Sathya Sai Baba’s India stable?

Posted by robertpriddy on January 5, 2009

“The fame and fortune of Bharat is truly great. While several countries of the world have faced calamities of various kinds, Bharat has remained stable. It is a country richly endowed with a variety of wealth.” (from Sathya Sai Baba’s Convocation Discourse 22-11-2008)

Comment: This is vague rambling talk: “several countries of the world” (which ones?) “have faced calamities of several kinds”, (what sort of calamities?). However “Bharat has remained stable” Why do the translators use Bharat and not just India? Probably because Sathya Sai Baba is ever harping back to ancient days of Bharat as described in myths? In any case, Indian can hardly be said to have remained any more stable than countless other countries, and it is a more unstable place than most modern countries today, no one can doubt that. There is an entire catalogue of instabilities in India’s entire past and present

Among notable present instabilities is the stand-off over 60 years with Pakistan, nowadays with nuclear weapons involved, and presently much aggravated again by the Mumbai terrorist attacks which this self-proclaimed ‘all-knowing divinity’ failed to mention just a few days before they happened. As is known he made a huge blunder – removed by most of his editors – in claiming India was free of all fear of bombs and attacks! (See Sai Baba bomb claim demolishes his credibility). The list of other “instabilities’ seems endless. To mention a few more: the constant conflict with the suppressed in Manipur, the long series of bomb attacks across the sub-continent, the killing of Christians, the mutual outbursts of mass slaughter between Hindus and Muslims, still continuing since the Indian Partition holocaust. Add to this 800 million deprived people, half of them virtually under the bread line, no proper public health care or common old age pensions, a massive AIDS epidemic… one could go on for pages and pages. So Sathya Sai Baba is talking through his hat about Bharat.

The ultra-simplistic ‘philosophy’ of Sathya Sai Baba:

“Suppose a person whom you consider as an enemy is approaching you; you offer your pranams to him and enquire, “Hello, how are you, brother?” Immediately the other man will respond saying, “How are you brother?” He will not get angry. Why? Since you called him brother, he will also treat you in the same way. It is in your language that either love and faith or enmity and distrust in the other person is displayed.” (ibid)

Tell that to the Marines, to the contenders in the Israel-Palestine conflict, to Mugabe and his ‘friends’, to the Taliban, Al Quaida… One can just see Sathya Sai Baba telling them in person! He, who lives ensconced in a regular fortress, guarded by special undercover agents and surrounded by carefully-vetted and closely-searched devotees, dares not even talk to anyone who disagrees with him. Who is he to give advice? Well, we know who he thinks he is!
