Sathya Sai Baba blessed criminal Italian Prime Minister, Bettino Craxi

Posted by robertpriddy on January 28, 2009

Sathya Sai Baba has blessed numerous convicted or indicted criminals, including Mr. Bettino Crax, and Mr. Guilio Andreotti – both Italian Prime Ministers, Dictator Idi Amin of Uganda, who he personally visited in Kampala, he was strongly supportive of the his devotee, Indian Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao, who “fled to his feet” after acquittal on corruption charges (most probably though Sathya Sai Baba’s influence over his devotees such as Supreme Court judges and PM at the time, A.B. Vajpayee). Sai Baba has also visited and blessed a known criminal liquor kind, Mr. Reddy of Madras, among numerous other similar shady persons in India.

bcraxi1 Bettino Craxi visited Sathya Sai Baba in Puttaparthi in late 1986 while he was Italy’s Prime Minister.  The visit of the Craxi family and the blessings the Italian Prime Minister received fro Sathya Sai Baba were reported in his official journal Sanathana Sarathi (p. 273 November 1986). Craxi arrived with his wife and a small entourage and heavily armed security guards in a helicopter, which landed in the ashram grounds. The ladies were wearing very short skirts, stiletto heels and heavy lipstick make-up, which caused alarm among the Sai officials and servitors who were involved (such dress is regarded in an extremely derogatory light among Sai Baba followers). All ashram visitors and residents were excluded from the area while the visit took place. Sathya Sai Baba expressed dislike of the weapons carried, saying it was unnecessary, and when they laid them down, he gave vibuti (‘holy ash’) to the security men, who were somewhat perplexed by it.
In the interview Bettino Craxi asked Sai Baba about what the future held for him and was reportedly told that there were persons close to him one whom he could not rely. (What a wise – but entirely obvious- comment to an Italian politician in the thick of a corrupt system!). In 1993, B. Craxi was charged with murder of a journalist and major corruption and he resigned as Socialist party leader. Bettino Craxi died as a criminal in exile in Tunis, fleeing a conviction in Italy of about 18 years in prison plus multi-million dollar fines.

Wikipedia’s article on Craxi’s massive corruption and crime states: “A huge crowd assembled in front of the building and when Craxi finally went out, he was met with thousands of coins tossed at him. The outraged people intoned: “Bettino! Do you want even these?!”. This episode is remembered with agony, anger and scandal within the Italian political class, and with pride and long-lost joy by a majority of the common citizens.”
Bettino Craxi’s brother, Mr. Antonio Craxi, was the top leader of the Sathya Sai Organization in Europe (and Italy) for a number of years until he was replaced in the late 1980s by Pietro Marena of Divignano, near Milan. VKN expressed shock at the most hateful and vicious personal slanders he had ever heard (he told me)  by A. Craxi towards Pietro Marena and others (see scans of my notes recorded at the time) It was said to me by persons who knew the Craxi family well that Antonio had made a large donation to Sathya Sai Baba of money gained through the Mafia, which he wanted to offload to be forgiven his sins.

Mr. Antonio Craxi wore a ring supposed to be a ‘green diamond’ given by Sathya Sai Baba His wife has expressed her belief that Sai Baba rings with green stones are “power rings”. (This is very similar to ‘Lord of the Rings’ stuff taken literally). Many leading persons in India and the Organization were given what they were told by Sai Baba are green and white “diamond” rings, green and white in colour. Well, he gave me one (no doubt because I had promised what for me was a major donation) at Christmas 1986. I wore it for many years, but there was no power involved, though I suppose one could have used it to gain undue influence or ‘power’ over devotees who had no similar ‘blessings’ from this supposed God Incarnate with all powers in his hand, as he repeatedly claimed. Besides, the supposed ‘diamonds’  are fakes – synthetic stones (see proof here),  Antonio Craxi was not enabled by it to stay in his position of status in the Sathya Sai Organization, nor to help his brother, Bettino Craxi, from total disgrace and exile.

“Notable among Baba’s international inner circle are Guilio Andreotti, former Prime Minister of Italy, currently on trial for murder of a journalist, former Italian Prime Minister Bettino Craxi, sentenced to 5 1/2 years of imprisonment for corruption and Princess Poihlavi, sister of the former Shah of Iran, caught in Switzerland in 1962 for carrying heroin.

Hi Robert Priddy,
Thanks for answering to my post in detail, I will definitely get hold of Derren Brown’s videos on net and watch them. I am not sure if Baba has some ‘Siddi’ power or have some other skills beyond normal human being.
Well, I would like to know if Baba is a trickster then there must be extensive network involved in his game play, like some place or people involved where these material objects are manufactured or procured and persons transporting these objects. But, to my knowledge no body has found any such network or persons involved. Any comments from your side?
– Thanks
Vasudeva Shenoy

Hi Vasudeva, There is no question but that Sathya Sai Baba is surrounded by people who do and tell exactly what they are told. But there have been many reports and I have received confidential e-mails from numerous persons telling how it is all arranged and who provides the trinkets he ‘materialises’. David Bailey reported a visit to a jeweller in Hyderabad who claimed to supply Sai Baba with some of the alleged ‘diamond rings’ he pretends to create from thin air. Incidentally, identical rings (synthetic stones like zircon in white, synthetic sapphires in green, navagraha 9-gem rings etc.) can be purchased in many jeweller shops in South India quite cheaply. The BBC visited another supplier in Bangalore, but did not include the film in their one hour presentation for reasons of space (they reported 80 hours of film on the subject, from which but one hour was used). Students have contacted exposé activists telling of an elderly Indian (named too) well known as being able to enter the interview room door whenever he arrived who for many years carried in the articles to give to Sai Baba on a regular basis. Another student informed me in a private correspondence that Sai Baba has a small vibuthi pellet making machine. Though the source must remain anonymous at present at least, I give a verbatim excerpt from that letter for your interest:

”After the interview swami comes out and stands next to the pillar, and then he goes in. Luckily the interview door room is half open and I could see him going to the window. Then he picks up an envelope and takes out a vibhuti ball from it. Swami usually keeps crisp 500 rupee notes in the envelopes. It was the first time i saw vibuti in them.) He then realizes that the door is open and looks straight at me, then winks and comes out to give that vibhuti pellet to Dr.Goldstein by crushing it.”
He also tells of a friend who was doing housework for Sai Baba in Kodai who opened a box (which no one was supposed to touch) in Swami’s apartment which was full of rings of all sizes, brooches, necklaces and more. His friend was devastated and later he saw Sai Baba pretend to ‘materialize’ some of these articles for people on several occasions. We have also been informed how Sai Baba ‘materialises’ the oil he puts on boys’ and young men’s p*n*ses. He has a sponge in a tray of oil hidden somewhere, so he only has to grip it once to get oil on his hands. Satya Purcell has testified to such things (see http://www.exbaba.com/articles/sathyapurcell02.html and other of his 6-part testimony) including how Sai Baba has many informants who mingle with devotees, also taxi drivers and others seemingly not connected with the ashram. In this way he can appear to know things it seems no one could.I cannot give a full account here of all that is know about the apparatus around Sai Baba, but there have been numerous informants through the last 7 years. Perhaps we should gather them all together for all to see at one go.

Hi Robert Priddy,

I just watched some of the Derren Browns videos and they are very interesting. Well spirituality, belief in God are some of the things no one has exact answers. Probably mankind will soon find a rational approach towards these topics. I find it amusing after so many years of training under Baba to love all and server all how some of the devotees still react with rage and anger in regards to any questions related to authenticity/duplicity of Baba. We are living in a world where reasoning is way of life. We are not living in a meta physical world. Come on guys, let’s live by reason and not blind faith.

When I was in Parthi, I use to see this happen all the time, fake materializations(at least to my eye). I did ask my Dad about this stuff and he bluntly put it like this – “You are just a kid, look at all the top scientists, doctors and educationalists who have dedicated their lives and career in serving Baba, do you think you are smarter than all of them”, well I have no answer to that question even now. Neither I was able to ask my question to peer devotees for the fear that I would either be thrown out of campus or run into some serious trouble with concerned authorities. Like many people like me who are skeptical, I always think I shouldn’t have even known about Baba and gotten into this mess. Luckily I never had any personal interviews nor any special relationship with him. If Baba is divine why are such skeptical people gotten into his fold. Instead he should remove such skepticism and show his authenticity for everyone since everyone is embodiment of love as per his oft saying.

Thanks Vasudeva, I would comment that I have never heard of any ‘top’ scientist visiting or supporting Sai Baba, no world figure of real intellectual distinction whatever… only unknown American Ph.Ds (they are two a penny there) or Indian apparatchik nuclear science administrators… the same for ‘top’ educationalists… no one of real note in pedagogy or educational research. As to doctors, who are the top doctors is anyone’s guess.As to V.K. Narasimhan – a charming man followed his intensely Sai-devoted wife to Baba’s ashrams and got increasingly trapped in a role which became more and more uncomfortable, but he could not break out. He supported Sai Baba mainly because of the great promise his social projects once held, and put up with a lot he disagreed with for that reason. He was worried that his editing out of Sai Baba worst gaffes would discredit him, the former journalist. He shocked me time and again with revelations about Sai Baba and what goes on at the ashram – for example, that Colonel Joga Rao was known to all old residents never to have believed in Sai Baba’s miracles, but that he would serve him for the good he was trying to do in education etc. That Joga Rao loved filthy barrack room jokes and bored everyone with them, including VKN, and was accepted by Sai Baba (who also shared in the jokes)and allowed free access at any time to the private rooms… that I could not at first believe.
