Satya Sai Baba

Many people had investigated Satya Sai Baba's claims of supernatural powers, and found them to be hollow.  Most stage magicians can do better than Satya Sai Baba.  Both P. C. Sorkar and B. Premanand were outspoken critics of Satya Sai Baba, exposing his spiritual powers as cheap magician's tricks.

Though this God-man too, died like a mere human.  He might have fooled humans all his life, but couldn't fool death itself.  If the man was so holy, why did he spend his last few days in a hospital, surrounded by real doctors?  Why would a person with a direct channel to God need doctors as intermediaries?  Why would a real spiritual guru need so much property and wealth, and why was he always asking for more money?
