Sathya Sai Baba Sect: A Crisis of Trust

Posted by Barry Pittard on July 5, 2009

One of the distinctive phenomena that independently confirm voices critical of Sathya Sai Baba and his cult is that his movement is eroding from within.

A glance at each of these older articles in conjunction with the other highlights two important facts:

Quote from: Sathya Sai Baba World Cult At Odds With Itself

“Some of his followers have made progress in thinking their way out of this particular variety of ‘the guru trap’. They do not have to ask whether those who have spoken out (often after many decades as deeply dedicated service workers in his movement) are a tiny handful of disgruntled or money-oriented individuals or “demons” and “Judases” that Sathya Sai Baba and certain of his devotees have branded us as being. Rather, in waking up to the seriousness of the revelations, they discover rude awakenings enough in their own saddened localities”.

Quote from: ‘Secret Swami’ Cult Recruits At Prime Public Venues

“This zeal to recruit (to use the proper word) tends to take place in exceptionally prestigious venues. What does the global Sathya Sai Baba cult  need for its survival – given over a decade of unrelenting exposure? It needs to provide for the stupendously expensive upkeep and maintenance of its costly and sumptuous buildings and various programs that glorify Sathya Sai Baba as God of Gods. See (including photos of the imperial lavishness with which Sathya Sai Baba surrounds himself): Sai Baba, Kubla Khan, Citizen Kane, Bill Gates et alia and India’s ‘Emperor’ Sai Baba. By His Lavish Spending Ye Shall Know Him

But the wherewithal is not likely to proceed from his ever-circling ‘miraculous’ hand. Survival decrees that it is the left and cunning hand that needs to be in operation, and fast”.
