The famous psychic Wolf Messing (Birth 10-9-1899; Death 8-11-1974) was born in a small village Gora Kaiwarida near Warsaw.

Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroeder have written about him in their famous book “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”.

The Divine personality Sri Sathya Sai Baba of Puttaparthi, Andhra Pradesh, India has also mentioned about him in his speech.

Sai Baba was born on 23rd November 1926 and attained Maha Samadhi on 24th April 2011.



I was present in the Prasanthi Nilayam auditorium on 22-11-1980 when the famous incident was revealed by him about Messing.

It was 1937. Baba was at Kamanapur in Cuddappa District of Andhra Pradesh. One day, while he was with his friends near the railway station one person came running towards him. It was Messing. He took Baba in his arms and uttered the words, “I am so happy”.

He waited in front of Baba’s house for three days. And while leaving, He has written, ‘Here lives a Divine Person’, on the door.


The full incident as narrated by Baba could be read in Sathya Sai Speaks Volume 14, chapter 57.

On 31st August 2002 Baba in his speech revealed more about Messing’s visits to him.

Messing visited India again with a Kirlian camera which was capable of taking photographs of the aura around human beings.

On knowing that Baba was in Bangalore he came straight to Bangalore and met the Principal Narendra.

He told him that Baba was a divine person. He is verily God. Seeing his physical form everybody is deluded.


He wanted to see the aura of the divine personality.

He clicked his camera and was able to see the entire place was permeated with light.

Baba’s body was engulfed in white light which symbolizes purity. Narendra also had seen the photo.

He met Baba there. In the evening there was a meeting in which teachers and students were participated. On seeing Baba he said, “You are My everything.” He spoke to the students also.



He stayed there for ten days and Bana taught all that had to be taught.

Messing left Bangalore. Narendra had received a letter from him after a few days. The letter informed him that he was working for God.

One day Narendra expressed some doubts and Baba was clarifying them. Suddenly Messing arrived there. How he came there was a mystery. He came, He met Baba and suddenly disappeared. It was not possible for all to see this.

Baba said that divinity is highly mysterious.



Thus we come to know that the great psychic wonder visited Baba at least three times in his life time and through him we are assured the divinity of Baba.

Full details could be read from Sathya Sai Speaks Volume 35, chapter 16.

The famous incidents of Messing with Gandhi, Stalin, Einstein are all very interesting which is a subject for a separate article.

He has written an auto biography also.

  1. Psychics and psychic phenomena have a disturbing streak in them. It is because basically they are not spiritual. Many kinds of phenomena are grouped under this label, but there are differences in cause and effect ie the source of their origin, and the effect it has on one’s life. Some like Messing are born with this gift, like a musical or mathematical genius; others like Peter Hurkos get this ability suddenly due to some accident. They have helped some mundane causes, but I do not think they have uplifted anyone morally or spiritually.
    The ultimate test of spirituality is whether it makes us better human beings. This can never be said of any kind of psychic phenomena. They may predict the future, but they never provide us a guide to navigate the ocean that is life.

    Psychics like Messing or Peter Hurkos did exhibit their power. There are many others now claiming many skills like reading the future, seeing or visiting the angels and receiving their messages, etc. At best these are occult phenomena, not spiritual.

    I think the only genuine psychic who also upheld moral and spiritual values was Edgar Cayce. But he was a psychic only under trance, and the teachings came from a source higher or other than his mind: he merely said what he ‘saw’ or ‘received’. Out of trance, he could never say those things. But he was a simple practising Christian, humble and God-fearing. He did not make use of his ability to make money, though name and fame came to him along with lot of criticism.

    He left behind a large body of recorded readings given for individuals, taken down in shorthand, subsequently continuously researched.

    He stunned and outraged the Christian world by upholding rebirth ( called reincarnation) and the law of Karma! He also outraged the medical profession by providing herbal cures for illnesses, like our grandmothers or old village doctors used to do, while he was not a trained medical professional.

    He learned from his own teachings and lived in that light. He stressed that we had to control our mind ( and not give it a free reign ) as we become what we think ( Yat bhavam, tat bhavati, as we say! He also said that we should not remain inactive in the face of fate or karma , but actively seek divine grace ( very much like what Tirujnanasambandha has stressed in his hymns:
    அவ்வினைக் கிவ்வினையாம் என்பது அறிவீர்
    உய்வினை நாடாதிருப்பதும் உந்தமக்கு ஊனமன்றே !
    கைவினைசெய்து எம்பிரான் கழல் போற்றுதும் நாம் அடியோம்
    செய்வினை வந்தெமைத் தீண்டப்பெறா திரு நீலகண்டம்.

    Thus we find that Edgar Cayce provided us with spiritual compass through his psychic ability, though he himself was not sure of the source! But the psychic tree of Cayce is known by its fruit- which is leading a purposeful life with high spiritual principles.

    I do not know whether this test is met by other psychics.

    We cannot fathom why Satya Sai Baba met Messing. ( like He met Karunanidhi !) God moves in a mysterious way! We cannot fathom such things. We simply bow,

  2. Sorry, the first line of Jnanasambandha’s hymn should read:
    அவ்வினைக் கிவ்வினையாம் என்று சொல்லுமஃது அறிவீர்.
