Sai Baba’s health – miracle or self-sacrifice?

Do you want to remain young always?
The text inset on the left is part of what Sathya Sai Baba said on Mahashivaratri 2000. It was not very long before he had a second hip fracture, in 2003. Though operated on by six doctors and a hip-joint was implanted – did not heal properly. This simple operation carried out on countless patients in modern hospital was either botched (not a good advertisement for his much vaunted “Super-speciality” hospital!) or else Sai Baba did not take the precautions and put stress on his hip too soon. In either case, it shows that there is no truth in what he has proclaimed about himself. He has been wheel-chair ridden since 2003.
Worse than al this, Sathya Sai Baba had set about ‘misleading’ his followers before the hip joint collapsed by claiming that he was staggering because mother earth was so attracted to his hold feet that he had difficulty walking. This he put down to magnetism – even claiming it caused everything to stick to him!! Such a barking mad idea is strange indeed, coming from one who claims Omniscience, Omnipotence, Omni this and that. See ‘Magnetism of feet and hands farce’
How can one believe in a person who lies so much?
Not only his integrity and truthfulness, but also his supposed purity have thus come under suspicion yet further – in additions to the widespread and credibly detailed testimonies by young men about his sexual abuses of them. After the botched job, he made further impossible claims about his hip and bones, which were soundly refuted by the course of actual events.
Another article also exposes the hip injury. Some devotees even try to deny that Sathya Sai Baba ever said anything about magnetic feet or tried to cover up his hip joint deceptions, but all is thoroughly documented from his own discourse and propaganda machine.
