SATHYA SAI BABA NARCISSISM

Åsa Samsioe, Swedish psychologist and former devotee of Sathya Sai Baba has written as follows:-

“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. See also The World of the Narcissist   These persons have a psychological disturbance on the borderline level. They 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 their 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…

Then he shows intense rage as you can read about 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 SB: “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…
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!”
