Sai Baba on judging gurus’ genuineness

Posted by robertpriddy on September 29, 2011

“The only test anyone can apply to a guru, of whatever kind, is whether his words are in harmony with his deeds. Gurus are to be judged by how words are put in practice.” (Sathya Sai Baba) Conversations… p. 18 new

Sathya Sai Baba repeatedly gave a ‘guarantee’ of liberation from the wheel of life (i.e. no more rebirths or ‘Moksha’) to all who saw a lingam emerge from his mouth at Shivarathri (most recently at Shivarathri 1999 when the scandals about his sex abuses broke and he had to turn the declining visitor numbers around  (see scans of his discourse excerpts and explanations here). His close US follower, Dr. John Hislop saw the lingam emerge on several occasions. When Hislop suggested it could be a boon to be reborn with Prema Sai, Sai Baba had contradicted him (in his usual definitive manner) to say it is definitely not so! (See (Conversations with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Sathya Sai Baba by Dr. John Hislop. 1996 revised extended edition, p. 227) 
Nonetheless, two other close servitors who also often saw the lingam emerge, Prof. N. Kasturi and his closest attendant Swami Karunyananda (both now deceased), were both told they would be with Prema Sai in their next incarnations (and can you believe that?). But a boon is most certainly not how Baba has often and forcefully described rebirth … which he holds to be the greatest tragedy that can befall anyone, to have to emerge from the womb in painful ignorance of our nature and so to cry ‘Koham? (‘Who am I?)! So much for that guru’s promises.

The above is one of countless false promises and prophesies made by Sathya Sai Baba, which have been documented from his own words and reported actions most thoroughly by dissident ex-followers. To see a fair amount of them, go to PREDICTIONS and PROMISES MADE BY SATHYA SAI BABA .

The following is another example of how Sathya Sai Baba sets the rumour mill grinding without having to stand forth openly himself:- “Wilma Bronkey was the featured presenter at the South Central Regional Conference held in Texas, 1999. One of her talks centered on the fact that Sathya Sai Baba had told a group of them in an interview the following basic story: The WHOLE world would be at peace within two years–a definite noticeable condition on the planet! I personally heard this talk and saw James Redmond tape her talk. It lasted over half an hour in length. This talk was heard by many hundreds of devotees. What a legacy of broken promises!”
Dennis J. Hanisch (this was his message 31953 on – removed along with thousands of early postings by Yahoo apparently for reasons of webspace).
Yet another example: broken promise to young man to make him his airline pilot

One Response to “Sai Baba on judging gurus’ genuineness”

  1. I am not in the habit of quoting from the bible at all, Robert, but don’t you think this saying of Jesus seems to fit Sathya Sai Baba’s own bill to the tee? Like many devotees I had my share of broken promises too, by the way.

    ‘By their fruits you shall know them. Do men get grapes from thorns or figs from thistles?’


    I agree heartily! The much-flaunted fruits of Sathya Sai Baba’s “social service” (done by others) are all tainted: the colleges donated for him were like prisons for those who were sexually abused by him, the hospitals are private and secretive about who reeives treatment and who does not – masquerading as social service for the poor, when devotees from abroad and other well-to-do Indians get the benefits. The Rayalaseem water project was a colossal failure – not least because the “omniscience” of SB let it down as the water table fell drastically after it was begun, which cause it to underproduce in most villages… and so on.
