Sathya Sai prophesied as ‘king of the world’ from 2000

Posted by robertpriddy on December 18, 2008

Prophecies supposedly made before Sathya Sai Baba’s birth (as early as sage Brighu around 3000BC) have been promotes as true on a large scale for decades in books and now web pages. None  which name him became public until AFTER the points mentioned in it were very well known in India at least, such as are presented in the alleged Islamic prophecy reproduced below.  The source claimed for it, a volume from a series of apocrypha after Mohammed (incorrectly called “Mehdi Moud” by saibabaofindia.com, for it was supposedly called ‘Ocean of Light”) was originally claimed to have been found in a street market by devotee Irani Ma – has never been traced, yet the Sai Baba museum (Chaitanya Jyoti) also continues to propagate the prophesy. No Muslim scholars or muftis so far approched have ever heard of this volume. All this should be sufficient to rate this prophesy as being a sheer invention. Some devotees will invent anything to obtain some prominence and importance!

Satya Sai Baba himself has never refuted any detail of these predictions but has bolstered them up more or less directly in many ways, both in countless discourses and interviews. Evidently, no follower of his has written a single critical thought about any of them. That is enough to show that this is a blindly gullible and propagandist cult without self-analysis of any serious kind. It will never stand up in the world of genuine historical scholars. The saibabaofindia web site quotes:-

(d) In an ancient Arabic book by name “Mehdi Moud” in which the prophesies made by Prophet Mohammed were recorded many centuries ago, it was mentioned that God Himself would descend on earth in human form with the following signs by which He could be recognised:

“His hair will be profuse. His front teeth will be spaced apart. He will have a mole on His cheek. He will not have beard but will be clean shaven. His clothing will be like flame. He will wear two robes. The colour of His face will sometimes be like copper, sometimes yellow like gold and sometimes like the moon. His legs will be those of a young girl. All the teachings of all the religions of the world will be in His heart from birth. All the science and knowledge of the world from the beginning of time will be in His head. He will give gifts that are light in weight, His devotees will crane their necks to see Him. He will live for 95 years on earth. In the last twenty years of His life time He will be the king of the whole world but at that time (A.D. 2000) only two-thirds of the world will believe Him. Muslims will only recognise Him nine years before His passing away from the world”. (My underlining)

All physical details are more or less recognisable, but all the teachings of all the religions of the world are most certainly not in his heart… he is ignorant of much of the Bible (as has been demonstrated at length)  and had to ask a Jewish devotee Al Drucker whether there was and difference between Judaism and Christianity! He has made only a very few and ver superficial statements about Buddhism and Islam… this is just for a start.

What is rather surprising is how the Sai Baba misinformation machine still continues to exhibit the alleged prophecy of kingship and historically unsurpassed world fame, long after the time having come and gone without him being anything remotely like “king of the whole world”. Now that the prophecy has been shown to be completely false, only the devotee lunatic fringe continues to believe in it. .. or support the massively exorbitant opinion that two-thirds of the world population believed in him from year 2000! If Sathya Sai Baba dies when he predicted he would (aged 92 or 93) then next year we would expect Muslims to flock to Puttaparthi in vast numbers to see their Mahdi. Wait, wait, wait and see!

Sai Baba caught in cheating about the Christian Bible

Posted by robertpriddy on August 21, 2007

false claim about a Bible by Sai Baba    On-line offer of the little Bible

Sathya Sai Baba pretends that this is a very special tiny Bible – which he was claimed to have “materialized” during his Christmas Discourse in 1996 (but did not let anyone inspect it and it was seen no more after the discourse). Now the reason for its “disappearance” is obvious… for it is on sale in many shops, and can also be bought on-line as in the above capture of details from the website.In fact, this Bible contains nothing but a selection of texts from the Old and New Testaments, including all of the four gospels. >However, that is not at all what Sai Baba claimed it to be:  “a book compiled in Britain around 1530 A.D. containing all the information about Jesus gathered during the preceding centuries. The Russians condensed all the material in a small book [in which language?] which they preserved in a place on the Black Sea coast [not named].”  (Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol. XXIX, p.394). The official report continues: Svaami produced the little book by a circular wave of His hand and held it before the audience.] “This is the book. You can see the cross on the cover page. The book was designed to demonstrate the common features of all religions. What is contained in this book is not to be found even in the Bible. It contains an entirely new account of the life of Jesus.” [Bold type added].

This last claim is a complete and utter calculated lie, for it contains no such thing whatever! Someone had obtained a copy and given it to him, no doubt, and – assuming that his followers would automatically believe he had materialized it – he invented a cock-and-bull story about its origin. Did he not carry out this charade – this adharmic cheating – to try to attract more Christians to his sheepfold and give his lagging followers a bit of news, which they always crave?

The researcher Brian Steel writes: “Apart from Sai Baba’s three conflicting descriptions of the book’s contents, this is a most disturbing performance because on a video of the ‘materialisation’, Baba merely seems to pluck the miniature book (2 and a half centimetres by 3 and a quarter) from below the ledge of the table he is leaning on. Photographs of Baba holding up the tiny book were immediately circulated in Puttaparthi. One of these is on the cover of the Spanish edition of the January 1997 issue of Sanathana Sarathi Eterno Conductor) for that same month. However, the mysterious book appears to be nothing more than a copy of the “Good News” edition of the New Testament, freely and cheaply available in India, and overseas. (See Chapter 6)  [Of Sathya Sai Baba: God or Guru?]” ( Check Steels’ webpage)

Creationism, God the Creator

Posted by robertpriddy on June 18, 2007

In the two-part film ‘The Aura of Divinity’ by Richard Bock (ca. 1976) about Sai Baba, he is there reported as having said: “Today evil is so widespread that humanity would be destroyed in a nuclear holocaust in the event of a world war.It is to prevent such a catastrophe that this avatar has come to raise human consciousness and save the world from disaster.” Aura of Divinity, Part One.

When Sai Baba was asked how the universe was created, he spoke of the eternal divine principle: “There was no one to know who I am till I created this world at my pleasure with one word. Immediately, mountains rose up. Immediately, rivers started running, earth below and sky overhead. Oceans, seas, land and watershed. Sun moon and desert sand came up from nowhere to prove My existence. Then came all forms of mankind, animals, birds… hearing, speaking and flying. The first place went to man and My knowledge was put into his mind.” from ‘The Aura of Divinity’ Part Two.

See also scan from Kasturi’s ‘Loving God’ where Sai Baba corrected his translator Kasturi claiming he was not just the creator of the world but was the Creator of the Universe

It so happens that the above words were voiced by Prof. N. Kasturi, Sathya Sai’s official biographer. They are actually a selectively edited (bastardised) version of an important part of the Veda, which are scriptures of great antiquity claimed by most Indian spiritual leaders to be at least 10,000 years old. If so they predate not only the Bible, but also the biblical (and the Kentucky Creationist Museum) account of the Creation (supposedly only 6,000 years ago).

That Sathya Sai Baba was a creationist, and held that he was the Creator Himself is beyond any question as it is published in the book of his official biographer, Professor N. Kasturi. The scan above on the right is from the biography of his close devotee. Kasturi, who summed up the extent of SB’s claims of Godhead.

…in a discourse, Baba said: “It is beyond you to know how or why I create things. The objects that I create, I create them by my will, the same way I created the universe.Quoted in ‘The Week’ 27th November, 20065. (NOTE: ‘Beyond you’ here referreds to Mr. H. Narasimhaiah, the former Vice Chancellor of the Bangalore University, who has requested for an interview so as to check the facts about how Sai Baba created things.)

Bt comparison, the world’s first creationist museum in Kentucky is small beer, but worth noting. It claims:
Remember, before the sin of Adam, the world was perfect. All creatures were vegetarian.” Yes, Tyrannosaurus rex was vegetarian and lived beside humans. Grand Canyon park guides state that the canyon took more than a million years to form and cuts through rocks that span more than a billion years. “Young Earth” creationists say no to that, saying the rocks were all left behind by flood waters at the time of Noah. Admitting the Bible does not mention dinosaurs as such, Ken Ham supposes that dinosaurs were still around at the time of the flood. He figures that two of each may have been taken onto the Ark (newly hatched ones which are fairly small). But he thinks Noah did not carry kangaroos to Australia because the flood waters caused the continents to drift apart very fast. Mr Marsh considers the fossilised remains of man’s ancestors to be falsifications: “There are no such things. Humans are basically as you see them today. Those skeletons they’ve found, what’s the word? They could have been deformed, diseased or something. I’ve seen people like that running round the streets of New York.”
