In May 1990, we arrived in India to spend one year with Sai Baba. He granted us an interview, and told us to publish this book. He named the book Vision of Sai, repeating it three times–“Vision of Sai, Vision of Sai, Vision of Sai.” Rita Bruce’s first contact with Sathya Sai Baba came out of desperation. She found herself in a personal crisis of marriage and family while the nation was also fighting to hold itself together as it faced issues of civil rights, the Vietnam Way, the deaths of leaders like Martin Luther King and John Kennedy; the worldher world was falling apart. In the midst of this chaos, she called to a higher power for guidance. This book tells her story. It’s full of practical advice.
For example, Sai Baba shares his four rules to remove anger:
- Physically walk away. As we get angry, we create a strong anger vibration energy. The longer we stay in the field of energy, the more influenced we are. We must remove ourselves from an angry situation immediately.
- Lie down. When our spine is horizontal, we cannot get angry. Lying down prevents the ascent of anger energy.
- Drink a glass of room temperature water. The water will bring our body temperature down and restore balance in our bodies.
- Look in the mirror. We can then see the ridiculous look on our faces and then anger can turn into laughter. This is very practice advice!
If you are a Sai Baba devotee, you will feel the kinship and love in Rita Bruce’s writing. If you are new to Sai Baba, you will gain a greater understanding of this amazing Avatar and his vision.
