SAI BABA - MAN OF MIRACLES By Howard Murphet

This book is intended for three classes of readers; one, the many for whom the mysterious, marvellous and miraculous of life hold interest and appeal; two, the searchers after spiritual light who have not yet found what they seek. Many in both of these classes, especially the former, will not even have heard of Sathya Sai Baba of India, let alone seen his miracles and felt his great influence. The third class of readers for whom the book is intended, the Sai devotees, will perhaps feel that the presentation is too cold for them. But I beg them to remember that pure devotional literature is of interest only to devotees, and here I am primarily concerned with a much wider field.

MY BABA & I By Dr. John S. Hislop.
The author, an experienced spiritual seeker, explores the depth and grandeur of Sai Baba’s spiritual philosophy. The book encompasses the life, miracles, teachings and writings of this unique and spiritual personage - Sathya Sai Baba
Hislop, a close devotee of Sai Baba's, gives an easy to read account of his spiritual journey with the master. Baba's teachings and some of the author's personal experiences with Baba's miracles are covered in the book. Highly recommended.(also available in Spanish Edition)


SAI BABA - THE HOLY MAN AND THE PSYCHIATRIST By Dr. Samuel H. Sandweiss.
A thought provoking book on Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, dealing with the author’s rich experiences with Baba. This book is a goldmine of Sai teachings in the context of a scrupulously scientific approach. These genuinely moving accounts reveal wonderful facets of Baba’s personality.
This was the first book that I read and I found it to be very interesting and helpful. I was experiencing the same type of doubt expressed by the author at the beginning of the book so it was very helpful to me. The reason that I actually chose this book to begin with was that I felt that a psychiatrist would be much less likely to fall into mass hysteria.


CONVERSATIONS WITH BHAGAVAN SRI SATHYA SAI BABA
By Dr. John S. Hislop.

The author, through this book, shares with us the benefit of his interviews with Baba and the privilege that He accorded him by way of answering his questions on a wide variety of spiritual topics, applicable for all.
