Call For Media and Government Investigation

Disquiet In India On Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by Barry Pittard on November 11, 2010

Despite a profound black ban by most of the Indian media on news inimical to Sathya Sai Baba and his cult, various forces of dissent in India continue to protest Sathya Sai Baba related visits involving Sathya Sai Baba devotee Chief Minister of the State of Maharashtra, Ashok Chavan. The two news reports below are months apart. 

 In the second report, our ‘old’ acquaintance, Shrivraj Patil, the former Indian Home Minister rates a mention. Patil is one of a number of deeply disgraced former government officials who are devotees of Sathya Sai Baba.  One cannot but wonder whether, in his role as India’s ministerial guardian of internal security,  he had been listening far too believingly to his guru’s badly failed prophecies, instead of to the shrewder species of Indian government security advisor.

Innumerable are Sathya Sai Baba’s failed predictions (just as are his broken promises of healing, places in his education institutions, that he will travel to this and that country, and so on). One of the tragedies of India is that so many of her leaders rush off, at great expense, to listen to the prognostications of gurus and other fortune tellers. His editors have made a desperate, but eventually hopeless to expunge some of his more damaging statements from the official Sai literature. See:  The Quiet Weeding Out Of Sathya Sai Baba’s Embarrassing Statements.

Here is but one of his wildly mistaken predictions.  He made it to the American Connie Shaw in an interview in January 2002 on what she says was her thirty-first visit to him:  www.saibaba.ws/reports/connieshaw.htm

Baba: Really, no joking (He made some invisible writing in the air) …
five years more. In 2007 there will be no more war. Peace on earth.”

Connie: Five more years?! Then really, truly the war will be over?”

Baba: Yes, you will see.

Connie: Then what about the Golden Age (of Peace and Plenty which
will last for a thousand years) – when will that actually be here?

Baba (Predictably, heh-heh): The Golden Age must begin in each
person’s heart. Then only can we have peace on earth. Each must
start now to make the Golden Age in his heart.

Connie: But Swami, we’re all doing the best we can in that
(department) now. I mean when will (all of) humanity agree “This is
the Golden Age – here, now…?

Baba: In five years. 2007. By then. All must do (their part).”-

Baba: Really, no joking (He made some invisible writing in the air) …
five years more. In 2007 there will be no more war. Peace on earth.”

Connie: Five more years?! Then really, truly the war will be over?”

Baba: Yes, you will see.

the Golden Age – here, now…?

Baba: In five years. 2007. By then. All must do (their part).”

In his  Convocation address, 22 October 2008, Sathya Sai Baba – in an utterance that the history of terrorism discloses as tragically crass – said:

 “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.” 

Patil was forced to resign. See the articles:

Chief Minister-elect Ashok Chavan ignored protests by anti-superstition  activists and hosted controversial spiritual guru Sri Sathya Sai Baba at his official residence, Varsha, on Sunday. Off limits to the media, Varsha looked festive – floral arches and red carpets greeted Sai Baba (82) and his entourage.
A political leader, requesting anonymity, said Chavan  and his family performed padyapooja (prayer at the feet) of the guru and later hosted a sumptuous maha prasadam (auspicious lunch) for the guests and devotees including family friends and former Union home minister Shivraj Patil, among several other Congress and NCP leaders.

While anti-superstition  activists phoned news channels and newspapers to protest, Chavan called the programme “my personal matter and nothing to do with politics”.

Narendra Dabholkar, president of Andhashraddha Nirmal Samiti (organisation for the eradication of superstition),  said from Pune: “Chavan has disregarded the Indian Constitution, which calls for a scientific approach to everything. He should have taken a  cue from former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru, who in his entire political career did not visit or worship any baba.”

The Shiv Sena, which often  violently enforces a version of Hindutva ideology, protested Chavan’s move. “We have no complaints if Chavan visits Sai  Baba at his ashram. But Varsha is not Chavan’s personal property. It belongs to the state’s 10 crore people, so no such event should be held there,” said Subhash Desai, the Sena’s group leader in the Assembly.
