The International Sathya Sai Organization

Posted by robertpriddy on January 1, 2009

“The Sai religion is the harmonious blending, through love, of all religions. Though some followers and other faiths feel that the Sai religion is contrary to theirs, we should not entertain similar feelings. Ours is the totality, the sum. So we should not limit or restrict our vision” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 10 – p. 283f)

The International Sathya Sai Organization has two faces … one for the public, the other for members. This Janus face has one visage towards the general public and another different one towards its own members. This makes its members get used to a kind of mental ‘double accounting’ according to what they say to insiders or outsiders.

THE PUBLIC FACE Its face towards the world is one of promoting religious tolerance and accepting that anyone can worship what or who they will. It for peace between religions and sects in that reciprocal criticism of the various religion’s different doctrines is to be avoided.

It claims that shared ‘human values’ are at the core of all religions, yet the many differences in religious values are ignored or denied. For example, any human rights which challenge the core values embedded in the different religions are rejected (such as freedom of speech, women’s rights and other challenges to backward religions, sects and cults).

THE PRIVATE FACE The Sathya Sai Organization’s face towards its members is intolerance towards those who can not fully accept Sathya Sai Baba as the avatar, incarnate deity or a being who is perfect and can never be wrong or be criticized. This means that one cannot accept the Christians who believe that ‘only Jesus is the way’, nor and Islam’s total rejection of divine incarnations, nor Mahayana Buddhism’s atheist conceptions.

Members are expected not to inform the public about the extreme tenet of faith members must accept, such as that Sathya Sai Baba’s claim to be God Incarnate, the father who sent Jesus, the Creator of the Universe etc. This applies mainly in Western Sathya Sai organizations where leaders keep a tighter control over members’ publicity for Sathya Sai Baba.

No criticism – however constructive -of any of Sathya Sai Baba organizations or institutions is permitted, for it is lead by a supposedly infallible Divinity.
