Sai Baba, the Divine Broker – in a Transactional World

My writings will not conclude with mere criticism of another. I mentioned earlier, while dedicating this work, that this effort aims to provide that knowledge by which each and everyone can lead a life based on principles, a life that is gratifying to oneself, by which each individual is successful, by which he can impact society in positive ways, where an individual clearly knows “what to do” with certainty rather than the commonly preached “what not to do” by preachers of religion and morality, where life consists no longer of fear of one kind or another, a life which is … Continue reading Sai Baba, the Divine Broker – in a Transactional World

The Universal Manager – unable to hold his organization together through his Divine Will ?

Divine resolve is always true resolve. Remember there is nothing that divine power cannot accomplish. It can transmute earth into sky and sky into earth. To doubt this is to prove that you are too weak to grasp great things, the grandeur of the universe. Let me tell you one more thing: Nothing can impede or halt the work of this Avathaara… Formerly when the Govardhanagiri (mountain) was raised aloft by a little boy, the gopis and gopalas realised that Krishna was the Lord. Now, it is not one Govardhanagiri , a whole range will be lifted, you will see!” … Continue reading The Universal Manager – unable to hold his organization together through his Divine Will ?

Prashanti Nilayam – Now Sathya Sai Baba’s graveyard?

A visitor to Prashanti Nilayam told me that the place has been reduced to nothing more than a graveyard wearing a deserted look. This is quite an appropriate sequel for the earlier show of Lord Shiva and flowing Vibhuti, since Lord Shiva is known to have roamed graveyards, slept in ashes and earned himself the title of Smashana Vaasi (resident of graveyard) Given this situation, efforts are on to promote Prashanti Nilayam as a destination for people to visit and also make the place more livelier through activities such as Sports for the Youth e.t.c. This is quite in contrast to what … Continue reading Prashanti Nilayam – Now Sathya Sai Baba’s graveyard?

All Religions are one and the same? – Theory and Practice

Quoting Sathya Sai Baba below — —————————————————————————————————————– Let the different faiths exist, let them flourish, let the glory of God be sung in all languages in a variety of tunes. That should be the ideal. Respect the differences between the faiths and recognize them as valid so far as they do not extinguish the flame of unity. Should each person live the ideals propounded by the founders of his religion, unaffected by greed or hate, then the world will be a happy and peaceful habitation for man. Honor all religions. Each is a pathway to God. That is the right … Continue reading All Religions are one and the same? – Theory and Practice

Man Management by Sathya Sai Baba

Further to my earlier posts on how Sathya Sai Baba used faithful devotees to get work done and also on the usage of the good and bad elements of society with equal flair Here is an excerpt from the preface of a Sai Publication book titled Man Management. I will encourage people to buy it and read it front to back…to understand how his Divinity thought….about himself, about others, about getting work done e.t.c. Of all the 6 M’s of management, viz. men, money, materials, machines, methods and markets, men (symbolising human beings) are the most important factor, for it … Continue reading Man Management by Sathya Sai Baba

My Parents – the real Gods and the True Dharmatmas

As part of the exercise of penning various stories by early devotees regarding Sathya Sai Baba – and all of this orchestrated by the Liar of Liars Sai Baba himself – there was great focus to highlight the various struggles of Sathya Sai Baba’s early life and the hardships he faced such as his adversity  – putting his shirt together using thorns, getting tortured by his family members who believed he was possessed by evil spirits e.t.c, There is however little mention of any of the struggles the devotees and their families themselves went through given that the mere association … Continue reading My Parents – the real Gods and the True Dharmatmas

Missing Australian woman found murdered in Puttaparthi

I shall be ever guiding you, like the eye lid guards the eye Nothing Happens Against My Will There is only one God and he is Omnipresent and he is here in Puttaparthi Why fear when I am here? Further to my earlier post —– an event in the news below that only goes to denote the number of such atrocities on foreigners and locals – some of these come to light, many of them do not. This was a case of foreigner with some one back in her country in pursuit of the missing woman and also the embassy itself. In … Continue reading Missing Australian woman found murdered in Puttaparthi

Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s Impotence

Recently, I went out with a friend of mine for an after dinner walk and some shopping. It was about 10:00 PM. We were walking, with me on the side of the pavement and my friend on the side of the road. An auto rickshaw passed by hitting my friend’s right shoulder and as he moved away, came further onto the left and into him further injuring him physically. My friend not being a local, and astonished at what happened, asked the auto driver if he was blind. Even before he realized, the auto driver, visibly drunk, stopped his vehicle, … Continue reading Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s Impotence

Indian guru Swami Premananda

What is it with most God men and Gurus who land up as serious criminal offenders ? Is this whole world against them for no reason ? In fact it is not the whole world. It is only the world they create within their Ashrams which turns hostile against them understanding their reality from close quarters, while the rest of the world  continues to think of these as Innocent Saints. Is there an international conspiracy to defame them ? Who is innocent and who is not ? Whatever the results of these cases, the truth is that these cases have occured … Continue reading Indian guru Swami Premananda

Sathya Sai Baba – Marriage and Sex

Several Sai devotees as well as truth seekers whom I came across and interacted with were often confused and curious what Sathya Sai Baba (as the Avatar and the all-knowing) thought of marriage and sex since his teachings or any of the several literature explained very little specifically about marriage, love life in general and sex particularly and that too in very confusing ways only alluding to the same in a more general manner as “sense pleasures”. The curiosity of people was obvious given his proclamations as the omnipresent thereby meaning that he “saw” them all the time and knew … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba – Marriage and Sex

Sathya Sai Baba and his minions – clarifications per convenience and context

Throughout his journey to stardom, Sathya Sai Baba coerced, tortured and even maimed several individuals and families in the name of Divine Will which was – “what I will has to succeed” True, this always succeeded because the method used did not matter to him. His  claim of being beyond both Good and Bad allowed him to use whichever method alike. When devotees began analyzing and understanding these facts through the events that were occurring around them, all the untoward happenings e.t.c., Sathya Sai Baba through his minions would quickly clarify this so as to eliminate doubt. For e.g. – if many … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba and his minions – clarifications per convenience and context

The lives of Sathya Sai Baba devotees say it all

Mandolin Srinivas , noted musician passed away on Sep 19th, at the young age of 45. May the noble soul rest in peace. And let us pray that in his further lives to come, he does not associate with Gods or God-men. Let us also pray that none whosoever goes through life as Mandolin Srinivas did – a great human being in terms of both skills and virtues, but who suffered in his personal life unknowing to the world. Several Sathya Sai Baba devotees have lived such lives and my respects to their struggles and sufferings. Salutations to these real heroes who … Continue reading The lives of Sathya Sai Baba devotees say it all

Illusions, Delusions as the means for God men to elude

All readers can note the date of this blog post and the followers of my blog can note the date they received this in their mail boxes. For this is related to the future and how the outcome of a case or situation can be twisted and turned either way for the truly guilty to escape from their own wrong doings and accusations riding on top of other events and cases. It is well known that the Sathya Sai devotees waste no time in attributing the good works of others to their own master as explained in my earlier blog … Continue reading Illusions, Delusions as the means for God men to elude

Truth and Righteousness are my Nature

Truth and Righteousness are my Nature, NOT that of Sathya Sai Baba. In fact all the noble men and women of good faith who served him for their lifetime  had this same nature. Sathya Sai Baba was only a user of other’s nature good or bad. As Sathya Sai Baba himself said “Truth is One, Not Two”. There is only one Truth and that is explained throughout all my writings.   I will continue to speak truth – this is my Dharma. Even if 14 Avatars unite, they cannot change my resolve. I am deeply passionate about my work. My faith in myself and … Continue reading Truth and Righteousness are my Nature

Sathya Sai Baba and Indira Gandhi

Sathya Sai Baba always had a message or a quote ready for everyone  in order to teach them one thing or another. But several of his own quotes as well as of others were in reality applicable to himself. Indira Gandhi had a very appropriate message for him through her quote below  — There are two kinds of people, those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there. – Indira Gandhi Sathya Sai Baba belonged to the latter group. The ones who take the credit for … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba and Indira Gandhi

My message to Sathya Sai Baba devotees

Individuals and groups that are Pro-Sai need not be perturbed a wee-bit by any of my work and can continue to march ahead in their paths – chanting their Lord’s names and continuing to work for their own betterment and redemption of their sins (in reality none of them are sinners, they were convinced by Sathya Sai Baba that they have sinned and would need to receive absolution by serving him) Why is it that one needs to follow another? This needs introspection by that individual alone. Following someone to emulate perceived goodness that is impractical to achieve is futile. Following … Continue reading My message to Sathya Sai Baba devotees

Sathya Sai Baba’s actions were motivated by unexpressed jealousy

The ulterior motives behind the actions of an individual are never spoken about by him, but can only be understood by the uncommon ability of even common men through the process of observation and inference. A peek into the mind of Sathya Sai Baba – “Oh, all the business men, technologists and entrepreneurs are succeeding so much today. They are worth billions of dollars and are also giving away the same in charity. In this process, have they not become Gods in the eyes of mankind? I alone am the real God. I need to at the least build an … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba’s actions were motivated by unexpressed jealousy

Sathya Sai Baba – a world teacher or a dictator?

Sathya Sai Baba aspired to rule the world – as a dictator and the ONE and ONLY “The whole world will come to my feet” The above statement carried with it a deep desire to rule the world. Here is a Wikipedia extract carrying a description on Saddam Hussein’s Personality trait http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saddam_Hussein#Personality_cult As a sign of his consolidation of power, Saddam’s personality cult pervaded Iraqi society. He had thousands of portraits, posters, statues and murals erected in his honor all over Iraq. His face could be seen on the sides of office buildings, schools, airports, and shops, as well as on Iraqi … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba – a world teacher or a dictator?

Thanks to the Sri Sathya Sai Drinking Water Project ??

Water woes Anantapur http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/andhra-pradesh/no-end-to-water-woes-in-anantapur/article5007657.ece This Village Komatikuntla is less than 200 miles from the abode of peace (put- apart-the-i) The showcial work that Sathya Sai Baba put up by taking his Water project to Chennai, was to gain some visibility utilizing the image, power and influence of the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister. Hey Sundara Vadana, Hey Padmanabha – oh omnipresent Lord Sai Nath – please shower your grace on these poor villagers.  Although time and space are of no limitations for you, this village is only less than 200 miles away from your former abode (err….current abode…since you are the … Continue reading Thanks to the Sri Sathya Sai Drinking Water Project ??

Sathya Sai Baba and the Intellectual

Sathya Sai Baba was extremely obsessed with proving himself as the Godhead and Avatar who has come to save mankind (not sure from what, given that he declared that nothing happens without his will?) In this effort, he could go to ANY length and use ANY methods to establish this. His thought process was – I have only one life, I need to do establish that “Sai” is none other than Rama, Krishna, Allah and Jesus. (By inserting this new name subtly  in songs, names of students, hoardings on buses, names of shops, wherever possible…..) His efforts were towards establishment of … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba and the Intellectual

The glory, of Srikanth Uppuluri …

“In truth you cannot understand the nature of My Reality, either today, or even after a thousand years of steady austerity or ardent inquiry, even if all mankind joins in that effort” – Sathya Sai Baba Sathya Sai Baba was an expert in making the above kind of proclamations to further his popularity. No doubt, his mastery in conning several hundreds of ignorant, unquestioning and faithful people is indeed commendable. He took on the garb of a God in human form and this in itself, kept people away from questioning. All logic dissolved when the entire atmosphere was filled with this … Continue reading The glory, of Srikanth Uppuluri …

Sathya Sai Baba – teachings versus realities

Sathya Sai Baba, in order to invite and attract people from all over into his abode of atrocities, said – Come. Examine. Experience. Have faith. People came. People Examined. People Experienced but lost even the little faith they had not only in him but in themselves as well!! Such was the mighty effect of Sai Baba’s bullying!! Only those who dared to think will ever know his true reality. Several men and women, who understood his reality, ended their lives most tragically or went insane. This was due to the stark contrast between the reality they evidenced and the expectations … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba – teachings versus realities

Sathya Sai Baba Samadhi urinated upon by Super speciality hospital doctor

A Sacrilege has occurred at Puttaparthi Sathya Sai Baba Maha Samadhi Sathya Sai Devotees are saying that Super Speciality Hospital Doctor urinated on Sathya Sai Baba Samadhi Dr Navaneet being a Sai Devotee has darshan of the Samadhi everyday. Even on Sunday he had Darshan and while all devotees were returning he was seen to have urinated on Sai Baba Samadhi, so say the Sai Devotees Noticing this other Sathya Sai Devotees handed over Navaneet to the Police Police claim Navaneet is suffering from mental sickness Our Anantpur correspondent, Akbar will explain more in detail. Akbar, please tell us who … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba Samadhi urinated upon by Super speciality hospital doctor

Sathya Sai Baba’s desirelessness and selflessness

There was deep seated attachment in the statement “What I Will MUST happen” It meant that the self-proclaimed Avatar Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba could stoop to any low level to accomplish what he wanted. Here, something happening was no longer incidental, it was no longer an attitude of “If it happens fine, if not fine too” AND WHEREAS what he preached to devotees was exactly on the lines of the latter with respect to their desires. What then was Sathya Sai Baba’s desire? He wished to accomplish HIS desires through others, hence he made the statement – My only … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba’s desirelessness and selflessness

The Divine downfall – cause for the downfall of fear and rise of an even greater resolve

Several people have sent me emails warning me of the danger involved in writing about Sathya Sai Baba’s reality, which in fact is known to many, but is not voiced due to their own fear, disinterest in the topic, and interest in moving on with their lives. My many thanks to all for such love and concern. After having evidenced through direct experience, what an individual, in whom a family reposed their faith and trust, can turn out to be (a diabolical, manipulative, hypocrite who was only interested in using families to serve him), I know not of any fear … Continue reading The Divine downfall – cause for the downfall of fear and rise of an even greater resolve

Sathya Sai Baba – a Napumsaka in word and action?

Sathya Sai Baba proved to the world beyond any doubt that he was a Napumsaka or completely unmanly when it came to walking the talk, when the moments arrived for him to act and demonstrate his words and teachings in action. He and his surrendered set of followers were and still are always busy telling others (i.e the world at large) what to do, sitting comfortably on their bottoms and with full stomachs, but are never in the fore front when it comes to explaining why their Dearest Swami, the Lord Almighty ever present at all times everywhere cannot do … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba – a Napumsaka in word and action?

Sathya Sai Baba’s atrocities, what’s in it for victims, the justifications provided – An Analysis

Several Sathya Sai Baba apologists provide justifications to his actions of causing atrocities on people including murders through accidents and other seemingly natural causes also attributed as his “inscrutability”, marital discords by causing conflicts including marital rapes resulting in divorces, providing false advises called “his teachings” and causing people to lose their careers, wealth and property and also health and life. I analyzed these justifications after having considering them to be true (for the purposes of analysis only) to see if indeed the victims benefited in any way from undergoing these tortures. After deep reflection it became clear that the only one … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba’s atrocities, what’s in it for victims, the justifications provided – An Analysis

Of cults, spiritual organizations, mind programming, exercise of power and control

Below is an excellent article by a former follower of Guru Sri Sri Ravishankar http://artoflivingfree.blogspot.in/ It describes all aspects very much common among cults – those of unconditional surrender to the guru or in another words allowing him to exercise power and control over one’s own mind by  encouraging blind belief in his  teachings that serve to program individuals. Kudos to these folks who showed courage to stand up for what they believed in and the eventual victory over gurus who always operate from a underlying assumption that they are always right and that their words and teachings are “laws”, … Continue reading Of cults, spiritual organizations, mind programming, exercise of power and control

Sathya Sai Baba’s usage of people – the good, bad conundrum

Devotees, due to their faith, ignorance and good nature combined, had a number of imaginations about Sathya Sai Baba’s true nature. They were programmed to believe that he was an embodiment of love, and that his love was equivalent to that of a thousands mothers e.t.c. and this systematic programming was done by none other than Sathya Sai Baba himself calling the students as 24 carat gold, that they were all very good, that he loved them, protected them from this and that e.t.c. These imaginations and feelings of the devotees were in fact very genuine. But what people failed … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba’s usage of people – the good, bad conundrum

Sathya Sai Baba and the Golden Age (Throne?)

Sathya Sai Baba spoke much about a “golden age” for one and all. Sathya Sai Baba’s definition of Golden Age was at best a period in which he envisioned himself sitting on a Golden throne and ruling the world – fueled by egotism and conceit. Even during his lifetime, he failed to deliver basic peace to his own followers. What was the reason for this? Sathya Sai Baba played by the  faith and  superstitions of the masses –  thereby  encouraging both of these aspects. There are several evils that have plagued India as a country consisting of a largely rural and … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba and the Golden Age (Throne?)

Sathya Sai Baba – the Divine Father gets his daughters raped ?

Sathya Sai Baba claimed Omnipresence, Omniscience and Omnipotence which meant he IS present everywhere at all times, knows Everything and is capable of everything. Apart from these attributes, he also claimed as consisting of Pure Love for all beings. And like his blinded followers say, “Nothing happens without his Will” Is he then the DIRECT cause of events such as the one below ? Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba – the Divine Father gets his daughters raped ?

Symptoms of the effect of SAI – Systematically Applied Infection

Further to my post on how Sathya Sai Baba entered households, Those who came in contact with Sathya Sai Baba will agree fully that they had primarily 2 phases in their life – a pre Sai Baba phase and a post Sai Baba phase Before and during the period of coming into contact with Sathya Sai Baba – they are plagued with problems for which they are asked to pray to him, give letters, and worship him at their homes using his images. During such a phase, Sathya Sai Baba made sure that he did not talk to these people … Continue reading Symptoms of the effect of SAI – Systematically Applied Infection

For Sathya Sai Baba people were like a set of playing cards

When Sathya Sai Baba died, it was said that he was a people’s man. With a poor and uneducated background coupled with a deep desire to make it big in the (false) jagath what did he have in order to build the steps to gloridom? It was only people, people and people. People to bring in money, people to perform the activities, people so conditioned by his teachings to attribute all of this to him. Sathya Sai Baba always mentioned that the infrastructure, institutions e.t.c. coming up in the remote village was all due to his glory and that he … Continue reading For Sathya Sai Baba people were like a set of playing cards

Sathya Sai Baba is unfathomable, incomprehensible?

Sathya Sai Baba declared that he was unfathomable and that the human mind would take a hundred thousand years to understand him. He described himself as being inscrutable and incomprehensible. Why was this so?  Why did he think that people would not be able to understand his mind games ? Sathya Sai Baba’s belief that  none would understand him arose from the fact that he knew that devotees and seekers, who had the attribute of faith, lacked or ignored questioning. He also encouraged them to do so and called it unconditional faith. He also knew that people associated with aspects related … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba is unfathomable, incomprehensible?

Sathya Sai Baba’s inscrutability and dark side – A confirmation

Sathya Sai Baba always operated through indirect means – whatever the task may have been which he wanted to get done. While I was at Ashanti Nilayam, meeting and talking to several people in the ashram and understanding the facts regarding their lives, and putting everything together slowly, I received a box from a stranger who looked like a help at the ashram. When I opened it, I saw dry fruits along with a note which said : “I warn you not to comprehend me.” I later came to know by discussing with long-timers in the ashram that Sathya Sai … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba’s inscrutability and dark side – A confirmation

Sathya Sai Baba – Not at all a symbol for hopes of a reformed India

Sathya Sai Baba apologists have always attempted to steal the credit for good works happening across the world, and attribute it to their selfish SwaMe. Several such stories are fabricated and this is precisely what his minions at Radio Sai – the marketing department are always busy with. The story in this article http://aravindb1982.hubpages.com/hub/Anna-Hazare-and-Sathya-Sai, which is cooked  up to attach Sathya Sai Baba’s name to everything and anything that is riding the current wave among the masses is completely unfounded. One can see several images of Anna Hazare and Arvind Kejriwal’s campaigns here with backdrops having the pictures of Mahatma Gandhi, … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba – Not at all a symbol for hopes of a reformed India

Sathya Sai Baba failed to accomplish through the path of Dharma

Sathya Sai Baba – the “world teacher?” never had to search for words when it came to flowing discourses in poetic phrases that enunciated the principles of Sathya, Dharma, Shanti and Prema. He also taught that one is not the body but the spirit or soul that is immortal. He preached that all are verily this same immortal Truth. With respect to this very teaching, he placed himself beyond the objective world and in a realm where he believed he was pure and unattached. In his self-eulogistic, triumphant echoes of knowledge and the feeling of knowing – he forgot completely that the values … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba failed to accomplish through the path of Dharma

Sathya Sai Baba – The Vedanta Vyapari or Businessman of Vedanta

What did Sathya Sai Baba do for a living? –  He Sold Vedanta. That Vedanta for which saints and sages sacrificed their lives. Let readers not be confused – for Vedanta in itself is pure and  holy. All that is in the Holy Scriptures be it from any religion is the same basic principle. What is that basic principle that is the foundation of all teachings, scriptures, holy books ? “All Beings are Equal” Why did they believe that this  was necessary for the human race? So that humans, who have the power to discriminate do not act with animal instincts … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba – The Vedanta Vyapari or Businessman of Vedanta

Sathya Sai Baba’s Tricknology

Sathya Sai Baba referred to technology as Tricknology, although he and his organization used technology for their entire marketing and propaganda campaigns. Here are some of the examples of that very Tricknology which he used 1. Video Cameras and Camera men who captured all the events at his Ashram 2. Audio Systems for trumpeting his public works 3. Security Systems for his ashram 4. Internet Broadcasting using Youtube, CDs, DVDs etc. 5. Sathya Sai Baba organization websites 6. WorldSpace Satellite Radio 7. RadioSai IPhone applications 8. Facebook It appears that when Sai Baba used Tricknology to promote his tricks, his … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba’s Tricknology

Sathya Sai Baba – the Beggar who Never Asked

Sathya Sai Baba – the Embodiment of Ingratitude and a Thankless Being, through his Mind Manipulative techniques, got wealth as well as work from all the ones who toiled for him in the name of faith. While he himself and everyone world over, know that the entire wealth in the name of his Trust  today, in reality belonged to the ones who donated through their sweat and blood., never did he speak in detail about all these people who made innumerable sacrifices. He always spoke about himself. Such was his greatness and his selflessness !! He also once asked the … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba – the Beggar who Never Asked

Sathya Sai Baba’s mind manipulative techniques

I am superior to you in all ways. I am the best among the best. (and by the way, I and you are one) You are a sinner. I am pure (and by the way, I and  you are one) However great you may be or whatever great work you may have done you need to be humble & should not showcase (I will do the show casing in my name) You need to introspect and ask what your faults are and what guidance you need from me to improve and transform yourself. I am the embodiment of perfection and … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba’s mind manipulative techniques

Sathya Sai Baba’s own statements gave him away

Often Sathya Sai Baba engaged in discussions on spiritual topics with the top brass of his organization such as John Hislop, Kasturi or others. During such discussions,  Sathya Sai Baba’s own statements and responses  arising out of his arrogance gave him away The purpose of these discussions from Sai Baba’s perspective was to ensure that he sounded as the Giver of All Knowledge and also convey repeatedly and emphatically that the top brass had to establish him as an Avatar in the various countries they worked in. But when these dialogues are carefully studied, it becomes clear that he himself was fully … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba’s own statements gave him away

Sathya Sai Baba’s delusions and contradictions thereof

Sathya Sai Baba suffered from a number of delusions himself. These delusions were of course off shoots of “convenience philosophy” that he practiced. 1. Jagath is False This was perhaps the greatest of his delusions that he worked out of. Using this very delusion he caused atrocities on devotees and preached to them to rationalize away all their sufferings since, the Atma alone is true and the Jagath is false. Again, Calling the world or Jagath as false, he searched and looked for recognition in that very same false world. The Jagath was false for all purposes except the accomplishment … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba’s delusions and contradictions thereof

Sathya Sai Baba struggled to establish an identity for himself

Sathya Sai Baba, the great exponent of Vedanta (read abuser of Vedanta), always asked his followers to introspect themselves. He asked them repeatedly in several discourses, the following – a) Where from you have come? Where are you going? b) Who is Mother. Who is Father? Who is brother, sister? Who is wife, husband or children? These are temporary relationships in a temporary life that we all pick up and get attached to. c) Your wife did not come with you. She will be with you for about 20 years And she will not go with you as well. Why attach … Continue reading Sathya Sai Baba struggled to establish an identity for himself

How Sathya Sai Baba entered households – the Born into a Religion approach

Sathya Sai Baba needed devout families to serve him, adore and worship him. He also always ensured that this happen for generations of that family, since he wished to not fade into oblivion. Sathya Sai Baba used the “born into a religion” strategy to create families and therefore a population of people who were already bought into the Sai faith – these families were designed and meant only to serve him. In order to maximize the number of individuals serving  him through the decades that he lived, Sathya Sai Baba used both individuals, their families and future generations as well. How … Continue reading How Sathya Sai Baba entered households – the Born into a Religion approach

Sai Baba’s people capabilities were his strength as well as weakness

Sathya Sai Baba’s extra ordinary people capabilities were his strength as well as his biggest weakness. One may be brilliant but the question that finally remains is if he possessed true greatness. Sai Baba’s mind manipulative techniques were his strength with reference to the number of people who fell trap to them. But this very capability of his, became his biggest weakness with a different context of people – People who were sincere seekers of truth and beyond that were also deep questioners,inquirers and observers who could really discern his ulterior motives. The whole point was that it did not sink … Continue reading Sai Baba’s people capabilities were his strength as well as weakness

The True Agenda of Sai Baba – Live to Rule Not to Serve

Sai Baba  indeed generated lot of noise – some teachings – some sense, much non-sense, some fiction, some facts, money, central trust, properties, students, Sai families, brothers, sisters, Sai faith, miracles, healings, deaths, divorces, marriages, accidents, murders, rapes, chastity e.t.c .e.t.c ad infinitum. It is certainly confounding for the one lost in the details as to what was the primary and true agenda of Sathya Sai Baba? Understanding his true agenda is liberating in itself !! No further liberation either from life or from death is needed. 1) Serving humanity? This was least important to be his true agenda. Preaching it … Continue reading The True Agenda of Sai Baba – Live to Rule Not to Serve

Sathya Raju feared an Untimely Death throughout his life time

Even from his childhood, Satya Raju always feared an untimely death. He expressed his own fear indirectly as though it was his mother who really feared and he posed as though he was not at all perturbed and was beyond all fear. However, this was not the case at all. As much as he kept teaching people that the body is unreal and the soul alone is real, he always feared that someone would destroy his body through poisoning of his food, or through burning or bombing or other forms of physical attacks. (i)   Some people tried to feed … Continue reading Sathya Raju feared an Untimely Death throughout his life time

Sathya Sai and Anil Kumar – A teaching on ‘My’ ness

One early morning when Anil Kumar Kamaraju is returning back to his apartment from Nagar Sankirtan, he sees Sathya Sai Baba coming out of his house and Sai Baba’s saffron robes are all completely wrinkled. Anil Kumar – Swami, how come you are in my house so early in the morning? Swami – Fool ! I am everywhere all the time !! And Swami leaves. Anil Kumar enters his house and sees his wife in the bedroom completely nude. He is confused. He does not question his wife, but the whole day he gets into a deep introspection himself. He … Continue reading Sathya Sai and Anil Kumar – A teaching on ‘My’ ness
