News on Sathya Sai Baba – November 2011

leave a comment »

Barry Pittard makes a useful comparison between the failure of the international Sathya Sai organization and the growing efforts of the grassroots Occupy movement. In many developed and developing countries, this populist groundswell reflects huge social alienation and, on many levels, including mass protest, opposes widespread corruption in corporations and governments around the world. Pittard comments:

“Sathya Sai Baba and his cult always failed to face political and corporate power. They themselves are part of the corrupt system. His successors now fight out power struggles among themselves.
The international Sathya Sai Organization “good works” philosophy plays perfectly into the hands of the power elites, who have nothing against charity. We all like to feel good. Big-name donors to the Sathya Sai cult are legion, especially in India, and from among the Indian diaspora worldwide. 
But those many ordinary citizens from many cultural backgrounds who people the Occupy movements reflect better educated populaces than ever before, and are thus able to use social media such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube etc., to great activist advantage. Sathya Sai Baba and his organization could never, and would never, have initiated or supported a mass movement like the Occupy movement”.  See  Occupy Movement Exemplifies Sathya Sai Baba’s Failure As Social Reformer
