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
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”.

“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”.
