Pacemaker ‘Avatar’ Says ‘I am not this body’. Worried Devotees Pray For His Body
Posted by Barry Pittard on April 3, 2011
As of Monday 28 March 2011, we have a pacemaker avatar. The Lord of Lords, the Avatar of Avatars. The heart of the universe. The now hump-backed, immobile faced, golf-cart-transported God on earth. A golf-cart-carted-around God who imagines himself more famous than Tiger Woods. He says that all the world loves him. But of course most people in the world at large have never heard of him. He has said he will transform India then the world before he leaves it in when about 96 years old.
But he can’t even get a wriggle on so as to perform these feats. He has had successive hip operations. He breaks down with heaving sobs, now recorded for posterity (if it is interested) – see video footage cited below. Practically all that is left of any sign of rulership is the fantastical gold chair and float that bear him around to be worshipped by devotees too blinded to see the sheer scope of all his failed prophecies and promises.
Among many statements that he is wondrously healthy, here are but two. They capture the essence of much of what he has kept insisting down many years:
“I do not suffer from any kind of disease because there is no trace of greed in Me. That is why I am always healthy…” (Sanathana Sarathi September 2001, page 257f) 186)
Purity, patience and perseverance. With these three you are bound to acquire good health and bliss. You may believe it or not. But the truth is that these three are responsible for my health (Arogya) and bliss (Ananda)” (Sanathana Sarathi July 1995, p. 173.
The Sheer Attachment of Sai Devotees to the Form of Sai Baba
A constantly harped upon evangel of Sathya Sai Baba is that: “We are not this body”.
The maxim forever comes up at Sathya Sai study circles around the world. Devotees are treated to barely differentiated statements of his on this theme, reiterated practically ad infinitum among his public discourses over many years. The official Sathya Sai Central Trust publishes these, and the international Sathya Sai Organization sees that study circles do the instructional job Sai Baba has commanded. They dare not do otherwise. They are harshly evicted from the organization if they should seriously question. Like those individuals who were greatly honoured by so many devotees who knew them well, such as Lucas Ralli, when he was Central Coordinator for UK and Ireland, Serguei Badaev, ex-President of the Sathya Sai Organization’s Moscow centre, ex-deputy National Coordinator, and National Sathya Sai Education in Human Values (SSEHV) Coordinator for Russia, and Stephen Carthew, Spirtual Convenor, South Australia. See:
To see just how profoundly his devotees are unable to practise this dictum of non attachment to the body, one can, whenever his latest bout of sickness is announced, look at any random devotee thread on the internet. The glaring fact is that his devotees are extremely attached to the form of Sathya Sai Baba.
The moment Sathya Sai Baba’s ill-health is reported there is great concern – the chatrooms, tweets and facebooks, blogsites, websites, mobile and other phones, burst into super activity – abounding with calls to pray for him to get better. That is to say, via the Internet which Sathya Sai Baba has so mightily inveighed against. When the movement of exposure of him and his cult was gathering force both on and off the internet, he said:
“Swami has nothing to do with internet. Not only now, even in future also You should not indulge in such wrong activities. This disease’ has its roots in cities and is spreading like wild-fire into villages polluting the village environment. Villages are the epitome of peace and love. Do not spoil the village atmosphere by imitating the city culture”. Discourse, 15 October 1999, Prashanti Nilayam
But get better? The guru who has told them that he will be in the body and, effectively, ruling the world until circa 2022?
Get better? The one who has told them that he will forever look the same after his 60th birthday?
Get better? The one who told them that he would first put India in order, then travel to various parts of the world (some of which he has named), after which he would, effectively rule the whole world before he dies? (Not that he would use the word ‘dies’ in this connection)
The concern over Sathya Sai Baba’s body is seen in both his leaders and in his rank-and-file followers. Their attachment to it is chronic, and in direct contradiction to his constantly preached virtue of non-attachment to the form.
If a drop of hot water falls among ants, they will all scurry. All is agitation, and nothing is of the calmness and non-attachment on which he and his devotees so harp.
When it is announced that their master is sick, they show not a drop of such qualities.
