Apuroopa means 'delightful or wonderful, rare, unique'. The name means, 'He who has delightful and wonderful powers that give delight and wonder to all'. Who else has, and where else have we experienced, all the glory of Divinity, as evinced by Baba?
Being in every heart, Baba knows all our actions, even while they are willed and planned. Being everywhere in space and always in Time, Baba makes Himself visible when He so wills, any time, anywhere even in the physical form He has assumed now. Being All-wise, Baba knows what is best for each one of us. No one with equal or more Sakthi has appeared on earth, since Lord Krishna, except the Sai Sakthi. Sai Baba at Shirdi declared He was Vasudeva. 'I am Mahalakshmi', 'I am Vithoba of Pandhari', 'I am Ganapthi', 'I am Dattatreya', 'I am Krishna', 'All this Universe is in Me', 'I am formless and everywhere'; 'all that is seen is My form'.
'Sathya' Sai Baba, the same Baba, who has come again, is as Universal and Omnipotent, as the Sai who declared, "I am the Universal Absolute, that is both immanent and transcendent". "I am Viswa-viraat swaroopa"; "I am Sarva Devatha Swaroopa".
"I am Niraakaara come in this Naraakaara". "When some one asks you, where God is, do not dodge the question giving a reply in which you have no faith, namely, "He is everywhere"! "Direct him to Puttaparthi", He has declared.
