[Totally ignoring any possibility of truth in the allegations against Sai Baba and even official charges that have been filed, the Prime Minister and other governmental authorities of India vouch for the guru in a document that, according to what Dr. Michael Goldstein said, when he read a few lines of it to a crowd of 1500 people in an open meeting at a hall in Argentina on October 20, 2001, is to be signed by the President of El Salvador, the President of Guatemala and the former vice-President of the United States Al Gore.]

SRI SATHYA SAI BABA
A LIVING LEGEND
AN EMBODIMENT OF LOVE FOR ALL MANKIND
We are deeply pained and anguished by the wild reckless and concocted allegations made by certain vested interests and people against Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. We would normally expect that responsible media would ascertain the true facts before printing such calumny – especially when the person is revered globally as an embodiment of love and selfless service to humanity. Since this professional ethic has not been observed by a section of the media, we have elected to go public with this sign statement.
We are among several million people in the world who regard Sri Sathya Sai Baba as a great spiritual master and teacher. We come from different nationalities and religions and greatly admire the fact that Sathya Sai Baba asks us to become a true follower of our chosen path. His is a message of truth, right conduct, love, peace and non-violence. He always emphasizes that these universal values belong to all faiths and religious traditions.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba leads
by example. He devotes all his time and energy for the well being of society.
People from all walks of life from all parts of the world visit him in Prasanthi Nilayam (
We have had the privilege of meeting Sri Sathya Sai Baba many times and seeing him engage ceaselessly in community service projects.
We unequivocally condemn the baseless and malicious allegations being hurled upon Sathya Sai Baba in certain quarters. Great men have often faced slander in their lives. Such pitiful efforts neither diminish their glory nor slow down their resolve to achieve their mission.
May God give good sense to all who create these scurrilous stories and wisdom to all others not to pay any heed to them.
