Can you please change the vocabulary from died to "Attained Samadhi" under his display picture. Because its not appropriate to say died for saints. Shravs45 (talk) 12:19, 17 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done: Wikipedia is written from a neutral point of view. That means we abstain from religious honorifics. RandomCanadian (talk / contribs) 13:36, 17 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Presenting fiction as facts?[edit]

The text under the section titled 'Transfer of spiritual power'. The claims / events mentioned underneath appear to be based on hearsay and can not be classified as historical truth. There are other sections like this which frankly have assertions which are probably valid only for the devotees of Sai Baba, suggest renaming such sections to something like - "Transfer of spiritual power according to believers" The kind of assertions made in such sections are presented as events which actually happened but are extraordinary claims needing rigorous proof , which of course we do not have. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:10, 3 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Editors, any updates? Sample these sentences in the section 'Transfer of spiritual power'
During Chaturmasya, when Gopal Deshmukh was in the gardens, a group of men jealous of his growing closeness to Sai Baba, hurled a brick at him. Gopal Deshmukh with his powers, kept the brick suspended in mid air. Yet another hooligan hurled another brick which hit Gopal Deshmukh. Young Baba pleaded with him to let him go away, as it was his own presence that was the cause of this trauma. Yet Gopal Deshmukh refused, medicated his injury with a shred of his own cloth and announced to Baba that it was time for his spiritual power to be transferred to Young Baba.
If this is not preposterous, then what is? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Suksane (talkcontribs) 18:29, 17 June 2021 (UTC)[reply]
