Closest Sathya Sai Baba servitor for decades, Colonel Joga Rao, did not believe in his miracles! A real brain teaser for anyone who still believes that Sathya Sai Baba does not do miracles by deception

Ex-devotee speaks out, testifying on sex abuse by Sathya Sai Baba Major testimony from a young man who was sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba, with video interviews

Sathya Sai Baba, dictator Idi Amin and G. Venkataraman The 'blissful trio' represented in a figurative composite image

Murders in Sathya Sai Baba's bedroom overview The infamous murders in Sathya Sai Baba's bedroom issue will not simply go away because the case was quashed by his devotees, the Indian Home Minister and Prime Minister at the time.

Why the Sathya Sai Organization IS a cult
Major experts' definitions of a cult give an almost perfect description of the Sathya Sai movement

The BBC and the 1993 murders The notorious murders in Sathya Sai Baba's bedroom and the criminal investigations that were quashed and covered up at the highest level of government will not go away.

Undisputable facts about Sathya Sai Baba by BBC The chief facts of importance in exposing the deception and fraud by Sathya Sai Baba by the BBC in the documentary 'The Secret Swami' are listed and explained, with links to all relevant transcripts and documentation.

Sai Baba miracles Are miracles - such as the Shirdi Sai Baba statuette in Bangalore which supposedly opened an eye - what they seem. Is belief in miracles anything more than belief? How do they improve the world or the person who believes in them to solve the real problems faced?

Sathya Sai Baba Educare teaching The oft-repeated supreme aim of Sathya Sai Baba's "spiritual teaching" is to cause the mind to die! Literally, erasing all sensory impressions and knowledge of the world in favour of a supposed omniscient understanding of the entire universe. This idea is behind attempts to attract followers to Sai aba through child and youth 'human values' education or so-called 'Educare'.

The Two Sai Baba’s and Miracles. (Intro) Miracles and supra phenomena are commonly reported around the globe in connections both with religions or without. What we take for granted are the vast achievements of human beings without miracles, which far outshine apparent so-called 'miracles', none of which have been scientifically controlled or validated.

Legalistic Abuse: Catholic Church And Sathya Sai Organization The Pope's recent apology about sexual abuses in the Catholic Church while visiting Australia has not been matched by Sathya Sai Baba... who is most widely accused of sexual abuses of young males.

Unique Shirdi Sai photo - privately owned At an orphanage in Sri Ranga Patna, near Mysore, a man called Halagappa has a photo of Shirdi Sai Baba which is apparently unique (i.e not available in public). He attributes the phenomena of ash and nectar are miracles granted by Sai Baba, but there are many good reasons for doubting them.

Sathya Sai Baba as the Vedic Trinity: Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva The excessive claims of Sathya Sai Baba are without any bounds whatever. He says he is all Deities rolled into one, the Father who sent Jesus, God Incarnate, Shiva and Shakti in full manifestation and much more.

Miracles vs. Magic - Sathya Sai Baba Vir Sanghvi, a leading modern journalist in India, challenges Sathya Sai Baba miracles and his devotees denials of the overwhelming sex abuse allegations against him.

International awards and Sathya Sai Baba Sathya Sai Baba has received no International awards, but his devotees in the Indian Government submitted his name to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee. However, his track record is so soiled in so many ways - and is so well publicized - that his chances for that are nil.

Sai Baba's Mission to Save India Despite having promised long since to clean up India - before saving all humanity, Sai Baba is still worshipped by India's top politicians, though India is still a land of major calamities! AIDS is but one of the huge problems Sathya Sai baba has never addressed.

Sai Baba's health - miracle or self-sacrifice? The second hip fracture Sai Baba suffered (in 2003) was operated but caused him to be stuck to a wheelchair for the remainder of his days. Untruths flourished so as not to lose followers and to cover-up the scandal: that the omnipotent avatar could not heal himself.

Sathya Sai miracle of transformation of India? Sai Baba has long promised to clean up India and solve its sufferings and problems before he does likewise for the whole world. He has not long to live, but India is still suffering the direst of calamities, among which are AIDS, extreme poverty, killings and violence for racial, religious, sexual and physical abuse of children etc.

Self-documented Folly of India’s Would-be God Huge discrepancies - true schoolboy howlers with colossal historical/religious error - are found in the "Omniscient" Sathya Sai Baba's published discourses. This is a man of many "stories" indeed!

Sathya Sai Baba teaching on sexuality Total abstention from sex by all unmarried persons is Sai Baba's requirement. Minimum sex in marriage is advised.
Otherwise, this self-proclaimed Universal Teacher has nothing to say about sexuality - a fundamental human drive which raises countless social and moral issues. Homosexuality and AIDS are totally taboo subjects for what must be obvious reasons (to non-believers).

Sathya Sai Baba Bans But Permits Foot Touching in 2001, Sathya Sai Baba said that his practice of 60 years, of offering what he deems to be his Holy Feet to be touched or kissed, should stop. Because it causes a sense of distance between man and God (i.e. him!)

Sai Baba promised Rs. 100,000 to orphan parents Sathya Sai Baba was amazed to hear that an Indian mother took her own life because she could not support her child. Where has he been all along? In ashrams like Prashanthi Nilayam (Home of Cloud Cuckoos), protected from the real world and living without a care, well provided for and insulated from ordinary people, surrounded by yea-savers. Did he hand any money out? Who could ever tell!

Shirdi Sai Baba's name hi-jacked by Sathya There is research showing the difference in values and teachings between Shirdi Sai Baba and that of Sathya Sai Baba, who has usurped his name and to do so made unfounded claims that Shirdi Sai predicted he would be reborn as Sathya. This is rejected by the main Shirdi Sai Sanasthan.

Sathya Sai Baba's foreknowledge of events? How did Sathya Sai Baba know in advance, as he has stated in a public discourse he did, of the coming murders of six persons in his own bedroom? An overview of the infamous 1993 incident where four devotees were murdered in cold blood in his bedroom by a blackmailed Puttaparthi police.

Sathya Sai Baba as ‘The Divine Mother’ Shocking evidence in a hagiography by a life-long devotee of Sathya Sathya Sai Baba on his draconian punishment of her son while a baby boy - relentless, frequent beatings!

Sathya Sai Baba Bans But Permits Foot Touching After 60 years of offering his supposed 'holy feet' to be touched and kissed, Sathya Sai baba realized that it cause a sense of separation between himself and others! So he banned it, but still permitted it to happen despite that. Typical of his complete disunity of word and action!

Undiscovered Photo of Shirdi Sai Baba Interesting photo of the so-called 'saint of Shirdi' has surfaced. Shirdi Sai Baba must not be identified with Sathya Sai Baba, who has with some success usurped his name and fame by taking the name Sai Baba.

Sai Baba's miraculous omnipresence? A Sathya Sai devotee's experience of a miracle of omnipresence by Sathya Sai Baba is easily explained. Some 'cold reading' was probably involved, which is demonstrated superbly by the UK illusionist Derren Brown.

After Leaving A Cult. Or ‘Moving On’ Barry Pittard considers the psychological questions raised by those who become disaffected of a guru or leave a cult. Where these people are non-selfish voluntary workers, they are inclined to find new outlets for their services, sometimes in other spiritual organizations, sometimes not.

Sai Baba promised vast miracle soon There is not so long left for Sathya Sai Baba - at age 82 - to perform his greatest miracles as promised - that is, to life an entire mountain range and to fly through the sky unaided.

Global disaster predicted - or not?
Among the many rumours Sai Baba starts in interviews (demanding it be kept private) are numerous predictions of a coming global disaster. Despite his cautions, he surely knew that many would spread the information - and he had reports of it spreading. yet he waited over a decade before having to refute this - in the best known prophesy case.

Sathya Sai Baba World Cult At Odds With Itself The erosion of the Sathya Sai Baba cult from within - the signs of the inevitable decline of its influence and some reason for this.

Sathya Sai Baba miraculously 'shows' 10 avatars Fabulous, unconfirmable stories are related as sheer fact by Sai Baba biographers Prof. N. Kasturi and Ra. Ganapati. Sathya Sai Baba - himself claiming to be an avatar, is claimed to have shown all the former Indian avatars to people in visions and 'illusions'.


Professor Anil Kumar, Sathya Sai Baba's 'left-hand' man Sathya Sai Baba sets the strictest moral standards as regards sexuality - no sex outside marriage, chastity while unmarried, minimum sex even within marriage. Yet he has a philanderer as one of his closest servitors and his interpreter, Professor Anil Kumar!

Sai Baba seen in ritual fire (photo) An example of a supposed 'miraculous manifestation' of Sathya Sai Baba in the ritual fire (homa) to which offerings to the gods are made by Hindu devotees. It requires imagination and belief to see it as anything special!

‘Secret Swami’ Cult Recruits At Prime Public Venues
So as to recruit new followers and members, big money is spent on promotion at expensive venues. This sect that Sai Baba promised would cover the universe, however, has not made noticeable progress since he was exposed.

Believing in Sai (photo) and spiritual growth Sathya Sai Baba's claimed omniscience makes some followers lose all sense and reason in favour of faith in him. But simple explanations lie behind many - if not all - of his supposed 'miracles'

A Strong India Can Bless The World Barry Pittard on Mahatma Gandhi - India's greatest inspirational leader


Shirdi Sai Saint’s Fame Spirited By Puttaparthi The hi-jacking of the revered saint of Shirdi's name - Sai Baba - by Sathya Narayana Raju of Puttaparthi has been questioned widely, such as by the scholar Marianne Warren.

Sathya Sai Baba - amazing sun miracle photographed? Sathya Sai Baba is presented in a photograph as holding the sun in a space between his two hands. A close look shows that some kind of double exposure is involved, such as is possible with almost any normal graphic editing software.

Sathya Sai Baba as 'Divine Mother - photos Sathya Sai Baba has a long history of cross-dressing, not least wearing saris, and even today wears a more female -looking attire than male clothes. The many sexual allegations against him indicate that this is not a coincidence.

 Shirdi Sai Saint’s Fame Spirited By Puttaparthi Sathya Sai Baba - originally called Sathya Narayana Raju - usurped the name of the famous saint of Shirdi, Sai Baba, when he was 17 years old. The hi-jacking of a revered saint of Shirdi has been questioned widely, such as by the scholar Marianne Warren.

Outright defenders of sexual abuse by Sathya Sai Baba Abject rationalizations by Sai devotees of crude sexual abuses they attribute to Sathya Sai Baba. These defenders of sexual abuse have had pages on-line for years, but the Sathya Sai Organization has not commented, but their pages are circulated within the Sai movement.

Ex-king Gyanendra of Nepal & Sathya Sai Baba Two different persons are worshipped as the Incarnation of Lord Vishnu... ex-king Gyanendra of Nepal and Sathya Sai Baba of Puttaparthi. Both are suspect, both have powerful accusations against them. The former murdered King of Nepal - himself seen as Lord Vishnu - and his Queen are said to have worshipped Sai Baba.

Sathya Sai water projects The projects to bring water to deprived areas and to Chennai were financed by Sai Baba followers worldwide. Though fruitful, much waste, corruption and unpredicted developments occurred, which it is now taboo to mention in the Sai movement, or even in the Indian press.

Miracle story - Sathya Sai Baba Sathya Sai Baba is credited with a miraculous healing of his fractured leg - yet all the indications are that there was not fracture - even his own statement to that effect! Professor Anil Kumar - his interpreter and true believing blind follower relates the old story yet again.

Sathya Sai Baba Miracles - with photos As with many of the amazing Sathya Sai Baba miracle stories, they do not stand up to the slightest independent investigation. Not only has not one of them been tested and found genuine by any independent scientists, but fraud has frequently also been shown to be involved, as in the rescue of an airplane over the Atlantic ocean.

How many million Sai devotees? Why the unreasonable fixation on grossly exaggerated numbers of adherents of Sathya Sai Baba? It proves nothing whatever as to goodness or truth - but is largely the result of indoctrination and entrapment through hearsay, clever propaganda and other techniques.

Sai Baba's self-glorification and his disparagement of others On Christmas Day, 2000, Sathya Sai Baba angrily denounced his critics with abuse and lies, while congratulating himself on his own achievements

The Sai Cult Trumps At Law, but is just a ‘Bookshop’ The Alaya Rahm case was withdrawn due to a legal technicality, there was no body in the US to sue, and Sathya Sai Baba could not be sued outside India, where he has government and Supreme Court protection.

Sathya Sai Organization damage-limitation after BBC exposure Organized attempts to done down the presentation of Sathya Sai Baba's miracles and excessive claims. Also, after the BBC documentary 'The Secret Swami', Dr. Goldstein set about strict controls of what members of the organization could tell the media (see his instructions).

BBC Hidden Camera in ‘Secret Swami’. Ethical? In 'The Secret Swami' the team had to film with a hidden camera to get the elusive chairman of a world organization, Dr Michael Goldstein of Covena, California, to face grave questions. This exposed his true nature as anything but sweet and softly spoken.

Deception against Sathya Sai Baba Sathya Sai Baba was roundly deceived by a Swedish imposter, Dr. Michael Nobel. Both his vaunted 'omniscience' and any plain common sense he has left failed when Sathya Sai Baba proudly announced how his own majesty had attracted Dr. Nobel, a far relative of Alfred (who was later denounced officially for announcing he would award four new Nobel Prizes). But Sai Baba did not realise with whom he was dealing - and employing

Sathya Sai Baba lack of awards
In hope of getting prestigious international award, Sai Baba and/or his officials jumped the gun. He has received no important awards so far, nor does he stand a chance, it appears, neither for the coveted Nobel Peace Prize, nor yet an Asturias Award.

Sathya Sai Baba as Nobel Peace Prize Candidate Sathya Sai Baba got excited by the visit of Dr. Michael Nobel (the great grandnephew of Alfred Nobel), thinking he might help get the Nobel Peace Prize for him. However, the Swedish Nobel Foundation complained of Dr. M. Nobel's attempts at meddling in the Nobel awards and threatened legal action.

Sathya Sai Baba official web site deceit exposed In an attempt to deceive followers, the Sathya Sai authorities reposted an article in an archive on their official web site - an entry which they were earlier Having been forced by the Duke of Edinburgh's representatives to remove bogus claims of a Duke of Edinburgh award to Sathya Sai Baba from their official web site, the Sathya Sai authorities waited and sneakily reposted the article in an archive on their official web site. Such attempts to cover up serious (and laughable) errors and wilfully deceive followers and visitors to their sites are not uncommon. No debate or comment which is not 100% positive is ever allowed on any official web site or document.

Study of ideas of eternal, unconditional, selfless love How the idea of love is 'sublimated' to an otherworldly realm and become anti-life and a subtle means to manipulate and control people both by secular interests and even more so by religions and cults.

Recorded talk with V. K. Narasimhan during 70th birthday of Sai Baba VKN's view on numbers attending (FAR below Sai Baba's estimates) and on his having to edit out Sai errors from the journal, plus Sai Baba's private directions to Central Coordinators concerning the organization and the price of rooms for delegates to his conference, who were originally invited for free lodging etc.

Sai Baba's teachings and education in academic isolation Through political clout, Sathya Sai Baba got his Institute of Higher Learning recognized as an University. However, the whole social and academic environment is based more on fixed values and indoctrination than any kind of educational research or dialogue, being a law unto itself isolated from the world community of open debate.

Dangers to the lives of critics of Sathya Sai Baba Murders, murder attempts, burglaries and criminal sabotage have been used against critics of Sathya Sai Baba. The unaccountable Sathya Sai institutions and organization do not even condemn these clandestine methods by those who defend them.

Sai Baba World Cult Leaders Fail To Meet Concerns on Libel The Sathya Sai Organization singularly failed, year after year, to meet deep concerns of many former and equally failed to act, at least openly, to a recent open letter to the Prashanthi Council about their condoning libel and character assassination on a large scale.

Tehelka.com on Godmen in Andhra Pradesh The Indian web site Tehelka.com published an article about sex abuse remarks on the similarity between various Andhra Pradesh godmen and how they are protected from prosecution, not least Sathya Sai Baba.

Photos of Sathya Sai Baba - Shirdi Sai Baba
Comparison of well-known photographs of Shirdi Sai Baba and Sathya Narayana Raju (who took the name Sathya Sai Baba) give a graphic comparison of the genuineness of their practice of personal renunciation.

Sathya Sai Baba 'Materialization' photos Blow-up of photo of ring appears beneath Sai Baba's waving hand. Also link to discussion of this and to photos of vibuthi marks on his hands after supposedly 'materializing' it.

Sai Baba - prediction of his death Mr. and Mrs. Ratan Lal were long-serving residents at Sathya Sai Baba's ashrams who knew much of what went on. Ratan Lal reports on what Sai Baba told him about how long he would live.

Sai Baba on wise and mad monkey minds
Sathya Sai Baba picks on interviewees to say they have worse than 'monkey' minds, but 'mad monkey minds'. He wants no one to see, hear or speak anything bad ("evil") about anyone or anything, but really he means about himself (he speaks ill of others himself)! All this is part of his cover-up activity.

The Goa murder case cover-up, and similar events concerning Sathya Sai Baba
The Goa murder case is still unsolved due to protection by police authorities of a top person - which is a known proven failing in various states of India, not least Andhra Pradesh where Sathya Sai Baba escapes prosecution due to top level protection.

Lunatic Devotee claims he is Prema Sai
Another amusing farce around Sathya Sai Baba - the premature birth of his next incarnation, so-called Prema Sai Baba, in the form of a divine Internet surfer!

Sathya Sai Baba’s Unique Avatarhood Hi-jacked
Having proclaimed himself the only 'full' (i.e. 'poorna') avatar of this Iron Age of Kali, Sathya Sai Baba is now claimed to have blessed a book by a woman who claims to be the Shakthi half of the poorna avatar! These absurd and megalomaniac claims are making Indian leaders who worship the 'Sai avatar' yet more of a laughing stock than ever.

(Web page) More sexual abuse evidence against Sathya Sai Baba
Yet another reliable witness tells of a warning he received about Sathya Sai Baba from Swami Muktananda after adjudicating in a case where two of his young boy disciples were sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba! Yet another instance (of Sai Baba sodomy) is also reported.

(Web page) Dr. Jack Hawley - defender of the indefensible, business consultant turned religious cult indoctrinator Writer of pseudo-management, pseudo-religious tracts whose dealings with the truth leave a lot to be desired

(Web page) The British Press on the BBC’s ‘The Secret Swami’ film Few documentaries that the BBC has commissioned in recent years have received such unanimous praise from commentators in the British media as 'The Secret Swami' - exposing the sexual abuses and other deceptions Sathya Sai Baba has visited upon his followers.

Evidence of a mendacious activist on the Internet Links to pages showing how a pro-Sai activist working full time to defend the Sathya Sai Organization and Sai Baba through character assassination of all his many critics, including many alleging victims of Sathya Sai Baba's sexual abuse and independent commentators

Banking on Heaven - the sectarian snare The promise of heaven (salvation, liberation etc.) is so powerful as to blind followers to moral values, especially those who are tired of life and hope for a better world in the afterlife!. There are many similarities between the Warren Steed Jeffs polygamous cult and the Sathya Sai Baba sect, such as alleged sexual crimes by the figureheads, indoctrination, male chauvinism and more.

Lingam emerges from Sai Baba's mouth at Shivarathri - the 'lingodbhava' Summary of the supposed significance of the lingodbhava and an examination of evidence, with video clips

Sai Baba's promises of Eternal Liberation Not least to those who saw lingams emerge from his mouth at Shivarathri.

Will India clean up its Augean police and political stables The Indian police and government's attempts to quash the murder of Scarlett MacKeown sends the same signal long observed, cover-ups to the highest levels in India, none more successful - and yet notoriously damaging - than that of the found young men executed by police in Sai Baba's bedroom.

The Sai Organization’s ritual ‘interaction’ revealed
In an attempt to create the illusion that the Sathya Sai Organization listens to its members and replies, a bogus 'interactive panel' demonstrates in its selectivity and non-answering techniques how cultist it really is.

Personal libel as an attempt to avert serious criticism
To avert attention from the grave facts about Sathya Sai Baba and his Organization, its supporters saturate the Internet with attacks on critics, attempted character assassination on a large scale, web pages and blogs full of purposive side issues, nitpicking details and false statements galore of a very libelous nature.

Famous editor confronted Sathya Sai Baba
One of Sai Baba's closest contacts with the 'outside world' of India - famed chief editor V.K. Narasimhan, contradicted him over advaitic teaching (among other things). Having died in 2000, Narasimhan left Sai Baba without a single realistic corrective to his excesses of ignorance and ill-judgement.

Sathya Sai Baba materializes money and gold
According to numerous reports and countless rumours, Sai Baba produces unlimited amounts of cash and gold on occasion. The Indian High Court has affirmed that he materializes gold out of thin air! The accounts about this are fabulous, though incredible.

Profile of a Sociopath - and Sathya Sai Baba
The characteristics of a sociopath described, which one sees in Sathya Sai Baba's personality - his words and actions - all too exactly (if one is not a blind believer that he is God Incarnate)

The nature of cults and the Sathya Sai Organization
The question of how to define a cult by use of a range of indicators is examined and the Sathya Sai Organization is subjected to examination accordingly, as is also a typical Sai cultists propaganda

Hundreds see Sai Baba on the moon
Seeming to see Sai Baba on the moon, the video show hundreds cheering the miracle... but this is Shirdi Sai Baba and NOT Sathya Sai Baba!!

Sai Baba - spiritual search for ‘the Self’
A look at the so-called 'spiritual philosophy' of Sai Baba and its logical and philosophical weaknesses, its labyrinthine and wholly otherworldly ideology make it a trap for the unwary, one from which many never liberate themselves.

Sai Baba’s philosophy sandbox - from the pompous to the asinine
Sathya Sai Baba's view of reality is a most unrealistic philosophical absurdity - extreme solipsism. It is self-contradictory and an expression of narcissism.

Blind Belief in Sai Baba causes human injustices The continued covering-up of all sufferings, untoward incidents, suicides, missing persons, and murders at Sai Baba ashrams by all official and foreign office-bearers in the Sai Organization causes many injustices against which victims are powerless.

Prophesy about Sai Baba both bogus and failed Sai Baba is heralded as becoming King of the World for the last 20 years of his life, which is allegedly from 2000 to 2020! This bogus prophesy is STILL trumpeted around by believers in his Divinity.

Sai Baba’s tennis stadium another white elephant?
Bizarre abortion of a tennis tournament between India and the Philippines due to Sai Baba's 'inauspicious' failure at the very last minute to appear to bless and inaugurate it in the new Puttaparthi indoor stadium.

Is Sai Baba's follower ship increasing? The Sai authorities and state government are investing in sports events instead, hoping to attract tourists on a yet larger scale - while local peasants flood in via the new rail connection. Wild estimates of Sathya Sai Baba's following do not alter the fact that many Westerners have left his ashram and fewer spiritual aspirants visit him, bringing fewer donations from abroad.

Sai Baba’s Service Projects (Seva) and Bill Aitken Sai Baba Baba deplores "self-aggrandisement; when self holds sway over the heart, no deed worthy to be styled Service can emanate." Sai Baba Baba deplores "the egoism and poisons the Seva of even veterans in the field, who go about extolling themselves as founders and promoters" yet he is ever extolling himself as a founder and promoter of service projects.So what about Sai Baba's own constant self-aggrandisement? Bill Aitken attacks those who expose these facts.

Major sabotage by Sai cadre averted Documentation of massive campaign against Sai critics run by close Sai servitor, former Sai college student and teacher who also reported murder threats against Indian skeptic B. Premanand by Sai Baba himself. Proven to be all lies and deception to discredit critics.

William ‘Bill’Aitken’s dishonesty in full bloom The travel writer Bill Aitken made a demagogic attack on the hundreds of former Sai followers who have testified about Sai Baba's deceptions and worse. His charges and smears show he has not researched the damning material to any extent.

William Bill Aitken’s base attacks on serious critics Claiming that finding fault in others is not so important, Bill Aitken proceeds to find fault - and at length - in all those who have rejected and rightly testified against Sathya Sai Baba's many major deceptions.

William McKay (Bill) Aitken’s academic shortcomings Presented as 'an expert in comparative religion', Bill Aitken proves never to have continued academic work after an MA in the 50s. His book on Sai Baba is very far from expert or erudite in 'comparative religion', instead it naively promotes Sai Baba as an apostle of love who Aitken loves.

Sai Baba appearances on the moon Someone claimed that Baba never promised to appear on the moon, but many news sources agree he did and his officials do not deny it anywhere. So this is psychological denial and disinformation to explain away undeniable and very embarrassing facts so as to retain faith in this deceiving guru and self-proclaimed incarnation of all Divine entities rolled into one!

Bill Aitken, bogus ‘religious expert’ on Sai Baba Promoted as 'an expert in comparative religion', William Aitken displays the faults of a subjective worshipper in his book about Sathya Sai Baba, many of whose claims he accepts uncritically without other evidence whatsoever. Not the work of a proper academician at all.

Excerpts from numerous letters from V.K. Narasimhan Scans made from mail received from VKN while he was one of Sathya Sai Baba's closest servitors and editor of his monthly journal - and scans of reports I made at the time - demonstrating how he confided many things in Robert Priddy which he never made public.

Sathya Sai Baba’s [Deemed] University Though now apparently recognized by authorities as a normal Indian university (though without any report or details on why its status has changed), this institution is nowhere to be seen on the list of the top 400 universities in the world.

New Avatar, Sai Baba’s counterpart - on the block The new claimant to be Sathya Sai's Shakthi is Bhagavati Srimad Sai - yet another supposed avatar. This latest self-proclaimed Indian "avatar" claims to be the Shakthi counterpart to Sathya Sai Baba's 'Shiva' incarnation, unaware that he has already claimed that for himself long since.

Sai Baba 82nd birthday - cakes and security This year it was a low-key affair under the tightest of security by armed guards due to alleged threats. Sai Baba gave no discourse,which is highly unusual as he used to take every opportunity of boring his public. He certainly seems to be past it all.

Sai Baba on the Moon - photo for his birthday? A devotee claimed that a photo of Sai Baba on the moon had been taken by his brother and that he would post it.It had still not appeared one month later... so Sai baba did not get this as a birthday present.

Who is Sai Baba and what is Robert Priddy’s agenda?

How standpoints change as understanding progresses

Sathya Sai Airport “white elephant” for sale! This airport has hardly used since it was built in the early 1990s, maximum a few medium jet flights per week. It has nonetheless been expanded to take Airbus 320s! Besides, the entire history of this white elephant is dogged with corruption and deceit.

Sai Baba Cult In Decline As Exposé Advances Despite a massive publicity campaign to promote Sathya Sai Baba as the World Saviour and much else, the recent ‘failed appearance on the moon miracle’ debacle has awakened many to what all exposé writers have long been documenting, massive fraud and deception.

Sai Baba’s mystic Moon Region ‘Chandraloka’ and related ideas

Deceiving ‘devotee’ makes bogus image of Sai in the Moon Sai devotee tries to con people by inventing image of Sai Baba appearing on the moon, claiming it to be a genuine miracle. More than over-heated imagination, outright fraudulence.

Oops! Apparently Sai Baba DID appear on the moon? Much discussed is the failure of Sai Baba to perform a promised ‘moon miracle’ by appearing on the moon on Oct. 4. Yet some persons claim they DID see this, or else knew others who (said they) had!

More Sathya Sai Baba Moon Madness The alleged miracles of Sai Baba in bringing down the moon (in miniature) to earth are in line with his recent well publicised failure to appear to his devotees on the face of the moon (October 4th) after promising it and much more!

False Predictions by India’s Revered “Omniscient Avatar"

Cover-up of Murder at the Sathya Sai College, Puttaparthi

More Mysteries at Puttaparthi Deaths and disappearances at Sathya Sa ashrams investigated by murder-threatened aged critic and BBC-celebrated Indian skeptic, Basava Premanand.

Sathya Sai Baba’s ashrams, deaths and suicides Some of the many deaths, suicides, murders and other untoward incidents which ashram authorities to all the can to cover up, often sending all visitors and residents away with only hours of notice.

Sathya Sai Baba thumbs down on humanity Further quotations from Sathya Sai Baba which demonstrate with all clarity that he is megalomaniac beyond all measure.

Global Warming and Prophesies Sai Baba's ignorance about the ozone layer, CO2 'smoke' emissions and about the threats of global warming again proves him not to be omniscient, but essentially an uneducated but smart villager. He uses cars constantly and regularly hires entire airliners to go on holiday, so his own 'carbon footprint' is bigger than that of most Indians.

India’s prophesied future world leadership? Prophesies about a clean-up of Indian life and morals made by Sathya Sai Baba, who claims nothing he undertakes or decides can ever fail, have never been realise. His students have made no impression on India's predicted world leadership, which is more of a leadership in poverty of the masses than a moral revival.

Sai Baba’s ‘Religious Universalism’ is based on gross ignorance Sathya Sai Baba demonstrates almost complete ignorance of the history and culture of other mainstream religions than Hinduism. His claim to present a 'universal spirituality' or 'Sai religion' is therefore entirely bogus, as he is painfully unaware of the real differences involved.

Sai Baba and the lunatic fringe An amusing example of how wild the ideas and activities of many Sai Baba devotees often are. A Danish 'clairvoyant' artist imagines she can live on molecules of light and the world hunger problems can be solved. More surprising is that her listeners applaud her madness.

Indian Development, Religious Myth and Superstition India's development is held back by superstition and false religious beliefs, as shown most clearly by the mass protests over the proposed channel which would go through the imagined ‘Rama’s bridge’ to Sri Lanka

Report: few Westerners stay in or even visit Sai ashrams Various local reports and photographic evidence show that fewer and fewer Westerners, especially from North American and European nations, are going to visit Sai Baba in Puttaparthi or Whitefield. Many countries with good IT connections are apparently more affected by this fall-off of followers than others.

Dr Venkataraman, a victim of emotional blackmail? The sad case of Dr. G. Venkataraman is another in a long line of emotional blackmails by Sathya Sai Baba, who exploits people's vulnerabilities to make them dependent on his supposed 'grace' and petty privileges at his ashrams (at the 'feet of God Incarnate')

Sai Baba and India’s atomic arsenal
Hypocrisy over non-violence is rife in India, where Mahatma Gandhi's ideals are touted but a vast nuclear and military arsenal has been built, with the silent acquiescence of Sathya Sai Baba, and with his public support of the governments and individual responsible!

Indian Government in major battle on Rama mythology Government-proposed canal through the 'Rama bridge' between Sri Lanka and India caused riots. Government backs down, minister offers to resign! Another victory for superstition and nationalistic religious fanaticism.

All wild animals gentle, but for man's influence (said Sai Baba)
Carefully edited senile ramblings to an adult audience 22-8-2007 by Sai Baba... on how elephants want bananas, on happy giraffes and zebras and all wild animals essentially as tame as can be!

Top Sai Baba leader spills the beans Leonardo Gutter, top Sai official in South America, and fully signed-up blind believer, makes incredible and unsupportable claims about thousands and thousands of miracles - and recycles false fantasy stories about Sai Baba and tax officials etc.

Failed Clandestine Political Lobbying by the Prashanthi Council Among many failed attempts to induce top world leaders to support Sai Baba, mostly clandestine, Dr. M. Goldstein prematurely claimed to be awaiting for a letter defending Sai Baba from sex allegations (unsupported by any investigation whatever) to be "subscribed by dignitaries of the whole world,” including signatures of the President of El Salvador and Guatemala, as well as Al Gore, former vice-president of the United States. No such luck! Neither with Tony Blair or the White House!

Faked “miracle”: crucifix given by Sai Baba to Dr. Hislop A cheap crucifix given to John Hislop was supposed to have been materialized by the paranormal powers of Sai Baba and contain actual wood from the Cross! All this has been soundly refuted by experts.

9/11 and Sathya Sai Baba’s claimed intervention! Dr. M. Goldstein claimed that on September 11, the devotees that worked at the Twin Towers and the Pentagon didn’t go to work that day or were late getting to their jobs due to the divine protection of Sathya Sai Baba. Of the actual victims, Leonardo Gutter said "that was the destiny of those who died there" Hard luck eh! In a grotesque follow-up, US Sai officials arranged to get the mayor of St. Louis to declare September 11 'Sai Baba day' and the Sai Organization held a heavily-promoted meeting on that day for no other reasons than to use the dreadful anniversary to promote themselves and their guru! Disgusting?

Sai Baba’s political marionettes Sai Baba dresses up Indian Presidents and Prime Ministers in absurd robes of pomp and parades them like playthings on occasion at Prashanthi Nilayam. Why they submit to such public humiliation (which it surely is in the eyes of the wide non-devotee world) can be partly explained by money, power and probably desperation for votes from any quarter.

Sai Baba’s failing health Photo evidence strongly suggests that Sathya Sai Baba is no longer fully compos mentis, backed up by his many recent absurd statements and signs of confused behaviour. He and his ashram are nonetheless now being promoted as mere tourist attractions (though no one who is not a total believer in his divinity can meet him in person any longer).
