A Former Centimillionaire Speaks Of His Teacher


Isaac Tigrett, Sai Baba, And The Hard Rock Cafe



Isaac Tigrett as a young man was playing with

his brother. There was an accident and his

brother died. His second brother killed himself.

His parents never spoke again.  It took Tigrett

many years to deal with this extreme sadness.


He had had psychic phenomena since the age of 13.

Norman Vincent Peale was a friend of his family

and told his parents not to worry about his psychic abilities.


He was in a metaphysical visitation told to

buy the book The Secret Life of Plants by Peter Tompkins

and Christopher Bird.The authors told him it was a big failure,

though it was published by Harper and was their big Christmas book.

6 weeks after he bought the rights to the book it hit

the NY Times best seller list and stayed there for 57

weeks.  Stevie Wonder became his partner, and did

the sound track to the film.


He began to found the Hard Rock Cafes, and they grow

to 40 outlets on several continents.


He was working many hours a day.  In California, he

was driving his Porsche at 90 mph

while intoxicated and found it going over a cliff.

Suddenly a man materialized in mid air and held him

as he and the car went down the cliff. He was unharmed.

The car was totaled.  The rescuing man disappeared.

A while later in 1977 high on a drug he had an epileptic fit

 he was in Colorado. He choked to death. His spirit

came out of the top of his head. He was looking down

at his body. He hard a voice "Your time is not yet.

Call your guru's name." He had swallowed his tongue. The same

man materialized, slapped him on the back bringing his

soul back into his body, and pulled his tongue out of

his throat. He had been resurrected.


In an Aurangabad hotel Tigrett saw a picture of the

man who had rescued him. It was Sathya Sai Baba,

believed by over 100 million people to be the

Yugavatar or avatar of the age. Tigrett flew to

India to thank Baba. He did not receive an interview

in 1973 nor did he when he went every year for 14 more years.

He broke a record, the only Westerner to come so many

times without an interview.


During this time some of Baba's followers were suggesting

that perhaps he should end his connection to his restaurant

chain, which was involved in selling animal flesh and alcohol.

When after 15 years he sold his 40 outlet chain, he received an



He gave 54 million dollars for the creation of one of the world's

best equipped hospitals in Bangalore, India, one which does

not charge anyone, has numberless volunteer physicians, nurses,

and other staff, and has done 10,000 free heart operations

a year along with countless other operations and procedures.

Western insurance companies send clients to India for these

free operations. 

“I got a message from my master,” Tigrett explained. “He said, ‘Live very simply, very humbly, in a small place, no decorations, no fancy bits and pieces.’ And so Tigrett sold his large home and his art collection. (see Peter Maass link)
