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.”

Miracle of Sai Baba saving airplane

Posted by robertpriddy on August 3, 2011

One of the supposed miracles believed in by a majority of Sai devotees was denied as bogus by the US Sathya Sai organization (by Central Coordinator of the South American branch, Leonardo Gutter, who tried to confirm that such a plane problem occurred, without result after contacting all relevant airlines). The photograph is most evidently a put-up job by someone, as professional analysis of it proves.

We are appealing here to all those former donors to Sathya Sai Baba who realise that there had been massive misuse of donations in general, and especially their own remittances made due to promises about monies they have given for apartments by the ashram administrations which were later broken, to contact me or Barry Pittard in confidence.(My e-mail address is available at my main site contact page) THE E_MAIL LINK THERE DOES WORK NOW – IT WAS POSTED FAULTILY EARLIER)

Does Sathya Sai materialize money?

Posted by robertpriddy on March 3, 2009

Here follows a brief excerpt in transcript from the TV documentary ‘LA HISTORIA DE SAI BABA (I)’ as shown in Argentina.  It demonstrates  the extent to which devotees believe in the reality of hearsay. Cristina is the TV interviewer and the Central Coordinator of the South American Sathya Sai Organization, businessman Leonardo Gutter, is the devotee telling the stories:-

TAPE 0063




to 09:69

interview with devotees

De 14:49:10 hasta 15:43:11








Cristina’s eyes:



From 10:00 to 10:15

Baba hands ring to adepts

“Some young men from Argentina went there with one way tickets. He told them to return to their country to live and study. The young men told him that they had no money for the return ticket and Sai Baba stretched his hand an what was amusing was that one kid had to give each a bill…The bills were stuck together, like a photo that has just been developed…and he would give one to each…when he finished distributing them…

Cristina: Are these regular legal bills?

Legal bills. When he finished distributing them, the one he owed 300 dollars to had 300 more than the other one.

Cristina: How can you be sure that the money that Sai Baba materializes is legal?

Well, the people who have received it, has used it and they have not had any problems. They’re legal …

Cristina: But, money has a serial number

It is absolutely incomprehensible. They are absolutely normal…The only difference is that they look as if they had just been made.

The investigator Basava Premanand took Sai Baba’ case to court years ago because of violation of the Gold Control Act that restricts the making, possession, sale and transfer of gold.

Cristina: But where do they come from? If you explain this at a bank, they are going to say that you are laundering money…

It’s incomprehensible… Once, people from the government of India, from the tax department, came to see him because Sai Baba not only materializes money, but precious stones, necklaces, rosaries and then they came to question why Sai Baba makes gifts of these to many people who leave India. Sai Baba gave these two persons an audience. He stretched his hand and in front of them appeared a small mound of precious stones and when the inspectors saw this they fell at his feet and asked for forgiveness…”

Note: This fantasy story has circulated in different guises through the Sai movement’s monkey telegraph… as can be seen here


The Judge at the Court, Y.V. Anjaneyulu, a Sai devotee, rejected the case presented by Premanand because those articles “were materialized through spiritual powers”. See here
