Sathya Sai Baba and the unpalatable truth

Posted by robertpriddy on September 21, 2011

“Speak truth, speak pleasantly and do not speak unpalatable truth” (Sanathana Sarathi October 2003, p. 296).

Almost every statement of any import will be “unpalatable” to someone on the planet, so this extremely vague advice – if religiously followed (as Sai devotees are required to so) would lead to hardly anyone telling anything. Many Sai Baba devotees try hard to follow this dictum, even to the extent that they do not refer to Sai Baba’s death on Wikipedia. Death as applied to him is clearly “unpalatable” to them. This is defended by certain Wikipedia administrators, for example  the very biased pro-guru administrator Rumiton who energetically finds niggling arguments to exclude as much of the “unpalatable truth” as he can get away with – like rejecting statement of the obvious fact that Sai Baba was a “controversial figure“! Which he overwhelmingly was – see here).

Sai Baba claimed that his every word about the future must necessarily come true. However, this has been shown to be completely wrong in dozens of instances. One small example, according to a 1984 book by very close devotees, Sathya Sai Baba said that “In this body I will not become old or infirm as in my old body.”[27]  Balu, Shakuntala (1981. Living Divinity. London: Sawbridge, pp. 40. ISBN 0907555004).That he became old and infirm is a known fact -firstly, he suffered numerous bone breakages (his arm, not least) and – reported by various media in India, became garbled in his speech. He had lost the sight in one eye, suffered twice from a broken hip, which became a chronic illness after the second time, consigning him to a wheelchair permanently. His mental and physical degeneration was seen most vividly on his last birthday celebration (at which he cried in public). That was 5 months before his death following upon malnutrition, huge weight loss and massive organ failures. All this is “unpalatable” for Wikipedia’s Wackpedian administrator. There is a long entry refuting the critics of Sai Baba, but the critics are represented only briefly by a very watered-down few points which are purposely not properly documented by links (removed by Sai devotees). This ought to be put right by those who are properly informed and know how to edit Wikipedia pages!

Also highly unpalatable to followers in denial is the following must read blog: Sathya Sai Baba Made Huge Science and History Mistakes
