An Introspective Exercise For Fearless Sathya Sai Baba Devotees 

Posted by Barry Pittard on May 22, 2011


There have been great crimes, manipulations and betrayals. There has been the psychological condition of a greatly charismatic but profoundly flawed master of deception. And there has been our own beguilement. See:  Robert Priddy and Barry Pittard On Dr G. Venkataraman – Sathya Sai Baba Global Propagandist

Because the depth of deception and of self-deception are so deep-layered, it is often not possible to assemble all the answers one might wish. In the face of this difficulty, I suggest this approach:

  • carefully note down, firstly – well away from distractions! – and in brief form, those misgivings one has had while involved in Sathya Sai Baba activities, and which one has swept from one’s mind – the contradictions, the anomalies, the autocratic deeds and policies, the conflicts concerning what one would ordinarily regard as against the law, or against ethics, or against common notions of fairness and kindness, etc.
One can consider, for example, how people have left or been cast out of the Sathya Sai Organization. That is to say, people whom you had long regarded as being decent and good, as indeed they are still thus regarded in their lives in their wider communities.

It is, as I say, a rigorous exercise – about facing those anomalies, contradictions, conflicts, dissonances – only as questions. NOT looking for answers.
