Documented: Sathya Sai Baba’s Harsh Chauvinism Against Women

Posted by Barry Pittard on April 17, 2012

The extent to which devotees endured Sathya Sai Baba’s misogyny is truly appalling. It is yet another of a great many instances which show how, in cases of charismatic leaders, human beings sacrifice their intelligence, commonsense and humanity.  See my last post:  Sathya Sai Baba’s Ignoring of Women. And Especial Focus On Boys and Young Men.   Barry Pittard on April 12, 2012

Just A Few Examples of Sathya Sai Baba’s Chauvinism

“Women have their estimable role in household affairs, but they should be kept out of state politics (Sanathana Sarathi, May 1995, p. 118)

His extremely narrow-minded religious fundamentalism is on display, here:

“Rama told Bharata that he should not permit women to take part in affairs of state. Women have their estimable role in household affairs, but they should be kept out of state politics. Don’t employ women as ministers. The reason is: a nation’s honour is based upon its women. It is only when women maintain their respect and honour that the nation will be respected. It is not proper for women to cheapen themselves by roaming in public places.”  (Sanathana Sarathi, May 1995, p. 118)

He often and foolishly equated young romantic love with later, mature love in relationships. In doing so, he did constant dirt against the kind of marriage my own wonderful parents had, along with so many others in so many cultures.

For decades, in his interviews and discourses, thousands from around the world have heard such marriage-antagonistic pronouncements as the following:

“Marriage is 23 hours of problems, 1 hour happiness” (Sometimes, he would say:  5 minutes happiness)

“Marriage is a sickness; The real marriage is with God”

“One man is alone walks on two feet, when married he walks on 4, then children come and after a while he needs to crawl”

“First man has 2 legs, he gets married and becomes an animal with 4 legs. They get one child, a six-legged scorpion, then another, an 8-legged cockroach. One connection leads to another and you lose your freedom”
