Sai Baba upheld dangerous deep Black Magic & Witchcraft superstitions
Posted by robertpriddy on January 15, 2016
Belief in black magic, witchcraft and the powers of sinister tantric priests is still widespread in India, even among some well-educated and ruling classes. The newspaper article text on beheading of a mere boy reproduced below is but one of the latest in an endless series of reports of murders due to these sick beliefs. For example, a long series of Indian Presidents and Prime Ministers have worshipped Sathya Sai Baba, and still do, yet he was adamant that these practices are real. Not surprising, therefore, that it is proving impossible to eliminate black magic and associated killings of defenseless victims of accusers. This is a largely defunct aspect of Hinduism depending on beliefs in demonic deities, assuaging them through sacrifices.
“Of course, there is magic in the world both white and black; but, the manifestation of Divine Power must not be interpreted as magic. Can the crow’s egg and the cuckoo’s egg be identified as belonging to one class?” Sathya Sai Baba Speaks – Vol 10. p. 261 (click)
Asked, “Do demons really exist, Swami?” he replied “Yes! Those who committed suicide, those killed in accidents, those who met with an untimely death, all these will be roaming around like ghosts.” (p. 41 – Anyatha Saranam Nasthi (‘Other than you refuge there is none’) by Sai devotee Smt. Vijayumari – p. 41)
Another adulatory and overblown hagiography is ‘Lokanatha Sai’ by M.N. Leela, [signed/ authenticated in 1995 by Sathya Sai Baba] where we read of his spreading superstitions about black magic: “Swami called my mother and others separately and said that a black magician had done havoc to my father: on that Friday when my father went early morning with bailiff and removed his shed put in our land at Guindy. He also said. “Dig the spot where you find broken pots and remove the remains of goat and chicken etc and throw them off. Now he is fully recovered, but the aim of the sorcerer Is to drive him mad and ultimately kill him.” ( p. 151) See scan of the excerpt
Four-year-old boy beheaded in human sacrifice in southern India
According to Indian media, a 35-year-old man abducted the little boy as he walked home from nursery and killed him in a ritual dedicated to the Hindu Goddess Kali. A four year-old-boy has been beheaded in a gruesome “human sacrifice” ritual in a rural village in southern India.
Indian media reports a 35-year-old man abducted the little boy as he was returning home from nursery in the remote Prakasam district of Andhra Pradesh state.
The man, named as Tirumala Rao, is reported to have beheaded the child in a ritual to honour the Hindu Goddess Kali and he was alleged to be seeking “divine powers”, according the Times of India. Mr Rao was discovered next to the little boy’s, named locally as Manu Sagar, body. Police officers believe he strangled the boy before chopping his head off as they found rope at the scene.
