Sathya Sai Baba’s prediction about Vivekananda’s rebirth proven false

Posted by robertpriddy on June 1, 2011

In a most engaging and revelatory three-part blog series, Barry Pittard – former teacher at Sathya Sai Baba’s Whitefield College near Bangalore – recounts all the facts concerning how Sathya Sai Baba’s Death Falsifies His Vivekananda ‘Reincarnation’ Claim. Pittard met the young man in question in Colombo, Sri Lanka, in 1998, which meeting left no doubt that Sai Baba’s declaration was a most unwelcome event in his life, one he rejected completely.

In his attempt to install himself as the Incarnate Godhead, Sathya Sai Baba spread a vast network of rumours and made more excessive claims of divinity than anyone has made in recorded history. Many of the stories he repeatedly embroidered try to represent him as a figure of mythical proportions, relying very much on claims about his role in the lives of divine figures in religious scripture and mythology.

One such invention aimed to appeal to the large Hindu community and diaspora in the West, was his telling a young Sri Lankan man that he was the reincarnation of the famous Hindu monk Swami Vivekananda (1863-1902), who had impressed the West at the Parliament of Religions, Chicago, in 1893. In an interview – urging secrecy – but knowing full well that such a sensational piece of news would spread like wildfire among his followers and become part of the accepted history, Sathya Sai Baba predicted that this young man would come to aid him in his mission in 2021… but Sai Baba is dead as of April 2011!

Posted by robertpriddy on June 1, 2011
