Sathya Sai Baba’s deluded psychiatrist, Dr. Samuel Sandweiss

V.K. Narasimhan told me that Baba had once, during a discourse, said words to the effect that, if a man’s son did not obey his father (in some matter?) it would be better that his father poison him, These words were printed in the Telugu version, but Narasimhan omitted them from the English version. Sai Baba later explained that there had been a man in the audience who has been suffering terrible guilt because he had actually poisoned his son. Baba had said those words for his benefit only. (See scan of notes made at the time and my transcript:

V.K. Narasimhan informed me in 1992 that, when Dr. Samuel Sandweiss had tried to interest 120 psychiatrists to come to Prashanthi (please note: the word ‘Russians’ was mistakenly inserted in place of psychiatrists in a previous version of this text, but it was apparently Sai Baba who made the mistake of thinking them Russian), only 12 had actually planned to come, though even they did not arrive. (The 12 who wanted to come were stopped in Delhi because they would not accept the ordinary tourist visas they were offered, for – being invited delegates to an Indian psychiatric conference – they were expecting official treatment instead.) However, after hearing of the 120 psychiatrists from Sandweiss in the interview room, Swami Himself announced on the porch outside to students and others that 120 ‘Russians'(?) were coming. Sandweiss told Baba of his mistake, who became very angry indeed and immediately sent Sandweiss packing direct back to the U.S. (Narasimhan himself observed this incident).

When the President of the U.S. Sathya Sai Society, Dr. John Hislop, had circulated to top Sai officials in the US the infamous letters concerning the reported male sexual abuses by Sathya Sai Baba, he asked them to destroy after reading and he wrote: “How I wish this whole matter would drop lifeless and never breathe again!” He also suggested that Dr. Samuel Sandweiss should be asked to ‘describe escape mechanisms’ with a view to explaining away the highly credible allegations of male sexual abuse by Sathya Sai Baba he had been informed of from various people. This is like giving a prosecutor the right to take over the defense attorney… because Sandweiss has fully exposed himself as the most partisan and fully self-brainwashed Sai follower as anyone, a ‘true believer’ in massive psychological denial and with many symptom of a serious cognitive disorder which has built up over decades and which he evidently cannot transcend.
