Why the Sathya Sai Organisation has declined
Posted by robertpriddy on November 28, 2016
Not only has the Sathya Sai Organisation lost most of its members worldwide, found most of it centers and groups have ceased to be and has seen their one-time huge number of websites reduced to a mere handful… it has been split in two by the maverick Muddenahalli movement, which is as transparent a scam as have ever been seen even in India.
The fraudulent ‘oracle boy’ Madhu Sudan who claims to be ‘possessed’ by the subtle body of the dead Sathya Sai Baba to the degree that the many deluded ex-Sathya devotees who were devastated when their guru died and their world fell apart have adopted this former student and consort of Sai Baba as Swami Himself, treating him in exactly the same way they did Sathya Sai Baba. This usurper of the Sai form recently wrote in his ‘Sukshma Baba Report 372 17-11-16, Issue Fifty November 17, 2016:-
INNER VIEWBy Sri Madhusudan Naidu A devotee sought guidance from Swami regarding the running of Institutions, to which Swami gave the most profound answer.
Swami: For any Institution, leadership is important. As is the leader, so are the people. That’s why being a leader has more responsibilities than rights. Would God like this? Would it be good for all? These should be the important questions. But when ego takes over, these questions vanish. Then it’s all about whether I like it, and is it good for me! The reverse happens. Such selfish leadership is always the reason for the downfall of all Institutions. One who is able to put the interests of others before oneself alone can become a good leader.
This actually explains the demise of the Sathya Sai Organisation. Sathya SB was the overall undisputed leader of every institution bearing his name, but he claimed to own all the work of the Organisation, while insisting that all members should work for him and him alone. That is the mark of an authoritarian dictator, claiming to be God the Creator of the Universe! No wonder everything fell apart and the embezzlers, thieves, bribers and all manner of corrupt and lying officials took over in the bitter and dangerous struggle that followed upon Sai Baba’s ignominious death and the discovery of his massive and miserly hard of personal wealth (over which his Indian followers fought like dogs, in their usual fashion. Anyone who was selfless in that intensely secretive hierarchical set-up – the rotten Sathya Sai Orgaisation – was trodden upon and silenced, threatened or worse.
