Breaking News: What Sai Baba says

about Kundalini: In his own words



"The Sai Baba Organization leaders are, and have been for many years, aware of this ongoing sexual activity . . . acknowledging that it happens, condoning it, and rationalizing it in countless ways of utter nonsense, i.e. “raising Kundalini," “anointing for purification,” or ridding them of their “lustful young desires.” To us this is ludicrous! This has all been kept “hush, hush” from the devotees. Is this not typical of a cult society? "

Terrie, since you specifically asked if kundalini awakening was being done by Sai Baba to the young men whom he sexually touches, here are Sai Baba's positions on the kundalini concept:

From:Conversations with Sathya Sai Baba by John Hislop

Page 134:

Sai: Kundalini shakthi is balance in mind and action.

Hislop: But Swami, kundalini yoga is supposed to mean the kundalini power rising up the spine.

Sai: That is not real. It is just speeches. People claim this happening and boast about it. It is big ego.

Hislop: Does Swami mean that there is no kundalini power or energy that starts at the base of the spine and rises up the spine ?

Sai: There is no such thing. That is just big talk and big ego.

Page 139:

Hislop: But Swami, how about the idea that the snake of kundalini awakens at the base of the spine and awakens each chakra as it rises up ?

Sai: That energy is prana. It is imagined as rising up the spine by the practice of pranayama. The practice of pranayama is dangerous unless all circumstances are exactly correct. It is not necessary and Swami advises against it.


It appears that even Sai Baba doesn't really contribute to the concept of kundalini, and in fact seems to completely disagree that the kundalini power rises up the spine etc... he even says he doesn't advise pranayama for awakening kundalini.

When this is the case, how can Sai Baba devotees claim that Sai Baba is raising "kundalini" of the young men he has sex with ??

These statements of Sai Baba himself rule out this explanation from the SB devotees!!
