Sathya Sai Trust denial and cover-up

Posted by robertpriddy on April 29, 2011

The Economic Times wrote (Apl. 29, 2011)  PUTTAPARTHI: Ever since it was known that Sri Sathya Sai Baba was seriously ill, rumours of all kinds were making the rounds in the town of Puttaparthi, 435 km from Hyderabad. Everything, from the future of the Trust headed by Baba (the Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust) to whether he left a will, has been open to intense speculation.

It is reported in the press that Satyajit claimed he had a will kept by his lawyer. What became of it? Could it have been bought – or the lawyer bought? There are enormous amounts of money involved here, and extremely greedy players no doubt, considering the endemic corruption throughout India. These are things we will probably never know for the secrecy and underhand methods used can succeed where there is money behind them.

On Thursday, a day after Baba was laid to rest, was time for all the trustees to make a rare appearance together in front of the media and clear the air. No, Baba left no will, they said. Nor did he name a successor . But the Trust would meet in the next one week and appoint a new chairman from among the existing trustees. Baba had been heading this public charitable Trust ever since it was formed in 1972. SS Naganand , who’s a lawyer to the Trust, said that a case for a will doesn’t arise.

If Sathya Sai Baba left a will, would Naganand dare to contest it, against the word of one he believes to be an Incarnate God? Would he try to defeat the will of the (supposed) Almighty by lawyer’s formal arguments? It seems he does not respect Sai Baba’s wishes, which were expressed in a discourse, that Satyajit should take over. What kind of man is this? Not that it seems at all right that his boyfriend and room-mate Satyajit should have any say in the donated funds’ use.

He said Baba always maintained that he did not have a single rupee. “He (Baba) said his property were his devotees. He never had any bank account, flat or land in his name. All the assets are property of the Trust and every rupee is accounted for. His only possession was his clothes so where arises the question of writing a will,” Naganand said.

This is sheer deceit. There are many persons who have received sums of money direct from the hand of Sathya Sai Baba – I knew a student who did, and others have testified, such as Alaya Rahm. If you look into the matter honestly and properly you will see that Sai Baba said very many things that were simply not true… based on his own contradictory words and actions. This I know as a fact from personal experience of him. So why believe his claims about money and not owning anything… he could and did summon up vast sums with his signatures on bank cheques (of which I have seen I thick wad myself – shown me by Ratnakar at the State Bank in Puttaparthi long ago (around 1986) when I had questions about whether my donations had been received. Sathya Sai Baba freely admitted in discourses that he always signed all cheques. He controlled all the money, even if it was not in his name so as to preserve an appearance of poverty’! He used millions to build two museums to promote himself and virtual palaces to house himself!

All those who point to Sai Baba as having received donations should be aware how these were obtained. In order to make people grateful to him for ‘blessings’, he gave away what he called ‘diamond rings’ but they were all cheap gems (no single person has ever produced proof of a professional jeweler while ex-devotees have produced proof that the stones they got were not genuine!). He gave countless cheap trinkets – some with 18 carat gold in (he had the means)  – and many of the watches he was donated he pretended to materialize. His trick have been exposed by dozens of persons who were close to him – leaders of his Organization included. This is a subtle trick – if you believe God gave you a diamond you will want to repay in many ways… and many did with huge donations worth hundreds of times more than what it cost him. I did so myself! See Sathya Sai Baba ‘green diamond’ fully proven to be fake They were well-meaning but were deceived. That is how he built his financial mini-empire… the more he took in the better things he could afford to give, such as free apartments in his ashram to some.

The Trust’s facade of blank denials in the face of much evidence was seen through when they refused at their press conference to answer a single question. These are perhaps best illustrated by a Google search page:-

Sathya Sai Baba’s gross lies in public – with photo

Posted by robertpriddy on July 19, 2009

On of his most despicable lies was in the ‘unforgiving Christmas discourse’ in 2000 (a time to celebrate the greatest teacher of forgiveness in history!!) where he accused many identifiable persons saying,

“Why are they doing this propaganda? Even this bad propaganda is for money. All these bad thoughts are for money only. Even these bad thoughts are for money only… Switzerland, America, Japan, Germany, China, Russia – our children have entered in all directions. Some foreigners are trying to bribe them. They are saying, “See, foolish ones! I will give this much money. I will give so many dollars. I will give this many pounds. You write and give some stories against Sathya Sai Baba.”

Of course, neither Sai Baba nor anyone else has been able to present a single shred of evidence to support this cheap and transparent lie. In lying thus, why did Sai Baba not follow his own advice to speak pleasantly and not unpalatably? The answer is evident, the allegations reached such proportions that they were causing many members of his organization to leave. He was under great pressure and therefore tried to hit back, knowing that those faithful to him would believe his every word. This was damage limitation at all costs. The truth is always the first casualty where Sai Baba and his people are concerned.

Sai Baba is himself taking money under false pretenses: will presumably continue to lie ‘until blue in the face’, and still claim that he is giving away ‘diamonds’ when they are not. He will never admit the truth about them, which I know with 100% certainty in the case of an alleged large ‘green diamond’ he gave me (expecting a fat donation I had already mentioned). He knows that giving these trinkets or other apparent divine favours will cause most of the rich recipients to donate large sums of money, devote much work and time to his advancement. This is a very advanced form of scam.

It is interesting to observe how so many credulous persons try to sustain their complete faith in him now that so many indubitable facts have come to light. Lack of self-confidence and fear of consequences are major factors, as well as loss of status, friends and realisation of having been thoroughly duped and having wasted major efforts and money on this deceiver. But much in which they had faith is most likely as crippled in their minds as Sai Baba is himself, and many are wracked within by private sufferings that have to be denied on his ‘divinely instructive example’. But Sai Baba has said that the truth protects those who face it!
