The deluded and the delusionists are hard at work trying further to derail one another. It becomes more and more difficult and boring to follow the interactions surrounding the massive schism between those who claim that Sathya Sai Baba is only represented by the Prashanthi Nilayam faction and the Muddenahalli faction who embrace an upstart former intimate student of SB now claiming to be a mouthpiece of Sathya Sai Baba (i.e who is dead, i.e now an imagined spectral Baba). There is a lot to fight for, social influence and even respect by those who one can fool, very considerable financial rewards for those at the top of the strict pecking orders and the justification of their twisted personal beliefs. Meanwhile, the major court case between the two factions has been postponed (next hearing January 29 at Chickaballapur).

One Terry Reis Kennedy enters the fray, a devotee of the original Sathya Sai Baba (and a graduate with altogether confused mystic-religious convictions about Jesus, the Dalai Lama etc..  He attacks the so-called ‘Muddy’ Sukshuma Baba in a e-mail as follows:-

Been sick in bed for days. A LOT OF TIME TO THINK . Was so repulsed at the meeting for Westerners in the ashram last Tuesday evening where we were told that MUDH believers could participate in Christmas programs, that we were to be loving and kind to them, and that if they insisted on asking us to join them we could politely refuse. This is absolute nonsense in my mind. When the Japanese Guru came here with his hundreds of devotees in the ’90s and challenged Baba to a test of divine powers the ashram gates were closed and you had to show your passport to get in if you were a foreigner. To top it all off, the person who talked the most at the meeting was Leo Nanda a BIG believer in the Fraud Squad and he bragged about all the miracles going on there including RESURRECTIONS. Plenty of MUDH people were there sucking up the politeness. Oh, Swami, what is happening to your Sai Mission with so many weaklings and cowards tiptoeing through the muck? Christmas, the birth of the Christ in Consciousness is not just about peace, it’s also about justice. I certainly remember the stories of Jesus ranting and raging through the temple and throwing the fraud squad of that time out of the temple for putting money before God. It’s good that Swami’s put me on rest mode to get over my virus because I’m too weak to get roaring angry. Terry Reis Kennedy December 18 at 10:27am

A frequent propagandist who has a website under the name Sai Bliss, is Satish Naik, who has taken to YouTube and who now promotes the views of the former interpreting translator of Sai Baba – Professor Anil Kumar –

On his Facebook page Naik writes:  “DOES OUR SWAMI NEED A COMMUNICATOR? No other Avatar has warned so many times like the Sri Sathya Sai Avatar about claims of Mediums/communicators who would “Channel” Him and loot the innocent and gullible devotees’s hard earned money in the name of Charity. Please watch this very important talk by Prof.Anil Kumar which is a reminder of Swami’s quotations on this very important topic which is dividing and confusing Sai Devotees. Here is the link”

What Satisk Naik here fails to recognise is that the infamous Anil Kumar has continually acted as a mouthpiece for Sathya Sai Baba, both when he was alive and especially so after his demise, spouting his own fanciful interpretations of what Sai Baba said or meant. He also lives off the lucrative Sai Baba brand, the gravy train of ‘free lunches’ available to those who live on the hospitality and help of others.

Reflection, reaction, resound explained by Anil Kumar? February 4, 2014

Anil Kumar of Sathya Sai Baba infamy continues to deceive himself and others January 20, 2013 Still blustering – his Besserwissen arrogance shining through his false humility – the deeply compromised Professor Anil Kumar continues to defend one of India’s most untruthful, calculating and degenerate claimants to be the God Avatar of the Age, even after all that has come out to disprove and discredit Sathya Sai Baba.

An Interview with Professor Anil Kumar May 26, 2012 This is the concluding part of  Professor Anil Kumar Kamaraju’s interview in Thailand. He is asked about the British architect Keith Critchlow, who was close to Prince Charles and designed the super-speciality hospital in Puttaparthi, reportedly advised Prince Charles to visit Sai Baba. And Charles was said to be keen to make the trip.

Professor Anil Kumar’s interview with the Thailand media – 2  May 22, 2012 Professor Anil Kumar Kamaraju ‘s interview in Bangkok should be viewed in the light of Anil Kumar’s overwhelming gullibility as a translator and endorser of Sai Baba’s impossible claims.

Comment: “The faction between PN ashram and Muddenahalli is like a tennis match, each beating the ball into the other’s court and both sides passionately talking against the other. Hilarious! Perhaps this is their interpretation of ‘human values’? Meanwhile, both places are mostly ghost towns except when they compete for hoards of illiterate villagers during superstitious festival days.

A well-informed, savvy, and honourable ‘Sai Baba blogger’

Posted by robertpriddy on July 20, 2015

srikanthThe foremost all-round critic of Sathya Sai Baba in India – a former service worker at Prashanthi Nilayam who gradually penetrated the falsity and deception there – is Srikanth Uppuluri. His blogs on the entire spectrum of Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings, works and actions are not only revealing of horrendous treatment of devotees based on his own observations, his family and those of other people known to him, are truly illumining.

In his most recent article he discusses the preposterous megalomaniac claims of Sai Baba as to his infallibility both as to knowledge and will power by pointing out some of the many dismal failures over which he presided. Uppuluri asks many pertinent questions (which have obvious answers to the non-indoctrinated) such as: “How is it that the good work done by the individual, is done by Swami, but their bad actions attract karma?” This and more is at: The Universal Manager – unable to hold his organization together through his Divine Will?

Profesor Anil Kumar contradicts himself and SB’s teaching) time and again. Uppuluri points out the unsolvable paradox that Kumar cannot handle, namely, why should he ask people to go to the Puttaparthi ‘graveyard’ when Sai Baba constantly stated that he is present in everyone, is within and without, so that travelling long distances like that is simply wasting time and money. Sai Baba could not defend this himself as he asked for visitors and service workers to come from across the globe to see him often, especially on his meg-birthday do’s. I knew a number of VIPs from many countries who had visited him from 30 to 60 times!

Nearly all Westerners came to realise that the interpreter Anil Kumar was and is less of a genuine professor than an empty head parroting through his vocal megaphone. (Too many Indian professors have got their titles through family or diverse sources of corrupt patronage, whether or not they had actually bribed their way to a degree, as is seen in the appalling low standard of knowledge one can meet in them).

Reflection, reaction, resound explained by Anil Kumar?

Posted by robertpriddy on February 4, 2014

Every human being is like a mirror. In the mirror, you find a reflection of yourself. In many mirrors, you see many reflections of yourself. Reflection. Reaction. Resound.”  
(Sathya Sai Baba Discourse October 9, 2009.

Anil Kumar Kamaraju (a former botanist, hence professor) had close access to Sai Baba as his interpreter etc. He is living on the memory of Sai Baba, and – with his small band of servile helpers – is obtaining money from lecturing to the remaining flock of devotees wherever they can be found… around the world, where he travels on junkets (invitations with free air tickets, free board and lodging always was the norm for Indian Sai VIPs) .“This kind of reaction, reflection and resound calls for extreme precaution in our choice of action or non-action.”

Indeed, this sounds most hollow when it is realised that the good Anil Kamaraju Kumar is known to be a philanderer and to have kept a foreign (Finnish) mistress, while married and serving his Lord and Master, who insisted on celibacy… See:  Professor Anil Kumar, Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘left-hand’ man. Enough said as to word and action in Mr. Kumar’s ‘spiritual practice’!

As to reflection, reaction and resound, one needs a proper explanation of what this was supposed to mean, and to functions the doctrine served in Sai Baba’s so-called “dispensation” of wisdom, but no coherent practicable meaning can actually be given, which is why both Sai Baba and Anil Kumar give nothing but vague, general unsatisfactory answers.  In brief, it holds that we can see nothing but a reflection of ourselves in anything whatever, however much we try! Likewise, all that happens is a reaction to our own (previous) actions. In an eggshell, the problem with this idea – that ‘I am the only person who exists’ – is that if one tries to apply these speculations to oneself and live as if they were true, endless confusion, contradictions, uncertainty and other unthinkable consequences follow… It is actually impossible to get through life sanely taking such a doctrine seriously!  Professor Kumar preaches that doctrine but most certainly does not act on it himself! This ‘doctrine’, however, came in very handy for Sai Baba (as for many another guru and preacher) when wanting to explain away a person’s problems – ‘they are self-created’, don’t you know! It also absolves him from any form of criticism because the person is only seeing himself, not the Divine Master! A useful doctrine for controlling and manipulating others, as Indian priesthoods always have done, and for castigating people as the cause of all human and even earthly ills (and Sai Baba insisted) including earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, believe it or not!) See disclaimer

Dr. Anil Kumar runs a gaudy website ( devoted primarily to the subject of himself, his travels and ‘satsangs’ (get-togethers). That he is bombastic and self-important is not in question.  He chants a bhajan after his satsang (just like his Bhagavan did) and he inadvertently reveals his self-esteem in some jokes as if at his own expense, such as on 31 December 2000, when he told his audience: “I have told you a number of times that, “In this age of BBC, British Broadcasting Corporation, I am ABC: Anil Kumar Broadcasting Corporation!” (Laughter)

Brian Steel lists piquant examples of Kumar’s uninhibited blurting: (At one point where he is comparing SB’s ‘afro’ hairstyle to the Biblical “crown of crowns”, Kumar gives free rein to his poetic vision: “As Bhagavan walks giving darshan, when the wind blows, His beautiful hair tosses like the golden daffodils along the Milky Way of William Wordsworth. How nicely and beautifully our good Lord adjusts His hair, ah-ha! It is a sight for the gods.”)  Kumar makes “countless forced comparisons with the New Testament. What educator Kumar performs here is a caricature of “scholarship”, tantamount to brain-washing.”

One great advantage of Professor Anil Kumar’s talks is that any religious historian or other sober non-follower who reads them will reject the whole rigmarole as beyond the realms of remote likelihood. Learn more about the mental antics of the compromised Kumar, see the following:-

The Latest Example of His Master’s Voice  Brian Steel analyses the role of Anil Kumar in Sai propaganda and disinformation. He points out that, however bizarre some of Kumar’s offering may sound, they are accepted without demur by most devotees as accurate and authentic pieces of the SB story: in other words, as officially endorsed. Much of the SB legend has been strengthened and sustained in this indirect way.

Professor Anil Kumar, Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘left-hand’ man Professor Anil Kumar is one of Sai Baba’s most trusted accomplices. He is a married man, but is also accused most credibly of philandering, and with Sai Baba’s permission too!

The Latest Example of His Master’s Voice Brian Steel writes of Anil Kumar’s web-published unquestioning endorsements of SB and his Divine claims (but also of his boastfulness and his peculiar anecdotes). Steel shows excerpts of Kumar’s claims, exaggeration, far-fetched comparisons, adulation,which are completely transparent as to require no comment.

The following substantial comment was made to the above came from one who knew Anil Kumar and his helper associates:-

Eileenweed said February 5, 2014 at 4:06 am e

Anil Kumar’s outrageously flowery and exaggerated descriptions entirely comes to a standstill in the privacy of his own home. When I went a number of times to the teacher’s quarters across from sb’s parent’s burial site on Samadhi Road where he lived, to ask sticky questions about sb’s senseless words in discourses (he was often in the company of several ardent admirers), Anil Kumar only said, “I have no idea why he said that! NO IDEA!” The silence would be deafening as I waited for the characteristic poetic surge that I thought would follow, but never did.

In addition, I was asked on numerous occasions by my long-time acquaintance SH, to transcribe Anil Kumar’s fantastically fictional talks so they could be published on that website by her long-time boyfriend LG. Apparently (and amazingly?! NOT) they cannot find enough people willing to spend time on that lofty service, so SH often has to do it herself. SH and LG often go along (at their own expense) with Anil Kumar when he is invited to various places to talk about sb, to set up the audio and video equipment. One wonders just how many people bother to go to the site and read those talks.

Sathya Sai Baba cult worship disempowerment

Posted by robertpriddy on January 27, 2014

Summaries of the six full articles explaining this self-negation in depth

Part One -The Nectar that turns into Opium The enthusiasm of newly converted ‘devotees’ to gurus means that one invests one’s own energies and identity in some other person, and develops a dependency on an external mind other than one’s own. This often continues for some time, but eventually the nectar becomes opium and brings the same kind of problems as the drug does – loss of autonomy, confusion, weakness of purpose etc. By that time too many persons are too involved and have sacrificed so much of their own mind and autonomy that they can only break the dependency with the greatest difficulty. By that time many are far even from willing even to try.

Part Two– Escapism in a spiritual guise Gurus usually make a fuss of new followers (especially at first) and intimate that he is taking them under personal care and protection so they may attain the ‘spiritual heights’ and even get release from all suffering and even the ‘wheel of reincarnation’. Escapism into ‘spirituality’ is largely the acceptance of indoctrination or a mental straightjacket on natural and normal behaviour, which leads to loss of autonomy, cognitive disorientation from which the guru will do nothing to save or release the individual, as he has inducted a follower who cannot refues his original offer of eventual salvation from all problems.

Part Three – Projecting one’s inherent powers (onto the guru) How psychological projection is the key to understanding how people perceive their guru or ‘spiritual master’. The way perceptions are built and controlled are many, not least through personal contact, stories, books, films and so forth before meeting the guru. On the first meeting, the aspirant already has many ideas about the guru and how he should be approached, worshipped, prayed to etc. This has always been the way to get involved with Sai Baba. visits the ashrams hoping for some form of personal attention, eye contact, some words and above all, a group interview and a private talk but often one is kept waiting for days, weeks, months even years with just a few enigmatic glances, nods or other slight indications. (exemplified by Chris Parnell of the Australian Sathya Sai Organization)

Part Four – Misunderstood Self-denial Through supposed ‘self-transformation’ one adopts a doctrine and becomes seriously engaged in trying to put into practice the precepts required by it. With few exceptions, so-called spiriual gurus require celibacy and teach puritanical and traditional customs about relationships, especially between women and men. A person who joins a community where this is required soon distances him or herself from former friends and connections, even close family in numerous cases. One learns what one may say openly within the community, and what is taboo, but also what one can say to non-participants, how one should present the guru, the community and the teaching. This is a kind of double-accounting system whereby unfortunate aspects and especially doubts about the guru or his teaching are suppressed or misrepresented to others. The result is a kind of social apartheid – us and them (i.e. the rest of society). 

Denial of so-called ‘ego’, individuality, surrender of selfhood are incompatible with natural and self-aware self-confidence, as those who really try to put extreme ‘spiritual work’ into practice discover. Not like most others who preach about it but fail to act themselves. One example is the Sai sermoniser, Professor Anil Kumar, who is married but known for having mistresses… and whose egotistical and constant falsely-humble bombast is so extreme as to demonstrate how to compensate for lack of sound self-confidence.

Part Five Sai ‘Group think’ & Dominance through Psychic Manipulation The guru usually makes good use of the persuasive power of ‘group effect’ or ‘groupthink’.  Sai Baba VIPs often let it be known (mostly in an offhand way) about any blessings that conferred on them by Sai baba… it gave increased group status and authority. Having selected the most blind followers (preferable rich, influential) as his top minions, they and Sai Baba’s huge group of subservient followers did his work for him. As new, isolated, individual arrived and were initiated into the standard explanations which deter doubts or criticism and inures the mind into disregard of the many untoward events and surprises that arise to test one’s faith. Thus the adherent gradually got cognitively and psychologically confused in their judgement and could come to live in a kind of parallel reality, a space where the teaching never to criticise anyone but oneself or even think anything negative about anyone has to be given lip service, at least. This is an ideal environment for the charlatan, the corrupt and the criminal.

Part Six – Fundamentalist tenets & their psychological effects   Fundamentalist ideas which, by their very nature, invariably go against the grain of common sense and healthy moderation, have consequent psychological effects in disempowerment and self-denial. Self-conflicting doctrine and teachings which are so impracticable and strict lead to self-denigration and yet worse, let alone to discoveries that all is not as it should be in the community and in the guru’s personal life and actions. When the teaching is inconsistent, vague, fuzzy, too general and open to differing interpretations – as is often the case – it can be too much for the average person to master mentally, to analyse (and study critically!). The teaching is usually backed up by reference to innumerable spiritual stories, doctrines and dogmas as well as to sophisticated speculative explanations of moot points, so that it become as if an endless labyrinth where one loses the Ariadne thread all too easily and ends up giving up in confusion. Unfortunately, the option often taken then is usually resignation and acceptance of the doctrine “the human mind is not capable of the superhuman level of the guru’s immense knowledge’.

Professor Anil Kumar’s interview with the Thailand media – 1

Posted by robertpriddy on May 18, 2012

Professor Anil Kumar Kamaraju (a former botanist) translated Sathya Sai Baba’s speeches for almost four decades and had close access to him. As a very close and privileged associate of Sathya Sai Baba, he took to himself a Finnish mistress while still married to his Indian wife, which Sai Baba himself obviously knew and did not disapprove (despite all his puritanical ranting about sins of the flesh, and inordinate praise of female celibacy – even in marriage!) (See testimony about Kumar’s extra-marital affair here)

In Bangkok Kumar was asked about  some questions of skeptics and critics by The Nation, reposted by the propaganda web site Here are some of his rationalizations to try to explain away what otherwise are facts that themselves refute the claims of total selflessness and omniscient omnipotence that Sai Baba always claimed for himself. (My comments are in violet text)

How do you explain the huge amount of cash and jewellery found in Sai Baba’s room, which was unearthed after his death, especially as the Sathya Sai Organization does not seem to have a history of soliciting funds? 

You know, [devotees], they’re  trying to hand it over to him personally. But he never accepts. They want to give something. He rejects it openly, throws it in their face. But these people don’t give up. They send them by courier, they post it. And those that were received by mail were [left] lying there. But he had never looked at them. He never used that money. He never touched those packets. There were many cheques for huge amounts that had not been cashed, some dating back to 1993. Had he been money-minded he would have got them cashed. Many [packets] were not even opened. Because he was not at all bothered. All the money and jewels found in his room have nothing to do with him.Comment: It was widely documented in Indian newspapers and by Sai Trust members that ONLY Sathya Sai Baba and his trusted young male consort, Sathyajit, had access to his rooms in the Yajur Mandir. The special security lock to the room could only be opened by Sathyajit, who took a long time after the funeral to be convinced to allow access. This undoubtedly shows that Sai Baba and Sathyajit together knew full well about all the valuables, currency, gold, silver, huge silver statues of Indian deities and much much more that was about the room. It was reported that Sathya Sai Baba had a five-by-five meter bed within which many valuables were concealed, as well as full wardrobes and cupboards! It is clear that Anil Kumar is in intense psychological denial about all the wrong-doings and falsity of Sathya Sai Baba, not least because he had so thoroughly tied his entire life, future and ‘prestige’ to his master that he concocted these highly unconvincing and fact-denying rationalizations as a face-saving ploy. 

Why was all the money not taken away? Why was it left lying in the room? 
Because no one had access to his room. No official could go to his room. They had to wait for him downstairs. He came down and talked to them. No one knew what was lying in the room. It was news even to the officials. I, having had proximity to him for four decades, can categorically say that he never talked about money. Money was never a criterion for him for anything. Money was never a consideration for anybody to come close to him. He attached no value to it. If you take my example, I was an ordinary college lecturer, with a hand-to-mouth existence, so how could I be so close to him? I never gave him anything.
See disclaimer

Comment: Indeed, Anil Kumar had no access to the room either! Hence he could not know that Sai Baba never looked at any of what was stored throughout his room, stuffed into cupboards and concealed all over the place. That is what he wants to believe in his quandary about the most revealing proof that his Lord and Master ended up as a miserly hoarder.
That Sai Baba allegedly “never talked about money” is an outright untruth. He even asked me for money in a private interview, and did so to other persons I knew well! Of course, he made many references to money in his countless discourses too, though very often to deny that he accepted any himself or that his organization should solicit money (which it did on numerous occasions. Sai Baba himself also appealed via his journal Sanathana Sarathi for funds for his hospitals and his water projects through which he set about diverting attention from his miracles, omnipotent claims. luxury life and discredited miracles so as rather to promote himself as a social reformer). Such a huge deception – while Sai Baba decided to what the funds given him should go, and personally countersigned every cheque received as he stated this in a discourse (Sathya Sai Speaks Volume 26, p. 261). In 1986 his nephew – then manager at the State bank in Puttaparthi – flipped through a very thick wad of cheques to show me that Sathya Sai Baba had signed every one. Sai Baba has even stated in a discourse that he signed every cheque. No one on the board of the Central Trust could decide any expenditure that he did not approve. This shows that he was in all ways the de facto owner of all the property and wealth of the Trust and that he alone could accept and decide over the disposal of its donated funds. Sai Baba is further often reported to have handed out money in quantities, both to numerous of his favoured students and to some of those foreign boys he had sexually abused (such as Alaya Rahm – see testimony on the BBC documentary ‘The Secret Swami’).

Sathya Sai Baba: gold from body in ‘lingam’

Posted by robertpriddy on August 10, 2010

Sathya Sai Baba fraudulent 'materialization'

Frames from BBC's 'The Secret Swami' showing Sai Baba sleight of hand

According to Sathya Sai Baba’s translator ‘Professor’ Anil Kumar, Sai Baba said that his collapse at the Shivarthri festival in 2004 was due to the three tonnes of weight of the golden lingam he claimed emerged from his body (see here – also view how the BBC camera showed that no lingam actually emerged). Probably the fatuous blind believer Anil Kumar mistranslated Sai Baba’s words… for the Sanathana Sarathi printed version of Sai Baba discourses in which he claims that the weight of the gold in the human body – and in the gold lingams he produces – was ‘three tolas’. This is equivalent to the weight of three original silver Indian rupees of 11.4 grams each. So Sai Baba’s lingam of three tolas would weigh just over 34 grams.

Further, Sai Baba said in his discourse after the Shivarathri lingodbhava two years previously (13/3/2002) “(Showing the golden Linga to the devotees, Swami said). “As you can all see, this Linga is rather bigger in size. There is a meaning behind this. This is five Tolas in weight. [one Tola is 11.66 grams. 5 Tolas = about 60.0 grams]Every human being possesses five Tolas of gold essence known as Hiranyagarbha… Gold represents energy in man and is the cause of his radiance. The gold content within each body is this size only. It is gold essence in the body that makes the eyes see, ears hear etc. (Sanathana Sarathi – April 2002, p. 127)

Firstly, the human body cannot possibly contain so much gold! In Wikipedia we find that the amount of gold in the human body is vanishingly tiny:-

Element Percent of Atoms Atoms
Gold 0.00000030 2 x 1019

Further: “only salts and radioisotopes of gold are of pharmacological value, as elemental (metallic) gold is inert to all chemicals it encounters inside the body” (see here)

Sai Baba’s fantastic account of the imaginary ‘Hiranyagarbha’ and how it ‘represents’ energy [but also ”makes the eyes see, ears hear etc.”] is beyond all reason and science. It is a primitive Vedic superstition, which led to the use of gold as an ayurvedic ‘medicine’. It is used in ayurvedic clinics even today, despite modern scientific knowledge of all the properties of gold in all its different forms on the human body as having very little effect except some reduction of some arthritic inflammation. In short, another myth perpetrated by Sathya Sai Baba with his ignorance of science and belief in ancient mythology as superior even to modern knowledge!

Sathya Sai Baba and longevity

Posted by robertpriddy on August 14, 2009

Sai Baba's deluded translator, Anil Kumar

Sai Baba's deluded translator, Anil Kumar

Sathya Sai Baba’s translator and wilful spreader of untruth, Anil Kumar, that Prof. N. Kasturi lived for 100 year

They Lived For 100 Years

“Bhagavan was telling us the other day that those who lived here with Him lived for 100 years, every one of them. He gave an example of Professor Kasturi. When Bhagavan went to see him, He asked him to go for a health check-up. Kasturi answered, “Swami, I’m fine. Why should I go for a health check up?” Bhagavan told him just like that: “Go! Have your blood pressure checked. That’s all!” Kasturi went there and Bhagavan went to the hospital to see him, giving Kasturi instructions for the rest of the things to follow.

The caretaker of the Mandir in those days was Kutumba Rao. (Swami must have given him instructions to arrange for a cremation procession.) He asked, “Swami, why do you want me to arrange to carry a dead body?” Swami said, “No, no, no. Don’t ask. Just follow My instruction.” As Kutumba Rao was making the procession arrangements, the news came that Kasturi expired. That’s it. Kutumba Rao had not been aware of Kasturi’s impending death.Bhagavan was also telling us the other day about Kamadhani, who also lived for 100 years.”

This was on the web site After my exposure of the facts it was removed from the Internet

Prof. N. Kasturi began his autobiography Loving God with the words “This time, I inhaled the Breath of God on Christmas Day, 1897.” His successor as editor of Sanathana Sarathi, V.K. Narasimhan, wrote (September 1987, p. 260) that “death came to him (Kasturi) on August 14 at noon and that he was 90.” What Narasimhan did not write, but told me, was that Kasturi complained bitterly of his terrible sufferings from throat cancer for the 6 weeks he lay on his deathbed (unvisited by Sai Baba except very near the end). That Kutumba Rao was unaware of Kasturi’s long bedridden suffering and likelihood of impending death is simply not credible!

V.K. Narasimhan, who died March 19th, 2000, did not reach the magic 100 years either. At the age of 87, having lost an eye which Sai Baba was unable or unwilling to cure, and then having lost his wife some years later, my dear old friend Narasimhan passed away on March 9th, 2000, after a lengthy period of much suffering in hospital with water on the lungs.

The extravagant untruthful claim in the above that “those who lived here with Him lived for 100 years, every one of them.” can easily be refuted. A friend of mine, Judge Damodar Rao, who had resided close to Sai Baba for decades, died long before reaching his century. Likewise, the above-mentioned Kutumb Rao, who was Sai Baba’s close servitor and Head of Prashanthi Nilayam Ashram. After being sent away for a period, Kutumb Rao returned to his post in 1989, but suffered from internal cancers. He was sent to Madras and opened up, but closed again as a hopeless case beyond surgery. He suffered much for a long period and died around 1990, many years before he reached 100 years of age.

On the basis of the above, it is also doubtful whether the engineer and servitor of Sai Baba in the 1970s, Kamadhani, lived to 100 years. On November 8th, 1997, Sai Baba referred to the death that day of a genuine centenarian, Swami Karunyananda, who had been with Sai Baba for forty years.

The Sai Baba priest who died prematurely

The Sai Baba priest who died prematurely

On the very same day another one who lived with Sai Baba for 40 years died, the pujari of the Prashanthi Nilayam mandir, Padmanabha Shastri. Padmhanabha reportedly did not get at all near to the 100-year milepost! Moreover, Sai Baba stated:

“During the last three months I had been advising Padmanabha Sastri to realise that his is a diabetic patient. ‘The wound in your leg is getting worse. Ultimately amputation may be unavoidable. You are neglecting your leg. Heed my words.’. I was repeatedly warning him, he was consuming sweet things like paayasam and laddus. Today his blood pressure rose to 400 and he had a severe heart attack. You can see what happens when Swami’s advice is ignored.”
(Sanathana Sarathi 11/1997, p. 299 & Sathya Sai Speaks Vol 30, page 231)

It is clear that Sai Baba says whatever suits his whims to try to enhance his importance. Since many people believe him to be what he claims, they take seriously all his glib standard promises to persons like, ‘Long life, healthy life, happy life’, or ‘I will heal’, ‘I will look after everything’ or whatever he says… even though many of these ‘divine promises’ simply do not hold up on inspection. The accounts of Sai Baba’s apparently all-knowing interventions and comments which are vague as to checkable information (such as Anil Kumar excels at on the above-referenced website) are not backed by any evidence from the published case notes or written declarations of known doctors, but rather seem to be amateurishly ‘doctored’ texts. One only has the enthusiastic and pre-convinced raconteur to rely on in practically all instances. It is nearly all just a case of more belief for committed believers. In any case, the critical literature is growing replete with documented examples of Sathya’s Asathya.

Sathya Sai Baba warns people about the danger of telling lies, for example:-
… indulging in falsehood is a tortuous process. One has to take a lot of trouble to cover up one lie with more lies.” (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. 21, p. 214)

Well, he should know by now as he evidently speaks from experience.

Professor Anil Kumar, Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘left-hand’ man

Posted by robertpriddy on June 25, 2008

Professor Anil Kumar, very close servitor and interpreter of Sathya Sai Baba


Professor Anil Kumar is one of Sai Baba’s most trusted accomplices. He is a married man, but is also accused most credibly of philandering, and with Sai Baba’s permission too! So much for the morals and human values in Brindavan! I refer to Conny Larsson’s bestseller in Sweden ‘Behind the Mask of the Clown’ in which he exposes Sathya Sai Baba as a serial molestor of males, a deceiver and a practitioner of sleight-of-hand.

In his endless moralising discourses, Sathya Sai Baba sets impossibly high standards as to sexual chastity before marriage and even within marriage, but he condones sleeping around by his personal translator and close servitor! This is hypocrisy, of course… matched only by his own widely reported and testified homosexual promiscuity.

Conny Larsson with girlfriend \'Tuula\' Anja Tammelin Here is the excerpt in which Larsson describes how his girlfriend ‘Tuula’ Anja Tammelin was seduced into a sex relationship by the sanctimonious ‘devotee’ Professor Anil Kumar! The excerpt is from here

“One day I heard rumors from India that Baba had introduced a new man to Tuula, the Indian Anil Kumar, who was Baba’s own English interpreter at public appearances. But he was married and had children! Tuula said nothing about that in her letters. They breathed resignation and a downright hostility towards those who lived at Puttaparthi or served as teachers within the ashram. She never so much as mentioned the earlier relationship between herself and me. Perhaps there was some bitterness about the way Sai Baba directed our lives? I did not know what to think, but I felt a growing anxiety. Finally I got on a plane to fly down to Puttaparthi to find out how matters stood.

“I found Tuula living in an apartment outside the ashram. The apartment was used as a love nest for her and this new man. I was shaken, but I did not feel I was entitled to have any views on Tuula’s love for Anil, as I had left her behind at Puttaparthi in obedience to Baba’s orders.

Sai Baba had again acted in ways that were not in accord with the five human values. After all, by Indian standards Tuula had been made into a concubine, and that with the blessing of my God.

I could not be so presumptuous as to believe that I could determine what was right or wrong when it came to such a colossus as Sai Baba, who had shown the way to so many thousands of people. More educated persons than I had found a refuge in this incarnation of God, so who was I to sit in judgment on the one who was regarded as the new Messiah of our age. I had to acknowledge and take the consequences of my choice to leave Tuula in favor of the road indicated by Baba.” (by Conny Larsson)

Professor Anil Kumar is one of the least credible of Sathya Sai Baba’s unofficial ‘mouthpieces’ with his lip service to the morals of Sathya Sai Baba and his vast credulity about all of Sathya Sai Baba’s claims and wholly uncritical naive acceptance of Sai Baba’s huge boasts about himself and his own importance.
