Prashanthi Nilayam Christmas 2014

“Pilgrimage to Prashanthi Nilayam Christmas 2014. Sai Ram,
In December you received the wonderful news from Dr. Thayaparan that Bhagawan has blessed a Canadian Pilgrimage to Puttaparthi in December of 2014.”
Pilgrimage to see the decorations and lights? This Dr. Arumugam Thayaparan is the Chairman of Canada Sai Council. He announces that Bhagavan has decided that Canadians are to visit the ashram this Christmas. Whether he believes that Bhagavan has resurrected, or is still with us ‘behind the scenes’, he is careful not to say how Sai Baba communicated with him – perhaps through Ratnakara and Co., who badly need income and will never turn down funding from anywhere (and Canada is well to do and still has a fair number of devotees).”
Thayaparan’s plan for Xmas 2014 is almost entirely decorative, as the pdf put out from Canada’s chapter of the Sai cult shows. The designed decorations forl the venues are shown in great detail. What poverty for a spiritual message! Seeing that devotees believe that no one can say anything new that Sai Baba has not already said, and that they are neither allowed to – nor are capable of – thinking outside the SaiBaba box, there is nothing original they dare say that does not parrot Sai Baba in one way or another. So the main message is made to be four colours:-
“We present the Canadian flavor in our Canadian Christmas theme colors of Red, White, Gold and Silver. Each color brings in its own importance and blends in with our Dear Lord’s message of life.
RED – the color signifies LOVE. “Where there is Love, there GOD is certainly evident. Love more and more people, Love them more and more intensely: transform the Love into service, transform the service into worship: that is the highest sadhana.”
WHITE – the color signifies PURITY. “Love is enough to realize the Supreme. Love which moves, flows from one heart to another, from one place to another, from one person to another and ultimately reaches the destination which is called the GRACE of GOD. Such love is Pure. “
GOLD – the color signifies STRENGTH & RADIANCE. “It is only when man cultivates humanness that society will shine with radiance and the nation and the world will progress. Humanness can be promoted only through spirituality and not by any other means. Just as a seed can sprout only when it is planted in the soil and watered, human values can grow only in spiritual soil.”
SILVER -the color signifies SERENITY. I must tell you of the paramount importance of LOVE. LOVE is God: Live in LOVE. You can see the moon only with the help of Moon Light; you can see God only through the rays of LOVE.”
-Sathya Sai Baba”
(source – heading of – The main photo of that site shows Jesus (with a twin goatee beard) beside Sathya Sai Baba. Makes those who know what Sai Baba really was and did think that the two were really totally incompatible and worlds apart. Note also that Sai Baba did not identify those colours as symbols of the four qualities that is claimed above. He did however say that you can see the moon only with the help of Moon Light, which is a classic blooper so typical of his ignorant glibness (for Sai devotees who know no better, it is the sun that makes the moon visible). Of course, the four named colours are taken throughout the world to symbolise a very wide variety of differing and often opposing ideas, feelings, values, conditions etc.
See what Sai Baba said on Christmas Days Past:-
Sathya Sai Baba: Christmas 2000 Discourse The infamous Christmas discourse of 2000 where he scourged his critics unforgivingly and lied blatantly about them.
Christmas Sandesh (Discourse) 1998 “Truly speaking, Christmas falls in the month of March…” and “”When it was decided that all the devotees of Jesus should be crucified along with Him, even His closest devotees, Peter, Matthew, and St. Paul refused to identify themselves as His followers.” (Paul was never there at all!)
Christmas Day 1996 Discourse This one contained some of the greatest historical blunders and confusion that he ever made about Christianity and Islam. Eg. “Three hundred and fifty years B.C., before Christ, Jews lived. However, among Jews, there were religions such as Islam and Christianity.”
Christmas discourse 1996: Faked materialisation of ‘tiny bible’ during discourse revealed and exposed
Sai Baba- Christmas not remotely as it was.
Sai Baba Christmas 2010 unforgiving hypocrisy, Santa Claus & blunders.
