Sathya Sai Baba Breaks Down and Sobs at 85th Birthday

Posted by Barry Pittard on December 11, 2010

Confirming many reports of Sathya Sai Baba breaking down and weeping in more recent times, there is now brilliantly clear and revealing video footage for all to see.

To see this video, CLICK HERE

It is not that crying is out of order, per se. It is, however, the case that Sai Baba has had many words to say about stoicism. Or, to be exact:  samatva, equal mindedness. Countless times his devotees have heard him utter, e.g.,:

“Let anyone say anything; remain calm”. 

Here but another two of countless references he has made to his (assumed) equanimity:

“Sai is unaffected by praise and blame”.  Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 14.

“I am not happy about such praises. I have no desire that people should extol Me. I am neither elated nor depressed by such acts. I am beyond praise or ridicule, respect or disrespect, anger or happiness. I have only one attribute throughout – My love. I love even those who hate Me. I love even those who indulge in bad propaganda against Me. I do not consider anyone as enemy”.  Sathya Sai Baba 83rd Birthday Celebrations Discourse 2008

Sathya Sai Baba’s many reported weeping episodes have taken – as from circa the year 2000 – a marked upsweep after the advent of worldwide exposure of widespread serial sexual abuse of boys and young men (See also HERE and HERE);  his implication in the massive local, state and central governments’ cover up of police killings in his bedroom at Puttaparthi (See HERE and HERE and HERE); vast misappropriation of billions in funds collected worldwide (See HERE and HERE and HERE); his vast opulence in a land of great poverty, squalor, ignorance and superstition; his failed predictions (See HERE and HERE); and much else that reveals him to be one of history’s great imposters, whatever may be the good deeds that he has sparked off in many of his devotees.

He has also said:

“When I am defamed, I never get incensed, for it is only the tree full of edible fruits that is attached by sticks and stones.” Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 4 p. 184.

But here is his so-called equanimity, when he loudly and repeatedly banged with his fist on his lectern (to loud and prolonged applause by the crowds) in his Christmas discourse of 2000, which had scarcely anything to say about Christ – see quote from Sanathana Sarathi, on right hand side:

 
 
 

Sathya Sai Baba Calls His Critics Demons

 

Robert Priddy has some instructive historical notes on reports of Sathya Sai Baba crying. He comments:

“That Sathya Sai Baba sits and cries so much illustrates the absurd dishonesty of his years of boastful claims to be unmoved by any pain or pleasure!  His tears are clearly not those of ecstatic joy as entire demeanour reeks of depression and decline. In the birthday evening video (excerpt 8 mins)  one can see how he is more like a wooden idol than a living Divinity. How come that this supposed self-proclaimed infallible and ever youthful Avatar is in such a state? There will as usual surely be no answers from his staff or followers… all they can do is to try to pretend that it is some kind of miracle of showing his humanity (well, it is not showing divinity)!”

See:  Sathya Sai Baba crying (video). Posted by robertpriddy on December 10, 2010

In recent years, there has been a marked increase of reports that depict  Sai Baba acting in many ways not previously typical of him. However, there is now 85th birthday celebrations video footage  of him breaking down and crying. Or, to be exact – as the viewer can, with the greatest clarity see – breaking into uncontrollable sobbing.

As in a great deal of footage, viewers can also see the Sai Baba’s mask-like face and other signs of a deterioration. These afford yet another instance, taken from myriad examples, of how Sai Baba’s predictions have so dramatically and demonstrably failed to materialize.  Many statements that are to be seen scattered through official Sathya Sai publications can today be viewed, with sharp and sometimes gross informativeness, in juxtaposition with the reality that is the physically and mentally ailing Sathya Sai Baba. His devotees are blind to the glaring anomalies. He has said, for example:

“Rama and Krishna were ever youthful. Have you ever seen a picture of Rama or Krishna with grey hair?….. Usually old people have wrinkles on their faces … I do not have any signs of old age. (loud applause). There is not a single wrinkle on My face”. Sanathana Sarathi, October, 2002.

“Many people wonder that I look so young even at the age of 73. The reason is that I have the three P’s in Me. One is Purity, the second is Patience and the third is Perseverance. It is because of these three that I shall remain like this for any number of years to come. (cheers)”  p. 302 Sanathana Sarathi, 11-1998 

We have BBC footage to thank for showing both the faking of a so-called miracle and also documentation of the sort of inane statements that, in recent years, have been reported. On stage in front of February 2004’s Mahasivaratri crowd, the BBC cameras (in footage that would later become part of ‘The Secret Swami’, which has been seen in over 120 countries around the world, see resources below) show Sai Baba looking increasingly sick. He produces the lingam, and the materialization trick demonstrated by Professor Narendra Nayak is easy for the viewer to spot, the lingam being concealed in Sai Baba’s handkerchief. In the ensuing documentary, the BBC journalist Tanya Datta comments:

“To the alarm of the crowd suddenly Sai Baba collapsed. His huge coterie of staff swung into action. There was panic. An organisation used to tight control seemed to have lost its grip. Sai Baba was hastily wheeled off stage.”

 Later, he is carried hobbling back, with officials claiming that he manifested two more lingams offstage. To the audience, a shaken Sai Baba makes a preposterous claim:

 “Out of the stomach emanated Shiva Lingas of the weight of three tonnes. That’s the reason why some strain on the face and the body” http://home.hetnet.nl/~ex-baba/engels/movies.html

See further examples of Sai Baba’s increasing decrepitude:

“I intend to undertake a world tour, shortly.”  

But the reality is very different from the perspective of his devotees, who relegate all contrary evidence to a nether region of what is left of their logical minds. As further witness: …

Wolf Messing and Sathya Sai Baba: Serguei Badaev and Brian Steel Articles On Conflicting Evidence

Posted by Barry Pittard on October 23, 2010

One of many instructive cases that challenge Sai Baba’s self-presentation are his references, across time, to an alleged meeting between himself and the 20th century Polish psychic Wolf Messing.

The more scrutiny that is given – other than by the eyes of blind faith – to many of Sathya Sai Baba’s pronouncements about history and science the more a rational reader is struck by the occurrence of error, contradiction and lack of clarity.

An editor at the Invigilator blogsite has noted: 

“The text previously posted about Wolf Messing by Alexandra Nagel on this blog (written in 2004) has been removed since researches by expert investigators – entirely independently of all Sathya Sai Baba connections – have proven almost his entire biography to be a concocted myth. This information only emerged after new hitherto unknown sources became available. showing that the world has been totally misled by the claims put forward by Wolf Messing and Mikhail Khvastunov. In his thorough article summarizing these matters and also the bogus claims by Sathya Sai Baba about Wolf Messing”. 

See Serguei Badaev detailed article:  ‘Wolf Messing, A Psychic Entertainer Whom Sathya Sai Baba Claims to Have Met’.

See also:  Sathya Sai Baba Critic Serguei Badaev: An Incisive Voice of Conscience From Russia

The rational reader will pay proper attention to the arguments of yet another careful commentator whose writings critically probe Sathya Sai Baba’s own accounts of himself. Brian Steel has also written instructively on the supposed Wolf Messing-Sathya Sai Baba nexus. Steel has extensively analysed Sathya Sai literature, on which he was an acknowledged expert well before he quit the Sathya Sai Baba fold. He has often focused on Sathya Sai Baba’s statements as they appear in officially-approved publications that issue from his own publication house. When he is not discoursing on ancient subjects relating to the Vedas, Puranas etc., a habit of Sathya Sai Baba, is to weave into his discourses accounts that often come across as re-workings of stories he has read or heard. The purpose of this seems to be, in no matter how many novel ways, to buttress up his claim to be the avatar of avatars, and add to his own mystique. Sometimes his retellings are in conflict.  In more recent times, there has been considerable ‘weeding’ by editors at Puttaparthi of embarrassing Sathya Baba statements.  See my article:  The Quiet Weeding Out Of Sathya Sai Baba’s Embarrassing Statements

In the article More Messing, Brian Steel writes:

“My attention has been drawn to the fact that SB recently decided to liven up a Discourse in honour of Krishna (31 August 2002) by retelling his Wolf Messing story in its third incarnation. The previous shorter versions are to be found in his Discourse of 22 November 1980 – Sathya Sai Speaks, XIV, Chapter 57, pp. 364-366; LIMF, p. 48; and in R. T. Kakade and A. Veerabadhra Rao’s Shirdi to Puttaparthi, pp. 159-160. My July 2002 commentary on the earlier versions can be seen at ‘Paranormal References: Wolf Messing and Kirlian (Revised)’ …

A recapitulation of the most obvious discrepancies which emerge from the above analysis inevitably casts the shadow of doubt over all three of these versions:

Messing’s biographical 1915 visits to Freud and Einstein are postponed by SB to 1937.

Messing met Gandhi in 1927, when Sathya was 1 year old.

SB’s own presence in far distant Kamalapuram was, as LIMF shows, between June 1940 and June 1941, not 1937 (when Sathya Narayana was only in his second year of Primary school). By 1941 the war in Europe was raging and Messing was presumably confined to the Soviet Union.

The Hitler references lack plausibility given Messing’s Jewishness and his prediction about the Fuhrer’s death.

The geographical discrepancy between the railway itineraries mentioned.

Parts of Version 3 also sound as though they were gleaned from the Ostrander-Shroeder book or a similar biographical source, like Lungin’s.

Therefore, whichever way one looks at the 3 Messing stories, and whatever truth there might be at the base of the various permutations, the conclusion that SB has invented or changed details and dates is surely unavoidable. But, once again, the questions linger: Why, time after time, do intelligent devotees unquestioningly indulge SB’s disregard for the truth? Why does he embroider his stories, and so often? And why does he continue to do so at this particular time when SB’s advisers are aware of the many serious questions (not “gossip and rumours”) being raised in different forums concerning his omniscience and credibility? Or doesn’t he listen to them?”

Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘Minister of Propaganda’ – Dr G. Venkataraman

Posted by Barry Pittard on February 28, 2007

More detailed information to that below is found in the article ‘The Sathya Sai Organization’s Deception and Propaganda Exposed’. This four-part piece was co-authored by Robert Priddy and Barry Pittard. It responds to points Dr G. Venkataraman has unconscienably raised – despite his knowledge of the excellent character of so many who have, as a matter of moral principal, left the Sai Baba fold. He has demeaned the excellent professionalism of the British Broadcasting Corporation, who were exceptionally exacting in the amount of hard evidence they sought from globally networked Sathya Sai Baba devotees, some of whom had been outstanding leaders for decades (See too: Sathya Sai Baba’s Chief Broadcaster Dr G. Venkataraman: Select Critical Articles by Barry Pittard and Dr G. Venkataraman, Sathya Sai Baba’s Nuclear Boon Companion. 

G. Venkataraman, Sai Baba, K. Chakravarthi

Dr G. Venkataraman, formerly an intimate member of India’s nuclear bomb community, was Vice-Chancellor of Sai Baba’s university at Puttaparthi. He is now second-in-charge of the international Sathya Sai Organization, and head of Sai Global Harmony. The latter entity broadcasts, in affiliation with WorldSpace International Satellite Radio Service, 24/7 to many countries. With a behind-the-scenes corporate-style, assisted by portions of the billions of funds that pour from many countries into the Sathya Sai Central Trust, the declared aim is to penetrate to every corner of the globe. A vital question will be whether politicians in democratic countries will be capable of distinguishing between the issue of freedom of religion and the issue of cults that decidedly do not, whatever may be their rhetoric, respect democracy.

Dr Venkataraman is tantamount to being Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘minister of propaganda’. Practically all heads of the Sathya Sai Organization are forbidden to comment on critical matters, but G. Venkataraman is an exception. The few spokesmen (and the extreme male domination is palpable) say very little, as one would expect of a virtually Soviet-style, cultic organization. In some ways – otherwise the public reputability worldwide of the Sathya Sai Organisation would soon be in tatters. But a fact that no Sai devotee can deny is that Sathya Sai Baba and deputy chairman Venkararaman have both wax lyrical about how the former dictator of Uganda Idi Amin wept with tears of devotion over Sai Baba. I invited those of my readers who are very concerned about the cultic adherence of relatives and friends to Sathya Sai Baba to send to, or print off for, them the following irrefutable documentation: 

Idi Amin Video Clip. Amin Claimed Direct Line To God and Sathya Sai Baba and Dr G.Venkataraman: Will They Disavow Their Idi Amin Fondness? and Sathya Sai Baba, dictator Idi Amin and G. Venkataraman and Sathya Sai Baba’s Deputy Head, Dr G. Venkataraman, Speaks of “Mr Idi Amin” and The Last King of Scotland – GOD’S ORDERS and Sai Baba

Until recently, even Venkataraman was subdued. However, a civil lawsuit against the directors of the Sathya Sai Society of America law went badly wrong for the litigant, Alaya Rahm of southern California,the son of Al Rahm who was for many years one of the highest profile Sathya Sai Organization leaders in the world. The young man, Alaya, was advised by his attorney, William Brelsford, to self-dismiss his case. This resulted in terms so absurdly unfavourable to Rahm that some of (including top lawyers from the US, UK, and Australia) have been aghast. One wonders whether his pro bono lawyer William Brelsford can even look himself in the mirror of a morning. His discovery process was faulty, and the high-flying lawyers for Dr Michael Golstein, head of the world Sathya Sai Organization ran rings round the tactically slow-moving Brelsford.

Had the Rahm family not suffered enough – having already courageously and tirelessly lent themselves to former devotee efforts with Denmark’s national broadcaster DR, BBC television, FBI and State Department, UNESCO, etc., – I, for one, favoured initiating a complaints process about William Brelsford to the California Bar Society, but could then, after searching phone conversation with the father, Al Rahm, sense how fragile hurt the Rahm family were feeling, and so backed off. From first hand, I knew well that the Rahm family, out of deep respect for my close and widely respected, much-loved associate (the late) Glen Meloy. It was not as if the Rahm had not already done, and suffered. (For Glen Meloy, see my obiturary: Glen Meloy (“Standing up for truth and goodness”) – In Memoriam

Venkataraman seemed rapturous. Alaya Rahm is one of many throughout the world who accuse Sathya Sai Baba of sexually molesting them while in their teens, not to mention young men just out of their teens. One of the saddening types of report that come to us is of men advanced in age, who have for many years remained quiet about Sathya Sai Baba’s sexual abuse of them when the men were very young, and visited Sai Baba decades ago. Al Rahm has told us how an important factor in the Al Rahm being able to accept his son’s accounts of abuse was that Sathya Sai Baba had sexually abused Al many years before, and Al, like so many others, had seen the abuse not as abuse but as a form of mystic, divine blessing by his all-knowing, all-seeing guru. For another example of belated debriefing see the case of Mark Roche. Here is the BBC’s ‘The Secret Swami’ segment where Tanya Datta interviews Mark Roche, in his 60’s and now a psychotherapist in the USA:

10.24.10 Aston Santa Monica, California

10.24.16 Music

10.24.28 Tanya Datta: Mark Roche devoted twenty-five years of his life to Sai Baba. He first heard of him in nineteen sixty-nine and soon joined the local centre in California. The guru’s message was the big attraction.

10.24.40 Music

10.24.44 Aston MARK ROCHE: The teachings themselves were very universal and adopted the attitude of embracing all other religions so that it wasn’t a matter of this religion opposed to that, that you had to leave whatever you were in to be associated with Sai Baba, it was something that just be a better Christian or a better Jew or a better whatever it is rather than necessarily having to leave it mixed with the fact that the person who is the head of that is claiming to be God himself.

10.25.12 Music

10.25.15 Tanya Datta: It’s the special moment when God calls. And Mark couldn’t believe his luck when he was summoned for a private interview. But he emerged shocked and confused. Just like the Rahms, Sai Baba had oiled his genitals. Two years later Mark was called for an audience again.

10.25.37 Mark Roche: He kept saying stuff like that I’m giving you a great chance, millions want to touch the feet, you know, I’m giving you whole body, this is great chance, this is great chance. Then he went over to a different of the building and pulled up his dhoti, which is Indian garment kind of thing and exposed himself and sort of indicated that I was supposed to put his penis in my mouth, which, feeling intimidated and confused and all that, I did. And although it didn’t seem right to me but it just seemed like what I was supposed to do.

10.26.12 Music

10.26.15 Tanya Datta: Why would God want to put his penis in your mouth?

10.26.20 Mark Roche: Got me.

10.26.21 Music

10.26.24 Tanya Datta: One of the things that a lot of the abuse victims we’ve talked to have said, is that Sai Baba does these genital oilings because it’s part of Hinduism. Have you ever heard anything like that?

10.26.35 Aston KHUSHWANT SINGH Writer: I, I, I, for one, it’s nothing to do with, there’s no Indian tradition to support the fact that, you know, worship of the Lingam includes also doing the blow job, if that is what you are referring to. I don’t think there’s any basis for that whatsoever.

In the view of our lawyers looking at the case, his legal representation was in some respects seriously deficient. Did Venkataraman think it a matter full of merriment for a young man to tangle with attorneys hired by those backed by great wealth? There is not a moment in his long piece (what piece of his is not long, and long-winded?) where Venkataraman shows the slightest compassion. For him a fallen dissenter is a figure for derision and crowing over, and the response of many Sai Baba supporters was the same. How very spiritual of them all! It was simply too much for Venkataraman to miss the opportunity to triumph in front of a wide public – something he could not have done without Sathya Sai Baba’s explicit permission. See:
