Sathya Sai Baba makes predictions in private interview situations, knowing that they will spread like wildfire as uncontrollable rumours. Then, when the predictions fail, which they invariably do, there is no documentary proof that he made them, and devotees dare not confront him or what he says in any way. The same with many of the leelas and miracles, they are very important to the Sai Baba legend and are mixed up with disinformation, a clever technique at which Sathya Sai Baba is adept and he uses his unwitting collaborators to propagate.
In 2002, a long-term devotee who was on her 31st visit to see Sathya Sai Baba, had a private interview (in the rear room) which she reported on the Internet (see http://www.saibaba.ws/reports/connieshaw.htm) and which is reproduced here:-
Now that 2008 has long passed by and international war continues in Afghanistan, while massive civil war rages in Syria and a civil war backed by NATO in Libya took place. Outright war also occurred in Russia’s invasion of Georgia in South Ossetia, which Russia still occupies. One may also point to several major civil wars in recent times, such as in Dafur, Indonesia, and currently in the Congo area and in diverse smaller warring conflicts in African states. The so-called ‘war on terror’ is also being actively pursued and the US Congress is to pass a law defining cyber attacks as war, giving the right to respond militarily.
As to the Golden Age and transformation of human consciousness etc. it has been heralded for decades by Sathya Sai Baba but, when failing to occur, has repeatedly been promised for a new and later date. In 1012 it has been further postponed to the advent of Prema Sai, whenever that is supposed to take place. One example:- Rita and Robert Bruce were told by him about practically instant transformation of people’s consciousness after his 80th anniversary But that anniversary was celebrated in 2006! Now we have outright war between nations and still major conflicts displacing millions within nations. What kind of transformation is that? (see The Golden Age of Sai Baba)
Disinformation: “It involves the deliberate, calculated dissemination of equivocal data, partially true, partially erroneous, in order to conceal something, to deflect attention in one or another peripheral or tangential direction. But the best lies are always embellishments or variations of the truth, not total fabrications. The most effective disinformation is always structured around a core of validity.” (from The Messianic Legacy by Baigent, Leigh & Lincoln London 1968)
Sathya Sai Baba has claimed he is the Director behind the scenes of all that happens on the world stage and often stated that events that are inexplicable – or seem evil – to us are all part of his ‘maya’ (i.e deceptive appearances), ‘his Divine sport’ (i.e. leela). This level of disinformation surely surpasses anything the biggest propaganda agencies of the last century have produced. It would be amazingly inexplicable that about 7 Indian Prime Ministers and 5 Presidents have endorsed this charlatan Godhead, were it not for the obvious fact that they have seen his influence as important for their electorate in Andhra Pradesh and subsequently other Indian states and also because he was the biggest foreign currency earner in India for decades. That the Sathya Sai Central Trust was granted total freedom from customs and excise duties and taxation – and even now does not have to make public any accounts of its countless transactions, or meeting minutes – have no doubt made it an Eldorado for money launderers and corrupt politicians, though its secrecy is so tight that this cannot be proven or even investigated! Note that the importance for the Indian economy of payments to the funds of gurus with followings outside the country has been essential, and has been a main source of foreign earnings.
There are any number of prophecies by Sathya Sai Baba which signally failed to come about – a list of links for those not acquainted with these gives the documentation and proofs in each case:-
Sathya Sai Baba failed prophesy as the ‘great saviour of mankind’ – eg. Sai Baba being ‘king of the whole world’ from AD 2000, Muslims recognizing him 9 years before his passing, and the whole world visiting Prashanthi Nilayam.
Sathya Sai Baba prophecies on his own death date – wrongly
Sathya Sai Baba as world saviour Well-known proclamations by Sathya Sai Baba are quoted on how he intends to save the planet and humanity… as well as some of his more incredible prophecies which have so far not come to pass.
