Sathya Sai Baba on going slowly blind from “sensual pleasures”

Correcting humanity?

“Today man is putting his senses to misuse and as a result his body is becoming weaker day by day. He shortens his life-span by his unsacred vision and by indulgence in sensual pleasures. Lakhs of light rays in his eyes are being destroyed because of his unsacred vision. That is the reason what man is developing eye defects.” (Sathya Sai Baba, discourse on 5/7/2001 Sanathana Sarathi, August 2001,  p. 226)


Comment:  This is the kind of hilarious non-scientific doctrine that students at Sai Baba colleges and ‘university’ have to tolerate. It is so irrational that it could not even qualify as pseudo-science! How many hundreds of thousands of rays of light are being destroyed in people’s eyes, one may ask?

So man shortens his life span? No, there have been vast extensions of human life span made through science and its resultant benefits in recent centuries improvements! Age expectancy has risen progressively in almost all countries in the world, notably excepting Russia since the Soviet State fell and places like Zimbabwe. That man’s body is becoming weaker day by day or his eyes are being destroyed is sheer poppycock! Thatsensual pleasures are the source of physical weakness  – and the root of all evil… is just primitive superstition and base puritan fundamentalism.


Bjorn Lomborg writes in his 2001 book “The Sceptical Environmentalist”: “Fewer and fewer people are starving. In 1900 we lived for an average of 30 years; today we live for 67. According to the UN we have reduced poverty more in the last 50 years than we did in the preceding 500, and it has been reduced in practically every country.”So, any shortcomings in world health certainly have quite other causes than unsacred vision!

Interestingly, Sathya Sai Baba has himself admitted that he was blind in one eye for years because of his having an accident with his hair-dryer! I can just see him using his hair-dryer daily.

View a list of a whole range of false and absurd “teachings” – with comments –  by this uneducated villager who claims Divine Omniscience.
