Michael Nobel praises Sathya Sai Baba but is badly misrepresented

Posted by robertpriddy on October 10, 2009

Dr. Michael Nobel is the great grand nephew of Alfred Nobel who founded the Nobel Prize. Dr. Nobel is also the Chairman of THE APPEAL OF NOBEL PEACE LAUREATES FOUNDATION. Below are extracts from a TV interview he gave to an Italian producer.

The above is stated on the web page http://sathyasaibabaspeaks.blogspot.com/2009/03/from-puttaparthidr-michael-nobel-on.html. However, Dr. G. Venkataraman chose NOT to heed the plea which the writer of a comment (Umberto Frascati) makes – on behalf of Dr. Michael Nobel – to remove this false statement! See here:-

To G.V. Venkataramam from Umberto Frascati Milano Italy SAI RAM.. please read the message from Dr, Michael Nobel requesting the correction as in his text…
Umberto,
I am urgently requires your help as you have an important position in the Sai Baba movement. Looking at the following address: sathyasaibabaspeaks.blogspot.com/2009/03/from-puttaparthidr-michael-nobel-on.html you see I am listed as the Chairman of THE APPEAL OF NOBEL PEACE LAUREATES FOUNDATION. This is a complete inaccuracy and causes me a lot of ill will. Please do me a great favour and have the webmaster of the Sai Baba organization remove this as soon as practically possible. If necessary (which I do not believe) he can replace it with “chairman of the Nobel Charitable Trust”.Thank you in advance for your valuable help in this matter and please let me know the outcome of your contact with him or her.Best personal regards
Michael Nobel

Comment: The “valuable help” was not forthcoming and the advance thanks were misplaced.

Not only that, but Dr. Michael Nobel was presented by Sathya Sai Baba – the self-appointed “omniscient” God as the man who awards the Nobel Peace prize was visiting him! See here: Sathya Sai Baba’s hunger for international recognition!!

SAI-SinghThis year again there is no mention of Sathya Sai Baba as one of the candidates, but we may rest assured that the Prime Minister of India – Manmohan Singh, who is a longer-term foot-worshipping Sai devotee, ensured that his name was submitted as in past years by former P.M. Vajpayee.

Sathya Sai Baba’s hunger for international recognition

Posted by robertpriddy on November 20, 2008

Dr. Michael Nobel - black sheep of Nobel Prize

Dr. Michael Nobel - black sheep of Nobel Prize

Among various attempts by Sathya Sai Baba, his organization etc. to get him international recognition and awards, are two most embarassing incidents, embarrassing for a person who claims to be the Omnipotent Creator of the Universe and MUCH MORE TOO! These incidents were:-

1) Sai Baba’ own announcement that the man who awards the Nobel Peace prize was visiting him! (See extensive coverage of this below here)
2) The failed attempt to sneak a Duke of Edinburgh Award for Sathya Sai Baba – much publicised by his chief propagandist Dr. G. Venkataraman see here.

Sai Baba used a known imposter to pretend he’d get a Nobel Peace Prize!
Sathya Sai Baba ill-concealed desire to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize was backed by Prime Minister Vajpayee’s Indian Government!  The hope for this was strongly hinted at by the Sai Baba himself, saying: in his 18 November 2001 Discourse “They are giving the Nobel Prize to many people. The man who gives the Nobel Prize is coming here on the 22nd November. The ones who will show this to the whole world, TV people, are all coming here on the 22nd.” How could Sanathana Sarathi publish such embarassing ignorance? Doubtless because the editors do not yet realise to what extent Sathya Sai Baba has – due to his own words and actions – become notorious in wider world, not famous.

Sathya Sai official webpage promotion of imposter Michael Nobel

The Times of India reported (24-11-2001) making massive factual errors: “Dr Michael Nobel, Head of the Nobel Institution and Director, Worldspace, told the Times of India, the things that Baba has done is simply amazing and this channel will spread his message to the world. He said there would be an explosion of his teachings. I am confident it will have a lasting impact. Dr Nobel said the channel now offers the reach to take his message to billions in the world.”

The imposter “Dr. Michael Nobel”

Michael Nobel is neither the son nor the grandson of Alfred Nobel but is his great grandnephew. He is not the Head of the Nobel Institution – was actually an executive of a foreign company contracted by the Sathya Sai Organization to set up the ‘Sai Global Harmony’ satellite radio station! In short – he was in the pay of Sai Baba. More than that, he has been rejected as an imposter by the genuine Swedish Nobel Foundation (see Wikipedia) quote: “Michael Nobel was born as Michael Oleinikoff. Michael’s father Sven Oleinikoff changed to his mother’s maiden name Nobel, and subsequently, so did Michael. Michael has (as of June 2008) not abide by the advice of the Nobel foundation and the Nobel family head, but continues his efforts to establish a new prize in his own (taken) name. Furthermore, on the 10th of October, 2008, Michael Nobel gave a talk, where transcripts of his speech falsely attributes him to be representing the “Nobel Peace Foundation”.

But despite this billions of the world population remain in blissful ignorance of Sathya Sai Baba and his message today, as can be seen by the virtual total lack of coverage in current serious – or even popular – media [outside India, where Sai devotees actually rule the country]. Dr. Michael Nobel is involved with the administration of an appeal body supported by some Nobel Peace Prize Laureates. to collect funds for peace purposes. This is in no way connected to any Nobel Prize-giving Committee. Dr. Michael Nobel and the organization he promotes received a hard rap over the knuckles as follows: “…the organizers received a disturbing fax from The Nobel Foundation in Sweden. It advised them that Mr. Nobel had been voted out as head of the Nobel Family Society at a meeting in August of 2006 “mainly because of his unauthorized activities and involvements in the name of the Nobel Family Society.” And it threatened legal action against those involved in creating “The Dr. Michael Nobel Award”, as Mr. Nobel had indicated it was to be named.” (The Nobel Prize that Wasn’t – New York Times)

No ‘man gives the Nobel Prize’ – only the Norwegian Nobel committee does
The Nobel Peace Prize award is the sole preserve of the Norwegian Government. Famously, the cosmopolitan Alfred Nobel would not trust his countrymen (the Swedish authorities) with such a task and ensured that a Peace Prize Committee was to be elected by the Norwegian Government, their decision being final. Norwegian professors of philosophy are the only persons allowed to forward a candidate (apart from national States). The Norwegian Committee have been informed privately about the dark sides of Sathya Sai Baba and his shady involvements, and the 1 hour Danish documentary ‘Seduced’ about Sathya Sai Baba’s fraudulence and the sex abuse allegations was shown three times on prime time on Norwegian National Television (NRK).

The moral standing of anyone who may receive the Peace Prize must be beyond suspicion and crispy clean to a degree which Sathya Sai Baba is most certainly not (involved in murders and their cover-up, widely accused of sexual abuse of young men and minors. Further, how could the Norwegian Nobel Committee award it to anyone who supports those of the Indian Government who vastly increase militarism in their arms race with Pakistan and China and are developing their nuclear arsenal? Sathya Sai Baba’s patronage during 20 years in his ashram of the ‘father’ of India’s atomic bomb (Dr. Bhagavantam, deceased) and his warm personal and public support with the designer of the latest nuclear delivery missiles are disqualifying facts in themselves.

International awards and Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on July 12, 2008

Sathya Sai Baba has never won any recognised international award. Yet it was made known that his ‘holy’ name was submitted by Vajpayee’s Indian Government for the Nobel Peace Prize (politically naive and doomed from the start!). Firstly, Sathya Sai Baba supports those who have been vastly increasing the militarism and the nuclear arsenal of India, not least by patronising the designer of atomic weapons (Dr. Bhagavantam, deceased) and the designer of the latest nuclear delivery missiles – President Kalam. Despite this, some inconsequential relative of Alfred Nobel (who thus bears the same surname) has pronounced that Sai Baba ought to get the Nobel Prize, which suggestion followers trumpeted to the firmament repeatedly. A pathetic attempt to draw attention to their self-proclaimed God Incarnate, who – despite all the billions of dollars in hand – has not made one inch of progress in getting international recognition from any serious institutions. UNESCO has – as is well known – washed its hands of him and has since it posted its advisory on him never accepted invitations to partake in his self-glorifying ‘conferences on education’.

Sathya Sai Baba as Nobel Peace Prize Candidate The human values and moral standing of anyone who is seriously considered for the Nobel Peace Prize must be impeccable. However, Sathya Sai Baba has been more widely accused of sexual abuses in public than any comparable figure, but the Indian Government, being led by devotees of Sai Baba, has successfully quashed all court petitions against him – so far! Moreover, he was present to the murder of six of his devotees within his private apartment in June, 1993 and the case has never been cleared up, no court proceedings and politically quashed Indian Central Bureau of Investigations case! The Nobel Committee has been fully apprised of these facts and – even were it to regard Sathya Sai Baba as having done anything to forward peace in the world other than to preach – the unresolved murders and uninvestigated sexual abuses would sink his candidature in advance. Then there was his warm appreciation of Dictator Idi Ami… just the ticket for a Nobel Peace Prize winner?

Satya Sai bogus representation by Sai officials

Satya Sai bogus representation by Sai officials

“Every man should show his sense of gratitude to society by rendering selfless service. It was for this purpose that the Seva Organization was started. But even here the Seva Organizarions are being used to promote one’s name and fame and not to render service for its own sake.” (Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol. 30., p. 122).

World-wide publicity but no world-wide recognition The Sathya Sai Organisation worldwide, however, puts great effort into spreading the name and fame of Sathya Sai. Just witness the number of websites extolling him by official Sathya Sai Organisation centres! Virtually all group meetings are primarily for praising Sathya Sai through devotional singing (bhajans) and talking about him to newcomers, holding public meetings to spread his name and his word! The inevitable conclusion is that it is Sathya Sai baba above all others who uses the Sathya Sai Organisation to promote his name and fame!

How Sathya Sai Baba was deluded into thinking he would be able to get the Nobel Peace Prize!

Sathya Sai Baba as Nobel Peace Prize Candidate

Posted by robertpriddy on June 3, 2008

Hunger for top international recognition of Sathya Sai Baba thwarted

Sathya Sai Baba ill-concealed hope of being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize was backed by Prime Minister Vajpayee’s Indian Government! The chance of this was strongly hinted at by the Sai Baba himself, saying: in his Discourse
“They are giving the Nobel Prize to many people. The man who gives the Nobel Prize is coming here on the 22nd November.

Michael Nobel is neither the son nor the grandson of Alfred Nobel but is his great grandnephew. He is not the Head of the Nobel Institution – was actually an executive of a foreign company contracted by the Sathya Sai Organization to set up the ‘Sai Global Harmony’ satellite radio station! In short – he was a paid contractor for the promotion of Sathya Sai Baba. But despite this billions of the world population remain in blissful ignorance of Sathya Sai Baba and his message today, as can be seen by the virtual total lack of coverage in current serious – or evenDr. Michael Nobel - black sheep of Nobel Prize popular – media [outside India]. Dr. Michael Nobel is involved with the administration of an appeal body supported by Nobel Peace Prize Laureates to collect funds for peace purposes. This is in no way connected to any Nobel Prize-giving Committee. Dr. Michael Nobel and the organization he promotes received a hard rap over the knuckles as follows:

See (The Nobel Prize that Wasn’t – New York Times )

The Nobel Peace Prize award is the sole preserve of the Norwegian Government. Famously, the cosmopolitan Alfred Nobel would not trust his countrymen (the Swedish authorities) with such a task and ensured that a Peace Prize Committee was to be elected by the Norwegian Government, their decision being final. Norwegian professors of philosophy are the only persons allowed to forward a candidate (apart from Nation States). The Norwegian Committee have been informed privately about the dark sides of Sathya Sai Baba and his shady involvements, and the 1 hour Danish documentary ‘Seduced’ about Sathya Sai Baba’s fraudulence and the sex abuse allegations was shown three times on prime time on Norwegian National Television (NRK). There was also his warm appreciation of Dictator Idi Ami who Sai devotees falsely claimed agreed with Sai Baba to delay the expulsion of the Indian population from Uganda. Nor did visits to Sai Baba by the convicted Italian prime minister Bettino Craxi or the mafia backer Italian PM Andreotti help much. This sort of reputation is surely just the ticket to sink a Nobel Peace Prize candidate without trace?

Sathya Sai Baba was inextricably involved in a gruesome murder incident in his bedroom apartment in June 1993, which was never cleared up because his followers, Narasimhan Rao and S.B. Chavan quashed the CBI investigation when it began to near a result and stopped a Supreme Court petition. Neither this – nor many other substantial sex allegations against Sai Baba stopped the Indian Government under A.B. Vajpayee – a long-term devotee himself – from proposing him for the Nobel Peace Prize. Such isolation from international opinion and values is an indictment of ex-Prime Minister Atal Vihari Vajpayee and his cronies who defended Sai Baba from all allegations without have made the slightest investigation of the mass evidence (as shown beyond any doubt by Basava Premanand’s correspondence with the authorities (see here: Premanand challenges Vajpayee to come clean)

Sai Baba with A. Kalam

The moral standing of anyone who may receive the Peace Prize must be beyond suspicion and crispy clean. How could the Norwegian Nobel Committee award it to anyone who supports the vastly increasing militarism and nuclear arsenal of the Indian Government? No way! Sathya Sai Baba does so through his patronage during 20 years in his ashram of the ‘father’ of India’s atomic bomb (Dr. Bhagavantam, deceased) and his warm personal and public support with the designer of the latest nuclear delivery missiles – ex-President Abdul Kalam
