‘World Avatar’ Sathya Sai Baba’s Troubled Trail
Posted by Barry Pittard on August 31, 2008
In any clear reading of the officially published works of Sathya Sai Baba, there are zig-zagging trails of anomaly.
The Troubled Trail
One sees glaring contradictions, unfulfilled prophecies and broken promises. The multi-colored and pretty ‘balloons’ that he has for so many decades floated – supposedly for the delight of all humanity – keep on popping, their limp remnants scattered far and wide.
The eyes of faith are blind to the absurdities – or, if the oddities are pointed out to his believers, they will justify them in one way or another – for example, by citing his oft-stated saying “Love Me for My mystery”. The procrustean bed works by both length and width.
For example, he has said, way back when the Beatles were but pups:
I must tell you that you are luckier than men of previous generations. The accumulated merit of many previous births must have granted you this luck. You have got Me and it is your duty now to develop this relationship that you have achieved by sheer good fortune. In four or five years’ time, you will see Yogis [those who are united with God] and Maharishis [great seers] and Munis [silent sages] crowding here and you may not have such chances of asking Me questions and getting the answers, of approaching Me and directly speaking to Me. (Sathya Sai Speaks – I, 174-5; Sept. 27, 1960)
Long Time Not Adventing
It is now not “four of five years time” but popping up on five decades later.
The context of his September 1960 prophecy makes it clear that the general public attending Puttaparthi gatherings will be privy to these wondrous manifestations. But of the panoply of saints and sages? One’s eyes strain in vain. Of politicians across the broad spectrum – yes, those aplenty. The topmost brass in the armed services – yes, their medals add to the dazzle of Puttaparthi. Of top cops – they are all over the place. Of the foremost judiciary, the diplomats, the industrialists, and so on – no end of them.
