Without giving away its thesis, I will say that "Sai, Thy Kingdom Come" by Sreejith Narayan is a great read. And that is certainly the least of it.
The author's calm, measured, irrefutably logical and impeccably researched presentation is beyond reproach. If one follows carefully to its conclusion, this book's premise is something one cannot easily ignore or forget, no matter what one's biases are.
As for myself and my husband, Ted Henry, Sri Sathya Sai Baba has not skipped a beat in His interaction with us. His amusing leelas, lessons and dreams and Divine Presence remain as constant after the Mahasamadhi as before. Our Souljourns Seva and love for Him are redoubled, if anything. He has done for us and given to us more than we could or would have ever imagined or asked. We are permanently submerged in overwhelming gratitude.
And yet...though Ted and I could ask for nothing more, what about those who did not have the opportunity to enjoy Him and benefit?
And yet...the world situation seems to require some even more drastic shock to arrest its current trajectory and to transform this world into "One vast loving kin" as our Swami once predicted.
And yet...it was a relief to have "Sai, Thy Kingdom Come" put words put to many of our hidden thoughts, questions, unvoiced secret suspicions.
And we have learned from experience that we surely must love His "uncertainty".
And above all, nothing is beyond Him!
We would all only rejoice if graced to witness the individual and world transformation that would inevitably ensue if what Sreejith Narayan so carefully and courageously suggests in "Sai, Thy Kingdom Come" is part of The Golden Age, the Sathya Yuga.
