When Disasters Overtake S. Sai Baba’s Promises

Posted by Barry Pittard on September 4, 2008

There are Sathya Sai Baba devotees in some of the highest echelons of power in various countries. Their faith in him may be touching but not likely to be fulfilled. Despite various statements such as that that he would not age or get sick, he looks fragile and decrepit, increasingly muttering oddities and making egregious blunders. See Sathya Sai Baba’s Tips To Keep Ageing Away.

He has said:

Usually old people have wrinkles on their faces … I do not have any signs of old age. (loud applause). There is not a single wrinkle on My face”. Sanathana Sarathi, October, 2002.

Not only does he have a sagging face that has more than a trace of some degenerative disease – giving him a mask-like expression, but for the last few years he has developed what is called ‘Turkey’s Throat’, aptly named.

Given his failed promises to stay looking young, how can any reliance be put in his promises of 1. First saving India and 2. Saving the rest of the world – and all this within the span of his own lifetime?

Faith of Major Power Brokers in Failed ‘Avatar’ of Great Concern

That his extraordinary claims are taken with ultimate seriousiousness by so many in positions of grave responsibility at highest levels in government, politics, the judiciary, high finance, the armed services, police, diplomacy, industry, science, philanthropy, etc., is surely of concern. Here are but a few of his statements over time:

“Sai holds the universe in his hand” (Conversations with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba (1993) by Dr. J. Hislop. Sathya Sai Publications and Book Trust, Puttaparthi.)

“I will have to forego the car and even the aeroplane when I move from place to place, for the crowds pressing around them will be too huge; I will have to move across the sky; yes, that too will happen, believe Me.” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. II, p. 92)

“Nothing can impede or halt the work of this Avathaara… Formerly when the Govardhanagiri (mountain) was raised aloft by a little boy, the gopis and gopalas realised that Krishna was the Lord. Now, it is not one Govardhanagiri , a whole range will be lifted, you will see!” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 3, p. 106)

“The whole world will be transformed into Sathya Sai Organisation and Sathya Sai will be installed in the hearts of one and all.” (Sanathana Sarathi, January 1999 – page 16)

Most of the Planet Does Not Know of Sathya Sai Baba

He says – whether with self-deception or more than a word of a lie – “Today the whole world is respecting Me.” (Sanathana Sarathi, Sept. 2003, p 267). In fact, most in the rest of the world have no way of knowing anything about him, least of all the people of small nations and other groupings – most of them very poor. See Human Rights World Report 2008. India In Sore Shape

If he has so abysmally failed to “clean up (his) own backyard, as he long ago promised to do, then how is he going to clean up the rest of the world?

New flood relief efforts in Bihar

Displaced woman and child in Bihar, India (31 August 2008)
Many of those who found solid ground are still awaiting food

Relief efforts are increasing in the Indian state of Bihar, hit by some of the worst flooding in years.

“More than a million people are now being housed in relief camps where they are being provided cooked food, water and medicines. But many of the camps are already overflowing and there are more people streaming in by the hour”.

Flood problems hit India’s poor but not the rich

Posted by robertpriddy on August 13, 2007. Quote:

“The help that is given, when it eventually arrives, is never sufficient to compensate the losers. Meanwhile the Indian economy races ahead and vast wealth is created, yet it is evidently NGOs and international relief agencies on which most of the survivors must depend to avoid mass hunger and disease”.

Exposing Worldwide Sathya Sai Baba Cult (Sept 08,i)

Posted by Barry Pittard on September 4, 2008

The following, mostly short, articles have appeared at: and and, in one case, at Robert Priddy’s main website –

Sathya Sai Baba In Word And Action

in the last few days. The following information is compiled at:

where there is an extensive list of blogs and articles, with the latest updates  clearly noted.

Barry Pittard. 4 September, 2008


NEW Sai Baba says his close servants live for 100 years However the very closest long-term attendants including his official biographer, Prof. N. Kasturi, his editor of his journal V.K. Narasimhan, Kutumba Rao, his pujari Padmanabha Shastri, Kanhaia Jee, and many another died well before reaching 100 years.

NEW Sathya Sai Baba’s untruths about his never-failing perfect health He claims always to have total perfect health and freedom from illness, but numerous facts belie his claims, even his own words do.

NEW Human Rights World Report 2008. India In Sore Shape World report 2008 in marked conflict with Sathya Sai Baba’s promises made over many decades. He has said that he would first “save” India and then the rest of the world – this within his own lifetime.

NEW Michael Goldstein’s chilling remarks Goldstein states that no Sai baba devotees were victims of the 9/11 World Trade Centre terrorist attack. He claims “His Miraculous Intervention on behalf of His devotees is clearly evident… They were either late or never arrived…”

NEW Sathya Sai Baba and India in-depth study Many issues covered, such as India’s profound levels of corruption and superstition, other issues that thinking Indians have great concern about like the appalling record in human rights, casteism, endemic corruption, attitudes towards women etc.

NEW Sathya Sai Baba – Proof of the pudding Does Sai Baba ever lift a finger to look after his food, clothing, rooms, cars or anything? Yet he claims he receives NO service whatever from anyone! Further he says he has always respected everyone – but he has attacked his critics with base lies and demonised them. He claims the whole world respects him, but which of his critics do? And how can billions who have never heard of him respect him?

NEW ‘World Avatar’ Sathya Sai Baba’s Troubled Trail 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.

NEW Sathya Sai Lies – part one A new series documenting and commenting on lies and untruths told in his writings and/or discourses by Sathya Sai Baba, who alleges he always speaks only truth and is omniscient as to past, present and future! He has no money or properties – but then he speaks of giving money himself! He does not publicise himself, but he does so on a huge scale constantly. He claimed his critics take money to defame him, but none are known or shown to have every accepted money from anywhere.

NEW Sathya Sai Baba Says He Dislikes Pomp One of the world’s most avid consumers of pomp and circumstance, golden thrones, sumptuous apartments – seen in countless photos on the Internet – claims he does not like it, but he either sets all of it in motions himself, or gives his blessing to such suggestions by others.
