Sai Baba appeared in physical form in Stephen Turoff's Spiritual Healing Clinic in Dawnbury, close to London. Sai Baba gave Darshan (sight of a holy man) to the patients in the waiting room and then healed a diabetes patient before he wrote the words "Stephen I am with you" on a wall in the treatment room. Sai Baba then dematerialized his body.

Only in 1969 did Sai Baba actually leave India, in the usual sense, boarding a plane for Uganda.
