"Leelas (i.e. miraculous events) are occurring throughout India in tens of millions of homes. Swami keeps his hand down so that publicity about the leelas will not spread. The rulers of the country know, but they keep it quiet. If the facts were to have publicity, millions would converge on Swami." (Conversations with Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba by J. Hislop, p. 36 old ed.,& p. 30 new ed.)
REPORTED 'MIRACLE MATERIALISATION' TO PROVE HIMSELF TO BE KRISHNA
"...Krishna assured man that He would save him from penury and grief and from sin and its terrible consequences, provided he adheres to Him, and adores Him.".. How fortunate you are that you have today the same Krishna, the full Prema-Avatar, moving among you. I shall show to you the very jewel (kausthubha) I was wearing at that time. (Here Baba waved his hand, and in a trice a brilliant flash of light revealed a unique jewel in his palm --- the kausthubha), famed in the Bhagavatha and the Puranas (mythological stories). A large greenish-blue emerald of unexcelled brightness, rectangular in shape and bordered by resplendent diamonds, hung on a gold chain. Then Baba moved among the students, teachers and other, and graciously allowed every one of them to see the sacred jewel from close)." (Sathya Sai Speaks Vol. XIII, p. 253f)
THAT NO 'FLASH OF BRILLIANT LIGHT' HAS EVER BEEN FILMED, AND THAT
SATHYA SAI BABA "MATERIALISATIONS OF DIAMONDS" HAVE ACTUALLY
BEEN EXAMINED AND FOUND TO BE CHEAP SYNTHETIC STONES WITH TINFOIL
BEHIND TO INCREASE THEIR REFLECTION. SO WOULD A REAL 'KRISHNA' NEED
TO FAKE IT, THEN?
A 'PROOF' BY SATHYA SAI THAT HE IS BOTH RAMA & KRISHNA COME AGAIN... THE PREPOSTEROUS "CASE OF THE WEEPING SARIS"
In January 1968, Dr. John Hislop taped interviews he had with Sathya Sai Baba. This ever-uncritical and naively trusting 'seeker of truth', who had gone from guru to guru his whole life, asked SSB:
"Swami, something has happened here. Water is around this box. These saris will get wet. (Swami removed the cover of the box and those of us who were standing there could see that the edges of the saris were wet. The cardboard box with four saris in it was lying on a table at the Dharmakshetra in Bombay. Swami had selected 96 saris for distribution to some lady volunteers, and of the 100 brought for His insepction, four were replaced in the box to be returnedlater to the merchant. The table was not close to any source of water, and Hislop, several other men, and Swami had been standing there from the time the saris were examined one by one, by Swami.)
Sai: "The saris are weeping because Swami has rejected them. Now, I will take them."
Hislop: Swami! "How could that be? Does Swami say that inanimate objects have injured feelings and can weep?"
Sai: "Inanimate objects are also capable of feeling joy and grief. When the bridge towards Lanka was built by the monkeys so that Rama could march to Ravana's kingdom where Sita was held captive, one last mountain peak was carried to the bridge site. But it was too late. There was no need for it. At this circumstance the mountain shed tears of anguish, and news of this was quickly taken to Rama. His compassion was great, and he sent word that the mountain should no longer sorrow, that he would surely use it on a future occasion. In the Avathara of Krishna, it was this very mountain peak, the Govadhana Peak, which the youth, Krishna, lifted on his finger to shelter the cowherds of Gokul from Indra's deluge of rain."
Hislop: "Swami! This great drama of Rama and Krishna and the mountain peak has been recapitulated here in Bombay on this day before our very eyes... (etc..)
Sai: "Yes. And it is also the self-same Rama and the self-same Krishna who is here this day."
Do these 'animated saris' tale need any comment? It certainly seems it does, if only because many devotees believe it, especially those misguided Hindu Sai-devotees! Not only does this conflict with other 'teachings' of SSB about the differences between the various realms of beings, but it makes one think that SSB is seeing just how far he can push the credulity of a man who held a Western Ph.D, as did Dr. Hislop. Hislop retold the story with relish and naive faith! One would think that such a person must at least have passed the test of 'blind belief' that SSB has set up for a true devotee etc. and qualified for 'liberation'? But no, we are told by Hislop in his last book that Sathya Sai Baba told him he must be reborn again, even though he had seen the so-called 'lingodbhava' many times and had worked ceaseless for SSB for decades! A dis-grace!
