-SATYA SAI BABA
A yogi named Satya Saibaba was becoming famous in south India, as he would materialize ash in his palm, jewels and other items for his devotees. In letter dated March 2nd, 1963, a devotee had written describing Satya’s powers. In response, Eruch Joked, “To keep such a one as him among the mandali would be of great help in all respects!”
Baba commented, “These are the powers of a tantric.”
On another occasion, Ivy Duce wrote inquiring if Satya Sai Baba was on fourth plane and perhaps misusing his occult powers. Baba replied that he was a tantric (magician) and using tantric powers of his so-called “miracles,” which were magical tricks.
