Chatur Nath Baba
is a sadhu renunciate
who lives in Pushkar.




Pushkar is the only city in India where there is a temple dedicated to Brahma, the creator. We met Chatur Nath Baba at his dhuni, or fire  pit, where he has lived by the side of the lake for several years. He makes 'Baba Bags',  woven purses with numerous pockets. He makes the threads from scratch, then dyes them and assembles them. Each bag takes a month to complete. Chatur Nath Baba is a kind and loving man and we are fortunate to know him.





    Sri C. Gopalan




Sri Gopalan lives in the town of Puttaparthy, India and has been a devotee of Sai Baba since 1970. He is a great practitioner of the Sanathana Sai Sanjeevini healing modality. Sri Gopalan  and his family have been blessed with Swami's grace. There are over a dozen images of Sai Baba that are producing vibhuti, the sacred ash, in Mr. Gopalan's home, including the painting below which started showing vibhuti on the very day it was completed.
