(Afternoon Despatch & Courier , Mumbai 23rd January, 2003
Dr. Brian O'Leary, a
former NASA scientist, astronaut, a physicist and former science and energy
policy advisor to four US Presidential candidates, is on a special visit to
India to the country's largest ashram to meet and receive the blessings of Sri
Sathya Sai Baba who is believed to preach non-violence.
Dr. O'Leary aims at
seeking his advice on the ways and means to bring about peace in the world. Dr.
O'Leary will be arriving in India on January 24.
Dr. O'Leary's visit
underlines the appeal of Sri Sathya Sai Baba who draws the attention of
presidents, prime ministers and other leaders not only from India but also from
outside the country. Parts of the appeal of the Baba, as he is called by his
followers, is that he has been preaching an unusual mixture of faiths and
encouraging religious tolerance.
Dr. O'Leary has embarked
on a mission to bring world peace by spreading the message of 'Satya' (truth),
'Dharma' (righteous action),- 'Shanti' (peace), 'Prema' (Love) and 'Ahimsa'
(Non-violence) as propagated by the Baba.
By spreading the message
of the Baba on the five eternal values. Dr. O'Leary hopes that world peace will
prevail from across the United States, India, Pakistan and Iraq.
