Sathya Sai Baba Continues To Ail
Posted by Barry Pittard on September 12, 2008
Mrs Geetha Reddy, Tourism Minister of Sathya Sai Baba’s State, Andhra Pradesh, had to provide a helping hand to the supposed Divine Hand of one who said that we would not see him age after his 60’s birthday. Devotees honest enough to admit it would have to attest that he has made many mistaken prophecies about them in interviews. He has also made them about himself, including in regard to his health and physical appearance in ensuing years.
See videos which reveal Sathya Sai Baba as unable to cut his birthday cakes any longer.
In October 2007, he precipitated a huge fiasco. See:
Reports keep coming of him exhibiting quite senile behavior, and his minders making – sometimes very absurdist – efforts to cover up for his debility. See Sathya Sai Baba’s Tips To Keep Ageing Away
For long he has avoided public comment on the Indian political scene. However, more recently he made statements of a kind he has gone decades without making. See Sai Baba Sparks Political Furore
In a discourse at his hospital in Whitefield outside Bangalore on June 3, 1995, Sathya Sai Baba said:
“Purity, patience and perseverance. With these three you are bound to acquire good health and bliss. You may believe it or not. But the truth is that these three are responsible for my health (Arogya) and bliss (Ananda). I am always happy. I should like to run but there is no place where I can do so. I can lift anybody at this age.” (Sanathana Sarathi July 1995, p. 173)
Likewise, from Sanathana Sarathi, November 1998, we read:
Many people wonder that I look so young even at the age of 73. The reason is that I have three P’s in Me. One is Purity, the second is Patience and the third is Perseverance. It is because of these three that I shall remain like this for any number of years to come. (cheers. So, everyone should cultivate these three.
Every now and then, he gives an update:
“I do not suffer form any kind of disease because there is no trace of greed in Me. That is why I am always healthy…” “There is no trace of anger or hatred in Me and hence everyone loves Me” (Sanathana Sarathi September 2001, page 257f)
