My Baba and I
Sathya Sai Baba
cover image of My Baba and I

A portrait of Sai Baba by his closest western associate.
Who is Sathya Sai Baba of India? The holy man whom millions of Indians believe to be an Avatar, an embodiment of God?
The miracles witnessed by his devotees transcend the known laws of science and parallel the miracles of Jesus, and he comes with a similar message - to bring unity and love to a despairing world.
Dr. John Hislop, a professor and author, recounts his experiences with Sathya Sai Baba during the past 17 years and tries to acquaint the reader with the depth and grandeur of Sai Baba's spiritual philosophy.
Sai Baba has said that Dr. Hislop has had more face-to-face confrontations with him than any other Western person. Dr. Hislop gives the reader a rare look into Sai baba's life, miracles, teachings, and writings.

Believe What You Like
What happened between the Scientologists and the National Association for Mental Health

"The reader is left to decide for himself why sane and intelligent people subscribe to the theories of Scientology and accept its status as a church; to decide what the real aims and objectives of the Scientologists are; and to judge the propriety of their methods, propoganda and purposes in attempting to gain a majority voice in the council of the National Association for Mental Health. The Scientologists have expressed their views frequently and publicly---now it is for the members of the public 'to believe what you like.'" Scientology claims psychiatry is a scam.
