Why Politicians Approve of Magician Sathya Sai Baba - 28 Nov 10

Manmohan Singh and Sathya Sai Baba

When we were still in India, on the 23rd November, we got the news that the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and many chief ministers and other high politicians of ruling and opposing party went to the birthday celebration of Sathya Sai Baba. I don’t know if you know this man who celebrated his 85th birthday but I have written several times about him without mentioning his name.

He is one of the most popular Gurus of India, popular in the whole world. He is also one of the biggest and richest cheaters I know. He calls himself an incarnation of god and pretends to have divine powers. He does magic tricks and thus materializes ashes for poor and gold for rich disciples. On special occasion a complete golden egg can come out of his mouth. Usually that egg is hidden in a handkerchief in which he seemingly catches it when it appeared in his mouth.

The BBC has made a documentary about him and his cheating years ago. They showed his tricks, they had witnesses and victims of sexual assaults and harassment from his side and they also talked with politicians who, like on his birthday, come to him and openly show their approval.

I don’t understand why they go to this cheater? Don’t they see that he only tries to get money out of people? But maybe that is also their reason to go, they also get some money. It could be that their parties get some big donations from him if they go because he must be billionaire.

I actually believe that these donations and the ‘blessing’ that he gives to them helped a lot that he has never been convicted for any charges by court even after many allegations for cheating and more. He has taken care that there are many important politicians who can hold their protecting hand over his blessed head.

India is a secular country, why do politicians show their religious interest in this way in public? If they want to worship, they should do it in private! But the Indian public has a religious mind, so another reason to do this in public is to give a clear message: I am also religious, I am one of you! Especially when they are in high positions, politicians do this kind of advertising.

I actually don’t know exactly if I should be sad or angry about this. As a politician you are also an ideal, you are supposed to show people through your action what is good and what is bad. This is why it is so bad when politicians are corrupt – if they are, why wouldn’t everybody else be? And this is also why it is bad when they go to visit fake gurus and congratulate them to their birthday, whether they go for getting a donation or for getting more votes.

Here is another video in which you can see that he still does his magic tricks even though he is now in a wheelchair at his 85 years. Have a look at 3:53min: http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=461967654102

I find this so amazing. How is it that so many people can be fooled into believing in this sort of a person? Is there something that I am missing here. Did he person some grand miracle, or is this just handy dandy advertising? A marketing ploy to give people something to hold on to. Is it that they know he is a fraud but they are desperate for something that they'll overlook the crookedness? I'm confused.

Now Sai Baba is about to die. He is on life support, without machines he would already be dead. His followers are doing prayers and ceremonies for his soul. The question that I am asking myself is the following: why, if he is God, can he not leave this world with a little bit of dignity? This is the worst situation that I can imagine a human to be in! If he has so much power, how come he did not die peacefully in his Ashram?

Thank you for sharing and writing about this! I was thinking about this SOOO famous Sai Baba. This is incredible - i have met Latvian people here in my country Latvia, who talk about Sai Baba and they buy books about him and i have met 2 woman who told, Sai Baba come in their dreams and they see him and he told things to them, and they are soooo into him! I was shocked a bit! Then I searched for info on him on net, because I didn't know anything about him. Then I saw videos with this golden eggs and ashes and I got confused. I asked my self WHY this happens? WHY do people follow him? NO ONE IS A GOD, GOD IS GOD, not human beings. Is it like in business? If there will be longing for the THING, the THING will come in the market for getting it! Is this all really about money and power and bahhhhhh....... This is such a time of change! I have been thinking why it is like this- that people like Sai Baba has such brain to understand the Vedas and tell them to people and use it for their own good... Swami you were right with your hard words "SELLING GOD"! I am always positive and looking forward for good changes! People like him will fall and truth will come to people's minds and hearts :)

Thanks for sharing your heart and feelings Swami Ji. As usual you are an inspiration.

It is crazy, Swami Ji, that people don't recognize this man as a cheater. It is frustrating and seems rediculous. People can believe in anything and strong beliefs feel real and legitament no matter how crazy they are. There is so much energy behind them it's like they overwhelm our senses.
