Sathya Sai Baba followers in education and science

Posted by robertpriddy on January 19, 2009

Much is made of Sathya Sai Baba followers who are said to be ‘educationalists’ and  ‘scientists’, and not a few of them – especially the Indians, who are the clear majority in these categories, always add a string of letters after their names. In Sai Baba literature and lectures they are often called ‘prominent’ , but their prominence is invariably limited to Sai Baba circles and not the world scene, where none have high profiles – if any at all.  In short, no world-class or genuinely famous scientists nor any major figure in the humanities or even literature have declared their faith in Sathya Sai Baba. Former science workers who still support him are more likely to adhere to the ideological misconceptions Sathya Sai Baba promotes as ‘Saience’ (to replace ‘science’)  rather than world scientific consensus (such as his main propagandist today, the former physicist G. Venkataraman (see links at foot of page).

Why is there a total absence of scientific or pedagogic discussion – let alone peer reviews – at anything like a professional level in any of the publications by these known followers of Sathya Sai Baba? Why are no references ever made to international educational bodies’ findings or official governmental reports, academic studies, or the work of any known and respected professional pedagogues and educationalists worldwide? Further, why are there virtually no names of scientists or educationalists genuinely well-known and regarded as authorities in their professions outside the circle of Sai Baba devotees? The answer, Sathya Sai Baba is the infallible source of all knowledge and wisdom for all followers and no other information is needed! But his is highly fallible and repeatedly demonstrates crass ignorance of science, history an even religions.

Not one head of any independent University in the world has endorsed Sathya Sai Baba educational ideals or programmes, and – as is well known – a branch of UNESCO withdrew from a planned educational conference under the auspices of Sathya Sai Baba at Puttaparthi once they had investigated what this involved. (See UNESCO’s warning on Sathya Sai Baba here)

Not one Nobel laureate is known to be a follower, as far as can be discovered. Incidentally, Sathya Sai Baba has been forwarded as a candidate for the Nobel Peace prize by the Indian Government, obviously without result, of course. He made clear his  hopes that he would receive it from Dr. Michael Nobel, a grandson of Alfred Nobel, but a person who the Nobel Committee has denounced. See Sathya Sai Baba’s hunger for international recognition

One name formerly brandished by Sai followers was Dr. Bhagavantam, because he was a developer of the Indian atomic bomb, though he is not a noted discoverer in world science. However, even Dr. Bhagavantham  left Sathya Sai Baba after two decades of being one of the guru’s right-hand men. The reasons for his departure have been obfuscated by present followers, but he became critical and went of his own accord years before his death, never to return.

Deception against Sathya Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on June 4, 2008

Sathya Sai Baba deceived by a Swedish imposter, Dr. Michael Nobel

Both his vaunted ‘omniscience’ and any plain common sense he has left failed when Sathya Sai Baba proudly announced how his own majesty had drawn Dr. Nobel to him, the relative of Alfred (who was claiming he was able to award four new Nobel Prizes). How come Sathya Sai Baba did not know he was a man of false credential, later to be totally discredited in the world media?

In his discourse of 18th November 2001, Sathya Sai Baba said the following:-

“They are giving the Nobel Prize to many people. The man who gives the Nobel Prize (Chairman of the Nobel Prize Committee) 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.

Who called them? Who invited them? If all things like these are seen, all sorts are coming here. No one has invited them at all. No one is giving them a (special) welcome. Yet they themselves are coming. What is the reason? That Chaitanya Jyothi (meaning Swami Himself) is here and It (He) is pulling them! (Applause)” (see the literal translation by Sai students here) Note: The red italic text in parentheses is supplied by the translators)

Sathya Sai Baba actually believed that Dr. Michael Nobel is “the man who gives the Nobel Prize“! Such ignorance of the Nobel Prize – that is it given by one man – a distant relative of Nobel – is quite stunning! The actual and very worldly reason he came to Sathya Sai Baba was a fat contract for setting up the Radio Sai outfit!

Translation of the Swedish News Bulletin:-

NOBEL WAS A DECEIVER

The arrangers of a nano technology conferance in the USA believe that they were witness to a world news sensation and that they had received the honour of awarding four new Nobel prizes. But only days before the conference they got to know that they had been swindled by a relative of the Nobel family.

One can well imagine the arrangers’ enthusiasm when the conference Nano TX 07 was contacted by Michael Nobel who wished to announce four new Nobel prizes for alternative energy technology.

Everything was ready, according to Swedish Radio. Press releases for the world’s media at full steam. In short, every exhibition arrangers’ wet dream – a world scoop.

Imagine their disappointment when they were contacted by the Nobel Foundation, who stated that Michael Nobel is a genuine Nobel family member but that he has no right whatever to take the kind of initiative as creating four prizes for alternative energy research.

The Nobel Foundation considers it an infringement of copyright, misuse of the good will and prestige the Nobel Prize has and say to the (Swedish) radio that they are going to take legal action.

The arrangers of the nano conference in the have in all haste both cancelled the announcement and banned Michael Nobel from partaking in the conference.

Michael Sohlman of the Nobel Foundation told the (Swedish) science radio programme that there exists absolutely no plans to institute new prizes in Alfred Nobel’s name.

How could Sathya Sai Baba have been taken in so thoroughly?
Well, who else but such a person surrounded only by sycophants (who never dare correct him) could fall into such a trap as to believe that a distant relative of Alfred Nobel may secure the Nobel Peace Prize for him? One would have thought that someone among all the treasured professors, PhDs, and scientists in his cadre would have realised this and warned him off, but then there is not one internationally known or prestigious doctor or professor among them all – the majority of them being deluded devotees who cannot face all the facts that have emerged and/or pseudo-intellectuals who are hoping for a leg up in the world from the influence of his mini-empire.

Despite such an indictment of Dr. Michael Nobel and an imposter by the Nobel Foundation, the Sathya Sai oficial website still promotes him. He also takes it upon himself to speak “in the name of mankind” and thank his employer, Sathya Sai Baba . See screen capture of their propaganda here:-
