After the post on Sai Baba, I spent the last couple of hours reading more on him and watching some really disturbing and interesting videos on him. The more I see those, the more angry I feel for having gone there yesterday to get his “divine” darshan and more angry that I took my mom with me for this!
The stuff that I read in the internet were too disgusting to discuss here. But, if even 1% of those are true, then I hate myself for being born in a country that allows something like this to go on. Remember what was done to MJ (A man who was once every teen’s idol; about whom once the radio said “Your success is an american dream come true.”) when the stories of abuse surfaced? He was literally raped by the public and media. Now he is a living joke for everyone. But, with so many people out there accusing him and are ready to testify, I am surprised or rather shocked that my country’s legal system is so full of crap that nothing is being done. Then again maybe the stuff in the internet are not entirely true. But, has there ever been a transparent investigation into these allegations? These are what I could summarize from the stuff that i read on the internet –
- He is not always solemn and humble
- He is strongly connected at all levels of politics that governs my country
- He does not perform miracles
- He does perform conjurer’s tricks (which have been exposed in many videos)
- He has refused to perform these “miracles” in a controlled environment
- His mass advice sessions are more of mass hypnotism or controlled brainwashing sessions
- He has more money and power than probably most politicians in India
- People from all over the world have come to India to fall prey to his antics
- Many have accused of sexual abuses and advances
- Most of the stories of abuse seem to have similarities
- He is Gay
- People who speak against him are eliminated systematically
Some interesting links –
- Sex Scandals
- Pro-Sai site exposing some allegations as false and tailored
- Some realling interesting read
- Some really thought provoking videos
- Some excerpts from former students of the Sai educational institutions and reformed devotees
Now, what have I done here? Is this stuff ok enough to be posted on my blog? Will unhappiness befall me because I have spoken against the holy? Have I just trampled over the religious sentiments of millions? Hey! Its just my thoughts. I am not insulting anyone’s beliefs. I am not revoking any relegion. If you are offended by the content of what I have written, just ignore this post as the ramblings of an ignorent person. If you agree or disagree over anything feel free to leave a comment. I am just speaking out loud based on what I saw in the internet. Maybe I am wrong. Maybe I am not.
One California scientist’s introductory remarks here precede the transcribed text of The (second, ie, Sathya) Sai Baba’s “78th Birthday Anniversary” Speech on the “Year 2003” annual occasion of the graduation/commencement of his school students, given at his main ashram (called Prashanti Nilayam, “Abode of Perfect Peace”), in Puttaparthi, Andrah Pradesh province, southern India, Sunday, November 23, 2003.
The first Sai Baba is called Shirdi Sai Baba after the village of Shirdi where he lived, taught Muslims and Hindus and others alike, predicted his “spirit” coming again as the “re-incarnated” second Sai Baba, and died in the number of years as predicted before the birth of Sathyanarayana Raju, who, as the below described narrative explains, became aware and recognized as the Second Sai Baba, called Sathya Sai Baba (Sathya = Truth) and sometimes referred to as Parthi Sai Baba after the name of his village Puttaparthi.
Sathya Sai Baba has said he will live into his 95th year before his physical body’s demise and that “He” will “come once more” as the Third Sai Baba in a predicted number of years later and place told, as Prema Sai Baba, (Prema = Love) the Third Sai Baba in this spiritual lineage of the “Triple Sai Avatara,” all come as have previous genuine Avatars from India (Bharat), The Rama Avatar, The Krishna Avatar, The Shiva Avatar, (et al) and, from the Hindu view, others such as The Jesus Christ Avatar, all “come to Earth” to offer their “One Path Teachings” by living as disciplined and disciplinary examples/disciples of The Oneness of God, The Oneness of Truth, the Oneness of Love, and The Oneness of Peace, all innate to the Human Mind as The Oneness Spiritual Unity Understanding of The One God and of The One Law, The God of Love and The Law of Love.
In reading The Sai Baba’s messages and speeches, noticing carefully the “third person” references to the “physical human embodiment” one must for accurate understanding keep in mind “who” it is that is being referred to (this “re-incarnated Sai”) as the “I” in the “first person” parts of these talks and messages, ie, “The Sai” (“Psyche ‘psi’ of The Oneness”), the “character well portrayed” by “Its” human being embodiment form called the Bhagawan Swami Sri Sathya Sai Baba who “does what he does” by use of Language and Mind and very deep understanding of The Oneness.
