Puttaparthi in further decline

Puttaparthi has become more and more as it was before the Sathya Sai Baba boom, with so few visitors and foreign tourists with money that its economy has shrunk, despite all the efforts of politicians and subsidies etc. to make it into a major religious site. The reputation of Sathya Sai Baba was destroyed internationally after the revelations in 2000 of major serial sex abuses by him and the subsequent discovery of the wall-to-wall corruption, bribery, criminal activities and the ignominious death of the self-proclaimed ‘Creator of the Universe’ (see proof here). Almost all who remain believers are Indians and a handful of non-Indian people in other countries.

Asaram Bapu and co. cause flight disruption

Posted by robertpriddy on September 24, 2016

Police escort spiritual leader Asaram Bapu (L) outside an airport after his arrest in Jodhpur, in India's desert state of Rajasthan September 1, 2013. Police arrested Bapu from India's central Madhya Pradesh state late on Saturday night and transited him to neighbouring Rajasthan for further questioning on charges of sexual assault on a minor.

Police escorted spiritual leader Asaram Bapu outside an airport after his arrest in Jodhpur, in India’s desert state of Rajasthan September 1, 2013.

‘Who needs seat belts when God is with us?’: Asaram Bapu devotees create havoc on flight  (DNA INDIA report)
Self-styled Hindu godman Asaram Bapu and his brigade of devotees created commotion on a Jet Airways Jodhpur-Delhi flight, chanting slogans and refusing to sit through the entire flight duration, said three passengers who were on board, reported the Economic Times (ET). (Read more here)

ALSO: The Jet Airways Flight 9W 2552 flying from Jodhpur to Delhi was delayed as officials escorted Asaram Bapu onto the plane.

“At around 2:00 pm, suddenly, government officials and cops form a periphery near the airport security as people huddled as close as they could to see one certain Asaram Bapu in his infamous red beanie, being wheeled in on a chair. As they wheeled him towards boarding we could hear the word ‘Sai’ being murmured in veneration of the “God-man” who is being held on rape charges.

The flight takes off and there are no in-flight instructions given by the air hostesses. No instructions on how to operate the life safety jackets, or the oxygen masks if we needed them. We were left to fend for ourselves. …the crew who seemed to be only too caught up in asking Asaram Bapu’s followers to calm down and stay seated on an extremely turbulent flight, despite the fact that they could not seem to understand the importance of seat belts.

On being repeatedly asked and warned, quite half-heartedly, about being seated, the God-man’s followers, merely laughed it off and continued their acts of defiance of protocol. … all of Asaram’s whims were being prioritized, at the expense of the lives of the remaining flight passengers. When it got to an overwhelming point where we could not just sit and take it anymore, my co-passenger and I got hold of one of the cabin crew and asked her to please justify the reason for the horrific experience we were having.”

Swami Ambikananda at Sathya Sai Baba’s ashram

Swami Ambikananda takes darsan of Sathya Sai Baba, ca late 1960s

The London-based Swami Ambikananda who was originally from Mauritius visited India and lived a while in the Himalayas, and also visited South India to see Sathya Sai Baba, the supposed reincarnation of Shirdi Sai Baba who Ambikananda worshipped. The above scene could have been either at Prashanthi Nilayam or Whitefield near Bangalore. Swami Ambikananda certainly visited Whitefield as I was present when he said the name was most unfitting, the place was a run-down dirty place. He had told that no words passed between Sathya Sai and himself, but that they had an unspoken understanding. He spoke frequently and reverently of Sathya Sai Baba during the 1970s (and probably until his death). At that time, Sathya Sai Baba was widely recognised as a pure, holy man and even an avatar (except to a very small number of critics). Not until around 2000 did the flood of testimonies of fraud, sexual abuses and involvement in bribery and murder surface, nor was the intensely secretive cultist nature of cover-up by all officials around him yet widely known.

Had Ambikananda lived long enough to become aware of the massive allegations against Sathya Sai Baba, the chances are that he would have ignored them out of hand due to the respect he expressed for Sathya Sai Baba and the similarity between the teachings behind the spiritual endeavours they recommended. Not least, had he been truly prescient and had psychic powers to gain full insight into others, he would have known about Sai Baba’s massive failings. Had he been able to realise the extent and depth of Sathya Sai Baba’s deceptions, breaks of trust, countless abuses of young males and direct involvement in bribery and murder, he would have had to condemn them. He was perhaps fortunate to have died before the storm broke. Some of his former prominent followers had left him in favour of Sathya Sai Baba, but these too had later realised that Sai Baba’s fraud and deception was rife and consequently rejected him too.

I have written a thorough account of my involvement with Swami Ambikananda in the 1970s on my home page website here.

Sathya Sai Seva Organisation’s three ‘initiatives’

Posted by robertpriddy on September 12, 2016

The declining powers-that-be at Prashanthi Nilayam which are losing a large proportion of the former following there are so unsuccessful in promoting Parthi that they now try to spread the word of the ‘false god’ to innocent and (hopefully for them) naive pilgrims in the tourist-cramped Rishikesh. They announced three initiatives, the first of which is to open a ‘Sathya Sai ghat’ beside the Ganges at Rishikesh so visitors and tourists can get a “safe and hygienic dip” in the the Ganges. How this can be guaranteed is anyone’s guess since it is known that the Ganges there is also polluted by effluents, corpses and chemical run-offs from agriculture. Of course, all Hindus are indoctrinated to believe that the waters of Mother Ganga are holy and hence pure to all who drink it. They will have a devotional concert promoting young ashram musicians there on one day in September.

The other two initiatives are nothing that they have not been trying, all to encourage youth to get involved in the Sai doctrine and the Vedas. They need to try and wrench back some of those flocking to the even more false and calculating guru money cult at Muddenahalli who worship the ex-student who is impersonating Sathya Sai Baba and pretending that his body is ‘taken over’ by the spirit (or spectre?) of his former consort ‘Sukshma Baba’ (or Madhu Sudan) This was announced in The Hans, India.
