Main overview of the sexual allegations against Sai Baba through the decades and index of further pages detailing the accusations from all quarters
Sexual abuse complaints with impunity against Sathya Sai Baba. Serious allegations put forward in signed letters to the Sathya Sai Organization by Mrs. Payne in 1980 and by Alaya Rahm on a BBC documentary still stand, as they were never legally pursued as libel by Sathya Sai Baba or any of his institutions. Were he innocent, he could with his Government and judiciary behind him, get a fair trial in India. Yet he dare not try to clear his name because the full facts and testimonials – and affidavits held in London – plus witnesses claiming they were abused by him could then stand forth under foreign ambassadorial protection.

‘The Secret Swami’ & U.S. State Department Warning against Sai BabaTanya Datta of the BBC reports that the November 23, 2000 US State Department 'Travel warning page and Consular information sheet was confirmed by the US Embassy in Delhi as referring directly to Sathya Sai Baba
Sathya Sai Baba and the faked Duke of Edinburgh Award Despite a rebuff from the Duke of Edinburgh Award for false representation in the name of Sri Sathya Sai, this wannabe Nobel Laureate is still eager to have his 'holy' name associated with the award, having reintroduced the false publicity about it on his official websites.
Sathya Sai Organization’s fear of investigative media Dr. Michael Goldstein, international chairman of the Sathya Sai Organization wrote an urgent private circular warning all members to avoid all investigative media (after the BBC filmed him secretly).
Sai Baba's miracles The main testimony about Sai Baba faking 'materializations 'comes from devotees - many of whom lost all faith in him as a result. Others remained believing this to be 'a test of faith'! Faking is seen clearly on video clips
Sathya Sai Baba claims of bribery! made during his infamous angry and lying Christmas Discourse, 2000.In which he refuted his lifelong teaching that there is a 'divine spark' in everyone, denying this of "hard-hearted" persons, especially his many young male accusers of sexual abuse, calling them "verily demons".
Cash for Honours, Sai Baba Style The subtlety shown by Sathya Sai Baba in obtaining donations and testaments is exceptional. He gives blessings and some cheap trinket (containing some gold but only synthetic gems) to the well-to-do and the grateful victim usually pours cash to him. No case is more remarkable than that of the US billionaire, James Sinclair!
Sai Baba (Baa-Baa Black Sheep) a misunderstood 'Second Coming' Sai Baba declared he is the one Jesus said would 'come again'- that Jesus actually said 'Baa-baa', and that the Lamb of God and suchlike was a misunderstanding! SB has been acclaimed as the Cosmic Christ.
Sathya Sai and the Turin shroud photos It has been claimed that SB took a black-and-white photo of the Turin shroud image, passed his hand over it and it became a colour image. No independent witnesses or verifiable documentation is found. In fact, it is a painting by Ariel Agemian, combined with the image on the Holy Shroud of Turin
Sai Baba's fame and name Claiming that name and fame should never be striven for, Sai Baba strives for them continually, letting the organization which bears his name promote him to the skies - on scores of websites, radio sai, at meetings in many very costly public venues, as well as in his centres around the world. See also Sai Propaganda
Sathya Sai's good works Though there are numerous good works by followers of Sathya Sai Baba, they are done in the name of a person who - bearing the name 'Truth' (i.e. Sathya) is still a proven liar, fraudulent 'materialized' and stands very widely and credibly accused of sex abuses and complicity in murder cover-up.
Sai Baba Lies SSB angrily attacked his critics as demons and Judases in 2000 on Xmas day for taking money to make allegations against him. A direct falsehood without a shred of evidence. He imagines his critics are jealous of him, but they are disgusted by him. See also Transparent Sai lies
On Visiting Sai Baba ashrams All one needs to know - but is not told! Why foreigners visit his ashrams and some of the many and tiresome difficulties plus outright dangers they risk from theft, corruption, embezzlement and yet far worse. Buying a mini-apartment is now exorbitantly expensive, and one gets absolutely no legal rights, even of occupancy for more than up to 1 month per annum! Books and videos of the ashrams give highly misleading 'Prashanthi' propaganda. In the ashram one is supposed to keep oneself strictly to oneself, not talk, not form friendships or other associations. The reason given is pseudo-spiritual, the actual reason is doubtless the attempt to control information, especially suppress negative facts. The security arrangements with metal detectors, undercover and armed security staff, close body searches (men and women) to remove all objects that may threaten Sai Baba! [claimed to be for the protection of devotees!} Out of the supposed millions who have been through the ashrams during 60 years, remarkable few credibly claim healing of any significant kind.
Sai Baba: Prayer, not environmental awareness? Sai Baba regards worshipping the earth as a goddess is right and that scientist are ignorant of the inner significance of things! Aeons of Indians praying to Mother Earth have not made the planet any more safe, less polluted... but species death, global warming and a host of related problems are flourishing... but Sai Baba does not suggest anything for all of that other than planting trees!
How the Sathya Sai mythology emerged beyond India On the origin of much of the more fantastic mythology about Sathya Sai Baba
Sathya Sai Baba crying (video) See the short video clip from his 85th birthday celebrations in which he breaks down and cries during the ceremony. (Click here – 3.9 Mbs This video clip was extracted and compiled from a very long – boring – video)
Sathya Sai Baba – an enigma or a myth?If indeed, as has been reported, Sathya was born as a physical hermaphrodite (with both genitalia, which occurs and is a medical fact) this would explain much of the mythology around him from his earliest years. That it is the case is backed up by diverse reports. In the 1920s in remote Andhra Pradesh the villagers would surely have thought the child a Divine Phenomenon - Shiva and Parvathi in one, Purusha and Prakriti in one body.
The transformation of India by devotees of Sai Baba Conversion to what followers believe is Sathya Sai Baba’s spiritual panacea to save the world and liberate themselves from the sufferings of human life (not least through avoiding being reborn) has observably not radically changed India at all.
