Call For Media and Government Investigation

of Sathya Sai Baba And his worldwide cult, the Sathya Sai Organization

‘Secret Swami’ Cult Recruits At Prime Public Venues

Posted by Barry Pittard on June 23, 2008

Although there is a long history of Sathya Sai Baba’s utterances which forbid promoting of himself, his official worldwide Sathya Sai Organization promotes strongly, at his, of course, the secret Swami’s sub voce behest.

This zeal to recruit (to use the proper word) tends to take place in exceptionally prestigious venues. What does the cult  need for its survival – given over a decade of unrelenting exposure? It needs to provide for the stupendously expensive upkeep and maintenance of its costly and sumptuous buildings and various programs that glorify Sathya Sai Baba as God of Gods.

But the wherewithal is not likely to proceed from his ever-circling ‘miraculous’ hand. Survival decrees that it is the left hand that needs to be in operation, and fast.

And despite his both old and recent (2007) promises – see Will World Accept Sathya Sai Baba? He Says Yes. Very Soon

– he almost certainly Note stoney, mask-like face. Parkinsons Disease?is going nowhere that would exceed the capacity of his wheelchair and the nervy hands of those continually needing to prop him up – see Sathya Sai Baba’s Tips To Keep Ageing Away

Here are a few of the recruitment centers, bound to be familiar haunts of the wealthy and powerful, whose own beneficent hands, the cult stewards will have to hope and possibly even pray, will, if not quite so miraculously, underwrite the ‘secret swami (pace BBC) – but now, in a way, slightly more public:

Cooper’s Union, New York; Town Hall, Melbourne; Copley International Conference Center, San Diego; Super Dome, Sydney; La Mirada Theatre, Hilton Ballroom (both Los Angeles); Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Chicago; etc. See article by Robert Priddy and Barry Pittard: Sai Organization’s Spending Spree In Super Dome, Sydney.

The Hilton Ballroom. A Las Angeles ballroom embraces an ‘Avatar’. No less than  Again, recruitment in swish places, claiming hearts and wallets, not a few movie stars among them. Such as?

Goldie Hawn. Still a golden heart for the gold spinning guru?

Dare Songstress Nora Jones Touch Sai Baba?

Note: Sathya Sai Baba interests who are touting for money for a Hollywood film to be made (a story move extolling him and tentatively titled “My Guy”) with famed singer Nora Jones, daughter of celebrated Indian sitarist Ravi Shankar, being named as a likely star of the movie. (BUT – supposing a more powerful movie can be made showing the dark side of Sathya Sai Baba? Of this, let us see a bit later)
