Sathya Sai Baba’s political protégés and VIPs

Posted by robertpriddy on October 3, 2011

While still in the Sathya Sai Organization, we from Oslo were continually forced to notice that Sai Baba attracted not only good, sensible and pure persons, but also many of poor understanding and personal ambition (whether one called it ‘spiritual ambition’ or raw desire for special blessings, privilege and power). The people Sai Baba chose as his VIP’s (a group I avoided and never wanted to join, despite offers) were mostly either disagreeable or outright obnoxious self-important and pushy persons. Those persons have all remained followers, except those who have died.(I can firmly exclude Kasturi, Narasimhan and Mr. Hejmadi and a few other UK leaders from the bad VIP category!). When VIP’s behaviour and underhand dealings, embezzlement and worse were pointed out to him by some courageous person at an interview, he would say that they were ‘shades at the foot of the candle’ or that he kept them close because he wanted to control them… and further named them ‘VIPers’ (always raised a laugh, that!). The fact is that they had all shown that they would do his bidding whatever it was, would never question or doubt anything whatever… always hoping it would benefit themselves, no doubt. He had once nurtured his devotee like despot Idi Amin and also the criminal Italian President, Craxi, as well as saving the corrupt Indian PM Narasimha Rao from conviction and a long sentence… to name just some of the best known instances.

As India Today reported: “From Indira Gandhi to P.V. Narasimha Rao to A.B. Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh, almost every prime minister paid obeisance to Sai Baba. It has been a routine affair for Presidents of India – from Shankar Dayal Sharma to Abdul Kalam and Pratibha Patil – to visit Puttaparthi and spend time with him.”

All part of the more or less highly corrupt nest-feathering elite of India whose system is now being challenged by Anna Hazare and a large segment of India’s population! Against Mahatma Gandhi’s revered principle, Sathya Sai welcomes ‘blood money’ and even sat through in a public announcement of donors giving at least one crore at his 70th Birthday celebrations (such as Bhangarappa, a known corrupt Karnataka politician, who gave ten million rupees, and two famous Indian ‘liquor barons’, one of whom, Mr. Reddy, was murdered in Madras in 1996 only a week or so after a personal visit by Sai Baba accompanied by V.K. Narasimhan). His involvement with corrupt politicians is well documented – he reportedly saved Narasimha Rao from prison (Rao fled to his feet with thanks as soon as the verdict came). Tit-for-tat, N. Rao and A.B. Vajpayee protected him from prosecutions.

Altogether, a wide assortment of impostors and many very pushy and self-centered people of virtually all degrees sought Sai Baba in the hope of thriving under his banner. I shall report on some of the more successful charlatans in a blog tomorrow.

Swami Nithyananda scandal – jail, no bail

Posted by robertpriddy on April 23, 2010

Swami Nityananda is seen on a video caressing an Indian actres on a bed etc.s accused of sexual

Swami Nityananda, trying to cover up the sex video evidence, contradicting himself time and again

Having fled the arm of the law to the Himalayas, Nithyananda has been caught and removed into custody in Bangalore, awaiting trial (along with several of his associates). He is charged under section 295 (a) – deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious belief. See here. Important documents have and large sums of money have reportedly been seized.

Swami Nithyananda’s break of trust with his estimated 2 million ‘followers’ is very serious. He is another bogus ‘godman’ among the many in India, and that he has been jailed without bail is itself a positive step in that it shows that Indian civil society is not entirely without power to punish false gurus and protect the gullible from investing their energies and money is him and all the otherworldly promises on which he can never deliver.  Many Indians have spoken out against gurus to an unprecedented extent as a result of the Nithyananda scandal.

However, at the same time it, Nithyananda’s influence – though the numbers claimed are doubtless vastly inflated – are as nothing besides the megalomaniac claims of Sathya Sai Baba. If anyone deserved to come under legal scrutiny it is  Sathya Sai Baba, whose involvement in cold-blooded murder of four devotees was covered-up by the Indian Government (CBI investigation quashed totally through former Indian Home Minister S.B. Chavan and Prime Minister Narasimha Rao). Then there is the infamy of Sathya Sai Baba’s known sexual molestation (i.e. genital oiling of young men in private on their private parts, accepted as ‘spiritual healing’ by many of his officials) and further the mass of worldwide allegations of his outright perverse sexual abuses that often follow on genital ‘anointing’. (See interview on this to the BBC Khushwant Singh: genital oiling, lingams, followers etc.)

Such comments are the following brief sample occur on diverse Indian discussion boards, blogs etc:

Hi everybody,
I just wondering whether the people who is going behind Saibaba have stopped going to his places after the Nidyanantha scandal! But unfortunately, NO!
It happenned after Premananda Swami, it’s happenning after Nidyanantha swami, and will go on………. like this until every individual get experienced themself. If they allow cameras inside the Saibaba’s places then you can have plenty of videos like this one.
GOD has no intention to come through or on a human to give his messages. If GOD is there then he is everywhere, you can just talk to him, pray him, admire him, thank him and ask him. GOD is not going to give you pleasure because you paid donation to Nidyanantha.
People, please THINK AGAIN!
