Deceiving ‘devotee’ makes bogus image of Sai in the Moon

Posted by robertpriddy on October 25, 2007

It is noteworthy how far devotees will go to try to deceive others that they have experienced Sai ‘miracles’Why they bother can be explained, for example, by the extra popularity and respect they hope to gain from other blind followers for being ‘blessed by Svami with a special darshan’ and for other selfish reasons. Well, it so happens that the moon on October 23 was not full but was still ‘waxing gibbous’, as can be seen from the following image taken from the astronomical website http://stardate.org/nightsky/moon/ This shows the moon two days before full moon. Full moon did not occur until Oct 26 04:52, according to NASA.

However, the falsifier who put together the deceptive image presented a completely circular moon. Why would any devotee make such an image of Sai Baba on the moon and circulate it unless it was to create the delusion – one sustained independently by numerous claimants at this location – that Sai Baba DID actually appear on the face of the moon? That this was a wholly transparent fraudulence, in fact a wilful, and outright lie, cannot be doubted (except by extreme Sai fanatics or perhaps those whose minds have flipped)! Of course, had this occurred (except perhaps in the over-heated imagination of some devotees), it would have been global news story No. 1. The Indian news media reports on the failure of the predicted ‘moon darshan’ and the disappointment of the huge and chaotic local crowds who had assembled for it.

Moon darshan – 22nd,23rd Oct.2007 …..THE APPEARANCE OF BHAGAWAN’S BUST IMAGE ON MOON LAST NIGHT’S SKY: SAI RAM EVERYBODY!“WHILE I AM HAPPY SHARE WITH YOU OF THE APPEARANCE OF BHAGWAN’S BUST IMAGE ON MOON LAST NIGHT’S SKY (VISAKHAPATNAM, INDIA), I’M SURPRISED THAT NONE HAS POSTED A MESSAGE IN THIS REGARD TILL THIS MORNING ON THIS GROUP.THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE VISITED THE PLANETARIUM IN PRASANTHI NILAYAM, MIGHT RECOLLECT THE SATELLITE IMAGE OF INDIA TAKEN BY THE AMERICAN SATELLITE SOMETIME IN 1970s (I DON’T REMEMBER THE EXACT DATE) CONTAINING BHAGAWAN, LAST NIGHT’S SPECTACLE WAS SIMILAR WITH THE BUST IMAGE OF BHAGAWAN CLEARLY VISIBLE ON THE MOON. “THANK YOU,SAIRAMmohansai
Note: the following text, cached on the web was sent to me by a contact:-Wed Oct 24, 2007 8:45 Sairam, Dear all, this is not a real image, but im sending what i could see and visualise, what we all saw yesterday looking at the moon. there was not need to imagine a shape or make a guess the visual on moon was as clear as the image im sending now. HIS hair, eyes, nose and even HIS smile was very clear. Sairam, enjoy! HIS blessings. yours sincerley, darpan

Comment: This makes very clear that Darpan Rane himself DID try to deceive everyone into believing (with the aid of a bogus image – even though he also wrote it is not a ‘real image’) that Sathya Sai Baba miraculously appeared on the face of the moon. He may well have believed it himself, but is not this a ‘lunatic’ assertion? Apart from three or four others who supported this ‘miracle claim’, why did not one single astronomer (there are hundreds of thousands of them) come out in support of this belief?

    I remember that time when we were told ‘He’ would appear on the moon. I went out and spent around 15 minutes watching the moon and there was nothing uncommon about it. But being a devotee at that time, I concluded that it was my own lack of spiritual insight that forbade me from seeing him there. I cajoled myself by remarking that the moon was ‘especially’ beautiful that night. haha

    Comment from Robert:
    Amusing. That was the standard prescription from Sai Baba, anything you perceive is wrong is a reflection of you (bad) self. What a clever ploy, what a mendacious and criminal deceiver he turned out to be!

  2. O.K. I never visit such websites as yahoo groups (cesspits) and can’t be bothered with saibabaofindia either, which is all gushing rubbish to me.

    The fact is, an e-mail was sent out presenting the image as a genuine sighting.
    That DP imagines he actually saw what his image represents means either he is deranged through faith (that is reading MUCH more into a vague dark fuzz seen on the full moon)or he was trying to deceive by claiming he actually saw such a clear face on the moon. But the entire world disagrees with him (excepting a handful of people who will believe, see and hear anything they fancy).
