Comments on quotations taken from Sathya Sai Baba’s Discourse on Guru Purnima 17th July, 2002 (translation of the premsai website’s version ( (EN).htm)

As Jorge Reyesvera has remarked about Sai Baba“…he used to ridicule devotees frequently. I remember once that one student friend of mine told me how SSB was in a bus and some devotees outside were saying loudly, “Sai Baba, Sai Baba…”, and his reply was “Donkeys, donkeys…” But with discourses like this one he also shows how much of a donkey he is.“
Because Sai Baba imagined (or pretended) he was all-knowing, the primitive secondary-school village education which he gave up, shines through the adult bombast. This sheer drivel is supposedly ‘Saience’, i.e.  what Sai Baba called his higher spiritual science!

Sathya Sai Baba statements in brown text, Reyesvera’s comments in royal blue:-

“There is Divinity in every atom. Another name for the atom is God. From the time he was born until he died, Kaanaada contemplated on the atom saying, “Paramanu, paramanu, paramanu (meaning, ‘the smallest particle’).” This world could not be seen if the atom didn’t exist.”
Comment: The atom is not the smallest particle by far.

“Earlier there was no form at all in the universe.”
Comment: The universe came into existence simultaneously with space-time. Before the Big Bang, it does not make sense to speak about time. Space-time as we understand it is the same thing.

“There was no sun or moon, no sky or earth and no stars — nothing at all. All was pitch darkness. However, atoms came very densely together. Due to them coming together, there was intense heat generated.”
Comment: Physics has demonstrated that in the hypothetical environment of the big bang at the very beginning it was impossible for atoms to be formed. It does not matter how close atoms are, heat is not generated. In the nuclei of the atoms of some elements there is potential energy that can be released

“… all of these densely combined atoms broke apart and spread everywhere. The sound of that breaking is Pranava, Omkara, which is the Primordial sound. This only is the original and first sound. This Pranava is present everywhere. What did this Pranava arise from? It began from atoms. There is nothing else except atoms.”
Comment: There are many more things than atoms, like neutrinos (some scientists think that they account for the majority of the mass of the universe), energy (photons, X rays, gamma rays, microwave radiation, light, etc), loose particles (electrons, protons, muons, etc), space-time, etc.

“What is the way to attain it? Kaanaada investigated into that subject. Finally he realised that, “It is only one sound. It is the first sound.”
Comment: There are many more things than atoms, like neutrinos (some scientists think that they Again, sound needs a vehicle to propagate. Scientific evidence shows with a high degree of likelihood that some microwave radiation is a residue of the Big Bang.

“He taught such a truth to the world. Only after the sound of Omkar began, the sun, moon, earth, sky and stars all arose.”
Comment: Stars are forming all the time, the Sun is a second generation star. There is strong evidence also that many stars have planets revolving them. That does not have anything to see with sound.

“The root cause for this whole Creation is only the atom. So, every human being is the combination of atoms. A body without atoms and a form without atoms cannot be seen. Man is never trying to recognize such a nature of the atom.”
Comment: What we see are not the atoms but the light (photons) that comes from them.

“How can atomic power be recognized? The eyes cannot see it. Where is it? It is in the food that is eaten. It is in the sights that are seen. It is in the words that you speak. It is in the steps that are walked. It is present everywhere. Walking on that, eating that, drinking that, experiencing that – yet that is being forgotten by men of today.”
Comment: Atomic power was seen in the Second World War.

“Till today no one has understood the sacred power of the atom. People think that the atom is only a phenomenon without a life force. The power of life that created this entire world is also in the atom. Hence, God is the embodiment of the microcosm and the macrocosm. Therefore, every human being should try to recognize the secret of the world and of the creation of man, and recognize what is his duty and act accordingly.”
Comment: What does the understanding of the atom have to do with recognisation of one’s duty?

“What man should recognize is the form of the atom. If the atom is understood, man will be one who understands everything. The atom only is God. That only is true humanness. That only is the life principle. The life principle within the atom is moving about throughout the world.”
Comment: Then according to this statement, some scientists are totally illumined.

“However, how should one take hold of it? The process of the microcosm has to be undertaken. This is what Kaanaada said. He said that when this (the process of the microcosm) is followed, it would be possible for us to receive (realise) the principle of Divinity.”
Comment: And just because Kaanada said it, then it is true?

“Look — an atom is going there. We may go around it. If we wait around for it and if we proceed (to follow it) with concentration, it will be caught by us. We may catch hold of any amount of atoms every moment. You just held so many. If they are let loose, they go (spread) wherever you look (all over). The sound of OM and the sound of an atom are as small as the atom. The nature of the mind is also dependent on this.”
Comment: SSB is rather confused between atoms and molecules and solid and fluid states. In perfect vacuum what would happen according to him?

“In the evening when I was giving the Valedictory Address, I didn’t even know what I was saying.”
Comment: How come that the powerful SSB did not know what he was saying?? (Editor’s note. One can believe THAT at least)

“However, I went inside. I lay down. The prayers of all the devotees came in big clusters. (Applause) “Swami,.. Selfishness cannot be seen in Me from My toenail to the tips of My hair. (Applause) Therefore, there is (I have) the courage and authority to say, “I and you are One.”
Comment: And what about the atom??

“Therefore, the power of the atom is the same in every human being. This atomic power should also be understood to some extent. From our ancient times, we continue worshipping and meditating on a form and we are living life with it. Those also have arisen out of atoms… Kaanaada did very great sadhana. Finally he said, “There is nothing else at all. I came from the atom. I should merge again in the atom.” This means that, as he didn’t have body attachment; he merged in the atom.”
Comment: How can one merge in the atom??

“… just don’t forget the nature of the atom. Everything is in the atom. Hence, we should feel that the nature of the atom is within oneself. Our body is (contains) the atom. Mind is atom. Intellect is atom. Chittha is atom. Antahkarana is atom. All are completely atoms. That which is full of atoms is Divinity…” “… there is death for the physical body of man, but the mind has no death. There is no death for the mind at all. Though the man (his body) dies, the feelings that the person felt are imprinted on the mind. The tendencies of so many births and the tendencies from so many actions are printed on this mind.”
Comment: The mind is beyond matter so how come that it is formed of atoms, which kind? How come that the mind has atoms and the atoms give life?

“It is not possible to say that this mind is ‘like this or that’. Therefore, we should not feel that the mind will die along with this life (of the physical body). No matter how many births there are, the mind is God. This mind contains atoms. We should not feel that the nature of the mind, which contains atoms, dies.”
Comment: But the body that really has atoms dies!

“Truly, what does Guru Purnima mean? It shows the path, the Divine path, to us. ‘Purnima’ means ‘the sacred radiance of the full moon’. What is the full moon? It is the completely full nature of the mind. The completely full nature of the mind, without any spots at all, is observed as the full moon. When the mind has any spot, it is darkness; it won’t give bliss.”
Comment: The moon has many spots, the sun has many spots, so to what does he refer?

“Truly, who are you? You only are God! (Applause) He is the form of an atom. First and foremost, recognize that Truth. … Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakasipu also were ones of very great capabilities. They were great scientists. Hiranyakasipu not only went to the moon; he also went to the sun. Not only the sun, he also reached the stars. When he went to star Dhruva and touched it, the earth spun. With that he suffered. Though he was such a great scientist, things should be done only as much as is needed; but if it is in excess, a very big danger will happen.”
Comment: How come that we have not get any of their legacies? And the temperature at a Star surface is very hot (in our Sun’s should be at least 6000 degrees Centigrade!

“Numerous people, unable to bear their sufferings, take their own life. People think, “It is only due to the mind that there is so much suffering, isn’t it so? I will kill this mind.” However, this is a big sin. You are not killing the mind. You feel that your Divinity is like that. We should not have any resolve of suicide. Atma is God. God is Atma. Prahlada said, ‘Don’t have the doubt that, ‘He is in this and not in that’.”
Comment: When SSB gives diamonds (fake or one in a blue moon maybe real) he usually says, “Die mind”

“Forget the feelings towards worldly objects (materialistic tendencies). All of these are worldly.”
Comment: But they are also full of atoms!

Want more entertainment? Plenty available from Sai Baba blather box:
SAI’S MASSIVE IGNORANCE OF PHYSICS AND THE ATOM EXPOSEDNot even high school level explanations!
SAI BABA’S TOUTED ‘SAIENCE’ – SHEER CONFUSION More fantastic rubbish on one but ignorami can credit
SAI BABA’S ‘DIVINE COSMIC IGNORANCE’ OF ASTRONOMY The supposedly auspicious Mahashivaratri discourse of 2001 is here shown to be a hodge-podge of scriptural misconceptions and scientific howlers.
SAI BABA CLAIMS TO BE MAGNETIC, THINGS STICK TO HIS HANDS AND FEET!He explained his inability to walk properly by saying the earth is so attracted to him he can hardly move his feet – but he actually was suffering a serious hip-joint failure!
SAI ON MAGNETISM A tour de force of exhibited ignorance of science
