Sai Baba promises – part 2

Posted by robertpriddy on July 1, 2009

PKRYSTALAnother example of Sathya Sai Baba’s failed promises: The constantly ill and suffering elderly lady and Sai VIP for decades, Mrs. Phyllis Krystal of the USA is a much favoured author and speaker at Sai workshops and so on. She described her chronic and terrible headaches, which Sathya Sai Baba diagnosed as due to five different kinds of headache (see ‘The Ultimate Experience’- publ. Samuel Weiser Inc.). She went through some kind of intensification of her symptoms while with Sathya Sai Baba, which she interpreted as being a part of the treatment in removing one or more of these several headaches. She was a speaker at the Sathya Sai Hamburg Conference in 1992 and was asked point blank from the audience whether Sathya Sai Baba had now cured her of all her headaches. She hesitated for some time, and eventually said that he had.

However, a year or more later I was in London talking to Lucas Ralli, Central Coordinator for UK & Ireland until unceremoniously kicked out by International SSO Charman Indulal Shah. He was a close friend of Mrs. Krystal, who stayed with him and his wife sometime during a UK visit. He came to mention that she was in constant need of pain killers for her headaches and I was taken aback. So I asked if she had not been cured, but he confirmed that she still suffered greatly from this. This incident typifies the kind of thinking one meets among Sai devotees… unwillingness to admit doubts – or tell te truth – to oneself or others so as not to publicly embarrass the guru (or fall out of favour with him!). Later, Mrs. Krystal’s house was shattered by the Californian earthquake in the 90s, making her homeless, along with her deceased husband’s lifelong collection of crystal glass reportedly worth much more than $1 million. As she describes in detail in her book ‘The Ultimate Experience’, Sathya Sai Baba had himself told her to move to that house, after she had prayed constantly for a very long time and repeatedly asked him whether she could move house! Eventually he had given the go-ahead verbally to her.

Suffering as a test of faith to grow upon? Devotees, in their great wisdom, regard such things as a test, or a lesson or even a boon from Sathya Sai Baba! He has said such sufferings help to detach one from worldly things and prepare for the final detachment! This reasoning, when taken to its conclusion means it is a boon when anything is destroyed, relatives are lost etc., because it prepares one for death! At worst it prepares one for reincarnation in a new body, at best ones removal from the cycle of life. No devotee has the slightest idea of what awaits those who attain this, but they all imagine it to be the be all and end all of existence. Living so as to stop living as much as possible here and now, and in the hereafter too… that is the whole point of faith if Sai Baba! It is like gambling with eyes closed. See also…
