Derren Brown’s Magic Trumps Sathya Sai Baba’s

Posted by Barry Pittard on September 8, 2008

Would Sathya Sai Baba be happy to let the students in his education system see Derren Brown, the great British magician?

Or devotees to start to consider that he (SSB) is not all that he has proclaimed himself to be – which is the ALL, incarnated in the fullest expression of the Divine in the history of mankind. See The Decline and Fall of the Showman Empire

Assorted Reactions To Sai Baba’s ‘Magic’

Many Sathya Sai Baba devotees, and those who have left him, have caught him out in his tricks. Some respond almost casually by saying that it is just his “Leela” (infinite playfulness). Some go through a great wrestle, but settle with some such explanation as that he was deceiving simply to test the devotee’s faith. Still others grant that the deception was there but take refuge in events bearing considerable marks of the miraculous but which have taken place in many parts around the world, such as in devotees’ homes, and thus far away from the physical presence of their teacher. Some limply say yes he does do those tricks but look at all the good he is doing, as though good can hardly be done without the need for deception. Others are deeply alienated by the deception – sometimes related to apparent fumbling, dropping the secreted sacred ash (vibhuti) pellets that he ‘materializes’, for example, or carelessly leaving the type of objects he ‘materializes’ lying under cushions, etc., where a devotee accidentally discovers them.

Some Things Not Even Top Magicians Can Trick You About

After twenty-five years of knowing many devotees from around the world, and being present on such occasions, it is my view that the issue of apparently supra-physical events occurring around the world, but related to Sathya Sai Baba, is fraught with difficulty. There needs to be proper investigation. Certainly, the assumption that duplicity is involved does not fly. Too many of us from many countries have witnessed such occurrences (whatever may be the causative principle inherent in them) to see that they rise far above the trite, the spooky and can be quite ineffable. What is so stark a contrast is, however,  the evidence relating to his clandestine moral misconduct, and likewise of other discordances, such as, for example, the cover-up of most terrible scandals. There are, too, the high number of demonstrable anomalies in his discourses over the years, and the unfulfilled promises and prophecies. See especially Brian Steel‘s incisive work in this latter area at:

Master Magician Educates Via Magic. He Casts But Breaks Spells

Tricks can be played – compellingly. And whether by a master magician or even by one with a small knowledge of a few adroit prestidigitations or cunning suggestions. The following Urls are readily accessible. You might be, in a sense, in the hands of one of the world’s greatest magicians, Derren Brown from the UK but he, unlike a reprehensible trickster, will not keep you in his grip. You get to go home. In fact Brown is intentionally mass-educating on a vast scale, as well as simply entertaining. Below are the links for a quick and spell-binding ‘crash course’:
