SAI BABA LIBELS

SWAMI SHIVANANDA 

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!

SAI BABA VISIONS

Posted by robertpriddy on June 25, 2007

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.
