According to the sources, he is suffering from pneumonia. Water has entered his lungs, which has caused him breathing problems.
The 85-year-old godman was admitted to the Super Specialty Hospital in Puttaparthi Monday evening. As the news of his ill-health spread in the town, shopkeepers downed shutters and hundreds of his devotes thronged Prashanti Nilayam, the abode of Sathya Sai Baba, to know about his well being.
Officials of Sri Sathya Sai Trust said the spiritual guru was recovering and there was nothing to worry. The trust has been receiving inquiries from his devotees spread across the world.
