I'm a medical doctor (general practitioner) in Malaysia, and I frequent a Sai Baba devotee's house on Thursdays where they sing bhajans (devotional songs) on that day. Many miracles happen in her house, chiefly the formation of vibuthi (sacred ash) upon pictures of Sathya Sai Baba and Shirdi Sai Baba. She's an elderly lady devotee by the name of "Banthula Achamma," but we all call her "Babamma" because she is so immersed in Baba's devotion, and Sathya Sai Baba also refers to her as Babamma in dreams. She's a very poor lady, unmarried, aged about 66 years and spends her entire life doing service for the sick, bedridden, and helpless people. Sometimes I take photographs of the miracles in her house and post them in the internet. Sometimes I frame some calander cuttings of Baba's pictures and keep them on her altar for Baba's blessing. Some of these pictures of Sai Baba are then given to people who would like such a picture but don't have one.

Two such pictures are seen in this photo, and, curiously, vibuthi materialized upon them too. These are seen as white specks which are vibuthi clumps sticking to the picture. I took this photo just about 2 weeks ago (November, 1998).
