Fake sidhis and nothing more

nalabonga's picture

Satya Sai Baba is a classical example for a faked guru if someone is looking for signs: too much sidhis, too mucg rumors about child molestations and crimes and above all too much popularity.

Been to Puthaparti and ran away as fast as I can seeing all the robot-like followers marching the streets in this spooky town.

His popularity - more than it sheds a bad light on him it tells a lot about people, about the ignorant masses and their lost ways even in spirituality.

Beware!

Simplistic

Oh thank you but no, sathya sai baba is defiantly not my true self, almost everyone ever walked on earth may be considered to represent my true self but not this man. Sorry if it offends you. His ways, his deeds, his words decently do not echo mine.

And another correction - Sathya sai is not a name given but a name taken by the one behind this name.

And I'm talking about this man, not about his name, not about anything paranormal or metaphysical, not about souls, not about selves, not about oneness or God - these all in this context serve only to escape from truth and self honesty.

OH GOD...

so you are god.. everything is god... So why you are giving more importance to a particular entity as a god.

So give the same importance to everyone in this world.. Give the same respect what you are giving to the baba to everyone.

If you think deeply it's impossible to do this for a person who is in the grip in the maya.. So we need a guru. But we need to choose a guru who is enlightened and who sees himself and others as god(like sri ramana maharshi, Sri Rama Krisna paramahamsa).

Swami Vivekananda enlightened in the presence of the enlightened only. I didn't see even a single person who came out as an enlightened person from the presence of satya sai baba(because he is not an enlightened one).. Just I'm trying to help you people... Ask your intuition who is right what is right.

I'm not blamming him(baba).. He is also in the grip of maya(ego).

Gurus come in different shapes and sizes.

Harish, I too put Rama Krishna and Ramana Maharshi way up on the list. But even if you compare these two they were very different from each other. Also, it would be impossible to say that none associated with Sathya Sai Baba have become enlightened. The numbers that have visited him over the course of his life are vast. Not all who are realized become known by the public at large. And on your request to use my intuition, I have along with my intelligence and yes common sense. There is no way to explain the phenomena of Sathya Sai Baba other than avatar. If you seriously investigate for yourself by communicating with actual devotees and observing the works accomplished by the organization and you explore the myriad miraculous occurrences surrounding Sathya Sai Baba I don't think your initial conclusions will hold up.

Look thoroughly before passing judgment.

A guru or realized soul can use siddhis or not depending on the needs of the devotee. Miracles of the kind that transcend accepted scientific law are viewed with great skepticism these days. This doesn't mean that they don't occur. The classic texts advise that there are many paths. Jnana, Bhakti, Seva. The greatest gurus are not stuck in one frame. Sathya Sai Baba moves effortlessly between these different approaches depending on what is best for given circumstances. The fact that he is able to do this speaks volumes. He can on the one hand correct an 80 year old Hindu priest on the subtleties of a Hindu Ceremony. He can inspire a householder to move beyond selfishness and serve. He can clarify the path for a devotee that seeks advaita. Some need miracles for inspiration, others don't. God doesn't mind either way. God just does what works though it may not be easy for us to discern God's method. May the veil be lifted for all asap.
