Sathya Sai Baba in Encyclopedia Britannica
Posted by robertpriddy on June 21, 2013
The Encyclopedia Britannica’s entry on Sathya Sai Baba is up-to-date enough to note his death and accurate enough to recognise the controversy about his sexual abuses and murders in his bedroom, but ends with a vague statement that is not supported by fact. It is simple an unfounded belief (as propagated by some of his most deluded followers) that his crimes have not having deterred his ‘millions of followers’. These crimes have led to a huge loss of followers, especially in the West and other rich and civilised countries, while countless subsequently left him because of his wrongly-predicted death and, above all, the manner in which it happened (massive organ failures but without a legal death certificate or inquest after evident disconnection from life support by his minders on a chosen day, Easter Sunday! Nor did the researcher research his birth date, which is very controversial, his documented school records having recorded dates which conflict entirely with his claims (by about 3 years). The reasons for fixing his birth date on 23 November 1926 were almost certainly part of a plan of deception, including the claim that it was predicted as Krishna’s descent by Sri Aurobindo.
