Sathya Sai Baba – some key teachings

Posted by robertpriddy on September 1, 2009

Among an endless stream of contradictory statements by Sathya Sai Baba, the following few are quite striking:-

“I do not ask anybody for any help.  It is Sathya Sankalpa (Will of Truth); what I am doing is good. If one undertakes any good work, it is bound to fructify. It is My goodness that attracts all the help.” (‘25.12.2000. Sanathana Sarathi, Vol.  44, January 2001, p. 9)

“It is not possible to provide education to the children if they are living in a different village. We wanted to keep them nearby and asked the government to allot a suitable piece of land. But they have not given this to us and I have stopped asking them.” ( 25.12.2000. Sanathana Sarathi, Vol.  44, Jan. 2001, p. 10)

“At a meeting of the Central Trust yesterday, I told the members including Sri Indulal Shah, that I had no interest in property. Do not involve me in any connection with these properties. I do not wish to have any connection with money or property. My only concern is with my devotees. Telling them all this, I signed the papers.” (1.01.1998, Sanathana Sarathi, Vol.  41, January1998, p. 4)

“From that day onwards, I have taken up a firm resolve. Children should be fed properly and given proper education. So, I have made a scheme of fixed deposits of one lakh rupees for each family of such helpless mothers and their children. They will get an interest of more than one thousand rupees per month to fulfil their needs.” ( 25.12.2000. Sanathana Sarathi, Vol.  44, January 2001, p. 10)

“We have got our own orchard. I have decided to use that piece of land to construct houses for these poor families.” ( 25.12.2000. Sanathana Sarathi, Vol.  44, January 2001, p. 10)

“Some students get the homework done by their brothers or sisters. This amounts to cheating their teacher. This is not correct. Students should do the homework themselves. They should develop good qualities.” (11.09.1998. Sanathana Sarathi, Vol.  41, October 1998, p. 275)

(Sathya Sai Baba reports how he took E.S.L.C. examinations with his classmates, Ramesh and Suresh:
“I completed My answer paper in just 5 minutes. Then I took some more papers from the invigilator and wrote the answers in Ramesh’s handwriting. After completing it, I took another set of papers and wrote the answers in Suresh’s handwriting. I also wrote their names on the answer sheets and kept them with Me. I had already told them not to get up, before I got up from My chair. At the end of two hours, when the final bell rang, the examiners started asking the students to surrender the answer sheets. All the students got up and I silently went and placed all the three answer papers on the table. All of us came out of the examination hall. Nobody raised any objection.” (11.09.1998. Sanathana Sarathi, Vol.  41, October 1998, p. 273)

“Though 56 years have passed, I have not got even one shirt or gown stitched for Me. I am now wearing what is given by a student Radhakrishna of the Kingdom of Sathya Sai.” (23.11.1982. Sathya Sai Speaks Vol.  XV, p. 312)

“The number of Sathya Sai organisations has grown in this country. I have to travel by car to visit these organisations and such journeys are not very convenient besides taking a lot of time. I therefore propose to dispose of the 3 or 4 cars I have and get a helicopter.” (letter of 27.05.1971, J. Hislop.  My Baba and I. p. 244)

“This is not your Unit, your Organisation; it is Mine. In My institution, minds must mutually harmonise.” (21(24).11.1969, Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. IX, p. 173)

“I wish that all of you conduct yourselves as elder and younger brothers and make the Sai Organisation as a model for the world. I have no connection whatsoever with the organisation. You have to work for yourselves.” (24.11.1987, Sanathana Sarathi, December 1987, p.  324)

“That does not mean, in terms of the wordly nature of the being in whom one sees the Lord, that one condones or admires, or does not scold the misbehaviour of the wordly part of that person. Even though one sees and loves and really pays attention to God in that person, nevertheless, that person should be scolded, his attention called to his failures and misbehavings and failings and so on.” (J. Hislop.  Conversations with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Ch. XIV, p. 51)

In the Nine Points Code of Conduct given by Sai Baba to all members of his Organisation to abide,  point 8 reads: “Speaking softly and lovingly with everyone with whom he comes into contact.”

“Non-observance or violation of this Code of Conduct shall disqualify a member from holding any office or from being an active member in the Organisation.” (Charter of the Sathya Sai Organisation, p. 7)

Sai Baba: “Swami never sleeps. At the middle of the night, he turns off the light and rest in the bed because if light is on devotees gather.” (J. Hislop.   Conversations with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. SSSB&P Trust. ed. after 1995, ch. XIX, p. 72)

“They wondered who the old lady could be. The key of the lift was in their hands and there was no staircase leading to the apartment. How did she manage to come here? When the boys asked this question, Swami woke up.” (Sanathana Sarathi, Vol.  41, June 1998, ð.143)

H: Is it wrong to criticise a person?
Sai: It is not wrong to criticise a person if the evaluation has been arrived at slowly and carefully. (J. Hislop.  Conversations with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, SSSB&PT, India, ch. XLIV, p. 145, ed. after 1995)

It is a great sin to criticise others. God is in everyone. So, criticising others amounts to criticising God Himself. Do not criticise or ridicule anyone. (14.04.1999. Sanathana Sarathi, Vol.  42, May 1999, p. 125)

Finally, Sathya Sai Baba firmly states that he is ‘Hiranyagarbha’, and that this is what is meant by God! He thereby makes clear that he regards himself as God, which (since they do not regurgitate lingams!) it is evident that others cannot be in the same sense, despite his saying “all are God“. Note the discrepancy in translated meaning between the two versions, which is extremely codymmon throughout those texts which have appeared in more than one version throughout the literature.

“Embodiments of Love! Today is a very holy day. The time at 6 o’clock is highly sacred. At that time, the Atma Lingam will be manifested. God is sometimes called the Hiranyagarbha. The golden Lingas emerge from Hiranyagarbha itself.” ( 21.02.2001. – a totally pro-Sai Baba website)

Compare this with the ‘official’ version:- “Embodiments of Love! Today is a very holy day. From six o’clock in the evening, the time is highly sacred when Linga will be manifested. God is called the Hiranyagarbha. The golden Lingas emerge from Hiranyagarbha itself.” ( 21.02.2001. Sanathana Sarathi, Vol.  44, March 2001, p. 71)
