Sathya Sai Baba Deceptions Exposed

Exposing major deceits by guru Sathya Sai Baba in India, incl. murders cover-up & widely alleged sexual abuse

Sai Baba rubbished, then embraced computers

When the computer revolution was well underway in the 1980s, Sathya Sai Baba  questioned their usefulness in the way of one who looks back to the supposedly great non-technological past of ancient India. Despite pretending he knows every detail about everyone and everything from the most distant past to the future, he did not recognise that computers would not make people abjectly dependent on machines, but that they would use them to increase their own autonomy, communication and for great labour-saving and much more.

Funny that Sai Saba later had to change his tune and make his students “abjectly dependent on the machine”
In 1980, Sai Baba was in two minds about computers…The rapid deterioration of intellect Sai Baba expected from computer use is rather achieved far more effectively by his own indoctrination of his followers… to consider the mind as a trickster, the intellect as unreliable and instead to rely on prayer, meditation and make great efforts to ‘kill the mind altogether’. The computer enhances human skills in writing, graphics, and all forms of scientific research.
That “Some students committed suicide” due to distress caused by computer error implies a simplistic false generalization. The particular students can have taken their own lives for a complex of factors. This connection was not seen elsewhere in India either. The National Exams at that time did not need to be put on computers to make them a disaster… the fraud practiced was on such a scale that universities around the advanced countries of the world are all highly skeptical of students producing their results as part of admittance attempts.
Sai-computer1 Here one sees that when Dr. John Hislop dares to put a challenging question, he had to admit that computers could be used in “a constructive and beneficial way”, but then added that the results only “seemed” to be good, but were not “in the long run”.
Sai Baba takes over two hundred words to explain a simple concept which in short is that a computer cannot deliver anything but what is put into it. Wrong again! Computers calculate faster and more reliably than any human brain can… put in dozens of variables and complex software and results can surpass hundreds of people working hundreds of hours can figure out… and without human error. The view that “crores of rupees are being wasted on computers” clashes with the completely undeniable subsequent enormous profits India has made precisely from the using computers! His comparison between computers and flour grinders illustrates his ignorance all too well. No doubt he prefers that the coolies who work for him building his ashrams for a pittance should – for example – continue to sift sand by letting handfuls fall to be spread by the wind so as to spread the grains to make a small heap of fine sand for quality mortar.Sathya Sai Baba is further patently unaware of the increased predictive accuracy possible with computers, such as the average chances of the time of death. He suggests that the time of death can be found by faith in the “natural human brain“… having already made diverse predictions as to his own death, ranging from age 93 to age 96 and even possibly at some other time!

The scientist puts into the computer what he knows” And that is one vast amount more than Sathya Sai Baba shows he knows.

By 1988, it was a completely different story. Sathya Sai Baba now appears as a fan of computers, inaugurating the Prashanthi computer centre and viewing each computer with keen interest. Clearly this self-proclaimed all-knowing deity did not know about computers and had to be shown it all. His former skepticism was forgotten.

In the same report, not that the totally false claim is made that “The Institute was unique among universities in offering completely free education at all levels”. My education was completely free in the 1960s in Norway, and the same is the case today – also throughout Northern Europe. Only in recent years have British universities charged for university courses (not least due to their popularity among foreign students from the entire planet, which put too big a strain on the heavily subsidised system where formerly stipends were provided to all who qualified.


In 2001, Sai Baba angrily denounced the allegations made internationally by more than a dozen independent sources about his sexual practices – and he proclaimed, ‘I am not on the Internet’ (despite his claimed Omnipresence). Nonetheless, his ashram, the Sathya Sai Central Trust and many national branches of the Sathya Sai Organization advertise on the Internet. We find the Sathya Sai Organization very active with his connivance at and in other media such as the radio, e.g. a 24-hour Digital Radio Broadcasting Station on Bhagawan’s 76th Birthday — 23 Nov. 2001 in Asia, a service available through Worldspace ASIA’s STAR WEST, the Sathya Sai Organization official web site informs us. Many National and other Sathya Sai Organization centres have their own web pages.

An on-line encyclopedia states: “Sathya Sai Baba says that his followers should not use the internet but focus instead on the innernet (i.e., follow spiritual practices).”

The obvious reason for this is that the revelations of sexual abuse testimonies and murder cover-up in Sathya Sai Baba’s private apartments is easily found on many Internet sites.
