What can Sai orgn. leaders do if some Sai devotees (including Sai university alumni and former teachers, warden & vice-chancellor) choose to not listen to them when the Sai orgn. leaders share Swami's words/instructions (not their own words, but SWAMI'S WORDS/INSTRUCTIONS) given in public discourses, to Sai devotees to ignore claims of mediums (and communicators)?
In a recent FB post sharing Dr Narendranath Reddy, Prasanthi Council chairman (international org. chairman)'s, June 2014 message to Sai devotees sharing Swami's words/instructions to ignore mediums (and communicators), http://www.sathyasai.org/files2014/20140610FollowtheDivineMaster.pdf, I made the following comment which I felt appropriate to share as a Facebook post itself (slightly edited):
I recall this from last year. Dr. N. Reddy has categorically and unequivocally condemned Muddenahalli (MDH) chosen communicator and subtle body claim using Swami's own words from public discourses. I think that is a very clear signal from Dr. N. Reddy as PC chairman to all Sai devotees who care to listen to him. Perhaps the problem in the international Sai orgn. is that some Sathya Sai devotees are choosing to ignore Swami's own words from public discourses, as stated above by Dr. N. Reddy (and elsewhere by other leaders of the Sai orgn. including Prof. Anil Kumar Kamaraju, Prof. G. Venkataraman (Radio Sai) and Shri V. Srinivasan (All India chairman, and trustee, SSSCT)). Now I honestly think that it perhaps has been and continues to be the destiny of some Sathya Sai devotees to get caught up in the MDH false belief. Their Karma, as we say in India. In fact, I now feel that MDH subtle body claims have been a very big spiritual test in the post-Mahasamadhi phase of Sathya Sai mission. Those who had a good understanding of Swami's teachings in this regard and/or followed the words of the official Sai orgn. leaders mentioned above, were able to reject MDH claims and stay away from it.
