Sathya Sai Baba hospitalised for serious illness

Sai Baba devotee doctors’ rose-tinted pronouncements that he is fine and “will soon be giving darsan” etc. remain to be proven. Meanwhile, the official Sai website states that “the more rest that Bhagawan gets, the faster will be his recovery” – Further “In view of this, we earnestly appeal to one and all to continue offering prayers of Love emanating from the Heart.

One must wonder why these prayers are so necessary if rest is all that he needs? Did a doctor advise this? It will seem utterly demented to non-devotees – i.e. the vast majority of all people. What good can prayers to him do when it is now a pacemaker that keeps him going? If prayers were to reach him, could they not possibly disturb his rest? (Note: this is just irony!)

Then it implores in capital letters: “PLEASE DO NOT send e-mails to each other based on all kinds of unfounded rumours, of which there are more than what we need.

One asks, ‘which of the many rumours do they actually need then?’ But why can’t the authorities specify what they regard as ‘rumours’. Do they lack the stomach for that? Do they include the countless fantastic rumours on which all the miracle stories thrive? Or the ‘rumours’ spread in discourses by Sai Baba himself about his own health and countless other false stories about himself (not eating, never sleeping, always weighing exactly 108 Kgs. and hundreds more? The Sai literature does certainly have “more than what we need”

Prayers by devotees to Sathya Sai Baba (as ‘God Almighty Himself’) are evidently of no account where his health is concerned. They prayed for him to heal himself from his botched hip-joint – he had said he would be walking fully within days – but has been wheelchair bound since then.

Sathya Sai Baba was admitted to hospital (Monday, 28 March 2011) “suffering from pneumonia and water has entered his lungs” and “has also developed breathing problems because of severe infection” (see Times of India). This news is not surprising to observers who noticed the reduced condition of Indian’s top religious cult leader. While Sathya Sai ‘officialdom’ pronounced that he is recovering and improving – and that he will be discharged soon, this can be taken with a pinch of salt, because – whenever Sai Baba has suffered injuries or illnesses as he has done often – his minions have always held back with the true facts until it was no longer possible to conceal them. Events will show whether the latest assurances have a real basis. Whatever the case, the fact that the self-proclaimed omnipotent avatar who has claimed he can never suffer from any illness has had a “severe infection” is highly damaging to his image, as well as having had to go to hospital. He has always claimed that he will ever be in perfect health and that illness (‘roga‘) comes only to those who are not true devotees of God. This puts him – qua God Almighty – in a strange light, one would think. But most likely not for his blind believing followers.

Significantly, Sathya Sai Baba’s heart is the problem! reported that SB was hospitalised in Puttaparthi on Monday with a cardiac problem. He “complained of slow heart beat in the afternoon and the trust officials rushed him to Sri Satya Sai institute of higher medical sciences in Prashantigram.” According to a medical bulletin released by hospital director Dr A.N. Safaya, Satya Sai Baba had developed slow heart rate at below 60 beats per minute and giddiness in the afternoon. He mentioned that a permanent pace maker had been implanted and the Baba’s condition was stable as per clinical parameters. Dr Safaya said that there was no need to worry, as the Baba’s condition was stable now. After hearing the news, thousands of devotees in and around Puttaparti started thronging the hospital. The devotees are offering prayers in several temples seeking Baba’s recovery from illness. Apart from local devotees, foreign devotees also thronged the hospital and inquired about Baba’s condition.”

Another on-line report stated “Prasanthi Nilayam ashram sources said Baba fell sick on Monday afternoon and was shifted to the Sri Satyasai super-specialty hospital in Puttaparthi in a special ambulance in the evening. With Sai Baba complaining of slow heart beat and giddiness, medical experts performed a minor surgery and implanted a permanent pacemaker in the night.  Baba, who celebrated his 85th birthday in November last year, was not keeping well since the past six months. He was giving darshan to the devotees by sitting in his motor car and wheelchair. “He was not even giving discourses,” sources said.”

His general state of health and alertness can be seen from recent videos:-

On his 60th birthday, Sathya Sai Baba announced that he would not age physically. Time has caught up with him and that pronouncement by this self-proclaimed omniscience and omnipotent Divine Incarnation has been proven by events to be ignorantly deficient and impotent.

The Three P’s – purity, patience and perseverance? Since his second hip injury in 2003, and several subsequent bone breakages, it seems that his purity, patience and perseverance have flown (but not pomp, pride and paedophilia accusations). It is of note that new photos of Sai Baba ceased to appear on the official website years since… except where his features and expression cannot be seen properly. It is reported that his speech has been degenerating for several years. Considering how much help and hand guidance he has needed for about two years for every simple thing like cutting a cake, the reports on the jungle telegraph that he cannot manage his own basic bodily functions any longer may be true. But his officials would NEVER allow such things to leak out – it would be far too embarrassing and serious for the whole financial and power-broking undertaking.

Sathya Sai Baba’s lies about his health For many years Sai Baba – supposedly invulnerable – lost the vision in one eye, a fact that was never announced until long afterwards when it had leaked out. His second hip injury and replacement surgery was the subject of much anxious covering up by those around him. He neglected medical advice (no less than SIX doctors attended him at that time) and consequently became virtually crippled, having thereafter to use a bath chair, a tarted-up golf buggy and diverse luxurious wheelchair devices. Golden railings were erected here and there so he could hold onto them when standing to give an address or when hobbling along with the aid of his young male attendants. The details and documentations can be examined here.

He suffered a fractured hip in 1988 by slipping on the soap in his bathroom (he told me and others this in the first interview he gave thereafter). He was virtually out of action for several weeks after the fracture. Before 2000 he boasted about his perfect health (see scan of his statement from his official journal)

Already in 2007, Sathya Sai Baba was seen to be failing in that he could not hold the knife unaided to cut his birthday cake. see Too Weak To Cut Birthday Cake

Here we see the sheer megalomania of Sathya Sai Baba in the Malaysian Organizations's posting on Facebook. And devotees now pray to God (i.e. Sai Baba himself in their eyes) to heal Sai Baba! Absurdity piled upon absurdity.
