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.
