KRAMER – ALSTEAD: ‘THE GURU PAPERS – AND AUTHORITARIAN POWER’

leave a comment »

THE SELF-PROFESSING ‘AVATAR OF THE AGE,, Sathya Sai Baba, is a typical Indian guru both in his claims, his methods and the way he relates to those who become his followers. He fits the pattern of  ‘spiritual teachers’ and his methods of manipulating his followers as detailed by Joel Kramer and Alstead Diana in their impressive seminal work ‘The Guru Papers, Masks of Authoritarian Power’ (publ. Frog, Ltd., Berkeley, California; 1993). Here are some links to explanation on how Sai Baba fits the die of an authoritarian exploitative guru:-

Deaths, suicides, murders ands cover-up at Prashanthi Nilayam

leave a comment »

Deaths by accident, suicides and murders have occurred quite regularly at Sathya Sai Baba ashrams or in connection with his darshan (or lack of it). Even his closest servitors have suffered unnecessarily and died in great pain (Prof. Kasturi, V.K. Narasimhan, Kutumb Rao), while his biggest donor’s wife, Barbara Sinclair, died in a taxi crash on her way to see Sathya Sai Baba who had called her specifically from the US. A lady was slashed to death in her new room at Prashanthi Nilayam, and a number of foreigners have been reported as having disappeared without trace over the years. Three devotees died in an easily avoidable accident when the dome of the Spiritual Heritage Museum came crashing down on them. One of his favorite students died in a car wreck, another’s body was found burned in Puttaparti (see Cover-up of Murder at the Sathya Sai College, Puttaparthi, and so on and on. Not to forget the murder of two of his servitors and subsequent execution of the four devotees in his own bedroom in 1993! The list of suicides connected to Sathya Sai Baba is considerable (see examples here).
