Sai Baba and the ban-gurus

Sathya Sai Speaks:

"In this Kali Yuga also such imitations are cropping up just as Paundraka shaped himself into a Vasudeva [Krishna]. We have today even Sathya Sai Babas. They get the same type of robe stitched, they strain themselves to cultivate the crown of hair, they study photographs and hold their hands up very nearly like I do and make themselves ridiculous by frantic attempts to imitate Me. They forget that 'imitation is only human; but, Creation is Divine.'


"Those who attempt to become Sathya Sai Babas by this ludicrous process of imitation only destroy whatever faith some people have placed in the Divine. They are poisonous pests which injure the peace and harmony of society. They collect around themselves insects of like nature. For only birds of the same feather can flock together. These 'pretenders' fall into ruin themselves and bring ruin on the society where they operate, as the proverbial horde of monkeys that ruin themselves and bring ruin on the forest which they inhabit."

Despite the harsh rhetoric, Sathya Sai Babas have been cropping up all over the place. Just as he predicted, they have indeed taken to growing their hair, copying his gestures, and have even made several visits to the tailor. Looks like Sai Baba can do nothing about that except scream, shout, stamp his little lotus feet, and then sulk about everyone wanting a piece of his pie:



With this blog, I'll be intending to keep track of all the Sai Babas wherever they are and whatever they're doing while pretending to be the real deal.

Job well done!
I also found another intresting *Godess*. This claims to be Sathya Sai Baba's eternal spouse. Check out:

Another interesting *Goddess*, called Amma as well:
www.amma.org

Quoted from her official site:

Meeting Amma- Darshan
The Sanskrit term darshan means, "vision", and it is used to describe the meeting with a holy person, especially a Self Realized master. Amma's darshan in unique. As the embodiment of supreme motherhood, she welcomes every person who comes to her, listens to his or her problems, offers advice and guidance, and brings reassurance to a troubled heart.

Hi, thanks for all the positive feedback!

Beranrd, thanks a lot. I know about Amma (Ammachi) but I don't think that she's suitably material for this blog, as I'd like to focus on Sai Baba's copycats rather than other gurus out there. Maybe in the future.

Devaran's "Amma" seems to be an interesting case. While not strictly a "copycat", she's definitely a leech of sorts and may earn her own page.

Hi Dave,

here are a couple of posts where I've briefly touched on your question before:


The Initiation

Why I Left Sai Baba (in brief)

Hope that helps.

Oh, so I have competition? ;-)

Anyhow, let me know when the metamorphosis is complete so that I may pay my respects to you. :-)

This blog is destructive. You would do more good if you focused on the positive aspects of people who have become teachers and guides for seekers.
