Sathya Sai Baba’s Self-generated Mythos

Posted by Barry Pittard on October 30, 2008

At the cost of much effort in scanning the originals, Robert Priddy is gradually posting a wide cross-section of his diary material. This he gives in parallel, with his handwritten entries on one side and a typed version, with his current added comments, on the other.
Robert Priddy visited Puttaparthi many times and was one of the main contributors to Sanathana Sarathi, the Sathya Sai Baba’s official publication, which goes worldwide. As a national leader of the Sathya Sai Organization (Norway), he had access to all the internal correspondence of the Sathya Sai Organization and international meetings.
An example of the scanned material is:
Directly recorded notes (September 1990) as always made daily during my visits to the ashrams
For scholars and others who study the build-up of Sathya Sai Baba’s self-generated mythology, Robert Priddy’s scans of his careful diary-keeping over the years is an asset. Noting some early examples of Sai Baba’s mendacity even as self-reported by Sai Baba himself, Priddy writes (referring to our mutual friend the late V.K.Narasimhan, one of India’s greatest newspaper editors):

“V.K. Narasimhan recounted several times for me how Sathya Sai Baba told him about the two boys reborn as his dogs. He told V.K.N in detail how he had wilfully deceived the examiners by cheating on the behalf of the two boys. I always made diary notes directly after these conversations and have scanned a number of pages as further documentation of my various assertions”.
