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

Many Notable Sathya Sai Baba Cult Leaders Resign

Posted by Barry Pittard on February 18, 2011

One of the potent, indirect damages to the Sathya Sai Organization comes via the concerned activities of very large numbers of those who are non-devotee family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers in profession, business, and trade, fellow college and students,  etc.

These concerned well-wishers of devotees actively confront the followers in a way those critical writers and apostates could often not directly achieve.

Sathya Sai Baba and his leaders tell followers that they must not look at the critical writing – especially on the internet – about their leader and organization.

Is he the ‘divine’ Luddite?  Or, rather, did he think – at an early of the internet’s development about which he has several times shown crass ignorance – that telling his followers not to look at the internet would succeed in keeping them ignorant of the widespread reports of his crimes?  Reacting to the first surges of internet exposure of him, and in a cranky attempt to hold back the ever-mounting and crashing waves of the internet,  he – King Canute-like – said (Discourse of 15 October 1999:

“Swami has nothing to do with internet. Not only now, even in future also You should not indulge in such wrong activities”. 

Naughty Waves Fail To Obey King Canute

Fortunately, this constraint does not apply to those non-devotees who keenly wish for the well-being of those they know who are Sai Baba followers.

Concerned Sai devotee well-wishers DO examine the critical material which we bring to a very wide public. It is a very large group indeed, and we receive feedback from both individuals and institutions. They are no fools, and come from many socio-cultural, educational backgrounds. They are able to form their own independent view about whether prominent critics write with acceptable tones of public discourse. They see whether we argue well or badly.

The above quote shows but one of Sathya Sai Baba’s Anachronisms (historical mix-ups).

They note that we very often show, via close analysis, indicting documentation from within the Sathya Sai Organization, such as evidence in official publications of Sai Baba’s discourses, which show whole tangled trails of contradiction, hypocrisy and absurdity.

They also see our exposures of the untold lavish pomp and ceremony with which Sai Baba surrounds himself.

For many third party enquirers, all the pseudo-imperial panoply – the untold, unaccountable spurge of expense in a country so poor as India, and in a world in which even the materialistic West is having to watch its pennies – is alone decisive in forming an extremely poor opinion of Sathya Sai Baba and those who keep him propped up on his gold throne, gold processional float, opulent buildings like his twin palace, and other grossly inappropriate accessories of self-presumptive, almighty office.

Still further, they look at the prominent defenders of Sai Baba and his sect and observe levels of vituperation, name-calling, ploys of character assassination, defamation and so on which are remote from Sai Baba’s teachings, such as to speak sweetly, including to those with whom they disagree.

Very commonly, members of the Sathya Sai fold, and Sai Baba himself, demonize those who have raised questions. A great difficulty for the morale of the Sathya Sai Organization is that many devotees with deep misgivings, but who do not dare to speak up, continue to pay lip service. This one fact alone has caused many deep divisions within families of Sai Baba devotees.

Shamefully devotees traduce many around the world who, before they left it, have given decades of honorable service to the Sathya Sai Organization, and to their own wider communities. In the eyes of devotees, these fine individuals were regarded as angels when on-board but demons when they left the ship. So much for blind faith and and an Orwellian collective and selective memory which can quell discernment and conscience ……

Here are two articles featuring the type of conscience-led Sai Baba leaders who were shamefully treated at the highest levels of the Sathya Sai Organization:
