Sai Baba’s philosophy sandbox – from the pompous to the asinine

Posted by robertpriddy on February 10, 2008

Trying to be deep and appear to be wise, Sathya Sai Baba has pronounced:-“Whatever is not in man cannot be anywhere outside him. Whatever is visible outside him is but a rough reflection of what really is in him.”
(Sathya Sai Vahini – paragraph ii)

COMMENT: Therefore, one can never know anyone else, only oneself. That this can only be false is evident, because it means that, in the case of every individual, ‘only I exist, all else is only my false imagination’. It is absurd that only one individual exists.

And also, in Sathya Sai Speaks we read: “…the world is but a mental image of the individual.” ( Vol.9. p.168 )
and:- “the world is a structure raised on one strong pillar, ‘I’. For, when this ‘I’ is dormant during deep sleep, there is no world as far as you are concerned.” (Vol. IV Ch. 48).
Further on the same lines:-
“Good and ill seen in others is only one’s own reflection and What is outside is a rough reflection of what is within”.

COMMENT: So the world does not exist, except as a mental image of one person! And so that person must be the greatest narcissist imaginable! And Sai Baba fits the bill of a full narcissistic personality! This is extreme advaitic otherworldliness gone completely askew! And this is about the worst philosophy on record, the idea being refuted by every major mind the world has known since Socrates onwards.

Sai Baba also has often insisted that:-
1) no one can understand him or his mystery, not if all humanity combines in the effort for thousands of years.
2) that God can be know by anyone who practices sadhana and attains self-realisation, because God is in the heart and everyone is God.

COMMENT: Both 1) and 2) cannot be true together, only one could possibly be true – but both could be and are most likely false! In either case, Sai Baba contradicts himself and therefore states untruths!
Besides, Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘mystery’ could not protect him from being ‘outed’ by many young men, nor from what others have demonstrated from his own words his countless deceptions and untruths, and reported of the baseless rumours he has spread privately.
SUMMARY COMMENT: Untrained minds with too little knowledge and lacking frankness and honesty – like Sathya Sai Baba’s – are dangerous playthings.
