9/11 Twin Towers attack and Sathya Sai Baba’s claimed intervention!

The official Sathya Sai Organization International Chairman Dr. Goldstein affronts the 9/11 victims’ memory by claiming that Sathya Sai Baba intervened to save his members’ lives (but not those of others)!

In a meeting in St. Louis in which Sathya Sai Baba’s birthday was celebrated on the wrong day – namely, 11th September -, the Sai Organization tried to use that terrortist attack tragedy to promote their guru!
Sathya Sai Baba always held that everything is The will of God, and further, that he was the godhead, the Deity even of all deities and often said with “all power is in my hand”. Interestingly, the terrorists who caused the WordlTrade Centre and pentagon disaster were intense believers in God and an afterlife… once can reflect fruitfully on what that implies if one has a truly inquiring mind.

In a live TV programme on Zona de Investigacion (Azul TV, Argentina), Dr. Michael Goldstein is reported on by the Argentinian journalist and TV director, Agnostelli as follows: Dr. Michael Goldstein “gave some news that left the sweating audience mute: “On September 11, the devotees that worked at the Twin Towers and the Pentagon didn’t go to work that day or were late getting to their jobs. Thanks to our beloved Bhagavan,’ pontificated Goldstein, ‘all the New York and Washington devotees are safe.’ I shuddered to think that the public might applaud the news. But nobody did. Baba’s divine powers only benefit those faithful to him, or was this news passed on to avoid more desertions?”

In the same programme, Leonard Gutter, Central Coordinator of the South American Sathya Sai Organizations, said: “Baba’s love encompasses all: There were 50,000 people working at the Towers and only 3,000 died; then Baba saved 47,000, not only devotees. Each person has his own karma: that was the destiny of those who died there.” The TV programme (first part) is transcribed here]

The deluded conjectures by Dr. Goldstein and Leonardo Gutter towards all those whose dear ones died in ther Twin Towers catastrophe and the total lack of judgement and blind faith beyond all reason it expresses is not in the least uncommon among Sathya Sai followers. See more about Dr. M. Goldstein here.

Dr. William Harvey is a member of the top policy-making ‘Prashanthi Council’ of the International Sathya Sai Organization. (Note: He is not to be confused with the US male nurse William M. Harvey, CRNA).  He spoke at the Sai Public Meeting in St. Louis, September 11, 2005, prematurely – and for no valid calendar reasons – celebrating Sathya Sai Baba’s 80th birthday (11/23) and the announcement of the Mayor that 9/11 is officially Sathya Sai Baba day in St. Louis! (see here – if unavailable see here) The report of Dr. Jack Feely, Regional President, Mid-Central Region US stated: “The program was held at the 1904 World’s Fair Pavilion, a magnificent open-air shelter in the center of Forest Park. The 1300-acre park, considered the “Crown Jewel” of the city, was a picturesque setting worthy of a public program about Sathya Sai Baba, the Divine Crown Jewel of the universe. (see here if unavailablesee here) ”The Sai Organization proclaimed that they had sent “personal letters of invitation went out to 49 professors of philosophy and theological studies of the major universities and colleges in the area, followed up with telephone message reminders. Press releases went to the major TV and radio stations, along with the major newspapers. Quarter-page ads promoting the meeting were put in a widely distributed spiritually oriented newspaper. That same paper accepted a 700-page article about Sathya Sai Baba and His teachings.”

Before introducing the speakers, Dr. Jack Feely, regional president, asked the guests to join in a silent prayer for those who lost their lives, were hurt, or lost loved ones during the tragedy of 9/11 four years earlier. Dr. William Harvey, a member of the Prasanthi Council, was the first speaker. He focused his talk on the life and teachings of Sathya Sai Baba. He began his presentation by explaining to the attendees, “It is our belief that viewed from a cosmic prospective there are no accidents and that everything happens for a reason, though it is often not obvious to us at the time. Hence, we can assume that everyone present here today is destined to be here and to be a part of this event.”

Sathya Sai Baba exposed in Argentina

Posted by robertpriddy on November 14, 2008

>Sai Baba, the well known Hindu spiritual teacher, who has a following of millions around the world, is facing charges of sexual abuse. The accusers assert that Baba has made many of his male devotees engage in sexual practices with him. Journalist Alejandro Agostinelli investigated the certainty of these charges. by Alejandro Agnostelli

Under the title ‘Divine Sin’, Agnostelli relates the evidence which emerged in Argentina and was presented on two TV programmes by Azul TV. The Latin American Coordinator of the Sathya Sai Organization, plus the leaders Dr. Michael Goldstein and Dr. William M. Harvey were present as apologists for Sai Baba. They were confronted by Conny Larsson – an alleging victim of sexual abuses by Sai Baba – and others over the sexual abuse of boys young men.

Sathya Sai Baba critics and apologists

The defenders of Sathya Sai Baba made some absurd claims which were never backed up by events – perhaps the chief one of which was that the then US Presidential Candidate, Al Gore, was about to declare his support for Sathya Sai Baba. This would have been MOST unfavourable for him… and he has still not made the slightest mention of Sathya Sai Baba. He must have realised how damaging association with Sai Baba will always be!

It was even claimed that Sathya Sai Baba has assured his devotees that he had protected them from being in the World Trade Centre when the terrorist attack took place! Following this unfounded belief, the US Sathya Sai Organization used all its muscle with prominent figures in St. Louis and Chicago to introduce a Sathya Sai Baba day on September 11. One might think this very significant – that a big city allows a day to be named, but the Mayor’s office told us that over 200 days inSt. Louis were official name days for one or another organization.  In any case, it was a most untactful, distasteful demonstration . How could these people not realise what an outright provocation this is to the families, friends and co-workers of those who died – who Sathya Sai Baba did not deem worthy to be saved – claiming, as he does, to be God Incarnate with complete omnipotence, ruling over life and death and the Universe he has insistently claimed he created!

9/11 anniversary and Sathya Sai Baba’s claimed intervention!

Posted by robertpriddy on September 11, 2007

THE FULLY-DISCREDITED SATHYA SAI ORGANIZATION MADE THE MOST TASTELESS AFFRONT TO 9/11 VICTIMS EVER?

COMPOSITE IMAGE OF TWINTOWERS AND SAI BABA

In a meeting in St. Louis on September 11th (2011)  the Sai Organization tried to use that terrortist attack tragedy to promote their guru!
In a live TV programme on Zona de Investigacion (Azul TV, Argentina), Dr. Michael Goldstein is reported on by the Argentian journalist and TV director, Agnostelli as follows: Dr. Goldstein “gave some news that left the sweating audience mute: On September 11, the devotees that worked at the Twin Towers and the Pentagon didn’t go to work that day or were late getting to their jobs. ‘Thanks to our beloved Bhagavan,’ pontificated Goldstein, ‘all the New York and Washington devotees are safe.’ I shuddered to think that the public might applaud the news. But nobody did. Baba’s divine powers only benefit those faithful to him, or was this news passed on to avoid more desertions?”

Each person has his own karma: that was the destiny of those who died there.”
The TV programme’s 1st part is transcribed here.

The sheer callous indecency of these wild conjectures by Dr. Goldstein and Leonardo Gutter towards all those whose dear ones dies in that catastrophe would be hard to surpass. It shows a total lack of judgement and blind faith beyond all reason, not in the least uncommon among Sathya Sai followers and his defenders (as on the Internet). See more about Dr. M. Goldstein here.


The grotesque hard sell of Sathya Sai as connected to 9/11 in the US

Dr. William Harvey, a member of the top policy-making ‘Prashanthi Council’ of the International Sathya Sai Organization spoke at the Sai Public Meeting in St. Louis, September 11, 2005, prematurely – and for no valid calendar reasons – celebrating Sathya Sai Baba’s 80th birthday (11/23) and the announcement of the Mayor that 9/11 is offically Sathya Sai Baba day in St. Louis! (see here) and see the report of Dr. Jack Feely, Regional President, Mid-Central Region US here)

The report stated: “The program was held at the 1904 World’s Fair Pavilion, a magnificent open-air shelter in the center of Forest Park. The 1300-acre park, considered the “Crown Jewel” of the city, was a picturesque setting worthy of a public program about Sathya Sai Baba, the Divine Crown Jewel of the universe.”The Sai Organization announced at great length its many efforts to get publicity, as in the following short example: “Personal letters of invitation went out to 49 professors of philosophy and theological studies of the major universities and colleges in the area, followed up with telephone message reminders. Press releases went to the major TV and radio stations, along with the major newspapers. Quarter-page ads promoting the meeting were put in a widely distributed spiritually oriented newspaper. That same paper accepted a 700-page article about Sathya Sai Baba and His teachings.”

(Comment: Seven hundred pages seems a bit over the top! It would take 49 philosophy professors to do that job on short notice? But how many attended or supported this scandalous misuse of September 11 to propagandise for an Indian fraud accused of sex abuses and murder cover-up? Ah now, there you have it!). The result has hardly been earth-shaking. Naively and without joking, Dr. Feely informed of the selfless service provided to participants as follows: “ Cold bottled water, served to attendees throughout the program, offered physical comfort that added to the spiritual comfort the speakers’ words provided.”
