Call For Media and Government Investigation

of Sathya Sai Baba And his worldwide cult, the Sathya Sai Organization

Sathya Sai Organization: Factors Far Beyond Known Critiques Undermine It

Posted by Barry Pittard on April 2, 2009

Some, in their great sense of betrayal by Sai Baba and his international Sathya Sai Organization, have poured out their anguish to various widely-respected groups in the community, including to their leaderships. This was bound to happen. For an example of how the Sai Organization – while strongly cloaking their agendas of working for a Sathya Sai Baba-ruled world – attempts to work its way into both religious and civic mainstreams, See:

‘Secret Swami’ Cult Recruits At Prime Public Venues.

These domains of community awareness – well beyond the reach of exposure activists and advocates – include accounts of Sai Baba’s sexual molestation of young males, but go well beyond this.  

Many Sathya Sai Organization members know, all too very well, that their stocks have greatly dropped in wider communities.

The email to me of a very prominent Hindu leader states but one example of this sort of occurrence:

See:  Sathya Sai Baba: ‘Considerable Concern’ In Wider Hindu Community

There is considerable concern among the Hindu Community, especially among the educated. It is very hard to get any action from the temples as they do not wish to cause difficulties with the Sathya Sai Baba groups. People are starting to distance themselves from Sathya Sai Baba. It’s going to be gradual process of education. The biggest impact it appears was the ‘The Secret Swami’ … it seems it has had a tremendous negative effect on Sathya Sai Baba”. 

One needs not to look to Sai Baba critics for this type of information. Those Sai Baba followers or ex-followers who want to get at the facts can honestly face up to what is happening within their own communities.

Another phenomenon that the Sai sect has not been able to counter is this: family members, relations, friends, workmates, professional colleagues and so on have made their own enquires. With these, in a concerned way, they have confronted Sai devotees, bringing to their attention information from which, by virtue of heavy cultic censorship, they have not been privy too.
