Sathya Sai Baba News – Funeral problems

Posted by robertpriddy on April 26, 2011

The funeral ceremony caused massive disturbances of one kind and another. Due to the Indian authorities’ total disregard of the well-being of the populace, which was demonstrated by their usual ultra-tight security arrangement for VVIPs, those in Puttaparthi were cynically left without food or drink!
Here is the report from The Times of India, Apl 26:-

“…confusion pervades beyond the gates of the Central Trust. While thousands of devotees keep pouring into Puttaparthi to wait in queues stretching up to 2-3 kms for that last glimpse, there appears to be little co-ordination between the Central Trust and the cops on how to handle the surge. “All they are interested are VVIPs and VIPs. We commoners are left to fend for ourselves,” said Kutumba Rao who has come from Rajahmundry. It was the same story for a majority of over one lakh devotees who had reached Puttaparthi by Monday evening.
The consideration for VIP security hasn’t helped matters: Even milk vans have not been allowed to enter the town since Sunday night. Hotels, canteens, eateries, shops and other business establishments have also been shut. “We are helpless. The devotees are thirsty and hungry but we cannot serve them as everything is shut. There is no milk to serve even tea,” said L Rajeev, a hotel manager.
A senior police officer said: “What can we do. VVIP bandobast is mandatory. All top functionaries are coming. So, many roads have been closed.” Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi are expected on Tuesday. Many other chief ministers are also expected.

Cops blame Trust for chaos at Puttaparthi: With VIPs queuing up to pay respects to Sai Baba, thousands of ordinary devotees and locals of the town have been left to fend for themselves with the extremely tight bandobast leaving them without essential commodities like food, water and a roof over their heads for an overnight stay.
The cops were also left clueless on how to manage the surge of devotees at the Sai Kulwant Hall. They blamed the Trust members for the mess. “We along with the district collector had told the Trust members to organise the darshan at the Hill View stadium. But they did not heed to our request. The stadium has a capacity of 50,000 and in his lifetime all big events, including his birthday, were celebrated there. Sai Kulwant Hall has limited capacity and has no proper entry and exit routes. Hence, huge lines spill on to the road. And since the roads are narrow, we had to close the shops.” Trust sources, however, said that it wasn’t practical to keep the body in an open stadium in this heat.”

Meanwhile, the struggle for predominance over the multi-billion dollar fortune left behind by the self-professed ‘penniless’ Sathya Sai Baba who owned no property (but for a literal township and more) and over for what it will be used in future, is not in the public eye – bad taste while the burial is progressing. The strongest apparent contender namely Satyajit (a Tamil) is keeping a low profile away from the throngs and is under police protection.

ECONOMIC TIMES – IANS, Apr 25, 2011, 02.53pm IST HYDERABAD: “The Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust will meet to take some key decisions after Sathya Sai Baba’s last rites Wednesday, with his death leaving a big question mark on the future of his massive spiritual empire estimated to be worth Rs.40,000 crore. With Sathya Sai Baba passing away Sunday, the trust will decide on how to carry forward its activities and who should lead it as Baba has apparently not named a successor.”

The Magic Silver Box: On top of all the excitement, it is hilarious that no less a figure than the Solicitor General of India stands forth to vouchsafe to India his Baba dream… one which proved again that Baba dreams are products of one’s own mind and have not truth in them at all. The Times of India takes up the story…
“Sunday night, Sathya Sai Baba appeared in the dream of solicitor general of India Gopal Subramaniam and told him to search his bedroom in the residential Yajur Mandir complex. “There is a silver box. Open it and you will find detailed instructions on how to run the Sai Central Trust, ” Subramanian claimed the Baba told him in the dream. The first thing that Subramaniam did on Monday morning was to tell the Trust members about the dream. The cops were summoned to open the residential complex which had been sealed since last week after allegations that “valuables” from being stolen from there. A team led by DIG Charu Sinha entered the Baba’s spartan bedroom but found nothing. “There was a bed, a chair and a medicine chest. But there was no silver box or any documents or will of the Baba,” a cop told TOI.”

Swami Nityananda salutes Sathya Sai Baba - two of a kind


SEX ABUSE CHARGED NITYANANDA
, WORSHIPS A ‘ROLE MODEL’!

There were protests from many devotees of Sathya Sai Baba when the news came out that Swami Nityananda of sex abuse fame was said to be coming to the funeral. But to no avail. What does this tell us about India? Nityananda was allowed to walk alone to do his pranams to the coffin contents, the same way as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Sonia Gandhi did at the same ceremony. What does this tell about India? Nowhere else could this be allowed! Nithyananda told the CBI “I am not a man” and gave preposterous answers to some of the questions, as one might expect by someone caught red-handed on video! Letting him strut his stuff prominently before the TV and massed crowds of VVIPs and some rich devotees who all want to distance themselves from even a stray thought about sexual abuse was an affront to all devotees and must have been uncomfortable for the heads of State! Is this not a telling sign about morality in Indian ‘spiritual circles’.

Sai Baba allegedly drugged by his boyfriend Satyajit

Posted by robertpriddy on April 26, 2011

The can of worms is opening further and disgusting evidence is crawling out! Read further to learn what could never be hidden for ever! As has been evident to independently minded observers for a long time, as I have repeatedly pointed out for several years in these blogs, Sai Baba has been degenerating since soon after his botched hip-joint replacement in 2003. It became almost impossible not to notice – at least since the 85th birthday – that Sathya Sai Baba appeared almost like a wooden idol, and he looked as if he was sedated then. Never a smile crossed his face – he who claimed he always kept a smiling face and berated those with ‘castor oil’ faces’! That he broke down and cried in public on his birthday (see brief video) – an act he has always called weakness – rather underlined the point that he was in depression rather than anything approaching his former self. Now some of the facts of the matter are already emerging, and it is NOT a pretty story. His close boyfriend and roommate Satyajit allegedly administered an unknown number of sleeping pills and sedatives to him over a long period, some have said six months, and he was reportedly in full control of Sai Baba, his food and anyone who could get near to him. Apparently, the love Sai Baba practised had its own special prison! Here is episode one:

Late Satya Sai Baba’s trusted follower of 15 years, Yatish Salian alias Satyajit has been sidelined by the 8 members Central Trust:
Is Satyajit Salian another sexual abuser, and with police protection?
As Sai Baba’s closest boyfriend and roommate since his early years (he is now 33 years old), it is almost undeniable to non-worshipping observers, that he must himself have been sexually abused since childhood, one may wonder by whom? One should ask, why would Sathya Sai Baba have a young boy attending on him day in and day out? It takes little perspicacity to realize, on the background of the many reports, including signed testimonies and affidavits, that Sathya Sai Baba was a major sexual abuser. It has long been reported by ex-students that the rector of the Sai school in Puttparti, Ms. Munni Kaul (known as ‘Munni Auntie’) was herself a sexual abuser of children and that she selected suitable boys for Sathya Sai Baba’s use from the age of six at least! I was also personally informed of this in 1996 by the friend of parents of a young boy who was abused by her – Mr. V. Ramnath of the IAS (see here). At that time I managed to put it down to ‘vicious rumour’, but that was when I was still convinced Sai Baba was somehow divine and before the dam of allegations broke and I contacted many of those involved, three of whom I knew well already (though they had not then come to terms with the abuse and did not tell me).

Satyajit, already in charge of the funeral and all involved (including the Prime Minister, the President and countless other ‘dignitaries’ who must face the indignity and loss of face which will accrue to them of being the guests of yet another reported sexual abuser!). With his lawyers, Satyajit will present Sathya Sai Baba’s last will and testament, which he claims leaves the entire Sathya Sai Central Trust responsibilities to him! What can it mean that “Satyajit is demanding his full share in the trust“? Does he expects a financial windfall out of the donated money? In any case, embezzlement within the clandestine unaccountable trust is clearly a simple matter, as those once dismissed from the board for that by Sai Baba discovered.  Further, the authorities have reportedly already agreed that he should take over the Sai ashrams – together with Sai Baba’s brothers’ son! Imagine it, who will want to visit then? Answer: there are enough deceived and deluded persons who have invested everything of themselves in Sathya Sai Baba to fill the Poornachandra Hall many times over. Some people never can learn, it is too late and too crushingly disastrous to their ‘well-being’.

Devotees may indeed wonder how their omnipotent Lord and God Creator of the Universe could get into such a terrible fix, including drug dependency. They will surely find some extreme rationalization as, once a person is deeply indoctrinated and totally committed to the idea that they are among the blessed chosen ones and are garnering great spiritual benefits and eternal boons (which they will get only after they are themselves dead and in the imagined but unimaginable beyond). Such as the contorted reasoning of a certain very deluded and bitter former President of the Manhattan Centre, New York, one Richard Margolin, has ‘vouchsafed’ to me (in a wordpress comment) to explain that Sathya Sai Baba actually WAS 96 years old and died as he said he would! Tell that to the countless media and others who insist he died aged 84 or 85! (Unfortunately for Margolin, Sai Baba said in 1960 he would live for 59 more years and again in 1961 he would live for 58 more years. Work that one out yourselves!).

The Economic Times reports Threat to life of Sai Baba’s caregiver & personal doctor (26 Apl) HYDERABAD:
“With intelligence reports hinting that there was threat to the life of Sathya Sai Baba’s caregiver Satyajit and personal doctor Dr Aiyar, the state government on Monday advised both of them to make fewer public appearance for some time.  As the report also cautioned that certain elements were trying to eliminate some persons who were close to the Baba, the government beefed up security for all the trust members. Satyajit is a front runner for the top post in the Sathya Sai Central Trust with majority of its members openly expressing their preference for him.  Dr Aiyar was criticised by many devotees for not maintaining any medical records of Sai Baba, some of them, even made threat calls to him while Baba was in hospital. This was revealed by Prasanthi Nilayam sources.”

The Financial Express tells India what ex.devotees – and most present devotees – have always known, that the entire ashram system is most strongly weighted in favour of the well.to.do, the well-known and people who have any kind of qualifications which might enhance Sai Baba’s name (though not one top scientist or Nobel Prize winner ever went there! Not poor, rich devotees get Sathya Sai Baba special treatment

Now the Sai Baba gravy train is soon to ‘grind to a halt’ and the business and property values will come crashing down. Read this:-The economy of Puttaparthi after Baba

Sathya Sai Super Speciality Hospital jinxed?

Posted by robertpriddy on April 26, 2011

More bizarre goings-on – Sathya Sai Baba family members are believers in the ancient Indian ‘aesthetic art’ of Vaastu Shastra, which is very like the Chinese Feng-shui (better known in the West). Both vaasta and feng-shui  involve planning how buildings—often spiritually significant structures such as tombs, but also dwellings and other structures— are to be arranged according to their esoteric rules as to what is auspicious or inauspicious. It is held that an auspicious siting and disposition of a building creates the best livable and spiritual’ atmosphere. Otherwise, things can go very wrong, as Sai Baba relative believe occurred with Sai Baba’s hospitalization!  Of course, this is regarded as mere fancy and/or sheer superstiton by most world architects and empirical scientists.

It is no wonder that the family believe in such matters, for Sathya Sai Baba believed fully in black magic… which is still the bane of various backward areas in rural India like Jharkand and Ranchi which have been dubbed the ‘witch-killing hub of India’. Sai Baba carried out exorcism extensively in his younger days, relentlessly beating the demons out of ‘possessed’ persons and even children. See Sai Baba’s documented belief in black magic, witchcraft and dangerous superstitions

Sathya Sai promotes his hospitals as ‘his’. Speaking of 12,000 heart operations performed at the Puttaparthi hospital, he boasts, “I leave it to your imagination to appreciate who is responsible for saving so many lives.” (p. 262) Could Sai Baba mean the donors, the doctors, all the selfless hospital workers? He prefers you imagine that this could not happen unless he somehow does it all! If he is saying it is all due to his ‘miraculous aid’, then why does he bother with the hospitals? I am free to “imagine” that the actual health workers and other staff who work voluntarily or for a very small remuneration are those who are actually responsible for saving the lives that are presumably saved. It was the US multi-millionaire Isaac Tigrett who donated the entire first Puttaparthi ‘super-speciality hospital’ plus all its equipment. He made his money with the Hard Rock Cafe chain [which always served meat and alcohol under the Sai slogan “Love all, Serve all”!]. These latter were forbidden by vegetarian Sathya Sai Baba, but he was happy to accept the proceeds, of which a large proportion was pocketed by officials in his ashram and/or Trust Fund, according to the testimony of a friend of his, David Bailey. The exchange rate was around Rupees 30.- to the US $ in 1991, which would make the sum about $33 million. However, Tigrett told Bailey he gave $49 million, but only $34 million went to the hospital!

In the years since it began, the Puttaparthi SS hospital appeared it was virtually deserted seen from outside. Armed armed military guards stand at the gate and check everyone. However, other health facilities in India – especially free ones – are constantly thronged by people seeking treatment. Sathya Sai Baba’s hospitals are private hospitals, and are not open to public inspection. All its criteria for admission -and admission lists – are kept secret and no breakdown of accounts or reports on decisions or the minutes of any administrative meetings at any level are made available to investigators. It is run in a clandestine manner and is wholly unaccountable to the general public. Devotees come from abroad and get treatment preference, as do Sai VIPs (like his wild hagiographer, Joy Thomas, for example, who was reportedly denied a blood transfusion while suffering from terminal cancer, the result being she was flown back to the USA).

I have no personal desires or selfishness in Me at all. I have not asked anybody for help. Will anybody simply give hundreds of crores for the mere asking? None.” (11/8/2001, SSB)  discourse, see  Sanathana Sarathi, September 2001) Examples of truly vast self-earned donations to charitable works are plenty: they stretch from Robert Owen to Rockefeller, Washington Carver to Guggenheim, Warren Buffet, Getty, Facebook’s Markus Zuckerberg, George Soros, Imran Khan, Bill Gates (a mere $33 billion given by him and Buffet so far)!

SATHYA SAI BABA’S SUPER SPECIALITY HOSPITALS AS TWO-FACED PROJECTS
