Muddenahalli Exposed By Trustees of Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust

Sathya Sai Baba in the early days. Under the old Banyan Tree in Whitefield.

Hoping this will be the last post warning folks against the nefarious Muddenahalli influence. Readers who may not have interest in Sathya Sai Baba living or dead, will not find fault in many of his famous quotations. Here’s several that I simply cannot forget. I publish them once again as a reminder of what Sai Baba always said time and time again.   “There’s nothing between you and me and the Divine, for the Light Source dwells in your heart.”

There are saints and sages born from time to time, each one will have his own characteristics and ways of  passing on knowledge. Some are sombre and say little. Others are more out-going and easier to understand. Others are just  not that easy to follow.  Sathya Sai Baba was never easy to understand nor follow but that does not mean his words were not simple, clear  and sincere. Eve

Do not be misled by what you see around you, or be influenced by what you see. You live in a world which is a playground of illusion, full of false paths, false values and false ideals. But you are not part of that world.”   ~ Sathya Sai Baba

When a person asserts that he is low and mean and that he knows but little, he becomes low and mean and his knowledge shrinks.We become what we believe we are. We are children of Almighty God, endowed with Supreme, Power, Glory and Wisdom.We are children of Immortality.When we dwell in this thought, how can we ever be low and ignorant?

– Sathya Sai Baba

MUDDENAHALLI FRAUDS EXPOSED BY TRUSTEES OF OF SRI SATHYA SAI CENTRAL TRUST

Taken from Sanathana Sarathi publication May 2017

Bhagavan has made it clear any number of times in unambiguous and unequivocal terms that His relationship with devotees is not at a physical level but is at the Atmic level, i.e., Heart-to-heart and Love-to-love. How can there be any agents, media or intermediaries between Him and His devotees when He resides in our hearts?

While delivering His Divine Discourse on 25th May 1975, during the Seva Dal Conference, Bhagavan emphasised this truth. “When someone does a few funny tricks saying he is possessed by Swami or is receiving instructions from Him, our own Seva Dal members are going to such individuals and encouraging them. When you have got a direct access to Bhagavan Himself, where is the need for you to go to these ‘duplicate’ swamis?” He questioned.

He also said on 25th March 1965: “Many persons have also started using My name for the purpose of collecting money for various purposes or material. If such men come to you, send them back with the admonition that they are doing wrong. I ask for Bhakti, Sraddha, Sadhana (devotion, faith and spiritual discipline) – purification of hearts – that is all. Only beggars ask for money; I will never associate Myself with the temporary, the tarnished, the tawdry and the mean. Then, there are some who proclaim that I am “coming upon someone” and speaking through him! They pretend to be My mouthpieces and communicate to others My advice and My suggestions, as if I have ‘authorised’ them or as if I am Myself telling so through them. Now hear this. I never speak through another; I never possess another or use another as a vehicle of expression. I come direct, I come straight, I come as I am, to confer peace and joy”.

Showing utter disregard to Bhagavan’s message in this regard, some selfish individuals are committing the most heinous sacrilege of betraying Bhagavan Himself. They have made Muddenahalli as the centre of their nefarious activities and are going to various parts of the country as also to several overseas countries with the ulterior motive of luring innocent devotees with their cheap tricks and collecting funds. In the process, they are making a mockery of spirituality itself by declaring that Swami speaks through so and so while misinterpreting and distorting His message to suit their own selfish ends. How foolish is it to say that so and so is possessed by our Swami, who is the Antaryami (indweller) of all! Instead of making efforts to follow His teachings and ideals, they are even indulging in the most atrocious and deplorable act of imitating His movements and gestures. What is even more appalling is that those committing this sacrilege are causing untold confusion in the minds of innocent devotees all over the world. These are some of the so-called close devotees who enjoyed Swami’s Divine Love in abundance while He was in His physical form. Needless to say, getting carried away by their fraudulent activities amounts to belittling the All-Pervasive and All-Pervading principle of Bhagavan’s Cosmic Reality.

The Samadhi of Baba, Puttaparthi

Bhagavan established Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust in the year 1972, keeping the welfare of society in view and with the sole objective of offering loving and selfless service to humanity at large. Devotees are well aware of the promise Bhagavan made to Divine Mother Easwaramma that He would always remain in Puttaparthi and make this sacred land the centre of His Avataric Mission forever. Accordingly, He Himself established a number of Educational Institutions and Hospitals apart from undertaking various social welfare projects, under the auspices of Central Trust, providing relief and succour to millions.

However, after Bhagavan’s Maha Samadhi, some individuals, due to their limitless thirst for money and power, have stooped so low as to say that Bhagavan is roaming in Muddenahalli in His subtle form and is asking them to build schools, colleges and hospitals. By enacting a cleverly orchestrated ‘drama’, they are taking innocent and gullible devotees for a ride, collecting money from them in the name of Swami, and in the process, flouting the principles and dicta Bhagavan exemplified.

We, on behalf of Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust, hereby declare that the Central Trust has nothing to do with those individuals and the institutions run by them. Devotees are hereby informed to follow this cautionary note as a guideline from the Trust and refrain from associating themselves with such individuals and institutions.

To this day we use flowers to communicate feelings and messages.  In reality, there are no rules to what flower represents a purpose for giving; it’s the sentiment and thought that represents each occasion.  Sometimes a specific flower or color will trigger a memory, special event or personal meaning.  Others love to send flowers specifically for their language or meaning. With Valentine’s day just around the corner, you might expect that red roses imply romance and love, pink roses as an expression of admiration, and yellow roses stand for friendship and devotion.  But with the wide variety of flowers and colors available, different flowers represent different forms of affection and messages.

 

The following meanings from Blossom Town website:

 

  1. Red Roses: A red rose is an unmistakable expression of love. Red roses convey deep emotions – be it love, longing or desire. Red Roses can also be used to convey respect, admiration or devotion. A deep red rose can be used to convey heartfelt regret and sorrow. The number of red roses has special romantic meanings associated with them. 12 red roses is the most popular of all which conveys “Be mine” and “I love you” White Roses: White is the color of purity, chastity and innocence. White flowers are generally associated with new beginnings and make an ideal accompaniment to a first-time bride walking down the aisle.
  2. Yellow Roses: Yellow roses are an expression of exuberance. Yellow roses evoke sunny feelings of joy, warmth and welcome. They are symbols of friendship and caring. The yellow rose, like the other roses, does not carry an undertone of romance. It indicates purely platonic emotions.
  3. Pink Roses: There are a lot of variations of the pink rose. Over all, pink roses are used to convey gentle emotions such as admiration, joy and gratitude. Light pink rose blooms are indicative of sweetness and innocence. Deep pink rose blooms convey deep gratitude and appreciation. Pink roses also connote elegance and grace.
  4.  A variety of meanings. Who knows!

“There are no coincidences in life. What person that wandered in and out of your life was there for some purpose, even if they caused you harm. Sometimes, it doesn’t make sense the short periods of time we get with people, or the outcomes from their choices. However, if you turn it over to God he promises that you will see the big picture in the hereafter. Nothing is too small to be a mistake.”

Tantrayana, Short excerpt From Arnaud Desjardins – Religion

 

Tibetan tantra - yab-yum
Tibetan tantra – yab-yum

Tantrayana or Tantra means  loosely – “Sacred teachings” – (thankas) often written in book form and then handed down to a younger generation for study. Tantra teachings consist of diagrams, images, and symbolism. There is not one iota of pornography in Tibetan tantrism.

My original idea for this post was to use a short excerpt from Arnaud Desjardin’s  “Message Of The Tibetans.”  I see though, it is a deep philosophy and perhaps a clearer explanation in plain and simple English is better used here. I have kept the Desjardin excerpt, in part, because it’s extremely interesting, while  expressing the qualities of  male and female within us all. Also the idea of non-dualism. One without a second. Advaita.  

A very special book on Early Women in Tantra Buddhism.

http://books.google.fr/books/about/Passionate_Enlightenment.html?id=dahS9CHLfXoC&redir_esc=y

“The practice of having female companions for meditation is called ” the union of voidness and happiness” or the union of the two polarities (yab-yum). This practice, based on the theory of the Mahavairocana-sutra and the Vajrasekhara-sutra, is a distinctive feature of the Esoteric Buddhism. Sex is strictly forbidden by the Exoteric Buddhism, but it is part of meditation practice in the Esoteric Buddhism. As Vajrasekhara-sutra says, “How pure is man’s mind! It’s only natural that lust should change him. Keeping away from lust will restore purity in him, and keeping away from lust means conquering it with another form of lust.” Sex is thus shrouded in mysticism and given the role of “conquering lust”. It becomes a mean by which the follower of the Esoteric Buddhism can achieve self-purification of his nature. According to the Esoteric Buddhism, “the attraction of lust will draw one into the realm of the wisdom of the Buddha”, that is, by means of carnal love the bodhisattva leads one to liberation. This accounts for the fact that the Esoteric Buddhism treats women as offerings. What “The Collected Works of Buddhism Literature” terms as “love for offerings”: refers to the love for women. This theme is repeated in the Mahavairocana-sutra, which says,”Satisfy the desire for sex so that all beings will be happy.” According to the Esoteric Buddhism, Mahavairocana lives in Heaven like an earthy being- accompanied by the Marici (Queen of Heaven) and surrounded by female attendants. As a result, the rajas (devas and vajras), instructed by Mahavairocana to subdue demons, are in their “wrathful forms” accompanied by devis, their female counterparts.”

Message From The Tibetans

Why all this symbolism of the union of the sexes, what the Tibetans call ‘yab-yam’? Several works associate the Tibetan concept with the Hindu term ‘shakti’. And most certainly, the Hindu images of sexual union, which are equally numerous and equally sacred, represent the union of the God with his ‘shakti’, where the God is considered as passive non-acting and his ‘shakti’ being his power of manifestation, thus active and acting, although feminine.

But the Tibetans never use either the word or the idea of  “shakti” and although the identification of Hindu with Buddhist Tantrism may be justified at a pretty deep level of understanding, this is not the case at the level of outward formulation. For example, in Tibetan Buddhism, contrary to Hinduism, it is the masculine principle which is active and dynamic and the feminine principle which is passive and static. The best use of the word ‘yum’ would be “spouse.” And it is obvious that the purpose of this symbolism is to represent the union of a married couple engaged in the sexual act.

Why choose this? This is the very heart of both Vedantist and Mahayana metaphysics. When Hindus speak of Reality, of Unity (there is no place for  “Two”), they never use the word “Monism” but the term non-dualism, “Advaita” . It is an attempt at the impossible; to describe what is indescribable, supreme reality.

But sages are in agreement that it is non-dualistic. And yet, it is this unity of two, which is symbolized by their statues, murals and paintings/ thankas, representing Tantric divinities in sexual union with their spouses. This non-dualism is the union of prajna with upaya. Prajna, wisdom, infinite consciousness, is feminine, passive, non-manifest. Upaya, activity is masculine, dynamic, manifest. It is compassion, the heart, united to wisdom, the head.

The Tibetans will never speak of Reality as being beyond appearances, of Shunyata beyond Samsara. No, Reality and appearance are one and the same thing. Two sides of one coin. Unity in diversity  IS unity, this is the great experience, or realization, as Tibetans like to describe it.

Another meaning of the sexual symbolism of the Tantras is that in every man and woman there exists a masculine and feminine principle. And often, when the Tantras speak of the union of man and woman, there exists a masculine and feminine principle.
