Sathya Sai Baba Deceptions Exposed

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

The truth about Sai Baba´s hoarding of goods

Posted by robertpriddy on July 24, 2011

All the rationalizations about Sathya Sai Baba having never accepted gifts, never kept anything for himself, always only giving everything to the needy are totally exploded by the facts that have emerged in recent weeks. The chocolates and dried fruits found which have passed their expiry date must therefore have been stored by him for a very long time, with no thought whatever of giving anything to anyone… not even the penniless and deformed beggars who always throng the entrances to his ashrams! Not to mention the countless expensive items of a kind he never is known to have given away to anyone… when he distributes sarees to lady devotees, they were far from being of the best quality. Likewise the “diamonds” he claimed to give; not one has ever been proven to be a genuine diamond, but many have been proven to be synthetic stones bought very cheaply. 

The perfumed avatar! That Sai Baba is claimed to have perfumed himself regularly so as to ´smell good´ when he walked among the crowds or gave interviews to dignitaries etc. is not an unlikely story, considering the stock of latest and rarest perfumes found among his stockpile. One perfume above all has been used by Sai Baba, the essence of  tea rose. This is a seldom encountered but extremely fragrant and wonderful perfume which is identical to that of the so-called amrit (or “divine nectar”) that Sai Baba used to produce as a sugared liquid. Amrit is easy to manufacture, so it is strange that so few gurus have discovered how it attracts and deludes devotees as being a divine blessing that endows people with spiritual qualities etc. See more about the Sai Baba amrit deception here.

Nectar of the Gods? Or tea rose essence & sugar water?

Five thousand wristwatches? It has long been known that Sai Baba pretended to materialize wrist watches for people in interviews because batches donated to him were recognised by the donors!

Dr. Erlendur Haraldsson in his letter dated 21-10-1988 said that the story is only a hearsay and there seem to be many editions of it and one cannot use these unverified second-hand stories as argument for anything until they have been verified. Eventually, Abraham T. Kovoor contacted the makers and Mr. Shoji Hattori, president of K. Hattori & Co. Ltd., the manufacturers of Seiko watches wrote back denying the claim made about Sai Baba – namely, that “a divine-looking person with bushy hair walked into the office one day, opened the safe and walked away with the watch” (full account of the events here)

One Response to “The truth about Sai Baba´s hoarding of goods”


    That is my ‘thought for the day’, which comes to mind when reading the above. Sadly the latter instead of the former part of this, in itself rather typifying, tedious and predictable play of words, for which Sai Baba was famous during his lifetime, proves to apply to himself more so than to any other man I have ever known: getting as much as he could for his own gratification, whilst forgetting everyone around him!

    Mind you: given his terribly poor command of the English language, to which I myself can bear witness, I am not even sure he himself came up with these billboardlike catchphrases. I would not be surprised if the next thing we hear is him having made use of a couple of ghostwriters…

    All joking aside, as a seasoned psychotherapist I don’t believe in the power of forgiveness per se. True forgiving, I have come to see, is highly unlikely, UNLESS the truth is faced first by the victim(s), even sometimes made public if the circumstances demand so. In the case of Sathya Sai Baba, there can be no real healing without devotees, present and former, coming clean with themselves, their pain, the ugly facts, whereas the perpetrators, those who sided with Sai Baba, who enabled him to do what he did for so long or were co-conspiritors and fellow abusers, show true remorse and are put to justice, if at all possible.

    At this juncture I call upon the silent majority of devotees, again present AND former, not to remain silent any longer! Aid people like Robert Priddy and Barry Pittard, and by doing so help yourself and all those who have no voice.
    Any small gesture will do: sign the petition calling for a thorough investigation of swami and his organisation, read, inform yourself, give your time or name, come forth with some piece of evidence of wrongdoing, help and give evidence that can speed up the pending lawsuits, talk, anything but prolonging the shattering silence that otherwise threatens to keep us away from any semblance of truth. There is still time, but not forever. If too many of us go on holding our tongues, chances are we end up with a conundrum bigger than the question what happened to Kennedy’s brain…
