Understanding Sathya Sai Baba’s responses to questions

Posted by robertpriddy on June 23, 2009

I shall show here how Sathya Sai Baba does NOT WANT anyone to be able to understand anything about him except what he tells them… virtually everything he says and does signals this. He also is ever telling people in private interviews to keep things secret (especially about money donations, oiling of genitals and worse things of which he stands so widely accused). His is a near paranoid precaution for controlling others and keeping what is generally known about him within the strictest of limits. He claims that if all humanity combined in an effort to understand him for ages, they could never succeed! This is no doubt very off-putting to anyone who might try… an intimidating façade put up by someone who has something – or a lot – to hide. Some deep wound or vulnerable weak spot, perhaps some terrible secret or trauma, which they are compulsively forced to hide.

In all major religions, God is not accountable for any kind of error or wrong doing. As long as one really believes that Sathya Sai Baba is God Almighty in person, one surrenders all chance of understanding anything about him, because he and anything he says or does is therefore by definition inscrutable. Without exception, Sathya Sai Baba either ignores or fobs off anything remotely like a penetrating question that may be put to him once in a blue moon by some relative newcomer who slipped in through the ashrams’ security nets that filter out anyone who is considered not to be already a believer. Due to his systematic use of self-contradiction in his published words on many issues, plus his even more rash statements made in group and private interviews, one realises he says what suits him and his various devious ends as he wishes. Devotees are convinced that his every utterance and gesture bears great meaning has become an undisputed truth at the ashrams, and to contradict him in Sathya Sai Organization meetings is unheard-of and can easily lead to exclusion from membership. This is a cult for blind believers, which only became fully evident after 2000 when the world-wide exposure of his alleged crimes and vast deceptions took off with the Internet.

One may pick out answers to questions from his often vague and over-generalized statements, interpreting them to fit ones own suppositions and inclination. One can often derive quite opposite meanings from the same ambiguous statements he has made. Some people find support for almost whatever they want to believe. Guessing or imagining the possible import of his bodily motions and non-verbal signs (like his constant ‘writing on the air with a finger’ is a main activity for those who attend his darsan.

What we would not accept as a valid or relevant answer from other people, many devotees will immediately accept as profound when it comes from the one they believe to be omniscient. Even if it is a blatant howler or a mispronunciation, a wholly mistaken guess or a classic faux-pas. He often has to ask people to repeat what they asked him (sometimes moving as if cupping his ear). He has done this quite often when I have been speaking to him. Yet even this is taken as a deep lesson teaching God knows what (you must find out “in your heart” – which means, what you want to think). In all major religions, God is not accountable for any kind of error or wrong doing. As long as one really believes that Sathya Sai Baba is God Almighty in person, one surrenders all chance of understanding anything about him.

He will use oblique comments as to be no relevant meaning can be made out of his words except by lengthy musings and investigation. He switches the subject unexpectedly, calls it the product of a ‘mad monkey mind’ or just brushes it aside. The questioner most often takes whatever comes as a significant teaching or even a spiritual directive (fellow interviewees willingly contribute such views afterwards and suggest what it probably signifies) .

One example; when asked by a friend of mine why it was that Jehova (i.e. God, i.e. Sathya Sai Baba) had not told the Jews about reincarnation, but asserted the contrary, Sathya Sai Baba did not understand the question. My friend said that the question was about reincarnation. Without waiting to hear the actual question again, Baba replied, in so many words, “Reincarnation. You cannot understand it. Do not try to think about it. It is like the seed and the fruit.” I saw that this was no answer at all, but afterwards my friend claimed that it was a perfect answer! His view was that, because the question was one that his Jewish wife considered very important, Sathya Sai Baba was telling that they should rather concentrate on other more important things. This shows how the Sai doctrine works on followers, they lose all self-confidence and find a way to accept and even praise anything saidm whatever it is. This is also typical of how an evasive deceiver tries to maintain false perceptions of himself to avoid being unmasked or incriminating himself.

The above is quite typical of Baba’s frequent replies to questions… often in yet more complete disregard of what is asked. The ‘genuine devotee’ must accept that Sathya Sai Baba is God Almighty himself walking on two (intensely super-magnetic) fabulously holy feet etc., and so has to give up all chance of ever understanding anything else about him than what Sathya Sai Baba determines.
