SWARA’s Sai Baba members believe he is God the Creator

From Prof. N. Kasturi's autobiography

The ultimate in one-upmanship! In the official Sathya Sai Baba biographer’s authenticated autobiography leaves no holds barred as regards who this cult leader claims to be! Devotees who become members of his organization are required to believe his statements and teachings! (See the relevant part of its Charter here) Because of the incredibility of the claim, the Sathya Sai organization always presents itself outwardly as a ‘service organization’ and strives to keep that public profile. But it  is really a cover for a proselytizing cult. The recent scandal over the Sai Baba dominated SWARA organization in Brisbane, which has long pulled the wool over government officials’ eyes about their true nature, showed its core cultist nature in forcefully expelling and denying right of speech to members and disabled clients, many of whom oppose the indoctrination by SWARA’s owner, wealthy Moiya O’Brien, and her Sai Baba cult supporters (apparently mainly of Indian origin).

Trying to sidestep the issue, O’Brien lied outright about her beliefs when it was reported the she belongs to a cult, saying:  “That is completely ridiculous. That is not true. The Sai Baba Organisation is not a cult, it is not even a religion. It is a service group.” She also contests disabled clients’ outspoken on camera testimony on the video about the indoctrination which is conducted there… she simply denies it, even though she has actually published what is done in this respect in detail in her book ‘The Touch of the Lord’’. Here are some passages from Chapter Five ‘The Story of SWARA –  Divine Uncertainties, p. 56 which prove her untruthfulness beyond any doubt:-

“We asked Baba in a recent interview if He had a message for all of the SWARA people. He said, “Tell them that I bless them all and I am with them always.” So we passed that on. At SWARA we talk about Baba, so they all know about Him….

The clients know we go to India to see Sai Baba, and we send them cards of Him and His words. We give an inspirational talk to the whole group every day when we work out our program in the mornings and we often bring Sai Baba into conversations and tell them some of His inspiring words. When we prepare the main room in SWARA for the Thursday night devotional singing for the Brisbane Sai Centre, the clients all help to make the room attractive and they arrange the flowers, etc. When we have our Blue Nurses day, the clients all help to roll up the packages of sweets, tidy the rooms and decorate the hall. They play a very active part in all of that and they know it is a Sai Baba service day – everyone sees Him as a special friend and helper.
We tell people that He is a beautiful, loving spiritual being. We have to be cautious about telling people that He is God.”

(my emphasis in red)

The association – run overwhelmingly by Sai Baba devotees –  dismissed professional social worker Kelli Vallis from her post after clients’ diverse and repeated complaints against their administration – forwarded by her – had been sidelined many times and their rights suppressed or ignored, and they took their grievences up in a protest with placards, where they were brutally manhandled. The matter is on-going since it involves a professional wrongly dismissed and more besides.
