Miracles as Sai Baba’s ‘Visiting Cards’?

Posted by robertpriddy on November 3, 2013

Recapitulating some of the views of intelligent Indians on Sathya Sai Baba: In a longish comment on his blogsite site Jaggat wrote (02/08/2008):-
“I agree that the credulousness that people, especially in India, have in miracles makes them soft marks for charlatans.”

“I was talking to Nilakanth the other day about his experiences in Bangalore with Sai Saba and his followers. Members of his wife‘s family are wealthy and make huge donations to Sai Baba’s cause, despite having been shown videos that clearly demonstrate Sai Baba’s using cheap slight-of-hand to produce his “miracles” like coughing up a Shiva linga and the such.

NK also told how his wife invited a Sai Baba disciple, a woman, who had apparently learned the same tricks and was using them to build up a following. She miraculously produced for them a bauble from thin air that still had the market price ticket on it. And yet these educated, middle-class, well-to-do Indians were gobbling it up. Worse than all this, though, are the New Vrindavan-like stories of murder victims‘ bodies discovered in the premises of his ashrams and other such much more nefarious dealings, such as sexual abuse, etc.”
