The One Per Centers

Posted by Barry Pittard on February 10, 2012

In India – the country which Sathya Sai Baba utterly failed to transform, as he had so long promised to do – and in many other countries, there is a widespread mushrooming of public protest against corruption. For example, the ‘Occupy’ movement. See my article:

Occupy Movement Exemplifies Sathya Sai Baba’s Failure As Social Reformer

In some countries, many people die when they challenge their ruling regimes. If those of us in so-called democratic countries continue to be deceived by better disguised deceptions of our own leaders and systems, we will lose those freedoms which came only after grave sacrifice.

The Wikileaks phenomenon exposed to the world many (although an iceberg tip relative to the reality) shameful secrets that governments routinely suppress through massive lying and cover up. That is to say, a world often profoundly naïve and cosseted in a way that many power brokers, diplomats and journalists, for example, are not. For a complex array of reasons, they are frequently required to shut up. The systems silence the whistleblowers. Any system in any country does this, and the methods, whether gross or subtle, according to system and regime, are many and frightening.

Sathya Sai Baba drew to himself many very high level figures in finance, politics, the armed services, the judiciary, the police and so on, But he signally failed – to any genuine and meaningful extent – to challenge or to change the visible and the invisible holders of power in his own or any other country, to a point where they have come out against their former practices. His many promises and prophecies, like those of countless promise merchants and prognosticators down millennia, have proved nonsensical and worthless. See:

Sathya Sai Baba Foretold He Would ‘Die’ Circa 2022. Further Archival Evidence

Posted by Barry Pittard on June 14, 2011

Here is further evidence for the best known of the late Sathya Sai Baba’s predictions for the year of his death – circa 2022.  See my blog:  Official Sai Baba Documents Show His Death Date Prophecies Failed.  Posted by Barry Pittard on June 12, 2011.

Of course, after several years of sickness and patently looking far below the roseate physical health he long proclaimed that he would enjoy for the rest of his life –  he died 24 April 2011 – very much sooner than 2022.

See at this blogsite:

Sathya Sai Baba Tells Untruths About His Health

Sathya Sai Baba Is Fast-ailing

Robert Priddy, former head of the Sathya Sai Organization, Norway, cites the writing of the Norwegian journalist Thorbjørn Færøvik, who reported a largely attended public speech given in Sai Baba’s presence. The speaker was Dr A. Murthi, a prominent Sai Baba devotee, and a member of the organizing committee for the Sathya Sai World Conference at Puttaparthi in 1998:  ‘The Future of Humanity’.

Thorbjørn Færøvik interviewed Dr Murthi:

Murthi:  He’s going to die on his 95-year anniversary.

Færøvik:  How can Sai Baba know?

Murthi:  Because he is the son of God. Son of God knows everything.

Færøvik:  It will say that Sai Baba has a good 20 years left to live?

Murthi:  Exactly. And during these 20 years we must solve a series of problems.

Færøvik:  What?

Murthi:  We need to create complete peace and harmony

(The above is Robert Priddy’s Translation from the Norwegian text: “
Han kommer til å dø på sin 95-årsdag, sier dr. A. Murthi, som sitter i arrangementskomiteen for verdenskonferansen og er en svoren tilhenger av Sai Baba. – Hvordan kan Sai Baba vite det? – Fordi han er Guds sønn. Guds sønn vet alt. – Det vil si at Sai Baba har vel 20 år igjen å leve? – Nettopp. Og i løpet av disse 20 årene må vi løse en rekke problemer. – Hvilke? – Vi må skape fullstendig fred og harmoni på Jorden. Vi må lære menneskene dannet tale og dannet atferd. ”  – from ‘India, stevnemøte med skjebnen’ by Thorbjørn Færøvik. J.W. Cappelans Forlag. 1999)

Official Sai Baba Documents Show His Death Date Prophecies Failed

Posted by Barry Pittard on June 12, 2011

Documentary proof of Sai Baba foretelling his death at 96 years

As inaccurate in blind faith mathematics as they are careless with so many other types of fact, a number of Sathya Sai Baba devotees have seriously tripped over themselves about his various death date prophecies.

Following his death on 24 April 2011, they try, with Procrustean contortions, to convert his (supposedly) prophetic words into factual statements.

Many of them did not realise that he had made several conflicting prophecies concerning his death date (not that they use the word ‘death’.

Sathya Sai Baba in his glass coffin. His 40-day's later resurrection prophecy has failed

Exhaustive efforts of former devotee researchers such as Robert Priddy and Brian Steel and others have uncovered many instances of palpable absurdities which it is now too late for the Sai editorial weeders to conceal. 

These editorial puppets of Sai propaganda started all too late with their, so to speak, Weeders Digest – in which glaringly they have culled many embarrassing Sai Baba statements.  Especially, the Australian scholar Brian Steel was all too fast off the mark for any of them.

Thankfully, not all former devotees destroyed their large stack of back numbers of Sanathana Sarathi and other publications, such as the lengthy Sathya Sai Speaks series, of the Sri Sathya Sai Books and Publications Trust, Puttapathi.

What these deeply compromised Sathya Sai devotees unwittingly expose is the way in which their cultic adulation of Sai Baba makes them so foolhardy. This is but one of countless examples of devotee blindness, and serious lapse into untruth – the very opposite of what they claim to stand for.

Typically, such devotees embrace his utter deceits, an example being written devotee documentation that Sai Baba told a group of his students at his retreat at Kodaikanal that he would resurrect after 40 days. I have referred to this report in the Times of India at: 

Sathya Sai Baba Claimed He Will Resurrect After 40 Days

Posted by Barry Pittard on June 4, 2011

My readers will not of course need to hunt up a calendar to see that these forty days have well elapsed. There is not even the hint of a resurrection. Unless the ‘Secret Swami’ is keeping his resurrection secret.

TNN, Apr 24, 2011, 03.10am IST

PUTTAPARTHI: Did Sathya Sai Baba have premonition 10 years ago that he would fall seriously ill? Yes, claim his followers. According to them, Sai Baba had predicted in 2000 that he would be indisposed for 40 days but would come back strong to give darshan to his devotees.

This was revealed in a book ‘Tapovanam — Bhagawan Sri Sathya Saibaba Satcharitra Nityaparaya-nam’   in which the author Jandhyala Venkateswara Sastry has written an essay on Baba’s ill-health. Sai Baba had told his students at his Sai Shruti ashram in Kodaikanal in 2000: ”Though most of my disciples fall at my feet, they don’t know my real value. A time would come when I would vanish and take a walk across the skies. During that phase, my body would face serious health problems and devotees would be desperately praying for my recovery.”

Sathya Sai Baba Claimed He Will Resurrect After 40 Days

Posted by Barry Pittard on June 4, 2011

Amid the dust and decay of his many unfulfilled prophecies, Sathya Sai Baba died 25 April 2011. Yet he foretold that the most of the world would come kneel at his feet.

But of course, he will remain dead. And, except for small parts of it, the world has never been aware of him. That is to say, despite all his untruthful, propagandistic speeches ( and those of his carefully selected keynote speakers) given from the Puttaparthi stage saying that the whole world is becoming aware of his glory. Most of the world press did not cover his death, and those that did gave it no such column inches as the media in India.

Rather, the world is only too likely to adhere to its own multiplicity of belief systems, some of which profoundly disallow any such evangel as that of Sathya Sai Baba.

Contrary to the beliefs rife among his devotees, both (supposedly) educated and the non-educated, he will resurrect.

Some sections of the Indian press – hitherto loathe to publish inimically on Sathya Sai Baba – now report various claims, each report serving to show how deeply compromised in their blind belief his devotees are, including the current President, Prime Minister, and many central, state and local government officials, across party political lines, not to mention a great many others. The Times of India informs:

Baba said he would return stronger, claims book

TNN, Apr 24, 2011, 03.10am IST

PUTTAPARTHI: Did Sathya Sai Baba have premonition 10 years ago that he would fall seriously ill? Yes, claim his followers. According to them, Sai Baba had predicted in 2000 that he would be indisposed for 40 days but would come back strong to give darshan to his devotees.

This was revealed in a book ‘Tapovanam — Bhagawan Sri Sathya Saibaba Satcharitra Nityaparaya-nam’   in which the author Jandhyala Venkateswara Sastry has written an essay on Baba’s ill-health. Sai Baba had told his students at his Sai Shruti ashram in Kodaikanal in 2000: ”Though most of my disciples fall at my feet, they don’t know my real value. A time would come when I would vanish and take a walk across the skies. During that phase, my body would face serious health problems and devotees would be desperately praying for my recovery.”

A great many Sathya Sai Baba devotees are familiar with his statements that he would forsake aircraft and “move across the sky”.  I doubt whether I shall bother to stick my head out the window to see any such event.  However, if he does appear, his devotees will crow louder than the fowl yard at dawn, and, eyes agleam, let the rest of us know.

At the moment, there does not even appear the chance of a dazzling darshan in the sky of a flying gilded coffin.

Although some devotees are exciting other devotees with accounts of wondrous visions. Interesting – because Sai Baba has on various occasions told devotees to disregard such visions. Contradictorily, he has also told devotees that so long as dreams of him are clear, then they indeed come from him.

His predicted death date in the following quote clashes with at least two other dates for his death (although neither he nor his devotees have used such a bland term as ‘death’). The very commonly referred to death-date is 96, but the one on the left hand side (1963) below indicates an age of 93 years. The text on the right hand (of 2003) makes clear the date that many Sai devotees commonly referred to.

For the madcap attempts to rationalise these dates, and other palpable absurdities, see:

 ‘World Hindu’ by 2030. VHP’s Singhal Reports Sathya Sai Baba Told Him

An alert media only has to do a bit of research among decades of official Sathya Sai literature to see that stories such as the one the Times of India now prints have been around for years. It redounds to the Indian media’s great discredit that it has, almost all of it, decade after decade, failed to make even the most perfunctory attempt to hold Sathya Sai Baba and the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust to any sort of account. That a number of leading foreign print and television media have investigated shames not only the Indian media but India herself, for being so corrupt. See:

Suicide, sex and the guru – The Times of London. The reputation of Sai Baba, a holy man to the rich and famous, has been tarnished by mysterious deaths and allegations of sexual abuse

Fortunately for media, government and institutional researchers, academics such as Robert Priddy and Brian Steel refrained from doing what many other former devotees have done, who destroyed their Sai Baba publications and other acquisitions. Priddy and Steel have subjected various key texts to rational and compelling comparison and analysis. Their vast amount of work will save scholars and other keen investigators huge amounts of time in getting to the relevant and revealing works and sections of works.

Rather than the much vaunted “Glory of Puttaparthi” and endless other such epithets, what we see in the following is the Folly of Puttaparthi:

This official publication verifies Sai Baba's death date prediction of 96 years

Sathya Sai Baba’s Ignorance of Basic Scientific Fact, and Devotee Silence on This Fact

Posted by Barry Pittard on December 3, 2009

Dr Kanwaljeet ‘Sunny’ Anand of Arkansas, USA, was a George W. Bush Administration medical advisor. One might think that a physician of distinction would be on-guard about crowd estimates. Or, again, in treating highly questionable interpretations of sections of various scriptures as though they are established fact.

Many, however, are the cases where otherwise intelligent individuals, blinded by their fervent belief systems, abandon reason and commonsense. In a speech at Sathya Sai Baba’s 80th birthday celebrations in Puttaparthi – a talk widely exploited as propaganda by the Puttaparthi machine, for example by the Sathya Sai Books and Publications Trust – Dr Anand (who is assuredly not an expert on “all the major religious texts of the world”) said:

“The Advent of this Divine Form is referenced in the Book of Revelations of the Bible, in the Holy Koran, in the Vedas and Jaimini Mahabharatha, in the Guru Granth Sahib, and in all of the major religious texts of the world. Currently, Sri Sathya Sai Baba is worshipped by more than 100 million people from more than 200 countries in the world, but most of the world remains oblivious of His Presence”

This speech appeared at the Sathya Sai official site http://www.srisathyasaipublications.org/anand.htm but has gone from this link. A longer quote from it (than here) appears at the Brian Steel, along with his detailed commentary, at page cited below.

It is to no point (other than to reveal that they ceaselessly abandon their master’s teaching about right speech and action) that Sathya Sai activists resort to vituperative and personal attacks on those former devotees and other critics who expose the absurdities. It is a sure sign that they defend the indefensible – for example his claim that the life enters the foetus at four months and nine days – YET, contradictorily, that it enters at 210 days. Dr ‘Sunny’ Anand is a top expert in neonatology, and cannot possibly run his medical practice or teach his university student along the lines of the preposterous statements reported in Sathya Sai Baba official magazine, Sanathana Sarathi.

 

NOTE:

Quoting at some length Dr Anand’s remarks made at Sathya Sai Baba’s 80th birthday celebrations, the former Sathya Sai Baba follower Brian Steel – A New Celebrity Endorsement of SSB’s Alleged Divinity?  (January 2006) wrote that he had written to Anand:

“I recently managed to establish initial contact in order to ascertain whether he did in fact make and authorise the extraordinary statement …. At first Dr Anand stated he was happy to clarify the as yet unidentified statement, but when I quoted it to him, he declined to answer by email, inviting me, instead, to his home for a friendly chat. With equal bonhomie, he added that any further emails from me would be automatically routed to the Junk box of his professional email address. Since he did not see any reason to offer me his private email address, I instantly concluded it would be a waste of my time and money to fly 10,000 miles for the promised chat.

Although my initial question has still not been categorically answered, all I can – and must – do for the moment is to publish the alleged comments, because they are a part of a very powerful promotional public statement by the SSO (or, to be more exact, the SSSBPT, which is the publishing wing of the Organisation – just one of the network of official websites which have sprung up since 1999 to promote the guru who originally became famous for stating, rather disingenuously, that he needed no advertising)”.

“What about the miracles”? Response To One Drawn By Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by Barry Pittard on September 6, 2009

Sometimes, a clearly decent and civil email comes from those not in agreement with one’s stance. Offensive mails seem to be the lot of those who, no matter how civilly, speak out asking for proper investigation into the worldwide allegations against Sathya Sai Baba.  One is happy to respond to polite queries, and to save one’s precious energy by not responding to those who are rude. Interesting, by the way, is how the genuine-sounding emails typically – unlike quite a few of those which strike one as having an agenda to draw one into reaction – contain a genuine email ID.

Recently, a writer, who had witnessed inexplicable phenomena occurring at a Sai devotee venue, asked me:  what about the (Sathya Sai Baba-related) miracles that are happening around the world? I responded in terms close to the following. I shall now include some relevant links:

The question is fair. It is one that many who have left Sathya Sai Baba have pondered over. I have not seen any satisfactory explanation. Typically, there is a quality of manifestation that cannot be explained. In my view, these phenomena are far removed from phenomena of the Ouija Board type, what to mention many another variety studied by parapsychologists.

I think that neither devotee nor non-devotee explanations can do justice to phenomena about which, in the scientific, rational sense, we can say very little. There is that arresting statement in the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein’s ‘Tractatus’: “Whereof we cannot speak, thereof we must be silent”.

Yes, the cry by some that there is trickery in many homes and other places where these phenomena occur is mistaken. There are too many householders etc., and the many who know them, of decades, of known integrity for this to be correct. I have had, over the years, my own experiences in such homes (in three of which, in markedly different places, I dwelt for some time).  However, from the point of view of those who have either suffered directly from or else carefully investigated Sathya Sai Baba’s abuses, there are two markedly different situations:  one of them delightful – the manifestations, experienced by a number of us; but the other terrible indeed. There is the joyful. There is the terrible.

The happy faces of those as they experience such phenomena is very different to the pain in the whole demeanor of those individuals and families who have suffered at the hands of Sathya Sai Baba and, in some cases, of those close to him, including in his educational wing. Those who have suffered – in regard to sexual abuse of boys and young men AND in other ways – feel very differently to those who undergo the delights of feeling their faith affirmed by the presence of honey and ash coming out of the pictures, and other sorts of phenomena. In any event, when it comes to Sathya Sai Baba’s own apparent physical performance of miracles, the truthful enquirer may have to watch video footage from various sources, including the BBC, without side-stepping. See my article:

Right Hand. Sleight Hand. Watch Sai Baba Cheat With Sacred Ash (Film clip)

The fact is that individuals and families from many parts of the world have been shattered. Sathya Sai Baba and his ashram authorities, further assisted by successive Indian governments, have initiated extreme cover up:

Senior Indian Policeman (Rtd) Speaks Out About Sathya Sai Baba Murders Cover Up

New Zealand Lawyer Exposes Official Cover Up of Killings In Sathya Sai Baba Bedroom

Indulal Shah and Indian Government Cover Up

V.P.B. Nair, B.Premanand, Robert Priddy: Sai Baba Bedroom Killings

Facts about murders, huge ashram financial ashram scams, as well as the widespread, serial sexual abuse of boys and young men have been profoundly suppressed. To these more obviously shocking facts, one must also consider the many contradictions and anomalies that have been uncovered by close examination of the Sathya Sai literary canon. One thinks especially of the work of Brian Steel and Robert Priddy.  See, e.g.,:

Recent Research on the Claims of Sathya Sai Baba (B.D. Steel website)

Sathya Sai Baba Deceptions Exposed (R.C. Priddy blogsite)

Sathya Sai Baba In Word And Action (R.C. Priddy’s extensive website)

Any truthful, consecutive thinking needs to consider the importance of this type of critical work. Those who continue to speak out are motivated by very old-time personal, ethical habits of speaking the truth irrespective of the attacks that come. Many who have left his side are very far from the manner in which he and various devotees would depict us. It is simply not true that we are liars, disgruntled, dissenting for the sake of money, and so on. He and his core leaders know it too well.

We have come to see the twistings and procrustean stretchings of what we have stated, by certain pro SSB activists. What is more, certain key officials know very well the terrible facts. There is also the appalling lapse of memory by those we long knew as co-workers and loving friends. It is good that my correspondent is “still continuing reading”. This is exactly what, typically, the devotees would not do, and are told not to do by Sathya Sai Baba himself in regard to our material on the Internet and elsewhere. He says to question, and yet heads a very autocratic worldwide organization. He says it is THE divine institution on earth, through which the whole world will be saved from its greatest perils ever to confront it, and this mostly within his own lifetime. Yet so many of his promises and predictions have failed, as can be seen by a great deal of proper documentation from official Sathya Sai publications of discourses (See Further Reading, below).

I may add that there have been those such as Buddha, Ramakrishna and many other spiritual teachers who have been very specific about the obstacle to the spiritual path that is posed by the mind’s attention to miracles.

‘World Avatar’ Sathya Sai Baba’s Troubled Trail

Posted by Barry Pittard on August 31, 2008

In any clear reading of the officially published works of Sathya Sai Baba, there are zig-zagging trails of anomaly.

The Troubled Trail

One sees glaring contradictions, unfulfilled prophecies and broken promises. The multi-colored and pretty ‘balloons’ that he has for so many decades floated – supposedly for the delight of all humanity – keep on popping, their limp remnants scattered far and wide.

The eyes of faith are blind to the absurdities – or, if the oddities are pointed out to his believers, they will justify them in one way or another – for example, by citing his oft-stated saying “Love Me for My mystery”. The procrustean bed works by both length and width.

For example, he has said, way back when the Beatles were but pups:

I must tell you that you are luckier than men of previous generations. The accumulated merit of many previous births must have granted you this luck. You have got Me and it is your duty now to develop this relationship that you have achieved by sheer good fortune. In four or five years’ time, you will see Yogis [those who are united with God] and Maharishis [great seers] and Munis [silent sages] crowding here and you may not have such chances of asking Me questions and getting the answers, of approaching Me and directly speaking to Me. (Sathya Sai Speaks – I, 174-5; Sept. 27, 1960)

Long Time Not Adventing

It is now not “four of five years time” but popping up on five decades later.

The context of his September 1960 prophecy makes it clear that the general public attending Puttaparthi gatherings will be privy to these wondrous manifestations. But of the panoply of saints and sages? One’s eyes strain in vain. Of politicians across the broad spectrum – yes, those aplenty. The topmost brass in the armed services – yes, their medals add to the dazzle of Puttaparthi. Of top cops – they are all over the place. Of the foremost judiciary, the diplomats, the industrialists, and so on – no end of them.
