Sathya Sai Baba Sect and Its Hidden Agendas. A Caution
Posted by Barry Pittard on May 30, 2009
Sathya Sai Baba sect devotees around the world speak constantly of Truth, Right Conduct, Peace, Love and Non-Violence. They would link up with you, smile happily with you, act in a manner that has every appearance of professional and ethical responsibility. But there is a hidden agenda. What is more, core leaders keep a great deal hidden from the rank-and-file members. This means that the latter are all the more convincing when they interface with their communities – for they come across as honest, decent and nice people. They often are.
They seek to enter into shared endeavours with you in regard to your schools, civic and religious organizations, your municipal, state and central governments. The Interfaith movement is but one of the areas the sect seeks to work its way into. We have documentation that show some links to the White House, prior to the Barach Obama Administration. Certainly, Bill and Hillary Clinton had links to prominent Sathya Sai Baba personnel. My dear friend the late V.K Narasimhan, the great Indian newspaper editor who was very close to Sathya Sai Baba and on whose last book (on Teilhard de Chardin) I did editing work, informed me of this connection of the Clintons. Mrs Clinton wished to meet Sai Baba, but the security experts deemed that the difficulties were too great to overcome, he told me.
There are also links to mainstream religious groups, whose halls they hire and whose social service and cultural programs they find ways – to tailor their content and influence. They are directed to omit mention of Sai Baba’s claims to be God fully incarnate come to save the world in his own lifetime.
One may wonder, by the way, why, for example, Church organizations would hire their halls to others than their own faith. One reason stems from a motive that is surely admirable: A wish on the part of some religionists to reach out to others and show respect for religious diversity.
No doubt of it, Sai Baba devotees do worthy works of social uplift, but also in fact have agendas that they keep from you under tight seals of prohibition as instructed by the guru and his core servitors and worldwide center leaders of the Sathya Sai Organization.
