Nobel Peace Prize To Obama. India’s Past Candidate Sathya Sai Baba Long-forgotten

Posted by Barry Pittard on October 10, 2009


Photo:  Dr Michael Nobel. Portrayed in the New York Times as an imposter and 'black sheep' of the Nobel family, he has been repudiated by the Nobel Institute. Sathya Sai Baba and his officials, like Dr G. Venkataraman, have made serious errors in public. As well as being deputy chairman of the international Sathya Sai Organization, Venkataraman is head of Sai Global Harmony, which beams its propaganda to many countries in the world via the company of which Nobel is a director - WorldSpace International Satellite Radio Service. 

Note:  On behalf of our networked group of former followers of Sathya Sai Baba, I wrote to Dr Geir Lundestad, then Director of the Nobel Institute. In our exchange of emails made it clear that the information portrayed by Sathya Sai Baba and his leaders was at complete variance with the facts.


  • "News of the Obama receipt of the Prize stirs memories of those involved in submissions contra Sathya Sai Baba to the Nobel Institute a decade ago. They cannot but be reminded of the resounding failure of Sathya Sai Baba-disposed forces within the Indian government to nominate the guru for this same prize".
  • "The strange notion of quite how tasteful it was that ‘God’ should receive such an earth-bound award was remote from the consideration of excited devotees round the world. Sathya Sai Baba and his officials badly misrepresented the status of Dr Michael Nobel, a major player in WorldSpace International Satellite Radio Service, which broadcasts Sathya Sai Baba propaganda (Sai Global Harmony) to many countries in the world".
