Sathya Sai Baba uncensored

Humble ignorance in ‘knowing’ God!
Humility and servility in the hope of  blessings or other gains – worldly or heavenly – is false humbleness. It denies one’s own judgement and autonomy, surrenders ones integrity and conscience.

Atomic physics Puttaparthi style. Deeply intriguing
Seldom has the spreader of such factually and theoretically false codswallop about science been hailed as Divinely Wise and All-knowing by a physicist, Dr. G. Venkataraman (ret’d), who is also the main propagandist for Sai Baba as head of Radio Sai!

Censored Indian National Television Film of Sai Baba Cheating
The TV clip with the bogus  ‘materializing’ of a necklace by Sathya Sai Baba was banned on Indian National TV (Doordaran) by order of then prime Minister Narasimha Rao

How the Sathya Sai mythology emerged beyond India
Stories spread by Dr. John Hislop about the alleged resurrection from the dead of the US millionaire Walter Cowan  were thoroughly debunked by researchers, while the same goes for a crucifix Sai Baba claimed to have materialised from the actual wood of the Cross. But these tales were most influential in establishing Sai Baba’s US following.

Does Sathya Sai materialize money? Transcript  of interview in Argentinan TV  about Sathya Sai Baba supposedly ‘materializing’ banknotes

Sai Baba Sexual Abuse of Alaya Rahm – and some key statements The testimony by Alaya Rahm on BBC’s documentary ‘The Secret Swami’ and Danish National TV stands unaltered. No court case has invalidated it, not can it be challenged in any court anywhere by the Sathya Sai authorities, for obvious reasons! It is true.

Sai Baba Cultists’ Gull Wider Communities Dr. Michael Goldstein and other Sathya Sai Organization officials scornfully rejected the approaches of all who reported sexual abuses and gave them no duty of care, but even returned letters unopened!  Their cultist betrayal of followers is only surpassed by that of Sathya Sai Baba himself.

Wild, Baseless Claims about Sai Baba Materializations
From the Argentinian TV documentary ‘LA HISTORIA DE SAI BABA (I)’ , Leonardo Gutter, leader of the South American Sai Organisation, demonstrated his wild inaccuracy as regards facts about Sai Baba.

“Good Chances” with a villager, Sathya Sai Baba
Sathya Sai Baba’s words reported by young men to induce young men into  having sexual relations with him was often ‘Good Chances’. It is the also the telling title of a book by devotee Howard Levin!

Sathya Sai Baba openly condemns himself Unforgiving threats and outright lies made in a Discourse while celebrating Christmas Day – of all days – by Sathya Sai Baba!

Overview – serious postings on Sathya Sai Baba in November 08

Sathya Sai Baba bedroom murders in ‘The Week’ Report from the Indian journal ‘The Week’ on how the bedroom murders reconstruction of the Sathya Sai Baba bedroom murders was progressing some days afterwards. A useful diagrammatic presentation helps sort out the facts.

The vague and unworkable nature of the abstract idea of Unity (with God, all beings etc.) General and speculative ideas of unity are highly misleading and set up unworkable ideals. Like other universal religious and political abstractions, these sweeping generalisations lend themselves to authoritarian agendas to obtain social control and manipulative power

The nature of ‘love’ – unconditional or limited? Study of the idea of love as eternal and unconditional, especially in spiritual and religious contexts – and how it is used subtly ways as a means of personal control and manipulation – especially in sects and cults

When Facts Fly The Coop of Massive Cover Up On problems for dissenting Sathya Sai devotees in making public their testimonies, and that they only contact those who can be trusted to strict confidentiality. This social networking serves to protect many of the unwary from getting involved with Sathya Sai Baba or his followers who are in in denial.

Sathya Sai Baba worshipped by India’s P.M.s etc. Indian Prime Ministers and Ministers for Home Affairs who worship as devotees a man who claims to be God Incarnate, all deities rolled in one and Creator of the Entire universe… a world laughing stock that leaders of a country can be so naive (or are votes and money the cause?)

Sathya Sai Baba balloon deflated The steady decrease in foreign visitors and donors to Sai baba has continued since the major revelations took off in 1999, expecially since UNESCO and the US State Department – plus the BBC – warned of the dangers of association with him

Sathya Sai Baba 83’rd birthday festival Sathya Sai Baba’s famous invitation to visit him, repeated in many ways, such as’Come, experience, examine…” is now worthless since he can hardly ever be met these days except by old cronies.

Puttaparthi on a hot day in October – Brian Steel made a surprise visit to see the ashram, and he discovered that things are not as they were. The gaudy propaganda venue, the Chaitanya Jyoti “museum” is undergoing damage-limiting renovation

Sathya Sai Baba forced his editor to lie outright Sathya Sai Baba made V.K. Narasimhan write an untrue article in his son’s newspaper The Tribune so as to refute the facts of corruption in the Sathya Sai Central Trust

Ex-NASA Scientist and Wife Test Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘Grace’ Alvin Drucker was banned from the ashrams and the organization for marriage to Yaani (now Drucker) who was later brutally raped by a criminal in front of Sai Baba’s shrine on holy Shivarathri night. She denied it was her who was raped as she is not her body! This is the measure of Sathya Sai’s “protection” of his devotees!

Recent postings concerning Sai Baba and his movement

The servitude of Mrs. Ratan Lal in Prashanthi Nilayam – directly recorded notes October 1988 [by Robert Priddy]. Her travails under the aegis of Sathya Sai Baba’s constant demand and wrath when she did not do everything perfectly, and even when she did so!

Prashanthi Nilayam notes – diverse reports Notes from my scanned diary for 1998, which cover: 1) the stinking cesspool scam 2) V.K. Narasimhan’s problems in editing with his one remaining eye 3) Return of banned Alvin Drucker with beard to Prashanti4) the rogue Convener N. Suri of the Sathya Sai Books and Publications gets his comeuppance from Sai Baba 5) Sai devotee and former judge Damodar Rao on how he’d like to punish child sexual abuse

Sathya Sai Baba’s aircraft and world tour A decade ago, Sathya Sai Baba informed his devotees that his aircraft is about to take off to bring his mission to the whole world… he told key leaders that he would visit Rome, the UK., Malaysia, Southern California… and last year he proclaimed in a discourse that “I am minded to make a world tour”

Getting at the Truth – Sathya Sai Baba There can be a big difference between telling facts truthfully and knowing what is factually true. Witnesses who are unknowingly misled – or who eagerly trust and believe – may relate their experiences honestly, but still misrepresent actual states of affairs for a number of perceptional, psychological and social reasons.

An experience of Sathya Sai Baba in the 1980s as now reinterpreted in the process of ‘getting to the truth’.

Sathya Sai Baba’s cognitively-challenged psychiatrist, Dr. Samuel Sandweiss On a typical error Sathya Sai Baba made in reporting what he had just heard from Dr. Samuel Sandweiss – his tame psychiatrist – and how he angrily gave him the bum’s rush when Sandweiss corrected his mistake (told by V.K. Narasimhan – all mention avoided by Sandweiss himself)

Tigrett’s donation to Sathya Sai Baba Super-speciality hospital And how the hospital was swindled of many millions of dollars by corrupt Sai officialdom.

Murder and other crimes at Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘Abode of Supreme Peace’ The supreme peace was rudely broken by the screams of victims as dozens of gunshots rang out – and by murders kept secret, and by many an untoward incident as is common to most religious sites and guru cults in India

Directly recorded diary notes – October 1990 on the donation for the Puttaparthi Super-Speciality hospital, Museum accident victim Michael Oliver, Sai student Sanjay Chibber, and diverse darsan details etc.

Sathya Sai Baba bedroom boys and a ghost story Sathya Sai Baba tells stories showing his belief in ghosts…  in one of his June 1998 discourses. He also recounts how 3 boys were sleeping in his bedroom when the ghost of Easwaramma, the mother of Sai, appeared in a worried state.
