‘Subtle Sai Baba’ gets more demanding
Posted by robertpriddy on July 17, 2015
The imaginary ‘subtle form’ of Sai Baba – supposedly speaking through his former intimate student, ‘Sri’ Madhusudhan Naidu , – spouts ‘discourses’ which are utterly boring to hear and which demonstrate that the ego of Madhu Sudan is more than intact, as his original false humility wears thinner and more blatant. Now he is making a bid to take over a key part of the apparatus of Prashanthi Nilayam, the student alumni and the Seva Dal (voluntary service workers). In a discourse outrageously entitled ‘Sai Baba’s Discourse to upcoming Seva Dals’ on July 11, he proclaims:-
“This is your family and you have to take care of it, and attend to all the programs. When I Willed to come to Muddenahalli to continue My mission, I brought the Alumni and students who will follow Me and contribute to it.”
“If you have any questions, ask the elders first. If they are not able to answer, then come to Me. But the elders also come to me for answers, so you might as well ask Me directly.”
Comment: A true mish-mash of conflicting ideas showing that no blunder is too big for the devotees to gush over, as many of us observed in Sai Baba. Then, true to the rules enforced at Sai Baba ashrams, he requires the cover-up of all differences of opinion… which only shows that there is serious infighting at Muddenahalli, not only throughout the remaining whole Sai Baba movement:-
“Differences in the family should stay within the family and should not be discussed outside. I am going to different countries for the sake of the devotees and starting Ashrams there. We are starting ashrams in Italy, Croatia, Australia, Nigeria, America, Sri Lanka and ultimately there will be 17 of them. Each Ashram will have a school, a hospital and be a center for many seva projects. Glorious times are ahead. Only those who serve selflessly and are pure hearted will get an opportunity to serve Swami is happy that Alumni from all institutions have come together. More people will join in future.”.
Most Sai followers regard the ‘Glorious time’ to be of the past, but Madhu Sudan understands that Sai Baba made much use of guilt to induce followers to give free work to help ‘the Cause’! Ashrams are not what they used to be, places of retreat and refuge equivalent to monasteries, for they have mostly become centres of ‘megaphone spirituality’, indoctrination based on false information and wild beliefs and superstitions, cultist mentality and, above all, engineered to generate huge funds from donations and religious scams to fund the luxury lives of those in power.
“90th birthday is still small compared to the 95th birthday which will be the last one of this avatar. Lots of projects will start everywhere before the 95th birthday. I will look after these projects as Prema Sai.”
One can’t suppress a laugh at this. At one stroke, the Muddenahalli gang have in this way refuted the theory, held so dear by so many devotees in denial, that Sai Baba reckoned time in lunar years (only concerning his own lifespan, of course) and so did die at age 95! More than that, there is now a growing cult that believes Prema Sai is already alive as a child in Doddamalur, while others promote beliefs that Prema Sai will be born on Gurupoornima this year or later… as so on. What a circus, only possible where primitive religious belief blots out factual knowledge, common sense and all the relevant sciences!
“There will be a western canteen set up by Italians. Cook with love and serve with love. Swami gave another incident. In the South Indian Canteen there was a person who did service, but it was poor. When additional peope showed up he put extra water into the food and made sure everyone ate it. He spoke with harsh words. He wanted that Baba should put Tulsi leaf and water in his mouth when he was on his death bed. Baba told him your service was not quality. For fame and name you did it. You gave the wrong food and trouble to devotees. Now your disease is the result of what you did. At least learn now and do better in your next life.”
It seems that this ‘oracle boy’ has lasting resentment against some sevak from the South Indian Canteen and is happily revealing in the fact that the guy got a disease and no attention from ‘swami’ on his death bed – so beware, devotees!
