No. 147 - Being with Baba - “The Gopi Brigade”
A Film about Sathya Sai Baba by James Redmond.
A group of Baba’s women devotees meet to share some extraordinary experiences with Him in the early days. These devotees formed one of the first group of Westerners to spend time at Swami’s ashrams in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. They talk about a golden time before the great crowds of today, when sometimes there were only 100 to 200 people during darshan and close, frequent contact with Baba was possible.
One of the “Gopis” actually lived on the ashram in Puttaparthi with her family for many years. There is a lot of laughter and lively discussion as their reunion stimulates ever more vivid memories of Swami and we recall Swami’s words about satsang being like the coals being in contact with the Fire.
This film was taped in June 1996 at the Feather Pipe Ranch in Helena, Montana, U.S.A.
This DVD is approximately 1 hour and 8 minutes
• “The Gopis” were the happy group of Krishna’s women devotees. (click here to play short clip)


No. 148 - Being with Baba - "The Rowdies*
A Film about Sathya Sai Baba by James Redmond.
A group of five of Baba’s earliest Western devotees speak movingly of their experiences with Him in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s.
At that time, before the huge crowds of today, it was much easier to get close to Baba. They have some extraordinary experiences to share and they do so in the most entertaining way. One of them, Howard Levin the author of “Good Chances”, tells some unique and very funny stories, and the man who wrote “Love is my Form” describes how Baba inspired him. As they speak, we can see the love and reverence Baba inspired in them still glowing in their faces. It is said that if you really want to see the Lord you will find Him in the eyes of His devotees.
This film was taped in June 1996 at the Feather Pipe Ranch in Helena, Montana, U.S.A. (76 minutes)
“The Rowdies” is an affectionate name Baba often calls young men.(click here to play short clip)

No. 149 - Isaac Tigrett at the 16th North and South Central Region Sai Conference, St Louis, U.S.A. - Sunday 28th May 1993

Well known as the owner of the Hard Rock Cafés, Isaac Tigrett’s story is one of faith and patience: he went to Prashanti 15 times before Swami spoke to him.
With great warmth and humility he tells how his life changed after a series of family tragedies and how Swami saved his life several times. He recounts several extraordinary experiences where Swami demonstrates His omniscience, omnipresence, compassion, sense of humour and mystery.
He expounds aspects of Swami’s philosophy and his own way of putting that philosophy into his daily life and work, notably the Hard Rock Cafés, House of Blues and the Super Specialty Hospital in Puttaparthi, for which he was the main donor.
Finally, he mentions his meditation work with Phyllis Krystal, through which he experienced Swami working in many different dimensions.
A fascinating and heart warming story. (approx. 85 minutes). (click here to play short clip)

When to Lord puts on a body, or casts it from him,

Hn enters or departs, taking the mind and senses

Away with him, as the wind steal perfume

Out of the flowers
