Sai Baba promised vast miracle soon

Posted by robertpriddy on July 1, 2008

Sathya Sai Baba illustrationIt is remarkable how Sathya Sai devotees and Organization leaders and members carefully avoid repeating two of his predictions of an incredible miracle of mythological proportions within his lifetime (apart from a few utterly gullible followers on the lunatic fringe) and another impossible feat which he has promised he will perform. These are yet two more far too embarrassing facts about him for his supporters to have to defend, one must assume? Sathya Sai Baba is now around 82 (minus 3 years, according to official records), so there can’t be long to wait to see! Here is the text published in Sathya Sai Speaks (new ed. Vol. 3, p. 92):-

“Let me tell you one more thing: Nothing can impede or halt the work of this Avathaara… Formerly when the Govardhanagiri (mountain) was raised aloft by a little boy, the gopis and gopalas realised that Krishna was the Lord. Now, it is not one Govardhanagiri, a whole range will be lifted, you will see!”

When dharma declines or rather, when those who have a duty to regulate their lives according to dharma lose faith in it, then, its restoration cannot be taken up by all and sundry… The Lord has come again on this Mission. He has collected the engineers and contractors and the labour for this purpose. He is not set on the task.”Let me tell you one more thing: Nothing can impede or halt the work of this Avathaara… Formerly when the Govardhanagiri (mountain) was raised aloft by a little boy, the gopis and gopalas realised that Krishna was the Lord. Now, it is not one Govardhanagiri , a whole range will be lifted, you will see!” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 3, p. 92 – new edition)

The world will doubtless also gasp and faint to see him flying bodily through the sky without an aeroplane

“I will have to forego the car and even the aeroplane when I move from place to place, for the crowds pressing around them will be too huge; I will have to move across the sky; yes, that too will happen, believe Me.” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. II, p. 92)

So will you take him at his word and believe him? NOT advisable, risky indeed in almost any circumstance! But, if it were not just bluff, then the world will doubtless gasp and faint to see him flying bodily through the sky without an aeroplane. Perhaps the image shown below gives some very rough idea of how he might appear?

How soon is ‘very soon’? How will divine power differ from any other power?

According to David Jevons of the Ramala Centre, Glastonbury, writing in 2000, Sai Baba “has recently said that we will very soon witness this divine power manifesting in the world. I quote from a recent discourse: ‘Many events are going to take place very soon. Many mega projects are going to come up. The time is not far off when people will see me at different places at the same time. I may be travelling in a car, but at the same time I shall be giving darshan at Sai Kulwant hall and at the same time I shall be speaking at the Hillview Stadium.'” (http://www.ramalacentre.com/newsletter09_00_01.htm)

The main event as regards Sathya Sai Baba that has occured since 2000 is that his reputation in the eyes of the world has gone irretrievably down the drain. Interestingly, his reputation is aggravated further by the virulent fanaticism of those in total denial who defend him by obviously untruthful and ridiculous attempts at character assassination of all critics of Sai Baba.

Global disaster predicted – or not?

Posted by robertpriddy on June 26, 2008

At Ootacamund in Karnataka in the 1970s, Sathya Sai Baba is reported by various Indian devotee parents of eighteen (very frightened) students there as having made a large number of predictions about a coming global catastrophe. These predictions were similar in several respects to those made by Edgar Cayce and numerous others since. The globe as it may appear has been presented as something like the illustration shows:-Possible changes to the earth after catastrophe

One list made after the allegedly coming events, which were widely and sometimes insistently claimed by some ashramites to actually have been made to their sons (some of whom were crying and fearful when they told their parents), were circulated constantly for over a decade or more without Sathya Sai Baba having stopped the mill or refuted a single word. (If he did not know about the anxiety created, then he lied about being omniscience). If he did know, then it was convenient for him… the anxiety to urge people to secure themselves places at the ashrams with donations etc. to be safe from the catastrophe.

Only when the hysteria reached potentially damaging proportions (for his name and credibility) after his officials had repeatedly asked him to comment – in early 1991 – did Sathya Sai Baba eventually deny the catastrophe predictions he had allegedly made. Why would he have made them to young students? One likely hypothesis is that it was one of his oft-reported ways of cowing them so they would fear to speak out about such matters as the constant genital molestations which are so widely reported, even confirmed and defended by a series of leading office-bearers in his Organisation. There are numerous documented examples of his acting so as to create fear in his officials, students and other followers. One can read the full prophesies here and see a scan of the paper most circulated for 15 years here.

The claims that the predictions actually came from Sathya Sai Baba are reinforced by the fact of his other similar predictions in public, as noted above. These new ‘warnings’ also served to induce people to ‘buy into’ the ashrams where they assume they will be under divine protection from any such dangers (but get no property rights or guarantees whatever in return).

GODS OF GODS ABOVE ALL GODS – SATHYA SAI?

Posted by robertpriddy on September 6, 2007

The One God of all religions?

Even if you believe only half you hear, you are in deep trouble with the following claims by Sai Baba. Will he go down in history as the Saviour of Mankind from global disaster (as he claims) and human evil? If so, he would necessarily displace Jesus Christ and Christianity, Jehova and Judaism, Buddha and Buddhism, Islam and Allah and Whoever and Whatever? One must certainly hope not – if only for the sake of human rationality and progress in empowering people to improve their lot and that of the world rather than become fixated in prayer to God and his traditional “teachings” about fate and the futility of worldly engagements. His many deceptions – so firmly demonstrated here and elsewhere – and his bogus  “universal religion” are accepted by a long line of Indian Presidents and Prime Ministers – and also by those of today and much of the Indian Government! It is an enigma… for can they truly believe in the following words of Sathya Sai Baba? They must… or else they’d have to view him as a megalomaniac.

“I am all deities in one. You may endeavour your best for thousands of years and have all mankind with you in your search. But you cannot understand My Reality.”US ed. of Kasturi’s Sathyam Sivam Sundaram Vol 3 page 315)

“There was no one to understand Me until I created the whole world”(Official biographer N. Kasthuri’s direct quote in ‘Pathway to Peace’ p. 64.)

Sathya Sai Baba said in 1968: “This is a human form in which every Divine entity, every Divine principle, that is to say, all the names and forms ascribed by man to God, are manifest… You are very fortunate that you have the chance to experiences the bliss of the vision of the form, which is the form of all gods, now, in this life itself.”(Sathya Sai Speaks Volume VIII. page 99f)

“God can do anything. He has all power in the palm of His Hand. My Body, like all other bodies, is a temporary habitation; but, My Power is eternal, all-pervasive, ever-dominant.”Christmas Day Discourse, Bombay 1970. ed. of Kasturi’s Sathyam Sivam Sundaram Vol 3 page 136)

 “On previous occasions when God incarnated on earth, the bliss of recognising Him in the incarnation was vouchsafed only after the physical embodiment had left the world, in spite of plenty of evidences of His Grace. But, ponder a moment on this Sathya Sai Manifestation; in this age of rampant materialism, aggressive disbelief and irreverence, what is it that brings to It the adoration of millions from all over the world? You will be convinced that the basic reason for this is the fact that this is the Supra-worldly Divinity in Human Form.” (Sathya Sai Baba 17/5/1968. Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 8, p 100)

 “If I had come as Narayana with four arms, they would have put me in a circus, charging money for people to see Me. If I had come only as a man, like any other man, who would listen to me? So I had to come in this human form but with more than the human power and wisdom.”(US ed. of Kasturi’s Sathyam Sivam Sundaram -Vol 3 page 309)

Further, on the task of the revival of dharma, he says “… who has to take it up? It was said that I have taken up this Form in answer to the prayers of sadhus (noble souls) and others… I have come, because I felt I had to come. I resolved upon this… This campaign will succeed, it will not fail. The welfare of the world will be ensured through the fostering of the Godly everywhere, and more particularly of these ancient reservoirs of the ancient wisdom of this land.”(Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 3, page 205)

“The Lord is the refuge of all who seek refuge, the saviour of all who have to be saved. He is the Embodiment of Being-Awareness-Bliss (Sat-chit-ananda). He is now at Puttaparthi as the Effulgent Emperor over the region of Truth, Goodness and Beauty.” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. XIII, p 114)

“When dharma declines or rather, when those who have a duty to regulate their lives according to dharma lose faith in it, then, its restoration cannot be taken up by all and sundry… The Lord has come again on this Mission. He has collected the engineers and contractors and the labour for this purpose. He is not set on the task.”Let me tell you one more thing: Nothing can impede or halt the work of this Avathaara… Formerly when the Govardhanagiri (mountain) was raised aloft by a little boy, the gopis and gopalas realised that Krishna was the Lord. Now, it is not one Govardhanagiri, a whole range will be lifted, you will see!” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 3, p. 106)

Sathya Sai Baba made it up as he went along

Posted by robertpriddy on August 27, 2007

Hillcoat on Rita Bruce - Russian forum

Sathya Sai Baba heralded in “The Golden Age” of mankind and jumped the gun several times. (see The Golden Age (Sathya Yuga)  or here, or  here.) He supposed himself to be the precursor of such an age, and – as often documented – it will begin by his reforming India completely first, then the rest of the world. Sai Baba has told people on occasion that a great shift in human consciousness will come – he did so before the millennium (but nothing happened, not even the millennium bug – thereafter Twin Towers and the war on terror began).

Rumours circulated by Sathya Sai Baba at regular intervals of big changes coming (sometimes disasterous ones!) kept devotees in suspense and/or hope for the future, and still does with those in deep denial of his crimes. Remaining devotees are  incapable of looking back across all the failed predictions and direct lies Sai Baba perpetrated over the decades. For example, the New Zealand devotees, Poppy and Arthur Hillcoat, visited Cherepovets Russia in May, 2005. Poppy said she saw Rita and Robert Bruce just before leaving for Russia, and – as reported on the Russian Forum (screen capture above) – was told by them (LITERAL TRANSLATION):

“Yes, exactly they are. At the conference Rita and Robert conducted a one-day workshop of ‘parenting school’ and a workshop on ‘family and marriage’.
I do not remember exact titles. And it was Rita Bruce whom Swami told about practically instant transformation of people’s consciousness after his 80th anniversary.”

(The infamous ‘Hislop letters’ on sexual abuses of young men by Sai Baba were sent to US Sai-VIPs including Robert and Rita Bruce! Both are in total denial of all the facts they have encountered but ignored so as to “keep their faith”) continues to mislead people around the world by repeating truly absurd claims made to her by Sai Baba in the privacy of the interview room.


Sathya Sai Baba had the stick by the wrong end

It is most likely true, as Herbert Marcuse has said, that “A prerequisite of social transformation is the emergence of a new consciousness” But this did not happen as predicted after the 80th Birthday (of course), nor after his death in 2011. It can only be a gradual process along with diverse social changes, proper economic planning to lift people from poverty, sickness, ignorance and not least also superstitious beliefs and spiritual guru-dependencies. It will surely require very much increased national and also personal ‘green awareness’ and action on the very pressing issues of ecology, over-exploitation of natural resources, pollution of the earth, air and water and climate change (global warming).
Maneka Gandhi,Vandana Shiva, Arundati Roy still remain far too peripheral to Indian policy-making. Sathya Sai Baba’s contribution to raising awareness of ecological issues is minimal and mostly ill-informed – claiming that the inner workings of Divinity are where it all happens – as already noted on this blogsite.

Sai Baba prophesies he will lift “a whole range of mountains”!

Posted by robertpriddy on August 11, 2007

govardhanakrishnaHanuman’s exploitsmoregovardhana

As one can see from the quotations below, Sathya Sai Baba continually repeated the fantastical mythical events from Indian scripture as being historical fact. This is but one of many statements he made where he presented what are ‘stories’, myths and legends in a way which lead his uneducated and unsuspecting countrymen to believe in them as literally true. He spoke of Krishna’s lifting a mountain to protect his devotees from a flood of rain as historical fact! Worse than that, he made the famous statement in a discourse – published and checked by himself – that he too would lift – not one but a whole range of mountains:-
SaiToLiftMountains

When dharma declines or rather, when those who have a duty to regulate their lives according to dharma lose faith in it, then, its restoration cannot be taken up by all and sundry… The Lord has come again on this Mission. He has collected the engineers and contractors and the labour for this purpose. He is not set on the task.”Let me tell you one more thing: Nothing can impede or halt the work of this Avathaara… Formerly when the Govardhanagiri (mountain) was raised aloft by a little boy, the gopis and gopalas realised that Krishna was the Lord. Now, it is not one Govardhanagiri , a whole range will be lifted, you will see!” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 3, p. 92 – new edition)

Indeed, we have seen that this did not happen! Some are still waiting for him to come back and do it, poor souls!
