The Space-Daddy Bomber

File under: The Siddhi of PR

The Lord works in mysterious ways. Sometimes he shows up in your cockpit as your MiG is going down for good:
"In 1966 I was flying an MiG aircraft in the north-east of India. The controls failed. I had a vision of my guru Hari Baba. He appeared in the cockpit of the plane and helped me land safely. So I decided to start another life," he says.
That life is now known as Pilot Baba. He's currently working it at the Ardh Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, complete with machine gun-armed guards and displays of his prowess at the display of states of samadhi. In between performances, he receives visitors and offers his blessings as the bomber space-daddy:
Many of his followers say Pilot Baba has special healing powers.

The claim may be questionable, but in the few hours I have spent with him, there has been a constant stream of visitors who have come to seek his blessings, many of them from as far away as Japan, Europe and the US.
We salute Pilot Baba for at least putting on a show with his space-daddying. It's a lot more than you'll get from a Kracki or a Sri Sri, who offer empty platitudes with no displays of yogic talents, although they do make good examples for aspiring criminal flimflammers.

Pilot Baba was one of the many gurus on crack featured in the 2004 documentary "Kumbh Mela" (or "Short Cut to Nirvana.")

It's on DVD now and guruphiliacs who haven't seen it are missing a real hoot.

Chuck ! Engage your grand momma and poppa guides and checkout this bhabha and tell us wtf this bhabha is all about???.

But chuck ! what impresses me is that a schmuck like you can have such insightful ancetors?

I also wonder how in the fuck your grand momma and poppa display such intution which was totally absent when they were alive?

If death makes a skunk so wise, then chucky boy!!! its worth you give it a try than opening your mouthful of ignorance here...

Jody, finally your term 'space daddy' has been given a real form, shape and shit ! This baba literally is from the space !

But does he have the satsang in the cock pit sometimes?

I agree with you Jody that Pilot Baba puts on a good show. I saw a video of Kumbh Mela which featured Pilot Baba and his Japanese Swami. He looked cool in his black berret. He's like Sant Keshavadas who also put on a good show using music. You got your money's worth but not much more. In the end this video made the entire Kumbh Mela look cheap and false to my eyes.

Maybe I'm ready for Vedanta.

I refuse to believe that the real semblance would stoop to talking about my grandparents like this. This is a fake semblance! No way the real one would stoop so low.

By the way I also saw this dvd. I liked one guy on there named "Motorcycle Baba", I think. He seemed very happy just riding around on his motorbike. Try it sometimes fake semblance!

I saw him one day in 2001 at the Kumbha Mela..he and the Japanese "devi" who got her self buried alive for three days...also hanging out with them, a weird "African-American Baba", wearing a combination of Masai warrior's clothing and swami paraphenalia. they were all making much of their "high state"...smile and laugh! nobody was paying them much attention except very old village ladies, Japanese tourists, journalists and lots of Westerners...kind of like a little "mini-sideshow" in the middle of some pretty heavy duty stuff. All of the sadhus who drag cars around by their penises and stick knives into their tongues were there, all right. If that's what you wanted to see, it was possible to ignore everything else...but what a waste of time..just like that movie, "Short Cut to Nirvana"..what a waste of time!
