Many Power Brokers Follow Failed Prophet Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by Barry Pittard on December 29, 2008

Even in most recent pronouncements, Sathya Sai Baba can be seen making prophecies that are bound to be falsified before long, just as, well before today (see Related Readings, below) his many other absurdities have been shown to be seriously unfulfilled.

Much of this would not matter to non Sai Baba followers the world over. However, they had best know that cult members in many countries are in positions of power and influence, and this is especially rife – indeed widely across political and cultural divides – in India. Communities, governments and institutions need to exercise the utmost caution when officials of the International Sathya Sai Organization approach them. See article and photos:

‘Secret Swami’ Cult Recruits At Prime Public Venues

These should be enough to alert the wider public as to the profound opulence by which Sai Baba vaunts himself as the greatest savior the world has ever known, assisted by what he refers to as ‘the’ divine organization via which he will achieve his mission, most of it accomplished before he dies circa 2022 AD.
……………………………………………………………….

Sathya Sai Baba Prophecizes – Whole World Will Be Become India’s in 28 Years

In his Convocation Discourse 2008 (see http://www.sathyasai.org/discour/2008/d081122.html):
“Very soon, the entire world will be united. In fact, after 28 years, the world itself will become “Bharat”. Everyone will call themself a Bharatiya (one imbued with godliness — Bhagavat rathas). No one will refer to themself as belonging to this state or that state, this region or that region. You may go to any country, but you refer to yourself as belonging to the country of Bharat. For example, there may be Karnataka State or Tamil Nadu State, etc., but, they are all parts of a larger country called Bharat. Without the country, the States cannot exist. You are all Bharatiyas first and last. Hence, you say that you came from Bharat. “

Revealing Materials On Sai Baba Of India

Posted by Barry Pittard on December 21, 2008

In a surprise visit to Puttaparthi and other official Sathya Sai Baba locales in late 2008, Brian Steel acquired a series of books and audio materials.
There are several notable scholarly and other strengths observable in Brian Steel’s vast opus on the Sathya Sai phenomenon.
Yet again, these qualities come into play in his most recent offering: Recent books about Sathya Sai Baba. Part 2. Different Types of Hagiography Brian Steel, December 2008

By Their Documents We Shall Know Them

One of these strengths is his persistent use of, and great familiarity with, the large load (and, from a critical point of view, lode) of official and other public devotee documents. Through his emphasis on these sources – as distinct from other sources of information – Steel has been able to expose Sai Baba’s astounding array of self-generated myths, failed predictions, incorrect scientific and historical references, and, all in all, a seemingly endless series of contradictions and anomalies, as well as a great deal of highly flawed hagiography. See my article:

Cult Exposure. By Their Documents Ye Shall Know Them

in which I noted:

It is by reference to the conflicted words and actions of Sathya Sai Baba’s leaders that the profound failure of intellectual and moral integrity of his operation at large is made manifest to honest enquirers. Indeed Robert Priddy’s main website is entitled: Sathya Sai Baba In Word And Action

Steel’s Emphasis On SS Org Documents Complements Other Forms Of Analysis

An example of the ‘other sources of information’ to which I just referred are those accounts from many parts of the world where subjects have reported their direct experiences of sexual abuse of boys and young men, of the cover up by the ashram and local, state and central government organs in India of circumstances surrounding the killings in Sai Baba’s bedroom on April 6, 1993, various ashram scams – e.g., those relating to the sale of apartments at the Prashanthi Nilayam, Puttaparthi, and Brindavan, Kadugodi – and so forth.

It is not that Brian Steel gainsays the significance of these other accounts, although I have long thought that he likes to be on the more solid empirical ground, where the often self-exposing, officially recorded words of the so-called God, and of his apostles, can hardly be swallowed back.  Steel has, in fact, continued – although without the fetters of a blind belief which he, like others of us were once weighed down by – in a line of expertise which was his, as an important published writer within the Sai literary canon especially in the Sai bibliographical area, when he was a follower for twelve years of Sathya Sai Baba.

Recently, Brian Steel returned from a surprise visit to Puttaparthi bearing a swag of documents and audiovisual material that, under his critical scrutiny, reveal far more mischief than their devotion-blinded authors surely ever dreamed would be perceptible to commonsense and reason. Their works taken uncritically by devotees will, of course, only reinforce persistent Sai mythmaking, but, if exposed to the world at large, will not be likely to win friends and influence people.

Official Sai Audiovisuals Show Steadily Ageing Sai Baba (Who Said He Would Not Age After His 60th Birthday!)

In his fascinating article looking at some of the material he brought back with him, under the subheading ‘Official Promotion of Sathya Sai Baba – Audiovisual’

Brian Steel says:

I have viewed four of these 60-minute $2 DVDs (purchased at a SSO Centre in India). Three of them, in a series called Spiritual Blossoms (possibly produced for the guru’s 80 th Birthday in 2005), offer DVD versions of short archival clips from many old videos from the 1960s to the 1990s (with an added background bhajan accompaniment – in Part 2 of Volume 3, SSB sings bhajans himself).

The fourth DVD which I purchased in India was With the LORD in the Mountains (www.sssbpt.org, April 2006) This is the official record of SSB’s 2006 visit to his summer centre, Sai Sruti, in Kodaikanal, with his entourage, his students and some devotees (including some foreigners). The footage gives graphic evidence of the steady physical decline of Sathya Sai Baba in the past four or five years. This has brought about major changes in his former flamboyant darshan style, which now consists mainly of wheelchair-bound appearances, with several students constantly hovering in attendance, particularly to support him if he attempts to stand up or move about. His conversation and personal contact with devotees is much more limited and less spontaneous than in his heyday but the DVD shows that in 2006 he was still able to accept many letters and to exchange some words from his custom-built wheelchair. Recent 2008 official website footage (especially from http://www.saicast.org) shows how his physical condition has continued to decline in the past two years and how painful it seems for him to make discourses. His face now remains expressionless for most of the time or seems to display something akin to disorientation.

Sathya Sai Baba can be documented by any conscientious reader as having made contradictory statements and egregious historical and scientific blunders. These include his remarks on Jesus Christ and Martin Luther . For Steel’s detailed and sharply contextualized discussion, see: Sai Baba and Christianity. Some Observations (2002). Steel remarks here the alarming “extent of Sai Baba’s inventiveness”. This can be instructively read in concert with his Basic Notes On Sai Baba’s Credibility Problem (2004)

How Cult Exposure Spreads Far And Wide (Sai Baba Case)

Posted by Barry Pittard on December 19, 2008

In exposing those cultic abuses, anomalies, derelictions of duty of care, lack of accountability, and so on, dissenters from a cult such as that of Sathya Sai Baba experience many advantages to their cause that may not be immediately obvious.

Impact Extends Far Beyond The Range Of Major Dissenters

After reading the evidence extensively available on Sathya Sai Baba former devotee sites, those troubled by their experiences are able to crystalize their thoughts, and make their own independent investigation. Many soon find that there is a large body of evidence which, for the protection of privacy, cannot be put up on the Internet.

Frequently, emerging from a belief system is a slow-going, painful process. Leave-takers gradually discover other confirmatory cases far beyond those unearthed by primary writers such as Robert Priddy, Brian Steel and myself. (Our blog and websites are referenced below). Indeed, in its many months of intensive investigation, the BBC in the making of ‘The Secret Swami’ (like other media that has seriously investigated) uncovered evidence that was beyond the range of internationally networked former devotees. See:

The BBC’s ‘The Secret Swami’ – A Revision
BBC’s ‘The Secret Swami’ and British Press Praise

Indian Minister Shields Sai Baba on BBC television
Probed On Male Sex Abuse, Sai Baba Evicts BBC TV Team
Guru Sex Abuse Testimony To BBC – After Years of Silence
Undisputable facts about Sathya Sai Baba by BBC

Those who discover that what former devotee critics have written is true begin to network with others who have confirming experiences. This activity occurs both within and far beyond the organized former follower network. One learns about it in roundabout, sometimes (for such is life) very coincidental ways.

This ever-burgeoning contact is not conducted only via the Internet but in many ways – such as in family, friendship and workplace circles, chance meetings when shopping, in the workplace, through other electronic media such as Skype, and in many other ways.

Former Devotees DO Continue Community Service

A common cry from apologists is:  why don’t you people do something worthwhile with your lives, such as serve the needy in your communities? This indicates a profound misunderstanding of two crucial situations:

– The core leaders of Sathya Sai Organization, and some rank-and-file members, know perfectly well that the concerns are not frivolous, and that many who have left the organization have spent decades of utmost dedicated service.

– Former devotees – including those highly active in the exposure – very typically continue to serve others, such as in their wider communities. They are loving parents and grandparents, and dedicated to their professions, trades, and other worthy activities. Those who write and research on these matters may appear – to the superficial – as though this is all that they do in life. The fact is that a lifetime of professional work has led to habits of discipline, speed of execution in work styles, and finding an array of balances concerning life’s joys, sorrows and duties.

Organized Attackers Often Belie Their Own Cult Leaders’ Spiritual Teachings

In our contact with other groups who have well-reputed organizations exposing of cover up and spiritual betrayal, we repeatedly find that the same tactics are used against those who blow the whistle: culumny, defamation, libel, distortion of their position, name-calling, branding, depersonalization, denunciatory, belittling and spiteful language, attacking individuals rather than genuinely considering their argument (argumentum ad hominem), culumny, defamation, libel, various other forms of invalid argument, and so on. Apologists for the remiss leader and cult not only attack former followers but also any media – such as the BBC and major media in various parts of the world – in a way that would insist that everybody else is at fault and the cult alone is correct.

Hasty Cover Up Of Sai Baba ‘No bombs in India’ Blunder

Posted by Barry Pittard on December 7, 2008

Robert Priddy, former head of the Sathya Sai Organization in Norway, predicted that Sai Baba’s deeply flawed statement (see below) would, once the egregious blunder was recognised, be quickly removed from the Internet. He was right, as he has observed on his blogsite at:

http://robertpriddy.wordpress.com

Sathya Sai Baba’s omniscient-sounding statement is one not only falsified by the terrorist attacks on Mumbai – in which many destructive detonations inside the hotels (in short, bombs, which some pro Sai Baba forces would appear to wish away) occurred quite apart from the guns and grenades that were so horrifically used – but also a long string of bombings in India by terrorists of various hues.

 

Sathya Sai Baba’s Extraordinary, False Prediction

“India is the only place where people are not worried about any attacks.  In America , Germany and other countries, they cant eat well or sleep well. There is fear of bombs always in those countries. But in India, there is no fear of bombs. India will never have any such attacks.” Sathya Sai Baba 22-10-2008.

 

Increasing Unreality Of Some Sathya Sai Baba’s Statements

There is an unreality in Sai Baba’s pronouncements – as there has been in a serious of statements in more recent years, suggesting some degenerative disease. See:

 

Sai Baba-A Degenerative Disease?

 

Sathya Sai Baba’s Tips To Keep Ageing Away
Sai Baba To Be Seen In Moon? But Where Was Moon?

Sathya Sai Baba’s Amazing Predictions

Sai Baba Sparks Political Furore

When ‘Divine’ Magnetism Becomes A Dead Weight

BUT – There Have Been Many Bomb Blasts!

Below is the sadly all-too-revealing Indian cartoon that illustrates the folly of Sai Baba’s statements about the amazing safety of India and the sleeplessness, gastric detonations and general chaos “in America, Germany and other countries”.

When the cult’s charismatic leader is so confused in ways difficult to cover up, it is little wonder that his apologists go to such procrustian lengths in – vainly! – attempting to make him look good – as in the Hans Christian Anderson fable of the emperor with no clothes. Bombs are no longer bombs – unless seen as lotus bombs of his Amazing Grace. Common words stretch heavenwards to some esoteric meaning – except, of course, when the cult leader’s statements turn out correct in the world of the straightforward or in the world of good guesswork. Then there is great devotee rejoicing, and dancing in the streets. Even if real bombs are going off. Even if words sometimes mean what they mean and sometimes don’t mean what they mean …

Robert Priddy’s Accurate (and non-mystical) Prediction

In his article Sathya Sai Convocation Discourse 2008 cut down. Posted by robertpriddy on December 3, 2008, he writes:

There is no doubt that Sathya Sai Baba said the above in his discourse on 22nd November, 2008 – even though the paragraph has been removed from the posting of the discourse on the official site (http://www.sssbpt.org/Pages/83-birthday/convocation_DD_22112008.htm).

He adds:

Further the blog site:  sathyasaibaba-life-love-spirituality.wordpress.com, mendaciously claims to give the “full text” but only contains a foreshortened version!

The same paragraph which was so embarrassing that the official Sai website and the main Sai blogsite removed it surreptitiously was reported verbatim in a post at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/saibabaofindia/message/14926

saibabaofindia woke up and cut out the huge blunder

(Cover-up by saibabaofindia.com)

Posted by robertpriddy on December 5, 2008

Priddy points out that saibabaoindia.com (an unofficial ‘front’ composed of those closely associated with official Puttaparthi) has:

also removed their web page in which they rashly posted what Sai Baba said only days before the Mumbai terror attacks. (The have reposted the Convocation address without the blunder, and on another different URL.

Shivraj Patil Falls From Home Ministry

Posted by Barry Pittard on December 2, 2008

Breaking NEWS. Shivraj Patil, a major follower of Sathya Sai Baba, has resigned as India’s Home Minister.

Grave questions have been asked about Patil’s competence and that of other high officials who were meant to be guarding India’s security.

Comment:  Whichever Indian government is in power, Sathya Sai Baba has many devotees who are in all ranks to the highest pinnacle of power. The same is true for the armed services, the judiciary, business and finance, industry, the arts and sciences, and so forth.

………………………………..

See my entry of yesterday, revealing yet another of Sai Baba’s unfulfilled and preposterous prophecies. This time tragically unfulfilled. Yet this is the would-be King-of-Kings and Lord-of-Lords, in whom, like Shivraj Patil,  countless of India’s key leaders put their faith:

Home Minister Shivraj Patil resigns over Mumbai – ruling party

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Home Minister Shivraj Patil has submitted his resignation over the attacks in Mumbai that killed nearly 200 people, the ruling Congress party said on Sunday.

“Shivraj Patil has tendered his resignation,” Veerappa Moily, a senior Congress party leader, told Reuters.

It was not immediately known if Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had accepted the resignation

Officials quit over India attacks

(BBC NEWS) Indian Home Minister Shivraj Patil and national security adviser MK Narayanan have submitted their resignations in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks.

Mumbai attacks probed as India-Pakistan relations strained

(CNN) Prime Minister Manmohan Singh accepted the resignation of Patil, the home minister, and immediately named Finance Minister P. Chidambaram to take over the post, according to a source in the prime minister’s office.

Patil, whose ministry oversees internal security, had been accused of failing to improve intelligence before the attacks, said N. Ram, editor-in-chief of The Hindu, a major Indian newspaper.

“This man has been widely criticized for not being up to it and it was simply impossible that he could stay on after this,” Ram said.

“No fear of bombs” in India, Said Sai Baba a Week Before Mumbai Terrorist Attack

Posted by Barry Pittard on December 1, 2008

On November 20, just before the horrendous terrorist strike on Mumbai, Sathya Sai Baba made yet another of his statements which have been tragically faulted by events seen by an aghast world only a few days later (and, in fact, all along, by a long series of terrorist attacks in India – extraordinarily overlooked by Sathya Sai Baba in his reported statement (as see below).

Terrorist Smoke Casts Pall Over India and the World

Terrorist Smoke Casts Pall Over India and the World

… While India’s and the world’s self-promised ‘Saviour’ potters and dithers, just as the Emperor Nero fiddled while Rome burnt.

Sathya Sai Baba Statement’s Grisly Falsification A Few Days After

Here is the report of Sathya Sai Baba’s words from a discourse dated November 22 (the day before the vast and opulent birthday celebrations, see links below) – from a well-acknowleged Sathya Sai Baba reporter, R. Satish Naik (who lives close to the Puttaparthi ashram) of the well-organized Saibabaofindia group:

India is the only place where people are not worried about any attacks.  In America , Germany and other countries, they can’t eat well or sleep well. There is fear of bombs always in those countries. But in India , there is no fear of bombs. India will never have any such attacks”.

Extensive ‘Weeding’ By SSB Editors

Perhaps when it is realized, what an appalling blunder has occurred, the information will disappear, just as Sai editors have so long excised, prior to publishing discourses, glaring embarrassments such as his slips, contradictions, faulted prophesies, etc. I myself when editing for Sai Towers had occasionally a hand in such censorship, and would check with my dear friend, the late V.K. Narasimhan, editor of Sanathana Sarathi what he, at the same time, was excising, prior to publication, in regard to that magazine, which goes worldwide, as does the magazine Spiritual Impressions for which I was doing fairly extensive work.

QUOTE

As to there never being any fear of bombs in India, that is a massive mistake! So far out of touch is Sathya Sai Baba, surrounded by his gunmen and guards in his fortress ashram.  Shivraj Patil and his forerunners have presided over a long series of bomb attacks and terrible massacres of Hindus and Muslims by each other. The fear is tangible in many places, especially in Mumbai these days, of course.

There is nothing remarkable in Sathya Sai Baba making failed prophesies and predictions – he is constantly doing it! There is a regular cornucopia of false predictions, broken promises, and absurd claims of his importance to the world. (See here)
