Sathya Sai Baba’s [Deemed] University

Posted by robertpriddy on November 29, 2007

The authoritative website www.topuniversities.com ranks the top 400 universities in the world. Of these, there are three in India (Delhi ranked no. 254, Indian Institute of technology Bombay ranked 269 and Indian Institute of technology Delhi ranked 307. None of these universities, however rank at all as to specific subjects, nor as to peer review or citations, employer review, international staff or students, staff/student ratio. So there is unfortunately still a long way to go even for India’s best educational institutions.

Notable is the fact that The Sathya Sai Baba (Deemed) University is not on any list at all, though Sai Baba and some Indian educators boast that it is something unique. It was for decades not recognised as a full university even in India, though it is now allowed to use that title – probably because of Sai Baba’s political influence. There is no evidence that any serious academic or other education body has carried out any evaluation of th standards of this ‘university’, so the change of name (dropping the ‘deemed’) is suspicious and smacks of simple political manipulation. That it is not unique in educational standards for vertain, but doubtless it is unique in the amount of moralism students have to hear on a daily basis throughout their studies.

New Avatar, Sai Baba’s counterpart – on the block

Posted by robertpriddy on November 28, 2007

The same Shiva/Shakti Avatar is before us now – Shiva being Sri Sri Sri Sathya Sai Baba and Shakti being Bhagavati Srimad Sai (see http://www.premahealing.com/1.html) . Now this Sai Rajarajeshwari, the Parvathi, is granting you the audience today which is to be recorded in Golden Letters as a Red-Letter Day in your life-times. Devi Parvathi is leaving Her Foot Prints on the pages of time.

Bhagvate Srimad Sai Alleged ‘triple’ avatar
Left: the dancing lady & Shakthi claimant – Right the supposed triple avatar of Sai Baba

Why say more than that this is the sheer absurdity of yet another charlatan trying to cash in on Sathya Sai Baba taken to an extreme?

The clash of great Avatars seems unavoidable. Sathya Sai Baba has firmly laid claim to being both Shiva and Shakthi in union in one body. (He has said that his former alleged incarnation as Shirdi Sai Baba was an incarnation of Shiva, that his next claimed incarnation as Prema Sai Baba will be an incarnation of Shakthi).

Devotees know of the famous Shiva-Shakthi incident of 1963 where Sai Baba apparently cured the paralysis in the right hand side of his body with water sprinkled by his left hand (quite a clever show, one suspects).

Should there be any doubt that Sathya Sai Baba claims to be the incarnation of both Shiva and Shakthi, here is a scan of a paragraph from Sathya Sai Speaks, Volume 3 (Discourse 18 Febuary 1983):-

Sai Baba 82nd birthday – cakes and security

Posted by robertpriddy on November 25, 2007

Sathya Sai Baba in 2006

Newindpress have reported on the 82nd birthday, which has been played down greatly this year. “The fete was a low-key affair unlike which was used to be organised in a grand manner every year.”  So it was not up to the big tamasha smashes of yesteryear. A novelty is that “He came to Sai Kushwant Hall on an elephant, Saigeetha, amidst chanting of mantras by Satya Sai Educational Institutions’ students.” And they claim this is not a Hindu sect, but a universal ‘Sai religion’?
“He cut 82 cakes to mark his birthday and thousands of devotees across the world participated in the celebrations.” Having seen how incapable he was of cutting one cake even two years ago this sounds like a convenient ‘white porky’. Somehow it seems so childish, a self-proclaimed Incarnation of Vishnu cutting birthday cakes. Does he also blow out 82 candles, one wonders?

It would seem not, as heE was also unable to speak – something he used to grab every opportunity to do at great length and with incessant repetitions of the same old boring stuff, mythical stories and finger-pointing moralism. As Newindespress stated: “Every year he used to deliver a spiritual lecture but on Friday he refrained from it.” Reports by independent Indian journalists insisted that he speaks in a garbled manner. It is also known that his discourses make less and less coherent sense these days, and they have long had to be edited to remove factual errors and gaffes.

Elaborate arrangements have been made in Puttaparthi as a precautionary measure following a threat from extremists, while every nook and corner of the town was guarded by armed cops.” Sai Baba has repeatedly insisted that dharma is sufficient to protect anyone, especially himself… so what does the enormous security and armed guards tell us? Could it actually be that he is not “loved by the whole world” as he has stated he is?

Sathya Sai Baba on the Moon

Posted by robertpriddy on November 23, 2007


It would indeed be a world event of huge magnitude if everyone around the world could see the face of Sathya Sai Baba on the moon. But only his devotees – and then the most gullible of them – claimed he ever really was visible there. There is a feature on the moon which has the general shape of the Afro-frizz of Sai Baba. Only through zeal and wishing to see more than is visible, can followers regard it as him… others can read into it all manner of other persons with Afro hairstyles (Jimmy Hendrix is a popular one). The man in the moon has many faces – a regular ‘vishvarupa’ phenomenon? (i.e. all divine forms in one)

So before you worshippers get excited about the famous overclouded “darshan of Sathya Sai Baba on the face of the moon” and look for photos from other times and place, first send such photos to NASA for proper confirmation that Sathya Sai Baba DOES figure on the moon …if  you don’t want to look like a literal lunatic. Better to become world famous for discovering the unprecedented astronomical phenomenon, eh? Remember, the moon is under constant observation by hundreds of telescopes and thousands of serious supporting amateur astronomers. Be sure that your photo will most certainly be given the closest of attention. All this would have amused the famous Rorschach considerably.

However, it later transpired that Sai Baba was applauded by hundreds of devotees who were gathered to view this amazing phenomenon of his appearing on the face of the moon (date unknown), if the video on YouTube is what it claims to be!! SEE THE SAI BABA MOON VIDEO HERE!

Only problem is that, in this case it was not SATHYA Sai Baba who they were applauding, but the entirely different looking SHIRDI Sai Baba (who left the body early last century) !

One has to wonder… is are these highly elusive lunar appearances of the nature of a competition between opposed religious camps of followers? Or are they simply delusions which are related to mental derangement through indoctrinated beliefs, and thus closer to lunacy even than lunar worship? Devotees of both Sai Babas see what they want to see with all manner of unbelievable ‘miracles’ that hearsay claims their gurus have performed.

Concocted image which easily deceived countless followers of Sai Baba.

There’s plenty more where the above came from! One has to marvel and have a good laugh! See…

Sai Moon Man
http://www.masala-skeptic.com/2007/12/moonstruck.html This is a comment by someone with a common sense and a sense of humour! And it has links to two videos of the supposed “moon darshan”:The first one is very ‘jumpty’ and there are clearly clouds passing and changing the appearance of the moon. http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3bf23_saibaba-on-the-moon-27102007The second one claims to be “an analysis” when it is simply subjective ink-blot imaginings: – http://www.dailymotion.com/tamgofree/video/x3bnp9_swami-on-the-moon-analyse_news

outlines

I have already shown how quite other faces can just as well be seen – Jimi Hendrix, a serial killer called Tookie Williams, and another face… Now there are other things the eager beaver can see:-  maps of parts of Asia, even India there. Admittedly, this is more interesting than green cheese. People believe anything, see anything hear anything… all according to what they want to see, hear, believe. As if it made any difference other than to fool some poor souls into thinking that Sathya Sai Baba is able actually to influence the moon’s appearance! And to think that India’s ex-President Kalam, Prime Minister Manoman Singh , India’s President Pratibha Patil and a whole list of other top Indian Government ministers, judges and still believe in a person who makes such pointless and bogus claims as he did over this according to his closest servitor, Anil Kumar, in a public announcement! Remember the propaganda, Sathya Sai Baba claims outright to be the Creator of the Universe – nothing less than that! It is both laughable and tragic (for India’s reputation).

Attempts at damage-limiting denial
Someone wrote a comment to me saying that Sai Baba never said he would appear on the moon. The same was asserted by Gerald Joe Moreno on one of his thousands of web pages attacking critics of SB and who is famously in total denial about every sensitive fact about Sathya Sai Baba. These are typical symptoms of near-pathological denial or, at best, the regurgitation of disinformation. It is an attempt to explain away the undeniable facts of the matter so as to retain faith in this deceiving guru and self-declared incarnation of all Divine entities rolled into one!

What does Sathya Sai Baba say about it now?

Nothing!! Nowhere can one discover that he has denied it or mentioned it at all. As all who have been close to him know, he only lets people know what he wants them to believe. He answers only those questions he wishes, and ignored most questions. His officials are remarkably silent about the entire issue. Even were they to make an announcement, one could be almost certain it will be a deception. They are notorious for twisting the facts about him (particularly when he repeatedly has broken his hip, his arm, lost an eye etc. some claiming he is in full vigour and perfect health (though anyone can discover how decrepit and senile he is, besides not being able to speak clearly and so not hold any more boring discourses). With the former huge sums of donated money falling off, every effort is made by the ashram and the Sathya Sai Organization (through internal circulars) to keep devotees in the dark.

Back to the Moon

Strange indeed that so many devotees claim to have seen this (here)? Even the semi-official saibabaofindia.com websiteclaims this. Strange that he went to the airport where Anil Kumar told everyone to go for the moon darshan (according to numerous news reports shortly thereafter such as Sai-affiliated Sify.com here) and strange he got stuck in his car in the crown of 20,000 for a long time until he had to go back. Strange that the sky was clouded over too?

82nd Birthday of Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on November 22, 2007

Prashanthi Birthday Lights Display 

As usual Prashanthi Nilayam will no doubt be packed with people, mostly Indian villagers, on November 23rd to celebrate the 82’nd birthday of Sathya Sai Baba. There will surely be wasteful and childish light shows and fireworks to attract the gaping crowds, plus free handouts of this and that [paid for by donations]. Probably that same second-class blues-rock band from UK will pollute the air again. The ridiculous jeep-chariots will probably not be used since Sai Baba now rides in custom-built converted golf buggies and super-wheelchairs.So that there will also be something reasonable and true to read, I have prepared a number of web pages documenting the views of V.K. Narasimhan as recorded by me through the years which show that things are not at all as the seem, or are made to seem, at Prashanthi Nilayam. I have posted scans of some of the letters – or suitable excerpts –  I received from V.K. Narasimhan which show that I was a close confidante of his (see here), and not least scans of some of the many hundreds of diary and notebook pages where I recorded at considerable length daily events, important conversations and much else observed at the time during my nine long visits (about 400 days in all). See here.The reason for showing the scans is so that there can be no doubt of the existence of these notebooks and their contents, which include countless details of controllable facts (the weather, when darshans were given and where, many local circumstances and person met on definite days etc.).

Sathya Sai Baba Promotes ‘Human Values’

Posted by robertpriddy on November 11, 2007

Many followers of Sathya Sai Baba think his promotion of human values is something extraordinary. Schools and voluntary projects have been started by them in various countries, and efforts are constantly made to introduce them into national educational systems.
Unfortunately, the values Sathya Sai presumes to teach are not human values as such, but are clearly explained to be divine values implanted, so to speak, in the human make-up. According to him, moreover, they are “eternal, fixed” values. He has created a fixed dogma for his followers, who dare not change anything for fear of offending him (self-promoted as the Divine Creator of the divine values themselves!).

He identifies them as being (only) five major values, using the most ambiguous and all-encompassing words ‘love’, ‘truth’, ‘peace’, ‘righteousness’ and ‘non-violence’.
All other values, his educational programmes teach, are sub-values of the five big ones.

Serious flaws and shortcomings on the ‘five human values’ doctrine include:-
1) These values exclude most important standards upon which modern, civilised societies depend: universal human rights, the specifically human (i.e. not God-given) value of justice, the human precepts of democracy, respect for the equality of women and social fairness.
2) The values are made to seem inflexible, God-given once-and-for-all ‘eternal ideas’, But no human values are set in stone – they develop with advances in morality and changes in civilised circumstances. Attempts at codification of moral values – especially the rigid kinds – have always led to suppression of people throughout history. There are natural, human reasons for this.
3) Their vagueness makes then useless as practical conceptual tools, and they are presented in a one-dimensional way without even trying to take account of the endlessly many nuances of real human behaviour, the moral dilemmas that arise and to which there are no simple answers (as Sathya Sai proposes there are).
4) The various values education institutions set up in the name of Sathya Sai Baba work in complete isolation from modern educational research, pedagogy and developing scientific understanding of the learning process, and consider his doctrine as sufficient and necessarily unchanging, immune to debate or modification.
5) Since Sathya Sai Baba insists that all teaching is worthless unless the teacher practices what is taught to the full. This disqualifies him as a teacher, because of his own many proven untruths, fraudulence, deceits, unaccountability, and the many crimes it is credibly alleged he has committed (for which he cannot be brought to justice due to governmental protection).

Teachers in the Education in Human Values projects and Sai Educare
Though well-meaning individuals support these ‘Sai Baba human values’, they owe it to society – and above all to children – to study the entire field of moral education and pedagogical research into child development and learning far more deeply, less doctrinally and allow open discussion and, above all, dissent where it is made on a well-stated and reasonable basis. So far, nothing produces by any of the Sathya Sai human value educators stands up as sound philosophy, or new ideas producing (independently studied) good long-term results or contributing any valid and tested insight and understanding into the questions of human values. The pedagogical method used combines ideas and techniques taken from other sources, such as story-telling, role-playing and ‘though for the day’.
