The "Sai Krishna" Picture Imbroglio PART THREE

Even if it is so that the two pictures need to be seen for themselves, side-by-side, here they are. See the difference!

In another post I provided a commentary on both the photos. Regarding the "Sai Krishna" version, I noted how convenient it was for the edges of the photo to be blacked out. I speculated that this could be because the producer of this photo wanted to erase as much of the original picture as possible just in case anybody recognised it as an ISKCON picture. Even with the considerable blackout, a gopi can be seen clearly. Also, the colour of the face is different from that of the arms. In the ISKCON edition, the full picture can be seen (wonder of wonders!), the colour of Krishna's face and arms is consistent and the gopi can be fully seen. If that isn't obvious enough, I don't know what is.

To erase all doubt, I posted both the pictures in the 'Photos' section of the club just in case anyone else - in the future - would ridiculously attempt to argue that both the pictures should be seen side-by-side. I then penned a post concluding that, considering all of the available evidence that was plain for all to see, it is obvious that the "Sai Krishna miracle photo" is a proven fraud and should be treated as such. Of course I also noted how LDW seemed to have no comment on the matter, which was hardly surprising.


Speaking of surprise, one has to wonder what Sai Baba himself thinks of all these shenanigans. A devotee incidentally posted a link in the Yahoo Groups that detailed an interview transcript by Connie Shaw which apparently occurred in January 1992. Veterans will remember that Connie Shaw is the devotee who is famous for documenting and speaking on the healings that have occurred via the infamous 'Golden Lingam' photo. I believe that she has written a book of her experiences, as well as maintaining a devotional website. By all accounts, I think her words would be reliable. Interestingly, Shaw appears to have spoken to Sai Baba about this very photo. It's worth reading just to see what Sai Baba says:

Connie showed Baba the recent photo making the rounds and asked if the so-called Krishna photo with Baba's face on it were legitimate, as it looked very suspicious to her and she suspected it was a computer rendering with a fraudulent story attached to the photo re its origen[sic]. Baba said, "This is artificial. It is (like a) painting." Connie asked, "You mean, as on the computer, Swami?" Baba replied, "Yes, I don't like artificial (things). He tossed it down. Connie thanked Him for confirming it.

And here is a screenshot of the exchange that, at the time of writing, is still online on Shaw's webspace:

After noting how I should explain to Shaw that, rather than believe Sai Baba's explanation, she should be apprised of the facts regarding this picture; how it is really an ISKCON picture with Krishna's face cut out and replaced with Sai Baba's sneery mug. Lisa then burst forth with:

The truth is that probably someone like you from ISKCON created the fake in an attempt to discredit Sai Baba. Just think, he knows who it is.


Conveniently forgetting that I was a Sai devotee at the time this all took place on the Sai Unity group, the entire incident shows that I had nothing to lose (or gain) by testifying that this picture was a fraud. In fact, I could have kept quiet and allowed my fellow devotees to delude themselves that this was a miracle picture. "Wow! Sai Baba shows himself as Krishna! Wow wow!" It only showed that I have a great love for the truth and I cannot stand to see untruth reign, even if it meant sacrificing the credibility of my then guru. And truth will always reveal itself.

This is also an appropriate place to speak a little about denial. In regards to this issue, it had been claimed that:

- This issue had been discussed and resolved on the Sai Unity group.

- I provided direct links to the posts (and attachments) at hand.

- I uploaded them to the 'Photos' section for all to see for themselves.

- I commented on the inconsistencies of the photos.

- Sai Baba himself apparently confirmed that this photo was a fake.

We can easily see that LDW was all along operating on the understanding that the "Sai Krishna" photo was a real miracle photo, and that it was upto me to prove it's fradulence. Having proved it, to be accused of being an ISKCON agent and creating a photo to discredit Sai Baba is truly a subject where the denial of the devotees becomes apparent. Denial? What about brainwashing? In response to that, Lisa screamed:

You're the one who's brainwashed. You can ONLY view things from ONE perspective because you are so brainwashed by your OWN stupidity. Facts don't matter to you because you love your lies. You're so perverted you think it's funny people might die as long as it's for a good cause you slimey [sic] piece of mud.

'Nuff said.

UPDATE April 4 2006 - This picture has surfaced again, this time attached with a different story. It is a source of constant bewilderment to me how Sai devotees thoughtlessly and recklessly indulge in mischievous propaganda in order to uplift the flagging profile of their ailing guru.

  • I did read the article till the end and what Sai Baba said is true, the "photo" is fake, computer-made. As I wrote in the previous comment, I think the problem is not really related to Sai Baba himself - it's a kind of insane product by the psychologically disturbed imagination and wicked attitude of such self-claimed devotees who are truly acting contrary to Baba, even if in their madness they think they're promoting him. And I'm sure ISKCON has nothing to do with such fraud cos the paintings are NOT the same. If you observe the clothes and the garland, they're different, ISKCON's painting is one and the "Sai Krishna"'s another, both of Krishna in the same pose, the same clothes, the same background, but they're definitely different, observe the details in the flowers of both garlands and the collars and in the background too. Truly, I think such "devotees" used a picture that is an art from the galleries of the Sai Baba of India website. There's the same Sai Krishna picture there and it's clearly posted as a computer art, no claiming of miracle or something, it's a very known session of the site full of wallpapers and other computer arts for devotees. If you search in the wallpapers sessions there you'll find it, it's in the Sai Krishna session there.
