Perhaps. Parhaps not.
Sai Baba has said that he will not die before he turns 96 years of age. And he has said, that his hair will remain black until his death. His hair is still black and he is past 80 years of age.

I suggest, that we have a talk about that in year 2021 and see if he will be alive or not, while we at the same time follow the "black hair dye" all the way to Andhra Pradesh and his Prasanthi Nilayam (called "The Highest Abode"). 

I tell you, he is not a "nobody" like Krishnamurti. I have had a few encounters with him.

  Ok. The World Teacher thing is fun but the truth is that Theosophist have 
  been flying the wrong carpet on it since the idea floated out of Annie and 
  the Bishop's hats. 

  First, there really has never been an identifiable person who could be 
  considered a "World Teacher" who had any serious impact in his lifetime. The 
  Buddha was just another local nutcase and Jesus got himself killed. So 
  this business about finding out who the next "World Teacher" was going to be 
  makes about as much sense as trying to find out who will be the next Michael 
  Jackson (in the hope of aborting him before he can appear) and all the fuss 
  over whether it was Krishnamurti or Aleister Crowley or even L. Ron 
  Hubbard is missing the point.

  We can ignore crooks like Sai Baba Booey and crazy old Ben Creme for the 

  If there were to be a world teacher, that individual would not have to 
  appear in public at all. He could be totally obscure, sitting in his living 
  room, watching reruns of old game shows on cable, an putting the information 
  directly into the minds of the people prepared to receive it without them 
  even knowing that he exists or that the information, the ideas as it were, 
  came from any source other than their own minds. The techniques are 
  certainly simple enough. Anyone can master them in a few days. Which is why the 
  dugpa stuff is so silly. There is nothing they can do that anyone else 
  cannot do and probably are.

  It is obvious that the idea of a World Teacher, wandering the earth 
  spreading teaching to the hungry masses is a simple failure to understand how 
  information can be spread. It is from a mindset locked into archaic and 
  fundamentally clumsy means of communication, voice, the written word, personal 
  appearance, even video. There is no need for any of that and one wonders 
  why those called masters of the wisdom, who frankly do not, in retrospect, 
  seem to have been masters of much of anything but falling off their flying 
  carpets, would not have realized that. 

  The search is a waste of time and energy. If there really is a world 
  teacher running around loose somewhere, he has no need to be found, no desire to 
  be public. That would just get in the way and be a distraction.

  It is time to face reality and forget all the nonsense that has been 
  written in the past by people who either did not know what they were talking 
  about or who had a vested interest in public ignorance.
