"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

All these books, especially this on Bharosha Ma (who has also now passed on) , read like voyages in a fairytale spiritual Disneyland. Page after page blows you away with a heady, inexplicable array of seeming miracles after miracles and the entire trilogy consists of feverish page turners (you really cannot put them down). But there is a dark shadow over Gwyn and co's golden sun rises: the almost schizophrenic split of the evidence for (Dr Jekyll) and against (Mr Hyde) the alleged Avatar status of so-called Hindu God-man Sathya Sai.
Apart from a brief reference to the controversy and scandals surrounding Baba (which is too easily brushed off and skipped over given the sheer epic weight of the evidence against him) all is materializing vibhuti and amrit - almost ad nauseam, there is so much of this in near monotonous repetition - in the homes frequented by Bharosha and her husband (in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Nepal).
And although Gwyn does voice doubt's which continue to assail her logical mind, by and large, as in the all-too similar phenomena which accompanies Shree Lal in South San Francisco, she is eager to embrace the ostensible miracles which just keep coming...and coming. It's definitely more Jiminy Cricket than Lemony Snicket !
There could be several explanations for this fascinating even awe inducing Baba circus: Gwyn could be a paid propagandist for the (one time) politically useful Sathya Sai industry; she could simply be a gullible lady (after all, she did spend 15 years writing romantic metaphysical fiction under the name of Eboni Snoe), or...the phenomena which she was swamped by could conceivably be true !!! If this is the case, we are left with the unsolvable paradox that an alleged homosexual predator and fraudulent miracle conjurer was able to create, at a distance, a veritable wonderland of magical marvels. But it doesn't stop here, at an ethical dilemma, but means the human mind/intellect cannot understand what is happening in these books. We simply have to throw in the towel and declare our finite minds are flabbergasted !
For Gwyn's sake, I personally hope its the latter.

The book is well written, documented with photographs and I highly recommend it to anyone curious about Bharosha Ma, a truly extraordinary woman and healer as well as Sathya Sai Baba.
