The Spirit of Christmas - Sai enthuses over Idi Amin

Deep within the Spirit of Christmas no doubt, Sathya Sai Baba (in his Christmas Day Discourse, 2007) - and later also Dr G. Venkataraman - enthused about Sai Baba’s visit to Idi Amin in 1968, saying how Amin wept with devotion for Sai Baba. But Amin was one of the world’s most degenerate monsters. By contrast, Sai Baba and Venkataraman denounce Sai Baba devotees from many countries (who were once in high standing in the worldwide Sathya Sai Organization) who have made serious and responsible allegations against Sai Baba to many of the world's leading media and other institutions.

My blog on the Sai Baba-G. Venkataraman-Idi Amin heart-to-heart lovefest is at:

This includes a very potted history of some of the former devotee dissent to Sai Baba and the organization that so profoundly covers up for him.

The picture of Sai Baba, G. Venkataraman and Idi Amin hand-in-hand as "The Blissful Trio" is of course historically anachronistic but it is faithful to Idi Amin's actual historic effusions over Sai Baba and Sai Baba's and G. Venkataraman's Christmas 2006 effusions over Idi Amin.
