Man In The Moon
Is Sathya Sai Baba “The Man In The Moon”?
On Wikipedia, the “Man In The Moon” article contains the following information:
“The ‘Man in the Moon’ is a mythical figure resembling a human face, perceived in the full Moon in some cultures. The figure is composed of large dark areas (the lunar maria, or seas) on the Moon’s surface. The figure’s eyes are the Mare Imbrium and Mare Serenitatis, its nose is the Sinus Aestuum, and its open mouth is the Mare Nubium and Mare Cognitum.
The conventionalized image of the Man in the Moon, unlike the vague natural appearance, bears just a very simple, wide-grinning face.
The Man in the Moon is an example of pareidolia. Other cultures perceive the silhouette of a woman, a hare, a frog, moose, or a buffalo in the full moon.
The Nepalese have a tradition that the dead go to the Moon.
In Japan and Korea, popular culture sees a rabbit making mochi and Tteok, respectively, in the moon.
Shia Muslims believe that name of Maulana Ali Ibne-Abi Talib (Muhammad’s son in law) is written on the moon. This interpretation has roots in several sayings (hadith) by Muhammad where he compares Ali with the Moon and himself to Sun. The notion is that Ali’s teaching is the light that shall guide the muslims after Muhammad has departed. There are also other esoteric interpretation of this analogy in islamic philosophy.” (Ref)
The following pictures contain outlines to supposed figures on the Moon along with the infamous Man On The Moon figure:
As one can see, these moon figures are rather vague and are very difficult to perceive without the outlines. However, as Robert Priddy (an ex-devotee) pointed out, there is a very strange and distinct outline on the Moon that is easily perceivable in relation to the Indian Guru Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Robert Priddy made several comments about Sathya Sai Baba and the “Man In The Moon” on his Anti-Sai blog and even published the following image (conceding to the striking outline of Sai Baba’s face on the Moon):
Sathya Sai Baba In The Moon?
When looking at the full Moon, one can clearly see an outline of a face within another outline of afro-like hair (see unedited American Museum Of Natural History Pictures Of the Moon: 01 - 02). When Sathya Sai Baba’s face (minus his hair) is put into the Moon’s empty face-outline, the astonishing result is readily perceptible.

Although I am unsure how many people will support Robert Priddy’s comparison between Sathya Sai Baba and the “Man In The Moon”, I find it strange that an ex-devotee fully conceded that the outline of his former guru can be seen in the Moon. Robert Priddy obsesses about his former guru on almost a daily basis and can’t seem to move beyond his anger and bitterness in relation to his former guru. It most certainly appears that Robert Priddy (while constantly howling at the Moon about Sathya Sai Baba) has gone mad. Needless to say, when Robert Priddy was a Sai Devotee, he saw Sathya Sai Baba In The Clouds and In His Green Stone Ring. Who knows where Robert Priddy will next see Sathya Sai Baba and what laughs he will bring us when he does?
About The “Moon Miracle” & “Moon Darshan” Issue
Dear friends and fellow seekers, the Vishvarupa Darshan that Sathya Sai Baba said he was going to reveal was never meant to be a “Moon Miracle” as erroneously reported in Indian Newspapers and by Ex-Devotees. On the day Baba announced he would show his Vishvarupa Darshan, the Moon was a quarter-crescent and waning. Therefore, it was never supposed to be a “Moon Darshan”.
“Prof Anil Kumar was asked to announce that today, all could see the Vishwa Viraat Roopa - Cosmic Form - towards the airport till 7 pm. Bhagawan then moved towards His residence. Half of Prasanthi Nilayam made a beeline for the airport, and at 6.15, Bhagawan also emerged from His residence and proceeded to the airport. There, Swami’s car was surrounded by devotees and had difficulty moving around - Swami could not come out of the car completely due to the crush of the crowd. After around 45 minutes at the airport, Swami started back to His residence, the car making it's way very slowly through the road which was clogged with people and vehicles.”

There have been subsequent claims by Sai devotees to seeing Sathya Sai Baba in the Moon, which are not related to the original Vishvarupa Darshan issue. These experiences are being recorded on the Sai Baba Of India Webpage Documenting Moon Darshan Sightings.

The reason for the side-by-side comparison was to highlight the outline of Sai Baba on the Moon (similar to what I have done with my composite images on this page):
