“Sai, Thy Kingdom Come” is written by Mr. Sreejith Narayan in English and translated into Tamil by Prof.C.Muthaiah. I am very happy to write the foreword for this book. This book is a collection of research material based on intellectual analysis and is very rare of its kind.
It is a wonderful work alerting us to become aware, to prepare ourselves for the forthcoming continuity of Sri Sathya Sai Avatar as per His Sankalpa (Will). Mr.Sreejith Narayan has done an intricate research work, dedicating himself to the making of this book. As referred in this book, there is nothing that is impossible for Baba. He spoke words of truth and they have never failed. He declared that He would live until the age of 96. This would mean that He will raise Himself, resurrect and come again in the near future to fulfil His words of truth. That is the crux of this book which will make us curious to read it from the beginning to the end.
After reading this book, a very deep faith and understanding would emerge in our hearts that Sri Sathya Sai Baba will come again in the same physical form in the near future with absolute certainty and there is no doubt about this.
Let us be patient! Let us pray! There are many more things for Him to achieve and establish!
Now a little more about the author of this book. Mr.Sreejith Narayan lives in New Jersey, USA. He serves as the President of the Sri Sathya Sai Baba Center of Bridgewater, involving himself in Sai Seva activities there. In January 2012 he received a sudden emerging momentum in his thoughts that Swami will reappear again. His devotion and faith in Swami's words lead to the birth of this book.
This book is expertly translated by Prof.C. Muthaiah. He was formerly a Professor of Physics. For those who speak Tamil, his translation has seeded the faith in their thoughts that Sri Sathya Sai Baba will reappear in the same form. I appreciate his work.
As told by Prof. C. Muthaiah, we must admire and adore our Swami as our own; only then we can attain the eligibility to be closer to Swami. Swami's words will never fail; whatever He says is truth and is bound to take place.
On 9th September 1960, Swami declared that “I will be in this mortal form for 59 years more and I shall certainly achieve the purpose of this avatar, do not doubt it." In the opinion of some, Swami spoke about His life time using a calendar based on the movement of the Moon in which one month consists of 27.21 days. As per this basis one may be inclined to consider that Swami lived 1133 lunar months or 94.5 lunar years. Therefore, according to this calculation when Swami left His body His age might have been 94 years. However, this calculation is not in order.
Swami not only mentions that He will be living until the age of 96, but also mentions that He will be living for 46 more years since 1976. If we calculate the years from 1976 until 2011, Swami lived for only 35 years (It is quite obvious that 35 standard calendar years cannot be equivalent to 46 lunar years, going by the calculation of 27.21 days in a lunar month). By this statement Swami assured all of us that He will be living in His human form even after the year 2020.
Baba also mentions the following:
My Word will never fail; it must happen as I will.
What I will, must take place; what I plan must succeed.
Once My Word goes forth, it must happen accordingly. Do not doubt it.
My activities and movements will never be altered, whatever one may say about them.
I never utter a word that does not have significance.
Trust in My wisdom. I do not make mistakes.
He declared once that He would live 96 years in this human body. If we take into consideration these (different calculations mentioned in the book), Swami will be coming again in the same human form after 15 months and before 36 months.
On His 65th Birthday Anniversary message, Swami made a declaration that a Super Specialty Hospital with latest technology would be constructed within the span of one year and that the first heart surgery would be performed. Even experts had doubts on this. But the Divine declaration succeeded! The Super Specialty Hospital was constructed within a year and was opened by Swami Himself on the occasion of His 66th Birthday celebration. Similarly all the foresights and events that were predicted by Swami have taken place perfectly. For this reason we the devotees of Swami should surrender with faith and confidence.
Other things to consider:
Nadi Grandha (sacred palm leaf texts) confirms Swami's Reappearance as quoted in this book.
In November 1991 issue of Sanathana Saranthi, Zeba Bashiruddin (of Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning, an ardent devotee of Sri Sathya Sai Baba) has presented an article titled “Hazrat Mehdi and Baba: Truth of a Prophecy”. (In it she has shown that all the prophecies about Hazrat Mahdi apply perfectly to Sri Sathya Sai Baba). The day of return of Mahdi is mentioned in Islamic texts as “yawm al-qiyamah” which in Arabic literally means “the Day of Resurrection”. There is no doubt; The Sai Kingdom is at hand.
In this book, Baba's declarations are provided which every Sai Devotee should follow and practice in their lives.
Remember that there is nothing in this world as powerful as the Lord's name to protect it. It is not arms and bombs that will save the world. Only God's grace should protect the world. It is man's foremost duty to pray for God's grace. Prayer is of supreme importance.
Through genuine prayer, mountains of evil can be pulverised and destroyed.
There is nothing that Divine Power cannot accomplish.
I am God and you are God too.
All the details given in this book are based upon intellectual analysis. The collection of relevant details and their presentation in an acceptable and believable manner in this book, is really a great learning experience for the devotees.
When He will come? Where He will come? As someone says, are really irrelevant questions. But the true question is whether He will appear again? He always exists and He is always with us. He is in our hearts, guiding us all. This book installs such faithful feeling in us. Every Sai Devotee should read this book and be benefited from it.
I hereby record my appreciations to the Author Mr.Sreejith Narayan and to Prof.C. Muthaiah for his expert translation.
Books of this kind should be published. For us Baba Devotees around the world, Baba is living in our hearts and guiding us. Our lives should be His divine sacred message. Let His sacred mission continue and let our lives be a sacred part of it.
