Why I Left Sai Baba (in brief)
At some point in the future I would like to discuss this matter in some depth as I feel that it is a story worth telling. In the meantime I would like to post my reply to a similar query that was asked of me not so long ago, as a provisional and brief explanation of why I came to leave Sai Baba:
"While there were several troubling issues surrounding Sai Baba, the daddy of them all was how I was finding it increasingly impossible to reconcile his teachings with the true tradition of Sanathana Dharma that I had studied and been brought up in. I happen to be philosophically inclined and it was very hard for me to come to terms with the very real discrepancies that exist in his works, not to mention giving up my deep and reverent faith in 'God walking the earth', to whom I had given ten years of my life.
"After spending a long period of time in reflection, I decided that I had to be honest and admit the truth at least to myself. I felt that it would be extremely dishonest and dishonourable to continue with what I was beginning to perceive as a farce and thus, in the interests of truth and goodness, I discontinued my faith and belief in Sai Baba.
"I initially desired to quietly walk away from the situation and lead a peaceful life away from this fiasco, but on the encouragement of some very great ex-devotee friends I had made I was encouraged to stay and helpfully contribute to the efforts to bring Sai Baba to justice. I also felt that discussion of Sai Baba's philosophical inconsistencies and deviations, a subject that has received sparse treatment thus far, was an area that would be fulfilling. And so I carry on with this work up to this day."
