Sathya Sai Baba welcomes all important and rich persons, especially Presidents, Prime Ministers and royalty, always giving them full priority over all those who work selflessly for him, however spiritual they may be. For example, the despotic rulers, the super-rich King & Queen of Nepal, were blessed by Sathya Sai Baba as seen in the photo from Sanathana Sarathi (March 1999). They were foully murdered by their own son in 2001! So much for the validity of Sai Baba’s blessings and his guarantee to all who are devoted to him ‘Why Fear When I Am Here?’
Rationalizing devotees will excuse Sai Baba on the grounds that “only He knows what is best for anyone” and he says that one must face death without fear and so in and on. But this only shows how slippery the words of Sai Baba invariably are! That Sai Baba immediately gave such a despot his time and praises will not be misinterpreted by independent-minded observers. That King Gjanendra was hailed as the incarnation of Vishnu – which Sai Baba also claims for himself – is another bizarre aspect of the matter.
