moreover, after 1976 (till 2011), Swami was in His body only for 35 years. It is quite obvious that 35 standard calendar years cannot be equivalent to 46 years of any calendar, let alone a lunar one.
The following audio clipping has Bhagawan’s original Discourse with respect to the above mentioned incident. It also contains some other amazing revelations that are NOT TO BE MISSED!
This audio clipping had some other amazing revelations as well that point to Swami's return. The incident also clearly proves that Swami was not speaking in Lunar Years and that many things are yet to happen in Sathya Sai Avatar.
The following is a transcript of most of the speech (Swami was speaking in Telegu with an English translator):

“What I have materialised contains the map of India and contains all the 18 different components of India. And on each component is shown where the memorial stupas, which will represent the work done by Me, or the work that is to be done in each of the 18 states of India, is being written and is available in pictorial form on this medallion which I have just now materialised. And on the medallion is inscribed in Sanskrit words the works and the future tasks which I am going to fulfill.
This body in which I have come is going to be present for another 46 years from now onwards. In those 46 years, whatever dharma sthapana, whatever work will be done by Me, in each one of the states and in the country itself, and what kind of dharma sthapana, what kind of colleges, what kind of education will be established, is all written now, for the next 46 years, the program is now written on the medallion that has been materialised.
Not only this. Which boy will be entrusted the task, in which of the 18 states, is also written on this medallion. If there is anyone who can read the Sanskrit script, he can read it very well, what is written on this.
In the case of Ramakrishna Paramahansa, he had to use only one or two persons – Vivekananda and Brahmananda, who were in the form of sanyasis. You don’t have to become sanyasis. In this particular task of mine, I am going to use you young people, in a large measure as you are, putting you on the right path, use you as instruments for doing all that is intended to be done and all what is described here on this particular materialised item.
And why do you hanker after these things? The person who has produced this is here and He belongs to you. Why do you want to look at what has been produced? I, who have produced this, I belong to you. I will look after you and I will tell you what to do and slowly, don’t be in a haste, whatever has been described here, whatever I intend to do in the next 46 years and who I am going to use and how I am going to use, how I will put on the right path will all be described by me to you, item by item in due course. Don’t be in a haste, only remember that you should take the determination and should appreciate the task which you are called upon to do, and you should determine to follow the task and take the right path. This is all that you have to do, the rest will be looked after by Me. I belong to you and I am with you. And why do you think of what I have produced? Moreover in future you will see me in many different forms which are manifestations of Myself.
Swami has, right from the beginning, the plan to spread divinity and divine power all over the world. For the sake of it, Swami has established educational institutes and in the name of education, brought the students here. How these sound waves and these electrical waves and Jyotir power will find you in future. When Swami is just talking in the auditorium, Swami may be seen in mandir, and when Swami is in the auditorium, He may be seen in the classroom actually through His Jyotir power.
It is easy, safe but what is essential is that you should experience. You will all experience it, you will all enjoy it. You will also distribute and spread the word. You will expand your heart. This is the primary goal of our institute and aim of our institute…
And I also resolve that very soon, I’ll be launching a massive program, revitalising of ancient customs, of ancient treasures, of ancient traditions and all the scriptural truths amongst all peoples of all lands. You need have no doubt whatsoever that we shall be successful. Victory is bound to ours. Don’t give yourself to doubts of distrust. Don’t become doubting Thomas’s. We shall very soon be blowing the conch of victory around, this is a certainty, this is a certainty.
Embodiments of love, what the future holds is beyond your understanding but I can see what the future is going to be like. A time will come when the whole world will be at my feet. A time will come when the whole world will rejoice in having understood my true divinity, my true nature. It is a great effort that I am making, thereby I am confining Myself, I am not letting My glory spread all on its own, all of a sudden... But certainly a day will come when the people of the world would have recognised what Swami is, His Glory, His majesty, His grandeur. And they will all come flocking in their lakhs and millions.
You have an opportunity of sitting so close to Me, understand this truth now, make the most of the opportunities which are coming your way, plunge into constructive activities, listen to Swami’s words, live in His love, experience His bliss which is very much your own. Don’t throw away this golden opportunity.
The world will very soon become a big Prashanti Nilayam by itself…this diamond which is a priceless entity is subject to any number of hardships which is cutting here, cutting there. The more you cut, the more brilliant it becomes. So also a creeper is cut so that it becomes more beautiful….
…those people, those organisations which are not able to take kindly to this glory which is spreading in the form of Sai, in the form of His organisation, are taking to Me, to devalue, to degrade, to mislead people at large. But be rest assured that any of these attempts will prove to be nothing and more they do the more will be the glory, the more will be the grandeur and quicker will be the pace at which these noble things will be spreading far and wide.”
The key points of the discourse:
- He is to be in His physical form for 46 years more. In 1976 Sai was 50 years old, which means that by the time of His ‘death’ (2011) He still had 11 years more. By deduction we can see that the Sathya Sai avatar must return in order for this prophecy to be fulfilled.
- There will be stupas and educational institutes in all 18 states of India and that the heads of these institutes are ‘pre-ordained’ (they were born for the task).
- The young people, such as those He was speaking to, were to be used as divine instruments to achieve the fulfilment of the prophecy. These young people will not need to renounce worldly life, they will simply have to experience the power, grace and bliss of Sai and get on the right path by becoming useful, productive members of society.
- His program will succeed in completely revitalising the ancient Vedic traditions and truths (sanatana dharma) on earth The whole world will come to understand that Sai is indeed God and the entire earth will become a Prashanti Nilayam.
- He is holding back the power of His will, ‘confining’ Himself for the time being. Negative aspects need to be ‘cut away’ in order for the organisation / mission to progress correctly.
- Wicked people and wicked organisations that try to stop the establishment of Sai’s program will always fail. The more they try, the quicker and more grandiose will be His victory.
- This is a golden opportunity for all of us and it is very important not to throw it away.
- Stupa: A monument in the form of a large pillar.
- Dharma sthapana: Establishment of dharma.
- Sanyasi: A renunciate.
- Prashanti Nilayam: ‘Abode of the highest peace’, the name of Sathya Sai Baba’s main ashram in Andhra Pradesh, India.
- Sanatana dharma: ‘Eternal wisdom / righteousness’, the true basis of all religious, spiritual, mystical knowledge.
- Jyoti power: ‘light power’.
