Sathya Sai Baba condemns his critics as “demons”

Posted by robertpriddy on November 9, 2010

from Sathya Sai Baba’s angry, pulpit-beating ‘discourse’ on (but in the spirit of?) Christmas Day, 2000.

The inset image is a scan of part of Sathya Sai Baba’s official journal Sanathana Sarathi with an excerpt from his infamous Christmas Discourse, 2000. Those who regard him as an ‘apostle of love for every living being’, and as ‘a friend in India to all the world’ (Keith Bradsher) should examine what he says in some detail.

The accusatory discourse had an effect on me at the time since I was considering whether to look at the allegations or not. “Today many people are jealous of Sai” and “neither will the undertake any good activities themselves” he said. I never was (and am definitely not now) in the least jealous of Sai Baba or anyone else, and I worked hard doing many kinds of social service in his Organization for 18 years, also donating large sums of money… and the same applied to many I knew who soon left him. I decided to investigate the criticisms at last and soon began to draw some unexpected conclusions about him.

In calling his critics “demons” he made a complete break with all his previous soft talk about love and the divine spark in every living being (which he suddenly denies to his critics, the many young men who testified to being sexually abused by him). This discourse helped convince me that I had to investigate and begin to look much more carefully – even critically – at the evidence. His wild, unfounded accusations also helped me realise the sham that his teaching really is. It took me months, but once the spell was broken, I progressed further and further to discover how I had gradually become deeply affected by subtle and powerful self-programming and rejection of doubts and ‘unkind thoughts’ (especially about Sai Baba himself!) through the entire indoctrination Sai Baba promotes. He had previously stated that “none are free from the taint of evil” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol 3., p4). 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. Those who have thoroughly investigated the teachings of Sathya Sai Baba realize how he has deceived his followers about his true nature and actual behaviour. His actions belie his words and so he cannot even be a reliable spiritual guide, let alone a divine, omni-benevolent and omniscient Godhead! He evidently hoped his adharmic (i.e. unrighteous) actions would be covered-up, and huge efforts were and are being made by his minions and supporters to do just that!

The record to date shows, however, that Sathya Sai Baba’s self-described “glory” has not “gone on increasing day by day”. It has diminished in the eyes of the world (foreign devotees have dropped away in huge droves) and he is a wheelchair-bound invalid who very seldom smiles and who is actually reported by close servitors as crying much of the day! (and see video clip here)

Among the elite of Indian politics, many worship Sathya Sai Baba. One small example: in an article in the International Herald Tribune, the Indian pundit Shashi Tharoor actually endorsed Sathya Sai Baba as a genuine miracle maker and virtually all-knowing person – see more here.

Scan from book by Professor N. Kasturi about Sathya Sai Baba

The gullible, uncritical official biographer of Sathya Sai Baba, Professor N. Kasturi, shows how total was his delusion.

Consider this claim – reported by Kasturi – of Sai Baba to have created every one of us… it makes Sashi Tharoor’s  look extremely gullible in his support for him, in company with PM Manmohan Singh, President Pratibha Patil and a host of other top figures in the government, judiciary and Indian society. That relatively simple sleight-of-hand (clever misdirection of attention being central to this) can fool otherwise observant people is no unusual matter.

In his Xmas rant, Sai Baba’s identification of himself with the Jesus story is preposterous (he claims to be the Father who sent Jesus to earth!), shown by his branding his critics as ‘Judases’. At that time I was a follower still, but I soon joined up with those upright and brave people who dares to speak out against this person who has even presided over and covered up murders and executions in his own bedroom. Not exactly an “unshakeable resolve to serve humanity”, one might say! Besides, he evidently had the common incorrect about Judas and the ‘ten pieces of silver’, which much new research shows was not at all as it has been presented. The money was simply a standard exchange at the time, Judas having not betrayed Jesus in fact, but reportedly negotiated with the Romans on Jesus’ request. So much for Sai Baba’s much trumpeted “omniscience”… a man who even pronounced that Moses loved Jesus!

Sathya Sai Baba – kindness and thankfulness

Posted by robertpriddy on July 16, 2009

“We should help even those who have harmed us. This is the vow of Sai. No matter if some people criticize or ridicule Me, I will always look at them with kindness. (Sanathana Sarathi June 2002, p. 166). “There are many who are hostile towards Me. Many ridicule or criticise Me.” (ibid)

First thing to note, Sathya Sai Baba has NEVER done anything to help his critics, that is certain. He has several times strongly implies they have harmed him, so to “help even those who have harmed us” is just his empty words! However, most of his critics have merely pointed out the facts about him which he and his cronies have tried to hide, using suppression, bribery, political clout, clandestine activities and even the infamous murders in his won bedroom  to silence all opposition.

Further comment on Sathya Sai Baba’s discourse 6-5-2005 [Note that the ‘Me’ in the top quotation is always with a big ‘M’, as per usual! As in ‘Me and Mine’!]

He also says most unsympathetic things about many people, not least Indian and other politicians but also his devotees and anyone who acts from greed, wanton desire and many other motives. So one may say he sets an example as being a virulent critic of those who do wrong.

Many of us are like Sathya Sai Baba in looking on our detractors with varying degree of tolerance – even sympathy (such as for for their delusional disorders), so there is really nothing so amazingly unique about Sai Baba if he sometimes thinks kindly about critics (which we bear in mind even though he has called them many bad names). He also often roundly disparages – and also ridicules – people in his discourses ( and in group interviews!).  Note: Sai Baba also called his accusers Judases and demons! Yes, he actually believes in demons, as well as literally in 14-feet high men like Rama, and ogres too – as he told in the most popular book by J. Hislop ‘Conversations…’!)

“See how much help Swami is giving to the poor and needy. It is all for their welfare. But some people are not at all realising the value and are not grateful for it. (ibid p. 166). How can one who boasts that he owns nothing, give anything? It was given via  Sai Baba by many well-meaning, good people, and not by him as such. But he has to boast and rub it in again and again. Why? Instead, he berates foreigners for giving indiscriminately, as follows (in original discourse, edited out of Sanathana Sarathi).

“Today all the foreigners are distributing money, distributing money, distributing money, and they are making the country of Bharath very low.” This is yet another preposterous and sweeping false statement about India by Sathya Sai Baba! In the original discourse he also waffles on about someone who became the US President, but without naming him, Lincoln is evidently intended. But what he says about Lincoln’s politics towards the black population demonstrates very basic ignorance of the facts.

Sai Baba’ actually advises a form of deception, “You cannot always oblige, but you can always speak obligingly”. This quite simply also means to pretend that one is obliging when one actually is not! It is to mislead and is ‘bad faith’.He is obliging at times, but – contrary to this – his discourses are packed with harangues against others of all kinds.

Most of Sai Baba’s  critics now care little or nothing as to what he thinks of them. At the same time, he clearly takes pleasure in pointing out how much his critics will suffer, in this instance for example, by saying “Hurting someone who has helped you will result in losing your eyesight”. Not only is this a sheer absurdity, but it is a threat to those unfortunates who believe he is all-powerful. He has implied that he is hurt (eg. said he puts up a smiling face despite heavy criticism), even though he later says, “none of it will reach me”. But much of it did get to him most certainly, rousing him into making awful threats against his detractors in his angry, lectern-thumping, and infamous Christmas Day Discourse of 2000 Such unforgiving talk from this self-promoting ‘God the Father’ on the birthday of the all-forgiving Jesus Christ! Was this conscious insult to Christians or mere ignorance of their creed? Forgiveness is above all the value par excellence of Christianity.  and did not figure at all in the traditional Indian spiritual value system, as far as I can discover. We see how Krishna was for war and blood at Kurukshetra. When Hindus like Ramakrishna embraced the Jesus figure, forgiveness became an occasional value in some Hindu teachings.

So Sathya Sai Baba continues to speak with two tongues, and still within one and the same discourse. This is not so surprising from a dual entity with a Janus-faced personality – a man (S.N. Raju) who is ‘very human’ (Kasturi’s remark) with all kinds of failings (admitted by many close servitors) – and then a self-proclaimed deity (‘Sai Baba’) from some other realm with what he has called his ‘very fast helpers’ and who tells us that the whole of humanity working together could never understand him! A person whose oft-reputed unmastered lust makes him much more like Ravana than Rama, believe what you will!

Incidentally, I do not set out simply to ‘ridicule’ Sathya Sai Baba – unless that be pointing out what is already ridiculous of itself – though I am certainly criticising him. I am truly only pointing out his self-contradictions, and many discrepancies between his words his actions and his actual observable behaviour. The fact is, Sathya Sai Baba talks so exaggeratedly and acts so otherwise in so many things, that he comes across as ridiculous (to those who are not totally indoctrinated with his excuses and deceptions about everything wrong he does and says – his ‘three ton lingam‘, his ‘magnetic feet attracting the earth to him‘, that he will fly unaided so his devotees can see him worldwide, that he will life a mountain range to save devotees and so on). I also comment critically on all the secrecy and cover-up surrounding much of what he does, and the consequences it all has or can have for truth, good people and social justice. If my deepest conscience did not demand of me to do this difficult service, I would be only to happy to desist. Moreover, I exert considerable efforts to write nothing that is untruthful or unconsidered about Sai Baba.

Book reveals ‘secrets’ of Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on January 29, 2009

In Smt. Vijayakumari’s book “Anyathya Saranam Nasthi” we read about Sathya Sai Baba’s literal belief in disincarnate demons, no less!vijayakumari

Do  demons really exist, Swami?” he replied “Yes! Those who committed suicide,  those killed in accidents, those who met with an untimely death, all these  will be roaming around like ghosts.

Sai Baba also promotes the belief in black magic as a reality, which is bound up with widespread beliefs in India about witchcraft, the evil eye and leads to horrendous killings of supposed ‘witches’.

See full coverage of his statements here.
