Sathya Sai (i.e. ‘master of truth’) buried facts and his secret acts
Posted by robertpriddy on October 15, 2014
Sathya Sai Baba held that facts have no significance beside the higher, divine truth, and so can safely be ignored, which he and his minions did when the facts were even slightly damning. The old doctrine of most religions, that ‘The Truth’ is ineffable and beyond all human knowledge – is itself a parody of all reasonable philosophical and radical ideas of truth. They all believe, in one way or another, that their imagined Truth (i.e. only indirectly available while alive) can only be realised by unification with God , at best after death, until when one must rely on what little God has (they suppose) revealed in the ancient scriptures of religions, or through saints, angels or other intermediaries. This is also where priests, swamis, bishops, evangelists and all those who live by – or profit from – religion get their feet in the figurative door.
Sai Baba cut out all those middlemen and proclaimed himself to be God the Creator (documented here) and everything that entails! He could thereby hide behind the mystery of Divinity and at the same time enforce the cover up of all facts negative to him and his activities in his ashrams. His Sathya Sai Organization banned absolutely all non-positive thoughts and ideas concerning Sai Baba or anything connected to his fiefdom and institutions. Time and again, it appeared that, where Sai Baba was involved, no major incident at his ashrams or colleges and hospitals – or anything about his clandestine Central Trust – could be accessed except by determined investigation, careful digging and correlating information critically from as many reliable sources as possible. All those still connected in any way with Sai Baba developed a kind of brainwashing of a physically non-violent and hence very effective sort, particularly since the great majority of followers were in later years were at such a distance from Sai Baba and were kept suitably uninformed on purpose. The very effective cult of tight wraps on information about Sai Baba, about what he did when not visible at darshan, about his many failed minor and major plans, and the constant flow of indoctrination and misinformation, all misled all devotees into believing that things were just fine! The Sai Organization was made to distort actual matters and present half-truths, incomplete information and heavily slanted presentations as well as outright false propaganda. They copy their swami’s avoidance behaviour, perpetuating the flow of indoctrination and misinformation. It is mostly also self-induced doctrine and self-sustained self-deception by those who are in denial about Sai Baba’s gigantic deceptions and wrongdoings as found documented through this blog site.
The converse of all this is growing disaffection among those who feel most suppressed by it, while the ‘outside world’ that happens to observe it independently of the required rigid assumptions, finding its questions unanswered.
All the diminishing clan whose prestige and hopes are still invested in Sai Baba, most even believe that his prophesies will be fulfilled, ignoring the fact that most of his prophesies referred to his own lifetime and have failed dismally.
One small example; a reborn Vivekananda would run his ashram after his death. The Sri Lankan, Nalin Sedera, was pointed out as this reincarnation in the 1980s by Sai Baba, but he soon rejected the claim and, of course, has nothing whatever to do with the current Prashanthi Nilayam. Devotees put their faith in that mockery of intelligence that their prematurely deceased ‘Godhead’ will be reborn as Prema Sai. A smart move by the self-appointed ‘poorna avatar‘ to ensure that no one living could claim to be his successor! Despite that, there are already claimants, and the future will almost certainly see any number of Prema Sai impostors… there are fortunes to be made.
