Isaac Tigrett: a self-important self-appointed Sai Baba spokesman and right hand executive who has lost all credibility with sane citizens (including many badly deceived but otherwise harmless devotees) has retreated more and more from reality into a land of subjective dreams and imaginings.
He now tells that ‘Swami’s subtle body’ was in Kodaikanal. That’s peculiar for a start. But the subtle body gave two discourses! So who on earth heard them? Tigrett fudges his statement to make it appear to gullible people in denial about Sai Baba’s demise that 150 people witnessed this. But guess what, since no one other has reported this, we much conclude it was to none other than Mr. Isaac WOW Tigrett alone! However, films (of the subtle body??) and “many” discourses will be released soon! Most likely, these ‘discourses’ will be authored by Tigrett himself while believing that he is in touch with the mind of the self-proclaimed Creator of the Universe! If the films genuinely show any remnant of Sai Baba whatever, it should be a world sensation.
(I don’t think this is remotely possible without faking).
Tigrett’s much-touted major ashram and world-healing project – the Mystic Inn of the Seventh Ray, which was to be built in Coorg – has failed to materialise (though initiated and guaranteed by Sai Baba, according to Tigrett). To keep up the pretense of his key role as the avatar’s spokesman and messenger, he seems to have been driven to new heights of pie in the sky so as to keep his own followers interested and excite all those deluded followers who want desperately to believe that Sai Baba is still around. Could it be that Mr. Tigrett, whose fortune has dwindled so greatly, is hoping to attract and impress remaining believers into donating to the still on-ice ‘Mystic Inn Project’, or is it simply that he can’t stand not being in the news himself?
It is indicative of Tigrett’s attempt to impose his views on others that he tries to shout in text by using ever bigger capital letters for his most excited claims. The claim that Sai Baba live on behind the scenes to complete his former projects until the age of 96 is risible (one of the several well-documented different ages he prophesied he would ‘leave the body’).
What was Sai Baba supposed to do after completing his declared mission after his relatively minimal influence on cleaning up India in his lifetime to lead and save the world and especially all his devotees etc.? Would he then leave to world to its fate forever, massive resource depletion, climate catastrophe and all that would follow? Ask Tigrett who will surely have an answer! But he would not be able to explain why Sai Baba repeatedly claimed he never suffered any illness due to his “purity, patience and perseverance” but then became dependent on drugs to function, ending with the failure of one major organ after another – heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, liver, and brain. (see here)
An ex-devotee and former national leader in the Sathya Sai Organisation wrote to me about it and commented:
“The funniest passage from Tigrett for me is this: I AM SURE THIS IS BEYOND UNDERSTANDING FOR MANY AS IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO COMPREHEND THIS PHENOMENON INTELLECTUALLY BUT ONLY THROUGH THE BOUNDLESS PERCEPTION OF THE HEART. Only through blind faith! Only at face value!”
That sums us the deranged mentality of Tigrett, the total denial of proven facts, known actions, lies, false predictions galore and diverse and abominable crimes by Sai Baba. Indeed, Tigrett fallaciously and unwittingly believes that we have an organ of intelligence and truth which is NOT the brain, but the heart (as Sai Baba always preached). However, the heart is nothing but an organ for pumping blood around the body. The commonly abused term ‘the heart’ refers to our emotions, vague intuitions, personal hopes and beliefs, the capacity for sympathy, preferably believing the best (whatever), though the heart is also widely considered to be the seat of enmity, envy, hate, and evil. In short, all irrational impulses and ideas are attributed to ‘the heart’, while they are in fact inseparable from the functions of the brain and cerebral cortex. Thus, there is only the brain, no independent heart. Tigrett’s life is obviously increasingly lost in dreaming and his ‘being’ is becoming less and less sane. He has taken leave of his senses, literally, which is exactly what Sai Baba preached that everyone should do… rely entirely on the heart, faith and God (i.e. himself). But this is to rely on irrational ‘inner promptings’ and a non-existent imagined entity. A resurrected Sai Baba in a talking (and walking?) ‘subtle body’ like a ‘living doll’… a cosmic laughing-stock!
Most likely the the official Sathya Sai Organisation and Trust will once again simply ignore Isaac’s declarations, or possible disclaim his pretended role as channeler of Sai Baba’s ghost! They have long argued (erroneously as usual) that Sai Baba – whose registered age at death was 84 by Western reckoning) did actually live until 96 because he reckoned in lunar years, not solar/calendar years! Tigrett has long been a divisive figure in the Sai movement and he still helps ensure that the rapidly diminishing body of remaining devotees will scatter like so many Jesus-believing Christian, each having one of many different beliefs about the ‘second coming’ of Sathya Sai Baba or the ‘third coming’ of some fake Sai avatar, such as one of the various ‘Prema Sai’ incarnations that have already begun to stake their claims.
As to the famous “separation of the wheat and the chaff” (also variously “the rams from the sheep”), this was one of Sai Baba’s attempts to explain the desertion of many devotees when the facts about his sexual abuses were exposed worldwide on such a scale and so utterly convincingly. Since then the supposed ‘wheat’ has diminished and become entirely half-baked. The remaining rams are still but herded sheep, entrapped in the fold of the movement where delusions and fears of rebirth and sufferings to those who leave flourish!

I say many have tried to circumvent the energy conservation law, none have succeeded. Nonetheless, ‘the Teacher’ Tigrett refers to seems to defy natural law… Wandering the astral planes, talking to people in their ‘ethereal’ body, filmed in would-be 3D?? It takes expensive holographic technology to pull this newest horseshit off and make it a bit more believable than the Gerry Andersonesque Thunderbirdlike animation that Tigrett put up to sell his cockamamie Mystic Inn of the 7th Ray. A Sai Baba doll handled by a deft puppeteer does not cut it, though it would probably make for a far more enjoyable movie than the Bollywood ones on the late master of masters.
