Sathya Sai Baba contradictions – Proof of the pudding

Posted by robertpriddy on August 31, 2008

Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings are all claimed to be absolutely true  (supposedly being the words of the infallible omniscient Godhead).  They do not depend for their truth on the level of understanding of this or that person on this or that occasion.  What are his devotees supposed to believe from all those lies that they are fed?

Here are some more examples to add to the list (as recently begun here) of Sai lies:–

Sai Lie No. 4: “People may think that Swami is having a number of servants to do his work. I do not need anybody to serve Me; I do not expect any service from others.” Another obvious lie, for every visitor to his ashrams has seen with his/her own eyes how Sai Baba constantly gets and demands personal service from his devotees! One can also read of the services done him personally in  numerous books written to praise him.  For example, humble devotee Smt Vijaya Kumari writes (in ‘Refuge Other Than You I have None‘) that the slightest oversight with regard to arrangements for his meals would provoke Sai Baba into a fit of anger.

Nor was this behaviour restricted to his younger years. Mrs. Ratan Lal lived at Prashanthi Nilayam for decades and made at least one meal of several and varied dishes for Sai Baba daily whenever he was in residence there. She often received the remains back afterwards as Prasad (i.e. a divine blessing – or, if you doubt this – a clever con when one considers how she constantly sweated for decades over providing all the ingredients and cooking them herself according to his strict instructions and – of course – without recompense!).

Surely no one believes that Sai Baba makes his own meals, does his own laundry, shops for anything, services his own cars or dozens of other tasks anyone else must carry out?

Sai Lie No. 5: “Today the whole world is respecting Me.” (Sanathana Sarathi Sept. 2003, p 267).
However, by 2003 hundreds of prominent devotees and leaders in his Organization had left him and lost all respect for him, which they made very clear on the Internet and through other means. Besides, the whole world cannot respect Sai Baba because even his name is far from being known to the ‘whole world’. I have asked numerous people if they have heard of him and received a negative answer.

Sai Lie No. 6: In the same breath as the above quotation, he said:- “Since my childhood I have been respecting everybody.” (Sanathana Sarathi Sept. 2003, p 267)

Sathya Sai Baba certainly showed his intense disrespect of his critics in his infamous Christmas Discourse of 2000 when he called them Judases and demons. That is quite sufficient to prove that his being a conscious liar. Further, Sathya Sai Baba certainly showed his intense disrespect of his critics in his infamous Christmas Discourse of 2000 when he called them Judases and demons. That is quite sufficient to prove that his being a conscious liar.

Yet there is further proof of that being a lie: two years later he attacked his critics very disrespectfully as follows:
“… a hard-hearted person cannot be called a spark of Divinity; he is verily a demon.” p. 323, Sanathana Sarathi, November 2002]. This is of course a total contradiction to his constant previous claims that there is a spark of Divinity in every living being (actually sometimes even in all matter, as I quote:All beings are sparks of the Eternal Divinity” (p. 101 Discourses in Kodaikanal, 1998).
