Sathya Sai Baba Sparks Political Furore

Posted by Barry Pittard on February 21, 2007

Sathya Sai Baba had long consumately mastered – but is now fast losing – the art of playing all things to all politicians, and keeping out of political turmoils. A few recent headlines from Indian newspapers (see below) reveal how his latest “divine” pronouncements have produced a political storm. His former wooing skills ensured for himself formidable political protection for decades, irrespective of what party or coalition ruled the day.

Evidence keeps coming of his serious loss of grip.

    he had his hayday, but things are starting to unravel now. I was a great believer in his “miracles” because of the many eyewitness accounts that were reported. It seems the whole thing was an elaborate stage-managed humungous hoax.


  2. Hi ggw,

    So many former devotees had extraordinary experiences – ones which, when the orthodoxies of both religionists and rationalists have been cut through by future findings in the sciences, will be acknowledged as both sublime AND rationally comprehensible when a greater state of knowledge is established.

    Those Sai devotees who speak as if they have had these wonderful experiences, which alone confer the truth about who and what Sai Baba is, assume far too much. Many former devotees have had the same incredible exeriences. In brief, my position is: yes, a great deal of stage-management, a great deal of fakery BUT still other things unexplained and seemingly inconsistent. I used to want to explore and write about these things, and perhaps interact with those who are equipped to do explorative scientific work on them. But first things first – there are prodigious crimes and injustices.

    That the sublime and the evil can appear to go hand in hand is going to be a tough issue to resolve, if it is ever resolved. It is this difficulty, precisely, which calls for trusty old stand-by’s like Occam’s Razor, cultivating commonsense – which may be more uncommon than we would like to think – and being simple and true to one’s heart, which demands a listening, patient and heedful quality. Only this will assist us if we are to respond well to the deep distress of those many who make primary allegations of shocking treatment at the hands of Sai Baba – for example of sexual abuse, complicity in and cover-up of the June 1993 police killings in his bedroom, massive misuse (for reasons of great pomp and opulence) of financial donations from around the world, and so on.
