Falsehood and infamy – Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on July 5, 2010

“There are some jealous and petty minds who do false and imaginary propaganda. I take no note of this”

but Sai Baba noted that he does notice… just there!
He sees the need to combat what he knowing lies is ‘imaginary propaganda’ and so he must have been moved to notice it to respond like this! All can see that Sai Baba badly wants to limit the damage to his movement and especially to foreign donations.

“In the single family of humankind, where is the room for jealousy or hatred? These are all imaginary.”
I suppose Baba means among Arabs, terrorists, the most jingoistic Americans perhaps? He is still offering the pseudo-philosophy of ‘whatever you imagine, is true for you’. This may be an effective way of influencing those who can’t face the staring facts… and so choose to follow that old, old trick of mental enslavement, ‘The guru is never wrong, doubt only yourself!’

A frequently repeated complaint by Sathya Sai Baba, parroted by devotees, is that he has through the years been charged with unfair and undocumented accusations of many kinds. Both by sceptics and disaffected followers. These latter he fatuously claims were ‘dissatisfied’ or disappointed by unfulfilled expectations as to getting his, Sai Baba’s attention. Not so at all – not a few of these apostates could never wish to see him, [let along touch him, after what they have learned about him]. Sai devotees call the critics ‘disgruntled’, when many are righteously disgusted and disillusioned by having found him out for what he is – a major deceiver and an impure person, according to over 30 young mens’ testimonies of sexual molestation by him.

His cowed defensiveness towards all who have left him is seen when he churns out his usual illogical defence against criticisms:
“Stones are thrown only on fruit-bearing trees. Similarly, good people receive brickbats.” (Sanathana Sarathi September 2002, p. 267)

But some people who do very bad things receive more brickbats and deserve them! Sai Baba overlooks that the ‘bad men’ of whom he himself sometimes speaks (mainly in interviews) also sometimes receive brickbats. He is certainly a case in point!

In Sanathana Sarathi (11-92, p. 261) we read, “The minds of the so-called devotees are turned in the wrong direction. If their desires are fulfilled, they praise Me. But, once a desire is not realised they go to the extent of even reviling me. Even while they are attempting to understand Me, they harbour doubts from head to foot. Some even leave me, when their worldly desires are not fulfilled.” He also took the transparent precaution of warning devotees that he will have to separate “the grain from the chaff”, as if it were his own plan that devotees who cease to believe or accept him are rejected by him firstly! So he is not at all so powerful as he claims and maybe actually sometimes imagines.

One cannot but note that such precautionary smokescreens are most convenient for those who know they have something to hide. Much that will not stand the light of day has already come to light and his reputation is fading as the word spreads. No follower has not heard some of the reasons, however much they run away mentally from the facts (and knowing more such facts). This is the very nature of longer term mindless ‘surrender’ and blind servility and sacrifice to a God-figure whom they hope upon hope may help them out and deliver them from whatever bad may be to come.

Sathya Sai Baba defends himself by saying he predicted this all along. He KNEW he would be found out eventually because of the sheer scale and depravity of the abuses of which he stands accused and from which he hides from prosecution behind his many devotee judges and Prime Ministers.

Sai Baba loses his cool and lies blatantly about his critics!

See the entire infamous and unforgiving Christmas Day 2000 Discourse here.

The present writer was unable, for obvious reasons, to sustain faith in Sai Baba’s statements or many of his much-blazoned activities. I have come to know that he is by no means infallible, nor is it remotely possible that he all that he claims to be. He seems to possess so-called paranormal powers, which many others have done (and often people of a non-spiritual nature). Further, he has dark sides of which even some very frequent interviewees have no knowledge. Though I have never myself noticed sexual behaviour on his part, the evidence from many countries through decades has piled up to an extent where abuse cannot seriously be denied.

Major contradictions about ‘Divinity’ and more

Posted by robertpriddy on December 11, 2009

In a discourse in January 1995, Sathya Sai Baba said: “The good and evil in the world are expressions of Divine consciousness. Man should not be misled by these expressions. Behind all the various actions of the actors, the Divine Director is at work.” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol.28 new ed., p.1)

Since Sathya Sai Baba has many a time proclaimed himself to be the Divine Director of everything – and if he is therefore responsible in any way for anything good that occurs – he must also be equally responsible for all the so-called ‘evil’. This is the classic and unsolved dilemma of all those who believe in an omnipotent God. For how could he (she or it) be good and at the same time create or ‘direct’ evil actions? To say that whatever this supposed ‘incarnation’ does is an expression of divine consciousness simply avoids the problem with more empty talk. He also states that “none are free from the taint of evil” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol 3., p.4). At the same time, yet more confusedly, he has sometimes also denied that anyone is either good or bad… or that good and bad even exists at all. In accepting he is behind everything – but is only pure and good in every way, while humans are responsible for ‘evil’ – Sai Baba shows his Janus-face along with many other kinds of duplicity.

Is there only a spark in everyone, or is everyone and everything God ?

Sai Baba often takes two contradictory standpoints [all the better no doubt to draw in more people of differing opinions or beliefs]. Though he has long supported and endlessly proclaimed the ancient Hindu teaching that there is divinity in everyone, his position is not at all as it seems. Among his many incompatible claims… he holds that every person, as well as every single living being, has a spark of the divine within. Much more than this, he often proclaims that everyone and everything IS God, nothing but God, nothing less! If it is not blindingly obvious that this is confused and confusing empty talk, one should click here to read why in more detail. If this were not enough contradiction, he has gone on to pronounce that certain people – those who criticize him – do not even have a spark of the divine in them. with “… a hard-hearted person cannot be called a spark of Divinity; he is verily a demon.” p. 323, Sanathana Sarathi, November 2002

The ‘spark of the divine’ notion is – obviously – in no way an original idea of Sathya Sai Baba – it is found in many Hindu writings before him and is also found widely outside Hinduism. It has become popular among many so-called ‘New Age’ thinkers and self-styled gurus and is even found in corporate culture, books on how to succeed and to lead. It is not an observable fact, of course, and is ultimately no more than  religious imaginings – though the divinity of human beings in any shape or form other than being made in the image of God (if that) is not accepted in most mainstream religions and sects.

Sai Baba has constantly tried in countless ways to make devotees dependent on him so that through him they can supposedly discover their own ‘divinity’. The methods vary from constant prayer to him, repetition of especially his name (as most propitious in this age), singing his name and his self-attributed ‘Glories’, plus worship of himself (written “worship of the Divine Form”). He willingly accepts adulation and worship… and has let countless thousands touch his feet in obeisance. This only leads to one becoming less self-dependent, less able to see one’s own divine nature in any way independently of “Him” Not surprisingly he denies all free will (except for himself), dislikes all independence of himself and ridicules self-reliant thinkers, independent scholars, and genuine intellectuals.Yet sometimes he admits that human beings do possess a degree of free will… for they can choose either to act righteously or not so, and so on. All in all, he gives a pick-and mix a la carte menu of a cacophony of standpoints… everyone can find something they like (and they ignore or forget the rest which clashes). This is typical of many religious organizations – believe what you want!
