Sathya Sai Baba miraculously ‘shows’ 10 avatars

Posted by robertpriddy on June 25, 2008

One must ask, by what kind of deceptive suggestion or ‘hypnosis’ was Sathya Sai Baba able to get people actually to believe they experienced former avatars? The ‘spiritual seekers’ Prof. N. Kasturi and Ra. Ganapati evidently took these fantastic fables – and literally all the miracle stories told by villagers – at face value. How real or meaningful are experiences which are had only by some persons present, but not by others? Well, there are illusionists who can do such things under TV cameras… see more below the following quotes.

“… the Purohit of a family whose guest Baba was at Mysore was granted, quite unexpectedly, a Vision of Narasimha, and the Srivaishnava Brahmin swooned and did not recover consciousness for several hours.” (Prof. N. Kasturi in Sathyam, Sivam, Sundaram Vol. 1, page 64f.)

“The Dasavathara Forms were vouchsafed to another gentleman now deceased, a relative of the Karnam family. As a matter of fact, he passed away, because his physical frame was too weak to contain the joy of the Vision. Baba took him to the river and asked him to watch the reflection, His own reflection, in the water. The man announced later that he saw at first Sathya Sai Baba Himself, then, only the halo of hair that surrounds His head, and then all the ten avathars in the order in which they are mentioned in the Puranas; the Kalki avathar on horseback had the form or Baba Himself!” (Baba: Sathya Sai by Ra. Ganapati, p. 81)

“Svami is seated on the Chitravati bed with His devotees. The fullmoon is filling the sky with its cool radiance. Svami has a look at it. Does He think that it looks like His face? Does He further think, ‘Why should it not have a dark wig like my hairy halo?’ As He moves His fingers here on earth an extraordinary phenomenon takes place in the lunar sphere. A halo appears round the moon, like Baba’s tresses! Is that all? The pointed fingers of Baba write something from here on the dark dome. There appears on that heavenly hair-do, the Sankha and Chakra (conch and disc of Vishnu) streaked in lightning. With a further wave of His hand, the conch of lightning dives down into Svami’s hand itself and converts itself into a gleaming white shell-variety as of this earth. Svami pours amrit from it in the mouths of more than a hundred devotees. That conch is still enshrined in the Prashanti Nilayam Puja.” (Baba: Sathya Sai by Ra. Ganapati, p. 81).Amrit appears from the ocean

Historically or scientifically these tall tales are about as worthless as any non-credible ancient legend… such as that of the churning of the ocean in the Ramayana, and the subsequent appearance of a most beautiful damsel bearing the nectar of eternal life!

Yet Sai Baba often relates them to his students as if they were sheer fact!

Many popular TV shows in the West have so-called ‘hypnotists’ make volunteers ‘ see’ and ‘hear’ all manner of extraordinary and ridiculous things, and to do all kinds of involuntary actions – often absurd (for entertainment). The ‘subjects’ are interviewed afterwards and express astonishment at what they experienced or did themselves. These illusionist showmen include the famous Paul McKenna, the former FBI expert in illusion and magic, Mark Salem and not least the remarkable sceptic Derren Brown, who many consider a great psychic despite his explanations on the series of BBC Channel 4 TV programmes that no psychic powers are involved. See Derren Brown in action here and here for a start.

One should note that the ‘stories’ published about Sathya Sai Baba by Kasturi, Ganapati and many others are attributed to anonymous or completely untraceable persons. In many cases they have been gathered by hearsay at third hand, and are therefore to be considered highly unreliable and certainly not proven by any means acceptable to serious investigators.

Professor Anil Kumar, Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘left-hand’ man

Posted by robertpriddy on June 25, 2008

Professor Anil Kumar, very close servitor and interpreter of Sathya Sai Baba


Professor Anil Kumar is one of Sai Baba’s most trusted accomplices. He is a married man, but is also accused most credibly of philandering, and with Sai Baba’s permission too! So much for the morals and human values in Brindavan! I refer to Conny Larsson’s bestseller in Sweden ‘Behind the Mask of the Clown’ in which he exposes Sathya Sai Baba as a serial molestor of males, a deceiver and a practitioner of sleight-of-hand.

In his endless moralising discourses, Sathya Sai Baba sets impossibly high standards as to sexual chastity before marriage and even within marriage, but he condones sleeping around by his personal translator and close servitor! This is hypocrisy, of course… matched only by his own widely reported and testified homosexual promiscuity.

Conny Larsson with girlfriend \'Tuula\' Anja Tammelin Here is the excerpt in which Larsson describes how his girlfriend ‘Tuula’ Anja Tammelin was seduced into a sex relationship by the sanctimonious ‘devotee’ Professor Anil Kumar! The excerpt is from here

“One day I heard rumors from India that Baba had introduced a new man to Tuula, the Indian Anil Kumar, who was Baba’s own English interpreter at public appearances. But he was married and had children! Tuula said nothing about that in her letters. They breathed resignation and a downright hostility towards those who lived at Puttaparthi or served as teachers within the ashram. She never so much as mentioned the earlier relationship between herself and me. Perhaps there was some bitterness about the way Sai Baba directed our lives? I did not know what to think, but I felt a growing anxiety. Finally I got on a plane to fly down to Puttaparthi to find out how matters stood.

“I found Tuula living in an apartment outside the ashram. The apartment was used as a love nest for her and this new man. I was shaken, but I did not feel I was entitled to have any views on Tuula’s love for Anil, as I had left her behind at Puttaparthi in obedience to Baba’s orders.

Sai Baba had again acted in ways that were not in accord with the five human values. After all, by Indian standards Tuula had been made into a concubine, and that with the blessing of my God.

I could not be so presumptuous as to believe that I could determine what was right or wrong when it came to such a colossus as Sai Baba, who had shown the way to so many thousands of people. More educated persons than I had found a refuge in this incarnation of God, so who was I to sit in judgment on the one who was regarded as the new Messiah of our age. I had to acknowledge and take the consequences of my choice to leave Tuula in favor of the road indicated by Baba.” (by Conny Larsson)

Professor Anil Kumar is one of the least credible of Sathya Sai Baba’s unofficial ‘mouthpieces’ with his lip service to the morals of Sathya Sai Baba and his vast credulity about all of Sathya Sai Baba’s claims and wholly uncritical naive acceptance of Sai Baba’s huge boasts about himself and his own importance.
