Global Baba – upcoming film on Indian spiritual gurus

Posted by robertpriddy on September 29, 2015

Another film on Indian gurus which promises to be another advance for the exposure of these false prophets and self-appointed holy men and women. Global Baba is a Bollywood film based on spiritual babas of India. India can arguably be named the land of the babas, with thousands of devotees blindly surrendering themselves to godmen. The idea behind Global Baba is to expose such babas is in the offing. Abhimanyu Singh plays a godman in the movie.

That there is a crying need for publicity against a majority of Hindu gurus, babas, avatars, swamis is evident to anyone who has studied the nature of these cults and penetrated the hidden aspects of some of them in depth. In the blog The Dark Side of very prominent Hindu gurus is a brief summary of some prominent spiritual charlatans and criminal defrauders, sexual abusers and murderers among them.

During most of the last century until 2011, Sathya Sai Baba rose to be the most prominent of all Hindu gurus – self-appointed avatar etc. etc. – with a fairly wide appeal globally. Though the numbers were vastly exaggerated, he did have substantial followings in a large number of countries, while visitors came from all over the world to attend his ashrams, his birthday celebrations, holy days and World Conferences. Since his infamous ‘divine downfall’, followed by an ignominious death, what remains of his following is  spreading to the winds as divisions multiply between the residue. Now what was his official organisation based on Prashanthi Nilayam is to hold what they call a ‘World Conference’ (Puttaparthi World Conference = Nov 25 – 27th),  and the most successful breakaway grouping has also announced the Muddenahalli World Conference = Nov 19 – 23rd.

Taken together these conferences will not be able to draw as much as an infinitesimal percentage, less than one millionth of the world population! And over 90% of those will surely only be local Indians. So much for the global ambitions of these money-maker cults.

Sathya Sai Baba gibberish

Posted by robertpriddy on September 22, 2015

A few snippits from the bottomless well of Sathya Sai Baba faux pas, foibles, fads and falsities:
Sai Baba claimed that the original language of the Vedas was Sanskrit, saying:-
“In the Sanskrit language, the first letter of the alphabet is ‘A’ and the last one is ‘Ha.’ When you combine A and Ha, it becomes Aha.” [10 July 1986]
Comment:  Interesting indeed.. a fair example of the simplistic quality of the “wisdom” he dispensed. It virtually guaranteed that no serious educated person who is not deeply indoctrinated, would not consider his massive claims to have any weight whatever.

Countless contradictions arise when he made claims about the ancient Vedas. For example, he stated that the Vedas are limitless (Sutra Vahini , p. 30) and in the same sentence says they are “incommunicable” but “can be experienced”. He declared that the Vedas emanated from God Himself as inhalation/exhalation (Sathya Sai Vahini p. 176). This is in accordance with Hindu mythology, whereby Brahma let the Vedas slip from his mouth after he had created the universe, and the demonic (i.e. ‘asura‘) horse Hayagriva took hold of them and made them available to the world. This kind of nonsense is put forward even today and believed by millions.

He said in a discourse in November, 1999, “People from other countries understand the values of the Vedas better than the Indians. The Japanese and the Germans studied the Atharvana Veda deeply with the result that they could excel in the manufacture of arms and ammunition.”

Such a bizarre statement must have been ‘plucked out of thin air’ by Sai Baba. If the Vedas were so helpful to the Germans and the Japanese in developing weapons during World War II, THAT is surely a great advert for them? Both those nations were soundly defeated by superior weapons!  Neither the Allies nor Russian derived one fig of nuclear weapon  information from the Vedas! Today’s ruling Indians (“Bharatiyas” like Prime Minister Narasimha Rao, President Kalam and others) bought information to develop and test nuclear weapons as a challenge to Pakistan, but got no help from the ritual hymns and the like in the Vedas.  Neither the Allies nor Russian derived one fig of nuclear weapon information from the Vedas!

Sai Baba held a discourse (11/8/01, published in Sanathana Sarathi, September 2001) in which he said wholly unbelievable things, such as “Today is Krishna Janmashtami, the birthday of Lord Krishna. I am making a promise today that the people of all the countries, viz. Pakistan, China, Germany, Russia will be united. That should be our goal. The goodness of Bharat will lead to this unity.” (p. 267) This makes any well-informed person think both how vague and how extremely unlikely Baba’s ‘promises’ mostly were. Did he mean all countries of the world will join in one union, like a glorified USA or EU? Or would there just be an imaginative kind of feeling of unity? Some zealous devotees saw this as a prediction of the supposed ‘unity’ between countries that were then going to war against the terrorists. But Sai Baba specifically included ‘the people of all the countries”.

Supreme Court on protecting witnesses in Asaram case

Posted by robertpriddy on September 18, 2015

The Times of India, NEW DELHI Sewptember 15, 2015, reports:-

Taking a serious view of recent incidents in which witnesses in criminal cases against Asaram Bapu were killed, the Supreme Court on Monday asked trial courts to provide protection to witnesses facing threat.

A bench of Justices A R Dave and A K Goel directed trial courts hearing cases against Asaram to pass appropriate orders for giving protection to witnesses if they were threatened. The court passed the order on a PIL filed by Augustine Castelino, a non-resident Indian living in Auckland, New Zealand. Castelino, in his plea, referred to the death of witnesses Amrut Prajapati, Akhil Gupta and Rahul Sachan and urged the court to order protection for all witnesses in three cases against Asaram pending in Rajasthan and Gujarat.

More Muddenahalli demands for cash

Posted by robertpriddy on September 15, 2015

Accomodation in Muddenahalli: (source:  It is interesting that they call Muddenahalli the “ashram” and refer to the main sb hub as only “Puttaparthi”.

The pdf document here mentions trying to secure funding thanks to “Swami’s direction” to do this or that project, accepting not only individual but also corporate funds. It even mentions “Sai Global Mission” (a US 501c3 non-profit) which was just set up! It mentions “tight deadlines” due to oracle boy’s demands.

Also, trying to find a place to purchase to start a US ashram. Wonder who all these rich devotees are, who can go out and purchase a beachfront house in a very expensive area? Of course, wherever “sukshma swami” goes, oracle boy is sure to follow.
It is mindboggling to me that people are actually believing in an imaginary presence, all due to the words of one single person who has a past of failure. This needs to go in some record book!
An added mystery is how the subtle sb already declared he is born again in Karnataka, yet he continues in his subtle body! It is all an unbelievable act that is fascinating as it is ridiculous!

Comment: I now understand the ‘fully realised masters’, which MadhuSudan is likely to be soon.  Namely, another Master in Self-Deception (unless it is ‘mere’ deception)

Muddenahalli Sukshma Baba demands more money

Posted by robertpriddy on September 9, 2015

Now we see yet more starkly the bottom line of the entire Muddenahalli scam… the oracle boy commands ‘Give More Money!’ This is asked under the false pretence that he is the mouthpiece of Sathya Sai Baba. It is supposedly for serving the needy, but much of it is used to build up a vast infrastructure for the benefit of privileged officialdom, and to attract as many devotees and visitors as possible to support all who ride the gravy train. Everyone with the slightest insight into Sathya Sai Baba’s massive money machine know that the amounts donated are preyed upon and embezzled by the guru’s ‘officials’ in every possible way. It is simply the Indian culture of corruption, seen in all major Indian gurus. The not-so-subtle story bears the message of Madhu Sudan is that no matter how poor you are, you need to GIVE MONEY!!

“The responsibility of building and creating the infrastructure is Swami’s. But the running of them is your job. ..Many of you have good jobs and good families. But many of my children in our institutions are from poor families. The students’ hearts melt when they see how Swami is working for them. Swami gave an example. The example was given to show what type of feelings His boys have in His school. There is this 9th class boy who is not earning any money. With the little money he was earning from his parents he put it aside and offered it to Swami. This boy had to attend painting classes during his vacation. He didn’t want to waste money so he decided to change buses to conserve money. He wrote to Swami saying that it was not big money, that he has saved on his expenses, but he has gathered it together to offer at His feet so that another child may benefit and receive an education like he is. This boy keeps sending to Swami 20 rupees, 50 rupees however much he saves. He kept all that money in his cupboard not spending a single paisa. I am going to call that boy not because I want to praise him but I want to demonstrate the kind of feelings that my boys have. This kind of selflessness and pure love is possible for children and not possible for the polluted hearts of the elders. The letter was read out.

“Dear Mother Sai. Pranams at thy Lotus Feet. You have provided everything in my life. I offer this small gift at Your Feet. I request you to provide love to poor children in the form of Educare so that another brother or sister can have the opportunity to be with you. Thank you Swami. Your Son ….. ” If a boy in 9th class has this kind of mind what should your minds be thinking. Our job is to support children like this in our educational institutions. I am looking after all the expenses of the childen. Before the school was collecting some fees. I told them not to collect fees. If you do then you cannot call it Sathya Sai School. Our schools are value based free education to children. Presently we have 5000 children; in the future there will be 25,000 students. The responsibility of building and creating the infrastructure is Swami’s. But the running of them is your job.
It is narrow minded thinking to create an Anantapur, Prashanthi, Brindavan or an Alike alumnai organization. Today they have all come together under one organisation called The Children for Sathya Sai. Today onwards you have to get united and make the name Children for Sathya Sai find its fullfillment. The organization must have humility, truth and integrity. Blessing and my grace for each of you! I am very happy.

At least Phyllis Krystal has seen through this false ‘subtle’ Baba and has declared that she was misled.

Sukshma Baba rejected by Phyllis Krystal

Posted by robertpriddy on September 4, 2015

The 100 year-old Phyllis Krystal, long-term Sai Baba devotee and author of a Sai Baba hagiography (plus diverse New Age style books on healing) has posted a declaration on her website, as follows:-

I, Phyllis Krystal declare from this day forward to have nothing to do with Madhusudan from Mudhanahalli.

My difficult life situation, and weakened physical condition, unfortunately let me drift from my inner contact with Baba, my own HiC. I started to rely on this outer source.

I wish to return wholeheartedly to what Swami taught us over and over again, to seek Him in our heart instead of somewhere outside. Which, also corresponds with the Method that was given to me so many years ago.

I therefore want to cancel the planned visit of Madhusudan and his group this weekend, including any further future visits.
Guildford, August 29th 2015

For the uninitiated the term ‘my own HiC’ means ‘her own High Consciousness'” This speaks for itself about her self-evaluation. However, her published works – though popular with many – bear witness to a confused and unstable-minded person with unlimited credulity and Pollyanna solutions to all problems of human suffering, while claiming it is ‘psychology’. She went around the world preaching about SB’s programme ‘Ceiling on Desires’ but stayed at 5 star hotels and travelled business class etc. (She is a millionairess, not a sannyasin, that’s for sure). One follower of this blog recently mailed me saying: “It all goes to show that so-called ‘spiritual’ people don’t have much intuition to speak of, though they fancy themselves amongst the blessed and special ones, spending so much time ‘tuning in’ to what is ‘real’. That in itself should shout to the world that god is a hoax!

Read this critical review of her writings and behaviour as a Sai Baba VIP.
