His chosen leaders copy his slanders
More documented study on how Sathya Sai Baba practices other than he preaches and manipulates his devotees.

Sathya Sai Baba has said this is wrong “If anyone starts talking ill of others, go away from that place without lending your ears to such evil talk.” Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 27, p. 95). ollowers of Sathya Sai Baba should recall that he claims that his life is his message and his acts are all a perfect example. Sathya Sai Baba has commented sarcastically and in a defamatory way in public on certain easily identifiable persons – such as his rationalist critics, (easily recognised to observers as the much-publicised Mr. Narasimiha of Bangalore University who carried out an investigation into Sathya Sai Baba and B.Premanand who has published much about cover-ups by Sathya Sai Baba and his people) and not least his strong attack well after the event in ridiculing, during his public discourse in July 1993 on an identifiable body of Indian journalists who had visited the ashram after the 1993 murders in Sathya Sai Baba’s bedroom and reported on what they could unearth in the face of massive secrecy and impediments from Sai and his officials.

A typical dilemma for Sai devotees and their leaders is now the conflict between not speaking ill of others and refuting the many allegations against Sathya Sai Baba by defaming critics Those who leave Sathya Sai Baba and especially his outspoken critics have repeatedly been referred to in Sai circles and the Sai Org. as ‘having too big an ego’, or as a ‘bad man’, a term taken up from Sathya Sai Baba who often uses it when warning about persons not present in interviews. Following Sathya Sai Baba’s constant criticisms of others as persons jealous of others and/or Baba’s achievements’ and, more recently, by the demonstrably mendacious Indulal Shah as ‘representing vested interests’. (But in fact he is telling an untruth and in actual fact he represents the vested interests of the Sai mini-financial empire!).  ‘Disgruntled’persons is a favourite label used indiscriminately of all critics in correct ‘Prashanthi-speak’. Even when known to be groundless, these pseudo-explanations are part of the Sai liturgy and function like protective mantras. Sai leaders are particularly in the forefront in branding others to draw attention away from the main culprit and to ‘protect’ devotees from knowing why other devotees can even consider ‘leaving God’ or from finding out any of the very sound reasons for their disaffection. These are the unmistakable symptoms of a truth- threatened cult closing ranks.

The cleverly manipulatory Sai teaching: Already in 1968, Sathya Sai Baba was in full swing against anyone who dares to question or criticise him: “ On one side adoration and homage are piling high into a peak; on the other, abjuration and slander are also peak high. Standing between them, I bless them both…” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 8, p. 97) >One further quotation will suffice, for 1993 – before criticism of him vastly topped all peaks from the past: “…if men whose hearts are filled with the poison of envy indulge in all kinds of slander from remote places, it can be described only as demonic conduct and not that of a human being.(Sathya Sai Speaks Vol.26, p. 267).The use of ‘if’ here was interesting. Nowadays Sathya Sai Baba apparently uses the word ‘slander’ only as anything said to question any word or deed of his!

The continual berating by Sathya Sai Baba of all kinds of persons and professions and the constant haranguing in discourses of his followers for lacking the simplest of virtues as well as all others as falling short of goodness in every conceivable way is so exaggerated as to sound completely hollow. It might be more warranted had he directed his spleen at those who really do deny virtually all moral sense and personal responsibility due to their society’s universally corrupt practices. He should target those who most cynically disregard good values, such as murderous dictators, pseudo-Islamic terrorists, and the mafias of Russia, India and many other countries, the exploiters of children and adults in prostitution and forced labour. But no… Sathya Sai Baba applies his constant negative evaluations so universally as to pretend that he considers himself to be just about the only decent human being alive. Meanwhile he is against human rights! One has to ask how he can be so badly ill-informed about people and the world as to believe that the all peoples in decently educated and civilised societies are so infected by demonic qualities like hate, overbearing envy and greed?

On the one hand Sathya Sai Baba advises, “Come, examine, experience …” and on the other he hand he adds onto this and have faith (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 4, p. 227). Similarly he said, Also “approach, examine, experience, judge and then accept (Sathyam, Sivam, Sundaram Part II, p. 265). His clever duplicity becomes evident when his various statements are compared. On several occasions he has seemed to support seeking through proper investigation, telling that one should believe only what seems correct when examined (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol.1, p 37) and get all facts, investigate the truth without haste (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 26, 377f) always to investigate well before Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 4,  p. 188)
