Sai Baba Blatant Lies about ‘Judases’

Posted by robertpriddy on June 30, 2007

(Recapitulation of major calumny by Sai Baba)

Lying attack by Sathya Sai Baba on his critics (Christmas Discourse 2000)

In an angry discourse, Sathya Sai Baba refuted the main tenet of his own lifelong teaching that ‘The Divine Spark is in everyone’!

With his condemnatory Christmas 2000 discourse, Sathya Sai Baba destroyed at a stroke in pubic what remained of his previous lifelong claims to never to condemn anyone, to love all and always to adhere to truth.
He blackened those who criticise, spread negative news or raise doubts, even when there are valid grounds and openness is justified. He goes to the length of branding dissenters as ‘Judases’ implying that their actions can never be redeemed, and elsewhere he adds that they must all suffer shame throughout any number of future births. Further, in a later discourse he proclaims that there is not even a spark of divinity in his critics! So much for Sathya Sai Baba as a compassionate being and an example of pure truth!

[“… a hard-hearted person cannot be called a spark of Divinity; he is verily a demon.” p. 323, Sanathana Sarathi, November 2002]. This is a total contradiction to his constant previous claims that there is a spark of Divinity in every living being (actually sometimes even in all matter, as I quote: “All beings are sparks of the Eternal Divinity” page 101 from his Discourses in Kodaikanal 1998).

He also falsely claimed that ex-devotees were offered bribes to write stories against him. There is not a jot of evidence of this, it was obviously nothing but a lie calculated to try to calm devotees. Bribery is a widely reported method Sai Baba himself uses to silence the victims of his homosexual abuse of them. He did not, however, manage to silence all of them with money, ‘jewellry’ or ‘gold’ watches, as the brave Alaya Rahm and family proved!

from Sathya Sai Baba’s Christmas Discourse, 2000, in the Prashanthi Nilayam temple (mandir)

Bad Publicity Is Shameless

These types of publicity are shameless. Truly they are not human beings at all. The ones who put obstacles in the way of all sacred works are demons, not human beings. The determined vow of Sai will never change, even if demons like this may be all over the world. (Swami bangs his fist decisively on the table to emphasize His point. The audience applauds for long.)

They are trying to reduce the respect for Sai Baba with all this lowly publicity. I do not desire respect at all. If it lessens, what is the loss for Me? Gradually the respect will go on increasing. Even if this publicity goes on, using all the letters of the alphabet, in this whole world and in our country of Bharat, My glory and the respect for Me will NOT BE reduced by even a fraction.

Even many devotees are becoming very weak. They are not true devotees. Even when recognizing the powers of Sai, why should you be afraid of all this crazy, useless talk? The writing that is written on the wall, all the heap that is spoken on the stage and the heap that is written in the paper, they are all rotten heaps. No one needs to pay attention to them.

Bribes To Betray The Guru

Switzerland, America, Japan, Germany, China, Russia – our children have entered in all directions. Some foreigners are trying to bribe them. They are saying, “See, foolish ones! I will give this much money. I will give so many dollars. I will give this many pounds. You write and give some stories against Sathya Sai Baba.”

Ones of certain religions create this bad publicity leading to conversions. They are offering bribes like this. Even one girl staying in Switzerland said that they told, “You write a story and give us.” That girl took the boots which she was wearing from her feet and yelled, “Is this the Truth that your religion teaches? Is this the ideal Truth of your religion? Chi, chi, chi, chi! (“Very, very bad!”) Go!”

Many of these Judas’s get desire for money and they are entering into things like this. Entering into such activities, at last what happened to Judas? He said the name of Jesus, revealing him to the authorities to be captured. After the deed happened, he sat with tears in his eyes. “Cha! Did I do such deceit to my guru? I am Guru Drohi, betrayer of the guru, betrayer of God.” Saying this, he hit himself.

Sai Baba’s actions no longer fitted in with all that he has said about himself as being totally pure, perfect, freed from all lust etc. Sai Baba always said ‘I am not the body’, which was also widely taken as a denial of any connection with what he as ‘his body’ does. This is the essence of the dual personality hypothesis concerning such psychically powerful figures. Indian students who have been abused tell us privately that their teachers, such as Nityananda at the Sai College, told them that the invisible Sai Baba is pure, but the physical Sai Baba can freely rape and kill people as he sees fit! As one commentator has written when Sai Baba “even condemns them to eternal rebirths (in his Christmas discourse 2000 and not exactly in the spirit of Christmas, one might say). To me, such hypocrisy seemed to be the hallmark of organised religion (Christianity) and the main reason I would have nothing to do with it after the age of 11 or 12. Once, I would never have thought that Sathya Sai Baba would turn out to join the ranks of that long line of hypocrites.

During his public discourse some weeks after the 1993 cold-blooded murders of four devotees in his bedroom (June 6th), Sathya Sai Baba also made an aggressive attack in ridiculing, an identifiable body of journalists who visited the ashram in 1993 to find out about the six killings that took place in the temple and Sai Baba’s own quarters. They wrote what they were able to discover in the face of massive secrecy (much based on understandable fear) and all possible impediments from ashram and Central Trust officials, not to mention the totally corrupt Puttaparthi police! Having been challenged to answer a number of perfectly reasonable questions on his role in relation to the murders at the temple (mandir) and where he was at the time, why no complaint was lodged with the police from the Prashanti Nilayam organisation etc., Sai Baba later attacked them in a public discourse as publishing “nothing but flights of the imagination” and for being “malicious”. He thereby went against his own strict demand and defamed others, namely the journalists who were not present to answer for themselves. This defamation of absent persons without recourse to and questioning or explanation amounts to back-biting and mud-slinging, whicvh Sai Baba has called the greatest of sins!  Baba later added to his ‘divine blacklist’ a number of easily identifiable persons who have written about his molestations of them and published this on the Internet. So he has frequently ignored his own words like, “Never speak ill of others” in his own actions.

Sai Baba and brother ordered planned murder of four devotees, 1993  and   Sathya Sai Baba reported to have ordered executions!

Sai Baba has claimed he never eats

Posted by robertpriddy on June 29, 2007

not kumbakarna

Sathya Sai Baba said about fruit offerings made to him at Paduka pooja (worship of his sandals): “Do they think I am Kumbakarna? I do not even take meals, then what are the fruits for?” (Sanathana Sarathi November, 1998). [Note Kumbakarna was a character in the epic Ramayana, of monstrous size and hunger]

He actually denied that he eats! This is what many devotees believe and one can often heard it said or see it written about him -‘he never eats anything!’. But many students have seen him eat his meals beside them, and full meals are prepared for him with great care daily by ladies in the ashram, and they are delivered to the kitchen. One such was Mrs. Ratal Lal, who made him daily meals for many years – and she has told  that he is very demanding and difficult to please in anything. The ‘reward’ was to receive back the plates he had eaten from so that the remainder could be taken as ‘blessed or holy food – prasad’!

He has variously told interviewees that he eats ragi (a millet gruel), chapattis with chutney or takes for breakfast watermelon, papaya, fresh coconut… and often drinks coffee several times daily.

He has said that he never eats, and has added that he eats only for the benefit of devotees. Many of us know better – he is quite the gourmet when visiting his cronies, such as Mr. Prasad of Bangalore in 1995, where IAS officer V. Ramnath was present and reported that Sai Baba ate heartily and well, tasting all the many dishes put before him [by the host’s son, who then asked if he could study in the US, being due to leave within a week – but Sai Baba flatly denied him the right!] But all this must be kept secret from the millions of devotees who cannot see any of it, for what would they think? And the officials and other ashram-dependent devotees living around Sai Baba [and thus indirectly on the donations from well-wishers which were really intended for the poor and suffering] must keep it secret. They don’t want to stop the engine that draws their own gravy train.

This God is not a renunciant by any means, he has the best of everything and a lifestyle far out of reach to the average Indian, not to mention the 40% of the population who live on or under the breadline. Is not revering a person who thrives amid such luxury and pomp as a ‘holy man’ or a practitioner of Indian spiritual ideals a travesty to the proud traditions of the land?

The Swedish psychologist and former follower of Sai Baba wrote of Sai Baba’s narcissism and abusive behaviour

“Sai Baba expresses intense rage, as you can read several places in the book ANYATHÃ SARANAM NASTHI [‘Other than You refuge there is none’], by Smt. Vijaya Kumari. She writes in the pages 68-69 about Sai Baba: “The slightest oversight with regard to arrangements for his meals would provoke Him into a fit of anger. Sometimes He would fling His plate at the wall opposite Him with such force that it would rebound and come back to Him”.

Getting older is very difficult for these personalities, when they realize that they are not as attractive or healthy as they used to be…
In Sanathana Sarathi from October 2002, you can read: “I don´t know any weakness. Usually old people have wrinkles on their faces and they suffer from deafness and cataract. I do not have any signs of old age. (loud applause) there is not a single wrinkle on my face. My eyes shine like stars and my voice is like a loudspeaker…”

As a matter of fact a friend of mine, who recently visited the ashram, told me that Sathya Sai was almost bald on the back of his skull. And even if his face hasn´t any wrinkles, everyone can see that he has got a “turkey throat” So that is something that can threat Sai Baba’s grandiose image of himself.

Sai Baba’s major physical abuse of an infant

It is interesting, but also very frightening to read what Smt. Vijaya Kumari writes about her own son in page 222:

“Everyone used to call him “Chota Baba” (little Baba). He had a full head of crinkled hair. Swami made the boy sit in His lap and asked him, “What is your name?” “Have you drunk milk?” “Would you like to eat rice?” “Do you want to be naughty?” The boy gave replies in a cute way. Everyone was laughing.
The boy was then three years old. Suddenly, Swami made him lie face down in His lap and began beating him hard on the back. None of us knew what to make of it. We were all stunned, and staring at Swami. Who among us had the courage to go near Swami and question Him? The boy’s face looked jaded. He was yelling and crying. “Go, go away from here.” Saying so, Swami pushed the boy away from Him. The poor little boy! He came running to me sobbing. The sobs did not subside even after one hour. Every week, Swami would treat the boy like this, three or four times. The minute I took him out of the cradle my son would say pathetically, “Don´t take me to Swami, mother”, and break into tears. I would feel very pained. But when Swami ordered me to bring the boy, how could I say no? Further I had full faith and confidence in Swami… On the days when Venkamma garu happened to be with us, she would take my son from Swamis lap, saying “That is enough, Swami., My son was by no means mischievous. He was so quiet that none was aware of his presence in a room. But we do not know which “evil power” Swami had to drive away from him. “

Sai Baba and boy
[above is a photo of Sai Baba with that same boy when he had reached puberty]

I would guess that it was some sort of narcissistic offence which provoked this furious and evil behavior from Sai Baba towards the innocent child. Sathya Sai Baba’s confusing behaviour, I think, is just another symptom and a result of his mental disease… I think that he has an extremely narcissistic personality. Kernberg has written a lot about the narcissistic personality disorder. These persons have a psychological disturbance on the borderline level…These persons can also be very charming and charismatic. Often they are very talented and gifted. But inside they are quite empty and bored… They are also, on a deeper level, very lonely persons, who are unable to maintain deep, warm and meaningful relations to others…The narcissist has a very exploitive relation towards others and he/she needs admiration all the time… The narcissists use people as mirrors for themselves…
But at the same time, narcissists don’t bother about inconsistencies in their own behavior or character. They are standing aloof from all these trifles that bother most of us… They live in there self-made heaven, where they have put themselves on a pedestal, very far from us ordinary mortals. Often they seek challenges and are willing to take grand risks because they are so empty and bored inside…

The most conspicuous characteristic for the narcissistic personality is the paradoxical split between two images of the self. One image of the self is the grandiose self (Sai Baba is God himself- can it be more grandiose?) . The other image of the self, which is on a deeper level, is filled of shame, hate and feelings of worthlessness…

The tragedy for Sai Baba and his devotees is that his grandiose self gets continuous nourishment… actually it has been fed with attention and admiration all his life… Of course he has nothing to be afraid of… The other image of his self will never get a chance to show itself… And he will never get the chance to get in contact with his own suffering, which on the long view, could have healed him from his mental disorder…
And if there is at threat to him from this other image of the self to break through, (threat – because this would be very painful for him) he will have to deny its existence or project it on other persons… But there are situations when Sai Baba obviously has been deprived of narcissistic supply or frustrated in some way…

Perhaps the cute little boy, who made everyone laugh, stole all the attention and admiration, that Sai Baba wanted for himself? Perhaps in a deeper level, this little boy, who also was called “little Baba”,   provoked Sai Baba´s deeper feelings of worthlessness and self hate, his other self? Perhaps Sai Baba projected this denied and repressed self of his onto that little boy, who he then had to punish?

I think that Sathya Sai Baba is a VERY SICK person… I was happy when I found him… but I am much happier now, when I have rescued myself from him and the clutches of his cult!

Sai on World Catastrophe?

Posted by robertpriddy on June 27, 2007

Sai Baba almost certainly practiced a major deceit on many people when he should have told 18 young boy students of a coming world catastrophe where he would rule the world for some while and these students would each rule one of the Indian States. Sathya Sai then frightened them with glaring looks (according to Al Drucker) and as usual told them never to breathe a word about it to anyone.  Some of the boys were so disturbed by it that their parents and others had gradually learned the details from one and another. One mother wrote down all she could learn in 29 points, and this account was circulated throughout the small Sai movement in the late 1970s when it emerged. This is one of Sai Baba’s known ways of leaking ‘stories’ and prophesies, a technique repeated by him on numerous  occasions later with different prophesies (several times in interviews about a world catastrophe where he produced maps or even globes showing a vastly altered world – one reported by Mrs. Marge Hendel in the 70s, and in the 80s by a Dane and another by a Yugoslavian).  Sai Baba would have easily calculated that such terrifying predictions from one claiming to be omniscient would leak out. It was said that the tender and vulnerable young boys were in shock and had to be consoled by their parents.

I heard this account from various people in the ashram at various times, and I was also handed a typed version (full of English errors) of the points as noted originally by the mother. I read half of it and then reacted against it and said it was surely bogus etc., but the Danish lady (called Tove and known to many residents in the 1980s and 90s) who gave it to me was extremely affronted and swore that it was genuine. She told that her friend in the Westerner’s canteen (known as ‘the salad auntie’) was circulating it only to trusted ‘insider’ devotees and that ‘salad auntie’ knew the person whose son had told her and so on. Later, when the frenzy became world-wide about the predictions and the Organisation leaders were under much pressure from worried devotees, Sai Baba eventually spoke out and denied all such stories in the strongest of terms. He also condemned very heavily all those when he said were ‘spreading rumours’ and, in time, the poor misled ‘salad auntie’ was made to suffer complete ostracization in the ashram. In later years she was never seen there again. See a full account and the 27 predictions etc.

In short, this prophesy was a ploy to bind people in fear to Sai Baba and his ashram, which was to be unaffected by the catastrophe, even though Bangalore was to be destroyed. It succeeded in many cases, for US ladies sold up their places and moved permanently to the ashram. Who knows how much of the proceeds of their sales went to Sai Baba, but I have information that several persons from the USA gave away so much that they never recovered financially again.

Early on in his career, Sathya Sai prophesied he would have to act during such an event…
“Let me tell you one more thing: Nothing can impede or halt the work of this Avathaara… Formerly when the Govardhanagiri (mountain) was raised aloft by a little boy, the gopis and gopalas realised that Krishna was the Lord. Now, it is not one Govardhanagiri, a whole range will be lifted, you will see!”
(Sathya Sai Speaks Vol.3 new ed. p. 92)

Sai Baba also predicted an airline catastrophe to a visiting Spanish airline pilot, due to a shift in the magnetic pole. Neither event occurred. Also he predicted a nuclear pollution disaster for New Zealand.

Sai Baba Layers of Deceit

Posted by robertpriddy on June 27, 2007



Sathya Sai Baba made his chosen biographer, Prof. N. Kasturi, wait for several years before publishing the first volume of the ‘official biography’ because – according to Kasturi – Sai said people would just think that it was all a story got up by two rogues. In the light of ever-mounting evidence, it now does seems the more likely that this might well have been the case, at least in part. However, the super-eager and grovelling devotee Kasturi was doubtless uncritical and let himself be taken in easily even by the more fantastic stories of ignorant peasants and self-promoting persons about Sathya Sai’s childhood and youth. As far as one can tell now  – long after the event and with nothing but clearly devotionally-biased testimony – most of the ‘miracles’ (if not perhaps all?)  may well have been bogus or due to powerful suggestion and Tantric tricks.

Sathya Sai Baba definitely knew well how to deceive followers long before he met Kasturi. This and the fact that he often lied outright can be seen from books written by his contemporaries who were with him in early days (like Smt. Vijayamma in her  ‘Antyatha Saranam Nasthi – ‘Other than you refuge there is none’. Private publ. 1999:  e-mail: Further, his uncle was a Tantric conjurer and the young Sai performed with the family troupe in surrounding villages… and not least did feats of agility (probably much as one can see on the streets of any Indian cities today)

Sai Baba telling Kasturi that they must avoid being seen as rogues, – an Kasturi publishing it – is like a false bottom in a suitcase… the layer of deceit which most people never look. But Indians live in a culture where it has so far been impossible to control long-inherited corruption and deceitfulness in the struggle for existence of most of the populace. To illustrate the extent to which this can go, I came across the incident of a peasant selling milk from his cow door-to-door to a friend of mine. The cowherd drew milk from his cow’s teat before the buyer (a precaution sensible buyers take there) – but had a hidden balloon of water in his armpit with a tube into his hand so as to thin the milk down unseen by the buyer! Many Indians – especially among the poor who are displaced to the slums – grow up learning the ‘tricks of the trade’ – layer upon layer of deception from their fellow men in the dire and often deadly race for survival and goods. As seasoned India travellers can tell you, it is a very observant foreigner who can outsmart the wide range of conmen and swindlers who are never far away. Sai Baba practices fraud himself (eg. see video clips showing his sleight-of-hand) and sets himself up as an ideal and preceptor for the people of India!

On the basis of a lot of accounts from people at interviews who were told catastrophe stories by Sai Baba – or to whom he showed maps or globes of the earth after vast devastations (‘materialised’ of course). It is almost certain that Sai Baba did make major catastrophe predictions to students in Ootacamund (more later on that),  having most likely counted on the effect it would have in attracting more people, including such as already believed in such things – and not least indirectly so as to boost his foreign income. Then he could turn around and blame others for spreading false rumours! Well, no one within the movement would dare believe that of him. All very cunning! (However, there are some of us who have – despite what we wished should be true – penetrated the layers of cover-up and deception realised how deep they go).

Jiddu Krishnamurthi Jiddu Krishnamurthi and Sathya Sai Baba
The famous journalist and editor of the Indian Express, V.K. Narasimhan [deceased 2000] in his old age followed his wife to live at Sathya Sai Baba’s ashrams. He became the editor of Sai Baba’s monthly journal in 1980 and often accompanied Sai Baba on visits in his car, attended countless Baba interviews and many daily meetings with Baba and students. Narasimhan knew Jiddu Krishnamurti since well before the war, originally through the court case that The Hindu fought on behalf of Krishnamurti’s parents to regain their parental role from C.W. Leadbeater and the Theosophical Society. They had met thereafter through the years, but VKN had become gradually disillusioned by Krishnamurti’s teaching, which developed into a kind of non-teaching, without any direction or definite content. Narsimhan said that Krishnamurti made a hurtful comment to him when he had said that he had become a supporter of Sathya Sai Baba, holding up his hands in dismay.

Later, however, while staying at his temple, Sundaram in Madras, Sathya Sai Baba had actually called in at Adhyar and met Krishnamurti under the famous banyan tree there, said Narasimhan. He related how Sathya Sai Baba said he had told Krishnamurti off curtly for talk of burning scriptures as useless, saying that Krishnamurti had himself never even read the great Indian scriptures (a fact of which Krishnamurti had actually boasted!). These teachings, however, maintained Sathya Sai Baba, were of great importance and solace to millions, therefore Krishnamurti had no right to denigrate them. Sathya Sai Baba had concluded by pointing out that Krishnamurti had not included his own supposedly spiritual writings in this recommended auto da fe. This view on scriptures is known from various statements Sathya Sai Baba has made in the past, such as, “No one has the right to talk patronisingly of the Vedas or disparage them.” (Prof. N. Kasturi Sathyam, Sivam, Sundaram Volume 2, p 43.)

In any case, Krishnamurthi’s books were hardly scriptures or put forth as anything of the kind, for they rather consist mainly in views on psychological self-development, emancipation from certain religious supersitions and freedom of the individual to develop through understanding of oneself and others in the world in which we actually find ourselves (rather than waiting for the ‘next world’ to come and solve all problems). Jiddu Krishnamuthhi was famously proclaimed as the Saviour ‘Maitreya’ (i.e. Jesus come again) by the Theosophical Society, but eventually denied that he was any such thing! Unlike Sathya Sai, he managed to stop ‘riding the tiger’ in time! Despite all Sathya Sai says about understanding and development, all this free thinking and humility is sheer anathema to him in practice. Sai Baba has often denied that there is any such thing as ‘freedom’ (which as usual he never clearly defines). Sai Baba often preaches that all normal worldly engagements are futile and even that the world, life on earth etc. are all an illusion etc. [Though he also preaches the exact opposite on occasion!!] No wonder really that Sathya Sai Baba attacked Krishnamurthi, as K. told V.K.Narasimhan.

Corroboration of Sathya Sai Baba’s negative relationship to Krishnamurti is found in his letter to Rajagopal in 1989 supporting him in pursuing the truth through his litigation against his previous life-long companion, Krishnamurti, reproduced in Baskin’s book (Diane Baskin ‘Divine Memories of Sathya Sai’ new ed., p. 234). The latter reportedly not only tried to dispossess Rajagopal of any share in what he had built up after decades of selfless, unpaid services (penning all the many Krishnamurti books) but had also lived in a secret sexual relationship with Rajagopal’s wife for decades. (Radha Rajagopal Sloss ‘Lives in the Shadow with J. Krishnamurti’. London 1993). Despite all Sathya Sai says about understanding and development, all this free thinking is sheer anathema to him. Sai Baba has often denied that there is any such thing as ‘freedom’ (which as usual he never clearly defines). Sai Baba often preaches that all normal worldly engagements are futile and even that the world, life on earth etc. are all an illusion etc. [Though he also preaches the exact opposite on occasion!!] No wonder really that Sathya Sai Baba attacked Krishnamurthi, as Krishnamurti told V.K.Narasimhan. Swami Prabhupada who debunked Sathya Sai Baba

Another famous Indian Swami got the cold shoulder
Such was also the case with A.C. Bhaktivedasnta Prabhupada of the Hare Krishna (ISKCON) movement. Due to his intimate knowledge of Indian scripture, Swami Prabhupada never recognised Sathya Sai as an avatar. In the 1970s, Prabhupada challenged Sathya Sai to partake in a traditional Hindu disputation about God, which Sai Baba ignored.

This is the text of his letter:- Dear Sai Baba, just recently in the Blitz paper, published on-give the date-we were surprised to find one article “God is an Indian.” And you have claimed to become an incarnation of God to save the human society. What is the ground of your claiming as incarnation? And what you have done to save the human society? Will you explain for enlightenment of us. Or many of us. We have got the list of incarnations recorded in the Vedic scriptures and their respective activities also. So where is that record in the Vedic scripture about your appearing as incarnation? Lord Krsna’s incarnation is fully described in the Srimad-Bhagavatam. SRILA PRABHUPADA  – ISKCON Founder-Acarya  – September 13, 1976

All this further confirms what I have shown in previous blogs – that Sathya Sai ignores and also puts down others who are viewed as spiritual gurus, holy men – and particularly if they do not praise or worship him personally as God!

On a visit with Prof. Kasturi and others to the famous spiritual guru, Swami Shivananda in Rishikesh in July 1957 a photograph was taken (above), which at least proves the visit took place. Sathya Sai Baba allegedly cured the elderly swami of an illness and materialised a special mala (necklace) for him, the necklace being seen in the photo. Interestingly, Swami Sivananda has never corroborated this claim, and it is most unusual he did not regard this as worthy even of a mention. Furhter, his extensive Divine Light Society has never made mention of these claims by Sai Baba in any of their literature, presumably either because the viewed Sathya Sai Baba as uninteresting or fradulent.

Sai Baba adopts attitudes of masterly superiority towards everyone at some stage in their relationship – and belittles all around him, including most visitors to interviews, with jibes and put-downs. He puts down other swamis and alleging masters – if not in public, in interviews (which have been reported by many devotees, mostly ‘on the grapevine’). Sai Baba is definitely not free of the competition for prestige and his followers are proud to announce his alleged ascendency over all other gurus, ‘holy men’ and ‘saints’, as they do in numerous books about him and in talks and public presentations.

Of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Sathya Sai Baba said in an interview to a Dutch group at Brindavan in 1994 who asked him about the guru: “Transcen-dental” (and showed his teeth in a Maharishi smile!), then told them that the mantra he gave them was wrong and that the Maharishi was a ‘dirty man!

According to an American lady devotee who has been in India for ages – known as ‘Om’ to most Sai followers – Sai Baba said to her of Osho Rajneesh (who had tried to force sex with her) that he was ‘a demon’.

This at least shows that Sathya Sai Baba speaks ill of others when it suits him in interviews(which are supposed to be kept confidential, but which Sai Baba uses to seed rumours). Due to this Sai Baba cannot be held to account for it – unless by those who dare to speak out against him!

Swami Abedhananda 

Prof. N. Kasturi wrote: “While at Prasanthi Nilayam, Baba has given Darsan at Ramanasram to Swami Abhedananda  (b.1866-d.1939)as Ramana Maharshi and at Shimoga to Ramanandarao as Ramadas of Kanhangad! Sai Baba has accepted gifts intended for other saints and Gurus, for He was all of them. Baba too has surprised many people by telling them that He has been with them for years, guiding and guarding, when they protest that they are meeting Him for the first time. Baba makes it clear that He is the very guru that they have followed so far.”  [p. 135 – ‘Conversations with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’ by Dr. John Hislop, p 146 new ed. ISBN 81-7208-049-2] Kasturi repeated this ‘story’ in several versions throughout his 4-volume biography. [Swami Abhedananda was born in1866 and died in 1939]

It is worth noting that visions and visitations are not at all uncommon, of course. – whether or not they are pathological symptoms. People who have concentrated intensely on their guru’s figure for decades have auditory and visible ‘illusions’ and other subjective experiences. Almost anything envisaged can seem to become real and the history of appearances, visions and such phenomena from early humans onwards is both vast and intriguing. One small contemporary example, those who envisage aliens often claim to meet them in the flesh, even be abducted by them! Finally, Sai Baba claimed that a light which seemed to appear and merge into his feet was the soul of Ramana Maharshi after he left the body! This claim has been reported by R. Ganapati in his biography, but never ‘officially’ confirmed. One must therefore strongly suspect it.

There is apparently no limit to Sathya Sai Baba’s boasting about himself, as one can see in a majority of his thousands of discourses! His claim to be the fullest possible avatar of God, while all others are ‘women’ by comparison with him, should be sufficient to demonstrate the unlikelihood of his having been able to go as a youth and correct India’s acclaimed and venerable spiritual figures, though he was doubtless precocious and cheeky.

Ramana Maharshi and THE Deity of Deities, Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on June 24, 2007

“I am all deities in one. You may endeavour your best for thousands of years and have all mankind with you in your search. But you cannot understand My Reality.” (US ed. of Kasturi’s Sathyam Sivam Sundaram Vol 3 page 315)

“There was no one to understand Me until I created the whole world” (Official biographer N. Kasturi’s direct quote in ‘Pathway to Peace’ p. 64.)

Sathya Sai Baba said in 1968: “This is a human form in which every Divine entity, every Divine principle, that is to say, all the names and forms ascribed by man to God, are manifest… You are very fortunate that you have the chance to experiences the bliss of the vision of the form, which is the form of all gods, now, in this life itself.” (Sathya Sai Speaks Volume VIII. page 99f)

Sathya Sai Baba – guru of Indian Masters, King of all Deities?
Sathya Sai Baba has told various of his servitors of meetings he claimed he had with famous spiritual figures. This information he apparently not dared to state in public himself, as ridicule could surely only follow. He has many such ‘secrets’ which he spreads effectively as rumours in private group interviews, but will not say in public. Such as about a world catastrophe he has told many people is coming, but denied in public. He told V.K. Narasimhan several times about his [unrecorded, unverified] visits to various famous Indian gurus – notably Sri Aurobindo, and Ramana Maharshi, emphasizing that he had had to give some correction to every one of them. I was told I details of this several times by VKN too. These visits would have taken place in the early 1950s, no doubt supposedly when Sathya Sai disappeared from Puttaparthi for longish periods.

Sathya Sai Baba claimed that he had said to Ramana Maharshi that it was unfitting for him not to cover his body properly by wearing only a loincloth. However, Maharshi never took this advice, as it is well know that he wore only a loincloth till his dying day. Further, he has told Dr. Hislop “The Ramana Maharshi inquiry by itself is not good. It must be combined with meditation.” [p 146 ‘Conversations with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’ by John Hislop,  new ed. ISBN 81-7208-049-2]. So Sai Baba puts himself above Maharshi, who meditated most of his life! All Maharshi followers meditate above all else, so Sai was talking through his hat!

Therefore, this much acclaimed sage did NOT recognise Sathya Sai Baba’s authority, evidently. Ramana Maharshi had no property whatever, but by comparison Sathya Sai Baba  – who claim to own nothing – lives in the lap of luxury with many palace apartments.

I reported in my notes about V.K. Narasimhan’s repeated accounts to him of Sathya Sai Baba’s visits to Swami Sivananda in Rishikesh in 1957 (See my evidence here –  and read the original report in Sathyam, Siva, Sundaram by N. Kasturi – Vol. 1  p.107f) and to Jiddu Krishnamurthi in Madras. He also met briefly with Swami Muktananda and with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

Sathya Sai further told VKN that he had told Aurobindo and the Mother that, though they were celibate, it was still wrong of them to live in the same apartment because of the common perception of this as setting an example. (Rather remarkable when he, long accused of pedophilia, has openly stated in public that he had three boys sleeping in his bedroom!). That Sathya Sai Baba has never made public these claims suggests how unlikely they are to be true. Add to that the fact that Aurobindo and the mother took not a blind bit of notice of that advice!

Here is this “omnipotent wheelchair avatar” in 2007, behaving more like a doleful wooden idol than an ever-healthy non-ageing miracle man he always claimed he would ever be. His alleged healing powers suggest rather “Physician, heal thyself!”

Sai’s 10 avatars

Posted by robertpriddy on June 24, 2007

Sai Baba with N. Kasturi

Sathya Sai Baba selected Prof. N. Kasturi  as his official biographer – a highly impressionable spiritual seeker and college history teacher, who also had a radio chat-show and some reputation as a comic doggerel poet. Kasturi wrote four very florid biographical volumes (‘Sathyam, Sivam, Sundaram’ or ‘Truth, Goodness, Beauty’). The authenticity of these accounts that he naively retells there from uncheckable and clearly most impressionable devotee sources must be seriously questioned. He relied largely on very poor villagers’s stories or beneficiaries of Sai Baba’s grace to become residents within his ashram. By the time they recalled events decades later, no doubt some of them were only to willing to embroider and even invent so that they might benefit from being quoted and recognised by Kasturi and the all-powerful Bhagavan Baba who ruled their village. Here are two examples of such ‘stories’, which are believed by many Sai followers to this day.”A devotee from Kamalapuram was asking Baba to show him some miracle and one day, Baba called him and the members of his family, his mother and the rest, and offered to show them the ten Dasavatharas, the Ten Incarnations of Vishnu! Matsya (the fish), Kurma (the tortoise) and Varaha (the boar) passed off without any incident but, when the terrible form of Narasimha appeared, they shrieked and yelled with fright, fearing that the house might collapse on their heads. They clamoured “Enough,” “Enough,” and Baba calmed down after Mangalarathi (worship of him with a flame) was performed, by persons, who, though they were there, did not see the Forms, because the Vision was not intended for them!” (Sathyam, Sivam, Sundaram Vol. 1 by Prof. N. Kasturi, page 65)

” … the Purohit of a family whose guest Baba was at Mysore was granted, quite unexpectedly, a Vision of Narasimha, and the Srivaishnava Brahmin swooned and did not recover consciousness for several hours.” (Prof. N. Kasturi in Sathyam, Sivam, Sunderam Vol. 1, page 64f.)

Ra. Ganapati adds his shot too: “The Dasavathara Forms were vouchsafed to another gentleman now deceased, a relative of the Karnam family. As a matter of fact, he passed away, because his physical frame was too weak to contain the joy of the Vision. Baba took him to the river and asked him to watch the reflection, His own reflection, in the water. The man announced later that he saw at first Sathya Sai Baba Himself, then, only the halo of hair that surrounds His head, and then all the ten avathars in the order in which they are mentioned in the Puranas; the Kalki avathar on horseback had the form or Baba Himself!” (Baba: Sathya Sai by Ra. Ganapati, p. 81)

Among guru-grovelling writers, few can exceed N. Kasturi or Ra. Ganapati, unless it be Smt. Vijayamma, who knew Sathya Sai as a teenager and has some most disturbing events about her guru to relate, amid some of the wildest worshipful hyperbole on record. More on her later…

Sai Baba displeased

Because of the concerted attempt by Sai Baba’s officials, organization and devotees generally to suppress many facts about Sai Baba so as to present him only or mainly as a social reformer and moral teacher, many Indians who tend to support him are doubtless unware of  the sheer extent of the deceit, fraud and irrationality he practises. Having been taken in on many counts myself (if not on all his most absurd claims)  for many a long year, it is now my task – knowing the literature through and through – to help bring these things to the notice of the public. I am concerned that India’s reputation should not be dragged down further than it may already have been by this man, as it most certainly would be in world opinion eventually if his actual words, predictions, promises, and crime cover-ups were not properly examined. The social reforms, possible mainly because of foreign money (including some of mine), naturally tend to hide all the grisly facts.

The stories about Sathya Sai Baba’s utterly non-credible ‘miracles’ flourish still and there are many hundreds of books which contain one or many more. Few surpass the stories of Prof. N. Kasturi and Ra. Ganapati in extravagence. Let us see what else Ganapati has written (in a book blessed by and never rebutted by Sai Baba or any authority around him) .

“Svami is seated on the Chitravati bed with His devotees. The fullmoon is filling the sky with its cool radiance. Svami has a look at it. Does He think that it looks like His face? Does He further think, ‘Why should it not have a dark wig like my hairy halo?’ As He moves His fingers here on earth an extraordinary phenomenon takes place in the lunar sphere. A halo appears round the moon, like Baba’s tresses! Is that all? The pointed fingers of Baba write something from here on the dark dome. There appears on that heavenly hair-do, the Sankha and Chakra (conch and disc of Vishnu) streaked in lightning. With a further wave of His hand, the conch of lightning dives down into Svami’s hand itself and converts itself into a gleaming white shell-variety as of this earth. Svami pours amrit from it in the mouths of more than a hundred devotees. That conch is still enshrined in the Prashanti Nilayam Puja.” (Baba: Sathya Sai by Ra. Ganapati, p. 81).

One must ask, however suggestible and naive the devotees are, by what power of deception was Sai Baba able to get people like the spiritual seekers Prof. N. Kasturi and Ra. Ganapati to believe in such fantastic stories? How real or meaningful are experiences which are had only by some persons present, but not by others? It reminds one very much of popular TV shows where a hypnotist or an ‘illusionist’ makes volunteers ‘ see’ and ‘hear’ all manner of ridiculous thing. (egs. Paul McKenna, David Copperfield and the yet more impressive Derren Brown). Further, why are the writers about Sai Baba almost never able to state the full names or identities of those to whom they refer, give exact times and places, or provide any controllable information whatever. The end result is as worthless historically and scientifically as old wives’ tale are…

Sai Baba and the moon

Sathya Sai Baba – who famously claims that Ravanna, Hiranyakasipu etc. were able to travel to the moon, claims he too has all the knowledge and power in the universe. Why does the Indian government plan extensive space travel and even now to send a man to the moon – if they could just send Sai Baba to get some moonrock and spy out the land? Or perhaps, if they ask him nicely, he will do as is claimed he has done before – bring the moon down to earth!

Sathya Sai Baba eventually blessed the two-volume work by a devotee who had scoured the area of Puttaparthi and beyond for any stories he could find about the youth and life of Sathya Sai Baba. In his constant humilty and gaping wonder, Ra. Ganapati writes in a style which may perhaps be described as showering constant nectarine praise and over-embellished hyperbole on Sai Baba. The fabulous descriptions defy all reason and common sense (about which fact SSB and his followers enjoy boasting!) but of course they cannot be checked in any reliably means. Here are some of Ganapati’s miracle regurgitations…

Ganapati wrote that on 8/12/1973 on a stop with Sathya Sai Baba between Prashanthi Nilayam and Brindavan devotees threw stones at a wood-apple tree and brought down one unripe fruit. “Svami bent down and picked it up. Holding it between the thumb and forefinger He said, “Here is the moon”! When He closed His palm over the piece for an instant and opened it again, the fruit was no longer found. Instead an unusual article was in his hand. It was a translucent sphere. The sunlight was gorgeously reflected out of its surface. Though as a whole it was luminiscent there were several dim and even dark spots inside. Multi-hued veins of minerals could also be seen. Superficially smooth-surfaced, it revealed elevations and depressions inside.

“The mini-moon, made up of all the ingredients of the moon”, observed Baba.
Only a few days before, the newspapers had carried photographs of both sides of the moon transmitted by spacecraft. All their features could be precisely perceived in this three-D-mini-moon. More than that, it was refracting the spectrum of colours in sunshine. The party enjoyed the picnic in the glades. Svami held up the mini-moon finally to sunlight. The solar rays glancing off the outer rim sprayed gold. “Do you see the moon rise?” asked Sai, as pleasing as the moon itself. With one more folding and unfolding of His hand, the mini-moon set! It had returned to its old wood-apple birth!
(Baba: Sathya Sai by Ra. Ganapati, p. 83f).

Comment: Who decided that all the features of the moon photos could be perceived “precisely” in the mini-moon? Not only did the mini-moon”spray gold”but it also “refracted the spectrum of colours” which the actual moon never does. Was it then just a mottled glass sphere, perhaps? Note Ganapati’s reliance on poetic license in saying that Sai is as “pleasing as the moon itself”…but then the actual moon – which may sometimes look nice – is in reality a barren, inhospitable, cold thing. Does not the ‘rising and setting’ of this mini-moon remind more of the rise and fall of Sai Baba as his use of sleight of hand has been repeatedly filmed beyond any doubt? Where are all the accounts by witnesses, who were they… surely they would have thought this miracle worth recording and at least telling Sai writers about. But no! All in all, who can credit this but ‘true believers’ who will defy all reason?

This week the Sunday Indian lists Sathya Sai Baba as a ‘manipulator’.  See EditIndia: Indian Media Journalism Website/Blog

Congratulations to ‘The Sunday Indian’, a recently-launched and very successful Indian magazine seems prominent in defending the vastly suffering populace against corruption and worse and in speaking up boldly  for human rights in India and East Asia. It offers some hope to the genuinely disenfranchised Indians who – despite the ‘democratic vote – are still suffering every kind of injustice, deprivation and crimes under the aegis of an ineffective and political system and uncaring policies, relentless profiteers and religious extremism. Cash prizes go from the magazine to people who tell it as it is, such a in the following comment on their article ‘A Nation Wasted’:

”Figures speak louder than words and this was evident in “A Nation Wasted” (TSI June4-June10). The basic necessities of a man – a shelter, clothes and food. While the first two were never on the priority list of the government, it seems even food is not there now. The appalling fact that Public Distribution System wastes food grains worth Rs 58000 should not be ignored when almost 22 crore of our population goes to bed hungry. The government needs to adopt corporate style of working – being responsible and accountable for its actions. Citizens should scrutinise and take the government to legal court by using RTI.”

Manipulators included:-
VP Singh -VK Krishna Menon – Giani Zail Singh – PV Narasimha Rao – Harshad Mehta – Dhirendra Brahmachari – Rekha – (Sri Sri) Ravi Shankar – Acharya Chatur Sen  – Sathya Sai Baba  – Imam Abdullah Bukhari – Sheikh Abdullah – Jytoi Basu – Ranganath Mishra – Devi Lal – Morarji Desai – TT Krishnamachari – RN Goenka – Maharaja Hari Singh.

Comment: We note the name PV Narasimha Rao – an ex-Prime Minister originally convicted of massive corruption and a Sai devotee who flew to Sai Baba to thank him personally for saving him from imprisonment! The newspaper magnate RN Goenka, who was a Sai Baba worshipper – is also listed as a ‘manipulator’. Also the humble visitor to Sai Baba, the ‘art of living’ money magnate Ravi Shankar!

Mavericks included:-
Lalu Yadav – NT Rama Rao – Bal Thackeray – Ra Narain – Uma Bharti – George Fernandes – Saadat Hasan Manto – Ram Jethmalani – OP Nayyar
Dada Kondke – Protima Bedi – Biju Patnaik – Subrato Sahara – Mahendra Singh Tikait – Pamela Bordes – Meena Kumari

Among other well-known figures of the past 100 years the magazine lists under ‘Rebels and Renegades’ are Dawood Ibrahim (who fled justice in India to Dubai) and Veerappan (the moustachioed bandit and police killer who evaded capture for decades). Then Mohamed Ali Jinnah, who, as everyone must know, was the main protagonist who insisted on splitting Pakistan from India, causing untold deaths and sufferings for millions of Hindus and Muslims.

Under the peculiar title ‘lightning rods, we find the dangerous but deceased Sanjay Gandhi along with the Hindu Bharatiya Janata party’s LK Advani. Also Osho Rajneesh – another most famous sex and money guru.

In a hagiography called ‘Conversations with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba’ ISBN 81-7208-049-2 page 164. Dr. John Hislop asked about life beyond the earth and Sathya SaiBaba replied,

H: “Science says there are many planets where there will be much the same life.”
Sai: “In all the universe there is no other planet that has human life, or a similar life form.”

Later, in ‘My Baba and I’ by Dr. John Hislop  (p.225-6 – Birth Day Publishing, San Diego 1985), we read the exact opposite:
Sai Baba said “All life may flow toward God. Even frogs in a pond and insects.”
J.H: “But Swami, that is life in this world. I mean life elsewhere in the universe.”

Sai: “… The question about life in the universe arises because you project your own particular circumstances. You feel that other ways of life would be intolerable for you. In the hot, blazing Sun, for instance, beings are livinhis life exists in circumstances considered to be intolerable by you. Elsewhere in the Universe, life feels it is Divinity, is one with Divinity, and is quite happy, and feeling all is right.”

Comment: As here, Sathya Sai Baba often contradicts himself on many major issues (whether there is free will or not, whether there is a divine spark in every being or not etc. etc.). This helps satisfy each party – they read only which version they want to believe and then deceive themselves that he knows and is telling them the truth!

Now, that some form of life will be found to exist outside earth is highly likely, according to one of the world’s recognised most foremost geneticists, Prof. Richard Dawkins of Oxford University. Dawkins makes a calculation of the chances of the same basic conditions for life as exist on earth to show, in summary, that “…my earlier calculation demonstrated that even a chemical model with odds of success as low as one in a billion, would still predict that life would arise on a billion planets in the universe.” He also points out that “a chemical model need only predict that life will arise on one planet in a billion billion to give us a good and entirely satisfying explanation for the presence of life here.

Indian dignitaries & well-known names worship Sathya Sai Baba in public and give credence to his megalomaniacal and impossibly absurd claims?

That alone is TRULY SCANDALOUS and a slur on their intelligence – or perhaps the intellectual honesty – of all involved [quite apart from the many serious allegations of sexual abuse and being a suspect murder accomplice]. A few of the lies promulgated by Sathya Sai Baba documented in his own words can be seen here, and here, and here! Indians who continue to allow this self-proclaimed Incarnation of God who says he sent Jesus to earth will become a world laughing stock as time goes by. On this blog I have shown a small sample of the deceptions and unbelievable claims made by Sai Baba:-

Sai-fi fantasy
Sathya Sai Baba firmly claims that he was himself Krishna and was 84 years old at time of Mahabharata war and that he was also Lord Rama and did what is told in the Ramayana, defeating demons, flying in mantra-driven ‘airplanes’, killing Ravana, banishing his wife etc. How come most Indian politicians accept this?
Sai Legend Howlers
Fantastic legendary stories from Indian mythology are presented as fact by Sathya Sai Baba. This man is recognised as a holy sage by ca. 8 Indian Prime Ministers, Presidents, rich and famous Indians and many influential foreigners. It is worth thinking about how and why they let themselves be so easily deceived.
Creationist Museum in the US and Sai Baba’s claims as Creator
The world’s first creationist museum, which tells visitors the Earth is only about 6,000 years old. It is in the Petersburg, Kentucky. It makes many too fantastic claims, but does not mention the self-proclaimed Creator of the Universe, Sathya Sai Baba. He could have helped out a lot, one might think!
Sai Baba Howlers
The 2004 tsunami was dealt with ‘saientifically’ by Sathya Sai Baba – the clownish ‘saviour of mankind’ himself, the God who can save or deal out karma. He blamed it on ‘man’ – retribution for our bad conduct! It also devastated his own State of Andhra Pradesh. Volcanoes and earthquakes – he often proclaims – are the result of ‘man’s behaviour’. But they began long before man arrived! He is a thumping fundamentalist who says sensual pleasures are making human bodies weaker daily while life-spans shorten. Eye defects are developing due to ‘unsacred vision’! But he lost the sight in one eye himself!

So Here is a list of some names who support Sathya Sai Baba in public:-

Current President of India A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Pratibha Patil (apparently all set to be the new next President of India)
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh (long-term devotee of Sai Baba)
Minister for Home Affairs, Shivraj Patil (in the Singh government, despite having lost his seat in the last election!)
Former Chief Justice of India P.N. Bagawati has been close to Sathya Sai Baba for decades & is on The Sathya Sai Central Trust.
By 1995, it was possible to list more than 55 judges in the Supreme Court, high courts, chief justices, chairmen of various commissions who were Sathya Sai baba devotees.
Chief Justice, Dr A. Anand – Supreme Court of India.
Justices G.B. Pattnaik & R.C. Lahoti (who together blocked Mr. H. Sampath’s Supreme Court petition against Sai Baba see here).
Supreme Court judges G.F. Ray and Jagannatha Rao visited Sai Baba after the birthday celebrations of 23-11-1998. Justice J. Easwara Prasad wrote a panegyric in Sathya Sai Baba’s journal Sanathana Sarathi in Nov. 1990.
All the above accept – by their actions – Sathya Sai Baba’s unconstitutional authority to avoid proper and just investigations.

Indian Chief Electoral Commissioner T.N. Seshan (ret’d 1996 – wears ring with large supposed ‘diamond’ he believes was ‘materialised from thin air’ by Sai Baba)
Former President of India V.V. Giri & wife Srimatha Saraswati Giri. (see Sathyam, Sivam, Sundaram Vol 3 last chapter but two)
