Puttaparthi, April 27, 2011: Spiritual guru Sathya Sai Baba’s last rites began at his abode in Puttaparthi, Andhra Pradesh on Wednesday morning.



Amid the chanting of hymns, the body of the 86-year-old spiritual guru was brought in a casket for burial at the Sai Kulwant Hall inside his abode Prashanti Nilayam. The casket was d****d in the Tricolour.




Although thousands of devotees reached Puttaparthi, the burial was not accessible to the public. Only a chosen few, such as Sai Baba’s immediate family and members of the Sathya Sai Trust, were allowed in.

The last rites were performed by Sathya Sai Baba’s nephew and trust member R.J. Ratnakar Raju (son of Baba’s younger brother R. Janakiramaiah). The spiritual guru, who has been accorded a state funeral, was given a 21-gun salute.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and Union Ministers S.M. Krishna and Ambika Sonia had on Tuesday joined thousands of mourners in paying homage to Sai Baba.

In keeping with the secular traditions at Prashanti Nilayam, Sai bhajans invoking Shiva, Ram, Allah and Jesus Christ were rendered as Singh and Sonia spent 10 minutes near the body of the spiritual leader, who had a mass following worldwide.

Sathya Sai Baba passed away on Sunday after prolonged hospitalisation. His body had been kept for public viewing for two days. Till Tuesday evening, around 3.5 lakh people are estimated to have visited Prashanti Nilayam and paid their homage to the spiritual guru.
