Sathya Sai Baba and the Vedas – part two

from Sai Baba Discourse November, 1999

—-
Sathya Sai Baba claims 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]

Aha! Interesting indeed. The quote is a good example of the simplistic quality of the “wisdom” that Sathya Sai Baba dispenses. It virtually guarantees that no serious educated person who is not deeply indoctrinated with religious nonsense, will never consider his massive claims to have any weight whatever.

Countless contradictions arise when Sathya Sai Baba makes statements about the Vedas. For example, he states that the Vedas are limitless (Sutra Vahini , p. 30) and in the same sentence says they are “incommunicable” but “can be experienced”. Yet he also promotes the daily chanting of the text of the Vedas – such as at his college and ‘Vedas Patsala’, insisting that the “correct pronunciation of them is essential. This last he illustrates with a story in Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol. 2, p. 256f) The widespread divorce from empirical reality into ‘inner’ spiritual realms of belief were based on the Vedic scriptures as formulated (and then written) by an ‘anonymous author’ (see Summer Showers at Brindavan 1974, p. 34) .

Sathya Sai Baba claims he created the universe!

In the scanned quote at the head of this page, we see another incredibly bizarre statement of Sai Baba’s about how 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 the Vedas… and further, both those nations were defeated. The Japanese were defeated by the superior weapon, which today’s ruling Indians (“Bharatiyas” who were believers in Sai Baba too, like Narasimha Rao, President Kalam and other) have now also developed and tested as a challenge to Pakistan. See Sai Baba and India’s atomic arsenal. Neither the Allies nor Russian derived one fig of nuclear weapon  information from the Vedas! How come the Indians didn’t either!

Sathya Sai Baba has 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.

Sathya Sai Baba’s hunger for international recognition

Posted by robertpriddy on November 20, 2008

Dr. Michael Nobel - black sheep of Nobel Prize

Dr. Michael Nobel - black sheep of Nobel Prize

Among various attempts by Sathya Sai Baba, his organization etc. to get him international recognition and awards, are two most embarassing incidents, embarrassing for a person who claims to be the Omnipotent Creator of the Universe and MUCH MORE TOO! These incidents were:-

1) Sai Baba’ own announcement that the man who awards the Nobel Peace prize was visiting him! (See extensive coverage of this below here)
2) The failed attempt to sneak a Duke of Edinburgh Award for Sathya Sai Baba – much publicised by his chief propagandist Dr. G. Venkataraman see here.

Sai Baba used a known imposter to pretend he’d get a Nobel Peace Prize!
Sathya Sai Baba ill-concealed desire to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize was backed by Prime Minister Vajpayee’s Indian Government!  The hope for this was strongly hinted at by the Sai Baba himself, saying: in his 18 November 2001 Discourse “They are giving the Nobel Prize to many people. The man who gives the Nobel Prize is coming here on the 22nd November. The ones who will show this to the whole world, TV people, are all coming here on the 22nd.” How could Sanathana Sarathi publish such embarassing ignorance? Doubtless because the editors do not yet realise to what extent Sathya Sai Baba has – due to his own words and actions – become notorious in wider world, not famous.

Sathya Sai official webpage promotion of imposter Michael Nobel

The Times of India reported (24-11-2001) making massive factual errors: “Dr Michael Nobel, Head of the Nobel Institution and Director, Worldspace, told the Times of India, the things that Baba has done is simply amazing and this channel will spread his message to the world. He said there would be an explosion of his teachings. I am confident it will have a lasting impact. Dr Nobel said the channel now offers the reach to take his message to billions in the world.”

The imposter “Dr. Michael Nobel”

Michael Nobel is neither the son nor the grandson of Alfred Nobel but is his great grandnephew. He is not the Head of the Nobel Institution – was actually an executive of a foreign company contracted by the Sathya Sai Organization to set up the ‘Sai Global Harmony’ satellite radio station! In short – he was in the pay of Sai Baba. More than that, he has been rejected as an imposter by the genuine Swedish Nobel Foundation (see Wikipedia) quote: “Michael Nobel was born as Michael Oleinikoff. Michael’s father Sven Oleinikoff changed to his mother’s maiden name Nobel, and subsequently, so did Michael. Michael has (as of June 2008) not abide by the advice of the Nobel foundation and the Nobel family head, but continues his efforts to establish a new prize in his own (taken) name. Furthermore, on the 10th of October, 2008, Michael Nobel gave a talk, where transcripts of his speech falsely attributes him to be representing the “Nobel Peace Foundation”.

But despite this billions of the world population remain in blissful ignorance of Sathya Sai Baba and his message today, as can be seen by the virtual total lack of coverage in current serious – or even popular – media [outside India, where Sai devotees actually rule the country]. Dr. Michael Nobel is involved with the administration of an appeal body supported by some Nobel Peace Prize Laureates. to collect funds for peace purposes. This is in no way connected to any Nobel Prize-giving Committee. Dr. Michael Nobel and the organization he promotes received a hard rap over the knuckles as follows: “…the organizers received a disturbing fax from The Nobel Foundation in Sweden. It advised them that Mr. Nobel had been voted out as head of the Nobel Family Society at a meeting in August of 2006 “mainly because of his unauthorized activities and involvements in the name of the Nobel Family Society.” And it threatened legal action against those involved in creating “The Dr. Michael Nobel Award”, as Mr. Nobel had indicated it was to be named.” (The Nobel Prize that Wasn’t – New York Times)

No ‘man gives the Nobel Prize’ – only the Norwegian Nobel committee does
The Nobel Peace Prize award is the sole preserve of the Norwegian Government. Famously, the cosmopolitan Alfred Nobel would not trust his countrymen (the Swedish authorities) with such a task and ensured that a Peace Prize Committee was to be elected by the Norwegian Government, their decision being final. Norwegian professors of philosophy are the only persons allowed to forward a candidate (apart from national States). The Norwegian Committee have been informed privately about the dark sides of Sathya Sai Baba and his shady involvements, and the 1 hour Danish documentary ‘Seduced’ about Sathya Sai Baba’s fraudulence and the sex abuse allegations was shown three times on prime time on Norwegian National Television (NRK).

The moral standing of anyone who may receive the Peace Prize must be beyond suspicion and crispy clean to a degree which Sathya Sai Baba is most certainly not (involved in murders and their cover-up, widely accused of sexual abuse of young men and minors. Further, how could the Norwegian Nobel Committee award it to anyone who supports those of the Indian Government who vastly increase militarism in their arms race with Pakistan and China and are developing their nuclear arsenal? Sathya Sai Baba’s patronage during 20 years in his ashram of the ‘father’ of India’s atomic bomb (Dr. Bhagavantam, deceased) and his warm personal and public support with the designer of the latest nuclear delivery missiles are disqualifying facts in themselves.

Sathya Sai Baba worshipped by India’s P.M.s etc.

Posted by robertpriddy on November 18, 2008

Time for Indian Government leaders to take to their senses:

The Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, and his Minister for Home Affairs (Shivraj Patil) are known devotees of Sathya Sai Baba of Puttaparthi, who they visit and show the utmost respect. A man who has for decades repeatedly claimed he is God Incarnate (which is illegal in India anyhow), Sathya Sai Baba clearly stated (or example) on the BBC film ‘The Secret Swami’ that he created 3-ton golden lingam (size and shape of an egg) within his stomach and regurgitated it (though it was clearly seen to be a faked show and the lingam was then placed on a flimsy table without it collapsing!). Is it not time for these supposedly educated people to begin to examine the many facts about the ignorance and deceptions of this imposter “Creator of the Universe”? While this preposterous unspoken embarrassment to intelligent Indians and visiting statesmen from non-Hindu countries persists, how can its leaders really be taken by the world to be seriously responsible people?

Nothing can absolve Sathya Sai Baba from having been involved in the gruesome murder incidents in his bedroom apartment in June 1993, where he fled his apartment and stood nearby and never intervened to save the four who were executed by the blackmailed police. None of the six murders were ever cleared up because his followers, then Prime Minister Narasimha Rao and Home Minister S.B. Chavan quashed the CBI investigation when it began to near a result (See here).

Neither this – nor many substantial sex allegations against Sathya Sai Baba – stopped the Indian Government under A.B. Vajpayee – a long-term devotee himself –  from proposing him for the Nobel Peace Prize! Such wishful ignorance of international standards of judgement is near incredible by a Prime Minister who defended Sai Baba without have made the slightest investigation of the massive evidence (as proven by B. Premanand’s tortuous correspondence with the dissembling authorities see Premanand challenges Vajpayee to come clean. 

The practice of human values and the moral standing of anyone who is seriously considered for the Nobel peace Prize must be impeccable, and it is laughable that Sathya Sai Baba actually believed he would get it, as he made totally ill-informed claims that a certain Dr. Nobel was the many who gave it out was visiting him (he is the great grandson of Alfred Nobel and has no role in any Nobel Prizes whatever! See here)

Sathya Sai Baba (mostly passively) supports the vastly increasing militarism and nuclear arsenal of the Indian Government through patronising the designer of atomic weapons (Dr. Bhagavantam, deceased) and hobnobbing in most friendly fashion in public with the designer of the latest nuclear delivery missiles.

Shivraj Patil is a regular visitor to Sathya Sai Baba – see for example  here

India’s prophesied future world leadership?

Posted by robertpriddy on September 23, 2007

Excerpt from Conversations with Sai Baba

The total transformation of India as an engine, not only of economic growth, but also as a shining moral example to the peoples of the world which would regenerate them all and introduce a new Golden Age has frequently been promised by Sathya Sai Baba, such as to the credulous Dr. J. Hislop of the USA. Sathya Sai Baba is India’s top living religious figure, who is worshipped by most of India’s Prime Ministers and Presidents since Indira Gandhi up to the present day (see some of Sai Baba’s preposterous claims here!).

Judge for yourself whether Sai Baba’s prophesies are proving to have ANY results. Consider how India has developed a major nuclear arsenal and a huge military machine – a threat to its neighbours. Does this give India the moral high ground? So much for the much vaunted non-violence policy and the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi, on which most of India’s fame rested once! The social and economic inequality in India, despite its considerable present wealth, equals or surpasses anything on the globe today… and it denies many basic human rights to many of its minorities. Is this morally defensible?

We read; “India has had nearly 60 years free of famine, growing enough food for its 1.1 billion people. Yet nearly 40 percent of its vegetables rot in warehouses before reaching market. The country has a space program – yet 30 percent of the population lives on less than $1 a day; 78 percent on less than $2.” [Christian Science Monitor]. This leading US newspaper also comments on how much has been written about the incredible strides India has taken since 1991, when it opened up its markets to foreign investors and slashed regulations. A 6 or 8 % growth rate for a decade has made India attractive to investors, and the outsourcing and high-tech industries. However, the reverse side of this coin is that this economic progress is NOT benefiting 80% of India’s population. It is reported that “a growing number of foreign diplomats, Indian academics, and businesses warn that the booming growth will fizzle unless India acts soon to spread the benefits to a wider population and boost investment in roads and airports, electricity and water, and basic education.” One might mention the lack of public toilets throughout most of the cities and villages (except the open spaces, that is!) and the incredibly low levels of hygiene for the vast majority of Indians (which also stops any really effective tourist growth). What my friend V.K. Narasimhan famously wrote once still applies, the vast majority of the population have no social support of any kind, other than the sunlight!

Sai Baba and India’s atomic arsenal

Posted by robertpriddy on September 17, 2007

India’s ballistic nuclear missiles
Sathya Sai Baba’s hypocrisy is to say one thing, do the opposite

Few issues show Sathya Sai Baba’s hypocritical double-standard more distinctly than his various statements of the past against atomic weapons, while all the time he has been supporting and honouring some of India’s formost militarists. In former days he argued that India needed no nuclear weapon, and made the prophesy that all those nations which rely on these will themselves be turned to ashes! He gave the so-called “father of India’s atomic bomb”, Dr. S. Bhagavantam a foremost place in his entourage, until Bhagavantam left him in the early 1980s! Since then he has repeatedly honoured the instigator of the India-Pakistan nuclear arms race, former Prime Minister Atal Vihari Vajpayee and his party (the Bharatiya Janata Party which revelled in 2000 in the explosion of Indian nuclear devices). Not a word of criticism has Sai Baba made about the vast military spending of this and other governments, nor – of course-  has he criticised India’s production of more atomic weapons and the delivery vehicles. On the contrary, he has embraced the ex-President Kalam at repeated interviews and honoured him very pointedly in public, but this was the man who designed the delivery vehicle for India’s nuclear weapons capable of hitting Pakistan!

Sathya Sai Baba preaches peace and non-violence, so he could hardly have been in favour of nuclear weapons, especially when India was taking a moralistic line against the big nuclear powers (despite having exploded one device already themselves). Now that India is adopting a big power threatening capacity itself with nuclear weapons, he is completely silent! Not only that, he is ever lending moral and propaganda support indiscriminately to Indian governments and their leaders in his discourses. Here we see that Sai Baba’s main agenda is to gain personal power, influence and money regardless of any any moral price. See more detail and documentation here.

>Here are some of Sai Baba’s former statements about atomic weapons. In the first he has talk about the very same difference between preaching and practice evident in his words and actions! That is chutzpa!
Sai Baba on practice and preaching
Sai Baba rejects atomic bomb

But many, many more crores are now being wasted, but the self-proclaimed ‘Omnipotent’ Lord God, worshipped as such by a line of feet-kissing Prime Ministers never says a word about this militarism and misuse of India’s riches, while 200 million have to get by on less than US$ 1/2 per day and 800 million Indians still live on less than $2 a day!

India and Pakistan celebrate independence, still at stalemate

Posted by robertpriddy on August 15, 2007

India-Pakistan face-off

This absurd and demeaning charade where Indian and Pakistani soldiers must strut like adversarial fighting cocks formalises the impossible stalemate situation sustained throughout by the governments and backed respectively by Muslim and Hindu religious leaders – despite the horrific massacres of Partition, two wars and a most terrible regular death toll in Kashmir. The conflict has led to the ever-increasing militarization of both countries and even a nuclear arms race.

Religious strife was the key to Partition.
Religious differences remain the scourge of the Indian sub-continent. It is mainly a Hindu-Muslim issue, though Sikhs and other denominations are party to the issues. Pamela Mountbatten, daughter of Lord Mountbatten, interviewed on BBC World (Hard Talk) this week, was asked what her father would have thought of India since Partition. She expressed the opinion that he would have deplored two things above all else: the sheer betrayal of constitutional promises to the rajputs, maharajas and independent states by Indira Gandhi during the 1970s Emergency and the Hinduization of the Indian Government, contrary to both the letter and spirit of the Constitution. In short, India is only a secular state on paper, but is dominated almost totally by Hindus, who suppress all religious, tribal and other non-Hindu minorities in every way they see fit.

Sathya Sai Baba shows he is powerless to intervene
One may ask why has Sathya Sai Baba – who claims to be all-powerful and all-knowing – never visited Pakistan?  He has annexed to himself the name of the saint (Sai Baba) of Shirdi, who always made great efforts – often successful – to remove strife and create unity between Hindus and Muslims. Sathya Sai talks glibly of unity of faiths but is himself the epitome of a Hindu guru – claiming to be God Incarnate and an avatar. Sathya Sai Baba has often demonstrated his ignorance of the tenets of other world faiths, and he does so most grandly as to Islam. No orthodox Muslim can ever accept an avatar or God Incarnate, for it breaks with the most fundamental tenet of their faith – that Allah is beyond all forms and can never be incarnated or even represented in a human form. No wonder that Sai Baba has but a small handful of followers who (confusedly) claim to be Muslims. Yet the Indian Government embraces him and totes him to surrounding nations as their ‘national treasure’! Sathya Sai is worshipped as the embodiment of all the Hindu deities and is overwhelmingly surrounded by Hindus and Hindu ceremonials and cultural traditions. How can he ever have been so ill-advised as to claim he would rule the world one day?
